  • Speaking with Jamaican men and women....

    ....there seems to be a disconnect.

    Many women are looking for Christian men who will go to church with them, non-smokers, men who don't drink heavily or stay out late. The young women are specifying no tattoos, earrings or sagging pants.

    Yet so many men are smokers, drinkers, parties who use herb and have no use for church. Many of the young men are into the earrings, sagging pants and tattoos. Young and old are into staying out late, gambling, etc.

    How can men and women raised in the same culture have such different expectations?

          Smoking, drinking, smoking herb, staying out all night, saggy pants, tattoos, earrings and gold chains, sound like deal breakers to me. Why can't men just behave normally?

            Come on J-Kid and other men don't be shy.

            I spoke with a Jamaican man yesterday and he had a theory. Boys get to the stage where they test limits. Since so many boys are being raised in single parent homes and the fathers are shirking their responsibility, the mothers have a hard time controlling them and making them obey rules like getting home at a decent hour. They run wild and party and the influence of the peer group takes over.

            Do you think there is merit in this argument? You too Xavier.

                Then how come the males are much wilder than the females. Mark you some a de young gyal dem a gi de men a run fi dem money.


                ..and as fi de locks....




                ..so many men with locks and women with weaves. And when it comes to the sagging pants, in JA they are sagging in the back AND front.

                So J-Kid you thin that the parents are too busy partying themselves and not parenting and that this is responsible for the wild behaviour and outlandish dress?
