simply accede to their terminology in order to be taken seriously, it?s
time to accept that they're not interested in good-faith dialogue."

And when gender-critical feminists refuse to obey the demands of people
like MM to accept trans definition of who is a woman they face getting
sacked.  Maya Forstater wasn't sacked for denying the existence of
discrimination, of course; she was sacked for, in her own time, refusing to
accept the terminology that biological males are women.

The level of misogyny that is being exposed in this is extraordinary.  See,
for instance, the violent, disturbed poison that gender-critical women have
to put up with every day from a layer of males whop identify as trans
women.  Needless to say there is no equivalent of this fascistic tirade
being directed by gender-critical women against trans-identified men.


Instead of demanding that women get to the back of the bus and shut up, the
progressive position is to demand straight men stop assaulting
trans-identified males.
