It is, as if, the Spanish Inquisition were resurrected and updated to torture the trans community into "repentance," rather than people of the 21st Century understanding that no amount of acceptance of trans individuals diminishes individual faith to any degree. We fail spectacularly at learning.

We need to talk about the systematic silencing of transgender people in America’s elite public sphere.

Even the recent letters to the editor The NY Times did publish criticizing Pamela Paul weren’t by actual trans people

“Along with the direct political attacks on trans people taking place in many parts of America, more insidious, diffuse operations of power are also at work to silence the scapegoats.”

Pay attention to framing and how terms like “activist” are used to delegitimize trans voices in the legacy media

Right now, as transgender Americans are having our rights stripped in state after state, we are also being systematically silenced in the elite public sphere—and even on social media.

They want to control knowledge. Schools and libraries offer unfettered access to all kinds of knowledge and these sanctimonious 12th Century throwbacks want to determine what that information is and ensure no one can see it, lest people realize it's all a SCAM and they shouldn't be trusted.

“This is part of a larger campaign that we call the ‘ed scare,’ which is a broad effort to heighten intimidation and anxiety around what can and cannot be taught and discussed in public spaces,” said Kasey Meehan, the director of the Freedom to Read project at PEN America."

Will recently humiliated former presidential candidate Meatball Ron DeSantis weaponize Florida's election police against transgender Floridians?

This is a real question that we have to ask, and the answer is likely to be "Yes"

Ron DeSantis already has an election police force that he has used to terrorize African American voters.

Mark my words, trans voters will be next

“The major reforms that would make the US more fair and democratic, relegating the authoritarian bigots to the political margins, will not be easy to achieve. There is no clear path within the current system, which is stuck in a vicious cycle that keeps tensions and resentments high”

If there’s one thing the manufactured border crisis lays bare, it’s the neo-Confederate nature of the Republican Party.

My chosen sister is part of a small, close-knit work team. Last week, one colleague, Megan Gillum, suddenly and unexpectedly died at age 29.

Her friends and coworkers have set up this GoFundMe for her wife and family.

Please share and donate if able

In this week’s Bugbear Dispatch, things get existential.

What does it mean for anyone to live a good life and leave a legacy in an era of crumbling civil society?

What does it mean for me as an independent scholar and writer?
