Here I am sitting in the darkness. I have to say, it’s pretty nice trying to play scrabble with some really cool people, squinting in the candle light to see the letters on the old tiles. Actually, they’re playing and I’m chilling. Kenyan style. In the dark
Seriously though, how was your week? Mine was interesting, as usual. Here’s the thing on my mind though: A non-Kenyan male friend recently shared with me that the word on the street is…are you ready? “Kenyan girls are cheap.” Whaaaa???!!!?!?!? I’ve gotta say I got a bit defensive about that, for all of 5 seconds. He was kind enough to let me in on why Kenyan girls have such a nasty reputation. According to him, if they (the girls/females) think that you might have money and/or you’re a foreigner, then they’re willing to give up what they think the man wants. OUCH! Since that very painful conversation, I’ve tried to look at things from the male perspective and I have to admit that it’s not looking good. Ladies, is this true?!?!
And now on to my rants…
Kenyan ladies: Hold the rotten eggs and tomatoes and let me explain. First, I know that it’s not all ladies who are loose but I’ve to admit that from a guys perspective, it looks like a lot, and I mean A LOT of ladies do give the impression that they can be had for a very small price.

What’s with the idea that what we see on TV is actually reality? Hellooooo ladies, can we please style up and get back to what is actually a beautiful and honest reality? Even if it isn’t, our dignity should not be for sale, yes???
Kenyan men! Urrghh…Don’t EVEN get me started! Who on earth gave you the stupid idea that unless you’re sleeping around you’re not really a man? What happened to your self respect? Dignity? Integrity? Where are you when the real men are being counted? You want respect? Earn it, and start with yourself first! When did sex become a measure of your worth as a man? What happened to holding yourself to the kind of high standards that made you a high quality man worthy of a high quality woman??? Can you PLEASE wake up and STOP listening to your miserable loser friends telling you to have sex – and without protection at that – to measure up. What your so-called friends are conveniently neglecting to mention is that they’re sad, depressed and lonely when they go home and face their real world.
Ladies and gentlemen, can we please decide to put an end to this vicious cycle that we started on each other and just cal
