“If you need help exiting the cult…“
Oh the irony!
All the comments and reactions are variants of “good luck with that mate” because we aren’t homophobic, xenophobic, transphobic and whatever else we’re accused of.
The worst you’ll find is women who are repelled by men in dresses arguing with women who don’t kind so much.
Or some disagreement about whether the “true trans” is a real thing.
Lots of newly peaked women freaking out and finding their bearings.
But wait! What’s a dog whistle?
Dog whistle politics is where you say seemingly reasonable things which are a cipher for your truly regressive and oppressive politics. The wider public trust your “moderate” approach and your base still understands that you are with their extreme interests.
“Family values” is a good example. Does this mean more schools or does this mean ban homosexuality? It could mean both. An audible message and an inaudible “dog whistle” second meaning.
With a little enquiry, it is possible to find out whether a dog whistle is in play.
So what’s the GC dog whistle? You have to ask that question. An accusation of dog whistle politics is an accusation that you are a liar.
YOU have to challenge this accusation wherever it occurs. Ask “what is the deeper meaning?”
It won’t take long to uncover their lies and lazy arguments. There’s no hidden meaning. Men are not women. No child is born in the wrong body. There’s nothing wrong with being a lesbian.
Gender is harmful.
