Left right and centre, you hear women crying for their rights not to be overlooked and for them to be treated with respect. Almost every speech delivered by women in this month (August) is all about showing respect, love and kindness to women. I think this message needs to be repeated time and again until it gets into men's head, until such time when a man sees a woman the message plays itself on his head.
Just like men, women too are humans, they are God's creation and He loves them the same way He loves men. It is just that they may be not as physically strong as men and too emotionally than men.
However, with them having the same rights as men they need to know themselves and their positions too. I think it is time now women start behaving like women; they are our mothers so they need to act like mothers. If one looks at the way our mothers wear, it is disgusting. They walk on streets half naked; it is difficult these days to differentiate good women from prostitutes for their attires are all the same. To make it worse, even in churches, the most respected houses on earth, you find women wearing revealing dresses and/or tops that reveal their cleavages. I sometimes think that before a woman buys a jean and/or any trouser, she gets into the fitting room, wears it and bend over to see if her buttocks will be left out clear for every man to see. If the jean does not do that, she will change it until she gets a jean that reveals her buttocks.
Those that are interested in watching music videos will agree with me when I say that the dance moves done by women these days are totally out of line. Let's look at the recent story on the news of Miley Cyrus, this is a woman that needs all respect and dignity yet she herself does not do it to her own self. She is not the only woman with disgusting dance moves, most of women have and do these awful dance moves.
Do not get me wrong here, I know you have the rights to wear whatever you want, but can't you do it in a manner in which it show us men how you would like to be treaded? Can't you dance in a manner in which it show respect to your own selves? I am not saying that all women are doing this, but it looks like most of South African women do.
For this reason I think it is time women stop crying for respect, love and to be shown kindness. First you need to show love to yourselves, be kind and show respect to yourselves. It is then that you will ask us to do so if we don't. Like I said, you are our mothers, a responsible mother will under no circumstance sit in front of her kids half naked and/or wearing clothes that reveal her panties and will not do these disgusting dance moves we see on TV's in front of them. A woman who does it is irresponsible and must under no circumstance ask her kids to respect her. So are you South African women, we men are your children, treat us like you would to your own child (boy). The message of respecting, loving and showing kindness to women need not to be preached verbally, but also to be shown to us by the people who require it.
