Here’s How Russel Wilson Keeps The Good Guy vs Bad Guy Conversation Going

“Will He Wait In 2015?” was a piece that I wrote back in July here on SBM. The piece used the new relationship between Russell Wilson and Ciara as proof that there are men that will abstain from sex with the right woman.

The Valentine’s Day Chronicles: No Beginner’s Luck

 We’ve all made it! We’re past  Valentine’s Day and I sure hope it was an enjoyable one for you. Whether it  was you staying home and watching a phenomenal dunk contest, or missing everything for the sake of dinner…I do hope it was well spent. All jokes aside though, my weekend left me in a […]

Why It Is Okay To Not Like How Cam Newton Handled The Media

That was just to lighten the mood y’all. If it isn’t critiques about Beyonce’s performance, then it’s Cam Newton’s post game press conference that is the talk of the week.

How Do Men Avoid The “What Are We?” Question?

The last time I wrote here I gave my thoughts on a video that was produced by Buzzfeed. The video chronicled a woman hurt by a man who simply wasn’t honest with her. He hurt her by his lies and she felt the need to let people know that we all should be aware of […]

Do Men Care About Dogging Women?

Today I Nancy Kerrigan on thin ice with the stance I’ll take. You can always depend on Buzzfeed to bring you nuanced entertainment and information. I happen to enjoy most of their content. I particularly love their clips where they create these crazy recipes. Anyone who knows me  knows how sacred I find a knife […]

What I’d Want The Mother Of My Child To Be Like
