Nick Langford is the man behind the ExInjuria blog. He’ll be speaking at ICMI18 on the topic, ‘An exercise in utter futility: How feminism, falsehood and myth changed the landscape of family law’. Earlier today he posted some comments in response to our blog piece on the TCW article, David Kurten: Transgenderism and this insane ban on free speech, they’re reproduced here in full:
When was the last time the Westminster Parliament actually debated anything controversial – really debated? All debates now on matters such as transexualism, domestic violence, gay marriage, the family courts, etc, etc, are simply a succession of MPs parroting the PC line. Anyone who takes an opposing view – if there are still such people in Parliament – doesn’t dare express it. Gareth Bennett, who probably shares the views of many of his constituents, was either very brave or very naive.
I am coming to the view that this new totalitarianism, which seeks to impose radical ideology without putting up a single argument in its favour and uses the law rather than reasoning to propagate itself, is far more dangerous than feminism, though they are related through their Marxist ancestor.
I was having a conversation with a transgender person recently who said he (her preferred pronoun) despaired at those who pretend to identify as an alternative race or even species: it was giving transgenderism a bad name. I replied that logically I could not see any difference. Society needs to be able to debate these issues freely and express its views; the advocates of the ideology need to argue their case rationally and show the science which proves their case.
Of course, it won’t happen. Anyone who opposed gay marriage on legal grounds, or because it represents a profound failure to understand the true purpose of marriage, was dismissed as a bigot and homophobe, removing any need to argue the case.
Meanwhile, the so-called ‘Conservative’ government will continue to introduce new PC legislation for which no one has voted, and principles such as freedom of speech, democracy and due legal process will vanish into history.
