I hope all #nonbinary people will have a lovely day and a great rest of the #NonbinaryAwarenessWeek! 💗

United, we are strong!!! ✨ Image
I'm already in July 14th because time zones (it's just past midnight here) so I am actually about to go to bed but I am looking forward to see posts from other nonbinary people for this celebration!!! 🥰
I love this rainbow popsicle shirt and the moment I saw it at the shop, I was like "I MUST OWN IT" 🤣

It looks even more queer in real life 😎✨

It’s #Pride and that means gatekeepers creep out of their holes. Woohoo /s Saw someone claiming that lesbianism is the sole attraction to non-men and that mspec and bi #lesbians are not valid. Let’s unpack that.

First & foremost: gatekeeping labels suck. Period. Don’t do that.
Otherwise you’re just an asshole. Don’t tell people how they have to label themselves just because your definition of a labels differs from theirs. Labels are not holy grales that have to be kept pure at all cost. What do you gain from it? Nothing but misery.
A definition can never cover 100% of one aspect. Never.

Furthermore: non-men is not the hot take you think it is. It’s forcing #genderqueer people into a binary that may not fit them. It’s plain misgendering and reduces inter, agender, genderfluid and #nonbinary identities to a

TY @innodim for inviting me to speak! My cognitive PEM wouldn’t let me be great but I appreciate her encouragement & summary! Want to be sure my main points are clear in re to Black Maternal #Mental Health, Perinatal Mood & Anxiety Disorders #PMADs, & disparities.#AIMART #BMHW22
I am no expert, so I'll share what I know. Black mothers are more at risk of #PMADs & are less likely to receive treatment b/c the structural social & economic inequities as a result of #antiBlack #racism & #misogynoir in this white supremacist patriarchal society.#BMHW22
“Close to 40% of Black mothers will suffer from postpartum depression [(PPD)]” OR ‘Systemic racism & sexism harm Black mothers which manifest as PPD for a reported ~40%.’ Addressing these risk factors associated w PMAD is key:
Lack of access to high-quality medical care

Hey researchers across this continent who write about non-binary folks, add to public information, and yet fail to include the sheer volume of writing and discussion of Indigenous scholars. Why? What are we doing wrong?

Or around gender diversity, if you prefer the distinction. I'm surprised (honestly a bit annoyed) by how many ECRs and HDRs who write about gender diversity and fail to include our work or reference our existence. I just went through a site focused on this w/out a single mention.
I think about the scholarship of Madi Day or Andy Farrell, for instance. Or the brilliant writings of Nayuka Gorrie or Ellen van Neerven or Hayden Moon. I mean I'm mentioning a few people who have added their thoughts for you to ignore.

What an incredibly bleak end to @TheGreenParty. It’s been a very difficult decision but I am cancelling my membership. 20yrs of voting 15yrs of membership wasted.
For clarity this weekend saw the @TheGreenParty rejecting a motion to kick out the TERFs and a motion, that in turn will legitimise a debate around conversion therapy. #translivesmatter
And on top of this, these so called feminists in @TheGreenParty also rejected a motion to hold an internal enquiry into claims of sexual harassment and assault within the party! #IWD #IWD2022

Hello Twitter! My name's Steve (pronouns: they/any 🏳️‍🌈 ) and I am currently a Visiting Researcher at the University of Leeds, funded by the @_ISRF and researching #disabled people's involvement in #cooperatives in the UK. My research website is
My profile on the @_ISRF website:…
This is a one-year research project, funded from September 2021 to Sept 2022, but I've only been able to "go public" and recruit participants now (Feb 2022) due to waiting for university ethics committee approval.
However, I am hoping that this research can continue in some form beyond the funded period, and I definitely intend my website to remain in existence as a resource for #disabled people and #cooperatives.

In one year, the Biden-Harris Administration has made significant progress in advancing equality and equity for #LGBTQI+ people. Below are some ways @POTUS and @VP have re-prioritized LGBTQI+ issues within government and brought LGBTQI+ people back to the table. (thread)
On day one, @POTUS signed an EO preventing and combating discrimination on the basis of gender identity or sexual orientation. This historic EO directed federal agencies to fully implement all federal laws to protect #LGBTQI+ people.…
In June 2021, the #BidenHarrisAdministration announced that Title IX prohibits discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity, reversing the prior administration’s stance. #LGBTQI+…

@Delta is discriminating against #nonbinary individuals and not allowing them to fly despite legal ID issued by states that allow X on birth certificates and state-issued IDs. This thread is the ongoing saga of me trying to purchase a ticket for my non-binary adult child. 1/x
Some context: TSA requires that the boarding pass reservation match your state issued ID. TSA accepts X as a gender marker on state IDs. The problem isn’t with TSA. The problem is airlines, like @Delta and @AlaskaAir #nonbinary 2/x #LGBTQ
I first discovered this problem when trying to make an online reservation to buy a ticket as a Christmas present for my #nonbinary adult child. The only gender options in @Delta and @AlaskaAir online reservation systems is male or female. 3/x #LGBTQ

Literally stop your "oh I'm so tolerant" #liberal shit because yes, Generation Y, sometimes you deserve to be shit on especially in the #USA/Americaland sector.

I did not expect that in the days between #biweek and the @BECAUSEConf, a leading representative from a #bisexual organization would painfully erase #pansexual people and reignite the tired #bisexual vs. #pansexual label wars on social media. But here we are.
At this time, I think it is important that #bisexual leaders who organize #bisexual, #pansexual, #queer, #fluid and otherwise #nonmonosexual (sometimes known as "bi+") communities online and/or in person speak out to affirm that #pansexual people are valid.
Some suggestions about how to avoid causing pain regarding labels. First, if you don't use a label, don't define it. Not #pansexual? Don't define #pansexuality. Not #bisexual? Don't define #bisexuality. This places definitional autonomy where it belongs: w/ ppl who use the label.

I've HATED this person. Actually, I've not loved them at all sometimes.

I've fed them lies and told them they weren't good enough and have allowed others to tell them they aren't good enough.

I've allowed them to be broken. I've allowed others to treat them disrespectfully.-
I've allowed them to run through brick walls and battle for others who won't even stand for them.

I couldn't stop others from abandoning them, but I've seen them stand up and be a light for the world and love others despite all that.

I have stood paralyzed by fear while they-
fought battles in their mind, heart and soul.

This person has screwed up many times as a partner, as a child, as a parent and as a friend because they didn't think they were worthy of self love or the love of others.

They have a smart mouth, a stubborn streak, and they have-

Hmm. Knowing a little about newspapers, it's quite possible David himself didn't write the headline and blurb - though the thrust of his review is clear, the direct reference to sex as a "social construct" is Joyce's quote: Image
I'm not so sure that isn't a #StrawMan; an extreme position being characterised as if it were the nub of the debate. I don't know, but can't imagine many would vehemently disagree with these commonly held definitions:

(Though I expect there are nuances.)
I first encountered grassroots #trans groups in the '00s when campaigning against @ukhomeoffice #IDcards & the #NationalIdentityRegister.

They were generous, tolerant & open - explaining to someone with no knowledge the many challenges of #transition, including living with an...

I would like to ask people to talk about “identities” instead of “labels” when talking about descriptions of yourself or others that are self-chosen and proudly-carried. I am thoroughly sick of saying people talking about “why label yourself”; “I don’t want to label my child” etc
when talking about important diagnoses such as #autism and #ADHD that are utterly essential to self-understanding and often become proud, self-chosen identities as a child grows up, and it’s even worse when people talk about #gender and #sexualities as “labels”.
Ultimately, “labels” have no function for the self; they exist purely for interactions with others. That doesn’t mean they can’t be useful and empowering, but to my mind it’s a huge misapprehension to describe #gender and #sexualities in this way and plays right into the idea

Folowing from Faran’s negative experiences with a #Buddhist group discussed yesterday, let’s examine some resources for #trans, #nonbinary, and #genderqueer folks and their sanghas, especially in relation to #JodoShinshu. #LGBTQ #Buddhism #shinbuddhism
@ray_moishe Ray Buckner provides advice for sanghas in making their space and practices more accessible for all practitioners (not Pure Land-based, but pretty universally applicable)…
You can take your sangha’s efforts further by implementing the recommendation of the breakthrough “Developing Trans*Competence guide”…

The first study is of #discrimination against #Trans and #Nonbinary people and racial and ethnic minorities in access to mental health care. This is joint with @elben, @LFumarco + others. Pilot results here 👇 2/N
The 2nd study builds on the 1st, as we seek to determine how #COVID19 has affected access to mental health care. When the pandemic surges, does appointment access decrease? (Very early results from the start of the pandemic suggest yes.) Joint w/ @LFumarco + @elben + others. 3/N

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

An important milestone for non-binary people today.…
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.
