I’m about to board to start my journey home. #Australia it has been an intense and wonderful week of seeing good friends, making new ones, speaking at @UNSWCentreIdeas #unswideas, @wheelercentre #broadside2019, and appearing on #qanda. I stand by everything I said.
It is fucking ridiculous that the ABC has pulled the show from repeat views & that the government is involved via a ministerial statement & parliament inquiry. Such censorship & govt interference are dangerous & sinister esp in light of raids against the media in #Australia.
It is instructive that outrage over daily and actual violence against women and gender diverse people does not warrant such swift investigations or govt action. Instead, asking “How many rapists must we kill until men stop raping us?” terrifies white men into action.

On Saturday night, I said fuck the patriarchy in sequins in #Sydney at #UNSWideas via @UNSWCentreIdeas at @Carriageworks. The youngest people in the audience were 10yo & 12yo sisters brought by their dad to hear me talk #7necessarysins. I signed a book for them.
There were also at least three queer Muslim women. As I was taking a picture with one woman and her daughter, the mother pointed to her daughter and proudly said “She’s an 18yo Muslim who just came out to her parents.” Her dad was taking pictures of us. #unswideas #Sydney
There was an Egyptian-Australian man who asked me to sign my book for his daughter. An Egyptian-Australian woman who brought her daughter. Another Egyptian-Australian woman who asked me to sign books for her son and daughters. Lots of love from fellow Egyptians! #unswideas
