“By gender freedom, I do not mean we all get to choose our gender. Rather, we get to make a political claim to live freely and without fear of discrimination and violence against the genders that we are. Many people who were assigned “female” at birth never felt at home with that assignment, and those people (including me) tell all of us something important about the constraints of traditional gender norms for many who fall outside its terms”
- Judith Butler
@vicorva That’s what the New Statesman’s like these days, I’m afraid. I remember the Twitter fights that started them heading that way, eight or nine years ago :-(
@ghost_bird it's bizarre and chilling.
@vicorva Agreed. And it makes me sad to see it so prevalent in British journalism.
