I've been tracking anti-transgender legislation for 3 years. I often get asked in DMs, "I live in x state, should I flee/transition/come out?" So I've decided to make a risk assessment for future anti-trans legislation. Here is a map, with an explainer thread. 🧵u

I’ve just pre-ordered my copy of what’s going to be one of the best books about #Scientology of all time. @MikeRinder was a member for 50 years, escaped in 2007, and he’s got terrific stories to tell about the cult, L Ron Hubbard, and David Miscavige simonandschuster.com/books/A-Billio…
There’s the universe created by people who know there r only 2 genders. There’s the universe created by all who know gender is 3 or more—and the universe we each create when we discuss gender & discover points of agreement. Et voila! The multiverse of gender!
My mom sold our home & everything that doesn’t fit in our car because the state I was born in is not safe for trans kids. Anyways… happy Independence Day to everyone who gets to celebrate that 🇺�Im

Today is my daughter’s birthday—Jessica Leah Baxter is 49. #scientology has convinced her that I am an evil person, dangerous. So they’ve kept us apart for 40 years—not a single word. If you can, wish her happy birthday for me and tell her daddy loves her
It isn’t a skirt if it’s a kilt. It isn’t a dress if it’s worn by a priest. It isn’t a gown if it’s a toga. Your gender rules are idiotic.

I’m curious. I know that LGBTQIA]etc folks have existed in one form or another throughout humanity’s history. What cultures/civilizations/nations have existed in that history that have welcomed LGBTQIAetc people? Subculture of Weimar comes to mind. And?
If a corporation can be defined as a person, why not redefine vaginas as AK47s. That way they’d be free of governmental restrictions by those who care about ‘the sanctity of life’.

I feel it is my duty as a witch and herbalist-in-training to say this: Just because it's a plant doesn't mean it's safe. ONLY get an herbal ab0rtion from experienced herbalists. There is going to be a lot of misinformation about herbal ab*rtions spread in the coming days/weeks

Good one! This is so tricky, cuz what gives them the idea that it’s “just a phase?” Where did they learn that idea? Yep I’m working on this one, thanks #genderqueery twitter.com/alexcoheninla/…
Not saying any other theories of gender are wrong. Au contraire. Saying that gender is exactly what you and everyone else thinks it is… and that’s the problem with gender #genderqueery

I’ve come up with a new theory of gender Before I go all “Here it is, lookee lookee,” I wanna make sure it’s as timely & inclusive as possible. I’m looking for specific points to address, questions to speak to. Got any? Please answer with #genderqueery

Gender begins the moment we hear our birth assignment and think “Yes, I am,” or “No, I’m not,” or “Huh, we’ll see about that.” And whether we know it or not, our gender keeps growing and changing from that point to this very moment, and from here on out.
Every car I’ve ever driven was alive. The ones I owned all had names and personalities. It was fun and it seemed somehow respectful. How about you?

Cis people aren't ever going to experience being the only one in a room, surrounded by thousands of trans people who are laughing at the very idea of who and what a cis person is. This is the "power" side of prejudice plus power twitter.com/raggedrae/stat…
