This week Beth and Andrew speak with journalist and author Lisa Selin Davis, who shares how she, as a self-described liberal, started being interested in writing about gender and social justice ideology. We talk about her recent expose in The Free Press, “How Therapists Became Social Justice Warriors” and Davis shares her research on how the fields of psychology and psychiatry have been co-opted by critical social justice, and the role that feminization has played in these trends.

Davis also talks about how her NY Times op-ed, “My daughter is not transgender: She’s a Tomboy” led to her prominent writing about the rise of transgenderism. We also discuss the state of the hyper-polarized media and the deterioration of journalist integrity in recent years.

Lisa Selin Davis is the author of the nonfiction books TOMBOY: The Surprising History and Future of Girls Who Dare to Be Different, and the forthcoming HOUSEWIFE: Why Women Still Do It All (and What to Do Instead). She writes the Substack newsletter BROADview, and is at work on a book about the youth gender culture war.

    Feminist ideology is stagnant. Now she can still be a doctor, but also like needs to get into your subconscious and make sure you don’t want to see her as a sex object, unless she does, in which case it’s ok, or maybe it’s still not, there’s never any correct answer or end state of how things should be, as it’s not about what this ideology “wants”; in the end the process of complaining about things is the entire point.

    No wonder trans is the only innovation of feminism in two generations! You needed men in skirts to inject anything new into this ideology.
