Dublin, Ireland — Irish music artist Sinead O’Connor, known for her hit 1990 arrangement of the Prince song “Nothing Compares 2 U,” has come out against transgender people. This comes as quite a shock to the LGBT community as O’Conner is an admitted lesbian and feminist.

Sinead made some shocking admissions

“I feel that transgender is an illness, much like a virus, once you have it, you always have it,” said Ms. O’Connor in a Gish Gallop Skype interview. “There is no cure; they just mutilate themselves to their diseased mind; it’s quite frightening.”

The views expressed by Sinead were shocking and a turn from her past vocal support of the LGBT community. There is expected to be a lot of backlash after her comments.
