Nigerian Men Would Rather Do These Things Than Iron Women’s Clothes

July 18, 2022

First of all, where did women even get the audacity to send us, alpha males, on petty errands such as ironing their clothes? It’s the fault of FemCo, Fumilayo Ransome Kuti and the first ever man to agree to this nonsense. Let me tell you now, men hate ironing women’s clothes. 

In fact, these are the things men would rather do than iron women’s clothes:

Chew their jeans

I’d personally eat a bucket of stones before agreeing to iron a woman’s lace. Whyyy are they so complex? 

Refuse to kiss their homeboys goodnight

Do you know what it means to ABSTAIN from platonically kissing your homeboys goodnight on the lips? If the choices were between doing this and ironing women’s clothes, many men would sadly pick the former. That shows you how much we hate ironing women’s clothes. 

Abstain from lying

Imagine waking up and deciding not to lie. As a man, you might not be able to wrap your head around this concept. But if what was at stake was not having to iron some shimi or palazzo ever again, my brother, you’d consider it.

Imagine a world where the names Messi and Rolando come up and nobody argues. Where you just hear, “Yeah, I guess they’re both good footballers.” That’s a world where men have had to sacrifice so much to never again iron women’s clothes. 

Throw away their console

Hey babe. Would you rather throw away your PS5 or iron this stoned lace six-piece gown? 

But if you eventually fall into the Godforsaken trap of women, and have to iron their clothes, here’s what you should do?
