Trans women are biologically male — in fact being male is the sole qualifying criteria to be a trans woman — and women are biologically female. Male people are not female people and therefore trans women are not women. Those are the facts.

“WE had women arriving through the crush in tears. One woman had liquid thrown at her as she tried to enter. Even the men who attended were shocked at the scale of the harassment because they’re not normally subject to this.”

Those were the words of a WPUK spokeswoman, reported in this newspaper [The Morning Star]. Shockingly, the context was a meeting to discuss women’s rights on the fringe of the Labour Party conference.

How on earth did we get here: to a place where women meeting to discuss sex-based rights and the trafficking of women and girls are accused of hate speech and denounced as “TERFs?” TERF stands for “trans exclusionary radical feminist,” but it has become a dreadful slur — akin to bitch or whore.


The charge against these women was that they are “anti-trans” because they do not believe that trans women are biological women. That was enough to denounce them as bigots and dehumanise them like the victims of some modern-day witch hunt.

However, those women are right. Trans women are biologically male — in fact being male is the sole qualifying criteria to be a trans woman — and women are biologically female. Male people are not female people and therefore trans women are not women.
