In honor of the #Callisto6 finale this weekend, I am going to be posting something I've been meaning to for the last 3-ish weeks or so.

I am running a vanilla 1.14 Minecraft server for the #SuperPunks (if you're interested give me a yell in the fan discord), and did something...
The something being 20-odd #PRIDE flags in the form of Minecraft Banners. Some disclaimers:

There's only so much detail that can be put into a given banner, and I only have so much skill. As much as I would have loved to have a Philly PRIDE banner, it's beyond my abilities atm.
Right now it's basically me and one other person from the #Superpunks/#AuxCrew Discord on the Minecraft server, but other fans are welcome to join.

The server is Whitelisted, and I will only be handing out the IP on the Discord/via IMs. Dragon is dead, and most pets are tamed

IJP is disappointed, but not surprised by the treatment of @caster800m and other Black and Brown intersex athletes. We release this statement in support of her and other athletes:
On behalf of the Intersex Justice Project, we are saddened and outraged by the decision of the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) which ruled that “DSD regulations are discriminatory but that, on the basis of the evidence submitted by the parties, such discrimination
is a necessary, reasonable and proportionate means of achieving the International Association of Athletics Federation (IAAF) aim of preserving the integrity of female athletics in the restricted events.”

Ok, so having had time to watch and reflect on the #callthemidwife episode featuring an #intersex character, here are my thoughts: (1/15)
Firstly this was really hard to watch. I cried as Lois was intimately examined in front of a host of strange men. This was a pretty accurate reflection of my experiences as a teen. (2/15)
I lost count of the number of times that numerous students were “coincidentally” present when I needed an intimate exam. (3/15)

Long #THREAD discussing questions:

💭 What is intersex?
💭Is ____ intersex?
Preface: everyone is different, this is of course one opinion. Also, while they are common themes among intersex people, medical trauma, non-consensual surgeries, or even a diagnosis are not requirements to ID as intersex, and we don't endorse gatekeeping.
What is or is not intersex is somewhat subjective. At its simplest, IDing as #intersex is about having experiences with your body's inherent sex differences, and if that word feels right to you.

So, I've waded through the Evangelical Alliance's new pastoral "guidelines" for interacting with trans people (ughh, the things I do to expose #transphobic #ciswits to the world), and let's just say it's time to tear this particular sh*t-bag a new hole.

So, straight off the bat, first page of text, the use of #language is . . . well, yeah, see for yourself:

"It is important to remember that transgender is not simply an issue to be debated;" - p5, #Transformed


When such language gets reinforced by insisting...

As an intersex AND queer person: it takes deliberation to talk about #intersex issues in a way that does not risk inadvertently throwing LGBTQ+ people, esp trans people, under the bus. We have a responsibility to calculate every word, esp "biological"... #thread
btw yes, I AM of the opinion that "I" firmly belongs in the LGBT+ acronym. Intersex medicalization born from homophobia shows parallels: intersex ppl falling on a spectrum of sex face violence & erasure for the same reasons as ppl who fall along a spectrum of gender, sexuality.
As #intersex knowledge slowly becomes more and more mainstream, I become more and more cautious about the language we move toward and away from. We must be deliberate so as not to exacerbate common arguments against our LGB and trans peers.

Contrary to popular belief, there really are more than two genders.Many people with sex chromosome variations don't know they have it, or find out later in life. Some are born with ambiguous genitals, and some look like one gender or another but their chromosomes are different.

So with all these #PrideMonth posts going on I'd thought I'd do a bit of a thread. So while I'm out there as much as I can be as a polya, gender fluid, pansexual, it's not me I'm worried about. It's my child. My 'son'
Now I was never really into the whole' gender your child' thing anyway when I was pregnant, I actually wrote a blog about it for @theparallelmag which is probably still floating in the ether somewhere
When he was born, before I'd had skin to skin, after an excruciatingly long back to back labour ending in an emergency c-section, they took him off to another room because they had a 'concern'.
