SILENCING

“We are in a new era of witch burning, except that today, the fire is that of media and propaganda, with trans activists and their supporters suppressing any information that contradicts their goals and silencing their critics through oppressive tactics. Some of our contributors have been fired from teaching positions at universities; some have been blacklisted; others threatened with physical harm, rape, even death – all because they have questioned or challenged the idea that the cultural construct of gender should supplant biological sex. Others have been de-platformed as speakers at universities for expressing what should be a matter of common sense: that women, many of whom have been sexually assaulted by males, should have the right to shower, bathe, sleep, or organize free from the presence of males.”

This part of the site began as an article entitled ‘Silencing Critical Voices’ in a section called ‘Hatred & Silencing’. It perhaps got a bit buried there, so I divided the section into two separate parts. Also, it was a very long article and as I anticipate adding more on silencing, I’ve decided to break it up into several pages for easier reading. These are the pages:

Abuse & Emotional Blackmail

No Platforming

Linda Bellos

Germaine Greer

Jenni Murray
