What is happening to our women?

16 September 2012, 09:13
Girls are having sex at 14yrs old and most of those are falling pregnant before age 16. ;- A national study commissioned by the Department of Social Development said.



Our children have sold their beings to western materialism. They have lost the essence of Africanism because they hold it in lesser regard to western culture.



But where do these kids get this from?



Well, look no further than their older sisters...When you consider how commercialised relationships have become.

As a man, money defines every relationship. Come month end, any Tom, Dick & Jabulani will tell you that you, at least, have to cover the basics;

- Weave - R450

- Nails, Eyelashes - R120

Diplomatic prostitution is what I call it.



I'm not saying all woman do this, I'm not even saying most women do this. All I'm saying is that a lot of women do it!



The morals of our society continue to denigrate into nothingness whilst our leaders shove Neo-Liberal policies, norms and standards down our throats.

Ask any of our Azanian sisters why they want a white wedding and the immediate response is that "it's every girls dream." When you ask what is the substance, value and significance of a "White Wedding" you will never get an answer.

Yet those very same brides do not want to submit themselves, any longer, to "uku-kotiza!". They are quick to label that significant and integral part of the African Tradition as "old fashioned."



The constant need to undermine themselves by religiously subscribing to fake hair, fake nails and fake eyelashes speaks volumes about the inferiority complex that exits within the psychological constructs that overshadow our society.



If only our Azanian sisters would know and learn to appreciate the ideology of Black Conciousness.



To learn that; black is beautiful.



Love and Respect your self before you expect a man, whom you've never even seen before, to do the same!



Perhaps, you my sister, will consider that before rendering yourself a Nandos Full Chicken just for a pair of shoes!

Zuma is not the problem

What amuses me is the way people think that if the Zuma goes the problem will be fixed… I am an old ex-factory worker who is looking at the frenzied hand wringing round the no confidence debate and its inevitable outcome.  Read more...
