BBC TV Presenter Told It’s ‘Easier’ To Accept Being Infertile Because You’re Gay

Earlier this month Great British Bake Off host Sue Perkins revealed she has been living with a brain tumour for eight years, which has stopped her from having children.

In an extract from her memoir ‘Spectacles’, published in the Sunday Times, Perkins said it “felt like a bereavement” when she found out.

She revealed that her brain tumour consultant asked her whether she had a boyfriend or husband, but she told him she is a lesbian.

He replied:

Oh, OK. Well, that makes it easier. You’re infertile. You can’t have kids.”

Perkins wrote:

Does not a lesbian have a fallopian tube? Am I not human, and [am] I not somebody who could be a lovely, wonderful mother?”

She also said she made a complaint about the doctor in question.

Perkins and fellow presenter Anna Richardson earlier this year revealed that they are in a relationship together.
