I was livid when I heard those despicable and disparaging remarks Counselor Lutterodt made about those ladies who are raped and his claim that they enjoy same.
I could not, for the life of me embrace his strange theory. It would be unconscionable for any well-reasoned person to bow in reverence to the self-styled counselor for his assumption.
Such traumatic experiences would not give any sane person happiness. Rape has the tendency to scar its victims for many years if not for good. Some are unable to snap out of these painful experiences throughout their lifetime.
While I would not subscribe to such comments which downgrade the female of the opposite sex as though they were some stony-hearted creatures of nature, I am also aghast at the palpable level of hypocrisy being exhibited by some women’s groups.
I am all for the barrage of condemnations being showered on Lutteroft but it is equally disheartening looking at how these same feminists kept quiet when Honourable Lydia Seyram Alhassan was described by some NDC MPs including women as a bloody widow.
The silence of these feminists was chilling when Lydia came under attacks from the NDC. These same women have found their sleepy voices because it is Counselor Lutterodt!
It was as if Lydia had been cast down on us from some strange planet, a place not known to be part of our universe. Lydia, a woman who had lost her husband was subjected to inhumane treatments by her fellow women and we did not see this groundswell of support for her against those attacks.
Sometimes, this selective way in which women’s groups support their own makes it difficult for sober minds from the opposite sex to wholeheartedly join in their campaigns.
They are vigorous in their condemnations on Counselor Lutterodt but most of them were dead silent when Lydia Alhassan became their object of scorn and derision. Until these feminist groups apply their double-edged sword fairly, they labour in vain with their advocacy!
