The International day for women and by women..



So what?
I get into an argument with a man, he slaps me, I feel the pain, yet they tell me I provoked him. I should have been quiet, I should have been patient. I should apologize to him.

I get into an argument with a man, I slap him, they tell me I have no respect, no home training. I should have been quiet, I should have been patient. I should apologize to him.
Because I am a woman, I don’t have a right to be angry. So, the degree of my innocence is directly proportional to the degree of my silence in the face of oppression and brutality…..

Because I am a woman, my husband cheats on me, I am told to tolerate it to save my marriage. The barbaric and stupid excuse is that ”it is in their nature to cheat, I should slim down, dress better, cook better, pray harder and be more pleasant to him”

I cheat, and I am called a whore, I have committed an abomination, I have no right to look elsewhere for the love and emotional support I lack at home, I am an irresponsible mother.

So I am sent packing, from the home we both built, with all my earthly possessions stuffed into a tiny box on my head. I am henceforth forbidden from seeing my two older children, I’m lucky to be allowed to go with my little one still suckling on my left breast. Three years later, the little one is tagged a bastard. Now, my new name is “after-three”, because I am a woman.

He is 28 and runs a company. He’s tagged wonderful, hardworking, focused, career oriented, successful at a very young age.

I am 28 and I run a company ” Hmmmm, she is not even married, unserious, can not order her priorities right, a hustler, loves money, let her go and get a husband oh”
And I wonder if being successful has anything to do with a person’s gender.

Because I am a woman,
I am not allowed to have wits or be a prodigy, I cannot be financially buoyant, professionally successful or be treated with respect without a man beside me.

Then I am tagged a generous leg opener, “a runs girl”. They never see the possibility that I actually had to go through ups and downs to get to where I am.
Because I am a woman.

A man looses his wife to death and remarries a year after, he did the right thing, he’s being praised and congratulated for moving on, after all life is for the living.

A woman looses her husband to death and remarries after 4yrs, “ahhh! so early? Are u sure she wasn’t sleeping with that man even when her husband was alive? That was why she killed her husband. She’s a witch! ” Because she’s a woman.

Because I am a woman, this post will be considered controversial, and everyone will try to correct me.
But don’t forget, that I am a woman and it does not make me less human!!!
Share to respect some woman.

    1. I definitely agree, but the saddest thing about this is that women are the masterminds behind this but cry out at male discrimination. That’s very pathetic in my opinion. Thanks for stopping by 😁🍻

  1. The ideology behind this post is all about the quality of mind which need to get better and we as a woman need to become more confidant on our power.The thinking of those people might change or not but definitely woman don’t need to think about that thinking anymore.God has created us so only he have the right to think about woman ,no one else.

    1. Alleluia πŸ™Œ finally a female with balls πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‚πŸ™ˆ I totally agree, the real problem are women themselves. That’s saddening. But we’ve locked ourselves up in that stereotypes thinking where liberty is synonymous to micro-skirts and promiscuous ass-licking. Personally, I have no problem with that but it’s the general categorisation that pisses me off. Cause if I dare to wear a mini skirt on one of my *I so love myself days* so men think I’m seeking attention from them without actually telling themselves that I really don’t give a shit about what their penis-orientated brain might think. OopsπŸ™Š getting violent. Sorry for that πŸ’ Anyways things will eventually work out. But there’s still a long way to go. Thanks once more for the great post πŸ‘πŸ˜Š Please do take great care of yourself.

      1. Awesome😊 But I’ve decided to stop talking about this, too much negativity around the idea and it seems everybody knows the solution but does nothing to remedy to it. Please women seem to be their own enemy. So it’s seems abit pointless. But thanks for sharing your ideas and very fruitful comments ✌😁
