The next few weeks are going to be tough for socially isolated LGBT people. LGBT communities have come together in response to a virus before. This one won't beat us. LGBT orgs & charities across the UK are offering support & helping us to connect. We'll share links & resources
If you missed it, @TeamPrepster and @THTorguk held a Facebook live event on Friday on #COVID19 , living with #HIV, and LGBT health.

Il regime #cinese, oltre le #mascherine c'è di più

Dalla totale assenza di diritti #LGBT, al bando dei social network quali #Facebook o #Instagram, ai campi di concentramento per convertire i musulmani, la mancata #TEMPESTIVA e totale trasparenza sulla questione #SARSCoV2
un paese fortemente economicamente squilibrato, oltre che sotto molti altri punti di vista, e non pienamente democratico.
Il vero volto della #Cina di #XiJingPin. Segue la #Russia e molti altri paesi, che ad alcuni sembrano molto appetibili e/o invidiabili. Teniamoci stretta questa nostra #Italia con pregi e difetti, da continuare a correggere.

Está de moda hablar de transgénero, transexual, queer y de más.

Por eso, hay que saber quién fue #JohnMoney, un psicólogo que le dio entrada al mundo de la "ciencia" la idea que el sexo es cultural.

Con sus ideas, destruyó una familia y provocó el suicidio de los hijos.

John Money nació en Nueva Zelanda en 1921. Estudió #psicología y #educación en en la Universidad Victoria de Wellington, de donde se graduó en 1944.

Desde 1951 hasta su muerte fue profesor de pediatría y psicología médica en la Universidad Johns Hopkins.
Él desarrolló una teoría que para ese tiempo era bastante innovadora:

Que no existe nada en la naturaleza que determine que alguien es hombre o mujer. Todo es una construcción cultural, por lo que si una persona es criada como mujer u hombre, sin contar sus genitales, será tal.

1/ Human Rights Watch took funds from Saudi billionaire tied to the regime—after reporting his company's abuse of workers—and promised not to promote #LGBT rights with the grant. (Source: @theintercept.) Worst crisis to hit @hrw since its 1978 founding by my friend Bob Bernstein.
2/ HRW now admits that its chief @KenRoth himself solicited the donation from Sheikh Mohamed Bin Issa Al Jaber. Roth himself signed the agreement with the accused Saudi human rights abuser promising that HRW would not use the funds to promote LGBT rights.…
3/ @hrw: "In 2012, Human Rights Watch made a deeply regrettable decision to accept a donation that included conditions that the funds not be used to support HRW’s work on lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) rights in the Middle East and North Africa...."

Because the US often behaves as if it’s the centre of the universe (that unless it happens here it hasn’t happened), I would like to remind you of countries that have already had openly #LGBT heads of state:

I would also like to remind you that in many of those instances, those openly #LGBT heads of state are not progressive in their politics.
Much like with the discourse on “first woman president”: the US is also lagging behind many other countries that already have had female heads of state.

Thank you to the hundreds of people who turned out to rally last week at Kennedy Catholic High School in solidarity with the beloved #LGBT teachers who were forced to resign because they married their same-sex partners 💪🏼.⁣⁣
#LGBTQFamily #LGBTQProud #LGBTQof2020 #LGBT
Last weeks rally was a great show of support for the #LGBT community & proof that religion doesn’t have to be about looking down on queer people.⁣⁣
Many people have said to me “Of course there’s homophobia in the Catholic Church, there’s no point in protesting it.” But....
I refuse to let that continue. Religious institutions are run by people & people have the power to change. There is no reason that homophobia should be perpetuated in religious institutions. There is no reason that “being religious” & “being homophobic” should be interchangeable.

@selina_todd @The_TUC #MMNHateCrime

First up @SVPhillimore this talk will be published on @WeAreFairCop website

I am a lawyer and a disabled woman, I know self identification is a sick joke.

I don’t care if an angry incel insults my fuckability, but don’t post my personal details online.
@selina_todd @The_TUC @SVPhillimore @WeAreFairCop #MMNHateCrime

@SVPhillimore extreme racist speech is outside the scope of article 10 HRA.

Rule of law = applied freely and fairly to all.

Freedom of speech not being applied fairly - causing real fear.
@selina_todd @The_TUC @SVPhillimore @WeAreFairCop #MMNHateCrime

@SVPhillimore The Internet has provided a playground for abusers. Existing law is not fit for purpose and their has been capture of most of our institutions.

Around 5 years ago I first encountered the vitriolic attacks on #women asserting their right to politically self-organise from so-called trans-rights activists in a socialist group I associated with at the time. Having been active in radical left... /1
...politics for nearly 30 years I had never encountered such appallingly sectarian, dishonest & personal attacks on the left. My first reaction was to defend #women's self-organisation on the basis that we must also support #LGBT self-organisation so ensuring... /2
...that different oppressed groups each had space & representation to better challenge that oppression. For this I was denounced as #transphobic just as the #women had been for asserting their right to self-organise had been & I first encountered the mantra... /3

On Burns Night, my boyfriend and I had a really shit #homophobic incident in #Glasgow's southside. We were holding hands, and a guy walked passed us and called us a "pair of bent bastards". I challenged him, he repeated the phrase, I called 999.
For the next 26 mins, I stayed on th phone w/@PoliceScotland, my boyfriend filmed and th man continued to call us "bent bastards" "bent cunts" "fucking poofs" "pair of poofs", "it's not fucking right two men sleeping together" (limited but effective lexicon: he did not like gays)
He hated me. He told me that. He snarled at me, told me that I was against the law, that I was fucking disgusting, for the best part of 30mins. This man saw me as one thing he despised; not as a brother, or a son, or grandson, or a friend, or whatever.

Ada ungkapan lama “tak kenal maka kenalan dong, tak tahu maka cari tau dong, tak sayang maka sangat disayangkan”

gw mo bahas tentang @NdonBack3 @NdonBack4 #OpPedoHunt #OpChildSafety
Sejak era pilpres 2019 lalu, ada yang ga suka dengan akun @NdonBack3 sebagai pemburu #PedoLGBT #OpPedoHunt terutama pada #OpChildSafety entah apa yang apa. Ketidaksukaan mereka tanpa alasan yang jelas padahal mereka sesama oposisi.

kalo dari cebong lain lagi ceritanye
Entah apa yang melatarbelakangi ketidak sukaan itu shingga dibicarakan dalam grup Tele.... walau hanya sekilas tapi itu ga fair menurut gw. ini menyangkut temen seperjuangan yang sudah sejak lama selalu bersama menyuarakan ketidakbenaran rezim.

No chickening out or dodging, anonymous troll.

You're here to cherry pick Matthew 19; to use it against #LGBT ppl having marriage equality & to pretend that Jesus shares your prejudice.

And yes, Matt 10 is where JC says “Haven’t you read....
“...that at the beginning the Creator ‘made them male and female' & said, ‘For this reason a man will leave his father & mother & be united to his wife, & the 2 will become 2 flesh’

This is the verse that anti-gay Christians use to say Jesus...
...would have opposed letting gay people marry who they love. But there's a problem w/this argument.

Matt 19 is Jesus coming out against straight divorce - not gay marriage.

When #Oman’s Sultan Qaboos had died,I posted obit,mentioned he was longest-serving ruler in Arab world & one of world’s longest-ruling autocrats,that Oman was 1 of 2 Gulf countries that didn’t ban my 1st book, &told my family WhatsApp group that it was open secret that he was gay
Then I saw this obit h/t @thesailorsgirl and pondered what we should do about people in power who are known to be gay & never come out, whose power & wealth protect them from the horrendous homophobia & violence that so many in the region are subjected to…
Sultan Qaboos was longest-serving ruler in Arab world and one of the world’s longest-ruling autocrats. Imagine if someone that powerful and rich had come out? He did not use his power or wealth to decriminalize same-sex relations.

I didn't get it together to do a thread 📌📌📌 on what I did over the past decade so here's the capsule version: a ton of reporting--a few thousand articles, columns & series--of which I am really proud. I published 13 books, half of which won awards: so humbling & thrilling.
I covered the most exciting & inclusive Democratic Convention in history in my own city. There were more women, POC & #LGBT speakers than ever, as well as the 1st trans woman speaker & several #disabled speakers for the first woman nominee, #HillaryClinton. It was thrilling.
The most important thing I did in this decade, though, was survive. I survived a brutal rape near the beginning of the decade, two collapsed lungs, a pulmonary embolism, seven #cancer surgeries and a life-threatening bleed that paralyzed me a month after the DNC.

Young #lesbians are part of the reason I resist the trans ideology. As a lesbian who came out in the 80s I have seen trans activists co-opt our struggles and orgs while shaming & guilt-tripping young lesbians into accepting "lady-cock" or even pressuring them into transitioning.
There are worldwide issues with #lesbians being shamed and abused by trans ppl and I won't support #lesbophobia or an abusive ideology that denies the biological reality of sexed bodies and same-sex attraction.
Lesbians have been fighting for our spaces for decades. The assault on lesbian communities has only gotten worse.

1) We have just a couple days of 2019 left and my @Wire rooms look like a back seat full of tweens after a six hundred mile drive.
@wire 2) Since I'm over here working on my Careerist Scum™ merit badge I'm going to toss out a little hard won wisdom from the last decade of participating in various grassroots efforts.
@wire 3) If you run an anonymous presence and it's tightly bound to a brand that many use, there are two ways to do this. You can be persistent and low key, or you can do a couple hits and then vanish. Try to combine long term and high visibility gets you doxed.

How did the girl who loved flowers become the royal botanist? HERE'S A STORY.

#lgbt #webfic #weblit #vss

"I will not be crowned without you," said the future queen, "except..."

The girl who loved flowers approached the abandoned far tower from the parapet, unarmed. (1/8)
Its current tenant slithered out from under the door, bloomed monstrously in front of the girl.


(The old king's botanist loved his experiments.) (2/8)
"Love," said the soon-to-be royal botanist. "True love."

Dipping and ducking its bulbous pistil, the blossom growled.


"Don't put roots down in the capitol if you want the truth. Go literally anywhere but here." (3/8)

Another story, same characters! ALLYSHIP!

(tw: subtle homophobia mention)

#microfiction #twitterfic #wlw #lgbt #fiction

The girl who became the royal botanist and the girl who became queen had been friends since childhood. They knew each other as sisters did— (1/6)
—that is, they read each other as easily as a scholar reads a text in his field.

So that day, the future queen leaned in to whisper, "What's happening that has your face so hard?"

(For her shy friend who loved flowers was typically quick to grin, to giggle.) (2/6)
The girl who loved flowers told her.

"Ah," said the future queen. "Is that all?"

"Not all! Where I'm from, it's...incorrect."

"Not so here. You've seen it! Love is freer than the wind. Although my father used to say it was about as capricious—" (3/6)

Thread : pourquoi considérer que #Google n'est qu'un agrégateur de contenu est faux et dangereux pour la démocratie. #CiviTech
Récemment, nous nous sommes fait l'echos des victoires successives obtenues, modifiant en profondeur des algorithmes de recherche @GoogleFR, permettant ainsi au mot #lesbienne de ne plus être exclusivement associé à la pornographie.
@GoogleFR Ces modifications effectives en août 2019 pour le moteur de recherche textuel / en octobre 2019 pour le moteur de recherche vidéo, sont une immense avancée pour la représentation des #lesbiennes sur internet & constituent surtout une juste correction d'une erreur #algorithmique.

Mohon maaf, bukan maksud sy tdk memberi sumber/ jurnal kajian ilmiah tentang #LGBT

Anda-anda para pembela #LGBT tdk terima klo sy rangkumkan (simpulkan)?

Sy khawatir anda tdk mau baca.
Baca pun, anda apa paham?

Maaf-maaf cakap, bukan meremehkan. Tapi anda sok-sokan Ilmiah.
Ya sudah, mari kita coba beberapa... #LGBT

Emine Erdoğan hanımefendi "25 Kasım Kadına Yönelik Şiddetle Mücadele Günü"nde yapmış olduğu konuşmada kadınlara yönelik şiddeti önlemek için hükümetin hizmetlerini anlatmış.

Çok sağolsun. Çok büyük hizmetler.Elleri dert görmesin.

Ancak unuttuğu ufak tefek şeyler vardı.
Mesela 6284'nolu kanun ile 780 BİN erkeğin evden atılarak ailelerin geri dönülmez noktaya getirildiğini,
Bunun neticesinde on yIllar alacak bir dönüşümün sadece 10 seneye sığdırılarak 2008'de 99,663 olan #boşanma sayısını 2018'de 142,448' çıkardıklarını,
Aynı anda 2008'de 641.973 olan evlenme oranlarını da 2018'de 553,202'ye düşürdüklerini,
Evlenmenin zorlaşması ile Tek başına yaşayan insan sayısını 2006’da yüzde 6,1'dan 2018’de yüzde 16,1 çıkardıklarını,

I will reserve my takedown of Mayo Pete for a later date.
Just kidding. I'm ready.

In 2011, @PeteButtigieg won his mayoral election with only 10,991 votes.

In 2015, #PeteButtigieg won his mayoral re-election with just 8,515 votes.

Combined, that's under 20k votes for two local elections, but some think he can win the White House???
@PeteButtigieg Let's talk about @PeteButtigieg's sexuality.

We wouldn't even know his name if he weren't openly gay, yet Pete couldn't bother to come out as #LGBT until it was convenient—once SCOTUS made #MarriageEquality the law of the land.
