Why We Need More Ayesha Currys And Less Amber Roses

In the age Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter it has become the norm for women to express themselves by taking provocative photos. We’ve seen regular women become overnight celebs due to the praise of this type of behavior, but what example are they setting for our future black women? Are we teaching them that popularity is more important than self respect? Ayesha Curry, who’s the wife of NBA star Steph Curry, was recently attacked on Twitter for simple stating her preference in clothing.

Ayesha states:

Nothing wrong with either sentiment, right? She wasn’t lecturing others about their fashion choices; she was merely stating her personal preference and trying to start a conversation. She did that, all right, and found herself both praised and pilloried, with a great number of responses.

Amber Rose, on the other hand, was recently involved in a “Slut Walk” where she protested about perceived promiscuity, and how it affected her relationships with Kanye West and Wiz Khalifa. While her intensions maybe good many refused to get over the fact that she’s an ex video model/stripper who tend to use her personal “assets” as a unique selling proposition. She recently exchanged words with West and Khloe Kardashian, who both slammed her for her past.

Despite the negative attention Rose continues to flaunt her assets for all to see. Is this a problem? No, not at all but it becomes one when people like her are praised by little girls for having a “great body” instead of actually doing anything to contribute to society. Amber Rose, herself, is not to blame for this widespread issue. It is the people who’d rather support an ex stripper baring it all while bashing a housewife willing to cover it up.

What do you think: Did critics have a point in accusing Ayesha of shaming women with her tweet or were her words misconstrued? Let us know what you think.
