BARBADOS (Naked Departure) — Hello, I guess I refer to you as Naked. I’ve learnt that your blog is very popular here and back home, blogging is also an effective platform to discuss various issues as well. That being said, I would like to share my experience with you since I’ve been here in Barbados.
I’ve recently gotten a temporary job here in the island and although I find most of the people to be very intellectual, many, let me express that not all, of the men that I’ve interacted with seem to always have sex on their minds and are ready and equipped with an insidious, manipulative intellect to fool their women. I am not sure if the women are easily fooled because they are stupid or they just live on a cloud called ‘denial’.
For example, I am currently staying in a very nice neighborhood that seems to have the ‘so-called upper class citizens’ like business owners, doctors, lawyers and a few millionaires. Almost on a daily basis, I would see three of these men going to and from work and the things they use to say to me range from mild to shockingly filthy. These men are married and flirt with me and other women in the same area as well. I am not sure about the other women but I explained to all three men that they should be ashamed of themselves because they have wives, children, dogs…I mean the whole ‘picket fence’ façade! I had to tell one of the men that he must be a rapist of something, I mean the things he was telling me.
Of course, they started barking and ranting at me in the dialect that I don’t understand, so I guess it did not matter; I just ignored them. But what shocked me more was when two of the men went and told their wives that I was ‘coming on’ to them or that I was interested in them sexually. Well, suddenly the wives of these two men who were once mannerly and approachable started behaving unmannerly and hostile. That’s when I realized that these two men made sure they prepared the wives before I was able to tell them what their nasty husbands were up to.
All I can say now is that I wish the best for these women who are continuously being fooled and probably murdered slowly but surely (depending on the strain of pathogen they get) by STDs, which can lead to cervical cancer. If they are lucky to dodge these, embarrassment and long-term stress may still take them to an early grave. But I must say that I feel for these women who feel like that can’t do better.
I guess that’s why men like these ones are so bold in their disrespect and disregard for them. I wish them the best! Observant Foreigner
