Morgen, am Donnerstag, den 30.06.2022, soll der Bundestag über die Einführung des sog. “#Selbstbestimmungsgesetz” abstimmen, das dann das veraltete “Transsexuellengesetz” ablösen soll. Dies ist ein gewaltiger Schritt für die Rechte und Sichtbarkeit von trans Menschen. 🧵 1/15
Bisher war eine Transition mit hohen Kosten, bürokratischen Hürden und der Abhängigkeit von gutwilligen Therapeut*innen und Behörden verbunden. Das neue Gesetz soll die amtliche Personenstandsänderung vereinfachen. U.a. Portugal, Belgien oder Norwegen haben ähnliche Gesetze. 2/15
Dass trans Menschen nun selbstbestimmt ihren amtlichen Geschlechtseintrag anpassen können, ist transfeindlichen Kräften ein Dorn im Auge. Seit Monaten machen sie mit antifeministischer und queerfeindlicher Propaganda gegen das Selbstbestimmungsgesetz mobil. 3/15

In anticipation of trump's #CPAC2021 speech, these analyses from @BrandeisNow are a view into the #codedlanguage he uses to speak directly to those he has targeted messages for. His base feels as though they have their own secret signals to communicate. /1
Trump's use of literary devices like non sequitur & dog whistles allow him to wiggle away from responsibility because he encodes his messages in the garb of #plausibledeniability I have broken out some definitions as well b/c well, I had to learn them.

Definitions: non sequitur, political dog whistle, plausible deniability, and perlocutionary effect.

Twitter made me mad today. Must be time for an #RVAMayor Campaign thread!

Incumbent Mayor Stoney says "I choose Richmond." WTF does this mean? Lots of things. But it also suggests a campaign strategy

1/
Stoney's tenure has been a roller coaster of ups and downs. Before #GeorgeFloyd, it seemed the failed #NavyHill development would be the albatross that possibly ended his career. But the #BLM protests have made his re-election prospects even trickier
2/
A lot of folks, largely conservatives and property owners, oppose protests by default. They don't understand them, & rely on media and authorities who continue to refer to "violence" and "looters" to de-legitimize any political claims that animate them
