No man can never justify stripping a woman

27 November 2014, 19:11 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi -  There are a lot of approaches one can take in trying to justify stripping a woman’s clothes; indecent, disrespectful, unwarranted, she was asking for it… the list is endless but what we can all agree on is at the end, even the beginning, she was all the same defenseless.

She is weaker, even when it is a single man, the woman will always be weaker when you match her physical strength against the man’s. It will all still point out to violence against her. 

It is a new height that we Kenyans are grasping to reach and we are already past it.  Because no one woke up in the morning and told anyone what to wear and no one gave anyone money for what they were wearing. It is not only frustrating but also chilling to have to now take hours on end trying to figure out if maybe what you are wearing might spark one’s anger and bring a crowds rage against you just for stepping out and going about your business.

And just because the other parties did not have anything better to do with their day and while away time as idlers.

Look at it from any angle but at the end of the day it is still the same outcome, defenseless women, being made to pay for being female. Because I do not see any men being chased down the street for going shirtless. If they can do that what is wrong with a woman doing the same because it is still the same-going shirtless.

Does not matter if he is working under construction, last time I checked, they even had to have illuminated gear on top and some men just have provocative and ‘disgusting’ bodies in the form of beer belies hanging out with hairy chest and sweat from exhaustion weighting them down.

If it is not wrong for them to go half naked, what justifies anyone to come against a woman missing few inches of their clothing?

Just because she did not want to reply to your catcalling or lurid winks and disgusting abusive remarks as she passed you in the street. The way I see it, if no one told you how to dress when you left the house as a man, then neither do you have the right to dictate terms to anyone that is neither your daughter nor your wife.
