Scum from Where?
When I was 6, my dad's younger
sister living with us will take me into
the bathroom (lie me on her chest)
and make me suck her breast while
she relaxes in the bathtub.
I never told anyone because I enjoyed
...But men are always the ones
demonised for abusing girls and
jailed for rape.
It is not because the predators are
mainly male, it is becausemost female
predators don't leave physical
scars as evidence of their evil.
They damage guys psychologically
and leave the carcass for others
When I was 16, I was raped by
a 23 years old girl.
She had been writing WAEC for seven
years and failed every time.
I was a young man who cleared GCE
in SS2, she came on to me with all
she had to manipulate me to help her
out during the exam!...
I was a young undergraduate already
and this "Aunty" is a neighbour's
The mother asked my mother if she
can be coming over so I can help her
with her studies.
My mother gladly agreed on my behalf
and from coming over, it shifted to me
going over to her house...
It took time but I eventually got the
message and willingly went along
with the "lesson sessions".
A week to her exam, her mother
called me and said they had bought
two forms for her WAEC and arranged
uniforms for me so that i can sit
beside her in the exam hall...
...and help her write her papers.
If i refuse to comply they have
pictures of me sleeping with her
and they will show it to my mother.
My born again, tongue talking,
WMU leader, choir leader mother!
They did what they could, but the
moment i left their house that day...
I stopped going home even for break.
I couldn't believe a mother and
daughter would gang up to corner
me into committing examination
They told my Mum I raped the girl,
my mum came to my school and
I told her the truth.
I have the exam card of the form
they bought with me.
I was supposed to attach my passport
photograph to it and I tendered it
My mum believed me and that was
all that mattered.
These experiences thought me a
great deal about the evil inherent in
women whom I had grown up believing
are "weaker vessels"
As an undergraduate, I was the
Library-classroom-church -library type.
I sometimes read for days without
remembering to eat.
I remember my first encounter with
a campus babe, LB, who heard of
my fantastic first sememster CGPA
and wanted in on the act
I was reading in the library when
she csme in, a beautiful lady with
a slight limp. I was constantly checking
the time so as not to miss my 1 pm '
lecture when she suddenly sat beside me,
lifted up her skirt and said "Look".
But i wasn't looking with my eyes...
Another part of my body stood
to attention and a warmness
suddenly grew inside me.
"Do you like what you see?" She said.
If you will help me out with tests,
tutorials and assignment,
you can have it.
All of it!
She did this to me right in a
I missed that lecture!
How many other encounters like
this would i recount?
I am no Adonis, all I had was my good
brain and good grades and i have
had to fend off unwanted attention
from all sorts of women.
As I grew older, i have come to realize
that human nature does not defer
Evil is evil regardless of colour, race,
gender, religion, and other divides.
A woman may damage a man and such
a man may end up hurting many
women as a result.
Of course we can demonize the man
all we want and treat women as victims.
We will be deceiving ourselves!
