BOYS WILL BE BOYS

From culture to culture, we have adopted the idea of prepping our girls/daughters for her marital home.  I for one am the product of such raring practices. My mom felt that I had to learn to cook, clean and take care of my body to become a good wife someday.   Her mother taught her the same and her mother's mother did the same.  When asked why, she said "one day all these qualities will make you a GOOD WIFE for some lucky man".   I've tried to get her to break the circle but I was told if I didn't possess these qualities, she would consider her self a failure,  so I was a "Good Child" and went along.  
                                                                           
 
Now, keep in mind I grew up the only girl in the house with two brothers, yet, my mom never mention such talks to the boys.  Wont they too need learn how to cook, clean, and care for their bodies so they too can make someone's daughter a happy wife?....NOPE.  Why not, you may ask.
                                                                              
                                                                                 
  Well, because "BOYS WILL BE BOYS".   Really? Well, now I am left with the mostly unanswered question regarding what exactly does it mean to be a boy/man.  Ninty nine percent of the time a man's role is refer back to the Bible/ Holy Book.  Adam was suppose to sweat for his meal and Eve is to cry through childbirth. Well, I for one has endure both. and I am sure about eighty percent of my fellow females  has too.  Has a man ever experienced childbirth?  I think not.  Now, have Women had to sweat for their daily bread....YES,YES,and YES.  I am sweating right now as I write this to you.  With these thoughts circulating through my head i am still left with the questions of DO I REALLY NEED A MAN, if I do, THEN WHATS IN IT FOR ME?

Please feel free to comment.

Live Simple so Others May simply live!

Liberia: Spoon Tv Has Been Accused of Being a Government Operative

Spoon TV has risen to prominence as a platform for unfiltered news, political viewpoints, and social concerns. Unfortunately for the television network, the recent visit of their team to Liberia has led to some people questioning their objectives and ethics, which is unfortunate for them. Check out few post on the subject from fans around the world. "This is your Spoon TV Crew in Liberia hobnobbing with the CDC Government. My issue is not that they are meeting the Government. I believe in constructive engagement and the Government represent all Liberians. My issue is, this is the same Spoon TV that faults everybody of being in cohort with the government once they hear gossip about you being friends with the CDC folks.
