Ex-BBC journalist reveals she was told to delete gender-critical tweets contesting claim that ‘males can be women’ – then was disciplined by the Corporation when she refused

An ex-BBC journalist has revealed that she was told to delete gender-critical tweets by an internal disciplinary board then reprimanded by the Corporation when she refused.

Cath Walton, who worked at the broadcaster for 26 years, had to go before an internal BBC hearing after writing that men cannot scientifically be women on social media.

In the series of tweets about the term ‘cisgender’, meaning someone who identifies with the sex of their birth, she said: ‘It implicitly states that females are a subcategory of women. Contrasting ‘trans women’ and ‘cis women’ is in effect accepting that males can be women, thus expressing an entire belief system which as yet has no scientific support.’

Although the tweets were written two years ago Ms Walton chose to speak out now after BBC Radio 4 host Justin Webb was found to have broken impartiality rules after he said on air ‘trans women, in other words males’.

She claimed that she, like Mr Webb, was simply stating a fact and was concerned about the rising use of the term ‘cis’ by BBC journalists, even though they are taught not to adopt activist language.

‘I knew I had to tell this story as soon as the ruling about Justin came out. These conversations about how and when we should tell the truth about sex and gender are very live in the back rooms of all broadcasters, not just the BBC,’ she told the Telegraph.
