A Female Green Beret is Nothing to Celebrate — ANTHRO FEMINISM

Excellent points here.  In the Global North, imperialist ideology has made major inroads in keeping workers and the oppressed opposed to one another via "incremental change includes the armed forces, no matter how bad they are" rationalisations. This is a major way in which 'GLBTIQ' has become an identity-obsessed, solidarity-devoid neoliberal force/farce.

Violence, debate, and Britain’s GRA

freer lives

The punch-a-terf, kill-a-terf message pervades social media, always righteously delivered, chin held high. By contrast, the dehumanised “terfs” themselves, that is gender-critical feminists, rarely if ever urge violence against opponents either literally or figuratively.
