This is the #DemPartyPlatform for 2020. This part is called: Protecting LGBTQ+ Rights

#Democrats applaud this year’s #SCOTUS decision that made clear that employment discrimination based on sexual orientation & gender identity violates the law, but we know we still have work to do to ensure LGBTQ+ people are treated equally under the law and in our society. 2/10
#Democrats will fight to enact the #EqualityAct and at last outlaw discrimination against LGBTQ+ people in housing, public accommodations, access to credit, education, jury service, and federal programs. 3/10 #DemPartyPlatform

📣 BREAKING NEWS: Non-Binary People Protected By U.K. Equality Act, Says Landmark Ruling Against Jaguar Land Rover
👏👏👏
An important milestone for non-binary people today. forbes.com/sites/jamiewar…
The tribunal said it was “clear… that gender is a spectrum” and that it is “beyond any doubt” that claimant’s identity fell within the definition.

“We hope this judgement works to reassure all current and aspiring non-binary professionals that our courts will insist on them being respected and protected in the workplace too." - @EnbyLawyer, Director of Legal and Policy, Mermaids.

Hey followers - there's over 3000 of you but we don't know each other very well.

For years now I've been sharing issues ranging from #disabilityrights, being #autistic in an #ableist society, to #vaccines, #MMIW, #alttext, #Dyslexia, #dyspraxic, #Epilepsy, #racism, #PTSD,
#depression, #domesticabuse being the cores of what I share and lands in your timelines.

I've recently shared with you all that I'm in a process of reclamation - my culture, my identity, my gender, my sexual preferences - all of it.

So now you know my skin is white passing
but I am also part #Aboriginal and that matters deeply to me and I won't be erased anymore.

I am #pansexual. I don't need you to be of any particular gender to be attracted to you.

I am a #nonbinary #femme. But I also lean heavy in masc traits sometimes too.

I am #disabled

What corporate diversity stats don’t tell you 🤔
[2/10] Let’s assume Company X releases its #diversityandInclusion stats. These will often be in the form of two pie charts: one for race and one for gender. You can clearly see the racial and gender breakdown of the entire company. But here’s what’s missing:
[3/10] #Intersectional Diversity: Identities don’t exist in silos - for these statistics to make sense, we have to see gender and race together, not on two separate diagrams. There is no information on the percentage of women of color at Company X

Sometimes when you're #ActuallyAutistic and teach yourself a skill b/c you love doing it - someone will hire you and you get paid to do what you love.

Not often, but sometimes.

I make magazines filled with my #neurosiblings hopes, fears and dreams.

I just released my 5th.
And with that release of #AALifeSpans, HEALTH, I've collected, edited, graphically designed and published over 30 unique #ActuallyAutistic people from all over the world.

@AutisticsAloud was a very well established newsletter when I was hired in 2017.

I took a chance and
said to @AutismNS, I want to make a magazine. They supported this elder #ActuallyAutistic #pansexual #nonbinary person in doing so.

I may be the Editor of #AutisticsAloud, but know this magazine is not mine.

It belongs to #AllAutistics.

It's what we make it ❤️ (heart emoji)

I've woken up very happy this morning. The sun is shining on a frosty morning here near Portsmouth and I'm reflecting on some very interesting and quite emotional chats I had on Twitter last night.

There's been a very simple, almost trivial, but powerful shift in my thinking.
I used to feel imprisoned by the macho male stereotype. I felt that I had to follow rules that I hated.

Now I realise that I was my own jailer, and I'd been sat in the cell with the key in my pocket, shouting to be let out.
So now I've realised that I *am* allowed to do some really quite trivial things (e.g. paint my finger nails) without that changing the fact that I'm a heterosexual male.

Do I need a label for this? Probably not. Would I say I'm #nonbinary? Well, I did last night.

If you enjoyed my Avatar Thread / #YubiViews / Anything else I do and u wanna support me, here's a small thread of how you can! You are never obliged to do so, and I am exceedingly grateful for all and any support in all its forms!

Let's go! 1/7
1) The simplest way? Retweet stuff. It helps so much! I do a lot of stuff in the #DnD and #TTRPG circles, so it's great when people see my stuff!

2) I have a Ko-Fi: ko-fi.com/itsyubi Slinging me a coffee means so much to me and I am so grateful for each one!

2/7
3) I have a podcast! It's a #ttrpg #podcast DM'd by me, a pan, #nonbinary human, with a main campaign in #DnD5e and loads of other systems! We're full of #LGBTQ rep in cast and story, we've got goofs, plot, giveaways, and spook galore! @TheMortalPath for eps!

THREAD: "What words or phrases come to mind when you think about seeking health care?" I asked #trans & #nonbinary folks in #TransHealthEthicsProject. This word cloud shows the overall sense of dismay. The individual responses are a gut punch. 1/n

#TransAwarenessWeek #bioethics
"Do I have to?
Will I die if I don't?
How much is this going to cost?"
---
"Embarassing. Humiliating. Judgmental."
---
"Anxiety. Being discovered. Not getting the care that I need. Not being believed. Becoming an experiment."

#TransHealthEthicsProject #TransAwarenessWeek
"Red fucking tape. Money I don't fucking have... difficulty paying for things, and always having to navigate a stupid sea of referrals and bureaucratic BS for getting a damn appointment."

In honor of the #Callisto6 finale this weekend, I am going to be posting something I've been meaning to for the last 3-ish weeks or so.

I am running a vanilla 1.14 Minecraft server for the #SuperPunks (if you're interested give me a yell in the fan discord), and did something...
The something being 20-odd #PRIDE flags in the form of Minecraft Banners. Some disclaimers:

There's only so much detail that can be put into a given banner, and I only have so much skill. As much as I would have loved to have a Philly PRIDE banner, it's beyond my abilities atm.
Right now it's basically me and one other person from the #Superpunks/#AuxCrew Discord on the Minecraft server, but other fans are welcome to join.

The server is Whitelisted, and I will only be handing out the IP on the Discord/via IMs. Dragon is dead, and most pets are tamed

In honor of Labor Day, here’s some free #trans labor for you: a solid three-step method to getting someone’s #pronouns right every time.

1. Hold yourself accountable for corrections. At first, you’re going to make mistakes. That’s not great, though it’s expected. BUT:
To gain competence, correct yourself every time.

This is not the time to do a big extensive apology or get in your feelings or start offering your thoughts about why you’re struggling. Just say “Sorry. SHE said...” Apologize briefly, correct, carry on. Every time.
2. Empower others to hold you accountable. Learning requires being correct *even when the person isn’t there to hear your error*. Ask all the relevant people - family, colleagues, friends, &c - to please remind you when you mess up. Then do step one again “Sorry, SHE said...”

Jack's Big Ol #nonbinary Selfie Thread, take 2 💛📸⚪👗💜👩‍🎤🖤
This is where thread #1 starts by the way, and also you're learning how linked lists work #queertech
By the way, I know it's usually a faux pas to retweet selfies, but I'd just like to preface this thread with:

👩🏼‍🎤 knock yourself out 👨🏼‍🎤

I put these on Twitter pretty much 50% for compliment fishing and 50% to be uncomfortably visible, so on both counts an RT encourages me.

Introducing my #the100dayproject inspired by @QMUNITY and my fellow #ADE @Sharon_Drummond. 100 days, 100 GIFs, 100 queer terms to educate and connect our community and allies. All GIFs created with #AppleKeynote and will be compiled on @GIPHY : giphy.com/channel/joepau… @AppleEDU
Day 1: QUEER - widely used among the community to refer to the spectrum of non-heterosexual +/ non-cisgender ppl as a shorthand. Important - this is RECLAIMED language that was/is still used as a hate term. #pride #education @QMUNITY @sogiUBC Follow along ———> #100daysofQueer
DAY 2: HETERONORMATIVE - social roles & structures that reinforce idea that heterosexuality is the presumed norm and is superior to other sexual orientations. #pride #education #sogi #humanrights @QMUNITY @sogiUBC @HRC

Follow along —-> #100daysofQueer created on #AppleKeynote

This #PrideMonth please remember that if your Pride event isn’t accessible, affordable, & inviting to trans people, non-binary folks & people of color then it’s not for the entire LBGTQIA community.
This means wheelchair accessibility. This means ASL interpreters. This means NO COPS. This means gender neutral restrooms. This means hosts who don’t make racist, sexist, ableist, transphobic, fatphobic or classist jokes.
Vet your venue. Vet your people. Make Pride great for all of us. Except straight people. Pride isn’t for straight people. (I mean, you can come I guess, but I’m not interested in making Pride comfortable for heteros. Don’t @ me on this)

Thread: I know it’s a small thing, but I just watched the new episode of @GreysABC where a patient character uses they/them #pronouns & Richard (@JamesPickensJR) struggles with it initially. While Jackson (@iJesseWilliams) doesn’t because, #WokeBae, duh.

popculture.com/tv-shows/2019/…
I know that for some viewers, this may have been their first introduction to #genderqueer & #nonbinary people or the concept of asking someone’s pronouns. It’s been happening in #queer & #feminist spaces for years. But this is mainstream. Majorly mainstream.
And for many genderqueer & non-binary folks, this may be the first time they’ve seen part of their experience represented on screen outside of smaller stage media*

How gender identity politics is endangering #WomensRights masquerading under the guise of “progressivism”- or in other words, as I said to this @notokyriarchy fatherfucker, an #MRA’s dream come true
- (thread)
I shouldn’t have to explain the realities of sex-based oppression in 2018! #Female is a biological sex. #Gender is the roles and norms that are imposed on those with female bodies to subjugate them to males for free sexual, domestic, and reproductive labor.
No matter how many genders a given culture had or recognized, somehow, the half of the group with a cock and balls (males) knew which other half of the group to forcibly impregnate (“#NonMen”, according to some). 🤔🤔🤔
