At one point the video very briefly displays some books about racism by Black people. Those books apparently are: - Stamped From The Beginning: The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America by Ibram X. Kendi - Sister Outsider by Audre Lorde - A book by James Baldwin (I can't see the title) - The...

I'm honestly not a big fan of the LGBTQ community despite being gay myself. I've tried to get involved with it through facebook and felt that I was either being bodyshamed for how I look or being surrounded by guys who just wanted to have sex with me. It made me uncomfortable. Facebook is probably ...

One of several sources I found right away: What Are the 72 Other Genders? from MedicneNet. Many of those words I've never seen before. Some of them are words I have seen before, but not as "genders" per se . Some of those words pertain to how a person experiences gender. For example, &quo...

I didn't make any of that up. All I did was google "how many genders are there?" Along with "how many preferred gender pronouns are there?", or "list of preferred gender pronouns". Just because someone says something on the Internet (and you found it via Google) doesn'...

To be clear, and I know this sounds like a big contradiction on my part. I really don't actually want a war, but at this point I feel like my country has sunk so low I don't see how we can possibly dig our way out of this mess. It's going to be a lose/lose situation no matter what happens. :| One t...

Brooklyn College Schedules Obligatory ‘Implicit Bias Coaching’ on Yom Kippur VERY surprising that they would schedule anything for Yom Kippur. The CUNY calendar, including this semester's CUNY calendar , has always avoided scheduling classes on Yom Kippur. So everyone at CUNY should know when Yom K...

JK Rowling occasionally retweets stuff from the " LGB Alliance ," a group that is decidedly anti-trans, although it has recently toned down that aspect of its website. According to the news story ‘Lie of gender identity’ spurred founding of LGB Alliance, court told , Guardian , Wed 14 Sep ...

On Sep 26, 2022, JK Rowling posted a very hostile tweet about Mermaids , a U.K.-based charity that offers support (but not medical treatment) to "transgender, nonbinary and gender-diverse children, young people, and their families." Mermaids has been a target of ongoing opposition from bot...

Do you ever wonder how things might have turned out had there been a community urging you towards medical intervention, even coaching you on what to tell the doctors to get hormones and blockers, and a medical establishment willing to operate on you as young as 13? I sometimes wonder about this too...

My impressions so far: In this essay , JK Rowling went out of her way to sound civil and to sound like she cares about everyone's well-being including trans people's. However, according to various critiques I've linked to above, she said a number of things that are both incorrect and very harmful (n...

Rowling on the website of the GLAAD accountability project. (See also this article on the GLAAD site.) 3) ...

Re this issue: There seem to be genuine and understandable concerns. However there also seem to be those who'd be happy for transwomen and transmen to be wiped off the face of the earth. It's hard to tell from the propaganda, anti and pro JK Rowling, whether she stops at genuine and understandable ...

Here is a recent (Sep 29, 2022) tweet by JK Rowling in which she screenshots a tweet by some un-named person who wrote: it's baffling that people still hide behind "can you name one thing she said that was transphobic" like sorry I don't keep a tally, I don't take notes, I just saw them, k...
