.@SarahbaxterSTM's argues that #fibromyalgia, #mecfs, #lupus, #depression, self-harming and #anorexia are caused by female ambition and fragility.

What's c. 1880 is new again.

This is just so silly. In the 19th century, there was a panic in the medical profession (and among social commentators) about women becoming ill with neurological and "nervous" conditions because they were overworking their brains/nerves, which were naturally weaker than men's.
This “fact” was used to bolster the argument in favor of stopping women's formal education after age 16 and most certainly not letting them enroll in university.

@SurvivorsnetBtn @RASASC_London @survivorstrust @Danvers07943910 @ObjectUK @BrightonSurvivorsNET “In the light of a highly disturbing increase of #transphobia locally & nationally…” IF everything anybody says or does is #transphobia, of course you can say it is rising. Any reputable statistics?
@SurvivorsnetBtn @RASASC_London @survivorstrust @Danvers07943910 @ObjectUK “…so the date @Womans_Place_UK event feels like a concerted effort to make #trans ppl, & particularly #transwomen, feel #intimidated and #invalidated” Is it the position of SN that the sensitivities of #transwomen mean that #democracy should be suspended any time they say so?

1. As we get ready to celebrate a huge civil rights victory for LGBTQ community in #India, here is a short thread on the people who sowed the seeds for this day… so we know who to thank #PublicHealthHistory #HIVMovement #Section377
2. In 2002, some 30-odd health workers from Naz Foundation were picked up by cops for counselling gay men. They were booked under #Section377 & obscenity laws. They remained in jail for over a month for basically telling gay men to use condoms! #HIVHistory #India
3. This was also the time of global panic about the HIV epidemic. #Cipla was yet to start rolling out low cost generic anti reterovirals.. so.. prevention was the only intervention. #Section377 #HIVHistory #India

This has played on my mind for a few months now because the conversation keeps popping up between myself & a handful of close friends. I am regularly & consistently asked how I made changes in my life. Referring to the last 3 years & specifically the last 6 months (all of 2018).
Change wasn’t easy for me. But the choice to change WAS. Let’s deal with the drugs and #ChemSex stuff first. I eventually began to emerge from some crippling emotional trauma in 2015. My reality was not as bad as it had previously been.
Then the whole #HIV thing happened which very quickly sparked the whole #PrEP thing. I very unexpectedly found myself working intensely and passionately on something I cared about. That I loved. There was a responsibility that came with it. The responsibility not to screw it up.

BREAKING: We just sued the US @DeptOfDefense along with @OutServeSLDN on behalf of Nick Harrison, a veteran of two overseas combat tours who was denied a position in the Judge Advocate General (JAG) Corps thanks to the Pentagon's outdated #HIV policies. lambdalegal.org/blog/20180530_…
Thanks to the medical realities of 2018, a person living with #HIV can safely perform any job.

But existing Pentagon policies prevented Nick, who lives with HIV, from commissioning. A necessary update to these policies is WELL past-due.
#HIV is managed no differently than other chronic illnesses that allow an individual to enlist or be appointed as an officer, so long as certain criteria are met. These conditions have no effect on force readiness.

There are *many* HIV+ JAG officers already serving!

We really need to talk more about #abortion as an option for women.
It's hard to say this and hard to hear it for many, but just because you discover you are pregnant doesn't mean you must carry that pregnancy to term. Your decision will last the rest of your life--and the rest of the life of any child you decide to carry to term.
#abortion
And no, I am not advocating #abortion.
I'm advocating thinking about parenthood & all it entails.
Because once you have a child, you can't just walk away from that life.
And women/girls are talked into maintaining pregnancies every day.
More discussion would change that.

1 - right, this is my 1st attempt at a long thread. I feel I’ve discovered something interesting & a penny has dropped! Some things #DeepState are doing doesn’t make sense on its own but when you put them together, it begins to fit. Happy reading!
2 - okay, here’s a thought... what’s #foodsafety ‘use by’ dates got to do with #chemtrails #GeoEngineering? Chemtrails would fall on everyone including the evil. I believe they only react with certain other chemicals; those in drugs popular with us non-elite...
3 - #ibuprofen (ans to physical pain) & depression drugs (and to psychological pain). Most of us covered! The aim of chemtrails it to react & weaken our #immune system while #vaccines reduce our #fertility as well as weaken us. @BillGates even admitted in a @bbc interview...

This is in many ways a restatement of the Mamet Principle, but it shows that at the upper echelons of leftist thought, the pretense of ignorance is used in a highly strategic manner to achieve "social justice "goals. This can and will be demonstrated by deconstructing #Parkland.
The point is that the advancement of the illogical argument is only stupid on the surface, and this is in fact a logical pattern of viral malice.

Hanlon's Razor ("Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.") can be and IS weaponized everywhere.
Hanlon's Razor fails because "adequately" is easily spoofed. All manner of deceptions can be used to make an intelligent process return a wrong value for "adequately". Science works because nothing remains "adequate". Every theory of gravity falls to a better one, eventually.

#AUS #QAnon

With over $75 million 'donated' by both sides of politics, AUS appears to be the biggest single foreign-government source of #ClintonFoundation funds

Add #ClintonClimateInitiative and we go up to 100s of millions a YEAR.

#Auspol
get on this NOW lazy #Ausmedia
It was money Well SPENT
In 2009, the so-called charity #ClintonGlobalInitiative bought actress Natalie Portman a first-class ticket for herself and her Yorkshire terrier to attend its conference at Texas University, Austin
#ClintonFoundation spent $US12 million on air travel in 2011 alone, with @BillClinton personally racking up a million dollars of that sum. If used for normal travel, the $US12 million could have financed 33 trips a day that year. Travel costs for the decade to 2013 came to $US50m

The devil is in the details of this "religious freedom" guidance, as they say. #LicensetoDiscriminate
