At the top of the year I made it a goal for ’s Culture section to elevate the experiences of Indigenous/Native American people. This week, we finally did through some amazing, visually-stunning profiles.

"Anyone can make a movie...I hope my work can let people know that they can do whatever the hell they want." Fox Maxy is the two-spirit, Indigenous filmmaker you need to know ⤵️

It requires minimal critical thinking to realize that this frightening sounding organization will ultimately be interpreted by the general public as the entirety of trans people, an already widely detested minority population that our world now knows is even worse than imagined.

Her message communicates that that the critics lack compassion and forgiveness, that they act as a single body, censoring people with a belief system that is spreading to other nations, and threatening free thought.

I analyzed Adichie's brief statements on this matter because they are couched in language that sounds very reasonable, but is actually deceptive, a refreshing serving of rationality served to a cis public that already believes us to be insane and less human.

And then, she gaslit that group by claiming that her critics ideas are dangerous to the wonderfulness of human complexity, which is apparently represented in the transphobic stereotypes she and Rowling were sharing with the world.

It's disappointing and disturbing that Adichie chose not to hear sincere criticism, rather reduced a collective of individual critics into a faceless group of others who don't think for themselves.

It wasn't at all challenging for so many of us to see, because, as brilliant writers they both may be, in this area they happen to have boringly repeated ideas that we have heard before, for decades, from out-right bigots who know their disdain for trans life.

The assertion I just made about the nature of those beliefs is not accidentally too sure of itself. It is the assertion made by countless people in response to their decision to share ideas that we know are harmful stereotypes because we're not ignorant to the issue at hand.

She's specifically responding to the way that she and Rowling were held accountable for each /choosing/ to publicly share personally beliefs about trans people that are blatantly born of transphobic stereotypes, ignorance, and unconscious prejudice.

Her comments about such behavior might be worth discussing if she was talking about a more generalized lack of tolerance for diversity of reasonable opinion. But she's not talking about that.

In The Guardian, Adichie grouped critics of Rowling (and herself) into a singular, problematic political entity operating under an orthodoxy of censorship. This group has no forgiveness, no compassion, and crucifies its targets, thus sacrificing the wonderful complexity of life.

Video games did that for me as a teen and still do. My other home in another world.
