Her statement went viral and led to a debate. Some criticized her saying she has indirectly disrespected her husband and called him a paedophile, others reminded her that her daughter was her husband’s child too so he should be allowed to care for her. Some told her that if she wouldn’t let her husband bathe their daughter, then she shouldn’t be allowed to bathe their son.
But there were those who defended Morayo by pointing out that there are fathers who rape their daughters and those fathers are usually trusted by their wives which is why they were willing to leave the father alone with the daughter. They added that abusers usually seem innocent and no woman ever wants to believe that her husband is the type of man who would abuse their daughters, yet it happens all the time.
Morayo has now responded to set things straight, she started by saying:
My husband is not a pedophile, he’s a highly responsible, decent man. He can never do anything to hurt any of his children.
She proceeded to add that her statement isn’t about her husband specifically but about those women whose husbands abuse their daughters yet they bury their heads in the sand because they do not want to be associated with the stigma.
She added that children need to be taught boundaries and how to demand that their bodies and personal spaces be respected.
Psychology has told us to teach children to respect their personal spaces and ensure that family members don’t come too close.
We need to define what is too close as a child.
