Along with others who disagree with the ban for the same reasons, I’ve been lumped in by Melhuish of striving to “debate the validity of trans lives” (uhm, no) belonging to the “freeze peach brigade” and by Payton Quinn of not caring about trans people - ad hominem at its baffling worst.

It’s this sort of conflation of free speech with entitlement to other unrelated aspects of communication that progressives like us call “Freeze Peach”.
