I’m totally disgusted and flabberwhelmed at the way some people reason, so much so, it makes me wonder, what’s the point?! What’s the point of sharing your sadness, even your happiness with these group of people?… Let alone anyone.
After reading Sugarbelly’s story, and how she recounted her rape ordeal at 17, I felt nothing but pride for her, for being able to summon courage to talk about. For crying out loud, she was 17!…fresh from Loyola College. Everyone knows how Loyola grooms people, no matter how rebellious that child is!
Is it a crime for an adolescent to have a crush or ‘idolize’ someone she thinks she’s in love with?! It doesn’t matter when she decides to talk about it, at least she’s talking about it! For crying out loud, she’s on a path to self-discovery and recovery. If this is the only way she can heal, so be it.
Nigerians are so fond of addressing a woman by the way she looks or dresses. So fast in passing judgement just because she wears a mini-skirt, parties and probably even has a boyfriend. So what, she lived life on the fast lane… She’s still a woman, a human being with rights! Does that give anyone the right to take advantage of such a woman that society has chosen to label?
Please, it’s high time, we start naming and shaming it! Rape is Rape, whether physical, emotional or psychological!
A big shame to all the women who are fast in calling another woman a ‘prostitute’…please define it! Is this the time for you as a woman to judge negatively or to reach out to her who needs your support?!
I don’t know who this Sugarbelly is, but I commend your courage. You are the voice of other young girls who are in a similar situation but don’t know how to get out.
If you are a mother and you are among the women calling Sugarbelly names, now is the time to look at your daughter and ensure that she doesn’t go through the same ordeal…because my dear, whether you like it or not, your daughter is a GIRL-CHILD!
My final advice to Sugarbelly, is that she should totally ignore people’s negativities and keep spreading words of counsel to girls in similar SEX SLAVERY, all in the name of love! Yes, O… A lot of girls are SEX SLAVES and don’t know it.
When a woman keeps engaging in sexual activities against her will, just because she is doing ‘it’ with her boyfriend, she is a SEX SLAVE!
