Da ja oft verbreitet wird, dass die Nazis 1920 das bis dahin übliche Geschlechterspektrum gewaltsam unterdrückten (s.u.), schauen wir uns doch mal an, woher diese Annahme kommt.


#Gender #Gendern #Transkids #Selbstbestimmungsgesetz
Als Referenz wird auf Nachfragen der Biologe und Sozialwissenschaftler (Queer Studies) Heinz-Jürgen Voß genannt.

Schauen wir uns doch mal an, was er gesagt hat:…

Wie man sieht, definiert er "Geschlecht" als eine Mischung aus Biologie, Kleidung, Gefühl

Daher gäbe es kein männlich und weiblich, sondern nur ein Spektrum. Er dekonstruiert also das biologische Geschlecht, indem er ihm alles mögliche beimischt.

Praktisch, oder?

04/28: I spoke to the @cityofwinnipeg supporting the SPIRIT of the "Corporate Advertising Policy.”

A randy night at the senior's centre has more teeth than this #policy.

It took #Winnipeg months to put "We prefer #kindness" in print.

This is long. A 🧵 …
(Actually, 3 🧵’s)
Watch -

Our elected officials are tone deaf to harm corporate #Winnipeg enables. Context is key to understanding and interrupting my presentation proved that.

Including #wpg22 for candidates. Please address this in your campaign.

I didn't get to finish my presentation. I’ll share my notes here.

Of the increasing number of initiatives setting out in recent years to challenge heteronormativity in education, the 2006-2009 No Outsiders project has arguably been one of the #MostInfluential
Conducted across 15 primary schools in England, #No Outsiders
Conducted across 15 primary schools in England, No Outsiders was an action research project that sought to disrupt heteronormativity through critical pedagogy, gaining widespread academic and media attention in the process
In spite of its prominence, though, there has been a lack of research exploring the ways in which #children have incorporated this work into their everyday understandings and doings of #gender and #sexuality.

Nachhaltige Mobilität hat positive Wirkungen auf Klima, Umwelt und Soziales im Einklang mit den nachhaltigen Entwicklungszielen (#SDGs) der #UnitedNations.

Doch was ist eigentlich soziale Mobiliät?

Gibt es einen Zusammenhang von Raum- und Geschlechterverhältnissen?

Soziale Mobilität ist, wenn sich alle in der Gesellschaft barriere- und diskriminierungsfrei fortbewegen können.
Um die Bedarfe der Nutzenden zu verstehen, müssen soziostrukturelle und persönliche Merkmale (z.B. #RadDerVielfalt) verstanden werden.

Therapist day: a 10 year old girl in Australia was put on puberty blockers. She is now 15 and on crutches. Not sure I like my job anymore 😳😳😳 #trans #gender #children #medicaltyranny
Obviously I can’t say much about this case, except that it’s true and it’s due to the puberty blockers 😬😬😬
Also to the therapist nazis, it’s none of your business

How did we get here? 🧵

Before 2019, #women and #trans people lived peacefully together in the UK. Everyone wanted to uphold the protected rights of people who are transgender.

Then #Stonewall were running out of money and lampooned society with a radical disinformation 1/10
campaign that threw everything up in the air.

#Stonewall took the vulnerable #transgender community and put a lighter under them.

Then once the fire had started, they batted down the hatches and said #NoDebate. /2
Not content with gaslighting the #trans community, #Stonewall started telling organisations that #gender identity was a protected characteristic in the Equality Act 2010 & if organisations want to be ranked higher in the Stonewall equality index they must parrot this falsehood /3

Ich finde es hochinteressant, wie "Diverse" dazu benutzt werden, Gefühle mit biologischem Geschlecht gleichzustellen.

Menschen mit biologischen Anomalien und daraus resultierenden Problemen dienen als Vehikel für Identitätspolitik.
#Selbstbestimmungsgesetz #NoSelfID #Gender
"Divers" wurde eingeführt, weil eine Person unter dem Turner-Syndrom leidet und somit weder in die Schublade "m" noch "w" passt (BVerfG BvR 2019/16…)

Das hat NICHTS mit "Ich wär so gerne eine Frau" zu tun!
Auch die im Gesetzentwurf der Grünen (…) als Begründung aufgeführte Entscheidung des BVerfG 115, 1, 15 (…) behandelt "nur", dass man sich nicht mehr scheiden lassen muss, wenn man sein Geschlecht ändern lassen will.

We need to talk about #gender.
So, there is a lot of stuff going around right now about identity, gender, presentation, sex and what it all means. Being unemployed and passionate about this topic, I have made a thread to explain. Having access to photoshop means pictures.
Many people have done this before me, but I feel like this will be the simplest way of explaining things.
Imagine a world where beings appear to be red or yellow. A variety of shades of this (magenta, scarlet, lemon, daffodil), but they are roughly able to be grouped.
About 1 in every 100 are orange, or amber or blood orange. These are told 'well you are red or yellow', and get pushed into one side or the other. It's a spectrum, but the world sees it as a binary.
This is how sex works.

Mit den Worten „Kommt bitte zahlreich!“ ruft die AfD-Splittergruppe „Bundesvereinigung Christen in der AfD“ zum Münchner „#MarschfürsLeben“ auf. Es gibt aus der #AfD selbst bislang keine Signale, dass sie sich am Marsch beteiligen. Trotzdem ein 🧵 zum Thema AfD & Abtreibung. !B Das Bild ist ein Foto vom Marsch für das Leben in Berlin 20
Die "Alternative für Deutschland" kann als ein parlamentarischer Arm der „Lebensschutz“-Bewegung bezeichnet werden. „Ein“ Arm, da die Unionsparteien beim Thema #Schwangerschaftsabbruch auch noch eine maßgebliche Rolle spielen, dazu aber an anderer Stelle mehr. Zurück zur AfD...
„Abtreibung ist (…) grundsätzlich Unrecht“ schreibt z. B. die bayerische AfD 2018 in ihr Wahlprogramm zur Landtagswahl. Neben ihren antiquierten Positionen zu #Gender, Geschlechterrollen oder ihrem Familienbegriff, richtet sich die Partei auch explizit gegen reproduktive Rechte.

Thank you @UNFPAPakistan for the honour of asking me to moderate the #WDD @SindhGovt1 seminar on the occasion of #IWD2022 titled
'Gender Equality Today for a Sustainable Tomorrow' @SyedaShehlaRaza @bayramgul_unfpa
It allowed me to point out some important work at policy level to mainstream #Gender issues, like #ccGap document by #IUCN Pakistan & @MoCC with @theGCF readiness support to work in tandem with National #ClimateChangePolicy by highlighting interventions in 6 priority sectors
Progress was narrated by #WDD rep. on #genderfriendly new laws, & amend. in existing laws is heartening. Look forward to their wide implementation. Also about measures about safety of women & safe houses like DarulAman @SyedaShehlaRaza @UNFPAPakistan @bayramgul_unfpa @SCSWPK

(1/10) ❗️Disclaimer❗️: Not an #intersectionality expert but care about #intersectionality & #healthequity. I want my research to reflect personal values. Below are just some of my musings on this ⬇️
(2/10) In my #epidemiology research, often constrained by what data is available to me...

e.g. forced to conflate #sex & #gender, treat gender as binary construct, collapse #ethnicity into meaningless categories etc. This is not good research! ☠️
(3/10) Most importantly, not doing justice to the people my research is aimed to serve. Want to change that.

Thread (weil mehrmals gelesen):
Hat uns der #Krieg gezeigt, dass wir zurück zu klassischen Geschlechterrollen müssen?
Die kurze Antwort: Nein, man kann eher sagen, weil wir klassische Geschlechterrollen haben, haben wir Krieg.
#feminismus #UkraineRussianWar

Lange Antwort: #Putin ist nicht als Präsident geboren, vielleicht noch nicht einmal als das Monster das er nun ist. Viele Menschen in -& außerhalb von Russland dachten ein russischer Präsident muss stark & hart (toxisch männlich) sein und haben ihn für seine „Stärke“ gewählt,
für seine Härte respektiert und schließlich den Abbau von Demokratie & die Menschenrechtsverletzungen für diese scheinbaren Führungsqualitäten toleriert. Noch vor ein paar Tagen haben einige gefordert man müsse versuchen Putin zu verstehen, ihm helfen sein Gesicht zu wahren.

📢 Scientists of the @IPCC_CH released their latest report today. #Climatechange is causing dangerous & widespread disruption, the report finds. #Gender features prominently and is mainstreamed throughout the report. Here are a few key takeaways:
Gender worsens the impact of #climatechange, making it harder for women & gender minorities to cope. But even among women, the impact won’t be uniform. Location, poverty, race/ethnicity, religion and age all compound an individual’s vulnerability to #climatechange
This means women and gender minorities who are poorer with limited access to resources, those from marginalized communities and elderly women will be hit harder. Some of this I’ve unpacked in my previous reporting.…

Good morning! In about 10 minutes, we will be expanding on our discussion of Individual Causes of Delinquency by looking at #gender & #delinquency

I look forward to your questions & following along. How do you identify?

#CRJ107 #MoraineValley
The term #gender is complex, so what elements of delinquency are we going to examine in this discussion?

We are going to try to answer the question as to why gender differences are significant in the study of delinquency

#CRJ107 #MoraineValley Image
I think it is essential to acknowledge that gender identity is much more complex than differences between male & female offending

#SupremeCourt holds condition imposing gender cap on Orchestra Bars in Maharashtra allowing them to keep only four women singers/artists and four male singers/artists on stage to be void.
A bench of Justices KM Joseph and S Ravindra Bhat held that the said restriction directly transgressed Article 15 (1) and Article 19 (1) (g) of the Constitution of India.
"While the overall limit of performers in any given performance cannot exceed eight, the composition (i.e., all female, majority female or male, or vice versa) can be of any combination", held the bench.
