Boris Johnson: Only a man is born with a penis | News | The Times

A woman cannot be born with a penis, Boris Johnson said last night, adding that there were “particular problems” around “issues of gender”, but he said it was important to be “as understanding of everybody else as possible”.

Asked whether a woman could be born with a penis, Johnson replied: “Not without being a man”.

“I think I’ve spoken of three concerns I’ve had in the past. They are to do with the age at which you can deem it competent to transition, the question of safe spaces for women and the difficulties you have with sporting competitions.

“These are all very difficult problems and you have to be very sensitive. But these are the areas.”

Johnson’s answers went further than his statement to the Commons in March that “when it comes to distinguishing between a man and a woman, the basic facts of biology remain overwhelmingly important”.

There is an increasingly apparent divide between the Conservatives and Labour on the issue.

In March Sir Keir Starmer said that “trans women are women as a matter of law”. Asked on LBC in March whether a woman can or cannot have a penis, Starmer said: “I don’t think that discussing this issue in this way helps anyone in the long run.”

  1. What would Boris say if faced with a child with BOTH genitalia? He is a fool! BUT how does a fool of such proportions become PM of a country like Great Britain?
