Bethenny Frankel Responds to Page Six's Article Calling Her Comments Transphobic

Bethenny Frankel is responding to the Page Six article published that calls out remarks she made as transphobic.

It all started when Bethenny was speaking about her daughter’s first days of school.

“We have to go into the fact that I did a Zoom for my daughter’s school and [had] the pronouns conversation with each teacher, each parent, each child,” she said on her podcast. “And my daughter says in school, too, that everybody has to say their pronouns. And my daughter didn’t even know what hers were … [She said], ‘I know what I am or what I think I am, but I have never said it out loud. It hasn’t come up for me.’ So she said she didn’t know.”

She added about her daughter’s summer camp, “It’s an all-girls camp and a person with a penis, who identifies as being a girl, went to the camp and was in the bunk with the girls. And the girls saw her — because it’s her, because it’s a male anatomy but identifying as a woman — so the other girls saw a penis. They’re 9, 10 years old, so the parents obviously weren’t that happy.”

“But she also hasn’t seen a penis. So, in a camp, she’d see girl parts so I think these conversations are also fluid,” she said. “It’s an interesting conversation about a girl, female anatomy being in a male anatomy bunk or vice versa. OK?”

An article was then published that read, “Bethenny Frankel slammed for ‘transphobic’ podcast comments about pronouns.”
