I Perth i Australia fikk byens ordfører huset vandalisert av LHBTIQ-aktivister etter at han sa at kroppens anatomi avgjør den enkeltes kjønn. Det er Lifesitenews som skriver:
Basil Zempilas, the city’s recently inaugurated mayor, angered listeners of his radio show last Wednesday, when he bluntly declared, “If you’ve got a penis, mate, you’re a bloke. If you’ve got a vagina, you’re a woman. Game over.”
The comment was made in response to a story of a woman who refused to view her child as either male or female until he reached age 18.
Zempilas’s co-host countered by saying, “If I subscribe to being a girl, I’m a girl,” to which Zempilas responded, “No, no, wrong.”
A petition demanding his resignation had accumulated more than 10,000 signatures when it was presented to him on Sunday. The mayor also faced a large amount of online backlash, with his social media reportedly being inundated with angry messages. A march was organized this past Saturday, calling for his resignation and urging people to “Stand up to Transphobia.”
