It’s ‘crap’ to say women attract rapists because of how they dress – Joselyn Dumas

Ghanaian actress, producer and tv show host Joselyn Dumas has come out swinging against the tendency to blame women’s dressing as the cause of rape and sexual harassment.

Dumas strongly denounced that type of thinking, labelling it as ‘crap’ and saying women should have the ability to dress without fear of rape or harassment.

The actress espoused these views on the latest episode of her talk show program, ‘Keeping it Real with Joselyn Dumas’, which aired over the weekend on GhOne Tv.

In a candid conversation with two engrossing guests, Miss Ghana 2010 Stephanie Karikari and Yaa Boadi Okudzeto, the discussion on the show centered around the difficulties women face in the corporate world in trying to get their ideas across and how to navigate the constant attention from men who want something in return for striking a deal with you.

Commenting on the issue, Joselyn pushed back against the widespread perception that the way a woman dresses has something to do with a man deciding to pursue her sexually.

“I read somewhere that women attract some of these men and these rape issues because of the way they dress…I think that’s crap.” Dumas forcefully said.

“If men are moved by what they see so I can’t wear certain clothes?” the actress queried.

Blaming the victim who suffered a crime is wrong and should not be encouraged and the actress made no bones about that fact.

The panel also tried to decipher why some of these men who are married still try to initiate sexual encounters with ladies who come to see them for a business deal and Stephanie Karikari said it’s because most men are wired to cheat, in others words, ‘dogs’.

“Men are dogs,” the former Miss Ghana winner said without mincing words.

After both Dumas and Boadi interjected that ‘some men’, she added: “A lot of them, I would say three quarters, especially were we are in West Africa, Ghana.

“How many men don’t cheat?” she asked rhetorically.

The conversation continued in this remarkable fashion for the entirety of the program, which airs every Saturday at 8:30pm on GhOne TV.

‘Keeping it Real’ is the brainchild of the Ghanaian actress and is produced by Sparrow Productions and Virgo Sun Productions.

Most female celebrities who are ambassadors for products exchange sex for those positions – Afia Schwar

Controversial comedienne, Afia Schwarzenegger has indicated that most female celebrities have had contracts to become ambassadors for products and institutions because they exchange their sex for such positions.

According to her, she has not had the opportunity to be an ambassador for a product or an institution because she has not cheapened herself to sleep with the big men.

Afioa who was speaking to Accra-based Kasapa FM indicated that some female celebrities although may want to comment on some happenings in the country but cannot do so because they fear a man may come to shame them because he has slept with them.

She said “Some of us we’ve not been brand ambassadors for certain products and institutions because we didn’t allow people to have sex with us.

They’ve not made me the face of whatever because I did not allow them to sleep with me, but that is fine with me. From the way I’m loud mouthed, if I had cheapened myself and allow people to sleep with me, I wouldn’t have been able to speak my mind freely as I’ve always done. You see, most of these popular girls are not able to publicly comment on issues because, they fear they’ll be shamed by men who have slept with them”.

She noted that most big men in Ghana are wicked and will only agree to help young ladies after they have had sexual encounter with them

“A lot of the big men in Ghana are wicked, they only help young after sleeping with them, it’s only a few that are God-fearing.”

I need help to raise my children – Joyce Dzidzor begs Ghanaians

Ex-HIV/AIDS Ambassador Joyce Dzidzor Mensah has called on benevolent Ghanaians to aid her to get out of the deep financial crisis in which she currently finds herself.

She disclosed that she has no means to raise money to support the education of her three children as a single mother.

The reason, she stated, is that no one wants to work with her because of her HIV/AIDS status.

“I am currently not living with my children because I don’t have a place to stay. I am in deep crisis. My medications are also very expensive and I can’t afford it…,” she told NEWS-ONE on Thursday.

“I invested all my money into a barbering shop and a small food joint but people started complaining the food is infected with virus and so people shouldn’t buy from the joint. Everything has collapsed and I lost all my money,” she added.

In December 2014, Dzidzor publicly announced that she lied about her HIV/AIDS status for years and had never tested positive for the disease before working with the Ghana AIDS commission as an HIV/AIDS ambassador.

After that declaration, she has been on several media platforms trying to defend her actions, even though she has received widespread criticisms from Ghanaians and the Ghana AIDS Commission.

However, in 2016, she made a shocking U-turn to say she, indeed, tested positive for the virus. She had to lie about her status to protect her children from stigmatisation.

“It looks like because I have done campaigns and my face is everywhere, it is difficult for people to even work with me. So right with my situation as a single mother with three children and no job, I am pleading with the general public to support me with money to start something to take care of my children,” she pleaded on Thursday.

“I realised that I have destroyed my life just because I tried to protect my children at school by denying my status. I am in crisis now and if people are able to support me and my family, I am willing to come back to work on TV and radio to educate people on HIV & AIDS. When I sleep, I always dream I am still teaching children about HIV & AIDS,” Dzidzor added.
