"As Thunberg approached America, she was followed by a tsunami of male rage. On her first day of sailing, a multi-millionaire Brexit activist tweeted that he wished a freak accident would destroy her boat. A conservative Australian columnist called her a 'deeply disturbed messiah of the global warming movement,' while the British far-right activist David Vance attacked the 'sheer petulance of this arrogant child.'
"In the U.S., former Trump staffer Steve Milloy recently called Thunberg a 'teenage puppet,' and claimed that 'the world laughs at this Greta charade,' while a widely shared far-right meme showed Trump tipping The Statue of Liberty to crush her boat."
If you care about Greta, a tiny 16-year-old girl, and her cause, you need to read this article in The New Republic: The Misogyny of Climate Deniers. Based on a growing body of research linking gender reactionaries to climate-denialism, these new findings come on top of evidence that supports a link between climate deniers and the anti-feminist far-right.
It paints an ugly picture of some men who are at first misogynists who can't handle change in any shape or form if they perceive it as an attack on their masculinity and position in a world where they see themselves at the top and are making all the decisions.
So, G.A.Ls for Gaia, know your enemies and carry on by standing up for Gaia. And Greta.
