|Culture / Re: Gay Marriages In Nigerian Society - A Historical And Cultural View by somegirl1: 4:49pm On Jul 27|
Thought I quoted by someone capable of having an intellectual discussion hence my bothering to reply the first.
I haven't your time.
|Culture / Re: Gay Marriages In Nigerian Society - A Historical And Cultural View by somegirl1: 4:40pm On Jul 27|
What is your understanding of the term "gay"?
|Culture / Re: Gay Marriages In Nigerian Society - A Historical And Cultural View by somegirl1: 12:34pm On Jul 27|
You can't refer to those sort of arrangements as gay marriages. There was absolutely nothing sexu-al about them.
They were symbolic, same as marriage in absentia which is still practiced.
Homosexuality has never been a part of Igbo culture, I can't speak authoritatively for other cultures.

Having an Igbo president would go a long way to make Igbos feel reintegrated. Until then, many will continue to feel marginalized.

I've seen this man's photo in a different story in which the perpetrator was yoruba.
|Forum Games / Re: Photo:which Car Should Go First? by somegirl1: 2:47pm On Jul 08|
Anyone who believes A shouldn't go first, needs to be banned from driving until they complete proper driving lessons and/ or until they can be trusted to let common sense prevail.
Little wonder we have so many road accidents.
How anyone believes an emerging vehicle should have the right of way is beyond me.
|Politics / Re: Military Takes Over Anambra Prison - PUNCH by somegirl1: 1:39pm On Jul 05|
Same way you don't live in fear of being kidnapped for ransom, or for rituals in the case of the south west.
Your region produced and continues to fund Boko Haram.
A national problem definitely, but not the fault of any other region.
We have our own issues to deal with as it is.

What "improvements" do you suggest that I make?
The ability to assimilate, which I do not lack, is indeed essential
My comment was not unrelated to your reference to the possibility of unmentioned names being from the SE.
Sometimes things don't need to be spelled out. One should be able to put two and two together... use their brain, basically.
Glad to have taught you something. You're very welcome

Okoro is also an Urhobo name FYI

|Religion / Re: 10 Women A Christian Man Should Avoid When Considering Marriage by somegirl1: 10:51am On May 31|
2 and 3 are potentially conflicting points. If a woman shouldn't marry a younger man, at a certain age when most men older than her are married, she'd have to set her hope on the widower or the divorcee.
Now the divorcee's ex-wife, who through no fault of her own became the divorced woman, does not deserve to find love?
|Politics / Re: Buhari And Osinbajo Declare Their Assets by somegirl1: 10:14pm On May 30|
Are declared assets verified or do we take their words for it?
What stops one with criminal intent from declaring more than he's actually worth?
|Family / Re: Is It Healthy For A Mother To Ask These Kinda Question From Her Son? by somegirl1: 2:37pm On May 28|
Not all women make great mothers.
And some men make awesome dads.
I know a man who absolutely adores his dad and can hardly stand being around his mum for long. The reverse is the case with his older brother, his mother is his world.
They just have very different opinions of what makes a great parent.
|Family / Re: Is It Healthy For A Mother To Ask These Kinda Question From Her Son? by somegirl1: 2:31pm On May 28|
Might seem unreasonable but something must have prompted the question. Every parent should know the answer without being told.

Crime isn't an individual thing when an Igbo man is caught with drugs in Asia so why is it suddenly an individual thing?
|Culture / Re: King Jaja Of Opobo And Wives In The 1870s [ Location: Rivers State ] by somegirl1: 11:00am On May 21|
Opobo is Igbo land now because it suits your agenda and would revert to being Rivers Ijaw in a political thread. Funny.
|Culture / Re: King Jaja Of Opobo And Wives In The 1870s [ Location: Rivers State ] by somegirl1: 10:54am On May 21|
Were Jaja's wives Igbo?

He must have been asked again and again or his previous remarks are being recycled.
I doubt any sane person would go about repeating himself like he's stuck on replay when he's not asked the question.

Stop getting yourself worked up unnecessarily.
They probably refer to Nigerians as Igbo as a large percentage of Nigerians in Thailand are Igbo. Not because Igbos have specifically been identified as drug dealers.
I can see how desperate you are for this to be true.
Are you saying that a non-Igbo is more likely to get away with drug smuggling than an Igbo person?
If that were the case, I don't see why any potential drug smuggler wouldn't just get a passport with a non-Igbo name. Very easy to do. How then would they be identified?'
