I'm left-leaning as well and can't stand when anything gender critical is labeled as right wing rhetoric. It's completely misleading. Critics of GC just want to be able to wrap their opponents up in a nice little box that they can deem as hateful and quickly dismiss. They don't want to accept that people on all parts of the political spectrum feel this way.

it makes sense if you acknowledge that "right wing" is rhetorically equivalent to "TERF"
