Tracey Ullman rips apart Germaine Greer’s transphobic rants in brilliant sketch (WATCH)
Impersonator Tracey Ullman has turned her attention to Germaine Greer in a hilarious sketch.
Ms Greer, a noted feminist author, has long been outspoken about her beliefs on transgender people, who she claims are de-constructing the meaning of womanhood.
Now legendary comic Tracey Ullman has parodied Greer in a sketch for her recent BBC comedy series.
Greer can be seen lecturing a woman and child at a bus stop, complaining that the bus driver is transgender.
She then complains about people calling her transphobic, saying she’s “called a RTOWWAM”.
She then explains that’s a “racist transphobic old woman with a minge”, at which point the woman vacates the bus stop to escape the ranting Greer.

The real-life Greer’s comments are more shocking than her on-screen parody’s, however.
Speaking to the Victoria Derbyshire Show, she previously said: “Just because you lop off your d**k and then wear a dress doesn’t make you a f***ing woman.
“I’ve asked my doctor to give me long ears and liver spots and I’m going to wear a brown coat but that doesn’t turn me into a f***ing cocker spaniel.
“A man who gets his d**k chopped off is actually inflicting an extraordinary act of violence on himself.”
Despite outrage at the comments, the 78-year-old picked up the ‘Iconoclast’ prize at the 2016 Oldie of the Year awards.
According to the Independent, she said at the ceremony: “I feel I have nicked this award.

“I don’t want to be recognised for being a reactionary. I’m not.
“I don’t want to recognise polarised gender. We are none of us masculine enough, none of us feminine enough. It’s a losing battle.
“The most fuss and bother wasn’t for anything I said and did recently, rather it’s to do with what I wrote years ago.
“It was important to me that women understood femininity as a pose, a posture, a cultural artefact.
“I was talking about this fraud of femininity that women are persuaded to accept. I never actually bought into the fight. I was co-opted into the fight.”
Despite claiming she wasn’t trying to “polarise” views, Greer has spoken out about the issue no fewer than six times.
