I beg your indulgence...

Recommended Posts

All of my sistas here have really done themselves proud in offering explanations about their approaches to interacting with other women - as well as men.  Each testament was flavored with their individual personalities and provided clues to why they are so impressive.  I have concluded that one difference between them and me is that i am more argumentive  and when it comes to engaging with men, i like to question everything they say  just to be contrary even as, on this forum,  i cringed at their written responses that had little regard for being detailed-oriented or proof read, full of disjointed sentences, misspelled, omitted, improperly-used words, and incorrect punctuation,  wondering  if these careless lapses carried over into other areas of their lives and have anything to do with their claims of black male victimization.

Hey does this mean you and Pioneer really aren't gonna hook up? 

I am really not sure whether your parting shot was a lame attempt at humor or if you really think that i actually entertained ideas of "hooking up" with pioneer. 😩 EW.  But, I understand how observers might conclude that making him my whipping boy is motivated by my having secret designs on him. He modestly interprets my "harassment" as an attraction to the "masculine energy" which he imagines he exudes. Sooo untrue. I, myself, always felt that his aura was like a drag, mired in the sticky emanations that seeped from his pompous assertions.  But dream on, pioneer.  As usual, what you decide upon takes on a life on its own and settles into a permanent residence in your warped mentality. Be advised that you have earned a place in my "Obnoxious People Hall of Fame". 

 

I'd also like to clear up what i think others might suspect: that i looked upon this site as my personal domain and that i jealously guarded my status here, considering all other comers a threat, and that i competed with them for Troy's attention. In response, i say:  it's not like this forlorn forum is bristling with activity and broad participation and enjoys widespread recognition.  On a good day, there might be 4 posters here, bickering or exchanging one-liners.  I'm told there is a substantial lurker audience who, for some reason, never make themselves known and are who pioneer plays to, positive that they are in his corner, rooting him on.  Does this sound like a scenario that my life would revolve around, something that would bolster my self-esteem and make my day? Not.  What benefits accrue from Troy's approval?  Sure, he's a great guy but my being a fixture on his discussion board  enhanced or enabled me in no way. My critics got it all wrong.

 

So, yes, Troy, remove the "Cynique" title from this site. Free me from having to see what should be Cynique's Corner instead of "Cyniques' Corner", which is how it incorrectly appears.  i'm pretty much history here. "Connie" has more fun on Facebook, hangin' out with my homies, laughing at memes and arguing with a broad spectrum of strangers, Mark Zuckerberg be damned.   Sure, out of curiosity,  I'll be checking things out here from time to time - if you don't block me. Thanks for everything. We cool. (That goes for you too, Del.)  

 

To my girls, i love you all.  It's been "real".  😙    Buh-Bye!

What's your facebook link? You can private message me if you don't want all eyes to see it here. LOL. Would love to continue reading your words.

I have made an effort to have less typos and be less argumentative. I admire your engagement in conversations , some that I watched from the sidelines. 

Will miss your wit. Although in the past 3-6months it feels as though AALBC discussions are deflating. or perhaps I don't see the point in most arguments/discussions. 

Farewell Connie

Yes a few women have emailed me this sentiment over the years.  I never understood it.  

 

There were two women in this forum that caused me to intervene in all the years you've posted here; one was Sara (who eventually left on her own after I deleted one of her particularly offensive post -- made against Cynique; and the other will remain nameless, but long time posters can probably guess who she is.  In both cases, Cynique actually defended these women! Cynique is unique.  She was always honest and definitely a defender of free speech. 

 

Nothing personal @Cynique, but I won't be going to Facebook to read your writings. @zaji if when you read something interesting by Connie please feel free to embed it in a post here.
