Pete Edochie: Feminism Is Why Women Get Beaten Up In Marriage by TheSupleemLeada(m): 3:24pm On Mar 31
Veteran Nollywood actor, Pete Edochie, has said feminism should be held responsible for the domestic violence women suffer in marriage.

The actor told BBC Igbo that modern women lack a basic skill like cooking to keep their husbands happy, adding that women are usually to blame for cases of domestic violence.

He noted that any woman who cannot cook has lost the right to refer to herself as a woman.

He said, "Feminism isn’t something black people are known for. Once a woman leaves her parents to meet her husband and takes his surname, she is to be submissive to him. If she wasn’t married, she can do whatever she wants.
"Women walk and show off their behinds, it’s so that men would find them. If you see such a woman and express your marriage interest, then she starts walking properly. Our women now plunge into feminism nowadays.

“They can’t even keep their husbands anymore. Is that a good thing? These women are schooled but a lot of wives now can’t even cook — one thing that a woman should be good in so as to be able to keep her husband.

“My mother was not educated but she would cook all sorts of soups, including bitter leaf, Oha, Ogbono, Okro, Egusi, Ukwa, and what have you. My father would always get back home hurriedly to eat what his wife had cooked.


“Today, our wives can’t even cook anymore. Women who can’t cook aren’t supposed to call themselves women. And feminism is what causes women to be beaten up in marriages. You complain to a woman and she retorts.

"It becomes unbearable, so you stretch your arm and deal her a slap. Domestic violence starts. I don’t like seeing women crying because it hurts me deeply. But it is the fault of the woman herself a lot of times.”

According to Edochie, feminism has no place in Nigeria’s culture.

He continued, “To be honest, the understanding of women is low. I’m not a misogynist but I’ve associated with them a lot, even at work. Feminism has no place in our culture. We don’t worship women as the whites do.

“In the west, women could join forces and accuse a male colleague of assault. The man resigns. This can’t happen in our culture. As a young woman, if pedestrians don’t admire you, you’d weep for fear of not being beautiful.

"I’m a strong adherent of culture. Kneeling to put a ring on a woman’s hands is not our culture. Any man who does that transfers the headship of his family to that woman. Until my dad died at 96, he never knelt to propose.

“It’s just like kneeling down on entering a church because there’s a higher being to whom you’re paying respect. Men climb trees to tap palm wine. How does it look if women do the same? Today women dictate to men.

“It wasn’t like that in our days. How women talk to men nowadays isn’t how we were raised. My mother was never beaten. My wife and I have been married for 52 years. I never beat her. My five married sons don’t beat their wives.”

Nothing but the truth.

The only issue i have with Feminism are those good for nothing weaklings, pvssies (Men) that identify themselves as feminists.

Stop interfering in women's business. Leave Feminism for women and start fighting for Men's right. No one's gonna do it for you, not even the women you claim to be fighting for.

If you're a guy and you call yourself a feminist, shame on you. You're not worthy to be called a Man. Go buy yourself a Vagina..

First it was: If your husband is cheating, buy him condoms.


Now it is: Feminism Is Why Women Get Beaten Up In Marriage.

How is women empowerment the reason for women getting beaten?

If these are not symptoms of old age what are they?

Modified:
I got it now. He means when women get empowered, their husbands beat them cause they are scared their wives would be doing better than them.
Men and their low self-esteem.

YelloweWest:

This man is a plain idiot. It a sane clime, nobody would grant him an interview to spew such trash.
My father is older than him but will never encourage violence against women.

"If your husband is cheating buy him condoms"

"If your wife comes home drunk, break every bone in her body"

Why can't he advice men to tolerate their wives the way he adviced women to tolerate their cheating husband?

His a stupìd old piece of shìt!
I stop taking him serious the day he said if a man wants to buy a car for his married daughter, he should buy in her husband's name. What rubbish? He thinks this is stone age. Even his son does not support him.

It's old age

Calitoscassius:
don't mind them low self esteemed backwards Nigerian men,. cheesy they are looking for a slave/doormat for a wife.


Every time they are bashing their women as if them the men are saints, what else can they offer a woman? apart from the so called marriage. Marriage which most of them cannot even handle. grin
God bless you

God bless you chief for knowing the reality on ground.



A woman cannot try to be equal with the husband in the house and you expect peace to reign there.

Will you shut up that your mouth. What do you know? rather than shouting the future is female. You know that the great sage is saying the truth but the stupid feminist tendency must possessed you to type nonsense.

You're a mere online feminist, in reality you're so timid before guys.
