So let's recap. @preta_6 and @christophelston rented a billboard that said "I ❤ jk rowling" from Pattison.
Pattison has a monopoly on billboards here.
A city official was among those directly demanding Pattison remove the billboard, citing hatred.
The billboard was removed.
The billboard does not, in fact meet the legal definition of hatred.

Even if it did, the Oakes Test seems clear it's removal wouldn't be warranted.

It could be claimed that Pattison discriminated against Amy because she was promoting sex based rights for women.
That was fun!

The Woke Wahabbists showed everyone who they are. We all love to joke the Saudi Arabia is oppressive because feminism is illegal there. Well, rad feminism is being suppressed here in Vancouver. Women are no longer allowed to gather or promote sex based rights.
When Bill c-16 was brought in we were assured this wouldn't affect sex based rights. Introducing GI was meant to promote trans/nb spaces and services, not remove existing ones from women!
Not sure what else to say except this feels like Wahabbism.

I really think identitarian movements like the trans and ND movements are woke thuggery. These people harass, and terrorise and intimidate their targets in a bid to exercise "social justice". They doxx, they gossip, spread lies. This is social justice to them.
What this actually is, though? Thuggery. This is how abusers engage their prey. They stalk. They instill fear. They menace and slander. They destroy anyone who dares to challenge them. Narcissistic rage is frightening to behold, it wants to kill anything that defies it.
This behaviour I'm witnessing from the pomo left is exactly like the abuse I experienced in domestic violence and narcissistic abuse. The transcult is collective abuse. The ND movement is collective abuse. Any form of collective narcissism is abuse.

I find it annoying that many fail to understand the difference between seeking to understand a person's behaviour and excusing a person's behaviour.

Example to follow.
I was many times told by those with Dunning Kruger mentality that my cocaine and crack addiction was a choice. It was an obsessive compulsion, a thing i did not want to do which i felt compelled to do. It was like being a slave while some sinister force took over.
Obsessive compulsion isn't a choice. As an aspergerian autist I grapple with obsession and compulsion and it's difficult to do and it takes a lot of resilience and strength.

Extended empathy is putting myself in the shoes of another. Because I need understand.
