(immigrant latina anon here who likes your blog a lot and wants to share a thought) What gets me too about the Chimamanda thing is...where is the empathy and desire to understand HER position from all these white pomo libfems? Why are THEY so certain they have nothing to learn from HER? They're so sure they know everything about our lives b/c they read a tumblr post like "uwu these silly savages were too innocent to understand vaginas" and it's like--listen to US. We're not brainwashed! (cont)

(cont) it’s like…I’m kind of on the fringes of a industry w/ a lot of well-known white trans women, some of whom I respect and admire, even, but I’m so angry rn b/c they’re…white males condescending to a Nigerian woman! And I KNOW they know SHIT about being a Nigerian woman! And it’s like…you’re really sure that one of my most celebrated and brilliant speakers on African women’s life needs to be “enlightened” by YOU, who grew up a suburban white boy??? (to be blunt about it…)
