This has really been on the tip of my pen to write for a while now, now I will. But first of all, how una dey? Hope you all had a swell time during the long break? Ehmm, Jummy, hope the sallah meat hasn't finished yet cos I'm coming for mine tomorrow. Lol.
So back to today's post. I've been trying my best to understand the discrimination against female children, while male ones are protected. Female virgins are applauded and in some tribes, it is a must to keep yourself for your husband, but has anyone asked why this isn't applicable to male too? Why are the scales tipped?
A girl will be told from birth to be careful and keep herself for her future husband, why isn't the same preached to the sons? The most I've heard is "better don't get any girl pregnant and bring her home". Shouldn't abstinence be preached to both parties?
A man sleeps with twenty women and he is a termed "a made man", a lady on the other hand who sleeps with twenty men is not only considered a prostitute and whore, but every other "french" unprintable words to describe her.
This same thing is applicable in cheating. When a woman is caught cheating, eyes front back to your papa house. But when the guy is caught, the woman has to live and endure it. In some cases, he becomes sober and apologizes, while sometimes he boast his masculinity to you. You either live with it or leave, inorder words, you as a woman is still affected. This Life eeh.
I'm not trying to justify any actions here, all I'm trying to say is there should be equity. What isn't good for the goose, shouldn't be good for the gander. Whatever is frowned upon for the ladies should also be frowned upon for the men. Yea, call me a feminist, I agree, but all I'm trying to state is if anything should be frowned upon, it's the fact that some people still think the women should remain in the shadows, which shouldn't stand.
Let me chill here for now, but I'll be talking about something similar to this later this week. # tongueout. Love you all always, Muaahh.
