Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, has caused a frenzy online after she said that it is difficult to equate the experience of trans-women with that of women.

In an interview with Channel 4, award winning writer, said this is because 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.

“It’s about our experiences. It’s not about how we wear our hair, it’s not about having a penis or a vagina, it’s about the way the world treats us,” Chimamanda said, referring to “the whole problem of gender in the world”.

Her statement is correctly getting mixed reactions.
