BBC, transmisia, negative
So, a couple weeks back, the BBC's LBGT+ support page quietly dropped three trans-specific helplines:
At the time, the reason was unknown even to the corporation's internal Pride Network.
Now, we hear the reason has been officially given - confirmation that they were 'dropped due to “audience complaints” relating to the “increasingly contested issues relating to trans issues and children”'.
Fuck that with a rusty chainsaw. Removal of those support lines gives clear support to those who *don't need those helplines*, and unambiguously aligned management against trans people. It's not coincidental that with the ramping up of TERFs in the press has come a sharp rise in harassment and violent attacks against trans people; either the BBC supports that, or they oppose it.

pol, the us president back on his bullshit
the concept of the american dream is inherently racist and classist. it's all about escaping the problems caused by capitalism (poverty, crime, etc.) and of course the spectre of "crime" that all these middle-class families are trying to escape is so racially coded you could write a book about it (and i'm sure several people have). the promise of upward mobility is only for white folks.this applies doubly to gated communities, which are just shitty fortresses for paranoid racists.
and our dear leader is promising to remove the troubling shadow of scaaaaaaaaaaaary low-income housing from these white-flight suburbs. it's two steps from declaring it straight-up illegal to be poor.

they/them is great when speaking about:
* an abstract person
* a person with they/them pronouns
* a person whose pronouns you have no way of knowing
it's bad when speaking about:
* someone who's told you other pronouns
* someone whose pronouns you could ask or look up
