10 Things You Shouldn’t Say to a Woman

I would consider myself a pretty good communicator. In fact, I’ve learned enough about talking to people to drop some knowledge on you all. Here are 10 things you definitely shouldn’t bring up in conversation with any woman. You’ve been warned!

  1. “You shouldn’t eat that.” (or anything about weight)fat amy gif

It’s my body and I’ll ruin it with a 10 pc. McNugget if I want. I’m sure someone else will find this tummy yummy if you don’t.

2. “Calm down.” (or the synonymous “relax” and “it’s not that deep”)

You clearly want the argument to last another hour.

3. “My ex…”

ABORT MISSION. Just don’t. Ever. It’s offensive to be compared to someone from your past.

4. The dreaded b and c words

Mad disrespectful. Use these and you’re asking to set off a grenade.

5. “Whatever.”

Trigger word. Simple to you, 100 meanings to her. One being that you don’t care.

6. “You wouldn’t understand.”

Don’t insult my intelligence. Try me.

7. “I heard this about you…”

But did you ask me?

8. “Someone’s PMSing.” (or anything about periods)

Yes because I have to be menstruating to be angry…What would you even know about bleeding for a week and wanting to eat a tub of ice cream for breakfast?

9. “You look tired.”

I probably am. Doesn’t mean you have to point out I look like trash.

10. “Don’t be such a girl.”

Don’t be such a douchebag. Were you raised in a cave?

These 10 phrases will land you in the dog house for sure. What happened when you said one of these? Let me know in the comments!

Dump Trump

Hi readers! I haven’t forgetten about you I promise. I’ve been very busy with school and extracurriculars but it’s all paying off. I’ve recently accepted a summer internship offer! While I have been preoccupied there is one thing I’ve been keeping an eye on and that is the upcoming election. In fact, this is the only election I can actually say I’ve really done my research on. I’m not really into politics so perhaps it is because it will be my first time voting. Nevertheless, I’ve formed an opinion and sadly it’s that I would rather ANYONE but Trump become president.

Sometimes it disgusts me how money rules the world. For instance, how Donald Trump is actually in the running to be the President of the United States solely because he had enough money to keep a campaign afloat. We all know that’s the only thing keeping him in. Should I mention that Trump has filed for business bankruptcy for his casinos in Atlantic City multiple times in the past two decades? If the guy can’t run a business, why on Earth would anyone vote for him to run the country? Just look at him!

  
His few crazy supporters who probably marry their cousins and have romantic relationships with their dogs are also keeping him in the running. I’m sorry but those are the only people in my opinion who can possibly agree with “deporting the Mexicans” and “close America off from Muslims.” The guy is a blatant racist and it makes me wonder what he would have to say about Black people. It terrifies me to imagine a man with so much hatred for his fellow Americans as our leader. With all the racial tension that has been displayed lately I can definitely see us going back into segregation with Trump as president. And if that happens I’m dead because yall know I have too much attitude to be spit on by Whites and be told where I can sit.

So with all of this being said I ask that you, your momma, your grandpop, whoever to dump Trump and vote for anyone else in this upcoming election. I don’t care if you write yourself on the ballot. Just make sure this racist, misogynist, joke of a man doesn’t become the leader of the free world. The only way we can stop him is by registering and voting. Which brings me to another issue: YOUR VOTE MATTERS. Do not believe otherwise. I’m a black woman. Blacks fought to vote and women fought to vote so I can’t let this opportunity slip away.

  
I wish Obama could have a third term honestly. The First Family is so lit. Would Trump shake hands with Kendrick Lamar in the White House? I think not. Let me know what you think in the comments. If you can give me one logical reason why Trump should be president maybe I won’t slap you (:

Texts of Exes Past

“Hey big head.”

“What’s up stranger?”

“So you can’t have friends?”

  
If you receive one of these texts chances are you’re about to be annoyed by someone from your past. Whether it’s an ex, a previous hook up, or someone who continues to try you, these texts and other corny clichés are their go to for wiggling back into your life.

Why is it that as soon as you’re on cloud nine, Jerome from summer 2013 has to DM you? Boy bye! Everybody gets that initial chance and if you’re lucky you might get a second one. But once you’ve wasted my time or I’m not interested, it’s a wrap. My cute new selfie on Instagram is not an invitation to text me that you miss me.

The fact is, when people see you looking or doing better they’re reminded of what they once had or could of had, forgetting it didn’t work out for a reason. I really don’t believe exes can be friends because somebody will always want more. That’s just my opinion. On the other hand we have those people that you’ve politely turned down and they still keep trying. Then they want to accuse you of being “a stranger.” I’m not a stranger. I just don’t want to talk to you! Even worse, these types will sometimes get nasty and claim “they didn’t want you anyway.” No need to get rude honey. Stop lying to me and yourself and take the L.

It’s ok to miss your ex (especially if it’s me because you messed up 💁🏾 lol). But if you see they’re doing well without you, don’t go messing with them. You can catch up with them by texting something like “just wanted to see how you’re doing” instead of that annoying “hey big head.” And if they still want nothing to do with you, you just have to accept that. Let them be great from a far and never cross the boundaries they have set. 

Also, if you’re being bothered by someone and can’t ignore it, it’s perfectly fine to block them! I hear too often “I feel bad.” How can you feel bad for deleting somebody from your life that you don’t want there? I will leave somebody I don’t want to talk to on read so fast like “new life who dis?” You can never completely move on so long as you have texts from exes past dangling over your head. In my opinion, say hello and keep it pushing. You’re a different person now and deserve unbothered happiness!

Do you have an annoying ex? Social media creep? Let me hear about it in the comments.
