Is Men Empowerment A Taboo in Nigeria?

Female speaker: 
Men didn't get a fair chance at being groomed, loved, taught about life and family life. Then they are suddenly  expected to perform miracles in adulthood! No way! 

Even the bible rightly said a woman' is 'the helper' but we leave both the help and leadership to men after not grooming them from the home front?

Men must lead and provide and protect a powerful gender - the woman, who carries with her all that he needs to multiply. But when he doesn't even have the basic leadership training to be a human being first before being male, what happens?

Male Speaker:

True! You babes are actually helpers according to the Bible, but Nigerian culture puts all the help on men. I have never seen a woman interested in empowering men or considering they are even humans. Na so so women empowerment, we nko?


What do you think about this conversation? Is it feminist? 

Someone asked me if I am feminist and I was at a loss because, I have never understood the concept. I am of course the "female speaker" in the conversation and hoping to hear your views. I am learning.

Why Pastor Goodheart Ekwueme Resigned From House on the Rock Church in Abuja

I have been in pains!

If you follow me on Instagram, you will notice, I put up my pastor and coach's picture last weekend because I was heart broken.
He is Pastor Goodheart Ekwueme, the outgone (as much as I hate to use that) resident pastor of my local assembly in Abuja. I and all those who knows him, are going to miss him soooooooo much, it hurts.

Jenny Chisom's 12 Codes of Conduct for Men That Rivals Any Male Code

It's been a tough past week so I am grateful for Sunday heralding a new week.
I have been burdened to create a Code of Conduct for members of the League of Extraordinary Men (LExM) on Facebook. So while I couldn't attend service, I sat down and wrote this down on my note pad, then typed it.
This came in a bid to begin to restructure the group to ensure it is serving the right purpose and the right men.

Violence Against Men, Mnombo Madyibi and The VAPP Bill

Quite some fuss has been on about this man in picture MnomboMadyibi who was allegedly hit with a bottle of wine and also suffered attempted suffocation using a red and white teddy bear. But as expected it did not get as much attention like if the switch was fixed (the experience being that of the woman).
We must know that if men keep being treated like non humans, even the violence against women we usually fight for, will only increase astronomically, since after all a woman must live and find her fulfilled being married to a man or at least living and being in relationships with them.
