The quote that really caught my attention In a time of escalating and cynical right-wing attacks on so-called wokeness, some practitioners I spoke to called for their movements to do better at making space for the still waking. They want a movement that, on the one hand, is clear that things like respecting pronouns and fighting racism and misogyny and xenophobia are nonnegotiable and that, on the other hand, shows a self-interested gentleness toward people who haven’t got it all figured out, who are confused or even unsettled by the onrushing future.
Oh yes, the US so "enlightened left" will treat pronoun offenders gently unlike "the enlightened" Germans and Brits who call the police. But wait, how many people in the US or Canada have been fired? https://www.nytimes.com/2022/10/17/opinion/midterm-democracy-crisis.html
