Nigerian relationship expert, Sola Adio, who took to Twitter yesterday to drop nuggets of well-being and good health for men, was dragged into an exchange by a feminist who accused men of claiming to be the stronger sex, yet so useless.
Sola Adio had advised women to cut down the red meat they serve their husband, which he said should be replaced with white meat. He also advised women to serve honey instead of sugar, and whole meal bread instead of agege. However here’s the exchange he was dragged into following the tweet;
This exchange with a self-styled angry feminist is coming after Nigerian comedian, disclosed that he understood the concept of feminism better after meeting with Chimamanda Adichie. According to him, the celebrity author noted that there are extremist in every human endeavour, be it religous or even political.
Here’s what he wrote below;
I had one of the most interesting and thought provoking conversations of my life yesterday. such a humble and warm soul, her humility is out of this world. we argued , laughed and i asked questions, but with ease she addressed every question and i was left speechless. how can one person be loaded with so much knowledge, i totally understandd the concept of FEMINISM now more than ever before.
The concept of feminism is not only reaching out to men who stereotype woman, but also to woman who accept the stereotype and uphold it. gender should not be a limitation and if the woman is capable then she should do the job regardless.
i asked and she also cleared the air on the hilary clinton twitter bio issh, i must say that i agree with her totally. hilary didnt rise to the top because she was a wife or mother. she did so first because she was qualified to do the Job.
She also pointed out that there are EXTREMISTS in every human endeavour, be it religous or even political. so yes there are some extremist feminist too. those who totally misunderstand the concept of feminism and what it represents.
Never Judge a book by its cover they say. i naturally thought i was meeting some strong genderlised woman who wudnt even give you space to share your point of view, but she was welcoming and willing to put her facts straight to you calmly. her global exposure didnt defeat her origin. she speaks fluent igbo and understands the tenets of the igbo culture too.
