This is no different from society and our leaders in Africa. It is why you mention abortion to an African parent and the next word you hear is “abomination”. Meanwhile, the child they forced you to birth, would end up your sole responsibility with not even as much of parental care or basic education from society or the government.
Prostitution in all it many definitions simply means exchanging sex for money or gains. The most important thing in the definition is the payment. This means that, once sex is exchanged as commodity, it is prostitution.
Feminism is a range of political movements, ideologies and social movements that share a common goal: to define, establish and achieve political, economic, personal and social equality of sexes. This include seeking to establish educational and professional opportunities for women that are equal to those of men.
Let us not go huddling in the shadows by painstakingly viewing it as an overt act of feminism. The questions were purely personal as we heard from the horse’s mouth and considering Hillary’s history in which she would not accept her husband’s name, it was surprising and all the more contradictory that she would describe herself as a wife first
People need to understand that in our little work in life, Our familial relationship would most often trumps personal achievements. We can trade our careers and accolades. We can put down our lives for family but can we lay down our life for career because we worked hard for it?
People wonder why multinationals do not sponsor educative stuffs but rather BBN. When they sponsor concerts of musicians that shame your womanhood in their lyrics, you give them a sold out concert. Actually, there are numerous scholarship for education savvy individuals but inspite of that, people leave school with more exes and body counts than as in their transcript.
It is my opinion that if we must stick together, the component units (states) must be independent of the centre and grow at it own pace. No longer should we rely on Aso Rock for all and sundry.
We have seen the elders fail. Freedom didn’t come cheap, yet in six years of independence we were already taken by military rule and a year later by an unforgettable war that the Igbos are still seething from. The system is warped, wieldy and unsustainable. Our democracy has been a charade, producing a government of liars by liars for liars.
Childhood is as beautiful thing. Forgetting it is an open wound. Just think of how losing a childhood photograph makes you feel. Whether, your childhood was like damaged merchandise or like Kelvin McAlister’s in “Home Alone”, our past do make us really, who we are. Childhoods are not hatchets; you don’t bury them. So, the idea that childhood was better in time past with examples that only represent the low class is a ridiculous myth.
