But Kerri-Anne was clearly fired up, leading co-host Sarah Harris to interject at one point, 'Tell us what you really think.'
Apparently furious about the trans issue, Kerri-Anne raged on: ‘These kids out there who are gender confused, and there’s a percentage of people out there gender confused, they will put up this Commission and we, like Tasmania, will have a child and it won’t be male or female, it will be gender-free.’
Tasmanian-style reforms, including not adding gender on some birth certificates, are not a part of Shorten’s platform, but KAK continued to let fly.

‘If your child is confused, the rights of your child will go to them, you will have no rights as a parent. That child will go, “I want to be either a boy or girl, please give me whatever I need” and you as a parent will have no choice.’
The star’s rant has been met with a wave of condemnation on social media, with one poster writing, ‘Just in case it flies under the radar I'd like to point that Kerri-Anne Kennerley's disgust about 'gender confused' children [sic] is extremely misinformed and transphobic.’
Another wrote: ‘What a year for Kerri-Anne Kennerley… she’s gone full Boomer and is just hating every who is different to her in general (and reporting her incorrect opinions as fact).’
A third demanded an on-air apology, describing the star as ‘transphobic, small minded and incredibly irrelevant.’
Kerri-Anne has yet to respond to the backlash.
