i called this early in the piece - both about the #EdDeform agenda and about the #transcult agenda.... that there is a clear MO and funding commitment to secure the results desired by big players, which includes the establishment/activism/funding by #AstroTurfs#InconvenientTruth
I spent SEVEN YEARS of my life fighing the #EdDeform BS and now i am fighting the equally noxious #trans ideology...
"Probably the most famous example of philanthropy, astroturf, and a predetermined vision coming together is charter schools.
Foundations from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, to the Waltons, to a laundry list of wealthy family foundations have taken on the specter of American public schooling.
THREAD: I didn’t have rapid-onset gender dysphoria, but for #ROGDWEEK2018 I want to share the reasons I thought I was not a woman and tried to transition.
Both parents came for traditional Welsh and Mancunian working class backgrounds. Insidious gender stereotypes were stamped all over the fabric of our family, whether they knew it or not. On the one hand I was unusually lucky to have a breadwinner mother (doctor)
On the other, I was unfortunate enough to have a bitter, entitled, lazy and narcissistic father who abused us both sexually and emotionally. He resented our drive and our intelligence (qualities he lacked) so did everything possible to undermine our confidence and independence.
There is a huge overlap between (a) the transgender population and (b) the BDSM/fetish/"kink" scene. Only a fool could believe this is not significant. Also, how many transgender people have histories of childhood sexual trauma?
#Transcult: "If you don't validate their identities and support their transition, they'll kill themselves!"
Sane People: "Can we talk about their suicidal tendencies? Maybe the cause-and-effect correlation here isn't what you say it is?" #Transcult: "HATER!"
#Transcult: "Do what I say or I'll kill myself!"
Sane people: "What is this, a hostage standoff? You're not a victim. You're a bully. Take your pronouns and your ideology and go jump off a bridge, for all I care."
"It is for everyone who questions the medicalisation of childhood feelings, the invasive and life-changing treatment of minors and the aggressive tactics of transgender and LGBT organisations to promote and normalise this medical experiment"
"It is for lesbian and gay adults who fear for this generation of gay and lesbian children and adolescents encouraged to see themselves as ‘trans’ and straight."
trans people can be gay, lesbian, and bi. gender influences sexuality, it doesn't cancel it out.
Reasons Dudebro loves the #transcult - a non comprehensive list 1. Dudebro loves to police language and correct other people's 'errors' (esp women)
2. Dudebro has been very frustrated trying to be woke and still needing to yell at people and call them names (esp women)
3. Dudebro resents the 'advantages' people have from not being straight, white, educated men (esp women) 'Queer' politics means he can carry on sleeping exclusively with women and claim marginalization
being a person of a certain age, i am having somewhat of a difficult time trying to fully comprehend the massive blue screen that is #tsraincrew. i could mull this over internally...in fact, i'd gather roughly 99% of you would prefer that.
here's what i have pieced together from my reading, which is as wide and deep as their movement.
read into that what you will.
#tsraincrew is a movement that is not gender critical but is totally gender critical, which isn't about truscum but totally is.
let me make an analogy here:
terfs are gender critical feminists, biological essentialists, witch shifting goalposts as to what defines a woman, but which always boils down to two things:
