For future reference, a lot of my rants will be about women. And it’s not to put them down. I do it just to enlighten and help women! Ladies, I tell you about yourselves cause I love y’all. I really do.
“Cue the Rant”
I’ve come to realize that a lot of women, young women in particular, aren’t really forward thinking when it comes to their bodies. With me being a man, one of the best things about us is that (for the most part) we get better with age (see Denzel Washington, George Clooney, Billy Dee Williams).
But it’s widely acknowledged that women hit their physical primes around the late teens and twenties. And sorry ladies, but it’s all downhill from there, especially when you introduce children into the equation. Now before you chew my head off and cuss me out through your computer, listen for a second. Now yes there are exceptions to the rule as this isn’t the case for all women. But, for the most part, women become subjugated to father time much more quickly than men do.
I’ve also seen so many young women with tons of tattoos, particularly in the midsection area. I constantly see tattoos of stars, stripes, butterflies, your name (smh) and God knows what else. You’re not thinking or giving fair consideration to what it would look like to have a butterfly above your belly button when your 45 years old. Or after 2 kids and years of marriage.
Nothing lasts forever ladies. What looks good on you now probably won’t look good on you later. And this isn’t just for ladies. I can’t wait to see the guys who cover the entire top halves of their bodies with tattoos in 15 years. You might say you won’t regret it but as time passes I promise you will look down and shake your head. I wish I could be there to watch you explain to your child why you got those stars on your stomach. Can you imagine being 50 with a scripture tattoo on your chest? Come on people.
I’m done. Let me chill its Friday, the best day of the week. Don’t forget to cue the Sir Charles.
