This is just one person's story: . Ask yourself what kind of person *ignores* such realities or refuses to acknowledge that the claim that such people comprise only 2-4% of the population is based on the bullying/intimidation committed by #Trans 1/x
"activists" against anyone who dares speak out like this brave young woman. We know this bullying/intimidation extends to "#Trans" people, to their families, and to any researcher or clinician who would like to study such important issues (e.g., ). I 2/x
really hope that *reasonable* and *honest* people will appreciate just how ignorant, "deluded" (n.a.d.), self-serving, "narcissistic" (n.a.d.), misguided, self-righteous etc. someone has to be to ignore the realities that I and my guests have conveyed in my numerous videos. I 3/x

After dealing with #Trans "activists" for the past few days (if anyone wants to subject my multi-tweet threads to the "roll up the app" or whatever it's called, as you did earlier today, I would appreciate it), and seeing the same attitude, tactics and sleight of hand each 1/x
time, let me show you one more reason why I am doing what I am doing, even though it's taking up all of my time: . This is a mother who has heard from many parents whose experiences w/"gender affirming therapists" is much different from what the 2/x
aforementioned #Trans "activists" would have you believe. *They* will never accept the reality of these stories b/c they are too *personally* invested in their ideology and their *personal* "cause." Now, some of these "activists" will claim I am merely engaging in ad hominem 3/x

For anyone who has read my extensive tweets and *still* inexplicably does not understand my concerns abt #Trans ideology and “activists”—which suggests you are unintelligent, ignorant and/or blinded by a hateful and/or self-serving ideology/agenda—let me draw some parallels 1/x
that might help explain: If I were an MD and I knew the sugar lobby was lying abt cholesterol, I would be exposing this far and wide. I would do the same if the APA was pushing conversion therapy for gays and I could show it is harmful to them (this was before my time but I 2/x
do talk about such things in my classes). More recently, before the DSM-5 came out, I gave many MSM interviews highlighting the concerning process and some of the proposed (potentially) problematic disorders. The point is, psychologists have an ethical duty to serve society 3/x

The current dialogue about #DACA affects everyone in the US. How?

#Racism & #scapegoating & affect all minorities.

Deporting #DREAMers & undocumented #immigrants will have very negative impacts to the #economy. That affects everyone else. THREAD 1 #DreamActNow #immigration
The sociological concept of the “other” is important to this discussion. If you haven’t heard of it before, here is a brief overview from othersociologist.com/otherness-reso…. 2 #identity #race #sociology #Science
People in power define social identities as they have the means to control the narrative – news coverage, platforms to broadcast their platforms, & the power to influence law enforcement and legislation. Social identity affects how people perceive themselves and others. 3

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."

For #TransDayofRemembrance I want to tell you a story.

Last Nov/Dec, I was homeless. @realDonaldTrump had just been elected. I was living in my car. I was cold. I was hungry. The pain from my chronic lower back issues was horribly bad, every moment of every day (1/x)
Sleeping in my car was making it worse. I could barely stand, let alone go grocery shopping or walk longer than about 10 min, w/o being totally wiped out for the next day or 2. I was receiving no medical treatment for being #trans, for my #AtrialFibrillation or my back pain (2/x)
I was unemployed, had no degree, didn't pass, and I was severely depressed.

Only a few ppl know this, but I think it's time to talk about it. I almost died last December. I didn't have much $, but I was doing research on the best methods to kill myself that'd be effective (3/x)

So, ich werde jetzt ein bisschen über das Thema #Brustkrebs schreiben, und wie schwer es ist, damit einen sinnvollen Umgang zu finden, für mich als #trans Frau, die generell große Unsicherhheiten mit Ärzten und Telefonaten hat.

Das könnte ein langer Thread werden.
Zu Beginn: ich habe seit mehreren Jahren Beschwerden mit meinen Brüsten. Wegen mangelnder Aufklärung hatte ich die lange Zeit nicht mit Brustkrebs assoziiert, inzwischen tu ich das.

Ich habe diesen Dienstag erfahren, dass ich gesund bin. Angeblich, zumindest.
In meiner Jugend sind mir keine Brüste gewachsen. Ich wurde als Junge groß gezogen, entsprechend gab es in der Zeit kein Aufklärungsgespräch über ("mein") Brustwachstum oder ähnliches. Ich weiß bis heute nicht, wie viel cis Mädchen dazu in der Pubertät erfahren.
