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.”
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.
