Nigerian Men On Heat About Gender Issues - Ugonna Ufere

Hello boss,
There's been a literal war on social media over the past few weeks about feminism, men and other issues. Later on, hashtags like #WifeNotCook first propounded by blogger, Noble Igwe in 2016 after his wedding emanated again. Another hashtag purportedly by men surfaced also called #HusbandNotATM and these have been a good opportunity for dialogues, even though a lot of people are being very bitter from their opinions. I am excited it is happening as we keep rethinking age-long held mindsets et al. I stumbled on a post by a reverred Nigerian, Ugonna Ufere and thought to share his thoughts on the need for men to respect women. Read it here verbatim and do let me know what you think.

"Am I just imagining things or are men now feeling
'the heat' when gender issues are raised? Especially the issues that touch on equal opportunities and fairness between genders. Unfortunately, most men see this as a mere social media agitation. Women are readily branded bitter when they decide to share their experiences. If these are really stories from bitter women, what of those that have been maimed and have lost their lives to domestic violence. Did they kill themselves? Dismissing these issues as rants from 'bitter women' is most ignorant, insensitive and very myopic. Yes it is. I'll rather men address these issues rather than slut shaming those that dare to ask for better treatment. It's not like men are perfect...but if we are to remain the 'Head' shouldn't we be tasked to be fair?

This 'New wave' of feminism is typically an "ENOUGH IS ENOUGH" cry from our women and men that identify with this consciousness. People that give me hope and assurance that my 2 daughters will get a fair chance by the time they are independent. People I respect and will always remain thankful for interacting with.

We agitate and expect so much from our political leaders but feel our women, the same people we cohabit with should stay mute to our accumulated shortcomings...come on....that's witchcraft working overtime nau ..."

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.

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.
