A Cold Cup Of Coffee: Manhood vs Bitchassness

This is a special edition of A Moment With Morris. This is part of an ongoing series I affectionately titled "A Cold Cup of Coffee". Bringing you real life without the sweeteners, a cold and sometimes bitter, but always necessary sip of reality. This time we're looking at, “Manhood vs Bitchassness” and it’s for the championship…cue Michael Buffer.

This moment is brought to you because of my disdain, yes disdain for the prevalent and rampant displays of bitchassness that plague the very fiber of our male youth. We are in a war gentlemen, and bitchassness has got us surrounded. Day after day I see the faces of our future; and it hurts. What happened to men? What happened to pride, self respect, accountability and masculinity? Our back is against the wall here. I drive past the future fathers of this planet and am left in aww as I see a complete lack of ambition, tightly wrapped in a pair of skinny jeans.

Bitchassness has manhood in a chokehold, waiting for the tap out. Grown men with multiple children, by multiple women, unable to keep 1 job. Really? So let me get this straight, you can’t find work…or a condom?

Men that feel they are entitled to respect, yet don’t have the slightest idea of their own duties and responsibilities. Respect is your compensation for pride, loyalty, and accountability. Why should anyone respect you, when you obviously don’t respect yourself? Not bettering the life of yourself and your loved ones doesn’t get you respected…it gets you ridiculed.

Stop complaining! Whining is not for men! As men we are the silent warriors. We do what we need to do, because it needs to be done. There is this movement amongst young men that throwing tantrums is an acceptable form of expression and communication. Crying and pouting when the world doesn’t go your way…really?

We are MEN! It is more than a title or a classification! Being a man means something, and it should mean something to you. We are in the midst of the bitchassness renaissance, it has our youth by the brain and the balls. There are boys wearing lip gloss, tight jeans and long hair looking like extras in a Boy George video.

The women’s movement gave ladies the feeling of empowerment and drive. It left them with the knowledge of their own worth and ability, it also gave them the ambition to do and be more. In this, a false way of thinking was born. No ladies, you can’t do it yourself! No woman can teach a boy how to be a man. You can give him values and teach him responsibility, but he needs a visual role model, with testicles. It’s great that women found that fire to succeed, the problem is, it was at the cost of male ambition.

I said it before, men rise to the level of what is necessary. By women striving to be more, men were required to do less. This in no way gives men a pass, but it does need to be addressed. Men, we have dropped the ball…and then just walked away. These women need us to be partners in the proper raising of the children we helped create. I mean WE as in all of us. Every man that is about something needs to be involved in this fight, if you’re a parent or not. We have got to take manhood back!

Bitchassness has taken over like a cancer. The youth needs direction. Men this is our Alamo…our Sparta! Raise your swords and shields and prepare to fight. Bitchassness is relentless, we need to be vigilant and steadfast in the rules and responsibilities of being a REAL man. These boys need to learn about education, hard work, perseverance, and determination. They need to see that for every Carmelo…there’s a custodian. It’s not about being “Hollywood”, it’s about being “whole”.

Women have become the new male role model. It is why they are so much more emotional and share female views and tendencies…but they’re not women. They are young men and need the proper input and guidance. Gentlemen don’t take this lightly, this is war, one we can’t afford to lose.

I say to you Bitchassness…

Let’s get ready to rumble!!!
