Alongside a push to legislate for unquestioning acceptance of the concept of ‘gender fluidity’, we are witnessing a drive by the state to police not only actions, but words, and to criminalise as ‘hate speech’ all attempts to discuss the most basic facts of the matter.
Can you be born in the ‘wrong body’? Is sex something real or just an imaginary social construct? Does who you sleep with define who you are? Why is there such growing and persistent abuse of the word ‘community’?
And how have we arrived at a moment where the exploiters are able to appoint themselves the judges of all matters relating to the struggle for freedom of the exploited?
These are essential questions that workers must have the right to ask. Under attack is not only our freedom of speech and thought, but our very understanding of the world we live in and the way we organise our struggle for socialism.
