I've run out of ways to persuade people they should care about this
Does anyone have any suggestions?
Coercion of lesbians doesn’t do it, mutilation of young girls doesn’t do it, silencing of feminists doesn’t do it, destruction of women’s sports doesn’t do it, psychotic harassment of women doesn’t do it. The conmen don’t persuade them, neither do the predators, the fetishists or the misogynists. Rape victims don’t move them, lesbian rights are meaningless, safeguarding is outdated, and women deserve to be assaulted.
It is the great moral failing of this moment. And I’m not talking about the credulous “be kind” hippies chanting “transwomen are women”, who at least believe they’re doing the right thing, but the people who remain silent, knowing they’re not.
If just a few big names spoke up, even to do something as basic as defend JK Rowling’s freedom of speech, it would make all the difference in the world. But we’re into our sixth year of dead silence on the matter, and people like Jeremy Vine pretending to be stupid to stay out of trouble.

Once again, this is a massive failure of the celebrity class. It will look not unlike Savile when it’s all over, with the biggest difference being that no-one will be able to credibly assert that they didn’t know it was happening.
I mean, what will it take? Do none of you have women in your lives? How can you take these insults? Speak out, for God’s sake!
