Marc Lewis is a bigot

So this guy I was following on instagram cause he had some funny videos about mass, and cities in MA, and food places, etc. Unfortunately, this guy has now done 2 bigoted videos that I know about. One was a couple weeks ago, about the migrants sleeping at Logan Airport. He called them illegals(they’re not), and basically lied about them and it was pretty disappointing. Then I see he did a video on the story going around claiming there’s a trans girl on the KIPP Academy girls high school basketball team. The story is from Itemlive and they say “reported” to be a trans girl who is over 6 feet tall and has facial hair and they were injuring other players so the opposing team forfeited and left. No one knows who “reported” it to itemlive. Of course it’s all unconfirmed bullshit, and the KIPP Academy team has already received death threat and had to cancel another match. Oh but these bigots claim to be worried about girls safety and send death threats, make it make sense.

For those who oppose this bullshit, I suggest donating to NAGLY, the Northshore Alliance of GLBTQ Youth. This bigotry and oppression toward trans people, or those thought to be trans, is intolerable and it behooves us all, trans and cis, to fight back when we see it. I’ve not only unfollowed that bigot, I also reported the reel on instagram.

Twitter’s Anti-Trans Problem

Just as with racists, homophobes, and other bigots, Twitter is littered with accounts that voice anti-trans propaganda. I encounter them from time to time, whenever JK Rowling makes another pro-TERF tweet, or if a celebrity posts something in support of trans people. The comments are riddled with “Trans women are men” and it’s variations, as well as the old “it’s a mental illness” bullshit, which I fight against wholeheartedly. And I report their accounts as well as their tweets. And every once in a while, twitter will lock trans accounts(and trans ally accounts) for standing up to these bigots, in essence twitter defends anti-trans bigotry. That is Twitter’s anti-trans problem. And they’re probably not going to try to fix it.
