I'm not the least surprised by this.  This is what conspiracy theorists do.  They're also spreading rumors that the shooter was an undocumented alien, which even the Texas governor said is false. 

 

An issue that came to me after I first posted this is that these rumors add even more to our shared anxiety over violence.  There will certainly be at least a few deranged folks who hear these rumors, believe them, and may seek us out for collective "punishment" for the school shooting.  It is not a wild fantasy I'm spinning; the danger is real.  Watch your "six," folks.

The Boarding House had one hell of an explosion to get all those 👿 roomers 👿 flying.  Some of it is satire on the Texas leadership I have heard from elsewhere.  It is indeed gruesome satire if it is, but with time spent on the subject of Trans to get their voter bases eager to support them, ----------

I heard about this while at a trans support group yesterday.  There was even a congressman posting about it.  Totally false.

It's freaking insane what they'll do to attack us.  

The worst thing is that people are ready to believe it.

 

Sometimes I get so depressed.  

 

The only consolation is if I get killed, I'll go as a woman. 

(although they'll probably deadname me)

The congressman posting about it is Paul Gosar, a bit of a right wing loon. I used to be in his district here in Arizona, and found him to be, shall we say, unpalatable. He is not mainstream by any means, and it doesn't surprise me that he is involved in spreading this hate and paranoia. Gosar is a vile man, imho.

 

And, sadly, hate is often an expression of fear. In this case these folks fear what they don't understand or are willing to accept. Pity the puny minded knuckleheads, and as Carolyn said, watch your "six."

Rep. Paul Gosar, an Arizona Republican, said of the shooter in a since-deleted tweet, “It’s a transsexual leftist illegal alien ..."

Well he pretty much covered ALL the hot-button labels he could in one sentence.  Maybe Rep Gosar is a transwoman - She just doesn't know it yet 🙃

      IDK, Sakura.  I never liked it when I was on interview boards if an applicant gave too much personal info.  You'd be amazed at the stuff people would admit ("cop") to without needing to do so.   I think a good approach is to provide whatever info you do have, verbally if you have to, and tell them you're trying to get documentation, but that there are personal reasons it may be difficult.  Give them whatever you can give them, like the names of at least a couple of prior employers.  If your memory is such that you can't do that, I'm not sure how many employers are going to accept that an applicant simply can't recall their work history, without medical proof.  Again, U.S. laws prohibit them from asking about your medical history.   I am not expert enough on these issues that offer better advice than that.  You need to consult with employment experts, who may have better solutions.   Carolyn Marie

      There is some really helpful information to unpackage there. I think I'm going to try building my cv again from scratch and see how much information I have, then look into what resources are available in my area (if any).   Thank you both so much.   May I follow up with a few more questions, if you don't mind?   Do you believe it would be plausible to start a fresh cv citing that I have prior employment history within x line of work, that I'm not able to reveal due to a former abuser?  Obviously not an approach I want to use, but a significant chunk of my work history and certifications are out of my reach.   What would be the best way to go about explaining a seemingly late start in employment history if I went to an employer over here on a trial or volunteer basis to get experience to start my cv fresh, deliberately omiting my prior employment history and qualifications?   (sorry this seems a little vague but part of my former employment is very identifying, despite not being able to recall the employer well)

      @SheenaTHave you thought about perhaps a necklace that would hide well enough under your shirts, or perhaps a skin-toned polish on your toenails? I did that for a while before my wife and I separated.

      I quite imagine they would suit you well. Go for it.

      Used to be, I only saw shades of black, gray, tan, some red. Since realizing who I really am, I've discovered so many new colors, I need my daughter's help figuring out what goes with what. Never paid purple any mind, except when my older daughter wanted that for her bedroom walls. Now I'm sitting here wearing a lavender skirt. Heavenly.
