    Throwing “rednex” up against the wall to see if it sticks.

    Weren’t the woke progenitors spelling it womyn like 20 or maybe 30 years ago – was that problematic or transphobic?

    Oh, a little bit of duckduckgoing clears it up (sort of): `“Womyn,” according to the handout, is considered a white, liberal-feminist concept and, thus, the term “womxn” was created to broaden the scope of womanhood by including “womxn-of-color,” “trans-womxn” and other “womxn-identified” groups.`

    I guess it was my biased white blinders blinding me to the fact that ‘womyn’ clearly did not include women not of European dissent.

    Maybe “rednx” is better.

    It’s one of a kind. A “must listen.” Not just for content, but I LOVE his accent.
