VIDEO: Not About That Life 11

September 15, 20144 Comments


Not About That Life is back and realer than ever. In this installment, I address issues ranging from topless men playing basketball to domestic abuse.

For those wanting more insight on my feelings in the video, let me just say A) There is a dude who always takes his shirt at the gym off B) I am always guarding him. There was no hyperbole in that statement.

As far as my stance on the domestic abuse issue with Ray Rice, the video was shocking, egregious, and disgusting. However, I still do not agree with people who say “A man should never hit a woman.”

Let me be clear, I have never hit a woman and was raised to never do so. I just feel the phrase cheapens the actions of women who abuse men, as well as puts guys into ethical dilemma when defending themselves.

Domestic abuse is not ok regardless of sex. Assault is not ok regardless of sex.  

This is not at all the situation in Ray Rice’s case, however, the sentiment has been echoed throughout social media and I wanted to put my two cents out there.

What do you think of the whole situation?

    I agree with your opinion on the whole man hitting a woman issue. I believe that if a woman is stupid enough to go toe to toe with a man and not expect to get hit back is just crazy. If a woman were to do the same to another woman that other woman will hit you back. So if you do not want to be in a fight (which fucking hurts) don’t go toe to toe.

    Hey Scooter! I haven’t been able to watch any of your videos in a while; but, it’s good to see that you’re still doing what you like to do. Funny, as always! -I won’t ride in a car w/a person who texts & drives.. I will walk! #NotAboutThatLife; & I will not tolerate any forms of ratchet! #NotAboutThatLife #AintNobodyGotTimeForThat lol

    • Hahaha I’m glad you had some time to watch this video LaMia! I am also glad that you do not tolerate any forms of ratchetness as the condition is steadily worsening in our society.

      And I definitely feel you on the texting and driving predicament…like I understand you don’t care about your life…but I’m in the car…soooooo
