I asked my dad about this(he is career military) his response was that the military's responsibility is to:
1.)Protect Americas borders
2.)Kill enemies, cripple and destroy their livelihood and win wars
In other words there is zero room for individuality and feelings. Sounds cold but it's true. You cannot expect a soldier to follow orders when self expression reigns supreme? He has also seen white women reprimanded over hairstyles and fashion statements, so this is really making a big deal out of nothing.

This may surprise a lot of people but throughout Russia Caucasian people(Georgians, Armenians, Chechens, Dagestanis etc.) are called "black asses" and are not considered white by quite a few. Caucasian means white in America and other western nations, in Russia and eastern Europe there is white, and there is Caucasian they are not the same thing. In America Kim Kardashian is white, elsewhere she is "ethnic" just as an example.

Some people just get butt hurt easily and feel you are "judging" them if you do not want to be a single mother,if yiu are a single mother looking to marry, or have a child out of wedlock. Encouraging marriage will generally get you flamed(heck I have been flamed and jumped on for expecting monogamy and having basic standards).
It's so nice to see people called on their BS isn't it?
"What about the brothas in Europe? You're just encouraging black women to look at white men."
I just hate seeing women defend crap behavior from males. I am no feminist, but these chicks are delusional if they think they can convince these hateful men that they are "good women". It's like really? These men would have no problem using you as human toilet paper and throwing you down the drain when they are done. They have already stated that they think all black women are ugly, disgusting whores, what makes you think they will make an exception for you? It's like me trying to convince a neo-Nazi that multiracial and black women can be beautiful, or coming to the aid of the KKK when their videos get flamed- a complete waste of time and energy.
I know it's crazy! I am better now but if I ever went off the rails like that again I would go back to counseling immediately. The thing is anxiety and a predisposition to depression never fully go away, they can be managed and improved, but not fully cured. Now I try to live as healthily as possible and avoid negativity(I was never put on medication, but if it ever came to that I would consider it).
I am an aging emo misanthrope, I expect the worst from people and that is a real hurdle to get over, this site is encouraging and has helped me see that there is such a thing as love and kindness.

All I can say is you need to focus on validating yourself. Having men falling over you is not a measure of how valuable you are. It only takes one man, not 120. Sure it's nice to receive attention and compliments, but at the end of the day that does not define you. So many black women gauge their self worth on meaningless factors, it's quality, not quantity. These studies hurt, and I can see how some women get discouraged while reading them, but remember that your worth is not solely based on replies on an online dating app.

Such a beautiful girl, how sad RIP, you are gone but never forgotten.
The stigma of mental health is mad real in the black community. Plenty of black women have PTSD,Social Anxiety, and severe depression yet nothing is done to help them. Even my own father(who is a healthcare professional) stigmatizes mental health issues. His conspiracy is that if you are on anti-depressants then no one will hire you(it will ruin your career). Me going to counseling for depression as a young teen "disappointed him in ways he could not describe, he was thoroughly ashamed of me". I never forgot that.
Ditto, if you listen to studies like this then you will be depressed and miserable.
Love Urban Decay! Naked 2 is my go-to palette. I am unsure about bold colors, I want to experiment(I am 23 and now is the time to play with my look), but I am just so partial to darker tones(aging emo side effect).

1 week, 1 day ago on Urban Decay Wants You To Wear Color This Spring. A LOT of It.
Some white women are infuriated that they are being passed up in favor of women of color. Really, who didn't see this coming? I remember throughout my teen years(2004-2010) the "it girls" included Halle Berry, Beyoncé, Jessica Alba, Kristin Kreuk, Jennifer Lopez, and Lucy Liu. Naomi Campbell still had it and was(and still is) reining queen of the runway, Alek Wek was popping up all over the place, Zoe Saldana began her career, and Victoria's secret began hiring some of the most physically striking women of color for their runway shows and catalogue. In other words WOC(especially black women) began to level the playing field in new ways.
Being thin, white and young(18-25) was the prevailing beauty standard, until recently no one would argue with that. Now, it takes a little more than that to hold attention. Blonde, blue eyed and white is the ideal beauty to many, and these people are devastated to see someone who does not fit that description be placed above it. Some girls cannot fathom how a black girl would be chosen over the white blonde girl.
The stereotype was "only low value white men want a non white woman", now we are seeing handsome, well to do white men wifeing up these women at an alarming rate. In other words black women are taking the prime rib and not scrapple. This infuriates some women to no end.
My advice to all black women would be improve yourself, be open, and make yourself attractive as possible, and let the chips fall where they may. Oh, and ignore the haters, get used to the pettiness, it's all jealousy.

Speaking of Dencia:
Gotta hand it to these chicks though, they have managed to join the tabloid/sideshow fodder elite. Hopefully a new sideshow will upstage them soon.
This is why I avoid most black oriented websites, ZERO mention of the OOW birthrate and ZERO mention of the abuse young black women deal with. I agree with Chris 100% if there was more concern over both genders then it would not be so irritating, but all of the studies are one-sided. Many fail to realize that we can help black boys by making them compete in society like other men and not coddling them. I guess all the young black girls and women in need of help are just not important enough, they have to hold down the 'hood, remember?

Common sense people, common sense.
WHAT THE ACTUAL F*CK IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE THESE DAYS?!
Prison with no possibility of parole, he raped a baby and admits to abusing other children. I fully believe in prison reform but some people have gone above and beyond the definition of disgusting and have earned the right to be trapped in a hellhole 24/7 for the rest of their natural lives. Abusers with money and influence feel as though they are above the law and need to be locked up away from society. Probation only solidifies this belief, he pretty much got away with it.
Power and influence(no matter how minute it may seem) definitely play a role in legal proceedings, if you think otherwise then you are naïve.
It's like this D-list has been pop star from the UK(big from 2004-2008 but fell off past that, I remember several friends being fans), he was so confident that he wouldn't get caught that he had no problem bragging about his activities and has zero remorse, and plenty of people were more than happy to cover for him. At least he is actually going to prison, but the whole thing probably would have been taken seriously if it was just a run of the mill guy off the street(the scope of this is just massive).
Blackistanis get a pass because this sort of behavior is expected from them. The victim blaming is out of control and is seen as a part of "black culture". Basically the legal system expects black people to act like animals so disgusting behavior is not taken as seriously. The sad part is blackistan is ready to co-sign, all while failing to see how truly insulting this notion is.

"Cute... I thought the post had the whiff of neo-nazism to it."
A lot of MRA's are racist and a lot of the "manosphere" has racial undertones. It's really a bunch of losers blaming women for their problems. And what's with the Asian male bashing? A lot of Asian men are quite attractive and not "short and nerdy" in the least.
2 weeks, 3 days ago on White Feminist Pretending To Be “Concerned” for Asian Women Marrying White Men…Yeah Right!
I find it funny as well because a lot of MRA sites have racist undertones, and many of the users bash women for "abandoning them for black cock".
I don't like MRA's(a lot of these guys just hate women outright) but I do agree with them on custody and alimony. The child should go to the most fit parent, and alimony should only be used for the disadvantaged spouse to get their feet on the ground(say 6 months or so).
The black men supporting MRA's want to escape responsibility, so running to MRA's while kissing feminist ass isn't going to do anything. Again like feminism this is something that started off as a valid cause but degraded into a hate filled "movement" full of beta individuals.
Again MRA's, black women bashers and feminists are all people that can't compete in society and seek to level the playing field by lowering standards. #notimeforbullshit
I read the article, the follow up and browsed through Anne Gus's other works, needless to say, the author is a run-of-the-mill "empowered" pseudo-intellectual that has convinced themselves that they are "witty" and "edgy" when in reality they are an attention starved simpleton.
Here is my overall opinion:
-I hope this is all a joke, there is no way in hell that anyone can be this stupid, annoying and all around pathetic. I am a recovering misanthrope, and reading bullshit like this
-23 is way too old for this sort of immature drivel. 23 is not old, but by your early 20's this sort of immature rant masked as "concern" is overdone, it should have ended when you graduated high school. Pitiful, just pitiful.
-There was no concern over white men dating interracially until non-white women started dating good-looking, successful white men. If non-white women stayed dating the comic book nerd or computer geek in his mom's basement then everyone would be happy. Expect more articles like this aimed at black women, because lord knows no attractive successful white man would even think about touching a non-white woman.
-We don't care that you "look like a model with piercing blue eyes". We also do not care that frat boys are salivating over you and your friends. If your article was solid then you would not have to back pedal and list inane bullshit to back it up.
-It's 2014 and people can and will date whoever they want. White men do not belong to you. Has it ever occurred to you that maybe it's not a "fetish" and the white man in question genuinely finds the Asian woman he is with attractive? Maybe he likes her as a person as well? He might even *gasp* be in love with her?
That's all for now folks, I need to get some sleep.

The same goes for all the light skin and/or mixed race women that think they get a pass and constantly complain that "dark skinned women are so jealous of my hair and features". It's BS, as soon as they do something to piss these men off(it doesn't take much), they will be thrown into the pit of hades. These women are delusional and stupid. Co-signing hate filled bullshit will not get you anywhere in life.
I was about 16 or so when I first discovered these assholes. It can't say it didn't impact my self esteem. I am 23 now and all I can do is laugh, these assholes are still living in their mothers basement, but I am moving on in life. In hindsight I feel stupid allowing their comments to affect my sense of self worth.
It is funny that these men are perpetually single, unemployed and truly have nothing going for them(really pathetic actually). They just hate women, but they especially hate black women. It's just hilarious how they think their broke, unemployed selves deserve a rich supermodel that bows down at their every command.
I agree that this is why it is important for young black girls and women to strive for a middle-upper class lifestyle. If you are anywhere from 16-30 then focus your efforts on finding a quality mate and leaving bullshit behind. Improve yourself, lose weight, go back to school or finish school. Don't sell yourself short. Wake up and move on, the sooner the better.

2 weeks, 6 days ago on My Take on the Jamilah Lemieux Liberal vs. Conservative Kerfuffle
I think these men are truly delusional and feel that women are stepping over each other to get to them. Look at most of the men doing this, many of them are unattractive, overweight, poorly groomed and past their prime. Many are not very successful career wise and many also have to deal with a disgruntled ex. None of them are a catch in the least, and no woman in her right mind would sign of for that sort of baggage. The ones that are not overweight or unattractive are truly arrogant and feel that women should bend over backwards because they have achieved the bare minimum expected by society. While they are not ugly, many are far from looking like Drake or Denzel. They drag black women through the mud but refuse to acknowledge their own flaws or even look in a mirror.
Another delusion is that men look better with age, I will admit I find 30-something men more attractive than men my own age(23), but many of the men spewing this BS fail to realize that they are overweight, balding and dealing with baby mama drama bought on by their own piss poor decisions. It's not like they are Shemar Moore or Tyson Beckford. These men want a woman with a perfect body, great hair, supermodel good looks, a great career, a fabulous personality, and she must be a good cook. The sorry part is none of them possess any of these qualities, yet demand their partners have them.
What's hilarious is if you don't "give them a chance" then you are either a stuck up gold digging bitch, a slut who just wants a "bad boy", a snob with unrealistic standards, and/or you are making a mistake and wasting your best years by turning them down. Boy please, I am not looking for a meal ticket and I am still a virgin, I just don't want your ass deal with it.

I had not gone into a panicked state since 10th grade, I just felt so worn out by it all.

The "men" doing this are weak and refuse to compete in society, there is no other excuse. No woman in her right mind wants to take care of a grown man, deal with his bitching and tantrums, and coddle him. All women want security and respect these "men" fail to realize the problem is them.
They can't contribute anything positive to society so they tear others down. The KKK doesn't even have to work, these people do it for them.

I fully believe in another countries right to impose their own laws, but this is filthy. Some things are just unacceptable and a violation of humanity, no matter how you spin it. It's pathetic there isn't more outrage over this.
Right, it's what I have seen play out online and in real life. Instead of formally putting the child up for adoption they keep them around even thought they resent them. Part of the reason is to prove a man wanted to sleep with them at some point in the past. Uploading these videos is just sadistic attention whoring, nothing more.
Seriously, being a single, childless woman means something is wrong with you. I am 23 and not having a child functions as a sort of DBR repellant at times. It means I am too picky and a "bitch" in their eyes. Others believe I need to fix my situation, find a man and just have a baby-and that they are the guy that will do it. The same goes for single moms who are furthering their education and not interested in DBR men, not looking for "companionship" means a man doesn't want you anyway. It's a sad day when protecting your child or the interest of any future children means you are "uppity". "A degree wont keep you warm" and "a career won't keep you warm" are common mantras, but that degree and career will help pay your heating bills, which in turn helps you and any children you may have stay warm. Usually a DBR man can't do that. Again, this is the ignorance many black women deal with at some point throughout their lives, sometimes daily or monthly.
3 weeks, 6 days ago on Video: Okay I’ve Had Enough! Black Parents, You’re Not Superior for Beating the Snot Out of Your Kids!
The black community refuses to acknowledge that part of the problem is we view children as something that just "happens". Family planning is damn near non-existent and those who do wait until they are well-equipped and mature enough for kids are put on blast for being "too old"(as if life ends after 25). To a lot of people not having a child is viewed as a man not wanting you. Even though 80% OOW proves otherwise.
Even single mothers who strive for more are frowned upon, because the black community sees nothing wrong with raising a child in a dire situation and teaching said child to remain there.
Many mothers are jealous and resentful of their daughters, they view them as competition and not children that should be nurtured.

4 weeks ago on A True WTF Moment…When a Gym Manager Tells a Black Woman She’s Too Fit.
A lot of people do not understand that weight loss is 80% diet and 20% exercise. No amount of exercise can burn off an epic pizza binge. It's fine to have a cheat meal or cheat day a few times a month, but you cannot binge and expect to lose weight no matter how much you exercise. You have to eat clean or eat less(preferably both). You don't have to eat nasty food or count calories excessively or do anything extreme, but you do have to learn some kind of portion control. I was a binge eater, people around me enabled and encouraged it, and it has taken me nearly two years to rebuild my relationship with food and exercise. Trust me, it's hard to stop emotional over-eating.
Planet fitness has a target demographic, and that happens to be the occasional exerciser. The pizza night and tootsie rolls seem counterproductive but that caters to the target audience. From my understanding it's where you go to do cardio or a light workout and leave. There have been horror stories of people getting kicked out for heavy breathing and all kinds of things that make you go "WTF". They have been under fire over this for years. According to the article the dress code is at the discretion of the staff. So jealousy could have been a factor and most likely the reason she was singled out.
I don't think race is an issue here, other women may have very well been "intimidated", but I do not think her race caused this.
On a side note, they promo is making fun of the women in your screencap, many of their promos poke fun at high intensity routines.
If you go to a multi racial area, expect to see black men with every race imaginable. I am from Colorado, and Denver is a hot bed of swirl. Fortunately black women are getting the memo.
