    There are fundamental biological differences between men and women.

While certainly true, the people who are obsessed with proving this tend to be incredibly sexist about 98% of the time. Especially if they make a big deal about psychological differences.

    Free speech is under siege. Identity politics is a toxic ideology that is tearing American society apart.

Maybe if you're trapped in academia, surrounded by particularly stupid liberals, but otherwise no. "My culture is not your prom dress" made headlines and memes because of how clearly stupid it was.

I've made politically incorrect gaffes in very politically correct left-leaning academic circles and felt everyone's stares bearing down on me. I felt kind of mortified. I said sorry, that was insensitive, and I learned something about my own instincts there. Surprisingly, society didn't collapse.
