I just finished a stint in @Twitter jail for "hate speech" (I quoted Jay-Z's song "The Ballad of OJ & used the N word instead of some euphemism like ni99a).

Whoever is in charge of "hate speech" at @Twitter is more dedicated to silencing black folk than actual hate speech.
@Twitter In any case.

Recently I gave a brief, incomplete primer on white supremacy. Any time I discuss racism, I’m obligated to confront my own internal biases, and check my own internalized #misogyny.
@Twitter What follows is directed to any men reading this. Any women reading this: please feel free to add to, amend, or correct this diatribe. The LAST thing I want to do is mansplain misogyny to women.

First of all, all #patriarchy is sexism.

Folks - Let's talk about race, privilege, identity, and what constitutes a legitimate claim to knowledge in the study of Indian history. THREAD #AcademicChatter #AcademicTwitter #history #India
I've been accused in the last day or so of being a white women talking about Indian history. This mistakes a key point: My authority to speak about specific aspects of the Indian past does not rest on the color of my skin or on my gender.
I speak about Indian history as a trained scholar. We've been over this ad nauseam - I read Sanskrit, Indo-Persian, Braj Bhasha, Hindi & Urdu. I hold a PhD in South Asian Studies. I'm an Assistant Professor of History at a research university. I publish peer-reviewed scholarship.

Introducing my #the100dayproject inspired by @QMUNITY and my fellow #ADE @Sharon_Drummond. 100 days, 100 GIFs, 100 queer terms to educate and connect our community and allies. All GIFs created with #AppleKeynote and will be compiled on @GIPHY : giphy.com/channel/joepau… @AppleEDU
Day 1: QUEER - widely used among the community to refer to the spectrum of non-heterosexual +/ non-cisgender ppl as a shorthand. Important - this is RECLAIMED language that was/is still used as a hate term. #pride #education @QMUNITY @sogiUBC Follow along ———> #100daysofQueer
DAY 2: HETERONORMATIVE - social roles & structures that reinforce idea that heterosexuality is the presumed norm and is superior to other sexual orientations. #pride #education #sogi #humanrights @QMUNITY @sogiUBC @HRC

Follow along —-> #100daysofQueer created on #AppleKeynote

In my neighbourhood there was a serial sex predator breaking into women's homes and sexually assaulting them in their own beds. It's bad enough that women routinely have to take more precautions than men to do basic things like go for a walk or a jog. 1/ #sexualassault #crime
I can't describe to you what it's like to be afraid to do something as necessary as falling asleep in your own bed at night. This is what happened to many women in my neighbourhood. 2/ #VAW
At the time this was going on, a lot of women talked to me about their fear, about being afraid in their own homes, being unable to fall asleep or stay asleep in their own beds. There were a lot of exhausted women in my neighbourhood. 3/ #crime #fear

@PeteButtigieg really can't afford to play to #misogyny when the majority of Dem voters are women.
This was an ill-considered cheap shot at his competition when EVERY senator running called--rightly-- for Franken's resignation.
Stop blaming women for men's actions.

Unsurprising that Matthews is fixated on Franken two years later. He has issues.

This is a very important topic to understand. Deep #misogyny is the current underlying much of what we are seeing and experiencing. stitcher.com/podcast/voxs-t…
So much about what is going on right now is tied to deep misogyny.

Via EUObserver via @Billbrowder and @lauferlaw Opposition MPs in Romania have introduced a #humanrights sanctions law named after late Russian activist, #Magnisky

@Billbrowder @lauferlaw @maddow @ACLU @HRC @amnesty @UNHumanRights @CJR @ICIJorg @OCCRP @guardian @NatashaBertrand #Romanian law is to be named after #Magnitsky, a Russian #antiCorruption activist who died in prison in 2009 and in whose honour Britain, Canada, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, and the US have already passed similar ‘Magnitsky Acts’
@latimes @washingtonpost @sfchronicle @PolitiZoom
@Billbrowder @lauferlaw @maddow @ACLU @HRC @amnesty @UNHumanRights @CJR @ICIJorg @OCCRP @guardian @NatashaBertrand The fact #Romania, which holds the #EUpresidency until 1 July, was moving ahead on a national level would lend “symbolic support” to the EU-level action, an EU diplomat said.

There are no doubt some brill clinicians at #BIGSPD19 + more importantly service users bravely speaking out. But what appears to be missing is consideration of how the lack of services +care for the majority of patients that is lamented is produced by ideas of ‘BPD’ it promotes.
Rather than have conferences for specific diagnoses,which exclude as many people as they include but make attendees feel like vanguards, we need whole workforce, trans-diagnostic commitment to depth help for those experiencing the kind of sphlintering anxiety that can wreck life.
That is whole workforce training on things like:
- dissociation and other extreme states
- the profoundly complex and human ways that we can try to show others the often unspeakable pain we are in
- staff sadism and it’s enactments
- scaffolding alongside trauma work
- hope etc

1/ Just briefly wanted to talk about some of my concerns about how the media is covering the 2020 Women Candidates but I'll start with 2016. #MondayMotivation #mondaythoughts #GroupThink #WhiteMaleMedia #Bias
#Misogyny #Racism #Hypocrisy
2/Its problematic that our media is dominated by white males who work in groupthink (Look at #TheMuellerReport's groupthink 'conclusion' coverage). It's especially problematic when it comes to covering white male candidates vs female candidates, female & male candidates of color.
3/Thankfully we have news programs like @JoyAnnReid that are incredibly inclusive. I'd like to see more news programs follow her model, but even w/ that we still need MORE diverse voices on TV that we haven't really seen yet. We need more statistics based coverage less punditry.

This the last tweet I’m going to engage with specific #DezNat things. I’ll still call out hateful individuals, but really this is shite behavior. Don’t try and deny it.Most of y’all are homophobic, misogynistic, transphobic, racist individuals — whether you “think” you are or not
Feel free if you’ve received hate from #Deznat to post it here. I figure we need a thread about it. #callthemout
Jus because someone calls out your shitty behavior doesn’t make them hateful. @lennie_mennie And see how deftly he dismisses the harassment of feminists and the meme that was made? #misogyny

Good morning Twitter friends. I’m still in bed sick, but possibly on the mend at last after 4 days. Last night @tropigalia & @laura_luna asked me to do a #thread on the devaluing & misrecognition of #femme relationships so here we go.
First, if you don’t know what femme is, read this, this thread will still be here: bustle.com/articles/16608…
So to be clear, femme is a queer gender expression not tied to sex or gender identity. Femme is also not exclusively about appearance, but this thread will emphasize appearance bc I’m going to talk about the way femme relationships are read, thus based on visual cues.

Inexplicably there are still folks in my mentions more than a year later claiming that only #Gillibrand called for Franken to resign when 32 Democratic senators + Bernie Sanders did so.
Franken could have stayed and faced hearings.
He didn't.
What #Harris said was most succinct.
Minority Whip Patty Murray was most damning in her thread:
My own Dem senator, Bob Casey, made the important point that Democratic men had to be held to the same standard as GOP men.

35 Democratic senators called for @AlFranken to resign.

#SpoilerAlert : Every senator running for president in 2020 is on the list, male and female.

So if you're still blaming a woman for a man's actions, your #misogyny is showing.
politi.co/2ixfATF
Al Franken resigned a year ago,replaced with a much more progressive woman who is not accused of non-consensual sexual misconduct with 8 women & who was elected in a landslide.

If you're still dividing Dems with your misogynist disinformation, you're working for the GOP.
We honestly can't afford misogynists in the Democratic party in 2020.
Not men, not women.

The best chance to beat Trump is a woman candidate.

Don't send me your Franken conspiracy theories.
Just try to move into the 21st century.

Your daily reminder that women are not responsible for men's bad acts.
#Franken resigned after EIGHT women accused him of sexual misconduct/assault.
He chose to leave the Senate rather than face his accusers.
Calling responsible women "mean girls" is #misogyny.
Period.
No other Democratic senators were accused of sexual assault.
Just Franken. Not one of the Democratic presidential hopefuls like Booker, Brown or Bernie (I know, "he's not a Dem!") were accused.
Just Franken.
A lackluster senator replaced by a more progressive and active woman.
Franken truthers still claiming that women are to blame for his actions because you liked #SNL are divisive and misogynist.
Sometimes men we like behave badly.
It's a (dangerous) fact women have had to deal with for millennia.
Don't accept it--tell/teach men to be better.

THREAD (PART 3 of 4): Why you shouldn’t trust @QuilliamOrg ‘s report on #groominggangs & the claim that 84% of “grooming gang offenders” are Asian. An evidence-based critique. 1/
It ignores well-known biases in crime data, such as whether victims disclose (‘self-selection bias’), whether reports are investigated/prosecuted (‘institutional bias’) & whether convictions make the news (‘media bias’) 2/
If using news sources, it's a big mistake to overlook #mediabias – especially as coverage of “grooming gangs” has been very racialised. Crimes involving sex, children & race ‘sell' & stories fitting an established narrative tend to get more coverage. (bit.ly/2q7WLKq) 3/

@TheAdvocateMag @Amanda_Kerri I would, except your activists told me that “PTSD from sexual assault is a slippery slope” when I had concerns about being alone with intact males in vulnerable female spaces. Oh- and when TRAs started shaming and harassing Ls + Gs for their exclusive homosexuality. #homophobia
@TheAdvocateMag @Amanda_Kerri When TRAs called a woman who suffered from male violence and sexual abuse a “bigot” when she requested a *female* nurse for her cervical exam because she wasn’t comfortable with male hands on her body... #misogyny #MeToo #boundaries
@TheAdvocateMag @Amanda_Kerri ... When TRAs ganged up on *Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie*, celebrated feminist author, for saying “Trans women are trans women,” I thought maybe it’s against my best interests to support any activism that wishes to erase my sex class from having any meaning. #WomanMeansSomething

Well, this is AWFUL & tremendously disappointing.

For decades @HillaryClinton has been an outspoken voice for women & girls.

THIS IS NOT THAT.

There's forgiving your husband for an affair & there's recognizing that affair crossed a line that should NEVER have been crossed.
@HillaryClinton #HillaryClinton shouldn't constantly be asked to account for her husband's actions. That is another layer of #misogyny.

But Hillary is a leader.
She chose to answer.

And her answer was devastatingly wrong.

That answer will become worse than Bill's actual actions.
@HillaryClinton Many women have been Monica, in thrall to a powerful older man.

Many women have been married to men who cheated & who they forgave.

@HillaryClinton had an opportunity to speak to ALL women.

Oh how I wish she had taken it.
