say you don't want this circus we're in but you don't, don't really mean it (с)
...да, она то что называется controversial мыслитель, но я ей симпатизировала с тех самых пор, как читала про ее схватки со стаей товарищей-феминисток :) Давно это было, начало 2000-х, большинство теперешних сетевых радфем с их менсплейнингом, газлайтингом и прочим речекряк-жаргоном патриархально плакались тогда подругам на козлов-мужиков и не слышали ни про каких Фридан и Стейнем, что уж там говорить про Палью :)

These elite Democrats occupy an amorphous meta-realm of subjective emotion, theoretical abstractions, and refined language.

Drunk with words, spin, and snark, middle-class journalists can't be bothered to notice the complex physical constructions that make modern civilization possible. The laborers who build and maintain these marvels are recognized only if they can be shoehorned into victim status. But if they dare to think for themselves and vote differently from their liberal overlords, they are branded as rubes and pariahs.

But today's liberalism has become grotesquely mechanistic and authoritarian: It's all about reducing individuals to a group identity, defining that group in permanent victim terms, and denying others their democratic right to challenge that group and its ideology. Political correctness represents the fossilized institutionalization of once-vital revolutionary ideas, which have become mere rote formulas. It is repressively Stalinist, dependent on a labyrinthine, parasitic bureaucracy to enforce its empty dictates.

Jeffreys identifies transsexualism with misogyny and describes it as a form of "mutilation." She and her feminist allies encountered prolonged difficulties in securing a London speaking venue because of threats and agitation by transgender activists. Finally, Conway Hall was made available: Jeffrey's forceful, detailed lecture there in July of last year is fully available on YouTube. In it she argues among other things, that the pharmaceutical industry, having lost income when routine estrogen therapy for menopausal women was abandoned because of its health risks, has been promoting the relatively new idea of transgenderism in order to create a permanent class of customers who will need to take prescribed hormones for life.
