Germaine Greer Defends Transgender Views, Triggers Another Controversy


Germaine Greer

Germaine Greer has apologised for her recent statements on transgender people, acknowledging that her views were “wrong” – before going on to spark another furore by re-stating those previous views.

The groundbreaking feminist thinker Greer, 77, was responding to a question-and-answer session on an ABC television panel show on Monday night (April 11th). A journalist named Steph D’Souza had introduced herself as a former fan and asked her: “Why do you believe there is such a thing as a real woman?”

“This is so difficult,” Greer began her answer, referring back to her comments in 2015 about transgender women ‘not being real women’ that had caused a petition by Cardiff University students to prevent her from speaking there.

Germaine Greer Accuses Caitlyn Jenner Of Stealing The Spotlight From The Female Kardashians


Caitlyn Jenner Germaine Greer

Germaine Greer has refused to back down from her controversial comments regarding transgender women, accusing Caitlyn Jenner of upstaging the female members of the Kardashian family.

Greer, the Australian-born feminist and campaigner, had been heavily criticised for an interview she had given on BBC2’s ‘Newsnight’ program on Friday (October 23rd) in which she claimed that Glamour magazine’s decision to award Jenner, who underwent a gender transition operation earlier in 2015, with their Woman of the Year award was largely motivated by “misogyny”.

She also repeated her position on transsexual women, who have begun life as men before undergoing surgery and hormone treatment, are “not women”, saying that they do not “look like, sound like or behave like women.”

Town Bloody Hall Review


Excellent
This isn't a horror film, as the title Town Bloody Hall (now reissued theatrically) might suggest. But you'll be kept on your mental toes while watching a man renowned for possible sexism be thrown into a discussion on feminism. It's a crowded room too, and anything can happen.

On April 30, 1971, a group of panelists came together for a discussion on the feminist movement, largely in response to an essay published by Norman Mailer entitled "The Prisoner of Sex." Mailer was at center stage, flanked by the following: Jaqueline Ceballos (the president of the National Organization for Women), author Germaine Greer (The Female Eunuch), Jill Johnston (a writer from the Village Voice ), and critic Diana Trilling.
