I held another Twitter/X space on Wednesday, this time with some of the most important people in the ‘gender critical’ world. Direct democracy initiatives are a vital way to alter political calculations around ‘trans’ issues. These are the people making it happen.
Erin Friday, co-founder of Protect Kids California (Twitter/X) and mother of a detransitioner, joined us first to explain how any California resident can add their signature from anywhere in the world to their ballot initiative. Also, any American can help with the expenses of legal wrangling with the California attorney general, who has tried to poison the initiative with activist language. Her battle to just get the Ballot initiative 23-0027, the Protect Kids of California Act of 2024, on the actual ballot in some coherent form is the most important part of the entire war. Polling shows that Californians will vote for it, if they ever get to have an informed vote.
We were also joined by Jonathan Zachreson, Jennifer McWilliams, and Courage is a Habit. There was a broad-ranging discussion of the amygdala, cult reprogramming and deprogramming, SEL education, and the tips and tricks for gathering ballot signatures in California. I am following up on this angle and will have more to say about it soon. Parents have had quite enough of the state doing cult indoctrination of their kids. They are mad, they are right to be mad, and now they are getting organized.
