Over the last 2 years a rash of crowdfunders have suddenly popped up from a handful of anti-trans “gender critical” individuals.

Some have had single donations over £12k from anonymous sources!

I’ve investigated and can reveal they’ve raised over £280k!!! 😳

Important thread/
The “Gender Critical” crowdfunder phenomenon started with Kellie-Jay Keen-Minshull aka “Posie Parker”, for a ‘legal fund’ after she was questioned by police for harassment and transphobic hate speech.

£12,274 was raised

The case never went to trial.
While Posie used some of the £12k to pay off her very expensive lawyer, the remainder has been used to kickstart her anti-trans t-shirt/ poster “business” - making more money to campaign against trans people/ take trips to America/ London with her anti-trans campaigning buddies!

The “right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness” in the US is being made an absolute mockery of by #abortion supporters, #jihad supporters, #racism supporters, perpetrators of violence against #LGBT people, people who demand services from businesses who have…
…legal right to refuse service, those who deface religious buildings, the religious who abuse their religious teachings to control their population with violence, sexual abuse, et cetera, the nonreligious who impose their views on the religious because they see themselves as…
…”superior,” and many other people.

I believe you have a right to say your piece and to try to elect people who agree with you. But I do not believe much of these to be liberating.

Who is "Tracy Shaw" who started the @SafeSchools_UK transphobic pressure group? Well for some reason she is using her maiden name, not her given name to spread her transphobia and smear @MunroeBergdorf #TERFLEAKS
@SafeSchools_UK @MunroeBergdorf Well, Tracey Gardner wrote the "open letter" to @PeterWanless in her married name. So why is she trying to hide, and what safeguarding experience does she have. What education experience does she have. What experience with trans people does she have ... (Spoiler: Not much)
@SafeSchools_UK @MunroeBergdorf @PeterWanless She does however have a lot of experience spreading the transphobic hate from groups like "Fair Play for Women" on Facebook. Cosying up to Posie Parker who is busy hoping Lily Madigan gets beaten up. Liking appalling posts comparing trans people to date rape drugs...

This week has witnessed yet another attack by anti-trans lobbyists towards an organisation showing support for trans people - this time @NSPCC was targeted 😞

I’ve been studying the techniques used by trans-hostile activists, and thought I’d share my findings here.

Thread....
For background, @NSPCC was criticised for appointing @MunroeBergdorf as their first #LGBT ambassador, and following a pile-on by anti-trans campaigners, the NSPCC retracted their position - An action that’s been widely criticised...
pinknews.co.uk/2019/06/09/chi…
The complaint was initiated by a days-old twitter account, with the ‘official sounding’ name of ‘Safe Schools Alliance’ and was quickly amplified by The Times journalist - and known anti-transgender campaigner - Janice Turner (@victoriapeckham)

1 / #LGBTPrideMonth
On this day, June, the 7th, in 1954, Alan Turing a gay man, committed suicide after being convicted of "gross indecency" according to the anti-gay laws then prevalent in England. If you are reading this, you owe it to Turing.
amazon.com/dp/069116472X/…
2 / Alan Turing was an English mathematician who, together with a few other brilliant minds, fathered the field of research that gave humanity the computer, software design and artificial intelligence. Are his biographies exaggerated?
washingtonpost.com/national/healt…
3 / Maybe, but maybe it also misses some of Turing's great contributions (article above). The movie based on the book "Alan Turing: the Enigma" inserted fictional elements.

THREAD:

#HappyPrideMonth - I need to tell you all a truth about the #LGBT. They are a mess. STDs, mental health issues, drug rates, and unhealthy behaviors abound.

I know because I’ve been out for well over 15 years. I have seen it all.
I don’t have any hatred towards the community. Far from it. But they are being led astray by people who tell them that their path to happiness lies in relying on government to legislate “acceptance.”
Big government can never be the answer. I see the LGBT heading down the same path as Blacks...a path to permanent victimhood status as pawns of the left

People are generally confused with the #cottonceilling and #getthelout as they truly believe the LGBT is one happy family. Here is the thing:
Straight men:
how would you feel about being told you are a bigot for refusing to have sex with a man who id as a woman knowing that 80% of transwomen are non op (genital intact males).
How would you feel being told you are a nazi and a transphobe for exclusively dating women?
Gay men: have you ever been told by transmen that you are bigoted for not performing cunilungus? Have you received rape threats for not doing so? Have u been told u R nazis for not accepting vaginas as male organs?

Une ministre décide de rejouer le mauvais jeu de dupes « moi ou le déluge » en faisant croire que le seul adversaire du RN et de l’extrême droite serait un parti qui fait a aggloméré des conservateurs et réactionnaires.

HES est fière d’avoir sur la liste @enviedeurope deux membres de son bureau national.

@ARNAUDHADRYS et @tictux sur une liste qui défendra l’égalité des droits en #Europe pour toutes les familles et défendre les libertés sur notre continent #euelections2019 #lgbt
Quand on tente de se faire passer pour le seul rempart contre l’extrême droite alors que les politiques que mènent son gouvernement sont d’une nature plus qu’équivoques, c’est un sacré culot.

This story I covered this week flew under the radar. It shouldn't have, especially not the week Trump attacked #LGBT people. And the comment I got from Trump's team was...telling.
1/
#Buttigieg targeted by right-wing operatives in antigay sex-assault smear epgn.com/news/national/…
Trump's team is worried about #Buttigieg rising. And they will be more upset now that the Buttigieges are on the @TIME cover because we've never had an out gay candidate in US history. (The not-so-veiled #homophobia from self-styled allies over it has been distressing.)
2/
Trump and Pence have been ginning up their "Evangelical" base with anti-#LGBTQ rhetoric and policy. So Burkman, whose firm reps the Family Research Council (Betsy DeVos's dad's anti-gay hate group)doing this smear was quite the suspect timing.

For 2yrs Trump's DOJ has actively fought lesbian & gay employment discrimination cases, even when the lower courts have found in favor of lesbian & gay plaintiffs on the clearly delineated basis of Title VII.
These cases & the trans military ban make the #EqualityAct imperative.
I've been writing about this Trump DOJ issue for 2yrs. It's highly unlikely, given Gorsuch's and Kavanaugh's anti-gay stances that the #SCOTUS will find for #LGBT plaintiffs. But at least in hearing the cases, the issue of how unequal LGBT are is raised.

curvemag.com/News/Will-Trum…
This #SCOTUS case is critical because most Americans aren't even aware of the breadth of discrimination against #LGBT people as I explained here in this news story:

New studies show fewer Americans think LGBT people face discrimination epgn.com/news/national/…

1/ Short thread 🎖️

Today, we piggybacked on @thedailytexan story about a #UT student who says he lost his ROTC scholarship due to Trump's ban on #transgender troops.
Since then, we've found out some more details.

dallasnews.com/news/higher-ed… #LGBT #LGBTQ #trans
2/ Map Pesqueira, 19, told @thedailytexan he lost a three-year scholarship he'll begin receiving next school year because he has taken steps to medically transition.

We reached out to the DoD for comment.

dailytexanonline.com/2019/04/16/ut-… #txlege #LGBT #LGBTQ
3/ The DoD told us they were not aware of Pesqueira's case.

But a spokesperson told me the new "policy states that anyone enrolled in ROTC for the upcoming academic year falls under the 2016 policy." Seemingly, this means Pesqueira could keep his scholarship.

So what gives?

"Redefining gender and sexual identity is the greatest threat to the moral fiber of America," says @GovMikeHuckabee whose daughter has lied to the American people for over a year without compunction. christianpost.com/news/mike-huck…
Running in the 2016 #GOP primary, Huckabee pledged to do everything possible to harm #LGBT people, to call the National Guard on #abortion clinics and arrest Hiillary Clinton.
christianpost.com/news/mike-huck…
In 2016 I wrote about @GovMikeHuckabee championing #KimDavis, a Kentucky clerk who refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples.
She had been married four times, but thought gay and lesbian people were harming marriage.
