Today is the day the world stood still.
Wiz Khalifa proposed to Amber Rose and twitter went nuts. There were the usual factions. People who discussed the size and quality of the ring. #TeamVS vs #TeamVVS. You also had a subset of people who wanted to compare Wiz to Kanye. Ironically none of these bothered me as much as the all too familiar “Hoes be winning” tweets I saw coming across my timeline. Why does this bother me?
Every time a woman who has a questionable sexual background ends up married the peanut gallery scrutinizes said woman as if she’s not entitled to ever being loved by a man. I’m not saying I would knowingly wife a woman with a questionable background but I wouldn’t necessarily condemn someone else to a life of loneliness.
Why doesn’t she deserve love? What exactly is a hoe? And how exactly is she winning?
I know one thing. I plan on getting married one day. I’m pretty sure I’ll feel like the luckiest man alive and I’ll be lucky to have her. But guess what? She’ll be winning as well. And therein lies the issue with stating that “hoes be winning”. It implies that everyone who isn’t a hoe is losing. I know I don’t plan on marrying a hoe so there are major flaws with that assessment. This also causes me to question the motive behind women who make such allegations. You can’t be envious of hoes can you? Well stranger things have happened and I know no one that reads my blog or follows me on twitter could ever possibly be jealous of hoes. (/sarcasm)
For a woman to claim that hoes win lets me know insecurity in fact runs rampant. This isn’t a groundbreaking revelation but it shouldn’t go without saying. A lot of people try to live their lives so they won’t be judged harshly for how they behave. When someone steps outside of that box of conformity (say by stripping or making a sex tape) they should be branded with a scarlet letter. Don’t be so quick to condemn others because you’re unhappy with your situation.
The question you have to ask yourself is if hoes are really winning out in these streets, is that really what you want? If yes, then by all means go ahead and be a hoe. If not then why do you care? I guess at the end of the day that’s what I want to know. Why do you care?
