A brief note about Róisín Murphy Róisín Murphy shares statement after transphobic Facebook comment: ‘I will now bow out of this conversation’ (2023, August 29)

The singer-songwriter has been in hot water after a Facebook post where she spouted transphobic talking points surfaced.

‘Please don’t call me a TERF [trans-exclusionary radical feminist], please don’t keep using that word against women. I beg you! But puberty blockers are f—ed, absolutely desolate, big pharma laughing all the way to the bank,’ Murphy commented on someone else’s post. ‘Little mixed-up kids are vulnerable and need to be protected, that’s just true.’

Although she wrote with conviction in that comment, her claims are verifiably false. The medical journal Pediatrics found suicidal ideation decreases with access to puberty blockers during adolescence and the Journal of the American Medical Association found ‘60% lower odds of depression’ and ‘73% lower odds of suicidality’ in adolescents who were taking puberty blockers.

German DJ and producer Boris Dlugosch remixed Moloko’s “Sing It Back” and took it to #4 on the UK Singles Chart. As a thank you, Moloko co-produced “Never Enough” and featured Murphy on vocals. It was another hit and charted at #16 in the UK. Fiercely melodic, it’s clear that the song was written to chart in a way that is unlike most of Murphy’s and Moloko’s work. The piano-house remix by Chocolate Puma adds even more momentum to the song and it quickly became a club classic. Twelve years later, the Chocolate Puma remix’s legacy was recognized with a re-release and 2013 update.
