Hey! I’m going to be annoying and make another post about something I’ve noticed going down within our community!
Who else, as a result of being cancelled and classed with Nazis for pointing out the conflict between gender identity rights and sex-based rights- not to mention the extreme abuses of any woman mentioning this, both from rabid, violently threatening TRAs and also from (and more chillingly, IMO) governments and corporations- has begun to wonder whether any dearly-held notions about the Wrongthink of those with different political views is a result of indoctrination, and quite possibly totally incorrect?
Another way of putting this is: how many people (I’m assuming the majority of us are left-wing) feel more open-minded about conservative opinions, and is this a bad thing? How about other political views dismissed by the neoliberal leftists? (A completely different question). This includes everything from not considering liberals to actually be leftist (I concur with this view) to thinking libertarianism is the way (personally I think libertarian socialism is the way, or perhaps that there are different ways for different communities, but people tell me the former is an oxymoron and the latter is untrue, because the only right way is their way).
Just call me devil’s advocate! For reference, after an illuminating conversation with another woman I began to question whether being pro-life should automatically revoke a woman’s feminist credentials (and I say this as someone who has actually had an abortion).
If you disagree with me that we should consider the viewpoints of those other than leftists, or indeed on any other points, let me know in the comments please!
