    I saw that tweet Toke talked about a few weeks ago and I’m still furious at the lady for doing nothing but cry and report it to twitter.

    Shut up jo Mrs or Mz man this, man that!

    Which man’s world?
    If it was a man’s world, will you have any female commissioner, Deputy Governor, Governor,, Legislator, senator, minister,OAP, Celebrity, Model, and the likes

    Go to the Arab country where it is a man’s world where you cant drive a car, where you have and own nothing, where you dont have a view or where you cant even share your view on BN/Internet then you can talk about surviving there. Go to a typical northern entity where women are acquired and got no voice at all, then you can talk about surviving.

    Who is holding you down from anything?
    You can divorce your husband at will, no institution held you down
    You can post your vlog and share your views, no one hindered you
    You even have an opinion and you can share, no one hindering you from doing
    You can waka go all over the world, no one hindering you
    You can club/party smoke, drink, sleep with your colleagues in the ent. industry wtht anyone hindering you.
    You can buy a car, own a car, drive….talk on the radio, do your morning show, no on ehindering you
    You can wear all your open back, open chest, open nyash clothes, no one hindering you
    You can get endorsements, job from any outfit and no one hindering you

    So which survival in a man’s world again?

    Brain full of man this man thatt!

      Yes o. And before i begin i am not hating, i just want Toke to get out of her pink bubble once in a while.
      Man’s world or no man, this is a hard world even in places like the US or Norway (where u got the largest amount of women in politics and in the National Assembly, ) u have to sometimes put in extra effort. Even among women, u get it tough.

      Madam Toke, please try to be more appreciative. if u want more doors to open for you. God is blessing you and u come up with this? Or Are the blessings too small that u can’t show appreciation yet?What is surviving? is anyone oppressing/suppressing/pressing you? You are surviving more than who?

      Once in a while, not twice, just only once, try and visit motherless homes with abandoned HIV babies,go see terminally ill patients, go read the story of this guy (born) without legs but who is hustling as a mechanic here in Lagos (if i’m not mistaken) cos he refused to beg. I think there was a post about him some time ago. Visit homes of fellow-orphans and share experiences. Go to the slums of Lagos.

      By the way have u ever been to Maje’s place? (Delta,) precisely in the the creeks? na survival u want see? Pay a visit to the people who live around those creeks. Then come back and maybe we shall have an interesting discussion on survival and being grateful for what u got ,even if it seems insignificant at a first glance.
      You talk about surviving. Where exactly do/did u survive? In a private jet? In your recent trip to Miami?
      All the best in your endeavors,ma.

      If you don’t see gender discrimination everywhere you must be a man yourself or you have been brought up to accept that women are second class citizens.
      If I start to give examples I will be here all day!
      Its getting better but there is plenty room for improvement.

      I am with Toke on this one….
      Your examples are not relevant in this case. You didn’t understand the message she aims to share…
      You missed it…

      Until you go through inequality you will never understand. It does not matter whether we have females governors etc it still EXISTS. Comparing Nigeria to other Arabian countries does not make it better or favourable. INEQUALITY large or small is still INEQUALITY.

      Some men lack comprehension… and like Toke’s said they walk around thinking they are men but yet they do not understand it??
      I disagree with your comment and attack on Toke.

    “Call the police on his behind and let him also tell the police what he told you.”
    Huh! Which police? Nigerian police or UK police?
    Toke please don’t make me laugh.

    • Cant deal

      October 8, 2015 at 1:08 pm

      Yes call the police… an almost similar case happened to me and i reported to the police, at the end of it all he payed for all the rubbish he did. Report to the police and have a lawyer to back up your case.

    Nigerian Police!!! do not let me begin to narrate my story. i have simply given up on this gender issue, there is no winning. At the end of the day its a mind thing, just knowing who you are and they will unconsciously do your bidding. I often say that in my next life( just in case there is anything like that) i will come as a man, the victimization is very unbearable. As a single girl you still have your liberty but as a married woman huh.

    If they respond, be prepared to pay them bribe and hope that he is not a sexist too.

    Since it’s not a man’s world in Nigeria, perhaps you can tell us the number of women that make up the c Senate or the house of rep. Or the number of women appointed by Buhari or why sexual violence and misogyny is still prevalent in our country. Explain why children are still seen as belonging to the father instead of to both parents in our country. Explain why female enrollment in tertiary institutions remain low when compared to that of men or why female illiteracy is high. comparing Nigeria to Saudi Arabia should not be to absolve Nigeria of its gendered inequalities. Women remain second class citizens. And smoking and driving are not good indicators of women’s empowerment.

      Ijeoma, don’t mind them. Women are their own worst enemies.

    I do not understand all the attacks on Toke here o! I actually saw that twitter post and that Man was very lucky that it wasn’t my kind of personality that he met,because I would have entered my car started my engine and rammed into his car and then ask for his wife’s number.

    Man’s world??? I never knew the world was a man’s world ooo. Its everybody’s world just because a particular set are more domineering doesnt mean it belongs to them same way stealing something doesnt make it urs its same way the high rate of sexual inequality and discrimination against female doesnt make the world belong to men. And by the way Even Nigerian consitutn is nt favourable to women. Neither is the culture and the newest way women are subdued and oppressed today is 2ru religion. Maybe if Females spend lesser time dissing, hating and judgin eachoda we can move forward a little
