"Why don't you talk about adoption on twitter dot com, Fox-" usually because the moment you criticize the practice of adoption and the propaganda around it, people lose their utter minds screaming at you, usually with the same propaganda.

It's exhausting. I don't want to do it. "You should want to provide orphans with homes-" most of us aren't orphans.

"You just want bio kids-" No, I want informed, safe adoptions and help for birthparents, not light human trafficking

"But birth parents can be bad-" yeah we know, that's not the point.

My bio mom was a 16 year old, married to a grown man, carrying another grown man's baby, with a grown woman deciding what she'd do with her health and her womb for her. The same grown woman who emancipated her so she could be married to said grown man.

Arianna is 100% correct. I'm not a bloody exception. My story is the norm. People being coerced into giving up children is common. There was family that wanted to take me and raise me, and they were blocked by my maternal grandmother. They couldn't even divulge medical records to the agency.

Sent to me - these are not people who want to just "express opinions". Trans existence is the threat, in their minds. That is why they push conversion therapy. They're not unaware of the consequences. The end goal IS a world where trans people are forced to be cis. "Clarity is calling men men and women women  Nobody is Tweets like the one above are why this sort of thing is happening. It's a deliberate targeting of anywhere that would provide trans healthcare in ANY capacity, because it threatens the end goal of eliminating trans people.

I think this scene was the best evidence of Rowling's morality system - if they're bad people, it's okay for bad things to happen to them. The rules of decency and morality don't apply there. So the heroes can be awful and it's still not bad because the victim deserved it. Slytherin is the perfect example of that, imo. Being a member of Slytherin house - which, according to lore, is decided FOR you, you don't get to pick unless you're Harry - means you're evil and bad by association, and bad things that happen to you are deserved.

Periodic reminder that I was adopted w/out medical records and my biological grandmother purposefully withheld critical information that could've gotten me treatment and prevented my conditions from disabling me, and it was all perfectly legal and conducted through a legit agency Seriously, please do not just suggest adoption as an alternative. It is very difficult to adopt, many of the surrounding practices are still very unethical, and at the end of the day, adoption is for the CHILD'S WELFARE, not so someone else can be a parent.

There's people in my family parroting these sentiments. They don't know I'm trans. I'm not safe to be myself near them. I have to hide. But sure, losing your friends because you're an avowed transphobe is so much harder than my family talking about eradicating people like me. You have to hide your shitty views so people don't start avoiding you? I have to hide my entire life from people I grew up with so they don't decide to hurt me. One of us made a choice in that comparison, and it wasn't me. I don't care if TERFs lose friends. Suck it up.

Once again, after another wave of anti-trans news in the local paper, my mom is worried someone is going to kill me because I'm trans, and once again, I can't tell her that's not realistic.

That is what happens when you spread propaganda that trans people are p*dophiles. There is no faster way to agitate a base - especially a right wing base - than to convince them their children are threatened by someone else's existence. Time and time again we see this pattern repeated, and people are killed for it.

Laurie is right, and to tack on... I feel like folks forget that the thing that brought the police to Stonewall was gender non-conformity, and police officers were checking people's sex in the bathroom to make sure it matched their clothing.

This is where we're headed back to. There's tons of sources on this, and if you're looking for a good starting place to find some, Wikipedia of course breaks it down, with sources

If I'm ever talking about radicalization, just know I'm talking about it to bring awareness of how it can sneak up on you and how you might not recognize it for what it is, NOT to justify falling for it or say it's just a little accident and so easy to do. I know that nuance gets lost a lot, especially on Twitter, where I can't be my usual wordy self. But as an overall note, it's "you think it can't happen to you, and that's what the far right is counting on" and not "oh oops anyone could have fallen into that hole"

Gonna be honest, if you deliberately misrepresent what I'm saying to support your bad faith argument against it, I'm just going to block you. That's not debate, discourse, or discussion. You're not asking if I mean a thing. You're claiming I do, and going from there. I don't expect everyone to agree with me, and I expect to be challenged on things I say, especially by people with differing opinions. Not really going to engage you if you aren't here to have a conversation, though. I have no desire to waste my time with your strawman.

... he was a literal child when he first met her, Helen, I don't think "aunt" has anything to do with fuckability, you feckin' creep Rupert Grint: "I respect this woman but I don't agree with her. She's been something of an aunt figure to me since I was young."
Helen Joyce, on brain worms: "THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU DON'T FIND WOMEN FUCKABLE, YOU DISAGREE WITH THEM"

You know, say what you like, but I think plenty of GC women WERE leftists. And like any leftists, they're susceptible to radicalization, and are being pulled slowly but steadily into a far right movement while we all watch in real time. I think the whole "they're all right wing fascists" is reductive because it doesn't address the very real dangers of radicalization, which we want to pretend like we could never be at risk of. "They were never real leftists" is more comforting than "oh sh*t that could be us."

I think what frustrates me about being neurodivergent is that I am incredibly skilled in a great many things, but live in a society that either doesn't value these skills anymore, or pushes you to monetize them and work in environments antithetical to your productivity. It's also maddeningly frustrating that I'm encouraged to turn everyone of my hobbies and talents into a soulless grind to make the maximum amount of money out of every last second of my life, leading to incredible burnout and eventual mental health crisis just to survive.

Hey Maya we noticed you deleted your wildly unpopular thread calling women "holes", saying the state is to blame for trans women getting r*ped, and being a generally inhuman piece of shit, in favor of sharing this.

Why's that, do you think? It couldn't be that you're trying frantically to backpedal and paint yourself as the victim before you get called out for what you did and rightfully lambasted, is it? Or the fact that you deleted the evidence of any context to hide from your shame?

This. Women generally will universally face similar issues, based on a somewhat universal sense of patriarchy we now have in a global world - but there's too many intersections to say they'll experience it the same way, or with the same intensity in some areas. The issues facing a poor working class woman in America will be vastly different from those facing a poor working class woman in India, for example, but they are united by certain issues of poverty and womanhood. It's important to me not to oversimplify one way or another.

One of the biggest issues with getting treatment for BPD is that the lie that Borderlines are inherently manipulative still persists, and as a result, our expressions of pain and hurt are taken as attempts to garner sympathy rather than genuine emotional expression. Thankfully this is a trend that is phasing out with better understanding of BPD, but can you imagine how you'd feel if you told someone something that hurt you badly, got all vulnerable and cried, and they told you that you were just being manipulative and weren't really upset?

Fun fact, I know I'm severely traumatized and fucked up, and what happened to me was, in fact, Bad, but I still have severe imposter syndrome around it and can never really admit it, not even to myself. Because how do I handle that, you know? One of my friends is a Syrian refugee. Went through some shit there being a young Christian girl without a family. Managed to get out of it. Endured things I can't even fathom. She'd tell me all the time that you can't quantify pain, especially against others. That stuck with me.

I think what kills me about the QT/replies to this, is that they're so blinded by their hatred of trans people, they're not even reading. Anyone who's gone through this kind of treatment/violence is invisible to them, just another stepping stone for transphobia. Even before I came out as trans, I got accosted in bathrooms. The risk for me pre-HRT was always "go to the women's, possibly get assaulted for being a 'man in the women's', go to the men's, get assaulted for being 'an effeminate man' or just being clocked as trans".

If you think cis women are acceptable collateral damage for hindering or harming trans women in any way, you're not critical of gender, nor are you a feminist. You exist only to enforce the status quo and punish non-conformity to it, no matter the form. "My feminism is about REAL women, not-" no it's not, because if it was, you would understand the basic tenants of intersectionality, even when they just apply to cis women. You don't. It's not about changing anything - it's about assimilation into patriarchy.

I think we need to eventually have a discussion about how maternal abuse and TERF entitlement to trans bodies overlaps, and how many of them use the language of motherhood and "protection of children" as a way to cloak their abusive behavior, and how society gives both a pass. For example, the Harry Potter special going on. There's been a few notable TERFs casting JKR in a "betrayed mother" sort of role, as if these cast members are expected to have this dynamic with her. The imposition of motherhood onto them without their input is creepy.
