GB News presenter Nigel Farage hit out at Amazon after it was revealed the company were selling a t-shirt for £16.95 with the slogan "there are more than two genders..." despite adhering to "male" or "female" sizing.

The T-shirt which is being sold by Amazon, features the LGBT flag alongside the slogan "there are more than two genders".

Despite promoting gender non-conformity, the T-shirt promotes two sizes, "men" and "women".

Nigel commented on the move saying: "You really couldn't invent some of this stuff."

His comments follow the ongoing discussion about transgender rights in the UK, with recent reports confirming the NHS have dropped the word "women" from internet guidance on ovarian, womb and cervical cancers.

Transgender cyclist Emily Bridges has fuelled a recent debate around the inclusion of transgender athletes in elite sports.

Bridges felt comments made by Boris Johnson over whether they should race women were the catalyst for a wave of violent threats and the cyclist also revealed an ambition to compete at the Commonwealth Games this summer.

The 21-year-old Welsh athlete made headlines in March when attempting to race at the British National Omnium Championships in the women’s category were prohibited at the 11th hour by world governing body UCI.

It sparked a debate which spread further than just the sport, with the Prime Minister weighing in when he stated: “I don’t think biological males should be competing in female sporting events” at a time when Bridges was already receiving plenty of criticism on social media and from fellow competitors.

During an interview with ITV, Bridges said: “It’s really strange to see probably the most famous man in Britain talking about you and having an opinion on something that he doesn’t know anything about.

“The response after that was as expected, I had threats of physical violence made against me by complete strangers online. People are entitled to hold an opinion about it, but there’s a way to go about voicing that opinion – and threatening to kneecap me is not that way.

“I’m scared a lot of the time about being who I am in public. Is someone going to recognise me? They were real concerns and it was a real fear that I had after the comments were made, and it was scary. I was scared.”
