Robin Eames Ugh. I was almost hopeful until her bit about “pc gone mad”. She hasn’t learnt from this at all.

Heath Loxtivan Robin, what you need to learn one day is that identity politics does nothing good for anyone. This is because identity politics causes division within already oppressed communities (such as the disability community), prevents people who live in multiple oppressed communities from uniting together (being both black and gay for instance), and fails to offer a plan of action or a solution to abolish the capitalist economic system which is THE sole cause of ALL social oppression that identity politics tries to eliminate with silly band aid measures like safe spaces and ethics guidelines. 🙂
