Good Morning Britain co-host Piers Morgan wasted no time in tearing to shreds a claim that there are at least 100 genders for human beings, a position the BBC is teaching to young children in a series of educational videos.  Morgan went so far in mocking the 100-gender theory by proposing that he could identify as a "two-spirit, neutrois penguin," and no one could, under the new gender-identity rules, argue otherwise.

During the lengthy segment on Sept. 7, Piers Morgan argued that there are two genders, male and female, and that transgender people, for a variety of reasons, may identify as the gender opposite to their anatomy, either male or female.  Journalist Bejamin Butterworth, a gay man brought on to defend the the BBC films tried to argue that people may gender-identify in myriad ways.

Early on, Morgan asked Butterworth to describe his, Morgan's gender. Butterworth said he assumed Morgan was a "cis-man," which apparently means a biological male who identifies as a man.

“Listen, I’m not a cis-man, you keep calling me a cis-man, I’m a man," said Morgan. 

“Well that’s fine!" said Butterworth. "And that’s how you can identify."

“Stop calling me it!" replied Morgan.  "I feel insulted and offended that you keep calling me a cis-man when actually I’m a man. You see how this works? When you get into the offence business right, when you get into the offence business when everyone is offended by all these terminology, I’m offended by you calling me a cis-man."

A little later in the segment, Morgan said, “Can I identify as a a penguin at the Sealife Aquarium in London, that is currently being reared as gender neutral, apparently has gay parents.  Let me just say this, can I under this new world of self-identification, can I identify as a two-spirit, neutrois penguin?"

Butterworth replied, “Well, you’re not a penguin, use some common sense. That’s not a thing that happens."

Piers shot back, “How dare you tell me I can’t identify as that. How dare you offend me. Do you see how it works Benjamin?”

"The BBC told us this is an informed professional view from a qualified teacher who is a personal social health and economic educations specialist," said Reid. "Her opinion is based on her own extensive research and many conversations with young LGBTQ people. She is not saying these are medical definitions of gender but is talking about how people identify."

"Or, to put it another way, she is talking complete cobblers," said Piers Morgan.
