Romance Sweet Love by Bell Hooks

1 Comment

Whoa! this passage was intense for both genders on the playing field. As a male, i was slightly offended by how Bell Hooks said that “Men are led by their penis , seduced by erotic desire, they often end up in relationships with partners with whom they share no common interests of values”. this is statement sis not true to every man out in the world; the men that bell hooks stereotype  is exactly what it is A STEREOTYPE. This passage had me angry till mu progessor explained that Bell Hooks is from a different time era and maybe the men form her time were like the ones in this passage. Also, i never realized how much women sacrificed to be where they are today. Women who could have en the “Top Dog”, but put those plans behind to start their life with their loved one(s).

This passage had me angry until my professor explained the situation with Bell Hooks and we had a class discussion on the sacrifices that women make , which in turn, turned out to be a great little reading.

  1. Men and women have come a long way in working towards more egalitarian roles in relationships and breaking out of traditional patterns that we are conditioned to fall into by our culture. Thanks for pointing out that not all men are this way or all women are that way.
