Ep 142: Left Wing Culture War 5: Protection or Solidarity?
TERF’s: the ever present punching bag of the woke left that ruined Harry Potter. I finish my series on inter left conflict with the one revolving around Trans rights, but may touch at wider ideas about what makes a leftist in the first place. I also bookend the show with takes on the silly but complex slap by Will Smith. In the First Half I cover a Full background of TERFs and their effects over the years and today then a response to the argument over kink and politics at Pride.
In the 2nd half I use the ongoing sports issue to discuss the separation from the ‘gender critical’ from the effects of their politics; then cover the pushing out of TERFs from the Greens in the UK and US, with parting words that Solidarity, not Paranoia and protection make the difference.
