Why is it okay to force something like this on someone? Why does anyone hear this and think "Well, you got yourself into that situation, sucks to suck..." and yet if a person smokes all their life and develops lung cancer because of it, they aren't told "Well, you have to deal
with those symptoms, cause you did it to yourself?" Because the POTENTIAL for human life is there? Because something that cannot exist outside a woman's body is there?

"we just want to be treated equally"

This is the shit you abandoned lesbians to @stonewalluk.

I have an inbox full of younger lesbians TOO SCARED to speak out who stumbled across my pinned tweet & messaged me because they didn't know what to do. 1/
I didn't message older lesbians when I was their age. They were - well, old. And I was too busy either self loathing, or then being a scene queen finally getting thrown out of bars for too much drink, being too wild, or chasing my pals who did the same. 2/
I was too busy with my mates, too busy with women, too busy travelling, too busy being daft - which is what being in your twenties is about. Being daft, in amongst all the serious boring shit. It's about being able to embrace/find out who you are. 3/

Yes #SmashBrahmanicalPatriarchy and every other kind of patriarchy, misogyny & #sexism regardless of the caste, class, race or religion that habits it. And they all do. But this poster #JackDorsey held was interesting for a number of reasons which I will discuss in this thread.
2/ Firstly, the picture on this poster of a #Dalit woman, reinforces upper-caste, discriminatory, caste stereotypes that holds that the lower caste are dark skinned with Afroid hair & facial features. We all know this untrue. There is no way you can identify caste by color!
3/ In fact it is this kind of stereotype about what Dalit women look like and do, which Jack's poster reinforces, that Dalit women in India have been fighting. #jackinindia

THREAD (PART 3 of 4): Why you shouldn’t trust @QuilliamOrg ‘s report on #groominggangs & the claim that 84% of “grooming gang offenders” are Asian. An evidence-based critique. 1/
It ignores well-known biases in crime data, such as whether victims disclose (‘self-selection bias’), whether reports are investigated/prosecuted (‘institutional bias’) & whether convictions make the news (‘media bias’) 2/
If using news sources, it's a big mistake to overlook #mediabias – especially as coverage of “grooming gangs” has been very racialised. Crimes involving sex, children & race ‘sell' & stories fitting an established narrative tend to get more coverage. (bit.ly/2q7WLKq) 3/

Marzieh Ebrahimi #AcidAttack victim #Iran .
This is a tiny example for you to know why I am trying to overthrow the mullahs.
Is not that enough for #IranRegimeChange
Marzieh Ebrahimi #AcidAttack victim #Iran .
You can be an echo of the Iranian people، help spread the word 2 know what happens in Iran.please.
#Iran: As long as the mullahs' are in power #humanrights and #womensrights are not going to be upheld in Iran.
As the Iranian regime suffers from instability and is beset by social protests and discontent, it is essential that we support the Iranian pp & #Iranprotesters!

We must demand @SenateDems, @SenSchumer use #NoQuorum to delay #SCOTUS confirm. hearings.
Why?
> @WhiteHouse is witholding 100K pages on Kavanaugh's time in Bush WH. What are they hiding?
> New guilty plea in #Mueller probe 8/31. We must block confirmation b4 probe is complete.
How to fight this...
1. Call AND write yr senators every day, whether Republicans or Dems. Ask others to do the same. Demand there be no confirmation hearings before we see where the criminal probe of @realdonaldtrump leads.

call 202-224-3121 or text resist to 50409 - it's easy
2. Write a letter to the editor of your local newspaper voicing your opposition to Kavanaugh and explain your reasons why,
incl the new information about indictments in the ongoing criminal probe
AND
the failure to release pertinent Kavanaugh files

While we wait for #HELSINKI2018 to finish, here's a couple of remarks inspired by the #TrumpPutin meeting.
1. Finland is not a neutral country. We chose our side when we joined European Union in 1995. Finland chose to be on the side of #humanrights, #democracy, #ruleoflaw and multilateral world order. Finnish foreign policy is based on promoting and defending these values.
2. Women's rights are human rights. We believe the world would be a better place for everyone if #WomensRights and girls' rights would be recognised and respected all around the world.

Time to talk about women's reproductive health and dispel a few myths. I'm not one for long threads, so bear with me here. I have a lot of thoughts on this.

The main thing I think gets lost in partisan rhetoric is that we ALL want there to be fewer abortions. But how?
#RoeVWade
2) Let's start with a universal truth.

🔥Making abortions illegal does not make them less common.🔥

Ever.

#LegalSafeRare

dailykos.com/stories/2018/3… Abortion rates are not lower in places where it is illegal.
3)
Just in case you thought this was an American phenomena.

It's not.

Other countries have learned the hard way that punitive measures don't work.
#RoevWade

economist.com/international/… Abortion is as common in countries where it is illegal as it is where it is legal.

Opinion | What the Supreme Court battle suggests about culture wars - by Jennifer Ruben
wapo.st/2lOT4aa
#Women #WomensRights #Democrats #progressives #liberals #UniteBlue #BlueWave
"[] the debate surrounding the nomination has reminded us the degree to which social conservatives have lost on key cultural issues. The only way they reverse those defeats is by guaranteeing a Supreme Court majority at odds with the sentiments of voters."
"That creates a unique problem for Republicans, and an unexpected opportunity for Democrats."


Please read in full. Thanks.

How gender identity politics is endangering #WomensRights masquerading under the guise of “progressivism”- or in other words, as I said to this @notokyriarchy fatherfucker, an #MRA’s dream come true
- (thread)
I shouldn’t have to explain the realities of sex-based oppression in 2018! #Female is a biological sex. #Gender is the roles and norms that are imposed on those with female bodies to subjugate them to males for free sexual, domestic, and reproductive labor.
No matter how many genders a given culture had or recognized, somehow, the half of the group with a cock and balls (males) knew which other half of the group to forcibly impregnate (“#NonMen”, according to some). 🤔🤔🤔
