I care because, as a male, I have long been horrified at how pervasive sexism has remained in society, and at how in some respects, we’ve taken steps backwards (e.g. increasingly pink/blue binary for children’s toys and clothes). To the extent that transgender activism deals with “innate gender identity” it can only serve to make sexism worse by entrenching regressive sex stereotypes.
I’ve just recently been inspired by J K Rowling’s essay to post on social media about this under my own name. For a while now I’ve also spoken in person to many friends and family members to make them aware of what gender identity ideology actually involves.
Thankfully I’ve not suffered negative consequences yet. However, I remain worried that it might affect me professionally.
