In this week’s edition of Blank Stare News: Ray-J’s “I Hit It First”
On a seemingly blissful Friday, I, like everyone else in my office, patiently waited for 5 o’clock to hit and begin my 48 hours of freedom. But then, straight out of the conclaves of what the f*ck, Ray J releases a blurred photo of Kim Kardashian walking on a sandy beach in a bikini with the words “I Hit It First.”
With a screw-face to boot, I asked my coworkers and editors what prompted such a juvenile act? Did Kim throw shade I wasn’t aware of? Did Kanye and his Yves Saint Laurent-wearing goons step to Brandy’s little brother? The song seemed so unprovoked and random.
But once I put on my thinking snap back, I realized I was more upset at our society’s inability to allow women to make mistakes and move on from them.
Women are held to a much higher standard because it seems society has accepted the notion men will f*ck up. This is a given and to be expected. So women are then the proverbial “designated drivers.” The responsible ones. The ones that cannot make a mistake, and if we do honey chile honey chile!
Although his actions are elementary, douche bag-esque and proof men indeed get their periods too, I could somewhat understand where Ray J was coming from if Kim weren’t doing anything with her life. But that’s not the case.

And those aren’t half the endorsements Kim K is bringing in. Plain and simple, Kim’s a boss, but we don’t necessarily treat her like that.
