Morgan replied, “Right, do you feel that?”

Gray said, “I know that for a fact.”

Gray responded to Morgan after starting a conversation about “the issue of transgender sport,” while claiming he supports transgender rights, “but not when you have people who were born with obviously physically superior bodies, the women.” transform and beat up in sports”.

Gray also said she would use her/his pronouns for trans women if they wished, “but that doesn’t make you a woman.”

Broadcaster India Willoughby wrote: “Sad and distraught. Because of this, it is virtually impossible for trans people to work in British media. It’s easy to dehumanize a group when they’re not represented in the office.”
