understanding sex based oppression is a real thing is not a hate movement, yall are jut misogynists lmao
radfems interpreting "transphobia against trans women exists" as "sexism doesn't exist" is the kind of absolute batshit idea that should preclude anyone from taking them seriously

literally most people do not care if you as a cis person don’t want to date a trans person i legitimately do not give a shit but like. if you misgender/dead name a trans person and refuse to recognise their actual gender then you are a piece of shit and may i say fuck you

CLOWNS. UTTER CLOWNS.
I thought they’d at least have enough sense to crawl back under the rock from whence they came. Alas, I overestimated them. Fuck terfs.

Azealia Banks is being openly transphobic and no one has been speaking about it except for a few trans people who I follow
People have been trying to explain to her in the comments but she just continues to spew TERF ideology.

Look, I don't post on this website. I lurk. But I do want to say smth for once.
As someone who just turned 22, I'm older than a lot of people in this fandom. A pretty significant part of this fandom is much, much younger than me, often somewhere between 10-15 years old, and a huge part of this fandom is lgbtqia and a lot of them are just now figuring themselves out.
So when the ccs they look up to, use their platform to loudly and openly declare their support to the community then absolutely no one has a right to criticise these kids, or anyone else for feeling reassured, validated, or just happy about it.
Is it the height of allyship? No. Is it basic human decency? Ideally, yes.
But what a lot of this fandom is just too young to remember (and tbh, I'm almost too young too) is how utterly shit the gaming space was just 5-7 years ago.
Gamergate harassed female and lgbt people to the point of actually endangering their lives purely because they dared to be visible and loud in a male cishet dominated space.
Hell, switch to a different fandom and you'll still see people complaining how female protagonists aren't sexualized enough and how PC culture is ruining games.
The fact that this fandom, which, just a few days ago, reached almost 1 million concurrent live viewers for mcc and which is large enough to get "Dogboy" trending just because a creator tweeted "bark" on twitter, is so agressively lgbtqia friendly is honestly a miracle.
You have streamers actively educating themselves everytime they learn smth new, you have others donating thousands to lgbt charities and others curating their audience by banning homophobes and racists with prejucide, so that their audience is comfortable, you have them creating an smp that basically functions as a homonormative society and male streamers unafraid to treat their male friends with love and affection, etc..
Are they perfect? Hell no. Are they largely white (presumably) cishet guys? Yes. (Though I don't want to diminish the contribution of streamers like Eret, Antfrost, Niki, Puffy, Velvet, Scott, etc. (for lgbt) and skeppy, TapL, Quackity, Ponk, etc. (for poc)). Are their tweets basic human decency? Also yes.
But can you take it for granted? Sadly no.
So if you saw Dream, Tommy, Tubbo, Phil's, Ranboo's, etc. Pride month tweets earlier and felt happy about them? You are within your complete right to feel that way.
In an ideal world we wouldn't need to celebrate these occurances, but we don't live in that ideal world, so if a cc's words bring you comfort while you're figuring things out, good for you.
I think it's important to occasinally put this fandom in a gamer fandom history perspective and see how insanely far we've come in just the last 5 years. If you'd told me 5 years ago that one of the biggest and most active fandoms on the internet 2020 and 2021 would be an agressively lgbt friendly minecraft community, where support comes both from the bottom up as well as from up top, I would not have believed you.
I don't think we have to or should put cc's on a pedastal for this, but I do think it's sometimes worth remembering where we came from and where we are now and how goddamn lucky we are for it.
Edit: excuse my punctuation. It's 4am and I'm typing this on my phone /lh

Transphobic group ‘ForWomenScot’ using the fucking ongoing Afghanistan situation as an angle to attack trans people.
Take a fucking day off, you pathetic losers.

You will always be a woman, your biology betrays you every second of every day.
Wow! I've never gotten one of these asks before so ngl seeing the first few words of this notification and then opening it to find that the whole thing is written with the prose of a wannabe supervillain looking to finally, just once maybe, be taken seriously pwetty please??, is absolutely senDING ME asdfghjh-- XD
But sorry anon, sorry, like I say, I know you sent this expecting to be taken seriously, so I guess I'm duty-bound to give you the same due respect that you've so generously given unto me in ur message that nobody asked for 😔👌🏻.
What I mean to say is: "wow😲, wise stranger who is so brave they can’t share their world-shaking wisdoms without hiding behind an anonymous Tumblr ask😤💪🏻, I’ve never thought of it that way! 🤔🤯 Your single sentence of regurgitated rhetoric has shaken my sense of self to it’s queer little core 😱😔🙏🏻. I will °˖✧repent✧˖° for having lived a foolish life of icky-wicky Trans™ 🤢🤮 existence up ‘til this moment, and comply with cisgenderism immediately. 🚻 You are a genius, your meat is huge, and ev'wybody wespects you so so many for ur totawy owiginal big bwain ideas. 🥺💖"
I'm also vewy sowwy that me minding my business and existing without ever having interacted with you in any capacity offended you enough to warrant sending this ask my way, I really should have been more considerate of the fact that all clowns have a chronic phobia of Trans folk who have actually passed the vibe check because they don't have a rancid attitude that betrays them as a fuckin' idiot every second of every day. 😢😔🙏🏻

support Polish lgbtq teens
Hey guys, you probably heard about the situation of queer folks in Poland. The ruling party has made homo- and transphobia into a new national virtue. Around 1/3 of local authorities adopted resolutions about fighting “gender ideology”. Gender transition in Poland is a very complicated and expensive process. All of this puts young queer people in a vulnerable situation, resulting in appalling rates of mental illness affecting them. On top of that, children’s psychiatric wards are overcrowded and one region doesn’t have such ward at all. (It’s Podlasie with a population of 1,8 million people.)
The poster above was made by the illustrator Szarosen. It reads “[Please] love me, mom and dad”. It’s a response to posters with the slogan “Love each other, mom and dad” which appeared across many towns in Poland. The organization responsible for those is known to be anti-divorce and has fundamentalist ties, advocating for married couples staying together despite home abuse. Szarosen’s drawing points to the lack of support, discrimination and even violence which many queer kids have to face, sometimes from their own families.
Anyway, here are links to some fundraising campaigns:
1 initially fundraising for the posters, now for psychological and legal help for lgbt individuals

one of the top 10 funniest terf moments on twitter was katie herzog, whose entire shtick is claiming that the Trans Craze is tricking masculine or gender non-conforming girls into transitioning, thus turning lesbians into an endangered species, (I am only lightly exaggerating her perspective on this) without a hint of irony citing a gallop poll that showed the rate of women identifying as lesbian going up over time as evidence for her claims

seeing cis people have conversations about trans people is so fucked because they’re like “these EVIL transgendereds are FORCING us to have sex with them this is RAPE and it is EVIL” while we’re over here like “1. I do not want to fuck you you’re an asshole what the fuck 2. Can I literally just have human rights please”

just a reminder to kids who are 14,15,16 on this site, you are opening yourself up to a lot of groups who will try to radicalize you and most of the time it won’t be obvious. i’ve been studying radical groups for my poli sci degree for the past three years, and i still have trouble recognizing dog whistles sometimes. there’s a reason why a lot of terfs on this website are 15, and it’s so sad to see such young people filled with hate, so here are some things to look out for:
a person trying to radicalize you will always seem nice, approachable, and non-confrontational (at first). maybe you just followed their blog bc they like the same books as you, but then they start posting subtly terf-y ideology? but they seemed like such a nice person before so maybe it’s not what it seems? or maybe they’ll comment on a post that makes a trans person look out of control and the terf seem calm, collected, and in the right.
know the history of how people come to be radicalized so you can id dog whistles. for terfs, most of it comes from a) a woman is traumatized by a man so b) she develops an intense distrust of all men so c) she anchors her comfort in women are good and men are bad which leads to d) strict enforcement of gender roles in her mind and e) intense hatred for anything that steps out of that comfortable bubble she has created for herself. a lot of older terfs will find a young girl who fits part a and try to push her along to b, c, d, and e. of course, it can be more complicated than that, but it’s good to recognize how this kind of radicalization can apply to you.
if something makes you uncomfortable, walk away. block them, unfollow them, at the slightest thought of ‘this doesn’t seem right’ or ‘i don’t know if this is good’ - cut them out. it doesn’t matter if you’re mutuals or have been messaging and seem like ‘friends’, just take care of yourself first. additionally, don’t be afraid to not know something! if someone asks ‘how do you feel about ________’ or ‘don’t you think _____’, it’s far better to say ‘i’m not sure’ than jump to a conclusion on a topic you don’t understand fully. don’t be afraid to recognize a past opinion or view you had was wrong, don’t go looking to others for brownie points.
the only people i’ve seen who are vocal about being terfs are 15 year olds, and it’s so so disheartening to see and know how teenagers are targeted. you are not immune to radicalization. there are a million people who want to convince young people of their views, so please stay safe and take care of yourself.

I haven’t read the article. I don’t plan to, I don’t want to give them the satisfaction of clicking on it.
I did read the interview that is being quoted here, I found it myself a couple of days ago. If you want to read what Terry Pratchett actually said about characters he openly agreed were transgender and trans narratives he actually wrote, here it is:
