पित्रा भर्त्रा सुतैर्वापि नेच्छेद्विरहं आत्मनः ।
एषां हि विरहेण स्त्री गर्ह्ये कुर्यादुभे कुले ।।
- मनुस्मृति 5/149

पण्डित चन्द्रमणि विद्यालंकार :
कन्या या स्त्री को चाहिए कि वह पिता, पति व पुत्रों से पृथक् रहने की इच्छा न करे। क्योंकि इन से पृथक् रहने से स्त्री पितृकुल व

पतिकुल, दोनों कुलों को कलङ्कित कर सकती है।

पण्डित राजवीर शास्त्री जी :
कोई भी स्त्री पिता, पति अथवा पुत्रों से अपना बिछोह - अलग रहने की इच्छा न करे क्यों कि इनसे अलग रहने से यह आशंका रहती है कि कभी कोई ऐसी बात न हो जाये जिससे दोनों - पिता तथा पति के कुलों की निन्दा या
बदनामी हो जाये । अभिप्राय यह है कि स्त्री को सर्वदा पुरूष की सहायता अपेक्षित रखनी चाहिए, उसके बिना उसकी असुरक्षा की आशंका बनी रहती है ।

It is time that textbooks & revision websites updated their #feminism sections. This is wrong. Radical Feminism is anti essentialist, it doesn't say that 'men are the enemy' but that patriarchy is the enemy of us all & that we can all change for the better…
"Radical feminists believe that men are the enemy and that marriage and family are the key institutions that allow patriarchy to exist." No. Marriage & the isolated, hetersexist, nuclear family are indeed sites of patriarchal operation & socialisation but not the only ones.
"For radical feminists in order for equality to be achieved patriarchy needs to be overturned. They argue that the family needs to be abolished and a system of gender separatism needs to be instituted for this to happen." Ha, ha, ha!

ਨਿੱਕੇ ਹੁੰਦਿਆਂ ਕੁਝ ਕੁ ਗੱਲਾਂ ਬੜੀਆਂ ਆਮ ਸੁਣਨ ਨੂੰ ਮਿਲਦੀਆਂ ਸੀ। ਜਿਵੇਂ ਕਿ - ਫਲਾਨਿਆਂ ਦੀ ਕੁੜੀਆਂ ਬਹੁਤ ਚੁਸਤ ਨੇ। ਤੇ ਅਸੀਂ ਵੀ ਓਵੇਂ ਹੀ ਮੰਨ ਕੇ ਬਹਿ ਜਾਣਾ ਕਿਉਂਕਿ ਉਸ ਸਮੇਂ ਸਮਝ ਹੀ ਐਨੀ ਕੁ ਹੁੰਦੀ ਸੀ। ਅਖੇ ਪਿਓ ਮਰੇ ਮਗਰੋਂ ਆਪਣੇ ਚਾਚੇ ਤਾਇਆਂ ਤੋਂ ਜਮੀਨਾਂ ਚੋਂ ਹਿੱਸੇ ਮੰਗਦੀਆਂ ਫਿਰਦੀਆਂ ਨੇ।

Hello Poster lovers!

Today is Sunday, so why don't we learn something about social rights?

I researched two significant movements in history that used vintage posters as a tool to bring attention to their cause:
- 'I Am a Man '
- The women's rights movement.
Let's dive in! Image
The "I Am a Man" movement emerged in Memphis, TN in 1968, with African American sanitation workers demanding better pay and safer working conditions. The workers marched with signs bearing the words "I Am a Man," asserting their humanity and dignity in the face of discrimination. Image
One iconic poster from the "I Am a Man" movement features the phrase "Honor King: End Racism!", symbolizing resistance and solidarity. The poster was created to promote a march that took place in Memphis in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. after his assassination. #MLK #Posters Image

@JohnDunlea @appfeed67 @RaymondZino @EdKrassen So what

US has the most legal guns but is only halfway down the gun-murder league table

Serbia & Israel are in the top few countries with the most legal gun ownership per person but are 3/4 way down

Switzerland 2nd most (possibly most per household) & was falling off bottom!🤦‍♂️ ImageImageImageImage
@JohnDunlea @appfeed67 @RaymondZino @EdKrassen So why does US have so many mass shootings such as in schools

When other high gun legal ownership countries don't have mass shootings or even high gun murders


What are "liberals" trying to distract & deflect from with gun control😱 ImageImageImageImage
@JohnDunlea @appfeed67 @RaymondZino @EdKrassen If want to watch a #Triggernometry interview that could well explain why the USA leads the world with #MassShootings

Especially #MassSchoolShootings

Watch this:

⚠️🚨#TriggerWarning: It's because the USA leads the World with "#Liberalism" & #Feminism!

Have you thought to wonder how 🇨🇦's #HousingCrisis relates to the transition from #feudalism to #capitalism, through the lens of #feminism? I did, so I asked ChatGPT to help, with focus on Silvia Federici's writings in her book, Caliban and the Witch. 1/11


#cdnpoli #onpoli
Canada's housing crisis today can be understood through the lens of the historical process of capitalist accumulation discussed in the book, Caliban and the Witch by Silvia Federici. 2/11
The book argues that the transition from feudalism to capitalism was not a natural or inevitable process, but rather a violent and coercive one that involved the dispossession of land, resources, and knowledge from common people, particularly women. 3/11

The anarchist wing of the 1970s women’s liberation movement operated predominantly through decentralized small groups like the Ithaca Tiamat Collective. Tiamat (1975-78) functioned as both a consciousness-raising group and an outward-facing political organization. #twithaca 1/
Tiamat put out an issue of the national newsletter called Anarcha-Feminist Notes and organized an anarcha-feminist conference in 1978 in Ithaca, NY. This conference brought together anarcha-feminist collectives from across the country to develop their theory and practice, 2/ Image
form personal relationships, and coordinate the movement. Although the conference was criticized by some women for its predominantly white and middle-class attendance, it was an important milestone for the anarcha-feminist movement. 3/

When I walk into a medical office with a severe illness, and you don't listen to me, stereotype me because of my weight, belittle me for being middle aged, and give me stupid and crriminal advice, you deny the work women have been doing for thousands of years. 1/n. #feminism
When you don't listen to a human being who has a master's degree in statistics,a master's degree in demography, and who has an excel spreadsheet of her cholesterol since age 35, you are discriminating against that person. As a woman, I prefer to live in the 21st century. 2/n
When you deny me access to good medical care and use all kinds of slurs to discount the validity of my medical concerns, you are discriminating against me. 3/n #feminism #Minnesota #MedicalMalpractice.

#Feminism ; Theory, Approach and Pros & Cons.
Contributions of Movements like #MeToo & #AuratMarch
Political Powerplay, Social Status OR recrafting of Social Fabric.
A Genuine Movement, A Paradox, OR a Hoax.
A Detailed Thread on the Downtown talk of this age.
Feminism is both an intellectual commitment and a political movement that seeks justice for women and the end of sexism in all forms. Motivated by the quest for social justice, feminist inquiry provides a wide range of perspectives on social, cultural, economic, and
political phenomena. Yet despite many overall shared commitments, there are numerous differences among feminist philosophers regarding philosophical orientation, ontological commitments (such as the category of women), & what kind of political and moral remedies should be sought.

🧵We are getting ready to listen to @glosswitch talking to @soniasodha at @Womans_Place_UK online launch of #Hags #WPUKHags - very exciting!

#WomensHistoryMonth #readwomen #BookTwitter #IWD2023 #InternationalWomensDay #WorldBookDay #booktwt Image
Victoria @glosswitch is talking first about how she got the idea for #Hags and how 2020 was named the 'Year of the Karen' and it struck her that middle-aged women were being demonised #WPUKHags
She is also talking about #feminism in the 90s as a member of #GenerationX and how she had thought that her generation would be different to her mother's generation. But then realising that our feminist experiences are the same throughout #HERstory #WPUKHags

Why are all women controlled by the threat of male violence, and even if it’s #NotAllMen it’s enough to make all women act differently? A thread 🧵 👇

My 17 yr old niece gets the bus to work, college & the gym. She is young, blonde, pretty & kind. She has become a target…
…for predatory men. From comments, staring, ‘jokes’ & now the inevitable & classic ‘creepy man on bus’. It started as soon as she hit puberty & it’s only getting worse.

The other day a man sat next to her on an otherwise empty bus. This is not a neutral act. It is an act of…
…dominance & aggression. It is a man trapping a young woman for his own gratification. He demanded her attention. The bus driver did nothing. She was too scared to say anything & the bus driver didn’t seem to notice/care.

She stopped going to the gym & has quit her job…

Women, like men, children old people etc are all programmable monkeys.

White women are especially programmable. They'll believe almost anything that society tells them to believe.
It turns out that organized societies that didn't die all ended up programming women with a TON of oppressive stuff. Guilt, shame, need for modesty, etc.

Low testosterone is destroying an entire generation of men & nobody is talking about it. In the last 2 decades, levels have fallen over 50%.

Teen Brides, Migrant Husbands and Religious Schooling
An Analysis of Young Women’s Experiences of Marriage and Schooling in Rural Bangladesh by Marzana Kamal free to download in Feminist Dissent 6 #Bangladesh #feminism…
Kamal challenges the optimism about the rapid growth in girls studying in madrassa schools . She contests the claim, backed by some western feminists that religious schools and early marriage facilitate rural women’s agency.
Her research looked at women in villages marrying migrant labourers working in the Gulf. Brides who attend madrassa schools tended to stop study after marriage, though many had hoped they could continue. Girls in secular schools tended to stay in education longer.
