Summer Ep2: SK Life in Gen Z Gender Land: an interview with a teenage critical thinker

Summer Ep2: SK Life in Gen Z Gender Land: an interview with a teenage critical thinker

My guest in this episode is Amy, a fifteen year old girl who writes and speaks publicly about her experience as someone who doesn’t subscribe to gender identity ideology. We are in an era where it’s practically social suicide in her age group, particularly in the LGBT community, to disagree with ideas like “trans women are women,” or that being same-sex attracted is problematic because it’s considered transphobic. Amy is a lesbian and she’s faced online threats and harassment just for speaking out about her views on these issues. After following her on Twitter, and seeing her intelligent and insightful comments, I reached out to Amy and asked if she would be willing to speak with me.

Introducing Identity Crisis: A 4W and Plebity Collaboration

Introducing Identity Crisis: A 4W and Plebity Collaboration

Identity Crisis: Advice for Gender Critical Teens and Twenty-somethings A 4W and Plebity Collaboration featuring M. K. Fain and Sasha White --- Today’s teenagers are pressured to agree with all aspects of gender identity ideology, or else risk major social backlash. While some teens take up the mantle with enthusiasm or go along uncritically, a growing number of young people are left with unanswered questions, and at a loss for how to begin to answer them. For trans-identified or detransitioned/detransitioning, lesbian, gay, or bisexual teens, navigating the new gender ideology within their community can be a minefield, fraught with potential social missteps. For any young adult who is critical of or questioning “gender identity”, stepping out of line with the liberal feminist mainstream can feel like a major risk. If you fall into one of these categories, you may feel alone and isolated with no one to turn to for support. “Identity Crisis”  is a new weekly column and podcast for young people struggling with the modern orthodoxy of gender identity ideology—developed in collaboration between Plebity and 4W by women who have been there.  Whether you have questions about your own understanding of gender and feminism, looking to support a friend, or struggling with fear of getting “cancelled”—Sasha White (Plebity) and M. K. Fain (4W) are teaming up to provide guidance on how to navigate these situations in a healthy and productive way.  Sasha and M. K. are both women in their twenties who have experienced extreme pushback on their gender critical views. We were both fired from our unrelated jobs and #cancelled for our online critique of liberal concepts like “nonbinary” identities and “neo-pronouns.”. But, thanks to the backlash, we’ve also met many young people who reached out to us in search of connection and guidance. We have heard from teenagers and young adults who feel alone, isolated, and utterly lost amidst the pressure to agree with statements like “transwomen are women” in their schools, social groups, and even workplaces. Navigating these situations is hard, and yet so many young people today are faced with the same dilemmas. We have created this space to provide concrete advice, guidance, and support to teens and young adults based on our own experiences.  Each week, we will answer one or two of your questions, both as a running column on 4W, and in the form of a video podcast on YouTube. To submit a question, email us at: submit@identitycrisis.xyz. We may publish your question in full, so be sure to leave out or change any identifying details if you would like to remain anonymous. Or specify that your question is private and you would rather we discuss it in a general way. We hope to hear from you soon!
