I don’t think Women and Trans-Women’s Issues can be Considered the same – Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is a Nigerian novelist, nonfiction writer and short story writer. The "feminist" has had wise words about issues surrounding feminism that even global celebrities like Beyonce has quoted.
In a recent interview, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie with Channel 4 said that it is difficult to equate the experience of trans-women with that of women. According to Chimamanda, a man who switched gender after being accorded the privileges the world grants to men, cannot be said to have the same experience as that of a woman who has lived without those privileges.
She said: “It’s about our experiences. It’s not about how we wear our hair, it’s not about having a p*nis or a v*gina, it’s about the way the world treats us,” Chimamanda said, referring to “the whole problem of gender in the world.”
