UK Council Removes “Transphobic” Flags Because They Displayed Dictionary Definition Of The Word “Woman”

A council in the UK removed two “transphobic” flags because they displayed the dictionary definition of the word ‘woman’.

The flags, which were flown outside Bootle & Southport town halls, were meant to celebrate International Women’s Day.

They featured the words “woman” and the dictionary definition that a ‘woman’ is an “adult human female.”

However, after a Twitter user called Adrian Harrop complained that the flags were a “transphobic dog whistle,” the offending items were removed.

“We have been made aware of a potential issue regarding the messaging on a flag flown at Bootle & Southport town halls and have taken them down,” tweeted Sefton Council.

“We have a proud history of supporting LGBTQ+ rights across the borough,we continue to support all members of our communities,” the council added.
