Holla blog family.... How una dey, se wa daada(how are you, hope you are good)... I so love translating yoruba and pidgin English (it makes me feel responsible)... So is it me or has any other person wondered why an inferior "hybrid" of the Queen English and an indigenous language is called pidgin English. Why not igbo English or Nigeria English? If you have an answer to that drop it in the comment box.
So to today's post. A couple of my girlfriends were reading yesterday... The course happened to be a literature course ... It was about various theory that has been used to criticism literature works and English in general. Now the problem is she seem to lack interest in feminism and she was quite vocal about her dislike of feminist both writer and activists. As u was in an argument with her and I never loose an argument I refuse to see her point even though she made no point in particular but the entire universal was making a point for her. I realise she knew nothing about the real point of the feminist movement and what she knows she got from what she is fed by the Internet daily.
We have the 'free the nipples campaign' where few jobless women decided it is okay for them to bare their breast. The mistake they made however is baring their chest under the guise of feminism(equality between man and woman). Now I have no issue with a girl deciding to walk about naked but please don't force it down our throats.
And the newest one is ladies loosing their tampons and pad or whatever they use to protect themselves from getting stained during their monthly menstrual period. This is not just stupid but disgusting. I don't understand why anyone would want to do that. Is it for the 15 minutes of fame or humiliation in most cases(but any form of publicity is acceptable right?) .
If I myself didn't know better I would say the entire feminist movement is a joke. Am patiently waiting for the next lugubrious theory this so called feminist would resurrect.
So what do you think of this right the 'modern' 21st century feminist are clamouring for? Do tell.
