I dont have Daddy issues. I just believe men are difficult people. Sheebah Karungi
Musician Sheebah Karungi came out to clarify that she doesn’t completely agree with people who claim she is against marriage and commitment because she has daddy issues. The term daddy issues is usually used to describe women with Failing and complicafed relationships with men because they never grew up with responsible fathers. It is a sort of trauma where women believe no man can be good simply because their own father’s were also worthless.
While appearing on Spark TV recently, Karungi said that however much people believe she had daddy issues, that is so beside the point. She mentioned that the public only uses her past of growing up without a father to shut her down and not listen when she talks about women’s rights and tries to empower women.
“Maybe I have daddy issues. That could be the reason… But that’s just an excuse. They are always looking for an explanation as to why a feminist is fighting for women’s rights so they can feel good about their thinking. That one didn’t have a father, that’s what’s disturbing her… How about you who is not taking care of your kids? Are you my father? You who is beating your wife, are you my father?” she stated.
She continued to mention that men continuously do bad things like abandoning their children and the like but that does not mean she is ridiculing them because they are her fathers but rather because they are doing something wrong. She went ahead to say that women needed to be empowered to a point that they never depend on men but rather they work for themselves and achieve their own happiness.
“You are not my father but you are doing worse than what I know because I’ve never seen that… Men are not easy… They are not bad, but they are not easy. We need to empower a woman to work for herself and enjoy life. After achieving that and she no longer needs a man. I want women to choose to be will men. Not be with them because they need them. That’s where the problem is. I don’t want to see a woman worry about what would happen to her if her relationship failed. If you’re in a marriage and your husband treats you well, he respects you and your family, pays school fees for children. You’re happy, I wish you well. But if you know from the bottom of your heart that you’re putting up appearances, Let’s stop putting up appearances and save ourselves.” She mentioned
She added in her defence that she has no problem with men being around her because even her closest friend is a man and she gets along just fine with him. She mentioned that however much good men do exist, even the bad ones can not be over looked because they exist.
“I don’t have issues with men. My closest friend right now is a man. There are good men out there, but there are bad men out there. What do you do when you find a bad man? Do you get stuck because you have no options? That’s not marriage, it’s a prison. And for a man that makes a woman happy, I’m proud of you.” She concluded.
