      Are you a man or a woman? Please enlighten me
      I honestly thought you were a woman. You should be able to match on their behalf.

    this is actually quite sad.
    i see in his eyes the intent behind what he is doing and Nigeria needs more than a march. He is saying something that a lot of us are listening to but it is just going way past our heads. A few days ago, I was reading about the man who invented computers ( as we know it today) Alan Turing and he was a homosexual – feel free to stop using computers if it disgusts you that a gay man invented something so revolutionary. I read about his chemical castration (homosexuality was by law equal to rape and murder; punishable by chemical castration ) which led to his suicide. Today they don’t chemically castrate people for being gay, we’ve been taught to hate and tear each other down…

    sometimes I wonder what this life is. . . . .
    what if God put the world in turmoil so we could all learn to love?

    Just because you think/assume you are a “woman” I don’t even think it’s in a FAGGOT’s place to tell a woman what to do.

    I get what he is trying to accomplish. The women need to rise up in addition to having full support of men too

    “But I also realised that as a man, it is not my place to initiate such idea.”

    I would like to understand the basis of this argument that a man can’t initiate a march for women solidarity. I really do not see anything wrong in men who are supportive of women’s rights taking up the cause for them. More reasonable men like this should be welcome in this fight. I would really like to hear the opposing arguments to this.

      I think it’s the male privilege. Truly it’s up to women, Nigerian women, to dictate what they will stand for. It’s a good move really. Now many Nigerian women do March and protest and demonstrate, we just don’t always hear or read about it.
