“The idea that sex is something a woman gives a man, and she loses something when she does that, which again for me is nonsense. I want us to raise girls differently where boys and girls start to see sexuality as something that they own, rather than something that a boy takes from a girl.”

What has happened to our Jamaican Young Men?
people blame absentee fathers and negligent mothers for the dysfunctional males that we have running around our Jamaican communities creating mayhem, murder and moaning!
What about education? A man who has never learnt to think for himself will forever be a slave to the philosophies of others. Our young men do not want to read. They prefer to listen to toxic music that they embrace of wholesome ideologies than entertainment.
Why are so many young men smoking Ganja?
Many contend that the smoking of marijuana gives them a respite from the harsh realities of their lives. Everybody want to be in the bling and flossing world! Everybody want big house and big vans to roll into but nobody wants to work for it. Everybody wants it to come as easily as it does in the movies where all bad men are wealthy, dress well, eat well and have the best cars while the cop drives some broken down mobile.
They young men who have broken the mould and become successful are afraid of the grime of the ghetto.They want to be as far away as possible from the young men that they grew up with for fear that envy and jealousy will cause them to kill them. So they do not come back to the ghetto hence the young boys have few role models. No one to look up to of esteemed character because all the good people that leave, never comes back!
I wanna sleep will continue this tomorrow
