Watch live: anti-trans activists who pretend to root their activism in faux-feminism spread lies about trans people to give Heritage’s hateful rhetoric the veneer of bipartisanship.
Just kidding, please don't watch this.
One of the biggest lies underpinning the Right's use of anti-trans faux-feminists is their crocodile tears for the poor gay and lesbian kids and tomboy girls and femme boys.

"Some very young boys like to wear dresses! Hormone blockers erase these kids!"
As. If. The. Heritage. Foundation. Supported. Gender. Variant. Kids. BEFORE they realized they could manipulate anti-trans faux-feminists to give their hate the semblance of bipartisanship.
RIGHT NOW the Heritage Foundation is bemoaning the erasure of gay and lesbian people AT AN EVENT ATTACKING THE EQUALITY ACT!!!!!!
JULIA BECK JUST SAID "you may be asking yourself why a lesbian is speaking to the Heritage Foundation. The reason is, there is no place for me in the LGBT community."

Just as the Right leverages anti-trans faux-feminists for cover, they leverage the Right.
"People are not attracted to genders."

"There are only 3 sexual orientations. . . . Pansexuality is real."

"The T is diametrically opposed to the L, the G, and the B."

"People with intersex conditions are still either one sex or the other."
Beck's rhetoric underscores the other lie that the Right is telling when they leverage anti-trans faux-feminists: trans people are actually weapons of the patriarchy, erasing women.
1. Hahhahahahahahahahahahaahhahahah

2. This is why it is so glaring when anti-trans faux-feminists refuse to talk about trans men.
Kara Dansky is now talking about her work with WoLF and Hands Across the Aisle.

Check out my article on the work she'll be talking about here: rewire.news/article/2019/0…
Dansky is talking about WoLF's suit against the US re: the Obama-era Title IX guidance.

After Devos removed the guidance, the case was dismissed with WoLF's permission.
Dansky now talking about the Boyertown case, waiting to see if SCOTUS will take the case on appeal.

In Boyertown, cis students are suing the school district to remove the protections for trans students.
"Why do I care if sex means gender identity? Because of the parents of the stories Jennifer read. . . If sex is construed to read gender identity, nearly all sex-segregated spaces will disappear. . . It will mean women and girls will no longer exist as a civil rights category."
"Passage of the Equality Act will obliterate female spaces across the country."

IF YOU'RE JUST STEPPING INTO THE THREAD, I'M LIVE-TWEETING A HERITAGE FOUNDATION EVENT LIFTING ANTI-TRANS FAUX-FEMINIST VOICES.
Question: "Is there any reason not to refer to the Equality Act" as the "Female Erasure Act."

"No."

Laughter.
Dansky struggling to explain right now how federal law actually works.

PLEASE DON'T FORGET (This is HERON talking)

TITLE IX PROTECTS TRANSGENDER STUDENTS!! TITLE VII PROTECTS TRANS WORKERS!!!!
ALERT ALERT: panelists are referring to "gender ideology" and "trans ideology" and "queer ideology."

THESE ARE DOG-WHISTLES FROM THE RIGHT: rewire.news/article/2018/0…

Hacsi Horvath struggling to explain why endocrinologists are supporting trans youth: "they just can't keep up with the science or they can't read or they're just playing along."
CONTENT NOTE

Hasci Horvath: "We can't play along. It's not a fucking she. I haven't been to New Jersey, or Ontario recently, where it's illegal. In NYC it's a quarter million dollars if you misgender someone. Imagine what will happen in 5 years when China picks up on this."
Beck: "Get off facebook, get off twitter. That's not where real discussions happen."

IE: don't connect with one another.
Q: "Phyllis Schlafly sparked a revolution when she stood up against the ERA. Can't we do that now?"

A: "Yes!"

Heron: OH MY GOD DO YOU REALIZE THAT SCHLAFLY WAS FIGHTING AGAINST YOUR LITERAL PRESENCE ON THAT STAGE!!!
CONTENT NOTE!!

"Trans rights are really men's rights."
Q: "Is the Equality Act an opportunity to spark a similar debate like that in the UK around the Gender Recognition Act?"

A: "The difference is that there were journalists in the UK with a national reach speaking out about the GRA. We need journalists with national reach here."
Alright my friends.

If you were watching, or reading on twitter, please take a deep breath in, hold it for a sec, and let it out.

It is serious that the Right is platforming anti-trans faux-feminists (TERFs). It is important that we watch them. And expose their lies.

AAHHHH THIS SHOULD SAY PANSEXUALITY ISN'T REAL!!! SHE ERASED PAN FOLKS!!
