I could write some stuff but this video sums it up
Firstly I would liked to applaud and commend the efforts of the students of the University Currently Known As Rhodes (UCKAR) for bringing the issue of Rape Culture to the fore of national debate. It is long overdue that the youth drive the conversation of the day.
It should be known rape culture is entrenched in our society and we should take time for introspection and note behaviours in our everyday lives that perpetuate this never ending phenomenon.
Wow I cannot believe how much can happen in a year, I started writing this blog on the 21st of April 2016. It was sparked by the protest of Rhodents(Rhodes University students) against rape culture in their school and in society I guess… I really do not remember but 2017 cannot be a louder alarm bell if the ever was one.
I cannot sit here and write down a list of behaviours that perpetuate rape culture, because I believe that, is missing the point. There should not be police saying “hey! that is wrong”, “hey! that is rapey” because clearly prisons are not running out of business as people keep finding ways to end up there, and that is discounting the numerous people who should be in prisons
It is always easy to point out what is wrong and difficult to come up with solutions. One solution to this epidemic is self introspection, Its is annoying that a guy can say “not my daughter” “not my sister” but are willing to put another person’s daughter, sister, mom through the most.
I am a Christian, I am not a saint and I do not believe I am a better human being… I once wrote “being Christian is being Christ-like..” or something to that effect my memory is terrible. I do not mean Christ-like in a blasphemous sense but in a sense that I am striving to be like Christ and that is a journey and never a destination.
Let us just treat each other with respect… can we just do that? please… masihlalisane bantu beNkosi
No, it is not writer’s block…. you have to be a writer for that to happen.
I paged through my drafts and I can’t tell where any of those blogs were headed. I have decided to ease myself into the habit of writing. So most of my posts will be whatever did not fit in twitter’s 140 character
Now that I think about it is not a big problem to have I can revive my other blog with the short mini blogs and when I have an opinion piece… I’ll post it here.
"Do you believe your fellow countrymen or the Americans? #FIFAarrests"Its funny, the fact that I even have to think about it before I answer does not do my fellow countrymen any justice. Now I
You know if in life, if you are going to look for the approval of the public, you're still going to face a rough life. We all have a little time on this earth we need to at least make sure when we see our last days we look back and smile, not look back and see if other people will smile.
I am opening with that paragraph, because, I see praises and lauds being thrown everywhere but towards myself, after having done a similar job... sounds petty but sometimes it does make you think maybe I didn't perform my tasks but I gotta keep my head up. I trust myself and I'm on to the next one
I have recently served my term as Media & Projects Officer of the Anglican Students' Federation, looking back I am pleased with the work I have performed. I did the best I could and most importantly I enjoyed myself. I have left the federation in terms of social media presence with a foundation that will allow it to grow and stand amongst the the big kids in the playground.
I now look to return to my blogging days and maybe try to open a personal website. But for now I'll pen my adieu note.
