Liberal candidate Katherine Deves has today broken her silence on trans issues, slamming assertions that her irrational fear of trans people is transphobic. Deves told Sky News that she is ‘not transphobic’, but instead that she is simply scared that trans people are boogeymen out to mutilate children.
“The problem is that I have been silenced by the media. For weeks they have not interviewed me simply because I refuse to be interviewed.” explained Deves. “Then they have even further silenced me by broadcasting my views across the country. It’s just not right. What is the world coming to when the media expect a political candidate to discuss their views ahead of an election?”
“All I’m saying is that I am happy to accept trans people as long as they don’t play sport, be under 18, be over 18, use a restroom without having surgery first, have gender realignment surgery, or be near anyone else,” explained Deves. “That’s all. Oh and also we should pretend in schools that they don’t exist. Other than that I’m fine with them.”
