A million word

I am in no mood to munch up words today. Let us just accept randomness and flip through. After all, pictures speak a million word.

Accentuate the positive. Find the basic truth about your idea and dramatize it.


You Should oh
Few moments when we have options out what we do not have
I ditched this out of my favourite picture collections.
shhhhh!
Honestly, this truth hit me always.
Holds laugh!
I made this a valentine's day 2010
This wasn't mine. Femi was practicing with PS. Jobless right?
Before I begin posting what I shouldn't, I will stop here.
We can't keep ruminating words all the time. Just chillax and leave a comment below. Daalu.

I am @tomisinajiboye

Genesis; Discpline


Hello, did you miss the first part of the gist? check it Here

I actually thought of writing about Competition/Comparison after reading some back and forth argument on a tech site but later changed my mind. And because Ayobami Sholola has written a little bit about Comparison.

Tope Aigba: Beyond The Petitions To Save The Girl Child, Lets Move To Second Gear


The #ChildNotBride Campaign: What it is all about.

On Friday 19th July 2013, the frenzy move for the #girlchild began after the failure of the Senate to expunge S.29 (4B) of the CFRN that was undergoing amendment.

So as not to be misrepresented, I’ll explain what transpired and why we took the stand we did.

OPEYEMI FASHETAN - The Need and Case for Feminism

This is What a Feminist Looks Like
 Feminism seeks to achieve equal social, political, and all other rights of women equal to those of men.Simple, but that sums up an entire world of rhetoric as seen in the modern world. The misconceptions and ignorance of that word and how it works deserves several conferences, research teams, white papers and interviews; and it still will not be enough.

I have come to understand that the word ‘Feminism’ is associated with a lot of misgivings. Some men take to their heels at the sound of the word. Some people say feminists are anti-men in all respects. My friend, Niyi Abiri, thinks feminists are afraid of being female. Another friend, ayoSholola, thinks I shouldn't be associated with such word. I understand all the emotions, feelings, and thoughts on feminism, but I am unapologetically a feminist.

Over the years, there have been issues that affect women, men and the society in general. I have heard people label them women issues, when it comes to rape, family planning, maternal mortality, sexual harassment, fistula, FGM – Female Genital Mutilation, equality, and oppression. But the truth is this: it is everyone’s business. No society would thrive in the midst of women oppression. We have basically tried to justify some of these things by entwining culture and religion. Culture should not be a source of sadness or used as a tool to justify unfair treatment of anyone. So also is religion.

Genesis: Handling A New Beginning

"Nothing so difficult as a beginning"

Do you remember when you thought up that idea? Or when you were offered that amazing job? Or the thrill of the admission? You could not wait to start out, you were all happy about the opportunity to do something new, to start a new thing. You’re consuming every book and material you could lay your hands on, asking different authorities about your dream idea or job.
But alas... having started for some times now, those thrills now seem ancient, frustration and difficulties are all staring at you in the face. The jolly journey is slowly becoming a nightmare.

TOPE AIGBA: DO YOU LOVE ME TO HURT ME? PART 3

The journey into DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AND ABUSE started about two weeks ago, where we discussed about what it was. We went on to enumerate and explain the forms of domestic violence and abuse which comprises of Physical abuse, Sexual abuse, Emotional or Psychological abuse and Economic abuse. More of this can be seen here in Part 1.

In the second series, we discussed the causes of domestic violence and abuse. What is the rationale behind forcefully and deliberately hurting another person? Some reasons and counter reasons were given but I summarized it all into 4 via;

Ø  Observation
Ø  Culture, tradition and institution
Ø  Technological advancement and
Ø  No legal back up.

The fact that domestic violence is learnt by observation and through other areas means that the perpetrator’s behavior can be corrected and change effected and that is what we are embarking on now.
