In the age of #MeToo and #TimesUp, my eyes have opened to sexism in the media, and one such realization lies in the fact that men are often way more dramatic and messy than women. Such is the case with Future, who took aim at Seattle Seahawks player and husband of Ciara (his baby mamma), Russell Wilson, during a Beats1 interview radio interview saying:
[Wilson] do exactly what she tell him to do… He not tellin’ her, ‘Chill out with that on the internet. Don’t even talk to him. I’m your husband! You better not even bring Future’s name up!’ If that was me, she couldn’t even bring his name up. She know that. She couldn’t even bring her exes’ names up.
It’s interesting that Future recently said the hardest part of monogamy is a woman’s jealousy when his own statement about Ciara confirmed his hypocrisy. Any man that imposes parameters on what his wife/girlfriend can and cannot say is inherently possessive and jealous. That being said, Ciara and Wilson’s response seems even less mature. Posting a picture of Future’s son on social media is an innate jab wrapped in a pretty bow. If Future has inherent issues with his access/role in his son’s life, keep it private. In fact, keep the entire thing private.
