LABOUR MPs are at war again — over whether a woman can be born with a penis.
After prominent backbencher Stella Creasy declared they could, a party boss stepped in to slap her down.
Ms Creasy told the Telegraph: “Do I think some women were born with penises? Yes. But they are now women and I respect that.”
And she added: “Of course biological sex is real. It’s just not the end of the conversation.”
But Labour chairperson Anneliese Dodds hit back, telling Sky News: “There are trans women who have made a transition in their gender. But sex is not the same as gender.”
The row comes after Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer famously dodged the question, refusing to say if he believed a woman could have a penis.

Separately, a new report from the Policy Exchange think tank slams the criminal justice system for putting transgender rights ahead of women’s rights.
It highlights how police, prisons and courts have allowed the self-declaration of “gender identity” rather than biological sex to put women at risk from male sex offenders who define themselves as women.
It also criticises the National Police Chiefs Council’s policy that would allow female detainees to be searched by male cops — on the basis of the officers’ “lived gender identity”.
In the report, SNP MP Joanna Cherry QC slams politicians for a “shocking abdication of their responsibility as law makers”, as they are too afraid to speak up for women over the trans lobby.
