Just when you thought “The Curry” family could do no wrong. Ayesha Curry took to twitter late last night to vent her thoughts on women’s trendy fashions lately. To be clear, nothing she said seemed offensive but this is Twitter we’re talking about.

 

 

Chhh it didn’t take long before Full Time Feminist Twitter-activated! They were not happy about her using the phrase “good stuff”.

Not everybody on Twitter was upset about what she said. Some were proud a woman was strong enough to go against the grain.

Some of the tweets made me think, but there were some that had me screaming!

 

 

In conclusion, they are some women that want to cover up for their man and a future mate. They are also women who prefer to stay at home with their kids rather than work. In 2015, we all have choices but when you’re a public figure with a platform sometimes it’s difficult having an opinion. Women should be respected if they cover the goods or not and so should Ayesha Curry’s opinion.

 

What do you think about Ayesha Curry’s tweets? Did it touch your spirit or left you unbothered?

    They are so pressed. She wants to be covered for her husband, and they are pissed they can’t get a real date. Boo hoo.

    I absolutely agree with ms curry. I have 7 boys and 1 daughter and in the century we are in I find it’s an uphill battle trying to teach my young kings and queen the meaning of an age old question, Why buy a beautiful organic free range cow when u can get that WIC milk for free?

    #unbothered! I love a sophisticated and strong woman. And certain things should be left to the imagination and not always on display.

    Well written piece.

    I agree with Ms. Curry about today’s fashion. It’s not really about covering up for a man. It’s about wearing clothing that accentuates your femininity without taking away from your self respect. The feminist person on Twitter said we shouldn’t be focusing on women’s goods in 2015. Well, if your clothes only highlight your goods, then what do you expect people to focus on?

    I like to accentuate my curves while being covered up. But guess what men are still men; pigs!

    I absolutely agree with Mrs. Curry. She is a very beautiful and classy lady … she is in the camp of Mrs. Obama and Duchess Kate. Her husband is a world champion and she is definitely not like other baller wives I have seen. She represents her husband extremely well and I wish other young ladies would look up to her style of dress and how she carries herself instead of the Kardashians or these other reality show birds.

    I honestly do not think what she said is wrong but at the same time omg get over these damn double standards and just cause a woman wants to show more than you doesn’t mean she’s lesser than or less worthy of love. Its skin and body parts people.

    I am proud of the women today who choose to cover up certain lady parts..that let’s you know it was instilled and the “times” hasn’t changed her mind. Koodles girl

    I do not care. Her opinion does not affect me even slightly, and I think it wouldn’t affect me even if I wore the clothes she does not like. The only problem I have is, why did she post this? Do you want people to care that you wear cardigans and knit pants? Girl, me too. So?

  15. Courtney

    December 6, 2015 at 11:19 pm

    I do not care about her opinion, and that’s no shade. Her views on clothes do not affect me, and I think I still wouldn’t care even if I wore the clothes she doesn’t care for. My only problem is, why did you tweet about this? Do you want people to give you hand claps because you wear cardigans and knit pants? Girl, me too. So? Let people wear what they want to wear. Why do you care?

    People are entitled to have their own opinion, however me personally, I didn’t think she said anything wrong. It’s just unfortunately we live in a society where group thinking prevents people from thinking on their own and respecting other peoples views and opinions.

    Ayesha is saying something that a lot of women these days don’t want to hear. I completely agree with her. I’m so sick of seeing side boob and women on instagram in damn panties. It’s disturbing. It seems as if these women will do anything for likes and followers and the women who disagreed with her OPINION are probably the same ones posing in panties. I’m all for empowering women and allowing women to be themselves but you have to wonder what’s the motive behind a woman dressing a certain way. Is it because she really wants to, or is it because she wants to get attention from a man. Anyone offended by someones OPINION is insecure about themselves. Justin I love you. You are hilarious, keep up the good work.

    Say so Ayesha. I so agree with what she said. So tired of seeing boobs and butt everywhere. It is not necessary and it takes the emphasis off the most important part of a person, the internal.

    If she decided to post in support of the “trendy” fashions, she probably wouldn’t have gotten as much backlash. This woman simply stated how SHE felt. Just because a person promotes something doesn’t mean they are bashing what they “don’t support”. I do agree with her 100%though. It’s the world we live in…. darkness will NEVER accept and welcome light. When you go against the grain, the majority will never agree.

Basketball Wives, Colorism, & The Negative Depictions of Black Women. Time We Call it Out.

The State of Basketball Wives In a Nutshell

Basketball Wives is on its eighth season and their eighth episode and nothing has changed over the course of the show. As a viewer, who has watched the show since the Royce and Suzie days, the drama has escalated to something that is absolutely unacceptable. They have enabled bullying, they have stated racist comments, and helped colorism flourish. This is not a reach, there are several examples of this and I will elaborate on them later on in this post. Quite frankly, I am beyond dispirited by the deplorable behavior, Evelyn Lozada, Shaunie O’Neal, Feby Torres, and even Malaysia Pargo have shown over time and specifically this season. Yes, Jennifer Williams & Jackie Christie have done their share of foul things too.

Timeline

Let’s look at the timeline of the show. Where do I even begin?

Well, the first season of Basketball Wives (Miami) introduced us to Royce Reed who was a former dancer for an NBA team and an entrepreneur with her own dance company. Royce spoke her mind. She was not dressing like them, she was not participating in the same activities as them, and she didn’t kiss their ass. Furthermore, Evelyn and Jennifer would constantly throw jabs at Royce on the way she looked and the way she dressed. They ostracized her in many ways and she then became the outcast. This is bullying.

Tanya Woods

Next, let’s take a look at the LA branch. Do you guys remember Tanya Williams? Probably not, she didn’t stay too long.

The ladies found her irritating because she was “boring”. I guess having a great vocabulary makes you boring. They also were upset that she did not break up a fight (Malaysia vs Laura). Tanya was flabbergasted that there was a fight happening in front of her. Which makes sense because she is usually around women who have class. Moreover, during an interview she did with Loop 21 back in 2013, she eluded to the fact that there are not many black women behind the scenes encouraging resolution or more positive depictions. As a result, this lets me know that Shaunie O’Neal does not care about the depictions of black women. Yes, these ladies do not represent all black women, but why even have them acting like fools on TV.

Let’s now fast forward to the last season of Basketball Wives and this current season.

OG is a new member of the show, she is a proud Nigerian and she plays professional women’s football. OG reminds me of Royce because she is not quick to agree with the ladies and she formulates her own opinions. Let’s be clear though, OG has not been perfect but for the most part, she has shown viewers that she may be the only real and genuine one on the show.

In recent episodes, OG interfered with some family business between Cece and Kristen, which is never okay. However, what is really not okay with me, is the fact that the other ladies specifically Evelyn, Malaysia, and Shaunie have been having some selective outrage. A couple of seasons ago Evelyn was having conversations with Jackie’s daughter about Jackie, and Shaunie enabled the behavior by not checking Evelyn. So what is the difference?

This season, we have Feby and she recently moved to LA to become more independent and work on her music career. Feby already begins to start issues with OG for absolutely no reason but to fit in with the ladies dislike for OG. Now get this, Feby in one episode was talking so terribly about OG with the other ladies and talking about the way she looks and everything else you can imagine. Feby even wasted her time to write a rap song mentioning OG and then lied about it. When OG confronts Feby, OG gets labeled “aggressive”.

Colorism OR Mean Girls OR Both?

Now doesn’t this rhetoric sound like white people describing black people who speak their mind or have strong passions? Evelyn is able to throw tables, throw drinks, and call Cece “Lee Lee” and yet her behavior is never reprimanded. But you know why? It s because of the blatant colorism towards OG on this show, that I can’t stand. When Latinas or light skin women get angry it is sexy or it is justified compared to when black women or darker skin women get angry, it is deemed “aggressive”.

Some may argue that Kristen, Jennifer, and Malaysia are dark skin and don’t get the treatment. However, Malaysia has gotten plastic surgery to gain European features. Let’s be real. Jennifer and Kristen don’t have strong features and they fit Evelyn and Shaunie’s aesthetic. Not to mention, Kristen referred to OG as Kunta Kinte and the ladies laughed. The words they use to describe OG have never been used before towards any other castmate in Basketball Wives history. Lastly, just because you are dark skin girl does not exempt you from making colorist comments.

Royce, Tanya, and OG are beautiful dark skin women with natural features that did not fit their expectations. Let’s keep that in mind.

I think it’s mean girl bullying and colorism all intertwined. Let me know what you all think. Very curious if anyone feels this way.

Now, I understand that this is reality TV and you should expect some mess. However, it makes the show interesting and impactful if there is some type of resolution. Instead, the drama and the antics accumulate and grow into a disgusting narrative.

A couple of seasons ago, Shaunie said Maylasia had no substance.

Shaunie, sis this whole show has no substance.

Megan Thee Stallion and Nicki Minaj have finally released the song of the season, “Hot Girl Summer”. The rappers penned the track after linking up in late July and teasing the collaboration through Instagram Live.

“Don’t run from me, friend!” Hot Girl Summer is already making waves as the first female rap collaboration to snatch the number one spot on the iTunes charts. Produced by Juicy J, the bad chick anthem celebrating women living unapologetically features Nicki Minaj and Ty Dolla Sign. Initially expected to release August 2nd, Megan updated her fans that they’d have to wait for the track. But was the delay worth it? According to social media reactions, the decision is split.

While the track currently has overwhelmingly positive reception on YouTube, these Twitter streets are telling a different story. Users aren’t entirely disappointed by the collab, but say that they just expected a bit more from the addition of a powerhouse like Nicki Minaj. Still, others are enjoying the song as a fun, dance track and can’t wait to see how DJs mix it in the club. Although some people are scrutinizing the verses of the two rappers, other’s are calling for unity. Referencing the fallout from the Motorsport collab, one user stated, “Y’all will not nitpick every bar to see who was better and throw unnecessary shade.” I have to agree!

Have you listened to “Hot Girl Summer” yet? What do you think: flop or bop?

The Izzi family, remembered for Vanessa Bell Calloway’s performance as the gorgeous-but-subservient Imani Izzi, is getting a new member. Snipes will be assuming the role of General Izzi, a man who rules a nation that neighbors Zamunda. Few details are known about what roles KiKi Layne and Rick Ross are expected to fill, but the storyline has been leaked.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Coming 2 America is about Akeem’s return to the United States in a search for his long-lost son. The film is directed by John Landis, who Murphy has been famously at odds with. You can read the details of their feud below.
