Cancel culture comes after famed atheist Richard Dawkins

The radicalism of young progressives is jarring to the elderly liberals who did the hard work of clearing God and Christianity out of the way, mainstreaming the redefinition of marriage, and championing abortion.

The culture wars of the 2020s are creating some strange bedfellows. J.K. Rowling, the author of a series of books Christian parents treated with healthy suspicion, has come out against the trans ideologues along with a litany of other beleaguered feminists.

[…]  But in 2021, the battle lines no longer pit Right against Left so much as those willing to unharness from biology and take the plunge into radical autonomy and self-realization at all costs versus those who believe that this is an incredibly dangerous path—particularly for the upcoming generation of guinea pigs weaned on LGBT entertainment, public school propaganda, and the dark digit forests of the interwebs.

Meanwhile, trans ideologues have been cutting their way through progressive ranks, dispatching traitors and those who refuse to bend the knee to the new gender regime. Even an icon as renowned as Germaine Greer, whose taboo-smashing 1970 book The Female Eunuch became a seminal feminist text is not safe. Young people these days are far more radical than Greer ever was, and far less tolerant of dissent. The Sexual Revolution, it turns out, is the same sort of revolution that had Robespierre thrusting his own head into the guillotine.
