1) Gender critical ppl, I´m skeptical about the mere existance of something called "transphobia". All examples I´ve been brought could easily be better located into homophobia, lesbophobia, misoginy, racism, sexism, mere disagreements...
2) No-one "is trans", since no-one can change sex and everyone is a man or a woman, including intersex ppl (thanks @zaelefty !). All men r men even when they r clearly non-conforming (cross-dressers, transvestites, effeminate gay men), dysphoric or changed their appearance
3) and the same goes to women. Even the small amount of ppl that do get the external appearance of a person from the opposite sex r still men or women just like a women like Rachel Dolezal is still a white woman even when she "looks black". So, if a men in dress is attacked,

Because we covered #transpretender yesterday today's word:


The imaginary word created to describe dislike / hatred of trans people based upon the term phobia which means an irrational fear of something, thus transphobia is a fake word.
As we all know there is a group of people within the #transgender movement that are transpretenders. These people have taken up the militant argument that if you don't like dating trans people or show any resistance to transgender "issues" you immediately hate trans people.
Since the term phobia is related to fear and not hatred, you cannot be transphobic because there isn't a single documented case medically where anyone has ran away in terror because someone suddenly announced that they're trans. It's a fake word, end of story.

It's 2020. It's time to embrace the way liberals do things.

They revise history. They manipulate language and even make up words.

Today our example is:


The fictitious belief that human beings have an irrational fear of gay people.
To date there has been no offered proof that such a thing even exists.

Liberals believe that weaponizing language can be a great tool to batter those they oppose. By calling you homophobic, or accuse you of internalized homophobia if you happen to be gay, they feel superior.
When you control a word and weaponize it for usage against your enemies you sell others on the idea of an emotion being more important than logic and reason.

Most liberal arguments stem from usage of emotional weapons as a tool to override common sense and education.

Sometimes I just need some support, or a break from my #vegan activism, because its hard as a #transvegan. Instagram has some really hateful #transphobia spewing bigots. Hoping my twitter fam can help me feel safe after this #transveganphobic activist called me delusional 😥

This is a VERY LONG thread about #journalism #ethics #bias #transphobia #islamophobia and newsroom culture Please stick with it, there are some pretty alarming allegations coming up.
@thetimes @pressgazette @theguardian @privateeyenews
@thetimes @pressgazette @theguardian @PrivateEyeNews This is a story from @thetimes on Saturday. It is one of ten that have touched on trans issues this month.

@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… @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:…

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.

This is a thread detailing the transphobic vitriol & harassment of random trans people by the "gender crit mum" Kate Scottow (aka Dr.Fanny Cradock) who was supposedly arrested for only calling a trans woman, a man, which we know isn't the whole truth #Transphobia #UK
This is her right here straight up posting a random trans person's facebook profile and posts on her Twitter profile (with thousands of followers) mocking them with a friend. This is also her straight up randomly posting another trans person's facebook profile 1/8
This is her raging about Keychange recognizing and supporting trans and non-binary musicians & performers, claiming that they're doing feminism "wrong" by recognizing and supporting trans and non-binary folk. 2/8

Seems to be a bit of a movement among transphobes at the moment claiming that the only hate and abuse comes from the trans community. Let's put that right. #trans #transgender #transphobia #TransRightsAreHumanRights #lwiththet

Can we for real make #collectyourcousins a thing? Black folks are constantly collecting their cousins bc 1 black person acting a fool can have far reaching consequences for all of us. White folks don’t seem to feel as implicated by the failures or foolishness of other white folks
I propose #collectyourcousins as a call to allies to come respond to racist (sexist, cissexist, ableist, homophobic) comments by similarly identified people. White women collecting white women. Straight men collecting straight men. Cis folks collecting cis folks.
The appeal of #collectyourcousins in two-fold for me. 1: Privileged folks often respond defensively especially to marginalized folks calling them on such privilege or ignorance. They have a harder time being dismissive of folks with shared identities.

Positive news regarding the #harassment I have received in recent weeks from #transgender hostile "feminists". Tonight I have been informed by Hertfordshire Police that they arrested a 38 year old woman from the Hitchin area on suspicion of harassment and malicious communications
Following an interview whilst in custody the suspect has now been released under investigation whilst further evidence is gathered from seized electronic devices #transgender #harassment
In due course a report will be submitted to the Crown Prosecution Service with a view to charging the suspect with harassment and malicious communications. #transgender #harassment

my is my promised THREAD for my new essay: Putting the “Transgender Activists Versus Feminists” Debate to Rest (btw, it's on Medium, so please give it lots of "claps" so that others see it!)… #transgender #women #feminism #LGBTQ #gender #activism
...I saw some wild claims about my piece yesterday, so I will attempt to clarify here. my first point: there is a long history of feminist debates and discourses regarding trans ppl. Talia Bettcher discusses this in her critique of that Stock piece:… someone who has played a small part in that history, and who spends much of my time in feminist settings, I can tell you that the "feminist debate" regarding trans people is largely settled, as most contemporary feminist recognize that...

PLEASE RT: I want to say something about recent matters involving West Yorkshire Police, Norfolk Constabulary and me #transgender #harassment

On 2 October 2018 I attended the HQ of Norfolk Constabulary to give a statement in connection with allegations of harassment (1)
I spent 5 hours providing a statement and evidence in connection with the well publicised allegations made by me to the Police concerning #transphobia. Norfolk Constabulary then liaised with West Yorkshire Police to decide how best to deal with this matter (2) #transgender
Following discussions between West Yorkshire Police and me I expressed my view that my preference was for the Police to take proportionate and swift action to make clear that #transgender #harassment was unacceptable. I made clear my preference was for a harassment warning (3)

@SurvivorsnetBtn @RASASC_London @survivorstrust @Danvers07943910 @ObjectUK @BrightonSurvivorsNET “In the light of a highly disturbing increase of #transphobia locally & nationally…” IF everything anybody says or does is #transphobia, of course you can say it is rising. Any reputable statistics?
@SurvivorsnetBtn @RASASC_London @survivorstrust @Danvers07943910 @ObjectUK “…so the date @Womans_Place_UK event feels like a concerted effort to make #trans ppl, & particularly #transwomen, feel #intimidated and #invalidated” Is it the position of SN that the sensitivities of #transwomen mean that #democracy should be suspended any time they say so?

Fell into a 90s/00s #suicide anthem music loop this afternoon and it reminded me of how depressed I have been in the past and how depressed I am now, again, and how much we still don't discuss #depression in this society.
I wrote this a couple years ago.
It's a good piece on writers & suicide, with an emphasis on #LGBT suicides because we kill ourselves more (thanks #homophobia/#transphobia)than str8 people.

Society still romanticizes #depression instead of treating it.
Theme song for cutters everywhere.
Raise you hand if you thought you were the only one with razor blades in your pocket for...years.

Let me tell you a story (thread). When I came out to my mom at 17, I wasn’t too sure I was gay. Neither was she. Popular media and public representation mirrored only one specific caricature, and both of us (in our own minds) thought I couldn’t be gay
Coupled with the fact that while growing up I 1) barely ever saw any representation of queer individuals in media and 2) if I did, they were all the butt of all jokes, the tireless “omg that’s a man in a dress” tropes, led me to believe that I couldn’t be queer. No sir not me
Hence, I went back in the closet, thinking since there is only one way to be gay I DEFINITELY cannot be gay. It was only about a year after that that I learnt and realized how ridiculous that notion was
