This song makes me so emotional every time I listen 2 it. It moves me nje, I absolutely adore The Muffinz and this song so glad it has a video :)
This is my two cents on this opinion, being a woman in South Africa is becoming a scary thing, just to think at any minute something so horrific can happen to you, there are statics everyday about the number of woman being raped EVERYDAY which saddens my heart.
This morning I was walking to go get a taxi to work a man grabs me by my arm and demands to talk to me so obviously I shout “Leave me alone” because he had no right to just grab me, what happened next is what really upset me,all the men gathered around him just started laughing and mocking me.
These men felt I was being dramatic or had no right to shout, why do they feel it is okay for him to just grab me. Invade my personal space and I must just take it?
This is seriously a problem for me because it seems to be happening so often, a while ago while walking through Johannesburg CBD a man walks past me and grabs my breasts and simply walks on like he did absolutely nothing leaving me in shock. I don’t know what goes through a mans head for him to even do such.
I don’t know if men feel entitled to us or what the problem is but all I know is South Africa is still going to have a major problem if it is filled with men who laugh while a woman feels violated in that manner.
Anyway I needed to get off that my chest, it was weighing me down
P.S The pic I took for a PSA I did (school assignment)… It just felt relevant with the story
A gift from my awesome boyfriend… I blogged about wanting them weeks ago and he came through for me :)
