In honor of the #Callisto6 finale this weekend, I am going to be posting something I've been meaning to for the last 3-ish weeks or so.

I am running a vanilla 1.14 Minecraft server for the #SuperPunks (if you're interested give me a yell in the fan discord), and did something...
The something being 20-odd #PRIDE flags in the form of Minecraft Banners. Some disclaimers:

There's only so much detail that can be put into a given banner, and I only have so much skill. As much as I would have loved to have a Philly PRIDE banner, it's beyond my abilities atm.
Right now it's basically me and one other person from the #Superpunks/#AuxCrew Discord on the Minecraft server, but other fans are welcome to join.

The server is Whitelisted, and I will only be handing out the IP on the Discord/via IMs. Dragon is dead, and most pets are tamed

I have always felt so out of place in the #queer community because #gay men can be so cruel to each other. I imagine its similar to what women experience every day in the criticism they receive by their peers and the media. I have never been the person who gets hit on at the bar,
...My friends were always chosen over me by romantic prospects. Existing as a gay man can be very isolating if you don’t live up to expectations women are expected to abide by; you have to look a certain way, you have to fit a certain gender role expectation.
Recently, I have been building relationships with other gay men, some I’ve known for years and some I’ve met online in spheres usually meant for hooking up rather than friendships. These relationships have been integral to what I hope to be a pattern of growth I am in.

When I was a kid, it seemed that a favorite insult used on playgrounds, in the neighborhood, and wherever kids gathered, was calling someone a "faggot."

I could tell, from an early age, that being a "faggot" must be a really horrible thing, but I didn't know what it was.
Later, when understanding illuminated meaning, I knew that kids, well, now teens, who were contemptuously deriding the guy that couldn't shoot straight (at basketball), or missed a catch in baseball, etc., were talking about ... me.
How could I ever tell family and friends that the word they invested with such disgust, such contempt, such disregard, was a word that described me, and people like me.

Sex is not simply a hunger to be satisfied. It is important that from adolescence onwards, a more mature attitude to see and experience sexuality should be nurtured.

#sex #gay #Lgbtq #men2men #girl2girl #pleasure #desire #samesex
Sex should be experienced as a vital, dynamic aspect of human interplay, rather than just a physical act or episode in our own lives
#sex #gay #Lgbtq #men2men #girl2girl #pleasure #desire #samesex
The school of thought to be encouraged in this process should involve acknowledging, accepting and displaying confident masculine and feminine characteristics, without either provoking or submitting to erotic temptation. #sex #gay #Lgbtq #men2men #girl #pleasure #desire #samesex

THREAD : LES TRANSSEXUELS ET TRANSGENRES EXISTENT-ILS VRAIMENT ?
On parle beaucoup, ces temps-ci, de sexe, de genre, de transsexuel et de transgenres. Le préfixe trans (fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trans), qui signifie en latin “de l’autre côté”, indique un changement, un passage d’un sexe à un autre ou d’un genre à un autre.

@RawStory Did you hear about this in school?
Was #AbrahamLincoln a Gay American?
"For homosexuals, there was a cloud over them but it seldom rained."
People, Ms. Baker noted, "were accustomed to these friendships between men."

So, the past few weeks has seen a growing public awareness in the UK of how the far-right, especially the religious far-right, in the US likes to operate, and likes to use willing, if witless, pawns to do their bidding.

The name that's been making the headlines recently...

1/n
is The #Heritage #Foundation. But what, exactly, does The Heritage Foundation espouse? What is it's driving ideological foci?

And the answer to that, if you care one iota for women, or for LGBTQI+ people, is grim to say the least.

This is an organisation that states:

On SOGI (Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Laws):

"SOGI laws are about forcing all Americans to embrace—and live out—certain beliefs about human sexuality. They are not about protecting the freedom of people to live as LGBT, but about coercing everyone else to...

Forget Tops/Bottoms, Twinks/Bears, Masc/Femme…@Stewrhino and I have cracked the Gay Alignment Chart #Gay #GayTwitter
Radical Fabulous, "The Crusader"

Radical Fabulous combines a commitment to oppose evil with the discipline to fight relentlessly. They are the Triple-XL of Extra. Their worst fear is seeing evil go unpunished. Radical Fabulous can be dangerous when it overpowers others.
Radical Basic, "The Benefactor"

Radical Basic is the gay boy every Grandma wanted to marry their granddaughter (even after he came out). They are devoted to helping others. Sometimes, all the negativity in this world brings them down, but they don’t let that stop them dancing.

.@TulsiGabbard You seem unfamiliar with your own record on this issue.

You led actual protests in HI against #LGBTQ people.
You called gay people "homosexual extremists."
You stopped funding to schools, saying you didn't want "homosexuality promoted."
1/
.@TulsiGabbard You refused to back initiatives to address anti-gay discrimination in the schools, claiming--even as you,an elected official, were discriminating against #gay people--that there was no discrimination against gay teens, which has been well-documented for decades.
2/
.@TulsiGabbard Your support and endorsement of virulently anti-gay groups included working for an organization that promoted the dangerous pseudo-science of #ConversionTherapy.

Here's my in-depth investigation on it for @damemagazine. Please read it.

Think how hard #KarenPence had to work to find a school promoting hate curricula near DC.

Karen Pence will teach part time at a Christian school in the DC suburbs that does not allow #gay students, parents or employees to be part of its community politi.co/2FCfkPK
My viral story on Pence from right before the #Inauguration.

Mike Pence Wants To Turn You Straight: Trump's Homophobic VP and Cabinet

It's not surprising that #KarenPence is supporting #homophobia.
Her husband is one of the nation's leading proponents of the horrific practice of #conversiontherapy.

SQUARE #FLATEARTH //THREAD//

...This thread will focus on some of the things covered in a little known FB group called:

"Ethiopian Enoch 1 , Flat Fact Square Earth Truth. Ae Pizza Fe Lie ."

This group differs from other #FLATEARTH groups in the following ways:
* Advanced FE information is presented & shit posting is discouraged.
* Promotion of the "round map" or "debate" are forbidden.
* Redundant experiment, observation & recording of data is encouraged.
* The book "1 Enoch" is the main reference text, (Richard Lawrence Translation)
The main work--started by a man named Sam--is focused on Enoch due to Sam having matched what's described in 1 Enoch Ch. 72, 73, etc, with observable reality. Deeper exploration of the Enoch text gives clues to other occulted knowledge about this realm we call "Earth".

here we go again: the tired & baseless myth that transitioning is some kind of attempt to erase gay people. I know that Debra Soh isn't a big fan of facts, but if one actually bothers looking up the statistics...
...one finds that the vast majority of #transgender people define their sexual orientation as non-heterosexual (i.e., #lesbian #gay #bisexual #queer and/or #asexual) – see page 28 of "Injustice at Every Turn" transequality.org/issues/resourc… #LGBTQ
...I know that nothing will stop Soh from writing the same 80% desistance/ROGD pseudoscience article over and over again, so long as media outlets will publish her. but I have to say that her latest "#transgender erases #gay people" angle is a complete and utter joke.

A reminder on #NationalComingOutDay that only one country in the entirety of the Middle East supports, defends and celebrates freedom of choice:

#Israel
As a contrast to their equal rights in #Israel, here is how #gay men are treated in #Iran.
#NationalComingOutDay
Sodomy is punishable by death in #SaudiArabia.

I looked up @lgbtmap's resources showing which states have passed bans against #conversiontherapy on the basis of sexual orientation for minors. The states are CA, WA, OR, NV, NM, IL, VT, NH, RI, CT, NJ, DE, and MD + D.C. lgbtmap.org/equality-maps/….
Here are the relevant portions of CA's law: "This bill would prohibit a mental health provider, as defined, from engaging in sexual orientation change efforts, as defined, with a patient under 18 years of age."
“Sexual orientation change efforts” means any practices by mental health providers that seek to change an individual’s sexual orientation.

@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?
