How women are constantly berated by men for everything they do beats my imagination and the media is an accomplice.
A colleague had sent a picture of a group of ladies who attended musician Becca’s wedding. I thought it was a good picture until I saw the caption, “Ghana Single Mother Association Ghana GHAMSA were there to support Becca at her wedding day."
It turned out a guy called Fredie Mawuli posted the picture on his Facebook page with the above caption and it went viral. I did not know what reaction my colleague who sent me the post was hoping to get, but if the intention was to make me angry, damn right it did!
What have women done to men? What have we done to be at the mercy of their dry joke in this instance. How women are constantly berated and looked down on for everything they do beats my imagination.
When a man has sex with a woman he feels it is a conquest which he has won and the woman has lost. When a relationship ends up on the rocks, it is common to hear "the woman has been dumped."
It is okay for a man to have several girlfriends but an abomination for a woman to have many boyfriends -she will be labeled a whore. When a woman is successful at work, she slept her way to the top.
A woman drives a big car, and the assumption is a sugar daddy definitely bought it for her. When a man has a child without getting married (which is very common by the way)it is okay. Let a woman do same and she is tagged a "single mother" in a derogatory way.
When we stand up for ourselves we are bitter. When we get angry and express it, we are told to get laid as though a piece of dick can make everything better.
What the hell is Ghana single mothers association? What is that? So what? if the women in the photo are all single mothers? What is so wrong with a woman deciding to keep a baby and raise it by herself?
If you found that useless post funny. A lot needs to be said about your psyche
While t expect Freddie Mawuli to bow his head in shame i expect the media to do same too. Over the past few years the media has given one man a supposed counselor George Lutterodt all the platforms digital , radio, tv to spew nonsense about women in general and single mothers.
It is unimaginable how Nana Aba Anamoah, Joselyn Dumas and the rest have suffered at his lips of this man. These successful and responsible mothers have been publicly ridiculed for having babies .
Have you seen any attempt by the media to ridicule single fathers? Have you seen a tweet or a post on social media making mockery of men raising children on their own?
We can do better by women and that is what we should aim for. Enough of such nonsense!
