Commentary: I Have Been Issa. I Have Been Tasha. I Have Fucked My Share of Lawrences

Insecure

Insecure (HBO)

Sunday’s episode of the HBO show Insecure led to a lot of discussion across social media.

I originally spoke about it in my own thread on Twitter.

That Twitter thread led to me writing a piece on The Root sharing my own experiences.

Insecure regularly reminds me of the lessons I am thankful to have learned in my late 20s and early 30s about relationships, sexuality and owning my womanhood. As the second season gets off to a hard and fast start, I am reminded that I have been Issa, I have been Tasha and I have fucked my fair share of Lawrences over the years.

First of all, bitch, (stanza #4)

“friends with benefits”

is code for, “you be faithful”

I’ll do what I want.

I just wrote a column about the miscommunications that occur between me and my man friend. I think it is hilarious, but when he reads it, he will probably be annoyed. He will be annoyed even though I have stated all the things I say in the column to him face to face. He has heard all of this before, but he will still be annoyed, further proving my point that men don’t pay attention to the details.

I’ve said this to you before, honey.
