The BBC has released it’s “Most Inspiring & Influential Women of 2021” list. There are at least two transgender women on there. It’s not the first time that the BBC has included a so-called trans woman on the list since it launched in 2013.
There is no such thing as a trans woman. It is nonsense. If you are endowed with a penis or you were born with one and subsequently had it lopped off, then you are a man.
Why doesn’t the beeb list the most influential trans people and reserve its influential women list for real women? I’ve emailed the corporation by way of asking. I’ll be amazed if I receive a reply.
For the record and for the 1,000th time, I have nothing but compassion for people who live with gender dysphoria or body dysmorphia. I’ve stated repeatedly that we should be respectful and understanding of how people live their lives.
I’ve worked with a trans woman before. I’ve interviewed more than a few. I have no problem with them whatsoever. If you’re a trans person and you are facing workplace or societal discrimination, I’ll stand by your side. I won’t stand for that.
But, trans women are not women. Trans women should never be considered for roles that have been reserved for real women. They should not compete in women’s sports. They should not be allowed access female wards in hospitals, nor women’s prisons.
