🧵Today a committee in the Texas Senate will take up bills to ban gender-affirming care for minors. This is the first time they'll debate this legislation this year.

I've been covering transgender youth in Texas for years. Here's some of what I've learned.
#txlege #LGBT #LGBTQ
2/ In 2017, the focus in Texas was on the "bathroom bill." Parents of trans kids mobilized to fight it.

"You don’t know my kid. You don't know what he's gone through just to be himself," one Dallas mom told me at the time.… #txlege #LGBT #LGBTQ
3/ The bathroom bill failed, and 2019 was a bit quieter on the legislative front when it came to transgender legislation.

In 2021, state legislators passed a law requiring high school athletes to play sports according to their sex at birth.… #txlege

Texas just filed its appellate brief in the case it's fighting against parents of transgender kids.

Gov't reiterates argument there hasn't been "any particular harm suffered" by families investigated for child abuse bc kids haven't been removed.… #txlege
The state of Texas' brief also argues two families with transgender kids no longer have standing to sue bc their investigations have been closed and with no finding of child abuse.

Background:… #txlege #LGBT #LGBTQ
Also Texas AG @KenPaxtonTX cites recent @nytimes stories about transgender youth to argue that puberty blockers and hormone therapy may be harmful.

A group of NYT contributors and LGBT advocates recently criticized the paper's transgender coverage… #txlege

Thread for ‘but is this happening in schools’ #Edutwitter. Yes it is. Firstly personal testimony: “the school nurse had referred her to the school counsellor [who] informed [her] that a hatred of one’s breasts could be an indicator of a non-binary”…
More testimony: “I am utterly horrified at what was taught at a PSHE lesson at my school recently. It was to a group of children, most are 11-12 years old. It is so, so much worse than I thought.” #Edutwitter #DiverseEd #LGBT…
More personal testimony: “We did request to see their transgender policy and it was kafkaesque – it repeatedly conflated sex & gender… & downplayed the effects of binders, blockers and hormones” #Edutwitter #WomeEd #PSHEPeeps…

#SB12 to ban children from being able to attend drag shows in Texas just referred to State Affairs.

This bill — plus legislation to ban gender affirming care for minors, restrict transgender college athletes and regulate library books — are all @DanPatrick priorities. #txlege
@DanPatrick Also: A bathroom bill of sorts (yes, it's back) was just referred to House Pub Ed.

It'd require schools to have a public policy about bathroom/locker facilities not separated by sex at birth that must specifically denote which facilities fall into this category.

#HB2722 #txlege Image
@DanPatrick Also recently filed: #HB4378 by @Toth_4_Texas to allow lawsuits against ppl who bring a minor to drag show that "violates the prevailing standard in the adult community for content suitable for minors."

It has a 10 year statute of limitations.… #txlege Image

NEW: A Texas Senate committee will debate legislation to restrict transgender athletes in collegiate sports today. You can watch the hearing live online and I will be live-tweeting about it.

Here is some background on the bill:… #txlege #LGBT #LGBTQ
This is the first bill that affects the LGBTQ community that is getting a committee hearing this session.

On Thursday, another Senate committee will debate banning gender-affirming care for minors. Both are priorities of Lt. Gov. @DanPatrick.… #txlege
@DanPatrick There are about 92,900 adult transgender Texans, according to one recent study.

According to a January 2022 report by Out Sports, 34 openly transgender athletes have competed in collegiate sports nationwide.… #txlege #LGBT #LGBTQ

Il filosofo politico russo Alexander Dugin spiega i doppi standard dell'Occidente liberale, che da un lato promuove da anni il nazionalismo radicale degli ucraini e dall'altro condanna ogni nazionalismo e patriottismo sul proprio territorio :
" L'Occidente pensa: non abbiamo altro modo per creare un nazionalismo artificiale in Ucraina e incitare gli ucraini a combattere contro i russi perché non sarebbero disposti a farlo.
Non sarebbero disposti a combattere per i valori liberali perché significano

assolutamente niente per gli ucraini di oggi"

Per le società tradizionali, i valori liberali non sono qualcosa da difendere. Ecco perché i "liberali globalisti" hanno creato e utilizzato la forma più radicale di nazionalismo, il fascismo russofobo ucraino.

#BREAKING Central Government opposes pleas in #SupremeCourt seeking recognition of same-sex marriage.

Decriminalisation of Section 377 IPC cannot give rise to a claim to seek recognition for same-sex marriage, Centre says in counter-affidavit.
#SupremeCourtOfIndia #LGBT
Living together of persons in same-sex relationships "cannot be compared to the Indian family concept of a husband, a wife and children born out of the union" , Centre tells #SupremeCourtOfIndia #SameSexMarriage #LGBTQIA
Statutory recognition of marriage limited to heterosexual in nature, is the norm throughout history and are foundational to both the existence and continuance of the State : Centre tells #SupremeCourtOfIndia #SupremeCourt #LGBTQI

Esistono gli studi di genere.
Ma non l’ideologia #gender, questa è una caricatura dei primi e dice: “Se sei femmina ti piace il rosa, se sei donna, sei destinata a diventare moglie”

Non è una legge di natura ma il risultato di un retaggio culturale.

#sanremo2023 🧵
Il #gender rientra in un universo meno rigido dove ognuno ha la possibilità di declinare la propria personalità

Il livello di natura biologico è complesso. È scientificamente provato che non esiste un mondo binario in natura, figuriamoci a livello giuridico, morale. ⬇️ #sanremo
Ci sono studi e ricerche che dimostrano come la natura biologica sia stata piegata e incanalata per scopi secondari, con concetti privi di fondamenti scientifici.
Le semplificazioni ci servono come strumento puramente descrittivo ma illudersi che siano così netti è ridicolo. ⬇️

Au surlendemain de la journée du 9 décembre #journeedelalaicite je voulais vous informer que j'ai accepté de devenir le nouveau Président de l'Union des #Familles #Laïques de #Metz. Cette responsabilité et l'investissement qu'ils demandent me font renoncer à mon engagement au
sein du mouvement #LGBT+ et notamment à mon mandat de Porte-parole de l'interassociative LGBT+ de #Paris IDF (Inter-LGBT).
Depuis maintenant plusieurs années j'ai essayé de faire comprendre que la #laïcité protègeait les personnes #LGBTQl+ et était avec la liberté de conscience
et d'expression des atouts précieux pour ce mouvement dans lequel j'ai investi de nombreuses années de ma vie.

Force est de constater qu'une défiance s'est installée concernant ces thématiques au sein de certaines organisations LGBT+ mais aussi au sein d'une partie de

Dear subscribers and guests of the channel! Yesterday, via video call, #Russian President Vladimir #Putin held an operational meeting with permanent members of the Russian Security Council. The primary purpose of the gathering is to calm down the "cunts".
1/10 Image
This way, #Putin calls a part of the Security Council that does not belong to the security forces and the military. The idea was to send a signal through them to the elites that, despite the strikes on military airfields in #Russia, everything is under control,...

and there is nothing to worry about. During the meeting, the President listened to the reports and gave instructions to strengthen security measures for strategic facilities and top officials of the state, including all participants in the meeting.

🛑 La #CoupeDuMonde au #Qatar suscite de nombreuses controverses (corruption, désastre écologique, ouvriers morts pour construire les stades…)
➡️ Mais 1 sujet n’est pratiquement jamais abordé: l’idéologie islamiste véhiculée par le 🇶🇦, y compris lors du tournoi.
1 thread ⤵️
2/ De nombreux articles se sont faits l’écho de ces controverses (exemple ici avec Le Monde). Mais presque aucun média n’a évoqué un autre sujet problématique : l’adhésion du #Qatar à l’idéologie des Frères musulmans et sa promotion de l’#islamisme.…
3/ L’une des rares à dénoncer cette situation a été @CarolineFourest. L’essayiste a ainsi revélé sur @LCI que des tentes sont installées aux abords des stades pour convertir les supporters à l’islam et que le #Qatar a formé 2000 personnes dans ce but.

This is important. Conversion therapy advocate, Stella O'Malley, offers "training" to psychotherapists, teachers & others. The professional organisations & unions need to get the hell off the fence & start protecting young LGBT people from these abhorrent practices! @IACP_ie
It is abhorrent for this event to go ahead in a week when 2 trans people & 3 others have been killed in an #LGBT bar, along with 3 others, & a trans woman was one of those who risked her own life to save others! Please let the organisers know how you feel!
We need to STOP THIS NOW! Stella O'Malley's allegedly "up-to-date thinking" has helped fuel a climate where trans rights are being rolled back in Florida, in Texas & in Britain. Her activities expose LGBT people, especially young LGBT people to grave danger. #EndConversionTherapy

1/ Here is an #ElectionDay thread about #Catholics and #democracy. You should read it all but here is the TLDR headline: Catholics have done our part to bring US politics to this point, and we need to fix it.

Let's begin with a long view.
2/ The #CatholicChurch spent 1900 years avoiding #democracy, quite comfortable with empire and monarchy. The closest the church ever got was the Council of Basel (1431-1449) that followed something like democratic procedure to challenge papal supremacy, suggested a conciliar...
3/ ...approach to the governance of the church. It did not succeed.

A century earlier Marsiglio of Padua had praised ideas very close to popular sovereignty & he remained "the accursed Marsiglio" into the 19th century.

Very little in Catholicism has pointed to #democracy.

Authorities held 2 brothers for months in basement cells and tortured them...

They forced them to film an “apology” video, which was posted online...
Then, they released them without charge...

...only to kidnap them later and force them into another confession.

“Now independent research has shown that the Welsh #RSE Code was influenced by elements of Queer Theory that should concern parents.” @WG_Education @childcomwales @LauraJ4SWEast @MerchedCymru @LGBAllies_Cymru @WRNWales #edutwitter #LGBT…
“Queer Theory is an academic field of study that aims to dismantle accepted social norms. This may not seem immediately concerning. However in this field any idea can be – and is – challenged, including the idea that children should not be sexually active.” #CurriculumForWales
“Queer Theory challenges boundaries that are put in place to preserve ‘oppressive’ ideas such as the importance of child safeguarding. This academic discussion is not something that should be allowed to direct the way schools teach children.” #CurriculumForWales #RSE #edutwitter

My coming out story as the first openly gay Saudi man:
My name is Abdulrahman Alkhiary and I was born by the Red Sea in Saudi Arabia. Education was a top priority to my parents, and despite my #ADHD and #Dyslexia, I succeeded in schools when we moved to the United States.
#NCOD Image
While at Kansas State University I excelled socially and scholarly, joining many organizations related to my Political Science major, and working as a legislative administrative assistant for a Kansas State Senator and a consultant to the Riley County Police Department.
On February 22 while living with my parents in Manhattan, Kansas, they asked me to a private meeting. This was odd because just a week earlier my parents and I met, and it was uncommon for us to meet two weeks in a row, so I became nervous. #NationalComingOutDay

A me dispiace ma non esiste nessun piano per i diritti #Lgbt+ a firma Draghi.
La Strategia Nazionale LGBTQ+ dell'UNAR, contenente gli impegni a sostegno della comunità arcobaleno è un progetto triennale finanziato con fondi europei che già esistono, a scadenza breve (un anno).
La Strategia è stata preparata e dovrebbe essere finanziata con fondi che l’UNAR ha chiesto alla Commissione Europea ben prima del governo Draghi. Esiste la strategia ma non per merito di Draghi⬇️
Ricordo che da Presidente del Consiglio non si spese né per il #ddlZAn né per la giornata mondiale contro l’#omotransfobia. No, non è neanche per merito della ministra Bonetti.⬇️
