by SavageTango I saw an interesting discussion going on in here not too long ago. Well, pretty much every discussion here is interesting but this one particularly so. It caught my eye real fast and I wanted to crash it and start in with my .02 about the problem these Ladies were talking about. ButRead More…
Our resident sex and romance expert is at it again!
Yesterday was awesome-sauce. Atlanta was a success all around, and “SWIRLING” to CNN by storm. It was cool that host, Natasha Curry, a product of the black/white union with a white rainbeau of her own, was so geeked up about the book. She’s so super cute and down to earth–we’re looking at pictures of my kiddos in that shot.
It’s easy to get on a roll and then find that you have gone too far in the wrong direction. It’s even possible to go too far in the right direction. For example, I’ve read plenty of posts on a multitude of blogs teaching/telling/preaching to black women to learn how to use their femininity and/or look more feminine. And the people who write these posts have a point: Plenty of women–white, black, and everything else–are interested in increasing their appeal to men and learning how to practice the feminine arts.
I decided to do the question of the week on location at the Georgian Terrace Hotel in Atlanta. Amber Nicole Smiley, an actress and resident, spoke with me frankly about some black women’s resistance to loose weight to score higher in the dating game.
Frequent Fox News contributor and far right political pundit Ann Coulter is promoting a new book, thus we can all expect to get served double doses of extra-hot foolishness–otherwise known as “Quotes from Ann”–over the next few weeks as Ms. Coulter makes her rounds of the media.

Love BB&W? Time to put your money where your mouth is!
The New York Times recently did a feature, “Old Stand-By’s, New Stand-ins,” about the standby beauty products that still deliver decades after they’re introduced. Check it out–it’s good stuff.
What are you guys hoping for in the next season? Dish!
First and foremost, please spare me the conspiracy theories, the abstract philosophies, or anything that tries to put shackles around my arms and legs in the year 2012. I am an American. And last time I checked, the period in the United States where it was perfectly legal to own black women as slaves is over.
Minestrone, A thick soup of Italian origin containing assorted vegetables, beans, pasta such as vermicelli or macaroni, and herbs in a meat or vegetable broth and consisting of pasta, rice, vegetables or beans cooked in water, from Old Italian soups made with vegetables, often with the addition of pasta or rice.
“These are pillars of salt who stay stuck right where they are, in that detrimental mindset. Most will die having never married. Oddly enough, a well-seasoned POS will show younger black women how to repeat this flawed thinking, thereby perpetuating a nasty and unfair cycle.”
It looks like girls are no longer solo in bearing the brunt of stigma for sleeping around. According to a study by the American Sociological Association, almost half of college students judge men and women with similar sexual histories by the same standard and hold equally negative attitudes towards both their male and female peers who they believe hook up “too much.”
Every time this sandwich-hating skinny bee open her mouth I cringe.
If you recognize yourself, there’s still time to make a change.

Well it is officially Fall. My favorite season, although I am a Spring baby. I look forward to leaves changes there color and the air getting cooler. The smell of cinnamon and pie baking.
Okay ladies, when times get tough, find a way to pinch those pennies until the squeal!
The air is rife with the stench of poli-tricks, and sometimes I prefer to read things on my own rather than allow a news broadcaster to inform me of HOW I should feel about a situation rather than providing me details of the situation. The Republicans are beating down political progress by voting against nearly every bill that makes its way into the Senate. The links to some bills are included, so feel free to read at your own leisure and come to your own conclusion.
