Erykah Badu once said about the many men she’s dated: “I learned just as much from them as they learned from me. I’m a cold motherfucker, though. But the people I’m with are cold too, they’re a reflection of that. Become a cold motherfucker and the motherfuckers will just come like magnets.” It’s certainly a blueprint to live your life by and one that’s worked out for Badu. She’s bagged Andre 3000, Common, the D.O.C., and Jay Electronica. She’s had songs written about her (allegedly) like Outkast’s “Ms. Jackson,” and her collaboration with Common, “Love of My Life (Ode to Hip Hop)” won them both a Grammy. Whatever she’s doing—it’s working!

On Twitter yesterday, a meme was circulated accusing Jada Pinkett Smith and Erykah Badu of having “pussies” that will “fuck your life up.” It’s a bit cruel, and probably sexist, as it ignores the choices of men in their separate relationships and places the burden of those relationship failures squarely on women. Whatever, that’s not really the point. The important thing here is that Badu responded after someone tagged her asking: “Y’all better leave @fatbellybella outta this lol.”

I’ve helpfully transcribed a list of ways that Erykah Badu describes her pussy, in case you need them for reference down the line:

Hope it helps! Pinkett Smith, meanwhile, has remained silent on the meme. Just as she’s remained silent on her promise to bring herself to the Red Table. Maybe Badu could use her pussy powers to intervene, here? I’m dying of anticipation!

Erykah has a point. When I was dating, men ghosted me when I was nice and caring. But when I blew them off, ignored them, and overall treated them like shit, they were a lot more interested in me. I didn't enjoy that attention. 

One guy disappeared and reappeared for three months. When I told him not to contact me ever again, he called, emailed, and texted non-stop that day. He contacted me more times in a 24 hour period than he did in three months, begging to see me again. 

I know this push-pull crap is why romcoms exist, but in reality, the men who took my rejection as a challenge were frightening.
