They discuss the ins and outs of the story, what we think of it, and why this is so ominous for free speech and women only spaces.Identity Crisis is a weekly column and podcast for young people struggling with the modern orthodoxy of gender identity ideology—developed in collaboration between Plebity and 4W by Sasha White and M.K.
