So the rumor is that Chris Brown and Rihanna are back together again.
I personally feel very saddened by this news and here's why:
Chris Brown beat the shit out of Rihanna. For whatever reason it was for, he laid his hands on a woman. The photo of her after the ordeal is the proof in the pudding (or not?). Now, it is my personal belief that one should NEVER, EVER touch a woman in that manner. Let me repeat that:
A woman should never be disrespected and hurt like that by another man.
What upsets me so much though is not the fact that she would take him back after what has happened, but the message this sends to all of her female fans.
She is basically condoning Chris Brown's behavior.
She is saying it is alright for a man to beat down a woman he supposedly loves, because Chris beat her down, but she went back to him.
I mean C'MON, what the fuck?!?!?! Have some god damn balls Rihanna!!! This is pathetic. You can have ANYONE. But you choose to take back this weasel after he laid his hands on you for the whole world to see.
It's just sad to me, very very sad. It shows how insecure Rihanna is. It shows how young and immature she is when it comes to relationships. Moreover, it sends a very very dangerous message: it is ok to forgive and forget when a man hits you. That should NEVER be OK. I don't care what the woman did, or how bad she hurt the guy. I don't care if she slept with his best friend, took a video of it and sent it to his parents, you NEVER hit a girl.
The only solace I have is that Chris Brown's career is over. I hope at least that it is. A part of me though thinks that just like Rihanna took him back, his fans will as well.
And now, a parody:
YOU DIDN'T TAKE ME DOWN LAST NIGHT!!
