Singers Macy Grey and Bette Middler have both been attacked and branded as ‘TERFs’ by the angry trans mob on Twitter after they both made statements asserting that women’s rights trump gender ideology.
Grey stated in an interview that a biological male having surgery to change gender does not make that person a woman.
When asked what a woman is by Piers Morgan (purely interested in stirring up controversy for his own ratings, but hey ho), Grey replied “I would say, ah, a human being with boobs… And a vagina.”
“Now that’s a little … getting confusing, the whole he, she, they …” Gray continued, adding “I will say this, and everybody’s going to hate me, but as a woman, just because you go change your parts doesn’t make you a woman. Sorry.”
Grey added, “If you want me to call you a her, I will, because that’s what you want. But that doesn’t make you a woman, just ’cause I call you a her and just ’cause you got a surgery.”
“What women go through is a completely unique experience and surgery or finding yourself doesn’t change that.”
