May 23rd 2011 10:11AM The author is Japanese and some of them believe that Japanese women are the most beautiful women in the world. Asian women are exotic looking and beautiful, but you cannot just exclude an entire race from beauty just because of the handful of them that you've viewed. There are many races of Latino and Portuguese women who have African roots: Dominican, Brazilian, Panamanian, Puerto Rican, Cuban, etc. By mixing standards, these women are the same mix as some of the Black American women that he's speaking of. They were raised in different tropical settings, speaking a different language, which probably makes them more exotic and attractive to men of other races. Yet this group was also listed as being "more attractive" than Black women. How can this be, when they themselves are Black by all definitions of the term. I am a Black woman. I'm not African, nor Indian, nor am I White. Yet, I am a complete mixture of African, Nansemond Indian, and European with traced bloodlines dating back to the 1700's. A Black Cuban and a White Cuban are just Cuban before they are anything else. Since we were snatched away from our original heritage, stripped of our traditions and language, dropped off in an unknown region and forced to live by a new man's rules, we no longer know who "we" are. No matter how dark or light, Black women are some of the most beautiful women on the planet. From our African mothers have sprung some of the most exotic women in the world. BEAUTIFUL.
May 3rd 2011 9:55AM Some people just have a way with and understand certain animals. She probably never developed a healthy fear of these animals because she's been around them so long. It's a really amazing shot. She's still young and can turn and move quickly like they do. God help her when her age causes her to slow down a little, causes her eyesight to falter(and not see that extra cat sneaking up behind her), or should she trip and fall. It will be the end of her.
May 2nd 2011 9:29AM Yep, this artist is DEFINITELY getting a paycheck. Google "Mike Tyson" and look at the photos of his tatt. The 2 swirls around the eye socket on his left eye have 3 prongs on the top and 3 prongs on the bottom. It looks EXACTLY like the one on Mike Tyson's face.
Apr 28th 2011 10:57AM The pose that Bey is taking looks more reminiscent of something seen in the Movie "Evita" about Eva Peron, former political leader of Argentina. Bey in NOT in her 20's, she's in her 30's. Most singers' ages are dropped down to appeal to the youth that they are selling to. Just like Mariah "i've been 41 for 5 years now" Carey, Bey will remain "29" for so many years, 30 for so many years and so on. But you cannot hide age from your face.
Apr 18th 2011 2:41PM She's a pretty girl. She doesn't need the extra make-up. Too much make-up makes you look trashy, not sexy. The picture with the updo is very pretty though. Her make-up looks nice and fresh.
Jan 13th 2011 9:39PM Nope! Not leaving my $65K/year job to become fully dependent on another human being. It has nothing to do with playing your part. Common sense says that things happen. Unforeseen events could be disastrous if there weren't multiple streams of income coming into the household(ie. layoff, death, disability, desertion, etc.) My mother stopped working when I was little to depend on my father. After he walked out, she struggled for years to pay all the bill and try to feed me without his help. She did an excellent job, thanks mom. No thanks to the dad who abandoned us, but thanks to him for enlightening me in my own life. I own my own properties, raised a great kid, and don't have to depend on a man to feed the family or pay my bills. The world is not the same as it was when our parents and grandparents ran things. Women wanted independence, well here it is ;o)
Jul 23rd 2010 12:00PM My best friend's sister goes through the same thing. Since their family is of Indian descent on the father's side(dad born in Calcutta) and mom is white Italian(blonde hair, blue eyes), the two sisters look very exotic. They have very brown tan skin, hazel eyes, and heavy jet black hair. Maya, my friend's sister, recently had a little boy who looks completely white. Her son has strawberry blonde hair, porcelain skin, and the brightest blue eyes you've ever seen. He's gorgeous, but she constantly jokes about being "the nanny". It's sad that some people really haven't studied enough to realize that genetics can go any way that they choose. Children aren't only made up of what their two parents are, but sometimes what their grandparents are also. Since Maya's mom has blonde hair, white skin, and blue eyes, she carries the same genes as her mother for these traits and thus passed this on to her own child.
This is the same as how the caramel-skinned but half-white/half-black actress Halle Berry passed her white mother's traits on to her very fair-skinned, blonde haired, blue-eyed child Nahla. All it takes is reading a book to educate yourself, especially before you open your half-wit mouth to say something completely stupid like "no way, she's too white". Our world is already a melting pot of mixes too complex for us to understand. None of the so called "Europeans" that exist today would look the way that they look without thousands of years of racial mixing with Arabian, Moorish, Norse, German, English, and centuries of other conquering nations.
May 22nd 2010 3:22AM Your story sounds scarily like mine. My story happened about 10 years ago with a gentleman who was 30 at the time in Philadelphia. He was about 5'9, curly dark hair, tan skin, muscular build, mediterranean features. Very romantic, spoke french/arabic/english, used to leave french love notes on my car while I was at work, would sometimes even wait at my job for me to get off from work, claimed to want a deeper relationship, offered me a committed relationship that was supposed to end in marriage, and met my entire family. Yeah, I got duped into the whole shebang. Until his family found out about me, then 4 years of friendship, including 1 year in a "relationship", went right out the window. Don't feel bad, apparently, we all want and need a little romance in our lives. Sometimes, we just find the wrong person to share it with. But I think in finding that wrong person, it just helps us to open our eyes so that we will see the right person when they come along.
May 19th 2010 6:52AM Young children go missing every single day due to predators viewing them in an adult way. We as adults don't need to give predators one extra venue to exploit our kids. Anyone saying that this is "cute" needs to grow the hell up. Once again, the kids themselves are not to blame, because they're kids and they don't know any better. We're supposed to ones to guide our kids to understand the ugly world that they live in. We are not supposed to make them think that these racy costumes are ok to prance around in. I guess noone remembers WHY the AMBER alert is called that, huh? Noone remembers JonBenet Ramsey, right? Little JonBenet, who was dolled up so cute in little woman outfits, full makeup, wigs, and pranced around for the world to see, only to end up raped and dead in a basement at age 6. How stupid can these parents really be?
May 15th 2010 10:03AM I really hope she knows exactly what she's in for. It all sounds wonderful until that kid gets here. I was 19, had an excellent support system from my mom, and her father was very active in her life. I struggled to take care of her from the moment she entered this world. We did the total calculations about how much she has cost me to date: approximately $300,000+(this includes food, babysitters, diapers, baby wipes, formula, bottles, maxi pads, car seats, utilities, clothing, hygiene products, trips, weekly allowance, cell phone, tutors, bus fare(to & from school), doctor visits, vacations, proms, graduations, hospital bills, christmas gifts, birthday gifts/parties, days taken from work for sick kid, etc.) All the things we DON'T think about in a 17 year life-span. This amount doesn't include college at all. Think of what you could do with $300K if you had saved that up and spent it on yourself and your education. This price also doesn't include the years of childhood, fun, and exploration of your world that were missed while you were stuck at home with a child. There's no partying all night and not coming home at a decent hour. There's no outings period unless you have a babysitter. Babysitters cost money. Money that only comes from having a job.
Needless to say, I learned my lesson the first time and have never been pregnant again in 17 years. Although I didn't finish college, I still have a good job making $65k/yr, own 2 homes, car, and still have spending money left over. I am unmarried by choice, but when my daughter goes off to college, this may change. It took tons of time and hard work to finally see some semblance of the life that I wanted. One of the main things young women never consider as a teenager: What if the father of your baby is NOT the man of your dreams? Finding a new potential mate that is also loving and caring towards your child is important and difficult. With so many bad things that could happen in that situation, one must be very careful when choosing this new mate. This means screening every man that you go out with as a "rent a dad". A man cannot take a woman on without also taking on her child.
All I will say is good luck and please invest in a good birth control as soon after having this baby as possible. Don't believe any myths about getting pregnant after having a baby. You can get pregnant again as soon as you have had the child with or without seeing a monthly period. I had a Norplant inserted within 6 months of having my daughter(I would not let her father touch me until I had it). This saved me 5 years until I was mature enough to understand my body and how to fully protect myself using other methods of birth control. Today, there are 2 & 5 year IUC's available(Intra-Uterine Contraceptive). If you are on public assistance, you can get this for free, just like I got my Norplant for free. Yeah, I was on public assistance for 6 months until I finished trade school. Public assistance sucks.
