Welcome to #TransTuesday!

This week we discuss something super important for a lot of trans folks, and yet it so very often goes south and impacts us in so many ways:

CIS SPOUSAL AND PARTNER SUPPORT DURING TRANSITION.

Let's talk about what it looks like, and why it's so important... and what happens when we don't get it.

CIS FRIENDS I NEED YOU TO SHARE THIS WITH *YOUR* CIS FRIENDS.

Happy Trans Day of Visibility everyone. I spent over 6 months writing and rewriting this article that I just published. Most of that time was spent debating whether or not to publish it.

I'm finally coming out; I'm trans. I hope this article helps.

Ben Barres was a trailblazing transgender neurobiologist who promoted equity & diversity.

His pioneering research on glial cells changed science & he became the 1st #trans person admitted into the National Academies of Science.

Barres was a strong advocate for women, early career scientists & the #LGBTQ+ community at a time when few people openly discussed gender identity. https://www.forbes.com/sites/matthewherper/2017/12/28/mourning-ben-barres-the-transgender-scientist-who-changed-neuroscience/ #history #science

PSA to everyone to not use brave browser @brave@mastodon.social, the CEO of Brave Software is bigoted (donated to anti-lgbtqia+ organizations trying to ban gay marriage in the past and still has never addressed it or apologized) and was also against the Covid Lockdowns and is anti-vax. Using brave browser contributes to oppression of LGBTQIA+ ppl and contributes to brave software financially through ads and other means.

I recommend anyone still using brave browser to switch to ungoogled-chromium as a non-bigoted degoogled chromium-based browser alternative. @floccus@fosstodon.org is a good browser extension to use on ungoogled-chromium to sync your bookmarks.

Posting this amazing art ("pink in the night") by Eunnie, who has seemingly not yet joined the fediverse, so that you're not missing out :TransHeart:

I have added full alt text, which was sadly missing from the posts elsewhere.

This week's comic: The things Mike Johnson has said are so over the top that I thought I might place him in the role of my flaming conservative character (hence the flames, in case anyone was wondering about that). It’s almost impossible to exaggerate this man’s theocratic worldview, so I tried to use actual quotes where I could.

Stunned that this isn't getting more attention in the local press, but I guess we do have a lot going down in the ATL at the moment

since the NY Times is doing it's thing again – quoting anti-trans groups to make gender-affirming care for trans youth seem dubious – I will re-up this essay, which includes over 100 peer-reviewed studies and reviews:

Whatever you do, do not use Soapbox for your #fediverse needs.

The creator and maintainer, Alex Gleason, of Soapbox (or Rebased as it was called) is anti-trans and was previously the head of engineering of the Trump-related social network (Truth Social).

He also worked on Poast, which was a social network for neo-nazis and a direct successor to Kiwi Farms.

Steer clear of it.

The State Duma of the Russian Federation passed a bill to "completely ban transgender transition".

On June 14, 2023, during the first reading of the bill on the "total ban on transgender transition," the Minister of Health noted that in addition to the legislative initiative under discussion, he was conducting research work for conversion therapy. This issue was raised by Anatoly Wasserman, who was concerned that people with a "different idea" of their gender role need to be psychologically and psychiatrically "brought to reality." The Minister replied that work is already being done in this direction on the instructions of the President, and a corresponding institute is being created where other "behavioral disorders" and forms of antisocial behavior will also be addressed.

Online grifters, Republicans bureaucrats, and fascist thugs are doubling-down on their attacks against the #LGBTQ+ community and #Pride events.

We're happy to announce a new collection of resources for those looking to mobilize, push back, and defend their communities against these violent threats.

This includes original flyers, a printable handbook for organizers, materials to share on social media, and a list of report-backs from communities across so-called North America about how they organized to defend LGBTQ+ spaces from white supremacists and the far-Right.

I was on WUNC earlier today to chat about The #Science of Kissing on NPR’s Embodied.

It was a treat to meet the other guest, Kadar Small, a photographer, director & filmmaker behind the acclaimed photo series “PDA.” Kadar photographs moments of kissing & intimacy between Black & brown queer folks in public & at home, exploring what this kind of connection looks like through his work.

Latest comic on everyday gun violence in America. For all the rhetoric around the Second Amendment invoking "liberty," guns are limiting our freedom.

the fascist attorney general of Missouri has set up a tip site for complaints about gender transition, hope it doesn't get spammed by long, fake complaints over and over until he takes it down!

A few days ago, I tweeted a flyer about a protest against Jordan Peterson in Seattle. I was subsequently screenshotted by Andy Ngo and mass reported by his goons, resulting in my permanent suspension from twitter.

SO! Please help spread the news: Jordan Peterson is coming to town, and Twitter is censoring the opposition! The original flyers from my tweets are attached. These are autonomous actions.

The petition to remove #LGBT content from the uk curriculum now has 193,002 signatures. (It only needed 100k to be considered for debate in parliament, too)

The counter petition is rapidly gaining ground. It now has 52,837 signatures!

Pls sign if able. British citizens/UK residents have the *right* to sign, boost otherwise! 👇
