Letter of Support for AAA’s Withdrawal of Session from the Annual Meeting

"Implicit in the session abstract and several of the individual abstracts is the assumption that sex is a biological binary; a concept that is rejected by current biological anthropology and human biology, and highly disputed across contemporary biology.


People who are non-binary, trans, or queer, and/or those who occupy sex categories other than “male” or “female,” have existed across all human societies and throughout all of human evolution. What is typical about human sex and gender categories, is that they are not simple, not binary, are always affected by the cultural beliefs of the time, and that they shift. To continue to work under such refuted assumptions is to work in the half-light, to miss most of the picture, and to not be engaging in rigorous, empirically grounded, and timely scientific anthropology."

@MaddieT @GenderGP Same. The only thing I've been 'rushed on' was to conform to what's expected from a straight girl: be pretty, take care of others, get a boyfriend, have children and of course 'Smile!'
These people certainly have no concern when it comes to girls being rushed into motherhood.

No Place For Transphobia in Anthropology: Session pulled from Annual Meeting program

"The session was rejected because it relied on assumptions that run contrary to the settled science in our discipline, framed in ways that do harm to vulnerable members of our community. It commits one of the cardinal sins of scholarship—it assumes the truth of the proposition that it sets out to prove, namely, that sex and gender are simplistically binary, and that this is a fact with meaningful implications for the discipline.

Such efforts contradict scientific evidence, including the wealth of anthropological scholarship on gender and sex."

"The notwithstanding clause is a provision that allows governments to override certain Charter rights for up to five years when passing legislation.

The clause can only override certain sections of the charter which deal with fundamental freedoms, legal rights and equality rights — but can't be used to override democratic rights. Once invoked, the notwithstanding clause prevents any judicial review of the legislation in question."

Far right politicians using queer kids as pawns in their culture war... 🤬

Hate tries to hide behind innocent sounding words - like "parental rights" - even when there's no such thing, to disguise their objective of elimination.
If a child isn't coming out to their parents, there's a reason. Moe has made their lives more dangerous.

Had the privilege of discussing with @noahriseman the importance of history as an educator and how despite a prescriptive curriculum we can should still be able to draw on his new book Transgender Australia, as a reference to deepen the narrative of key historical events by offering students a broader understanding of different experiences.

I'm really looking forward to my copy arriving tomorrow so I can have a deep dive
Based on the conversations at the launch, I am keen to learn more about our history, the progress, the ongoing challenges, and our experience in Australia connects globally.

Back to the reporting. Oral argument will start in three hours.

The 2019 case's opinion (in Japanese) can be read at:

The opinion notes that trans people might, against their will, get the surgery so that they can change the gender marker, calling this practice invasive; however, the court upheld the constitutionality at least for the present case, because the constitutionality must be measured in light of the social recognition of handling trans people according to their gender identities.

Japanese courts don't like striking down laws, and judicial review is exercised only in extreme cases where the law is patently unconstitutional. Only a dozen laws were struck by the #SupremeCourt in the 70+ years of its existence.

I wasn't able to attend the counter protest in Fredericton on the 20th, but it is warming to see that so many supported trans communities and the anti-trans protest was utterly pathetic.

But even if it's not big in Canada, it still gets me curious why particular people show hate to the trans community. So I did some research.

And found something awfully familiar.

(I believe non-citizens are allowed to visit so long as you have proper IDs.)

Back to the case. The question is whether the "surgery requirement" before gender marker change is unconstitutional. The court, sitting in 5-member "petty bench", has already answered that it is constitutional, back in 2019. However, two justices of that panel questioned its constitutionality in the future, noting that this issue needs to be revisited. Four years later, they are hearing this case en banc, that is, before all the 15 justices.

En banc hearing is rare, and is only convened when the court is asked to overturn a precedent or to rule on a law's constitutionality. Only a couple en banc hearings are done every year, most of which being election malapportionment lawsuits. #SupremeCourt #Japan #TransRights #JapanLaw

Tomorrow's a big day on #TransRights in #Japan. And if you're in #Tokyo that day, you can witness it yourself.

At 2pm, Sept. 27th (UTC+9), the #SupremeCourt of Japan sitting en banc will hear the gender marker case. **Courtroom visitors must arrive at the South Gate before 13:10** in case you 1) are able to go visit the Court and 2) have good Japanese skill (no translators obviously).

I recently learned that a public figure I used to find inspirational is a #transphobe. It showed me that even when someone might share many of my positions, they could still hate me. I found that difficult to reconcile.

Then today I continued to read Brené Brown's "Braving the Wilderness", a book about belonging. So many things resonated with me but I couldn't shake the fear that this person too might hate me. So I looked it up. I googled to figure out Brené's stance on trans rights.

She's an ally. I ... I really needed that. It made me tear up. In a world where being true to myself doesn't feel safe, it means the world to feel people like Brené standing at my side. Thank you, Brené.

Tonight we watched based-on-a-true-story film, Misbehaviour about the start of the Women's Liberation Front in UK and its protest at the 1970 Miss Universe competition. In an interview Sally says they're not anti women but they want to stop women being judged against each other on the basis of their looks and the shape of their bodies.

Feminists should apply this to #TransRights too! Don't judge on body shape or looks! And yet TERFisland is getting worse 😢

I was so grateful and inspired by the younger protesters today at the counter protest to the "One Million March for Children" in Montreal.

I needed to leave after 4 hours because I needed to come home to eat and take meds and I'm exhausted.

Unfortunately, the anti-trans side vastly outnumbered us. They also had people hiding in our group and trying to start fights and others trying to start fights too, but we always de-escalated peacefully as a group.

They were even able to freely walk around the outskirts of our side and film, but the same wasn't true for us.

These people have hate in their hearts and don't care about protecting anyone.

I hope more cis and straight allies show up in the future because we need your support to stand against hate!

I worked the frontline with homeless street youth for more than 5 years. By far the largest demographic were LGBTQ kids who had been forced out of their homes onto the streets by angry, intolerant abusive parents. Many identified as Trans. Too many died young before they found out someone loved them and cared about them.

"The human rights of LGBTQ2SAI+ people are not up for debate.

Anti-trans protests happened on Sept 20 in almost every major city in Canada. It’s fucking terrifying, to be honest.

Hate doesn’t stop by itself. It has to BE stopped.

You can help in small and big ways: change your user photo to this, explain why to your family and friends, and go support the side of diversity & equality on Sept 20.

Look around your corner of the country and you’ll find the counter-protest. Stand with them.
