Piers Morgan Goes on Transphobic Tirade Against Gender-Neutral Clothing Policies
Shit-stirrer Piers Morgan has opened his big mouth against all things gender-neutral or gender non-conforming.
Ever since Emma Watson received the first gender-neutral MTV Movie and TV Award earlier this month, Morgan has had an issue with gender non-conforming standards.
“I can’t think of a better recipient than Emma Watson either, a great flag-bearer to all things gender neutral,” Piers Morgan said.
He continued: “What’ll now happen is that women will probably win a lot less awards because they made them gender-neutral and there’s more male actors.”
“So actually by trying to get equality, you end up with more inequality. It’s a masterpiece really, of political correct…”
On today’s Good Morning Britain, Morgan reacted to news that a London high school will introduce a “gender-neutral” uniform policy.
“The London private school we mentioned yesterday also wants to allow the boys, if they want to, to wear skirts – to school. Which sounds like a great idea,” he said sarcastically.
“So let’s ask the police chief we’re talking to: will male policemen be wearing skirts on duty, because that’s all part of this gender-neutral move,” Morgan said.
His co-host Susanna Reid asks: “I don’t think even female police officers wear skirts on duty, do they? They wear trousers.”
“I think everyone should be able to wear a skirt,” Morgan continues.
And then spitefully, he adds, “I might wear a skirt to work tomorrow as part of my gender-neutral, non-binary identity.”
Reid responds: “If we all wear trousers, doesn’t that kill the issue off?”
Next, Piers Morgan resorts to having a tantrum on live TV, yelling, “Oh it’s all just nonsense! All of it!”
Later in the show, co-host Charlotte Hawkins challenges Morgan, asking: “If someone doesn’t feel comfortable dressing as a boy and they want to be able to wear a skirt, why shouldn’t they be able to?”
He responds to this idea, “I just think we should be allowed to have boys and girls shouldn’t we?”
Hawkins expanded on the concept, trying to educate Morgan about non-binary people. “What if someone doesn’t feel they fit into that bracket?” she asks. “Shouldn’t we make space for them?”
“What if your child came to you and they were going through a struggle in their life and they didn’t identify with that and they wanted to change – what would you say?”
Maybe Piers Morgan is being extra conservative and crazed because he started a social media campaign to become the next Prime Minister.
