“Take Back Alberta from Bigots!” sign at pro trans rally in Edmonton on the weekend, Day #2.
David Parker should eat his heart out. We didn’t have to buy people tickets to get them to show.
@DavidJPba is a goof. Danielle Smith is worse.
Many more rallies are planned
Poster: Alberta School Walkout in response to the anti trans legislation Danielle Smith put forward, we will be doing a student walkout.
Trans people deserve to feel safe in school, it’s time to show our support.
February 7th at 10AM
Wear your pronouns, wear trans colours, bring a friend

“Gender-affirming medical care for #youth should be a decision between the patient, their parents, and their medical care team, without intrusion by government.“

Jonathan Teghtmeyer @atypicalalbertn:
It’s never been about patent rights. It’s bigotry.
Thomas A. Lukaszuk@LukaszukAB:
Do you realize that Danielle Smith played a trick on you and actually removed parental rights?
See, until her announcement, for children younger than 18, parental consent was required to undergo medical treatment. Now, parents can’t consent. Government does.
David Keegan he/him @drDavidKeegan:
Any government that tries to stop the ability of kids and teens to access proven healthcare is saying
- as politicians they know more about patient care than health professionals
- they DGAF about health and only care about controlling people
- they don’t care about science
- they know these kids and teens will suffer
- they *want* these kids and teens to suffer
- they think these kids and teens deserve to suffer
Any government that announces these plans with soft music and exhortations of support and care for trans kids and teens are saying
- they know exactly what they’re doing to hurt these kids and teens
- they’re cloaking their evil plans to give cover to hate
- saying they don’t believe in kids & teens finding safe spaces when they feel their homes aren’t safe
- revealing they are all about control and fear and don’t care about liberty
So weird. My carefully ordered tweet thread got posted all shuffled up. No idea why.
The bottom line / TLDR is:
Government who cloak the creation of barriers for gender health in proclaimed compassion are all about control, hate and punishment. They cannot be trusted.
Meme: First, they came for the transgender community, and I spoke out immediately even though I’m straight and cis because I’ve read the rest of the fucking poem.
Who’s really running Alberta’s hate and bigotry show?

New romance? Putin and the Fucker Tucker Carlson. Poor Trump.

Ugla Stefanía Kristjönudóttir Jónsdóttir: “The legislation had cross party support in parliament, despite attempts from known anti-trans hate groups under English influence to oppose it, and wrongfully claiming they managed to ‘kill the bill’ … Their arguments were dismissed as anti-scientific and anti-trans rhetoric.”
