So Black Israelites is the #1 trend on Twitter this morning! Maybe because they accosted the #CovingtonCatholic kids called them Crackers & even called one of the black teenagers the - N - word repeatedly & called White folks & Trump Supporters demons!
The Black Israelites are also very homophobic & insensitive to gay & lesbians.......how ironic! 😏

Now you see what #Racism & #Homophobia really looks like today.
#CovingtonCatholic
Btw.....#NathanPhillips is a liar playing a victim who is a Professional #Occupy Protester who uses his race & Veteran status to further a lie!

He's nothing more than a #BlueFalcon!

He went into the crowd to taunt the kids from #CovingtonCatholic

.@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.

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

(Thread) Because events in #Alberta politics happened at such a rapid pace, I decided to use my Facebook timeline to compile all the controversial incidents and scandals involving the #UCP in 2018 - because there was a lot. #ableg #abpoli (1/48)
Methodology: I'm not compiling silly gaffes that went nowhere (such as Jason Kenny's finger bowl comment), incidents like "So & so said something stupid on Facebook five years ago" unless the person became a candidate... #ableg #abpoli (2/48)
...nor am I compiling things that cannot be directly linked to the #UCP, such as the hoodies calling for @JustinTrudeau to be executed or the ongoing death threats to him and @RachelNotley - even though there is likely a link. (3/48)

Excellent article in the Times by @VictoriaPeckham tackling the 3 'S' of #Mermaids - Science, Sexism and Safeguarding. thetimes.co.uk/article/trans-…
'Are you a Princess Barbie jelly-baby who likes frilly dresses, high heels and takes ages to get ready? Or a GI Joe jelly-baby who wears boots and functional clothing?'
'Did you know that your preference for pink sparkles or muddy sports isn’t down to societal expectations of boys and girls. No, it’s written in your chromosomes. And that’s science' according to #Mermaids.

So, I've waded through the Evangelical Alliance's new pastoral "guidelines" for interacting with trans people (ughh, the things I do to expose #transphobic #ciswits to the world), and let's just say it's time to tear this particular sh*t-bag a new hole.

1/n
So, straight off the bat, first page of text, the use of #language is . . . well, yeah, see for yourself:

"It is important to remember that transgender is not simply an issue to be debated;" - p5, #Transformed

*sigh*

When such language gets reinforced by insisting...

THREAD (PART 3 of 4): Why you shouldn’t trust @QuilliamOrg ‘s report on #groominggangs & the claim that 84% of “grooming gang offenders” are Asian. An evidence-based critique. 1/
It ignores well-known biases in crime data, such as whether victims disclose (‘self-selection bias’), whether reports are investigated/prosecuted (‘institutional bias’) & whether convictions make the news (‘media bias’) 2/
If using news sources, it's a big mistake to overlook #mediabias – especially as coverage of “grooming gangs” has been very racialised. Crimes involving sex, children & race ‘sell' & stories fitting an established narrative tend to get more coverage. (bit.ly/2q7WLKq) 3/

@TheAdvocateMag @Amanda_Kerri I would, except your activists told me that “PTSD from sexual assault is a slippery slope” when I had concerns about being alone with intact males in vulnerable female spaces. Oh- and when TRAs started shaming and harassing Ls + Gs for their exclusive homosexuality. #homophobia
@TheAdvocateMag @Amanda_Kerri When TRAs called a woman who suffered from male violence and sexual abuse a “bigot” when she requested a *female* nurse for her cervical exam because she wasn’t comfortable with male hands on her body... #misogyny #MeToo #boundaries
@TheAdvocateMag @Amanda_Kerri ... When TRAs ganged up on *Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie*, celebrated feminist author, for saying “Trans women are trans women,” I thought maybe it’s against my best interests to support any activism that wishes to erase my sex class from having any meaning. #WomanMeansSomething

Happy #Pride
I was expelled from my all-girls high school for being a #lesbian & put in a mental hospital for #conversiontherapy.

I became an #LGBT activist to prevent that from happening to other girls like I was.
Yet conversion therapy is still legal.
Happy #Pride
I memorialize every #lesbian who died hidden in the shadows because of #homophobia, who was forced into compulsory heterosexuality, who was made to live a lie. You deserved better. We honor you by making a safer world for lesbians today. Amen.
🏳️‍🌈🖤❤️💜💙💚🧡💛
On #Pride I think of the #lesbian who became my mentor. She propelled me forward into lesbian #feminist writing. #AudreLorde opened a door for me I didn't know existed. I am so grateful she was in my life and left such a legacy for #lesbians.

There was no #LesbianVisibilityDay when I was 16.
I was expelled from my all-girls high school for being a #lesbian & put in a mental hospital for #conversiontherapy.

I became an #LGBT activist to prevent that from happening to other girls like I was.
On #LesbianVisibilityDay I memorialize every #lesbian who died hidden in the shadows because of #homophobia, who was forced into compulsory heterosexuality, who was made to live a lie. You deserved better and we honor you by making a safer world for lesbians now, today. Amen. 💜
One of America's greatest poets was a #lesbian--#AdrienneRich. When she died March 27, 2012, I wrote this tribute to her, illuminating her work and life.

I stand with @JoyAnnReid
I stand with black women.
I stood with black women in 2005.
I've stood with black women since I was a child & my parents were Civil Rights workers.
I will stand with black women till my last breath.
If you do NOT stand with black women, ask yourself why.
As a #lesbian, I hope people will stand with/for me.
They don't always, because being an ally takes work.
But I welcome allies, no matter how long it takes folks to get there.
We must believe in people being able to #change.
None of us has perfect politics nor personal lives.
Every day people change.
People who were racists realize they were wrong.
Men who were misogynists realize women are people.
Homophobes realize they were wrong.

We all have the power to realize we have been wrong and to change.
Embrace change.
It's how we heal the world.

#MarchForwardMA @MarchForwardMA wins. We have been assessing statements from hundreds of chapters and orgs regarding #WomensMarch #AntiSemitism. We can conclude this statement is the most shockingly offensive yet. Comments are equally disgusted. #EpicFail facebook.com/MarchForwardMA…
"We acknowledge that much of the demand to ‘condemn’ or ‘renounce’ Farrakhan is not itself a call to work for justice on behalf of marginalized communities, but is merely performative. We are not merely performative allies together in this movement." @MarchForwardMA #VictimShames
The Comments:

"All good. This was the last straw.
Check out We Are March On (@WeAreMarchOn): twitter.com/WeAreMarchOn?s…"

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.
#DepressionIsReal

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.

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
