Men are stronger than women? by Rachael Uwah

Here is a thinking mind of a sister, asking questions, pondering...

Men are stronger than women? Oh Pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
Can you bleed for a week and survive?
Can you squeeze a 14 inch baby from a 9 cm hole?
Can you carry a 7 pound baby in your stomach for 9months & @ the same time carry other heavy things like 20litres of water on ur head etc?
Can you take care of a child, cook,clean, and talk on the phone @ once?
Can you carry a 108 pound shopping bag?
Can you go a week only eating salad?
Can you face heartbreak?
Can you watch the love of your life be with someone else?
Can you accept lies then smile like you have heard the best truth in your lifetime?
Can you hurt your fingers while cooking and all you get is horrible comments like Its salty, Tasteless...?
Can you burn your forehead with a straightener & not complain cus u just want 2 look beautiful for someone?
Can you walk all day on 6 inch stilettos?
Can you cry all night then get up the next morning like everything is OK?

Note: this is not my work but Rachael Uwah's who has agreed that I share this.

Its a good one.
The writer put some thought into it. I don't know many women who'd eat only salad for a week though....

Afronuts said...

lol...so is this meant to prove that women are stronger than men?

Sure women rock...they are a unique creation but I don't think any sex is better than the other.

Nice poem for thought though!

I have to agree with afro nuts. The battle of the sexes needs to stop. Women are men are equal that's what we're striving for. We are not tryna prove that one sex is better than the other. Nice poem all the same

Hmmm, of course not (to all), men weren't 'hard-wired' to do these.

There is absolutely no basis for comparism, the man and the woman are different beings.

To each according to theirs.

Men and women are both strong...sometimes in different ways, sometimes in the same way. I think a great point was made though: don't relegate women to being the weaker sex. We too are strong. *finger snaps*

How are ya?

I choose not to comment yet. And this is not my article, I just found it interesting hence the sharing.

While I agree that men and women are both strong, women are stronger.

Women endure so much in this world, and suffer so much. Sometimes strength is not about outward appearances of power. Sometimes strength is inside.
