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.
