OK, Twitter. Pour the tea. It’s time to talk about #ToxicMasculinity and the #myth of the #AlphaMale . You ready? I got my tea right here. It’s green tea spiked with whiskey, honey, garlic, mint, and wasabi because it’s going to be that kind of thread. Here we go.
First off, let’s deal with this #AlphaMale nonsense. Take a quick look in the mirror. Are you a wolf, a chimpanzee, a gorilla, or a bonobo? Are you a chicken? Are you a large herd animal, like a horse or a bighorn sheep? No? OK, then you’re probably not an alpha anything.
Alpha males, which distinguish themselves based on physically dominating behaviors DO exist in gorilla and chimpanzee societies. But guess what doesn’t exist in those societies? Higher-order organizational structures such as governments, militaries, or police forces...

This is a thread on the repealed #Ontario health & education curriculum. Let’s start with the most important point. IT IS NOT SEX ED. The curriculum is HEALTH & PHYSICAL EDUCATION. @fordnation uses hot button terms like #SexEd to fire up religious extremists
Before you make any comments regarding the content of the curriculum...read it: …consentcultureorg.files.wordpress.com/2018/06/health…
Since so many critics of the updated curriculum are aghast at the disgusting content to be taught to our innocent lil munchkins starting at the tender age of 5, this thread focuses only on gr 1-3

#Venus has strong associations with bubbles, because they bring joy, pleasure, and excitement, and are frequently used to mark happy occasions.
They are a literal representation of #effervescence, which is a #Venusian feature, and are often paired with #sugar (ruled by Venus), as in #soda, or used in #alcoholic beverages, which reduce social inhibitions and can stir the libidinal instincts.
For those reasons, #Venus is associated with #champagne, mineral water, and #bubbly drinks of all variety. They, along with #greentea, make great Venus #offerings.

Our questions to Justice Srikrishna on the concerns and criticisms since Friday evening on #DataProtection here. Of course, there will be more but this covers what has been discussed so far. Thread 👇
1. You mentioned the premise of the report is to unlock the data economy while keeping data of citizens secure and protected. Basically ensure public good plus protect informational privacy. Was this balance all the more needed for a developing economy like India?
2. While you have defined consent, consent is only one of the grounds for processing of personal data. There is provision that allows processing for reasonable purposes,especially allowing the state to process data. Does this give the govt overarching power?

Arguments that #libraries are beneficial really don't have anything to do with the #consent argument against #taxation, so they are really quite uninteresting, and not at all even an argumentative response to the good professor. That being said, it's important to understand…
#Libraries are terribly underfunded, when they should be a top priority for civic spending. It is not inconsistent to be pro library funding and con taxation, if you argue for a #noncoercive yet still #compulsory financing source, i.e. Just Rent #LVT. Most libraries cannot…
accept donated books, because they simply cannot afford the staff and infrastructure required to preserve and maintain an ever-growing stock of physical texts. #Libraries must therefore concentrate on what items #librarians deem important or popular in their community. …

The #legitimacy of any form of #government is not and cannot be based upon #consent, but upon how well it protects the rights of those who refuse to consent.
When the bullshit is stripped away, #Socialism is #theft, and can never be a moral form of political economy, because it cannot protect the rights of those who refuse to consent to the theft of their earned wealth. Those who do consent are not prevented under any other system…
from engaging in #voluntary #cooperative #ownership of #capital. Therefore, #Socialism is not defined by voluntary participation, but by #coercion, or #theft, a universal #moral harm. #Intent is not #magic. Good intent and good works do not and cannot excuse the theft.

@SurvivorsnetBtn @RASASC_London @survivorstrust @Danvers07943910 @ObjectUK @BrightonSurvivorsNET “In the light of a highly disturbing increase of #transphobia locally & nationally…” IF everything anybody says or does is #transphobia, of course you can say it is rising. Any reputable statistics?
@SurvivorsnetBtn @RASASC_London @survivorstrust @Danvers07943910 @ObjectUK “…so the date @Womans_Place_UK event feels like a concerted effort to make #trans ppl, & particularly #transwomen, feel #intimidated and #invalidated” Is it the position of SN that the sensitivities of #transwomen mean that #democracy should be suspended any time they say so?

Classic example of disasters in not differentiating aadhaar authentication, eKYC, eSign, eMandate. Everything needs only one OTP and no knows what transaction happens in backend. @India_Stack will be happy because all they care is volumes not user interest. #Consent #Fraud
A simple way of fixing this mess, is to not allow signatures by just sharing OTP, but involve some bit of user action and adding friction to make sure signatures can't be made with just OTP. User can send a SMS from registered mobile with SIGN <OTP_SENT_TO_ENTITY> to get SIGNOTP
What this would mean is, while signing is still happening through the same set of APIs, it codifies user action, which reduces frauds like these. eSign still has more issues, but this is rudimentary.

Tweetstorm coming up on the 9 distinguishing points of our thinking on #DataProtection ☔️ @dvararesearch @benichugh @julupani @binduananth 1/n
1. Scope —the law should apply to protect the personal data of all people in India, foreign entities conducting business in India + those outside India processing personal data from india. 2/n
2. Protect all personally identifiable data—do away with the distinction b/w “sensitive personal data” and “personal data”. Protect all personally identifiable data.This means the law will not apply to de-identified data; incentivising de-identification (as techniques evolve) 3/n

Good morning to you all! @saysnidhigoyal and @nidsitis are on their way to Dombivali for a workshop on sexual harassment and consent with hearing and speech impaired women. Join us as tweet some interesting observations from the training. #SexDis
@saysnidhigoyal @nidsitis We have begun with a quick recap of our previous workshop - outlining the topics covered. Including that fact that women have ovaries and get pregnant! The image has our trainer Sunita signing how long is pregnancy and the participants responding with 9 months.
Now discussing menstruation. Many of them are saying they get happy when the period is not coming - aren’t we all! But discussing the need for regular periods and does skipping a period mean pregnancy?

Most men that I know, men who respect women as equals, are shocked when allegations come out about people like #HarveyWeinstein, #BillCosby, #LouisCK. They are in shock when men they know are accused of sexually harassing or assaulting women. THREAD 1 #BelieveWomen #RWU #MeToo
Some men find it very hard to believe that these things are so common, because they would never DO those things. If I were a man and I hadn’t experienced harassment and inappropriate behavior multiple times, I would probably find it difficult to believe. 2 #MeToo #BelieveHer
I decided to share about what I’ve experienced, so that good men who respect women can start to understand that these things happen to women know they know, work with, are related to, and love, every day. Their friends, neighbors, coworkers, relatives. 3 #sexualharassment

Only 2.20 Crore people actually consented to linking PAN-Aadhaar, everyone else was demographically authenticated and seeded by agency. #Consent
Why does Airtel, Jio have 3-4 times transaction volumes of their customer base. Auth failure / non consensual payment 🏦 account opening?
