  • Male circumcision- is this a recipe for future disasters?

    The picture you’re about to see below may be considered explicit .   Hey guys, it’s a new month y’all. The decision to write this topic came from a poll I took on my twitter account to appreciate the country with the largest amount of my viewers- the USA and a follower asked I write on a topic controversial to Americans which is the issue of male circumcision. Thanks Jessica from http://allformyself.net for the idea. Is it all good and rosy or is their another side not been talked about.

  • Are you subconsciously judgemental

Feel free to buy me a coffee @  https://ko-fi.com/abbey0245 Are you judgemental? I am sure most of us would probably swear that we don’t do that shit.  Half of us define ourselves as non- judgemental and tolerable people😇,  we aren’t one to judge others based on any criteria. We simply drink a glass of chilled water and mind our business🍸- with no care in the world for other people’s matters. The words in the picture below would most probably be your answer right??…

  • PRAY

    Lyrics from a song keeps ringing in my head it basically describes the struggles of christian life- the song “I’ll keep running to you” (sorry don’t know the name of the artist) is basically one of my favourite songs when I begin to feel like am losing the race of faith, that am undeserving of been in the presence of God because of my filthiness, that I am a sinner undeserving of forgiveness, that I keep praying yet I keep making the same mistakes I try to keep away from cause I knw they will hurt this new race I’ve began with God. But one thing I know is that…

  • Rape but not raped- how did rape become glorified 🙄

    Hey everyone, Now this is one controversial topic for sure, and this post is no way undermining the terrible effects of rape but rather to broaden the horizon ,and to bring light to the fact that a lot of people have been framed and their whole life destroyed by such accusations. We live in a society that somehow tends to to always believe the story of the female irrespective of the situation, and some girls tends to misuse the society’s trust and conjure up lies destined to thwart an innocent man’s life. Rape, as defined by https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rape , is ” a type of sexual assault usually involving sexual assault or…

  • What happened after I shared my story of sexual abuse.

    Thanks to Jeremy for being brave enough to write this post for us and to raise awareness on issues of male sexual abuse. Feel free to reach out to him on twitter at https://mobile.twitter.com/jak_jeremy I am a male survivor of longterm (10years) childhood sexual abuse. I am straight, 35 years old I disclosed publicly at 24. It was done on impulse when I saw the abuser at a public place with a young boy. Most straght male survivors of same-sex abuse don’t disclose for 25-30 years if at all. I know a few straght male survivors, all of the ones I know did not disclose until they were well established…

  • I almost died

    Trigger warning – suicide Thanks to Jaycob for agreeing to do this, it isn’t easy sharing your story and speaking out, you can follow him on twitter at https://mobile.twitter.com/jaycm1344It’s 2019, and we still haven’t gotten there yet. It’s 2019 and we still cant talk about mental health. It’s 2019 and still, each day, 123 people a day die by suicide, 79% of those being male. When are we going to get past this “Stiff upper lip” mentality for men and come to the realization that men have emotions, men feel things, we don’t HAVE to be these stoic figures that the world has wanted us to be for so long. …

  • My country my pride : South Africa

    When I was invited to collaborate on this, I was so excited! The idea of this series is to shed some light on the misconceptions people tend to have about a certain country – this, of course, makes South Africa the perfect country to be featured. As a third-world country, South Africa is really not all that bad. Although referred to as a “shithole-country” by Mr. Donald Trump, South Africa has some amazing qualities and I intend on elaborating more on them in this article. But first, let’s nip the biggest misconception in the bud: South Africa has much more to it than just wildlife! Therefore, I will not even…

  • What men don’t talk about by Stephen Howard

    Abuse. It’s something very few people are willing to talk about, but men most of all. Doubly so if they have been the ones abused. It’s not really any surprise considering the level of shame that comes with it, and when you have family member stuffing it down, pretending it doesn’t exist. Worse yet, they are in it. What does this create? A lot of broken men who are told that their feelings don’t matter and that they need to suck it up and deal with it. After all, men don’t cry, right? Breaking the Stigma Contrary to popular opinion, men actually feel things very deeply. Our emotions are like…
