Earlier today Freeze of Cool fm shared a post on domestic abuse, asking men who are victims to speak up and walk away. He said he himself was once a victim of domestic abuse, which he suffered in the hands of his ex wife, Opeyemi.
What was most surprising was the comments that followed. 1 out of 5 were empathetic. The others cussed him out..., called him a liar..., asked what he was doing while his woman was abusing him..., asked how it's possible for a woman to beat up a man and he wouldn't knock her lights out..., ridiculed him saying he deserved it, because he spent so much money on wrist watches and the woman must have only been trying to beat some sense into his head (LOL)..., called him names, especially attention seeker... On and on it went.
Some people said that when women claim to be victims of domestic abuse, they always have the pictures to show for it. So Freeze should freeze till he has some pictures. Oh well, I guess no one thunk it but Daddy Freeze had some pics cooling off, and earlier today, he did share them.
His earlier tweets below;
The pictures, for those who don't believe that men are also victims of domestic abuse. But I must add that his ex wife has been silent and the pictures he shared are allegedly of the abuse he suffered. So we really don't know for certain that they are actual wounds and bruises inflicted on him by Opeyemi.
...About a year ago I did a post on a couple who live in Lekki 1, Lagos. Wifey has been physically abusive almost from the get go, and as at when I wrote that post hubby was in the hospital fighting for his dear life, thanks to stabs from dear wife earlier that morning. One of our rather extreme feminists, who no longer comments on the blog, accused me of being a woman-hater, and of always castigating women and idolizing men, who we all know are always wrong. As far as she was concerned men are never the victims, and in the rare event that a man is a victim of domestic abuse, then he must have done something to deserve it. I beg to differ.
I hope everyone in abusive relationships, both male and female, find the strength to walk away.
