Digging into some of the literature in advance of a talk I am giving next week on LGBTQ+ and STEM. #lgbtSTEM

Will tweet some 'highlights' from the literature: mdpi.com/2076-0760/6/1/…
LGBTQ+ rights in STEM are not better with age, and it is not just about waiting for the older generation to die off. #lgbtSTEM

mdpi.com/2076-0760/6/1/…
There's a great graph in the paper by Cech and Pham. This is the "workplace experience" of employees in US based STEM federal agencies. 3 = positive, 2 = neutral, 1 = negative. LGBTQ+ have a systematically worse of experience. #lgbtSTEM

THREAD: I’ve spent the last few weeks chatting with people about the upcoming #midterm elections. I’d like to share some of what I’ve heard and why this gives me so much hope.🇺🇸
I met these young women while walking my pups in my beachside community. For privacy reasons, I won’t share their real names (let’s call them “Julie” and “Amy”), but they graciously allowed me to share their stories.
One the best parts of walking my “boys” (Bowen and Bynum) is that I get to meet lots of strangers. I mean, who can resist these two?😍

Seriously, the pups break the ice, and as a consequence, I’ve met lots of interesting people.

WOMENS EQUALITY!
Allows men to be women
no Draft, MEN only!
Demands to be seen as beautiful despite effort or appearance
Called beautiful- now a victim
Equates victim/Accuser
Claims ludicrous behavior due to victim status
misogyny blamed in-lieu of personal accountability
I want TRUE equality! The current system has been designed to ensure that women receive preferential treatment!
To reap all of the rewards while taking none of the risk or putting forth any of the effort.
ITS AN INSULT!
Today’s #feminist wouldn’t make it a full day, of #Equality
AUTOMATICALLY BELIEVING A WOMAN who’s accusing a man of sexual assault....

the ULTIMATE form of #privilege this country currently participates in.

1) Starting a data series explaining India's #antiHindu system, 2nd class citizen status of Hindus and need for #HinduCharter (hint: #antiHindu system enjoys multi partisan support of all political parties, all branches of govt & so called pillars of #democracy & #equality)
2) Fountainhead of India's #antiHindu system is article 29&30 of constitution which cleverly denies #equalrights to Hindus allowing govt to enact #discriminatory laws/funding/programs & enables Supreme court to adjudicate contradictory laws in #antiHindu manner. #HinduCharter
3) Indian Govt confiscation of Hindu temples is 1 of the largest #religionfreedom violation in world. ALL political parties&Judiciary mostly support Hindu temple confiscation. For all practical purpose,Constitution right to freedom of religion is for nonHindus only. #HinduCharter

THREAD coming up: on #NakedFeminism, and why the cult of #FemaleModesty is so toxic, despite its well-intentioned aim of shielding women from the #MaleGaze & removing society's focus on women's bodies. #Feminism #Equality #Freedom
Something men realise but many women (including my critics) do not: it's not immodesty but #modesty that gives men power over women. It means they can embarrass and demean women. In turn, well-intentioned men seek to "protect" women by limiting their freedom to work & travel. 1/4
The cult of #femalemodesty doesn't help women - it leaves them vulnerable to daily abuse & to restrictions. It also leaves them feeling out of touch with their own bodies - as if their body is rude and alien. It gives men power over women - both inside & outside the bedroom. 2/4

I urge everyone to read this stark analysis of a world failed by self-serving leaders, & rife discrimination.

These are the parting words of Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein, @UNHumanRights High Commissioner in ⁦@TheEconomisteconomist.com/open-future/20…
Everything he writes resonates with the weight of our daily troubles.

Even as @BorisJohnson issues lazy, reckless & empty rhetoric, Hussein’s words remind us not only that Johnson’s like are morally cowardly, but also dangerous. Frothing, but incapable of advancing us. /2
As a Myanmar court sentences 2 @Reuters journalists to prison terms for exposing horrific crimes, as journalism is weighted down again as a crime, Hussain’s words resonate in a world busy with words, not actions.

“What are we saying to the perpetrators? Or to the victims?”

7 years ago, I wrote "Flushing the Potty Panic" for @transadvocate. I opined the solution to unlawful #discrimination in access to public accommodations in which nudity is unavoidable—toilets, showers, locker/dressing/changing rooms—because "separate but equal" is illegal…
is to ensure via #law that a sufficient number of secure, single user, #disability-accessible, #family-friendly facilities are provided for all people who for any reason desire or require #privacy or assistance, in the manner of the #ADA Americans With Disabilities Act of 1990…
at the same time we ensure by law that all people have the right to be free from unlawful discrimination on the basis of sex, gender, sexual or affectional orientation, or gender identity, appearance, expression, or behavior, regardless of sex or gender assigned at birth…

Gentlemen, don’t look for a Princess in need of saving, search for a Queen willing to fight by your side.
When we were little girls, we heard fairytale stories about a girl waiting for her Prince Charming to come and save her from her miserable life.

If you believe children shouldn't be separated from their families
If you believe women should have control over THEIR OWN bodies
If you believe that our planet is worth protecting
If you believe that racism should be fought every step of the way

Then you better make some noise
If you believe that men, even 'stars', are NOT entitled to sexually assault women

If you believe that bullying, domination, exploitation and violence will not bring us a better world

Then you'd better make some noise

Join us
Because, friends, we intend to be heard.

Werde an der @UniHeidelberg eine Vorlesung über Globalgeschichte der Demokratie halten.
Dabei fällt mir auf: Es gibt eine populäre Demokratiegeschichte, die in vielerlei Facetten in der Forschung zu finden ist (wobei es selbstverständlich eine großartige, vielfältige historische Demokratieforschung gibt):
1) Demokratiegeschichte ist Revolution und Aufruhr. 2) Demokratiegeschichte ist Männergeschichte. 3) Demokratiegeschichte ist Ideengeschichte. 4) Demokratiegeschichten sind meistens national:

1/ Have been really impressed with @Eco since their announcement late last week #cryptocurrency #financial #equality
2/ Their mission is succinct and they have a clear path towards their altruistic vision via @gc and @expa
3/ It’s an ambitious goal, clearly wrought with many obstacles, but built with a strong mission statement
