Call yourself whatever you like.
Sleep with any consenting adult who’ll have you.
Live your best life in peace and security.
But force women out of their jobs for stating that sex is real? #IStandWithMaya #ThisIsNotADrill
The JK Rowling controversy has exposed one of the most chilling aspects of the woke ideology: the sheer certainty of its adherents.— Andrew Doyle (@andrewdoyle_com) December 21, 2019
It never occurs to these people that they might be wrong. That’s why they refuse to debate.

Which is a more valid fear?— Chad Felix Greene (@chadfelixg) December 21, 2019
– Being misgendered.
– Being accused of transphobia, having your name and photo plastered over every online website with the label 'anti-trans', losing your job and being denounced by powerful media figures for weeks.

"I got one: We target the most beloved author in the history of children's literature on an insane pretext… because she supports women or something, then troll anyone who supports her"
Progressive love forced recantations:
I TOTALLY misunderstood someone’s tweet today, and “liked” it. It’s been explained to me that her comment was transphobic, and now I’m horrified that I “liked” it. I assure you I misread/misunderstood her intent. (I’ve of course “unliked” it.)Sorry!🙏🏻— Bebe Neuwirth (@BebeNeuwirth) December 19, 2019
Andrew Sullivan writes (second item):
One of the long-held principles of the gay-rights movement has been that it’s wrong to fire someone just because they’re gay. Now, one of the principles of the LGBTQ movement is that it’s fine to fire someone if they disagree in the slightest with every claim of gender ideology.
This shift from a “live and let live” to a “do what I say or else” movement is one reason I don’t identify with this activism any more. I loathe the idea of forcing people to say things they don’t believe, demonizing and ostracizing them for their dissent, and enshrining in law penalties for wrongthink. I am very happy to live alongside people whose faith makes them consider me a sinner. As long as they cannot touch a hair on my head or use the law to punish me for what I believe and how I live, I’m fine. But that pluralist worldview is anathema to the “social justice” movement, as it proves every single day. …
Resisting this authoritarianism of the left is as vital to our liberal democracy as resisting the authoritarianism of the right. Yes, I stand with Maya. And, no, this is not a drill. It’s a fight for freedom of thought and empirical reality.

It used to be considered reasonable to listen & try to understand both sides of an argument. But now, if opposing extremists are screaming at each other & you don’t agree 100% with either, you’re considered the enemy of both. It’s why many people are afraid to contribute at all.— Ricky Gervais (@rickygervais) December 23, 2019
