I agree. This piece does use manipulation to get people to intellectually conform because it’s deliberately unclear and lacking in definitions and then positions as the victim even when using aggressive language like TE*F. The author constantly misunderstands and misrepresents people who are critical of gender ideology and the trans lobby affecting sex based spaces/rights. How could the author really believe this is all about them? I don’t understand this, perhaps because I’m not a narcissist. Regardless, this is all very fascinating and telling.
