I was discussing an initiation ceremony with a friend. Young males were always given school after the ceremony to become responsible persons, in all aspects of life, there is also schooling on how to treat the womenfolk.

The male attitude to women has changed. I do not have justification for this but from observations, I came up to my own conclusions, that men have lost their sense of responsibility, their contribution to the development of society have decreased, they have gone lazy.

They have more time for other things and less time for family and their roles as men. Not all men, mind you but it is becoming more common.

Women work twice as hard to keep the family and working women are hard hit, the men contributed less a quarter when she is giving a whole. The rural women are doing traditionally a man's job. This is a trend that I have noticed in my society.
