Threatening suicide is the tactic of an abuser
We must refuse to submit to the abusive gaslighting of the "trans rights" movement.
It is well-documented that people who commit domestic violence will often use suicide as a way to control their partners. An abused wife will stay in a violent relationship because she does not want to see her husband kill himself. Threats of suicide are very often not the result of depression, but as a way to control and manipulate someone else. UC Berkeley School of Law "Professor" Khiara Bridges has mastered this abusive tactic and put it on full display in front of the United States Senate a couple weeks ago.
When Senator Josh Hawley asked if "people with a capacity for pregnancy" are women, "Professor" Bridges told Senator Hawley that his "line of questioning is transphobic and it opens up trans people to violence by not recognizing them." She then added this: "I want to note that one out of five transgender persons have attempted suicide. Denying that trans people exist and pretending not to know that they exist is dangerous."
So here we have it. A law school "professor" is now embracing the same behavior of men who beat their wives so that she does not have to answer questions. She first accuses a United States Senator of causing hate crimes against trans people, and then tells him that trans people will kill themselves because he was asking questions at a Senate hearing. This is the state of modern higher education.
Hawley did not deny that trans people exist. That is a laughably ridiculous straw man, and a "law school professor" should know better than to use this logical fallacy. Of course there are people with gender dysphoria. But recognizing that biological reality exists and that only females have the ability to become pregnant is not the same as denying that trans people exist. If I claimed to be the Emperor of North America, refusing to agree with that claim or refusing to submit to my "divine authority" does not mean you are saying I do not exist.
This abusive behavior is common in the "trans rights" movement, but it is built on a lie in order to protect another lie. First, men cannot get pregnant. Only women can get pregnant, and to claim otherwise is a lie rooted in superstition and religious dogma. Second, stating biological facts does not cause people to commit suicide, nor does it cause people to commit violent crimes. People are responsible for their own actions.
Hawley was far too restrained and polite in the face of this abusive gaslighting. It is time to call out this behavior. "Professor" Bridges is not only trying to shut down the free exchange of ideas, she is trying to blackmail people into not asking questions. Authoritarians throughout history have always done this. If you disagree or even ask questions that makes them uncomfortable, they will try to silence you. It is a truly despicable tactic that must be exposed. This behavior will only stop when people stand up to it.
