“We are deeply disturbed by the 20-yr track record that places Judge Alito on the far right of the judicial spectrum, esp when it comes to women’s & #civilrights. If #SamuelAlito is confirmed…many of our fundamental rights will be at great risk, & could well be lost entirely.”⬇️
2/Prophetic: “Dear Senator, NOW is strongly opposed to the elevation of Judge #SamuelAlito to the #SupremeCourt of the United States, and with every passing day, more information appears that re-confirms our opposition. We urge you to review his record, writings…

1)On April 19,2021 faculty in the College of Arts and Sciences @LinfieldUniv pass a VONC against BOT Chair Dave Baca and Miles Davis. On April 20, the entire campus received an email that @SalemNAACP will investigate Linfield for racial amicus.@pollackpelzner @injeffinitely62 ImageImage
2)On April 21, 6 professors receive invitations (from the College of Arts and Sciences) to have a conversation with @SalemNAACP. These six professors have all been vocal in either social media or media about #InstitutionalBetrayals faced by students & faculty at @LinfieldUniv ImageImageImage
3)These 6 profs are disturbed by the lack of transparency& intent behind them being interviewed. They view being targeted &retaliated for speaking up to media about lack of accountability about sexual assault, anti-Semitism, harassment and the Prez and BoT chairs abuse of power.

This 2019 article, written a year before the ethnofascist #TPLF launched war on #Ethiopia, exposes the rampant #rape &sexual violence that #women of #Tigray suffered from the rapist TPLF gang. The defeated criminal TPLF "men" are continuing their rape now!…
2) In this video clip from 2018 brodacast of #Tigray's DW-TV, a #Tigrayan woman recounts the horrible mysogynistic culture in Tigray under #TPLF, where #rape & sexual violence against Tigray's #women is a commonplace occurence, & 60% of Tigrayan womem are victims of rape.
3) #Tigrayan feminist @meazaG_, speaking to #TigrayMediaHouse in 2019, over a year before the war, explained the horrific level of #rape in #Tigray's society. She said men regularly kick & oppress women every night.Tigray ppl were victims of #TPLF. #TPLFcrimes

I dated @hackpad (acquired by @Dropbox 2015) co-founder Alex Graveley @orph in 2019.

Things started off well, but after about 2 months he became intensely emotionally abuse and increasingly sexually abusive. These are messages he sent me. #abuse #dropbox #MeToo #Domesticviolence ImageImageImageImage
Alex's "best friend" @natfriedman (CEO of @github) knows about the situation and thinks it doesn't matter.
Alex is also an @ycombinator alumni.

Ok few points to be made here on best practice #media reporting on #sexualviolence. 1) When you bring up age/age gaps when those concerned arent underage, you should explain factors relating to power & control. Age gap (when they aren’t underage) isnt an issue in of itself #nzpol
2) Sending a sexual image to a person that is not your partner, wife, husband etc is not a crime. Sending a NON-consensual sexual image IS. Focus on the latter please. Don’t even mention partners, it’s just irrelevant moralising #nzpol #media #sexting #sexualviolence
3) Avoid and confront moralising (assumptions we make about who is & isnt a good victim, what rships should & shouldn’t look like) as it contributes to #rapeculture. It can play into victim blaming narratives, is heteronormative & extremely unhelpful #media #nzpol #sexualviolence

It appears @Pornhub has quietly removed their channel “Black Patrol” after we exposed them just last week.

This channel featured videos of police officers targeting black men.
#BlackLivesMatter #blacklivesmatteraustralia #racism #pornharms ImageImage
How was this ever allowed on @Pornhub?

Videos from “Black Patrol” are still there.

Men are masturbating to parodies of police brutality against black men. Where is the outrage?
#blacklivesmatteraustralia Image
It looks like “African F**k Tour” has also disappeared from @Pornhub after we exposed them.

These are channels that were on #Pornhub for years. Pornhub will always host #racism

THREAD on #SexualViolence:

A woman does not need to fight back or resist in order to prove that she did not consent to unwanted sex. (Canadian sexual assault law does not require proof of resistance to demonstrate a lack of consent.) Nevertheless, in popular imagination
women are often expected to resist in order to prove that they really were “real” victims of sexual assault. This is one of the enduring #RapeMyths, that a “true” victim of sexual assault will fight back or scream and yell, and if she didn’t she must have consented to sex.
This mistaken idea simply fails to understand typical responses to sexual threat, coercion, intrusion and/or fear. Too often, sexual assault victims are asked, “Why didn’t you just fight back, or scream, or struggle, or run away?”

@phatpiano @RealSaavedra "Strip clubs set up a social environment that “fosters male privilege and dominance . . . It’s not just “harmless fun” but a system that legitimizes the larger infrastructures of sexual exploitation and stereotypes oppressing women.” 2)

#HEUNI_Tweetsday Weekly thread on Wednesdays. This month we'll reveal you the key findings from our latest project done w/@SOLWODI, @CIRRIFUGIATI, @JRSizbjeglice, @ENoMW and supported by @EU_Justice
Simple rules: 1❤– 1 finding. 1st topic: #GBV, its consequences & risk factors.
@SOLWODI @CIRRIFUGIATI @JRSizbjeglice @ENoMW @EU_Justice So what are we actually looking into when talking about #GBV against women? Is there any definition? And where to find it? Check out #IstanbulConvention… #VAW #HumanRights #ViolenceAgainstWomen
@SOLWODI @CIRRIFUGIATI @JRSizbjeglice @ENoMW @EU_Justice #Refugee women have different backgrounds including different personal qualities, family situations, levels of education and professions. Refugee women do not form a homogenous group, and they definitely should not be seen as uninformed #victims.

Hi everyone! This is @sohni_c for @Smashboard_. One of the things I want to discuss today is how #sexualharassment and #sexualassault cases are reported in the media. The first issue is the tedious sensationalisation of these cases 1/n
Resulting in the focus remaining on the victim rather than the perpetrator. Hence, adding to stigma, shaming and victim-blaming of the women who face harassment and assault. Also, these attitudes result in reinforcing the #rapeculture where the victim is held at scrutiny. 2/n
Moreover, insensitive and sensational reportage serves to titillate and tease the erotic imagination of abuse, rape and violence. The focus shifts from the violation of the victim to the patriarchal fixation on women's bodies and their sexual freedom. 3/n

Couple of things, @sullydish...
Firstly, nice try but women will not be silent anymore, & you don’t get to tell us to shut up. Secondly, I believe @Lollardfish has already addressed this:

#TimesUp #MeToo #GTFO
Seriously, the fucking audacity of some ppl is astonishing. They never stop trying to silence survivors.

It’s incredible. The number of men accused is small compared to their victims. The number of men accused is small compared to how many men there are in Hollywood & DC.
I’m so done with this shit. Allow me to show y’all some shocking -yet not at all shocking to many of us- information.

*Trigger Warning*
