Thanks Viv!

Nah Nicki, please we need men on this planet, or speak for yourself at least! 

Truth be told it's easy to hate the idea of men especially in the patriarchal world that we live in. But, I do love (some) men, and they bring a lot to the table too. I had a chat with the proprietor of my school a few days ago and we got to talking about the different trainers. She said she wants more female lecturers/trainers. She said females make much better teachers and that most men find it difficult being under a woman, that some of the males who work in the school still cannot deal with the fact that she's boss, even though she pays their salary. She said she's also observed that most of them aren't loyal and once the next best thing shows up, they bounce!

BUT that the men also have a lot to offer. She said she's noticed men often have a lot more content than their female counterparts. She said they go above and beyond with their research and their course content is always very loaded! She also said she needs the men around because the way they think is different and this is really evidenced during meetings. She said they tend to think more logically and decisively than their female colleagues, and are often responsible for the better ideas. 

Do y'all agree with this?

Oh btw Nigerians are winning the Jollof wars. Gabrielle Union said so 😜😜😜


  1. I read the whole interview. She said that in the context of not needing a man to reach your full potential.J

  2. Yeah... Nicki said that in reference to women thinking they need men to live.

  3. It's a given that the average man tends to think more logically than the average woman - who does better with intuition or emotions than the average man. The issue is that most don't realize that both logic and intuition have a place in solving daily challenges.

    I think its not unusual for her to experience that most men aren't loyal or always looking for the next best opportunity. The quest for power, and primacy tends to be more dominant in men than women. Having a subordinate respect one as boss is more than paying the person's involves a bit of expertise, charisma, leadership competencies etc.

    I think the other distinctions may be as a result of the environment or not necessarily a gender thing. She's certainly wise to carefully plan some element of gender diversity into her training staff. Chrisyinks
