Ifikie Wazazi: Spare Us The Hypocrisy, The Society Is To Blame For The Raunchy Internet Behaviour



One of the raunchy photos trending of the teenagers.

For the last two days, Kenya’s social media has been filled up with crocodile tears and cosmetic concerns with faked surprise following a campaign aimed at exposing the explicit photos teenagers have been posting in their social media pages.

I’m saying this for the fact that, these things have been happening right before our eyes but passed as normal until someone started a campaign then suddenly everyone activated their moral cards.

While it’s convenient to blame the kids for the ratchet behavior displayed, it exposes the hypocrisy, escapist nature of the society that would rather die, then own up to its mistakes. One thing for a fact is that the society went bad ages back and the teenagers are the fruits of what was sowed. They’re a direct reflection of the society that has normalized explicit behaviors, a society that has normalized sexy affairs between young older people in sponsorship arrangements.

Today’s teenagers are a reflection of a society that is passing out nudity as art, normalized prostitution by encouraging the socialite culture which is a soft term for prostitutes. Why would we expect the young generation to be better when the old already went to the dogs. These young people don’t create anything, they simply adopt from what surrounds them. We should be soul searching instead of mere castigating as to where the society went wrong.

Parents, guardians, influencers, brothers and sisters, we’re largely to blame, we’ve abandoned the duty of raising these young people and left them on their own, to learn on their own. We no longer give life directives. When was the last time your young one down to speak some sense to them, then we act all surprised when they live their own ways.

Society had run out of role models, we’re having more single mothers than ever and many kids raised without their fathers, this affects their growth and development but nobody wants to touch it. Parents are spending time more at work and social places, giving kids zero attention and only left in the hands of teachers and the cruel world to pick life lessons from.

In fact, the only remaining time models are the Huddah’s who the kids spend most of their times studying. The Vera Sidikas are now the virtual parents to these kids, you know They’re not Sunday school teachers and they don’t post-church photos, and again we act surprised when our kids take photos as if they’re auditioning to cast on Pornhub.

Traditionally, in Africa, the duty of raising kid was the society’s, today with civilization or in this context, destruction, it has become a parent’s obligation. This why we overlook bad behaviors by teenagers around and ignore the fact that it’s not your son or daughter, brother or sister. And since their parents don’t bother either like the Society, they adopt it as a norm.

Like a tree, kids will only grow according to according we nurture them, watering, trimming, there are no miracles here. If we want better kids then we must be better adults. This starts all the way at home where hold parties, behave in the most ratchet ways, what we say and do, the kids pick every single detail.

I’m not going to act surprised at what I’m seeing on the trending topic because I’ve seen grown-ups do the worst and this they picked from us. If you want them to do better than we must start being better and please can you start paying attention and speak to your sons and daughters, most simply lack guidance in their lives that’s that’s they don’t see any harm in being raunchy for internet love, after all, internet is giving them attention and love, something lacking in most homes.
