Female Child Is More Valuable Than Male Child – Reno Omokri by Ebukawaylaid(m): 10:05am On May 08, 2020
Nigerian author Reno Omokri has penned down a post explaining why female kids are way more valuable than male kids.

According to Omokri, female children are loyal and this is a thing that can not be said for most male children.

In his words;

”Dear men,
Take a tour of any hospital of your choice. You will see wives and daughters sleeping there because of their husbands and fathers. Hardly will you find a husband or son. And you are saying you don’t want a female child. You are a FOOL! All children are valuable, but a girl child is especially valuable, because women are likely to be more loyal than men. Christ had 12 disciples. But how many of them were at Golgotha during his death? Only one. Yet, 4 of His female followers were there. Loyalty is a WOMAN!”

Immediately you start comparing or appraising one gender As especially more valuable over the other, your argument no matter how coherent you may sound, becomes void of sense!

Children are EQUALLY valuable irrespective of their gender, and how valuable they turn out is highly dependent on the environment and kind of parenting they received while growing up!

If we're to counter his use of the Christ at golgotha story (for sake of argument), how many women went to take down Jesus' body from the cross?

Mr Reno,

When the wives and daughter are sleeping at the hospital, the husband and son are running around getting money for the hospital bills. If everyone sleep in the hospital, how will they settle the bills?
Besides, sleeping in the hospital is not the yardstick to measure caring and loving.

A child is a child irrespective of the gender.

hmm!

A male child is more important than a female child. In many cultures, a male child is more important than a female child.

A male child will carry the family NAME, and his children will have the same last name.

If a family only has a DAUGHTER, the family name will die out. Also, a son can be an heir APPARENT to the father.

Furthermore, Who is the head of the family? The answer is the father and a father is a male child for the parents.

A male child retains the fathers name. He is the person who will pay the bride price of a woman.

Stop spitting trash ...
Just say your female child or relative is better than your male child or relative..
Every family has their own opinion...
That's pure stereotype

This is true because without money for treatment, they wouldn't be admitted in the hospital.
Again, in the African traditional culture a family without a male child is not regarded.

However, I think a female child is as important as a male child.

The women only came after Jesus was buried in the tomb. None was even there to help Him carry the cross.

I think he is writing this because of the man who killed his newborn baby girl.
In that case, I will say let's do everything possible to discourage such people.
Personally, I have noticed that there's something special in girls children.
They seem to be more concerned about their aged parents than male children.

He's taken a bribe from our sisters. LOL. A reasonable child is more valuable than an unreasonable child - reasonableness has never known gender.

Also, he should understand that loyalty is different from self-interest - self-interest is a woman, at least it's a positive thing in this regard.

What is the difference between him and a man who says male children are more important because they 'carry' the family name?

As long as he can tell this to his boys, about how they are not as valuable as the girl child, that he knows and is not expecting them to be at his bedside when he's old and frail... then no problem. grin

Reno can carry on, but he should start the preaching from his house so he can be taken more seriously.

Too much of comparisons! Why can’t we just stop!

Each child, gender has a distinct/unique role. Both are needed for balance.

For each time a comparison is made, you inadvertently relegate one to the background. A preference for one sex over the other is largely a matter of opinion, and will always be debatable... not an absolute.

That being said, I want

A girl and a boy
Two girls and a boy

If the Lord says I shouldn’t have both sexes, then two daughters! cheesy

Lol, Mr. Reno is an interesting person every other day. grin

I wouldn't classify him as a celebrity though, more like someone who gained relevance through politics during Jonathan's administration, and has strong (sometimes controversial) political opinions...which is why I follow him on social media.

The thing is, anytime he takes a break from dealing with political issues and delves into social/family issues, he struggles by trying to play both sides. grin
Today he is anti-women, the next day he is anti-men.

Anytime he makes comments like the one above, most of the responses on his pages are from people telling him to please stick to political issues.
I mean, if you're going to appease both genders, it's better to be the umpire who sits on the fence by saying something like "all children regardless of gender are a gift, and one should not be more valuable than the other".

But not Reno Omokri cheesy
He has to say something that will trigger reactions.

This is someone who also hits hard at women by calling them frauds because they wear makeup to look better and deceive unsuspecting men, has also called women lazy and entitled, even talked about unmarried ladies in the photo below...

He doesn't know where to stand on gender issues.

Recently, I was speaking to my friend who has two boys. She said she wanted only boys because boys usually take care of their mums. I asked her one question that made her rethink. I asked her ...amongst her and her siblings, who visits the parents more, checking in on them often. Her answer changed her mind.

Both genders are valuable though. They all have their parts to play.

True that it's the ladies that are most likely to sleep in the hospital with their parents or children. At different times when my parents were hospitalized, it was the ladies that took turns staying and caring for them.

There are other ways the guys show their own support. It was never an issue we fought about.

I am sure it is the male that will carry belle by himself and born the pikin.

A male child will carry the family NAME, and his children will have the same last name.
This is because most cultures are patrilineal and does not make it impossible for lastnames to be passed through matrilineal lines.Don't you know that not all men choose to answer their family name.Some even give their children their own first names as lastnames for their kids.Barrack Obama,Clinton,Bush and every other powerful man out there have all daughters.Even Vladimir Putin has two daughters.And their names will still live on in history How many people their family name help?

If a family only has a DAUGHTER, the family name will die out. Also, a son can be an heir APPARENT to the father
I will rather have a daughter that will make me proud and take care of me than have a useless son that will bring nothing but shame and insult to me he would have even tarnished the so called family name by doing so.

Furthermore, Who is the head of the family? The answer is the father and a father is a male child for the parents.

A male child retains the fathers name. He is the person who will pay the bride price of a woman.[/b]

Your points are so archaic how does being a head make you better or important than others.Who told you that some women do not play much leadership roles in their families better than their irresponsible husbands that are just figure heads.Does paying brideprice make him much better and intelligent than a woman?These are just cultures and societal stereotypes that can change at anytime

That said a child is a child train a responsible child boy or girl and you will be happy you did.
The comparisons are uncalled for.

Sadly, there is a new trend where wives pick the first name & last name of the husband hyphenated or the first name of the husband as her last name and the kids also adopt same.

The family name phases out after a short while.

I have heard about that. Some weeks back a friend was asking me why I didn't do it. He said his wife has her surname with his surname. He was really trying to get me to do same like he had a stake in it somehow.

We that we drop our middle names plus the surname.
