student in libraryLibrarians at one college have come up with gobbledygook concerning gender identity, which one writer says is a ploy to suppress the arguments of opponents to the transgender movement.

Librarians at Simmons College have published an "Anti-Transmisia" guide designed to resist the "systemized discrimination or antagonism directed against transgender people." Laurie Higgins, a cultural issues writer for the Illinois Family Institute, says leftists insist debates must be restricted to the terms and language they have concocted.

"They get very frustrated with someone who won't comply with their language rules, [saying], 'I won't use newspeak,'" she tells OneNewsNow. "We need to feel comfortable saying, 'We reject your language. We don't have to use it. You're not in control of my language.'"

She points out that the left resorts to calling their opponents derogatory names, such as bigots and haters, when people refuse to play along with their linguistic schemes.

"We're never going to like being called hateful, or bigoted, or ignorant, or any of the other names that they use to silence dissent," Higgins submits. "But we should care more about speaking truth and about protecting children than we do about being called names."

The librarians have conducted similar work over the years, creating guides on topics such as using trigger warnings, privilege and intersectionality, and social justice.
