One thing I want to say to skeptics of #Cuties who are basing their judgement off how exhibitionist the dance moves are in it, especially in the final competition performance scene, is that while it can be okay to draw boundaries for kids wrt exhibitionism, 1/12
there will be instances where girls cross lines adults don't want them to cross, and there are appropriate and inappropriate ways to rebuke them; it is inappropriate to let boys/men feel entitled to exhibitionist girls'/women's bodies which, like all girls'/women's bodies, 2/12
boys/men do not have dominion over! Dance and sexual relationships have features in common, but not all of the body language that can be seen in both should be seen as explicitly sexual in all instances. While I believe that explicit sexual exhibitionism can occur in dance, 3/12

If you can’t beat the Boys, play with the Girls and become a champion. Is this fair? #WomenSayNo

1/ I want to focus on one word, and one word only. That word is fairness. Not gender. Not transgender. Not activism. Not rights. Not perception. Simply fairness. That’s the issue here, and that’s where we need to keep our focus.
2/ The question is not why a man identifies as a woman (or vice versa).

The question is this: Is it fair for a biological male to compete against biological females?

We have been running the #MyGrandmothersWildestDream campaign for a while now. This campaign seeks to celebrate #herstories and the women who came before us. The campaign aims to applaud the amazing women who’ve blazed trails. #AkiliDadaConversations #ThreadThursday
We want to inspire YOU to submit your story, inspire YOU to celebrate the matriarchs in your life. #MyGrandmothersWildestDream #AfricanWomenLead #CreateHerstory #TellHerStory
Often, women’s input goes unmentioned, uncelebrated, unrecognized. This is entrenched in the system, enabled by the patriarchal society we live in.

MAY 28 MENSTRUAL HYGEINE DAY
PERIOD IN PANDEMIC

Millions of girls are ashamed of their period

They do not have social support, access to supplies/materials/ facilities.

Many girls miss 1 to 2 months of school to menstruate

#NaijaOBGYNdoctor

#menstruationmatters Image
Many women loose working hours & income due to menses

Girls/women still see their PERIOD in PANDEMIC & the challenges are still there

You can be a voice on these themes
1. Reduce VAT/cost of sanitary material
2. Provide facilities for dignified menstruation in schools
3. Provide women with the support they need to menstruate safely at work

4. De stigmatise periods by letting both girls & boys know more about it

5. Teach girls even before they start on Menstrual Hygeine

Good morning @childrensplace: Respectfully calling on you to design clothes for #boys & #girls that promote excellent #values. The dangerous #dumbingdown of boys! Why promote dark characters that wield #WEAPONS? (#ElPasoshooter) Why promote laziness & unhealthy eating? 1/x
#Boys: Calling on you to stop promoting dark characters that WIELD #WEAPONS. Why promote #gangster #ninjas wearing red bandanas & mouth masks in a country w/ #gangs? What kind of a man will a boy who wears a "Bro by Day Ninja By Night" pajama set (featuring junk food) be? 2/x

The sound of #women determined to defend our hard won sex-based rights must never be underestimated.

The room is packed, the noise is deafening.

The Women's Liberation Movement is very much alive!

Meghan Murphy states 'I have an overzealous commitment to authenticity'

'Women and Girls are being told the can't have boundaries'

#WPUKLondon
'Feminists insist on the 'reactionary' category of #Woman'

'An analysis of power; who holds it, how and why is lacking'

'United we stand, divided we fall'

'We still need single-sex spaces and the right to self-organise'

#Musings

She had just gotten home after a long day at the office, her mind was in a clutter, her relationship had just ended because she refused to have #sex before marriage.

She could feel her chest tighten everytime she thought about him.

She still loved him deeply.

⏭️
As she stepped into her apartment, #phcn struck, the heat built up so fast she dove into the bathroom, relaxing only when the cold shower drenched her.

She could hear her phone ringing but she wasn't about to interrupt the only peaceful moment she had experienced today.

⏭️
When she was done, she wiped herself dry, picked up her phone & saw it was a missed call from him, her heart lurched again, her mouth went dry, her whole body screamed in desperate need of his company, why was this no-sex thing such an issue, she mulled.

Should she give in?

So the @cpsuk are allowing teen girls & women to be sexually tortured on film. I have evidenced this horror on my blog. Proving much is non-consensual/ DV victims/performers who suffer mental health issues/physical harm to breasts /anus/genitalia etc bbc.co.uk/news/technolog… #VAWG
Also, a significant audience of online violent pornography are children and teenagers. #Pornhub hosts thousands of sexually violent videos that have millions of views. Many of these videos are 'home-made' and single males upload their own sexual offences against girls & women

In 2015, Olivia Onyemaobi raised a campaign against sexual abuse. She found out that some girls get abused by men who offer to help them get sanitary pads. To solve the problem, she started @PadupC
In Nigeria, some girls sometimes stay out of school during their menstrual cycle because they can’t afford sanitary pads. While some others use tissue, dry grasses, leaves and rags during their menstrual cycle. Just because they can not afford sanitary pads. #Thread
#VUNBlog
Some men cash in on this, by abusing young girls sexually just to provide them sanitary pads. @PadupC makes affordable, washable and reusable sanitary pads. Pad-Up menstrual kits are super thin with high absorption rate. #VUNBlog #VictorUgooNjokuBlog #womenshealth #lifestyle

Wow. I'm blown away by the response! I want to echo the point that has been made about how long somebody has played being irrelevant, whether its 20 years, 10 years, or 5 months. I've played with many women and girls over the years and have loved having them at my table!
#playon
I really don't understand the push back. I don't understand the comments I see about girls not being "real nerds" or only playing bc their boyfriend plays or they want cosplay likes or whatever. It's all nonsense. Is it so hard to believe that girls play because they WANT to? smh

@SurvivorsnetBtn @RASASC_London @survivorstrust @Danvers07943910 @ObjectUK @BrightonSurvivorsNET “In the light of a highly disturbing increase of #transphobia locally & nationally…” IF everything anybody says or does is #transphobia, of course you can say it is rising. Any reputable statistics?
@SurvivorsnetBtn @RASASC_London @survivorstrust @Danvers07943910 @ObjectUK “…so the date @Womans_Place_UK event feels like a concerted effort to make #trans ppl, & particularly #transwomen, feel #intimidated and #invalidated” Is it the position of SN that the sensitivities of #transwomen mean that #democracy should be suspended any time they say so?

For #IWD2018 a look at why Prime Minister Modi's #BetiBachaoBetiPadhao (Educate girls to Save them) program will not stop India's mass #femicide until these issues are addressed. Link & THREAD.
opendemocracy.net/5050/rita-bane…
1/ Prime Minister Modi’s ‘Beti Bachao, Beti Padao’ (Save the Girl, Educate the Girl) programme, launched in January 2015, was the first time since India's independence in 1947 that the Indian government had raised the issue of female genocide in a public campaign.
2/ British census data in the 18th century had attributed India’s skewed #sexratio to female #infanticide and other forms of #femicide, such as sati, but after independence subsequent governments remained bizarrely indifferent to the issue even as it reached epidemic proportions.
