Women like me got accustomed to the fact that we would have to lose some of our male friends who made it their duty to put down women.
Women like me learnt not be a door mat in the presence of men, our fathers, our brothers, our uncles, our males friends, our pastors, as a result, we were outcasts.
Women like me realized we had no business dating men who only saw us as sexual objects.
Women like me learned that we had to lose valued males in our lives because they could not comprehend the fact that we were human beings.
Still women like me met men who were not afraid of standing in front of their fellow men and saying out loud that they are feminists!
Women like me realized the importance of such men in the liberation front. Women like me will raise our sons better.
