UK PM Rishi Sunak Sparks Outrage with Controversial ‘A Man Is A Man’ Remark

British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has sparked a heated debate on social media with his recent comments on transgender persons. During his closing speech at the 2023 Conservative Party conference in Manchester on 4 October, he expressed his views on the gender debate, saying, “A man is a man, and a woman is a woman.”

Addressing the conference, Sunak argued, “We should not fall into the belief that people can be any gender they want – they can’t be. A man is a man and a woman is a woman. It’s just common sense.” He further stressed transparency in education regarding relationships, and clarity in health care communication about gender.

Mixed reactions on social media

While some supported Sunak’s stance, many criticized him for his derogatory comments towards the transgender community. Social media users pointed to the complexity of biological sex and the differences between sex and gender.

The comments come after Health Secretary Steve Barclay proposed banning transgender women from women’s hospital wards and using gender-specific language in women’s health discussions. The proposal has been criticized by moderate Tory MPs, who fear it will target LGBTQ+ individuals.

Sunak’s previous comments in April, stating that “women don’t have penises,” and his response that the figure for women without penises is “100 percent” highlight his strong stance on transgender rights.
