Why do all therapists need to know how to talk respectfully about sexuality and gender identity? I was interviewed for a podcast for the first time and was asked this question, but I found myself tripping over my words! So here goes #TherapistsConnect 1/
Firstly, #therapy research shows that #LGBTQ plus and other Gender, Sex and Relationship Diverse (GSRD) people tend to self-censor in therapy and assume that talking about sexuality and gender identity is "off limits". Why is this? 2/
Well, #LGBTQ plus people grow up surrounded by #homophobia, #biphobia and #transphobia (yes, it still exists folks, both in the UK and in other contexts). Most of us internalise it to some extent, and many learn to protect ourselves by staying quiet about "being different". 3/

Australian sex buyers are having a normal one, casually discussing the mass sexual exploitation of Asian women and poor foreign students, as well as how to get away with raping children. All on legal websites. But hey, "customers" like any other - right? internationalsexguide.nl/forum/showthre…
Also, sex buyers looooove what the #sexwork movement is doing. If they're loving you, you're not in the business of putting power into the hands of the seller. You can bet on that. Deregulation which is the current trend down under mostly benefits buyers & pimps and they know it.
Amazing that being pro #prostitution is cast as the anti-racist position when sex buyers are out there talking like this 👇 Women are not cuisines. And, duh, sex buyers know the women wouldn't touch them if they didn't desperately need money. Sex buying is classist violence too.

1/6 Having explicitly stated in my resignation letter to @TheVeganSociety that I would only respond to emails from the CEO, I consider today's email from a trustee to be a continuation of a campaign of abuse and harassment in which they are complicit.
vegan4themany.com/who/robb-maste…
2/6 From that same resignation letter and my previous tweets (which they have demonstrated are being monitored) trustees of @TheVeganSociety know the impact this campaign has had on my mental health, and their disregard for my wellbeing is a blatant breach of their duty of care.
3/6 Having ousted six trustees, it seems current trustees and their allies are determined to continue punishing such former colleagues for the "crime" of suggesting that @TheVeganSociety shouldn't be racist, and that tolerating racism isn't be the best way to grow the movement.

It was a planned verbal assault by a pro-Tory gang on 'Labour' that didn't mention the Vote Leave #Islamaphobia that caused Jo's death

This will seem like a very odd decision for anyone familiar with LGB Alliance's social media profile. Taking a first glance at @ChtyCommission's reasoning here's what strikes me as key. Others may have more insight...
Firstly, it seems that much of LGB Alliance's historic social media output runs directly contrary to some their started charitable aims, notably the fact that they spend a lot of time denying and denigrating #bisexuality. Thread: .
This ought to have been a red flag for the @ChtyCommission as in section 41, they specifically commented on whether or not the LGB Alliance was a "sham" and, in section 42, concluded that there was "no evidence".

This begs the question: what evidence do they need, exactly?

11 to 14 March and despite it covering one day more than its predecessor, seems to be significantly less trans in the news. Amazon and LGBT advisors making waves. Also Biden and Biden backlash.

8 to 10 March. And this update is a biggie! Not entirely for bad reasons. It was International Women’s Day and there is much trans inclusion.

But also…

I took the day off yesterday. Today I learned that one of our #AsylumSeekers clients, a #translatina from El Salvador, was stabbed 14 times and nearly killed in an act of hate. My staff didn't tell me until today, because they knew I needed a day off. This is the job.
Hatred towards #immigrants and #transphobia, legitimized by our government leaders, makes the US a place where often times #AsylumSeekers don't find the safety they seek and desperately need.
If you're a black, LGBTQ, or Latinx immigrant, often times you experience racism, hatred, and violence in the US. The govt lies, calling you rapists and murderers, and making others believe your life matters less. That you can then be killed with impunity.

#Thread September is PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) Awareness Month!
The patriarchal gender bias in healthcare care practice and medicinal research has a negative impact on our well-being!
The impact is huge and diverse! People living with PCOS find it challenging to navigate through the bias that distorts research, diagnosis, and treatment. According to research, PCOS is fast becoming a modern epidemic, especially in Asia.
So what is it? PCOS is a common endocrine disorder that affects people with ovaries, with 20-25% womxn in India and around 1 in 10 womxn worldwide affected by it.

Great paper by @HelenaRoennfel2 and @DrLouiseByrne on senior staff's understanding of #livedexperience workforce issues: publish.csiro.au/ah/Fulltext/AH…

I particularly ❤️ Sam:

"...But you know just saying ‘you’re not recovered enough to do this job’ is a load of bullshit." (Sam)
"The ambiguity in this study reinforces the need for greater consensus in defining and determining relevant lived experience in the context of designated roles."

As someone who has previously been responsible for recruiting peer workers, I was less interested in what... 1/2
...experiences they had had, and more interested in what they had learnt from those experiences that might help them to connect with and support others, especially their capacity to work with people who may have different experiences and worldviews to their own. 2/2

Extraordinary that Guidance for Trans pupils in schools which has been in place from 2015 is being withdrawn or reviewed by local authorities following an anti trans campaign & a request for a judicial review, fronted by Christian Legal Centre affiliated team @commonslibrary
Christian Legal Centre has a long history of threatening to Judicial Reviews to challenge LGBT & Women's Rights. Including attempting actions against the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority; Against Government for At Home Abortions during Covid & bans on Church openings
They supported James Caspian, an MA student who sort a Judical Review after his research essay project (on transgender issues) was sent back for revisions by an Ethics Committee. They supported a Social work student who was expelled for stating "same sex marriage is a sin"

So, I am at @UIHealth with my Black friend, a Black trans person. They are visiting someone who is in the hospital. While they’re standing in the hospital room, another visitor enters the room and punches them in the face. This person doesn’t say anything. [1]
They don’t greet them. Nothing. They just punch them.

I go directly to the charge nurse a woman named Isabel and I tell her what’s happened. [2]
She goes to the room at @UIHealth, asks my friend if someone has hit them, they say yes, she asks who, they point to the person, she paces back to me, and then gets on the phone. [3]

"He saw all his friends go off to war and fighting for #America, and he wasn’t #racist going in, but he started going in that direction and became very much of an Islamophobe."--Former white nationalist confirming @kathleen_belew's thesis. #twitterstorians theatlantic.com/politics/archi…
"We don’t currently have any hate-crime laws that apply to online activity, but photoshopping someone’s face onto an Auschwitz prisoner on Twitter isn’t so different from spray-painting a swastika in a synagogue." Dude also confirmed that de-platforming works. #AntiFascism
The crazy thing about this parallel is that it shows how making private property sacrosanct is an impediment to fighting #fascism. It also exposes the contradiction of ideas being treated as intellectual property in some cases but free, open expressions of speech on the other.

@thetimes @pressgazette @theguardian @PrivateEyeNews @jjohnjewell @sambrook @stevenjbarnett @ladaprice @docrussjackson @BrianCathcart There was another trans court case last week – one that is still ongoing – but it has yet to make any newspaper in England or Scotland. Which is strange because it involves possibly the most famous newspaper in the world.

You’ve probably noticed shares from Prairie Freedom Movement, or their offshoots/websites. They’ve installed pro-separatist billboards in AB, SK, and MB.

Their messaging includes anti-globalist, anti-UN, & anti-Islam sentiments. #cdnpoli #abpoli #mbpoli #skpoli

Their support for #yellowvestscanada is obvious. /2
PFM shared numerous live feeds from the #unitedweroll convoy /3

1/ How transphobic backlash hit after city cut funding to Vancouver Rape Relief because it excludes trans people, days after the B.C. Supreme Court ruled in favour of a trans youth to access treatment despite father's objection thestar.com/vancouver/2019… @torontostar @starvancouver
2/ Some tweets insisted that “trans women are men” and accused trans women of being sexual predators. One called a trans person an “indignant g-sh,” a slang term for “vulva” or “something useless.”

“People have really strong views about whether trans women are women," -@VanAlias
3/ We discussed whether we should reproduce some of the hateful comments but giving a sense of the vitriol was important to help readers understand the backlash against the city's support of trans inclusion. Story on funding decision by @TessaVikander: thestar.com/vancouver/2019…

This the last tweet I’m going to engage with specific #DezNat things. I’ll still call out hateful individuals, but really this is shite behavior. Don’t try and deny it.Most of y’all are homophobic, misogynistic, transphobic, racist individuals — whether you “think” you are or not
Feel free if you’ve received hate from #Deznat to post it here. I figure we need a thread about it. #callthemout
Jus because someone calls out your shitty behavior doesn’t make them hateful. @lennie_mennie And see how deftly he dismisses the harassment of feminists and the meme that was made? #misogyny

I was going to see Captain Marvel today out of...idk, a sense of duty? I never MIND watching Marvel movies the first time; they're entertaining, just not rewatchable for me. I got all the way to buying the ticket and realized, "I really DO NOT WANT to see this." Here's why.
#tw #transphobia This movie has characters checking a character's genitals to determine if it's male or female and it's meant to be a joke. Just reading about it feels like violence to me. It's so distasteful. I hate this.
The movie has been sold as LOOK THIS IS A WOMAN SUPERHERO, like they deserve a cookie for taking more than a decade to have a woman headlining a movie. It's patronizing and frankly fucking irritating.
