this gets to the heart of what’s going on:

“ The pressure to erase words like “women” from American culture is supported by a lot of money, ostensibly to ensure that non-binary people feel included, but the truth is much simpler. Monied interests want to erase the word “women” to inhibit their political power as a class of people. If the goal were truly to help non-binary people, we could just ADD words like “non-binary” to make sure nobody feels excluded.”

Pleasantly surprised to find this article in the Boston Herald which is one of the two widely circulated newspapers in Boston and also throughout New England.

i have said this before on here; but I am so glad that more and more women are refusing to put up with this shit. How dare the ACLU rewrite what RBG wrote, they had zero right doing that and they need to stop pretending that they are pro freedom of speech.

I'm really glad that this has seemed to peak a lot of people.

I missed this when you posted it, but this is great. This is the kind of plain-English, no-spin writing we need.
