How dare you use our Anniversary date as the title track of your album discussing your infidelity? How dare you sandwich this song in between sucker punching cultural critiques?
Hov, are you the latest #WOKEFUCKBOY ?
LA & I met a few gentlemen at #PlatanosAndCollardGreens last weekend that wanted to know why there appeared to be more women doing The Work than men.
One young man actually called it out and said, "I feel like some men think it's cool to be down for BLM, but out here saying mad wild stuff to women and don't see how they are using the oppressors tools against our greatest champions. It's giving rise to #WOKEFUCKBOYS"
He then asked what he can do to call more men in, while calling them out on their misogynoir. I let him know that simply having the "bruh moment" and letting your boys know that sexist jokes aren't cool, even in private spaces is a great place to start. Other places to start include:
- tell your boys to stop asking women to do stuff y'all can do on your own
- tell your boys to stop talking over & interrupting women
- tell your boys to stop minimizing women's stories
We need you. Everyone learns better from their peers. Women cannot be responsible for men's unlearning of patriarchal supremacy. We need male feminists on the frontline doing this work.
Thank you to the men who include these practices in their day to day interactions with other men.
None of us are free unless all of us are free.
