“steal Abigail Shrier’s book and burn it on a pyre”
So we have finally come to the point where progressives are advocating the burning of books. Frankly, I’m surprised it took this long.
Campus Reform reports:
Berkeley English prof tells people to ‘burn’ ‘transphobic’ book
A University of California-Berkeley English professor encouraged her followers to purchase a book criticizing the transgender movement, then “burn it on a pyre.”
Following criticism, Target removed Abigail Shrier’s book Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters, which discusses the effect of the transgender movement on young girls, from its site on Nov. 12. However, the department store chain reversed its decision the next day, returning the book to its shelves.
University of California-Berkeley English professor Grace Lavery criticized those who approve of the book’s message: “If you don’t think the phrase ‘transgender craze that’s seducing our daughters’ is transphobic, I presume it is because you don’t believe transphobia is real.”
Lavery then pointed out that Target does not carry many academic works about transgenderism.
She then called upon her followers to “steal Abigail Shrier’s book and burn it on a pyre.”
Since some ppl have misunderstood my tone, and censorship is an important matter and as a public educator I have a duty to be precise, let me clarify:
? I do NOT advocate defacing library books.
✅ I DO encourage followers to steal Abigail Shrier’s book and burn it on a pyre.
