Two nights ago, I met with a friend @ this bar where they apparently serve lovely ice cream and delicious chocolate cakes. So, me and my sis hooked up with her, and we got talking. We talked about a lot of things, but the one I still can't get off my mind is the topic of how men mistreat their women. I have previously posted something related on this blog titled "equality", but I realise that this issue needs to be addressed often and with full emphasis.
It pains any lady to hear what other ladies go through in the confines of their space while keeping it buried in. This issue is getting really disturbing, especially when you hear about what young educated guys do to their ladies!
We often read stories in the papers about men murdering their wives, or @least hospitalising her after a series of punches and blows. In fact, it feels like this part of the world is adjusting to this path. It almost feels natural to hear about a man beating his wife now. Or, how else will you explain a man beating up his wife regularly for almost 20 years, and no one (not even his family) can do anything to stop it?. How can a boyfriend who hasn't even put a ring on it, beat up his girlfriend just for some silly suspicion and people simply laugh about it?
In civilised world, a man is NEVER supposed to hit a woman not to talk of beating her black and blue. Who cares in this country what women are going through? Who cares if they are being cheated and maltreated? Who cares to stop this sickening violence against women, when the people that are meant to lead by example also do it? How can you preach something you don't act?
As a woman, I will never let a man mistreat ME in such way!
As a woman, I will never remain in a marriage where I'm being used to practice boxing... Social responsibility be damned! I have a responsibility to myself to stay alive, and to God, to treasure his temple (My Body)!.
As a woman, I say stand up for your right (regardless of your social status). Without us, they're nothing anyway! Every lady deserves so much more than an animal for a partner; you deserve to be loved, cared for, treated with respect, and worshipped because God knows we have a whole lot more to worry about than when next the blows will arrive.
No matter how weak I am, I'm not a chicken and will never stand to be treated like one...
