social media users have rallied behind TikToker Shamirun Nessa for her videos about Jeffrey Marsh.United Kingdom-based Nessa "stitched" a video of her fellow TikToker where she accused them of encouraging children to privately message them on their Patreon account.It comes amid a wave of backlash against LGBTQ people in the United States as around 26 states attempt to outlaw gender-affirming care for minors and redefine drag performers as "adult-oriented entertainment" to ban them from performing near children.The February 22 video begins with Marsh saying through gritted teeth in one of their TikToks, "stop telling trans people that we're inspirational." Nessa "stitched" the video—a TikTok feature where users can combine their video with another user's—and mimicked Marsh's style of speaking."Stop telling kids to go on your Patreon and chat to you privately without their parents knowing," Nessa said in the video, which had 4.6 million views at the time of writing.She captioned the post: "TO ALL PARENTS AND GUARDIANS PLEASE BE CAREFUL AND KEEP YOUR MUNCHKINS SAFE!"Marsh, who is nonbinary and uses they/them pronouns, is an LGBTQ advocate who runs a viral social media brand.
Through their social media, they teach "daily lessons in generosity and kindness, teaching the public about what it means to be trans nonbinary, an ally and a compassionate human," according to the Los Angeles Times.Outside of social media, Marsh works as a "breakthrough and gender counseling coach, helping straight and LGBTQ people attain a lasting sense of peace and self-compassion," and as a keynote speaker.
