Small town

Why would gender critical feminists in the UK be associated with the Republicans in any way? They’re two different countries. The Republican party is of little interest to most people in the UK, just as the Tory party is of little interest to most people here. We don’t decide what we think based on how “associated” our thinking may be with a political party in another country; that would be stupid and futile and time-consuming. Maybe there’s a political party in Uruguay that we shouldn’t be associated with? Or maybe Thailand? Kenya? Better check, right? No. Different countries are different countries. We have enough to do to keep track locally.

It’s very parochial of Julia Wong to think women in the UK have to check with the US before they’re allowed to think and say something.
