Australian academic Germaine Greer has defended her earlier comments on transgender women, saying that “it doesn’t make them (transgender women) a woman”.
“I think people should be allowed to have the male to female procedure… all I’m saying is that it doesn’t make them a woman,” she said in an interview with BBC Newsnight.
She also claims that “a great many women” who are not transgender think transgender women – who she refers to as “male to female transgender people” – do not “look like, sound like or behave like women”.
