What Twitter NG is saying about DJ Cuppy’s Comments on Feminism

DJ Cuppy has been trending all day for her comments on feminism on City Fm.

“I used to consider myself a feminist until I realised that I didn’t really understand it… I don’t like people that are hypocrites. People that are out there talking about women’s rights and women’s issues but behind closed doors, are doing crazy things,” she had said.

“If we go around as women, trying to change the way men think, we’re going to tire ourselves out,” she says, adding that women should not focus on “changing the way men think about us” but focus on “our own energy, our own selves, and achieving our own goals,” she added.

    I watched the video. The Alade market comment was so uncalled for. Some of us know that we are privileged to pursue our dreams even though we still have our own limitations. However, we also know that there are many like us who are not even privileged to pursue those dreams in the first place. We speak for those women, we also encourage them to speak for themselves. There is nothing wrong with that. Also, personal development and voicing out are not mutually exclusive concepts. That was such a selfish thing to say.
    It’s just sad that women you root for……
    I won’t hate you because of what you said but naturally it’s difficult to support someone you know wouldn’t do the same for you.

    LOL at the airhead who had to search for two white European women in their 50s-60s to brandish as “powerful women” that rejected feminism. He cannot even name the Croatian president, but we’re supposed to learn something from her not being a feminist.

    I wonder why people did not / do not say “I am not a human rights activist…” after all previously disadvantaged races have representation in politics, business, arts and so on. But we know that even with the great strides that have been made, there are still injustices either overt or covert faced by people who are or have been viewed as lesser in the society. Whether we want to label it as feminism or something else the goal should be ensuring that we celebrate our differences and allow everyone to thrive equally regardless of age, gender, race, religion or whatever other labels that seem to keep dividing us. If only we lived in a perfect world.

    Seems I am not a feminist will annoy a lot of feminist. But I ain’t scared, I am not a feminist.

    Everyone has a right to self-expression. I don’t get why people are almost bursting an artery because a person said she’s not a feminist. We all don’t have to agree to the same ideals or see issues through the same prism. And you certainly don’t need to identify as a feminist to help women. Like the smart chap said, it is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.

    Live and let live.

    The point is that many people do not know what Feminism is about really. Ladies should stop making a fuss about feminism and how disadvantaged they think they feel. Re-orient yourself, set your standards and value yourself, know your limits, get educated and read wide, strive to be the best in everything you do, know thyself!….when all these things are done, the issue of feminism won’t even be lauded like it is. Women are their own problems because they are so lax and expect everything to go their way. Someone even said that feminists paved the way for DJ cuppy to be where she is today!…that is the most annoying thing i’ve ever heard. Abeg make i stop here jare i’m already getting worked up.

    So feminism or to not feminism is now our problem in Nigeria? We dont have basic amenities, security, avenues to get funds for business, health care, a plan for agriculture (instead of importing food), proper judiciary and legislative reform , fight against corruption and the least goes on.
    We do best is stay distracted and hope by what ever grace these magically sort themselves out while we focus on DJ Cuppy’s personal feelings! Chai!
