How many times does the world have to say that you do NOT go for the kids!?

Adults going for children has got to be the biggest punk move ever. You deserve whatever you get for talking about these babies.

Reject the notion that you are supposed to be at a certain place by now.

Donโ€™t measure yourself to some colloquial set of social constructions.ย

Adaeze means the daughter of a king in Igbo. Igbos do not believe in Kings. They have a traditional democratic system where women and men have their peer groups and are represented. I think the name is ironic. Kings never truly existed in Igboland till the colonizers arrived. Ada in Igbo means daughter. First daughter to be precise. It is one of the most beautiful names in Igbo. It is also a title for first daughters. Umuada are a group of women from the same community who meet up to discuss on how to improve their various communities. In Nigeria, Igbo women can be seen every Sunday afternoon with colorful wrappers, running to meet up with their fellow women from the same village no matter how far away from home they are. I used to watch in amazement as they helped each other, warning abusive husbands and praising women who were doing great in business while helping others who needed help. I grew up surrounded by such women who would not let you lift a finger during your celebration. You should see them, cooking together, laughing together and celebrating each other. Igbo men would say, no matter what you do never make Umuada angry. Simply put, do not hurt their sisters.
