The gender identity movement is a direct consequence of intersectional feminism. If it's harming women, they can only blame themselves. But no one will because

I don't understand what the uproar is. Transgender people are not some new group of dangerous men. We have all been sharing public spaces with transgender men and women for years, and probably have been oblivious to it

This isn't a"woman" issue. It is a human issue. I asked men if they would feel comfortable in a public rest room if a woman walked in. The looks on their faces told the story - even the thought was embarrassing to them! This is a human issue. Do what Europe does and some American public places have done - one men's room, one woman's room and one family room (to be used by parents with small children, transgenders, etc. one at a time).

The argument that expanding protections for one marginalized group would somehow take away protections from another group is pretty twisted conservative politician logic that has nothing to do with reality.

Females are more likely to be attacked by someone they know. They're safer in a bathroom w a transgender stranger than church, school or family reunion.

Whenever I went to a concert of large event, and stood in a long, long, long line for the women's room while the men's rooms stood empty, I thought - everyone should be able to use every bathroom. Sometimes we would just say enough is enough and use the men's room...

Here's a thought: how about we stop"identifying" anyone by race, gender, color religion? How about we actually take the time to know someone and identify each as themselves- a unique individual? Do we really care, in a female bathroom, which has stalls, who is in the next stall? Are we really that fragile? Hopefully, each of us has more important things in life on which to concentrate.

Austria's far-right Identity Movement opposes globalization and"Islamization" -- but a key figure of the group says they see themselves as patriots, not neo-Nazis.

I 100% agree with you. Everything that I want to say, you said it already.

A clean-cut 27-year-old graphic designer, wearing black-framed glasses and brightly-colored shirts advertising Identity Movement slogans such as “Europa Nostra”–“Our Europe”–Sellner has been called the “hipster” of the far-right.

In a progression of posts on YouTube, Sellner recommends white Christians are very nearly"eradication," progressively minimized by developing quantities of vagrants in what he calls the"Incomparable Substitution."
