Songs are made glorifying it, deejays have females twerking in videos boasting about it, there is even an anthem about it: the wild and crazy life of a gyalis and all it entails.

When you heard the preposterous situation your bestie got you into, your immediately said ‘hell no!’ and it took almost a week for her to convince you to go. At first you were dead against it but when you realised that you have not been on date in almost two years and that the cobwebs on your ‘coochie’ has been gathering for close to three, you sighed and acquiesce.

Begging. Unfortunately for some it has become the national pass time. Requesting money is just a nice way of saying that you are begging and while some people legitimately have fallen on hard times or may need financial assistance, it has become the norm and a part of our culture to want something for doing absolutely nothing. Remittance has long been the main medium through which money flows into this island and with the corona virus causing an even more severe economic hardship on a lot more people, remittances has increased significantly in recent months.
No one is perfect and so when it comes to bad behaviour neither gender is without sin yet still men get pelted with more stones as they are said to be dogs and do doggish things like cheat, be disrespectful, inconsiderate, or worse are abusers or dead beat dads. Yup their reputations have preceded them in some instances but if men are such dogs why do women bother with them?
