    hopefully this won't add fuel 2 the fire but here r some things that i hear the brothers wish our sisters would learn/know. now, i say this n fun so don't get bent out of shape but there is definitely some thruth to it

    style & class: y blonde, burgundy, & other colors n the hair r not "fly"

    style & class II : y long fingernails, xcessive jewelry & makeup does not make u a diva.

    hair managment: going w/o a weave; & f ur hair style requires multiple pins & gel to shape it, it's probably not a good style.

    hair management II: ur hair does not have 2 b the reason not to exercise and sweat.

    style & class III: y dressing like a homegirl does not mean u r a woman who keeps it real, y tight revealing clothing only leads to wham bam's?

    fitness: the difference b/t big boned/thick/curvy, & obesity.

    disagreements: how to walk away w/o getting the last word n.

    o k, so, what class, seminar, or course would u make manditory (or strongly suggested) 4 the opposite sex? :)

    Is it getting WARM up on this post?

    To each his own, but you bring up some good points, Doc. However, we EACH have got to do some 'learning'.

    Folk 'style' themselves (when single--male or female) to hopefully attract the right kind of attention from the right kind of person.

    Unfortunately, you can't teach common sense.

    How one presents themselves is how others will see them.

    Like the old saying goes: "I can't hear what you say, I can only go by what your actions tell me."

    Most young women today think they're supposed to look like they just stepped out of the latest video with the too short, too tight, too revealing, too gelled (hair) look and let's not mention the foul verbage. My opinion: great "I'm a Hoochie" advertisement.

    Take a look at some of those videos and even the black magazines that are geared to the twenty-something crowd. Look at the advertisements ~ our young women are just emulating what they see advertised.

    I agree with Mike, how you present yourself is how others will see you.

    The sad thing about this is that these women don't see themselves as dressing the part of a hoochie or a skank ~ they actually think they look good because of the stereotypical media mess that's out there.

    Common sense ain't all that common.

    Hey Doc ... these sound like interesting classes. Which of you fine gentlemen will be our teacher(s)? Please save a seat for me in each of them. In return I am requesting that you all make time to attend at least one of the following:

    1. Why it's important to never talk back to your wife/girlfriend/signficant other.

    2. The art of saying "Yes Ma'am."

    3. The Joys of Cooking.

    4. Simulated Child Birth For Men (with pain).

    5. How to remove stains from carpet.

    6. Sensitivity Classes w/special emphasis on PMS.

    7. How not to expel gas when within a one-mile radius of human life or vegetation.

    8. Fool-proof way of keeping the toilet seat down (has a little to do with men being one with nature, you may want to bring an umbrella).

    9. The true art of obedience.

    Perhaps my sisters will have additional classes we can add to this list.

    We will need the entire 15 hour session for each class, so guys, please don't be late.

    :heart:

    ps ... Kemetstry, what have I deleted ??? A new class is coming to mind ... "Don't say anything unless you've first received permission."

    lol Doc ... those are good. :)

    Doc ... I wanted to bring to your attention our new Quizzes area. We need folk to submit small quizzes and make suggestions, etc., regarding categories and such. There's even a "Femininity" and "Masculinity" category, hopefully those men who still don't know, or understand, that women are different than men will take those quizzes ... once some get in there! Which brings me to my next point, I'd like to personally invite you to submit some quizzes, any topic, any category, any anything. If the category isn't there, just suggest it. I want to keep the categories as broad as possible, so we don't have 999 of them. There's a link in my signature to the quizzes and the thread about submitting quizzes.

    Looking forward to your schooling!

    :heart:
