M.anifest and Edem Debate Over Feminism

Rapper, M.anifest talks about the feminist movement. According to him, he worries about why a lot of men are unwelcoming to movements that seek best for women.

He made this statement in a Twitter discussion on feminism started by rapper Edem yesterday.

Edem tweeted earlier to ask about feminism. His question started the whole debate. He tweeted:

“I need to get a lot of insight into this whole Feminist thing so well no girl would just go and liar my daughter to hate men….Who got the wisdom bag on feminism in gh?.” 

M.anifest and Edem chop it up about feminism

The ‘godMC’ replied

“It’s a dangerous place to begin my brother. Similar principles apply just as being pro black is not being anti white. It’s easy for the internet to cast aspersions on struggles for equality for women under the guise of its a “hate men” movement. We have to do better us men.” 

However, another Twitter user replied to his sentiments:

“MOST of it [feminist advocacy] is a hate man movement, more of a coup detat against a natural order. We don’t need equality,we need equity(Balance,not same-ness) M/F are wired differently socially, biologically, psychologically. There are advantages in respect to some natural predispositions.”

M.anifest cautioned Kofi not to wade into an argument that seeks to deprive one off their rights because of their sex.

“Be careful of these nature arguments. It’s been used by many an oppressor. Organs and hormones should not stand against equal pay, etc or support misogyny. Why does a pro women movement make so many men uncomfortable? How does it immediately become about hating men? Baffling.”
