“I’ve seen, again and again, brilliant women treated like garbage by mediocre (at best) male Twitter theologians and, tragically, sometimes actual pastors. Women in conservative circles can usually get away with passively cloaking their disagreement as submissive questions.”🧵
“Instead of stating her position, much less arguing for her position, she may feel pressure to state her position as a question. If she is afraid to object openly, she must bracket all objections with plenty of “with all due respect” and “although I appreciate your perspective”
“phrases. With every objection, she must throw in something that soothes the ego of the Twitter Theology Bro™.  
But if she plainly states her case or even nears any firmness, she receives brutish acting out. If she doesn’t receive flagrant hostility, she’s almost certainly met

"Misogyny" is a trigger word for the far right-controlled Republican party. But the ideology is real, and it can lead to people getting killed.

Bryan Kohberger
George Huguely
Elliot Rodger
Andrew Tate
Donald T****

#RespectWomen is a public health and safety issue.
Evidently, my above use of the term misogyny has triggered a few of them.

They're trying to insinuate that Kohberger was a liberal which, even if true, would have nothing to do with the points made in my tweet. We already know several things about him, and his crimes...
Further, when writing the above list of 5 known and/or confirmed misogynists, some of whom have killed at least one woman, I considered a range of factors that put them on that list.

I want to encourage discussion about misogny and the targeting of women by violent offenders.

1/10 In school, there is one genderwoo-obsessed handmaiden who claims to be a lesbian. (Note that word “claims” - that bit is important.)

2/10 Last week she insisted on asking me about my “transphobic” views. I asked her how she, as a lesbian, could support a cult that seeks to erase both women AND same-sex attraction?

3/10 She told me that TRAs do nothing of the sort. I pointed out that women are being kicked off lesbian dating sites, for saying they won’t date men. Which OF COURSE they won’t. These women are lesbians i.e. exclusively same-SEX attracted females.

Just realised that a man who once put his hand in front of my face and tick tocked around it, seriously saying that my biological clock was ticking - is now the chairman of an organisation that “champions” women and diversity. But of course he is….
“Women are made for having babies. It’s what they do. Why would you want to kick against nature?”
Oh and the more #RespectWomen type hashtags people use, the less likely they are to ACTUALLY respect women. We don’t need a hashtag to see how decent you are 😘

Things I am over - hypocrisy and inconsistency

1) If peaceful #protest on the steps of government buildings is a right, than it also is on a football field #TakeAKnee, in a park, etc

#Thread #equity #rant (1/8)
2) If we ban #guns from some buildings in the interest of security, that means for all people - not just those that aren't white

3) If #BlueLivesMatter, do not risk our brave protectors’ health by protesting near them without #masks

#MichiganProtest (2/8)
4) If you are not wearing #facemasks given your personal #liberty, than why do women not get extended the same for #Reproductiverights

5) If all life is sacred, than why would we sacrifice 2-3% of our population by #ReopenAmerica too quickly?
