Macy Gray trended on social media after appearing on Piers Morgan’s Uncensored on July 4. The singer was being criticized for saying having surgery “doesn’t make you a woman.”

Many felt the comment was transphobic. “What is it about “womanhood” that TERFs like Macy Gray and Bette Midler are so desperate to cling to? No matter how different our experiences may be, it doesn’t make me any less of a woman. It’s just ridiculous at its core honestly,” said a Twitter user.

Others found nothing wrong with what Gray said. “Im sorry but..what did Macy Gray say wrong…like that was all facts. It’s 2022 and y’all mad because she said trans-women won’t understand abortion?!?! A person without a uterus literally cannot conceive…but alright,” said a Twitter user.

Nonetheless, Gray came to Twitter to explain her stance even more tweeting, “There is no bigger admirer of LGBT community than your truly,” she explained. “It takes real balls to be honest about who you are.” Gray continued saying “woman” and “man” are titles you earn and said her comment was directed to “all women, not just transwomen.”

What do you think of Macy Gray’s comments? Was she wrong or just stating facts?
