Mum 2: “In the 60’s you’ll campaign for women’s rights…”. Mum 3: “…and 60 years later a bunch of faux feminists will campaign so your grand-daughter can live just like me!”. Child: “Really cool, Mummy-o!”

A brief delve into the ideological underpinnings of the anti-trans. Plus, on this Trans Day of Visibility 2023, your reminder of a simple truth memorably catalogued by Pastor Niemoller: if minorities and other oppressed groups do not stand together, they will inevitably fall in isolation.

Also, the endgame: that is, the role of women. Because ever since Women’s Lib first began to make waves, the most ardent supporters of the patriarchy have wanted women back in their box, of happy domesticity,

Rather, he did the right and proper thing, insisting the mob rape his daughters instead. Later, he shagged them; his daughters, that is, not the mob.

From this the christies have extracted the lesson that homosexuality is bad. Go figure!
