Why do all therapists need to know how to talk respectfully about sexuality and gender identity? I was interviewed for a podcast for the first time and was asked this question, but I found myself tripping over my words! So here goes #TherapistsConnect 1/
Firstly, #therapy research shows that #LGBTQ plus and other Gender, Sex and Relationship Diverse (GSRD) people tend to self-censor in therapy and assume that talking about sexuality and gender identity is "off limits". Why is this? 2/
Well, #LGBTQ plus people grow up surrounded by #homophobia, #biphobia and #transphobia (yes, it still exists folks, both in the UK and in other contexts). Most of us internalise it to some extent, and many learn to protect ourselves by staying quiet about "being different". 3/

America’s law enforcement is still full of people like Sal at almost every level. There are dirty judges, prosecutors, and legislators all across the country.

What are we going to do about it!?

Unfortunately, “Continue to let them rule us” seems to be the consensus today.
If my assessment here sounds a little far-fetched to some of you, it’s because you haven’t been paying enough attention in the right places. Corruption is rampant in America!
We have a culture of corruption in the United States, and it’s being exploited by foreign criminals and domestic criminal collaborators for total control. Democracy loving people everywhere need to educate themselves/others on the identities of these criminals and their tactics.

According to reports, a handful of Republican staffers & legislatures @MoGov statehouse pressured the @mohistorymuseum to remove an exhibit on #KansasCity’s #LGBTQ History. I helped curate the exhibit. Here’s what you need to know. /1…
@MoGov @mohistorymuseum The exhibit is called “Making History: Kansas City & the Rise of Gay Rights.” It documents how in 1966 early gay rights activists met in KC in what became the first national LGBTQ meeting. You can read the exhibit here. /2
@MoGov @mohistorymuseum The exhibit is a work of scholarship. It was curated by students in my @UMKC “Public History” class in 2016 & was intended to raise awareness about a new marker installed in downtown KC commemroating the 1966 meeting. /3…

Sorry to those that follow me for snarky political and real estate and soccer takes. The following is a serious thread about #BYU and #MormonStuff and our #LGBTQ friends and family
I have had some feedback about my comments on Elder Holland’s talk and think it appropriate to further elaborate.
I have also seen my more conservative friends stating that what Holland said was not being taken with the spirit of love it was intended.

1 Buch, 42 Mitautoren, 135 mal verkauft = riesen Sprengkraft

Wie kommt es, dass führende #CDU Politiker (#Ziemiak, #Schröder, #Laschet, #Haseloff) zusammen mit Rechtsextremen und christlichen Fundamentalisten ein Buch schreibt und die #KonradAdenauerStiftung das unterstützt?
Den Thread bitte lesen, lesen, lesen und teilen.
Wie tief reichen eigentlich die #LGBTQ + frauenfeindlichen, fundemantalchristlichen Netzwerke, mit tendenziösem Hang zur Verbrüderung mit Neofaschisten in die #CDU/#CSU hinein?

Immerhin schaffen sie es in Staatskanzleien, Ausschüsse und Gremien.

Nicht nur Parteiintern.

Suzanne Moore discovered a letter condemning the new transphobia in the @guardian had been written & signed by a significant number of the the staff. She leaked the letter with all of the names, & quit in a snit to write for the Spectator & the Torygraph.
Suzanne Moore watched a video of a bigot wearing bigot-merch proclaiming his membership of anti-trans hate group LGB Alliance, in which the #LGBTPride crowd chanted "Trans Lives Matter" & the bigot stopped the march to shout back & was then removed by police liaisons. /2
Suzanne Moore's conclusion was not "When on a march, you keep walking with the crowd, because if you obstruct or stop the march deliberately you can get removed from the march by the police" - as any #LGBTPride or other protest marcher could have told her! - but instead ... /3

Right-wing thugs with the Proud Boys have gathered in Portland. They got chased out of downtown and are now rallying in the parking lot of a shuttered Kmart. Their hate is not welcome here. It's a small crowd of violent people. #DoJustice
The Proud Boys had planned their hate rally to start at 2pm. So far all we’ve heard is a request from an organizer asking for help finding his iPhone. Wonder what is on it...
The Proud Boys have seemingly taken over this park lot. No @PortlandPolice here. Plenty of these guys. ⬇️

Just a reminder that the spouse of @WowBao’s @LettuceEats Chef/Partner Tim Hockett wants your children to get COVID 🤷‍♂️

How do we know the restaurants Tim manages obeys COVID restrictions meant to keep customers and staff safe?

@RJMelman @mollymelman @JerrodMelman
Tim and Jessica Hockett also don’t want your children to be taught LGBTQ individuals deserve equal rights

If you support #LGBTQ rights, DO NOT support @WowBao or any other @LettuceEats restaurant. Chef Partner designates profit sharing & who wants their $$ going to homophobes?
Jessica Hockett is sharing the stage with a known Proud Boy associate in her attempt to infect your children with COVID.

Are you ok with this @LettuceEats? @EmilyLauren77 @JerrodMelman @RJMelman @mollymelman

A lot of why I run this account, with as much honesty as I can muster, is because I truly believe that by being openly and passionately myself, I can help humanize trans people against the literal armies of those who want to dehumanize us.
I make myself vulnerable, often to those exact people who want to dehumanize and villify me, in order to show you that trans people are real. We aren't a hashtag, or a wedge issue, or a fetish. We're living, breathing human beings, with hopes and fears and lives we live.
I try to keep this account positive. I try to showcase trans joy, and success, and how much love trans people have to give.
But I'm afraid.
We're all so, so afraid.

2 weeks ago today I was arrested by Gardai, kept in a small room for 5 hours with severely high temperatures, no windows open, no air conditioning, no fan.
I was interrogated about my campaign work, accused of hating religion, asked to disclose information about journalists.
I was mocked, asked if I could spell my address properly.
I was followed to toilet by gard whilst washing ink from fingerprints off my hands.
I was forced to give my DNA even when I said I DO NOT consent.
I was asked about #Holocaust #HolocaustDeniers
Asked to provide evidence.
#Irish police, state @GardaTraffic are trying to bring Incitement to hatred, harassment charges against me because I spoke out against #HolocaustDeniers living in my hometown #WestCork
Their leader is a convicted Holocaust Denier, they are #COVID19 deniers too.

Es ist übrigens nicht Verwunderlich das .icefiredhd seine Solidarität mit Personen wie #Nena zeigt. Auch leugnet er weiterhin die Gefährlichkeit vom #Coronavirus. Testen tut / lässt er sich nicht, auch vom Maske tragen hält er realtiv wenig.
Das eine Person, welche innerhalb von anarchistischen und antifaschistischen Bewegungen aktiv ist, Corona leugnet, macht mich nur fassungslos und schockiert mich zugleich.
Fassungslos gerade weil, der 18jährige Sohn einer Arbeitskollegin mitte letzten Jahres mehrere Wochen durch Corona auf der Intensivstation lag.
Jung, Sportler, ohne Vorerkrankung. Aber das #Coronavirus ist „nicht gefährlicher als eine Grippe“.

Als schwuler Mann empfinde ich es als besonders perfide, wie rechtsradikale Schreiberlinge das #LGBTQ-Gesetz von Viktor #Orbán, das gegen die Rechte sexueller Minderheiten gerichtet ist u. sexuelle Aufklärung als Gefahr für Kinder darstellt, zum „Anti-Pädophiliegesetz“ framen. /1
Dieses menschenverachtende Gesetz von Viktor #Orbán verbietet die bloße (auch nur neutrale) Darstellung von Homo- und Transsexualität in der Öffentlichkeit und indiziert entsprechende Filme und Bücher. /2……

Wie der staatlich kontrollierte Aufklärungsunterricht aussehen wird, macht diese Episode aus 2019 deutlich. In einer harmlosen Werbung, die ein homosexuelles Paar abbildete, sah d. ungarische Konsumentenschutzbehörde eine „Beschädigung der moralischen Entwicklung von Kindern“. /3

1/ @GarnettGenuis You are completely unfit to be a representative of the people as you are completely ignorant of & lack any empathy for the lived experiences of many people that do not hold your (religious) worldview.
I am NOT saying it is OK to vandalize & or destroy property >
2/ > AND neither did the person you are dishonestly trying to score cheap political points against in your tweet. What we ARE saying is it is possible to imagine lived experiences so painful & so difficult that someone may resort to such an action.
"Understanding" ≠"Condone".
3/ > Let me tell you a story. In my local community a really great progressive church offered the local #LGBTQ youth group to hold it's regular meetings in a room at the church for free.
Except they had to stop holding the meetings at the church.
Why do you think?

this is a good piece about Sylvie as a metaphor for Disney's invisibilizing #LGBTQ characters in the MCU universe... (FYI spoilers for yesterday's episode)
...@nberlat also cites my piece from last week (see:…), and makes an even better case that the creators may have intended Sylvie to be a trans allegory...
...I also want to add yet another piece of evidence for my thesis that unconscious transphobia is driving at least some people's dislike of the Loki-Sylvie pairing...

Like Ghoulia Heartless-Spewer reads books.

Every cloud @Waterstones. 👍
I quite like Waterstones, but in May 2011 it was announced that A&NN Capital Fund Management, owned by Russian billionaire Alexander Mamut, had bought the chain for £53.5 MILLION, & in April 2018, hedge fund 'Elliott Management Corporation' bought a majority stake in the company.
Elliott Management Corporation is a US investment management firm - a vulture fund - founded by hard-right Republican donor Paul Singer, who supports pro-Israel causes, funding for the libertarian free-market Manhattan Institute for Policy Research, &, curiously, #LGBTQ rights.🤔

It is time for men to learn from women how to play football.
1/ #ItsComingHome #EURO2020 #CopaAmerica
In 2015, I went to the quarter final and the semi final of the women's World Cup in Montreal and saw the US beat France in the former and beat Germany in the latter.

If queer is the opposite of heteronormativity, it was the queerest--and joyously so--sporting environment.
The stands were full of outsiders: women with babies, teenage girls-- a demographic I rarely see in televised men’s games--with their faces painted in the colors of their teams and men there alone. #ItsComingHome #Euros2021 #CopaAmerica2021 📷 @rerutled Mona with red hair and a pa...

I remember lists of queer players during the Women's World Cup. Where are the lists of openly gay and bisexual men's footballers in this weekend's #EURO2020 final and #CopaAmerica finals?
How when we know that at least 10 percent of any population belongs to the LGBTQ+ community, is there not a single out player in the men’s top leagues while the women’s game has a long history of openly gay players?

Patriarchy. That’s how.…
Sampdoria and Sweden star Albin Ekdal in 2019 on the lack of openly gay men in professional football. @ekdalalbin

@eduardoleite te enviamos um forte abraço, saiba que você não estará sozinho daqui para frente. Há espaço para todos embaixo do arco-íris, para nós o tesouro não está no final - está no caminho - falamos de direitos e o principal deles é o direito de ser livre e de viver
Nossa mensagem é de extrema sinceridade e amor.

A democracia, Eduardo, é a nossa luta, nascemos por ela e por ela vivemos. Foi em nome dela que alertamos o #ELENAO, e foi por ela, que ainda sim, elegeram o nosso algoz.
Pessoas da nossa comunidade, Eduardo, votaram e apoiavam ele até pouco tempo atrás, foi triste e doloroso ver gays democratas fazerem isso. Contudo, também é por ela, pela Democracia brasileira, que não guardaremos mágoas, afinal não se trata de um, mas de muitos.

🏳️‍🌈 Ruth Coker Burks 🏳️‍🌈
“In 1984, when Burks was 25 & a young mother living in Arkansas, she would often visit a hospital to care for a friend who had cancer. During one visit, she noticed the nurses would draw straws, afraid to go into one room, its door sealed by a big red bag.
She asked why and the nurses told her the patient had Gay-Related Immune Deficiency (GRID), later known as AIDS. On a repeat visit, and seeing the big red bag on the door, Burks decided to disregard the warnings and sneaked into the room.
In the bed was a skeletal young man, who told her he wanted to see his mother before he died. She left the room and told the nurses, who said, "Honey, his mother’s not coming. He’s been here 6 weeks. Nobody’s coming”. Burks called his mother anyway, who refused to come visit her

#CristoLGBT thread / Premessa: non è una gara a chi l’ha fatto prima o dopo (anche perché Avoja a rappresentazioni “blasfeme” ai Pride! Evviva!) anzi è affermazione che facciamo queste cose, in certi momenti, quando più ci sentiamo sotto attacco. ⤵️ Image
#orgoglio #ostentazione di @Andrea414 e @porporamarcasciano a #romapride2021 per me è ciò che siamo. Irriverenza ma anche smascheramento in maschera delle maschere altrui. Sono tanto friendLY MA Hanno tanti amici gay MA Non hanno niente contro MA … ⤵️ Image
Queste foto sono state scattate a #pompeipride2018 Avevo fatto da poco #comingout come persona #transgender e quel #pride🌈 era stato duramente attaccato dai #fascisti di #forzanuova
