Gleaner Wrong To Feature Beenie Man’s Babymama
Wow. This person is setting us all the way back to the 19oos. While I strongly believed in a two family household, consist of a man and a woman joined together in matrimony, that’s not always the case for many women and men. There are many women in Jamaica from a different socioeconomic background who have children out of wedlock. Some we are well aware of and some we don’t. The anger in the Authors article seems to allude that women, such as Ms Tomlinson, who is smart, articulate, intelligent and successful, should not be caught up in been a “baby mama”. That baby mama is reserved for the uneducated ghetto and country folks. Many successful Jamaicans, past and present were themselves illegitimate and some “bastards”. I mean, this has been going on forever. Remember the Beauty Queen, Cindy Breakspear? To the Author- Sir/Mam. Let us not forget.
THE EDITOR, Sir:
The Gleaner is by far the most respected newspaper in the region. But like other publications, it has to focus on celebrities in order to gain mass appeal.
However, in Monday’s edition, dated July 9, 2018, the paper made a huge error. There was a feature on TV personality Krystal Tomlinson and her relationship with entertainer Beenie Man.
There was no reason for this illustrious publication to venerate Ms Tomlinson’s illegitimate pregnancy and her courtship with an older man who has several illegitimate children of his own.
The Gleaner has a role to play in encouraging our young women to become professional citizens with high moral character. Yet the profile on Ms Tomlinson sends a contrary message. In a country with such serious social problems, it is really asinine to be lauding the pregnancy of an unmarried woman.
Sensible people expect The Gleaner to know better and do what is right.
