UK prime minister says country shouldn’t ‘be bullied’ into believing there are more than 2 genders

United Kingdom Prime Minister Rishi Sunak went viral this week for a speech in which he said no one should be “bullied into believing that people can be any sex they want.”

Sunak, the first British Asian to hold the high office, said in his remarks at the Conservative Party conference on Wednesday that “a man is a man, and a woman is a woman,” which was met with loud applause by the party faithful.

“We are going to change this country, and that means life. Now, that shouldn’t be a controversial position,” Sunak said. “The vast majority of hard-working people agree with it. It also shouldn’t be controversial for parents to know what their children are being taught in school about relationships. Patients should know when hospitals are talking about men or women.”

“And we shouldn’t get bullied into believing that people can be any sex they want to be. They can’t. Man is a man, and a woman is a woman, that’s just common sense,” the U.K. leader said.

“We need a commonsense approach to sex and equality issues in the NHS. That is why I am announcing proposals for clearer rights for patients,” Barclay told The Telegraph.

“And I can confirm that sex-specific language has now been fully restored to online health advice pages about cervical and ovarian cancer and … menopause. It is vital that women’s voices are heard in the NHS and the privacy, dignity and safety of all patients are protected,” he said.
