A much tougher line

This very young MP is a piece of work.

That might sound reasonable if you didn’t know what zealots like this novice mean by “transphobia.” She doesn’t mean cruelty or persecution of trans people, she doesn’t mean inciting hatred of trans people (although she probably thinks she does), she means not agreeing that men are women if they say they are, and arguing that men cannot become women just by saying so (or any other way).

In other words she’s calling an entirely ordinary and obvious truth claim “phobic.” If we can’t tell ordinary obvious truths what can we tell? Nothing but lies?

But what about women? What about women who face higher violence rates, homelessness, rape, murder? What about women?
