A very controversial ruling was passed by the Supreme court of Nigeria yesterday in Abuja, declaring that all women who have clitorises longer than 7,5 centimeters (3 inches) can now be legally considered as men.
The decision which was a unanimous one saw the five-member Supreme Court panel, led by Mary Odili rule that 36-year old Isioma Adeyemi’s request was “perfectly sound and legitimate”, ordering that her legal status be changed immediately.
Ms. Adeyemi has been in court, fighting to be legally declared a man because of her exceptionally large clitoris.
“This is the greatest day of my life! My first husband repudiated me because my clitoris was bigger than his penis, now I finally get some kind of justice.”
