Dear men, not all Feminists are Angry

NATURAL HAIR ART:

Dutch artist Sit “Haiiro“, 2012. S):

“Black Girls… Don’t be afraid to use your voice. Your thoughts, opinions, and ideas are just as important as anybody else. When you speak, speak with boldness and purpose. Have courage, be confident, and always be true to yourself! Live your life fearlessly! Your voice has GREAT power; don’t be afraid to utilize it when needed. You’re NOT an angry Black woman; you’re a woman who has something important to say. Your voice matters and so do YOU.”
Stephanie Lahart

If you have been in a situation where you’ve been denied so many opportunities not because you aren’t good , but because you are a woman, you ‘d understand what African Feminism is. you’d understand that being a Woman to me is like being Black. As racism is to Blacks, Oppression is to women from all angles of the society.
If you have ever had time to read and see graphic images of young girls being raped and hanged in India you would understand that if you had a daughter, or sister you ‘d protect her. There’s a difference between gender equality and gender equity. And I think for a moment ‘m beginning to deviate to seeing gender equity as the way forward-That’s another post for another day. Murder is murder, but most of these men aren’t put on trial- this makes them walk around the streets as free men. And even when they are put n trial, the court over rules their cases and everyone calls it a moment of pleasure.

I hope men understand that African feminist aren’t angry, but irritated by the undermined society that they feel a need to voice out and address issues rather forsaken.

    I always thought you guys were one angry bunch of individuals well maybe I’ll have a rethink. You should also agree that most of you push this feminism thing too far.
