No Country for Territory Marking...


Here's the thing about 90% of the women I know and the woman I am. When I decide that I am "with" a guy, I'm with him. That's it. Until he puts me curbside, we mutually agree upon a split, or I've done all I can do... I'm in it. This is what grown azz women do. They stick. They've been to the circus, they've seen the clowns and their head is not going to be turned by a balloon trick or an offer of cotton candy. We don't want a pony ride when we've already got a stallion... ya dig?

So someone please tell me (fellas!) why men still feel the need to indulge in various forms of pissing contests? If the woman is already won, why mark the territory? Inquiring minds want to know.

About six years ago, BougieMom and I were in a house in Plano that we were thinking of buying. We sat down, worked the numbers, took a look at property taxes and skated our behinds back towards Dallas county. 

Here's some backstory: At the time, we had a completely ratchet landscaper named Darryl. This was back when I still worked that "give a brother a break" program. Darryl was a bruh-man trying to get his Plano hustle on. By doing our yard well, he was asked to handle other houses in the subdivision. Darryl got so full of himself doing all the other yards that ours started looking a hot mess. Darryl and BougieMom and I experienced many a falling out. But we were trying to "give a brother a break." Darryl also had the tendency to get real comfy about the home space. I was working from home at the time and he took to knocking on the door asking for water or coffee. Then he took to coming on inside to drink his beverage. We drew the line when he started letting himself in. I would come downstairs in the morning and Brother Darryl would be posted up with my coffee and BougieMom's newspaper. Talking about, "What's for breakfast?" No. Sir. Hell. No.

I was still seeing Gene then. Gene gave Darryl the black man "back the eff up" side-eye on the regular. Things came to a head on the first day of our move. I'm all for hiring movers but I like to take over my clothes, shoes, jewelry and electronics myself. Gene had come into town to assist. Just so happened that Brother Darryl was over tightening up the hedges and decided to get his volunteer on. The next four hours BougieMom and I watched in amazement (and some trepidation) as the two of them basically peed circles around each other.

"If that's too heavy for you, bruh, you can just set it down and I'll scoop it up for ya."
"Bruh, there's nothing I'd set down that you could even remotely begin to handle."

"You move any slower there homey and we'll both still be here at midnight."
"Best believe only one of us will still be here come nightfall, homeboy."

And on it went. Whelp! What was the point? Darryl's crazy azz knew he was married and never getting next to any of this. And Gene knew I wasn't looking twice at Darryl. But as he said, "It was the principal of the thing." Oh Damn.

Fast forward to this past weekend. I'm sharing this story because even 3N had to laugh at his damn self. Middle of the night, 3N is on da twitter talking randomly as he is known to do. Out of the blue, a dude from BnB tweets him to say that he figured out that 3N is the person I'm seeing. Behold the tweet:

I just figured this out. No disrespect but don't eff it up.

3N comes back with: Ain't this some shit. No worries, bruh. I got this.

Other dude comes round again: Good for you if you do. Just know that if you don't... nuff said

3N gets all alpha male: Line starts behind me. Be prepared to wait. A. Long. Time.

Then Riley (who was up at 3am est for some reason!) started throwing shots at the other dude, BaileyQC got in the mix behind 3N, a few other bougienistas weighed in and an entire round robin of shiggity went forth. Other dude started DM'ing 3N and by the time I got up the next morning I was faced with 6 feet 2 inches of salty ninja. What I do?!

First of all... what in the entire hell? Why was other dude coming at 3N sideways in the first place? Secondly, 3N.... bless his heart. He's new to Twitter and the blogosphere but first rule of stopping ratchetassness in its tracks:  do. not. engage. MUTE and BLOCK are your friends... use them!

Okay, I will admit to a time or two giving a chick the "he's taken, no trespassing" look but that's only been in the case of egregious claim-jumping attempts (otherwise known as habitual line-stepping). So I have to ask the question... why do men do this? Is this an alpha male thing? Do women territory mark with this same fervency as well? Ladies, have you experienced this? Men, have you done it? Do tell...

Totally an alpha male thing. I suppose they feel like they have to protect what is theirs.

Super side-eye at the dude who came at 3N crazy on Twitter - it was SO UNNECESSARY & he only did it to be messy. I got $5 that says messy dude had an opportunity & never took it & now he wants to be a hater now that you & 3N have a good thing.

MollyAnn64 said...

Being nosy, I had to go see if the instigator was who I thought it was. Yep, I was right. It makes me wonder how many relationships have been ruined by the various forms of social networking. Don't go there 3N. Do as the lady says and use the block button or whatever it is called.

I know about the territory marking. It makes me think of this picture I once saw of two rams with their horns locked trying to push each other. As long as it doesn't come to fists or worse, I think it is best just to give an exaggerated *sigh* and let it go.  If the man is becoming irrationally jealous, then it is a cause for conversation because at some point it becomes a trust issue.

Nikki said...

Definitely an alpha male thing. 3N DO NOT ENGAGE, lol.

I need to move to Dallas the men here are uh..... whatever....sigh.

CaliSlim said...

Aww... Billy Dee Ninja really likes you. Go head girl, you know you're rolling your eyes while secretly smiling on the inside. LOL

derek love said...

Sometimes it is the principle of the thing. Whether you are looking at the balloons or not, we have to let the other clowns know not to even try.

michaeldavis said...

Having been up at said day and time and on the 'Twitters' it was VERY hard for me not to lick a shot in said hater's direction. But Riley and crew had it covered.  We like our Michele, and like some younger brothers we feel the need to have your back.  Sorry!  (even if dude had it coming)

My girlfriend has a lot of friends and I find myself biting my tongue when they comment on her FB pics, etc. (seriously, dude, are you REALLY trying to holla at somebody off of a picture?).  I really don't have to mark territory, my girl can usually handle it. But if a dude gets too far out of pocket I reserve the right to check him.

Man's World said...

It's in some men's nature to habitually line step and it's in other men's nature to guard the line. It is what it is. That is all. Consider it a compliment and keep it moving, ma.

maureen palmer said...

I happen to be online around that time and thought it was just a joke btwn them. Like Oprah said  they do not make any more land. 3N is putting a fence around his prime piece of land.

David Parrish, Jr.(Inkognegro) said...

*takes his Y chromosome  and Leaves this post lest it get any ideas* 

Yall Dudes EMBARRASS ME sometimes. 

Sweet N Tart said...

There's territory marking and then there's jealous crazy "she's mine don't even look at her" shiggity. I've seen both. Bless their hearts.

CaliGirlED said...

I got $20 on it that he swung and missed. Went back to the batting cages to practice and then came back to find that a heavy hitter had stepped up to the plate and hit it out the ball park! Did I say $20? Make it $100!!!

CaliGirlED said...

Well I dont' know what went on in the DM's, but I think 3N handled himself well, in public. "Line starts behind me. Be prepared to wait. A. Long. Time." After this other dude should have just sat his ass down somewhere with nothing else to say. And if I may quote my damn self, " He swung and missed. Went back to the batting cages to practice and
then came back to find that a heavy hitter had stepped up to the plate
and hit it out the ball park!"...And yes BougieLand had 3N's back! I was late to the party and  I hate that I missed out.

As for Darryl's and Gene's pissing contest, bwhahahahahaha!!! That's some funny ish! SMDH...I don't think I've ever witnessed this personally, pertaining to me (at least not that what's left of my memory serves me). But I am a firm believer of you check her and I'll check him. Don't let anyone disrespect me and I won't let anyone disrespect you. Until they do, then it is what it is.

Chele we know you would have handled it, but you were fast asleep dreaming up the next chapter in your book. ;-)

BB Waite said...

Look here, Mr. Waite and I have been together since Jesus met Judas and he still does it. We were sitting in a booth in a restaurant the other day and I noticed that he kept moving closer, put his arm around me, dropped his voice so I had to lean in to hear him. Finally, I noticed a gentleman across the restaurant eyeballing blatantly. I had not even noticed him looking but Mr. Waite had. I just laughed, what can you do? Boys will be boys (even at 50 years of age)!

Cha Keziah said...

As annoying as territory marking can be, if you agree to be the territory then shrug, smile, and move on. I figure as long as what's good for the goose is good for the gander, then no bigs. But if S.No.B female comes along and is playing games and the sir has an issue with me doing the same territory marking... we may have an issue.

Cha Keziah said...

I DEFINITELY need to become an active and not passive participant in Bougieland on the Twitter. Y'all have wayyy too much fun LOL. 

William Martin said...

Mr. Waite bring those old school pimp moves back.

Think P. Smart said...

They can't help it.  They start to engage and don't even realize it.  Though pissing on Twitter is kinda a bish move, IMO.  It's fake Alpha-male.

blackprofessor said...

Dude was wrong for coming at 3N but 3N should have let it pass.  See it for what it is – hate and keep it moving!  I detest pissing contests because one doesn’t know the mental stability of the other pisser and some ninjas are crazy! Growing up in Chicago, I saw too many pissing contests descend into fights, stabbings, shootings and all of that. 
Do I mark territory by engaging in pissing contests? Heck no! I am like my man Chris from the Wire – “If you with me, you with me.”

Brneyed1 said...

Chele, you lead THE MOST interesting life, I tell you!

I think that territory-marking thing is just hard-wired into that Y chromosome.  I've been with my sweetie for five years and can always tell when someone is eyeballing me: he gets extra bass in his voice and his mega-broad shoulders square back.  Whomever's lookin' needs to just study something else.  

William Martin said...

1) Darryl needed to be checked. You fine Southern ladies were too polite to do it. Gene had to step in and handle it. 
2) Other dude (we aren't naming names, huh?) was liberally coated in thick sticky haterade. Someone had to back him off and hose him down.
*fist bump to 3N*
It's not that you couldn't have handled it yourself, it's that sometimes a man has to do what a man has to do.

Natasha Hunter said...

I said it when you first told us about 3N, I like his style.

He didn't get brolic with him but he let dude know. That's what he supposed to do.

Other dude is just stupid as hell. He didn't even have a strong azz line, LOL... "Good for you if you do.." "Nuff said"  LOL Boo! Hiss!  GTFreekOH!!

Do I territory mark? LOL... not really.  You can't stop these heaux, and the more concerned you appear the harder some of them try, but my dude (when I have one) already knows... he don't want no trouble. 

Mr. Skyywalker said...

This is it right here. Nuff said.

Jason P said...

^^^What he said.

Grace said...

Falls off chair at We don't want a pony ride when we've already got a stallion... ya dig?
YES!!!

ASmith said...

Women do this stuff too.  You're at the grocery store, looking at the various meats, trying to decide if you want to pick up a chicken or some ground turkey when this fine man walks up and says he likes the flank steak in this particular store.  You can't even suck in a breath good to say anything before his girlfriend/boo/wife/side woman/somebody he's seeing walks up, places her hand ever so purposefully on his chest, giggles while giving YOU the side-eye and asks "who's your little friend, Jerry?" ::nods:: this happens.

That being said, men do three most on it.  Is this something that happens frequently enough?  Men stealing women, that is, that men go balls to the wall on it?  I've just determined that like most other things men do that I don't get, it has to do with their masculinity.

Andrea M said...

I have definitely seen women do all but tattoo MINE on a ninja's forehead when no one (NO ONE) was checking for him. But yes, men take the whole cake and half the bakery with this. I've seen more than one flare up that begun with "Who are you looking at?" from one man thinking another was eyeballing his woman. Stop the madness.

Just_A_Thought1218 said...

Definitely experienced the territory marking, and used to do my fair share. I think it's hardwired into men's makeup.

Eh, I'm not one for twitter fights so I cosign the do not engage advice. One comment to put the fool in their place & then block/delete.

michaeldavis said...

kudos for using the word brolic. Haven't heard that one used in a while by anyone other than me.

Right?!! Chele kills it everytime!...I remember this one, "I'm not the girl who keeps eating when she's already full."

To all the men folk Chele is full and riding her stallion! LMAO

thinklikeRiley said...

Same way chicks gotta "heaux-dar" that alerts then when a rampant-azz heaux is making moves on dey ninja, we got "out-of-pocket-ninja-dar" we just know who needs to have dey azz put in check. Yeah I went in. I ain't seen that level of bitchassed parched-ass haterade in years. 
Dude mad cuz he ain't HE. Sucks to be you. Old swing -and-a-miss mofo.

OneChele said...

Um. Pause.

J B said...

Apologies if this is a repeat, but yes, women do it too.
 
Watching the USC/Texas game at a restaurant bar, Nice Tall dude and I were the only chocolate in the place.  We happened to be standing next to each other whenever USC scored, and high fives would ensue.
 
I took a bathroom break, where I witness who I can describe to my friends only as a drill sergeant, barking out orders at two little kids as she helped them pee:
 
"Stand up."
"Come over here."
"Don't touch that."
"Wash your hands."
"Use the soap."
"Don't touch the floor."
 
At one point, USC falls behind.  When we lead again, I go look for high five dude, find him, high five him, go back to my table of friends.  Now, I'd been indulging in double cadillac margaritas, and my focus was my friends and the game.  So I didn't notice the pissed off woman standing behind me threatening to kick my ass, and getting even more pissed off because I'm paying her no mind.
 
Yes, it was the drill sergeant.  Didn't notice her at all when I high fived the dude.  But she noticed, and she in her 51 years was ready to throw down cuz I dared touch his hand.  I didn't know a drive by high five meant I wanted to do someone, ma'am.
 
When I finally did notice her, I thought she recognized me from the bathroom (blame the tequila).  Still didn't realize she was mad AT ME.  Fortunately, my best friend realized what was happening and calmed her down.  Funniest part of all:  she's a drill sergeant/gunny for the Army.

Angel Blanca said...

I saw the initial exchange. I thought 3N handled himself masterfully given the situation. Even better, much that could have happened publicly, didn't.

Of course it could have been a block and mute, but 3N was likely thinking beyond just this one dude, who was obviously feeling himself just a bit, and serving notice to BougieLand inhabitants: I'm a gentleman, but don't try me; I'm not the one.

It's going to happen, this pissing contest, because that's the nature of humans who suspect some may be encroaching upon some valued part of life/identity. It's an evolutionary response. Imagine if the roles had been reversed or if 3N had said nothing...all kinds of shenanigans.

Brandon St.Randy said...

"Here's the thing about 90% of the women I know and the woman I am. When I decide that I am "with" a guy, I'm with him."

Erronious. While not a majority, a surprising number of relationships/dating situations/cut buddies/affairs begin while the woman is already in a relationship with someone else. I've both protected the line and crossed it. And women in general tend to feel secure and cared for when their dude marks his territory. So some of it is as much for your benefit as it is for ours.

CaliGirlED said...

Chele!!! I was not saying it like that! LOL...But I guess it does read that way.....*goes and sits in the corner* "I really wasn't being grown, I promise" :-((

E Morris said...

I feel the same way after this

Brneyed1 said...

Well damn... *no more words*

OneChele said...

Well, that's why I said 90% of the women I not 90% of women in general ;-)

OneChele said...

"heaux-dar" <~~ Done.

OneChele said...

Ummm. Hmmm.

Cherelle D. Mattox said...

I saw this thing transpire on Twitterdom and I thought 3N handled well. I also dont think it is an alpha male thing. I think it's a human thing. When a person (male or female) finds a good thing and somebody comes strolling by straight hating and threatening instead of congratulating, something needs to be said. Yes 3N could have muted and blocked but when you dealing with folk whose elevator dont go all the way to the top you need to establish boundaries ASAP. I know one thing I know ole dude won't come 'round these parts again.

Rob said...

This BougieTale and especially this phrase>>> in the case of egregious claim-jumping attempts (otherwise known as habitual line-stepping is the complete and entire reason I hang around BougieLand. I mean who else makes you laugh, nod your head, empathize, sympathize and start a hallelujah chorus all in the same post?!

cocoaeyecandy said...

I don't even know why I was up the other night when this went down. My mouth fell open. And now you know I'm dying to know what was in those DMs.

FreeBlackMan said...

In my opinion grown-azz women are just as easily distracted as young azz women. That's one of the reason ninjas act out.

ConvertingMe said...

I am related to enough menfolk to populate a few small states alone and as one of my shotgun toting uncles will say "Mines is mines." 

No matter what education level or socioeconomic status a man finds himself in  or as one of my nine uncles will say "no matter how smart/dumb or how rich/poor, a man can not afford to be seen as weak. He has to be prepared to defend his territory." Both men and women use the same categories to "defend". Defense  of territory starts off non verbal (dirty looks, side-eye, hand grabbing), then verbal and then physical.Men are the most territorial but that can derive from hunter gather instincts still embedded in DNA. 

CaliGirlED said...

I was just saying that you are happy. *turns and faces the wall* :'-((

CaliGirlED said...

We know you have your boy's back, but Riley was ALL OVER that ish! No need for yall to double dog jump him! LOL...Just wish more bougienistas could have gotten his a$$ so he would have really felt simple!

CaliGirlED said...

Yeah me thinks he missed that part! And seeing how he probably does not know said 90%, how can he say "erroneous"? Sir please check your spelling when you're trying to "correctify" in BougieLand unless you're purposely using a word incorrectly.

(Yeah I quoted a pimp from the Jerry Springer show back in the day. "He said correctify me if I'm wrong!" I died 1,000 deaths that day!!!)

Damn I had to get the ugly face on that one! LeOuch

I suspect he's lurking under another name. Chele did say she's blocked him before. So sad.

Now that I know who's involved....I think you're right, Cali.....

You...I can't even! Erronious...had to look this up.  Correctify, sadly is becoming a word, leave it to the pimps to change language.

Brenda Kay said...

The more you said, CalifGirl, the worse it got.  *On the floor in mad hysterical laughter*

Violet Rose said...

Well where have I been? I missed all of this. And it just took me an hour to go back through all the BnB twitter timelines to figure this out. That ain't right! LMAO but that ain't right.

Child, you made me spray my monitor with tea!  Tried to take another sip and started choking when I re-read "Chele is full and riding her stallion"!  You a mess!  :)

CaliGirlED said...

Ssshhh!!! Stop laughing, I'm trying to get out of the corner!

Steve said...

1/2 half of this story is completely told out of context but whatever it takes to keep your readers reading I guess. I think someone thinks a little highly of herself. Don't worry, we'll still read when this relationship crashes and burns too. 

thinklikeRiley said...

Oh hell naw sir. Like I done told ya the other night, hate does NOT become you. Ain't nobody even said your name but you had come on here all grimy with it? Go SIT the ENTIRE F**K DOWN.

I Am Me said...

Aw, you jelly, huh?

CaliGirlED said...

But you said a couple of months back, and I quote, "*clears throat* Who skipped in line?" ...Clueless!!!

Then you said, "No disrespect but don't eff it up."

You kept talking and said, "Good for you if you do. Just know that if you don't... nuff said"

That's enough right there!!! Anyone else with negativity is keeping it to themselves, but noooo You Wanna Be Startin Something! Now you claim "out of context"....Ok, woo woo woo...

Your girl "C" said...

Ooooh ... babe ... you should've stayed silent on this.  Best to retreat.  Insulting Chele and throwing negative karma is so uncool.  

Dr. Peppa said...

Seem like every few months some dude get his azz drop kicked straight the hell up outta BougieLand.  

MeetCharlieL said...

All you had to do what STFU and GTFA (Go the Eff Away). But no. Now you're THAT DUDE. Who couldn't have what he wanted and acted an ass. GTFU (Grow the Eff Up). What was an amusing anecdote is now a sad reflection on your immaturity and ignorance. 

This is BOUGIELAND, how you coming in here pissing on the Contessa of Bouge?

Leon X said...

You know what guys? I learned something today. A hit dog will holler.

But...she didn't say your name. And those of us too lazy to check twitter timelines (raises hand) wouldn't have known it was you...but for this comment. Sigh. Sir. Just... Sigh.

OneChele said...

Okay, this cracked me up.

Sarah said...

Take a deep breath and let it go, Steve. You know that saying carpenters have about measure twice and cut once. Sometimes we have to do that with other things. Walk away for a while before responding or sleep on it or go for a run.

Sarah said...

I don't know what to say. I guess this is one of the hazards of living your life in the some what public eye. I can't say I would want to. It's hard enough just dealing with the drama of the here and now right in front of you without all the extra.

Bethany Showell said...

Oh.  Well.  You done did it now.  *smh*

I'm really not sure what y'all expected of someone that created a Twitter account for the sole purpose of following Chele and tweeting her posts daily, but whatevs.  I told Her Purpleness ages ago to be on the look out for this one. :::taking my "told ya so" tail to the corner with a bag of kettlecorn and a Pepsi::::

note how we're thinking the same thing SMH

Ooh. Ouch. It hurts, doesn't it?

He just couldn't let it go... Pookie put down the pipe...LOL 


I'm in disbelief.

blackprofessor said...

Chele, you have my sympathy for the small amount of time you spent dealing with this pitiful and pathetic man who has busted in here trying to make you look bad when he could have walked away with some ounce of dignity.   

mojitochica said...

Somebody better screen cap that convo before Steve deletes his Twitter account!

sol_dier said...

This is just uncouth and incredibly childish.

Did you pat yourself on the back for this? Is your genitalia so incredibly small that this is how you need to make yourself feel bigger and better.
How could you be so devoid of dignity, that you would stoop to this.

Grow up. This is truly pathetic.

sol_dier said...

Ms Chele, 
this guy sounds like 'if I can't have you, no one else will material' Please have your 'popo' friends look into him. 

He is a walking certified bitter dude. HE sounds wacko.

maureen palmer said...

Wow, this was not necessary.

Brenda Kay said...

Really Steve? Really? 

You got your narrow, immature, rank butt handed to you on Twitter and now you want to show up here and continue the ignorance? 

Just do yourself a big favor and move on someplace else. Your reputation is in tatters, what tiny amount of sympathy some folks may have had for you, is well and truly gone. So thanks for entertaining us, Steve. But now the grown folks want to talk amongst themselves, so ~
Good-bye Boy!

Ewwww, girl stop!  Dying from laughter!

But I notice your twitter and facebook accounts are gone.
Where did you go, Steve?
Why you running?
BWAHAHA!

Natasha Hunter said...

too high to get over (yeah, yeah) too low to get under (yeah, yeah)...

datdudeincali said...

Anyway, before Steve dropped in, I was going to say that most guys will fall back if you give them the "don't start none, won't be none" look, tweet, whatever. But some nuccas gotta learn the hard way.

Natasha Hunter said...

Damn, I shoulda took this bet! LOL

rozb said...

I pretty much just stayed on the sidelines watching this whole post today, getting some entertainment while I could, but this is just...extra. Steve - you have put yourself out there and now you are getting salty because you got your pee-pee slammed in the car door. Dude, you need therapy and Jesus - and not necessarily in that order.

Put down the Cheetos and Pepsi, open the blinds to let some light in, take a shower, and go outside. Use the fresh air to help yourself find some clarity. And stop by 7-11 to pick up some Five gum to help get rid of the bitter taste of hater and humiliation you must have from chewing on it for so long.

He might be at home sitting in the chair by the lamp with the bare bulb, turning it on and off over and over again, still wearing the stained sweatpants and wife-beater he had on when he got his A handed to him on Twitter. Sad, really. I do believe that neither Chele or 3N is worried about this salty, crunchy nut.

Like the guy who writes a bank holdup note on the back of his account deposit slip, then wonders how they caught him so fast.

rozb said...

He's sitting around crying with snot bubbles coming out of his nostrils and everything! He probably even has that hiccup cry going on. SMH!

What in the tarnation is going on in here!  I saw Billy Dee Stedman's (aka 3N) exchange with dude and thought he handled things well.  I had no idea it had gone private though ... that's some ish.    Both genders mark territory when an intruder is sensed.  I think with "most" women it starts out as a little growl (i.e. a casual hand on the arm or thigh), then escalates from there.   I trust (maybe mistakenly at times) for my guy to handle mess with other women and I try to do the same as far as men when it's obvious.  I have to admit my ratchedassness radar is off so where I think we just discussing paint, random dude is trying to make a move.  The men I've been with know I'm liable to strike up a conversation with anyone about anything, so they know when a "growl" is necessary and move in.  Doesn't bother me as I know my blind spot LOL.   But the dude that came at Billy Dee Stedman was just wrong.  And on Twitter?  Seriously?   Block.Mute.Keep.It.Movin.  Repeat.

So I guess it's up to me to ask the BnB Question? Yo, what part of the game is THIS?

Awesome post today, Chele! I got in some great entertainment - wish I coulda got in on the festivities earlier, but asthma had me down for a bit.

I was reading the post, getting my chuckle on and then dove into the comments from the bottom up when all of a sudden - WTF?! Kinda puts the exclamation point on 3N's statement, huh. Now that Steve has outed himself (total bitch move) I can totally cosign 3N's point.

Maureen thanks for posting this!  This is a great illustration of the topic.  No, that pic was not doctored.  It was on the IMF Flicker and New York magazine has it and another where PBO was in between DSK and Michelle ensuring DSK remained at arm's length.  http://nymag.com/daily/intel/2011/05/dominique_strauss_kahn_with_wo.html#photo=9x00003

I think this pic is illustrative that jealousy is an innate human trait; if an eminently intelligent and mature (emotionally and intellectually) man like POTUS can still guard and mark his territory after 17 years of marriage, there's something innate about guarding what you hold dear in a way that seems juvenile to modern sensibilities, but isn't.  DSK and Berlusconi are rapists and perverts and I think Sarkozy told POTUS about them.     

I especially love this pic because his face just says, "You nasty.  I don't know where those hands have been, so you not touching Michelle." And Michelle's face is like "Really, Barack?  We're doing this jealousy thing after 20 years together?  He's not going to hurt me here."  You also have to remember the context of this meeting as well.  Before POTUS & FLOTUS greeted people, Michelle was whispering to Barack and basically flirting; so, this reaction on the president's part really wasn't really surprising.

Kicking back with an evening glass of wine and my iPad. Let me get a little evening bouge on. Ha-ha, he-he, that Chele sure lives a life. Scans comments - *sound of brakes screeching* No he DIDN'T.
Boy boo. I'm not ashamed to say I remember when Steve got banned THE LAST TIME for line stepping. Women like to be admired, not stalked youngster. Come back when you grow up. Or not at all.
I mean damn boy, if Riley can straighten up and fly right...

I have no idea why men do this, but it's not an alpha thing.  My beta hubby can get territorial at times, and it's hilarious because like BB Waite chances are I haven't noticed the dude checking me out lol.  I must admit though small doses of territorialism can be hot!

blackprofessor said...

Ooh, don't kick me out! In my haste, I hit like instead of reply but see my reply below.

tiffanyinhouston said...

Ya'll is BUCKWILD up in here today!!

Steve has been thirsty since day one.

So when I saw the exchange on the Twitters, it was #awkward but not surprising. Mama told me that I don't want nobody who don't want me and evidently Steve, you weren't wanted. Playing yourself on these here internets however, is not the business.

There's a little thing called pride. Get you some.

CaliGirlED said...

I asked Ms. Chele if I could come out, but she didn't answer. As luck would have it Steve was showing his a$$ at the time, thereby causing a distraction, so I escaped. LOL

CaliGirlED said...

I knew he was here, damn sure didn't expect him to try to make a "come back"! GTFOH

OneChele said...

It do seem like that, don't it? LMAO!!!!

CaliGirlED said...

DAMN!!!

"Anyway, before Steve dropped in, I was going to say..." DEAD!!!

JojoRaze said...

Riley was protecting Chele like she's his sister.  And I remember when Riley was line-stepper in chief...Eiley has evolved; he's still plain as day, but evolved. 

Um, Steve, I didn't even check the Twitters and all, so I didn't know it was you, but you should have just not said anything.  Chele called out another B-n-b er one time for stepping to her irl as if he knew her; and he just stopped coming to the blog for a minute; then came back .  You should do that; you played yourself like Sega.

This is everything: "Dancing Dandelions you are 36 ways to wrong on a one-way street."

Joycelyn Curry said...

Imagine my shock after returning to bougieland post workout to discover the most blantant display of bitchassness since Kobe tried to bring down Shaq.  Lawd Steve, you just couldn't let it go! I had no idea who you were until you tried to throw shade towards a woman you were so obviously sweating.  Games such as these are for children so perhaps you should focus your wooing efforts on them until you can grow up a bit more.  Such violation of man laws is an abomination and you should feel more than hurt pride, you should feel shame.

Gotdamn, I miss twitter for a few days and the fun stuff pops off, this is some damn mess.  I too have given the line jumper the side-eyes from hell, but have never gone as far as to mark, I figure if you that damn bad, and my man is that weak to get snapped up by your game, you might as well have him. 

 I always enjoy the new dude vs. old dude pissing game, watching them attempt to outdo each other on the "who knows her best" is always fun O_o NOT (ok maybe just a little, before feelings get hurt and I get stuck with a angry current S/Os)

Now that the Library of Congress has the entire throw-down on Twitter, from 3N's classy remarks to *none. of. Steve's. damn. business.* through Riley's body shots, every woman on the planet will know that Steve is 'that guy'.  Good luck with that ratchet attitude.  Siberia's a cold and lonely place.  Pack your thermals.

I think we are just that competitive.
We can't have any and everyone coming at us all sideways testing our level of testosterone.
Just goes back to a man being a man, if he is one in the first place. (shots fired)
There will be no manhood testing in front of our woman or our family. Ever.
