Make-Believe vs Reality
By me for @spectator: "Mordaunt is wrong: transwomen are male, and women are female. Male people are not female people, and therefore transwomen are not women." [Mar 2021]— Debbie Hayton 🏳️⚧️🏳️🌈 (@DebbieHayton) July 8, 2022
Does Mordaunt (now a contender for No. 10) still believe that transwomen are women?https://t.co/YAN2H7mxi5
Debbie Hayton on the make-believe, Alice in Wonderland world of queer theory - where sex doesn't exist and people can self-identify as whatever they like.Why? Because language is important. The words woman and man are defined in Section 212 of the Equality Act 2010:
'‘man’ means a male of any age; ‘woman’ means a female of any age.'
This is what women rely on when they defend their sex-based rights. If anyone can be a woman just because they feel like it then those rights are meaningless.
