In the society we live in today, especially in this Africa, women are seen to being the “weaker vessel”. Therefore, any form of violence against them is deeply frowned at. Domestic Violence is bad. But is beating a woman just because she is a woman bad? Read that again and let it sink. Now check out this Scenario:
A Man is on a queue at the ATM. A woman comes from nowhere and tries to beat the queue and get int front of him, but he shoves her aside and tells her to join the queue the proper way.A sane Woman would simply apologise and do the proper thing. But this woman wasn’t sane. Next thing, She starts insulting the man just because he shoved her. Now everyone is ignoring all the insults the woman is giving to this man o. No one is cautioning her. The Man being fed up with the insult drops his bag to face her before he knows it she lands him a very “dirty’ Slap. Before this man will react, everyone rushed to hold the Man with the “Oga leave am na woman” sermon. No one is holding or cautioning the woman who is still making attempt to hit the man and still insulting him o.
In the Above Scenario, if the man starts to beat up that woman, would you say he was right or wrong?. To me o. I won’t blame him at all. She was the one that first hit him, so whatever she receives after that, na she know. There are some women that deserve all the beating they get from any man because, their mouth eh, e no dey stay one place. Some women can push even the humblest of men to the wall and expect him to not react. Ones he reacts, the society will tag him a “Woman beater”. Well, I say FUCK.THAT.SHIT. See eh, if my own sister comes and meet me now and says that one boy slapped her or punched her, the first thing I will ask is “What did you do to him because I don’t believe anybody will just slap someone just like that without bein provoked. From the response I get from her, I will know how to react. If you can take the beating, Watch your mouth or how you react in public.
Now Y’all don’t get me wrong o. Agreed, there is no justification to hit anybody be it man or woman, but let’s be real biko. Not everyone has the same temperament. The thing that me I will ignore some other dude will knock your teeth out. So, We should not be quick to judge a case just because it was a woman that was beaten. If it was a dude that a lady beat up, all of you will be laughing at the guy, but once its the other way round, you all will be the same people that will tag him a Beast.
The bottom line is If you don’t want to get beat up….WATCH YOUR MOUTH AND ATTITUDE!!!
