African man says_8 Things That Maketh Not The Lady

(FROM A TYPICAL MIND SET OF THE AFRICAN MAN)

 

As a man, there are some female fashions that annoy me. We all think of ourselves as unique, yet subconsciously we follow the herd. I propose that African women have been tricked into adopting certain fashions that make them look unattractive. Read on and see if you agree.

Tattoos: tattoos used to be the coloring of soldiers, sailors, and punk rockers. About fifteen years ago, they became fashionable. The lower-middle classes started taking them up. Unfortunately, unlike last years’ shoes, tattoos can’t be taken to the thrift shop and disposed of. To a certain class of person, tattoos are ‘cool’. To another, they are a graffito on the temple of the soul. They mark a woman definitively as lower class, alienated, depressed, and perhaps a bit daft. They’re also a handy way to identify one absolutely to the authorities. Which shows how stupid some crooks are.

Piercing: same story! My family are farmers. I associate nose rings with bulls, and piercings with cattle tags. They are a haven of dirt, infection, and their openings look unsightly. With tattoos and piercings, before you’ve opened your mouth, you’ve already typed yourself to people you meet.

Highlights and streaks: are you blonde, or brunette? Make up your mind! These might have been novel ten years ago. Now they just look common. Not all gentlemen prefer blondes. A healthy head of untinted black hair is a pleasant novelty these days. Most people on the planet are dark. Some of you ladies lie to yourselves. Including your hair dressers for there benefit by the way that a non-blonde with blonde hair or streaks looks “hot”. Rubbish!

 Big hoop earrings: 

Unmistakably part of the wardrobe of the gypsy. Which is fine if you are one. Strangely popular. Perhaps they’re to make the wearer’s head look smaller. Add them to the features above, and an unattractive type emerges. I don’t want to close my eyes and imagine.

Drunk ladies: drinking, squawking and falling all over the bar is disgusting if you are doing it stop. I’m sure it’s a sight no man wants to see .so spare us the embarrassment.

Visible G-string: this is erotic, no doubt about it. Unless you haven’t the figure to pull it off. Likely to provoke a reaction of ‘Mother of G*d!’ when adorning the pasty, blemished buttocks of the ‘full-figured’ young lady. Bad diet, no exercise, five-pints-a-night, then ‘peek-a-boo!’ Agggh!

I used to wonder why so many saucily-dressed young ladies walked the streets hatchet-faced. Now I now. Half are trying to ward off unwanted vulgar advances from men, the other half are annoyed they’re not getting any!

There’s nothing sexy about contrived, blatant eroticism. What’s erotic is what seems to be an accident. ‘A glimpse of stocking is something quite shocking’ etc.

Likely to irritate female co-workers also. Assuming your company allows such clothing. It doesn’t? I wonder why?

Swearing: your gentleman friends might find this amusing, to your face. What they think in private is another matter. Habitual swearing is another sign of a depressed, angry person. It’s unattractive. The more you do it, the more it corrodes your subconscious.

Disappearing Eyebrows: 

They get plucked away to nothingness, and then get drawn back on. And this is better? One can end up looking freakish, even clown-like.Loss of hair suggests illness. Plucking out one’s hair is often a sign of mental illness. Girls, desist! Don’t try to gild the lily!

IMPORTANT NOTE: There are people who’ll encourage you in the above. They’ll say you look lovely. Misery loves company, and some people delight in the fall of others. 

Be your own woman. Stand back from yourself, your life and your surroundings, and decide your own destiny.
