Hey #furry friends! Let's talk about #pride, LGB, LGBT+ and adjacent groups.

In June 1970, Brenda Howard, a bisexual New Yorker, organized the first Pride, in response to the Stonewall raids in 1969.

Her purpose was to express the notion that she - and everyone - should (1/9)
be able to love who she/they want to. She believed that, as long as there is no harm, that no one has the right to persecute or judge another based on the nature of their love.

Recently, a #gay man was bullied out of a #Pride parade because he was wearing a t-shirt of an (2/9)
organization that specifically focuses on LGB rights and equality. This is really troubling and is just one example of a problem I've seen numerous times, not just as a #furry within the #furryfandom, but more widely.

You simply cannot pick and choose. Pride, by definition (3/9)

This is an examination of #COVID from a Biblical worldview. If you’re a Christian, I encourage you to think through these things scripturally. If you’re not, here’s an inside peek into how we approach this issue.
First, let’s set the stage. The foundational principle and the one truth you should take from all of this is the absolute sovereignty of God. He has decreed all of history before He made the world.
He is not reacting to anything. All things occur according to His good pleasure, for His own glory.

Today @twitter is opening our offices in SF and NYC. Our hearts go out to any tweeps around the world still unable to come back to an office, but this is a long awaited day for many.
It’s going to be different, both near term with COVID-protocols, and long term. We aren’t asking everyone to return. Ever. We will attract and retain the best people, enabling the most creative and productive work of their careers, whether on their sofa or in an office.
We will create new norms. Some of us are nervous extroverts or live in tight quarters without good focus space. Others will feel unshackled from meetings, urban areas, face time, or a century’s office norms, free to avoid a commute, small talk, or even traditional hours.

Not sure who needs to hear this, but:
On July 11 #SanDiego will host a #Pride march and
the theme is #Resiliency

Related: I've learned a person who harassed/threatened me in 2019- until a court issued a restraining order against him- will likely be part of this event.

It's "likely" because he's been hired by an LGBTQ advocacy organization

Their Exec Director was not aware he's had 3 restraining orders in the last 15 yrs: One for harassment, two for #domesticviolence

I often relive this abuse & harassment since it happened in my home

I had wanted to attend the march w/friends- But the more I thought of being in public, surrounded by others who have been traumatized in recent years, the less appealing it became.

As a survivor: It's hard feel safe or be "resilient" when an abuser is marching with me.

🏳️‍🌈 Ruth Coker Burks 🏳️‍🌈
“In 1984, when Burks was 25 & a young mother living in Arkansas, she would often visit a hospital to care for a friend who had cancer. During one visit, she noticed the nurses would draw straws, afraid to go into one room, its door sealed by a big red bag.
She asked why and the nurses told her the patient had Gay-Related Immune Deficiency (GRID), later known as AIDS. On a repeat visit, and seeing the big red bag on the door, Burks decided to disregard the warnings and sneaked into the room.
In the bed was a skeletal young man, who told her he wanted to see his mother before he died. She left the room and told the nurses, who said, "Honey, his mother’s not coming. He’s been here 6 weeks. Nobody’s coming”. Burks called his mother anyway, who refused to come visit her

Feliz Dia do Orgulho LGBTQIA+!!
#pride #orgulholgbt
Hoje é o Dia do Orgulho LGBTQIA+, elaborado durante os anos em referência à Rebelião de Stonewall de 1969. No acontecido, motins foram iniciados por gays, lésbicas, transsexuais e drag queens em protesto contra policiais que queriam fechar o bar Stonewall Inn, em Nova York.
Alegando "conduta imoral", os policiais defendiam a prisão dos clientes, e a partir disso, se organizaram protestos por todo o país. O protesto durou mais de 2 noites e gerou diversas mobilizações, incluindo o 1° soco dado em um policial pela ativista lésbica Stormé DeLarverie +

A @ONU publicou hoje (28) relatório sobre racismo em instituições de polícia e Justiça. De 7 casos, 2 são brasileiros. As mortes de João Pedro e Luana Barbosa são exemplos de como investigações e julgamentos não levam em conta o papel da discriminação racial nas instituições. (+)
Lembrando que Luana Barbosa era lésbica e foi espancada até a morte por policiais militares durante uma abordagem, em 2016, em Ribeirão Preto (SP). João Pedro Pinto, 14 anos, foi morto dentro de casa durante uma operação das polícias Federal e Civil em São Gonçalo (RJ) em 2020.
A ARTIGO 19 saúda a divulgação do relatório histórico. A defesa da liberdade de expressão, manifestação e acesso à informação só faz sentindo se conectada às lutas antirracista e contra LGBTfobias. (+)

There’s no #Pride in war profiteering! @HRC recently lauded weapons manufacturer @RaytheonTech for its commitment to “ensuring equal rights” for LGBTQ+ employees. While advocating for equal rights is great, using LGBTQ+ rights to pinkwash US crimes of war is not. 🧵
As then 2nd-largest weapons maker in the US, Raytheon supplies weapons to the Saudi-led coalition to use in the brutal war on Yemen. Despite its complicity in the "world's worst humanitarian crisis," Raytheon has gone to great lengths to ensure they continue to turn a profit 😠
I don't know about you, but a corporation that makes its money off the murder of innocent Yemenis should not be celebrated for anything– let alone its so-called “corporate social responsibility efforts.”…

Como ya he visto otra vez muchos mensajes del tipo "love is love", "nadie merece ser odiado/asesinado por amar" y todo lo que se derive de eso, vuelvo al tema, especialmente hoy.
¿Por qué no deberíamos usar el #AmorEsAmor como lema aunque la intención sea buena?
Va 🧵
Lo primero es que excluye el deseo en sí mismo. Los encuentros erótico-afectivos no solo pasan por el amor. Esto, de cierta manera, refuerza el estigma que pesa sobre “el deseo desviado” homosexual que solo se “valida” o “redime” a través de un sentimiento “noble” como el amor.
Lo segundo es que “love is love” excluye también a las personas trans cuya lucha política no pasa solo por los vínculos erótico-afectivos si no, sobre todo, por la identidad. En ese sentido, se convierte al “amor” en el centro de la lucha política desplazando otras prioridades.

Why do so many people feel the attraction, or love, for the same sex is so different and out of the norm, than for the opposite sex?

Because, for time immemorial we've been indoctrinated, therefore predisposed to believe that's so. But, homosexuality has been around
since time immemorial and that's never going to change, or go away, just because some people wish it so. So by punishing homosexuality, by withholding the rights that everyone should be allowed, equally,
we are only allowing the mistreatment, of millions of people in the world, to take place via an unfair & unreasonable bias.

When can the citizens of the world come to their sense of fairness and realize that equality is a basic human right. Equality without partiality. #LGBTQ

Dia 28 de junho é o Dia Internacional do Orgulho LGBTQIA + (Gays, Lésbicas, Bissexuais, Transexuais e Pessoas Intersexo), data que surgiu após Rebelião de Stonewall, quando marcou a revolta da comunidade LBGT contra uma série de invasões da polícia em um bar de Nova York. #pride Image
Em 2010, após a aprovação do Senado, a Argentina se tornou o primeiro país latino-americano a permitir homossexuais a se casarem e adotarem filhos. Depois de 14 horas de votação, os senadores aprovaram o projeto apoiado pela presidenta Cristina Kirchner por 33 votos contra 27. Image
Na última quinta-quinta (24), o Senado aprovou o projeto de lei que destina 1% das vagas de emprego nos cargos públicos para travestis, transexuais e transgêneros. Depois de passar pela Câmara dos Deputados, a lei foi aprovada por 55 votos a favor, 1 voto contra e 6 abstenções. Image

At #Pride some will lip-synch for their lives; others still have to fight for theirs. We’re proud to be alongside the #LGBT community to celebrate the progress that has been made and to call for the changes that still need to come. #LoveIsLove #LGBTRights #TransRights #LGBTQ

Moin, ich bin Karl (@KarlBeecken), ich bin bei FFF in Berlin und auf Bundesebene aktiv und kümmere mich da um Dinge wie Social Media und Technik – und ich bin schwul. 1/4 /karl
Schwul sein bedeutet, vereinfacht gesagt, dass ich mich als nicht-Frau sexuell und romantisch zu nicht-Frauen hingezogen fühle & dieses Gefühl Frauen gegenüber nicht empfinde. 2/4 /karl
Auch heute noch werden schwule Menschen in Teilen nicht als normale Mitglieder der Gesellschaft behandelt – das äußert sich z.B. in homophoben Kommentaren oder verwirrten bis angeekelten Blicken, wenn ich mit meinem Freund in der Öffentlichkeit Händchen halte. 3/4 /karl

Yesterday was the kind of day in #NYC that future generations will talk about, like the WWII V-Day celebrations. #pride is always a fun time here (except last year obviously). But this was like a collective sigh followed by a love filled wholesome celebration. And so chill!
Other days when the streets of Manhattan are filled, like NYE, Halloween, Thanksgiving, St. Pattys, etc, mostly chill but there will still be some little tensions and jostling and occasional curses and "I'M WALKIN' HERE"s

Never at #pride

Except from the police.
It's like some elements of the NYPD are keen to do a small historical reenactment every year of what started the Stonewall Riots in the first place - police unfairly and violently going after queer folk in the West Village.

It is such an act of petulance by them. Every year!

No tuviste que mentirle a tus padres.
No tienes que ocultar a tu pareja en el trabajo.
No te han marginado en el colegio.
No te han prohibido hablar de tus miedos.
No te han puesto trabas para casarte.
No eres un delincuente en algunas partes del mundo, solo por ser tú.

No te persiguen.
No sientes miedo por tu integridad delante de algunos grupos de gente.
No te preocupa que pongan en duda tu capacidad de criar a un hijo.
No te matan.
Enhorabuena, probablemente seas heterosexual, así que no digas que el #DíaDelOrgullo, el #Pride, no es necesario y que “¿para cuándo el día del orgullo hetero?”

Just a word about Christians, their OT Bible, and homosexuality...

Thousands of years ago, in a land, far, far away, a ridiculous book was written, that millions today love to quote, but never follow.

I was just watching a gay-themed short...
and there is a teacher, who is a holier-than-thou type, who stated: God chose Noah to build the ark because he was a righteous man, so he and his family could survive the flood. He then asked his class: Do you know why the animals on the ark are pairs of male and female?
His answer was: This is because after the flood, they could reproduce and give offspring.

People are no longer required to repopulate the earth, if some people want to believe these fables to be true. Therefore, in the 21st century, it is not necessary, nor is it required

Cops just deployed pepper spray on people at Washington Square Park.
Basic overview: People at the arch were agitating, barricade was moved to create more space for parkgoers. Cops inside the pen started forcefully shoving it back. A woman became agitated and shoved it back at them, prompting one latch to become unhooked.
When the one barricade became detached, a single cop shoved it extremely hard, causing it to slam into a woman. People went to the barricades to yell at the cops for not being careful and hurting a woman. It’s at this point NYPD deployed pepper spray.
