Jada Pinkett-Smith has published a series of deep and provocative pieces on her Facebook page, and the latest focuses on men and women in relationships. The actress doles out wisdom and insight as she tackles heavy issues like domestic violence, objectification, materialism and gender inequality. Here’s the post in its entirety:

The war on men through the degradation of woman.

How is man to recognize his full self, his full power through the eye’s of an incomplete woman? The woman who has been stripped of Goddess recognition and diminished to a big ass and full breast for physical comfort only. The woman who has been silenced so she may forget her spiritual essence because her words stir too much thought outside of the pleasure space. The woman who has been diminished to covering all that rots inside of her with weaves and red bottom shoes.

I am sure the men, who restructured our societies from cultures that honored woman, had no idea of the outcome. They had no idea that eventually, even men would render themselves empty and longing for meaning, depth and connection. There is a deep sadness when I witness a man that can’t recognize the emptiness he feels when he objectifies himself as a bank and truly believes he can buy love with things and status. It is painful to witness the betrayal when a woman takes him up on that offer. He doesn’t recognize that the create of a half woman has contributed to his repressed anger and frustration of feeling he is not enough. He then may love no woman or keep many half women as his prize. He doesn’t recognize that it’s his submersion in the imbalanced warrior culture, where violence is the means of getting respect and power, as the reason he can break the face of the woman who bore him four children.

When woman is lost, so is man. The truth is, woman is the window to a man’s heart and a man’s heart is the gateway to his soul.

Power and control will NEVER out weigh love.

May we all find our way.

    As if the degradation of women in and of itself is not horrific enough, oh no, no, no, let’s make it about the supposed war on men. Heaven forbid a conversation on the degrading of women focus on…….women.

    Anyone else find it interesting how on her place card it says Ms. and not Mrs. Thought that was neat.

    • I didn’t think it was neat as much as disturbing IMO.

    • T.

      Why do you find it disturbing?

    • Dropping the “S” was probably to save space on the card. I don’t think there was anything significant about that.

    I am “nodding my head” in agreement to Ms. Jada’s very profound statements. It is the truth arising from traditional teachings in which present-day society has veered away from. Somewhere down the line, women began to need men more than a man needed a woman. Once this happened, standards were compromised, less was expected; therefore, the man did less in essence they became lost. Some women decided to suppress their inner Goddess and beliefs, and allow the outer appearance to take precedence. The woman does set the stage. So I can see in which aspect J is coming from. These are some pointers for women to think about.

      SMDH – like I said, this is not about EQUALITY – this is a hostile take over!

      “Her inner Goddess!”

      In all honesty im happy that men are awakening to the fact that many feminist do not want equality. They want to have even more of an advantage then men. The most priviledge class in America is white women. but they complain so much. Black women are not the problem brothers do not be fooled. Black women are loving and strong and take responsibility , the ghetto ones thats another story lol. But white women oh my God they complain but yet they are the most privilidge pampered people in America. Every time black woman complain about racism , every body shames them and tells them to be a strong black women. White woman complain about something that do not matter and things get done to meet their demands, and they are supposed to be oppressed.

      They complain about wage gaps , when most of the jobs they work are safe, they get paid the same as men when they do the same work as men. But when men are doing dangerous jobs such as firemen , or involved in construction or logging , they have to be compesated for risking their lives.

      The most oppressed class of people in America is the black man. We are fed ignorance by rappers and thugs. The image of the black woman in America is way better than the black man. America will accept a black women before black men any day. But there are bad people.

      next point black love can exist if good people get with good people. Its the bad people that ruin it for everyone and by bad I mean selfish coniving people that are only looking out for themselves and will screw over and manipulate people to get what they want.

      I used to think feminism was good when I was a kid, of course I want women to have every single opportunity that a man is given , but when you also demand special treatment and rights that men do not have , to gain an advantage, thats where you are going to stop winning and men will come to their senses slowly but surely, laws have to be rewritten. I do not even mind if women have a little of an advantage over men, but the way we are headed no no no no things are gettting to out of hand.

    By reading the title of the article, I thought it was about the degrading of women in the media…anyways

    I don’t get it. From reading her letter about a lost woman & a lost man..I feel you are only what you attract.So how about you find yourself & know your self worth before you think about getting with anyone. Beautifully written though…

    • Trinity

      Hmm..that is true! you are only what you attract…if you are lost, then you will attract a lost person. Same for well-rounded holistic people, once they attract the same – a powercouple is created.

      No true.

  • Val

    Weird logic from Jada. I think she is trying to be provocative for the sake of being provocative.
