‘A Man Is A Man And A Woman Is A Woman’: British Prime Minister Goes After Radical Gender Ideology

 British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak slammed radical gender ideology during a speech on Wednesday, saying that men cannot become women and women cannot become men.

Sunak, who has made similar statements on gender in the past, made the comments during a speech in front of the Conservative Party Conference annual meeting in Manchester, England.

“Patients should know when hospitals are talking about men or women,” Sunak, a member of the Conservative Party, said. “And we shouldn’t get bullied into believing that people can be any sex they want to be. They can’t. A man is a man and a woman is a woman — that’s just common sense.”

During the same speech, Sunak said that parents should know what their children are being taught in schools. 

“It shouldn’t be controversial for parents to know what their children are being taught in school about relationships,” he said, before going onto his comments about gender.

Some of Sunak’s fellow Conservative Party members have made moves to pushback on gender ideology in recent weeks, with Health Secretary Steve Barclay announcing that men who identified as women would not be allowed as patients in female only NHS wards.

Trans-identifying journalist India Willoughby claimed that Sunak was “putting people in danger and inciting threats to their lives,” due to his comments. 

“We now have a British government and a prime minister that has said that it doesn’t recognize trans people,” Willoughby said. “If you don’t acknowledge a group of people exist, then obviously that group of people don’t have rights.”

The prime minister has faced criticism from leftist activists in the past for similar comments on biology after he was asked about Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer’s comment that some women could have penises.


When asked in an interview if 100 percent of women do not have penises, Sunak responded, “Yes, of course.”

“We should always have compassion and understanding and tolerance for those who are thinking about changing their gender. Of course we should,” he said. “But when it comes to these issues of protecting women’s rights, women’s spaces, I think the issue of biological sex is fundamentally important when we think about those questions.”

“As a general operating principle for me, biological sex is vitally, fundamentally important in these questions,” he added. “We can’t forget that.”
