Probably worth bringing up specifically in relation to the article (vs what it talks about - definitely a necessary topic, one that would probably be best served by something more detailed with a publication paying for a proper long-form piece*):
[TW: transphobia in image-quote]
* eg Really digging into the history of where US and UK “3rd Wave” eras diverged and things like Greer’s '90s sainthood by the strain of UK feminism that currently sits in every editor role; how it got there via the sceptic and New Atheist movement and specifically the split due to misogyny in that movement that means some now lead primarily transphobic hate groups while those who remained lead primarily Islamophobic hate groups - both imported far-Rightist ideologies given (pretty weak) progressive cover.
The really interesting thing is when you bring in the current far-Right radicalisation forums and compare the “rational” (eg Jordan Peterson) language (“Science-y” ideology despite clearly being opposed to mainstream science) they use to the New Atheist movement back then. Talk about how we can see proto-4Chan etc radicalisation in these two distinct UK hate groups which absolutely had the same profile for attracting people who wanted to tie their identity to that framework. And then obviously we can flip back to the US to talk Jesse Singal or Alice Dreger to say the UK may be worse but there’s no shortage of people elsewhere getting plenty of extremely well paid op-eds and being taken seriously talking absolute anti-science transphobia that isn’t just part of the GOP platform or explicitly tied to evangelical funded queerphobia. That many of these hate groups use the fact that other hate groups hate them (Singal’s prominence in part from denouncing GGers; all the UK media feminists pointing to how Channers generally dislike them to show how they clearly can’t be selling a Rightist ideology despite the fact many Channers now parrot almost identical lines about “3rd Wave ruined real feminism; intersectional means bad and diluted.”).
