Black women, there is an article out there in the online universe that shows concern for a phenomena that directly affects you. According to the author of the article, the black woman is desensitizing her man with her big, sexy ass and causing her man to be more aggressive than normal.
Okay, okay, okay! Before you go off about this being some white supremacist rhetoric about black men becoming savages due to the black woman’s naturally endowed gluteus maximus, you should know it is nothing like that. This is a black woman who dares to care about the numerous levels of abuse black women endure while objectifying themselves with their “ass.”
In one part of the essay called “The Energy of the Black Woman’s Ass”, she says:
“The Ass in this culture has an aggressive ENERGY and tantalizes men and they will make the Ass submissive through rough sex. .”
Her article could be written off if she wasn’t so passionately explaining the importance of black women maintaining a more rigid set of standards when it comes to the glory of her body. She talks about the misogynistic rap lyrics, the acceptance of those lyrics by black women, and how black women are losing their spirituality to a culture that, apparently, she believes the black woman is creating. The eloquently, crass essay begins like this underneath the photo of a nearly bare ass (save a g-string), black woman in front of a mirror:
“You just want to stick a fork in this Ass, so a man’s dick becomes the fork. A man will want to find a way to destroy it somehow, make it react somehow. Just like the Bubble wrap you find in the box of an electronics item. You have the URGE of wanting to pop each and every bubble, you will attempt to squeeze each one. You like the sound of the bubble wrap popping and “Lord help the bubble wrap because you will pop each bubble.”
She gets straight to the point, doesn’t she? (no pun intended) For effect, she peppers the essay with soft pornographic images of black women to give a clear example of what she means by the irresponsible and “low standards of Black women in this generation.”
Then she goes to the physical ramifications of the sexual abuse black women experience. Now, we have run stories on booty shots, and just Monday, a story on April Brown, who is a multiple amputee because of complications with her butt injections. But nothing has touched on vaginal cysts that occur as a result of aggressive sex. The Bartholin Cyst is a fascinating tidbit she explores with photos and other women’s accounts of the disorder:
“This is why they have vagina problems. After doing research into aggressive brutal sex many women who allow this type of ENERGY into their lives not only suffer trauma similar to a rape victim but they get Bartholin Cysts and other conditions they fail to realize they will get due to rough sex. Though many women suffer the trauma rape victims suffer, they convince themselves it’s enjoyable because it’s in line with how they are being programmed a man is suppose to handle their bodies.”
Butt injections are one indicator that exhibits black women’s fascination with fine-tuning that area cosmetically to enhance what? Image? Job opportunities? Keeping up with the stereotypes? Why are black women taking such a risk to enhance that particular area? She has started a conversation that may be destructive in some ways, but helpful in others. The destructive nuance in the essay is exemplified in a sort of “blaming the victim” angle she subtly approaches. But, to suggest that black women should be tardy for the party and leave a little more to the imagination, couldn’t hurt a bit.
Before you write off the penetrating article as hogwash or some type of Shahrazad Ali type of rant that is totally unsupported by black women, maybe you should read it and check out the comments that follow it. You may be thoroughly surprised.
