“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.”

— Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

Who taught our boys dressing like gangsters is cute?




Who should be blamed for the fashion sense of our young men.  Some people say the media, others absentee fathers and lack of education regarding self respect. 
How can our young men dress like criminals and not be expected to be treated like one. 
It might sound discriminatory but when last have you walked on the streets, moving around in fear because you do not know if the young man with the hand kerchief tied across his face, hair disheveled, facial features permanent contorted into a grim and ferocious glare is just a disaffected young man and not a marauding gun man. 
Just imagine if you were a police officer and saw somebody like that on the street, especially with that gangsta gait. We would cry and say he was an innocent boy who dressed like a thug. 

 Who taught our boys that behaving like a bad man is an attractive element? What culture mislead our boys into thinking only true validation they can get from their peers or society is by creating suffering and violence? Why is it that our young men chivalry, decency and honesty  as signs of weakness than nobility and strength. Where did we go wrong with our boys?
