Remember when #Republicans #seceded from the #Union to defend the @PeculiarInstitution of #Slavery?

Neither do I.
Remember when #Republicans created the #KKK as an armed force of masked #terrorists to #murder newly #freedslaves and government officials that protected them?

Neither do I.
Remember when #Republicans enacted #apartheid in America through so-called #JimCrow laws?

This thread is for @MidlifeKink as a result of a poll from @thumperMN . Because I've spent a long time in #male #chastity and #orgasm #denial, she wondered if I missed being able to make choices about my own orgasms.
It's complicated. Back when we were dating, I was def more switchy, and just enjoyed some BDSMy kinds of things. Mrs Edge def did not like being restrained, etc., but she did like having the control, so I learned to enjoy that.
Over time, I became disappointed that she really didn't have any interest in doing those fun little things (handcuffs, blindfolds, tie downs, etc.). It was confusing because on the rare occasions, she seemed to enjoy it, but not enough to do it again.

@curiouser_alice Depends. Over usage - Yeah. But it’s quite powerful eg as many parents may realize when they get a call to pick up their kids from the police department for ____.
@curiouser_alice Or spouses when eg some incriminating app is found on a cell phone.
@curiouser_alice Or eg “Trump can’t possibly win.”

In my neighbourhood there was a serial sex predator breaking into women's homes and sexually assaulting them in their own beds. It's bad enough that women routinely have to take more precautions than men to do basic things like go for a walk or a jog. 1/ #sexualassault #crime
I can't describe to you what it's like to be afraid to do something as necessary as falling asleep in your own bed at night. This is what happened to many women in my neighbourhood. 2/ #VAW
At the time this was going on, a lot of women talked to me about their fear, about being afraid in their own homes, being unable to fall asleep or stay asleep in their own beds. There were a lot of exhausted women in my neighbourhood. 3/ #crime #fear

Let’s examine the response of @UKLabour to the @EHRC investigation, the first full investigation of any political party in the UK (i.e. more serious than that of the BNP).

At first sight it looks plausible, if quite unorthodox. Labour is supportive defensive and celebratory. 1/8
This first paragraph however is the cover for the far more sinister content.

If they are implacably opposed to antisemitism, why are they under investigation? And if they are being investigated why put in that statement in the second paragraph?

This is not just legalese… 2/8
If the Party recognized it was possible that it has a problem, remedies can be suggested. To state categorically (para 2) that it does not have a problem, and that it has always acted appropriately, calls the whole investigation and the integrity of the @EHRC into question.

1/ "This research was concerned with image-threatening events faced by evangelical organizations & impression management strategies utilized ... In response to that threat, organizations might choose to prioritize managing their image over managing the problem."

2/ "The three organizations selected on the basis of these criteria include Bob Jones University, Sovereign Grace Ministries, and Mars Hill Church."

@byJimHenderson have you read this?
3/ "As of March 9, 2018, this researcher had collected 143 media reports of pastors of Protestant evangelical churches charged with a crime in the USA during the year 2016 and 144 media reports during the year 2017. (See Appendix A ...)

1/ If u have played the game the way I have, this clip is not that difficult to break down. Notice Wilson’s right skate before or at the initial point of contact. It is leaving the ice intentionally, which means he thrusts his body into an upward direction, which is towards the
2/ head of Reese. If we look at the left skate during the point of contact, Wilson is rising up onto his toe, as if he is trying to jump, hence the reason he ended up sitting on the dasher of his own bench after the hit. It is clear that Reese sees Wilson coming but that has very
3/ little to do with the fact that Wilson clearly makes contact with the head/jaw of Reese, in direct result of jumping and thrusting his body in an upward motion. Bc of this, we have a human being who may get the right diagnosis of a #concussion yet will he receive the treatment

The current dialogue about #DACA affects everyone in the US. How?

#Racism & #scapegoating & affect all minorities.

Deporting #DREAMers & undocumented #immigrants will have very negative impacts to the #economy. That affects everyone else. THREAD 1 #DreamActNow #immigration
The sociological concept of the “other” is important to this discussion. If you haven’t heard of it before, here is a brief overview from othersociologist.com/otherness-reso…. 2 #identity #race #sociology #Science
People in power define social identities as they have the means to control the narrative – news coverage, platforms to broadcast their platforms, & the power to influence law enforcement and legislation. Social identity affects how people perceive themselves and others. 3
