Support Rachel Ivey!

I noticed this post going around which is yet another attempt at a smear campaign of a trans-critical feminist. Let’s band together and support Rachel Ivey and help her keep her speaking engagements. The relevant events/contact info are below. There is also a form letter for those who don’t want to or feel like writing out something on their own. If you live in a region where she is speaking and plan to attend an event in support, please feel free to add a sentence or two mentioning that in your letter!

Dear Madam or Sir, 

This letter is in resounding support of your choice in booking Rachel Ivey for a speaking engagement. It has come to my attention that there is a campaign meant to smear her name, and I would like to take a moment to advocate that you keep this booking.

You may be receiving form letters describing Ivey and Deep Green Resistance’s positions regarding the contemporary transgender movement and even Ivey’s personal connections to other well-known radical feminists. These declarations are simplified and meant to paint Ivey as a villain by relying on common stereotypes of radical feminists.

Criticism of the politics raised by the transgender movement is very different than a wholesale hatred of people who choose to transition. This nuance is very often missed by the very same people spamming your venue with blanket declarations of transphobia. 

I personally urge you to consider standing against censorship. Women with controversial and salient platforms most certainly have an eager audience awaiting them, despite contrary opinion. 

With regards,

[your name, friend!]
