Sex, Love and Romance in Popular Culture

In my opinion, the idea that vaginal discharges mean a woman has orgasmed is as ridiculous as assuming that a man has orgasmed simply because of the existence of pre-cum.

We Are Not Our Mothers

The new generation of Liberian women must aspire to have healthy marriages that nurture children to go on to respect the sanctity of marriage. Marriage na joke oh!

Let’s Keep It Professiona​l​

Navigating the professional world as a young, “attractive”, female-identifying individual means walking a straight line of politeness and amiability without ever veering into the territory of flirtation- which is nearly impossible as a simple smile can be, and is often, misconstrued as a come-hither invitation.

Justice in the Liberian Society

Monrovia was not worth the hype. Upon my arrival, I had to face the irony of the environment and decide between the law and common sense. One evening in 2017, a ‘zogo’ jerked my phone and ran into the nearby community along the Somalia Drive. For a moment, I was devastated, then I became calm, and I let go. I accepted that my phone was gone and I just wanted to reach home safely and have a rest. After sitting in that jammed traffic for several minutes, I heard the sounds of an angry mob across the street chanting, “Rogue! Kill him; kill him.” I immediately stopped the driver, paid him and got out of the car to head straight to the scene. I didn’t want bloodshed. I do not support mob violence and logically speaking, why should someone be killed just because they stole a cell phone?

Migration and the Role of Governance and Internet Actors

By March, 2019, thousands of Liberians who immigrated to the U.S due to the civil war, Ebola crisis, and other reasons will be faced with deportation as their legal status expires. Many are calling for an extension of their status to legally stay in the U.S. Why? Because of the lack of trust in their governments to provide the livelihood conditions they currently enjoy in the U.S as compared to home. If their deportation pushes through, their return may create some burden on society. The role of our government is to reintegrate these migrants back into society.

Migration and the Role of Governance and Internet Actors

Most Liberians know of folks who have migrated, especially as a result of the 14-year Civil War. Others migrated in search of better opportunities, loved ones, or simply because they felt the desire to. One may argue that moving from one point to another (migration) is a basic human right – this we don’t dispute. However, illegal migration and the means through which people migrate illegally is dangerous, hence must be curtailed.

Does Liberia Have a Rape Culture?

Following Sweetz’ recounts of said event, a friend of mine had a conversation with a guy that exemplifies the ‘excuse’ aspect of rape culture. The guy said, ‘DenG must have thought Sweetz was playing hard to get.” Other sentiments also include, as can be seen in the screenshots attached, ‘Sweetz gave him the impression, it was not even rape.’

The True Meaning and Intent of Feminism

Let’s start by making this abundantly clear: Feminism is more Pro-men than Anti-men as most men, and even some women, like to see it. It simply tells the world that: women deserve the same opportunities and chances that men do, women are equally creative, innovative and intelligent as men and women are not asking for…

Patriarchy and Society’s Misconception on the Function of the Female Vagina

“Most men would no longer enjoy conversing with most women if they stopped bringing their vaginas along.”  ― Mokokoma Mokhonoana About two months ago, during one of my reflective moments, I randomly thought about sex and its impact on intimate relationships nowadays. I wanted to understand what would be the status of most relationships  in…

What Do You Do with Your Internet Data?

I know what you do with your internet data is none of my business. Trust me, my browser history is a testament of what I do with mine. It’s a closet full of secrets – only God knows. Recently, I decided to review records of my internet data consumption. I did not only realize I…
