Stop Sexual Violence in Congo

Thank you for raising this important issue Meghna. Many women's organizations are campaigning to end the sexual violence happening in Congo. Read a story by Global Fund for Women with their specific demands to stop the violence.

Humane Men SHOW that they view their Inhumane-Fellows as they would a Centipede.

Men - domestically, socially, corporately, politically and religiously, are allowed to remain too COMFORTABLE IN THEIR OWN WOMAN-BRUTALISING SKINS.

A shocking act of WASTED-GENEROSITY as deployed by Women, especially in the face of the horrific crimes committed so flagrantly and unremittingly against Women and her Children by Men.

NOWHERE ELSE IN NATURE does this EMOTIONAL-ABERRATION occur!

MEN, no matter how BRUTISH THEY CHOOSE TO ACT IN NATURE, nonetheless CANNOT CLAIM KINSHIP WITH NATURE'S BEASTS! An ironic compliment to these Beasts, as a comparison of the IMPETUS FOR BRUTE-BEAST BEHAVIOUR between ACTING-MAN and BORN-BEAST will usually substantiate!

For MAN - no matter how much he has tried to culturally-link himsself with "He-Man" elemental icons, CANNOT lay NATURAL CLAIM to the BRUTE-NATURE of, say: a LION.

And yet we see this Lion, living within his NATURAL HABITAT with LIONESS-MATE and LION-CUBS, acting in a manner that would (...SHOULD...!) shame BRUTE-ACTING MAN.

For a Lion acts TRUE TO HIS NATURE when, once maddened by a raw, open sore, it is ONLY THEN that he will lethally lash out at a Lioness or her Cubs, in a fit of savage, but UNDERSTANDABLE agony.

WHERE IS MAN'S EXCUSE for ACTING-THE-BRUTE to Women and Children who share Earth as co-habitors?

We have a saying here in the Caribbean: "When anyone sees a Centipede, everyone says: Kill it! Kill it!" In as much to say: that within Nature, there have been - and will always be some NATURAL elements, that are nonetheless still UNIVERSALLY RECOGNISED by the COLLECTIVE as being a MORTAL DANGER TO THE INDIVIDUAL, and ULTIMATELY TO THE COLLECTIVE.

Of course, this adage is not - and therefore should not be interpreted at the facile level as a recommendation to kill men.

What I am trying to CULTURALLY INTERROGATE here, is the AUTOMATIC, ALMOST PSYCHIC SOCIAL-COHESION THAT IS DISPLAYED BY THE COLLECTIVE, once any aspect of PERCIEVED-THREAT TO THEIR INDIVIDUAL LIVES IS DETERMINED.

There is no CLAMOROUS DEBATE, no TAKING OF SIDES. There is SIMPLY the UNHINDERED DEPLOYMENT OF TACITLY-AGREED ACTION TAKEN BY ALL TO ENSURE THE SUSTENANCE OF INDIVIDUAL LIFE.

WHY DOES A SIMILAR CAUSE-AND-EFFECT SCENARIO NOT PLAY OUT IN HUMAN-TO-HUMAN CRIME? Simply and FACTUALLY because amongst Humanity, it is the MEN, within humanity's social arrangement of MEN AND WOMEN COLLECTIVELY DOING ALL IN THEIR INDIVIDUAL POWER TO ENSURE AND SUSTAIN LIFE TOGETHER, that invariably CHOOSE TO "TURN ROGUE" against their OWN HUMAN NATURE (for the PLEASURE of it!), and their WOMAN-SHARED SOCIAL SPHERE (for the POWER of it!), but however who will thereafter SEEK nonetheless, TO STILL ENSURE THEIR FORMER "PLACE" OR STANDING AS A FELLOW-HUMAN BEING.

An OTHERWISE IMPOSSIBLE-TO-ACHIEVE TACTIC, but one here usually acheived by ROGUE BRUTE-MEN by dint of MALE BRUTE-FORCE.

To militage agasint this SOCIAL MALE-TACTIC, Women therefore need to TAKE BRUTE-MEN AT WHATEVER FACE-VALUE THEY CHOOSE - LIKE MASKS - TO EITHER HIDE BEHIND AS "BRUTE-BEASTS," OR HUMANELY OPT TO DISPLAY WITHIN COLLECTIVE SOCIETY!

SUGGESTION: Women need to NAME THE CRIMINAL ALONG WITH THEIR CRIME IN THE CRIME-SCENE THAT MEN MAKE OF THEIR LIVES. No more FUTILEY-GENOROUS FEMALE MOUTHINGS OF BANAL STATEMENTS LIKE: "Rape is on the rise." Instead, Women need to SPEAK TRUTH TO BRUTE-POWER and declare that: "Men are continuing to Rape Women and Children as they always have."

WOMEN: SPEAK - CLEARLY - THE CRIMES THAT MEN ACT AGAINST YOU! Leave Men NO PLACE TO HIDE! NO FACE TO HIDE BEHIND A MASK OF "HUMANITY!"
