What Does it Cost to be the Boss?

Written by ELLA

I kicked out my [ex] boyfriend and picked up a second job. I’m proud of my devotion to my work but can’t shake feeling like an absolute fool… But love is what love is. 

What kind of man would try to insult you & say “you can’t keep a man,” to avoid discussing the fact that he lied about having 5 children (one of which isn’t his, one of which he found out isn’t his)? A man who is worthless as his word. The kind of man I would rather kill than keep. I can control my actions, but I can’t deny saying that his daughters would grow up to be whores like their mother… But when you find text message conversations of a man being excited that his “wife is getting slutted out” you have second thoughts about relationships and the things a person is allowed to expect from you.

Are you a “Boss” or just “Bossy”?

           I love this campaign Bey is a part of, especially because she’s teamed up with such a powerful cast: Condoleeza Rice, Jennifer Garner, Jane LynchDiane Von Furstenberg and Sheryl Sandberg. Reason being, most folks opinion is that women can’t get along – much less powerful women.  Bey’s been attacked by everyone lately after the release of her latest project (self-titled, Beyoncé) because of it’s blatant yet subliminal sexuality, which she released to take a stand for women’s social equality. Sex is just one of the places where women are subject to a double standard. A woman who has too much sex is a whore, but a man who has too much sex is a… man. On the corporate front, women are often perceived as weak and emotional. If we happen to be too strong, hold our heads too high and speak too loudly, we’re then characterized as “bossy”. If you’re a Black woman, they’ll probably assume you’re angry. Can women be a regular, effective and great bosses, like men are excepted to be?
