Transgender kids’ sports and gender-affirming care access are a top priority for Texas’ third special legislative session that began on Monday. Trans Texans and their families tell The 19th they’ve had enough.
Haven’t felt right all day, no energy and trouble keeping focus. Not sure why but hopefully tomorrow will be better after a night’s sleep.
Press secretary Jen Psaki called the images “horrible,” but said she could not yet address what the consequences would be.
Remember the 80’s sex comedy? This is where men learned what girls did in the locker room (or conversely where women learned what men fantasized about what girls did in the locker room). I always think back to the scene in “Stripes” where John Larroquette is using a spyglass to watch female recruits taking a shower and says
‘I wish I was a loofah’.
Such sexy fun times the girls were having where the men were not allowed to go! In these movies, men would go to great lengths, including cross dressing, to catch a glimpse of this sacred palace of sexy fun. And so you get an entire generation that has a very specific reference point for what locker room life is for women…what bathroom life is for women.
Today I have the pleasure and honor of interviewing Iden Crockett, an American trans female artist working in collage, pencil, and ink, and a former firefighter.
Doctors can judge if under-16s can give informed consent to puberty blocker use, the Court of Appeal has ruled.
The appeal was brought by the Tavistock Trust, which runs the UK’s only youth gender identity clinic.
The decision reverses a 2020 ruling that under-16s lacked capacity to give informed consent to the treatment, which delays the onset of puberty.
The original case was brought by Keira Bell, who says the clinic should have challenged her more over transitioning.
She said she was disappointed by the decision, and will seek permission to appeal to the Supreme Court.
Court of Appeal judges said they recognized “the difficulties and complexities” of the issue, but that “it is for the clinicians to exercise their judgement knowing how important it is that consent is properly obtained according to the particular individual circumstances”.
Having some family issues I need to deal with. Hope to be back tomorrow.
Owen Jones is a leftwing journalist who’s been a steadfast trans ally, and recently posted a tweet mentioning online TERF radicalization and also when he recently interviewed trans author Paris Lees talked about TERFs spending all their days immersed in online echo chambers feeding each other’s obsessive hatred of trans women. It’s been a far to frequent occurrence that we’ve seen spree killers in the United States who before committing mass murder have spent an enormous amount of time immersed in online White Supremacist message boards, in fact we don’t even have to look to the United States as recently we had the incel killer who shot dead five people in Plymouth and beforehand had spent months obsessing on incel message boards about his microcystic grievances, so one has to start asking how long before transphobic terfy bigots with their ever increasing obsessive cult of hate towards trans women ends up resulting in one of them actually doing some serious physical harm to one or more trans women?
This thread has information about the person charged with indecent exposure at Wi Spa in June, doesn’t show a sexual predator. Rather it shows someone being criminalized for being unhoused, trans, and a sex worker.
I’m not able to make a proper post for tonight, I’m not even sure when I’ll get home. 😞
