Does calling on Whats App not show that the man spends his money, in form of data, since his data runs out as he calls?
Well, individuals are entitled to their opinions on issues, and Toke Makinwa is definitely one of such controversial socialites with views that keep social media buzzing.
Presenter, vlogger and author, Toke Makinwa disclosed on her on love, sex and relationships vlog, ‘Toke Moments’, her opinion on men making Whats App calls as opposed to regular calls.
This episode of her vlog has resulted in a backlash from Nigeria’s Twitter community.
Expressly stating that it is her opinion, the on-air-personality said she preferred when a man called and texted her with regular call plans, rather than calling her on Whats App. She expressed that a man must be able to spend his money on calling her as it shows his putting in some effort to call her.
Feminism has gradually gained grounds among many women across the world, including Nigeria. The feminist views seek for equality between both sexes. Should this not mean equality in the amount of investments placed in a relationship, monetarily, emotionally and otherwise?
Well, Toke Makinwa has expressed that being a feminist does not mean women are at war with men, because women should try to please men as much as men do please women. She added that such apparently distorted views on pleasing a man is the reason she does not call herself a feminist.
She consequently, referred to feminists as “a bunch of angry and bitter women walking through life, angry at everything and begin to blame it on the man”. Indirectly expressing she’s a feminist, she still emphasised that her man.
She however, vehemently expressed that she does not like to refer to herself as a feminist as she believes being a feminist does not prohibit you from doing thingss to please your man. Though she omitted whether or not she would frequently call her man or leave it as his duty.
The socialites’s remarks have reulted in a mixed reactions from Nigerian social media users.
A number of twitter users have outrightly criticised her for her views.
