Tyrese has some fascinating thoughts about ‘sluts, skeezers, hoes & tramps’

World premiere of 'The Fate of the Furious' - Arrivals

I honestly don’t care about Tyrese, the model-turned-actor and now full-time sexist. I’ve seen the headlines about him over the years and I thought about covering some of his bullsh–t in the past, but I could never even work up the energy. For those of you who haven’t paid any attention to him, he’s sort of a douchebag and he’s absolutely a misogynist. He’s one of those guys who thinks very highly of himself and his way of doing things, to the point where he offers relationship “advice” to men and women on social media. Most of the advice is directed at women, of course, because it’s always women who need to change to accommodate men. You know who he reminds me of? Steve Harvey.

A few years ago, Tyrese posted a message on social media where he was basically saying that women are needy and they just need to STFU and let their “ambitious” men do their men’s work. Last year, Tyrese has talked about how he no longer wants to date women who are “loud and aggressive” and he only wants to date women with soft voices. There’s tons of other sh-t about him too, just Google “Tyrese Sexist.” Well, Tyrese is being interviewed these days because of his role in The Fate of the Furious. He was interviewed by BET. It did not go well.

Tyrese is returning to the big screen in Fate of the Furious, which hits theaters on Friday. The actor and singer came to the BET offices to discuss the film and, of course, he sounded off on the nuances of relationships.

For the women? The actor said, “I appreciate all the ladies out there that are still single, that are holding out. Don’t settle. Don’t settle. Because I’m gonna tell you all right now, and this might be harsh. Sluts, skeezers, hoes, tramps and overly aggressive promiscuous women, they are never without a man because they don’t have no standards. They ready to have sex with any and everything that want to have sex with them. But when you are single, and you actually love yourself, you know your value and your self worth you hold out until God sends you what’s yours.”

Ty continued, “So sometimes they be talking mess to women that are single but I have a respect for them because if you’re single and you might say, “I’ve been single for a couple years,” whatever the case may be, you actually holding out because you have your value. You have women that are active out in these streets, they going to lunches and dinners every night. Private planes, mega yachts, it’s cracking. They’re never without. However, it comes with a cost, you gonna put a lot of miles on yourself down there, come on.”

[From BET]

FOR THE LOVE OF GOD. It’s all so awful but this is possibly the worst: “They’re never without. However, it comes with a cost, you gonna put a lot of miles on yourself down there, come on.” SEX IS NOT A FINITE RESOURCE. How many times do we have to say that? Women are not pieces of gum that lose their flavor the more they are “used.” And you definitely don’t get to say sh-t about a woman’s “mileage” without offering any comment about men’s mileage too. Women are not any more or less pure or worthy or valuable depending on their sex life. This is some misogynistic slutshaming nonsense.

    F*ck him! Piece of sh*it!!!!!!

  2. KJA says:

    The amount of men and women consigning this crap of Twitter was really discouraging and frankly I’m just tired.

  3. detritus says:

    it’s crazy to me that some men hate women more than they like sex.
    Anyone else would realize insulting the sex havers for having sex means you get none.

    • tmot says:

      I KNOW! Right? What an assclown.

      I got to see the Red Hot Chili Peppers at that ’90s Woodstock festival (1994 i think) and Anthony K said something along the lines of, “hey guys, don’t hassle the topless women or else there won’t be any.” :-)

    • Shambles says:

      Exactly. And I would love to know how many women he has sex with on the regular. I’m sure he’s pretty agressively promiscuous if he has no problem thinking of women in these disgusting terms. I thought this stupid, hypocritical line of thinking died in high school.

      Women. Can. Have. Sex. With. Whomever. They. Want. However. Many. Times. They. Want. As long as you’re not hurting anyone or yourself, f*ck away, ladies. Xoxoxoxo

      • detritus says:

        Right?
        Be safe, communicate honestly, and have fun. If it isn’t fun, then stop.

        And for the young ladies who maybe were like me and my friends, listen to your needs too, sex doesn’t need to be performative, you don’t need to be the freakiest/nastiest whatever. do what calls to you, and any guy who tries to pressure you into things you do not want to do isn’t worth the time.

        Tyrese is definitely the dude who tries for the butt without checking first.

      • Shambles says:

        Great sex advice, Deets!

      • Trashaddict says:

        I cosign but I will also say, for the younger ones, well for everyone really, figure out if it’s the sexual connection or the emotional connection you’re after, or both. And if your partner can provide it.

    • Val says:

      The thing is that women will buy into this mentality and will sleep with him because they think they are the special snowflake that he values. In reality he values only himself.

    • I Choose Me says:

      THANK YOU detritus! I’ve been saying this for years.

      The vagina does not come with a fecking expiration date. Unless it’s owner is ya know, dead.

      Never could stand this trifling dumbass. Dizzy muthafucker came to my island a couple of years ago and videod himself on a basketball court all by his lonesome spouting a bunch of naval gazing drivel. He ain’t even worth the eye-roll I usually give him.

  4. Tiffany27 says:

    This dusty a** fool is forever saying something misogynistic about women. He should have just stayed in his lane making less than impressive music.

  5. AmunetMa'at says:

    He really needs to just stahp. All this foolishness started over a marriage announcement.

  6. frisbee says:

    A man disappointed with his tiny little willy methinks.😉

    • Tashkent says:

      So I guess body shaming is only ok when it’s directed at people you don’t like? Not at all surprised at the hypocrisy though.

      • Otaku Fairy says:

        It’s not about not liking him, it’s about his msisogynistic behavior and beliefs. When a person- especially a man, but this goes for anybody- judges a woman’s value based on what she does with her body, that person opens himself up for judgment of his body , value, and character. There’s no hypocrisy. As women we’re not obligated to show respect for a male who doesn’t respect us as a group. Would you ask a gay man to be polite to a person calling him a f%ggot?

    • frisbee says:

      Oh purleeeze I have no idea or care about the size of his willy my comment was designed to treat him with the contempt he deserves but with some humour. Grow up.

  7. V4Real says:

    I can’t belive the beautiful Sanna Latham dated him. I didn’t know all this about Tyrese because he’s one of those singers/actors I didn’t pay much attention to. I’m glad I didn’t waste my time .

  8. Mia4s says:

    He’s a waste of oxygen. I can’t wait until this Fast and Furious nonesense wraps up so he can disappear.

  9. Lucy says:

    Now I know why Nathalie Emmanuel looked so uneasy in yesterday’s pictures…what an absolute piece of trash. Rock, do come take your buddy, please.

  10. Leslie says:

    The same men who say this type of crap also shame women who have never had sex. So women just can’t win no matter what we do.

  11. Macheath says:

    I can’t stand this man. He recently got married and I wish he’d just STFU and be a happy newlywed.

  12. littlemissnaughty says:

    Miles??? I HOPE I put a lot of miles “down there”. Bitch if I want to work towards HON Circle Member status, that’s my decision and mine alone! I’m doing my Kegels, don’t you worry. I’ll be fine. You, on the other hand? Some woman will rip off your business one of these days and I’ll donate money to her defense.

  13. Chelly says:

    Didn’t he have a show with Rev Run talking about relationships?? God, he was awful…is awful bc he truly believes the sh*t he spits. He’s definitely the type of guy that would ask a woman how many men she’s slept with & have a very specific # in mind that would determine her worth….in his worthless mind. I’m starting to feel bad for his wife “women are to be seen not heard” or at least heard very softly

  14. eggyweggs says:

    I’m not sure why he broached this subject, but he could have started and finished his thoughts on the matter with, “Don’t settle.”

  15. Babs says:

    OK, I don’t know this guy at all and he seems to be a terrible person. But I kind of agree with his point here and I think it applies also to men. People will do what they want and I won’t judge them for it. Still, I think no one should settle and I also think losing oneself (? maybe not the correct word) )in meaningless sex is not good for anyone. Sex is important, have consequences, should not be casual.

    • Kitten says:

      Yeah…I have to admit that I don’t understand this at all.

      Sex doesn’t have to meaningful to be incredibly enjoyable. Does that mean sex when there is no emotion involved feels the same as sex when you are deeply in love with someone? Absolutely not, but that doesn’t necessarily make it less satisfying. If people are safe and the sex is consensual, I see absolutely nothing wrong with casual sex.

      *shrugs*

      • Shambles says:

        + everything kitten, ITA

      • Craven says:

        Sex doesnt HAVE to be meaningful and yet it is for most people. You often hear about the different measures sex workers use to demarcate between love making and sex for money. I think our culture forgets to remind both men and women that not everyone is built for casual sex and that they need to figure out where they stand by themselves. As for me, I once slept with a guy I had met afew times on campus and I felt really empty afterwards. It definitely wasnt worth the orgasm. I’m just not made for that life and I wish I had considered that before I walked into that room.

      • Kitten says:

        @ Craven- “Sex doesnt HAVE to be meaningful and yet it is for most people.”

        Are you sure about that? I think casual sex is pretty damn common. Just going by odds, it’s easy to find someone to have sex with, far harder to find someone to fall in love with.

        I think of myself as someone who has a really healthy approach to sex, mainly because I waited until I was emotionally ready and remained a virgin until I was 21.
        I had LOTS of casual and non-casual sex in the 17 years that followed and rarely did I ever feel “empty” afterwards. Most of the time the casual sex I had was with someone I was seeing casually and because I thought he was cute and fun, I wanted to see what sex was like with him. I don’t regret any of it. That being said, now I’m in a stable relationship with a wonderful guy that I’m in love with and the sex is amazing.

        But I’ve never understood the argument that one is inherently *better than* the other, it’s just different.
        *shrugs*

      • isabelle says:

        Isn’t Tyrese so called religious? Christianity, while nto as dogmatic int he past, still shames premarital sex. The funny thing you know Tyrese is breaking that rule but still thinks he hast he right to shame women when he probably breaking that religious code.

      • Craven says:

        Kitten who wrote, “I think of myself as someone who has a really healthy approach to sex.”

        So do I.

        The point is that we are all built differently. I love sex but found casual sex to be a depressing exercise. I have no issues with those who dont. The problem is that pop culture often presents casual sex as a badge of honor for the sex positive. “Oh you hate casual sex? You must have some sex hangups. Free yourself from religion and the patriarchy.” Which is ridiculous because it gives people unreasonable pressure to be something they cant be or dont even want to be.

        For many of us sex triggers our biochemistry to release bonding hormones which is why one night stands leave us so empty. There are also very good reasons that we biologically evolved this way (emotional bonding with a mate gives potential offspring a better shot at survival). So I see pop cultures refusal to acknowledge how many of us are biologically built as no differently than the patriachal pressure to remain “chaste” for God and a husband. It builds a pressure to express sexuality in a specific way. This is why I think the message should be “have casual sex if you like but work out if you are built for it first.”

      • Otaku Fairy says:

        @Babs: Sex can have consequences whether two people are just friends-with-benefits, hook-up/threesome partners, dating, engaged, married, divorced, or anything in-between. I think part of the reason why people are quick to say ‘sex shouldn’t be casual’ is because people conflate casual sex with ignoring all possible consequences and throwing all sense of responsibility to the wind. If people are having mutually consensual casual sex but are taking proper medical precautions, not disrespecting anyone’s monogamous relationships, not treating each other badly, and being honest and respectful about their own and the others’ needs, that’s responsible. There are people who are in committed relationships and even married who fail to do some of (or sadly, most of) those things.

      • detritus says:

        @craven
        Cosign. Exactly how I feel, right down to the oxytocin.

    • littlemissnaughty says:

      I don’t understand why sex shouldn’t be casual. And nobody has been able to explain it to me outside of a religious context. Because it’s “special” doesn’t count as an explanation. If you’re a consenting adult, why not?

      • TwistBarbie says:

        I don’t get it either. To me sex is like food. I can eat a greasy pizza and it’s delicious and fills me up and makes me happy. It will never compare to the transcendent experience of a 5-course, $400 dinner at a fine French restaurant, but they certainly both have a place.

      • Tashkent says:

        Do what you want. You won’t feel ashamed if you think what you’re doing is right and ok and there’s nothing wrong with it. But I and many others aren’t interested in promoting the idea that everyone is ok with casual sex, because a lot of people aren’t. And society is now pushing the idea that if you don’t sleep around then you’re a prude or frigid. I don’t see why people can’t present both sides and let others make up their mind.

      • Erinn says:

        Tahskent
        They’re replying to the OP’s comment “meaningless sex is not good for anyone”. So I think it’s pretty fair that they’re commenting what they did. You’re saying that people should be presented both sides and do what they feel comfortable with – which is in contradiction to the OP’s rather sweeping generalization. It IS good for some people. It IS bad for some other people.

        I also don’t think it’s a new thing that society is pushing, either. I remember being in Jr High a decade and a half ago and not sleeping around was just as hated as sleeping around ‘too much’. It’s always been like this – but the people who seem to push the “ew you’re a prude” or “ew you’re a slut” seem to have the same kind of emotional intelligence as the 7th graders who I recall saying it most – so ultimately – who cares what they think.

      • Otaku Fairy says:

        @Tashkent: I think you’re missing the point. Nobody is saying that everyone is ok with having casual sex, or has to pretend to be. Nobody is saying that people on both sides of that issue- people who are comfortable with having casual sex and people who are never ok with having casual sex- can’t express that for themselves either. It’s about Tyrese’s dehumanizing patriarchal beliefs about women’s value, his assumption that women dating around/having more sex meaning they don’t value themselves, and his idea that he’s entitled to be able to label women as sluts, hoes, etc. if they don’t comply to his beliefs about sex. And people who aren’t men and/or heterosexuals not being ok with themselves or other members of their group being shamed and disrespected with slurs and derogatory stereotypes isn’t and indication of thinking what one is doing is wrong. It’s an indication of not being ok with inequality and disrespect.
        I have to ask, though, why you’re apparently ok with him expressing beliefs that have helped abusers and gotten women and girls hurt and killed on a regular basis, but not ok with women criticizing him for it? It seems like Tyrese isn’t the only male with problematic views about women here.

    • Naddie says:

      I understand the feeling, but I only agree when it comes about respect. Some people enjoy casual sex and that’s fine, but I admit I don’t like the idea of just using bodies to get pleasure. I’m talking about people who are willing to got to bed with someone they despise, just to get theirs. While I don’t think it’s right to police anyone’s intimate life, I wouldn’t think highly of someone like that.
      And this guy plays a sexist douche so well, no surprises.

    • Ain'tNoTelling says:

      @ Babs, here’s the problem with your perspective: sex can become non-meaningful with someone who you once had ‘meaningful’ sex with. Also, ‘meaningful sex’ is completely subjective.

      Tyrese is as misogynistic as they come (excuse the pun). Don’t let his statements go over your head.

      I strongly suspect that Tyrese has this Madonna/Whore narrative because he deems all of the women whom he pursued as one night stands, or as casual sex partners, who actually had sex with him, as beneath the women who wouldn’t have sex with him. In his mind, women who won’t have sex with him are doing so because they are “good girls” rather than women exercising their very own sexual agency, and deciding that they DO NOT want to have sex with him, specifically. This Madonna/ Whore narrative allows him (in his own mind) to remove that woman’s sexual agency, and allow him ultimate control by deeming her as a good girl, or a slut. This is so disgusting, and it is all about power.

      His statement about women knowing their worth has nothing to do with women’s healthy self-esteem. It has to do with him covering up his denial of his own injured ego. What an a-hole.

      Btw, Tyrese has always been an a-hole. He was my neighbor in LA at one time, so I heard this crap from him way before he started spouting off to the press.

  16. HK9 says:

    Exactly. It’s always the ones who partied so hard they earned themselves a PhD in hookers & blow, and are now married for two minutes prancing around town giving advice. No-he needs to shut it, live his life quietly and check back with us in 20 years. You know where he’ll be in 20 years??? On his fourth wife….misogynoir at it’s best.

  17. Kitten says:

    Exactly! Everything you said.

    He could have made the point that women shouldn’t settle without bringing sex into it because that is COMPLETELY irrelevant.

    He had to make it about women and our sex lives because he’s a misogynist. BTW, MANY dudes also settle because they’re terrified of being alone–this is hardly specific to women.

    ETA: Where did her comment go? It was a good one.

  18. Nicole says:

    He been staying the fool that’s why most black women dont f*ck with this clown.

  19. Almondjoy says:

    I dragged him on his ig page and will continue to do so. Also very sick of his comments where he always trying to “educate” women. He feels he can tell us how we should dress, wear our hair etc. YOU DONT GET TO DECIDE WHAT A WOMAN WEARS OR PUTS ON HER FACE/BODY.

    Also got a good giggle a few years back when he posted this long essay about how in love he is with Janelle Monae and everybody was tagging her in it and she straight ignored him i was like yassss sis ignore this clown

  20. Sage says:

    I remember when he boarded a bus singing and humming always Coca-Cola. It’s sad he turned into a douche.

  21. Suki says:

    Oh my god, men who use these kinds of terms are so unappealing.

  22. Suki says:

    No-one makes as much noise as a reformed sinner.

    Why do men always complain about ‘tha hoes’ after they’ve slept with them?

  23. Snowflake says:

    I’m so glad you guys don’t buy into this. I passed out at a party when i was 16 and got gang raped. I felt so worthless after that, for a long time. I think because i was brought up that your virginity or being chaste was so important, i felt like i had lost that and i felt dirty. I don’t feel that way, now, thankfully. But this line of thinking is so bad

  24. PettyRiperton says:

    Tyrese need to go home and be a family man leave us alone. I’m so tired of these dudes trying to tells us what we’re doing wrong and how we should fix it. Don’t worry about us focus on keeping your married penis out of sluts, skeezers, hoes, tramps and overly aggressive promiscuous women.

  25. Megan2 says:

    Is he running for a position in Heavy D’s administration? Maybe there’s an opening in Bigly’s Ministry for Women’s Well-Being, since this entire world seems to have started running on the Opposite Day timeline. We can put this POS in charge of women’s reproductive health, since he is so concerned about our mileage, and he can have his orange friend sign off on the order that before women can be prescribed birth control, they must first allow themselves to be grabbed by the pussy to determine their acceptable purity mileage.

    F*cking bag of pus. I hates you, Tyrese. I hates you so much.

  26. Cleo says:

    All the judgment surrounding sex and whether or not someone is having it is disgusting and exhausting, at least for me. I’m in college, so it’s especially salient all the time.

    Other women get judged for going out, having a good time, and maybe capping the night with some sex. I don’t see the problem. As long as it’s fun and you’re both consenting adults, get yours. On the other hand, I get judged and get called a “prude” because I’ve been with my boyfriend since the beginning of college. Women really can’t win.

    For ME, I want to be intimate with someone I love and respect and feels the same about me. But I can only speak for myself, I would never push my own preferences and opinions on someone else.

    • TryingToThink says:

      It is blackmail.
      A woman in a long-term relationship or a woman who doesn’t do ONS when single is *irony on* a cold hard rock.
      A woman who has an active sex life is a slut when she refuses some random guy.
      A woman who has an active sex life is a slut when she doesn’t sleep with all the guys in the pub.
      A woman who has refused some random guy is called a slut not worthy of attention because that makes the poor refused guy feel better.

      It is blackmail. Simple as that. And by calling a woman a slut a man does both give evidence of his character as well as evidence of the company he keeps: pimps, obviously.

  29. Taiss says:

    As a black woman I’m so tired of black men doing this. I’m more upset at BET for being part of this mess and giving it a platform. Why are they so obsessed with women’s vaginas? I’m so over the queen vs hoes/bitches… they’re always acting there’s only one certain type of woman that deserves respect, when you’re out that lane, all bets are off.

    Just yesterday a black woman got killed in front of her students by her husband because of domestic violence, tyrese is really quiet. But always acting as if women being “promiscuous” is the biggest problem in the world.

    If you cared about women so much, you’d educate yourself on what bothering us the most, instead of trying to educate us on how to be women, you’re not a woman yourself, bitch!!!!

    • Deering says:

      God, I hate the entire Steve Harvey “blame black women for evry-damn-thing wrong with the black community–they should submit and shut up” mindset. That shit needs to die in a ton of fires. Too many black men feel that by judging/controlling black women, they maintain their masculinity. They bitterly resent the strong black women who raised them and they take that out on every woman in their lives. Hey, everybody’s gotta have a dog to kick, right? :p

  30. Luci Lu says:

    Anybody, male or female, who would listen to, or take any kind of advice from him, has to be ignorant, (See: Stupid). He can’t talk. It is also very obvious that he is wholly-incapable of stringing two coherent sentences together. Did he even finish high school?

  31. Rb says:

    I need him to just stfu. Nobody cares what he thinks. I feel sorry for his wife.

  32. Pandy says:

    Wow, what happened to his looks? Lotta mileage on that face, yikes!!!!

  33. Lady Rain says:

    Tyrese needs to have all the seats.

    I used the have the biggest crush on him years ago until he ruined it by opening his mouth to spew his trademark misogynistic nonsense.

  34. Pixie says:

    Any man who hates women like this probably deep down doesn’t like vagina.

  35. vespernite says:

    I’m having meaningless sex while I type this, let’s see…..YUP feels just as good as ” in love to my eyeballs” sex! You sir are an asshat!

  36. TryingToThink says:

    He is talking about the kind of women he knows. ;-)
    As a wise lady said: the way a man talks about women tells you about his character and about the company he keeps. So apparently Tyrese knows golddiggers very well?

  37. Ana says:

    There’s women who go to lunches every day!? The horror. What shameful debauchery.

    Jesus, Tyrese.

  38. AnotherDirtyMartini says:

    He’s gotten ugly. What happened? Turns out he’s ugly on the inside too. AND Tyrese, women like men who can speak properly. Please educate yourself.
