So after posting yesterdays post I had a conversation with one of my readers who asked me [more or less] do women have swagger?
simple answer: yes
Now – the word swagger to me has masculine implicaitons…like when one looks at the definition of Swagger:
|1.||to walk or strut with a defiant or insolent air.|
This is man…hear him roar!
Guys – listen to the words coming out of my mouth…women love to see a dude carry himself with defiance – have an aura of arrogance…they love it! They eat it up…learn it…live it…execute it…and you my friend can be the next Jay-Z that bags a Beyonce – or the next Biggie that bags a Faith Evans
Yes…we know that Biggie looked like he ran head first into a wall…but again…he pulled Faith Evans…and she had his baby…may haps his swag was on point…
back on point…
You then can’t throw the adjective feminine before swagger – as it would be reminiscent of the phrase feminine odor. Accordingly I define women with swagger with one word…now…this is an original thought…as such…when you steal (as I’m sure you will) I need to be cited accordingly (APA format would suffice):
|1.||rhythmic flow of a sequence of sounds or words|
|2.||(in free verse) a rhythmic pattern that is nonmetrically structured.|
|3.||the beat, rate, or measure of any rhythmic movement|
4. Balanced, rhythmic flow, as of poetry or oratory
or…as said by Wikipedia:
Cadences give phrases a distinctive ending, which can, for example, indicate to the listener whether the piece is to be continued or concluded. An analogy can be made with punctuation, with some weaker cadences acting as commas, indicating a pause or momentary rest, while a stronger cadence will then act as the period, indicating the end of the phrase or musical sentence. Cadences are called “weak” or “strong” the more or less final the sensation they create.
Now tell me that doesn’t sound sexy!!! examine this please:
Cadences are called “weak” or “strong” the more or less final the sensation they create.
Just like how swag can be easily seen in a mans walk…the same can be said with a womans walk. A woman with cadence strong cadence will always walk as if there is a drum line behind her…
If you want to see a woman with cadence in action – go out on a friday night – to a club – lounge – where ever people are dressed and ready for a night out- and stand outside and watch people walk by on the street.
Women with cadence usually have a slight bounce to their walk [that jiggle] – their hips say from side to side. She usually knows she’s being watched…so she’ll look to her left or to her right occasionally – to pretend that she isn’t being noticed…or will go through her purse and get her phone to talk on it. But she knows that eyes are on her…why…because she knows she is the business…and she is ok with it. This woman will do the occasional hair fix – whether its a toss of the hair from the shoulder, a head snap, or a hair pat [for the natural sistahs].
A man with swagger will notice this…and will wait for some simpleton to yell – ay! long hair, red shoes, ay shaw, c cup, jacked teeth…to see her response. You see…a woman with cadence will flat out ignore such tomfoolery, simply roll her eyes, so on – thus solidifying her status of being a woman with cadence. She usually does this without missing a beat. Now…a woman who responds to such tomfoolery will be branded as a bird, and subsequently will be treated as one.
Just so that you know – there are three classifications of birds:
* Pigeons -feminine derivative of scrub
* Ducks – ugly girls
* Chickens – classic jump off material
but I digress…
The jiggle…refers to a womans ability to be self aware of herself, more specific her assets. As such, this woman usually dresses well…with out exposing her assets…as her walk will ensure that her attributes are not only advertised…but noted. This means 2 things:
1) A woman with Cadence is confident in who she is…and what she has.
2) A woman with Cadence dresses as if she is an appetizer – only revealing a small part of her self in order to stimulate ones desire to eat – because the reality of the situation…if you put it all out there for us…you are now a buffet – just another meal laid out on a table – that I and others will help themselves too [cough] jump off [cough]
In essence – as I said earlier…a woman with cadence will walk as if there is a band behind her playing let me clear my throat. This is all rooted in her confidence within herself, and what she has to offer. A woman with zero cadence walks as if the band behind her is playing the flight of the bumble bees. I promise you…cadence will turn a fat girl who is a ham hock away from a heart attack into a fine thick girl.
In summary – Confidence begets Cadence begets sexiness begets wifey – the key to all of this is what: confidence. Nothing says sexy than a woman who is confident within herself! Nikki Giovanni says it best: I’m so hip even my errors are correct <– This epitomizes feminine sexiness
A woman with true cadence has the ability to be alluring. Oh…the woman who can allure – can bag any dude. I swear 4 gawd a woman who can charm and entice with veiled [not overt] seduction can have her pick at any man!
The best way I can describe this…is the soothing piano and the enchanting saxophone in Nina Simone’s song I’ve put a spell on you – in fact…I think this song personifies a womans ability to memorize a man through her cadence. Simone’s abrasive voice is well complimented by the piano, saxophone, and melodic bass guitar in the background…this song is sexy as hell…- you people are smart…you can draw the parallels.
So what have we learned:
Confidence + allure + enchantment = Cadence
Cadence = Sexiness
**It’s interesting to note that the center of loci for a woman with cadence is her hips…where as the center of loci for a dude with swagger is his shoulders – i guess our inner barbarian says:
woman: I can birth you babies
Man: I can drag rocks
