According to Fantasia Barrino, the problem that many women are recently having with finding a partner in life could be resolved with a straightforward action — being more submissive and falling back into a more “womanly” behavior.
Fantasia’s advice seemed to be mainly aimed at single women and mothers. Fantasia then went on to explain her stance, pointing out that many women nowadays were trying hard to take on a “manlier” role in their households and even relationships, and this was detrimental to their success in finding a partner.
Fantasia explained that women need to be more humble and submissive in the way they interact with men if they want to get the proper recognition that they are looking for.
She said: “Most women are trying to be the leader. That’s why you can’t find a man. You can’t be the king in the house. Fall back and be the queen and let your man lead the way. You have to find how to submit. You can still be a queen. The queen plays a part. The king needs his queen. There are certain things that he can’t see that we see.”
The American Idol alum’s statements have been met with lots of controversies, with many people calling her out on pushing women in the wrong direction.
Others were more agreeing with her, although it does seem like her opinion has caused a pretty strong divide among commenters in general.
Fantasia was paying close attention to what others were saying about her recent statements and has decided to team up with her husband, Kendall Taylor, and they have addressed the matter in a new video.
Some have even suggested that she does not mean what she said, but was merely using the statement as a means of generating some controversy around herself.
However, that does not seem to be the case, judging by her overall attitude on the situation, and the way she has been expressing her opinion.
One person had this reaction: “I love it!!! What he said was the truth!! You lead by actions, and the woman will submit based on leadership and trust!! You got a good man. ❤️❤️❤️❤️”
Another commenter stated: “Thanks for this. Very motivating. I was giving up on love thinking why should I settle but he just cleared it up for me. You ain’t leading me to no unknown place. When I meet the one worth submitting too, there will be no problems. God bless your union & thanks again for the wisdom from both 💗💗💗.”
This fan revealed: “That was so good, and I completely agree submission isn’t about force it is about trust and knowing that u will be fine and your children will be fine and in marriage, you’re a team u can’t be a team if u can’t work together.”
A fourth social media user claimed: “Yes!!! Praise God. 💯💯👏👏 So many men are only sharing the part where she said to submit to your man. They’re leaving his part out. A lot of men want women to submit to what they want, not what helps both of them grow.”
Was Fantasia able to get out of the controversy?
