Scard

Three out of 5 girls have either been sexually assaulted by someone they know or a spouse. The few who dare talk about it recieve a backlash greater than the act itself.

Room has hardly been given for expression especially victims of rape. All forms of rape are punisheable by law but the ick is the fact that you most have prove. Quick question, how do you ask a kid to show proof of something she doesnot even know the definition.

The consequences of rape can go from trauma, change of personality, denial, sexual assault on others in the future, depression and the list goes on.

Some women have been scard to an extend of refusing any contact with men, turning into lesbians or shun any aspect maleness.

The scars never go away because we grow up or we try to forget, they only go silent until another event makes the wound fresh again. Teach ur children, girls and boys the different parts of the body which are private, not to be touched by anybody including relatives. Train them to speak out if any of this should happen. Reassure survivors of rape that it is not the end, but a new start.

Misconception

Why do women attack their fellow woman when a man cheats? Is the other woman the problem? Is she the borne of contention? There are many broken homes out there with fingers pointing at the girl or woman outside, whereas you share the same bed with the mastermind day in day out.

Most men will pull out the ‘seduced’ card and will willingly accept they are weak in the face of this temptation. So, my question to these men is, did she walk up to you and asked to be dated, if yes, couldnt u just say NO? Do u have any idea how much temptation a woman goes through but doesnt hid to?

Back to the misconception of women being home breakers, the bible says we should keep to our vows and it is worth nothing that even if you are a christian if your foundation for your marriage was poorly made, your loopholes will make your home crumble. When vows start being broken, trust me there is a storm on the way.

Its amazing how some men will shamelessly accuse their wives for their incapacity to keep their zipper closed. ‘Men will always be men’ so they say, the most annoying statement to cover up existing rotten gender norms.

Strong women should always have the back of each other. Be assertive, Empower one another and let the men either change their chauvinistic attitudes or keep walking.

Women Are Also to be Blamed

Some women believe that their beauty is determined on how exposed their boobs are or how short or tight their shirt and trousers are. We see today in either movies or video clip women wit little or no clothing in the name of being stars. We all know even though it is assumed by many that women are the weaker sex, men are even weaker in front of an exposed tight or boobs.
The next thing will be rape and when the man Is asked y, he will say he was attracted by her almost naked body, even if we know some men don’t stop at that to commit rape.
Women should command respect in their dressing and the way they carry themselves. There is nothing bad with looking responsible and sexy at the same time.

Women and Their Triple Roles

Women still carry along with them all of the burden. They have to take care of the house, the children and the husband. But yet despite all of these efforts, she is not recognized by the society in which she finds herself in.
In the Cameroonian society, the triple role of women( child being, caring and community) has become a loop hole where people judge whether u are a good wife, good mother or an assert to your community. Women have the right to make their choices. They should be the one to decide when to get married how many child the want to have and the type of jobs they want to do. The Cameroonian law that gives the man an upper hand to determine his wife’s choice of job should be amended. Women have always been good managers at home, its time they start managing banks, ministries, and y not the country.

Gender spy

laugh out loud

A very beautiful lady gets into a barbing salon and greets both the barber and the client. The client turns to the lady and says “wow baby u look amazing i will like u to be my woman” and the lady says,” i am married” then the man says to her “don’t worry you can tell you husband you were delayed at work or you have some catch up to do at work then you come and meet me in my house”. the lady says no need you just told him. In your opinion what hair cut will the barber(the husband) give the man?.

Culture Good or bad?

cameroon is very rich culture wise as we have over 200 different cultural heritages. culture is a great tool for identification especially in a foriegn land. but do women enjoy these culture when we pass the fancy dresses and the traditional events?. some cultures do not accept women to own property. in the north west region of cameroon there some money  is a saying when a woman is married that ” property cannot own property”. women are refered to as property here because their parents recieved some money as  dowry.

in that same part of the country women use to be buried with their husbans or forced to drink water from their husbands corpse especially if she is suspected to have a hand in his death.

with the dualas it is different as when a women loss the husband she is not aloud to take a bath, sleep alone or have a dierrect contact with another person.

the laws of cameroon are doing practically nothing when this happens. this might lead to her falling sick or even dying as a result of an infection.
