Australian Senator Declares He Is a Woman So He Can Talk About Abortion

2018-11-16 08:05
An Australian senator publicly declared himself a woman on November 14 while “defending” himself against attacks from left-wing politicians regarding abortion. Queensland politician Barry O’Sullivan made the declaration in response to an argument he had had earlier in the week regarding late-term abortion, in which he was told by Greens senator Larissa Waters to keep his “rosaries off [her] ovaries”. “I am going to declare my gender today, as I can, to be a woman and then you’ll no longer be able to attack me,” O’Sullivan told the chamber, on November 14. O’Sullivan’s Wikipedia page was soon edited to change “he/him” pronouns to “she/her” pronouns. Credit: ParlView via Storyful
