Societal Controversies: Why Hit a Woman?

Published

“ Only if you have lost your perception then, women will make no sense.” Akinrulie Opeyemi Joshua

Sandra was twenty-two years old when she met this man. They got married but she could only enjoy her marriage within the interval of two years because of the beating launched by her husband. This terrible incident catapulted her to the land of the dead thus, at the age of twenty-four she died. Why should a man hit a woman? Is he responsible or irresponsible?

A woman brought you into this world yet you treat her as if she’s nothing. She carried you in her belly for nine months. She covered and sheltered you with passion and love, till this moment you are radiating within her context. Well and truly, women can be provoking at times but this should not prompt you to beat a woman whether married or single.

What must have provoked a man to raise his hands against a woman? But in as much as anger won’t stop dwelling amidst us, what can he do? What he can do is to walk away from the atmosphere of that woman in order to quench his unpredictable fury. Women should be cherished and respected in the society perhaps, they are regarded as weaker vessels. If this is true, a responsible man would cater and guide her through challenges not to beat her mercilessly. Yet again, why hit a woman?

Have you read Danger of Domestic Violence In Relationships?

Some men will exclaim like a gong saying, “It is the devil”. Why do you always provoke the devil? In contrary, the devil doesn’t provoke, may be you are the devil then. Why hit a woman? What has she done wrong to deserve this disgraceful act? Although, women can be annoying at times but your ability to stabilize yourself is what makes you a man.

Have you imagined a world without women? If men were to be the only existence without the opposite sex. What will be the benefit of life? Who will give birth? Would man and man have sex? We must not ridicule their efforts in the development of life. Moreover, their parental guidance should be praised as regards the upbringing of children.

As a matter of fact, this act of segregation alerted some feminists to protest for equality. But, in retaliation men stood firmly to rebuff this postulation wholeheartedly. This has gotten to the extent of beating a woman to stupor. Let this question be your watchword, “Why hit a woman?”

I was worried about the condemnations and the act of recklessness meted on women. The only way I could be their mouthpiece is to write on their behalf. Why hit a woman? Don’t you have conscience? If you are to correct a woman, it should be done with maturity. The moment you beat, maturity becomes immaturity yet you want to be respected.

Men should not sell their world by creating unnecessary scenarios all in the name of anger. Women, do not provoke men. Unity should be embraced by both parties in order to excel in all spheres of life.

Adekunle –

She’s pregnant already. Three months gone. It’s funny our marriage is just three months and she’s already three months pregnant. I can’t believe this. This holy sister was already sleeping with her lover boy even before we got married!

Women!

Well, good for her. At least, she gets to experience the total package of what being a woman entails. Life has been made easy for her. Our little secret remains a secret forever.

But wait a minute- what if the child comes out looking like her covetous lover boy. Would I be able to live with a bastard child? Would they expect me to foot the bills of this seed of theirs?

I definitely cannot send another man’s child to school! Won’t this be my loss eventually if I allow this slut to keep this baby?

What is best for all of us for her to have an abortion. I can’t treat a bastard as my child and if the child resembles the lover boy too much, her secret might be exposed. It is best she aborts. If she is so eager to have a child then we have the option of adoption.

She can’t have this baby. It’s too risky.
She’s aborting this baby, she must

Adekunle

I’ve never been into women. How could I ever like women when I felt like a woman myself? Physically, I am not girly but I know what I know and I know I am a woman inside. I’m sure I must have been a girl but someone from my father’s village must have played a fast one on my mum when she was pregnant with me. I should have come like a girl, but life is what it is.

My dad is a pastor and there’s no way announcing my status would be easy on him and so I kept this little secret to myself.

I was thankful when I was sent abroad for my college, university degree and masters program. I was in a land where I was accepted for who I was and I was free. Then I was told to either come back to Nigeria or forfeit my inheritance. I had to come back home.

Now, dad had to add marriage again. Well, I’ll keep playing along.

Bewaji is a really cool lady but I don’t feel anything sexual towards her. I made her see reasons with me why we couldn’t get intimate and funny enough, she agreed. It turned out that this holy sister wasn’t really holy after all!

Well, it’s fine, I get to be me and she gets to be her.

Cunning man die, na cunning man bury am…

Bewajimi

Adekunle told me he was a homosexual. He said he had always felt like a woman within. All his years abroad, he lived as a homosexual. He knew homosexuals were not welcomed in Nigeria and he didn’t want to come back to Nigeria but now his father had given him a condition that if he didn’t come back home, all his properties would be given to charity.

Adekunle wanted the properties and that was why he did his father’s bidding. Adekunle told me point blank that he feels like a woman and there was no way he was going to sleep with another woman–he said it didn’t feel right.

I couldn’t believe my ears. This was not what I bargained for!

I told him to excuse me after he made the confession. He apologized but I just told him to give me time.

I had time to think and I came up with the perfect plan. If Adekunle wants to continue to live as a homosexual, then I should be allowed to continue my relationship with Sojimi. I suddenly felt relaxed.

I called Adekunle and we reached a truce. He was to continue is act, while I would continue with my relationship with Sojimi. We suddenly both felt a weight taken off our shoulders.

We continued with our trip to Dubai. In Dubai, we acted as if we were siblings – no one would believe we were married as Adekunle frequently visited homosexual clubs, while I was forever on phone with the love of my life – Sojimi. I enjoyed every bit of the trip and so did Adekunle.

We came back to Nigeria and relocated to Port Harcourt. Sojimi relocated as well. My somewhat dark cloud suddenly seemed to have a silver lining…
