Executive Order on Preventing and Combating Discrimination on the Basis of Gender Identity or Sexual Orientation

whitehouse.gov/briefing-room/p

...

Discrimination on the basis of gender identity or sexual orientation manifests differently for different individuals, and it often overlaps with other forms of prohibited discrimination, including discrimination on the basis of race or disability.  For example, transgender Black Americans face unconscionably high levels of workplace discrimination, homelessness, and violence, including fatal violence.

It is the policy of my Administration to prevent and combat discrimination on the basis of gender identity or sexual orientation, and to fully enforce Title VII and other laws that prohibit discrimination on the basis of gender identity or sexual orientation.  It is also the policy of my Administration to address overlapping forms of discrimination.

When first my brave Johnie lad came to this town,
He had a blue bonnet that wanted the crown,
But now he has gotten a hat and a feather -
Hey, brave Johnie lad, cock up your beaver!

Cock up your beaver, and cock it fu' sprush!
We'll over the border and gie them a brush:
There's somebody there we'll teach better behavior -
Hey, brave Johnie lad, cock up your beaver!

@siege googie architecture was a big feature near me, in the Wildwood area of the Jersey shore! Most of it is still there and I love it

what im saying is, why dont more restaurants have giant statues holding food sticking out of their roofs anymore

Show thread

Googie was an architectural design style that arose from the need to attract people off the highway to stop at the restaurant / store etc

I think its time for a Googie resurgence with the need to attract people off the digital highway to come and take selfies in their restaurant / store

trans fear and anger. 

So elsewhere over the last week or two there's been this steady series of panicked doom posts each morning in a uk trans online space and they were spiralling off one another, so i thought yesterday morning instead i'd make a long post talking about the issues that trans groups can commonly face with intercommunity fear spreading, and constant vigilant battle incitement due to trauma responses (which get louder during winter times as we get sadder).

I spoke a little on how we need strive to be mindful of our own impulses to feed those flames (i am definitely not free of sin on this), and consider the temperature of groups we're spreading them in because many of these places are filled with new baby trans who are trying to find their feet and don't have the necessary tools and experience to discern that these waves of kvetching are often more to do people expressing energy and pain rather than sharing useful information or advice that can be added to their toolkit or warning of a very tangible situation that is actionable. I then gave some points for hope for the future and what someone can do that is actively positive rather than being stuck in doom mode.

so while there was a very huge positive response, of course the thread has now turned into trans people arguing with each other about who hates them most, the history of terfism and why actually things are awful and optimism is nonsense etc etc

"This is a really positive post, and I don't wanna ruin anyone's mood if they don't want it to be ruined so be aware that this comment isn't gonna be uplifting

The fundamental issue imo in the UK is that in the US most transphobia comes from... "
