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

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
