It was a year ago this month that I received an invitation from a friend to join Clubhouse, a new social media app that allows people to interact by audio. It allows you to create different rooms discussing any subject that you would like to talk about and you have the option of inviting people to your rooms or you can ramble all by yourself. You can also drop in other folks rooms and listen to conversations, and if you want to join in, just raise your hand and wait to be added to the queue.
It’s a really cool concept because you can have conversations with thousands of people from all over the world with this app and as a sociology major who loves to study the interactions of humanity, I thought this was a wonderful idea but as usual, humans fuck everything up. Clubhouse has a dark side and let me explain why.
I didn’t actually start interacting on Clubhouse until this summer and my God, these fuckers are insane. Rooms that last for days discussing who gets the biggest piece of chicken and weave. Makeup. Submission. And why Black women aren’t shit and deserve absolutely nothing in life but chaos and pain.
There are also rooms on this app that are created by scammers who claim they are “femininity” coaches and are charging $9000 per course, “teaching” broken women with low self esteem on how to find a rich husband. And these so called coaches are predatory women who doing this to their own kind because they aren’ shit. Making money off the insecurities of desperately unhappy women who believe they are nothing without a husband.
And the men who create rooms to complain about frivolous mess but claim they are millionaires. These millionaires have the time to argue with strangers for days at a time but no time to mentor the youth who need all the help and guidance they can get. Never ending arguments about shit that doesn’t matter and never any solutions to the many ills that plague the world. Ain’t worth two dead flies🪰🪰🪰🪰🪰.
And oh Lawd the illiteracy. These folks cannot form a sentence or express themselves in a cohesive manner but really expect someone to listen to their ramblings. My god American culture is headed down a dangerous path when its citizens will listen intently to people who espouse ignorant viewpoints about abortion on an app who don’t know their asses from a hole in the wall or basic biology. But will not listen to the voices of women because women are inferior because the Bible said so.
