Intressant. Apropå fördumning av kultursverige, fenomenet har observerats länge inom IT branschen tills det blivit slagkraften

Man retrierar till det ockulta, bakom stängda dörrar, i "#moln" 🌩️ med minimalistisk fasad, en liten Alexa aparat @einaraskestad antipodden.se/2018/12/07/avs…
Fördumningen av #kultursverige är alltså en metod för att håna och mobba, liksom titta där nu fick vi en av de ekonomiska kolonialisterna, white boi tears skall rinna tjejer 🥳🎉 #orgie #orgie #svpol

*stirrar på sin intersektionella karta för att vara "inne"*

Ge dem ingenting
Fördumningen är också #IndustriellEspionage på bägge industriell och institutionaliserad skala. #Allvarligt

Tanken är att vi får en ny överklass, postkolonialisterna, som sitter över en som Rosengårdsklaner i Ystad som fick tillgång till ett obetydligt CV

I’ve been researching female agency in anticolonial resistance and it’s an extremely interesting subject… I’ll be publishing on this in due course but can’t help sharing some pics here… (ongoing thread)
#anticolonial #resistance #femaleagency #empire
Firstly, Josina Muthemba Machel (1945-71), an important figure in the anticolonial struggle against the Portuguese in #Mozambique. #anticolonial #resistance #femaleagency #empire #machel #josinamachel
In 1964, at 18 yrs old, Josina Machel fled the country with the aim of joining the FRELIMO resistance movement in Tanzania, but was arrested and returned to Mozambique. She was imprisoned for five months.

#MadisonWI elects it’s first lesbian mayor and it’s first all-woman school board tonight. Proud to have each of these elected officials. Excited for Madison’s queer feminist future, perhaps it will be one that actually begins to address the massive racial issues in the city.

Feminism Is Not Here To Help Men.
As a feminist one of the question I get frequently from men whenever I'm talking about feminism is "does it also speak up for men"?...

#Athread
first I'm going to say, why do you have to be so fucking selfish, like you don't need to directly benefit from Justice to speak up against injustice, do you? And patriarchy on its own is injustice against women...
so why do you want this to be about you before you identify with it?

And now to answer your question, NO.

Feminism is not here to help you.

I know you've heard that feminism is about equality of both sex, which undoubtedly is true...

"After all these testimonies, including those particularly informative, Gerald Butts and the Deputy Minister of Justice, Nathalie Drouin, we understand a little better what happened in the pseudo-scandal that disrupts the politico-media class from English Canada." #cdnpoli 1/22
"Certainly, nothing in this affair required Prime Minister Trudeau to do his act of contrition, as claimed by the most enthusiastic commentators of the English-language media." 2/22
"It is rather those who raised a statue to Jody Wilson-Raybould who should do their examination of conscience."
Lysiane Gagnon being the voice of reason in this tsunami of media misdirection. 3/22

@thecadclub retweeted an article about #Putin praising Russian women for STAYING BEAUTIFUL and taking care of the home.

Then I read this article.

Clear as day to me.

We need to talk about GENDER REALITIES IN RUSSIA AND IN THE WEST.

THREAD 👇
1.EXPECTATIONS

What is expected of women?

Let's ask Putin:

“You manage everything at work and at home, whilst staying beautiful, bright, and charming”

G answer. PURE HONESTY.

First, be beautiful, bright and charming.

All men know that. Only Western societies live in denial
Even the WOMEN agree:

"When women are young, they value their appearance most of all, but by their thirties they give in to the dominant norms and admit that the most important quality in a woman is being a good homemaker."

Be hot when you're young. Be supportive later.

Thread time!

As a multi-hyphenate comedian-healer-performance artist-academic-entrepreneur-human, I know the value of social media for getting my gifts out but have always struggled to fit into it and not feel like an indecipherable spaz.

Who else? ☝️

Several times I’ve created new/separate Twitter accounts to clarify when I’m being satirical and when I’m being sincere, but I end up disliking and neglecting all of them because detaching essential aspects of myself and my offerings never feels right.

Anyone else?? 👋
It’s taken me a long time to conjure the confidence to be misunderstood, but finally I think I’m going to go ahead and give myself permission to be confusing. At least for people who don’t take the time to learn what I’m about.

I mean, it is just Twitter, after all...

[short thread]: if you're looking for a good analysis of why TERFism is so much more widespread and virulent in the UK than the US, you should check out this @nytopinion piece: nytimes.com/2019/02/07/opi… #trans #transgender #LGBTQ #feminism #feminist
...interestingly this is 2nd piece I've seen suggesting that UK TERFism grew out of UK skeptics movement from the 90s/00s. the other is this essay, which is great read (but please media outlets, don't format your articles so they cannot be saved as PDFs!):
theoutline.com/post/6536/brit…
...another factor cited in the aforementioned @nytopinion piece is British history of colonialism, which dovetails with what I said in this thread from back in October about how central intersectionality is in contemporary US feminism...

The #Saudi regime’s “Authority to Counter-Extremism” has made a one-minute ad in which it conflates women who escape Saudi male guardianship with men who join ISIS and other violent extremist groups. The conflation of feminism with terrorism. I am writing about this. Wow.
#Saudi regime trolls have attacked me for past month for helping Rahaf. They’ve accused me of kidnapping “our girls” and conflated feminism with terrorism. Sound familiar? It’s an old trick. Remember American Christian Evangelical Pat Robertson. #Feminism terrifies authoritarians
And here is the ad: feminism is terrorism. This is incredible!

I’ve been silent for a while. The irony doesn’t escape me. Once, my mum, who was a dinner lady at my primary school, told me that at break I used to go around to the “misfit” kids, the kids nobody else would talk to 1/18 #letawomanspeak
and play with them, creating my own little group. My mum said she was so proud of me for standing up for those who couldn’t stand up for themselves. Over the last few days I’ve watched our movement fracture and splinter #feminism 2/18
It’s been a long time coming. I can’t stand back in good faith and not speak out when I see other women being vilified in the way @JeanHatchet has been. I stood up for Posie and LAWS was created. I stand up for Jean now. 3/18

Mega thread: UNDERSTANDING BLACK HOLE, UNIVERSE AND QAYAMAT via QURAN and KAALI MATA.
.
All of us know that earth and our planets revolve around sun.
Surprise: Our whole solar system too revolves around a thing called BLACK HOLE (cosmic representation of Kali Mata) too.
Two basic things for non science students: Wherever there is mass, there is attractive force. The more is the mass, the more is gravitational pull.
Size is NOT SAME as mass.
Eg- This balloon may have same size as a ball of metal, but will be lesser in mass.
Black hole has quite a powerful gravitational pull. Just like Sun is made of MASS of several stars combined;
A black hole is has mass of several suns combined!

I know i make a lot of noise, but heres something thats been on my mind lately. Im over here waiting. Listening. Praying. For us to take back the word #feminism. Feminism is a beautiful thing & Im tired of it being shat on by entitlement seekers. Then it just hit me.
We cant wait & take back. We need to accept that we wont make everyone happy. We cant play peacemakers & take back feminism. Im done waiting. Who's with me? I dont want this to be the end of it. I'll be fervently reading, writing, watching & listening. Who's with me? #Feminism
Again, I know i make a lot of noise but hhis noise needs to go somewhere & i need to drive my noise just like the rest of you need to drive yours. We need to turn our noise into action.Turn our noise into persistance.Into the next step that we take.Not the next step we are given.

irishtatler.com/remembering-th…

They couldn't find one #POC to remember for #RepealedThe8th.

Make no mistake, this is how we are stamped out of history created off our backs.

Because this is 'Remembering the Women Whose Campaigning Led to This Historic Voting Turnout' for posterity.
Sure, I didn't have even the startup loan, or the ability to source popup stores, or mass produce a single branded product behind a Middle Ireland four-letter name,

but @irishtatler still saw fit to include a photo of ppl wearing my merch in print? So why not give a voice?
Also, it is. CRIMINAL. that @JanetOS_ - included in #BBC100Women, a key rallying force behind ARC, blatantly and unceremoniously silenced for being too 'inconvenient' and diverse and honest in her approach to the ref because she'd been personally affected by it - wasn't included.

LONG THREAD: I am often asked about male privilege. It happened a lot yesterday, because of stuff that happened on the internets, which I will not be directly addressing here. But this seems like as good a time as any to share some thoughts about the topic more generally...
1) I think that the concept of privilege (in general) functions best as a tool to help people in the dominant/majority group see otherwise invisible advantages that they may be experiencing as a result of *not* being a member of a marginalized/minority group...
...one of a million possible examples: do you ever worry about people not taking you seriously, or employers not hiring you, or doctors ignoring your medical needs, etc., because you are transgender? if the answer is no, then you experience cisgender privilege!

Had an infuriating conversation with my mum’s physio today about the #MeToo movement.
As she finished her treatment for mum, as part of her usual chats with me, she said today, “I am so tired of all this drama surrounding #Sabarimala and #MeTooIndia

@IndiaMeToo #TimesUp
Excerpts: “If something happened 25 years ago, why didn’t people speak up then? Why keep quiet? All for negative publicity now.”

Perhaps because the ostracisation that existed before isn’t as vicious today. Because finally, there are people to listen.
#MeToo #TimesUp
“As long as you are dignified in your behaviour and dressing, nothing will happen.”

I was 11 when someone first touched me the wrong way. It was at my own house, I wore a half sleeved Kurta (free-sized because I was a plump kid) and jeans.

What would you tell 11yo me?

I guess the cost of hating Kathleen Wynne is 210,000 Ontario college students losing their funding.

#onpoli #DougFord
I guess the cost of hating Kathleen Wynne is minimum wage earners in Ontario losing a $2000 per year income increase.

huffingtonpost.ca/2018/10/23/ont…

#onpoli #Bill148 #15andFairness
I guess the cost of hating Kathleen Wynne is taking away the ability to take time off work if you or your child has been threatened with/experienced sexual, physical, or domestic assault.

my is my promised THREAD for my new essay: Putting the “Transgender Activists Versus Feminists” Debate to Rest (btw, it's on Medium, so please give it lots of "claps" so that others see it!) medium.com/@juliaserano/p… #transgender #women #feminism #LGBTQ #gender #activism
...I saw some wild claims about my piece yesterday, so I will attempt to clarify here. my first point: there is a long history of feminist debates and discourses regarding trans ppl. Talia Bettcher discusses this in her critique of that Stock piece: dailynous.com/2018/05/30/tab…
...as someone who has played a small part in that history, and who spends much of my time in feminist settings, I can tell you that the "feminist debate" regarding trans people is largely settled, as most contemporary feminist recognize that...

For me, the real issue in the #trans #GRA reform is #maleviolence against #female & trans. I note #transmen seem to be absent from discussion. They obvs don't present as #women so don't use women's spaces. But they can't draw attention to themselves as trans because... (1/2)
(2/2) in a male space they would run the risk of attack by men who would see their bodies as still female. I can't find stats on transmen being violent, or female violence on transmen. I guess there will be some, but very small no's. The problem is male violence. #patriarchy...
So we need to be looking at #male #violence and how/why our society raises #boys to think violence is a way of dealing with the world. NB I know this is a generalisation and not all males are violent & not all females are peaceful!

From Memes to Infowars: How 75 Fascist Activists Were “Red-Pilled”. bellingcat.com/news/americas/…
The vast majority of domestic terror attacks in the U.S. are carried out by white supremacist organizations. Atomwaffen, a neo-Nazi death squad with five killings to their name, is probably the deadliest fascist group to have arisen since 2016. /1
One member of Atomwaffen, Vasillios Pistolis, was an active duty U.S. marine when he marched at the first Unite the Right rally. Pistolis also posted regularly on a series of fascist and white supremacist Discord servers, prior to and after joining Atomwaffen. /2
