This was what I worried would happen with @Booker4KY. Not be on the offensive with @RandPaul, who's an abysmal, but only on the defensive when need to. Just like the @KyDems always do, which is a losing strategy. But Booker's running on policies that are materially popular!!!
Here's a fun fact about running in an election... If you run as an Aggressive & Offensive Candidate with Policies that help the People & their Material Well-being, then you win.
Here's how I know; In the 2015 Midterms, @AlanGrayson of the @FlaDems, he won with no problem. He was unapologetic when being a "#Progressive", stands up with his Principles & goes for the Jugular in Political Ads at his Opponents on how their Policies are Wrong, Evil & Bad &...

More organized post:
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.
Like literally this is why #millennials including myself sometimes just feel... Like some people are two /2
faced. #generationy more critique, in my case, in the white sector but some of you #liberal people of color, even black and Latinx/Indigenous folx make yourself so unapproachable even as a liberal myself and I just don't like that. /3

Dave Chappell is hyper fixated on trans people.
Has someone spoken to him? Genuine question. Please do not reply about how it’s no ones job to educate him when Boogle is free. My question is: has a conversation happened? I’d have it if I were smart enough. I want a better world. I don’t care that he SHOULD get it. He doesn’t.
I want him to.

Why do all therapists need to know how to talk respectfully about sexuality and gender identity? I was interviewed for a podcast for the first time and was asked this question, but I found myself tripping over my words! So here goes #TherapistsConnect 1/
Firstly, #therapy research shows that #LGBTQ plus and other Gender, Sex and Relationship Diverse (GSRD) people tend to self-censor in therapy and assume that talking about sexuality and gender identity is "off limits". Why is this? 2/
Well, #LGBTQ plus people grow up surrounded by #homophobia, #biphobia and #transphobia (yes, it still exists folks, both in the UK and in other contexts). Most of us internalise it to some extent, and many learn to protect ourselves by staying quiet about "being different". 3/

This week I went to the DMV to finally transfer my state driver’s license, and it was the best experience I’ve yet to have. The thing is though, my “proof of ID” docs were in my deadname. 1/7
2/7 Lots of people who know West Virginia to be conservative, my trans self included, would be nervous to go to the DMV for this. I have the privilege of “passing” and most people wouldn’t know I’m trans unless I told them. I had to tell these complete strangers who I used to be.
3/7 It was scary. I had all my documents prepared, though, including CA my court order for name and gender change. When I got called to the counter and handed over my court order to supplement my proof of ID, I started to sweat. “This might not be enough” the clerk said.

Oggi la twittersfera ha scoperto questo saggio (del 2012, ma messo online nel 2020) di un accademico #queer che propone, secondo quanto leggo nell'abstract, di inserire anche la #zoofilia nella sigla LGBTQIAE.…

Io ve l'avevo detto. Ma da anni. Perché 1.
doveva succedere.

E non perché i queer siano brutti o cattivi o scemi (non lo sono), ma perché il loro modo di ragionare, che nega l'esistenza di #orientamenti e prevede solo "#identità", non ha strumenti critici per negare l'equiparazione fra una identità e le altre. Alla 2.
fine, è inevitabile che tutte le identità si equivalgano, perché nessuna può essere "vera" o "falsa".

Non curiosamente - dato che come ho sostenuto più volte si tratta solo di due facce della medesima ideologia - anni fa già #Giovanardi aveva fatto la stessa scoperta, 3.

Y'all want a timeline cleanser? Here ya go.

My oldest was adopted in 2005 at not-quite 3yo. First granddaughter. My mom, very crafty & talented woman, started a baby quilt, a traditional Sunbonnet Sue. She finished the top, but what with one thing & another never finished it.
Mom also had a top she started for her 1st grandson in 2003.

Both those kids graduated from high school this year.

For graduation she decided to finish those baby quilts. For my nephew, she added fabrics reflecting his love of the outdoors & the U.P.
For my kid -- well. Pink & green Sunbonnet Sue didn't really suit a kid who is actually a non-binary minimalist. They haven't worn a dress or anything pink since maybe 4th grade. Mom couldn't imagine giving this quilt to this particular kid. So she went to @Spoonflower for ideas.

I am in full support of the #perth West Australian hospital #genderclinic being in review. This mess cannot be cleaned up until #safeguarding is recognised #gillick full informed consent takes place, those that raise safety concerns are heard, the #teenagebrain is recognised…
…the evidence based research is interpreted appropriately #detrans voices are heard, therapists stop being #psychoactivists rather than #psychotherapists acknowledgement of differential diagnosis & primary diagnoses are given for those with #genderdysphoria #trans #detrans
I am in support of this just as I was with the @TaviAndPort #GIDS #genderclinic #kierabell legal matter for the reasons of #safeguarding and the reasons of health professionals being #silenced for real and valid concerns. I am in full support of both Finland and Sweden’s..

Breaking down "Biological Sex"

Tweeting this rather than replying so I can make a proper chain. Credit to @RileyJayDennis for helping me frame my understanding -

#TransRightsAreHumanRights #TranswomenAreWomen #transmenaremen #trans #TransIsBeautiful
Biological Sex is a human-created classification system for sorting organisms based on their reproductive abilities. The stuff that ‘biological sex’ describes is objective, but the system isn’t.

The most widely used model for determining sex is:
Secondary sex characteristics

These 5 things are measurable facts. But grouping them together under one system is a human invention. A model for understanding and classifying bodies.

Australian Judges to now oversee #transgender #teen treatment is a positive step forward and welcomed in order to safeguard children who are unable to give full #gillick #informedconsent…
Thank you @KLBfax for your #bravery and standing up for vulnerable children who deserve #safeguarding, should have been given full #gillick informed consent and should have had their immature prefrontal cortex, as a consequence of child development, taken into consideration
This decision supports the UK, Finland, and Sweden in an international shift towards caution for #children and safest ethical medical practice. The Australian #gender clinic remains unidentified at the moment

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 am trained in #developmental #psychology and #neuroscince. I have been screaming the #teenagebrain is #underreconstruction from the rooftops! Am totally ashamed of my peers who wilfully ignore this. #neuroplasticity #frontallobes #psychologists #gender #rogd #trans #detrans
The teenage brain is under reconstruction. The prefrontal cortex is not fully developed until minimum aged 25. A bit longer for males. The prefrontal cortex is largely responsible for: decision making, planning, organisation, focusing, impulsivity, aka executive functions
Managing emotions, predicting consequences of one’s choices and moderating social behaviour. This is #science #facts Anyone who says otherwise is brainwashed by #ideology Shame on any professional who ignores this #gender #trans #detrans #shame

#CristoLGBT thread / Premessa: non è una gara a chi l’ha fatto prima o dopo (anche perché Avoja a rappresentazioni “blasfeme” ai Pride! Evviva!) anzi è affermazione che facciamo queste cose, in certi momenti, quando più ci sentiamo sotto attacco. ⤵️ Image
#orgoglio #ostentazione di @Andrea414 e @porporamarcasciano a #romapride2021 per me è ciò che siamo. Irriverenza ma anche smascheramento in maschera delle maschere altrui. Sono tanto friendLY MA Hanno tanti amici gay MA Non hanno niente contro MA … ⤵️ Image
Queste foto sono state scattate a #pompeipride2018 Avevo fatto da poco #comingout come persona #transgender e quel #pride🌈 era stato duramente attaccato dai #fascisti di #forzanuova

No tuviste que mentirle a tus padres.
No tienes que ocultar a tu pareja en el trabajo.
No te han marginado en el colegio.
No te han prohibido hablar de tus miedos.
No te han puesto trabas para casarte.
No eres un delincuente en algunas partes del mundo, solo por ser tú.

No te persiguen.
No sientes miedo por tu integridad delante de algunos grupos de gente.
No te preocupa que pongan en duda tu capacidad de criar a un hijo.
No te matan.
Enhorabuena, probablemente seas heterosexual, así que no digas que el #DíaDelOrgullo, el #Pride, no es necesario y que “¿para cuándo el día del orgullo hetero?”

Oltre al fatto che avete cercato sempre di ostacolare qualsiasi programma #antibullismo con la balla della #teoriagender che è una fissa di #popefrensis che risale ai tempi dell’Argentina che votava #unionicivili che poi state sempre a questionare su questo papà di sinistra⤵️
tirato per la tonaca da dx e da sx per lo stesso motivo cioè essere di sx Ma quando mai? Il Papa è il Papa e dice cose da Papa. Sul #gender dice cose che dovrebbero piacere alla dx invece che alla sx se solo le dichiarazioni fossero riportare fedelmente e allora cosa c’è come ⤵️

#Pride month should be about celebrating the #LGBTQ+ community and highlighting the fight for equality & freedom around the world 🌈🌍 Pride flag
But, disappointingly, we’ve seen backlash against those campaigning for the rights of the #Trans community here in the UK, especially at work 🏳️‍⚧️
Data by the @The_TUC shows that 7 in 10 #trans workers say their experience of workplace harassment or discrimination has a negative effect on their mental health

@stonewalluk research found that 1 in 8 trans employees said they had been attacked by a colleague or customer

Ayyy all, digging through my emails - this month's @humble bundle unlocked, and I've a few extra keys.

Would any of you fine folks that've been following along for this wild ride like a #SteamKey for #CivilizationVI Platinum Edition?

No strings, other than you have to enjoy it!
*Apparently I need to clarify/hit bot triggers:

Keys will only go-to longtime followers of mine, that are actual, real people. That I've interacted with. Clear? 🤣✌️♥️🏴‍☠️

Game's still up for grabs for [#organic] followers & friends only; sorry, Silicon-based crowd, key-sellers, [...]!

Times are hard for everyone right now [We're on DAY SIX of our illegal water cut]; but they're especially hard for certain #communities.

Let's talk about "Trans Broken Arm Syndrome", a sadly common problem that prevents transgender people from accessing adequate care, and how as healthcare workers we can stop perpetuating it!
#TwitteRx #MedTwitter #LGBTQ #trans #pride

1/ 🧵
"Trans Broken Arm Syndrome" is the practice of assuming any health problem a transgender patient has is due to their transness, especially hormone therapy. It is also when a trans person's gender history is discussed in-depth when it has no relevance to the problem at hand.

Headaches? GERD? Injury? Clearly it is your hormone therapy, which you should stop. This can prevent trans people from getting adequate care for their issues, and even outside of healthcare, has people assuming our transness is the reason for our sickness and death.

#CancelCulture: Heute hätte ich digital in einer Veranstaltungsreihe des AStA der Uni Vechta referieren sollen. Im Vorfeld wurden die Veranstalter bedrängt, diesen Vortrag abzusagen. Nun folgt ein längerer Thread zu Hintergründen und grundsätzlichen Problemen. 1/x
Das Thema meines Vortrags wären die aktuellen Konflikte zwischen #Trans und #Radfem gewesen. Meine These hierbei ist, dass die wesentliche Ursache für diese Konflikte ein postmodernes Verständnis von Geschlecht ist, was am besten gar nicht mehr irgendwas mit Biologie 2/x
zu tun haben darf. Das Problem ist international, es verschärft sich an mehreren Fronten. Längst sind Rechtspopulisten und -extreme erfolgreich auf diese Konflikte um Geschlecht aufgesprungen. Eine Analyse, die den Namen verdient, ist überfällig. 3/x

This will seem like a very odd decision for anyone familiar with LGB Alliance's social media profile. Taking a first glance at @ChtyCommission's reasoning here's what strikes me as key. Others may have more insight...
Firstly, it seems that much of LGB Alliance's historic social media output runs directly contrary to some their started charitable aims, notably the fact that they spend a lot of time denying and denigrating #bisexuality. Thread: .
This ought to have been a red flag for the @ChtyCommission as in section 41, they specifically commented on whether or not the LGB Alliance was a "sham" and, in section 42, concluded that there was "no evidence".

This begs the question: what evidence do they need, exactly?
