#WhyKenyanMenCheat: A Response To That #NjokiChege Article

I assume you’ve already read Njoki Chege‘s article: LADIES: It’s all your fault that he is CHEATING!

I said I would do a feminist response to the article and here it is.

Disclaimer: Opinions expressed here are mine and mine alone. I will ramble but I will make some sense :-)

So the gist of the article is that it is the woman’s fault that her man is cheating on her. Her arguments are simple:

  • You…

I wonder…

Jealous?
Interested?
Mind far away?
Flabbergasted?

Oh well…. I can’t stop you…
But I also can’t stop thinking that…

It is still rude to stare

Send your support to Yara Sallam and other imprisoned Egyptian human rights defenders

Yara Sallam and six other women’s human rights defenders — along with 16 men tried in the same case — had a hearing on June 29 in their trial for peacefully protesting against Egypt’s draconian protest law. The judge postponed the next hearing till September 13, meaning they’ll spend all summer in the heat of prison cells. Colleagues of mine were able to visit some of the women and said they are in good spirits, but they asked for mail from the outside world.

It seems to be possible to get letters to the detainees, and I’ve posted information about how to do that here: http://paper-bird.net/2014/07/14/send-your-support-to-yara-sallam-and-other-human-rights-defenders-imprisoned-in-egypt/ Basically, you can email letters to me, and I’ll pass them on to colleagues in Egypt who believe they can be hand-delivered. I’ve also added a link to an FIDH call for letters to Egyptian authorities about the case. 

If activists figure out a safe, more direct way to send letters of support, I’ll update accordingly. Please feel free to forward this message or the link.

Crash Course World History is now available on DVD! Visithttp://dft.ba/-CCWHDVD to buy a set for your home or classroom.

In which John Green teaches you about capitalism and socialism in a way that is sure to please commenters from both sides of the debate. Learn how capitalism arose from the industrial revolution, and then gave rise to socialism. Learn about how we got from the British East India Company to iPhones and consumer culture in just a couple of hundred years. Stops along the way include the rise of industrial capitalism, mass production, disgruntled workers, Karl Marx, and the Socialist Beard. The socialist reactions to the ills of capitalism are covered as well, and John discusses some of the ideas of Karl Marx, and how they’ve been implemented or ignored in various socialist states. Plus, there are robots!

We sang this song in tribute to those who lost their lives, and to those who were affected by the Westgate Tragedy on the 21st of September 2013. #WeAreOne and We Shall Rise.

Your memory is our keepsake.
With which we’ll never part.
God has you in his keeping.
We have you in our heart.
- Rose de Leon
