Men Are Not Beasts

Men are not beasts, we still have some loving men out there. We still have some caring men who understand a lady’s heart and how to treat a woman. We still have men who can lay down their lives to protect a woman’s, those who can lay down their lives because they love you. Why then call all men beasts because one of them disappointed you? Because one of them molested you? Why generalise one man’s sin upon all others? The fact that one man made you cry does not make all men beasts and wicked just as you have concluded in your mind that all men are the same. If you conclude in this way it means all women are the same too because we have women who are good in assaulting men, who beat their husbands at home, women who are good in molesting and harassing men, women who fight men like hound dogs; women who are good at abusing men and rendering them useless to their family and to themselves.


These adorable women sit in the comfort of their homes to rant rubbish of men being beasts, of how men see them as nothing but pieces of trash in the street to be kicked here and there. And if care is not taken, you will discover that these kind of women have never in their life dated any man for more than a month without breaking up with him. They jump from one arm to another smothering their own feelings, seeking that perfect-made-in-heaven man, trying to know how faithful or how every man looks; never would you satisfy them. These confused women learn to generalise things. They know the best way is to sit around and teach innocent girls how to treat men. When you see them gather together, they talk about how to get men to  to their feet. Other things are not important to them than how to treat men like fools because they could not satisfy them in bed or because they could not live up to their standards. Now, must a man die trying to satisfy you both sexually and materially?


Let me remind us again if we have forgotten so soon; not all men beat their wives at home. Not all men are ‘two minute’ men. Not all men run from post to pillar. Those that do, I can guarantee you I do not know the substances they are made of.


Genesis I said that God made man in his own image and after his likeness. So if you claim that men are beasts that means their maker is also a beast. Those feminists that declared all men beasts, also mean that your father who gave birth to you is also a beast. All men are the same including your father, no exception; it is a fact. We cannot afford to sit back and allow them to say this and that and pass down these negative thoughts from one generation to another, our girls now seeing their fathers as lions that can pounce on their mothers at any time. They believe their fathers are those beasts released from the forest to devour them. They no longer have respect for their fathers. They no longer see us as men who are supposed to shepherd them like little lambs. They ignore advice from men because the stories told to them said that all men are rapists. Because a wrong message was passed to them of men who molest girls in the darkness and other men in turn become devils to them. Because they were told by someone out there that all men are the same. All men can play with their emotions, all men can molest them, all men can harass them sexually; all men can abuse them. These are lies from the pit of hell. All men are not the same.


Sometimes, we don’t need to prove to the world our worth. Sometimes, when a tale is told in the land of ladies about men, they should learn the art of research. The art of asking and not incubating that which was said into memory. Sometimes lies can be birthed from envy and jealousy towards the opposite sex.


Sometimes, you need to ask your mother why a particular situation in your family remains the way it is now. You have to ask your mother why she said your father is a monster and look deeply into her eyes for an answer. Ask her why she always fights your father at the slightest mistake. Ask her some questions about your family as a girl and watch her tell you something that would help build your own house. I think we should not believe all that proceeds from anyone’s mouth without making deliberate research on it.


In fact, there must be a reason why a man would raise his hands on a woman. I am not saying this to justify the actions of some men who beat their wives. We see feminists all around agitating for equality but have you asked yourself these questions?: What is the purpose of me becoming a feminist? What cause am I fighting for? Am I a feminist because my friends are? We need to be true to ourselves. We need to know where we belong, not running from pillar to post like footballers. Treat a right man right and he will treat you like the right lady of his dream. Not all men are beasts that devour women!
