Kenyan songstress Karen Kaz Lucas has moved to address and quash the societal expectation that women should have children.
Kaz, who is popular for hosting the sex-positive podcast The Spread, appeared to have been pushed to the wall as she tried to explain why she does not want children of her own on social media.
Taking to Instagram, Kaz lamented how people struggle to understand her firm stand against childbearing.
“People really struggle to understand me when I say I don’t want children,” said Kaz.
She, however, noted that she loves all the children around her.
“I love all the children around me that all my people have already blessed me with. But it’s also ok for people not to want children or the things you think women need to have based on your narrow social construct mind,” blasted Kaz.
She further stressed that everyone is different and that childbearing is sometimes beyond someone’s control.
“Not everyone wants the same things which is why we can be different. And not everyone is capable of having children,” she wrote.
The 35-year-old feminist concluded by telling off people who pressure women.
“So next time you feel the need to pressure ask someone about the decisions they make with their bodies, just remember the world doesn’t revolve around your ideals.”
