ABUSE HER NEVER!!!
Yaayy! Happy New Month People. Its all excitement and love from this end.
Today, I thought to deal with another of the many cankerworms eating deep into our already overwhelmed world. Lately, Humanity have experienced an uprise in Abuse cases. Abuse have always been a tool in the hands of cowards but there has been an alarming increase in the various forms of abuse there is and more often than not, women are at the receiving ends of these crimes. Top on the list of these inhumane acts is, Domestic Violence. One of the most cruel thing to do is put your hands on anyone, much less a woman. Gender based violence and targeted abuse have pathetically become a norm in the society of today. Certain cultures and false beliefs even indulge these evil by giving absolute power to the male gender, thereby subjecting the female gender to her male counterpart.
Globally, statistics have it that 137 women are killed by a member of their family daily, about 87,000 were killed worldwide in 2017, 58% of them victims of domestic violence. Many of these abuses even go unreported. Deplorable much! Isn't it ?
Many of these deaths could have been prevented. Many of our lost queens could have been here today, building, nurturing and kicking asses. Many of our bruised survivors could have been scarless today. Nevertheless, Today is a good time to start doing better.
Let us have a society where the male child is well trained to value, respect, care for and protect the female child.
Dear Parents, Train up your male child never to consider himself superior to the female folks. Teach him Equality, Integrity, Patience and Equity. Let us have a world filled with better men. Men who are lowly, responsible, respectable and admirable.
Dear Women, The heart can condone many blows but the body cannot. Stop putting up with your abusers. If your spouse hits you, Flee! There's no changing a violent man, You are better off alone alive than dead. No man loves you and dare bring himself to put his hands on you, Love shouldn't be traumatic.
Dear Men, Know better, Be better, Do better! Learn, unlearn, relearn. Periodt!
However, Physical abuse goes both ways, though quite rarely. The coin could flip and we could have a man at the receiving end sometimes. Whichever way it goes, be courageous and Flee from your abusers today!
Cheers to the month of March as we all do better 🥂.
Stay Safe Always ✌🏽.
