When they make a generalized statement that Black men who experience financial success, will abandon Black women and seek out Caucasian women, people nod their heads in agreement. When they refuse the existence of biological differences between males and females, people nod their heads in agreement. When they say video games attribute to violence, people nod their heads in agreement.
Why are these things acceptable, although incredibly inaccurate? They each align with our politically correct environment.
There are several reasons my wife decided to create One Gentleman’s Perspective. Often times, we have conversations that go against the wave of political correctness. She knew in the midst of creating the blog, I would address certain things that are not politically correct.
Babe, being this way will not gain you a huge following.
However, she also says…
There are people who are not interested in hearing lies and things that make them feel good. They just want a genuine perspective.
I do not believe and neither does she, that my perspective is factual. There will be posts where I will have to use factual evidence, from stats of course. Overall, perspective implies an opinion. It may not be factual, but it will be honest.
What does this all mean?
If my female friend mentions that her previous boyfriends all cheated, the politically correct thing is to throw men under the bus. This may soothe her feelings, but it provides no help going forward.
You see, men do not value good women. Deep down, men like chasing skirts and are never satisfied.
The explanation above makes her feel good inside, like a freshly baked brownie or her favorite flavor of ice cream. It takes her away from reality for the moment, but does nothing in the long haul.
Through One Gentleman’s Perspective, you will not find that here. The truth is not about making you feel good, though it may. The truth is about providing a genuine perspective. It does not mean it is factual, because a perspective is simply an opinion.
If a female friend tells me all of her boyfriends cheated, I am going to provide an honest response, making her alert of signs in the future. I will assist her in making better decisions in her dating selection of men.
Everything we do, and of course things we may not, have consequences. Energy is something that occurs naturally. What you put out, is what you take in. There is something you are subconsciously emitting, that attracts deceitful men.
Take some time and reflect on yourself, because inside this self-reflection, you will find the answer. Eventually, your energy will begin to change. It goes from attracting negativity, to eventually bringing forth positive-minded men.
Political correctness says you do not have to accept accountability. If you think I am kidding, listen closely when hot button issues play out in the media. As a media personality, if you even think of providing a truthful response to anything, you risk sponsorship, your job and reputation.
Through One Gentleman’s Perspective, I do not believe in coddling the feelings of adults, simply to spare their feelings. There is a way to do this of course, without coming across negatively. I am not saying you should approach a complete stranger on the beach and say:
My gosh, you are so fat
My gosh, you are so bloody anorexic
There are cultures where this is completely acceptable by the way. Although you are telling the truth in these two examples, it is not the time or place. It is definitely the opposite of tactful. However, I have a problem with the degree that political correctness is taking over everything.
Sadly, it is adults and not children, whom are leading the charge of this PC-era. Imagine if I were a music artist, prepping his fifth album for a summer release. The company says I can only have one member of my team, present in the studio.
On one hand, they offered a Yes Man from their office. Regardless what track I demo for him; it is always the best thing ever.
Fireeeee. That is hot dude. Where did you get the inspiration? It sounds like Mozart.
On the other hand, I have a childhood friend who tells me exactly what I need to hear, even when I may not like the response.
That’s GARBAGE! The words do not sound right in the second half. I think it goes against the sound you were describing yesterday. Honestly, change it or scrap the song altogether.
If we consider the Yes Man as being PC, and my friend as anti-PC…you can keep the PC garbage. I want my childhood friend. His criticism may bruise my ego for the moment, but he will be helpful and truthful in the long-term.
…to be continued
Love the meme and ain’t that the truth!
I love your perspective and am looking forward to part 2.

Thanks. I was hoping the eyes of sadness, would be able to pinpoint the state of what telling the truth has become. LoL. I just uploaded the second, which I have had saved for about two weeks, Hopefully you find that it blends well with the first piece.

I love this post. Cute time out puppy, too.;)
Some of the best things in my life have come from men brave enough to speak their perspective, not necessarily what I wanted to hear, but what I needed to hear. That’s what genuine love really is all about, putting someone else’s needs above your own. One of things I appreciate about my husband is his brutal honesty. He’s very kind of course, but he’s never been afraid to risk my disapproval by speaking the truth.

LoL. The puppy idea was golden. My wife loved it. I love when women, men, boys and girls, are able to tell me the truth. Children are the best at this. They will tell you whatever is on their mind, but you know what, I love this about children.
They are unfiltered. Yeah, there are instances they may convey this unfiltered perspective in public, but you can address this at a later point. Overall, I love how they see X and ask specifically about X. When they get older, society teaches them to see X, but make up Y or Z or not say anything at all. I think this is hogwash. You can speak the truth without your delivery being offensive. Then again, offense is similar to beauty. What you see, is not what I see.
Your husband sounds similar to me. My wife says she loves that I do not say XYZ just because. I give the truth, but in a manner that the other person knows, it is not coming from a place to offend. If you ask if this dress is ugly, I won’t lie to you. I will tell you the truth, so you will not purchase/leave the house wearing it, thinking I love it but really dislike it. The same applies with her. If I am shopping for a suit with my tailor and she says the fit is off, etc…I prefer that response versus ,”Oh my gosh babe, that looks great on you.”
