Writing, aside actions is what helps us to express our thoughts, ideas, emotions and any inner feelings to the public or the world. I really love writing, especially motivational quotes and words of inspiration, to help people understand certain things and learn from it as well.

A writer, known as Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, who's a Nigerian novelist and feminist, has written a long piece detailing her side of the tale in her four-year fight with Akwaeke Emezi.

Writer Chimamanda Adiche who has a wealth of work under her belt – including novels, short stories, and non-fiction wrote a three-part reflective essay.

The 43-year-old's piece, called - It is obscure: which is a true Reflection in Three Parts- went viral on Twitter, attracting internet users with its honesty and clarity.

The Nigerian writer is known to focused much of her work around feminism. Titles of her better-known work include Purple Hibiscus, Americanah, and We Should All Be Feminists.

Without wasting much time, let's have a look at her trending story;

My feeling is trans women are trans women. I think the whole problem of gender is about our experiences and how the world treats us. It’s not about how we wear our hair, whether we have a vagina or penis. If you lived in the world as a man with the privileges the world accords to men. Then you switched gender. It’s difficult for me to accept that we can then equate your experience with that of a woman who has lived from the beginning in the world as a woman; who has not been accorded those privileges that men are."

Chimamanda was, however, keen to note that she was "saying this also with sort of the certainty that transgender people should be allowed to be. Right?"
