After India Willoughby, a biological man who claims to be a woman, asserted that his "body chemistry is more female than" that of former professional women's tennis player Martina Navratilova, the tennis icon fired back by noting that Willoughby is not female.
Navratilova had tweeted that "trans identifying males is not a transphobic buzz phrase ... but rather a biological fact. Also it makes it much easier to understand who is who and how they started. Where they end up can change, but biology doesn't change. Ever."
Willoughby asserted that "calling someone a 'trans identified male' rather than simply a woman is about as transphobic as it gets" and that an individual "who transitions is factually and legally a biological female."
"Biology absolutely changes. My body chemistry is more female than Martina's. My anatomy is female. The fact Martina and other bigots refuse to acknowledge me or any woman who happens to be trans is deeply offensive. If it sticks in her craw so much, she shouldn’t be commentating," Willoughby declared. "The NHS - actual doctors - recognise me. They're not confused. So why can't Martina Navratilova? It's bigotry and prejudice," Willoughby added.
Martina Navratilova responded by stating the simple truth that Willoughby "never was, and never will be, female."
But Willoughby openly claims that he is female.
"I don't ID as a woman/female. I am a woman/female," Willoughby has tweeted.
Willoughby has claimed to to be "more of a woman than JK Rowling will ever be," referring to the famous author of the "Harry Potter" series.
