I encourage concerned @CuyahogaCounty residents to attend Tuesday’s @CuyahogaCouncil meeting & make a public comment at the beginning of the meeting. It starts at 5 pm at the County admin HQ at the 4th floor. You have 3 minutes to speak. #ARPA #RapeCrisis @clevelandrcc
I literally got a tension headache when I read this story. It was so well written I assumed @njKaitlinDurbin wrote it. But it was written by @clevelanddotcom’s new Stimulus Watch reporter @LucasDaprile.
As a #Parma resident, I’m surprised & embarrassed @ParmaMayor Tim DeGeeter, Parma City Council President Sean @BrennanForParma & @CuyahogaCouncil member Scott Tuma thought rebuilding the city’s golf course club house was a good use of #ARPA funds because they are good leaders.

Day 85 of #PutinsWar

#Ukraine has put up remarkable resistance; even in #Luhansk they continue to frustrate #Russia despite a smaller army + fewer weapons.

The latter is changing with help of allies. Putin's running out of time to complete the "operation"

Here's Thursday's 🧵
More on this news from last night:

Russia is saying that Deputy commander of the Azov regiment, Svyatoslav Palamar was among those to "surrender"

Known as "Kalina" he is the best English speaker of the leaders and fronted the recent press conference.

#Russia has just published another video of what it's calling #Azovstal prisoners of war. The Geneva Convention forbids ID, so I've taken a few screenshots of the scenes.

Presumably this is from last night's laying down of arms by the Ukrainians.

Today the European Commission will publish a proposal for a new law which will make the interception, analysis and monitoring of *ALL* digital communications (messengers, forums, direct messages etc.) mandatory.

#privacy #humanrights #chatcontrol #surveillance #dignity #csam
Let me be clear - this is ILLEGAL under EU Treaties and Case Law under the principles of proportionality and necessity. This new law will turn the EU into a surveillance state.

#privacy #humanrights #chatcontrol #surveillance #dignity #csam #childsexualabuse
500 million citizens will be subjected to complete blanket surveillance - the impact on privacy will be profound. Everything we have fought for since 1949 - our values, our principles, our democracy and our human rights, will be undone with the scratch of a pen.

Who is Responsible??
An old African proverb says it takes a village to raise a child.

Training children is partnership between the Parents. the School and the society they live in.
The report card that just came out now is the results of parents and the school. My conjecture is that something has messed up these kids at home way before school. School has become a conducive environment for enabling the mixing of bad eggs and blank eggs.
Homes and schools ought to be a controlled environment, where children are shielded from some of the things that society offers. Society sings lewd songs with reckless abandon; the media is bursting with inappropriate age sensitive information that is uncensored.

𝗖𝗵𝗿𝗶𝘀𝗹𝗮𝗻𝗱, 𝗥𝗮𝗽𝗲 𝗼𝗿 𝗦𝗲𝘅, 𝗧𝗿𝘂𝘁𝗵 𝗼𝗿 𝗗𝗮𝗿𝗲! 𝗣𝗮𝗿𝘁 𝟭 Every day, a new crisis trends. Some of us can’t keep up.
I feel it’s important I comment about this issue for a few reasons:
1.Why I took
my kids out of Chrisland,
2.Primary school children having sex which isn’t new, is now a school’s fault?
3.Who is responsible?

When people take to social media condemning schools and parents, it’s good to look inwards, and take lessons to prevent what can happen 𝐭𝐨 𝐲𝐨𝐮!
Why did I take my children from Chrisland?

I took my kids out of Chrisland about 10yrs ago, as you can guess they are way past that level now. I saw a few signs, added them together and decided to remove them.

#NZ This is a long thread on the issue of harassment & threats made against #WomenInLeadership, primarily #WomenInPolitics.

⬇️ Reviews incidents over time, highlights the danger & escalation of #misogyny & the real life consequences on the personal & our democratic institutions.
This thread is being woven, the week Michael Cruickshank was sentenced to jail in #NZ for threatening to blow our #WomanPrimeMinister’s head off & to “..wipe you off this f---planet”- Also arrested this week Richard Sivell who has allegedly been posting threatening messages.
Here you can take a look at #OnlineAbuse ~ ⬇️ is a really useful article by @shesource & @WMCLive that names online hostile behaviour, how it is that #Women are targeted, & explains why “online harassment exists on a continuum with offline violence”

CN #Transfeindlichkeit #TERFs #GenderCriticalCult

Am Mittwoch (23.3.22) war ich in einem TERF Space zum Selbstbestimmungsgesetz. Er plobbte in meinem Feed auf, und ich ging nichtsahnend hinein, sah auf einen Blick, dass das nicht meine Bubble war und - blieb.

Ein Bericht.

Ich habe nur eine kurze Weile zugehört, bevor ich einen Sprechwunsch anmeldete.

Der Space wollte "über das Selbstbestimmungsgesetz aufklären" und hat dabei soviele Falschbehauptungen gemacht, dass ich nicht zuhören konnte.

CN #Transfeindlichkeit #TERFs #GenderCriticalCult

Tatsächlich wurde ich als Sprechendes zugelassen, aber da einer der Hosts immer aufrief, wer sprechen durfte, schwieg ich noch eine ganze Weile (Geduldsprobe!) und hörte zu.

Die Kurzfassung: Lügen, Hass und Angst schüren.

Louisa Westropp (born 1858), following a marriage characterised by constant domestic violence, sued her husband for divorce on the grounds of cruelty. Before Irish independence, cruelty was, in theory, legal grounds for divorce.....

#IrishWomenInHistory #NollaigNamBan
..... but men were considered to have the right to physically 'chastise' their wives, as women at that time had few rights (including the right to custody of their own children) cruelty was almost never cited in #divorce proceedings.

#IrishWomenInHistory #NollaigNamBan
It was the first time an #Irish #woman sued her husband for divorce on grounds of cruelty, and it set a legal precedent. Terrible as things were for Louisa, they were much worse for women from less wealthy backgrounds.

Do you remember #Janabi? Abir Al Janabi. A 14-year-old #Iraqi girl. In 2006, Janabi's father stopped sending Janabi to school in fear of the #US Army's focus on his daughter. The Army who was establihing "#democracy" and "#human rights" in Iraq. 1/32
Janabi used to stay at home, spending her days of adolescence playing with her younger siblings.
The U.S. military's security checkpoint was located just 200 meters from Janabi's house. One day, a #USsoldier notices Janabi. And Janabi and her family were doomed right then. 2/32
For a few days at first, the #soldiers repeatedly came to Janabi's house in the name of search and made ugly gestures towards her. One day the four #armies decided that today they would be the day to enjoy Jamabai and kill some #Muslims. 3/32

TW: Rape. Sex buyers break women's boundaries all the time by wearing them down till she stops fighting back. It's still #rape. Just because she didn't kick and scream doesnt make it consensual. We still have a lot of education to do as smn on Insta is defending this rapist.
It's still seared into people's minds including this buyer and his defender that silence is consent (even though she clearly said "No!" twice). It's one of countless examples of how women raped by sex buyers know they won't get justice so they resign to the violence inflicted.
This woman speaks little German and is likely an economic refugee. You really think she's just gonna report him to authorities? She's busy trying to make ends meet. She's got no proof of a crime. She recieved money for it. Half of Germany thinks she's a nympho or greedy foreigner

@mike_salter @KaMaZhe I'm writing this as someone who is centre-left: QAnon came in handy for many Dem supporters, because they could you use it to debunk all possible connections of the Dem establishment to organised sex/rape trafficking (see Epstein) as "conspiracy theory".

If I told you these two photos show exactly the same thing, rape by a prince in the same "trafficking" ring what would you say?

On the left Prince Albert of Monaco.

On the right Prince Andrew. ImageImage
The model on the left was very well known. She said she was raped by Prince Albert of Monaco.

The girl on the right is Virginia Giuffre. She said she was raped by Prince Andrew.

Both victims claimed to have been "sex-slaves" in a trafficking ring that included politicians.

Dharmasastras on #Rape

Death penalty

वधे तत्र प्रवर्तेत कार्यातिक्रमणं हि तद्॥ Katyayana Smrti 830
When a man has forcibly had sexual intercourse with a woman, he must be given capital punishment since it is violation of conduct.
A #rape victim should not be looked down upon.

A woman ravished forcibly or fallen into the hands of an enemy should be abandoned. She becomes pure after the menstrual period.

#Pakistan PM #ImranKhan regrets increase in sexual attacks against women+children but links them to women's clothing & vaguely-defined "obscenity."

By this flawed standard, #Muslim-majortiy cities like #Istanbul #Dubai #KualaLumpur should see an outbreak.
Prime Minister #ImranKhan's controversial remarks linking #rape to women's dresses surprised even his ex @Jemima_Khan:

PM #ImranKhan's remarks on rape vs woman's dress resonated internationally, including in the Middle East. This #Egyptian celebrity asked the PM, "Do child victims of rape also wear objectionable clothes?"

Make no mistake, under the cover of #COVID19 this government is profiteering in terms of power. I've been trying to get people to wake up – eg article I wrote in Dec 2020 theguardian.com/commentisfree/…

And the #PoliceCrimeSentencingCourtsBill coming before #Parliament tomorrow/Tues, we need a social media storm before we end up with a police state where our silence results in our civil liberties eroded in ways that it will be almost impossible to claw back.
