I never thought the day would come when there'd be a caste system based on one's genotype. But after listening to someone rant about being dumped after a four year relationship and end the rant with "...and I'm even AA" I knew that day has finally arrived. You know, it was said like "I'm AA, I'm a prize! Why would you give that up?"
In the last few weeks I've found scores of comments online about this genotype issue and dating. This one below sounds similar to the rant above.
"Broke up with my ex 6 months ago not because we don’t love each other or we didn’t get along but just cos his sisters believe am not too much of a career woman and won’t make a good wife even though it took him forever to meet someone like me that is AA for that matter".
Seriously, isn't this the most unreal thing you've read in a while; even though it took him forever to meet someone like me that is AA for that matter. Oma ga oooo!
Ok, but beyond this is something even more worrying, something that seems to be a source of pain and concern to some. Last week I heard a radio presenter say someone had been trying to hook her up with a certain guy. Finally she gave in and agreed to meet with him, the woman's next statement was "before I set up a date, what is your genotype?". The lady said she was pissed off by the question, but her cohost explained that it was a fair and valid question. Apparently if you're AS its best to know these things while you're still ahead, no point in investing time,emotions and money on a failed cause.
I saw a few more comments thatreally opened to my eyes to some realities of being AS.
The below comments are from Bella Naija.
-Dayo: "AS genotype is really a bitch. Am hardly gingered when i meet a new babe nowadays.."
-"@Dayo awwww am AA get in touch .winks…email@example.com……lets see how it goes."
-"@dayo am AA let’s get in touch firstname.lastname@example.org ciao ciao"
(Single and searching male AS TTB readers might want to cast their nets wide and mail these chics. Please o! They sound like they're looking for something serious, so if you're not please leave these ladies alone. Thanks).
Other comments I've seen also bemoan being AS.
"All the men I meet these days are either married or AS. Talk about caught between a rock and a hard place. Oh well…."
"… The other day my friend and i came to the conclusion that AA guys are assholes! Really! Its like they just feel like they can marry anybody so they just act like mumus up and down the place..pardon my aggression!"
"Been AS sucks a lot,u hav 2 ask which ever guy u meet who is interested in u what his genotype is before u even think of dating him,and d guy would be like so naa only marriage this girl they think about.. I hate been AS
"I feel you, sister. I so much hate it! It has happened several times, that i would have started falling in like with the guy only to find out that he is AS. Very painful something"
Oh wow. Do you know your genotype? Please it's very important that you do, if you don't ensure you find out as soon as possible. Has your genotype ever caused you any challenges or does it confer a sense of superiority upon you? Have you lost or gained a relationship (opportunity) because of your genotype? If you really loved someone, would their genotype stop you from taking things further, or has it before? Let's talk.
Lol @ AA guys are assholes. Interesting!
