Simi Educates Followers On Gender Equality

Nigerian Singer, songwriter and actress Simisola Ogunleye popularly called simi has taken to her twitter handle to speak about feminism and also advocate for gender equality.

The issue of feminism is a debatable one with so much number of people for and against it.

The singer began by tweeting:

“Feminism makes many men feel so vulnerable, because you find that society that gave you your “superiority card” is starting to know (and want) better for women – and you donno wtf to do. Lol Gag is, if you support us, life is better for everyone. Don’t be afraid.”

She added:

“I have a lot of female friends that shy away from feminism because they’re hung up on “some feminists are bitter”. Which one is your own? Do ur part. Feminism doesn’t alter anyone’s personality. But the core of the movement is the same. Don’t let anyone decide your path for you.@

Some Twitter users called her out for her views and she responded to some of their tweets.

“I love when women stand for there rights and also know what they worth in the society….but the act of feminism? I don’t really like the idea.”

And Simi replied:

“But that’s what feminism is. Fighting for our rights to choose and be what we want. Fighting to get the things we deserve. Don’t you want that for us too?”

“Real feminism shouldn’t make any guy feel inferior. My problem is when some ladies think they can be a man, I’m like nah, we r all equal but at the same time we’re not. Everyone has a part to play and what I can’t do, you can and what you can’t do I can. Kelege megbe.”

Simi said in response:

The only reason women have probably ever wanted to be men is – the privileges men have enjoyed. Besides that, why will any woman want to be a man? And now we want to share those privileges across genders equally. We’re different with diff strengths/weaknesses, but of equal value.”

@igwe_of_Lagos slammed Simi for her views, writing:

And here i was thinking you have sense.”

Simi replied to him:

“I’m not offended by this. Lol. You know everything I’m saying is true. I don’t want bad for men. I just want more for women.”
