Caitlyn Jenner is right – transwomen are not women

The former pin-up of the trans movement has become a vocal opponent of gender-identity insanity.

Caitlyn Jenner – former Olympic athlete, Keeping Up With the Kardashians star and one-time pin-up of the trans movement – has uttered one of the great heresies of our time.

Last week, appearing on John Cleese’s GB News show, The Dinosaur Hour, Jenner stated plainly that transwomen are not women:

‘I live my life as a woman. But I’m not. I consider myself a trans person. That’s who I am and what I’m interested in.’

This isn’t the first time that Jenner has broken ranks with the trans movement, telling an interviewer in 2021 that it ‘just isn’t fair’ to allow men to compete against women.

That these things have become unspeakable heresies tells you what a mess we’re in with gender ideology. However one ‘identifies’, it is simply not possible to change biological sex or for a man to become a woman. To insist that ‘transwomen are women’ is to perpetuate a lie that harms women and girls – especially in sports.

Good on Caitlyn Jenner for refusing to go along with it.
