what is this culture thing against women? my husband came back home with goat meat... saying that its meant only for men... my 11 years old boy ate the meat but my 10 years old girl didn't... I their mother was warned not to eat. what pissed me off is the reason behind it ... women are not allow to eat . because... it is traditional meat that causes bareness and is meant only for men... oh GOD!!! WHEN WILL THIS STOP... THIS CULTURE AGAINST WOMEN... WHAT HAS GOAT MEAT GOT TO DO WITH FERTILITY AND BARENESS?IS IT GOAT MEAT THAT GIVES CHILDREN? We must deconstruct this discrimination against women ..

Sometimes I wonder what make a man special, over time I then realise the world need men at the front because only women can hold the weight that comes from behind...Women have being created to stronger in so many ways they can not compete with.

Hi Mba. Thanks for sharing your story. I'm glad you're questioning this. I hope that you ate it anyway and also that you explained to your husband that it didn't make sense and that you were no longer going to abide by traditions such as this that don't make sense and that demean/segregate women.

Dear Mba,

It keeps getting weirder by the day the ways at which society and its one sided culture see women and frowns over unnecessary issues. Well i must say just whatever is thrown at women we sure know how to over come them because we are STRONG and can stand all tides.

Thank you for writing and sharing this. Remain strong and keep fighting the good cause.
