"A piece of my mind.
Some men live their lives in paradox.
They want a virgin. They seek that purity as if it would cleanse them of all their sins.
But in the same mind, they want to fuck every girl. They believe they have a right to it.
After all, he believes he is a man. And there is no evidence of his virginity lost.
As if the God he believes in does not see all which he says and does.
Turns around to call that same girl dirty, a slut, a whore.
As if he was not right there by her side, hands covered in the ‘dirt’. As if sex determines any humans worth.
As if the act were inherently dirty and it was not him who made it dirty.
As if he was a victim, lured in, and incapable of controlling his own desire.
As if he did not know that their culture would never forgive her but treat him as a hero.
He should know, In akhira (in the end) we are all the same.
Some men want other men to treat their mothers, sisters and daughters with respect.
But in the same mind, they turn around and congratulate their friends for sleeping with any woman.
After all, he believes they are men. And nothing can dirty a man.
As long as shes not related to him, its okay. He forgets, kama toodinah toodan (what goes around comes around).
As if the only time you should respect a woman is for her patriarchs.
Her father, he brother and every other is worthy of respect but her. No, not her.
She is reduced to the space between her legs.
It is her value and her downfall.
It is her insult and her praise.
It is her dehumanization.
As if God who created her had no bigger plans for her at all.”
