Chimamanada shows trans-genders no mercy.

The award winning author feels insulted when the experiences of trans-women are equated with that of women.

She says before a man becomes a trans-woamn, he has already experienced the privileges accorded to men, so it is impossible to compare this with women who have never lived with these 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.
