It takes courage to do what they did and then accept the accountability for it. Here's hoping that this glorious effort will serve as a lesson to every misogynist hiding behind their computers and spewing venom online.
There are many who see nothing wrong in what that vile man did. To hell with them. But a lot of men (and a few women) who otherwise stand against patriarchy have refused to support their act citing few concerns.

Let's address their arguments one by one.
"They shouldn't have taken law into their hands"

Like in the case of #MeToo movement, it is precisely because there is no proper process in place to address the problem that these activists had to take law into their hands. Active resistance arises out of a failed system.

Let’s talk about persecution, and why it animates the tyranny of Trumpism. The historic defense of violent American bigotry is a projection of persecution rooted in a violent denial of reality. 1/13
Slaveholders imagined they were being persecuted by immoral and illegal abolitionists. Read the statements of secession. White male slaveholders imagined they were being persecuted for being seduced by enslaved Black women they raped. Read their fiction. 2/13
Ku Klux Klansmen imagined White people were being persecuted by tyrannical Black politicians and voters and landowners and activists. Read the statements justifying their lynchings and massacres and whitecapping. 3/13

He's not courting Black voters. He's courting WHITE WOMEN.

He has no intention of making Juneteenth a holiday or signing KAMALA HARRIS' anti-lynching bill. He's trying to reassure white wmn that they're not racist if they vote for him, to give them smth to say to thr neighbors
White women know the only reason to vote for Trump is support of straight white male supremacy. Overturning Roe & Obergefell. Ending immigration of nonwhite ppl. Limiting voting rights. Ending SNAP & TANF while deepening economic disenfranchisement of BIPOC. Ending public ed.
Reversing trans rights. Making sure equal pay, #MeToo, reparations all die. Everything is an expression of cishet white male supremacy & everyone knows it. This is why he's losing suburban white women. They see themselves as "nice" & "not racist." He's very much opposed to both.

THREAD: I Do the Housework --
Why millions of men can’t muster the empathy to understand this issue shocks me. medium.com/@remakingmanho… /1
I’m a college educated white male. I have a deeply satisfying professional/personal life. I’m responsible for washing dishes, cooking, cleaning bathrooms, laundry, and general house cleaning. There are days when it is joyful and there are days when it feels bleak/oppressive. /2
I can not imagine what lifetimes of this work felt like for women of my mother’s generation. Trapped doing decades of this relentless invisible work. How it must have driven many women mad. /3

I'm primarily responsible for washing dishes, cooking, cleaning bathrooms, laundry, and general house cleaning. There are days when it is joyful and there are days when it feels bleak and oppressive. I CAN NOT IMAGINE what lifetimes felt like for women of my mother's generation.
Women of my mother's generation had a lifetime of this work forced on them, work which grew exponentially with each birth, many of which were unplanned. I'm looking at a few years of the current arrangement for a family of 3. My mother did it for 7 people for three decades.
If I had to stare down that 30 year tunnel, knowing full well my economic security hung in the balance, that my husband was missing in action much of the time, I'm not sure I would survive it. Men, do ALL the housework for a year. Only then will you understand what I'm getting at

Excited to learn from some amazing women during the first #aaslh2020 panel: #MeToo, and #BlackLivesMatter: Black Women Leaders Overcoming the Double Burden
@OEatonMartinez reminds us to get in good trouble, necessary trouble, along with taking time to #saytheirnames. Especially poignant this morning after the #BreonnaTaylor decision last night. #AASLH2020

1/ My informed opinion is that Hilary Morgan Leathem is using untruths to unfairly destroy Michael Balter's @mbalter reputation. As a survivor helping other survivors, I cannot sit back and watch this dishonest mobbing continue when it has traumatised us survivors who trust him..
2/ All these screenshots were from her twitter account when it was public. She recently protected her account, perhaps to defend against close scrutiny. Let's start with the lies she told about Balter that he was aware of: michael-balter.blogspot.com/2020/09/a-case… To the two in the blog, I add:
3/ Let's deconstruct these falsehoods. She claimed Balter initiated his offer to help. He did not, she DMed him hoping he could signal boost her tweets about her rapist and stalker. She claimed Balter asked for medical papers. He did not, she offered...

i think qanon's rise is due to, in part, the whiteness of #metoo.
when public discourse about rape is dominated by white people, on platforms owned by white people that focus on white women as victims, the discourse shifts from violence to sex because it's about white women's wounds.
white women then take up too much space, seeking validation from the state that created the problem to begin with—they ask politicians to believe them, they work with cops to test rape kits.

September 28th is the date that @itsmeeshashafi has to appear in court for the defamation case that is filed against her by @AliZafarsays 2 years ago.

This has gone on long enough. Please bring yourself and your witnesses to court. #DontMisuseMeToo #MeToo
If u can go & appear in marches, fly to Pk during covid, surely u can appear in court as well. Ms Shafi has to be cross-examined by @ambreenqureshi - & Ms Shafi is avoiding the court. Ms Shafi has been fined by court before for delaying tactics (Apr 2019) thenews.com.pk/print/456111-m…
Also invited to court, #IffatOmar, Ms Shafi's mother, actress Saba Hamid & Ms Shafi's manager (who stated he saw nothing untoward either). Also can her other super hardcore supporters also give their testimony?

Thread – Exposing Dementia Joe

1. It is imperative that Joe Biden be fully exposed REPEATEDLY between now and 3 November as the utter knave, fool, hypocrite, and demented man he really is.
2. Fortunately, that is easy to do, as there are many interviews that he has given that shine a spotlight on his lunacy – and not just years ago! There are dozens from the 2020 campaign alone that the legacy media have buried.
3. Here is one from a May interview on ABC’s The View. Watch it and be shocked.

After Payal Ghosh accused Anurag Kashyap of forcing himself on her, liberals have crept out of deadwood and saying that if all that had happened, why did Payal not say it earlier. Why now?

During the #MeToo outrage, same logic could have been applied in the case of Nana (1/2)
Patekar and Alok Nath among others but nobody objected to the delay, rather skewed "Feminism" was at its peak then. (2/2)

Democrats have never understood how much their Senators undermined their own norms, and norms of civility, on Kavanaugh.

That fact, maybe more than any other, is why Dems have no standing of higher moral authority with the GOP base.
I know more than a few Never Trumpers and other non-Trump voters that are still livid about Kavanaugh's treatment.

The fact that Feinstein and Kamala Harris likely openly lied during the testimony doesn't help matters.
Of course, Democrats compounded that by showing their own gross hypocrisy on #MeToo when a woman with more credible evidence than against BK came forward against Biden....

...and they then made him their nominee.

#PayalGhosh & #MeToo

I won't comment on @iamPayalGhosh’s allegations of sexual assault against @anuragkashyap72 as that is something he will have to deal with.
I will, however, say that I stand with #PayalGhosh's right to call out her perpetrator.
But...
...I have a problem when, in her video statement, #PayalGhosh herself assaults and maligns 3 other women... When, in her narration of the incident, she states a few baseless things abt @RichaChadha @MahieGillOnline #HumaQureshi as if they were facts...
I, like many other women, have been engaged wt the #MeToo movement since 2018, and especially since @mjakbar was accused of serial sexual assault by several women, including me, and when he decided to sue #PriyaRamani for defamation...

#Thread on the Vilification of Bollywood:

Of late, a pattern has emerged, where the Hindi film industry has relentlessly been under attack, accused of everything from 'nepotism' to being a 'drug mafia', with people holding Bollywood celebs more accountable than our politicians.
2/ Yes, the industry isn't perfect by any standards. It has a long way to go before it addresses the skeletons in its cupboards (and there are many). As does ANY other industry in India.

The difference is that Bollywood's many issues are a source of gossip for the larger public.
3/ And this gossip is the intoxicant that politicians and pliable news media have now recognised as most potent in keeping the public from questioning those in power.

We don't have data on migrant deaths, MSME closures, doctor deaths, but we know Rhea's entire Whatsapp history!

#Thread #MeToo #Metooindia Here’s why you shouldn’t unconditionally back men accused of sexual abuse, harassment, assault EVER. Even if you're 100% sure they’re being framed. (Read to the end for what you could do instead) 1/
Men with an impeccable public image, even the most “woke” types, admired & adored for their work, fighting injustices CAN AND DO sexually harass/assault and abuse womxn. And womxn speaking out against them are ROUTINELY dismissed, shamed, pushed into grief and trauma. 2/
Systemic rape culture leads to almost EVERY #MeToo claim being highly susceptible to being dismissed as fake. Each claim YOU dismiss a claim as fake you make that system a little stronger. That makes you an ENABLER. Countless survivors are living in trauma so pls stop. 3/

मैं यह बिल्कुल नहीं कहूँगा कि लड़कियों का वर्क प्लेस पर हरैसमेंट नहीं होता

लेकिन जब हैरेसमेंट हो रहा होता है तब लड़कियाँ आवाज़ नहीं उठाती

क्योंकि उस वक्त वो सो कॉल्ड बोल्ड, हाइली एम्बिसियस, कैरियर ओरिएंटेड, ओपन माइंडेड मॉर्डन गर्ल होती हैं...!!!

#AnuragKashyap
फिर एक दिन अचानक उनके अंदर सोया पड़ा फेमिनिस्म का नाग जाग उठता है

और उन्हें अपने साथ 4-5 साल पहले हुए सेक्सुअल हैरेसमेंट की घटना याद आती है और रोना पीटना शुरू हो जाता है

क्योंकि इन 4-5 सालों में मैडम ने न तो अपना करियर ही बनाया और न ही किसी अमीर लड़के से शादी की

#AnuragKashyap
अब करने को कुछ है नहीं तो चलो TRP और फेमिनिस्म का झंडा उठाकर ही थोड़ा नेम-फेम-और मनी कमा ली जाये

वैसे भी अपने समाज में नारी अबला है और पुरुष हिंसक जानवर..!!!

Those defending Anurag Kashyap today were shouting "Believe All Women" yesterday.

#MeToo was nothing but a tool used by urban women for political & personal witch-hunts.

In the long-run, it's only landed up further silencing the voice of women who needed a voice the most.
By making false allegations & using it to exact personal vendetta, these privileged (yes, I said it) urban women have only diluted the credibility of claims made by those who've actually gone through harassment & abuse & don't have a voice.

Indian feminism is elitist in its core
The number of innocent male employers wrongly framed under the "movement" for various reasons including not giving promotion to a certain disgruntled female employee, makes one wonder whether they'll ever hire women again.

So much for "empowering women" lol.

1/ I have an "unpopular opinion" about #MeToo that has been consistent since the very start.

I respect the allegations but don't believe them on face value.

I really want them all to be taken to logical conclusion for legal justice.

Otherwise its just a tool for harassment.
2/ #MeToo started for good but soon after people realised how emotional people can be for the movement and started using it for their gains.

Many a times allegations were just used by people who just hated the accused but they didn't bother for justice.
3/ Don't get me wrong, I am not calling any allegation to be false, just as much, I am not believing anyone to be true on face value.

All I want is am investigation, legal recourse and justice through proper channels, IN ALL THE CASES.
