    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~~~

    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.

    Looking at the comment section, I see a few complaints in here. It makes me smile to know I do not know you and never EVER want to. Defending your cheating does not make you look better; it makes you look weak.

    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.

    You know what’s really sad is that I’ve been looking for a man like Devon to look up to. All throughout my life, I’ve had so many men I looked up to for relationships and they all cheated. That was always hard to make sense of, but to finally have a black man speak on being faithful to a woman is so important.

    This is pure anti-men by feminists. Feminists want innocent men to apologize for their “wrongdoings” and feminists never apologize for their wrongdoings. Feminists want to be first in everything. Their feelings to be considered first instead of their husbands’ feelings. They think they are more important than men which is untrue. Feminists think they are better or do better than men. The point is men are head of the house and wives are to be submissive. I did not even hear Devon on dr.Oz stating to put God first. He said to put women’s needs before men’s needs. Feminists only care about themselves and use men to get what they want or need by controlling them. I love alpha men, they are nice and loyal and will not let feminists control or walk all over them. I would be glad to be housewife and loving my husband and doing anything for him and put him above everything else except God...

  • Evi Idoghor

    Speaking on the pornography issue, if it’s spoken about from the angle of sex trafficking, maybe people will understand how destructive that industry is. Most of the girls who appear in those movies are doing it against their will, they are slaves to their masters, and often use drug and alcohol to numb their pain. When people keep searching for and watching porn, they are creating a demand for the movies, hence helping in the process of scouting young women for this industry. It is not just about our insatiable thirst for lust, it is about the lives of innocent people, who don’t know what they are getting themselves into. Most of them end up taking their own lives, the industry is abusive. Say no to pornography. You could save a life.

    "Sometimes the only thing a man will understand is pain....A man who's really in touch with the Master in himself, when the woman steps away, its a catalyst for change."
    I'm going through this right now! My girl of 5 years (on & off) wants nothing but space and time (w/ no deadline in sight) and its killing me! We've never gone w/o speaking, so this is torture. I've literally begged for her to start fresh but she needs to see a change in behavior, over time. That immediately sparked the need for change and the process of doing the work. I need to be a better man, and it took her cutting me off to take it serious. The scariest part is not knowing whether she'll fall out of love with me, start dating and fall for someone else, or just not want me back at all. She can be pretty cold when she's over something. We never had a cheating issue, more so not being vulnerable, verbal abuse, and treating her as if she wasn't good enough. Just trusting and believing that God will show her my efforts and restore her faith in me being the man she can trust to grow old with. I'm all the way committed to this hit CTG at 37 and it's hitting me at 33. it's time! These are definitely hard times though man smh
