police violence mention 

Some 50 or so scientists went out in labcoats today to join the protests.

A young protestor gathered us to say that seeing us made him realize it was the scientific method that mentally pulled him through every time the police almost killed him.

I hugged him & told him it was good to get the nerds outside every now and then.

He told me about some lab research he would like to do. I told him that sounded like really important work to do.

ukpol action, trans rights 

The sickening stuff reported in the papers yesterday is not happening yet. Here's hoping it's one of those things (like every lockdown measure, eh?) that the government floats in the press to see how we react to it before they decide if they're going to do it.

It's not too late to protect trans rights in the UK like we've seen done in the U.S. today. You can help: write to your MP, even if it seems hopeless. Write to Liz Truss. Suggestions here thekitetrust.org.uk/write-to-y

i work in the nonprofit sector. most nonprofits are bunk. the ones that actually matter are the small, on-the-ground ones, that usually have few to zero full time staff members, led by Black organizers and activists, led by trans people, led by the communities they actually serve.

so many of the orgs in this donation form are orgs like that.

short of directly redistributing to Black, trans people, this is where your money will actually help. Donate.

This would be the perfect time to stop using some form of the word #master as one's title. Banks (in Britain at least) still address boy customers as Master So-and-so, but Mr is just a variation on the same word, and Mrs, Miss and Ms are all derived from the feminine version, Mistress. Even the progressively gender-neutral Mx is only one step further removed.

Until someone offers me the doctorate I so richly deserve, I demand new salutations.

Scotland voted to end the importation of pepper spray and rubber bullets to the US. Thanks, Scottish comrades.

PS: UK parliament would have to approve this, which isn't likely

I just wrote to my MP about this, because the idea that the government discarded the plans they proposed to support trans people because too many trans people responded favourably is................. I don't even know.

“To look at people in capitalist society and conclude that human nature is egoism, is like looking at people in a factory where pollution is destroying their lungs and saying that it is human nature to cough.”
