Josh Cavallo Just Fkn deleted transphobic gay group from Twitter
Warning: this story is about transphobia.
Adelaide United Josh cavallo, who recently revealed his homosexuality, brilliantly applauded the queer transphobic group LGB Alliance, and although it’s only been out for about two weeks, it has done more for queer people than they ever have.
Words cannot express how great I am Stan Cavallo, who made history as the first Australian professional footballer to come out while playing.
Not only did he show incredible courage in stepping out, he also used his platform to uplift and celebrate members of the LGBTQI + community, and speak out on the issues that matter most to us, such as putting on transphobic groups in their proper place. (Trash).
In a post on Twitter, the LGB Alliance shared a BBC article recounting the story of Cavallo’s coming out, saying they applaud him and hope he inspires others to come out too.
In his response to the tweet, Josh Cavallo only had one thing to say: “#LGBwiththeT”.
#lgbwiththet ❤️ ????

This man is truly an angel among men.
In case you were wondering what the problem is here, LGB Alliance is a transphobic “charity” that believes trans people are a “threat” to the rights of lesbian, gay and bisexual people.
No seriously. Here is a direct quote from their website: “We believe biological sex is observed in the womb and / or at birth and is not assigned. In our opinion, current gender ideologies are pseudo-scientific and pose a threat to people of same-sex sexual orientation, in the case of bisexuals, to both sexes. Furthermore, we believe that these ideologies are confusing and dangerous for children. “
Imagine that trans people are more of a threat to the queer community than actual transphobia. Really embarrassing, if not downright dangerous.

It is for this reason that Cavallo’s tweet actually makes a lot of sense – as it immediately invalidates the hatred of the LGB Alliance and replaces it with love and recognition from the trans community.

The LGB Alliance actually had the audacity to respond to the pullout, doubling down and making a weird joke about Cavallo requiring “less courage” to challenge them online. As if an organization afraid of trans rights could really talk about courage, but okay.
Don’t worry though – they were quickly roasted for that, too.
Maybe you should call yourself “GB Alliance” since you clearly can’t take the L

Many rights of gay people of all sexualities and genders today have been won by trans activists in particular. Trans women led the Stonewall riots. Let’s not fucking forget that.
