Im ÖR häufen sich seit 2021 einseitige Lobby-Beiträge über #Entfremdung. Gut belegte, berechtigte Kritik an diesem gefährlichen Narrativ wird bisher als Diskurs abgetan. Aber: Das ist keine Meinungsvielfalt, sondern gefährlich! Ein Erklär-#Thread für Euch, liebe Redaktionen, wie
diese Lobby Euch & alle mit Unwissenschaftlichkeit blendet, an einem Beispiel. An Ende gibt es noch ein paar Links, z.B. zur Erklärung des Hochkommissariats für Menschenrechte der UN, das dieses #Entfremdung|s-Narrativ ebenfalls als brandgefährlich einstuft. Let's go:
Seit der wichtigen Studie von Joan Meier et al. (2019) zu "Eltern-Kind-Entfremdung", die einen statistisch signifikanten #GenderBias in Familiengerichten zulasten von Müttern belegt, tobt ein erneuter PAS-Study-War. Lobby-Wissenschaftler versuchen wieder

𝗧𝗛𝗥𝗘𝗔𝗗: Can @BabylonHealth Be Trusted?

‘Bad Bot' (part 3): The final chapter in the @BadBotThreads...

Just to be clear, I don’t ‘hate’ @babylonhealth (hate is emotive & suggests a lack of objectivity). However I do not trust Babylon - & in my opinion - Babylon has not demonstrated the ethical or moral values expected of an #AI #HealthTech corporation.
It’s important to note that the ‘corporate’ failings of the @babylonhealth are as consequence of decisions taken by a tiny minority of the senior leadership team - & are not in any way a reflection on Babylon’s employees or clinical services.

Spent the evening facilitating a virtual bookclub meeting with @WUSTLmed student AMWA group. Their chosen book below

Really thoughtful discussion about the #genderbias patterns and strategies

Some key takeaways below
#WomenInMedicine #MedEd #MedTwitter
Gender bias patterns

➡️Prove it again
🚺 judged on accomplishments
🚹 judged on potential
🔑⬇️stretch roles

🚺don’t apply until meet 100% qualifications
🚹apply if meet 60%
🔑 Missed opportunities

🎯Keep list of accomplishments, take a leap, form group to celebrate wins
Gender bias patterns cont’d

Too nice-> not respected
Too assertive-> not liked

Words matter
Pushy-> Persuasive
Aggressive -> Assertive
Emotional -> Passionate
🔑Check your biases

Written words matter in LOR
🔑Focus on accomplishments not only personality

"We’ve heard of gaps in pay, lack of promotion, stolen ideas, retaliation for challenging male colleagues, sexualization of learning materials, sexual assault — the list goes on. A common thread is fear of retaliation...#sexual"… via @statnews
#sexualharassment & #genderbias are real and pervasive in medicine

Even among organizations that claim to be committed to change.…
What is the solution?

1. Clear standards
2. Clear reporting mechanisms
3. Independent data collection & publication
4. Doing the work to address toxic leadership & culture. It isn't easy but without concerted effort, there will be no change.

Just in: @GendroOrg piece – Towards the real-time inclusion of sex-and age-disaggregated #data in #pandemic responses – published @GlobalHealthBMJ

Enjoy your fresh #globalhealth read!

@heidari_s @ClaudiaAhumadaG @ziyodaadoyiz…
DYK, that only 1/3 of all #COVID19 cases are reported to WHO with #data on sex & age?

If we want comprehensive & effective #publichealth measures to fight the pandemic, we need systematically collect & report #genderdata.

How? Check out our paper👉 Image
Data on #sexdifferences, #gender, age, geographies, #accesstohealth are essential from the outset and throughout different phases of #COVID19 progression.

More about prerequisites in pandemic response read our paper @GlobalHealthBMJ👇 Image

I’ll be live-tweeting the debates tonight. I don’t know why you wouldn’t want to watch, but in case you don’t have the stamina, I’ve got your back. 🥰

I’ve never live-tweeted anything before, and I’ve never made a Twitter thread. What could possibly go wrong? 😆

Just practicing adding one tweet to another.

So far, so good.
Look at me go!

The debates don’t start for another hour and forty minutes, and I haven’t even made my first typo yet.

Phew, chile! Let’s get this party started.

#Thread September is PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) Awareness Month!
The patriarchal gender bias in healthcare care practice and medicinal research has a negative impact on our well-being!
The impact is huge and diverse! People living with PCOS find it challenging to navigate through the bias that distorts research, diagnosis, and treatment. According to research, PCOS is fast becoming a modern epidemic, especially in Asia.
So what is it? PCOS is a common endocrine disorder that affects people with ovaries, with 20-25% womxn in India and around 1 in 10 womxn worldwide affected by it.

I have joined the Army of brave souls who completed their #PhD during the global #pandemic of 2020 #COVID19 . I am full of gratitude to everyone that contributed to this mammoth achievement directly or indirectly. 🎓👨‍🔬👨‍💼 @forbeslabumass @JWLeeJWL @UMassChemEng #microbiome #mucus ImageImage
I am looking into ways to have my name on the diploma to be 'Abhinav Priyanka Sharma'. My wife @priyankaitkar9 has contributed equally towards this degree emotionally. Without her love & support it would be incredibly hard to find the courage to keep going when I hit rock bottom.
My parents never went to college but made sure I had the best education possible. Even if that meant keeping me in the city away from them since the age of 5. They have invested their entire life emotionally and financially to my education. Hope I can give back as much as I can.

My story starts in a small town from the northern region of the warm vibrant and culturally diverse #India.
#VoicesIWS Image
Born as 3rd daughter in a culture where birth of a daughter is resented by many, my parents had to deal with 'eerie' solutions from society to get rid of the "burden" that I was about to become. But, my visionary parent-warriors had their armours on! 😇

1/Had an awful #toxicmasculinity @lyft experience that exemplified why culture matters so much when building a business and customer loyalty. Driver picked me up and then two other passengers for shared ride. I inquired the order of stops and mine was next destination.
2/Found out destination of other passengers and informed @lyft driver that his route was going in opposite direction of both passenger stops. Asked if he could reroute back to main road which would have been a 7 minute drive direct line on one road to my stop.
3/@lyft driver started complaining of my request and informed me he would not be paid if he veered from exact GPS route. I shared my experience that that policy was only for pickups to ensure no detour and efficiency of all passenger pickups.

This is utterly absurd!

The dangerously flawed unvalidated @babylonhealth Chatbot, continues to put WOMEN at risk of #DeathByChatbot #GenderBias.

A 60yr old 20/day Smoker with Sudden Onset Central Chest Pain & Nausea...

FEMALE = #PanicAttack.

MALE = #HeartAttack. ImageImage
Here is the♀️#GenderBias triage.

A 60yr old FEMALE smoker develops Sudden Onset Central Chest Pain & Nausea.

She uses the @babylonhealth Chatbot, which suggests it's a #PanicAttack or #Depression - which can be managed at home.

Here is the ♂️#GenderBias triage.

A 60yr old MALE smoker with an identical history uses the @babylonhealth Chatbot...

For him, the Chatbot suggests #UnstableAngina or #HeartAttack - which requires emergency treatment...

@RThienprayoon's tweet about this award resonated with me, though perhaps for different reasons. Like her, I had a tough early career step in #hpm #hapc. The first program chief my hospital had ever had, but isolated from a collegial network and with little local support. 1/7
Add in a late start to fellowship, and then 2 years of #miscarriage, #recurrentpregnancyloss and secondary #infertility. Those experiences made me a much better person/doctor/leader/human being, but let's be honest, weren't great for my early career leadership development. 2/7
Early #workingmomlife was a blur of hard work, sleep deprivation, disenfranchised grief, and lessons learned. The transformation was happening, but I couldn't see it. Not until I landed in a more supportive environment. #womeninmedicine 3/7

Thanks to #medtwitter for helping me deliver a powerful message at #CombiSIG19 on #genderbias. Here's what I said:

1. It's real. End of story. I gave a slide with tons of references, including from @JulieSilverMD @arghavan_salles @TheLancet ImageImage
But people like stories more than studies, so I also included an anecdote - a peer review of a textbook proposal. It was a rejection. Turns out, the publisher didn't agree with the critiques. #womeninmedicine Image
And I illustrated the potential ripple effect had I lost this opportunity not for lack of academic legitimacy, but for having a new job in a new city with a new baby.

Would I have had fewer speaking opportunities, research collaborations, funding? Image

The water in the pipeline cannot fix the leaks. Contrary to the advice #WomenInSTEM & #POCinSTEM receive, we cannot actually #leanin to solving the problem of #genderbias & #racialbias in #STEM & #academia. Thanks to @NatureEcoEvo & @RoinnAnLuisigh for this chance to say this. 1/
A few months ago, @Nature published a piece with advice on how senior women can confront #genderbias. While the advice contained therein was useful, the title was enraging.…. 2/
It led me to rage tweet a thread of statistics on #genderbias in #STEM, and that thread blew up And then I got incredibly lucky when @RoinnAnLuisigh offered me the opportunity to turn it into a column. Working with her was AMAZING! 1000% fantastic 3/

1/ @TheTakeaway @tanzinavega really disappointed you had this guest on a show peddling controversial theories that weaponize the failures of the #criminaljusticesystem #racism and #massincarceration against survivors of #domesticviolence and #coercivecontrol.
2/#VAWAs failures lie not only in its non-holistic, non-systemic approach to addressing #DV—not as #coercivecontrol and not in coordination with child safety risks, as it should be—but also in its methodology, assumptions, implementation etc. @thetakeaway @tanzinavega
3/Just because #VAWA is flawed doesn’t mean you throw the baby out with the bath water. Her theories are dangerous to #survivors and hide its misogynist underpinnings as they center #abuser needs over #survivor and #child #safety, #stability #strength. @TheTakeaway @tanzinavega
