I am chilled by the unwillingness to debate a rights conflict. The tsunami of misogyny directed at women with the courage to speak makes me sick. I think language is so important; women need our words to describe ourselves, it’s not hateful or unreasonable. I am so disappointed in the left, I feel politically homeless.
Very little, I suffer from anxiety and I am too scared. I work in the library service in London. Pronouns are appearing in email signatures, a colleague suggested drag for under 5s sessions (I did say something about there being reasonable, not transphobic, not homophobic, objections to this). Even in a public service environment I am afraid to say too much for fear of being labelled a bigot.
I’ve said very little but no overt reaction to the little I did say.
