Exceptionally well-prepared candidate who ran a groundbreaking campaign. He would never win my vote because of profoundly different views on some key issues, but Pete did some impressive things and transcended some appalling ugliness with dignity. https://t.co/cOGred8zsm— Guy Benson (@guypbenson) March 1, 2020
Not even 5 years ago, marriage equality became the law of the land. Tonight, @PeteButtigieg ends his presidential candidacy as the first gay candidate to earn presidential primary delegates for a major party's nomination. And tonight, you have to reflect on what’s still possible.— Chrys Kefalas – Text CREATORS to 52886 (@CKefalas) March 2, 2020

"As many LGBT activists see it, if you’re not a flamboyant queer socialist with a non-white partner, you apparently don’t really count as being gay"https://t.co/kRm9NSCpfI— Quillette (@Quillette) March 4, 2020
.@ArielleScarcell has been attacked mercilessly for speaking out against the radical LGBTQ community.— Sydney Watson (@SydneyLWatson) February 23, 2020
It takes REAL guts to stand against today’s “woke” insanity.
I have nothing but respect for Arielle and other people who walk away from the Left. ?pic.twitter.com/gxaN92Avry
Earlier, I made a similar point about conservatives and LGB critics of trans radicalism, but focused on opposition to the child transition movement.
I have conservative Christians in my feed celebrating a radical feminist lesbian while progressive queer advocates dismiss the notion of even interacting with her because she holds a single view they find heretical.— Chad Felix Greene (@chadfelixg) February 23, 2020
Chadwick Moore writers:
Masculine lesbians, like feminine gays, are disappearing, now being convinced by the trans lobby that they are actually men despite having no clear signs of gender dysphoria whatsoever. …
Old school lesbian and author Cynthia Yockey told me she’s noticed this as well. ‘Dykes of all ages are disappearing into testosterone disguises now that male privilege comes in a bottle. And just when it is safer to be a butch lesbian than at any time in history, teen lesbians are being seduced by social media and coerced by trans activists into believing puberty blockers, mastectomies, and testosterone are their get-out-of-gay-free card’, she said.
‘But the flaming queen boys and butch little girls nearly all grow up to be gay if they have not been socially and medically transitioned. This is the most comprehensive and vicious gay conversion program conducted in history’.
Silicon Valley is eager to help. The crowdfunding site GoFundMe brags that this year alone dozens of users as young as 18 have raised over $100,000 to pay for gender reassignment surgery.
This is brilliant. ‘But the T is slowly devouring not just the Gs but the Ls, beginning in childhood, and bulldykes, like tomboys, appear to be going completely extinct’. https://t.co/arnPvx1yBx

They don’t even bother to hide the fact that hey don’t give a toss about gay rights any more. Homosexuality is still punishable with imprisonment in Pakistan, yet clap clap. https://t.co/I3QZAuuPvq

As lesbians, gays and bisexuals we applaud @BoyGeorge for saying what many people think and few say. At the #lgballiance we don’t “have” pronouns. Telling people “your pronouns” is telling them how they have to see you. https://t.co/8YudKbYa8a

Rebecca Reilly-Cooper writes (Aeon article below):
“And here we have an irony about some people insisting that they and a handful of their fellow gender revolutionaries are non-binary: in doing so, they create a false binary between those who conform to the gender norms associated with their sex, and those who do not. In reality, everybody is non-binary. We all actively participate in some gender norms, passively acquiesce with others, and positively rail against others still. So to call oneself non-binary is in fact to create a new false binary. It also often seems to involve, at least implicitly, placing oneself on the more complex and interesting side of that binary, enabling the non-binary person to claim to be both misunderstood and politically oppressed by the binary cisgender people.”
This piece by @boodleoops had a profound influence on the way I think about "gender" nearly 3 years ago. It's an extremely important essay, and it grows more and more relevant with each passing day. I can't recommend it more highly. https://t.co/udrgGk9YCW
