Nigerian radio personality, television host, vlogger, lifestyle entrepreneur, and author, Toke Makinwa has declared that women should not be blamed for getting cheated on by their partners.
The chatterbox radio personality who shared her thoughts on social media said that men should be out-rightly called out when they cheat instead of apportioning the blame with their partners.
Reacting further, Toke Makinwa said when a man betrays his marital vows, rather than say “men will disgrace you”, people should say “men will disgrace themselves” because the man’s guilt is not the woman’s to bear.
She wrote thus on Twitter; “Stop saying “men will disgrace you”, that is alluding and accepting shame for another’s crime. Instead say “men will disgrace themselves”. Adults should carry their cross without the distribution of shame, the woman was not in the mix, leave her out of the insults.
“I know we all love a good hot, pipping, steaming tea but can we try to cultivate the habit of not bashing women for the wrongs of their partners, if a woman gets cheated on by her husband/partner resist the urge to blame her for his wrongdoing and no, it’s no reflection on her,” she added.
