Erykah Badu Comments On Teachers Being Attracted To Female Students
Erykah Badu walked the fine line of slut-shaming and victim blaming Monday night with a couple of tweets about how highschool girls should dress. The Hotep queen said it’s natural for men to be attracted to women of “childbearing” age and that girls should be aware of what they wear.
There was an article ruling that high school girls lower their skirts so male teachers are not distracted. I agreed because I am aware that we live in a sex l-driven society. It is everyone’s, male and female’s, responsibility to protect young ladies. One way to protect youth is to remind them we are all sexual in nature and as they grow and develop it is natural to attract men. It is not them who is doing anything wrong by being beautiful and attractive but with such imbalance in our society it is smart to be aware and awake. Men and women both go thru cycles of arousal. Men automatically are attracted to women of childbearing age.
I want my daughters to understand this. I want them to be themselves and wear what they like, yet be aware. Not ignore our differences. Males should be taught to be responsible for their actions from childhood. It’s not ok to “prey” on young women. But do I think it is unnatural for a heterosexual male 2b attracted to a young woman in a revealing skirt? No. I think it is his nature.
Consequently, we must all be aware and responsible. We must protect our young women. We must teach our young men. If I had a school I would make sure that the uniform skirt length was a nice knee length. It is fair to everyone. Young women you are beautiful. Young men you are beautiful. Protect one another.
Do you agree with Erykah’s comments?
