Novelist and feminist, Chimamanda Adichie has stirred a debate by saying it is difficult to equate trans-gender fema|€X to real women.
 
The writer shared her view on the issue in an interview with Cathy Newmand on Channel 4 News, which was aired on Friday.
 
Asked during the interview whether it matters how you arrived at being a woman and whether trans-women can be considered real women, she explained it wasn’t difficult to accept that trans-gender fema|€X can be equated to real women.
 
She said, “When people talk about trans-women, my feeling is that trans-women are trans-women. I think that if you entered the world as a man with the privileges that the world accord to men, and then sort of switch gender, it is difficult for me to accept that we can equate your experience with the experience of a woman who has lived from the beginning in the world as a woman and who has not been accorded those privileges.


“I don’t think it is a good thing to conflate everything into one; I don’t think it is a good thing to talk about women’s issues being exactly as the issues of trans-women.”
