Johnson stated Wednesday to parliament that although transgender people are allowed in the country, “should be treated with the maximum possible generosity and respect,”He was feeling it. “when it comes to distinguishing between a man and a woman, that the basic facts of biology remain overwhelmingly important.”
Some transgender activists take issue with the term being linked to sex, since a ‘woman’ is defined as an “adult human female,”Transgender women can be biologically born male. Keir Starmer, Labour Party leader, declared earlier this month that he was on the side for the transgender movement. “a woman is a female adult, and … trans women are women.”
Certain feminist groups disapprove of this statement. They argue that biological males can’t be “women,” and that allowing these people into traditionally women-only spaces – like sports leagues, changing rooms, and female prisons – unfairly discriminates against biological women and in some cases places them in danger.
Sunak is not alone in his struggle to define “high-ranking” officials. “woman”In recent days. In the US, President Joe Biden’s Supreme Court nominee, Ketanji Brown Jackson, was pressed on Tuesday by Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-Tennessee) if she “could provide a definition for the word ‘woman.’”
“No, I can’t,”She replied. “Not in this context. I’m not a biologist.”
Fox News’ Tucker Carlson and Charlie Kirk, conservative pundit, were suspended by Twitter following the exchange of comments suggesting trans-women are men.
