“It’s over”: Supposed ‘LGBT Icon’ Kim Woodburn blasted for anti-trans comments

 

Professional cleaner and former Celebrity Big Brother contestant Kim Woodburn is facing calls for cancellation from many in the LGBTQ+ community, after comments made while during an appearance on right-wing news channel GB News.

 

Kim, a regular booking at Pride events across the U.K., and a celebrity once considered somewhat of a British LGBT+ icon, is facing backlash for a series of unapologetic, transphobic remarks she made while discussing unisex changing rooms.

 

Host Mark Dolan raised the issue after a group called the Women’s Rights Network launched a campaign entitled All I Want for Christmas, in which they ask high street stores to provide ‘female-only’ changing rooms.

 

‘I think, Kim, that you speak for the silent majority of women. However, do you worry that you might be labelled a transphobe or a bigot for having that view?,’ Dolan asked, already knowing the answer.

Kim replied defiantly: ‘Look, if I’m going to be labelled that, then get on with it. I give not a jot. If I don’t want to show a man, accidentally, my knockers, or my bottom half, dear, which could easily happen, then I’m being labelled? Because I don’t want to show my bare body to a strange man? What?’

Then saying: ‘Oh, my body’s gorgeous, dear, you’ve gotta say it yourself!’

‘Come on, don’t talk utter rubbish, my love,’ Kim added.

‘A man’s a man, a woman’s a woman. And women who say they don’t mind sharing a dressing room with a man, they must be sexually frustrated and need to see something naughty!

 

Kim then rolled her eyes and welcomed people who disagree with her perspective to label her a ‘transphobe’ or a ‘bigot’.
Which, dear reader, is exactly what they did.
