Men must not exploit women
GERMAN philosopher Karl Marx once said: “Social progress can be measured by the social position of the female sex.”
It is pleasing to see young girls being accepted into tertiary institutions of learning. It gives hope to the country that these brilliant minds will some day contribute to our economic as well as social growth. This joy is, however, sometimes short-lived because young women get themselves involved with the wrong men who exploit their innocence and introduce them to lifestyles that threaten their bright future.
Young women need to stay away from men who entice them with their fancy cars and money and should focus on their studies. It is of no use to risk your future for temporary pleasures and gains. Our parents work hard to send us to school so that we may have a bright future. Let us not disappoint them.
Rushing into relationships has many undesirable consequences such as unwanted pregnancies, diseases and sometimes dropping out of school due to the inability to cope with the disappointment that a failed relationship brings.
I appeal to the men who exploit young women to think about the consequences of their actions. Taking advantage of young women leaves them disappointed and sometimes unable to reach their highest potential due to their emotional distress.
