Our thanks to Nigel for this. He writes:
Yet again supposedly “silenced” Kathleen Stock gets a nice big space to set out her complaints. And while I would have to agree with much that she says about her actual views on “trans” I’m equally struck by her absence of any indication she recognises that the tactics used against her are precisely those pioneered by feminists. In the same edition we read that the police shout “snitch” on any colleagues who say “disgusting” things about women (as usually it’s free rein on disgusting remarks about men). I’m sure a stance to get wide support but as we know the categories of “disgusting” soon slide into “male gaze” “unwanted compliments”, “sexist” comments such as “women nurture babies”, and the like. As feminists expand ever wider the “micro aggressions” that somehow become “rape culture”.
I am reminded by this article by precisely the same hounding of Professor Fiamengo for the simple observations that legal equality was achieved and as there are many more female students than male continuing to actively discriminate in Universities is unjust. Though I note Prof. Fiamengo continued to fight her corner for many years and never got the luxury of writing lots of articles in the mainstream press about her treatment.
I have no doubt Professor Stock was not one to defend male academics similarly hounded for simple statements of biology or even defence of civil rights in the courts, such as the right to jury trial. Or even off the cuff remarks or jokes taken out of context, let alone observations of the facts.
I seriously doubt Mz. Stock will reflect on the sisterhood’s role in enabling the TERF wars and supplying them with the weapons now pointed at her, Julie Bindel etc.
