British anti-trans groups are not part of the civil rights movement
Cardcaptor Emily has done an interesting study of British anti-trans activist groups. She has looked at to what extent their twitter followers overlap with the ones of women’s, children’s and LGBT right activists.
After all, they claim that their anti-trans activism is meant to protect these vulnerable groups, so it would make sense that they were integrated with the wider network of humanitarian organisations.
It turns out there is very little or no overlap.
Here’s Emily’s twitter thread:
Anti-trans groups often claim that they are chiefly concerns with Women's, Children's and LGBT rights / activism. When we look at the overlap between their followers and followers of activist groups we see very little evidence of any involvement at all.
Here is a matrix of the similarity between various anti-trans groups and other activist groups for causes they claim to be fighting for. Almost seems like two very separate communities doesn't it?
[The first six organisations listed represent anti-trans activists.]
The diagram above is darker when the two groups share many followers in common, and lighter when they share few. The highest score between an anti-trans group and the other groups listed is 17. Compared to the score of 64 for overlap between Women's Aid and Domestic Violence UK.
Slightly odd for for groups of people who claim to concerned about women's rights, children's rights and LGBT rights to not really have ANY significant community connection to rights groups in those areas.
In fact, the communities seem so distinct, I started wondering what a network of these accounts might look like. I can't check all the followers, but I can look at the 13 main groups I've listen above.
SO here's there network, drawn on a circle. Thick green lines indicated mutual following. Thin blue arrows indicate that a group follows the one that the arrow points to (but they are not followed back). [The red dots indicate British anti-trans organisations.]
And would you look at that? All the anti-trans groups follow each other, and several follow mainstream organisations, but none of the mainstream orgs follow them back... Almost as though they aren't genuinely involved in any activism in those areas.
In fact, if we completely delete the one-way follows and keep only mutual follows... Huh, they really are two separate communities. However, the anti-trans group are ALL connected to each other, despite sharing little in common according to mission statements.
I think we can cast some SERIOUS doubt on the claims that these groups seriously represent - or are seriously involved with - activist or interest groups for women, children or LGBT people.
Read the thread with additional comments here.

Three Moments I Enjoyed In the Luca Novelization
1) Of course, I am crazy about the most famous line from the book: “I was never gonna see him again!” Luca reveals that he ran away from home not only to escape his suffocating parents but to live with Alberto. This provides adds further context to the already fruity “they were going to send me away from everything I love,” which is in the movie. So sad this line was left out! Anyways--
2) Alberto hugs Luca after being rescued. Again, I felt that this touching moment had romantic implications, and it was also left out of the movie.
So sad this storyboard was never animated! Anyways--
3) Last but not least, a wonderful moment that is actually in the movie: The farewell scene manages to warm and break your heart simultaneously. I just love the way Steve Behling depicted it:
If you do not see the blatant romantic context, then you are either homophobic and refuse to see it, or you are marinated in a suffocating gauze of heteronormativity. Either way I pity you.
Moreover, I pity myself and everyone who has experienced Luca brainrot; we are so excited that we had this almost-gay representation. Still, we have never had a Pixar movie as queer-coded as this, I have high hopes for how future projects will turn out.

OK I JUST NEED TO TALK ABOUT FEAR STREET FOR A FUCKING SECOND
Fear Street is so fucking brilliant because up until the last second, you think that the bad guy is this witch from 1666 who's just pissed off for no reason and is cursing people for the hell of it
BUT NO later you find out that she was never really a witch, she was just a lesbian who was being scapegoated by a white man who used mob mentality to turn everyone against her and profit off the way women, especially queer women and women of color are viewed by society
However, a different pissed off lesbian murders him in the end and it's just fucking beautiful
