For the past few weeks, the hashtag #MenAreTrash has been a top trending topic with thousands of women taking to social media to share their stories of violence and abuse using the hashtag. But what do men think?
The Saturday Star took to the streets this week to ask them.
Edwin Motseokae, 20: As much as I’m offended by the hashtag, I’m not against it. Men do stupid things. I’ve seen it from my older brothers and friends when they are drunk. Part of me feels it’s unfair to put all men in the same category though. The majority of us respect women. However, when I watch the news and read newspapers I learn that some girl has been raped or murdered. This is becoming a habit now. So, I don’t blame any women for thinking that all men are trash.
