A few months back, actress Lauren London (played in ATL), caught some flack for publicly stating what most say in private; she LOVES a thug.
So you want a man who’s both honest and thug? An authentic gangsta—that deletes about half the rap game off your list. I love guys who are street. I won’t even give soft guys a chance. Menace II Society is my shit! Caine was like my first crush. Actually, O-Dog was my true dream guy. I was in love with him, from that opening scene where he pops the convenience-store worker. He had me from that gunshot [laughs]. He was ’hood, and I loved that.
London references the 1993 film Menace II Society. In the film, one of the main characters kills a convenience store clerk in the opening scene. This is a "turn on" for her.
In my earlier post, For The Record, I hate Thugs, the use of the word "hate" on my part is very deliberate. I don't "hate" the person but I hate the actions and the mentality. Do you know how many men sit in prison for crimes committed trying to impress a beautiful woman such a Lauren. I understand she is young, 21 I believe, but many young men come to believe to compete they have to be hard, have to be gangsta.
This is wrong. We women have to stand up and say it's wrong.
