If you want to address authoritarian trans activism (and I think you should), please do so in a principled and reasoned way by addressing the authoritarianism. Being insulting about the attractiveness of trans women activists doesn’t help with this endeavour & demeans us all.

"The ultimate telos [of Critical Theory] is to destroy individual autonomy. What we have to do to get there is destroy man's connection to God, to family, to the past, to anything associated with truth, beauty, & goodness."

Great piece by @HPluckrose urging society to look at the Kathleen Stock persecution & grasp “the difference between”:
- distress & physical harm
- making arguments & targeting individuals for harassment
- criticism of ideas & punishment for them

"Racial & ethnic identity are self-reinforcing castes. Any hope invested in them demands 'authority' & 'authenticity.' Power will be accorded to those who can fake it. That makes authority & authenticity untrustworthy."
