The recently released data 2014 World’s Development report ranks Jamaica as the 2nd poorest country in the Caribbean in terms of Gross National Income per captia. I have taken the data and broken out the data to show countries from the english speaking Caribbean and was not surprised to see the levels to which this once wealthy country has sunk.

While that isn’t much of a surprise since this nation under the PNP hasn’t been able to muster up anything remotely near proper growth for the pass twenty odd years in power that could move Jamaica out of the quagmire it is in it does make rather sad reading. Jamaica is only ranked above Haiti and if the Haitians get there act together we could end up at the bottom of the pile.

10 Things Jamaican men can get away with that Women Can’t

Cheating-Men-640x387From 3Jamaica

1. A Jamaican man can have as many ‘outside’ children as he likes and his wife is expected to forgive him and continue the relationship. This is a big issue since if a woman within a relationship gets pregnant for an ‘outside’ man, the relationship is over. Very few Jamaican men will stay with a woman “who annodda” man impregnated. Men who do so are considered fools and lose respect from their male peers. People might say women who stay in these relationships have a choice to leave but in reality some do not. Before you condemn these women, be mindful of the facts, never react without knowledge of their situations.

2. A man can sleep with as many women as he likes and still be considered a very eligible partner while if a woman has been around the “block” a couple times, she is no longer ‘marriage material’. This might only be a perception for women with less virtuous reputations and a history of promiscuity do end up with a good partners. What is trash to one man is gold to another. It is unfair that women are not allowed by social sanctioning to play the field as much as men without any form of reproach. A woman cannot do what a man does and still be a lady.

3. A Jamaican man is not expected to wash underwear. As a matter of fact, a lot of men within the lower economical class stress the notion of not having their rags in the same basin as a woman’s panties. While women will wash a man’s undergarments. Some men will not even put panties on the line or take them off. To wash female underwear is considered emasculating while female’s washing a man’s brief is seen as traditional.

4. A man can stay out all night and all day if he likes but if a woman decides to live this “pon the road” lifestyle, men complain. It was only recently a female acquaintance explained that her man will go to work, come home and leave again to chill with his friends. She said that she decided to give him a piece of his own medicine by stepping in and out as she liked and spending less time at home. She said he claimed that she was not living a “good gyal lifestyle” and was becoming a “road terrorist”. He found it unpleasant the idea that a woman could love the road as much as him and he might not be alone in this perception.

5. Men are not chastised as much when they abandon children but women are considered lower than the bottom when they leave their children. It is widely assumed that women have a more intense bond with children due to pregnancy and only a heartless woman could leave her child. Men can pass their children on the streets without as much as a glance but a mother is suppose to be committed to her children. Men can spend less time with their offspring, refuse to attend school meetings, have zero contact and it is accepted with little to no reprimand.

6. When a man remarries he can bring his new wife to the house he shared with his previous partner. Women especially if the house was built by their first partner are not expected to bring another man into the home. She can live there with the children as long as she does not bring any man there. A woman will help a man build a house and he will throw her out and bring in another woman while if a man builds a house with a woman and the relationship goes sour, he will insist that “no man nah live a him yard“

7. When a man likes a woman, she is expected to like him back but if a woman crushes on a man and he is not interested she is expected to leave him alone. A man will ‘psst’ at a female and if she refuses to give him any attention, he will pursue, insult and even manhandle her. If a woman likes a man and he is not interested and he makes his disinterest known, the woman is suppose to give up and leave him alone. Why can’t men leave a women alone when they show they are not interested?

8. Men who insist that they do not eat and yet expect women to eat (from) them. Oral sex has always been an issue that highlights the hypocrisy of some Jamaican men. Not all men are uncomfortable and some will admit that they will do it but a vast majority will “nyam bible leaf” that they do not believe in men doing oral sex yet seem to enjoy receiving it from a female. How can you enjoy something you do not see yourself doing? That is just plain hypocrisy. Like Kartel bashing Lisa Hype and then endorsing the same concept in his later music.

9. This ties in with number one. Many Jamaican men love to give bun (cheat) and expect their women to forgive and move on. A man will insist that the woman ‘get over it’ and stop nagging him about his indiscretion. Now make him a get a bun and it’s a whole different scenario. He will cuss, bawl and wail over the alleged cheating and find it very difficult to forgive his woman. His friends who had no qualms about encouraging him to cheat will say ” Don’t be no Bottle torch or One Burner” will boost him to leave him woman cause “the gyal diss him”. So hypocritical.

10. The Jamaican man can carry himself any way in a relationship but not so for females. Men think they deserve the most beautiful and sexiest girls and want to carry themselves as them feel like. Men say it is their spending power that a woman is attracted to and not their bodies so they can come with “big belly, face full a hair and two days don’t bathe or brush teeth” and females are suppose to accept it once they are spending their money. Women now have to be perfect in every way and less attractive men will call girls ugly and fat when they have big belly, no teeth and dirty clothes swag.

    It saddened my heart when I read or hear of the overall demise of Jamaica economically and politically which in the end creates a massive brake down of social order and security. The biggest portion of the blame should first be place on the government for their lack of vision and stead fast leadership along with their implicit accommodation of crime and corruption. The two main political party are a national let down and disgrace because while the country was in deterioration both parties had equal amount of time in power and yet the country and its people was place from wealthy Jamaica to the second poorest country in our region. The second group of people who should carry the other half of the blame is the crooked structure of the private sector who benefits from endorsement to exploit and oppresse the majority of the population who may I say are a black majority who is being undermined and downgraded on the world’s economic scale and not the government nor the private sector because we know they like offshore banking. The solution, Jamaica needs a new restart and a change of the old traditional political vanguard because they are not in tune on any positivity for the vast majority of the Jamaican people, they are mostly and only for themselves. The two major political parties is out of touch with the youthful demands of the young generation and the universal demand of growth and standard, we have long pass going into the future, we are in the future. At the end of the day I have little faith that Jamaica can be a fully functioning society with law and order and the right development with either of the two main political parties, or the political atmosphere that is presently dominant in the country. Jamaica needs a true legitimate Nationalistic rebirth where every expatriate Jamaican like duelers of the island can be actual players and even decision makers, because many Jamaicans overseas would love to be active participants in elections and other interest along with being able law and security from violence or other preventable crimes. Jamaica can be a safe place,it can have economic success, it can have lasting peace and security only, if the politicians are Nationalistic enough with the ambitions of the masses to first guarantee law and order and economic success for every one

    PJ Patterson has been Prime Minister for 16 years in Jamaica and achieved nothing. With Jamaica’s climate advantage for solar, alcohol and wind energy, its leaders still sit on their rear wondering what to do to make Jamaica energy efficient which would begin to turn our economy around. Jamaica though having good rainfall and very fertile agricultural land, still will not fulfill their quota to the European Community, which would be a big advantage for them, then there are many more industries that could thrive in Jamaica including dairy products. What a shame. We need sales and business people with a vision and not political ideology and political preaching, Seaga, Manley and PJ have done too much of that and nothing for Jamaica. These people do not care and did not care for their country men, even the present lack luster, boring and unproductive bunch.

    • Janet Brown says

      I totally agree with Dandi comments above.
      I left Jamaica in 1967 as a teenager I have visited on 4 occasions since then. Each time I return the poverty that I have witnessed was gut wrenching.
      The begging was too much even grown men, I was shocked.
      This is my Island where I grew up we were a proud nation.
      Lack of Public transport especially in the Country areas.
      Private Mini Vans and Taxis packed with people like sardines. These people don’t have a choice sometimes.
      The roads are full of pot holes and weeds. In fact they were much better 30yrs ago. Duncans our Town Center looked like a ghost town.
      I felt saddened and angry because we have not progressed.That area and I am sure that there are many more similar or same, on the Island, reminds me of the land of look behind [in terms of moving forward.]
      Prime Ministers comes and goes only to line their pockets and do very little. It’s saddening because you see the struggles, the pain, the poverty, the hardship.
      Jamaica is now the second poorest country in the Caribbean.
      Very Sad.
