I care because appropriating the word “women” to include men pretending to be women, erases women. It diminishes our rights and has been shown to place us in a subordinated position where we are actively silenced and openly bullied.
I have used Twitter to voice my objections regularly but anonymously. I am involved in Fair Cop campaign to address stonewall’s and mermaids’ institutional capture. I would raise my voice a lot more if I didn’t fear for my business.
I have been shunned by friends, received abuse and threats online. I fear for my business and have to remain away from any publicity.
