Private legal practitioner Ace Ankomah has torn into one feminist after she suggested that men who solely assign duties of the kitchen to their wives are enslaving them.
This was after the lawyer wrote a three-point piece, insisting it was an advice to his friend on how to treat and relate with his wife.
In the third point, Ace Akomah wrote: “A woman, even when she works (and every woman should work, if she can) should provide only if she wants to. But she is in charge of everything else that has to do with the home. Yes, it is her kitchen, not mine. That’s why she chose everything in there. My only space in the house is my basement. Everywhere else is hers. I don’t care. Just don’t paint our room pink. That’s all”.
He added that “I expect dinner when I get home; and meals when I’m home. You don’t have to cook it. You don’t have to serve it. Just make sure the system I have provided for produces and delivers the food.
“In the same vein, I don’t wash, clean, sweep, vacuum, dust, or do any house work. I am “DADDY.” That’s why I live in Ghana and not in the US”.
However, his opinions did not sit well with one feminist called Dela Goldheart, who expressed her disappointment at the private legal practitioner.
She questioned Mr. Ankomah’s knowledge on gender equality, while suggesting that leaving such roles solely to your wife is tantamount to enslaving her.
Dela Goldheart wrote: “I never thought I will say this about you but I guess career excellence and knowledge in law doesn't make you exceptional when it comes to issues affecting women. You grew up in a patriarchal society. The system is designed to favour you. You had no education on gender equality when growing up. But you know what? That can be changed. You have everything your wife has. I know you are smart enough to see that your wife does not use her vagina to cook or order food. And when it comes to strength, you even have more (likely). So, if anyone should work and cook, it should be you. And one more thing, the meaning of daddy and mommy has never been static. Those who improve the world understand that change is one of the factors of progress. Think about it.”
Ace Ankomah was not also pleased with the response from the said feminist and also responded with some strong words of his own.
He described her as a “twit’, while wondering if she was “stupid or deranged” to make such comments.
According to him, the lady’s comments are borne out of bitterness and personal frustration and not the true ideals of feminism.
Ace Ankomah wrote: “The problem with some of you is that you think every male think in a certain way and that it is up to you to educate us. Madam, the person who needs education here is staring right at you in your mirror.
“And where did you get the nonsense from about cooking with a vagina? Are you stupid or just deranged? Does the anonymity of social media give you the right to speak tosh to everyone? You would be proud to be associated with my wife for just 5 minutes in your life. Twit!!
“Take your personal frustrations and bitterness with life elsewhere and get the heck off my page with your angry, rabid and misdirected feminism. Learn to show respect to yourself first. You are a young woman with serious psyche issues. You need help.”
