Why these anti-first amendment hate speech policies are complete bullsh*t. When men are deciding what constitutes hate, it's women's voices. Nearly every major platform is banning women from speaking about the conflicts between women's rights & transgenderism. /1
It's no accident that 'misgendering' is considered 'hate speech' while 'revenge porn' and misogyny -- even violent hatred & threats -- are not. #RedditHatesWomen & so does Medium, Twitter, WordPress, Facebook, CrowdJustice, Care2 & Change petitions, Wikipedia, Amazon & others. /2
Can we come together & build our own platforms? If you have skills or money, even if you can't put your name out there, we need you. This #censorship cannot stand. It's how fascism starts & democracy dies. We need #FreeSpeech & for-profit platforms have NO incentive to ensure. /3
A thread on how to ARCHIVE websites, VERY helpful for: 1. You don't want to give any traffic/income to a clickbait site like PenisNews. 2. You want to share a site with your international friends, not all sites allow that. 3. You want to find a copy of a paywalled article. 1/?
First, there are 2 main archive sites that I know of. Let's start with archive.is. Here you can easily paste the url into the search box to find out if an article has already been archived & if not, make a copy of it quickly. (The other is web.archive[dot]org.) 2/?
So here we want to search for a recent article from PenisNews on a lesbian who claims she escaped from a cult of gender critical feminists. 😱 If you have the link, put it in the search box. It's been saved multiple times. Use the ARCHIVED link when sharing it, not PenisNews. 3/
For this #TransDayOfVisibility I'm making visible the misogyny, homophobia & threats I've seen from gender extremists, against women, against lesbians, and against other members of the LGBT that refuse to be bullied into giving up our rights.
For this #TDOV2020 I'm making visible the misogyny, homophobia & threats I've seen from gender extremists. Against women, against lesbians, & against other members of the LGBT that refuse to be bullied into giving up our rights. terfisaslur.com
For this #TransDayOfVisibility I'm showing the misogyny, homophobia & threats I've seen from gender extremists--
Against women, against lesbians, & against other members of the LGBT that refuse to be bullied into giving up our rights.
"They are not evaluating any other form of treatment for the problems of ‘transgender and gender-non conforming youth’. Do these children need this treatment? Is it more effective than placebo? This project is actively avoiding answering that question." 1/ firstname.lastname@example.org…
"That poses huge problems. If, for example, there was a control cohort of gender dysphoric children who were given placebos or simply not ‘treated’ at all, and then they grew up into healthy, well-adjusted gay and lesbian adults, the jig may be up for these doctors." 2/
"It would certainly destroy their careers if they were revealed to be wolves in sheep’s clothing, using homophobia to commit a medical experiment on the government’s watch and determine gender non-conformity by the bagginess of a child’s clothes." 3/
I will not support these orgs like Amnesty, UN Women & NOW that claim to speak for us but have #DroppedWomen from their focus. This #InternationalWomensDay I will celebrate those who stand up and fight back! List to follow. >>
> But first I celebrate my mother, one of a kind. She bore me -- along with so many burdens. She gave me life & she gave me tennis lessons when I was in awe of @Martina & just coming out. She eventually accepted my #lesbian life & she died very too young. I miss her. #IWD2020 >
@Wikipedia is running a survey right now & I just gave them an earful about their treatment of gender critical & feminist volunteers & how trans extremists are bullying them off the platform, rewriting feminist & LGBT history, and twisting the truth. /1 surveymonkey.com/r/PWKYRJ3?bann…
This is common behavior from trans extremists on Wikipedia. Actively silencing women & skewing the truth. See the survey in the previous tweet and tell them why you don't donate or trust Wikipedia on LGBT/Feminist topics. /2
Beloved lesbian feminist #MagdalenBerns had her Wikipedia page maliciously tampered with & proposed for deletion after her death. Wikipedia needs to hear from you about these trans extremists defacing people's pages like this! See survey in first tweet. /3
GLOBAL #TransFunding, an incomplete thread. "The social justice grantees of #Arcus’ spring 2019 funding cycle will continue to be laser-focused on legal & media matters to ensure that members of the LGBTI community are protected & positively represented." arcusfoundation.org/partners-work-…
>>"Other partners will continue their work with faith leaders & allies to ensure the acceptance and inclusion of all, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity." >> #TransFunding#Arcus
>>Investigative Reporters & Editors, Inc- to train journalists in East & southern Africa to positively represent & report on the LGBTQI community. Such training will examine areas like the mis-gendering of LGBTQI persons in the media.." >> ire.org
Young #lesbians are part of the reason I resist the trans ideology. As a lesbian who came out in the 80s I have seen trans activists co-opt our struggles and orgs while shaming & guilt-tripping young lesbians into accepting "lady-cock" or even pressuring them into transitioning.
