They’re Baaaaackkkk…. It’s been a long time! But the Dudes are Back and as opinionated as ever.
If you’re unfamiliar, check them out in all their archived gloray gloray (Putyahhandstaghetha! -Kirk Franklin). Let’s get right into it shall we?
By now, you may have seen the
Mr. Hightower Steve Harvey show segment featuring a lovely (no pun) woman, who’s husband cannot get into her African Pride. It sparked a bit of conversation on our Facebook Page, but mostly from the ladies. Out of morbid curiosity we wondered what a chosen few of opinionated and intelligent Men Folk thought.
Thus our Question of the Week:
Has the naturalista movement changed your perspective on what makes a woman beautiful?
SuPreme always wanted to run his fangers through Florida’s natural.
SuPreme: I assume that applies to women going natural now? It hasn’t changed anything for me personally, because I ALWAYS liked natural women.That’s the family I grew up in – women with real hair, real eyes, minimal makeup if at all – so that’s what I’m attracted to. I actually have found it sad when some people can’t believe I wouldn’t date a woman with a head full of weave or who regularly wears a ton of makeup – says something more about them that my attitude is a surprise. Says even more when they found out I never had a problem finding women like that – like those women were magical unicorns only seen on the third blue moon of a generation.
What makes a woman beautiful is HER. Not her cover-ups, not man-made chemicals and enhancements – HER. Especially her mind. And I have always had this rule that I still live by – if you look like a completely different woman when you wake up in the morning than when you went to sleep? You are NOT the woman for me.
Phlip, He catches bullets in his teeth. #truestory
Phlip: No, it hasn’t CHANGED my view on it. What it has done is create more women who are willing to attempt to be comfortable in their own skin. Someone who is cool with being themselves will be be sexier 1500% of the time. Granted, there are some heinous miscues that come with natural being “in,” but you take the good with the bad.
His name is Stone, but he likes to be called Lando Calrisian whilst “making love” #hiswordsnotmine
Stoney Sez: Oh the natural movement has me HATING the weave movement.
Why not just be yourself?
Why are you being someone else?
Casher wants to know why “you can’t callllll no boday?”
The Casher: Not at all. Makes it easier to get your ass out of door quicker!
No more three hour metamorphosis, burnt hair smellin’, greasy make-up dawning, track glue pillow stickin’, game delaying bullshit.
Rock your natural beauty, Boo!
Grossy, has all the animal magnetism of a young James Earl Jones’s sweaty taco meat.
Gross Dude (Grosser and Deffer than Ever): I’ve always been partial to that natural/neo-soulish/bohemian style woman, but at the end of the day, it still has to look good “on you”. Those styles and looks don’t necessary work for everybody..and lets face it, if you are a hotmess made up, and you are a hotmess as a naturalista…your still a hotmess. Just being a naturalista doesn’t make you beautiful.
I’m just saying… the hot naturalista chicks…are hot chicks no matter what style they do. Those are the ones that end up in magazine pics.
Most are NOT those chicks.
In summation: Fro up! Be free to be your naturally beautiful you, boo! But if you’re homely…really it doesn’t matter to them, either way.
I know, Mother Oprah…I know…
