导读:

“剩女”不是新鲜事物,但这个话题如今却越炒越火,电影、电视剧、综艺节目、书籍、网络……放眼看去,全是它的身影。那排山倒海的炒作之势,在中国如此,在美国如此,世界皆如此。但“剩女”的确是个社会问题——为何这些条件优秀的女人,到头来却难觅一佳偶?前些日子,(美国)ABC电视台《晚间报道》栏目邀请诸位名人,组织了一次男女对话,旨在找出问题的答案。虽然它的话题集中在黑人女性身上,但这个话题与对话的价值,绝不仅限于一个种族。这场男女对话,针锋相对,处处透出男女之间思维的差异,很值得一看。

 

优秀剩女

 

Vicky Mabrey (co-host of Nightline Face-Off ): Hello, Atlanta, and welcome to the Nightline Face-Off. Tonight we are going to find out why a successful black woman can't find a man. That's a topic that we talk about amongst ourselves. The guys talk about it with their fellas and the ladies are talking about it at the beauty shops. So, we've heard the statistics report that by age 30 only 50% of black women have tied the knot; that black women outnumber black men in college 2:1; and that there are almost 2 million, exactly 1.8 million more black women than black men. So, we're asking, who's to blame? I am gonna start right now with Mr. Jimi Izrael. Why do you think that women cannot find the man of their dreams?

维琪·马布里(《晚间报道》“面对面”栏目主持人):你好,亚特兰大。欢迎来到《晚间报道》“面对面”栏目。今晚我们来讨论一下,为什么一名成功的黑人女性找不到自己的真命天子。我们私下都在谈论这个话题。男生会与他的兄弟们殷殷讨论,女士们则在美容院里细语交言。我们手头有一些数据显示,跨入30岁行列的黑人女性中只有50%结了婚;在大学里,黑人女性与黑人男性的比例是2:1;而黑人女性的人数比黑人男性的人数多出大概200万人,准确一点说,180万。所以,我们不禁要问,问题出在谁身上?我现在先来和吉米·伊斯雷尔先生聊聊。你觉得这些女人为什么找不到梦中的白马王子呢?

Jimi Izrael (author of The Denzel Principle): There's nothing wrong with having standards, right? But your standards have to be reasonable. And very often, some of these women, that are looking for men, you know, what they don't understand is sometimes you have to be the person that you're looking for. So, so, you're looking for somebody that you aren't. Then you're sad because you can't find the perfect man—well you're not a perfect woman! And the only thing that “The Denzel Principle” says is like: look, sometimes you have to be the person you're looking for. That's it, you know, that's it.

吉米·伊斯雷尔(《丹泽尔法则》作者):有标准没什么问题,对吧?但是你们的标准必须合理。但是很多时候,有些女人,她们所寻找的男人……你知道,她们并不晓得有时候你必须成为与你想要找的对象相匹配的人。所以,也就是说,你在寻找的那个人其实与你并不相配。结果你会伤心难过,因为你找不到完美的男人——但你也不是完美的女人啊!而“丹泽尔法则”说的最重要一点就是:听着,有时候你必须得成为你所寻觅的那种人。就是这样,你知道,就这样。

Vicky Mabrey: What is “The Denzel Principle”? What do you mean?

维琪·马布里:究竟什么是“丹泽尔法则”呢?你想说的是什么?

Jimi Izrael: Women are looking for men that don't exist. They're looking for this picture perfect archetype, this Denzel Washington to come, pulling up to their house in a new Maybach-Benz with a trunkful of Godiva chocolates and a suitcase full of $100,000 bills. And it's not gonna happen, it's not gonna happen!

吉米·伊斯雷尔:女人寻找的男人根本不存在。她们在寻找一个想象出来的完美模型,那位属于自己的丹泽尔·华盛顿出现,开着一辆全新的迈巴赫·奔驰,载着满车的歌帝梵巧克力,还拿着一个装满10万美元大钞的箱子,径直走到她们的门前。但这是不可能出现的,不可能发生的事情!

Vicky Mabrey: Sherri, is that what you're looking for?

维琪·马布里:雪莉,那是你追求的吗?
