Allies on the right? Are you kidding?

One thing I’ve been hearing a LOT is that gender-critical feminists now “have” to ally themselves with the political right because the “woke” left has abandoned them. There’s lots of (well-deserved) criticism for President Biden’s recent gender legislation & of course, now the radical right contingent in the Senate has taken it up.

Check out this picture. Now you can complain about the lousy science spouted by the “woke” left but this is every bit as bad. There are two SEXES. There are who knows how many genders, seems there’s more everyday. But there’s only two sexes & maybe a third intersex that is very rare & has nothing to do with GENDER.

Obviously, this woman & her office do not understand the difference between sex & gender, which is the same problem that the left is having. Apparently, nobody in America (or the entire world, now) knows the F*ng difference between SEX & GENDER. Except maybe a few of us older feminists & nobody seems to want to listen to us but what’s new on that score, amirite?

My point is, Marjorie Green & her ilk are not allies of feminists or of our issues. The enemy of my enemy is not my friend. Do not not be fooled.

I saw this in my inbox this morning & at first I was confused:

I’ll be honest, I don’t remember posting anything like that … it must have been well over a year ago. Medium now operates behind a firewall, so I haven’t read any of their articles in eons. Amazing how long it took them to see this example of so-called “hate speech”.

I gotta admit, part of me really doesn’t care anymore. If pointing out that babies are NOT “assigned” gender at birth, that sex is observed (usually before birth, hasn’t anyone heard of sonograms?) , if this kind of common-sense comment is now “hate speech”, or any of the other ridiculous things Medium claimed it was, Medium & every so-called journalistic outlet like them can go F themselves. I have no patience for people who make up their own facts to support their ideology. & I’m tired of arguing. I have better things to do. Live in your silly little world where it’s all about the magical thinking & I’ll live in mine … where things are real. Even the magic.
