THE GOOSE AND THE GANDER
I was listening to a programme on radio earlier today. The presenter was quoting a Nigerian musician who said, ‘It will be wickedness for me to stop my 15 year old daughter from having a boyfriend.’
My focus is not on the morality of the statement. Those who know my stand on moral issues can already guess what it is.
I was struck by the general consensus. It seemed as if many felt it is WRONG for a girl to have a boyfriend at such a TENDER AGE but it is NORMAL for a boy to have a girlfriend at that age.
My question is, ‘Who will such a boy have as a girlfriend?’
A younger girl of ten, eleven, twelve, thirteen or even younger?
A slightly older girl?
A lady at least ten years older?
Or probably a sugar mummy or sugar grand mummy?
I remember the expression, ‘What is good for the GOOSE is good for the GANDER’ (Male goose) and I just wonder!
