These barbarians have not only lost their sense of history but are a living example of man’s inhumanity to man when greed is given a free reign. Slavery, Religious wars, Racism, Sexism, Tribalism, Homophobia, Biphobia, Transphobia, Apartheid, "Ghana Must Go" era , Garrissa killings, Boko Haram, Durban killings, South Africa and its rising Xenophobia... trying so hard not to lose hope in our shared humanity.

Greed is a strong driving force for hatred and a reliable tool of capitalism. Remember, the world has enough for everyone’s needs but not enough for everyone's greed. However, not all the greed and ignorance flying around can take away my hope for a better world.

These thoughtless killings hurt but I will not let it send me into depression. I won’t sacrifice my hope and love on the altar of their greed and ignorance. In the fight for our humanity, hate won’t win as long as we have a strong sense of social justice and are committed to creating a better world in our daily actions. Every little helps, do your part to spread Love, not Hate.

Also, I think Jesus said something about quenching the thirst of its followers forever, I guess there won’t be a need to drink water. I do wonder why many Christians on my social network are quick to inform me that when I languish in hell begging for a drop of water, they would majestically stare down at me from their heavenly seat and not give me a drop to drink. I get this a lot from self-righteous Christians and I wonder, what would darling Jesus think of such callousness? Not very Christlike now, is it?

But wait a minute; is heaven and hell that close? I mean, many Christians obviously expect to be looking from their heavenly throne at such close proximity at Atheists burning in hell fire and many actually salivate at the thought of watching atheists suffer in this mythical hell. What sort of person takes pleasure in anticipating the pain of another? Hmm, I guess such a person has created God in their own sadistic, malicious and vindictive image and they often picture themselves sitting on his arms, or is it lap? Problem is, these God’s creators are yet to come up with a good product, plus they make lousy salespersons!

BTW, I do think Jesus makes Zombies look sexy, especially hanging on that cross wearing nothing but a loincloth and thorn crown. And he crowned the performance by breaking down his tomb and made sure to first show himself to women; it really could qualify as porn!

I am not a fan of the menstrual cycle but i understand it is a natural part of making new human lives and this is great. If there was any intelligent designer, aka God, women wouldn't need to bleed...

The degree of emancipation of women is the natural measure of general emancipation. Every society's greatness can be measured by the way it treats its most vulnerable members. Every human being is born equal in rights and dignity. Stand up against oppression of women, stand up for equal rights, emancipate yourself from mental slavery, empower a woman today and DEMAND your inalienable human rights!
Happy International Women's Day!

THEY SAY IT IS CULTURE, I SAY IT IS TORTURE!
They say it is culture
I say it is torture
Born a woman, a reason to be oppressed
It is culture, a woman must be suppressed
I must never be too forward
They will only drag me backward
As a woman I must learn to be submissive
For a man has the power to be dismissive
To be accepted
I must be subjected!

Different meals I must prepare
That’s what makes me special
They say teas I must make
Special cakes I should bake
The butter I churn amidst the patter
To children and husband I pander
Hanging on to my apron often
As I take the heat of the Oven
I am sweating
He is swearing
Well he is the Man
And I am just a Woeman

They celebrate polygamy
But condemn polyandry
Why must he have all the fun
Having his beer belly rub in the sun
He has status, he must be a chief
Cos he has so many wives as chefs
Catering to his every need
Ready to bear all his seeds
Many lovers will leave me a pariah
I can be stoned according to Shariah

I am a child and there goes my friend
I can’t see her face; she is covered like a fiend
They say it makes her a woman worthy
Her value rises when a man comes forth
She is just a child that needs to play
Without all the covers to drag and slay
We were playing in the rain
Now I search for her in vain
Someone has carted her off to marry
She is just a kid, Oh how I worry
Now she will never be merry
As that old man pops her cherry

I am a child born an atheist
Only to be told I must be a theist
To their services I am dragged
While all they do is brag
About their god fearing child
Oh how I wish for a shield
From all that talk of heaven and hell
I would rather be left in my shell
As the thought of a burning fire
Leaves me bewildered and tired
But they think I must have
With them a myth to share
A god to offer supplications
As I submit my applications

See I am gay
So I have no say
They say it is a taboo
But this is not a tattoo
That leaves me a choice
Now I have found my voice
With Pride I reject your offer
In silence I will no longer suffer
Safety and silence for my sexuality
It’s too high a price for my mentality
Now you know one man‘s culture
Is really another woman’s torture!

HAPPY INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY TO ALL SISTERS!

Pathetic religion and its horrible fanatics killing for an imaginary Skydaddy again. Religion is sad news for humanity.
Gunmen from the militant Islamist group al-Shabab kill at least 15 people and take students hostage after storming a university in Kenya.

Growing up, the time I ever had to talk about my periods with my parents or the adults around me, including class teachers, was all about the lecture and stern reminder that with menstruation comes the risk of pregnancy. I remember getting my first period and immediately told it was a warning not to mess around with men. Subsequently, having my periods right on schedule every month was a way of confirming to the adults around me that I was not sexually active or at least not pregnant. My periods became a way for people around me to police my body and sexual activities. Growing up in a society where sex education is almost taboo, my monthly periods seemed like the inaudible way of saying, “Hey, I am not pregnant!”
There is also the unfortunate religious stigma surrounding menstruation. In many religions, including Christianity under which I was brought up, menstruation is viewed as a dirty thing to be avoided.

 A menstruating woman is referred to as unclean and is forbidden from entering the House of God or going near temples. The bible in Leviticus 15:19 says,

“When a woman has a discharge, and the discharge in her body is blood, she shall be in her menstrual impurity for seven days, and whoever touches her shall be unclean until the evening. And everything on which she lies during her menstrual impurity shall be unclean.”

Yeah, WTF is the appropriate response!  At the time, I was an ardent churchgoer and i remember feeling sad when i could not attend church services with my family, due to the monthly ‘curse’.

Please understand that calling a woman “a man’ because of her achievements or courage is NOT A COMPLIMENT. Those words are nothing but an insult to the woman, her achievements and gender identity. You do not honour me by calling me “A Woman like a Man“, in fact with such words you deny my gender identity and degrade my biological sex. I am a Woman and Proudly so. #InternationalWomensDay
