I care about women’s spaces, their safety, privacy and dignity. It seems strange to me that many lefty types have a blind spot when it comes to women.
I also worry about children who don’t conform to typical gender expectations thinking that they are wrong and need to be corrected.
I talk to my friends and family about this issue as much as I think is possible without alienating / boring them.
I discuss this issue on Twitter most days.
On Twitter I am repeatedly told I am hateful, a bigot or some variation of that theme. At times this has impacted in my mental health. I know I am not motivated by hate, but the idea that I am unwittingly upsetting others sometimes gets to me. I have been sent idle threats, but nothing specific enough to scare me.
