It’s getting increasingly difficult and complex to be woke — or woke enough — in today’s social justice laden culture. Who’s the bad guy (or bad person) in an altercation between a transwoman and a woman wearing a hijab? A recent altercation between individuals in these two groups has social justice warriors scratching their heads in progressive Germany.
A recent altercation captured on video shows a transwoman attacking another woman – one wearing a hijab – has been making the rounds on social media. In this case, progressives should know what to do – unquestioningly support the person that would showcase how “woke” the left is…but it is hard to tell in this case. According to news channels in Berlin, the trans attacker is also a migrant, so each of these individuals tick quite a few of the typical victim boxes for progressives.
You can see the video on YouTube; it was added January 11th. Titled “Culture Fight in Berlin -Transwoman against Arab”, the clip was originally shared on Twitter with a trending hashtag. The “Kopftuch” means headscarf in German, according to the details shared by the uploader.
The video begins with a transwoman shouting at a hijab wearing Muslim woman. The hijab wearing woman is obviously trying to walk away from the yelling individual. The transwoman repeatedly attempts to remove the woman’s headscarf and chases her along the street, not deterred by her attempt to escape his attention.
The “transwoman” is clearly at the very beginning of a transformation and is a large biological male – he is much taller than the woman he is pursuing and far more muscular. The hijab-wearing woman repeatedly tries to get away, and eventually does, once other male bystanders intervened. The transwoman in question is very obviously larger and stronger than the victim — and holds her own against bystanders who attempt to intervene.
When male bystanders prevent the attacker from removing the woman’s hijab, a short fight ensues and the woman escapes. She is not seen again in the video.
The attacker is shouting in Arabic. According to Breitbart, language and religion expert David Berger states that the attacker sounds like they originally came from Palestine, Lebanon or Syria, based on their accent and use of language.
After a brief scuffle with the young men who stopped the hijab removal, the transwoman moves on – for a moment. A second altercation is captured moments later with the same group, and the woman is then seen yelling at the men from a nearby hair salon.
For progressives, the challenge is clear – is this an altercation between two women? Should men have intervened, and assaulted a transwoman? Who is in the wrong here, and who wins the court of public opinion? There’s no way to tell, based on Twitter and YouTube comments, which vary wildly.
