What you say versus what they hear about issues affecting women

When you say you believe in mutual submission between a husband and his wife, what they hear is that you won’t be a submissive wife.

When you say that men and women are equal, what they hear is that you are trying to be like men which is not possible because men are the Lords of their wives.

When you say that women should be financially empowered, what they hear is that you are telling women to be richer than their husbands.

When you tell women to demand to be treated with respect, what they hear is that you are teaching women to be stubborn and to disobey their men.

You say one thing, they hear something else

When you tell women to live their lives to the fullest, have fun and be free, what they hear is that you are telling women not to get married.

When you say women shouldn’t tolerate abuse of any kind, what they hear is that you are teaching women not to build their homes like their mothers did.

When you tell women not to start what they cannot finish before marriage, what they hear is you telling women not to act like wife materials.

When you say men should cook and clean like their wives do, what they hear is that you are teaching women to turn their husbands to house boys.

When you say that women should take care of themselves and space their children, what they hear is you telling women to refuse their husbands sex.

When you say you are a feminist and believe in gender equality, what they hear is that you hate men and you are a lesbian.

There are silly, mannerless twats everywhere disgracing themselves and exposing their lack of home training. One even said women shouldn’t go out alone without their husbands. Na wa.

Men need to stop behaving like the world belongs to them only. Women are human human beings too and they deserve to be respected.
