T.I. continues to share his opinions as it pertains to women. Maybe he feels he’s the “lady whisperer” in real life, but more often than not his comments bring more backlash than praise. His recent appearance on the first episode of the What She Said podcast entitled “Marriage, Sex, and Parental Guidance.”
Within the conversation, Clifford “T.I.” Harris shares that a sense of misogyny is what women look for in their choice of men.
“The women out there who say they want a man who ain’t got not [other women], dem women ain’t really want a man who ain’t got no [other women],” the Atlanta rapper confidently states. “Just think about a man who ain’t got no [other women] and that energy, and how that is, and how that feels, and what it looks like. That’s what attracts you to that n***a, cause he have [other women], that energy. That ‘misogyny,’ you speak so poorly of,” he said, almost mockingly.
He added, “That s**t provides a vibe that you are obviously attracted to,” he continued. “It puts out pheromones, you understand me? And them pheromones cause you to be attracted. And I’m not saying that it’s right to be this way or that it’s wrong to be this way, I’m just saying the fact that it is this way. I’m not trying to excuse, merely explain.”
At around the 22-minute mark on the video, things take an awkward turn when the rapper emphatically declares to the other ladies in the conversation that women who don’t perform oral aren’t deserving of being wives. Stammering, he begins, “I.. Don’t know where to start with this one.”
“This is not it,” says one of the women. It is then that T.I. makes his bold statement. “Women who do not give h**d don’t deserve to be married!” said the rapper. “I said that… That’s my own lil’ opinion.” The ladies ask him if that’s his final answer, to which he affirms that it is. He further feels that the man would proceed to fulfill that desire elsewhere.
Adding on to his “good information” he continued, “To be honest with you, if you are my everything – that means everything I need – it shouldn’t be nothing happening anywhere else that I can’t get here at home. Nothing! I don’t care what it is.” He then proceeds to list what he feels should not be off limits in relationships.
