The women are the Somalia´s last hope. The men have proven themselves to be spineless prostitutes. These incompetent cowards must be replaced.

It would be unfathomable to expect the men to bring any form of peace in Somalia. The chain of qabiiliiste warlords dividing and selling the country for their own personal interests, had proven to be immoral, irresponsible, bigots, sexists, and traitors. For more than two decades they degraded the country as much as its citizens, women that is. In fact, those men's actions warrant a tribunal to hold them responsible for decades of unprecedented destructions.

Unfortunately the clan system is a hindrance for those tribunals. Those men who have been making life miserable for everyone will hide behind the clan system, and people will blindly forgive them just because they are clan members. Women need to take a seruous part in the leadership of the country, but what are the chances of that happening when female leadership to the clan system? Somali men are soooo stupid!!! Bimbos!

Surely, that clan system provides them with unparalleled immunity and will continue to be effective in taking a toll on women. However, Somalia needs special kind of women; women who can interrogate the single handed society (Somalis)designating women as the non existing beings, women who can disturb the cultural assumptions about sexual attitudes starting with the Somali family arrangements so that to breach the demarcation between Somali man and Somali woman. Still, the possibility that those women would encounter great deal of opposition to their engagement is very real and high risk. And so, we're back to square one, unfortunately; How can women get around these bimbo men and their clan system?

If only Somali men could get some real skills, the clan system makes them lazy, because it teaches them they don´t have to do anything, just by being men of a certain clan entitles them to everything and this is why they are clinging on to the stupid system, because without it, they are nothing. LOL.

We will never move forward thanks to the clan system.

A man becomes a boqor without having any relation to royal family and without the existence of a monarchy in that country but because of the mythical favouritism created by death men. Very fake system. Further, IF they assisted their wives in raising the children in the diaspora, which of course is part of their duty, many marriages would have been saved.

Somali men are utterly useless time for them to man up and get in the kitchen cuz their leadership skills suck. Hopefully we will have a female president one day so we we won't be the no 1 failed state in the world:)
