#TRENDING in #POLITICS: Presidential aspirant roasted by #twitter users for saying she’s not a #feminist

Eunice Atuejide, a presidential aspirant, has received backlash on social media for refusing to be identified as a feminist.

Atuejide is seeking to contest the 2019 presidential election under the platform of the National Interest Party (NIP).

She took to Twitter on Wednesday to say she dislikes being referred to as a feminist because “the word means too many things, many of which I don’t like”.

Atuejide said it is neither a man’s world nor a woman’s, arguing that everyone deserves a fair chance.

“Again, I’m not a feminist! I actually hate it when people call me feminist because that word means too many things, many of which I DON’T LIKE! EVERYONE should have a fair chance. Be yourself and be treated right being yourself,” she wrote.

Ladies who won’t let men hold doors for them cos it diminishes their value? What does feminism mean?”

NIGERIANS REACT

Atuejide’s tweets were received with mixed reactions, mostly criticism.

While some supported her stance to “be different,” others accused her of “misconstruing” the concept of feminism.

Ada Akunne@SheisBoki

That lady DID NOT have to call herself a feminist. She also MOST CERTAINLY DID NOT HAVE TO refer to feminism with that silly condescending tone. The people she’s trying to please will most certainly NOT vote for a woman and she just lost the people that might have.

I’m one of such people she lost. My disappointment is indescribable. Yes, there are those who abuse ‘feminism’, but her angle, tone, and relationship with the picture is just off. People even called her to order, but she kept digging. Glad her true colour came through on time.

Dear aunty Eunice @eunice_atuejide just in case you didn’t see or read up the meaning of feminism before you tried shading @AdichieSpeaks words see pictures bellow. Now this is your own unmaking. It’s a pity . Bye madam . @instablog9ja

None of the things you have listed have anything to do with feminism. Maybe if you did the bare minimum which is a simple google search or pick up a book. No one is asking you to be a feminist, the least you can do is educate yourself to avoid looking stupid.

Uwani Aliyu@TheUwaniAliyu

I love Eunice for letting us know one more person not to vote for 💖 a true hero of our time!

Your tweet is representative of uniformed beliefs about feminism that have failed women in the past and continues to fail us today. Use your platform wisely to educate, and avoid contributing to the very harmful rhetoric that can further marginalize women.

Wangai@LaideAkin

But I doubt they would have excluded a feminist from this gathering. 😊 Well, anti-feminists won’t vote you because men are the head and women are the neck/tail. And feminists won’t vote a woman who hates the word Feminism. So where does this leave you?

Mynd Oluwamynd@oluwamynd

Yet they are attacking @eunice_atuejide. She has said she supports equality but she cant stand under the umbrella because of the actions (of a lot) of feminists.

She sees that there is no way she can without shame stand with some so called feminists. But yeah attack her

Interesting. Two of the world’s most powerful women, Germany’s Angela Merkel and Croatia’s Kolinda Grabar- Kitarovic, won’t identify as feminists.

Feminism does not lie in being a house wife or a career woman or the superiority of one over the other. Feminism is the choice. That a woman is free to decide to be one or the other. And still be respected and seen as an equal. This is what feminists have been fighting for.

Joseph@AMASIKE

She clearly isn’t prepared to renege on her godly and family values in order to appeal to those who attempt to reduce the quest for justice to a battle of the sexes.

Bobby Ezidi@datsbobby

Feminists died and made sure you can vote, be voted for, get a job, go to school, watch tv, not be aborted while in the womb, earn same salary as men, become an executive in a company and not just the low level receptionist etc. Grab a book, ur ignorance is showing.

MY OGA.@Istandfortruth1

This your tweet is very funny. I think you should be the one to grab a book. She doesn’t want to identify as a feminist, why force it down her throat? Has she in anyway forced you not to be a feminist. You didn’t get the message. Chill out.

Pst Donald David@iamnalds

You all are dragging her for nothing, what she is simply saying in abc is that, she doest believe women and men are the same that the men are more equal than the women period, feminism preaches the convex. I hope you understand now.

Please let all these “potential candidates” come and be disgracing themselves one after the other before February. So we know who we are crossing off the list.

BYE EUNICE!!!!!

I’m sure you know christians who are adulterers, liars, thieves and cheats. And you still identify as a Christian. Because you know what Christianity is. Do the same for feminism.

👑 DaddyMo 👑🚀@officialdaddymo

This Auntie Eunice with professional photo shoot in her display foto and a future ‘presidential aspirant’ just scored own goal with that feminist rant and exposed a crassly flawed mindset on what it’s about.

Sometimes it’s better to say nothing and appear to have small sense.

Wearing suit and doing professional photo shoot inside display picture whilst ranting about feminism does not automatically mean you have sense. – Eunice Atuejide. August 1st 2018.

Zulqy™@zulqy77

Isn’t what @eunice_atuejide is doing what y’all claim feminism is all about? Daring to venture into a Male dominated Field contesting for highest office in the land where she can make impact to see reforms y’all clamour for implemented. Bridging the Inequality Gap?

Kwami@KwamiAdadevoh

Safe to say Eunice isn’t anybody’s darling candidate but at least she’s got herself noticed.

There’s some value in that

Don’t ask me if it’s positive value o
