Marcus Black of “Love and Hip Hop” fame recently recorded a video that went viral. In it, Black claims that no man wants a woman who is 100% independent. See the full extent of his comments below.
My husband sent this to me over the weekend, trying to solicit a reaction. He found it particularly funny that Marcus chuckled to himself as he spoke about women gratifying themselves sexually.
I didn’t see the humor. Not only was the video unfunny, the thought was unoriginal. This idea that men need to provide financially, is a notion as old as time. There are still societies who operate under this construct. And in these places, women find themselves destitute and helpless when a man leaves them, whether voluntarily or involuntarily.
Very rarely, do we hear talk about the other ways men can provide in a romantic relationship. Instead of providing emotional support, providing excellent communication, or even a listening ear, Marcus somehow believes relationship problems will be solved by allowing a man to pick up the bill.
This sounds like a dictatorship more than a true partnership where each party assist and uplift each other as necessary. Those are the things we need as human beings. The things money can provide, we can attain ourselves.
See what other women had to say about the idea on the following pages.
