The interview below touches upon the situation in Australia, particularly in Victoria, where laws related to sex self-identification, conversion therapy bans, and potential hate speech laws on gender identity are discussed. Lawford Smith highlights the concern that these laws could threaten gender-critical speech.
She points out the unique situation where a marginalized group’s protection is said to depend on a lie, referring to the insistence on affirming gender identity. She compares this to historical instances where certain metaphysical beliefs were forced onto populations.
