BBC defends playing song that tells listeners to ‘kick terfs’

The BBC has defended airing a song that encourages listeners to “kick” gender critical people, despite complaints.

BBC Radio 6 Music played the track called They/Them by the band Dream Nails, which features the lyrics “kick terfs all day, don’t break a sweat”.

Terf is an abbreviation for trans-exclusionary radical feminist, a term used to describe people who believe trans women’s gender identity is illegitimate.

It comes after the station was accused of refusing to play songs by the Irish singer Roisin Murphy following her criticism of puberty blockers.

Ms Murphy, 50, posted on Facebook: “Puberty blockers are f——, absolutely desolate, big pharma laughing all the way to the bank. Little mixed-up kids are vulnerable and need to be protected, that’s just true.
