Watching Belinda Brown on Sunday’s The Big Questions was frightening, and well done to Belinda on taking on the trans-fascists. Let’s be very clear that this is not just a question of ‘imposing one’s view on another person.’ Asking someone i.e Belinda to refer to a woman as he or they is asking that person to lie. And that is bullying. In fact it is worse than that – it is forcing by shaming to get another to endorse a gross untruth.
This is nothing to do with the evolution of the language – which happens over time – as some of the audience insisted. This is the policing of language to encourage a revolution in human revolutions. As you said Belinda, language reflects reality and this is an attempt to erode the reality of women and men and the very real differences between them.
The programme also handily conflated two issues, gender neutrally with the chairman/chairperson nomenclature which is about equality and no longer associating certain roles only with men etc.
That is very, very different to calling a woman a man, or a man a woman, and all the pronouns that follow.
Let’s be clear – these tiny minorities of people are bullies. They will always try to paint the person who refuses to get on the trans train as bad people who refuse the recognise the existence of trans people. As I have said before – the opposite is true.
Of course I feel sorry for those who suffer from gender dysphoria, people who think they are trapped in the wrong body. It must be terrible. But it is also terrible if you are anorexic – to think you are fat when you are not. We do not go along with this delusion because it would dangerous to do so. No more should we indulge a gender delusion or dysphoria all the way to encouraging people, sometimes children, to mutilate their own bodies.
This agenda is worthy of a fascist state – and it must be stopped.
