      REALLY??? You “GBAMED” that??? You actually supported that??? Na wa o. Why do some women support such archaic mentality to their detriment? And then when their husbands beat them silly, they will start pasting their abuse pictures on blogs. Anyway sha, as for me Men and women are created equal. And the minute we see ourselves as equal partners, the minute things between men and women in this country will change for the better
