I'm sincerely glad this article was published, because quite frankly, speaking out on these issues was burning me out and seriously detrimental to my mental health. The more people are talking about the links between the "gender critical" movement and the far right, the better.

For a while there, over the past 2 or 3 years, it felt like I was alone and shouting into the void that this was happening, that the religious right were coopting and presenting themselves as "feminist" in order to pursue an anti-LGBT, anti-woman agenda.

It felt like if I didn't talk about these issues, nobody else would. And that's something I had never set out to do. Engaging at all with that kind of hate takes a toll. It's a burden. And I can only be glad that more people are sharing that burden.
