FARTs claim to fight for #trans men as well. So, are they suddenly back off from their ideology, that all men are rapists and oppressors? Awesome! No? Oh.

Right. Of course they don’t because they beliefe that you being born with a penis makes you inherently violent.
That’s why they hate trans women so much. FART rhethorics breaks down to the idea that penetrating someone with a penis is rapy, which is of course not true. This is pure misandry and transmisogyny.
FARTs claiming that they fight for trans men as well is nothing more than misgendering. Because they see trans men and mspecs as women and not as the gender they truly are. They reduce those people to their agab.

#Transgenderism reinforces gender-construct limitations, instead of challenging & deconstructing them, we solidify them by altering our gender to conform within the constructs, rather than altering, expanding, the constructs themselves
#trans "gender affirmation" is thought reform, where ideology is replacing biological, scientific realisms

where it's technocratic (the reassignment method) = tech replacing nature

it's probably the beginning of #transhumanism, where the method of bio-hacking is being perfected
this #transgender fad is a novel, *social movement* along with other things lately (Covid-pandemic is a political movement);
societal disruption where things seem similar to political phenomena we're familiar with, however, phenomena takes on a novel form where #tech is forefront

#Breaking: Texas CPS has ruled out child abuse in the case of the Briggles, one of three families under state investigation for allowing their trans child to access gender-affirming care.

Info provided in court hearing today.

Background:… #txlege
Several other investigations into the families of transgender children remain active, @LambdaLegal lawyer states in court.

Some families were contacted just within last few days. #txlege
@LambdaLegal Judge asks state's attorney whether investigations into gender affirming care are unique in that CPS investigators were forced to pursue these cases?

State says it has no evidence to prove either way bc investigations were put on hold once suit filed. #txlege

I don't care if a TW wants to put a sanitary towel in their underwear.
I do care about the opportunities being taken from biological women.  I care about the ignorance associated with periods the ignorance and stigma still associated.
TW advertising sanitary products when they've never experienced the difficulties associated with menstruation is offensive to biological women. Growing up, I wasn't allowed to say the word, 'period', I had to call it my 'thing'. 
I also had to refer to sanitary products as 'things'. It was shameful thing to have a period. Dirty. My sister was 8 when she started her periods and was shamed and BLAMED for starting her periods so young.

Yesterday, as I got into my car, a coworker called out to me to wait a moment. He approached, my window down, and what I heard him ask was not what I was expecting.

"Hey, I just wanted to ask..what pronouns do you prefer?"

I told him I don't really do that, which he repeated, accepted, and wished me a good night.

I'm not angry with him. I'm angry with the systematic breakdown of gender non conformity into regimented, socially commodified rules that negate the very spirit of GNC
People will tell you that trans and "non binary" people have existed for millennia. This is false. GNC people have existed for millennia. Homosexuals have existed for millennia. But there was not one trans person until a medical and/or psychological professional made it so

A l'occasion de la journée mondiale contre la #transphobie j'en profite pour faire un retour "environnemental" (et non politique) sur l'apparition de ce phénomène de société, qui n'existait pas plus fréquemment que les cas de "femmes à barbe" voici un siècle.
Mettons de côté les arrières-pensées politiques des 1% les plus riches qui utilisent ces questions ("le sociétal contre le social"), dans l'ensemble du monde occidental, afin de fragmenter les populations victimes de leur politique (progressistes contre conservateurs) .
La question du développement du phénomène #Trans et #LGBTQA pose la question des facteurs environnementaux qui peuvent expliquer l'apparition de ces phénomène de société (encore une fois en mettant de cotés l'aspect "regulation anti-sociale" du phénomène).

Thread #2 below about the @cityofwinnipeg “Corporate Advertising Policy.” A 🧵, the story.

See the start of the first thread here:

#wpg22 #wpgpoli #mbpoli
3.2.e: "Only appear in reputable publications." How is it defined? Opinions: not part of #diversity & inclusion. Reputable is an opinion.

Ex: @energy106fm affirmed values & visions to be “one of the strongest media allies to the #LGBTQ community."

#wpg22 #wpgpoli #mbpoli 24/2🧵
Before that, #Energy hired Dave Wheeler, a host released from his last radio position. The release was due to #transphobic #comments after receiving suspensions for racist comments.

Does @cityofwinnipeg define @energy106fm as reputable?

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.

#wpgpoli #mbpoli 02/1🧵
@ShawnNason moved, @KevinKleinwpg seconded.


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

(Could have finished in ~9 mins, in full, with all relevant context 🤷🏼‍♀️)

Here are a few things supporters of Missouri's HB 2649, a bill to ban #healthcare for #trans youth, said in today's committee hearing. 🧵
It's a bill to "save children who are struggling to become comfortable w their biological sex."

As my trans teen listening said, they didn't struggle with that. They knew their sex & gender didn’t match. The struggle was getting other people to recognize & affirm their gender.
The bill “author” claimed to have hard evidence that teens are starting hormones after one visit with a therapist and that young kids are having surgeries.

Many will look at a #transgender woman’s face and height (which doesn’t change with feminising hormones) and think ‘it’s unfair’. That is an assumption. A stereotype and not based on any science. Let’s go through what the science does show... 👩‍🔬
Note that being #trans is not a choice, and whilst complex, gender is influenced in part by innate factors such as genes 🧬. Only ~0.5% of people in the population are trans, and only 1/3 of those are #transwomen.
A #transwoman who has had puberty blockers as a teenager and never been through male puberty, has the physiology of a woman. 🙋What about trans women who transition later after puberty❓

Just so you feel the vibes of things in #Texas right now for #trans folk, I interviewed the mother of a nonbinary adolescent this week. The kid's teacher, in front of the whole class, announced that the reason they're trans is because they've been groomed by their queer parents.
I've got more this week in the @AustinChronicle, but let's be clear that Alex Jones, MTG, #LibsOfTikTok and every one else spreading the "groomer" meme is responsible for real harm, for creating a climate of fear, anxiety & violence for #LGBTQIA people in Texas & elsewhere.
Here's my article about the how Texas is becoming increasingly hostile to #trans people, especially trans kids, including my interview with the family from my tweet. Big thanks to @AustinChronicle for supporting my work. #LGBTQIA #ProtectTransKids…

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

Good morning! It’s #TDOV22 #TDOV2022 #TDOV and I’m in #Berlin, researching the Institut für Sexualwissenschaft, (Institute of Sexology/Sexual Science) that operated from 1918-1933. My next book is about its support of #trans lives. See my @sciam article:…
2/ One thing I’m critically aware of is just how much of my research doesn’t feel like #history: progressive movement for inclusivity and understanding undermined by conservative, right wing (nationalist, later fascist) attacks to ‘protect’ by criminalizing LBGTQ #TDOV #TDOV2022
3/ Nazis attacked the Institute in 1933, burning the library in the famous book burn. But the attack didn’t start there. It started years earlier, by the slow creep of hatred, fear mongering—AND LEGISLATION. We can’t let it happen again. #TDOV #TDOV2022…

With all the talk about #TurningRed, I think it's worth noting that @fyre_flye was doing pioneering work in girl-centric properties with diverse female casts way back in 2010, and she deserves major kudos for advancing the state of feminism in kids'/"family" animation.
My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic is, was, and will be a feminist work, and all the dudebros who are bothered by that can die mad about it.

Seeing so many diverse ways of "how to be a girl" also encouraged countless #trans fems to come out and live as their true selves.
I was a fan ever since I read this piece by her so many eventful years ago.…

ICYMI, yesterday I was in Twitter Jail for 12 hrs for cussing out the Chair of WPATH's Child & Adolescent Committee for basically saying "we need to hear out the concerns of Gender Crit trolls".


a) the fuck we do NOT
b) what the actual FUCK
This dangerous person's name is @DrLauraEL, and she absolutely needs to be raked over the metaphorical coals for endorsing a group who link to ghouls pushing for targeting "100% desistance".

As in, "Let's make sure that NO #trans kid transitions."

Transphobes claim to care about detransitioners, but here is the sad reality of it: Transphobes USE detransitioners as political tools to attempt to harm #trans people, including literal children.

They don't actually care.

Transphobes "care" about detransitioners like fundamentalist Christians "care" about "ex-gay" people: that is to say, not at all.

The only thing stopping America from massive protests against all the horrible things going on in America is...

Specifically, Americans' apathy, Americans' lack of willingness to stand up and say "NOT IN MY NAME".

We should never have stopped protesting for #BlackLivesMatter, to #DefundThePolice, because the police are STILL monsters and Black people are STILL being treated as subhuman in America.

We should still be in the streets for that ALONE.
AND the attempt at destroying a generation of #trans youth in Texas, Alabama, Missouri... literally MORE THAN HALF of all states.

Across an estimated TWO HUNDRED AND EIGHTY hateful bills.

@bludelb @albinokid @wcruz73 @ianaIexander @TigNotaro @GeorgeTakei Hello, amazing people. As a #trans woman and a lifelong Trekkie, I have a humble plea: Much like the old #TrekAgainstTrump effort, might there not be a place for a group effort against transphobic legislation?
There are 280 anti-trans bills projected to be considered in 2022 alone. It's terrifying, and unfortunately it very much feels like us trans folks are going this alone.

I believe the Trek community stands for inclusion & compassion. Can something be done?
also CC @johndelancie @SirPatStew @levarburton @WhoopiGoldberg @JeriLRyan @StarTrekRoom @RodRoddenberry @BryanFuller, in case any of y'all might be interested in such efforts.

Many of us in the #trans community are terrified for trans kids. They need lots of help this year. :(

I'll be livetweeting as much as I can from this hearing, in which @ACLUTx and @LambdaLegal are suing to #ProtectTransKids in #Texas.
ACLU/LL is thanking the judge and asking the court to block @GovAbbott from his unconstitutional attack on #trans kids, their families and medically necessary gender-affirming care. #ProtectTransKids #Texas
@GovAbbott Abbott's directive is traumatizing families & youth, blocking kids from medically-necessary care, and putting mandatory reporters in a bind as they try to decide between trans kids and civil or criminal penalties for protecting them. #ProtectTransKids

Follow me today for coverage of the lawsuit seeking to block CPS investigations of families providing transition care for their trans kids.

I’m also @TexasDFPS this morning for it’s board meeting. Lots of people here.

Background here:… #txlege #lgbtq
FYI there will be no live stream of this, the first open DFPS meeting since the state began targeting trans care as abuse.

Also there’s no public WiFi in the building so my tweets may be sporadic as I’ll be using my phone.

More background:… #txlege
There are close to 100 people here (minus press).

The agency will give a bunch of updates on operations, and then the commissioner is scheduled to speak, before public comment will open.

There’s no livestream so follow me for updates. #txlege #lgbtq

Here's a little recap of what's going on in #Texas with the fight for #trans rights. There's a lot happening so this is a thread. 🧵

@AustinChronicle has me writing about #trans rights. It's important to me. And should be to you also.…

@AustinChronicle The Texas legislature won't be back in session until 2023, and since the state failed to pass a law targeting #trans health care in 2021, that means going around the normal legislative procedure to target trans kids & their families.…
@AustinChronicle Persecuting #trans kids is a major issue for several far-right candidates and the Texax GOP and their wealthy backers, as a whole. So Attorney Gen. Ken Paxton issued a non-binding legal opinion saying trans health care is abuse.…
