since we're talking about anti-vaxxers & calls to "debate me", I will add that anti-trans activists use this exact same playbook. you can't "debate" a scientific consensus, b/c it's not based on one study & can't be undone w/individual "questions/concerns"…
...I will add that the anti-trans parent movement is eerily similar to the anti-vaccine parent movement in their tactics and dynamics – I detail those parallels here:… #trans #transgender #LGBTQ #science
...ppl are sharing this great thread on further similarities with the "subliminal Satanic messages" moral panic of the 1980s. TL;DR: there is no satisfying conspiracy theorists b/c they're not evidence based & will never be swayed by "debate"...

Transgender health: Comparing model bills to real proposals; Many bills have preambles asserting that the risks of #gender-affirming care outweigh its benefits, which has been rebutted by major #medical organizations.…
1) The AP obtained the texts of more than 130 bills in 40 state legislatures from Plural, a public policy software company, and analyzed them for similarities to model bills touted by the conservative groups Do No Harm and the Family Research Council.
2) The model bills have similar preambles, including the assertion — rebutted by major #medical organizations — that the risks of gender-affirming care outweigh its benefits.…

@DiscountMabs @JadedNurse63 @rizpossnett Ignoring fact that 50% of studies can't be replicated

And "Sociology" & related "Medical" type "studies" are the worst culprits

The ones that say otherwise are highly biased cherry-picked "studies" of self-selected participants by activist "researchers"…
@DiscountMabs @JadedNurse63 @rizpossnett As I said

Depriving #TransKids of proper counselling😯

And railroading them down the so-called "#AffimativeCare" pathway😮

Is what is killing them😲

And that's what YOU support!!!😱🤦‍♂️

It's worse than the Liverpool "Care" Pathway!!!…
@DiscountMabs @JadedNurse63 @rizpossnett #TransActivists have no self-awareness!

Up now in Texas Senate: #SB1029 which would prohibit public $ for "provision or administration" of gender-affirming care for all ages of patients.

Would also make insurers "strictly liable" to pay for detransitions, and make it easier to sue doctors for malpractice. #txlege
Sen @NathanForTexas asks: "If a patient comes in and requests a procedure, and the physician provides the procedure and does so competently, that physician is nevertheless liable to that patient for anything that follows that procedure?"

@SenBobHall: "That's it." #txlege
@NathanForTexas @SenBobHall Sen @sarah_eckhardt asks if an adult gets gender modification surgery then can tell the doctor who provided it: "Now you must pay for all of my subsequent treatment for the rest of my life?"

Hall: "Related to the surgery." #txlege #SB1029 #LGBTQ

⭐️Gender Identification or Gender Dysphoria
A disease propagated by the Left ideologues in the society.
Let us see how Left Kabal is destroying our social institutions:
#Gender #Woman #Man #Left #Right #India #Society #LGBTQ #Transgender #SameSexMarriage Image
1. Sex is the biological expression of our genotype in the form of phenotype while gender is a social expression based on the cultural evolution of ethos and eidos.
#Gender #Woman #Man #Left #Right #India #Society #LGBTQ #Transgender #SameSexMarriage
2. Our social institutions like family, marriage, and kinship all are based on values prescribed to gender-based roles.

Before a sport can ban a trans athlete for having an unfair advantage the sport has to define what this unfair advantage actually is. Human rights are not based on assumptions!
A sport such as rugby union which is a contact sport in which players require high levels of physical fitness, which is a composite of aerobic and anaerobic endurance, muscle strength and power, speed, agility and body composition.
All of these attributes can be assessed on a case by case basis very easily for any athlete, male, female, trans or intersex.

Background here:… #txlege #LGBT #LGBTQ

@DonnaCampbellTX Sen. @Menendez4Texas is speaking on the gender-affirming care ban bill now:

I was interviewed by @washingtonpost about MTG’s vile use of ‘pedophile’ to attack her enemies. The article is below. Today I’m giving the #history of this term as anti-LGBTQ and #antisemitic, and it’s link to #fascism, eugenics, and Nazis.…
One of the earliest fights for rights of #homosexuals/ #transgender was engaged by Magnus Hirschfeld, a Jewish doctor in Berlin, 1900-1930s. At the time, the term for what we consider ‘pedophiles’ was ‘pederasts.’ Conservative moralists would accuse any homosexual of pederasty.
They called homosexuals ‘immoral’ or ‘pathological.’ Hirschfeld explained homosexuality as an in-born natural condition. But Germany was deeply invested in culture of Männerbund and misogynistic masculinist rhetoric, which increasingly associated with nationalist sentiments.

Since yesterday’s tweet (where I broke down a scientific study JK Rowling posted about blood/sex/gender), I’ve seen the argument that ‘sex is real’ because of chromosomes used to support anti- #transgender rhetoric. So today I’m sharing some biology in support of #TransRights
Let’s consider chromosomes first. The anti-trans argument says XX is female/woman and XY is male/man. That’s the gender binary. But biology isn’t binary—it’s messy. You can be born XXY or XYY. You may be born with aspects of both sexes along a spectrum. It’s also true for animals
A true XXY, what we call Klinefelter syndrome (47 chromosomes). 64% of those with the condition are never diagnosed (Jeannie Visootsak, MD, MSc 2014) and most who are only notice in puberty. About 1 in 500 are born with XXY. Now, XYY occurs in about 1 in 1000.

This causes a lot of confusion.

JK Rowling is up here suggesting blood is gendered and you have to get transfusion from the same bio sex you were assigned at birth (supporting her anti #transgender rhetoric) Before the blow up, some key information regarding the study she refers to—let’s get the facts 1/
There was a study. But: “The American Red Cross and the researchers themselves were quick to say the study is not definitive enough” and “three teams were from different countries, used different data sets and all had slightly different findings.” So what were the findings? 2/
The study suggested there may be a 2% decrease in how long a chromosomally male patient lives after cardiac arrest transfusion from a person who had been pregnant. (Loss: about one year of extra life) But the study was limited, using different data set. What would prove it? 2/

#BREAKING | Sensitive Content 🚨

Security footage released showing #transgender #Nashville shooter #AudreyHale driving & shooting her way into the school building.

Live on #FoxNews, an angry mom at the #Nashville School #Shooting #PressConference, steps in front of the mic and gives an incredible speech.

Meanwhile Fox News is caught off guard and panics, trying to not show her on air. I'm sure the gun lobby and NRA aren't too happy.…
The mass shooting in Nashville yesterday is the 129th mass shooting in the US so far this year. 6 people including 3 children killed the shooter captured here on CCTV. That’s a rate of 1.4 mass shootings per day in the US in 2023.

3 settimane fa il #Tennessee ha vietato la #mutilazione di genere infantile.

Oggi un #transgender ha commesso un crimine d'odio per omicidio di massa premeditato contro i cristiani uccidendo 6 persone, tra cui tre #bambini piccoli.
La portavoce della #CasaBianca: "Quanti altri bambini dovranno essere uccisi prima che i repubblicani al Congresso si facciano avanti e agiscano per approvare il #divieto delle #armi d'assalto?".

Now speaking is Xandra, a person who identifies as a "detransitioned woman." She does not live in South Carolina, and all of the trans-related medical treatment she received took place after she is 18. S.627 would not have impacted any of the care that she received. Image
This testifier who identifies as a "detransitioned woman" said the quiet part out loud by saying that she supports banning transgender-related medical care even for adults. This wave of anti-transgender attacks has *never* been about "protecting kids."
This parent testified in support of banning gender-affirming care for transgender youth and is being positioned as an expert on the topic – but her child never even accessed the medical care that would be banned by the law. Image
