In some of the most enlightened, progressive nations in the world, it is now apparently a matter of law that a woman might face literal prison time for claiming that men cannot get pregnant:
A Norwegian feminist is being investigated by the police for refuting the claims of a trans activist that a biological male can be a lesbian in a tweet.
Christina Ellingsen, of the global feminist organization Women's Declaration International (WDI), criticized Norway's trans activism group FRI last October for telling kids that biological males can be lesbians.
"Why [does] FRI teach young people that males can be lesbians? Isn't that conversion therapy?" Ellingsen allegedly tweeted.
In another tweet, Ellingsen blasted FRI's advisor Christine Jentoft for identifying as a lesbian despite being a biological male.
We should note here that the term "biological male" is a supernumerary term: "Male" already describes biology, so there' s no need to qualify it with "biological."
But we digress. Ellingsen, to her credit, is not backing down:
Speaking to Reduxx, Ellingsen said that the police were investigating her "for campaigning for women's rights," adding that "to certain groups, the fact that women and girls are female and that men cannot be women, girls, mothers or lesbians, is considered hateful."
She added: "The fact that police are legally able to investigate and persecute women who engage in women's rights is concerning."
With all due respect to this very brave woman, that's an understatement: It's not "concerning" that the police are engaging in wholesale persecution of women on these grounds, it's downright insane and terrifying and it shouldn't be tolerated.
Unfortunately, there's precedent in Norway for this kind of insanity:
In 2021, a Norwegian man was jailed for three weeks and a substantial fine for being found guilty of misgendering and insulting a person who identifies as trans on Facebook.
Say it with me now:
If you live in a country that throws people in jail for stating unequivocal scientific facts... consider getting out!
