Piers Morgan has said that non-binary children are “a contagion,” “two or three” trans kids died from suicide last year, and that identifying as non-binary is “a massive new fad”.

In 2014, a study found that 48 percent of trans people under 26 in Britain had attempted suicide.

Yesterday, the Good Morning Britain host said he “might wear a skirt to work tomorrow as part of my gender-neutral, non-binary identity,” and asked if he could identify as black.

Piers Morgan calls non-binary children ‘a contagion’ as he attacks trans couple

This morning, Morgan was speaking to Fox Fisher and Owl, a trans non-binary couple who came on the show to explain their gender identities.

Instead, they ended up being forced to emotionally defend their personhood in the face of ridiculous hypotheticals, as Morgan asked if he could call himself a black woman or an elephant.

The host has been irrationally irate about gender-neutral issues ever since Emma Watson received the first gender-neutral MTV Movie and TV Award earlier this month.

This was a different tone though, as Morgan accosted two non-binary trans people with increasingly offensive statements.

He asked Fox and Owl, two non-binary trans activists: “If I turned round right now and said I am a black woman…I made a joke yesterday, but I’m being partly serious.

“If I decided to identify myself as a different skin colour, would you respect that?

They tried to deal with this false comparison, telling him that the questions was hypothetical, as Morgan does not actually identify as black or female.
