#US2019 where the #SCOTUS gives the minimal access to Louisiana #women's right to #choice that #Democrat governor voted to slam the door on in 2014.

@LouisianaGov John Bel Edwards voted for this law tab.bz/JohnBelEdwards…
California paid $369,000,000 in 2014 to the federal government to support states like these which entrap poor women into unwanted pregnancies. #FreeTheBear from a party and a nation that won't unequivocally give a #woman the #Choice to decide what is best for her body.

I’m a mom, a businesswoman and a state legislator serving South Carolina. At a young age, I was determined to forge my own path through life. And nearly 20 years ago I became the first female graduate of The Citadel after following in my father’s footsteps.

I also have experience starting my own business and in 2017 ran for - and won - a seat in the state legislature, on my own terms.

As women we make a fundamental mistake when we make our identity as women the WHOLE story.

The point of breaking glass ceilings is so that, after they’re broken, it doesn’t matter anymore. The American experiment is built on the premise that if you set a goal, show up on time and work hard, then success is within reach. (3/6)

@McLNeuro @DrAilshire @JMGrohNeuro @sbarolo @hormiga @risss_evans @KKTreseder @SarahEMyhre @batssiki @sbrietz Set up ways to continue dialogue with @NIHDirector & committee–ongoing conversation & input. Action plan before you leave. Also make clear any further delays are unacceptable. Action plans, strong regulations/policies must be instituted immediately. Petition is excellent example.
@McLNeuro @DrAilshire @JMGrohNeuro @sbarolo @hormiga @risss_evans @KKTreseder @SarahEMyhre @batssiki @sbrietz @NIHDirector 1- Many excellent thoughts/suggestions in thread. We thought a list of comments/support/urgency from many sectors may be useful. Concerning that @NIHDirector has not made clear, active efforts to stop #SexualHarassment by @NIH grant holders while @NSF & other orgs have.
@McLNeuro @DrAilshire @JMGrohNeuro @sbarolo @hormiga @risss_evans @KKTreseder @SarahEMyhre @batssiki @sbrietz @NIHDirector @NIH @NSF 2- Why isn’t #SexualHarassment a top #NIH priority. Why the resistance to actively creating strong policies against #SexualHarassment to protect #WomenInMedicine #WomenInScience #WomenInSTEM #WomeninEngineering, even when called out repeatedly by many. What’s the real issue here?

So the @cpsuk are allowing teen girls & women to be sexually tortured on film. I have evidenced this horror on my blog. Proving much is non-consensual/ DV victims/performers who suffer mental health issues/physical harm to breasts /anus/genitalia etc bbc.co.uk/news/technolog… #VAWG
Also, a significant audience of online violent pornography are children and teenagers. #Pornhub hosts thousands of sexually violent videos that have millions of views. Many of these videos are 'home-made' and single males upload their own sexual offences against girls & women

I never thought I'd write about getting an IUD, let alone for @NEJM, but I did. During the Kavanaugh hearings I saw ugly, ugly power pushing down & down but I also looked up to see an immense, glittering kind of strength at every turn. nejm.org/doi/full/10.10…
A huge thank you to some amazing #women in #EM who gave me courage & advice when I was nervous to pursue this. I was worried abt writing on a sensitive topic esp during res interviews @LizSamuels @meganranney @choo_ek @darakass Thank you for making it so much easier to be brave
And thank you to @Jeff__Riddell and @TakuTaira, my mentors who I met at @lacuscdem who picked up the phone and called me immediately when I emailed them for their advice. I'm so grateful to be joining this specialty.

The Wikipedia #1Lib1Ref campaign starts soon! "Your goal today is to add one reference to #Wikipedia! Any citation to a reliable source is a benefit to Wikipedia readers worldwide." Make sure to include the hashtag #1Lib1Ref in your edit summary. 1lib1ref.org
Last year was my first year participating in #1Lib1Ref and I am thoroughly hooked! Trying to make it a regular part of my praxis to add relevant citations to #Wikipedia when I’m doing collection development or answering reference questions.
Last year for #1Lib1Ref I focused on on Eastern European literature, translating and creating Wikipedia pages for literary awards, authors and works where none yet existed in English, adding authority control information and linking to @Wikidata.

06/01/2019 - 78 years ago today, the longest-serving #UnitedStates #President, #Franklin D. #Roosevelt (#FDR) addressed the 77th #Congress with his "#Four #Freedoms" speech with the intent to shift #US #foreign #policy from that of #neutrality to #interventionist.
#FDR promoted the idea that the people of the world, in all nations, shared entitlement to four freedoms: that of the freedom of speech and expression, the freedom of worship, the freedom from want and the freedom from fear.
#FDR is arguably one of the most 'successful' #US Presidents. Some would argue that on the basis of his numerous social policies such as 'the New Deal'. Others, however, would argue that his role during the second world war was more prevalent to his success & everlasting legacy.

Sadly, the covert and slo-mo war against #German women is also being waged by way of encouraging women to ride bicycles amid dangerous road #traffic. Today, the #SüddeutscheZeitung published data according to which in 2018 alone, six premenopausal #women died in #Germany as a ..

2018-01-23: a 10-year old woman in #BrandenburgAnDerHavel

LIBERALS ARE ATTEMPTING TO REVERSE THE CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT!

Think about it!

And who’s leading them?
A woman posts a “risky pic”

-conservative women compliment and applaud her.
-liberal women attack her.

THEY SAY...

*fat
*ugly
*old
*bad mom
*whore
Liberals claim that republicans are racists.

A black supporter steps up and says “I’m a republican”

THEY SAY...

THEY USE MOB MENTALITY TO BULLY MINORITIES OUT OF THINKING FOR THEMSELVES!

Hello, I am Edna Matta. I was born in #Ibague, known as #Colombia’s #CityofMusic. A beautiful place near snow-covered volcanos (Ruiz, Santa Isabel and Tolima), large expanses of paramo forest, lakes and streams where a diverse array of animal and plant species coexist
My story starts with #powerful, #strong #women in my #family. I was the third of 4 children and my mom #firstMentor had to raise us practically alone, since my father had to work in a different city, 20h away by car

#OSHO #hypnosis

The #unconscious #mind is nine times bigger than the #conscious; it has tremendous treasures, all the memories of your past.

Below the unconscious, there is the collective unconscious. One can descend into the collective unconscious also with somebody’s help.
The master of Mystery School will take you slowly towards the unconscious and the collective #unconscious.

In your collective unconscious, you have memories of your #PastLives as animals, as birds.
Below the collective unconscious is the #cosmic #unconscious.

Slowly, slowly one can go deeper and deeper, and the cosmic unconscious has #memories of your being trees, rosebushes, stones.

So, the other thread I was talking about at the beginning of the week and, sadly not about Vagrant Story or Farscape.

One of the questions I see pop-up again and again is why do TE*Fs (note the wildcard placement, there's nothing radical about these #Fuckwits) have such...

hatred for #trans #people?

Well, if we step back a little and change how we look at the patterns of behaviour, and look at those behaviours in a different paradigm, one more associated with personal relationships, TE*F behaviour and attitudes have a depressingly familiar...

@DebbieHayton I agree, Madam. I am following the debate from Italy, which is at the receiving end of #SJW crap. Young people are drinking whatever #YouTube or #Tumblr prophets are telling them from USA. The new Gospel says women do not exist except as a feeling, but also that #Gaymen and
@DebbieHayton #lesbians do not exist, we are a mere social construction. Heterosexual men are again the pivot of everything. Scholars debate about #nonheterosexual people and #nonmen as if this were a very progressive way of speaking. #transsexual is a slur, anyone can be a #transgender and
@DebbieHayton Speak in the name of the t* community, even if they never experienced what dysphoria is. The same with #Intersexual people, everyone is allowed to speak in their name, except them. You are not supposed to be #bisexual anymore because it is so binary. #Sex is a taboo word no-one

Recently, a #tenured #prof at a grp dinner made a #sexist joke. I didn't laugh.

He pointed at me & called me out on it.

"See, I knew SHE wouldn't get it."

I reported it to an #administrator & copied a 1st yr prof also present at dinner. She corroborated my story.

Thread 1/7
Like me, she couldn't say anything during dinner as senior prof collaborated w/ our prog, which he reminded us several times. The administrator I spoke to was sympathetic & concerned, & assured us that senior prof is a well-known a**. We aren't the 1st to run afoul of him. 2/7
Hearing their responses validated my experience greatly.

The 3 of us discussed how junior prof & I would deal w/ future events. One way was to ask senior prof to clarify his "jokes."

Junior prof said this was likely to be the least destructive. Administrator agreed. 3/7

THREAD: After the #TreeOfLifeSynagogue #shooting, the #KrogerShooting before that, and the +14 bombs sent by the #MAGABomber, it's crucial that we call #RightWingTerrorism out for what it is, but we also clearly need to talk about #WhiteSupremacy in the 2018 election.
We celebrate the truly #HISTORIC number of #women and #POC running for office in 2018, but we also refuse to ignore the volume & range of explicit and implicit #racist attacks almost every single candidate of color has faced in this election. That's also #WhiteSupremacy in action
Let's be clear: #POC running for elected office have ALWAYS faced hurdles to victory defined by the strength of #StructuralRacism and our country's long-standing culture of #WhiteSupremacy. But 2018 has taken it to a new level.

So.

Time for something a little different, and an idea I’ve been toying with—a look at how #transphobes try to frame their narrative within a claim that they are only “concerned” about trans people existing.

I think it’s safe to say that every trans person in the...

this the comments and phrases that #transphobes come out with can come across as bizarre, or non-sequiturs, or even occasionally even reasonable. That person, because they have no experience of this, doesn’t see those comments as the attacks they are, and so can’t...

my is my promised THREAD for my new essay: Putting the “Transgender Activists Versus Feminists” Debate to Rest (btw, it's on Medium, so please give it lots of "claps" so that others see it!) medium.com/@juliaserano/p… #transgender #women #feminism #LGBTQ #gender #activism
...I saw some wild claims about my piece yesterday, so I will attempt to clarify here. my first point: there is a long history of feminist debates and discourses regarding trans ppl. Talia Bettcher discusses this in her critique of that Stock piece: dailynous.com/2018/05/30/tab…
...as someone who has played a small part in that history, and who spends much of my time in feminist settings, I can tell you that the "feminist debate" regarding trans people is largely settled, as most contemporary feminist recognize that...
