Ce ne sont pas les rôles traditionnels que tu définis @Fables_21e mais une application sociétale des rôles traditionnels

il y a un besoin urgent de les définir. Nous n'avons pas la même définition, ou plutôt tu n'as pas la bonne.
Les rôles traditionnels : métaphoriquement, lorsque les F crient « Au secours ! », les H viennent en courant pour aider

Les F ont toujours été le sexe protégé. C'était approprié tant que la survie humaine était en question, comme c'était le cas pendant d'innombrables millénaires
Les H ont donc assumé ce rôle et le font encore aujourd'hui; la biologie évoluée façonne puissamment le comportement, donc le simple fait que nous ne vivons plus dans un monde chargé des dangers auxquels ont été confrontées les sociétés de chasseurs-cueilleurs ne signifie pas

Another proof that #Qanon is a DeepState Pysop aka Grift remember this drop? You don't need to even be a computer expert to know this is BS all you have to be is someone who travels to other countries & use Google or 1 of many apps that translates words on signs & pics to know...
this is laughably untrue. You know what memes are great for? Brianwashing when you have an army of people sharing them. People see the same message over & over & it sticks in their subconscious it the very nature of how advertising works
They did the same thing in the Psyop Kony2012 which had far more followers that #Qanon (FYI they attacked me the same then when I help to destroy that one) They sold far more shit it that one they even gave kabbalah bracelets to anyone who bought their media kits. There were less

137 days since 17 Dembi Dolo University students hailing from the Amhara region were kidnapped. I spoke with families recently. The government appears commited to burying the story. Family members have been threatened, harassed & jailed.
Family members are a lot less willing to speak to press today than they were in January. They are being threatened by public officials and police. Relatives explained to me that they have been warned not to criticize the government over its response.
Two women, believed to be sisters or cousins of one of the missing girls, spent a month in jail for what I am told was their criticism of the government's response. They were only recently released from jail I'm told, as part of measures to avoid the spread of #Covid19 in jails.

1. It is six (6) years already, since the abduction of April 14th, 2014 In Government Secondary School (GSS) Chibok, where 503 students were on School extension writing their Final High School Exams (WAEC/NECO)
#6YearsTooLong #ChibokStory
2. The School is the only high School in the entire LGA and the community requested as it be turned to Co-education School for male students to also have access because of the closeness to their farming communities.
3. Thus; the reason of having large number of students in that school at the time of abduction. Many have questioned that, it wasn't possible to have that large number of students in a Village School. Note: The Chibok is a missionary hub, they started education early and still do

On this day 6 years ago, we woke up to 2 bomb blasts at a motor park/bus station in Nyanya. The strategic blasts occurred just before 7am when commuters were trying to make their way to their places of work. 100's died, 100's more were injured.

Boko Haram claimed responsibility.
Later that night, while Abuja + the rest of the country reeled from that attack, Boko Haram rolled into Chibok & abducted 276 school girls from their dorm; would have been more but some girls jumped off the trucks. Today is the 6th anniversary; over 100 girls are still missing.
I remember the first ever #BringBackOurGirls march like it was yesterday... Standing at Unity Fountain with @AbangMercy and co, and beginning the march led by @obyezeks. Then it started drizzling, and folks started turning back.

"Are you salt? Are you salt?" Madam Oby asked.

I came on @Twitter eleven years ago in April of 2009.

In all its Good, Bad and Ugly moments, one thing stands out for me: I love that many more citizens use their Voice.

If you are one of the 1 Million people that follow this handle, I hope we continue learning together.🙏🏾
Thanks @ChineEzeks for making me join @Twitter to be able to engage my passion of teaching Public Policy . You gave me the insight on hashtags and helped birth #PublicPolicy101.

The vision stays alive.

Daaalu! 🤴🏿❤️🤗🙏🏾

Thread: The #coronavirus pandemic underscores the importance of our elected officials. Black women are often ignored/marginalized by the pundit class, so I want to amplify some of their leadership/efforts. This isn't an A-Z encyclopedia but it's a start. #BlackWomenLead 1/10
Senator #KamalaHarris is a leader on intersectional policy/advocacy & sounded the alarm early about Trump's indifference to #Covid_19. She leads on paid sick leave, unemployment benefits & tirelessly advocates for BIPOC, children, workers & more. 2/10
Mayor #LondonBreed was the 1st mayor in the country to put in place a stay at home order. Her proactive leadership is being credited for the low level of cases and deaths despite the size and the 7 million population of San Francisco. #BlackWomenLead 3/10

Décadas passaram em que as autoridades britânicas ignoraram crimes de muçulmanos em gangues de estupradores de crianças e o perfil das vítimas: meninas brancas / sikh. Vou traduzir um documento interno de assistentes sociais de Rotherham, em Yorkshire, ajuda a explicar a omissão.
"Devemos ter grande cuidado ao redigir este relatório para assegurar que suas descobertas incluam os valores da diversidade de Rotherham. É imperativo que sugestões de um fenômeno cultural mais amplo sejam evitadas." (The Times, 24/09/2012.)
O tal do fenômeno cultural mais amplo cuja inferência os assistentes sociais tentaram abafar já estava sugerido na Holanda, em que relatos de gangues muçulmanas que levavam meninas não-muçulmanas à prostituição e drogas já tinham aparecido em 2001. (Radio Netherlands, 18/12/01.)

Today’s State of the Nation Broadcast is aimed at unveiling the true enemies of Nigeria. Please lend me your ears as we separate chaff from grains, tares from wheat, villains from heroes, and perverts from patriots. #SOTNB2020
Let us read Isaiah 5:20-24, a text of Scripture that, in my opinion, captures today’s topic in its entirety. #SOTNB2020
Fellow Nigerians, I welcome you to a new decade in the 21st century. About a hundred years ago, our founding fathers began the quest to build a great nation. #SOTNB2020

The Unbearable Lightness of Max Boot

@MaxBoot reveals that the most important thing about a president is mannerisms. Max will vote blindly for any deranged policies of any Democrat, because the Democratic candidate will not offend Max's sensibilities.…
@MaxBoot By the way, whatever happened to the #BringBackOurGirls movement? This is the kind of cool @MaxBoot likes in a presidential couple, above all else, policy positions and any substantive progress on anything be damned. @MaxBoot is a thinker & a strategist extraordinaire, you know.
@MaxBoot Some more presidential mannerisms that @MaxBoot is aching to vote for. Kamala Harris really strutting her presidential wares here. Watch the mesmerizing presidential performance.

Best wishes for your birthday @ObyEzekwesili. I still recall that evening in June 1993 when you walked into my house in the Samaru campus of Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria where I was teaching.
You demanded to know what we were doing to restore the stolen mandate of M.K.O. Abiola. You had said you got my contact from Shehu Yahaya, a mutual friend in the Lagos branch of Concerned Professionals.
What’s a bloody banker doing organising street protests all over the country I asked her? The moment the police tear-gassed and beat us up in Lagos Island for exercising our democratic right to protest, I realized I must struggle.

My dear young ones, if there is ONLY one thing you ever LEARN from me let it be this:
Be a person of Truth and Consistency.
When you are, no matter the LIES against you; events will unfold and find you still standing on the same spot of Truth and Consistency.
In this same country, in 2013 at a #UNNConvocationSpeech, I spoke up about the Squandering that was going on with the OIL BOOM MONEY. I asked then FG to stem the hemorrhaging.
What was their reaction?
By 2015 the TRUTH of what I said REVEALED!
In this same country in 2014, after 29 boys of FGC -Buni Yadi were gruesomely killed by terrorists and burnt to death with a video of their charred remains disseminated to taunt Nigeria, I asked then FG to ACT DECISIVELY & also POSTPONE Centenary Extravaganza.
