Irreversible Damage — Abigail Shrier
The End of Gender — Dr Deborah Soh
I was impressed enough by Joe Rogan’s interviews with both Abigail Shrier and Dr Deborah Soh to want to read their books. I am interested in the facts of this issue, not in people’s feelings, delusions, dogma or word games, and these books seem to have plenty of facts. But to some people, even admitting to having read them is a thought crime, as though they are like a version of Mein Kampf that clamps itself to your face, forces an egg down your throat and chestbursts an actual Nazi Stormtrooper out of you. I read Mein Kampf for a history dissertation. It wasn’t anywhere near that exciting. But I did get to know my enemy. History is littered with stories of the victims of ideology.
Gulag survivor Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn warned us we should not live by lies. Still, even though I have extensive and honest reviews written for both of these books, I cannot publish them here. Why? I won’t lie, so I can’t speak. The authorities in my country abuse their power to silence, harass and destroy anyone who has anything to say about this issue other than complete capitulation to the associated ideology and the chanting of its mantras. Really, that in itself should tell you all you need to know.
