It's official: I have acquired blahaj.

My wife and I went to IKEA to get some things for the new house and this was my first time going to IKEA! So...I was required by law to secure everyone's favorite fish...and ended up getting a big one and a small one... because.

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: #trans #transgender #LGBTQ #science

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.

My sister lives in a small town in the lost countryside of Brazil

While there, her and my BIL met an older gentleman.

The older gentleman is from a Germanic family. Many people in that region of Brazil are. Thus, he has a Germanic surname.

Unfortunately for him. That surname is 'Porn'.

I don't know if that surname means anything somewhere in central #europe -- Doesn't matter for the intents of this silly little story.

Mr. Porn, see, owns a small business that drives people around in busses and vans. — A — Transportation business.

Sometimes. The #towerOfBabel bestows a gift upon humanity.

(Edit: woah this blew up very suddenly, and four whole days after the original post. That's kinda spooky. Hello to all the new people.)

A photograph of the side of a bus that is driving by, while it is slightly blurry due to movement, it clearly says "TRANSPORN"

Hi y’all. Me and my wife are #queer and #trans with a trans dependent, and we have been fundraising since March. With your support, we escaped Ohio and have relocated to Illinois!

But we still need your help. We are really struggling with bills, and we need donations more than ever. Read our story here:

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.

Hello! I'm Sadie and I'm trying Mastodon again after a long hiatus.

I'm a #trans woman working in marketing in the games industry, and at night I'm into football, exercise, board games, video games, self care, prosecco and watching too many FFXIV reaction videos.

I'm keen to share in others' #transjoy and show my progress through #selfie posts from time to time. I need more trans people in my life and I miss the connections I made here last time.

That's my #introduction. Thanks for having me on this server ❤️

Welcome to #TransTuesday! I’ve talked so many times about how trans people and cis people really aren’t all that different, but there’s one way most cis people never realize that may just blow your mind. Strap in for CIS PEOPLE GET GENDER AFFIRMING HEALTHCARE TOO.

This one is VITAL for cis people to see. Cis friends, please boost this thread! We REALLY need cis folks to understand what's going on here.

I feel a connection here with #trans people taking endless selfies.

It's an act of self-love in a life until then filled with self-loathing.

I loathed being in photos until I transitioned I hated it and wanted to destroy every image taken by someone. They wanted to appreciate me on their terms, I wanted to die.

Now, I don't doll up and take photos for the appreciation of anyone but myself. I get to appreciate myself on my terms.

I don't think it's vain to take pride in yourself. Our transition is 100% for us and no one else. Even if they always try to make it about them.

The thing about this is that sculptures like these in art history were for the male gaze. Photoshop a phone to it and suddenly she's seen as vain and conceited. That's why I'm 100% for selfie culture because apparently men can gawk at women but when we realize how beautiful we are we're suddenly full of ourselves... 

“You painted a naked woman because you enjoyed looking at her, put a mirror in her hand and you called the painting “Vanity," thus morally condemning the woman whose nakedness you had depicted for you own pleasure.” — John Berger, Ways of Seeing

I so love The Onion 🤣

Welcome to #TransTuesday!

This week’s topic is vital to trans people being seen and treated equally by society, and it’s just as important for cis people to understand.

Time to root out the darkness within as we combat INTERNALIZED TRANSPHOBIA.

This involves discussing ways we may not be kind to ourselves or others. Please read the whole thing before getting angry about it. This is important and we need to talk about it.

Gender-affirming care—for ADULTS—is now predictably under attack in #Texas. This is part of a Republican plan of genocide underway against #trans people. We need cis allies to be loud and angry on our behalf. Pay attention, this doesn't end here or with us: via @texastribune

it's just red. it's a red flag.

”Employees are expected to comply with this dress code in a manner consistent with their biological #gender.”—#Texas Department of #Agriculture memorandum

Ag Dept employees received an unwelcome surprise in a new dress code issued last week that seems aimed at oppressing #transgender and #nonbinary workers, reports Digital Editor Kit @oconnell based on a document leaked to us:

#transphobia #LGBTQIA+ #news #politics #USpol #trans #HumanRights #GregAbbott #Republicans
Screenshot of “Texas Department of Agriculture Dress Code and Grooming Policy,” with Commissioner Sid Miller’s name and seal at the top. In the opening section labelled objective: “All employee’s appearance should reflect the culture, dignity and professionalism of the Texas Department of Agriculture. All employees, regardless of assignment, are expected to present themselves in a professional manner that cultivates a favorable impression from coworkers, other government officials, agency customers and the general public. Employees are expected to comply with this dress code in a manner consistent with their biological gender. [The previous sentence has been highlighted in yellow.] Basic elements for appropriate attire across the board consist of clothing that is in neat and clean condition.” The rest of the screen shot explains that this dress code applies to everyone at TDA, that supervisors should exercise discretion and make sure everyone looks professional. People sent home to change won’t be compensated, and in general, business attire is expected.

This week's comic: Certain media outlets are falling for the GOP strategy of treating trans people as some kind of national emergency

#cartoon #trans #transgender #media #journalism

1. In South Carolina, GOP lawmakers have proposed making abortion anytime after fertilization a homicide subject to the death penalty.

Fig. 1 - murder
Fig. 2 - not murder

2. Gov. DeSantis took over Florida's high school athletics board a week after it voted against mandatory menstrual cycle reporting.

3. Two Idaho state lawmakers have introduced a bill that would make it illegal to administer a COVID mRNA vaccine.


4. I've got a story on the growing extremism of red state governments.

Sorry, there's no space -- we've already got six articles on the 'trans problem'!

Help wanted! So the anti-transgender reporting form on the Missouri AG’s website only allows one submission per IP address. But the site is also available via IPv6. I’ve written a bot to submit ChatGPT-generated garbage to the form, but I need someone with some IPv6 infrastructure to help me launch it. Any hackers want to help? Boosts appreciated.

Have you reached out to your elected official yet about the ongoing war on #trans people?

If not, it's time you did.

Here's a link to the Congress, where you can find out your local congressperson's contact details.

And here's the same for the Senate:

Even if you didn't vote for them, WRITE TO THEM. CALL THEM.

Even if you're not #trans, #nonbinary or #Genderqueer, go ahead and #BeAnAlly.


#USPol requires EVERYONE to play their part.

I think it's relevant to re-post an important blog post I've written, in the past.

An Important Reminder

Hello, I thought it didn’t need to be said, but here’s something I’ve come to have to repeat recently:

just because you don’t like a trans person, for whatever reason, does NOT mean that the way you should be aggro towards them is by misgendering/deadnaming them, purposefully doubting their identity, or otherwise being transphobic towards them. that just undermines the rights and efforts of others, too, for no reason.

if you dislike someone, that’s fine, dislike them, but don’t show that in a way that would cause needless harm to others who did nothing wrong.

Don’t spread hatred and harm at or about a group of people, just because one person who happens to be a part of that group has caused you upset for completely otherwise (non-gender/transness/identity) related reasons.

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!

Would suggest "the 1st [known] #trans person admitted"

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 also a strong advocate for women, early career scientists & the #LGBTQ+ community at a time when few people openly discussed gender identity.

South Dakota Republicans are forcing #trans children to detransition

“The party of small government” is forcing doctors to refuse or to stop providing care even if treatment is in the process of being administered

HB1080 was passed 30-4 then signed into law by Republican governor Kristi Noem in efforts to drive our most at-risk youth into higher suicide rates

There is no other reason for this cruelty.
