If you're cis and/or white, please take a look and help us out. Twitter is bad at enforcing their policies, and we should do all we can to report this person's directly targeted harassment in their tweets of trans women and Jews.

RT @carlymho@twitter.com

cw: targeted harrassment, antisemitism, racism, transphobia, probably a laundry list—
if you have a sec, please report + block user TheEuropeanMan1; he's a white nationalist transphobe and harassing some of my friends. i'd also recommend blockchaining his entire followers list.

Hey cis people, you're supposed to celebrate the by giving money and snacks to your trans friends and rad trans creators. If you don't have any trans friends or know any creators who are trans, you've got a year until the next to figure that out.

Happy to all my trans siblings, especially fellow nonbinary folks. Sometimes it's really hard to have to be "visibly" trans if you want to be seen as the correct gender. It's also really fun sometimes, too.

"Trans people deserve rights and respect whether you 'get us' or not."

Daily PSA: don't use the word "femmes" to mean women, or "women and nonbinary people", or "people who aren't men." That word means none of those things.

Having to decide between outting myself as one of "those people" or staying quiet and safer always sucks, especially when I'm the accessibility person in the room. I'm always worried that if people know I care about this because of my own experiences, they'll write it off.

RT @codeability@twitter.com

Being the only disabled person in a meeting and hearing someone disparage accessibility is... really hard. After enough times, you can read between the lines. So many dog whistles about how "few people" need these accommodations. About "it's too much work." I'm just sad.

The slide deck for an external presentation I'm doing with five awesome coworkers today has everyone's pronouns on the introduction slide. I feel so safe and affirmed and happy, I could cry.

Employers: inclusion of your trans employees can be so simple, but it means so much.

P.S. If you want a downloadable version of that pronoun button guide that you could also give me money for, you can get it on itch:

I promise, it's actually really easy to put a smidge of help text on the form that says what you're using names for. It means so so much to those of us for whom "name" isn't actually an easy form field.

Also: on registration it wasn't clear if names needed to be legal names or what. At some conferences, you need to show an ID to get your badge. My name doesn't match my ID. So I just put "Fen" on registration and hoped they didn't check IDs. (They didn't.)

Also I keep getting closer to launching some "pronoun buttons as a service" thing.

Options:
- premade sets of buttons for cheap or more for custom-designed ones
- training session for event organizers about how to use them
- custom signage for button table

If only someone had written a simple guide for organizers on how to provide pronoun buttons at events. Oh wait, I did that haha. Check it out.

So all in all, I don't end up raising my hand to ask a question of speakers. I don't end up going to in-person networking events, and if I do, I don't make many connections. And like... one of the major purposes of is networking! But not for trans folks, I guess.

I'm also barely doing any in-person networking at this conference, because people are generally awful at using correct pronouns. Like, not maliciously bad, just average amount of bad (aka awful). So I get gendered incorrectly constantly and don't even try to correct people.

It might not seem like much to the cis, but when I'm dealing with so many other microaggressions around gender, I'm not going to ask a question of a speaker and open myself up to yet another one. It's so so easy to just... not say those things.
