1: It's time to claim my space. I was one of just a few journos who held @AndrewLamingMP to account prior to 2021. I lived in Bowman from 2012-2017 and I reported on him via @margokingston1's @NoFibs. AN EVOLVING THREAD on #Laming #LGBTQ equality #Journalism #Books and more.
2: It began in 2013 when I submitted an article on #MarriageEquality to Margo's #CitizenJournalism news site @NoFibs. Up until then, the site had not really covered that issue, which mattered a lot to me. @MrKRudd had just announced his support for reform: nofibs.com.au/burgewords-on-…
3: The image above is of Senator Sue Boyce (@SenatorSue) former LNP Senator for Queensland, crossing the floor to become the first LNP politician in the country to vote for marriage equality. It was a short walk but it gave the #LGBTQ community hope.

11 to 14 March and despite it covering one day more than its predecessor, seems to be significantly less trans in the news. Amazon and LGBT advisors making waves. Also Biden and Biden backlash.

Clear case of #projection going on here.

There is no bottom to the level of depravity in these people’s minds.

@AbigailShrier has my backing & that of countless other men & women out there. TRAs used this same line of filthy defamatory propaganda against JKR.

They make 1/
everything about the gender critical case for the preservation of women’s sex based rights sexual because EVERYTHING about the demands of TRAs stems from their sexual objectification of women & girls bodies & lives.

They cant think of anything in any other context but sexual 2/
Their “cause” is steeped in #misogyny #homophobia, science denial & sexual delusion. Their entire movement is pathological & harmful to society as a whole. It will eventually fail, but in the meantime we have to suffer attempts to destroy the loudest, most credible GC voices 3/

8 to 10 March. And this update is a biggie! Not entirely for bad reasons. It was International Women’s Day and there is much trans inclusion.

@Shatterface I do not think so (unless you are just speaking paradoxically). We changed the world, which is no longer the same as in the 1970s. There are different needs, we must address differently. "Lesbian bars are closing" not because cops are raiding them, but because lesbian women are 1
@Shatterface enjoying alternatives better. They were the right answer to a problem experienced in the 1970s, now they are no longer so. We may be nostalgic about them, but this is only bc they are the place of our youth. But those who are young now, have better alternatives. We built them 2
@Shatterface thanks to half a century of activism. We should be proud of this fact, not worried about it.
OTOH, activism produced - as usual in politics - a counter-narration denying the very sense of what we did. Remarkably, the reaction came from within our community, from those among us 3

Basically am now being called a liar by the man who invited me to @UVA to do the post doc. At the time I had no other outlet as I was told emails about my issues were unwelcome. When trying to discuss these issues telephonically the phone was put down and not answered.
I haven't told the people I work here in South Africa the details of my nightmarish experience @UVA. But the PI who invited me sent a 35 page response to the people we both know & not only called me a liar, but disclosed the sensitive health information I told him in confidence.
Not only that but apparently introducing my husband to him & others at @UVA was unsolicited information.
Hey man - I'm married and he introduced me to his wife as "his wife".
This is a prime example of heteronormativity and subtle #homophobia faced by the #LGBTQ community.

LAPD rally today at the LAPD Academy— hello Proud Boy. LAPD breaks up #fight between a Proud Boy and BLM. Proud Boy assumes BLM is all fatherless and finds that hilarious (noted at the end of video)

Clearly Proud Boys are not “okay” with homosexuals. At LAPD rally today, Proud Body makes homophobic statement and tells me to go home because I’m a “little girl”

Great paper by @HelenaRoennfel2 and @DrLouiseByrne on senior staff's understanding of #livedexperience workforce issues: publish.csiro.au/ah/Fulltext/AH…

I particularly ❤️ Sam:

"...But you know just saying ‘you’re not recovered enough to do this job’ is a load of bullshit." (Sam)
"The ambiguity in this study reinforces the need for greater consensus in defining and determining relevant lived experience in the context of designated roles."

As someone who has previously been responsible for recruiting peer workers, I was less interested in what... 1/2
...experiences they had had, and more interested in what they had learnt from those experiences that might help them to connect with and support others, especially their capacity to work with people who may have different experiences and worldviews to their own. 2/2

“LADY G” THREAD

Lindsey Graham has been trending on Twitter over the past 24 hrs. I’m going to talk about how that came to be & why discussing rumors about Graham’s sexuality are fair game given his anti-LGBT record & his support of a psychopathic president.

#LadyGraham #LadyG
1. HOW IT BEGAN

Rumors about Graham being gay have been around for years. What sparked the recent drama though was a tweet by a porn star (see below) who claimed a Republican Senator (“LG”) has been both one of his clients & of other sex workers.

2. WHY IT MATTERS

Given the GOP’s long history of anti-LGBT rhetoric, it’s no surprise that Graham has a bad record on #LGBT issues. His congressional rating by @HRC is just 12%. It’s bad enough when straight folks oppose LGBT equality but even worse when one of our own does.

"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/

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/

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.

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.

Democratic women have long been in the forefront of radical change in America.

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."

"He saw all his friends go off to war and fighting for #America, and he wasn’t #racist going in, but he started going in that direction and became very much of an Islamophobe."--Former white nationalist confirming @kathleen_belew's thesis. #twitterstorians theatlantic.com/politics/archi…
"We don’t currently have any hate-crime laws that apply to online activity, but photoshopping someone’s face onto an Auschwitz prisoner on Twitter isn’t so different from spray-painting a swastika in a synagogue." Dude also confirmed that de-platforming works. #AntiFascism
The crazy thing about this parallel is that it shows how making private property sacrosanct is an impediment to fighting #fascism. It also exposes the contradiction of ideas being treated as intellectual property in some cases but free, open expressions of speech on the other.

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.

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."

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.

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.
