There’s at least one topic Hillary and Chelsea Clinton don’t see eye to eye on — transgender identity.

In an interview with the the Sunday Times of London, the mother-daughter duo were asked if someone with a beard and penis can ever be a woman.

“Ye-esss. Yes,” Chelsea replied.

Her mom, meanwhile, looked “uneasy,” journalist Decca Aitkenhead wrote.

“Errr. I’m just learning about this,” she said. “It’s a very big generational discussion, because this is not something I grew up with or ever saw. It’s going to take a lot more time and effort to understand what it means to be defining yourself differently.”

“I think you’ve got to be sensitive to how difficult this is,” Hillary said. “There are women who’d say [to a trans woman], ‘You know what, you’ve never had the kind of life experiences that I’ve had. So I respect who you are, but don’t tell me you’re the same as me.’ I hear that conversation all the time.”
