#URGENT #911 Over the course of the next few weeks, I need twitter to show out for me. My children and I, WE NEED A MIRACLE. We are in a crisis of incredible proportions because of an abusive man and the systems that protect men liIke him.

Please keep reading this #THREAD
I CANNOT fight back alone. I desperately need the help of Twitter. And I dont have much time.

A hearing date has been set for OCTOBER 25th.

This is it. The day it will be decided how much longer my 10 & 12 yrold will suffer abuse, how much longer we'll know that man's torment.
What that means is that I have WEEKS left to get anything, everything I can think of that may help and protect us to the lawyer.

I have been working around the clock for months, fighting desperately to protect my children. I've given everything I have and more of what I don't.

Two days ago I talked about #whitesupremacy. Yesterday I talked about #patriarchy.

Combine those two toxins and you get misogynoir, the vile poison suffered by women of color, and more specifically, black women.
Yesterday I joked and told a friend the amount of rum it would take for me to discuss #misogynoir would put me in a coma. I wish that was funny. I don’t want to write about this sober. I’m not qualified to discuss this with nuance and deftness.

Also, I am out of rum.
Coined by a queer black feminist Moya Bailey, misogynoir lies at the heart of all of what we think of as intersectional.

If you could imagine a Venn diagram that displays the overlap of racism, sexism, transphobia, & homophobia, the cruel bullseye at its center is misogynoir.

CIRCULATE WIDELY: The head of Winthrop residential house at Harvard, where approximately 1/12 of the undergrads live, has decided to defend a serial rapist in court. He refuses to remove himself from a position of power in a place where survivors live.…
Speaking of #MeToo and minoritized communities: this man is using his Blackness as a shield from taking responsibility for how his professional choices impact the well-being of sexual assault survivors IN THEIR HOME. #misogynoir
I guess the lesson here is that one of the "privileges" of being @harvard is that you too can live in a residential house run by a high power, barrier breaking Black lawyer who makes his money defending rapists because #diversity!!!!

A3. Yes. If I ask not to be given pain meds (because I want to know a root cause) then no other option is presented.

If I ask for them I'm treated like an addict- by people who forget that addicts also need addiction treatment & so are ALSO patients. #MedTraumaChat
A3. People don't get how awful it is to be in pain 24 hours a day, every day. To not be able to sleep.

Or to be able to sleep but not get rest from sleep. Because pain.

A3. And to know that one little pill a day, or a joint is all that stands between you being in poverty & unable to earn a living? And a decent income.
