UK: Council Removes “Transphobic” Flags Because They Displayed the Dictionary Definition of the Word ‘Woman’
A council in the UK removed two “transphobic” flags because they displayed the dictionary definition of the word ‘woman’.
The flags, which were flown outside Bootle & Southport town halls, were meant to celebrate International Women’s Day.
They featured the words “woman” and the dictionary definition that a ‘woman’ is an “adult human female.”
However, after a Twitter user called Adrian Harrop complained that the flags were a “transphobic dog whistle,” the offending items were removed.
