Sonia Ogbonna, wife of Nollywood actor, Ik Ogbonna, took to her Instagram page, to lament how women settle for double standards in the society.
In a post directed at the women, the mother of one said that she was tired of women competing with each other and nursing insecurities.
”I’M SO SICK OF DOUBLE STANDARDS. Help me understand this please: so when a woman cheats on her man ,you all don’t call a side dude “home breaker” and “wife snatcher”. Instead, wife is labeled as an irresponsible whore.
When a man cheats on his woman, it’s not a man that you will blame. You justify his actions just because,(even though in most cases his married self is the one throwing bread at them babes) and it’s all “side chick’s” fault.
She is the one you will abuse,insult and call names,”husband snatcher aka home breaker”..etc… I don’t get.. The most painful thing is, it’s WOMEN who support,accept and teach their daughters to live according to such double standards, not even men sef.
It’s your fellow lady that will call you names and point fingers at you. Stop shaming one another all in the name of idiotic competition based on jealousy and personal insecurities among women. YOUR MAN DOES NOT TREAT YOU RIGHT BECAUSE YOU SETTLED FOR IT AND ALLOWED IT ,NOT BECAUSE OF ANOTHER WOMAN. #soniaogbonna’
