Keir Starmer criticised over trans comments

Sep 27, 2021 by

from Christian Today:

Sir Keir Starmer has come in for criticism after saying it is “not right” to insist that only women have a cervix.

The Labour leader made the controversial comments while speaking to Andrew Marr on Sunday morning.

He was asked on The Andrew Marr Show on BBC 1 whether it was transphobic to say that only women have a cervix.

Starmer replied: “It is something that shouldn’t be said. It’s not right.”

He spoke to the BBC as the Labour Party holds its annual conference in Brighton.

Controversy surrounded the event even before it began when Rosie Duffield, Labour MP for Canterbury, announced that she was withdrawing over threats from trans activists.

Now spineless Starmer won’t even defend biological reality, by Brendan O’Neill, Spiked: “In this interview, in that moment, he made a terrible moral error and a catastrophic political choice. He chose to align with the reality-denying agitators of the increasingly unhinged identitarian ‘left’ rather than with women, scientific truth and the vast majority of working-class voters, who know that women and men are different. Starmer has made many mistakes over the past two years, but his failure plainly to say ‘No, it is not transphobic to say only women have cervixes’ could prove to be the final nail in his political coffin.”
