I am going to get personal, when I first found out about the fucked up things happening to lesbians I cried a lot. I was upset that we were being reduced to nothing but mere fetishists. I didn't know what to do, so I came to twitter.
It is very vile to be told that we can no longer be exclusively attracted to females by the same community that is supposed to represent us.
Today I came across the tweets of a lesbian that tried dating a trans woman, but couldn't do it. I was appalled that this woman felt that she had to justify why she couldn't sleep with a man.

Hillary went to Pulse instead of Wisconsin.

She chose to support #lgbt in a time of extreme distress and terror for us.

Stop whining that she missed a rally in Wisconsin because she comforted us.

Leaders comfort people who need it, when the need it.

Je lis pas mal de bêtises et mensonges sur un soit disant "pink washing" de la part d'#Israel. Je voudrais expliquer quelques vérités sur les #LGBT dans le pays, basées sur ma propre vie de papa gay en Israel.
Merci de partager ce thread: ⬇️ 🇮🇱🏳️‍🌈
(Oui, c'est moi sur la photo)
1. J'ai 2 enfants, nés de #GPA à l'étranger (la GPA est réservée aux hétéros en Israel). Dès la naissance les deux ont obtenu la nationalité israélienne.
2. Sur leur état-civil sont notés leurs deux pères, sans distinction biologique ou non ⬇️
(Non je ne suis pas sur la photo)
3. A l'inverse, 3 ans après leur naissance, je galère encore (le mot est faible) pour qu'elles obtiennent la nationalité française, sans parler de faire reconnaitre le conjoint comme père sur l'état-civil...
4. En #Israel nous avons eu congé paternité, réduction d'impôts etc.⬇️

We were talking about “Frontrunners” just last night...how gays all over the country titled running clubs, signaling to each other by using the “code” of “Frontrunners.”

Patricia Nell Warren made it possible for thousands of #lgbt people to find each other outside the bar scene.
Frontrunners the 1974 book was revolutionary.
Gay running clubs took off around the US and the world.
Folks could slide in, run, meet other queers, with little exposure and deeper cover than going to a gay bar.

RIP Patricia Nell Warren
Frontrunners 1984.

.@Alyssa_Milano makes a strong point about the connection between @realDonaldTrump 's #MAGA hats and KKK white hoods. It's a point that can't be ignored. (thread)
If MAGA hats are not analogous in many ways to the Klan's white hoods, why does former KKK grand wizard David Duke hold the #MAGA hat boy out as a symbol to rally around by having his picture on his Twitter header?

#resist #trump
If MAGA hats are not deeply connected to the KKK, why did David Duke say that he and @realDonaldTrump share the same message?

She's the perfect #GOP candidate, though.

Tulsi Gabbard ‘regrets’ past anti-gay activism as she prepares for presidential race.
rollcall.com/news/campaigns…
"As Democrats we should be representing the views of the people, not a small number of homosexual extremists."--#TulsiGabbard

Ten percent of the population are "homosexual extremists."
She's never withdrawn that statement nor apologized for it.
#TulsiGabard also opposed research on #LGBT youth, saying, "many parents would see the study as an indirect attempt by government to encourage young people to question their sexual orientation."

Like the #GOP claims sex education encourages them to have sex?

Tulsi is an Assad apologist homophobe who willingly and persistently fought AGAINST #LGBT PEOPLE with her father in a gay hate organization called “Stop Promoting Homosexuality”

Her ideology stems from her life long involvement with the cult “Science of Identity” #ChrisButler
Tulsi Gabbard has never renounced her guru #ChrisButler a homophobe and misogynist leader and in fact has praised him at an ISKCON gathering as late as 2016.
Here is Tulsi Gabbard singing Hare Krishna in 2016.

My series on poverty and hunger among #LGBT people?
Fewer than 500.

What can I do to get you to read and share these important investigative pieces?
This is a serious question, because the investigative work I am doing is crucial, the interviews I am doing are with people whose voices are often suppressed & the issues are ones that get little attention.

I realize this is a problem for many journalists, not just me, so....?
Last month I did a big piece on #lungcancer among women and another on #familicide. One got massive attention, the other, very little.

I am interested in feedback.
I know few people read articles, but we write them for you.
So--not abusively, please--let me know your thoughts.

Just a little reminder, that while the GRA consultation deadline has passed, Mumsnet transphobes are still lobbying their MP’s with anti-transgender rhetoric!😖

Decent people need to contact their MP to counteract this negativity.

Find your MP here ⤵️
theyworkforyou.com/mp/
I hear some people say “Oh, but my MP is anti-trans / lgbt” - In that case you DEFINITELY need to contact them to let them know that they have #trans / #LGBT voters in their constituency....You know the transphobes will be writing to them, so you need to counter their narrative!
“But what do I say to my MP about #trans equality?” is another thing people say...

@stonewalluk have some brilliant information here ⤵️
stonewall.org.uk/lgbt-britain-t…

And @TransActualUK has a fabulous twitter images you can use in emails / print out to leave with your MP 👍🏻

“To speak now...about the Bush admin’s lack of response to the AIDS crisis is not about dishonoring the man’s death, but about honoring the deaths of others who were equally beloved to their communities, but far from equal in power...”

By @thegarance
thecut.com/2018/12/george…
This excellent @thegarance piece features an embedded video of an @actupny protest outside of HW Bush’s vacation home in Kennebunkport, Maine.

It’s worth watching and brought back memories of a lot of similar protests I attended.

We were so young.

Many of us did not survive.
.@hilaryr says it well:

“This was our reality: We were kids and our friends were dying and the government was ignoring it because they were gay. He just didn’t lead at a time when we were desperate for leaders.”

We are excited to launch our network today! TRIUMPH is a @UKRI_news-funded #MentalHealth network that brings together young people, academics, health practitioners, and policy-makers to identify bold solutions to improve youth mental health. (THREAD 1/7 – continue reading 👇)
Many of the drivers of poor #MentalHealth sit at the broader social, environmental and cultural level and are affected by our relationships, and the settings & communities we live within. (2/7)
We believe that there's a different, solution-focused approach that seeks to understand young people’s strengths, assets & resiliences. Young people will be at the centre of the TRIUMPH Network. Read about network design ➡️ triumph.sphsu.gla.ac.uk/about-us/#desi… (3/7)

Short thread on how I got involved in #Activism - I have been an activist since I was 17 (1989) - I campaigned with EarthWatch Ireland about, 'The Greenhouse Effect' (now #ClimateChange) raw sewage / river pollution and recycling.
In 1994, I moved to London for work and joined @GreenpeaceUK as a volunteer working on #StopEsso campaign and #SaveorDelete an Ancient Forests campaign. In 2002, #Banksy worked with us to create a poster and I was in charge of sending them around the UK along with this stencil
First rule of stenciling - Don't have your name printed on it!

In honour of Trans Remembrance Day, a brief fact-check of a particularly inaccurate thread musing about trans people's problems as perhaps rooted in just their mental health problems.
Research on trans suicidality proves otherwise, instead showing that suicidality among trans people varies based on the life conditions many trans people are subjected to. #LGBT #canqueer
In this study, those who experienced transphobic physical or sexual violence were 7 x more likely to have attempted suicide within the past year

So, the other thread I was talking about at the beginning of the week and, sadly not about Vagrant Story or Farscape.

One of the questions I see pop-up again and again is why do TE*Fs (note the wildcard placement, there's nothing radical about these #Fuckwits) have such...

1/n
hatred for #trans #people?

Well, if we step back a little and change how we look at the patterns of behaviour, and look at those behaviours in a different paradigm, one more associated with personal relationships, TE*F behaviour and attitudes have a depressingly familiar...

pattern to them.

Alisa wrote an article for @TGC on why people are leaving Christianity.

She says it's because:
1. We are questioning the Bible
2. We have "unresolved" issues with why there's evil in the world.
3. We want morals that don't discriminate people.

Here's my thoughts...
1. Authority should be questioned. Bible included. It's a Frankenstein book. Research "Yahweh" and find the Bible wasn't always monotheistic. Think of all the robed men you'd have to trust 100% to write, edit, and pick the right writings while 100% certain the world is flat.
Discouraging people to question the authority of the Bible is insanely unhealthy. That's Spiritual Abuse. Total disregard for your logic.

Contradictions matter when you claim to be the sole authority of Truth in the Universe.
