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 by the five-member Supreme Court panel, led by Mary Odili, ruled 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.
Experts also disclosed that over 600 other Nigerian women who have sufficiently big clitorises can also apply for a change to their legal status.
Nigeria is the second country in the world to offer women with large clitorises the option of being legally considered as men.
