The real problem is, the New Left has gone fundamentalist in a Foucauldian way. Most people don’t understand why the left now hates ‘transmedicalism’ (most people probably don’t even know what it is anyway). Some leftists keep complaining that ‘transmedicalists’ hate NB people and are hence harmful, even though that’s clearly not the case (for 95%+ at least). But the real reason the left hates transmedicalists is because they need to keep sacred the idea that gender is a social construct, and also the Foucauldian skepticism of medical science.

It is all ideological, and serves no useful purpose.
