Feminist commentator Germaine Greer has criticised Elton John for calling his partner David Furnish "mother" of their two sons.
Speaking at the Hay Literary Festival, Greer accused the men of "deconstructing motherhood," criticising them for the fact that Furnish was listed as mother on their children’s birth certificates.
"Sir Elton John and his 'wife' David Furnish have entered on the birth certificate of their two sons that David Furnish is the mother. I’m sorry," Greer is quoted as saying. "That will give you an idea of how the concept of motherhood has emptied out. It’s gone, it’s been deconstructed."
