AceShowbiz - Fantasia Barrino had a lot of topics to be discussed when she stopped by "The Breakfast Club" on Monday morning, September 16, and one had successfully gained people's interest. During her appearance on the radio show, the "American Idol" alum urged women to stop trying to be the leader in a relationship and let their men lead them.
Pointing out that the reason why a lot of women couldn't find their right men, Fantasia said, "We need more men to stand up and lead the way. Most women are trying to be the leader, that's why they can't find a man." The singer then stressed that women couldn't be king in the house and told them to "fall back and be the queen and let your man lead the way."
This prompted one of the hosts to ask whether or not they could be equal, to which Fantasia replied, "Of course, because at the end of the day I'm the neck and my man is the head. So he can't make any moves when I'm his wife. You know what I mean? We all work together."
Her interview successfully sparked debate among social media users, with some agreeing with what Fantasia said. Meanwhile, some others weren't buying it. "I agree it's a time to be led and a time to take the lead and it's harder for us women who have been independent our whole lives and raised by women that have been the same!" one supporter said. "But if god blesses you with a KING who leads you yes submit and allow him to lead you."
Referring to Fantasia's church background, one said, "This was and still is heavily taught. I don't mind being submissive to the RIGHT MAN. I Agree with her 100% sis but until mr.right comes along I'm the hbic." One other agreed and noted, "Trying to be the kind of the house leads to a man feeling less of a man. It's OK to be strong and independent but let that man still be A MAN!!!" One person simply applauded her for "speaking pure facts."
In the opposite side, there were some who sounded off about Fantasia's remarks because they believed all men "don't have the common sense God gave a billy goat." Someone else stressed, "Every single relationship is supposed to be unique. I don't like when people give out blanket sexist advice." One other sarcastically asked, "Are we still talking about submitting to another human being? Sad."
On the other hand, an individual offered up a lengthy response to Fantasia's "bulls**t" comment. The user said, "There ain't a damn thing about a male that makes him a good leader simply due to his maleness. Why does a woman being strong, independent and capable mean she's trying to be a man? Why must women be on their knees so men can feel strong? It's quite pathetic. To see so many women agreeing to this is disheartening. Im not a dog therefore I don't need to be led."
