1) Het #COC is ontstaan door een hitstige verzetsheld uit de #WWII. Hij ging de homo-acceptatie in #NL bevorderen, met behulp van andere hitstige helden. En daar zitten we nu, verplicht opgescheept met #ltbtqiaap #ltbtqia+ #ltbttq #transitie #queer enz.
Eerst ff dit vooraf:
2) In 2012 heeft #CDA-minister #Bijsterveldt voorlichting over homo en transseksualiteit VERPLICHT gesteld op ALLE scholen in Nederland. (Nog bedankt bitch).
Veel leden uit het kabinet zijn verbonden aan het #COC. En er worden prijzen uitgedeeld (t is niet waar..) 🎖🏆#Bergkamp
3) Eén van die #COC-prijzen viel mij op: 🎖De Bob Angelo Penning🎖
De #ltbtq-priester Wielie Elhorst ontving deze ook. En #Halsema gaf hem de titel 'Ridder in de Orde van Oranje-Nassau'.
Wie is die Bob Angelo, en wat maakt die prijs zo belangrijk? Wie winnen die dan? Dacht ik.

Research says most people who use drugs are men. And many people think there is no reason to involve #women in #drugpolicy. But they are mistaken. The drug phenomenon is not #gender neutral.

Why a #feminist perspective is essential 👉💡🧵...
Due to gendered norms and notions of #femininity that are incompatible with #drugs use, the complex realities of women are often ignored. However, a growing movement is trying to shift this perspective to better understand the unique challenges that female users face.
Let’s have a closer 👁️👁️ why…

#Women who use drugs are often judged because they don’t comply with socially constructed #norms and challenge the traditional role of women.

How womens restrooms can be made more inclusive: a thread 🧵
1. Remove bathroom locks - locks in bathrooms create a sense of hostility and may make many folk feel unwelcome. This is particularly important for people who want access to join someone else in their cubicle. (cont..)
The removal of locks would transfer bathrooms from isolationist spaces (with notions of neoliberal individualism) into collective, social spaces, creating a better sense of community and solidarity amongst women, & facilitating more effective organization for womens liberation.

To counter some of the disappointing & predictable responses to heroic #protests in #Iran, incl in #academia, I share my recent essay which calls on academics to avoid undercutting dissident #feminist voices, incl those of #Muslim heritage

Concepts like Orientalism & Islamophobia, originally responding to realities of past & present subordination, are now sometimes used by Western critical intellectuals to discipline those who exercise their equal right to be critical of their own contexts..

This is an important story about tech, surveillance, and college campuses.…

Let's talk about it a bit.
(The UNC system figures prominently: UNC, A&T, NC State. Also note: "The company also changed the name of the service from Social Sentinel to Navigate360 Detect earlier this year.:)
The promise of social media monitoring is a gift from Facebook but also an extension of our culture's obsession with carceral solutions to social change. I've talked before about how campus police is more robust than the general public realizes.…

Agnes Pareyio Recalls Hers:
"I was 14 when my mom and grandma announced that I was going to have my clitoris, my labia majora and my labia minora cut out. They said that if I resisted I was a coward. In my culture, the worst thing you can be called is a coward.
On the day I was mutilated, I was woken up at three in the morning and taken outside, naked, because the villagers believed that if I felt the morning breeze on my body it would cool me and I would bleed less. I saw that the object they would cut me with was not sharp. I was not
offered any anaesthesia, but I was told not to cry – your father is in the house, they said, and he should never hear you cry.
I was determined to show I was not a coward, so I tried very hard not to show any emotion. As a result, I was cut deeper and I could not stop bleeding. I

2/ I was raised Catholic and believe in this (ctto via reddit)

Love thy neighbor.
All neighbors. No exceptions.

If I really hated them then I just did not hang out w them 🤷🏻‍♀️. No hateful speech or hateful laws.
3/ Most of my family in Texas is religious, republican, & single issue voters. Anti abortion, no matter what. Even if M@ga Trumpism breaks all the other 9 commandments.

I hate that I now have to discuss forced-birth issues w beloveds.

"Sex work is work" is not only misogynistic, but racist & classist as well.

January & May at more than 150,000, with Nairobi recording nearly 12k pregnancies.

This was a result of transactional sex for sanitary pads, a shower, clean water, & food. Many parents don't send their daughters to school & marry them off at a young age to relieve pressure...

As funders hold critical conversations on how to best support #Ukraine, here's a 🧵for #philanthropy on where to start from👇🏽

p.s. updated list of #Feminist #Young #LBTQI #Disability justice orgs is here
Whats needed -- Sensitivity and understanding of rapidly changing local contexts and how grassroots level organizing works (at the moment but also before the war) in order to provide an adequate response to the emergency in #Ukraine
Also, active listening to the needs of feminist, queer, disability rights organizers to deeply understand what kind of funding and the quality of support is essential to consistently address the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine

In a few short days, we've moved from pundits mournfully intoning platitudes about the terrible return of war to Europe (completely ignoring the 90s, of course) to shrieking for a great power war and explaining nukes aren't that big a deal anyway.

This is political psychosis.
Actual psychopath in the wild here.
Of course, the eternal weathervane of midwit opinion is on board too.

Good morning! In about 10 minutes, we will be expanding on our discussion of Individual Causes of Delinquency by looking at #gender & #delinquency

I look forward to your questions & following along. How do you identify?

#CRJ107 #MoraineValley
The term #gender is complex, so what elements of delinquency are we going to examine in this discussion?

We are going to try to answer the question as to why gender differences are significant in the study of delinquency

#CRJ107 #MoraineValley Image
I think it is essential to acknowledge that gender identity is much more complex than differences between male & female offending

How anti-choice organizations are slowly making their way into respectability: a 🧵. I’ve been witnessing the slow legitimization of #antichoice orgs in global spaces and conversations and this is concerning. 10 years ago, no one save the similarly conservative would have been
Caught dead talking and strategizing with them. It’s 2022, #SRHR are under severe backlash and constant threat, yet the artisans of said backlash have access to mainstream strategic conversations and briefings. They now benefit from several platforms from which they can reinforce
Their anti #SRHR messages, in seemingly all impunity. To me this highlight two things: how conservative populist gvts have relied on these orgs to access power and rewarding them for their support by giving them time and space and how these orgs have instrumentalized human rights

Convince me that artificial reproductive technologies (ARTs) r the right choice for society & individuals to pursue rather than reducing environmental & other risk factors for #infertility & promotion of ethical #fostering & #adoption.…
Convince me that having biological issue is worth ART's tremendous expense & medical risks.
If you tell me infertility is causing marital discord, I tell you that that marriage may have bigger problems.

This is going to be controversial, but here goes.
Although I do believe in #GenderEquality, I don't consider myself to be a #feminist.
I will explain the reasons why in this thread... (1/x)
First let's look at the Meriam-Webster definition of the word...

"[A] belief in and advocacy of the political, economic, and social equality of the sexes expressed especially through organized activity on behalf of women's rights and interests."

This definition: ✔️
However, the people that call themselves "feminists" don't always reflect this reality.
Even if you are committed to improving the rights of women, you might very well not be a feminist.
Why? (3/x)

Safe streets for women #ReclaimTheseStreets #ReclaimTheNight what can be done? When I was researching my book on feminist activism & particularly Reclaim the Night marches, women often gendered public space as default male. Women would say that RtN marches 'took back' 'took over'
'reclaimed' public space in their town/city centres. So much concrete, steps, bridges etc. Likewise, when on RtN marches, hostile men watching often receive these protests in exactly the same way, as incursion, trespass, invasion, takeover. Many times I've been on RtN & heard...
hostile men bystanders shout stuff like'get in the kitchen' 'go home' 'these are our streets'. So women are not wrong in perceiving public space as default male. We will not end sexualised male violence against women overnight, but we can change this messaging by changing cities.

#UniOfLahore scene was created by plan & design,now this incident will take over all the other important news in media/social media. The so-called #Liberal #Feminist groups of #Pakistan will start these trends;
1. You can rape a girl in Madrassa but you can’t propose a girl @ Uni
2. You can kill ppl in Uni (examples of #Mashal will be used) but you can’t propose a boy at Uni
3. Pro-Taliban apologists are against Love
Then the news/tweets of Threats to the lives of the boy & girl start circulating & a new debate will start all over
Then the so-called Women’s Rights groups, Human Rights groups will start a campaign with “Save the lovebirds” slogan & a new drama will start and protection will be demanded for the couple, anti groups will also come out, PR companies will be hired etc...
We know all these games!

1/ De ophef door Westerse mannen over de volleybal in Qatar begrijp ik wel: vele mannen zien gráág #vrouwen die #schaars #gekleed zijn.

Van de vrouwen is het echter jammer, dat het #patriarchaat velen van hen wijs heeft gemaakt dat vlees tonen onder de noemer "#vrijheid" valt.
2/ Ben je nou écht vrij, wanneer het mannelijk oog alsmaar weer op je #lichaam valt, en je #beoordeeld wordt op je #vrouwelijke #rondingen in plaats van de mooie persoon die jij van binnen bent?
3/ Ben je nou écht vrij, wanneer je weer die #maatschappelijke #druk voelt om jezelf minimaal een halfuur op te maken voor je de deur uitgaat? En nadat je dat hebt gedaan, alsnog onzeker bent over hoe je eruit ziet?
