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

Hey! I'm a but late but I only just found this post. I'm sorry how the DA is treating you. I actually got a master's from there too several years ago, but being an introvert I wasn't very active outside my classes. So as an alumni I'll also send them an email. Your article is excellent though, it's worrying that the institutional capture has progressed that far in Austria too. Stay strong! I hope the friend that's going to visit you, will be able to cheer you up.

For you. It's funny how the DA stayed conservative, with old teaching staff and attention paid to decorum, while the societies turned so left.
