1/thread: Had a brain-shattering convo with a teen about #pronouns. I think many adults poo-poo 💩 the topic, but I [an adult by any measure] have some alternative thoughts🙋.
2/thread: Alot of what the teen said was hard for me to understand. Ie, sometimes the teen prefers she/her; other times they/them. I was like, "How do we know which? How do YOU know which?" 🤔I could understand why older, set-in-their-ways folks wouldn't at ALL get it👀.
3/thread: But THAT thought--how older generations were raised with pretty linear🙈, narrow🙉, "accepted roles" 🙊(for men & women; for Americans & "foreigners," etc) made a💡turn on for me.

As we close out #PrideMonth, again w/o recognition by Trump, we must recognize the stakes.

The rights that so many have fought for are under assault.

Trump has already rolled back #LGBTQIA rights. It'll accelerate thru the Supreme Court.

Here's a list:
buzzfeed.com/dominicholden/…
Buzzfeed News lists the Trump Administration's anti-LGBTQIA actions - [see link for details]:

1. Saying it’s legal to fire workers for being transgender.

2. Arguing that it’s legal to fire workers for being gay.

3. Making transgender female prisoners live with male prisoners.
4. Telling the Supreme Court that shopkeepers can turn away LGBT customers.

5. Withdrawing protections for transgender students.

6. Refusing to investigate anti-transgender discrimination complaints in public schools.

7. Trying to kick transgender people out of the military.

Story time, #emptythepews edition.

Warning: suicidal ideation, depression, conversion therapy, unsupportive parents, Christian fundamentalism.

You have been warned.

Story begins in the next tweet.
1: Once upon a time in the late 90s, there were common websites, basic cable and magazines that put out various hotlines you could call in a crisis. If not, there were search engines where you could find the numbers to places like BoysTown and the Suicide Prevention Hotline etc.
2: My parents were SUPER controlling. So much so, that we felt the control in every little way, and suspected other means of control that we did not verify until we had all moved out.
Raised in the QF/ATI-adjacent communities, you can guess at what levels there were,.

50 Senators gave Kyle Duncan a lifetime position on the 5th Cir Court.
All of you just told the world you are as homophobic & transphobic as the POS in the WH.
All of you just told the world its ok if they are too. They have the courts & Congress behind them.
50 Senators
All 50 prove, once again, you not only approve of legalizing bigotry but work towards backing it every chance you get
All 50 of you prove you believe a large majority of American's should have their rights stripped away, again.
All 50 of you prove you condone hate vs. #LGBTQIA
To all 50 Senators, you are now personally responsible for every decision this "man" makes
To all 50 Senators, you are now personally responsible for every hateful word or act this decision causes.
Every single hateful act/word/belief you bolstered
You. Are. Responsible.
