“I’M SORRY FOR MEN BECAUSE THEY CAN’T HAVE BABIES” – CHIMAMANDA NGOZI ADICHIE

Leave a Comment
Nigerian author, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, has said that she feels sorry for men because they can’t have the experience of giving birth.
She said this during an interview with online entertainment publication, Vulture, where she spoke about how motherhood has affected her writing career.


She revealed that becoming a mother opened up “a new emotional plane” that has contributed to her art positively.
“My baby happened, and it’s important to talk honestly about this, because having her changed a lot.Having a child gets in the way of writing. It does. You can’t own your time the way you used to.
But the other thing that motherhood does — and I kind of feel sorry for men that they can’t have this — is open up a new emotional plane that can feed your art.”

Ronaldo is signing a four-year contract with an annual salary of around €30m. In Italy clubs have to pay the same amount in tax, which takes the total cost of the transfer to €340m (€100m transfer fee plus €240m in salary and taxes).
“I only have feelings of enormous gratitude for this club and for this city,” Ronaldo wrote in an open letter to Real Madrid fans. “I have had nine absolutely wonderful years at the club.
“Real Madrid has conquered my heart, and that of my family, and that is why more than ever I want to say thank you: thank you to the club, the president, the directors, my colleagues, all the staff, doctors, physios and incredible people that make everything work.”
He finished his letter by saying: “Thanks to everyone and, of course, as I said that first time in our stadium nine years ago: Hala Madrid!”

Wedding photographer beats up groom who wanted to marry a 15-year-old girl in Turkey (Photo)

A wedding photographer from the eastern Turkish province of Malatya has been declared a hero on social media after he beat up a groom upon learning that he was going to get married to a 15-year-old girl.



The photographer, Onur Albayrak admitted that he beat the groom and tried to stop a wedding after learning that the bride was a child.
“Yes, the reports are correct. A child bride means child abuse, and no force in the world can make me photograph a child as a bride,” Albayrak said on his Facebook account on July 7, adding that he did not regret his actions.

According to local media reports, Albayrak was hired to photograph the wedding at Malatya’s Turgut Özal Nature Park on July 5. When he noticed that the bride-to-be did not look like an adult, Albayrak reportedly asked the groom about her age.
The photographer reacted angrily when the groom answered that the bride was only 15 years old.

The two men soon started fighting, and the groom’s nose was broken in the quarrel, according to the reports.
“The groom had come to my studio some two weeks ago and was alone. I saw the bride for the first time at the wedding. She’s a child, and I felt her fear because she was trembling. The groom attacked me as I was leaving,” Albayrak said, noting that he is “happy to manifest his reaction.”

According to Turkish law, the minimum age to marry for both men and women is 18. Only in exceptional situations, a judge order is required to marry off 17-year-olds. It is not legal to marry younger in any condition in Turkey.
