In my humble opinion, this is the best thing I’ve read in awhile…perfectly explains why I don’t buy into the whole “Think like a Man” hype. Of course I’m deemed a “hater” for my less than stellar opinion of Mr. Harvey but meh…whatever. To each his or her own. Here’s an excerpt, hit the link for the post in it’s entirety:
Before I even start, let me say that this “Think Like a Man” book is a Bible to reformed hoes.
A woman can certainly relate to a man without thinking like one. We should be complimentary pieces, not congruent ones. If a woman is smart, she wouldn’t have to put on her male hat to figure shit out. Only a dumb bitch needs to process shit like a dude so that she as a woman can get the message. What genius hoe thought of reading a Steve Harvey novel to figure out the male species? That “think like a man” shit is just code for “If it’s good for men to do it then it’s good for chicks to do it” and that’s a silly way of looking at the world. If you need Steve Harvey (who is a fucking adulterer, might I add) or a movie to teach you anything, you’re far lost.
Steve Harvey doesn’t know your pussy struggles. This the same nigga who dyes his hair jet black, colors in his hair line and hosts Family Feud. That ain’t balling bruh. Anyone rocking Cab Calloway’s old suits and 4 failed marriages can’t provide me with guidance or hook me up with a soul. The game ain’t never that crucial.
I refuse to watch the movie adaptation of that weak ass book. I want to support black actors, but I don’t want Steve Harvey buying bright suits and odd hairpieces with my hard earned American dollars.
What happened to mothers teaching daughters? Since when is Steve Harvey adequate instruction?
A man cannot tell a woman how to be a better woman. They can tell women what they want, what they like, why they are who we are – but that doesn’t make you a more capable woman. If women embraced more of their sacred feminine nature, and men did the same, relationships would be better off for it, because we’d all be comfortable in our own skin. Right now you have women acting like men, and men acting like chicks, and the whole thing is confused and messed up…
