It is extremely disturbing to me how woke white liberals continue to use the term #Latinx despite it having been extremely clear that over 90% of the Hispanic community doesn't approve of the label and considers such to be a racial slur.

If people from a culture or ethnic group tell me that they consider the name I use for them to be offense, I am going to immediately cease using that name out of respect.

The woke liberals tell us all a white wealthy man needs to to is tell they are a woman and we have to call them a women no questions asked, that it is literal violence and should a be a crime to even accidently forget and refer to them as a man

@pfaff4congress, I think it’s time to update your contribution statement via @actblue.

@WNC_Politico, I donated, no tip - again, just like @HillaryClinton and @HumaAbedin Chipotle Maumee Ohio Monday April 13, 2015.

Are @TheDemocrats trying to Win?



“Pregnant people,” not Women

“Birthing person,” not Mother

denying cisgender Women their own exclusive athletic competition category #SaveWomensSports

and similar nonsense.

If it’s very minor, why are they pushing it?

Common sense needed.

Thank you.

@NoShirtFlipFlop Yes, unfortunately, @TheDemocrats and militant transgender activists just cannot stop:


“Pregnant people,” not Women

“Birthing person,” not Mother

Denying cisgender Women their own exclusive athletic competition category #SaveWomensSports

@NoShirtFlipFlop @TheDemocrats Labeling cisgender heterosexual men as transphobic if they are not interested in dating a pre-op trans woman.


Labeling cisgender gay men as transphobic if they are not interested in dating a pre-op trans woman or a trans man at any stage of gender transition.

@SteveSchmidtSES @TimRyan @EvanMcMullin @JohnFetterman You are quite correct.

However, despite the desires of @PostOpinions to cede everything to militant transgender activists, the American people are rejecting their rejection of gender and sex, by voting Against @TheDemocrats:


“Pregnant people,” not Women

@SteveSchmidtSES @TimRyan @EvanMcMullin @JohnFetterman @PostOpinions @TheDemocrats “Birthing person,” not Mother

@WalshFreedom @WajahatAli, why are @TheDemocrats pushing:


“Pregnant people,” not women

“Birthing person,” not mother

Denying cisgender women their own exclusive athletic competition category #SaveWomensSports

@WalshFreedom @WajahatAli @TheDemocrats Not to mention @Abby4Iowa’s diverse campaign staff who messed up her petitions to get on the ballot.

Yes, varied demographics, life experiences, etc., but did anyone have a clue about petitions?

Do more than the minimum; that’s obvious.

@TheRickWilson On the other hand, #FL20 was vacant for almost a year and it’s not clear that anyone noticed.

Seriously, then-Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-FL-20) in January 2019 responsibility announced his pancreatic cancer diagnosis.

He should not have sought re-election in 2020.

@TheRickWilson @GovRonDeSantis’ character was already clear in mid-2019.

Maybe @FlaDems @browarddems @PBCDemParty urged him to retire, but in any event, he ran again in 2020, was renominated and re-elected, and, sadly, passed away in April 2021, less than 100 days in.

Not a surprise.

@TheRickWilson @GovRonDeSantis @FlaDems @browarddems @PBCDemParty So, a long delay in @GovRonDeSantis scheduling the Special Election; @BrowardVotes and @votepalmbeach should have matched the August primary and November general elections elsewhere in #Florida for simplicity.

And similarly for the state legislators who resigned to run.

@johnpavlovitz Here’s what I am doing:

I am writing to @ReverendWarnock’s fundraiser to let her know why I am reluctant to go beyond my token contribution to his re-election campaign:

Because @TheDemocrats @DNC @harrisonjaime are doing everything they can to lose the elections:

@johnpavlovitz @ReverendWarnock @TheDemocrats @DNC @harrisonjaime #LatinX

“Pregnant people” instead of women

“Birthing person” instead of mother

Excluding cisgender women from their own athletic competition category #SaveWomensSports

Sorry, but we can kiss our democracy and our US Constitution good-bye.


Very sad

We have created this thread for our English-speaking supporters, partners, and followers.

Upon reaching the 6 month milestone, #MisiónLatinaLuterana (@ELCA, #spselca) we have been highlighting our impact in the community. 🧵1/
We spoke about the importance of making sacraments accesible, of honoring traditions —such as quinceañeras— and to provide opportunities for access to health via vaccination clinics on-site.

It all comes down to providing VISIBILITY

#ELCA #spselca
Our Latinx community often does not have the opportunity to express themselves publicly

When we become VISIBLE, we can help each other better

It was an amazing event that got almost 500 shots in the arms of #LatinX people. @LATIN19NC collaborated with La cooperativa Latina Credit Union, La Semilla, @CentroHispanoNC Southeastern healthcare @HumansOfPRN @Curamericas, @DukeHealth and @DukeRaleigh to make this happen.
We collectively made over 3000 phone calls and multiple TV, and Facebook live appearances to fight mistrust, answer questions, share stories and bring #latinx people from never making it into a list or multiple waiting lists to getting a #COVIDVaccine
Most people receiving the vaccine today were older than 65, a few were parents of children with complex needs,  some were health care workers and some were school employees. We followed @ncdhhs guidelines to register people for #VacunasCOVID19

It took a while to digest the details of over 600 pages, but here is my review and comparative analysis of the #ACTT2 trial that compared #baricitinib vs. #placebo among patients receiving #remdesivir for #COVID19!

Some very interesting insights, I think!

Sit briefly and enjoy!
Will be mainly comparing #ACTT2 to #ACTT1, but also will get some insights and questions that come up when comparing #ACTT2 to the #dexamethasone #RecoveryTrial
The idea of using #baricitinib (aka Bari) for #COVID19 is in this commentary in .@TheLancet from Feb. when Peter Richardson & Co working .@benevolent_ai .@ucl searched drugs and noted that #bari could block inflammation & viral endocytosis.

"This is our moment of opportunity! But how?"

This is a short thread on how "trusted #messengers" & technology ("#vaxbots"; "vaccine bots"; AI) will (most certainly) be utilized to mitigate/overcome vaccine hesitancy.

Vaccine Confidence Project, Nov 9 2020

A "Pro-vaccinate #movement"

"The big search for new, trusted messengers to reach the hesitant audiences (Kim Kardashian or the #NHS?)"

"#Health Providers are confused". In truth, many health providers are not confused. Rather, they are increasingly concerned.

"Building #trust"

"We have built many relationships and a high degree of credibility which means we can engage other researchers with our community partners."

"We think we know about this moment in history because we have these [specific, highly curated] images of the moment. But we do not know about it."

I hung out on Zoom today w/ Deborah Paredez, one of the founders of @CantoMundo & author of The Year of The Dog @boaeditions
"These images must be deconstructed. They cannot be simply reproduced."

Paredez on working w/ iconic images from Vietnam War. She used cut-up technique & personal letter archive for embodied experience of working with the material.
I was asking her for advice about how to rebuttal this idea that disability poetics is "niche." She said Latinx poets (some of whom are also, of course, disabled) go through something similar. "It's niche." No it's not. "It's universal. It's mythic. It's epic." #CripPride #Latinx

Last night, news broke after a whistleblower exposed that #ICE is forcibly sterilizing women in its camps, many of whom are Indigenous Central & South Americans. This is horrific, but it’s hardly surprising. Let’s examine why. THREAD 1/x
The US has a long history of forcibly sterilizing #BIWOC & indigent & mentally ill women, in addition to its long history of committing acts of #genocide against #BIPOC through the theft, forced displacement, & sale of children. See Laura Briggs, Taking Children. 2/x
But eugenics & #colonialism are not only part of #UShistory, the US was the template for a number of Nazi projects. Timothy Snyder argues successfully in Black Earth that Hitler’s concept of lebensraum, or living space, was a colonial model based upon US Western Expansion. 3/x

I’m seeing terrible hot takes about the word #Latinx. there are:

-Black Latinas saying that “Latinx” (but not Latina/o? 🤔) erases Blackness.
-white + non-Black Latinos complaining about destroying spanish.
-and ahistorical folks saying Latinx is too academic.

YES, of course Latina/o/x erases Blackness. the *literal entire project of Latinidad* is meant to flatten and erase Blackness. but be consistent. if you’re going to call yourself Afro-Latina/o, let trans, nonbinary, queer folks have langauge to describe our/their experiences.
we don’t care about “ruining” spanish with the x. I have no allegiance to spanish. it is the language of our colonizers and was forced on my ancestors through violent force. if we want to create more expansive language, GREAT.

Dr. Grace Yeh speaks about the importance of knowing our histories as #AsianAmericans, but also the necessity of responsibility & care for other communities of color & indigenous peoples. #Ethnicstudies
I also love learning about Dr. Yeh and her work, like the "Filipino Love Stories" project to highlight immigrant lives on the central coast:…
Dr. Yeh talks about the history of #AsianAmerican studies, of ethnic studies, highlighting the solidarity in the early movement & work of the TWLF, their demands & that #ethnicstudies wasn't just about diversity & multiculturalism but power & empire

I'm a #LatinX physician, taking care of #LatinX patients with #COVID19.

I've been so surprised at how people are surprised by data showing #COVID19 is disproportionately affecting marginalized communities that till now I didn't know how to respond.

Some thoughts:

2/The implications of these #disparities run far deeper than simple differences in rates of morbidity and mortality. I applaud all of those shedding light on these #inequities, but we need action, and we need it now. @valstonemd @drlouiseivers #COVID19 #SDOH
3/A majority of our #EssentialWorkers, our #FrontLineHeroes, come from minority communities; these are the individuals putting themselves at risk to do the invisible work without which our society would collapse. @JoiaMukherjee #COVID19

Critical information in this report that needs to be shared as widely as possible: The Trump Regime's attempt to include a "Citizenship Question" in this year's census was rejected by the Courts. But its intended damage was already done and still remains.
The chilling effect on #Latinx communities of Trump's and the #GOPs attempts to corrupt the Census threatens a Census undercount that could defraud diverse states of Congressional representation and a fair share of Federal tax dollars.
The #Latinx and other groups working to defuse these fears and encourage participation could use support from the rest of us. Here's a Google list of links to outreach efforts across the country.

1. Why am I going after @BernieSanders? I caucused for him in March 2016. Later, I spotted the Russians helping him and by July 2016 I posted what I saw. See my pinned Tweet. I never believed that Sanders and Manafort's partner Devine didn't know. They had to know if I did.
2. Then last week Sanders admitted he knew for the month he was moving up in the polls that the Russians were working to help him AGAIN and AGAIN he kept his mouth shut while they did their work. Fool me once. . . @JoeBiden @MikeBloomberg @PeteButtigieg @amyklobuchar
3. Our election has already been influenced by criminal foreign intelligence conspiracy. We can't afford to have zombie candidates elect a Russian asset. We appreciate the work and the policy focus of the folks who ran in @TheDemocrats nomination but only Biden and Bloomberg are

hellohellohello! The #GivingTuesday thread is here! No shortage of causes to care about. Pick something that won’t leave you alone; then, volunteer, donate $, and/or advocate to your elected official. Here are some orgs that my family donates to:
Independent journalism is the backbone of any social movement & change. @cpipr does that & more for 🇵🇷.
The @cpipr investigation led to uncovering over 4k died as result of #HurricaneMaria; brought corrupt chats to public from the [now former!] Governor, ignited massive peaceful public protests until he resigned; every day they produce unbiased reporting.

#DearFilipinoAmericans Since FB & IG are down, let’s have a conversation on Twitter. Many people have asked me if we should start using #Filipinx. I’ve shared my answer privately, but maybe we should talk about it publicly. Here’s a thread of some initial thoughts. 1/17
The pros of #Filipinx are obvious. It is an acknowledgement of looking beyond the gender binary; it models after the #Latinx movement; and it moves beyond the tradition of centering masculine/male identities. For these reasons, some say the term is a sign of decolonization. 2/17
Some historical context: in the 80s & 90s, many people started to use #Pilipino as a way of acknowledging the lack of “F” in precolonial Pilipino alphabet. One is my first academic papers is on Pilipino American identity. 3/17…
