Tolerance is a two-way street

2017-12-21 06:00

THE topic of gender-based violence has reference.

While I totally support moves to eradicate this terrible behaviour, it must be said that many women do not guard the way they speak to their men.

Screaming like a banshee, hurling insults and choice words that cut deep, only serve to emasculate their men and destroy self-esteem.

Tolerance is a two-way street, and ladies, the next time you want to rant, do it in the mirror with your phone on voice note - these two things can’t hit back and will show you the ugly reality of what others see and hear.

When done, go and give your man a hug. After all, you know only too well that actions speak louder than words.
