The idea that we need to seek our partner's permission to do things that are within our own domain is rooted in the belief that possession equals love.
#openrelating #autonomy #agency
How do you define your autonomy and agency within your relationship?
What do you include in your domain?
What are things that you know you have a right to? That you are solely responsible for?
Do you need permission to see friends? go to the gym? buy yourself an outfit?
It is no different with dating other people.
It only feels different because of shame and guilt that we were indoctrinated with.

Appalling bit of subediting(?) but the article itself lays out both the history and US context of #RoeVsWade and the consequences of overturning it with rather more nuance:

thetimes.co.uk/article/the-ti… The Times view on US abortion law and overturning Roe v Wade
The "right approach" the writer appears to support 👇 is the codification of the #RightToChoose into federal #law - which should have happened decades ago. The major issue being the parlous state of US politics... What it should also do is push the issue to the top of the p
For the avoidance of doubt, I absolutely support women's #RightToChoose - it is not for ANY authority to tell people what they can or can't do with their bodies. Anger is justified, but not enough; this is an issue around which people must #mobilise and begin taking back #agency.

Writing an intellectual history of gender.

1970s feminists were such Marxists! Following Engels, they theorised patriarchy as men’s #expropriation of female labour

Ironically, few recognised female #agency! Brides competing for wealthy grooms w guarantees of paternal certainty!
Ironic, I think, that all these feminists thought that patriarchy was something done to women.

For Engels, men overthrew primitive matriarchies. Delphy, Hartmann & Walby emphasised men’s exploitation of female labour.

Not open to the possibility of women selecting patriarchy!
You can understand why there was such backlash from working class & non-western scholars!

1) by conceptualising women as a class they ignored huge differences between women

2) by focusing on labor expropriation they neglect the MAJOR cross-cultural difference: female seclusion

We're considering licensing our @nextjs @sanity_io @tailwindcss @typescript engine to other businesses.

Web devs and agencies, would you ever consider using a licensed website engine?

Not too dissimilar to what @divjoy does!

Start projects with the hard stuff done already.
The engine has a cli to quickly build pages, modules, dialogs etc.

We scaffold the whole process from frontend module to Sanity data model and storybook demo.

Our pages are all modular so adding a new module to the library makes it available across the CMS for all pages.
Pages are linked up and routed, they are infinitely nestable and a sitemap is auto generated as you go.

Pages are rebuilt by next without any manual deployments.

All pages have live preview by default.

Buttons are setup to internally link to any pages by name, so no 404s.

Bitcoin: A Natural Transistor for Computing Universal Value

TE^(X-ME)=-IE

Given #bitcoin's terminal monetary #entropy (ME) is zero and the network rate of adaptation (x) is greater than zero: Image
The Bitcoin network is a lossless dynamic #flow algorithm for computing infinitely reduced informational #uncertainty (-IE). Bitcoin is capable of switching and drawing infinite power into cryptographic signs through the power inequality created by its terminal locality of 0,0.
This infinite gain function generates a systemic power inequality, whereby the reduced informational uncertainty demands increased power flow through the network. This is a positive feedback function in action.

I asked for 150 likes and 50 retweets. You guys gave me 286 likes and 77 retweets. Let me blow your mind on how easy it actually is to run a Google Ads agency that brings the most important thing in the agency business - results for your clients.

THREAD 🧵 (1/19)
In order to run a Google Ads #agency we need a few things:

- A niche
- A vertical
- An acquisition strategy
- Knowing how to set up a #GoogleAds campaign for your client which brings results sustainably.

Since I want to make this thread as bulletproof as possible, let me give you a foolproof way on how to make this work for you - even WITHOUT any previous knowledge.

Judith Heumann a lifelong #advocate for rights of disabled people — one of the most influential voices in the disability rights movement said — "Independent living is not doing things by yourself. It is being in #charge of how things are done."

#UserLed #PeerLeaders #HomeAgain
This quote describes the #essence behind Home Again as an approach.
During the course of time the innovation and its #ethos has been shaped, directed and scaled-up by marginalised folks with psychosocial disabilities allowing many others like them to frame their #unique pathways and aspirations to well-being with #agency and #autonomy.

Dear #MarketingTwitter Colleagues,

The data-driven argument for continued growth in #digital activity and online behavior is flimsy and needs to be scrutinized. (👀@eMarketer & @Merkle)

Let us tell you why:
At the @Merkle #DigitalMarketing event today, we posed this question:

How probable is a reversal in digital activity totals in 2021 Q3&4? How confident can we be in projections for digital behavior in the post-pandemic period if data is based exceptional pandemic-era behavior?
Appreciate @Merkle VP Ryan Gibson’s bottom-line answer:

Below is an exchange I had yesterday w/ an #adoption #agency. It's nothing out of the ordinary--in fact, it's quite typical, sadly. But I want you to see it. REALLY see it. THINK about it. 1/ Image
If you were to ask me what makes a successful adoption, I'd have answered, "an adoption that doesn't have to happen." Because I'd much rather see resources go to helping scared, vulnerable women facing an unplanned pregnancy keep their families together. 2/
Family preservation should always be goal #1. Most women don't even need much help. I'd rather see the privileged actually HELPING the marginalized instead of simply helping themselves to their children. Why? Because in most cases, that's what most benefits BABY. 3/

1) I lose track of some things I’ve written about so I’ve compiled this #thread of threads. For context
I’m a 60 year old #ActuallyAutistic woman in the U.K. only recognised as being #autistic at 58. This is a purely personal perspective on
#autism
#Neurodiversity
#AutisticJoy
2) A year on from my #autism diagnosis I wrote this thread, with reflections on the process of being assessed as #ActuallyAutistic very late in life.

3) My (autistic) election experience (I keep trying to stay away from politics but failing. It matters far too much).

The podcast @NewBooksAfroAm is a great podcast. Today I learned about a new book, "The Smell of Slavery: #Olfactory #Racism and the Atlantic World," by Andrew Kettler, a new book from #CambridgeUniversityPress.
newbooksnetwork.com/andrew-kettler… /1
"Western European defined the #African subject as a scented object, appropriated as filthy to create levels of ownership through discourse that marked African peoples as unable to access spaces of Western modernity." #whitesupremacy
cambridge.org/us/academic/su… /2
African Americans used smell as #resistance during the centuries of their being held as property in the United States: for instance, putting cayenne on their feet so that dogs could not track them when they set out to claim their freedom./3

Grateful to learn from @DrDorindaCA @soutomanning @ilana_horn Manka Varghese & Jamy Stillman in the #DivKAntiracist seminar on "Centering Justice and Anti-Racism in Teacher Education"
So appreciative of the grounding in radical love and Black/ WOC feminisms during this #DivKAntiracist by both @DrDorindaCA & @soutomanning as we look towards a racially just world that does not yet exist.
Also loving the focus on #teacheridentity #agency & #advocacy as central to the work of anti-racist teacher education -- considering intersections of race, language, experiences, subjectivities w/in contexts of education #DivKAntiracist

"The core idea is a provocation: what if some epistemically irrational #beliefs have a role to play in securing active engagement with our surrounding physical and social environment, and can help restore such an engagement after a critical disruption?" #EpistInnocence2020 /2
"We should make room for the possibility that the reporting of distorted #memory beliefs is for the person with #Alzheimer’s disease a means to averting a breakdown in epistemic functionality at a critical time." #EpistInnocence2020 /3
