Labour’s Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer Rachel Reeves appeared flustered during an LBC radio interview with broadcasting legend Nick Ferrari this morning, after the popular morning host asked whether or not it was transphobic to say that only women have a cervix.
“I just think that this issue has just become so divisive and toxic” said Reeves, of the simple question of human biology. “And it pits people against each other. Both groups who face discrimination in society – women, and trans-women. And I just find this debate incredibly unhelpful and- and- and unproductive, to be totally honest.”
Ferrari went on to press her over whether or not the statement of simple scientific fact was “transphobic”, to which Reeves replied after some flustered pauses: “Is it transphobic? Look, uh, I just don’t even know how to start answering these questions. I just don’t find them, I just don’t find them helpful…”
She did eventually confirm that she “wouldn’t say that.”
It stands in stark contrast to Conservative Health Secretary Sajid Javid, who very quickly confirmed that only women do indeed have a cervix when he blasted Starmer yesterday for his “total denial of scientific fact”.
