Great argument. Thanks for the debate. As long as we just keep “moving on” with every issue, everything will just magically solve itself and people won’t ever feel like they need answers, or feel like they can question, or debate things, that’s fantastic. It’s not like the medical and pyscological world is still in debate and conflict about it, it’s not like they are experts or anything and that actual transgender people, who some are driven to suicide, can’t get an answer or feel like they are being let down by the medical industry, are left without an answer, as long as everyone just “moves on” that’s just fine. I’m
And what do we tell these transgender people that are forced to feel like they have no option but to transition back? What shall we tell the young kids that don’t know any better getting manipulated into thinking certain ways and eventually driven to suicide later in life because of their young minds being manipulated rather than helped?
Aye that’s great, let’s just ignore every single issue and move on. Because that’s what gets things solved.
This is the very point I was making. I used to respect the left for a good debate, they used to encourage critical thinking, debate, thinking differently, questioning, but now it’s just devolved into an echo chamber of people demanding and preaching about what can and can’t be said or thought, what’s offensive and what’s not, moving the goal posts to suit, and demanding that anyone who so much as dare question them is a xenophobic, homophobic, transphobic, racist, misogynist, sexist, ageist, ableist or whatever. Debate, questioning and critical thinking has gone right out the window.
And the regressive left wonder why, Tories won, Brexit won, trump won, Austria has its first right wing political seat since WW2, Merkel has taken a hit, everyone wants out of the EU and right wing political groups in Europe have gained huge popularity? Because the regressive left have become less about real values and more about mud slinging, anti-free speech, anti criticism and preaching about what is offensive and what people can think say or do.
