Actor, Richard Mofe Damijo writes an open letter to 'the boy child'

The veteran actor took to Instagram to write an open letter to the boy child.

In the letter, he addressed the effects of social media on the male gender, how to address a lady and the importance of respect and fear of God.  Read the beautiful piece below...

Dear Son, I'm writing to you today because there is no day "internationally" set aside for the "boy child", so, tired of looking on in horror as you constantly shock and embarrass me, this is from daddy to you.
I'm shocked at how many of you carry yourselves here on social media. I am shocked at the things you L O L at. I am worried at the way you speak
to and about women. I am frightened at the kinds of things that inspire and motivate you.
I am concerned that the women who get your attention are not the virtuous, brilliant types but the frivolous party, skimpily clad ones.
I am disappointed to see that the pictures you fall over yourselves double tapping are not the inspirational quotes or of clean, beautiful modest women but of women with their breasts, thighs and bottoms spilling over.
I cringe at how many of you blatantly use swear and curse words at women like it makes you cool.
I am distraught to see that many of you insinuate that a man who loves and stays with one woman is a wimp, that a man who publicly displays and speaks about his love for his woman is a "jew man", that a man who is more interested in deeply spiritual and intellectual pursuits should be shamed...
I am worried son, deeply worried.
My dear son, being uncouth, indecent, unintelligent is NOT cool and contrary to what you think, the man who stays on social media looking for naked ladies to validate, smart people to shame, brilliant people to tear down, celebrities to attack are NOT men but little boys battling low self esteem issues.
A real man loves God and is not ashamed to show it. He loves and respects women. He does not ask for nudes and if any misguided woman sends him her nudes respectfully deletes it and not use it as a blackmailing tool. A real man reads, yes, he reads a lot. He picks his mentors wisely, thinks before he speaks and reads his comments over and over before he hits send.
Dear son, do not let the "anonymity" of social media make you a fool rather use it to shine and be kind, reasonable and sensible at all times because that is the man I desire to see you be.
Love,
Daddy

True

RMD, please continue to tell them. Don't say it only once. Say it many times. You can create your own diary online and say it repeatedly. The men folk are in trouble. Imagine one telling me I don't have the right to choose my man. Only men have the right to choose a woman. So when any man asks a single woman out, it is her duty to say yes. Biko, keep telling them. Thank you sir.

This is of the best messages I have seen a long while. Our young men and women now glorify the obscene. Pls tell them,tell us all. One love

Very virtuous and intelligent write up. May God open the ears and hearts of many to listen and change their ways. Believe it or not, love it or not; heaven and hell are real. Everyone should make a conscious effort to amend their ways and stick to things that spiritually enrich the soul. Don't be deceived by the level of evil in world. People are aligning towards the supreme God. Don't be left out. SO PROUD OF THIS WRITE UP RMD. This is the first time I have truly admired you.

Look at Father Theresa ,without different opinion there's no BRAINSTORMING ,and at your age you should know fingers are not equal, if you don't want to see or read garbage don.t subscribe to it. Freedom of speech and Freedom of expression is actually what make the world a unique and cool place . If you try to suppress the power of expression ,What you will have is closet-devils. Freedom of expression allow us to know every dimension of human thinking. I believe people call you an actor ,if that's correct ,then my friend your views should be more tolerant and liberal. Because by being tolerant a stage was giving to you to show your ARTISTIC-VIEW.

OMG! This just sent shivers down my spine. Every word was worth the read, please keep writing more of this until the very last boy reads it till it sinks! looks like they have all lost track and swayed with the illusions that social media brings. Real men respect women, real men value morals, real men are attracted to decency. Teach them please! let them know.. coming from a respectable person like you i think it would go a long way to affect these young men.
