Macy Gray and Bette Midler shared their thoughts on transgender comparisons to naturally born women. But the comments didn’t go so well with the transgender community.
During Piers Morgan’s show Macy Gray pointed out the obvious truth between trans and born women. She stated, “Just because you go change your parts, doesn’t make you a woman.”
As her post circulated social media many born women clearly agreed. No transgender female can carry a baby, nor do they get menstrual cycles, have to worry about the tampon shortage, or abortion right issues.
But even some media outlets now call the “I Try” singer a TERF. Refinery 29 wrote, “say Goodbye to Macy Gray. Gray’s statement is disappointing on a lot of levels, especially because it completely disregards the identity and humanity of all trans women, but also because Gray is a Black woman. Black trans women are being murdered at alarming rates around the world, and we’re coming off of the deadliest year for trans people on record. ”
However, Gray never stated hate for trans women. Not to mention, no legitimate argument within the article addressed the facts laying beneath the separation of natural born women and transgender women.
