For the first time in years, American Democrats break the taboo: they do so with none other than the authoritative voice of the former Secretary of State and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, according to whom continuing to talk about trans people will risk defeat for progressives.
The interview is published in the Financial Times. Question Edward Luce: "The Democrats seem to be doing everything to lose the election by holding up activist causes - in particular the transgender debate - which is only relevant to a small minority. What is the point of painting JK Rowling as a fascist?".
Clinton replies: "We are at great risk of losing democracy and everything that interests everyone else stays outside the window. The most important thing is to win the next election. The alternative is so frightening that everything that does not help you win should not be a priority'.
Hillary does not go directly into the matter, but sounds the alarm: either we change our tune -particularly the one orchestrated by the Biden-Harris duo, who keep trans issues high on their agenda-. or we crash. Ergo, it is time to change course. And if she says so, it is because the leadership of the US Democratic Party has instructed her to do so, believing that it is time to give a clear signal for a change of course. And he instructs Hillary to reassure the female electorate in particular: it is women who suffer the heaviest consequences of transactivist policies.
It may be that the turnaround will come late - although the clues from the liberal front are increasingly numerous, especially on the New York Times who recently published a self-critical editorial and is concerned about the epidemic of transitions among teenagers-, but it certainly is a turning point that will not remain without political consequences.
Probably Democrats tremble over the midterm November, and have given themselves a few months to get things back on track. It is theadmission of a strategic error, and finally of the understanding that the gender criticism is by no means in the minority and that there is growing intolerance.
In the hope that the progressive parties in the rest of the West, starting with Labour in England and the Italian PD 'either Zan or death' quickly tune in to the historical news.
