“The Moment You Tell Most Men You’re A Doctor/Nurse They Bring Up Marriage” – Female Health Worker Laments
A Nigerian Nurse who identifies as @Tejumola on Twitter has revealed that most men when they hear about their kind of profession they start to think about marrying them.
According to Tejumola in a series of tweets, men zoom into discussing marriage with them the moment she tells them she is a nurse or a doctor without ever wanting to know their personality and understand who they are.
According to her, most Nigerian men regard female doctors as trophies, and that most of these guys are reluctant to help them because they feel they are wealthy.
Tejumola furthered that males drove around the Lagos University Teaching Hospital looking for female physicians and nurses.
Her tweet reads:
“It’s quite interesting and sad to see that Nigerian female medics are hardly ever desired for who they are. The moment you tell most Nigerian men you’re a doctor/nurse, they bring up marriage because to them, they’ve found a trophy.
They fixate on that little detail and get so immersed in it that, as far as they’re concerned, that’s all they need to know about you. They just want to be able to say “My wife is a doctor.”
Your entire personality doesn’t matter, they are not willing to spend on you like they would other girls, they just want that “trophy” in their house. And you spend so much time in school that by the time you graduate, these men think they are doing you a favour.”
