In the UK, there is a mixed climate. It has to be said bigotry shouts louder and the news media can profit by promoting what it sees as injustice, such as womens sport being destroyed by men in dresses. Or women are in real danger of attack by trans women in their safe toilets. Neither of these are actually true but then the reality wouldn’t sell a single newspaper.
The UK should perhaps apologise for J.K.Rowling and her fear mongering, which has nothing to do with womens safety from trans women…though from everyday men perhaps so. Transphobia isn’t evident in everyday life in the UK, in fact quite the opposite. Every woman I have spoken too since I became trans has supported and applauded my courage to be who I really am. I get support and encouragement at every turn for being a woman if I believe that is what I am…even embraced and accepted as a woman by them. Agreed the UK has a very low religious community and the vast majority of both men and woman support the right to live and let live as a human right, irrespective of religious beliefs.
I believe this anti woke backlash is just a phase and belongs to a generation that still struggles with the equality of colour and sex, so gender is another attack on their bigotry. They are slipping into history. There is no place in the modern world for intolerance, the bigots days are numbered…and that includes religion bigotry.
Mahatma Gandhi put it well in his fight against oppression: ‘First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you…then you win.’
