What are your opinions on Neopronouns, Xenogenders, Neogenders, Xenopronouns?

>CeCe McDonald was the only person arrested by the police that night. McDonald has been punished ever since as the “aggressor” for defending her life and the lives of her friends — and surviving. Police, sheriffs, jailers, prosecutor, judge and prison administration have arrested her, locked her up and held her in solitary confinement for long periods.




That is why I keep saying there is nothing organic happening any more. Everything that gets even mildly popular has money and labour thrown behind it. The "LGB Alliance" has a mere 4000 followers on Twitter -- probably most of them bots, and duplicated on all their accounts (including a very weird LGB Alliance India lol). This is not an indicator of actual success, this is an indicator of organisations pumping money to change public opinion and control the narrative. To make the story short, Greg Powell co-founder of the "LGB Alliance" (yes, you read that right) works for two US-based NGOs that peddle right-wing rhethoric in the world. These organisations are in turn funded by a much bigger one which launders money through shell companies, whose purpose is to connect right-wing groups together and peddle right wing rhethoric specifically in Europe. The article explains it better. Very dire implications if you think about it. I can't wait for the fall of capitalism when these monopolists get the wall.

> In the pantheon of figures in the history of LGBTQ struggles, few stand higher than Marsha P. Johnson and Sylvia Rivera. Venerated for their leading roles in the 1969 Stonewall Uprising in New York City, these two working-class trans women of color were lifelong activists and revolutionaries. They believed that the only way to escape the harsh homophobic and transphobic oppression and class oppression created by capitalist society was to destroy it and replace it with socialism.

Why I prefer the term "Queer" to LGBT
(Crosspost from c/queer) No one has posted in this community yet? I suppose I'll have the honor of being the first, *naturally.* Queer. It is still a somewhat controversial term, being as many have felt the sting of it as a slur. Nonetheless many including myself have chosen to expropriate this world as an identity and umbrella term. Anyone who isn't heterosexual, allosexual (as opposed to asexual) and cisgender is queer. I often just use the label queer as it doesn't box me in and I don't have to explain that I am a pansexual, graysexual, graygender person or explain what those mean to people. Yet, LGBT and its variations are still far more popular. Perhaps CisHet people are afraid of offending, but if you are a member of the Queer Community you will no there is next to no controversy surrounding the term. It certainly isn't like New Afrikan people using the N word, you do not need to be part of the community to say "queer". I certainly won't get mad at you anyway. "Fa**ot" and "Dyke" are being reclaimed, but don't toss those words around unless you are one. I think it is empowering to take what was a pejorative and own it, taking a word used to be used to hurt people and disarming it. Besides, my generation hardly ever knew queer as an insult, but we sure heard gay be used a synonym for bad constantly, so if we are gonna avoid words because of their former derogative usage that's bad news for all my gay friends. I know it is not the intention, but I see LGBT as a somewhat exclusionary term, and adding more letters can only help so much. LGBTTQQIAAP (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, transsexual, queer, questioning, intersex, asexual, ally, pansexual) Is the longest version I've seen, certainly not in an organic context, that mouthful will never see popular use. Some add a plus sign as a quick fix to represent any identities not covered by the acronym, but I still think queer is less exclusionary. Someone won't feel like *why aren't I good enough to have a letter in the acronym, I don't want a crumby plus sign*. Plus queer just rolls off the tongue better. Obviously I can't strongarm the world into adopting Queer over LGBT, but I think they should. Especially us radicals, since it has had even stronger usage in queer radical communities. Any thoughts, comrades?

I was going through my old comments and found this post had been removed for being "tankie". So I figured, upon a recommendation to post it here, that y'all here might enjoy this lovely trans phone background! the orginial Reddit post: https://www.reddit.com/r/traaaaaaannnnnnnnnns/comments/dyv1am/a_nice_phone_background/
