Jada Pinkett-Smith often uses her Facebook page as a blog or journal of sorts. She types out her inner most thoughts in the hopes of inspiring and creating a dialogue. One of her lastest posts did just that. The title is enough to spark thought, “The war on men through the degradation of women.” Welp. It feels as if women who enjoy looking like A-list celeb in name brands and false tresses is to blame for men finding themselves footing the bill for these women.
According to Jada, the woman that is incomplete is what’s wrong with men. That woman is silenced because her thoughts cloud the thoughts of men only seeking pleasure and she rots from the inside out because of her want for material things.
Because of Jada’s aspirational and successful relationship with Will Smith, there’s certain advice that I will listen to wholeheartedly and that’s her marriage advice. Check out what Jada had to say about marriage (visit her Facebook for the rest):
Give your marriage the title of union…maybe. Simply release your marriage, your husband and yourself from the criteria. Maybe this will create an opportunity to find something new, fresh and expansive.
But before marriage, there’s mere meeting and courtship and Jada thinks that men and women are both being led astray by the superficial wants of women. One of the points that stood out the most was, “They [women] had no idea that eventually, even men would render themselves empty and longing for meaning, depth and connection. There is a deep sadness when I witness a man that can’t recognize the emptiness he feels when he objectifies himself as a bank and truly believes he can buy love with things and status.”

I’m very interested in the bond that is sugar daddy and gold digger. Jada’s post seems to be an expose of the inner feelings of men searching for love that goes beyond arm candy. With women running around in 6-inch heels, body-hugging dresses and down-to-their-back weaves, we’re promoting an image that doesn’t lead to real love. Check out the full post below:
The war on men through the degradation of woman.
How is man to recognize his full self, his full power through the eye’s of an incomplete woman? The woman who has been stripped of Goddess recognition and diminished to a big ass and full breast for physical comfort only. The woman who has been silenced so she may forget her spiritual essence because her words stir too much thought outside of the pleasure space. The woman who has been diminished to covering all that rots inside of her with weaves and red bottom shoes.
I am sure the men, who restructured our societies from cultures that honored woman, had no idea of the outcome. They had no idea that eventually, even men would render themselves empty and longing for meaning, depth and connection. There is a deep sadness when I witness a man that can’t recognize the emptiness he feels when he objectifies himself as a bank and truly believes he can buy love with things and status. It is painful to witness the betrayal when a woman takes him up on that offer. He doesn’t recognize that the create of a half woman has contributed to his repressed anger and frustration of feeling he is not enough. He then may love no woman or keep many half women as his prize. He doesn’t recognize that it’s his submersion in the imbalanced warrior culture, where violence is the means of getting respect and power, as the reason he can break the face of the woman who bore him four children.
When woman is lost, so is man. The truth is, woman is the window to a man’s heart and a man’s heart is the gateway to his soul.
Power and control will NEVER out weigh love.
May we all find our way.
