No, white folx #BlackLivesMatter is not hurting themselves by using #DirectAction to make a very important, life and death point, and your smug reactions are quite telling of the privileges and power you wield so comfortably.

AMAB, genderfluid / genderqueer, age 42.

Tell me Dan,

Why would I reject my socialised white / cis / gay / male / privilege(s), and come out of this new sort of closet, only to be misgendered at best, and at worst, maligned, misunderstood, or even mocked by friends, acquaintances, and of course, cis society, for the sake of anything, other than, my own path and life experiences of finding my personal truth from this sort of self discovery?

To follow anyone other than my own heart and intuition, is simply not in my nature.

I applaud those among the younger generation for providing much needed visibility to non binary and lesser known trans identities. There is a huge difference between increased visibility and discussion and a 'trend' Policing how others self identify is BAD.

To say otherwise makes you sound like a right wing conservative writing on an unfamiliar subject, such as say, homosexuality in 1978.

This newfound visibility reminds me much of coming of age in the 80's/90's and the LOUD struggle and gradual changes in mainstream culture of Gay Men's acceptance (and AIDS activism)

We're here, we're genderqueer, GET USED TO IT.

PS
I don't have 'preferred' pronouns, I have 'required' pronouns, if you would like any acknowledgement or response from me.

Looks to me like your ignorance has trumped any real experience or education on these matters (again) I suggest doing some more research. https://www.genderspectrum.org/

Cynics: when entire communities i.e (Trans people, Radical Faeries and Drag Queens) are quite literally banished from the monopoly of FB, for simply identifying who they ARE, as they desire, there is a bit more of an urgent / refugee impetus to find an alternate online community hub, and then, along came ello. #trendalert! albeit in beta, lacking diversity - as of yet, and as in anything, imperfect, but for now, seems to work as intended for these, and other recently displaced groups - what happens whtn the floodgates of heteros arrive, who knows, for now it feels like twitter, tribe.net and tmblr had a mutant offspring after a burningman hookup, which is not really such a bad thing.

Can we trade that stinky old Superbowl trophy and maybe a Grammy or two for that crown?

Lived across the street from Linda's a bit before it opened, and it was an instant classic. Her store Basic was already a favorite and Broadway was a truly 'amazing' place to be a young creative type back then ....

The targets are Microsoft and Amazon, not mass transit, it is clear that the class war is beginning.

YES! ACTION IS NEEDED?! ?<<<0_0 >>> Russia (Or more accurately, Putin+Pals) being awful to the gays right now but this vodka boycott idea is quite ill conceived, Please stop riding Dan's coattails and rethink a more effective strategy / target. This is really, really not well thought through.

Stupid idea is Stupid, even the GLBTQs in mother Russia herself think so.
