3 ways to protect your woman from bastards

20 May 2015, 16:54 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi -  Kevin Hart in some people’s standards is not funny, maybe he really is not and cannot beat the likes of …Dave Chappelle and others that I cannot remember.

Or maybe I can just not listen to your opinion and listen to him for myself. I was bored and had downloaded a full show of his, so I sat down and watched. Long story, it was funny, I liked it and if he was not good then he would not be that rich.

Anyway, on some part of the show, he was explaining how, if his woman got in trouble and another man disrespected her, he was not going to intervene. He explained that he already knew his shortcoming, small stature and the obvious lack of height that puts him at an obvious disadvantage to fight someone. He explained it so well that I agreed with him, no need for him to fight a battle that we can already see he will lose. In other words, if you are his girl/ his woman, stay out of trouble because he was not going to bail you out.

But then there is that day that another man is obviously blatantly disrespecting your woman and you just sit back with no response. As a man, do you stand up for your woman or do you take a large swig of Tusker and get a vacant look as you do not look in her direction.

It mostly happens in the bar or the streets. I have come across or been literally shoved to the side because some man is not looking where he is going. No apologies or regret as he continues to walk on.

Or you are in the club minding your business and some drunkard decides to foul your presence with his variety. It is usually funny to see what the man does when it happens. I have been lucky enough to be with people who did not let it pass and not with a brawl either.

On the other hand I have witnessed ladies who have to swallow the bitter pill because the man falls in the Kevin Hart variety even though he does not have those disadvantages of his unless you count the beer belly that precedes him.

At times it is not even a stranger but the man’s friend.

The male bond is something admirable that all females aspire to but at times it gets to be too much when he chooses the friend’s side rather than yours.

If a friend disrespects your lady, even if she is wrong, caution her on the side but never let the friend get away with it. It smacks really hard. If it is done once, it is bound to be done again and chances are with another fellow in your group because to them it communicated that you do not really care.

If you do not care then you can get away with it, because she will just pack up. But when it is your lady and you stay mum you also look dumb because the insult is indirectly apportioned to you too.

If you are a lady and the man does not stand up for you, then that man is not for you. I wonder why people look for the really big things to tell them what they need to know, most of the time the writing is usually in the wall through much smaller actions.

If he does not care now, he will not change and care later.

On the other hand there are situations where we all have to agree we let it pass because, we always have to keep it classy!

  1.        In an event-does not matter if you are VIP or common folk. Brawling in such places communicates that all parties are dumb.
  2.       The other person is clearly stupid, this are the situations where, you do not need to join in the Tomfoolery.
  3.        (Most obvious) Your partner is going to lose that fight. There are times the man wants to stand up for you, but you can obviously see the disadvantages he has. This is when you are the one to just pull him back and say it is not such a big deal and walk away.
