The “Gender Critical” Litmus Test, And Why It’s Important

Our Discussion

A) Have you signed the WDI Declaration that calls to remove basically all trans rights we have today? What do you think of people who have?

I do think that it is important to not assume that every GC person supports extremist anti-trans positions. Many of them may not realise how bleak mainstream GCism is because of how extensively the GC movement uses dog whistles. Some people really are just here because of “concerns” they haven’t seen the answers to yet. Accusing people of believing things that they don’t is counter productive for everyone. But if they are unwilling to call out extremism then it’s good sign that you’d be a fool to give them the benefit of the doubt. Many GCs will pretend to be moderates in bad faith because they know it sells better, or even because they just want to waste your time.
