Who’s on trial here?
In the past two weeks, the regional activist scene in the Balkans just couldn’t contain its obsession with the appointment of the new director of the Center for Women’s Studies in Zagreb, Dorotea Šušak. From the very moment she was appointed to that position, she has been a subject of numerous announcements, accusations, endless comments, rumors, he-said-she-saids, all ending in waves of sexist abuse and calls for resignation. Having in mind that this kind of appointment never gets this amount of attention, but also having followed the “TRA-TERF” debate (which is, in the local context, a knock-off copy of the debate on the Western feminist and leftist scene), one has to realize that all this has little to do with Dorotea Šušak herself, and with the Center for Women’s Studies only to some extent.

The sex binary is not a ‘Western construct,’ gender identity is
Among the many incoherent or indefensible arguments made to support the concept of “gender identity” and associated demands for legislative and policy changes, the coopting and misrepresentation of sexual minorities and gender non-conforming people in Eastern and Southern cultures may be one of the most egregious.

Irish “socialist” TD’s and NGO’s join forces to disenfranchise women and materialists
In a stunning move Ireland’s NGO elites, including Amnesty International, supported by Paul Murphy TD and Thomas Pringle TD, have published an open letter in Gay Community News attacking those who would seek to “defend biology”(1), as well as attacking those who defend: the right of women to have some areas of privacy and safety away from males, such as changing rooms, shelters, and prisons; those who oppose gender self-identification laws, where anyone can get legal recognition as the opposite sex by simple self-declaration; and those who oppose the “affirmative model” of so-called transgender health care, which is not backed-up by evidence, and includes harsh treatments which can sterilise minors and young adults, most of whom are same-sex attracted. In their letter, our self-appointed guardians of public morality, painted the people who hold these views as far-right bigots who should be denied media or political representation.
