Re: After Women’s Day Celebrations

  /   in Vista   /   Comments

It was a nice surprise to have reactions from men on this topic. I hadn’t expected any, because, usually, women’s issues are not regarded serious matters in this country. Once in a while, a few concessions concerning women may be made to ‘humour’ them/ ‘keep’ them quiet, but at no time, so far, are women’s issues taken up with a lot of concern and commitment. However, if men feel obliged enough to write in, concerning our issues, there’s hope for the future. They probably are beginning to realize that we do matter in the scheme of things.

Madam, husbands that beat up their wives or abuse them verbally, are simply mad. They are crazy, because they tend to forget that their wives bear and nurture their children, cook for them, wash their clothes, keep their houses clean and keep them warm on their beds. This sort of men should be detained in Psychiatric hospitals until they are cured of their madness and finally jailed for assault and battery, to serve as a deterrent to others.
