Phillip Schofield has been left outraged on This Morning on Monday morning after a christian woman was on the show who branded Transgender people a ‘fad’ and ‘abhorrent!’
Andrea Williams of the Christian Legal Centre was appearing on the ITV show alongside a teacher who is at risk of losing his job after being accused of misgendering a student following a complaint from the child’s mother.
The teacher from Oxford called a pupil as “her” on the show causing Phillip to interrupt and said “Him…”.
Joshua then replied:
“Well, we don’t know do we,”
Leaving Phillip and his co-presenter Holly Willoughby stunned.
Phillip was getting more and more frustrated during the interview after they talked about how you should refer to a transgender person.
Phillip then said to Andrea:
“The suicidality rate of children who go through some kind of transition process is just as high as if they don’t, (sic)”
“You’re a Christian, you’re both Christians.
“It doesn’t seem very Christian to me for you to be so intransigent,”
Andrea replied back:
“The kindest thing that you can do for a gender confused child is to help them live in the body they are [in],”
Willoughby then piped up and said:
“The role of a teacher isn’t just the subject you’re teaching, it’s their wellbeing,”
To what Andrea replied:
“Yeah, but it’s not a reality.”
Causing Phillip to say:
“Are you saying that transgender isn’t a reality,” Phillip asked in obvious disbelief. “In your eyes it’s not possible to be born in the wrong body?”
“No, we are born male and female,””We can’t change that. Surgery can’t change that.”
Schofield then ended the interview by saying:
“I am finding this utterly abhorrent.”
“We’ll get back to the show and back to 2017 and not medieval Britain in just a moment.”
We have to say we agree with Phillip on this one.
