Rant Of The Day – To The Ignorant Men

By Grace Shaibu

Hello Readers, 

Welcome to the rant column. Today, I want to address this thing that has been bothering my mind a lot, what I have heard some people say about women who own their space, women who stand their ground on getting things done for themselves and their family and how some insecure low heads, go about rubbishing them.

I had an argument with a guy and he said, I am too vocal and wouldn’t have a man being too vocal, too strong willed and too career conscious. I was dazed at those words and most especially at the thought of seeing that we still have men like this in our generation.


Uncle loser, Why should the success of a woman threaten you? Why should you be so into yourself that you have no room for expansion? who is driving your god forsaken vehicle?  I am amazed that women who are particular about the kind of life they want to live end up being tagged as too manly, not wife material like, I hate it!

It annoys me when a man says, ”with the way you behave, you don’t appear to me as a wife material”, excuse me, Who is a wife material and who isn’t a wife material? Every other thing in the house shouldn’t be taken by men but everything at home should be a burden to both parties.

Why do we allow stereotypes and unhealthy competitions have the better part of us? I am not going to try to cajole you to like me by proving to be good in doing house chores, nah, I won’t. But you can like me for me with or without house chores and let me breathe uncle! If you cannot handle my success, get in the trash bin!

Have a great week people!

    Mama no nonsense! But sincerely, some men are just naturally scared of skilfull women but like I always say, there is a man for every woman and woman for every man.

    I think ultimately people want what they want and they have the right to. There are women who want and love to be very dependent on men and there are women who wants otherwise. What’s most important is no one should be judged or intimidated because of their choices and be forced to choose otherwise. Eventually some of us gets to meet and be with our kinda men or women

    That’s something to really reflect on. Not a bad thing for a woman to have a career and be confident. I respect such women
