The singer clarified that she backs transgender rights — but drew the line at athletic competitions.
“If you want me to call you a ‘her,’ I will,” she said. “Because that’s what you want but that doesn’t make you a woman just because I call you a ‘her’ and just because you got a surgery.”
“I don’t think you should be called transphobic just because you don’t agree…,” she said. “There is a lot of judgement and throwing stones at people for just saying what it is. Do you know what I mean?”
Being female, Gray said, required more than medical procedures.
“A woman goes through a completely unique experience and surgery and finding oneself doesn’t change that,” she said. “Being a little girl is a whole epic book, you know? You can’t have that just because you want to be a woman.”
It’s really sad how the truth has become the enemy these days. Bette Milder and Macy Gray didn’t say anything wrong and they are not transphobic for saying what they said.— Dessa_B (@_MischievousB) July 5, 2022
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.— Arielle (she/her) (@mrstschinkel) July 5, 2022

LMAO Between Macy Gray being transphobic, Erykah Badu blaming CHILDREN for their teachers assaulting them, Jill Scott being a Cosby supporter, and India Arie supporting Joe Rogan, my neo soul Spotify playlist will be muted eventually https://t.co/nFkE5tOg3E— Gabrielle Perry, MPH (@GeauxGabrielle) July 5, 2022

Macy Gray better not apologize either— Santana (@SantanaHendrix_) July 5, 2022
Terfs who are currently falling over themselves to worship Bette Midler and Macy Gray for their ignorant comments are currently doing the Right’s bidding. All marginalized groups are under attack by the right wing and you decide to blame trans ppl? Foh!— Kyle (@DreamcastGay) July 5, 2022
