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.

Around 5 years ago I first encountered the vitriolic attacks on #women asserting their right to politically self-organise from so-called trans-rights activists in a socialist group I associated with at the time. Having been active in radical left... /1

...politics for nearly 30 years I had never encountered such appallingly sectarian, dishonest & personal attacks on the left. My first reaction was to defend #women's self-organisation on the basis that we must also support #LGBT self-organisation so ensuring... /2

...that different oppressed groups each had space & representation to better challenge that oppression. For this I was denounced as #transphobic just as the #women had been for asserting their right to self-organise had been & I first encountered the mantra... /3

Support for survivors of sexual assault on a day a rapist has died, a thread:

[Content Warning: This thread uses the r-word, and deals with aftermath-related issues, but does not contain detailed descriptions of assault.]

1/18
I'm not going to type his name or use any hashtags, lest I be accused of being an insensitive monster. I'm not. Losing a father or a spouse so suddenly is a pain I can't imagine. Not to mention his daughter on that helicopter too. Devastating. I can't imagine. 2/18
But ... Isn't it interesting, how survivors are always asked to think of the rapist's family?

Is that right, or fair? WHY IS IT OKAY to ask this of survivors?

I'm so tired of EVERYONE being prioritized over survivors in this world. I'm so tired of being SILENCED. 3/18

When looking at the violence on the streets in Chile keep in mind this footage of riot cops snorting cocaine before heading off to batter protesters
Keep in mind that Chile is now one of the most unequal countries in the world
Keep in mind that Chile is ruled by a Billionaire former businessmen

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?

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"

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.

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.
