“When I say "women", I don't much care if you were born or became one. I am with RuPaul: "Honey, we are born naked, the rest is drag." What I do care about is something that is deeply old-fashioned: solidarity. I may not be your colour or your culture, or share your sexual preferences, but open your eyes to what we need to do. This is not some glitch in the uber-sexual matrix; this government makes Thatcher look like Shirley Williams. The boot is in your face if you are not one of them,” Suzanne Moore wrote in her article that created enough steam to get her cornered and eventually off from Twiter!
She left Twitter after heavy criticism for her controversial remarks about the trans community.
In the article titled, Seeing Red: The Power of Female Anger, she also wrote, “[Women] are angry with ourselves for not being happier, not being loved properly and not having the ideal body shape – that of a Brazilian transsexual.”
She then defended her use of the phrase “Brazilian transsexual” – which many considered to be offensive – not least because Brazil has an appalling record on transphobic hate crime.
Responding to the row Guardian columnist Julie Bindel tweeted@PinkNews: “Can those of us who hate bullying PLEASE do something about the trans cabal running a witch hunt everytime they get offended?
Later in the afternoon, it became apparent that Suzanne Moore’s Twitter account had been deactivated.
Julie Burchill also supporting Suzzane wrote in the Observer but she didn’t just supported her, she bulldozed andtore in to the entire transsexual community. In her words, “To have your cock cut off and then plead special privileges as women – above natural-born women, who don't know the meaning of suffering, apparently – is a bit like the old definition of chutzpah: the boy who killed his parents and then asked the jury for clemency on the grounds he was an orphan.”
In her opinion, Burchill seems to think that transsexuals are engaged in a global conspiracy against “the minority of women of working-class origin to make it in what used to be called Fleet Street.”
The piece also said, “Shims, shemales, whatever you’re calling yourselves these days – don’t threaten or bully us lowly natural-born women, I warn you. We may not have as many lovely big swinging Phds as you, but we’ve experienced a lifetime of PMT and sexual harassment and many of us are now staring HRT and the menopause straight in the face – and still not flinching. Trust me, you ain’t seen nothing yet. You really won’t like us when we’re angry.”

I detest Suzanne Moore and Julie Burchill. The former has insulted me many times, sent me weird drunken messages in the middle of the night.— Guido Fawkes (@GuidoFawkes) January 13, 2013
If anything, the emotional, irrational reaction of transsexuals to Suzanne Moore's article shows once and for all that they are real women.— Frankie Boyle (@frankieboyle) January 13, 2013
