As of late, actress, turned humanitarian, Jada Pinkett Smith has taken to her Facebook page as a means of delivering her personal thoughts, pictures, and words of inspiration to the masses.
Though her recent opinions toward criticism of her parenting style (in referencing her daughter Willow Smith’s hair) are still circling the net, the ‘Don’t Sell Bodies’ advocate has released a new writing which questions the true role of man through the image of woman.
Get into the thought provoking piece below:
The war on men through the degradation of woman.
How is man to recognize his full self, his full power through the eye’s of an incomplete woman? The woman who has been stripped of Goddess recognition and diminished to a big ass and full breast for physical comfort only. The woman who has been silenced so she may forget her spiritual essence because her words stir too much thought outside of the p
leasure space. The woman who has been diminished to covering all that rots inside of her with weaves and red bottom shoes.
I am sure the men, who restructured our societies from cultures that honored woman, had no idea of the outcome. They had no idea that eventually, even men would render themselves empty and longing for meaning, depth and connection. There is a deep sadness when I witness a man that can’t recognize the emptiness he feels when he objectifies himself as a bank and truly believes he can buy love with things and status. It is painful to witness the betrayal when a woman takes him up on that offer. He doesn’t recognize that the create of a half woman has contributed to his repressed anger and frustration of feeling he is not enough. He then may love no woman or keep many half women as his prize. He doesn’t recognize that it’s his submersion in the imbalanced warrior culture, where violence is the means of getting respect and power, as the reason he can break the face of the woman who bore him four children.
When woman is lost, so is man. The truth is, woman is the window to a man’s heart and a man’s heart is the gateway to his soul.
Power and control will NEVER out weigh love.
May we all find our way.
Jada’s commanding words definitely resonate with a large magnitude of the stereotypes of what men and women ‘assume’ their roles to be in today’s society. Powerful.
