Sighs. So as you may have clicked the link above and read, many women are resorting to stripping. Now regardless of my feelings towards this industry; I have never looked down on these women. I remember being in the fifth grade and seeing “Players Club” and being fascinated with the things they put up with. I am sure there are more horrible things that happens. And the movie showed only a few but even at that age, I knew that judging them would be hurting them.
The article was decent. I felt it shed light on the industry and tried to show the positive side of it. But it was one-sided. It didn’t show the harsh realities or the fact that some of these women, struggle to get out of an addicting industry. I am the type of person, I want to see the good, the bad and the ugly. I want to know it all. So when reading the article, I understood the point they were trying to make but I felt they should have let people know this is an industry you try your best to avoid. I felt they should have spoken to a few women who ONLY strip; not all of them are in school trying to better themselves. Or even trying to do other things and venture out from stripping; you have some that JUST like to strip.
But this post is about the comments. I went on a few gossip sites and saw that so many people attacked the women who chose this industry. I felt so bad; I couldn’t understand why people felt they had the right, to look down on someone who chose a profession that SOCIETY feels is immoral. The way I always saw it was, if you sleep around or even have sex outside of being married, then honestly you aren’t any different from the young woman who does porn, strips or prostitute. In the end He only gonna look at the sin which is sex and showing your goods to everyone. He’s not concerned with what society feels is more morally wrong. His books tells us that only one man/woman is to enjoy your fruits so if you are giving yours up for free, what makes you think you are different from the woman who gets paid for hers? She is smarter at least she can go pay a bill you probably barely getting a HAPPY MEAL.
To say I was offended by the comments is an understatement. You had people calling them whores and saying they don’t respect themselves because they choose this profession. I never really felt they didn’t respect themselves. I feel as if some may have little respect or low self-esteem but so does the female who work in the corporate office. Not all of them are lacking in that area! I couldn’t get how people say all of them have some type of insecurity or feel a need of belonging. So does the woman who work as a teacher at your local high school. What I am saying is, these women aren’t any different from the girl next door; she was and is the girl next door. They have feelings and know one wants to go on a blog and read so many harsh comments looking down on them when you (the person who is commenting.) are probably the neighborhood whore for free.
So before you place judgement on these women who choose this lifestyle ask yourself a few questions; Why did she choose this profession? What is her situation? Who is she taking care of? Wonder what she feels about what she’s doing? Because a few of them are embarrased by their work but may feel there is no way out. And you disrespecting them is making it no better. BECAUSE REGARDLESS OF WHAT YOU THINK; EVERY WOMAN DESERVES RESPECT! No matter what job she does. Go out and support the ones who are trying to leave. Give them love and show them that regardless you got their back. Shoot do that for the women outside the industry. So to sum this up chill with the ignorant comments and never say never. Because you never know when a situation may come up and you feel the need to dance for a few dollars.
P.S. I saw someone call a stripper on twitter a stripper hoe and that’s how I got the title. How rude of that person huh? And if you all don’t stop damning them to hell I know something. I get so tired of people saying they are gonna burn. The Christian in me wants the holy rollers who probably sleeping the pastor to SAT IT DOWN! You don’t know their hearts or their relationship with God. I am happy I learned that Christians are to love their fellow-man as Christ loves us. UNCONDITIONALLY! Black women as I said before we are bad about criticizing regardless of the situation. Show love to each other and maybe you can save the next girl who is considering this as her profession.
*MUAH* For real this time!
