Using misogyny as a weapon against growing children is harmful,” noted one critic.

“Freedom of expression?” a third opined. “I don’t like what she said, but trying to get fired for a tweet?”
“We crush the cuteness of children and anyone born male and then wonder why they are lovers, parents, friends, etc. so harsh, all because of an imaginary gender binary that serves no one.”
