Like play play, the gender inequality they preached to us in our notes back in school has turned to feminist rants these days. Should we go back to our textbooks and teach these feminists what inequality truly means in the actual sense?

The question of equality has never been my business until I came across something that made me rant enough is enough.

I am done hearing this thing, feminist ranting about equality and kinikan one thing one thing. For a while, I observed different posts on facebook arguing without ends on why women should be taken as men equals. Oh that’s their problem, what normally amuse me is when these arguements are flying on the third mainland bridge in Nigeria, having  no basis and actual sense. Inequality is one, debasement is another. Please what are you talking about exactly?

Let us look at this case, how can you declare a common poster, poster oh, a caption! How can you bring your feminist self to it? How dare you? washing off whatever it was meant to portray by your tirade rant?

Fox apologises for X-Men: Apocalypse promo image of Jennifer Lawrence being strangled. –Apology my foot!

One Actress said, “there is no context in the ad, just a woman getting strangled- (if it is a man nko?) The fact that no one flagged this is offensive and frankly stupid...

And that feminist website is saying, when Jennifer i.e mystique finally got a leadership role, this strangulation happened! I cannot laugh, she even said what we have here is a naked woman being choked by a man three times her size. Oh goodness! That naked woman is an actress acting a choking role!

It is just a picture, a film for goodness sake, why so serious? I mean, it’s X-Men! what freaking context are you looking for? If women are brutalised, misused and misplaced, It is okay to advocate for them and help them, cloth them- in bible terms,  not tramp on a poster, take it out elsewere please.

I am tired of hearing that the misfortunes and what have you that happened to some women are based on the weight of man’s superiority and inequality against woman. Come to think of it, why don’t you leave the whole  question of feminism, equality and shit out of the equation and actually look into the matter of  how everyone can better be their brother’s keeper however little?

Are you not tired of this already? Instead of shouting feminist rules upandan, rules you cannot even tell left from right, nothing you know about, why not establsih yourself and make men fall at your feet, shey that is what you want.

Dear ever zealous upside down feminist, here is what I think.

The question of equality should be ruled out when it comes to men and women because that is not what it should be about. So called people shouting equality. Let me tell you,
In some sets of experiences, men and women are not equal. No matter how much you struggle to paint equality on it or advocate for equality. They can’t be identical,
They can’t be compared, they can’t be the same, Man and woman are not equal. It is not possible for a man and woman to have the same set of values. But what a man and woman can have is a set of shared values. When we have set of shared values and recognise this also, then we can talk about equity. With sense.
( how can you say that in a poster of X-men apocalypse promo image of mystique being strangulated depicts feminine debasement?)
Because that is what these so called struggle is exactly about. And most either don’t know or have their ideas of it misplaced.

Ogbenis and madam feminist, abeg go siddon.

I don’t even know what you people are ranting about.

  1. YeAh well said, but the fact is there have been a lot of misconceptions about the word feminism, from my own view God never shared the gift of life equally, but humans could share a set of values…so those ranting over poster should seek knowledge where they are lost…

  2. I don’t believe in feminism, and I have no chill for anyone who claims to be a feminist. All I see most times is reverse sexism. Let get this clear, WE’LL NEVER ACHIEVE EQUALITY BETWEEN MEN AND WOMEN, we should strive instead to achieve equal opportunity for both.
