“If LGBTQ rights are the preserve of the woke, does that mean real people aren’t gay?”

One of the downsides of not buying overtly transphobic newspapers is that I’m not supporting the work of good people such as Zoe Williams. Today’s column in the Guardian on the so-called war on woke is wise and witty:

…Social conservatism, a loose and elastic concept, can simply roam about, choosing fresh things to dislike. Yesterday it was trans people; today it’s footballers showing solidarity with Palestine; tomorrow it’ll be Michel Barnier.
