Yesterday, a bill meant to allow men to take care of their seeds without necessarily supporting the kids’ mothers was defeated in parliament.
Of course nowadays, to appear ‘modern’ and ‘civilised’, lawmakers are forced to embrace the ‘progressive’ waves of feminism that promise to ‘liberate’ the hitherto ‘enslaved’ women. Today, a rich man who engages in casual, unprotected sex with that ‘innocent’ university girl is joking around with fire. Literally. The current laws, expectedly, favour women and a man who isn’t properly nailed when taken to these courts by a woman who claims to have had kid(s) with him should consider himself lucky. In the US, for instance, young men aren’t getting married for the simple reason that marriage in the US has turned to be the financial Achilles heel for many men. Whenever the American man is dragged to the court by his ex-wife or his baby momma, he can be sure as hell that his financial woes have begun.
What is disgusting is that Kenyan laws are just bastardised laws from western countries. The same disastrous laws that have made the family unit to collapse in western countries. Our constitution – which many think is Wanjku’s document but, which in fact, is just a mirror reflection of the ‘progressive’ views of the civil society- is nothing but a morbid version of western laws. The feminists are winning big and soon, the Kenyan man will discover what feminism is all about(degrading men as much as possible, inculcate a sense of entitlement amongst women and use the courts to fix men).
I always say this: this ‘modernity’ nonsense will leave Africans in tears . To be modern should not be equated with feminism. The whole feminism agenda is driven by the need to usurp the natural order of things, especially the natural structure of the family unit. In a few years to come, men will see themselves dragged to the courts because of ‘looking at women suggestively, thereby inflicting mental torture’.
Why don’t we steal technological advancements from the west, customise them and use them to empower ourselves economically? Instead, we steal cultures- and their feminist laws therein- that we know little about and which don’t help us in anyway.
How have the so called women representatives helped women?
How have women who are represented by women MPs benefited?(Leave alone these nonsensical laws passed to ‘empower’ women; I believe a woman has the power to empower herself)
Who told black people in Africa that to look modernised and civilised, they have to adopt biased feminist laws from the west?
