“Be a Hoe, But Make It So We Can’t See It” Are We Really Sex Positive or is it Just Cute for Twitter?

Blac Chyna and Donna Lombardi both made headlines this week for leaked sex tapes. Cardi B’s best friend, Star Brim, was responsible for bringing Chyna’s tape to the public after posting it on her Instagram. As for Donna, her tape was trending on Twitter by the time I woke up that morning. Donna’s tape included her and fellow castmate, Alex, having sex in a public restroom while others recorded it. Upon watching the video I was disgusted and felt embarrassed for Donna. I don’t know what disgusted me more; the fact that she had sex in a public restroom (rumored to be Popeyes and we ALL know Popeyes’ bathrooms are some of the worst) or that she slept with most of her male coworkers at Black Ink. Then I had to think, how can I be sex-positive yet judge another woman for exploring her sexuality? Is there a limit to a having a hoe phase? What is deemed acceptable by society’s standards?

Sex positivity is becoming mainstream with the help of celebrities like Amber Rose and women all over are reclaiming their sexuality. Women should be allowed to have sex with whoever they want to as long as it’s consensual. The struggle comes in when we have to unlearn those beliefs that had been indoctrinated in us throughout our lifetime. You can’t be screaming “Yasssssss” when Cardi B says “a hoe never gets cold” but judge someone else for engaging in hoe activities.

By owning your sexuality you are reclaiming your power. You are not only pro-sex, but you are against homophobia and sexual abuse. Being sex-positive means that you are all for women’s productive rights and feminism. So why are we bashing women for owning their power and doing what these men do? I didn’t see any comments trashing the men in either video. We could argue because they’re not as “famous” as the women showed but we all know that’s not the truth.

While I still don’t condone having sex in a Popeye’s bathroom, I believe women should have sex wherever and with whoever they please. We need to stop acting like we’re sex-positive for everyone when in reality it’s only for you and your friends in the group chat. We can judge the performance of the tapes but not the people in them. Let’s stop being fake woke on Twitter and actual practice what we preach.

 

Take a look at some of the responses to Blac Chyna’s “performance”.

Lawrence must’ve had a seasonal positional at Best Buy because he is back but will he be in a full-time employee in Issa’s life?

Insecure delivered one of the most sickening episodes with “High-Like” episode 4, and not because they brought back breaking couch potato, Lawrence. It was the conversation about friendships and how things change. Dealing with real situations and how friends can all have something going on but also come to support one another. But for some of us seeing Lawrence made us wet and how us wondering why since we didn’t want to see him anymore.

The last 2 minutes as Issa walks in 7-Eleven after trying to assure Tiffany that things will be the same after she has her baby. Tiffany seems to be reluctant that it will be. Issa walks into the store to get some water and runs into Chad the Bluetooth wearing real estate agent. As she looked over to her left (in my Tweet voice) their goes Lawrence looking so good without a mustache OH MY! Issa’s looks as if she is excited and Chad’s mood is all of us!

Take a look at some of the reactions from Twitter as some said: “To hell with Lawrence!”

Black People Stay Winning! Tiffany Haddish & Katt Williams Win Emmys!

Published

on

Tiffany Haddish made history last year for the being the first black female comedienne to host “Saturday Night Live.” Her performance garnered her a Creative Emmy for “best guest actress in a comedy.” During her SNL episode, Haddish addressed the hot button issue of sexual assault in Hollywood. It’s great that Haddish was able to bridge the gap between comedy and current events and get an Emmy for it! Haddish beat out Maya Rudolph, Jane Lynch, Tina Fey, and Wanda Sykes.

Another Emmy award winner we’re excited about is Katt Williams. The comedian won “best guest actor in a comedy” for his appearance on FX’s “Atlanta.” Katt Williams played Earn’s Uncle Willy and stole the show. This is great news because Williams career has gone through its ups and downs along with his personal life. With the Netflix special and this Emmy hopefully, this indicates that the “It’s Pimpin’ Pimpin'” comedian’s career is on an incline and we get to see him in more TV and film projects. Williams beat out Bryan Cranston, Donald Glover, Sterling K. Brown, Lin-Manuel Miranda, and Bill Hader for the award.

It’s great to see black talent that would be classified as “ghetto” or “ratchet” win Emmy awards. This goes to show that that respectability politics isn’t ruling anything over here. Black people are being their authentic selves and getting awards for it.

Are y’all here for the Emmy’s now that we’re getting awards or are they still late like always? Let us know in the comments.
