Now please give me your motte and bailey response that is somehow more nuanced than "I hate trans people and pro-Palestine protesters", which is the thing you just said but are too much of a bitch to admit to saying.
It's just insane to me that the article felt the need to point out that the person was trans, as if that was at all relevant. And to put it front and center in the title of the article too.

But it's a publication from TERF Island so I don't know why I expected better.

I believe it's important to highlight the intersection of different axes of oppression. We're not free until everyone is free, ever heard of queer liberation? There's a lot of pinkwashing going on, and people are trying to tell queer people that they can't be part of what's happening in Palestine. And I just want to be here for pro-Palestinian transfolk cause what's happening is disgusting.

And I believe English should be made the official language of Quebec and your doggerel version of French should be banned.

World’s smallest violin over a European bureaucrat feeding on and perpetuating an antisemitic Lost Cause having his money pipe cut off.

Alberta curbs child transition

Quote:
Alberta will prohibit hormonal treatment, puberty blockers and gender affirming surgery for children 15 years and younger, Premier Danielle Smith announced Wednesday in a video posted to social media.

Top and bottom gender reassignment surgeries will be banned for minors aged 17, though bottom surgery is already limited to adults.

Teens aged 16 and 17 can start hormone therapy as long as they have permission from their parents, a physician and a psychologist.

In the almost two years since Russia's full-scale invasion, Ukraine has recaptured 54 percent of occupied territory, while Russia still occupies 18 percent of the country. Ukraine's 2023 offensive has achieved minor territorial gains, but the frontlines have remained stable for almost a year.

The situation in Ukraine is tough. These people need help and support. I've recently looked through the projects created to help the Ukrainian military forces and paramedics and discovered CarToDonate. I was surprised by how these people stay strong and do their best to help each other. It seems that common suffering really unites more than common joys.
I couldn't believe that such a barbarian invasion happened in the 21st century.

President Biden leaning into the memes about him is kind of cool, in my opinion.
