No One Cares

I too wish to believe this one million dollar looking woman, who happens to earn as much as a salary cares about women like you and me, but no one pushes  and advocates for something without an original evil sinful hidden motive and agenda, just like George Bush and Tony Blair whom their original agendas and motives for starting the Iraq war wasn’t to liberate the world from the tyranny of Saddam Hussien and his weapons of mass destruction, this woman sitting in front of you who looks like a ‘Vogue’ magazine model , who claims to be fighting for your rights, doesn’t care about your existence and your rights at all.

 

If we just had the guts and backbone to stand up and question thoroughly those who descend upon our lives with their shiny campaigns/plans while they all have hidden motives and agendas, our lives might have taken a different course.

 

Have you ever questioned why a million dollar looking woman, who have so much money sitting in her bank account, wearing latest jewellery/makeup, came from a beauty salon/spa, who can see with her own eyes how poverty had aged you at a young age,  what illness had done to you, bruises on your face from being beaten by an abusive father/husband/parent/relative or brother, who sees how poverty had crippled you, what malnourishment had done to you, who can see your worn out shoes or even bare feet, why had she chosen to not fight to put food in your belly, dress on your back, education in your brains, save you from abuse, money/job in your hand, but instead said to you ‘When we stop them from cutting your female genitals, your life will turn around!’, is that what will liberate you my sister, give you back your dignity, humanity and make you an equal to her?!

I Am Not Your Sister!

Finally after decades of fighting patriarchy & religious extremism, the feminists worldwide & those camps whom were being at war against each-other, seems that they have found peace among themselves & a common cause; a holy war that they can fight together; THE LIBERATION OF THE FEMALE VAGINA!

 

The feminists worldwide , patriarchy & religious extremists want to free the female vagina!

Feminists worldwide want to live like loose whores, & therefore they want their condoms & access to abortions!

Religious extremists, the patriarchy with 4 wives & the likes who follow in their footsteps & want to remarry, want to put to an end FEMALE GENITAL CUTTING, so they can have  QUALITY & STEAMY SEX!

Amid all the tragedies that surround women/girls the only cause that seems worth their time, is the women’s vagina!

I can’t tell you the number of times those groups that pretend to care about women/girls & the falsely religious had denied me work because am not interested in their obscene & loose causes while neglecting ending (Poverty among women, violence, unemployment, illiteracy, women slavery, sexual slavery, denying women their rights & other evils) that are committed against women!

 

 

 

God Save Us From Ourselves

I was listening to a renowned scholar talking about the aim of marriage, and couldn’t stop myself from trying to find out if everyone or majority of folks share his same views on the purpose of marriage, so:

Do you think that the most important aims of marriage are just ‘Companionship and breeding’?!

If your answer is yes, I think you are depriving and denying yourself from experiencing one of the most beautiful and noble emotions that has ever existed ‘Love’, and you are not doing yourself justice because you have a right to seek love, be loved and give love to your loved one.

I always loved that part of the ‘Christian/Western’ wedding vows when couples say to one another ‘To Love and Cherish!’

Just as my love to God makes me bear whatever tests he puts me through and maintain my faith, loving your other half enables you to stand solid throughout your relationship with them and face everything with them happily and firmly be it (Illness, poverty, challenge, hardship and obstacle.)

A book, cat, dog, gardening, your friends, TV, work or even yourself if you enjoy solitude can provide you with company, it is not a very wise step to marry someone because you are looking for company!

We are not machines or robots to let go of our emotions; the great ones like love, and just to your knowledge they are making now robots that can express emotions and give back love to their owner!

In Islam when describing the relationship between spouses the lord says ‘و جعلنا بينكم مودة و رحمة, meaning (and He has put love and mercy between your (hearts)), I think all religions place so much great emphasis upon love.

I have heard a number of folks especially accomplished men who place a great emphasis when talking about marriage on the ‘Companionship and breeding’ side, and from my perspective I regard this as unfair for those in favour of such notions and their partners.

Lack of love will make us commit many inhumane and uncivilized actions against our partners; can you imagine what unloving spouse can do to their partner if the relationship fails?!

Some who lack the courage and love to inform their partner face to face that the relationship isn’t working anymore can choose to send that via a TWEET!

Let us mend our relationships and perspectives and choose love over anything else every time!

Finally, I don’t know where we are heading to when we subtract love from the equation of life and marriage, may God save us from ourselves!

Eating the Other: Desire & Resistance-Bell Hooks

 

To make one’s self vulnerable to the seduction of difference, to seek an encounter
with the Other, does not require that one relinquish forever one’s mainstream
positionality. When race and ethnicity become commodified as resources for pleasure,
the culture of specific groups, as well as the bodies of individuals, can be seen as
constituting an alternative playground where members of dominating races, genders,
sexual practices affirm their power-over in intimate relations with the Other.
