I am sure that by now, everybody has heard about Kanye West’s on stage interruption saga last weekend when he interrupted Taylor Swift’s award acceptance speech to say how he thought that Taylor Swift’s video was better. Granted, it was said he had been drinking, but still, what he did ruined his stance as a man, and he lost respect from everybody.
There are several lessons one can learn from this incident.
1) Think before you act. As was said so well in the Godfather movie, “Do not hate anybody. Anger clouds the mind”. You can lose a woman with just one sentence.
2) If you think of doing something to show that you are strong, think again, lest your actions might be perceived as that a bully. Nobody likes bullies, especially ones that bully “innocent young girls”, like Taylor Swift is perceived to be.
3) Women see things different than men do. There is a universal sisterhood among women, and women will perceive harm done to one woman as harm done to all women in the world. Women will much more easily put themselves in another woman’s shoes and ask themselves, what if this happened to me, what would I do?
