fuck, man

the contrapoints shit just makes me so sad, I wouldn’t be the person I am today without her influence, her work pushed me to the left and put a lot of the building blocks in place that led to me realising that I was trans.

Awareness campaigns and all that feel good shit is useless, we need real healthcare, housing, care givers, safety nets. We have created amazing support communities, but the individual cost is too high. It is the state that must do this.

Don't tell people to reach out and talk. I have friends who did that and are dead now.

Don't say that meds fix everything (although fuck, they do help). I have dead friends who took their meds.

Without strong structural supports, it's meaningless.

Starting 4/Nov, PrEP will be free in Ireland if you meet the eligibility criteria. Not that many people know this exists: if you're on it, it is almost impossible to get HIV!

It's better to prevent instead of living in fear of the next STI check!

Fuck this. This is what the media should be reporting on, instead of just parroting the shite than O'Shea spews. @irishexaminer@twitter.com @Independent_ie@twitter.com

Fuck this! Going off private. I've sought legal advice. I did not defame the gender clinic. I'm not removing my tweets describing being asked how I feel about recieving oral sex by your psychologist. Stop threatening my care & blocking surgery referral.

we live in an age of surveillance, tracking, targeted ads and the whole dystopia

and sites STILL show me temperature in Fahrenheit!

come on people, use all this data for something useful for once! I know you know who I am!

@NiamhHoran@twitter.com Or, you know, asking a real trans person suffering this shit. But of course they don't care, this is about bodily autonomy and the gatekeepers know better! Like they did with abortion, but we won that battle already.

This one will be won too.

Maybe the journo, @NiamhHoran@twitter.com should have done her job and ask why the rest of the world is moving towards the scary Informed Consent model this guy likes to compare to asking to get your lung removed. Why is it what most providers in the US do, and recommended by research orgs.

This person seems to enjoy making trans people suffer, following home-made backwards protocols that only seem to serve his narrow world-view, and he is scared of the growing activism to raise trans healthcare in Ireland in line with international standards. Call this shit up!

Of course, this should have been a quote retweet, but I fucked it up :)

THIS. You know why you don't hear more of this stuff? Because these a-holes will threaten to stop your health care if you dare to call them out on their hit

RT @dirtycitybird@twitter.com

Donal O'Shea is a melt and since I don't actually get trans healthcare in Ireland (because fuck him and his gate keeping crap), I can say it, publicly without putting my ability to risk my access to healthcare.

Sadly, I can't read the whole article, as it is paywalled; but I'd bet money there is no comparison between the awful health care offered in Ireland with international standards like WPATH and the Informed Consent model that is now commonplace in the US.

This person seems to enjoy making trans people suffer, following home-made backwards protocols that only seem to serve his narrow world-view, and he is scared of the growing activism to raise trans healthcare in Ireland in line with international standards.

The might be insignificant in Ireland, but they are well organised and a very real threat. We need to stop them!

This is not a joke. It is an actual ad in two Facebook groups. This is Dublin today, 350$ for a room that's failing apart, no kitchen, and who knows how many people per toilet. A tenement. A fucking disgrace.

I also admired RMS back in the day, but we all know he has been a liability for a long time. We cannot keep defending assholes because they are geniuses or do good work. We must do better.
