One unpopular opinion is causing a stir online after a Mzansi man offered unsolicited advice to his followers and others who cared to listen.
A Twitter user @malusi_February decided to open a can of worms by, once again, bringing the age-old debate of gender expectations into the spotlight.
He shared a screenshot of a message without a caption except for a location or pin emoji, indicating to others that his tweet was the place to gather.

"Until she becomes your wife, don't perform any husband duties. She has parents. Let them take care of her."
The tweet caused an immediate ruckus as Mzansi social media users went at it to unpack the relevance of the sentiment.
Both genders clamoured tirelessly over whether or not men ought to look after women until they are married, with the overriding consensus among users being that women were "only good enough to offer s*xual favours" to their male counterparts.
Unpopular opinion causes frenzy
The post attracted nearly 3 700 likes, 900 retweets and drew in over 130 comments. Briefly News took a short left into the comments section to bring readers the loudest reactions.
"Judging from replies from women under this tweet, I can confirm that most women have nothing else to offer other than s*x."
"Why nenza ngathi s*x benefits only the man??? S*x should be out of the equation in giving something in a relationship, I give money wena ung'nikani?"
"I think men who make these types of statements are ones that either just purely stingy or they are just economically incapable of taking care of "their" woman."
"And until he becomes your husband, don't perform any wife duties."
"Until she becomes your wife o kope sex from your parents nawe."
"Social media will ruin everything": Saffas vote to keep relationship drama offline
In other saucy news, Briefly News reported that some peeps are very happy to head online to air their dirty laundry, letting all and sundry into their sheets to share in the activity within.
Briefly News previously ran a question poll on Facebook, asking users to share their thoughts around whether they think it's wise to let others in on their relationship drama.
The post read:
"Do you think it's appropriate to share your relationship problems on social media? Why?"
Not surprisingly, the post piqued the interest of many Saffas, who were happy to air their thoughts around the matter.
However, there seemed to be the unabiding consensus that it is best to keep relationship drama offline.
One user, @Lucious Singh Rams said:
"People only share when it's lovey-dovey, but they don't share when they're nyissed."
