To speak on behalf of women is not to speak for or over them

We should expose the emptiness of femininity compared to femaleness

Keir Starmer’s confusion on gender is the result of years of cowardice

Mere transgression is being elevated above genuine insight and creativity

Pseudo-progressives are resurrecting gender stereotypes

Don’t pretend that feminists are being “radical” for no reason

“Gender critical” feminists have represented the best of feminism

Trans activism is uniquely incompatible with anti-rape activism

Concerns about over-prescription should not be trivialised or problematised

We have to resist the mass gaslighting of women and girls
