Australian sex buyers are having a normal one, casually discussing the mass sexual exploitation of Asian women and poor foreign students, as well as how to get away with raping children. All on legal websites. But hey, "customers" like any other - right? internationalsexguide.nl/forum/showthre…
Also, sex buyers looooove what the #sexwork movement is doing. If they're loving you, you're not in the business of putting power into the hands of the seller. You can bet on that. Deregulation which is the current trend down under mostly benefits buyers & pimps and they know it.
Amazing that being pro #prostitution is cast as the anti-racist position when sex buyers are out there talking like this 👇 Women are not cuisines. And, duh, sex buyers know the women wouldn't touch them if they didn't desperately need money. Sex buying is classist violence too.

Self-Righteous SADISTIC ORIENTALIST IMPERIALISTS propagandists have been plastering all manner of fake outrage & concerns for the people of Afghanistan. One can't help but wonder where was such outrage & concern for the last 20 years. Image
Never thought the Daily Hate filth would be shocked to see Muslims being killed or are they just shocked the video got out into the public?

I'm not a lawyer. I didn't attend law school. I'm the biggest skeptic of the #RuleOfLaw that I know.

Here's my thread of highlights (excerpts & passages) from #SupremeMyths: Why The Supreme Court Is Not A Court & Its Justices Are Not Judges by @espinsegall + my comments.
Preface | “It’s no great secret that the Supreme Court’s Constitutional Law decisions reflect the personal values of the Justices…that politics & personality affect the Court’s decisions is only the beginning of the story.”

#SCOTUS produces case law, hence, it's a legislature.
Prologue xiii | “If changing judges changes law, it is not even clear what law is.” ~ Judge Richard Posner

A law means whatever the hell the writers say it means or doesn't mean, based on definition of words & syntax. Writing laws is an art form, it's not mathematics.

2| There's probably not a single person on the planet who hasn't heard the earth shattering news:
Ben & Jerry's will no longer sell ice cream to Israelis living in occupied #Palestinian land.
3| Reminder: Transferring your civilian population to a territory your army is occupying "Attempts to alter the demographic composition of an occupied territory" and is "unlawful and engages State responsibility and criminal responsibility of individuals."

On Friday June 4, 2021 I attended a meeting with Secretary of State Blinken. The purpose of the meeting was to talk all things #Palestine
#SheikJarrah #Silwan #Jerusalem #Gaza #EqualityforAll #OneLove
Full thread in 1 convenient viewing location here: maysoon.com/mz-goes-to-was…
I attended as an individual. I am not affiliated with any PAC or organization. I obviously do not speak for or represent the #Palestinian people. There’s like 7 million of us at least, and like 2 million of #Palestinians stuffed in #Gaza alone.
To the #Palestinian Americans who boycotted this meeting after the #Biden Administration handed Israel $735 million dollars in weaponry following the merciless attacks on Palestinians locked in Gaza.

Riot or Rebellion? The Women's Market Rebellion of 1929.

"In Nigeria there occurred what colonial historians have called the Aba Women’s riots of 1929, but it should be termed the Aba Women’s rebellion.
This was touched off by the imposition of direct taxation and the introduction of new local courts and especially of warrant chiefs." [A. Adu Boahen, African Perspectives on Colonialism (Baltimore, 1987), p. 79.
Here is one account of this rebellion by a person who called the episode a riot in her 1937 book, Native Administration in Nigeria (London, 1937).

Self-determination or #Ethiopia's Decimation? [Thread]:

An Austrian Nazi named Baron Roman Prochazka wrote a book called "Abyssinia: The Powder Barrel" (1935) before Fascist Italy's invasion of Ethiopia.

[Available for Free via @JSTOR & @tsehai: jstor.org/stable/26586238]

[1/8] Image
➡️ Prochazka frames Emperor Haile Selassie I & the Ethiopian empire as a threat to the colonial powers through collusion w/ Japan.

➡️ He proposes tribalization of #Ethiopia & pioneers the term "self-determination" in the Ethiopian context to weaken & fragment the country.

[2/8] ImageImage
➡️ He undermines the "unitary state" & names denominations: "Abyssinians proper (occupying the central part of the country), the Gallas, the Gojjams, & the Kushites of Tigré".

➡️ Colonial rule is proposed as desired to liberate people from "Tyranny of the #Amhara".

We have to understand that white neolibs are not stupid—they are willfully ignorant.
Their solidarity is merely performative, just as it is with #BlackLivesMatter; to educate themselves on the actual history of #PuertoRican politics is not worth possibly losing two Dem senators.
They don’t actually care about the situations they make their ignorant comments on, outside of how black and brown suffering can serve as a tool to benefit white agendas—Again, simply look to #BlackLivesMatter and all of last year’s performative #activism.
There is a strong irony that these faux-progressive white neolibs (and their token black and Latino stooges) amplify their performative beliefs in their bios, hashtags and feeds but their activism stops at actually taking action. They decide to preserve their whiteness instead.

Thread on what #sexbuyers say about Asian women in the legal German sex industry. If we leave out the #sextrade from our critique of #racism, we will never dismantle it. #StopAsianHate. TW: Racism, misogyny, violence against women. (All images are stock photos) Image

„I find fully shaven women quite boring, so I’m practically only bedding Asians at this point. Amongst the Asians, you find the highest number of all-natural pussies.

Thread.

India Farmers Protests Goes Vogue.

Celebrities, influencers – & British Vogue - suddenly interested in #FarmersProtests that began in Nov. Despite MASSIVE resistance, the protests have been largely ignored by Western influencers/NGOs, etc. So why now? Let's explore.
Twitter (tool of empire) promoted the #celebrity endorsement of Rihanna/Greta accounts – while it simultaneously banned/censored on the ground Indian farmers/activists. While highlighting Western #influencers, Twitter had deleted approx. 250 protest/alt media accounts in #India.
Rihanna/Thunberg accounts share CNN article which references Access Now, "an advocacy group which tracks internet freedom." In reality, Access began as an arm of Avaaz (Purpose), to destabilize #Iran. Another instrument of #empire.

More on Access Now:

2/🌏#Earth is surrounded by a constellation of tens of thousands of #satellites in orbit, but also of billions of #spacejunk of more or less large size, fragments coming from rockets or satellites, travelling at a very high speed: important risks of #collision.
3/💥#Kessler syndrome: we are rapidly moving towards a tipping point where the volume of space debris in low orbit is such that collisions are frequent, generate other debris and exponentially increase the probability of collisions.
