(This should be my entire article, just typing the word “no” with a gazillion o’s after it, but Bambi, my boss, says I actually have to write shit in my articles, so whatever, I’ll try and write something about why this whole Rihanna having a child with Chris brown is a bad idea, but I will be adding extra “nooooo’s” all over it.)
First off, let’s start with some statistics!
Domestic violence is the leading cause of injury to women—more than car accidents, muggings, and rapes combined.
In a national survey of American families, 50% of the men who frequently assaulted their wives also frequently abused their children.
There is also a evidence that says that it takes seven times for a woman to leave her partner after he has been abusive towards her. I know that there is a lot of abuse in same-sex relationships but since we are focusing on a heterosexual relationship, I won’t go into those details here at this time. Abuse can happen in any relationship.
I know that Chris Brown has stated numerous times he has made a mistake. I know that Rihanna has said that she has forgiven him. I realize that they are both adults and capable of making their own decisions and all of that, but I still don’t think Rihanna should have a baby with Chris Brown. According to The Daily Mail:
Speaking frankly about her relationship with Brown, who assaulted her before the 2009 Grammy Awards, Rihanna said: ‘Stay [her new single] is a story about having love that close and wanting it to last forever. You don’t have that feeling with everybody so when you have it you don’t want to let go of it. I would definitely say that he [Chris Brown] is the one I have that kind of relationship with.’
And on the subject of children the Barbadian beauty said: ‘I will probably have a kid. And I’m praying I can go on vacation for a good month. And I’ll have set some things up so I don’t have to tour for the rest of my life, even though I love touring. I want health and happiness in five years. I want to be healthy and happy.’
I don’t expect Rihanna to be a role model for women, including her throngs of pre-teen and teenage fans who may also be in abusive relationships. I don’t expect her to live her life any way then how she wants to live it. I think she is gorgeous, and extremely talented, and I also think Chris Brown is an asshole. I’m sure Rihanna is smart and capable of making her own decisions but I just hope she thinks long and hard about having a child with someone who is a backyard breeder of pit bulls and frequently refers to women as “bitches.” Not to mention a man convicted of beating her.
