    Fe Fe Wadood 9 days ago are not is wrong with these ppl. These new millennials will finesse the hell out yall smh. Besides that nonsense..his message was on point. I'm Muslim and everything he said is the truth. A lot of ppl are so mentally frozen they don't understand we "normalized" sins: porn, casual sex with someone you aren't married to. Notice s lot of these celebrities are on drugs and killing themselves because they have no Godly mental capacity.

    Meagan did GOOD!!!! 👌🥰 I have been With my husband for 19 years and it’s been a struggle.... for him. I’m a confident woman who has been committed since day one. But my husband lacked on guidance. We still together and I pray we stay together but dude is so right what he is saying. Too much for me to express into words about me and mines. Blessings to all the men who are strong enough to find themselves and be at peace with their woman and himself ❤️

    I agree with everything he says, including the porn and dating and all but the masturbating part is false. Masturbating is good for you and it is a form of self-regulation. Men who aren't masturbating can develop testicular cancer and women who aren't masturbating suffer from higher rates of anxiety and depression. He knows that this is the case which is why he didn't want to give a solid response, he said "I'm not a psychiatrist" but he has to say it's bad because it goes against the ancient Bible.

  • gfunkin2
    gfunkin2 4 months ago

    I'm with a lot of what Franklin says, but he's also a bit of a fake nice guy. For instance, you should probably not disrespect a woman not because she's someone else's "mother, sister etc..." but simply because she's a human being. There's a strong market of so-called enlightened men revealing the "truth" about men, not primarily for a male audience but for a female one. That's why there's never any discussion of, say, how unforgiving women can be too.

    I’m usually not on the “shut the f*ck up Charlemagne” bandwagon 😒 ...... but please shut the f*ck up Charlemagne. You got LUCKY asf that she stayed that long. 20 YEARS?!! 20 years and you JUST got faithful barely 3 years ago?! Talking about I don’t want to be that man that breaks up his family or hurts and lies his woman. Dude.. you were/are that man. You just got lucky that God blessed you with a woman that was either patient enough or stupid enough to hang on that long. I know I’m only 25 years old but I learned early (not early enough) that my time is way too precious to be wasted on someone that doesn’t value it or me 💁🏾‍♀️

    This interview was great but as a christian man the master he is referring to is JESUS(God in the flesh) and the Dog is sin. We naturally have sinful natures as humans and we lust after things. It is natural to see another woman and start imagining however once he acts on the lust it makes it a sin and a problem. So to not act on the lust the man must know himself in JESUS first and follow GOD's principle on love and learn how to love himself first.God is love. I know he is trying to reach a general audience but it is important for people to know the power of Jesus and knowing yourself through him. Only he can renew man's heart and mind.Now there are people out there who believe they can do it with out God and state that it's common sense but in this case as a christian man like devon I think it is important to understand where his values come from and what we are talking about here
    Amazing interview and sounds like a great book~~~

    This is the second interview I’ve watched with DeVon, and once he talked about pornography, I used “buy now” on Amazon and got his book. He’s a breath of fresh air and a moral leader.

    He is right, men have been inflicted pain on women and it is part of history because women are seen as the ones who should sacrifice everything for love, marriage and babies while they say men are supposed to hang out to work, parties and sacrifice everything for sex.

    This man gives me bad vibes. And I'm not saying he's not speaking the truth cause even a broken clock is right twice a day. But it's something about him that says "controlling"/"manipulative". I know y'all gonna come under my comment with the B.S. but I'm rarely ever wrong about this stuff. And years later ppl be like "You said that".

  • Rob Clark

    Sounds good but women need to take accountability for their actions (opening their legs)/dress (dressing like whores) as well. Men are heavily visual creatures and women are suppose to cover their body's to keep us from becoming weak. You can go into a church today and all that's missing are the strobe lights smh. Ray Charles said that the same folks having pan sexual orgys in the basement of Aretha Franklin's father's church on Saturday were praising Jesus on Sunday. No matter where you go whoredome is rampant. How a women presents herself tells men whether she is pray or a prize.
    There are two types of herds of buffalo out here. One herd has a bunch of dead lions in its trail, and the other has a bunch of dead Buffalo with lions eating on them.
    Which herd of buffalo do you think the next pack of lions is going to go after?
    Well the herd with all the casualties (dead buffalo) in it's trail is like a club full of half naked females, and the herd with the lions dead in their wake are the women who studied to show themselves approved. Otherwise known as the Proverb 31 crew ya dig😉. Chose your crew wisely after all birds of a feather......

    Government Sponsored Sexism
    1) Real sexism is almost no shelters for male victims of domestic violence.
    2) Real sexism is men getting harsher punishments for the same crime.
    3) Real sexism is countries with compulsorily military service for men.
    4) Real sexism, courts that takes children from fathers based on gender.
    5) Men cannot even vote or get citizenship without enrolling for the draft.
    6) Real sexism is numerous government departments dealing with women's issues but none dealing with men's issues.
    7) Male infant circumcision/genital mutilation is legal and performed widely and even completely socially accepted but female genital mutilation is not.
    8) A young boy raped by a woman can be forced to pay child support to his rapist if she gets pregnant, that's real sexism.
    9) Many countries do not even recognize female on male rape. It can maximally only amount to “sexual assault” that's real sexism.
    10) Real sexism is having no special laws like VAWA to protect men, even though men are the majority of victims of violent crime.
    11) There are drives to fill quotas for women for the high paid roles but not in the dangerous jobs dominated by men, thats real sexism.
    12) In the army, police, fire service or any other position women have to meet much lower physical standards than men.
    13) Real sexism is services for men only given a fraction of the funds that services for women are given at a government and a social level.
    14) For the same crime, irrespective of the gender of the offender, the perpetrator gets more punishment if the victim is female rather than male.
    15) Most divorce laws are skewed against men, men can lose half his properly, money and children to a woman who decides to leave him.
    He is expected to pay for this betrayal, especially if he has already provided for and supported her, this is real sexism.

    I've never been a dog. Never cheated. When I'm in a relationship then I'm good with that. I have other interests and hobbies other than continuing to pursue more women. Cheating, lying, have never been my struggles. My relationships end due to me moving far away or incompatibility.

    This is good and all but let’s stop acting like women are so pure and clean. Women love bad boys and men that will eventually screw them over. There’s so many men like Devon Franklin out there that constantly get overlooked because his “good guy” image isn’t perceived desirable.

    It took me 12 minutes to realize this was Devon and not Trai Byers (the oldest brother on "Empire"). I was listening while driving. Never realized how much those two look alike until Charlamagne said "Megan" instead of Grace.
