“I do not believe that the solution to our problem is simply to elect the right people. The important thing is to establish a political climate of opinion which will make it politically profitable for the wrong people to do the right thing. Unless it is politically profitable for the wrong people to do the right thing, the right people will not do the right thing either, or if they try, they will shortly be out of office.”
― Milton Friedman

“Human beings are born with different capacities. If they are free, they are not equal. And if they are equal, they are not free.”

Feminist: Biological sex real

... judge demurs.

Radical feminist warned to refer to transgender defendant as a 'she' during assault case

Truce in the pronoun wars? Note the judge's (apparent) use of "Miss" and "she." If the quote's inaccurate The Telegraph is in trouble.
"District Judge Kenneth Grant warned Ms MacLachlan to refer to Miss Wolf as “she” while giving evidence.

He said: "The defendant wished to be referred to as a woman, so perhaps you could refer to her as 'she' for the purpose of the proceedings."

Ms MacLachlan replied: "I'm used to thinking of this person who is a male as male."

The row was the latest in an ongoing battle between Trans-Exclusionary Radical Feminists (TERFs), who believe that transwomen should not be given the same rights as those born female, and transgender activists."
Female Privilege? Just a ploy to stop 26 year old males from punching you if you're a 61 year old female? Maybe that's redundant.

And, what are the exclusive rights of those born female?
"She [the accused] described the event as a hate rally and said the fight broke out because she feared Ms MacLachlan planned to out her as transgender online."
Um, isn't the point of participating in a public rally to make sure people know you're trans? How can we get woke if it's not pushed into our faces?

BTW, the verdict was "guilty." And the accused's desire not to be outed seems to have been frustrated. Her picture is even more prominent after her conviction. And what do you bet "Miss" Wolf has a Facebook page?
