I hear Twitter wants us to watch our language or some such fuckery.

This episode of #Australian TV show Q&A was banned from rebroadcast for reasons including I said “fuck” 10 times & asked “How many rapists must we kill before men stop raping women?”

Fuck civility.

This is where my ideas go to grow. Since my return from South Africa - conclusion of the Feminist Giant World Tour - those notebooks have been whispering “We are waiting for you.” As I rested after 3-month tour, I knew that pile was home to all that I saw & experienced. With time
It has been such a privilege and gift to speak at all the places I’ve been to since September. So many incredible people along the way and rich, wonderful ideas that I brought home. Time to process them.
Earlier this year, I went on a 5-city tour of #Spain for @Capitan_Swing’s Spanish edition of my first book Headscarves and Hymens: Why the Middle East Needs a Sexual Revolution. I went to Córdoba on my 2 days off in the middle of that tour. And I’m still filling the notebooks.

Speaking at @Abantu_ in South Africa was last leg in 2019 of #FeministGiant World Tour. It was a privilege & thrill to start it in #Sarajevo with #Bosnia’s first Pride and end it in #Soweto with #AbantuBookFest. Revolution in Sarajevo to revolution in Soweto. It’s been an honour!
Along the way,speaking at Pitchwise in #Sarajevo, @strandbookstore in #NYC, @RMWAdam in #Amsterdam, @McrLitFest in #Manchester, @akefestival in #Lagos, @wcfbook in #Chicago, also in #Brooklyn, #Ottawa, #Sydney, #Melbourne & turning #Australia upside down via TV. It’s been a ride!
So many incredible audiences & new friends along the way. Many thanks to all who came to hear me speak. Many thanks for the love and the gifts. So many powerful experiences. I’ve returned home full. Time now to reflect and then write about these three months. #FeministGiant

Relieved I was able to fly on Tuesday to be with my brother and his family for the holiday. This weather! Parents and sister and her husband drive to be with us tonight. It’s been a while and I’m grateful for this family reunion.
And after this short break with my family, I will see you next week #Soweto for @Abantu_! I am so excited! #abantubookfest
