An Igbo lady, Emmanuella has taken to her Facebook to state how patriarchy and misogyny live in a lot of Igbo men. Read her post below and let us know your thoughts:
These days, I avoid a whole lot of Igbo men.
If I am to hangout with a guy and he’s Igbo, chances are that I will give him flimsy excuses why I wouldn’t make it.
Sorry to say this but Patriarchy and Misogyny resides in a higher percentage on Igbo men than other tribes.
Please, this is coming from MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE before you quote me.
Imagine asking a male Igbo Colleague to please help me get a glass of water. Guy was already standing by the water dispenser. Guy says he’s a Traditional Igbo man with Chieftaincy Title. A woman cannot send him message. 🙄🙄
Majority of the times, I avoid certain conversations with Igbo men. They must always play that Patriarchial card.
Another one once told me it’s not the duty of his wife to LOVE him…but to RESPECT him.🙄🙄
The way they carry this respect thing on their head eh…
Another one told me that beating a woman is for corrective measures. To correct her so that next time, she won’t repeat whatever she must have done wrong.
Now these men are not less than 35 years old on the Average.
I meet people regularly, guys to be precise…so I know what I am saying. This is coming from my personal statistics.
Most of the Igbo guys end up pissing me off.
I vow not to see them again. 😬😬
One also once told me that no matter how hard a woman tries to convince the man otherwise, the final decision on Certain Issues still rests on the man. He has the final say.
Their mentality when it comes to man and wife is disturbing.
More like a marriage cage…where the lady almost has no say.
As per ‘Oh Yes My Lord.’
Please If you are an Igbo man on my list and we plan on meeting…drop all that misogynistic tendencies at home. Flow with me as a human. Because we were first humans before too much power was bestowed on men.
Again, flow with me as a human.💕
And YES, I am an Igbo lady writing this.
I only shared my Personal Experience. It might be different from yours.
