JEREMY Clarkson has provoked anger with his bigoted views on gender identity.
The former Top Gear loudmouth wrote that “men who wanted to be women” should be called “ladyboys”.
He also wrote that children with gender identity issues should not be indulged any more than people who thought they were Napoleon.
He wrote in the Sunday Times: “As far as I was concerned, men who want to be women were only really to be found on the internet or in the seedier bits of Bangkok. They were called ladyboys, and in my mind they were nothing more than the punchline in a stag night anecdote.”
Attitude mag contributor James Dawson, described as “role model for Stonewall” slammed the “dinosaur” on Twitter.
Clarkson, 55, gave the anecdote of a child, born a boy but had insisted from the age of three that she had a girl’s name and wore girls’ clothes and, later, that she went to a girls’ school.
“And her parents had simply indulged this whim.”
He said a doctor friend compared it to Napoleon complex saying: “I get lots of people in my surgery with a Napoleon complex. But I don’t buy them a pointy hat and a French army uniform.”
Clarkson said it was no different to children having dreams of being superheroes or spacemen.
He said: “When I was five I wanted to be Alan Whicker, but my parents didn’t buy me a blazer and send me to hospital to have my adenoids sewn up.”
One Twitter user slammed him as “the male Katie Hopkins.”
Referring to gender re-assignment in prisons like the Isle of Wight, he said: “They tell the screws they want to be women, they get a bit of make-up and some breasts to play with and they are then transferred to a women’s prison, where they can spend the rest of their lives being a lesbian.
