It is well understood that Nigerians are creative especially when it comes to humour which has placed us in the position of the happiest people on earth despite our suffering as a nation, so we have recently come up with the acronyms SMAN for the male folk and SWAN for the female folk.
As hilarious as this might be, it has many lessons to teach us depending on which side one wants to look at.
I will like to look at it from the perspective of BLAME GAME for the men and HOW WOMEN VALUE THEIR BODY for the women.
Let me begin with the men by taking us back to Adam our first Man and Father, when God asked him '' Adam where are you'' instead of answering the question asked he first of all blamed God for the woman He gave him and shifted the responsibility of his misbehaviour to the woman. And I have grown up to know that 'it's a Mans world as has been portrayed from the family, the different Religions and to leadership and politics of which the men have been the major controlling factor. You and I know where we have brought our world to with our male centred leadership and perhaps in our subconscious mind something higher than us is asking ''Man where are you or what are you doing'' and like Adam the men have started pushing the blame to the fact that all their money is spent on women so for that reason they are not able to cope with the challenge they have of taking care of the world as was handed over by their creator. So for them to function properly and as a coping mechanism they have to stop giving money to women (being stingy). Well you may be right because even Adam was correct when he said it is the woman you gave me that gave me the fruit and I ate but first of all have you taken time to answer the most important question. WHERE ARE YOU AND WHAT HAVE YOU DONE.
For the women it is rather sympathetic from your logo that you have reduced your self worth to what you do with your body for money. For God's sake that is not what you where created to do in this world, you where created because God wanted a companion for man, a helpmate in a relationship or partner for man. It's very shameful because from the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks and it has shown clearly where our values lie, in the exchange of our body for money. The man giving money and the woman giving her body. It's also good that this has come up at this time maybe it will help expose our hidden intrinsic belief and perhaps help to reorientate us and correct our motives for better relationships and give value not only to our human dignity as persons but to family life which is fast erroding. May God help us.
