" like housework, the task of social change falls disproportionately on women."

Good line.

"the challenge of making society more affirming of people who do not identify with their birth sex has not seen the corresponding rise in terms such as “people with penises”, “sperm producers” or “upstanding urinators” "

LOL. I'm definitely going to wait for the next opportunity I have to call a man an upstanding urinator.

What happened to the comments on this? I went directly to the paper where there appeared to be almost 200 comments, but when I clicked they all disappeared.

Good article anyway, and heartening to read this in the SMH of all places. Was worried that it was mostly the Murdoch press covering this subject.

All comments are there for me. Do you perhaps have a browser extension that is interfering?

Not sure if you saw, but the topic was front page of the SMH a few days ago: https://archive.md/bjI2n

Yeah I tried Chrome instead and was able to read them. Bit of a mixed bag but not too bad tbh.

Second GC friendly article from this paper in under a week! It's considered a center left paper and is generally well respected, so this is an important development. Here's hoping it signals an end to media silence in the region on this issue.

This was a good read. Too bad the American left has been taken over by the gender identity cult.

I wish more American "well respected" papers had the same level of courage.

I don't have much else to contribute other than I appreciated reading this editorial, so thank you for posting!

There's been a bit in WSJ, Abigail Shrier and [I forget his name rn, but that one journalist guy that tries to remain "neutral" but reveals everything honestly] articles at least

"Level of coverage" might be stretching things to breaking point. There's been a severe, and very confusing to me, silence on this issue in Australian media for a very long time, strange because Australian media is overwhelmingly dictated by conservative outlets and they were one of the early nations to pass self ID (by stealth) and change the legal definition of "sex" (in 2013).

There's been a lot more coverage in America (and I know there's been hardly any in America). I'm hoping this changes, because Australia is the gateway to the region and a huge political influence on New Zealand (where, strangely, there's been a lot more activity in GC activism despite NZ not having the conservative media concentration of Australia).

I think the Sydney Morning Herald would be a very powerful paper to have on side for the entire region, if this becomes a trend.

edit: d'oh, I misread "level of courage" as "level of coverage". Apologies!

Haha, it's all good. I still found your response very informative.

And, honestly, however the general media leans ideologically speaking, if they're starting to be critical of gender woo, I still consider it a win for women and children; they are the most affected by this movement.
