I care because I am a woman and the old-fashioned kind of feminist who cares about the rights of women and girls. I care because I have an impressionable 12yr old son who I worry would be easily dragged into this madness that I view “woke” as. Also, I don’t like being told what to do – I don’t want to be in the situation where pronouns are always requested.
I have debated online and with friends. I have raised issues at governing body meetings at my local school.
I have been involved in quite hurtful social media spats. On my Facebook page I posted an article about “Karen” White and commented that penises should not be in a women’s prison. For this I was called homophobic, disgusting, and a disgrace by a work colleague.
