On Burns Night, my boyfriend and I had a really shit #homophobic incident in #Glasgow's southside. We were holding hands, and a guy walked passed us and called us a "pair of bent bastards". I challenged him, he repeated the phrase, I called 999.
For the next 26 mins, I stayed on th phone w/@PoliceScotland, my boyfriend filmed and th man continued to call us "bent bastards" "bent cunts" "fucking poofs" "pair of poofs", "it's not fucking right two men sleeping together" (limited but effective lexicon: he did not like gays)
He hated me. He told me that. He snarled at me, told me that I was against the law, that I was fucking disgusting, for the best part of 30mins. This man saw me as one thing he despised; not as a brother, or a son, or grandson, or a friend, or whatever.

-Isms should be uncomfortable. Labeling something as a 'bias' or prejudice does not make it less #racist, #sexist, #homophobic, #ageist, #ableist, etc. Recognizing your own racism, sexism, homophobia - your own -ism, is the first step to fighting it

Sugar-coating these words to make them more comfortable to work with does us no favors.

Back story:

During the Ignite pre-day I was very open about recognizing my own bias, specifically my own racism. I understand that it exists & I actively work against that conditioning. 2/
It is conditioning. And exists in most of us. I was just willing to admit to it in an open forum. It's sad that instead of asking how we can all get to a place where we are admitting to & working against our own isms, people get hung up on the admission & label me "a racist" 3/

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?”

1) There is never a minute of peace, when it comes down to copping Threats, Racist Abuse, & bullying from #Serco employees in Arbitrary Detention.

The compound i'm currently in, is made up of extremely medically unwell detainees, elderly, depressed, disabled, suicidal etc.
2) The detainees brought to the attention that they are absolutely terrified of an extremely Racist Serco Bully named: 'Bruce'. A middle aged white man, who works as "Welfare & Engagement Officer". He would regularly subject detainees to Racist Abuse, & derogatory racial slurs.
Annexure 1: A different #Serco guard abusing & using #Homophobic slurs against elderly detainees in a deifferent detention centre in #MITA.

In any other work place this person would have lost his job, but @AusBorderForce protected this guard:

#ElizabethWarren's bill reminds me of Romney's advice to youths in 4/2012, "Borrow money, if you have to, from your parents. Start a business... [Jimmy John Liautaud] borrowed $20K from his dad..."

The loan was c. 7/82 and was actually $25K.
$25K in 7/82 = $59K in 4/12
#Warren
In the first half of 2019, the nat'l average #rent increased by 2.6%.

Warren declined to be interviewed for this story. In May, at request of media, her campaign released a summary of her outside work. As a senatorial candidate, Warren released a shorter version, which omitted her work for Dow Chemical.

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.

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...

So.

Time for something a little different, and an idea I’ve been toying with—a look at how #transphobes try to frame their narrative within a claim that they are only “concerned” about trans people existing.

I think it’s safe to say that every trans person in the...

1/n
community who isn’t a #transphobic arserag can now spot whenever the usual #hate groups and individuals deploy their dog-whistles to denigrate trans people, especially trans women, but it is all too easy to forget that for the average cis person with no experience of...

2/n
this the comments and phrases that #transphobes come out with can come across as bizarre, or non-sequiturs, or even occasionally even reasonable. That person, because they have no experience of this, doesn’t see those comments as the attacks they are, and so can’t...

@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?
@SurvivorsnetBtn @RASASC_London @survivorstrust @Danvers07943910 @ObjectUK @Womans_Place_UK #Transwomen do face special challenges but they remain #bio #logical #males but it is fine for them #Gender express as ‘women’ but with the best will in the world, they remain #bio #logically #male @WomenEqualities @Commonswomequ @PennyMordaunt @MariaMillerUK @LesleySemmens

.Every day in twitterverse I watch straight young white people who identify as "progressive" demean and diminish the lives of the marginalized & insist that WE need to recognize that "economic security" is the #1 issue all liberals need to focus on which will then solve all. (1)
.I watch them speak from their lofty privilege not realizing that they are standing on a platform built by the very people they demean. Their lack of gratitude for the work of these before them blows my mind. Their robotic devotion to an establishment man with minimal (2)
.accomplishments in his career is staggering. What saves me from despair is the ongoing work of POC and LGBTQ activists and allies who continue to engage the #racist & #homophobic #misogynist #transphobic "sleeping" people. Huge credit to all of you doing this work (3)
