I wonder how long Europeans will put up with the nakedly totalitarian aims of the transgender movement and the control it increasingly exercises over their ability to speak freely.
Vassilis Tsiartas, widely considered to be one of the greatest Greek soccer stars of all time, was convicted last fall of “transphobic” social media posts objecting to the genital mutilation of children and given a 10-month suspended prison sentence and a 5,000 euro fine due to his “public incitement” of “violence or hatred for reasons of gender identity.” It is the first such conviction in Greece.
Kellie-Jay Keen, a mother of four and feminist dissident better known as “Posey Parker,” was threatened with arrest in the United Kingdom by the Sussex Police after speaking out against transgender ideology — the police informed her that she was under investigation for a hate crime because of “words or behavior to stir up hatred on the grounds of sexual orientation.”
Also in the United Kingdom, a British veteran was arrested during the summer … over a social media post condemning the transgender movement. “Someone has been caused anxiety based on your social media post. And that is why you’re being arrested,” police told him as they put him in handcuffs.
And now — you cannot make this up — a lesbian filmmaker and actress is under investigation in Norway on criminal hate speech charges because she stated that a man cannot be a lesbian. Tonje Gjevjon was told by authorities on November 17 that her comments about trans activist Christine Jentoft on Facebook — a biological male identifying as a female — were the reason she was being investigated. Jentoft claims to be a lesbian mother, with Gjevjon responding, “It’s just as impossible for men to become a lesbian as it is for men to become pregnant. Men are men regardless of their sexual fetishes.”
