Netflix and Chill?

In my previous blog I mentioned that “Netflix and Chill” is a classic date for a man hoe. However, this phenomenon has become increasingly popular. So much so that countless memes are being made about it. First, let’s define what exactly is Netflix and Chill.

Netflix- this is an on-demand streaming service, most movies and TV series (once you got premium *cough cough*)

Chill– an urban slang to mean, hanging out or liming.

“Netflix and Chill”

You see why it bothers me that these two words when joined together can have a completely different meaning? I just don’t get it

Is it that this new generation is settling for going straight to the bedroom and not even bothering with the courting stage. I may be naive to that fact, but I believe in chivalry. Flowers are cute, whatever happened to a love note or a card? Is that not a thing anymore? Is taking a girl out on a date to dinner or a stroll in the park too much effort to give? Let’s not forget how things used to be when pictures were still black and white- we actually respected ourselves.

 

I can’t see how its a date to tell a smallie “link me in 51 Thursday”, how are you having meaningful discourse and sharing likes and dislikes when she’s “cocking right up” and you stabbing from behind. Or the fact that taking a girl straight to your house, with the low lights, horror movie (cause females be acting jumpy), and 5 mins into the movie hormones raging cause you’re not speaking to each other but your bodies doing the talking.

Ladies, this isn’t bashing the guys- but its both parties, what you allow a man to do is exactly what he’ll do to you. A guy knows which tree to bark up on. Cheap prices attract many customers. The baddest man hoe isn’t gonna come around a girl who has her head on, with a high level of self-respect and approach her with “Yo Tasha, wa u for? Netflix and chill awa?” No… Who are you attracting?

The Trini “Man Hoe”

According to the Urban Dictionary a “manwhore” can be described as “the male equivalent of a slut”. For the purpose of this being a Trini blog, I shall refer to the colloquial term “man hoe“. History has fueled the dominance of men, making it okay for men to be polygamous and sleep around while having a monogamous woman being submissive to him. Although, there has been many waves of feminism we still see this ideology being perpetuated today. The instant a girl flirts with a guys, has a fling or does anything that patriarchal society sees as unfit, she is deemed a “HOE” and is looked upon as the scum of the earth.

Recently, I’ve heard of many stories from females about guys they call a man hoe. Ladies don’t be naive, yes true love probably exist- not saying no. But in the society we live in today don’t expect to find it in the first guy who shows interest. Here are a few red flags that a guy might be a “man hoe”. Ladies I know you will relate, guys hard luck- but if it falls in your garden you know what to do.

  1. The Red Man syndrome. Fed up hear people bash “red woman” refer to my previous blog about “The Only Good Red Thing is a Dollar”. Instead of bashing the women, pay attention to some of the red skinned guys out here. Most red men who’s aware of the power their complexion takes advantage and pushes it to the limit. The arrogance is too much to take from some of you. You’re just red- not a god. Calm down. 
  2. The Douglas. Lemme just tell you- I have a weakness for mixed men, most females do to that fact. From observation and experience, some of these dougla guys just love sharing the genes of the two major ethnicity, they revel in it and walk around feeling like every female wants them. But some of you are just pennywise douglas anyway and playing games with innocent women. 
  3. The “so when we liming girl” type of guy. Every female you hit up is the same question, pretty sure some of you hit copy and paste in those DMs, because its always the same question. 
  4. “Netflix and Chill” guys. This is my pet peeve right here. Chivalry is dead! Dead I tell you. Some guys come at you, “I on’t like crowds, I don’t like to be in public, I’m a quiet type of guy maybe we can watch Netflix and Chill?” No girlfriend, he doesn’t like crowds on a first date cause he doesn’t wanna bounce up one of his other females. On a first date you should be asked to a movie and dinner AT LEAST, not straight to the living room or bedroom to “Netflix and Chill” cause we all know that connotes to “Netflix while I beat you out”  
  5. The party promoter. He promotes parties for a living… MAN HOE! Not gonna be harsh and say ALL guys who promote party bad. But guess what, he’ll flirt with every female and her 10 friends to get them to come to his party, they’ll think he wants them and you’ll look like the ass. Guess what his excuse will be that he’s “networking” and this party is for you bae, no girlfriend he’s sneaking away from you to wine on the smallie from whatsapp.
  6. I’m a good guy”. Red flag… Their introduction speech is about how good they are and faithful and not on games. He’s single because his last gf broke his heart and he hasn’t healed yet and that’s he afraid of being hurt and no girl has caught his interest – yet their IG pics getting 200+ likes and their whatsapp flooding? 
  7. “Everything on fleek” kinda guy. Ladies, he takes longer than you to get dressed, he shaves every other day, he uses out half bottle of cologne in one go, each curl is precisely identical and lays in a specific way, clothing matches, accessories are being worn everyday (bands, big ass bead necklaces I never understand, watches, piercings like whoa and ANKLETS!??), gym freak to BULK up not just for health… he’s not going the extra mile for one girl, otherwise he’d have settled down by now. Feel free to disagree- my opinion. 

This may not be totally true, but seeing from experience first hand and second hand has influenced these perceptions. Guys sorry for the bashing, but the next blog will be on the ladies 😉
