He’s not gonna take it, no, he’s not gonna take it.
Twister Sister frontman Dee Snider has had it with individuals “folding” to cancel tradition — weeks after he drew the ire of trans activists for agreeing with one other iconic rocker’s criticism about pushing gender ideology on children.

“There is a BIG distinction between educating acceptance and normalizing and even encouraging participation in a life-style that confuses younger youngsters into questioning their sexual identification as if some kind of recreation after which mother and father in some circumstances permit it,” Stanley tweeted.

“You know what? There was a time the place I ‘felt fairly’ too. Glad my mother and father didn’t soar to any rash conclusions! Well mentioned, @PaulStanleyDwell,” Snider tweeted.
The backlash was swift and led to the San Francisco Pride competition nixing Twisted Sister’s defiant smash hit, “We’re Not Gonna Take It,” as its official anthem and Snider’s scheduled efficiency.
“Ultimately SF Pride and Dee have mutually agreed to half methods,” the “heartbroken and offended” competition mentioned in a press release, which additionally described Stanley’s remarks as “transphobic.”

“Most importantly and above all else, I help these battling their sexual identification whereas enduring fixed hostility and people whose path leads them to reassignment surgical procedure. It’s arduous to fathom the form of conviction that one should really feel to take these steps.”
Snider took challenge along with his fellow rock star’s apology, saying, “he didn’t say something unsuitable. You know, and he took again his phrases, and I gained’t do it.
“I wasn’t kidding once I wrote, ‘We’re Not Gonna Take It.’ I wasn’t kidding. I’m that man and I’ll at all times be that man.”
