GENDER BASED VIOLENCE
Gender based violence is a vice that has been going on, but few people can talk about it. I think most people have not been able to talk it, because it is a very sensitive topic. The reason way I`m pointing it out to be so, it mostly involves relationship issues and privacy. Few people have courage to talk about these issues openly.As a crowd of people suffer in silence, swallow up their pain. They feel it is shameful and embarrassing to talk about it openly or report to the related government officials.
The most cases that have been able to be reported in the police station in Kenya, especially in Mombasa, Likoni states that, 45% of women have been violated, 3% men have been violated. When we put an eye on the percentage of men we find out that it is very minimal cases that have been able to be tracked down, Do you really think it is only the three percent of men violated in the whole region of Mombasa county?
Women have the power to show up, express their problems they face in their houses, in their community and the county at large. They do feel it is their rights to do it, though some are usually not able to report these painful acts happening to them due to one reason or the other. The family background plays a huge part on this, changes.
The person who had been violated; raped, sexual harassed or sexual assault. Will fail to get his or her justice when the family is poor, you may find that the victims use their wealth to wipe out their evil deeds. Someone gives you one million and you’ve thousand dollars problems, will you be able to leave it? When you know you can use herbs and local medication to cure the violated person. This why some of the cases have not been reported up to date. This is the same reason this problem continues happening in our society.
When someone realizes that he/she can do it, and in return pay for it, they take advantage of it.
We once talked about this issue in our community group. Very few people were able to give critics on this topic. Not that they have no idea, but also expressing it becomes so hard. I know even to you it might sounds so hard to express yourself. For instance, say you have been sexual harassed by your wife. In most cases, where people who are out of marriage, think that it so hard for such kind a thing to happen.
Those who keep on saying such kind of words mostly are teenagers who.To be open such kind of things keeps on happening.
Gender based violence is usually associate with one part of the gender, taking on power, to an extend where one feels so powerful than another. This power that is obtained with of one the gender side is then miss used, mainly it is missed used by violating one of the gender. Those who claim to be in power usually use their power negatively.
This gender based violence can be of many forms; these include sexual violence, emotional violence and physical violence. Why should we tolerate gender based violence? Why don`t we live in peace? Why should you harm someone else to fulfill your desires?
We were created with humanity; we were programmed to live with harmony. Boundary were set to ensure that we all don`t go over someone else’s nose. Why don`t we live with this fact and reserves other people`s peace.
We can make this world a better place to be, if we only respect one another. We give everyone an equally opportunity, treat everyone with utter most respect and honor. We can change it.
When you look at the fact that we all have brothers and sisters, if you don`t have brother or sister, you have your relatives of both sexes. Your mom can be a victim too. Whatever you do to anyone one it will also be done to you, whoever you mistreat, abuse or oppress it will also happen and in the worst state ever.
Why should you look down upon someone? Due to your powers and wealth, you end up making someone`s else life miserable just to please yourself. You rape someone, you enjoy it and the one you raped suffers, crying when she or he thinks of the important value you took from him or her.
The scars you leave on someone’s heart, just because you want to fulfill your desires without caring. How would you feel when the same thing happens to your relatives? Will you really tolerate it? Or you will curse every man or a woman walking on the earth.
There is no need to bull anyone; there is no need to oppress or violet anyone. Work on the better version of your own soul. Make peace with the inner soul. You will be one day six feet deep. You will realize that nothing was meant to last forever. The power will cease to exist.
Don`t do anything, just because you feel like doing it. Don`t let your desires drive you. You harass someone, after some few minutes you have gained the pleasure you wanted. What next? Have you been elevated to the sky? Or it is just the two minutes pleasure!
Learn to think of the consequences, think of the outcomes when they find out you did such an action. Twenty years or more imprisonment! That is worth it for the two minutes pleasure.
