Gender Parity, Equity and Allied Matters : Discourse 3.0

When a girl has bad characteristics she gets reprimanded in relation to her husband, to her marriage, not in relation to her being a human being. But the double standards is worse in that, when a boy has those traits, it’s not that it’s bad for a human being to have these traits; they put it under the umbrella of boys will be boys, men are like babies, they get what they want. But for a girl, oh you’re going to be someone’s mother, somebody’s wife, your mates are married… So you see a girl child being brought up, she’s being molded into a wife, so girls are brought up to be more responsible, to be someone who’s going to look after a family…And following to the assumption that men are like babies too, you’re basically bringing up a girl as someone who’s going to be looking after so many babies in the future, and you’re bringing up a man to be someone who can grow up and still be a baby.

THE JUSTICIABILITY OR OTHERWISE OF THE PROVISIONS OF CHAPTER TWO OF THE NIGERIAN CONSTITUTION: A DISCOURSE

The logic is what it is: logic. And a good one at that. (Chuckling). But fundamental rights cannot be implied. They must be specifically stated, especially in a jurisdiction where written law system is in place. Worse, the same constitution clearly makes it non justiciable. To my mind, the non justiciability of the Chapter is not in doubt. Lawyers have only devised a creative way of beating the hurdle by coming under similar provisions contained in other laws, international treaties domesticated by the National Assembly and Local laws.

THE ALCHEMIST – A Review

Here’s a profound narrative with deep insights. Our hero goes from shepherd to sales boy to caravan traveler to oasis dweller becoming different things to different people at different times, a crystal merchant’s good luck charm, an Englishman’s companion, Fatima’s beloved, the oasis’s forewarner, Alchemist’s disciple… all in the quest to realize his personal legend. If all’s well that ends well, then ‘The Alchemist’ is a beautifully written comedy.

Of Gender Parity, Equity and Allied Matters : Discourse 2.0

“Exactly. They are mutually exclusive and gender parity does not in any way, address the issue of gender discrimination. To me, it’s just the issue of a man (I hope feminists would not scream at me for using the word ‘man’), an orange and a tangerine. He treats the orange with respect, looks at it decently. However, he batters the tangerine and looks at it lewdly. This unfair treatment definitely won’t stop by the tangerine wanting to become an orange…”
