Nigerian-American writer Nnedi Okorafor blasts T.I. for monitoring his daughter’s virginity

Nigerian-American writer, Nnedi Okorafor has slammed rapper T.I after he revealed that he takes his daughter to doctors to ensure her virginity is intact.

During an interview, T.I said:

“Not only have we had the conversation about keeping her virginity, we have yearly trips to the gynaecologist to check her hymen

“Yes, Yes I go with her. This is what we do Usually, like the day after the [birthday] party, she’s enjoying her gifts. I put a sticky note on the door: ‘Gyno. Tomorrow. 9:30.’

“So we’ll go and sit down and the doctor will come and talk and the doctor’s maintaining a high level of professionalism. He’s like, ‘Well, you know sir, I have to, in order to share information’ — I’m like, ‘Deyjah, they want you to sign this paper so we can share information. Is there anything you would not want me to know?’ ‘See doc? No problem.’

“So then they come and say, ‘Well, I just want you to know that there are other ways besides sex that the hymen can be broken, like bike riding, athletics, horseback riding, and just other forms of athletic physical activity.’

“So I say, ‘Look doc, she don’t ride no horses, she don’t ride no bike, she don’t play no sports. Just check the hymen please and give me back my results expeditiously.’

“But I will say as of her 18th birthday, her hymen is still intact.”

Reacting to the rapper’s post, Nnedi Okorafor wrote:

“My God, I cannot believe that T.I. interview was real. There’s more than the headline. Look at what he says when told that there are natural ways a hymen can be lost: “So I say, ‘Look, Doc, she don’t ride no horses, she don’t ride no bike, she don’t play no sports. Just check the hymen, please, and give me back my results expeditiously.'”

She added: “Backward. Hypocritical. Entitled. Sexist. I feel sorry for his children and I wonder about their mother/s.”
