1204 SCM7 I feel that this is a headline that should be in a RPG setting like D&D or Pathfinder, not IRL. What.
740 obtrae The river God told them to build a bridge for those girls, but that was conveniently left unheard.
2310 Bitchezbecraay River god.. how does one get a job like that? ETA: Woke up to 2k likes. That's the most I've ever had. Thanks kind internet strangers lol. I might not be a river god but I can settle for reddit god. happy new year to me! 😂
173 Papafynn Grew up in Ghana. There are plethora of these rules. They normally serve a conservation purpose or a simple sexiest. Not fishing, farming or hunting on certain days just serve a conservation purpose but like all things in a religious setting it's tied to the wishes of one deity or the other. It's B.S....the God part. Now, these girls can cross this river anyday of the week regardless of their menstrual cycle. That is to say, no one is checking. But will they dare? It's the equivalent of a Catholic stealing the bread & wine meant for the Eucharist. No, you won't burn in hell but 99.99999% of those raised to believe in the Eucharist will not dare! Solving this. You will need to convince only ONE person to change this custom. It's neither the government or the chiefs of these traditional area to stop this. You need to convince the Queen Mother. In this part of Ghana (This falls within the Ashanti Kingdom) the Queen Mother is arguably the most powerful monarch. She a woman (duh) & the Kingmaker. Convince her & she will end this in a day. Libations will poured, sacrifices made, gods appeased and BOOM.... girls can magically cross this river. It would help if the Queen Mother crosses know just to make sure the gods are indeed okay with this rule change. All said & done, it's an age old tradition and traditions die hard. Most of the girls will still be too scared to cross. Fear of malicious spirits red in tooth and claw rule our lives.
100 generalvostok Ghanaian river gods appear to be giant dicks just like Greek river gods.
129 Zaigard So this river god is weak to girls on Tuesdays and when they are menstruating?
83 Xuthor When dealing with a troublesome river god (i.e. a flood destroyed your infrastructure project) the best course is to have your army whip the water for a few days so the locals know you will not put up with such insolence. - Xerxes
216 Jack0091 River God? These rapper names are getting out of control.
59 yantrik Fuck the river god who cant make a school at the village .... Gods like these die in school (books /education) , may be that's why.
164 dipo4you I am only concerned about these kids having to constantly cross a river to go to go to school. Forget about this crazy river god, the real issue here is not menstruation but the safety for these kids. Authorities should construct a bridge.
14 HadHerses What do River God's have against Tuesdays?
