I shared a post yesterday regarding rape and how sex has ruined a lot of lives because they think in the direction of their blood flow and emotions, not with their heads. You can read about it here: Say No To It, Please.
I am glad a lot of people can relate to it not because they have witnessed it but because they have heard one or two stories about it and I enjoyed every comment from all those who shared their thoughts on it. It is a menace to the society which we need to nick in the bud but we are the ones to do it, not by jungle justice but by calling those people out, shaming them rather than the victims till we all get to the point where we can see it as abnormal because many people have seen rape as normal which shows how terrible the human race has fallen.
The world is a better place when we kick start our conscience and there is no better court than the court of conscience. We seem to accept just about anything as long as the government turns a blind eye. The truth is the government will always turn a blind eye. They don't even care about the citizens and the best we are good at is the votes; that's even if it counts.
There are a lot of things the government overlook and rape is top of that list and it's sad because it all stems from the fact that as humans we don't place value on the lives of others and our government tops that. They would rather value the lives of livestock than that of humans and if you live in Nigeria you will understand this better.
Another issue we need to deal with as humans - the issue with domestic violence. It is horrible, to say the least because someone incapable of holding his fists cannot be capable of loving. How do we go from declaring undying love for one another and on the flip side we are throwing bottles and stuff and even fisting against each other when we are not training for the Olympics? Even if you are training for Olympics, does it have to be with your spouse?
Only cowards perpetuate domestic violence because they won't be able to take the fight against another man and they see the woman as easy prey. It has come to my notice as well that even women perform this act but their percentage is just lower compared to men. It's not a good thing to deal with because it shatters the world of those who are in it.
Domestic abuse can also be in form of emotional abuse as long as it is something that demoralizes and makes the other person feel worthless then it's not worth it. I don't understand the rationale behind it as well. Does it mean that most people just want to flex their ego because they feel inadequate? I think so... Most people who feel a lack of love for themselves would naturally seek someone to mirror their frustration on so they can at least feel "in control" but it's not the way to live. It's a shameful way to live and what a coward act it is.
We need to speak up and help one another. A lot of people would say it's not their business because issues with couples are hard to meddle in and I've always held that thought too until you start hearing of how a woman died leaving her husband behind with children due to domestic abuse. And for those who were caught, the child becomes an orphan in a way since there is no father figure anymore and the mother is dead and buried which makes them be at the mercy of other family members who don't care about how they turn out. It's a horrible thing to think about which is why we need to save lives by voicing out.
We should create awareness as humans to educate people. Most people wouldn't want to come out due to fear, lack of safety, threat and even the weird thought of having their significant half change for the better because it's a woman thing to do to hold the family together. No, that's wrong... It's a woman thing to do to live as well, so enduring domestic violence is not in a way to prove your ability to hold your family together. Holding your family together means teaching them how to be strong by making bold decisions with your children in mind. Your children would thank you for it later in the future, even your family members for staying alive for them and fighting to live.
Don't turn a blind eye to injustice and anything that rips another human of the sanctity of living. No one is above the other and no one should feel inferior to another. We are all equal and should be treated as such. We all have equal rights to live and no one should get battered all in the name of love.
Most people who do this act hardly love their spouse as they claimed and I feel they only love the idea of having someone closer so they can control that person. It's the need for control for them rather than nurturing a blossoming love. We don't have to sweep everything under the carpet which is why it's important to love with our head and heart rather than just with our hearts.
Say no to rape, say no to domestic violence or any kind of act that makes another human worthless. You are important and special, don't ever forget that even if the world tells you who you are not, remind them of who you are.
"I don't know who my grandfather was but I am so concerned with who his grandson would be" so you should be too. That's my closing quote. Maybe I would start adding closing quotes to my posts now, sounds cool, yeah?
