Aprovechando que hoy es Día de la Lucha contra la Homofobia, Lesbofobia, Transfobia y Bifobia, les traigo algunos datos (preliminares, hace falta trabajarlos más) sobre la comunidad a partir del cuestionario ampliado del Censo 2020.

Primero, no podemos identificar a las personas trans. El encuestador registra lo que le responden cuando pregunta si alguien es hombre o mujer. Un hombre trans es hombre y una mujer trans es mujer, y así queda registrado.
Segundo, no hay manera de saber la orientación sexual de las personas porque no hay una pregunta para ello. Lo mejor que podemos hacer es observar hogares con pareja jefa de familia del mismo o diferente sexo.

1./ Someone asked me today if I was marking #IDAHOBIT2021. Seriously!? Here's why this daft sounding day against homophobia, transphobia and who knows what else phobia is a useless backslapping exercise and a perfect example of the trap the LGBTQ+ movement has locked itself in.
2./ Remember when gay people used to be quite good at this marketing game? Now we're associated with an international day that has the general public sniggering and guffawing since it conjures up nothing more than a certain movie filmed in New Zealand.👇
3./ Ironically, like the title of that trailer IDAHOBIT has gone on an Unexpected Journey of its own. Dreamed up by Lesbian & Gay groups in 2004, May 17th was chosen because that was the day in 1990 when @WHO dropped HOMOSEXUALITY from its list of diseases. Remember the H word?

There is no liberation without queer, gender, and sexual liberation.

For #IDAHOBIT, reposting this from March 6, 2020, when dear friend #Egyptian drag queen Ana Masreya invited me to speak at her show Nefertitties. It was just before our lockdown in #NYC.
May 17 is International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, Interphobia, and Transphobia.

The club in Brooklyn that night in 2020 was full of queer people from Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Iraq, Lebanon, Palestine, Morocco, Jordan. And on stage with Ana Masreya were Mexican queen Koko Rokoko and Palestinian queen Eva Laurent. It was 🔥🔥🔥

Ich möchte den heutigen #IDAHOBIT nutzen, um noch einmal auf Mittwoch aufmerksam zu machen: Es geht um die Abschaffung des TSG und die Einführung eines Selbstbestimmungsgesetzes in Deutschland. Die Grünen, FDP und Linke sind aktuell dafür; die Union und AfD dagegen.
Die SPD wäre gerne dafür (jedenfalls laut eigener Aussagen), aber kann es angeblich nicht in der Abstimmung zeigen, weil Koalitionszwang. Schickes Wort. Doch was bedeutet das eigentlich?
In meinem Verständnis muss die SPD sich an den Koalitionsvertrag halten.
Hier wird argumentiert, man könne nicht für den Entwurf stimmen, weil die CDU dagegen stimmen wird. Das ist eine doppelte Ausrede, da erstens eine solche Pflicht nirgends steht und zweitens im K.-Vertrag vermerkt ist, dass eine Verbesserung der Situation queerer Menschen erreicht
