Javid accuses Starmer of denying ‘scientific fact’ in trans rights row
The Guardian says Labour and the Conservatives have clashed on the issue of trans rights, as Sir Keir Starmer said it was wrong to say “only women have a cervix” and the health secretary, Sajid Javid, said this was a “total denial of scientific fact”.
The Labour leader called for laws to go further to protect trans rights after he was asked about one of his MPs, Rosie Duffield, who said “only women have a cervix”.
She is not attending the party conference in Brighton after receiving threats and being called transphobic.
