Some (biological) males (sex) are women (gender). Fact. Problems arise when they pretend and demand to be treated identically to (biological) females (sex). While the day may come when a male (sex) may become a female (sex), for now, their ability to transform is limited to gender-bending.
There should be national support for gender benders freedom to escalate their demands, in return for the latter's acceptance of anyone else's freedom to tell them where to stuff them. Given what a tiny minority of total population transpeople represent - and these strident demands come from a minority of that small minority (plus their cisgender allies, of course) - if many people feel cowed into silence through fear of being scapegoated for their 'ignorance', well, they need to get educated. Learn the ropes and which way the wind is blowing, then argue the toss.
Cowardice, silence and self-censorship are all-too-common, where Islam is concerned. The fear of Allah has been instilled, largely due to war of terror ('war on terror') rhetoric that Western states have deployed against their own people - while still engaging in, supporting and facilitating violent actions in Muslim lands - leaving them fearful of incurring Muslims wrath.
'Rape gangs in the north of England could go unpunished for years', more because the authorities largely shared the contempt some (of these) Muslims shared for troubled white working class teenage girls.
Censorship, short of state prohibition of publication unless officially pre-approved, is mostly self-censorship. Through fear of state punishment, public vilification, social exclusion, deprivation of employment, etc. Or it was. Now, social media giants and their ilk, are able to censor the public sphere at will, insofar as their platforms dominate people's access to it.
Arguing – why bother? People who really want a (political) debate online can find sites that offer more opportunities than most social situations are likely to. Why open Spiked to comments if 'no one ever changes their mind through online quarrels'? In fact, when speech is free, as it is here, insults, abuse, vilification and trolling tend to lose their power to intimidate. The playing field is evened out, so to speak, more than it's likely to be offline. It's words v words; offline, there's always a punch in the face, a kick in the goolies or a headbut to worry about.
