Conservative culture warriors have stumbled across the perfect question to ask left-wing politicians: Can a woman have a penis? If they say ‘No’, that’s guaranteed to get them into hot water with their woke activist base, but if they say ‘Yes’ that’s guaranteed to antagonise vast swathes of the electorate, including most women. The career-destroying effectiveness of this killer question was demonstrated by Nick Ferrari when Labour leader Keir Starmer appeared on his show for his regular phone-in slot. MailOnline has more.
Starmer, appearing LBC radio for his regular phone-in, was asked about trans athletes and the success of Lia Thomas, a trans woman who won the 500-yard freestyle title at the women’s NCAA championships.
The victory has sparked a debate around trans athletes taking part in competitive sport, with critics claiming they may have an advantage over other participants.
But Starmer said it is for ‘sporting bodies to decide for themselves’ who can and cannot be included in events.
Asked if a woman can have a penis, Starmer said: “I’m not… I don’t think we can conduct this debate with… I don’t think that discussing this issue in this way helps anyone in the long run.”
