Decades ago, I watched radical feminism torn apart by political correctness. We started out as a vital movement that included women of all races, socio-economic levels (I, for one, was a welfare recipient, mother and college student.), gender preferences, sexual preferences…. Suddenly — at least that’s how it felt — -women were dictating “correct” feminism, and we lost our fierce vitality. We learned years later that our movement had been infiltrated by agents who used “splitting” techniques to weaken our groups. They would pit one woman against another, insist on rules to make themselves feel safe, attack another woman for her natural abilities.
I worked for decades as a radical environmental sacred land activist and saw the same phenomenon in out movement. I wonder if that same infiltration and disruption isn’t occurring in the transgender movement.
