Princeton Marxists Protest Campus Appearance by ‘Trans Epidemic’ Speaker

In the ultimate exhibition of campus intersectionality, student communists at Princeton University connected their protest of an author they view as "transphobic" to their fight to end capitalism.

"LGBT oppression has a central role in maintaining the capitalism means of production," Princeton's Revolutionary Student Action group wrote in a letter plastered around campus ahead of a speech by Abigail Shrier, author of Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters. "The liberation of the working class IS liberation from gender oppression!"

The student flier argues that combating Shrier's book, billed as a deep dive into what she calls a "trans epidemic" in young girls, was part of their "fight for a socialist future."

Revolutionary Student Action is a student branch of Workers' Voice, an openly Marxist organization that believes "capitalism can only be overcome through a socialist revolution." Its website, which is linked on the Princeton flier, says the group's mission is to "pave the road to communism" and a "classless society free of exploitation and oppression."
