Macy Gray Is Under Fire For Making ‘Transphobic’ Comments In Interview With Piers Morgan

The singer said ‘just because you go change your body parts, doesn’t make you a woman.’

I hadn’t heard the name Macy Gray for a good few years, so it was pretty bizarre to see her show up on Piers Morgan Uncensored the other night, where she became the latest high-profile female to make her feelings clear on the transgender/gender identity debate.

Well, whatever the truth is, it seems more and more women are having the balls (pun intended) to speak out about the issue and their view that the word ‘woman’ is under threat when anyone can simply declare “I am a woman” and be uncritically embraced as such. It’s a complicated topic that I don’t really want to get too deep into, but should there be a line where people on both sides of the debate agree gender identity becomes nonsensical? And where is that line exactly? For example, this genuine, authentic Tweet on a “missing woman” from Toronto Police the other day:

Still, it sucks for all for the trans women out there who just want to live their lives as they see fit without all this divisive debating over sex and gender identity. I don’t know what the solution is but the topic is probably going to be a big one in the next political cycles of our generation. Now hit it:
