There is no provincial more provincial than an academic.
The Left is socialist and divides everything into race, class, gender categories.
Millions died to show the world that racial (also called national) socialism was bad. Ten of millions died to demonstrate to a near-majority of the world that class (also called international) socialism (that is, communism) was bad. Millions of children and adults will be mutilated and die to prove to the world that gender socialism is bad.
If only there were something in common among race socialism, class socialism, and gender socialism that could allow us to anticipate the vileness of gender socialism and to reject it now before millions suffer. If only.
Gender socialism promotes weird surgeries that would have disgusted a Nazi (or Japanese surgeon) convicted of crimes against humanity.
