As you know we don't cover the personal lives of the people in the entertainment business on Women and Hollywood.  But there Are occasions where we need to make an exception.  Jada Pinkett Smith has been dealing for some time with rumors surrounding her marriage.  She took to Facebook, and beyond shutting down these rumors, she gives a very feminist statement about marriage and ownership. Check it out in full below.

Open marriage?

Let me first say this, there are far more important things to talk about in regards to what is happening in the world than whether I have an open marriage or not. I am addressing this issue because a very important subject has been born from discussions about my statement that may be worthy of addressing.

The statement I made in regard to, "Will can do whatever he wants," has illuminated the need to discuss the relationship between trust and love and how they co-exist.

Do we believe loving someone means owning them? Do we believe that ownership is the reason someone should "behave"? Do we believe that all the expectations, conditions, and underlying threats of "you better act right or else" keep one honest and true? Do we believe that we can have meaningful relationships with people who have not defined nor live by the integrity of his or her higher self? What of unconditional love? Or does love look like, feel like, and operate as enslavement? Do we believe that the more control we put on someone the safer we are? What of TRUST and LOVE?

Should we be married to individuals who can not be responsible for themselves and their families within their freedom? Should we be in relationships with individuals who we can not entrust to their own values, integrity, and LOVE...for us???

Here is how I will change my statement...Will and I BOTH can do WHATEVER we want, because we TRUST each other to do so. This does NOT mean we have an open relationship...this means we have a GROWN one.

Siempre,
J

    Alright 'NO'... I'll answer you in a Jada Pinkett Smith kind of way. One might thing that you're a RUDE STUPID IDIOT.

    But I really don't think you are. HOWEVER, I am free to think WHATEVER I WANT. If I ever decide to think that you're a stupid idot, I WILL DO SO.

    I AM NOT saying that I am, but if I DID, I should have the freedom to do so.

    Thank you, please drive-thru.

    And that's the way it should be; it's neither your nor mine goddamn business.
