Ohio bill would require teachers to report children who may be transgender to parents

Under the proposed law, it would also be a fourth-degree felony for aschool or any "government entity" to provide gender dysphoria treatment without consent from each parent or guardian. Treatment includes "educational materials, classes, or programs, and medical, psychological, social, or other professional treatment, therapy, counseling, or other services."

TERFs lead London Pride. Police and organizers do nothing.

Fucking shit-gargling Christ, could humanity's oppressed groups please stop their eternal hunt for smaller, more oppressed groups to spit on?

A classic example of why we keep saying "no cops at pride".

The queer community is generally pretty good at dealing with toxic, hateful attacks like that. But cops will stop us.

Odds of the backlash mentioned centering on her MCU blockbuster that just landed a director, and not this biopic ... no bet.

A+ "grateful that the conversation regarding inclusivity in Hollywood continues" non-apology, continued misgendering of Gill, and flat-out deadnaming in the article of course, but you knew all that was coming.

So CDPR/Good Old Games just tweeted a dogwistle in support of Trump's plans, and apparently this is fully in character for their PR guy.

... Dammit. Well, so much for Cyberpunk '77.

The entire framing of the game's narrative has been ridiculously transphobic from the getgo, and GOG tweeted some gamergate shit last year. Cyberpunk '77's been dead since the announcement.

Republican lawmaker admits writing ‘death to gays’ manifesto.

See, now this is definitely a situation where even I'd say that if something "unfortunately" lethal were to happen to this guy, that would be a clear-cut case of self-defence.

Some dicknose tried to raise a ruckus against the British trans rights group "Mermaids UK" to prevent them receiving grant funds.

Hbomberguy responded by marathoning DK64 as a fundraiser.

Right now it's at over $175K out of its $69420 goal and still going.

The original goal was $500 with a "maybe if this goes really amazingly well I might get to $10,000", actually.

Gonna be a massive headache to figure out the taxes and deal with Paypal's reaction to him suddenly having $340,000 in his Paypal account, but he's apparently at least in contact with people who can help with the Paypal side of things.

I just hope he's continually thanking the dicknose on stream for his contribution towards advancing trans support.

At this point I think he's going to sleep for a day or two straight, since he was streaming for 50-some hours with only a couple breaks to sleep.

But #ThanksGraham was trending in both the US and UK at one point during the stream with people thanking him for the tens of thousands of dollars of free advertising he's provided.

Minor aside, but personally upsetting to me - why did 80s gamers' consumer rights advocate 'Rev' Stu Campbell have to weigh in for Team Erasure? (https://www.twitter.com/revstu/status/1 ... 4892401664) Seems like everyone that pens one article criticising this dumb industry inevitably falls down the enlightened centrism poop chute. D:

(Dude is left wing for a Scottish guy on most issues, but apparently the idea that nature is imperfect and might occasionally misclick on the gender settings is his sacred line in the sand. How do people that grew up immersed in SF universes with AIs and gender morphing alien protagonists end up so fucking parochial?)
