"The method of showing the empowerment of Muslim women by showcasing them doing “great things” in science and tech (STEM) fields smacks of inferiority complex. It accepts and takes for granted the non-Muslim framework. " #Thread #Feminism
Instead of questioning the standards set by the opposing side, it simply tries to conform to them. The The other side, held by non-Muslims and Islamophobes, holds a specific set of assumptions:
1. Women must work for financial compensation in order to be considered “successful” and “useful to society” and “bettering the world.”

2. The most prestigious careers are in STEM, which are dominated by men. Women ought to be encouraged to enter them.

One thing I want to say to skeptics of #Cuties who are basing their judgement off how exhibitionist the dance moves are in it, especially in the final competition performance scene, is that while it can be okay to draw boundaries for kids wrt exhibitionism, 1/12
there will be instances where girls cross lines adults don't want them to cross, and there are appropriate and inappropriate ways to rebuke them; it is inappropriate to let boys/men feel entitled to exhibitionist girls'/women's bodies which, like all girls'/women's bodies, 2/12
boys/men do not have dominion over! Dance and sexual relationships have features in common, but not all of the body language that can be seen in both should be seen as explicitly sexual in all instances. While I believe that explicit sexual exhibitionism can occur in dance, 3/12

Recent case of #SSR has not just shook the core of #Bollyeood but it must also make us sit back & think.

Despite Drug Chats, Admission of Shouvik, entire media lobby, plus Bollywood has come out to Support #RheaChakraborthy
Calling her victim
2/10
Compare it to #KanganaRanaut Few yrs back.
When she spoke against Pancholi, Johar Hrithik, & Suman!

Dhe was called a Witch, druggie, attention seeker, Psychopath & what not.
I remember whenever I tried to defend her I was called a feminist.
But why is it that for Rhea
3/10
It's called witch hunt & Vilification but for Kangana, she is still abused?
Ironically, same Arnab Goswami had declared her psychotic!

Is she not a woman?
Is feminism/ Victim 💳 not for her?

Ans is:

Society loves weak women!
Bcoz True sense of #Feminism is scary !

1) #Feminism’ needs an overhaul.

If the world ‘doesn’t end’ this fall, & somehow God spares us once again, I hope the ‘idea’ of ‘feminism’ takes a 4th wave.

One that says:
•the unborn matter- a woman that cares is a warrior, NOT a ‘traitor’
2)
•taking care of a family, if that’s your DESIRE instead of a ‘career’, & you’re able to have the rare GIFT of this option, makes you no less of a ‘woman.’ Ensuring your children are educated, motivated, & your husband is supported isn’t a degree you can earn, it’s that hard.
3)
•My dad is revered & adored at his work. Yet he chose to be home everyday by 5:30 for his family, instead of his career. My mother prays for her adult children every morning, & my dad fasts for us weekly. It’s a #spiritualwar field out there, & they’ve never stopped battling

TRÅD: #Kristdemokraterna:s utspel om ett feministiskt program igår gav inte så mycket att bita i, vi får se hur mycket det blir en "familjism" á la SD, som en del befarat. MEN en central ideologisk aspekt var en tydligt INTERSEKTIONELL =>

If progress in women's movements can be destroyed 𝘣𝘺 𝘢𝘤𝘤𝘪𝘥𝘦𝘯𝘵 by one or two people talking about tangentially related topics and must be defended by deplatforming and force rather than by rational arguments, perhaps we need to admit that such progress is unsound?
"𝑻𝒉𝒂𝒕 𝑾𝒉𝒊𝒄𝒉 𝑪𝒂𝒏 𝑩𝒆 𝑫𝒆𝒔𝒕𝒓𝒐𝒚𝒆𝒅 𝑩𝒚 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝑻𝒓𝒖𝒕𝒉 𝑺𝒉𝒐𝒖𝒍𝒅 𝑩𝒆" is surely a founding principle of rationality; it seems that "progress in women's movements" is frightened of the truth and open debate. Petrified, even.

Remember the belief that meat is the best or only protein source is a #racist belief, discounting the way the majority of the cultures ate. #thesexualpoliticsofmeat #feminism #vegan /3
A #masculinity made anxious & unsettled seeks to re-establish itself by invoking #redmeat; you can find this happening at key points in US history: the rise of immigration at the end of the 19th century, after the Vietnam War, after 9/11, & during the #Trump 2016 campaign /4
The scholar #VasileStanescu discusses the work of #EMDuPuis who suggested that it was not a coincidence that colonialism, nativist union sentiment, and the decrease in the cost of meat occurred simultaneously at the end of the 19th century. #xenophobia #manhoood #meateating /5

Criticism of feminism. #feminism

As any Indian educated girl I too grew up as a feminist, telling my mom to remove the pallu from head & unwilling to do household tasks (laziness supported by feminist ideology) ++
Though as I grew and started questioning all religions (liberalism, communism, feminism) instead of Hinduism only I found feminism severely problematic.
I call these ideologies as religions coz their adherants behave like fanatics & they are quite as supremacist at core. ++
Coming to the premise of Feminism.
The core premise of Feminism is faulty in which it considers a woman not equal or companion but inferior to man and then it struggles to make her equal to man by abandoning her traditional sphere and proving her worth in man's world. ++

Over the past few weeks, I have seen a lot of genuine rape allegations being buried by defamation suits due to victims taking to twitter and other social media platforms first, instead of speaking to professionals such as Lawyers and therapists. #Thread
So I thought I could draw up a list of NGO's that help rape and sexual abuse victims get justice and healing. I hope this is useful to someone. Please help share and retweet.

I began last Monday by starting a memoir called "Unveiled". The book has been so engrossing that this week will go down in my personal history as the @YasMohammedxx week!

There was not a single page that didn't deliver a blow or let the tension rest.
To think that so many people worked so hard at breaking her is devastating. To see that they all failed is entirely uplifting. As long as there are fierce women like Yasmine in the world, there's hope for all of us. Here's to her dream of #FreeFromHijab and ...
here's to her courageous book, which everyone wondering about the next chapter of global #Feminism must read: amazon.com/Unveiled-Weste…

What if the money 💰💰💰 spent by #academia & #hospitals on hiring people to spy on #SoMe, to police & shame nurses & doctors (even getting some fired for speaking up on #PPE shortage), this policing disproportionately affecting BIPOC, instead spent on hiring BIPOC & on pay gap
This is pay gap I am talking about. What kind of “#professionalism” accepts that Black women must work 7 extra months for same pay?

Professionalism on “you wore..” is used in sinister ways against Black women in particular

#blackintheivory #MedTwitter

Puritanism in #medicine, being taught to med students who are given middle author status on a publication conceived and supported by senior faculty and junior editors, is part of this harm. Many Black girls are criminalized & punished for natural hair.

Longer blog post on this coming soon. Have been having too many of the same convos w/fellow sisters lately on issues related to "womanhood" and "marriage."

I'm going to get blasted for this, but hear me out cause very few sisters will admit what I'm about to tell you.
1) Men and women are *fundamentally* different. Most women (and many man) believe whatever men have always done, women *must* do. Also, not having the experiences he's had as a man does not make you inferior. It makes you a woman, which is precisely what a man needs and wants.
2) Most careers can't be reconciled to accommodate for motherhood. You can't (and won't) have it all. Something will give.

3) You're not meant to compete w/him. If you choose to, you lose. Why? Cause you end up w/o the thing you want most: his commitment to & respect for you.

As #Afrifem we often say that "we stand on the shoulders of giants". How much do we actually know about our #feminist foremothers? The question came as I read @EverjoiceWin's moving obituary for Mabel Moyo. May she rest in power.

Fake feminism is nothing, but a synonym of FREEDOM TO HAVE RANDOM SEX

If creating impression through Exposing the body symbolises their Ideology, then how it’s stands out from Prostitution?

Pseudo-feminism teaches the women to see themselves as ‘Victim’ & men as ‘perverts’
1/6
#Feminism ideologies embedded with the ‘Western Lifestyle’ is being a favourite subject to the ‘fake feminists’ now

Fake-feminism ideologies deny the ‘Matter of loyalty’ to one man, accepts ‘Exposing’ in name of ‘Worshipping a beauty’. #boycottbollywood #nepotisminbollywood
2/6
Fake feminists do nothing to address the real issues of real women.

Their campaigns & propaganda are often limited to media events & sloganeering.

They keep pontificating on non-issues while millions of real women suffer for basic rights. #FeministMafia #shameonbollywood

We need to get something out in the open right now.
We need to understand who Bernie Sanders supporters are, and more importantly, who they're not. (thread)
morningconsult.com/2020/04/10/san…
First, let’s understand who they aren’t. They are *NOT* disillusioned former Bernie supporters who’ve “gone rogue.” We know this because real Bernie supporters en masse now support Biden like he does.
morningconsult.com/2020/04/08/as-…
That is, nearly all Bernie’s former supporters are now going to vote for Biden.

These people understand that Joe Biden is the better choice than Donald Trump to move us toward the world that they believe in…the world envisioned by Bernie Sanders. 3/

we say #feminism they say #equality
We say #blacklivesmatter they say #alllivesmatter

It’s always the one on the other side of the line that are oblivious to the fight, the pain, the injustices.

If people are out on the road and you do not understand - educate yourself!
Don’t disagree!

When you think it is not needed where thousands, if not millions, are crying for it - you obviously don’t know the whole story.

Does a doctor diagnose with one symptom?
do you graduate after one class?
Do you know where I’m goin with this?
no one knows everything - before you disagree or advocate against what people are protesting for - PLEASE EDUCATE YOURSELF.

It’s ok to not know - it is,however, NOT OKAY to be ignorant.

History is a lesson, don’t google what you think, google facts & news.

"Menstruation Break is not a Myth"

Feminists fight for Equality for Menstruating Women..

They say menstruating is not something unnatural, untouchable so treat them with equality.

I will say NO don't fight for Equality coz men don't menstruate.
Women during menstruation in ancient times were given a special place in home to
1. Rest frm natural chores
2. Have your own world of relaxation
3. Give a man opportunity to take th responsibilities
4. Stay healthy and restful by being at a place
5. Eat well and sleep peacefully
Menstruating women did not touch God due to Tamasic and Rajasic energies which release from body. Though it didn't limit our soul and vaak to stop Namaparayana or sing hail the lord's name. Remember we take a word " MAA / AMMA" during pain. The ultimate Maa is the goddess.
