Fascists gonna fascism.
"Retaliation": Texas AG Paxton Demands PFLAG Provide Names, Addresses Of Trans Members
How things are portrayed in the media has a huge impact on public acceptance, so this is a great idea. We need a Bechdel test for portraying trans people in movies and TV too. At the moment, neither climate change nor trans people exist in the vast majority of entertainment.
Fascists, and the mainstream media as well, twist the science on trans kids.
Fact Checked: New Problematic "Finnish Study" Actually Shows Trans Care Saves Lives
Science is entirely on the side of the trans community, including trans kids. This resolution passed 153-9. Every other major medical organization has the same position. The disconnect between science and mainstream media is astounding and shameful.
World's Largest Psych Association Passes Policy Supporting Trans Youth Care By Massive Margin
I'm thinking that if TFG loses the election, he might well flee the country since his legal strategy to avoid being held accountable for his crimes will have collapsed. I can't see him sticking around to actually risk jail time.
Okay a few things…
NO idea how I got on the GOP snail mail spam list 🤮
Enjoy that title while you can, Mike, you won’t have it much longer 😏
Shredding a piece of mail never felt so fracking good. 🤩
The chair of the Yolo CA chapter of Moms 4 Liberty, Beth Bourne lied to her doctors for months about having gender dysphoria.
Eventually she was approved for gender-affirming surgeries, forever proving that if you lie to your doctors for months you can convince them you have gender dysphoria. Shocking!
I have found the lost treasure of Atlantis
@pzmyers Did something happen to freethoughtblogs.com? It appears to have disappeared from all the DNS servers I've been able to check.
I really, really wish I could support the US edition of The Guardian financially, without a penny of it going to the UK Guardian, but I haven't found a way to do that. The UK edition is too transphobic for me to support.
I don't even get this one. Naturally new food products should be carefully screened but this simply seems to be about ... being angry that someone else might not want to eat meat? Just thinking a product meets a need you don't share... so it should be banned?
Herb Greenlee and Mel Shochet, representing the DZero and CDF experiments, respectively, simultaneously submitted papers to Physical Review Letters OTD in 1995. They were announcing that their collaborations had discovered the Top quark at Fermilab.

A neat idea to combat space junk. Satellites made of wood:
YOUR LAST CHANCE TO HEAR… That night of hope and optimism in March 2011 when the transgender outreach group Trans Media Watch signed a ‘Memorandum of Understanding’ with Channel 4 and the BBC aimed at turning a new page in the representation of trans folk on TV and Radio. And it worked too …for a while. My Podcast platform will be closing a week from now so enjoy and save historic events like these whilst you can.
Eat shit, Chaya.
“Make school safe for kids" is like “pro-life," i.e. nothing of the sort.
The bullying and death of an Oklahoma nonbinary student just showed us who really isn’t safe in school
The fascists have declared the trans community public enemy number one and made erasing us their top political issue.
Republicans Issue New Government Shutdown Threat Over Trans People
A bit of a harsh article, but also decent from @Sarahp on the recent spam wave over on TechCrunch: https://techcrunch.com/2024/02/20/spam-attack-on-twitter-x-rival-mastodon-highlights-fediverse-vulnerabilities/
I want to echo what Renaud says: “building federated software is hard”, but also remind and add emphasis that all this is only possible by people donating money to the projects to make them possible in the first place.
Stop making age an "issue." You have fallen into the projection trap set for you by Trump, you idiots....

Pulse check: what are some of the most common misconceptions about how the fediverse works? If you’re part of the fediverse, what was most confusing for you when you first started? Asking for .. some friends 😇
