Nineties pop star Macy Gray has appeared on Piers Morgan Uncensored to make several incendiary anti-trans remarks, leaving JK Rowling delighted.
Oh dear. Immediately after LGBTQ+ Bette Midler fans were left conflicted by some seemingly anti-trans statements on Twitter, musician Macy Gray has gone quite a few steps further saying:
“I will say this and everyone’s gonna hate me but as a woman, just because you go change your [body] parts, doesn’t make you a woman, sorry.”
what is it about “womanhood” that TERFs like macy gray and bette midler are so desperate to cling to? trans women existing doesn’t make me any less of a woman, no matter how different our experiences may be. it’s just ridiculous at its core honestly.
Here we are again with the same argument going around in circles, with media outlets trying to drag everyone in for a quote that they can regurgitate in order to rile up their audience further with trans people once again being vilified as a result for simply trying to exist. SIGH.
‘I didn’t have Macy Gray being a terf on my bingo card f**king yikes??? Vis women are so embarrassing like why the f**k you even care. Am I only a woman because of my parts? That’s all we’re limited to?’ one person wrote.
“Less than a year ago, Macy Gray was talking about how much she loves her LGBT+ fans, and cashing cheques from Pride events,”, wrote another. “and now she’s jumped on the TERF grift bandwagon. A dead career can cause one hell of a 180, huh?”

Millennial trans women don’t need JK Rowling, Bette Midler & Macy Gray as childhood female heroes anyway…
Not when Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez, Whoopi Goldberg, Kylie Minogue, Oprah, Goldie Hawn, Jane Fonda, Angelina Jolie & more all said TRANS RIGHTS w their whole chests 🏳️⚧️
Listen. As a woman, as a mother, as a *human*, as someone about to piss off some people in my daughter’s community, the terms suck. I get it. I don’t want to be called menstruator, birthing body. But here’s the kicker. My trans daughter doesn’t want that for me, for us, either.
Macy Gray is my friend. I adore her, but I’m shocked she doesn’t understand what she’s talking about. If or when I see her again I’ll try to explain to her why she seems not to know about what being trans is. Ugh. Sad. So sad.
