Exeter University economics lecturer is branded transphobic by LGBT and feminist students after tweeting ‘only females menstruate’ in response to user who claimed otherwise
A university economics lecturer has been accused of transphobia by feminist and LGBT students over a tweet in which she said ‘only female people menstruate’.
Furious undergraduates at the University of Exeter condemned Dr Eva Poen accusing her of ‘openly singling out trans people’ in the posts.
The row erupted when Dr Poen responded to a tweet by Twitter user which read: ‘Not everyone who menstruates is female. Not everyone who is female menstruates. Let’s shift our language.’
The lecturer, who strongly denies accusations of transphobia, wrote back: ‘Only female people menstruate. Only female people go through menopause.’
In another criticised tweet, in response to the insurance company Aviva promoting LGBT+ inclusion in sports, Dr Poen wrote: ‘Let’s keep female sports for FEMALE PEOPLE.
‘Stay in your lane, Aviva. We don’t tell you how to do insurance; it would be great if you could stop telling women to give up their hard earned place in society. Women’s sport is not yours to give away.’
The university’s LGBTQ+ society condemned the comments.
