1/9 The fight to beat the #genderidentityindustry is going to have to be nonpartisan. Not bi-partisan, not cross-partisan. It has to be nonpartisan and global.
2/9 I recently accepted an invitation to speak with a group of US Republican women. They invited me knowing that I am a radical feminist Democrat. They expressly wanted to hear my feminist critique of "gender identity."
3/9 One woman asked, "Kara, what are we going to do about the problem of transgender athletes competing in women's sports?"
4/9 My response: "Well, I have ideas about advocacy, but first, let's step back. When you say 'transgender athletes,' what is the category of people that you are referring to?"
5/9 She paused, and then said, "Well, I guess I just thought I have to use that phrase." I then asked if she was referring to the category of people known as men and boys. She said yes. I said, "You can just say that, then."
6/9 She said, "I didn't know that I was allowed to say that." I told her that she is. The entire room breathed a collective sign of relief to hear that they can simply say what they know to be true.
7/9 I have also spoken with Senate Democratic staffers and told them, as a Democrat, that the party is going to lose voters, especially women, if they continue with this.
8/9 I will talk with anyone - regardless of party - about the stakes that are involved and about what we are up against. Anybody. Republicans and Democrats alike need to hear from feminists. I will meet with any group, any time, to talk about this. The time is now.
9/9 Let's talk. karadansky.com

1/10 @JamesCarville Great work here on CNN! cnn.com/videos/tv/2021…
2/10 @JamesCarville I am a lifelong Democrat and I couldn't agree more. Last month, I was asked if I have given up on the Democrats, and my response was, basically, not yet. But I'm close. You can listen here if you'd like. angusfox.substack.com/p/keeping-up-t…
3/10 @JamesCarville I have gone on the Tucker Carlson show a few times to explain my feminist objections to enshrining so-called "gender identity" in the law, and I have gotten a lot of push-back. Here is the first time I was on the show, in 2017.
