So, back in 2016, I wrote a post coming to Gabby Douglas‘ defense. At that particular time, she was unfairly criticized for a variety of ridiculous reasons. Black people made fun of her hair and White people questioned her patriotism. All in all, that’s a lot to deal with for someone who only recently reached drinking age, son. Now, while I stand by everything I previously said, I must admit that Douglas just played herself, man. All I can say is, victim-blaming doesn’t look good on anyone, fam.
Ok, for those who missed it, Douglas recently said some fuckity-fuck shit on Twitter. Needless to say, she got flambéed for it. Now, everything transpired after her Olympic teammate, Aly Raisman, made a statement about men not having the right to sexually abuse women. She stated that regardless of the nature of a woman’s clothes, men aren’t entitled to their bodies. Look, that should be common knowledge now, right? Well, not according to Douglas. Instead of backing up her squad leader, Douglas said that women should “dress modestly,” “be classy” and stay away from the “wrong crowd.” Yeah, she really went there, bruh.
Now, at this point, I shouldn’t have to explain to anyone what’s wrong with Douglas’ logic. Look, we’re living in a time when women are openly fighting for their respect. With that being said, no man has the right to violate a woman’s body or her personal space. If she isn’t with the shits, then the shit doesn’t go down, son. Frankly, it’s really that simple, man. On the real, I truly don’t understand women who put the onus on other women instead of the abusers. Shit, just because I like a woman’s cleavage doesn’t mean I can just go ahead and grab a boob, fam.
In the end, Douglas can save her apology, bruh. Real talk, people only repent after they get roasted for saying some dumb shit. Ultimately, I believe that Douglas believes everything she originally said. She’s only backsliding because everyone called her out for it. By and by, some women suffer from the same symptoms as some Black people: they don’t even realize how much they’ve been brainwashed. *Sigh* LC out.
