The delicate act of calling out Jussie Smollett and still be a pro-LGBTQ voice

The matter has opened a can of worms. On January 29, 2019, Smollett alleged that he was subject of a hate crime in the city of Chicago neighbourhood which allegedly involved a noose and bleach. He claimed that he was attacked by two white men in ski masks, who yelled homophobic slurs at him and yelled “MAGA Country!” While he was released earlier that morning, it was a case of homophobia and the world normally lends its voice against such. Celebrities like Shonda Rhimes, Ava Duvernay, Viola Davis, Cardi B, Kamala Harris, Corey Booker and others lent their support and spoke against hate crimes. The Nigerian brothers Jussie Smollett allegedly hired. (The Blast) Two brothers of Nigerian descent, Olabinjo and Abimbola Osundairo - one of whom served as an extra on “Empire,” the show Smollett stars on - and the other one; Smollett’s trainer were questioned on the matter but were later released by police as new e...

Unpopular Opinion: Postponing sex till marriage won’t make your relationship stronger or last longer

Every opinion on premarital sex sounds just logical and may be worth believing in and holding on to - but surely not this one. There are two obvious camps when it comes to the issue of premarital sex: those for it and those against it – each camp holding to their beliefs because they honestly believe in its merits. And there can be no right or wrong here. Each opinion, when it comes to people’s predisposition to premarital sex, sounds just logical and is worth believing in and holding on to. For example, those who have no qualms with premarital sex often justify their position with reasons such as the need to ascertain sexual chemistry before marriage,  and the need to ‘test the goods’ before ‘buying’ them and taking them home. For some premarital sex is simply about sampling the act before committing to a lifetime with a partner. [Credit: Youtube]...

The secret ingredient of happiness in Serena Williams’ marriage: The simpler things are the most important

Her husband, Alexis Ohanian says the pricey gifts partners give each other are good, but the simple things are far more valuable. Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian tied the knot in 2017 shortly after the birth of their daughter, Olympia. And while their relationship has received a lot of publicity and social media hype for the huge, lavish displays of love in it, Alexis says those are really not the things that keep his relationship with the 37-year-old athlete. “I’ve done a few things that you may have seen on social media—things that have gotten me plenty of teasing from my friends, as well as other husbands on the Internet who’ve said I’m making them look bad. Alexis and Serena dancing into their wedding in November of 2017 [Credit: Essence] "It started when I put up some billboards for my wife, a.k.a. the GMOAT (greatest mom of all time), to celebrate her first tournament after having our daughter, A...

Here's what to do when sex was better with your ex than with your current partner

When sex sucks with your partner and you can’t help but constantly remember that ex who always got you good... Almost everyone is someone else’s ex. What this means is that there is every likelihood that you are dating someone who once had a failed romantic and sexual relationship with someone else. Of course there is nothing wrong with having an ex. Sometimes, things are just not meant to be and it’s fine to move away from those situations to better, happier ones. However, one of the problems of moving from one relationship to the other is the [almost inevitable] issue of comparisons. It is often really difficult for people to not place their ex beside their next in comparison. It is not always intended. But it almost always happens. One result of this is that one partner always falls short. Either in one aspect or another, it could be financially, care-wise, compatibility, communication or in the aspect of sex....

Why you should never trash-talk your partner to friends, family

This is the limit to what you can tell outsiders about your relationship. Yes, your friends and family are outsiders, too. Due to the ever-present tendency of humans to make mistakes and the inevitability of conflicts in relationships, it is quite impossible to be with someone and not have something to complain about, even if it's minor. How you choose to go about this is actually a very delicate issue that needs to be talked about. We have already said it here that the best way to communicate in a relationship, whether about the good things or the bad, is with one’s partner. In that enlightening piece published here, we said that “reaching out to your partner, communicating with him or her honestly about your concern should  be your first recourse when there is an issue bugging you in [your] relationship. “What happens when you communicate first with other people is a reversal of the ideal cycle....
