Hey everyone, on my TDOV stream announcement:

I messed up on the planning pretty badly, as quite a few of you have rightly pointed out the first announcement of guests was all white people and I agree with you I just don't think that's good enough

What lead to this was just...
me being a noob. I sent out a lot of invites and when I got a few back I thought I would announce with a partial guest list and then fill in the rest as they came back. I haven't organised anything like this before and was just excited with the replies I had got and didn't...
think. I did of course invite POC and some exciting and lovely people have since confirmed, but clearly this was a really crap way of doing things, and it was wrong to announce how I did. That's not remotely an excuse, just a reason

I apologise to everyone for what my...
clumsy action has resulted in. To the trans POC who feel that I've ignored them, and to all the amazing people on the guest list who didn't know the state of things until I announced, this is only my fault. I shouldn't have left something this ambitious so last minute

people I've talked to have said I shouldn't cancel, I should just confirm a few more people and have a bit of a rearrange. What do you think? Do you have any suggestions of people you'd love to see?

I appreciate all your feedback so far and I am sorry for being rubbish ❤️❤️

Just been looking at the #GenderCritical legal crowdfunders and how well they've been doing (data compiled by @WorldWearyWoman)

They've raised nearly £1m on lawsuits alone, though over half of the lawsuits resolved so far have failed. £250k in the bin
Some people are getting rich off of it though! Two different law firms have raked in over £300k each. I wonder what cut they take of that
Two thirds of the money spent on successful lawsuits was spent on the Keira Bell case, which is being appealed this year

The British media is such a fucking joke my god. I couldn't come up with headlines this insane and stupid if I tried Image
The fact is that you can write ANYTHING about trans people as long as it's negative and you'll get published. There is no standards at all, no quality filter, no fact checking. That's not an exaggeration at all, look at the fucking state of it
This is part of the anti-trans crew making up that nurses aren't allowed to say mother or breast feeding anymore - something they have completely fabricated, there is no evidence for this AT ALL and the document they're talking about explicitly says the opposite. It's made up

Do you remember that person who claimed that "TRAs" stole her car and set it on fire and blagged a load of money off GC people, and then it turned out she faked it? Lol
Found it Image

It's not "progressive" to give trans kids internationally recommended healthcare because they've been doing it for over 30 years. It's just what the science shows is best

From someone who isn't desperate for conspiracy theories to invalidate modern medicine Image
But I do agree with them that seeing that demonstration is good. If something that pathetic and that clearly insane are the best they've got then good

Have you ever seen a more blatant false flag?

Yet again #GenderCritical people are posting up abusive stuff and trying to pass it off as trans people doing it

I have absolutely ZERO doubt that a GC person did this. I'd bet my year's salary on it. It's not remotely subtle Image
Remember when they posted these up too?


The reason GC people have to do this kind of stuff is because their strawman of trans people doesn't actually exist IRL. They're trying to "peak trans" (aka radicalise) people. They have to lie to do it Image
You can tell in the flag instantly that this 100% comes from a Gender Critical person as they've mentioned "cotton ceiling", part of a conspiracy theory that every single GC person has heard of and no trans person ever has

Wow 2 trans hate hashtags trending this morning #BoycottTheCensus. UK is a fucking state. #GenderCritical is the British Qanon

Let me explain how utterly stupid this is. They're angry about the wording on a question as it includes trans people, but their arguments make no sense:
They say that having a question where trans women can say they're women (they don't care about trans men, or even know they exist) will ruin the data

1) no it won't, trans women are like 0.3% of the population (and you know are women, but even if you disagree with that...)
2) more importantly if the census had the question they wanted, so it just asked you sex and nothing else... then almost every trans woman in the whole country would just tick female. Like they have in every single census up until this point, thus recording them as women.
