25 million twitter followers, holy crap. can't explain how relieving it feels to see big institutions/corporations supporting those who speak out against the gender craze.

Just go to show that those TRA are just a tiny vocal minority. I hope people stops paying attention and caving to their demands soon

exactly this - many people can't speak out for fear of cancellation, but what they can do and are doing is to put their money where their values are. we've seen it with how JKR's sales skyrocketed even as her name was being slandered, and we're seeing it again now.

I don't think they are a tiny vocal minority. They have captured academia (well, that's where it started I guess) and some governments. And there is clearly some big bucks behind it. Big pharma and rich TiMs sponsoring groups to erase women.

One of the WoLF surveys said between 75-80% of people surveyed did not want transidentified men participating in women's sports. So, TRAs are a minority, but perhaps not tiny. Let me know if you need me to find the source, although you might be able to find it on your own.

I think assuming 20-25% of the population is nuts is to be expected, frankly. In the US that's the amount of people who still think interracial marriage should be illegal.

I bet Chase Strangio at the ACLU is fuming right about now.

“The book the ACLU tried to ban” has got quite a ring to it. Shrier’s publisher should send Chase flowers.

[–] RawSienna 37 points (+37|-0)

Strangio should not at the ACLU any more than a pedo should work at a daycare. In both cases, they are there to do vile harm.

It's really disappointing that the ACLU didn't fire her sorry ass after she solicited gender non-conforming kids to DM her on Twitter behind their parents' backs for trans guidance and validation during the pandemic. That's 100% predator behavior.

Wait, are we allowed to send men flowers? ;)

Spray them down with Alex Body Spray first. That way Chase will know they're MANLY FLOWERS!!!!!

Long ago I was in the airport after having my heart broken by a guy. I wanted something to read and was in WH Smith’s looking at all the magazines. Of course it was gendered. Tons of boobs magazines (I mean really, can’t we have a plane ride without a guy getting off?) or car or sports magazines (with boobs).

The women’s section had all sorts of delights that showed me what to buy and how to;

Tell if he loves you! Make him go wild in bed! “A” for Adventure!!!

And other instructions on how to blow men. After my experience I already knew I could drive a man wild in bed but a job well done was not its own reward.

I was getting more ticked off by the second.

Then a beacon of light, like seeing a giant emerald amongst rubble; there it was... The Economist

I snatched it from the shelf. I paid the exorbitantly high price. I felt smug I got the last copy. I stocked up on Milky Bars and Kit Kat’s. I made my way to the gate and was told due to overbooking in coach I had been randomly upgraded to business class. I stood there in amazement and looked down at my shopping bag.

Just like the knight who guarded the Holy Grail in Indiana Jones’s Last Crusaders, I could hear it say to me “You have chosen wisely”.

For I had looked past the shiny wastes of time and seen the true treasure. I had been blessed.

Sadly, I later strayed from that most wise path and am now learning where I went wrong. I am going to shell out for the subscription.

lolol – thank you so much for this, I have been having one of the most miserable days, and this is not just funny but instructive post did me the world of good. I now know that both chocolate and The Economist are not only excellent fortification for flights, but also for clearing the brain of those dreadful boob magazines. :)

2020 has been a strange year, and gender critical feminism slowly gaining mainstream credibility definitely qualifies as yet another thing I didn’t expect.

[–] BlackCirce 18 points (+18|-0)

It’s great to see a woman succeed writing about women’s issues. It’s been a long time coming.

Yay, that's awesome. Also just glad to see so many people still reading books, lol

[–] au_dela 15 points (+15|-0)

Can someone copy and paste the section that discusses the book?

[–] [Deleted] 32 points (+32|-0)

I made an account, here ya go:

Irreversible Damage. By Abigail Shrier. Regnery Publishing; 276 pages; $28.99 and £22

A critical look at the enormous rise in recent years in people identifying as trans, especially among girls. It covers a brewing scandal over the provision of irreversible treatments, whether surgical or pharmaceutical, to teenagers. Predictably controversial—yet there is not a drop of animosity in the book.

[–] Alexiares 19 points (+20|-1)

I found myself asking, why would there be any expectation that there would be "a drop of animosity in the book"? Then I remembered that for some reason when the TRAs act vilely somehow most people assume that is actually people who are "transphobic."

Wait, I think something just jumped out at me there...
