#mydressmychoice

Jambo!

So I really didn’t want to have to write about this. I feel like there have been so many articles and blogs about it so I didn’t want to regurgitate what others have said, especially after the protest. I had so much hope in the men in this country that after all the campaigns against their actions, they might actually realize their wrong and change. Seems my hopes will just remain dreams that will only come to pass through divine intervention.

But, I came across this yesterday.

And this today.

And of course, the videos of the actual victims that I won’t share out of respect.

What bothers me is that these men will never understand unless they walk in our skirts.Those ladies SHOULD NOT SHARE ANY BLAME simply because of how they were dressed. It’s like telling a rape victim it wouldn’t have happened if she had come home early. Yet, if a man walks home late, he will just be robbed and that’s it. They never have to worry about rape until they go to prison, and learn what happens when you drop the soap. This is why they will never understand how it feels to be a victim. The men doing this clearly don’t have any respect for their mothers or daughters. Every woman is someone’s mother, wife or daughter. What happens when your friends decide to strip your mother? Will you fight them then or still join them?

Personally, if I were to strip any guys it would be those that wear their trousers below their asses. Clearly, they want to show more right? I think I could get away with that, so I won’t just strip their jeans off but their boxers as well because that’s what they wanted to show me when they were sagging. *eyes rolling* That’s the exact same logic in reverse. This is the logic we can’t carry into 2030. This is why we elect the same leaders we know are going to steal from us. This is why women are always being taken advantage of and are never being treated fairly. If you feel someone is indecent, donate clothes for them to cover themselves or make a formal report of indecent exposure at the police station.

ACT LIKE THE CIVILIZED PERSON YOU CLAIM TO BE. THINK LIKE A PERSON BIRTHED AND RAISED BY A WOMAN.

Meanwhile, somewhere in NYC

I wonder what would happen if they tried to strip her. . .

So, dear gentlemen, which do you prefer?
