A CRY FROM A TEENAGE PREGNANT GIRL

Emma Aloka
Posted December 6, 2020 from Kenya

It sometimes angered me the way the society discriminate against women or girls.  A teenage girl become pregnant and we don't bother to ask for the male partner but just judge the girl  even though we know that pregnancy is an act between two people.  Why discriminate to an extend of expelling the teenage girl out of school yet the other male partner has to continue with his education? Is there justice when one gender suffers more than the other??? Yes I agree that sometimes we both have abused our rights as a member of a given society but why is it only too harsh on my gender?? Where did I go wrong when I only made my first cry into the world and found myself as a woman. Why do I have to explain myself to everyone while the male gender is left alone and being given praises that he has proven to be a man.  Why give such praises to the boy and come back and insult the girl?? We want to be ourselves so judge us equally coz we all (girl and boy) participated for my pregnancy. If a girl is abused let's also abuse male counter part and if he is praised then let the girl also be showered with lots of praises since we, two, are all responsible for our action and not my female gender alone. Non disciminative society  against women should begin with a single member of the society and that is me or you.

Yah I think this issue is everywhere in the world, this is actually a pain in the neck, why should young girls that make such mistakes be stigmatized? Even from their family and peers. I think running a seminar world wide will help to stop this discrimination.

Dear Emma,
The plight that a pregnant teenage girl has is a burden that affects her for life. The world has deemed her to have the greatest disadvantage, and the male has the unfair advantage and benefit of a double standard. This has been written in stone for many centuries, worldwide. Starting from the grassroots is the only way things can change. The power is with women. Women have to be supportive of women. Many of our sufferings come from women, against women. If this teenage girl was surrounded by female support, from peers to grandmothers, she would grow into a thriving woman. It's our gender that too often supports and praises the male, when praise is not due. Women too often worship men at the expense of our own gender.
This is also worldwide for many centuries. Women have to support women. That is a vision of hope and achievement for women to flourish.
Hugs...JoMarie

Dear Emma,
You have every right to be angry, none of this violence should be happening, not for any reason or excuse. It is so good to see you challenging these unfair judgements that are put on girls. This is what we can work to change, all the stronger together knowing that you have the strength and courage to raise your voice. You are calling out the men who are teaching the boys of a whole new generation that a man is here to dominate, rather than that a man should never, ever treat a woman badly. Your call for equal and fair treatment is a call that shakes loose this horrible discrimination. Bravo!

Male chauvinism is a dehumanizing culture which has to stop
