      Make this girl go wash the obante wey she wan wash na and just leave us alone. Me sef I no wan make anyone wash my obante. Its a private matter. As for staying out after 8PM, how we wan do the night vigil to keep Oga’s business running? My business empire nko? If I have to meet with a “fortune 10” client and the person say na only dinner im get time and na woman and I no be bisexual, make I no collect money put for our joint table? If I serve him too much, he will suffer mental handicap that can translate into a physical handicap. You know any part of your brain and body you dont use, you lose.
      BTW, what if the man just returned from hitting another punani. Should I also soil my hands with the mess by picking up the obante for the washing machine? Please Wasu, wash the pant of any man you want and leave the rest of us alone to find out what works for us.

      What? slavery in marriage? Why a wife should not cook is beyond my scope of understanding.It’s only Manginas,wimps and Simps can tolerate that nonsense from a wife.Due to feminism vast majority of men suppress their true self to avoid being judged or labelled misogynistic.(Should i say Gynocentric society).In today’s world masculinity is politically incorrect and now a dirty world.

      I have been saying this for a while men need to stop listening to women when they say what they want in a man because clearly women have no idea what they want.Men should ignore all disgruntled feminists and their unbelievable theories about men and laugh list of demands instead behave like real men.

      I have noticed women have taken their fuckery and buffoonery to the next level by refusing to cook for us or clean due to their careers,you see why i don’t encourage over ambitious wife.Many of them make this crystals clear that they have no interest in doing this due to their work schedule.And they say this “i don’t cook” like it’s a badge of honor.As a real man ,if a woman says she doesn’t cook there’s no reason for us to live under the same roof.

      There are certain things about a woman real men can over look but a woman not cooking for her man is a deal breaker for a real man.Most of them feel that all they need to do is bring sex to the table to satisfy a man,don’t do that to me i have side chicks that can satisfy my urges.It’s imperative that a woman should cook,clean and take care of the children.My father told me not to allow my woman accumulate power.It’s like giving Lion a gun and teaching the lion how to shoot.

    The sad truth is that all those shouting for equality this equality that, shoving the feminazi idealogies down on our throat, dont have a full grasp of what they are even talking about….when it comes down to been financially responsible, they all suddenly shift and go traditional, and you expect the men folk to take you seriously…..Abeg girl, tell dem to park well well first!!!

      December 30, 2016 at 1:53 pm

      @OJ , what are you talking about? I personally don’t know of any Nigerian home where the man is a 100% responsible financially for the home. Women contribute for rent, school fees , building homes and everything else. How many men in today’s economy here can say they pay all the bills? In fact I know of many homes in Nigeria women are the breadwinners and I’m saying this from experience . The thing is this society will tell the woman not to let it be known in public that she’s the breadwinner because of men’s ego( you know in Africa men are babies hiss) . So the woman will buy the car and then tell people her husband bought the car to massage his silly who. Then he will use that same car to go carry other chicks! You’ll see even families telling women to hand over their paycheck a to their husbands!

      Even in the marriages where the woman is the breadwinner majority still get treated like trash by their husbands who will not lift a hand to help. I actually think Nigerian men are the hypocrites, you want a wife who works and contributes financially ( your traditional roles) but you don’t want to reciprocate by taking on her traditional roles! How can that work? That is nothing but wickedness.

      December 31, 2016 at 3:41 am

      tell me about it!!! i grew up with my mom paying for 70% of everything we had.. before then she would tell us to always thank daddy..cant remember how i found out she was responsible for everything! from school fees, to holidays, to our current home just so we don’t lack!! but because my dad is the “man of the house” abi that entitled spirit some african men have they turn their partners to slaves
      feminism is all about equality to me.. i believe man and woman should find their balance on what works for them. so you answering chief, if you can put a roof under your wives head and cater to every need in the house then you look for a wife who wants to be domesticated. … all you men that want KING treatment but refuse to act like one ..i.e CATER TO EVERYTHING IN YOUR HOUSEHOLD!

      Hello OJ, please note that women contribute financially to the home. My mother did and 100% of the couples I know today do so. Many of them go as far as contributing more. I am yet to see a family were the man pays the bill for everything. Even my uncle that is rich, the wife still contributes money from her business.

    “As a wife you have no reason to be out after 8pm unless if it is work related/night shift. Stay away from single friends, bad company.”
    I’m okay with this as long as the man doesnt stay out after 8pm and also stays away from single friends, no matter how idiotic the latter sounds ?

    “He knows where the shoe rack is. Even if he leaves his shoes in the lounge, do not complain.”
    As long as I can leave my bra hanging on the front door without him complaining, then I’m also okay with this.
    Stupid. So I should not complain about untidiness and school-boy behaviour just because he has a penis? Okay.

    “A husband should be cooked for.His clothes and UNDIES washed and ironed. He should be pampered. He is the head of the house please.”
    Why should he be pampered because he is the head of the house? He should be pampered IN SPITE of it. Being the “head” shouldnt give you any privileges, I mean, isnt that what is expected of him? Just like I dont expect to be pampered even if I cook, wash his undies and ‘submit’ like the typical diminished, behind-the-scenes Nigerian housewife I’m supppsed to be.
    Wants to be the head, wants to be pampered. Wow. Talk about bratty entitlement.

    I know NIGERIAN MEN must be smiling and nodding their empty, chauvinistic heads in approval of this woman who has been brainwashed by the patriarchy.

      December 30, 2016 at 4:26 pm

      Most Nigerian men do not subscribe to the view that women are inferior to men and should be subservient to men. We are not nodding our heads in agreement. @A Real Nigerian, what on earth do you have against men? Do you have a dad? You hatred for men is mind-boggling and unconscionable.

    They have started again! BN is just pushing your buttons besides from what feminists preach, relationship isn’t even part of all that equality stuff they are fighting for but on BN, all feminist issues has to do with male female relationship.

    If you want to do all this for your husband, no one is saying you shouldn’t and if you don’t want to do it, no one is saying you should. I don’t get why women have to come and start shouting slavery, chauvinist and what’s that other stupid word they use to describe men. Marry the man that will tolerate you and that you will tolerate his excesses too and let everyone of us out here hear word abeg!

      “We troll feminists because its absurd, we laugh at the irony inherent in feminism”
      Neh. You’re not trolling for fun or laughs, you’re trolling because you actually feel threatened and you’re trying hard to make yourselves feel better about the fact that soon enough, you wont be able to undermine and suppress anymore, or at least your sons won’t.
      That’s the difference between KenM, u/_vargas_ type of trolling and u/unidan type of trolling. Or to be more precise, the difference between r/twoxchromosomes trolls and subscribers to r/incels and r/truecels. “Troll” and “Subscriber”. And you’re a subscriber to the Patriarchy and Chauvinism no matter how hard you try to mask it. ?

      I don’t feel threatened. I know what’s coming, Look in any campus classroom, men dominate the hard sciences, computer engineering, maths, economics. You know, the top earning professions, then I see all those women in languages and Education, my heart breaks a little. The vast majority of profitable companies are still run and founded by men. Has a woman managed to even become governor??

      Worse, even in the decadent west, a backlash (manlash??) against the third-wave is already starting. I look at the trends and I don’t feel particularly threatened. As resources get more scarce, male value will only increase.

    African women like this make me laugh. Our grandmothers and mothes did this and more for their men but it never stopped them from marrying other wives, beating them etc. neither did it make them treat them well. We are the women who do the most for our men and yet they treat us like sh1t . There are things you can do to a woman in Africa that won’t be tolerated anywhere else in the world. And that didn’t happen by chance. Women elsewhere fought hard to be treated well.

    At least even Arab women get to stay at home like queens while their women shop but we African women are worked like donkeys- you will see women with kids on their backs doing farm work while their hubbies relax. And people don’t see the need for feminism? Can this woman even be confident that while she’s washing her husband’s undies he’s not busy taking off other women’s undies? Cos we all know African men are given a hall pass to cheat as they please.

    there is a lot of rhetoric and rubbish floating on the inter webs regarding women’s rights and gender equality. people whose minds have not evolved are still putting their mouth, case in point. all that is important to know is: is this fair? is that the way i want to be treated? until we are all free, NONE OF US ARE TRULY FREE, and that includes the current privileged gender. if you abhor inequality in life, in general: then you would see the conflict in gender inequality, and you would not need female genitalia to feel empathy and sense of justice. Everyone who goes along with it is just desperate to keep the status quo going so as to continue to enjoy unearned privilege, unaware that change is here anyway, and that shi* is slowly eroding. You can either rise up and walk up right, and evolve or…well lets just see what will happen.

    I can see that most of the comments here are from unmarried individuals. Please as a married man and a father of 2, i see no reason why a man can’t and shouldn’t help his WIFE with domestic, school runs, and still maintain the large financial burden with the help of his wife. Few nigerian men are still not matured and are apparently living based on what people might say. Marriage is all about compromise, understanding, wisdom, God’s grace and love for each other. Biko my fellow nigerians don’t treat your wife anything less you will treat yourself nor you will wish for your sister.
    Before anyone kills me here, i bring the fat cash in the house, whilst my wife uses her salary to pay the monthly house rent and i take care of the nursery fees of my kids, feeding, utility bills, welfare of the house, car insurance fuel, wife expenses, and every other financial needs in the house.

    Nothing is actually wrong with anything the young lady has said..EXCEPT of course if she believes these acts of service only apply to a woman.
    Why are we so against the the very mention of “service”. It should be every humans life mission to be of service to each other not just in marriage.
    I have no problem serving my future husband, in fact I joyfully look forward to it….BUT i would NEVER marry a man who couldn’t serve me with equal zest and joy.
    In fact it is my pleasure to please and serve any human being …as long as pleasing youwill not displease my God.
