No, I Can’t Be Your Ayesha Curry So Stop Fucking Asking (I Can Be Me Tho)

No, I can’t be your Ayesha Curry. Now, there is not really anything wrong or exceptionally outstanding about this woman. For starters, she’s beautiful, seemingly a supportive wife, takes care of two gorgeous kids, and is quite vocal on social media. She’s also a business woman and, apparently, a great chef. She’s a black man’s dream and is constantly being held up on this pedestal of what other black women should aspire to be (unless you’re Stephen A. Smith and like your women to shut the f*** up and look pretty).

But, here’s the thing; No. This is not 1918 where a good women was one that was pumped out of a cookie cutter machine, all exactly the same. I can be wife material while also being an individual. That is actually what makes people so incredible; we are all different and unique and special because our stories are ours alone. So, no I can’t be your version of Ayesha Curry because my version of Latifah Miles is good enough. She is special enough. She is unique enough.

Black women are constantly dragged through the mud and considered non-marriage material. We are too loud, and outrageous, and aggressive, and talk back, and don’t respect our men, and blah blah blah. Ayesha Curry, somehow circumvents those stereotypes and becomes the perfect wife because of here outward image. But, still no. I can’t be her for you. If a good wife is a woman that fits into a narrow and incredibly confining list of requirements then there is something wrong with you, not me.

So, unless you can be Steph Curry and make millions for us, be a star NBA player, and marry me at the ripe young age of 23 because you don’t want anybody else because you are just such a good ass man, then begone!

    1. I’d love to know because she’s a regular woman. What’s funny is that the men that ain’t shit and surround themselves with fellow ain’t shit people are the main ones worshipping her.
