He said what???

The Beeb reports a scandal:

The prime minister has said people should not be criminalised “for stating simple facts on biology” in response to JK Rowling’s criticism of Scotland’s new hate crime law.

Cue global gasps. What can he mean?? People should be beheaded for such an outrage.

The author took to social media to hit out at criticize the Hate Crime and Public Order (Scotland) Act which came into effect on Monday.

Seriously, Beeb – stop that. Stop calling dissent you dislike “hitting out at.” It’s childish at best. Some metaphors are best left on the cutting room floor.

In a series of social media posts, Ms Rowling described several transgender women as men, including convicted prisoners, trans activists and other public figures.

What do you mean “described as”? Of course they’re men. That’s what “transgender” means in that sentence.

The prime minister would not be drawn on whether he supported her approach, saying that it was “not right for me to comment on police matters, individual matters”. But he added: “We should not be criminalising people saying common sense things about biological sex, clearly that isn’t right.”

Well, apologies for agreeing with a Tory, but it can’t be helped.
