The article presents arguments for gender neutral language as a threat to women's political organisation and free speech.

The message I got today, after having spent hours working on the final draft, reads as follow:

"Thank you for submitting the final draft of your article. We acknowledge and appreciate the effort you invested in writing this article, however, we have decided not to publish it.

We recognize that everyone is entitled to their opinions. Still, we believe that your article lacks empathy for the LGBTQ+ community. While we encourage strong opinions, we do not condone the dismissal of other people’s identities and struggles to exercise their civil liberties.

We hope for your understanding. Thank you for your time and your work."

I wrote about censored cancelled women and I got exactly the same treatment. Please support me by sending a short email to <polemics@da-vienna.at>, letting them know gender critical women deserve to be heard. I have to say here that my editor at this magazine stood up for me and against the censorship. The Board didn't care.

Here is the article, which was to be subject to final editing. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1HBe5eF_xqIx06h2eOyjTt3Syr5lNICxfTzfBCv4uWJw/edit?usp=sharing

we believe that your article lacks empathy for the LGBTQ+ community.

Where's the empathy for you? Where's the empathy for women?

How does their conscience allow them to make LGB movement the enemy of women. So much for allies, when push comes to shove we know how that works out. I fear there will be unhappy consequences for L&G movement and acceptance, the gay people outside the establishment are being abused by this ideology that has captured its former organizations. G&L youth are suffering immensely from this disastrous ideology, history will look back at this time as the lobotomies/conversion therapy/mental institutionalization and aids virus all wrapped in one.

A lost generation of G&L adults who are infertile/disfigured/mentally scarred. Lesbian women in early adulthood who talked themselves into sex and partnering with men for years they can not get back. The innocent boys who should have been allowed to grow up as healthy intelligent and creative feminine gay men and who are often disparaged even among their own community, were instead abused and transitioned by their homophobic parents in the suburbs before they ever got a chance to experience romantic or sexual attraction. I think unfortunately that may be where the wave of suicides comes from, only the victims have grown up and will not allow this to be reframed as transphobia.

I am angry at how this effects and hurts women and I am heartbroken at the generation thats been stolen.
