Tyrese Says He Is Only Attracted to Women Who Aren’t Loud

Is this offensive or nah?

Attention, ladies: If you want any shot at marrying Tyrese, you better speak softly.

In a bizarre Instagram rant, the actor revealed now he is only attracted to women who aren’t loud or aggressive–two qualities he used to love in the opposite sex. In other words, he wants the opposite of Taraji P. Henson in Baby Boy (2001). Duly noted, sir.

“I use to be attracted to women with HUGE personalities LOUD and AGGRESSIVE and I would always it a wall….” he wrote in the post. “Now I’m in a zone where I am ONLY attracted to women who’s voice is so soft and she has the energy and presence of grace and regal sophistication….. Not subservient REGAL!!! As sexy as my small collection is I never leave home I’m too grown for clubs and turn up every night….. Although I make moves sometimes.”

All white fleet with beige guts…………. I was just asked today what qualities attract me at this point in a women…. I love a woman that's smart, confident, educated, self sufficient, (( available to be as spontaneous as this lifestyle I live.) I use to be attracted to women with HUGE personalities LOUD and AGGRESSIVE and I would always it a wall…. Now I'm in a zone where I am ONLY attracted to women who's voice is so soft and she has the energy and presence of grace and regal sophistication….. Not subservient REGAL!!! As sexy as my small collection is I never leave home I'm too grown for clubs and turn up every night….. Although I make moves sometimes…. I'm on my #GrownManShit heavy……. I can't wait to get home…….. I don't remember the last time I lost sleep over a hater….. This is a life and lifestyle that I've earned… I use to feel bad about being so blessed and allowed people to play me, use me, take advantage of me… Play on my emotions to get shit out of me cause I had more….. That ATM is shut all the way down…… I'm 3,500 flights, a lot of sleepless nights, a lot of stages and political warfare into this life and lifestyle if you want it get off your ass and GO GET IT!!!!!!! Message to my future wife…… Hello!

So, what does this mean exactly? If you read through the typos and excessive punctuation, it looks like Tyrese wants a lady friend who is sophisticated with a soft voice. Is this offensive or nah? We’re not sure. We operate under the belief women can unapologetically be as loud or quiet as they want, and fellas shouldn’t have a problem with it.

But we don’t think Tyrese meant it that way. Plus, it’s possible he didn’t mean anything at all. This post is completely incoherent and features a random photo of cars (???). One second, he’s describing his ideal woman. The next, he’s talking about haters and political warfare. It’s nonsense, so take all of this with a grain of salt.

However, true or not, Tyrese’s post raises an interesting question: Is it OK to say you want a girlfriend who isn’t loud? Let us know.
