1/ Le 1er janvier, des millions de femmes du Kerala ont formé un “Mur des femmes” pour l’accès des femmes à un temple hindou. Un thread sur ce que j’ai appris sur #Sabarimala
2/ Je ne connaissais pas grand chose au dossier, mais travaillant sur #genre et #religion, ça m’intéressait, surtout que certain.e.s y ont vu des parallèles possibles avec l’accès des femmes au Mur de Jérusalem blogs.timesofisrael.com/from-the-wall-…
3/ ... comme la violence physique contre les femmes qui veulent prier dans un espace religieux très contrôlé, ou le recours à l’arbitrage de la Cour suprême

Hmmmm, I am running too many threads already. But how about a "#FBPE-people attacking Tories"-thread? It's clearly a worthwhile endeavor. Feel free to pitch in.
Exhibit one is a complete Role Playing Game adventure. Man. did they have an anti-tory blast with that one:

Just copying in from old threads. Exhibit two #FBPE-person stomping a tory. Well-deserved I might add.

The #threats invaded my #Brexit #genre #thread. It was supposed to be mostly fun and #FBPE-games, but the threads turn it grim . So. I'll establish this new thread of uses of the threat as genre in the Brexit debate. It won´t be a lot of fun. #forensic #linguistics #genrestudies
Before I get going, a little piece of research dissemination on threats by my good colleagues @TanyaKaroli and @MarieEBM:

Exhibit A: @cliodiaspora has had to bear a truckload of abuse and quite a few threats for her engagement. I admire her intensely for sticking to her guns. This one is ugly in many many different ways.

1) Un petit guide sur les #SocialJusticeWarriors (#SJW) suite aux événements de #Tolbiac et tout le marasme qui s’en est suivi, parce que je suis assez étonnée de la méconnaissance des gens en #France et sur #Twitter. Il reste central aux #US depuis quelques années. (à dérouler)
2) Car oui, comme beaucoup de mouvements culturels celui-ci nous vient directement des US et du #Canada, et met la lutte militante pour le progrès social en son centre, tjs sous le prisme d’un rapport de force à une minorité : #genre, #handicap, #racisme, #sexisme, etc…
3) Donc si t’es twittos #anglophone tu vas sûrement rigoler, parce que tu t’es déjà retrouvé embourbé dans des échanges impossibles et que tu connais exactement le sujet… Tu pourras donc passer ton chemin, car tu n’apprendras rien de spé.

After an intense vote (see below), it was decided that my 5k-followers celebration thread should be on genre and fake news. A topic which I, for fairly strange non-standard reasons, happen to know a little bit about.

Thanks to all who played in particular The Usual Suspects, @IAmMardikins (who suggested the winning topic; hail the chairman!) @Dogtrouser_PI @Ferretgrove @TanyaKaroli @MarieEBM and a truckload of others. Anyway. Here goes:
A thread on genre and fake news. 1/

This happened last September and I never got a notice or email from @Smashwords

I'm glad they clarified the process, but I'm still confused by some stuff.
Only #Smashwords and #AmazonKindle allow step-relations?

I don't understand why.

Example is "In the Distance There is Light" by #HarperBliss

One of our WIPs is a reworking of Greek Mythology. GM has nearly all taboos, yet is carried everywhere!
Other markets are "officially" banning Bestiality, but let it slide under the name of Paranormal.

@smashwords (and Amazon, apparently) claims mermaids, werewolves, bigfoot, or aliens are NOT considered "Beastiality".

A short thread on #RemainerNow-acceptance. To my pleasure, I have noticed that when someone declares herself or himself a @RemainerNow the recepetion from the Remainer-community and particularly the #FBPE communitiy has been largely enthusiastic. 1/
However there invariably seem to be somebody that is so furious about the whole Brexit ordeal that they fire all cannons upon meeting a #Remainernow. I find that at the same time completely understandable and a very dumb move. 2/
It's completely understandable because Brexit is such an enormous act of stupidity on a national and international level that it must get tempers rising. In particular, of course, tempers with continuous remainers who have seen Brexit for the shambles it is from the start. 3/

So, while we are resting on the #FBPE-laurels after a hot chase of #WATON, a few very preliminary thoughts on #Brexit and #genre. As my handle indicates, I came to #Twitter with an intent to talk about genre #research, but I have ended up talking about Brexit instead. 1/
Or is that indeed "instead"? A central finding of #genrestudies is that #genre is well nigh omnipresent in human culture, cognition, and communication. Thus, we think, react, and act in genre patterns, and we all have a surprising aptitude for understanding and using genre. 2/
Thus, it may never have entered your mind while discussing #Brexit (or, hopefully, the lack thereof) that you are constantly using and discussing #genre. But you are. Allow me to show you. 3/

Cool, j'ai un exposé à faire sur un article de Virginie Julliard : #ThéorieDuGenre : comment débat-on du genre sur Twitter ?
Fun car ce sont mes binômes qui ont choisi le sujet et que ça tombe direct dans mes intérêts. Je vais faire un LT, ça me servira de notes !
Hypothèse du papier : Twitter produit un débat spécifique, en raison de ses propriétés & de la manière dont les utilisateurs s'en saisissent
