    r pimps back in?

    so i'm watching comic view the other nite (doh ask) and i c the host introduce "some real live pimps in the house, give it up for them ya'll". they get an outstanding ovation.

    pimps r everywhere from movies, videos, u name it. plenty folks these dayz r boasting and self proclaiming to be a pimp.

    am i the only 1 who see's something wrong here? had 2 research xactly what a pimp does and found it bizarre most ppl give em props like dat. guess times r changing.

    i'm not knockin wa u saying but pimping will neva die... b/c dere so many(esp. down south n midwest) "pimps" it's really a profession for those indviduals who r pioneers... i may be taking a risk by saying this
    pimping will continue as long as dere is a horny man or horny woman who sees nuttin wrong wit paying for sex.

    also insecure gals who don't have enough self respect fa demselves will always want to make a buck and by doing so dey will use dey body to do so. besides most women who have pimps look up to dey pimps as a farther figure type. (sad)


    dere is alot of money made in dat profession....

    i understand what u'r saying in that pimping will never die as long as folks r horny and so on.......no chance in saying that cuz it does hold truth.

    my concern was 4 the glorification of ppl applauding or giving thumbs up and pats on the back 4 being a pimp. almost along the borders of clapping or patting on the back drug dealers, mob associates, crime figures and so on.......

    Money talks and bullsh!t walks.. Its all relative. You have those big wigs in corporations paying like $5000+ dollars to have an escort for the night. I mean what is the real difference..

    qstream - i paid u yesterday! stop robbing me blind. :)

    pjk - dat is a sick comparison man. there r those professional escort services which r considered a legal business in most states. howeva, the pimps in the south or whereva they r 4 dat matter is a much more grimeyer (sp?) and darker side 2 the bizness. i mean again, it is the praise and props these 'pimps' r getting. nowadayz they r more prevalent in society and getting much attention.

    when kids or teens c its ok that adults r in support of them, guess what some of their aspirations may be?

    yall shoulda seen this episode ofo Oprah when they had young prostitutes, some even in their teens.. You shoulda heard the horror stories and the brutal things these pimps did to them to keep them in line... if yall had seen that, yall would get mad at snoop dog and people like that foro glorifying the whole pimp/hoe culture

    Saltyoil: lawd yuh see is ah good thing yuh say that ah had yuh amount written unda Dragon name.

    let get de bullpistle out for he cause ah want mey money.:p

    so sad but tru they does want to be what they think is cool but if they only know de history of such a thing.

    and to think that they had American pimp on BET. that was actually not that bad cause it showed where ah broke pimp does end up.

    believe it or not i have never heard of those mags. good thing. lol. but yeh, they r all over video's, radio, almost everywhere u turn. and now in magazines. i'd probably feel a bit more comfy if a person was an ex-pimp and now uses their time 2 help distraught women or do something more positive and constructive 4 their lives and get praises dat way.

    Nah I dont think they are getting alot of attention at all. People are probably just now realizing that side of the world and it has rather become more newsworthy or prevalent at the time.. I mean pimps are just one aspect of the business. There are russian, chinese, escort services that steel women from abroad and have them working in brothels to pay back their passage to the US... But again if a tree falls in the forest and there is no one there to hear it........

    Its just another form of glorification.. I mean I am sure people hear watch the Sopranos but I dont hear anyone complaining about the moral and ethical issues that relate to mob and organized crime like behavior.. Instead it has becoem a pastime that you sit down with your family and watch on Sundays.. :)

    brownskin: I am agreeing, but what I am saying is that there are much worse out there and 95% of those involved in Pimpish lifestyles chose to be there.
