“Real” women are the most annoying people on Earth

"Real" housewives

Okay, hear me out on this. I cannot stand it when a woman (or man, for that matter) describes herself (or himself) as “real”. What does that even mean? Every time I see it mentioned, it’s either in the Twitter bio of someone who doesn’t know how to control her tongue or stated right before someone says something brash. It’s usually something like, “She looks huge in those jeans. Someone should tell her. Friends don’t let friends look like that… I’m just being real.” Or it could be, “I’m not being rude, just being real… But he smells like 40,000 years of funk.”

There is never a case where the words “rude” and “real” should ever be confused–they’re not synonyms!! People use the term as an excuse to say some really ugly, rude, and hateful things. It’s freakin’ annoying!!

The truth is that if a person really is “real”, I don’t need them to tell me so–it’s pretty apparent. If it’s a really good friend, I would expect that person to tell me about myself (in a way that only a friend could) when I’m outta line. If it’s a girlfriend, I would expect her to do the same and to know when it’s appropriate to speak her mind. Even though you may be extremely passionate about something, it is not always appropriate to voice your feelings. Doing so on a consistent basis will cause men to deem you “undate-able”, and we will run from you faster than Sanya Richards-Ross running from whomever is in second place. (By the way, Sanya, if you’re reading this, feel free to fall in love with me. *wink*)

The bottom line is if that’s what “real” is, keep it away from me. It’s not attractive when anyone acts that way, and it doesn’t give you any kind of status to be the person with no filter. It just kinda makes you the most annoying person on Earth.

Until next time…
