And since we all came from a woman
Got our name from a woman and our game from a woman
I wonder why we take from our women
Why we rape our women, do we hate our women?
I think it’s time to kill for our women
Time to heal our women, be real to our women
And if we don’t we’ll have a race of babies
That will hate the ladies, that make the babies
And since a man can’t make one
He has no right to tell a woman when and where to create one
So will the real men get up
I know you’re fed up ladies, but keep your head up
I used this song and “Big Pimpin’” to contrast how gender roles are portrayed in modern rap music for a school project.
This made me cry so much.
#Can we please talk about this scene again for a second #But seen from a different point of view #Yes, Damon was devastated because his friend was dying #And he wanted to stay with him so he won’t be alone #But just after Alaric passed away, seeing Damon’s face, it hit me #The reason why they were such amazing friends #Because in a lot of ways they were alike #Both protective #Caring #Emotional #And just then… #I think Damon remember the time he was turned #Because he didn’t want to #Just as Alaric didn’t want to #This is why he didn’t want to see him become a vampire #This is why he admired him and was fine with his choice to die #Because deep down he wished he had done the same #Deep down he wished he had died and had never become a vampire
