Why is Nkechi advocating for boys? Answer- Why not meπŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€If I don’t Advocate for the boychild,who will. I have several reasons why I’m advocating for the boychild.
They are endangered because we don’t think they are vulnerable,we don’t think boy’s issues need to be discussed publicly. The boychild has not been adequately addressed, extensive indicies shows more boys are dropping out of schools,alot of school programmes and event are tailored around the girl child only. A typical teenage boy is always suspected to be a criminal,a young teenage boy with an Android phone,wearing a tattoo and dread,or dresses colorfully is a target for police Harassment and brutality. There is already a narrative that states that once a boy is aroused,has an erection ,he is consenting to sex so he can’t possibly be raped. Our school curriculum isn’t paying attention to the academic needs of the boychild. This is why I’m sold out for the course of the boychild.

Why isn’t it a man doing this fine job of protecting boys ? Anwer- Why not a womanπŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€I believe I ‘m specially called to be the voice of the Nigerian Boy, their voice needs to be heard loud and clear. Maybe because I’m a mother to a son and wants to create an enabling environment where boys have platform to share their stories,their pains and access psychological intervention. I’m unapologetically a boy’s advocate.

Why does a boy need protection? Answers- 1 in 6 boys is vulnerable to be sexually abused before they turn 18 years. The spate of sexual Violence on boys is alarming in our society. There has been reported cases of sodomy,gang rape and transactional sex between male adults and little boys. If we don’t expose boys to basic sex education,they can suffer sexual abuse. This is a major reason why we must pay attention to boys in our society.

Does Nkechi Idiaye ‘s posts provoke you to some kind of thought route or action? πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€I have been told I’m quite controversial on social media with my close mark opinion on solely boys issues. A couple of years ago I met with alot of resistance from women who felt I was queer to drive boy’s Advocate as against the girl child but with time people began to see reason to and understand my heart for the boychild. I began preaching the gospel of comprehensive sexuality education, reproductive health rights for boys to parents,teachers and boys, it was an eye opener as alot of parents began to understand the reproductive cycle of boys.

What’s she even talking about when she says Boys Lives matter?
Answer- When I say boyslivematter,I’m simply drawing attention to issues pervading the boychild in our society. We have for decades paid attention to the issues challenging the girl child neglecting boys. So we have had an astronomical rise in juvenile delinquency and not enough correctional facilities to accommodate troubled and broken boys. We see all around us ,out of home boys,street boys,rise in drug abuse ,cyber crimes and robberies. If we don’t pay critical attention to boys,our society will suffer alot of set- backs and social anomalies.

And this whole talk about feminine boys …. Hahahahahah! the talk about the feminine boy steps from a heart to love ,care and speak up for any boy irrespective of his gender and sexuality. Unfortunately we still live in times where the term masculinity is defined by our own social construct,norms and traditions. If a boy dose not behave f a certain way within the construct of what masculinity, something is faulty. It’s important we accept and respect boys who are effeminate,boys who love to dress like girls,put on make ups,play with dolls,assume the role of the opposite sex in fantasy play. They re human and deserve to be treated humanely.

Thank you for coming on the show Nkechi, looking forward to morevinteresting conversation with you as regards boys.
