Akon has an interesting solution on how to end domestic disputes -- legalize polygamy. As Akon sees it, men we're never meant to settle down with just one women and if they could have several mates, then they'd be much more even tempered.
“Women aren’t built to mate with more than one party … men are. If America adopted that culture, there would be less domestics disputes.” Akon tells TMZ. “At the end of the day as a male we are natural breeders by nature. We can’t even escape it if we wanted to.”
Akon himself has claimed to have three wives and says he should be allowed to marry as many women as he can afford.
MY 2 CENTS:
- Is there any truth to what Akon is saying?Would domestic abuse go down if men could have several wives? Or would they just abuse more women?
- Isn't domestic abuse about men exerting power and not about men lacking freedom?
- Are Akon's comments offensive to women who have been abused?
- What about cultures in Africa and the Middle East that do allow polygamy? Don't men still abuse women there?
