Missy Gray and Bette Midler face backlash over comments criticized as transphobic.

Missy Gray and Bette Midler face backlash over comments criticized as transphobic.

It seems that Gray, best known for her 1999 hit song “I Try”, was expecting the backlash During an appearance broadcast Monday on Fox Nation, “Piers Morgan is uncensored.”

Gray said after Morgan brought up the issue of trans athletes in sports.

Morgan replied, “Right, do you feel it?”

“I know for a fact,” Gray replied.

“Being a kid is a complete epic book, you know? And you can’t have that just because you want to be a woman,” she told Morgan, adding later, “I don’t think you should be called transphobic just because you don’t agree.”

Midler similarly sparked controversy When I tweeted on Monday, “Women of the world! We are being stripped of our rights over our bodies, our lives, and even our names!”

She tweeted, “They no longer call us ‘women’, they call us ‘birth people’ or ‘menstruating women’, and even ‘people who have a vagina!”‘ “Don’t let them erase you! Every human on earth owes you a debt!”

Both of their comments did not go well.

What is the point of ‘femininity’ that TERFs (a term defined as a feminist that excludes the rights of transgender women from their advocacy of women’s rights) like Massey Gray and Bette Midler are so desperate to hang on to it? Writer Ariel Chinkel tweeted. “The trans women that exist doesn’t make me any less of a woman, no matter how different our experiences may be. It’s basically ironic frankly.”
