Chimamanda Adichie Says It's Wrong To Use Feminism As An Excuse To Insult A Man by nairalaila: 9:42pm On Sep 22, 2018
Feminism advocate, Chimamanda Adichie who is currently in Nigeria, has revealed that her best selling book 'Americanah' will be adapted into a series, not a movie.

According to the renowned author, Danai Gurira is writing the script for the series which will also feature Lupita Nyong'o as part of its cast. Some major highlight of the evening was her talk about bride price and why she finds its commercialism disgusting.

Chimamanda Adichie also told those present that it is wrong to use feminism as an excuse to insult a man.

Aunty Chi, this might just be coming a little tad too late I'm afraid. Your retinue of converts and staunch adherents have taken your initial gospel, hook, line and sinker. I am very sure they won't be reading this from you because they are already in flight and at an altitude impossible to make a detour from.

Such is the weight carried by words uttered or endorsed by a world-renowned figure as you are, to whom a lot of people look up to.

You could be more mindful of your choice of words and how you express your views as they are sure to be influential because they can get taken literally by many who are susceptible to misconstruing what your original intentions are.

Enjoy my siggy

I believe one black guy has finally *hit* the right spot. Welcome back. For those quoting me blankly just to soothe their sores, "yes i know she's married to a white man".

cheesy


She is using this feminism to advance her international image, that's all. NL ladies are copying people who are feminists in public but needs a man kondo in secret.


FYI, Naija Feminist Role model/President, Chimamanda is married with a kid. She cooks, has a man to go home to, respects him etc.

Role Model assistant, Linda 'celibate' ikeji has just given birth and probably wishes to have a hubby to go home to.

Be wise!

Feminists, before you fight against a man, be able to toast a man, take a man out, allow a man do you hard-to-get

SHE is happily married to a very responsible and noble man.
Chimamanda is actually married to Dr. Ivara Esegee, a mixed-race medical doctor currently working in Baltimore, Maryland, in the United States of America.


Sweet dreams Guys.

nonsense


feminism in Nigeria is a mere word and a joke on ladies. feminism is something these ladies hide to air their grievances and displeasure for a guy that hurt/maltreated them, they failed to examine guys they come across but will rush here online splitting feminism

Retaining your maiden name after marriage is # 1 first way of disrepecting your husband or a man so until you change to bear your your husband name only nothing you say that I would listen to. I have absolute nothing to do with any woman I found to admire you.

lol.

so a man's honour is tied to his surname?

let me enlighten you about surnames.

Do you know some places in the world, women are allowed to keep their maiden name? it's not required to change to the husband's name

Do you know that in some places, they don't even use surnames?



Before you say I'm fabricating stats.
http://time.com/3940094/maiden-married-names-countries/



Where did you come from please? if her husband is happy with it, then who are you for heaven sake?

it's obvious you have insecurity issues, I pity the woman that would want to stay with you in the first place.
