Actually the law

Keir Starmer throws women overboard.

Asked to define a woman, Starmer replied: “A woman is a female adult, and in addition to that trans women are women, and that is not just my view — that is actually the law. It has been the law through the combined effects of the 2004 [Gender Recognition] Act and the 2010 [Equality] Act. So that’s my view. It also happens to be the law in the United Kingdom.”

It doesn’t “happen to be” the law, it’s a law because people have lost their fucking minds.

You can’t turn men into women by passing laws. You can change definitions under law, but you can’t change the underlying reality. If you want to pass laws that say whales are goldfish, knock your socks off, but whales and goldfish will still be what they are. Some bad laws have been passed, but men are still not women.

The Labour leader called for reforms of the Gender Recognition Act, under which people diagnosed with gender dysphoria who have lived in their acquired gender for at least two years can apply to be legally recognised.

“The process that people have to go through does need to be looked at,” he told The Times. “If you talk to anybody who’s been through the process there’s a real issue about respect and dignity.”

Noted. Now talk to women who have been raped and gone to a rape crisis center only to find that its CEO is a man. Notice that there’s a real issue about their dignity and respect for them.

He called for a “more considered, respectful, tolerant debate about these issues”. Starmer added: “I don’t think it furthers the interests of anybody to continue the debate in the way that it’s been going on now for some time.”

He wants a more considered, respectful, tolerant debate about this in the same breath in which he tells us that men are women. How about some consideration and respect and tolerance for us? Women? Half the population? The half of the population that keeps the whole population going?

Comments have been turned off. Of course they have.
