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.

Rappel: on peut s'identifier dans plusieurs orientations sexuelles appartenant au spectre asexuel, car l'asexualité est un parapluie d'orientations sexuelles diverses, ayant pour point commun que l'on ne ressent pas d'attirance sexuelle, ou peu, ou à certains moments. (2/15)
Asexualité: orientation sexuelle où la personne ressentira peu, pas du tout, ou dans certains cas seulement, une attirance sexuelle.

Asexuel.le: personne ne ressentant pas d'attirance sexuelle.

Hey Twitter! This is @SaraRamirez, artist and proud Mexican Irish American #immigrant #bisexual #queer #woman. To mark #BiHealthMonth, I’m doing an #HRCTwitterTakeover to talk about the need to address #biphobia and #bi-erasure. #BHAM18 Sara Ramirez takes over the HRC Twitter in honor of Bisexual Health Awareness Month.
Those of us who love more than one sex/gender use many different labels, but we share a common experience: our presence makes people uncomfortable. Our very existence as #bisexual threatens heteronormativity and the gender binary. —@SaraRamirez #HRCTwitterTakeover
#Bisexual, #queer, #pansexual, #fluid, non-monosexual folk are the single largest group within the #LGBTQ community, and we come in all Pantone shades, all genders, and no gender. We're trans, cis, nonbinary. We're ✨everywhere ✨. —@SaraRamirez #HRCTwitterTakeover Bisexuals are the single largest group within the LGBTQ community.

#Transsexualism and the Destruction of #Lesbians
In the late 1980s and 1990s an epidemic of female-to-male (#FTM] #transsexualism began in Western countries. Women who had previously identified as #butchlesbians, or been afraid to identify as #lesbians despite loving women, began to opt for surgical mutilation.
I call this the destruction of #lesbians, because lesbians are physically destroyed in this surgery, and their #lesbianism is removed along with #femalebodyparts.

#Lesbian critique of #queer theory
In the last few years, queer theory and its implications for political action have been subjected to critiques from some gay sociologists who have not been prepared to abandon their materialist analyses for the delights of post-structuralism, as well as from lesbian feminists.
These critics have argued that queer theory is the child of a certain anti-liberation historical moment, and is therefore individualist and anti-materialist as well as sexist.

On #Gender and #queer theory and practice
The Foucauldian notion of ‘transgression’ is central to queer theory. Within queer theory the idea of revolutionary activism that might challenge the MATERIAL POWER DIFFERENCES between the sexes,
has been replaced by the idea, derived from Judith Butler’s work, that ‘transgression’ on the level of dress and performance is REVOLUTIONARY and will bring down the ‘gender’ system.

A friend sent me this and asked me to share to protect their anonymity -- very important info for Boston #queer #trans #LGBTQ community about @FenwayHealth:

Content Warning: Suicide, medical abuse, sexual assault, self-harm.

#QTPoC #SDQTPoC #AbleismExists
"I'd like to take a few minutes of your time to warn you about a dangerous psychiatrist at Fenway Behavioral Health, Dr. Howard Hernandez. I apologize for not writing this sooner, but I didn't feel ready to share this until now."
"About thirteen months ago I saw Dr. Hernandez for the first time. It was an initial intake visit, so much of our time was taken up by completing my history."

Do you believe that transgender people "reinforce the gender system"? Well no worries, I will disabuse you of that silly notion in 3 steps!
1) You know the things transgender people do that seem "gender-reinforcing" to you? Well cisgender people do those things all the time too!
In fact, the overwhelming majority of gender-conforming people are cisgender, not transgender. So why are you picking on trans people then?
