Around 5 years ago I first encountered the vitriolic attacks on #women asserting their right to politically self-organise from so-called trans-rights activists in a socialist group I associated with at the time. Having been active in radical left... /1
#WomensLib2020
...politics for nearly 30 years I had never encountered such appallingly sectarian, dishonest & personal attacks on the left. My first reaction was to defend #women's self-organisation on the basis that we must also support #LGBT self-organisation so ensuring... /2
#WomensLib2020
...that different oppressed groups each had space & representation to better challenge that oppression. For this I was denounced as #transphobic just as the #women had been for asserting their right to self-organise had been & I first encountered the mantra... /3

For National #ComingOutDay, a #thread on trans children coming out as a follow-up to #transphobic comments after Jacob asked @ewarren how she would protect trans kids in the #EqualityTownHall. I've seen an appalling number of harmful myths in less than 24 hours. Let's bust 'em!
"Children can't come out with a gender identity at a young age!" False. Studies of child development show that children begin to understand sex and how it relates to gender as early as two years old. See a large, long-term study by @olsonista : theatlantic.com/science/archiv…
This is also true in my personal experience running peer-support groups with parents of trans & NB children and middle- and high school-aged trans & NB youth. While many kids come out during puberty or after, a growing number of children are coming out at young ages and PERSIST.

American #libertarianism is sort of a mixed bag. A lot of male libertarians are very naïve about social reality, placing personal responsibility above everything else. They seem to take wealth concentration in the top 1% for granted, not realizing the complex reasons behind it.
Yet tons of people are born into poverty with almost no way out, particularly blacks in the ghettos and Native Americans in reservations. Yes, inequality is inevitable in any society, but it's morally irresponsible not to give a damn about it.
It's true that they tend to be far less #transphobic than social conservatives, but many of them judge trans women by "fuckability", which, needless to say, is #sexist. And many of them have an I-know-it-all mindset. Eric S. Raymond, father of "open source", is an archetype.

@KirstiMiller30 @brianmoore666 @AFL @RugbyAU @smh @Peter_Fitz @TwoBluesWomen @PrideinSportAU @AthleteAlly The great vanishing act! @KirstiMiller30 Trans erased!

Writing a book about farked up things people did back then.

Sad thing is people don’t get it when it comes to trans lives: we do matter even though some people think we don’t & our very existence is drawn into question.
@KirstiMiller30 @brianmoore666 @AFL @RugbyAU @smh @Peter_Fitz @TwoBluesWomen @PrideinSportAU @AthleteAlly 1/2 The pic bottom right shows male winners names still on there. Mine & Belinda’s are missing.

If they only took my name off list they’d appear directly #transphobic but underhanded way they did it erasing award winners before me & Belinda makes it harder to hold to account.
@KirstiMiller30 @brianmoore666 @AFL @RugbyAU @smh @Peter_Fitz @TwoBluesWomen @PrideinSportAU @AthleteAlly 2/2 It was calculated & final straw after being assaulted at club training, ostracised at rep training & bullied on team bus back to Sydney from ACT. Yet I was player suspended.

Silver lining was rep stuff got better & bullies gone from Sydney team - 2006. #Rugby #transathlete

Things which are not #transphobic, despite TRAs shouting otherwise:

- safeguarding children and vulnerable adults
- homosexuality
- heterosexuality
- women’s rights
- science
- evidence-based healthcare
- asking questions
- women saying ‘no’ to men
Sex, race, religion, sexual orientation: all are protected characteristics under the Equality Act 2010. Gender identity is not. Gender reassignment is not the winning card in a game of top trumps. Every protected characteristic must be considered when changing policy or law.
Women, men, genuine sufferers of gender dysphoria: Your rights, safety, privacy and dignity and those of your children and elderly parents are under threat by a bunch of self-entitled men yelling ‘transphobe’ at you. You are allowed to say no.

@SurvivorsnetBtn @RASASC_London @survivorstrust @Danvers07943910 @ObjectUK @BrightonSurvivorsNET “In the light of a highly disturbing increase of #transphobia locally & nationally…” IF everything anybody says or does is #transphobia, of course you can say it is rising. Any reputable statistics?
@SurvivorsnetBtn @RASASC_London @survivorstrust @Danvers07943910 @ObjectUK “…so the date @Womans_Place_UK event feels like a concerted effort to make #trans ppl, & particularly #transwomen, feel #intimidated and #invalidated” Is it the position of SN that the sensitivities of #transwomen mean that #democracy should be suspended any time they say so?
@SurvivorsnetBtn @RASASC_London @survivorstrust @Danvers07943910 @ObjectUK @Womans_Place_UK #Transwomen do face special challenges but they remain #bio #logical #males but it is fine for them #Gender express as ‘women’ but with the best will in the world, they remain #bio #logically #male @WomenEqualities @Commonswomequ @PennyMordaunt @MariaMillerUK @LesleySemmens

.Every day in twitterverse I watch straight young white people who identify as "progressive" demean and diminish the lives of the marginalized & insist that WE need to recognize that "economic security" is the #1 issue all liberals need to focus on which will then solve all. (1)
.I watch them speak from their lofty privilege not realizing that they are standing on a platform built by the very people they demean. Their lack of gratitude for the work of these before them blows my mind. Their robotic devotion to an establishment man with minimal (2)
.accomplishments in his career is staggering. What saves me from despair is the ongoing work of POC and LGBTQ activists and allies who continue to engage the #racist & #homophobic #misogynist #transphobic "sleeping" people. Huge credit to all of you doing this work (3)
