1/ What is the difference between #desire and #identity? Your desires and passions are of course an important part of who you are. For example, you can be a steak-lover, a dog-lover, or a hiking in the woods-lover. Or you can be all of those.
2/ You might have an obsession with fashion, or you might be obsessed with playing a particular computer game. When desire, passion, and obsession cross the line into addiction, that of course is also part of who you are.
3/ You might be an alcoholic, or a drug addict, or you might be a compulsive shoplifter or gambler. But they are all part of who you are, at least in the moment. But to what extent to these things cross over into identity?

Postei sobre projeto de empregos a pessoas #trans. Recebi mensagens duras: COTA PRA TRAVESTI; TENHAM COMPETÊNCIA; CABIDE DE EMPREGO; PRIVILÉGIO... Nisso noto o sofrimento dos #transexuais...
Da mesma maneira que julgam o aborto de uma menina de 10 anos, acham que trans vive na👇🏻
rua porque quer. Imagine-se trans, posto pra fora de casa, alijado de educação formal e instrução profissional desde muito jovem: ninguém costuma dar emprego p/ trans e, ainda, indignam-se porque se prostituem e vivem num aubmindo.
Você contrataria uma pessoa trans para limpar👇🏻
sua casa, trabalhar em seu escritório, recepcionar seus clientes, ser seu assistente ou chefiar um departamento?
Raríssimas exceções, a resposta é e sempre foi quase sempre não.
Por isso, acredito em parceria entre o público e o privado para ajudar uma população ABSOLUTAMENTE👇🏻

I just read the authors note, introduction, and chapter 1 of @AbigailShrier's new book about #trans youth. I'll continue to update as I make progress, but here are the inaccuracies I've found so far. Image
First, according to the "author's note," Shrier did not interview any of the trans adolescents themselves for the book, only their parents. She changes story details so that the adolescents themselves will not be able to recognize themselves and point out any flaws in the stories Image
Shrier claims "in most cases-nearly 70%-gender dysphoria resolves." This is not true. The studies referenced used the old diagnosis of "gender identity disorder (GID)," not gender dysphoria. One can meet GID criteria and be cisgender; DSM-5 gender dysphoria diagnosis changed this

THREAD:
Ich erlebe oft, dass Leute sehr unsicher sind, wie sie mit mir über das Thema trans* sprechen können. Entweder weil sie sich nicht auskennen, oder weil sie nicht wissen, welche Begriffe sie verwenden können, ohne mich zu verletzen.
Hier ein paar Tipps:
#trans #transmann
(Disclaimer: Das alles ist selbstverständlich subjektiv. Jeder Mensch ist anders. Jeder trans* Mensch auch! Seid lieb zueinander! )
1.) Wenn Du eine sehr private Frage hast, überleg Dir vorher, ob Du diese Frage auch einer cis Person stellen würdest. Wenn nicht, ist es wahrscheinlich keine gute Idee, sie zu stellen - besonders bei Themen wie etwa meinem Sexleben oder meinen Geschlechtsteilen.

Manuela è stata colpita con 50 coltellate.
50. Proviamo a contarle. Una fino a cinquanta.
Manuela era una donna trans. Non c’è da ripercorrere le indagini, sostituirsi a chi le sta facendo per capire che si tratta di un omicidio transfobico.
#transfobia serve parlarne.
#lgbt
Diciamo che la notizia arriva in un tempo in cui la comunità #trans viene presa particolarmente di mira, accusata di qualsiasi nefandezza.
Che domani (già oggi nelle agenzie) leggeremo titoli orrendi che punteranno a cancellare tutta la sua vita.
⬇️
Negare ciò che era, cancellare con una parola sbagliata ("uomo", "un trans", "prostituta trans") un percorso di vita, sputarci sopra, ucciderla due volte.
A proposito del lavoro di Manuela.
Era una scelta.
Una persona trans non nasce prostituta. ⬇️

A thread on #Detrans

I just went down the rabbit hole a bit. This list is hardly exhaustive... but here are a few people that call themselves Detransitioners or Desisters.

Many have very compelling stories. I encourage you to read them to see how the system failed them.
I often wonder at the damage that the #Trans community is doing to real people, in selling a one-size-fits, quick-fix solution to many young people.

The stories are heartbreaking. But these people are amazingly strong for finding and loving themselves again.

Thanks for sharing.

Today, July 4th, recognizes a day of rebellion in 1776 when 13 colonies adopted the Declaration of Independence, declaring autonomy, freedom and self-determination from, what some would call, the tyrannical rule of Great Britain. archives.gov/founding-docs/… (1/8)
This day of independence was spurred by a series of major acts of defiance to British rule over the now American colonists. (2/8)
Other acts of rebellion and defiance, like the 1773 Boston Tea Party protest, when American colonists who were fed up with Britain for “taxation without representation,” dumped 342 chests of imported British tea into the Boston harbor. (3/8) history.com/topics/america…

Having studied several articles as part of the #PeriodsandPatrakars campaign, we have come upon a pattern in the reportage around menstruation in India. This #Thread hopes to evoke and sensitize stakeholders to undertake measures to responsibly report on menstruation.
There are 2 main categories of improvements the media can make:
A.Use Inclusive Language and Evidence Base
B.Expanding the Range of Issues Covered
A.1) Inclusive Positive Language

Across several articles reviewed, it was noticed that when talking about menstruation, the subjects are always referred to as a binary word ‘woman’ rather than its more inclusive alternative ‘menstruators’.

‼️Affront on #trans rigjts in Romania‼️
On June 16th, the Romanian Senate approved a bill which forbids any discussions in Romanian schools and universities related to gender theory. The bill forbids „activities meant to promote gender identity theory that defines gender /1
as a concept different from biological sex; and gender & sex as not always the same thing.” The bill thus further marginalizes the transgender community that is already experiencing discrimination, with 1 in 5 transgender people in Romania experiencing physical/sexual attacks /2
according to on the 2020 Fundamental Rights Agency (FRA) report. The bill is now heading to the President of Romania for approval. Major universities in Romania, as well as student-led associations claim it represents an infringement on freedom of speech and right to education /3

/1 Let me be clear about some things:

- My story speaks to the experience of straight men who, at some point in their lives, developed an addiction to cross-dressing, and who, over time and with “counseling,” persuaded themselves that they were trans.
/2 Cross-dressing is a *behavioral addiction*. Like most addictions, it requires a greater and greater dose of dopamine to give the addict satisfaction.
/3 Over time, simply putting on a particular type of clothing fails to bring the desired “high”. The addict has to get a bigger hit.

This leads to a progression of full dress - seeking to pass - going out in public - possibly dating ...

I want to say something. You know me on Twitter as a screenwriter or comic book writer. You probably know I'm #trans. I live openly. Proudly. What you might not know is that I run Alabama's only LGBTQ pro bono legal service, funded by @ejaf. 80% of my clients are trans. 1/
Every day, I meet new faces from the trans community. They come for name changes. Job issues. Housing. And sometimes, just to talk. I'm a public trans person, successful and accepted. Like I did starting out, we seek examples of lives that show us possibility of who we can be. 2/
Because what every trans person knows, setting out on this journey, is that there is a headwind. Knowing whether that is a steady breeze or hurricane, requires taking that first step. It's scary to not know what the world thinks of you. It can be scarier to find out. 3/

THREAD: A quick Health Care and Non-Discrim #KnowYourRights for #trans folks across NH! Not only does New Hampshire has comprehensive gender identity non-discrimination protections in employment, housing, public accommodations, and public schools, but... (1/5)
...as of January 1 2020, state law explicitly also prohibits discrimination against gender identity in preferred provider agreements, mental health services, as well as in covered services and medications under health insurance policies. (2/5) #NHpolitics
Two things for NH folk to keep in mind: (1) the #LGBTQ employment cases at #SCOTUS will have no impact on employment non-discrim in NH - you still cannot be fired because you're trans in NH - and (2) state level health care coverage is NOT being rolled back. (3/5)

that is actually not accurate - this is the singularity reality version #SR
- singularity v. assumes there are two basic genders, not true -

in #OR trans men are both men & women, and trans women are both women and men, same goes for the nonbinary:

LGBTQ in.toil.blog/archives/704
e.g. in #OR - the actual reality -

a gay man is actually a woman who happens to have the male (S) & (G) chromosomes, which has caused the social standards shift irretrievably the self-perception as a male member of society..

same for a lesbian woman - who is a actually a man..
to sum up:
gay men are women, lesbian women are men -
it is the chromosome (I) that indicates gender, not (S) or even (G):

CH S: FEM + CH I: MALE + CH G: FEM = LESBIAN FEMALE

CH S: MALE + CH I: FEM + CH G: MALE = GAY MALE
