Masculine Myths Discussed On Facebook: Why We Must Dismantle Such

So last week, I and my Facebook friends discussed Myths about masculinity. Myths because they are lies and some of these lies create stereotypes that demean most men and make them act violently when they find themselves not in sync with some of the popular myths.

These perspectives have destroyed lots of male, so we discussed it and here is a list of some of the myths:

Men should not show emotions. It presents them as weaklings.

Men love sex!!!
Only men eat gizzards
-Men do not cry
Men are polygamus in nature
All men are liars!
The husband must not beg his wife. It must be the other way round.
That a guy should always take care of his girl friend financially.(especially in Nigeria )
Why men cheat is as a result of women
Why men cheat is as a result of women
When a woman is praised,she misbehaves
A man should not cook for the wife.
A man should not wash the wife's "undies"
A man is not ugly if he's rich or wealthy
A real man provides for his woman, he stops being a man any day he can no longer provide.
Men don't talk/ quarrel
Men are always right and a woman is wrong until she cries....
That no woman has the moral right to accuse the husband of infidelity except she was married a virgin
If a woman catches the husband cheating, the woman will leave the house, if the other way round, the woman will also leave.
- All Men love football

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.
