👏🏻“Federal appeals court has overturned a transgender sports ban, finding that the law violates Title IX, the federal civil rights law that prohibits sex-based discrimination in schools.

The ruling Tuesday from the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals blocks a West Virginia law banning transgender girls from playing on girls’ sports teams”

@GottaLaff The people who want to ban trans athletes from women's sports to "protect the sport" would overturn Title IX in a NY minute if they could.

Updating documents in the 21st century should be easy and secure anyway so this is good news.

How can teens be tried as adults and sent to prison for life in the U.S. yet not be allowed to affirm their gender?


~ Supreme Court allows Idaho to enforce ban on gender-affirming care for nearly all transgender minors for now~

This week, @prismnpen's writers cry out our human right to the dignity religious leaders, journalists and other elements of society seem determined to withhold from , , and other humans.

We are not depraved, , despite your Church’s dignity-destroying assertion!

While it's important to acknowledge famous names like Christine Jorgensen and Lili Elbe,it's also important to talk about other trans women
who might be less well known,but have had their own big impact on Trans history

FOXニュースの司会者であるジェシー・ウォッタースは「ゲイの子どもたちが性別適合手術を強制されてトランスジェンダーとして扱われている」という、定番の陰謀論に言及した…と伝える海外記事。この手の主張は今も嫌になるくらい目立ちますが、こうした考え方は、トランス当事者の多様な性的指向&恋愛的指向(異性愛・同性愛・両性愛・無性愛など)の主体性を全否定するものです。メディアがこんな主張を堂々と展開するのは恐ろしいですが、差別はやっぱりメディアの責任でもありますね。 #LGBTQ

These deranged people are the fundamentalist intending to impose rule over the rest of us, to eliminate all like in Afghanistan, to execute folks and like Gaza and Iran, to bring back like in Libya and Qatar, and make America a Saudi style ethno-state in the flavor. They intend to turn all schools into hellholes and your kids if you dare to let them be themselves. They intend to deport and force the poor into servitude with no or at all, including no or since only the rich deserve a decent life - their disgusting god told them so while they were here wallowing on the floor and babbling.

THIS IS OUR FUTURE IF MAGATS ARE NOT VOTED OUT AND KEPT OUT PERMANENTLY: rule by hateful misogynist nutjobs using POLICE STATE VIOLENCE to enforce their whackadoodle beliefs onto us.

I know. But did you notice how in the midst of their "spiritual experience" that supposedly "overwhelms" them and causes them to speak some heavenly language, a couple of them realized the optics were REALLY BAD and looked up and around to see if they could see anybody filming them? Yeah. So much for overwhelming ecstasy. It's all an act. And if it was real, why would they care if anybody saw it?

What is alarming are the points in the review that suggest that, as people, we don’t know our bodies, our feelings, and our emotions.

Students across the nation are speaking out Friday Spurred on by the recent spate of laws aimed at limiting the rights and visibility of LGBTQ Americans.

This year, for the first time, the “Day of Silence” – a yearly event where students take a vow of silence to symbolize the impact of homophobia and the LGBTQ voices that are marginalized by bullying – will morph into a day of action called the “Day of (NO) Silence.”

"Author JK Rowling has reignited a row with Harry Potter stars Emma Watson and Daniel Radcliffe over the issue of transgender identity and rights.

The writer hit out at "celebs" who she said had "used their platforms to cheer on the transitioning of minors".

"Rowling said she spoke out about transgender issues in part due to her personal experience of domestic abuse and sexual assault."

Yeah, by her ex-husband who WASN'T TRANSGENDER.

Christians should be banned from serving in Government, as their primary loyalty isn't to their oath, their country, or the people but to their #RightwingDeathCult. When you are elected to office you serve everyone, not just those who believe the same as you do. That includes LGBTQ people.

@NormanDunbar

Exactly.
People have been doing that for a long time— starting with religious leaders who interpret things themselves and spin it for their gain.
And then by making people afraid, they look only to the particular religious leader for answers (and do whatever they say).

Jason Sattler says that if you don't want to read the 920-page prescription of policies Project 2025 informs us Republicans will enact if given control of the federal government again, then read just one sentence, which sums up the whole project:

"'But the Dobbs decision is just the beginning.'

That would be the governing philosophy of a second Trump regime."

Betreiber:innen einer LGBTI+-Bar in verhaftet

"Nachdem die russische Regierung die LGBTI-Bewegung als „terroristische Organisation“ einstufen ließ, wurden nun zwei Betreiber:innen der + Bar „Pose“ in der russischen Stadt Orenburg verhaftet und angeklagt. Das Ganze erfolgt auf Grundlage des 2023 durch den russischen Staat eingeführten Gesetzes, nach dem die „internationale LGBTQ-Bewegung“ als extremistische Organisation eingestuft wird...."

Is there something inherently “unmanly” about being joyful?
I can’t help wondering why certain thoughts, feelings, and experiences are still so commonly gendered — across a variety of platforms.
