Measured solely by the number of public positions taken against “gender ideology,” “political correctness,” and “sexo-Marxism,” Romania may look like an egalitarian paradise that managed to erase any difference or discrimination. But the terrifying reality is that over the past year an explicitly fascist-populist party was elected to the Parliament under the leadership of violently misogynistic, homo- and trans-phobic, racist, and conspiracy-driven characters. If we are to ensure that the history that played itself first as tragedy stays at the level of farce the second time around, we must first understand it and then dismantle it with intelligence and humane humor. A meeting with some home-grown sexo-Marxists.
