Is he?

Graham Linehan asks the age-old question: Is Eddie Izzard a lesbian?

Alright, everyone, let’s get out there and start asking our favourite celebrities the following question: “Is Eddie Izzard a lesbian?”.

Ask everyone you can think of, from intellectuals like Jameela Jamil and Frankie Boyle all the way across to such LGBT giants as Michael Cashman and Linda Riley. Let’s get people on the record as saying that Eddie Izzard is a lesbian.

Because, by now I think more and more people are waking up to the fact that, yes, this is literally what is being proposed. It is why lesbians have been lying down in front of Pride Marches and such. It’s why Maya Forstater lost her job. It’s why there are branches of the LGB Alliance opening all over the world, despite the fact that it’s not easy being a branch of the LGB Alliance, with the BBC, for example, unable to make up its mind whether they’re a hate group or not, in part because they never seem to find the time to speak to them.

It’s currently de rigeur among Twitter’s blue checkmark set to call the LGB Alliance a hate group. Their crime? They don’t believe that Eddie Izzard—and the many other crossdressing men like him currently claiming trans status— are the same sex as they are.

“Is Eddie Izzard a lesbian?” Ask them the question. Let’s see if they can go that far. Let’s see if they dare go on the record saying such a disgraceful, homophobic thing. Let’s see how long they will play along with a sick joke by Eddie that erases the reality of women, and lesbians in particular, in the most careless, reckless, selfish manner.

Eddie, with respect, you’re not a lesbian. That’s homophobic and sexist and I’m sure you don’t want to be homophobic or sexist, no matter how many people are currently telling you that you’re stunning and brave, such as the famously ethical and rigorous Pink News.

If he were an actual lesbian no one would pay the slightest attention to him.
