Yes, morality is subjective but Is it only Dr. Nyanzi to observe moral standards? Look at all those ganging against her, what morals do they uphold? Do you want to say all those people in Amazon or some other parts of the world are immoral because they are nude? I think supporting bullies, dictators and corrupt guys is equally morally wrong, don’t you think so?
And by extension some of you seem to suggest that since many Ugandans are corrupt by international standards, that is acceptable in our society, therefore a moral act. Many of those now tormenting Dr. Nyanzi I guess uphold high morals in our society.
And please, let us avoid labeling or dismissing people’s approaches simply because they divert from approaches used by some others. There is no single mathematical formula or method to use with regard to social issues like feminism. Whereas you can somehow state that 2+2 = 4 which can also be challenged by some few savvy with figures and say for example that 2+2=10 base 4, not 4, why not. So, even scientifically you have to be careful when disagreeing.
Which points to one thing, let us follow the arguments or methods used to arrive at the conclusion. We are quick to judge, how I wish we got interested to ask Dr. Nyanzi herself why she chose that method; even without asking her, we could accept that her method has created much public awareness of what is going on at MISR, had she continued with her silence which is your best method of choice, may be problems would continue simmering and eating the institution at the foundation and the public would be shocked when it collapses beyond repair.
I can say to me, Dr. Nyanzi’s choice was very effective to arousing awareness at the institute, forget about your morals obsession, please. Can you imagine what would happen in parliament if Hon. Speaker undressed to protest sleeping in parliament, don’t you think all those sleeping MPs would wake and never sleep again?
