Why is the African vagina considered a ‘bad omen’?

The African man is a complex creature. He will arm himself and cross into enemy territory to steal livestock at great risk so that he can pay bride price.

He will lurk in the shadows of the village spring, kidnap a maiden, hoist her upon his shoulders, carry her kicking and screaming to his hut, detain her under lock and key with the sole purpose of forcing her to love him and become his wife.

He will pound an army of children out of her, but remain dissatisfied. So he will marry another, and another – because he loves children. But the same African considers the vagina unclean, and women and sex – the very things that bring forth the army of children he loves – a bad omen. Read this story here.
