EXPRESSIONS OF A NIGERIAN LESBIAN
What did you like about that introduction? That actually turned me off. But she makes some valid points.
Noooo I already read this on Linda Ikeji...please write another blog post :)
Blessings.....Everyone is someone is God's eyes. One need not heed to "man's" designation since he to is flawed and imperfect.
I didn't like the intro myself. She's a good writer and made some valid points but the article was far from what I expected. If she wanted to write about househelps and their plight, that would have been a different case but trying to marry the topic and the content of the article just didn't work for me.
Finally got round to reading the article.Now i understand why her tone hackled many..maybe she didnt sound apologetic enough 'as a member of the oppressor family' or maybe remorseful enough? Maybe through her prism, the helps were still a sub-species of human beings (that stigmatising 'we' and 'they'). Shrug.Sadly her opinion will resonate with more than a few Nigerians. Did she lie? No. If her father's only problem with helps was the singing then he is blessed. My problem with her writing was it begs the question 'to what end is this opinion piece'. 'Is she saying stop?', 'Carry go'? Saying that her efforts to be nice was not rewarded means what? That being human to helps is a waste of time? So yup, i have some issues too with her 'view point' or how she was 'unable' to put it across.
