I just saw that the top comment is a one star review saying if you read the book, he will unfriend you as you are a hateful transphobe. The comment had over a hundred of (that I saw) supportive comments.

I am absolutely terrified of the close-minded, self-righteousness of these young people. We are in for some illiberal bad times.

Those aren't particularly well done commercials, but I do think if they tried harder using actual examples like the boys winning all the girls track and field sprint events in Connecticut or just showing actual footage of the Rachel McKinnons, Hannah Mounceys, and Fallon Foxes of the sports world (or headlines about Fox breaking a woman's skull and Mouncey breaking the woman's leg, even the findings of the Rugby league) with a voiceover that Biden/generic democratic candidate doesn't care about women's sports and safety would really catch people's attention. If I wasn't peaked, the pictures of Mouncey next to female players would have been enough for me, and I would think twice before supporting a candidate that supported the destruction of women's sports.

I may be wrong, but I don't think this is a winning message; particularly in the two weeks after a rapist awaiting trial was released due to Covid and proceeded to murder his victim, then the MA Bail Fund paid bail for the rapist who promptly raped another woman.

This article replacing sex with gender throughout was annoying. Gender is a made-up term. Sex is the real and relevant classification.

Also, women's health has been ignored since time began. Half of the world's population does not have good statistical information on medication dosages, differences in health problem presentation, even reference values. Maybe we should sort that out before focusing on a tiny population.

They have solved this problem by transing every strong female historical figure: Marie Curie, Joan of Arc, all the female authors who published under a male name, all Viking women. If history doesn't feature your cult, just rewrite history.

It is a lot easier to pander to the critical theory/gender cult than to pass meaningful legislation to address the deep economic and environmental problems we face.

Why are corporations stomping at the bit to stand by the trans cult? It doesn't cost them economically. Same with all the other critical theory offshoots, they just require word salad and social media posts, then they can keep exploiting people, but now there is no class solidarity because every race, sex, genderspecial sees the other groups as their oppressors.

"If a man has more "feminine" hobbies or personality traits, then they should be allowed to do so without being harassment." I agree, but I don't agree that having hobbies commonly associated with women makes a man a woman. Let that man enjoy his hobbies, but don't pretend to be a woman; just live life as the dude you are as you enjoy your hobbies.

I think much of the woke left is made up of incredibly naive young college students/graduates who come from nice middle/upper class families with absolutely no understanding of the real world or how their ideals will be implemented within it.

They think trans people are the most oppressed minority (they just want to pee) without understanding that the bulk of TIMs are autogynaphiles, that half of all trans inmates are in prison for sex crimes, that serious mental health co-morbidities exist in a substantial portion of the trans population, and finally that the trans ideology has the fundamental flaw that it allows bad actors to use the ideology for their own purposes and no one can question them.

These same naive people don't understand that some people cannot peacefully exist in society, but unfortunately, these wokesters won't often experience the repercussions of their actions; vulnerable women and children with few resources will.

From a Quillette interview with Dr. Ray Blanchard, "When I looked at the relative numbers of autogynephilic and androphilic gender-dysphoric males back in 1987, the autogynephilic cases were already a majority, approaching 60 percent. The proportion had reached 75 percent by 2010, and it might be even higher now." Interview link: https://quillette.com/2019/11/06/what-is-autogynephilia-an-interview-with-dr-ray-blanchard/
