Hvordan forholde seg til transbevegelsen

Den engelske komikeren Graham Lineham har skrevet en meget god artikkel om strategier for å stå oppreist i kampen mot transaktivister. Den anbefales.

Don’t give in to the bullying trans activists

They’ll come for you at the slightest perceived transgression. But you’re not a bigot. Be calm. Stand firm.

It could be anything. A throwaway line in a press release, or a casting decision, or a packaging design that somehow made it through the focus groups. A charge of transphobia forms in an instant out of nothing, and then follows you around like a loyal, smelly dog.

But don’t panic! I am here to tell you that you can make it to the other side. It’s been a little over a year since I decided to enter into the heated debate around currently fashionable gender ideology and the same activists who smeared the former tennis player Martina Navratilova and the singer Marc Almond as transphobic have thrown everything they could at me too. And yet I have not changed my position one iota from what it was when I began.

I can summarise my position thus: women exist. They are not just an idea or a feeling. They have the right to assembly, the right to organise, the right to demand private and safe spaces free of men and the right to assert these rights without being tormented online by the first generations who didn’t go outside to play.
