It is puzzling to see that gay journalist @OwenJones84 seems blind to safeguarding issues relating to vulnerable young girls. Faced with reasonable questions from respected journalist @VictoriaPeckham on the 4000% increase in cases of teen girls going to gender clinics,/1of10
he has only sneers and false analogies to offer. Could his response derive from simple #misogyny? He has form. His is the last name in the (initially) anonymous petition against @suzanne_moore, accusing her of “transphobia” for writing about women’s rights./2of10
Our own experience also sheds light on his worldview. When we launched LGB Alliance in October 2019, Owen was quick to ask for an interview: he reached out to a well-known gay man who is one of our supporters. #LGBIssues/3of10

"They are not evaluating any other form of treatment for the problems of ‘transgender and gender-non conforming youth’. Do these children need this treatment? Is it more effective than placebo? This project is actively avoiding answering that question." 1/ medium.com/@sue.donym1984…
"That poses huge problems. If, for example, there was a control cohort of gender dysphoric children who were given placebos or simply not ‘treated’ at all, and then they grew up into healthy, well-adjusted gay and lesbian adults, the jig may be up for these doctors." 2/
"It would certainly destroy their careers if they were revealed to be wolves in sheep’s clothing, using homophobia to commit a medical experiment on the government’s watch and determine gender non-conformity by the bagginess of a child’s clothes." 3/

In a luncheon for new faculty @BYU this wk it was suggested that us faculty should model for our students how we live our faith... 1/ thread
This is somewhat of a struggle for me bcz I don’t wear my religion on my sleeve (as friends & colleagues outside BYU & church can attest). I prefer to let my actions reflect my faith, rather than my speech. 2/
However, since some folk at BYU & on this forum have rcntly confused my stance against racism & homophobia as “political,” allow me to share how my actions are motivated by my faith. 3/

#Tories Election Cock-Up Chaos so far - a continuing series :

01 - #Tories admit and apologise for a doctored, misrepresentative video of Kier Starmer. Tory MPs like @JohnnyMercerUK leave it on their feed and actively continue to spread.

It's #InternationalLesbianDay!
Here is a thread on iconic lesbians in history, past and present.
I hope you will show your allyship by reading and sharing. 📌

#Lesbians have been with us for centuries.
This sweet couple was photographed in 1907.

1/
19th c lesbians lived together in what were called #BostonMarriages.
Some (straight) historians have tried to de-gay them and erase their lesbian sexuality, agency and history. But they were still lesbians.

#InternationalLesbianDay
Democratic women have long been in the forefront of radical change in America.
#DrAliceHamilton was a physician, scientist, social reformer & #lesbian. Her work created #OSHA. Hamiliton focused on the health of #immigrant women.

While I’m on the subject of strangers being weird. Here’s a #thread on a #homophobic #microaggression I experienced, also from this @HiltonHotels hotel I’m in. It includes some thoughts on behavior for #customerservice folks.
So I am in Houston where one of my partners lives. My partner is a white non-binary femme & we had spent the day together before I checked into the hotel yesterday. The person checking us in said “Are you two together?” and I said yes.
The front desk person began checking me in and then said “Do you want a double suite?” I didn’t understand & asked them to repeat. The person said “You’re registered for a king bed, do you want a double suite instead? With two beds?”

I'm old. I remember this stuff.

How It Used To Be

It took three minutes for the TV to warm up.

Nobody owned a purebred dog.
A quarter was a decent allowance & made with real silver.

You'd reach into a muddy gutter for a penny - made with real copper. (I still do...giggle).
Your Mom wore stockings that came in two pieces - one for each leg.

You got your windshield cleaned, oil checked & gas pumped, without asking, all for free, every time.

You didn't pay for air & you got trading stamps, too.
Laundry detergent had free glasses, dishes or towels hidden inside the box.

And don't forget Crackerjacks! A prize in every box.

Teachers threatened to keep kids back a grade if they failed...and they did it.

When a 57 Chevy was everyone's dream car.

People "went steady."

While appearing on FOX NEWS, #TulsiGabbard, who has no experience in foreign policy unless you include chillaxing with mass murderer Bashir Assad, claims
#KamalaHarris ‘not qualified’ to be commander-in-chief because she has no FP experience.
fxn.ws/2Ob7FxM
This seems a good time to remind everyone that #TulsiGabbard's history of #homophobia is long and damaging. Her blaming her father when she was casting votes against #LGBTQ people in the HI state legislature is deceptive af.
huffpost.com/entry/opinion-…
In the state legislature when she was fighting against same-sex marriage while #KamalaHarris was marrying gay couples in San Francisco, Gabbard said,
"As Democrats we should be representing the views of the people, not a small number of homosexual extremists."
On. The. Floor.

False @jerseycornelia
People are imprisoned & killed for being gay.
I don't have the same rights you have. I have been fired from jobs, denied housing, thrown out of public accommodations, expelled from HS, put in a mental hospital for #conversiontherapy for being a #lesbian.
1/
You dismissing the impact of #homophobia on the lives of millions, @jerseycornelia, is saying that you really couldn't care less about the oppression and violence that #LGBTQ people suffer.
You might want to read up.

In initial interview before reaching ambulance, @MsNazContractor, playing the Muslim councilwoman whom Detective Carisi (@PeterScanavino) has already informed us is famous for anti-Semitic remarks, tells him & Detective Rollins (@KelliGiddish) that "those people" are responsible
for her assault. Thus, she confirms her antisemitism. The councilwoman is an barely concealed stand-in for Ilhan Omar, a representative to the US House of Representatives from Minnesota's 5th District. ilhanomar.com @nbcsvu @SVUWritersRoom
Min 0458: A reporter asks Chief Dodds (@petergallagher): "Councilwoman Nasar is an on-the-record anti-Semite. Can you comment?" Chief Dodds doesn't contradict the reporter's assertion, thus implicitly confirming it.

For #Eurovision #Азербайджан and #Spying studies, here's an article from @warisboring about Azeri #aviation being well-placed to use my #Soviet favourite (Foxbat) to work #intelligence against my #USAF (Blackbird).

This story I covered this week flew under the radar. It shouldn't have, especially not the week Trump attacked #LGBT people. And the comment I got from Trump's team was...telling.
1/
#Buttigieg targeted by right-wing operatives in antigay sex-assault smear epgn.com/news/national/…
Trump's team is worried about #Buttigieg rising. And they will be more upset now that the Buttigieges are on the @TIME cover because we've never had an out gay candidate in US history. (The not-so-veiled #homophobia from self-styled allies over it has been distressing.)
2/
Trump and Pence have been ginning up their "Evangelical" base with anti-#LGBTQ rhetoric and policy. So Burkman, whose firm reps the Family Research Council (Betsy DeVos's dad's anti-gay hate group)doing this smear was quite the suspect timing.

Via EUObserver via @Billbrowder and @lauferlaw Opposition MPs in Romania have introduced a #humanrights sanctions law named after late Russian activist, #Magnisky

@Billbrowder @lauferlaw @maddow @ACLU @HRC @amnesty @UNHumanRights @CJR @ICIJorg @OCCRP @guardian @NatashaBertrand #Romanian law is to be named after #Magnitsky, a Russian #antiCorruption activist who died in prison in 2009 and in whose honour Britain, Canada, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, and the US have already passed similar ‘Magnitsky Acts’
@latimes @washingtonpost @sfchronicle @PolitiZoom
@Billbrowder @lauferlaw @maddow @ACLU @HRC @amnesty @UNHumanRights @CJR @ICIJorg @OCCRP @guardian @NatashaBertrand The fact #Romania, which holds the #EUpresidency until 1 July, was moving ahead on a national level would lend “symbolic support” to the EU-level action, an EU diplomat said.

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

.@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
curvemag.com/News/Mike-Penc… #KarenPence
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.

THREAD 1. Since posting about #HolocaustMemorialDay , encouraging us to remember where hatred leads - #Srebrenica + #Holocaust genocides for example + standing up against #antisemitism #homophobia #Islamophobia #racism etc, I have been trolled
2. Who are these trolls? They are sick, narrow minded bigots of the Muslim faith (+ one Islamophobe). What have they been saying? Well I've been called: shabbos, House Muslim, House Arab, sellout, Zionist, shill for Israel + accused of attacking the right to free speech
3. Free speech and antisemitic speech are two different things. I reported this bigot because he is a bigot and Twitter clearly agreed with me. Free speech is not the right to promote hatred. I did call someone a nutjob I admit and got told I was demonising others
