I Am Not A Feminist! Here's why...





I'm a woman but I'm not in favor of feminism as I think it's just a bogus word used to confuse women of our time. The bible did recognise women and their importance starting from the book of genesis. By nature the role of a woman is that of a calming effect. It's not possible to have two captains steering the same ship just like you can't have two CEOs . 

The likes of Chimamanda Adichie and Beyonce and Oprah who deceive other women and preach feminism all have men at home. Do you think it's by practicing feminism that they are able to retain those men in their homes? Truth is, they'll do anything to keep them. 

Now what you should blame is culture. Culture is the reason why women are mistreated in mostly Asian, Arabic, African countries etcetera. It is primitive beliefs that has caused damage to women. 

However, let me tell you what feminism is responsible for, it is responsible for the increased number of broken homes. It is responsible for our women going half naked thinking it's the new sexy but in reality, it is the men these women are trying so hard to impress yet they scream feminism. It is only a woman that doesn't know her place and role in life that screams feminism. Trust me, you don't want to be the lioness who has to bear children, teach them to hunt and still go out there and bring back food for her husband, yet she does it with pride. 

Let me tell you, women were made the dominated ones for a reason. Have you ever been to an organization where you have to have a female boss? Heaven knows that I can never pray or wish to work under any woman because we are ticking time bombs. Now a male boss I will choose any day and gladly use my female charms on. 

Women shey na feminist Beyonce dey sing "bow down bitches", why didn't she go for bow down niggas? From my understanding, feminism was supposed to be a way of building fellow women up and showing them that there is life besides the man, but no feminists would rather rub it into another woman's face how successful they are without the help of a man and how the other woman who isn't is a weakling. 

Do not be deceived, women were meant to be the weaker sex. Ok yes men are monsters, they are women/wife bartterers. What of the woman who hits her husband but the poor guy can't talk or report her because he will be laughed at yet if that same man out of frustration as much as taps the same woman on the cheek, he has become a monster. 

Even you who profess to be a feminist know deep down you really are not, but rather you are just not happy with the way women are treated in some societies.

The above is a comment in reply to another comment on a feminism post on Laila's blog. I read it and immediately thought to share to hear your views. To know who agrees with what she has said and who doesn't. Or the parts you agree with and the parts you don't...


I actually feel quite sad when I hear women say "I'm not a feminist!" in the same tone they'd use to say "I'm not a whore!". Most people have the wrong idea behind feminism. Without saying much I'll just leave the image below 

Many tend to have this image in their heads. This is NOT feminism. This is NOT what feminism is about. Feminism is NOT misandry, contrary to what you might think. #okbye. 


Now you, what's your take on the comment above and feminism as a whole. Let's talk.

  1. We have dealt with this issue before in this blog. So I ask the poster, please define a feminist/feminism,when you do just maybe we can have a conversation, J

  2. The problem is the misunderstanding of what feminist is all about. One woman was a guest on eltv's moments with mo and she said a lot but ano geh strength. We shld all try to b enlightened b4 making comments or deciding weda we belong or not!
    Meanwhile I think chimamanda is all about "in a nutshell, doing whatever u think u can do without limiting ursef bcos society tells u u re woman and there4 can't reach ur heights. She z all about "give me another reason to do or not to do, apart from being a woman.

  3. I agree with J and Queen. Perhaps many people are carried away because they don't really know what feminism is? I have to be honest, I have never looked up the meaning of feminism in the dictionary. With that in mind, I do not regard myself as a feminist, whatever that is. What I am against is the subjugation of women in society, and the belief that we should be seen and not heard. What I do subscribe to is the rights of the woman to live a fulfilling life. What I also subscribe to is the fact that no ship ever made it to its destination by having two captains, and my Bible tells me the man is the head of the home.
    Now, if feminism falls within these constraints, then ill happily wave my feminist flag.

    2. This comment right here echos my thoughts.

      I really do not know the dictionary definition of feminism but I will not stand for the subjugation of women or relegating them to the background or confining their whole worth to the bedroom and kitchen but i also won't stand for proud, rude, unsubmissive, arrogant women and careless mothers all in the name of "feminism".

      I also think that the commenter made some valid points, a lot of women have so twisted the idea of feminism that their version of it is completely unrecognisable.

      And that her point about female bosses is just spot on. Give me a choice between a male and female boss, I'll choose the male boss over and over again.

    3. A million likes for your comment Sunshine and Ada...... you guys have said it all..... Feminism this and that...some dunno what they are championing.....

  4. I am a feminist.

    Being a feminist to me means an equality in the rights of women as men.

    Women aren't necessary a weaker specie, it depends on what you define strength as. if strength is solely defined as brawn then definitely women can be called the weaker gender. But we know that brawn doesn't embody the total essence of strength. I'd prefer to see the feminine gender as a fragile specie.

Turia Pitt Suffered 65% Burns But Loved Conquered All...

Amazing Story Shared by Dr. Ben Carson on Facebook, i thought it is inspiring and i decided to share;

The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. 
Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:
"Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?"

His reply touched the world:

"I married her soul, her character, and she's the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams."

This made me very reflective. I just wonder; if the person you love today encounters an incident or accident that transforms who they are physically, it could be amputation, it could be paralysis, it could be severe burns that scald their flesh beyond recognition, w…

#WriteRight. VIVIAN: MY FIRST SEX EXPERIENCE WITH MY BOYFRIEND

He was my coursemate, crush, then my boyfriend.... he was super
intelligent, smart, tall, dark and handsome. Believe me he got
swag, but he didn't seem to notice me. (I'm a nerd but a sassy one
if I say so myself).  So oneday I decided to take it to another level..
After listening to a song "IF YOU LOVE SOMEBODY TELL THEM THAT YOU
LOVE THEM and watching the season film of The Secret Life of
American Teenagers. ..when Amy Jeugerns mum told her "you are only
young once". LOL that part got me.
Hope you know what i mean?

Though I'm okay with chemistry class I approached him to coach me for
the Quiz that was coming up, we found out that we had this
great chemistry between us.. hehehe both the covalent and
electrovalent bonds....

So one thing led to another till one unusual Saturday. I invited
him to my house and he came. The guy got swag, he even came
with a packet of durex condom.
We talked for a while and and and and and and
Kai!

Good morning people! 
Just checking in to sign the register. Lol. It's been a very busy week and it looks like it might be an even busier weekend. I was hoping to get some writing done when I got to the airport yesterday but I even almost missed my flight. It was hopeless trying to do any work on the plane as it was bumpy af, and this toddler behind me wouldn't stop screaming in piercing shrieks like he was being exorcised. 
I got into town pretty late and needed to keep an appointment ASAP. I'm heading out right now and it's going to be a long day, but thought I should drop this first. 
Have a splendid day. Im'ma be back soon.

THE ‘NEW’ SIDE CHICK: I WAS HER

A side chick is commonly known as a mistress or a woman that’s romantically involved with a man who is in a committed relationship.  However after doing some reflecting, I realize that’s not the only type of side chick.  I want to discuss “the new side chick”–a woman who decides to stay by a man’s side after he has expressed his lack of relationship intentions with her through his words or actions.  So many women have made this mistake at least once in their lifetime, and unfortunately I’ve done the same thing. I like to think of the new side chick as an appetizer.  You’re there just to satisfy the immediate appetite of the man, but as soon as that mouth-watering entrée comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrée is what he really wanted; he went to the restaurant to order steak, not hot wings.  You were just a placeholder, fling, temporary commitment, or  maybe even just a “good ol time” until what he really wanted was presented to hi…

Shhhhhhh....

I'm in an amebo mood tonight. Don't ask me, I honestly don't know why. Also I'd like to share too but I'd do that anonymously in the comment section. Tonight I want to talk about secrets. It's ok, we can all be anonymous. 
Is it true that EVERYBODY has a secret? 
Is there anyone here who doesn't have a secret? I'd really like to know; You're a completely open book and there's not ONE thing about you that you wouldn't mind other people knowing about? Please raise your hands up. 
And for the rest of us, what's something about you that no one knows, or very few people know? Who's got a dark secret here, or a weird one, or a funny one even? I really don't mean to be invasive but I don't want to be the only one sharing, plus I think hearing other people's secrets is quite fun, don't you think?

Let's Be Random Together! (Open Keypad).

Hey guys, a while back blog reader F said something about creating an Open Keypad post, where you can write whatever you want in the comment section. I thought it was a fun idea!
So who is interested? Comment on anything you feel like, ask me or anyone a question, talk about how your day went, your job, your interests, tell us something about you that we don't know, share a testimony with us, rant about anything you feel like, talk about your crush/boo/spouse/relationship/marriage, challenges you're facing, ANYTHING AT ALL! 
I'll only make one request; that we stay civil. 

(F it was you who made this suggestion, right? I'm not too sure and I can't even remember the post the comment was made on). 
BTW please Ejoeccome out come out, wherever you are!

Question of The Day.

TTB readers doesn't this tweet below remind you of something?
That mail that someone sent me a few weeks back. 
But why on earth should a man sleep with his son's fiancé? But what am I saying, some men even sleep with their daughters...

Oh well, I'm throwing the question to you. What has happened in your life that you never saw coming, you never hesperred it, you never imagined could happen, you never imagined could happen to you? 
It could be good, it could be bad, it could be ugly. Do tell!
And it can be more than one. Let me tell you a few. 
-owning a blog -week long dry fast at Prayer City (I never hesperred it).  -staying in an (emotionally) abusive relationship.
The others require anonymity. LOL. Now over to you.
