So I read about a female corper who was decamped in Delta state for slapping a male colleague. I tried to find out the guy's action that prompted her to slap him to no avail. Could it be that he touched her, said something nasty, a misunderstanding or an argument gone wrong? If he touched her, it could have been reflex but do you think that justifies the slap?
There was a debate as to whether or not the punishment was fair or harsh. Some ladies were quick to say the punishment was unfair for just a slap not minding what triggered it. Meaning even if she has anger issues, she shouldn't have been disciplined in such manner. How is a slap "just?" Aren't we hypocrites? Later we'll form feminists and share sad tales about men not treating us well. If it were the guy that slapped her, i'm sure he would have been crucified no matter his excuse for doing so. I've not seen feminists tweet against her action.
Getting physical is never allowed. There are better ways of expressing displeasure/anger or having an offender disciplined. It is rather shameful seeing a graduate metamorphose into a tout. What if the guy had beat her blue black before solders waded in? Some girls can be very saucy. They even brag about being rude. I pray you never cross paths with a seemingly gentle but ungentleman. You know he would have dealt with you well before people may rise to your defence?
Nobody should be hitting the other. Maturity, experiences and education should teach us to be calm and give us the ability to ignore, walk away and not dignify every foolish (in)action with a response. Thank you for reading. Have a good good week, Anuoluwapo.
P.S. Despite talks about men not appreciating or knowing the value of women, there are men who do. One of such men has sent in a post you don't want to miss.
