Women abuse: Who is to blame?
We men continue to abandon women and break them. We abuse them and kill them, instead of protecting them.
I don’t think we are worthy of women. We men cheat and do all sorts of things but our sisters forgive us and continue to love us. If they cheated we’d never do the same.
A fellow brother can sleep with the entire town and we call him “a real G”, a man among men and we praise him but we harass a sister who does the same and call her all sorts of demeaning names.
We men are weak compared with women. We portray ourselves as being superior because, in fact, we’re hiding our inferiority. We abuse women and deny them opportunities because we seek to have them trapped in our patriarchal way of doing things for our own selfish gain.
I’m scared of bringing a girl into this world where she’ll forever be a target of hate and abuse from toxic young men like me.
The patriarchal society we live in is demeaning towards those who carry us for nine months and bring us into this world. It’s heartbreaking to read stories about how young men abuse and kill women. Who should we young men blame for all this?
Do we blame it on the societies we’ve been conditioned into? Do we blame it on our fathers and uncles? Or on our own culture, which is demeaning towards our sisters and mothers?
