Drag queen protester Wilson Gavin’s suicide exposes horrors of online abuse
The suicide of a young conservative activist just hours after he attracted a storm of online abuse for leading a protest against a drag queen reading event for children has supercharged debate over the use of social media as a weapon to attack political opponents.
Wilson Gavin, 21, was openly gay but vehemently committed to conservative causes such as the monarchy and opposition to same-sex marriage.
His suicide followed a barrage of social media abuse over his role in the protest at a Brisbane council library on Sunday.
As transgenderism is now the focus of sexuality activists, it will be informative to reread Patrick Byrne’s 2016 article discussing the Marxist foundation of gender theory.
Publicly the person who set up the Safe Schools Coalition program says it’s to stop bullying and suicides, but she told a Marxism conference it was part of a wider Marxist strategy to radically change society.
Roz Ward, from La Trobe University’s Australian Research Centre in Sex Health and Society, told the Melbourne 2015 Marxism Conference, “In 2010 … I was the person who set up Safe Schools Coalition in Victoria” (SSCV). This program has now been expanded to become the federally funded Safe Schools Coalition Australia (SSCA).
The public defence of the SSCA’s particular format has been that it’s necessary to stop bullying and reduce self-harm among LGBTI students and students claiming various sexual identities other than male or female.
Paul Joseph Watson has one of the most popular conservative youtube channels. So, it’s not really necessary to promote him. His short video, however, on the reaction that J.K. Rowling has copped from the seriously delusional left for stating there are two sexes is worth highlighting. This will give a big satisfying laugh for those still in possession of their reason and sanity.
Political prudence aims at ‘combining the principles of original justice with the infinite variety of human concerns.’
