A pair of Grammy-winning female entertainers are now targets of the trans mob’s rage after daring to insist that “feeling” like a woman or even “changing your parts” doesn’t make you a woman.
Actress Bette Midler and singer Macy Gray both ran afoul of transgender ideology this week with common sense statements on the subject.
Gray spoke on “Piers Morgan Uncensored” Monday on trans athletes and acknowledged that “everyone’s gonna hate me.” She then said the obvious, that even changing body parts doesn’t make a person a woman. Gray called growing up as a little girl an “epic book.”
As she put it, “woman is a title that you earn.” Wishing to be a woman doesn’t give that experience.
Also on Monday, the outspoken liberal Midler tweeted that women are being robbed of bodily autonomy and even lives. The three-time Grammy winner and “Hocus Pocus 2” star is loudly critical of the Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe v. Wade.
But she drew the line at not being called a “woman.”
Noting the abject silliness of being called “birthing people,” “menstruators,” or “people with vaginas,” she added, “don’t let them erase you!” Midler said every person on Earth owes women, which of course is true.
What is also true is that common sense does not sit well with the transgender mob. The whole ideology is deeply rooted in anti-common sense, from referring to one person as “they/them” to choosing if you are male or female this week.
Irish gay rights activist and drag queen Panti Bliss called it “anti-trans panic fake nonsense.” And both Gray and Midler now carry the title of “TERF.” This is “trans-exclusionary radical feminist,” the label applied to women’s rights supporters who do not subscribe the gender fluidity.
Others, of course, slam the pair for being on the “wrong side of history.” That view is hardly universal.
Gray on Tuesday retweeted a supportive post from “Harry Potter” author JK Rowling, who is a favorite target of the gender confused. Rowling said she “bought Macy Gray’s entire back catalog.”
On HBO’s epic “Game of Thrones,” the wildlings of the untamed North mocked the more “civilized” folk of the South as “kneelers” to kings. Likewise, the trans mob demands everyone be kneelers to their ideology, and even being a lifelong leftist does not exempt one from bowing.
