TY @innodim for inviting me to speak! My cognitive PEM wouldn’t let me be great but I appreciate her encouragement & summary! Want to be sure my main points are clear in re to Black Maternal #Mental Health, Perinatal Mood & Anxiety Disorders #PMADs, & disparities.#AIMART #BMHW22
I am no expert, so I'll share what I know. Black mothers are more at risk of #PMADs & are less likely to receive treatment b/c the structural social & economic inequities as a result of #antiBlack #racism & #misogynoir in this white supremacist patriarchal society.#BMHW22
“Close to 40% of Black mothers will suffer from postpartum depression [(PPD)]” OR ‘Systemic racism & sexism harm Black mothers which manifest as PPD for a reported ~40%.’ Addressing these risk factors associated w PMAD is key:
Lack of access to high-quality medical care

I'm loving @AnnamiePaul's resignation speech because she didn't shy away from the fact that the attacks against her have worn her down. That's true, that's real. This is real mental health shit #cdnpoli
The @canadiangreens kneecapped her then engaged in the gaslighting which is what many BIPOC experience in leadership positions. You can't window-dress and expect to solve everything
"Crawling over glass, spitting up blood". I love this. This is exactly what it feels like. She's being very real and I'm here for it. Canada needs to take a hard look at why it engages in so much #misogynoir and the Greens had better take a hard look at their racism

So #misogynoir almost cost Meghan Markle her life. She thought of dying by suicide because of the misogynoir she was experiencing. She has all the class and color privilege and still felt this way. Think about the reality for other Black women.
I am confused by "Meghan experienced racism not misogynoir." I understand that she has a white and a Black parent. She is really light skinned and I get people saying she looks white but she is clearly not white passing if the press compared her newborn baby to a monkey.
Because I can't leave well enough alone.…

Wikipedia edit history shows how malicious a lot of the #MeghanMarkle hate is, and how much of it is about trying to shape the narrative about her via trolling and misinformation. A thread:
Evidence of disruptive editing and vandalism which began in earnest when #harryandmeghan 's relationship was announced. Archie's page gets it too after he's born screenshot of Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor's wikipediscreenshot of Meghan, Duchess of Sussex's wikipedia page andscreenshot of Meghan Markle's wikipedia page before marriagescreenshot of Meghan, Duchess of Sussex wikipedia page with
A LOT of back & forth over how to talk about Meghan's race. Didn't include all those b/c the majority didn't seem overtly malicious & the careless ones got smacked down quick by editors. These however, are clearly malicious, note the "I speak truth" in the first pic about Archie screenshot of a wikipedia edit in which a racist comment saya screenshot of Meghan, Duchess of Sussex's wikipedia page e

it looks like iwriteok has finally blocked me bc i do not support arson and guns like he does.

here he is marginalizing and minimizing a black woman and speaking as if he knows her intent or frame of mind #misogynoir

i find this tweet to be racist.
"She is trusting..." U iwriteok don't know that----you PRESUME THAT

"that the optics of her standing there" U are essentialising & demeaning her as a black woman

"will be all big media folks see."--U speak as if she is intentially deceiving

#racist #Mansplain #misogynoir
iwriteok ----as the voice of the antifa patriarchy is not willing to concede his white male privilege aura of authority ----to a real black woman of portland----this snide racist remark from the gun-toting arson promoting misogynist #misogynoir
when will antifa apologists in PDX

1/ I have a long thread in the waiting about Biden's VP possibilities (I'm trying to convert it from a private blog essay) but I just read some goofball say that Harris won't get it - in his estimation - because she was a bad campaigner.

This is nonsensical.
2/ Even if it were true (who was a good campaigner? Biden? C'mon now. I think ppl compare every Dem to Bill Clinton & Obama and that isn't fair) when have VPs been picked on their campaign skills?

I gave the answer already, b/c Obama picked Biden as VP in '08
3/ But look at the Dem VPs from 1988 til now

88 = Bentsen? nope
92 = Gore? Hahahahahahaha
00 = Lieberman? Joementum-outa-here
04 = Edwards. Yes. He was better than Kerry
08 = Biden? No way
16 = Kaine? Srsly?

So 1/6 since '88 for Dems

This white woman, Julia Austin, has been doing digital blackface for YEARS and is a top contributing writer for Black women’s blog, @MadameNoire . This is disgusting yet very unsurprising. She’s literally taking up space and money meant for Black women content contributors.

Two days ago I talked about #whitesupremacy. Yesterday I talked about #patriarchy.

Combine those two toxins and you get misogynoir, the vile poison suffered by women of color, and more specifically, black women.
Yesterday I joked and told a friend the amount of rum it would take for me to discuss #misogynoir would put me in a coma. I wish that was funny. I don’t want to write about this sober. I’m not qualified to discuss this with nuance and deftness.

Also, I am out of rum.
Coined by a queer black feminist Moya Bailey, misogynoir lies at the heart of all of what we think of as intersectional.

If you could imagine a Venn diagram that displays the overlap of racism, sexism, transphobia, & homophobia, the cruel bullseye at its center is misogynoir.
