David Ziggy Greene's cartoons seek to represent a situation or debate and what people say, rather than making jokes, or putting a particular point of view. I'm glad he's taken on the transgender issue, but (naturally) I think he downplays the potential impact of transgender ideology/self-ID on women. Thoughts?

I think its OK. Its not supposed to be an in depth analysis of the situation, but a sketch of a (pretty absurd) moment.
I think it gives very brief examples of what the two sides present are saying and leaves it to the reader to make up their own mind. I don't think the TRAs come out of it well! ("Make the Terfs ugly" Hmm)

I disagree with the "two feminist factions fight it out" bit, because I don't see what so feminist about standing up for the right to punch women for voicing opinions you disagree with, but then the TRAs identify as feminist I suppose....

"two feminist factions fight it out"

I think that is one of the problems - it is seen as two opposing feminist groups, therefore not a real problem, or an internal struggle that feminism needs to sort out.

I'm convinced when politicians talk about trans rights they think they are ticking the 'keeping feminists onside' box.
