The Infectious Myth - Silencing Libby Emmons

Libby Emmons is an award-winning playwright who was member of a theater group called the Puss Collective, but got ejected because of her views on transgender issues. This was not the first time she had addressed these issues, they were also part of her rather provocatively named play, “How to sell your gang rape baby for parts”. In that play, there was controversy, but not over transgender issues. Now, however it was different. Her response was to write about her experiences in Quillette, the Federalist and the Post Millenial. David and Libby talk about the schism between feminists and transgender activists in a world where progressives have perhaps too quickly sided with those who say that a man can become a woman (or vice-versa) simply by saying so. They talk about what Libby calls the ‘erasure’ of women, the invasion of women-only spaces by biological men calling themselves women, and the effects of chemical and surgical interventions on young children.
