Selina Soule failed to qualify for a track event in New England after 2 biological males scored qualifying places.

The 16-yr-old female athlete from Bloomfield, CT was forced to compete against males, because despite being born biologically male, they now identify as females.
This is a women's rights issue. Where are the #feminists?

Here is my rant of the day:
Why is @FeminismInIndia a sham ?

1) I was raised by a #feminist father. He went out of his way to make sure I get the best education possible even though we are refugees in our own country. Yes, I am a victim of #terrorism in #Kashmir.

1 of n
2) I was never treated differently than my brother. You know why ? Because we are #Kashmirihindus and we treat everyone equally.
3) I presided over yagnas because I was the eldest child of the family. My gender had no bearing on that.
4) I was sent to a gurukul style school

2/n
5) I was sent to schools that taught me Shrimad bhagwat Geeta in addition to #kalaripayattu (ancient Indian martial art) for my protection.
Why ? Because my father din want me to fall prey to #islamicterrorists of #kashmir and get raped or murdered. He wanted me safe.

This is really starting to piss me off. #Trudeau literally created the most diverse cabinet in the history of #Canada, giving #POC the highest jobs in the country. He’s welcomed #Syrian refugees, he’s increased funding to #Indigenous people, he’s marched with #LGBTQ in #Pride...
...Parades. He’s supported #women’s rights, stood with #feminists & created the most gender balanced cabinet in the history of this country. His record on #humanrights, #multiculturalism & #diversity speaks a feck of a lot louder than some 20 year old photos. Wake up #canada!...
This is not #racism it is character assassination plain & simple. Don’t believe me? Look at Scheer’s record on #multiculturalism, #diversity & #inclusion. Look at the #whitenationalists, #bigots & #racists running in his campaign & ask yourself why they got a pass & JT doesn’t...

The Moral Superiority Complex exhibited in this feminist article is stunning. It's Either u with #feminism or else u are a misogynist.If u r a woman who thinks independently & comes to a non feministic conclusion then u have internalized misogyny.1/n womensweb.in/2019/08/a-new-…
In other words accept what we say or else we will brand u as Evil.Nothing more misogynistic than that unwarranted presupposition.
Fallacies in the article:
1)"public is in the hands of feminists"-this line doesn't mean that no bad things will happen to Females,but rather 2/n
points​ to the fact that majority of media,Bollywood, politicians etc r feminists​ who influences public. At least they don't oppose feminism in public.
2)"cases that couldn't be proved don't mean all women lie"- It's true that Absence of Evidence is not an Evidence for Absence.

Is someone who creates and hosts a mastedon based fork for #feminists which is "women-centric" a Terf or just Terf-adjacent?

Looking into #spinster - a spin off from #mumsnet and #twitter - and who runs/hosts/maintains it...
The domain is on sale for $1200 or so - is it worth running a crowd-funder to raise this?

Who'd be in?
The domain it runs on... spinster.xyz

I wish I had an anonymous donor who would just throw the money at this "problem"

ON MUSLIM #FEMINISM

One of the major breakdowns in communication between #Muslim #feminists and critics thereof is the implicit misconception that the latter have not or do not face issues around women's rights. This is largely due to yet another misconception: 1/6
the inaccurate claim that critics of feminism do not believe there is a need to fight for women's rights.

Having said it innumerable times, it remains a point that falls on deaf ears: to be critical of feminism is neither a lack of empathy, nor a dismissal of 2/6
the plight of women within the ummah. Across the global Muslim community, there are female critics of feminism who suffer injustices and who fight for their rights in ways that align with Islam. 3/6

@thecadclub retweeted an article about #Putin praising Russian women for STAYING BEAUTIFUL and taking care of the home.

Then I read this article.

Clear as day to me.

We need to talk about GENDER REALITIES IN RUSSIA AND IN THE WEST.

THREAD 👇
1.EXPECTATIONS

What is expected of women?

Let's ask Putin:

“You manage everything at work and at home, whilst staying beautiful, bright, and charming”

G answer. PURE HONESTY.

First, be beautiful, bright and charming.

All men know that. Only Western societies live in denial
Even the WOMEN agree:

"When women are young, they value their appearance most of all, but by their thirties they give in to the dominant norms and admit that the most important quality in a woman is being a good homemaker."

Be hot when you're young. Be supportive later.

The new transgender world order is #misogyny on steroids.

This picture reflects the perfect stupidity and complete brainwashing. Wake up #feminists
Look. Terry Miller won. What a shocker. Give me a BREAK! No to #transgender male-to-females in sports

We didn't have public conversations about these definitions: cis, binary, s/he, etc even two years ago. What was then considered to be a fringe belief system has become normalized as centrist political discourse. Even being taught at public schools!
It's presented to us as being perfectly normal, and we're crazy to think there's anything wrong with it.
We have trans male-to-females competing, dismantling the concept of women in organized sports. People who object are ostracized and labeled "intolerant." #Feminists should be outraged.

I saw that @GoldmundUnleash poked the hornet's nest by upsetting some fugly #feminists with his tweet.

WOULD NEVER HAPPEN IN RUSSIA

Russian women are different from Western women.

Here are 24 ways how:

THREAD

👇
1. NO OBESITY IN RUSSIA

I challenge you to find fat people under 25. There are none.

Body positivity means looking as beautiful as possible.

If you're too fat you lose weight or stay home.
2. APPEARANCE MATTERS

I visited a Californian campus a few years ago. All females were dressed in sweatpants.

That shit doesn't fly in Russia.

University means you DRESS UP.

Just like for the theater.

Or the club.

Or grocery shopping.

As a woman I am sick of women not owning their part & responsibility. If you get insanely drunk & black out at parties, you bear some responsibility for what happens to you. If you are drunk or high & behave overtly sexual, to men you just met you put yourself in danger.
Let's face it young women in college act incredibly stupid and put themselves in a lot of danger. Does that mean that they asked to be assaulted no? But would they have been assaulted had they not put themselves in situations that made it much more likely that they would be, YES!
Don't go to a club, introduce yourself to a guy, shake hands, start dancing, rub your booty in his crotch, & then accuse the guy of toxic masculinity. Don't send out mixed messages! It is your responsibility to take care of yourself.

1. Story of Mr. X "architect of #ColdWar"
The advises of Mr X to The US will
always be helpful to us from #JNU to #Pakistan to #Kathua

This is the STORY of a person #Lost_in_the_pages_of_history

I PROMISE by the end of the #RightFactsThread you'll have #Goosebumps 🙏🙏
2. This person is known to the world as #Mr_X for decades thanks to an ARTICLE he wrote in @ForeignAffairs (july 1946) with the pen name of Mr. X

His real name was #GeorgeKenan the US ambassador to erstwhile Soviet Union in 1940s

The article was an excerpt of his LONG TELEGRAM
3. The #LongTelegram as it's known was shot back in The US gave 2 things:

👉 Geopolitical reality post WWII
👉he proposed that the US should adopt the strategy of “containment”—not conventional warfare

His other advises in his #LongTelegram r directly relevant in Indian context

With what new logical aberration and new hysterical susceptibility,
will be celebrated the massive fellatio to #Soros in the next #WomensMarch2018 ?

Every day next few days I'll share one #depression/#anxiety insight from my own experience. If it helps anyone a wee bit, it'll be worth it.
1. "#Happiness" can scare #anxiety patients. In our heads, things are always going wrong. Fear of a "happy" moment undone is doubly painful.
Sorry, this won't be a daily affair as I had earlier imagined. But here's insight #2 based on my brush with #depression/#anxiety.
