The Gender Class
So this girl and I tend not to agree on many things with. I personally think that society has grown beyond he's a pimp she's a hoe. When a rapper talks about hoes and bitches, just think about what he's actually talking about. HOES AND BITCHES! Celebrities are sort after by groupie women and gold diggers in general. These women sleep with them and bow to their every whim to be put in a video. You can't seriously tell me that intelligent, self-respecting women would allow themselves to be portrayed like that. Now on a more personal level. Girls aren't in general called hoes, jumps, pops, smuts, sluts etc etc without reason. My friends from school and I just had this conversation. My boy Denzel said he knew a girl that slept with 10 of his friends who are all friends with eachother (and that's just his neighborhood). She's a certified pop. The general consensus is that you can have fun and do what you want but keep standards at the least. Every guy you have sex with doesn't necessarily have to be a boyfriend for you to avoid the name calling. I say you're a hoe if you have sex with guys for what they can give you. I say you're easy if you have no standards (i.e. "he's cute" and that seals the deal) or if you don't realize you've had sex with more guys than there is in your high school class picture. To say the least, girls aren't called hoes for no reason. And to address the guy does the same thing he's a pimp thing. Well, its all a pride thing. Guys are just as self conscious and insecure as females are on the low. It's more like competition. If everyone a guy hangs with is nice at basketball and he's terrible they will remind him of it every chance they get. In an equal parallel, guys will remind you that you "ain't on their level" as a sort of "i'm better than you" thing. I can't deal with hoes so I think it says something about the trend. Hoes seek hoes. Think about it.
