This perfectly describes the average Nigerian woman today.
they grow up to be women who take pretense as an art form
Case in point, look at this excerpt from an article about when to know if a woman is in the mood to have sex:
Clearly, point 1 is an error, some women dress provocatively because they love fashion or for the attention, in my experience, unless she’s standing on Allen Avenue past 12:00am, it’s never because of sex.
Point number 2 is what caused Unilagolodo to be accused of rape today, so go figure.
Point number 3 is sounds so stupid, I’ll just let it slide.
Point number 4 is sounds even dumber, my GOD the writer is exactly what is wrong with Nigerian society today. How does a female visitor telling you she’ll be leaving soon some how translate to “have sex with me” ?
Point number 5 makes a bit of sense only that it’s not enough.
Point number 6, obviously the writer has never met women that enjoy music and dance.
Anyway, my point is that, Nigerian women are not sexually liberated. Most of them continue to objectify themselves by seeing all things sexual as a walk away from purity (because purity is everything to them).
To be fair I do not blame women alone, I also blame guys. Some guys spend most of their adult years chasing everything that wears a skirt then come on social media to talk about how women are hoes, how women of nowadays “have spoil”, how a woman must be submissive like you need submission to validate your manhood.
In the end, Chimamanda is right, it’s not enough to educate girls about decency, boys also ought to be taught about boundaries in human sexuality but then again, sex as a topic is none existent in Nigeria’s educational system.
