Here’s a great clip from the U.K., but to set it up, here’s how things went. Presenter Piers Morgan replied to a CNN story on “individuals with a cervix” in late July.
Do you mean women? https://t.co/IThpse7fST

Member of Parliament Rosie Duffield liked Morgan’s tweet, which set off the controversy. According to the BBC, the issue went straight up to Labour Party leader Keir Starmer, who said it was “not right” to say only women have a cervix. Health Secretary Sajid Javid jumped in, saying Starmer’s remarks were a “total denial of scientific fact.”
That brings us to Member of Parliament Rachel Reeves, who was asked if it’s transphobic to say only women have a cervix. Watch how flustered she gets.

They started this debate. Now I guess they don't want to have it.

It is so confusing trying to be woke while sticking with science

“Woman” has no meaning but we’re supposed to say “people with cervixes”.

Labour trying to be all things to all people just for votes.

The two most senior Labour politicians in the country are now publicly disagreeing with each other over whether men have a cervix or not. And people are wondering why the Tories have a large poll lead

This is cognitive dissonance in action. She knows the right answer, but so desperately needs to avoid saying it. This is what happens when you’re forced to deny reality. I feel quite sorry for her.

I don’t. This is her job. If she doesn’t understand or care about the impact of this on women, she is not fit for purpose. Think of these young teens, queuing for double mastectomies… We do not have time for her spluttering, self serving performance.

Shocking display of evasion. You'd have thought she'd have her answer ready.
People can say that they are what they are not. Fine. Making us agree with them is not fine.

No, it's an objective biological fact. Gender, is a subjective social construct. When scientists examine a body from, say, an archealogical dig, they can conclusively prove which sex it is but not, its gender.

Omg the cringe, the dance, the backtracking.

Surely the Labour media team were able to come up with a more coherent answer in the last 24 hours? This is a woman who served in government, don't forget, she's very experienced and should certainly not be presenting herself as being this out of her depth

This is why many people on the left nowadays betray peoples trust. They lack conviction, the ability to say what they really think. They are desperate to appeal to the mob and don’t know how to properly frame and argument or back up anything they say.

What a car crash. She clearly knows the answer is "no" but can't bring herself to say it. Embarrassing.
— exploneuro (@exploneuro) September 27, 2021
She actually sounds terrified of this question. It’s utterly bizarre
