Piers Morgan engaged in a debate with two nonbinary people on Good Morning Britain, at times appearing combative and defensive in asserting his ideas of gender.
Rather than focus on the reality of the couple’s gender, Morgan posed a series of slippery-slope hypotheticals to his guests, Fox and Owl. Morgan wondered whether, because Fox and Owl identify as nonbinary, he was then free to identify as a black woman or an elephant.
“You’ve got to respect what people want to be called,” Fox said to Morgan.
“Why do I have to?” Morgan responded, to which Owl reminded Morgan that it’s about respect.
