Writer Germaine Greer has criticized Sir Elton John for naming his husband as the mother of his two sons on their birth certificates.
The outspoken Australian feminist, 81, criticized ‘all-male’ families and slammed the pop singer, 73, for listing David Furnish, 57, as the mother of Zachary, nine, and Elijah, seven.
Zachary was born on Christmas Day in 2010 and Elijah on January 11, 2013. They are both said to have been born of the same unnamed California-based surrogate mother.

Germaine Greer turned down pop singer Sir Elton John for naming his husband as the mother of his two sons on their birth certificate while speaking in The Oldie Magazine
In a conversation with The Oldie magazine, Miss Greer condemned the couple for having the surrogate mother “give up” her title as the mother of the young.
Their two sons were born to two women, but David Furnish is the ‘mother’ on their birth certificate, ‘she said.
How did we give up this title? Are we going to have a world where families can be fully male? ‘
Miss Greer, known for writing her 1970 novel The Female Eunach, has been dividing her time between England and Australia since the 1990s.

The 81-year-old criticized women for ‘destroying’ the political system, saying former Prime Minister Theresa May’s tenure was ‘a mess’ and calling it ‘miserable’.
She also claimed that women ‘destroyed’ our political system and labeled former Prime Minister Theresa May’s tenure as ‘miserable’.
Women looked like “temple donkeys” as they “clucked” while Mrs. May ran the land, Miss Greer explained.
She added: ‘Women have destroyed our political system, in my opinion – the mess of Theresa May’s miserable tenure: women hanging around and screaming, wearing earrings with huge chunks, looking like temple donkeys in Kerala, and poor old Theresa who tiptoes through that wheatfield. ‘
Earlier this year, it was revealed that Sir Elton’s ex-wife is suing him for £ 3 million amid allegations that he violated the terms of their divorce by revealing details about her in his memoir and hit movie.
Renate Blauel, 67, had been married to the star for four years from 1984.
The German recording engineer – who is notoriously private – is unhappy that details of their marriage were revealed in Rocketman’s biopic and autobiography, Me.
The revelations caused mental health problems, her claim said.
However, in court papers seen by The Sun this week, the couple has agreed to try to settle the matter privately.
The newspaper reported that their lawyers have until 4 p.m. Oct. 13 to reach an agreement and avoid a meeting in open court.
