Writer Camille Paglia has never been one to shy away from confrontation. Paglia was recently asked why there hasn’t been an open confrontation between feminism and transgenderism.
Paglia pointed out that there has already been a confrontation in the United Kingdom. She cited the transgender community’s attacks on iconic feminist Germaine Greer and radical Australian feminist and author Sheila Jeffreys.
Paglia noted, “Jeffreys identifies transsexualism with misogyny and describes it as a form of ‘mutilation.’ She and her feminist allies encountered prolonged difficulties in securing a London speaking venue because of threats and agitation by transgender activists.”
Paglia is highly skeptical about the current transgender wave. She condemns the use of puberty blockers for children. Paglia described the practice as a criminal violation of human rights. She further explained the irony of liberals who use science to further their global climate change agenda, but then abandon biology when it comes to gender.
Finally, Paglia took the gloves off, saying, “The cold biological truth is that sex changes are impossible. Every single cell of the human body remains coded with one’s birth gender for life. Intersex ambiguities can occur, but they are developmental anomalies that represent a tiny proportion of all human births.”
The Daily Wire reports:
In an interview with The Weekly Standard, writer Camille Paglia, who has never been afraid of confrontation (she identified herself publicly as a lesbian in the 1960’s) had some strong comments about trangenderism, saying, “The cold biological truth is that sex changes are impossible.”
Asked by Jonathan Last why there has not been an open confrontation between feminism and transgenderism, Paglia responded that there has already been such a confrontation in the United Kingdom, citing the transgender community’s attacks on iconic feminist Germaine Greer and radical Australian feminist Sheila Jeffreys, the author of Gender Hurts.
