An Irony of Identity Politics

by Conor K Kianpour

“There is a rich irony brewing in our culture. On the one hand, people often feel uncomfortable weighing in on issues involving groups to which they do not belong. For example, a man might feel uncomfortable expressing his opinions about abortion, particularly while in groups populated by many women. On the other hand, people are often content to point out when members of groups to which they do not belong express treacherous opinions. It is not uncommon, for instance, for a man to reprimand a pro-life woman for setting back the interests of woman by defending her pro-life views. The cultural uptake of these two impulses is, I think, both contradictory and immoral.” (11/10/22)
