Endometriosis South Coast (ESC), a charity supporting those with endometriosis or adenomyosis, appointed a transgender woman, Steph Richards, as CEO. Richards aims to raise awareness, advocating for health hubs and reducing wait times for afflicted women.
However, her appointment has sparked outrage from women’s groups, who feel it ignores women’s suffering and is insulting.
The move has been called an “absolute disaster” and an “insulting appointment” by critics. (Trending: Photos Released Of Cocaine Found In White House)
Richards took to social media after and wrote, “My mission will be to oversee the charity’s everyday running, raise awareness of #endometriosis and #adenoyosis and raise the profile of ESC.”
Adding, “Feminism has many causes, far too many to put in one tweet – but for me, inequality in healthcare is a priority and I will do my best to help overcome this injustice.”
Richards has faced transphobia online and defended her position, but the decision has caused significant controversy.
Kellie-Jay Keen, the founder of Let Women Speak spoke out against the “absolute disaster” of a appointment.
“Everyone has lost their collective minds,” Keen reportedly told The Daily Mail.
“The losers are women who suffered from endometriosis who have to rely on a charity that won’t call them ‘women’ but ‘people’ but who will call a man a woman,” continued Keen.
Concluding, “I think it’s doubly insulting they will use female language for him but not for a suffer the condition.”
Caroline Ffiske, who is the Director of Conservatives for Women, knocked the moves as an “insulting appointment” on social media.
“It’s an absolutely shocking appointment. There’s just disbelief and despair among the entire community,” she added.
Richards did engage with some of the criticism but adressed all of the criticism with a general dismissive post to X.
“Calmly working today while under a barrage of online #transphobia,” wrote Richards.
“I genuinely appreciate your support, especially the dozens of DMs from those who have GC views. Thank you and enjoy @Conservatives falling apart,” taunted the charity CEO.
