Just IN: After A Woman’s Death From #FGM, Court Frees Cutter On Bail🤦🏾
#SierraLeone: Magistrate Momoh Lanasana in Bonthe District has granted bail to a #woman accused of manslaughter after the death of a 21-year-old she subjected to FGM.
The Magistrate released the Sowei known as
Sowo Sandy who is said to be in her 60s after the prosecution, for the second time, failed to bring forth their witnesses.
21-year-old Maseray Sei, a #mother of two, died in December 2021 a day after undergoing the procedure at the hands of the Sowei.
An autopsy report says she
died after bleeding profusely from the procedure.
Sandy is charged with manslaughter and not directly for carrying out FGM because the practice itself is not outlawed outright even though the country’s child rights law forbids children from being subjected to “harmful treatment”.

My #FGM Heartbreak💔
"I Lost 2 Sisters To FGM!"
Halimatu Recalls Hers:
"I was born in #Liberia but due to the civil war, I was adopted by a Muslim couple from Sierra Leone when I was three years old.
I grew up there along with their three biological children.
My two elder sisters
and I were taken to our aunt's place. My sisters were 16 and 14, and I was 13 at the time. My 16-year-old sister stood up and ran away but our #Mother was the one to chase her and bring her back in. She was the first one they cut; the second one was my middle sister. I didn't see
when they were cutting them and I was the last. My eyes were tied and my foster mum took my hand and led the way. They asked me to lay down, which I obviously did. Suddenly, I felt this unbelievable pain. I started fighting and managed to pull the cloth from over my eyes: My aunt

My #FGM TORTURE💔
"I Wanted To Die..."
Hibo Wardere Recalls Hers:
"When I was six, a lot the #girls in my area had already had the procedure. They segregated you for not having been 'done' and told me I was unclean. After a while of these taunts, I asked my mother if I could have ImageImage
it.
She said yes, and I thought it was a good thing.
A few days later, we had a big party and all the attention was on me. I felt really loved.
The next morning, I was woken up at about 5 o'clock and my #mother gave me a big breakfast. Three women walked in an hour later, because
they don't want to carry out the procedure when the sun is up.
I was taken to the makeshift hut where I was to stay until I had recovered. I was told to sit on the floor, in front of one of the three #women.
The minute I sat down, the #woman put her hands underneath my armpits to

🔴 We're LIVE! Join @InclusionCA and @InclusionIntl to discuss the expansion of medical assistance in dying/#euthanasia in #Canada.

We'll be live-tweeting the session and sharing key points from the discussion here, follow this thread to catch the conversation!
👇
During the COVID-19 pandemic, #Canada legalized a pathway to euthanasia for people who are not terminally ill, provided they have a disability or disabling medical condition.
In practice, people with disabilities are dying because they live in poverty, can’t secure affordable adequate housing, and are avoiding #institutionalization.

This is the type of policies being pushed into K-12 school children by radicals disguised as “it’s just about kindness & love”. They’re brainwashing your children with political & gender propaganda all the while telling them to not trust you, their own parents. Take action!

🧵 There is a reason why we have minimum ages for several benefits in our society. 16 to drive, 18 to get a tattoo, 21 to buy alcohol, 25 to rent a car without restrictions. Car insurance companies charge a higher premium for drivers under a certain age.
We all know why. Every single one of us was 16, 18, 21, 25. Seriously think back, how much did you really understand about life?

Are we all seriously going to attempt to “have a conversation” with those who think it’s perfectly fine to sexually confuse 5 year olds?
That life altering hormone blockers & horrific sex surgeries for pre-teens and teens are anything but the desires of evil child abusers?

#Childcare #Mother #India

Among other oppressive forces working against women, one that is most difficult to face is "children need mother in early years".

This leads to exclusion of women from workforce for long periods.

Let's look at this assumption about mother's role.
A baby needs mother figure for attachment and nourishment. This is undeniable.

Key question is - How long?
In most traditional households this responsibility is continued literally till kids become adults and marry. !!

Look carefully. #Elephants are not crossing the road. Road is crossing the #forest. #WorldElephantDay
Do you know #elephant family is all women group. Made of #mother, #aunts, #grandmother & all other #ladies. Most of the times Male leave herd early. Kids are looked by all female elephants in herd, all are mothers. Grandmother makes all decision for the family.
Males keep on joining & leaving herds. Well one of the accepted theory is. That males when they get young are pushed out from the herd/family by dominant female, also called as matriarch. To check the inbreeding. Which only shows elephants are highly intelligent.

This past Sunday (May 9th) was Mother's Day in multiple countries, and someone apparently chose to mark the occasion by creating a spam botnet to spread feel-good content related to #Xinjiang, China. #HolidayAstroturf

cc: @ZellaQuixote
This botnet consists of 65 accounts with default profile pics created on May 9th, 2021. All have tweeted exactly three times, with the exception of @CaraLambrecht, which has only tweeted twice. All tweets thus far were (supposedly) sent via Twitter for Android.
Each account in this botnet has tweeted the same three tweets in the same order (again, with the exception of @CaraLambrecht, which skipped one). The most recent tweet from each account is a Xinhua YouTube video of children (allegedly in Xinjiang) saying "happy Mother's Day".

Obvious that experienced matriarch should lead #elephant family. She has accumulated immense traits/wisdom due to her long life. Which comes handy in long journeys & dangers. Not true for all. In #Zebras pregnant lead the way as she needs more water. #Buffaloes decide mutually. Image

My family, knowing how close I was to my #mother, is trying really hard to fill the gap

They mean well, but are wired so differently from me & see the world so differently, that it’s making it worse - I miss her more

She can’t be replaced
She’s gone

#COVID19 #grief
I am one of these circles.

I essentially want to be a circle of one right now, though.

Others’ ways of processing grief or their ideas of what I need can frustrate.

Everyone knows I was very close to Mommy.

But only I can take care of myself.
No one else can help me.
It’s not unique to grief. I accepted, a long, long time ago: only I can help myself.

I did find some sense of community in informal grief circles online. That meant a lot and helped in the first month. Now, it is just so personal, what my mother meant to me.

“I don’t know whether to be happy or sad that my story is not unusual. If I just say that I was born to a farmer in a Solapur village, you will get the drift. My mother was very young and used to everything that comes with being a mother of five girls." (1/10)
"As the eldest, I grew up determined to be the son. Fortunately, I was good at Math. I saved myself from early marriage by getting into an engineering college on merit. My sisters were very happy." (2/10)

#realstory #Finance #womenpower
"Not because I was going to study, but because they could now share the scooty that I used to ride to school!

I am like a mother to my sisters because I do not want them to go through what I did." (3/10)
