In case you didn't already realize, the panic over trans women in sports is just the newest variation of the ongoing *sexist* panic about women in sports, period. This is how cisgender female athletes are treated regularly, which is part of why most support trans inclusion.

It's 2022 and I guess some of y'all need to be reminded that it's not "gay marriage." Marriage as a legal contract does not have a sexual orientation. It's 👉marriage equality👈 because it's about whether ALL people have the same right to marry, or just some people.
Pitch call: @them is looking for reported features about whats it's like to be a queer student or teacher in the US right now. Classroom censorship, student organizing, bullying, religious curricula, trans students in sports and single-sex schools, etc ✉️ [email protected]

Teachers in Texas being shot at for handing out books with LGBTQ characters at Pride. Librarians in Iowa being threatened to the point where the entire staff quits, closing the library. What will it take for @TwitterSafety to stop "groomer" libel?… least 55% of GOP voters nationally support marriage equality - and the percentage has increased every year since 2015 when marriage became legal nationally. But, only 22% of the GOP conference voted to codify marriage. (3/5)…

Life in Texas after @GregAbbott_TX: "The kids went to school each day with a piece of paper saying they did not consent to be interviewed, told to hand it to any child protective services agent who might approach them."
After nearly two decades in media, I'm a pretty jaded reader. But this piece from @maddiecarlisle2, about American refugee families fleeing red states to protect their LGBTQ children, brought tears to my eyes.…

MISINFORMATION ALERT 🚨 Fact: MPV (monkeypox virus) can be transmitted through any skin-to-skin contact or contact with contaminated clothes or linens. It is not a sexually transmitted disease. Check@glaadD's factsheet for more info and common……H
Reddit will now enforce their hate speech policy on content that utilizes the groomer libel. Content that equates LGBTQ people to groomers and pedophiles will violate the hate speech policy. Reddit is now more proactive than Twitter. Your move @TwitterSafety.

Finally, be aware of stigma and misinformation. MPV (monkeypox virus) has disproportionately impacted MSMs but there are cases that are not in the LGBTQ community too — MPV can spread in ways similar to MRSA and is in no way limited to any one population. #MPVfacts
Contact your local representatives in Congress and other elected officials to push for expanded testing and vaccines in your area. Many officials are already hearing from the community and taking action. #MPVfacts…
Know the #MPVfacts: keep track of MPV (monkeypox virus) case counts in your state via the CDC map. Watch for updates on testing, vaccines, and treatment through your local health department.…
Amid concern over vaccine shortages, know that 800,000 more doses are on the way. Immunocompromised folks (HIV+ for example) and people with known contact with MPV (either socially or at a venue) are prioritized for the two-dose vax regimen. #MPVfacts…
See your healthcare provider if you notice a rash or a lesion. If you don’t have a provider or insurance, go to a public health or sexual health clinic. Read up about what to look for and do, and ways to stay safe. #MPVFacts
Monkeypox virus (MPV) can be passed to anyone with close skin-to-skin contact with a person who has it. Check… to see if you're eligible for the MPV vaccine, and stay connected with your local health department to see when & where the vaccine is available.
As MPV (monkeypox virus) cases rise, it's important to know what to look for and how to get help. 👉Anyone👈 can get MPV. It has impacted many gay and bi men, but cases are not limited to the LGBTQ community. Know the facts, share the facts, and stay informed. THREAD 5wV

According to @glaad's 2022 SMSI, 66% of LGBTQ social media users faced *severe* harassment over the past 12 months—meaning doxxing, violent threats, stalking and sexual harassment, etc. NBC's @JoYurcaba talks about how the rise in terms like "groomer" are linked.…

[Fmr Spokesperson] Jason VanTatenhove implies that bloodshed was the point on January 6th and says we're lucky there weren't more deaths. Also warns that USA could spin into disaster if Trump is not stopped from involvement in 2024 election.
This Oath Keepers testimony is WILD. Former spokesperson for the group says that Trump gave them legitimacy and the belief that they could become "a paramilitary force." I mean, no duh, but it's wild to hear it said from within.
A friend of mine has a FTW tattoo and she told her grandma it meant "forever two wheels" because she likes bicycles so much 🥰

I've got a new essay up on @HuffPost about what kids (+ queens) can learn from Drag Queen Story Hour:… Teaser: “drag can teach us all to be caring citizens by embracing complexity, doubling down on our imaginations, and standing up for what we believe in.“
