Now, I'm not necessarily old, but I've been about long enough to see how civil rights movements operate & try to get their message across in an effective way. As the world evolves, so do the tactics & the approaches.

These movements need to win people over & get support
and often, that involves education, getting big names on board, advertising campaigns, fund raisers etc.

However, NEVER have I seen in various rights movements, the level of vitriol, aggression & violence I have witnessed from activists & allies who support trans rights
such aggression often arises when there is opposition or even just concern, about what is being asked for. Questions/concerns raised are often met with intense resistance, with stock phrases auch as, "there is no debate" or, "trans women are women, period" and "my existence

What Sort of Hatred:

What sort of hatred issues death threats and warnings of violence against women who defend themselves, who speak up to protect their hard won rights? What sort of hatred attacks women for stepping forward and declaring a valid opinion?
What sort of hatred actively fights to erode sex segregated spaces despite statistics showing how prevalent male violence really is and which remains so with transition? What sort of hatred throws aside concerns about men demanding access to such spaces?
What sort of hatred hangs a dead rat on the door to a women’s rape relief centre along with graffitiing death threats on the windows? What sort of hatred wages a decades long campaign to have them shut down and funding cut putting many women at risk of having no support?

As a person of color in this country, everywhere I go I’m forced to consider if people around me wish me harm, or are okay with my being harmed.

So every time I find out people I know and love are okay with people who are okay with this, it’s a kick in the gut. /1
Complicity with complicity is complicity.

Last year I was profoundly hurt to hear a friend declare their intent to avoid conversing with their relatives about their continued support of an administration which is actively seeking to harm brown people.
It was 9am. I went outside, sat on the ground,
and cried.

I cried because if my friends—who know and love me, who consider me a friend, who say they want good for people of all backgrounds—won’t speak up for me:

Who will?

I REALLY need for MEN to think about this.

I'm old. I remember this stuff.

How It Used To Be

It took three minutes for the TV to warm up.

Nobody owned a purebred dog.
A quarter was a decent allowance & made with real silver.

You'd reach into a muddy gutter for a penny - made with real copper. (I still do...giggle).
Your Mom wore stockings that came in two pieces - one for each leg.

You got your windshield cleaned, oil checked & gas pumped, without asking, all for free, every time.

You didn't pay for air & you got trading stamps, too.
Laundry detergent had free glasses, dishes or towels hidden inside the box.

And don't forget Crackerjacks! A prize in every box.

Teachers threatened to keep kids back a grade if they failed...and they did it.

When a 57 Chevy was everyone's dream car.

People "went steady."

#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.

I just finished a stint in @Twitter jail for "hate speech" (I quoted Jay-Z's song "The Ballad of OJ & used the N word instead of some euphemism like ni99a).

Whoever is in charge of "hate speech" at @Twitter is more dedicated to silencing black folk than actual hate speech.
@Twitter In any case.

Recently I gave a brief, incomplete primer on white supremacy. Any time I discuss racism, I’m obligated to confront my own internal biases, and check my own internalized #misogyny.
@Twitter What follows is directed to any men reading this. Any women reading this: please feel free to add to, amend, or correct this diatribe. The LAST thing I want to do is mansplain misogyny to women.

First of all, all #patriarchy is sexism.

Folks - Let's talk about race, privilege, identity, and what constitutes a legitimate claim to knowledge in the study of Indian history. THREAD #AcademicChatter #AcademicTwitter #history #India
I've been accused in the last day or so of being a white women talking about Indian history. This mistakes a key point: My authority to speak about specific aspects of the Indian past does not rest on the color of my skin or on my gender.
I speak about Indian history as a trained scholar. We've been over this ad nauseam - I read Sanskrit, Indo-Persian, Braj Bhasha, Hindi & Urdu. I hold a PhD in South Asian Studies. I'm an Assistant Professor of History at a research university. I publish peer-reviewed scholarship.

Day 1: QUEER - widely used among the community to refer to the spectrum of non-heterosexual +/ non-cisgender ppl as a shorthand. Important - this is RECLAIMED language that was/is still used as a hate term. #pride #education @QMUNITY @sogiUBC Follow along ———> #100daysofQueer
DAY 2: HETERONORMATIVE - social roles & structures that reinforce idea that heterosexuality is the presumed norm and is superior to other sexual orientations. #pride #education #sogi #humanrights @QMUNITY @sogiUBC @HRC

In my neighbourhood there was a serial sex predator breaking into women's homes and sexually assaulting them in their own beds. It's bad enough that women routinely have to take more precautions than men to do basic things like go for a walk or a jog. 1/ #sexualassault #crime
I can't describe to you what it's like to be afraid to do something as necessary as falling asleep in your own bed at night. This is what happened to many women in my neighbourhood. 2/ #VAW
At the time this was going on, a lot of women talked to me about their fear, about being afraid in their own homes, being unable to fall asleep or stay asleep in their own beds. There were a lot of exhausted women in my neighbourhood. 3/ #crime #fear

@PeteButtigieg really can't afford to play to #misogyny when the majority of Dem voters are women.
This was an ill-considered cheap shot at his competition when EVERY senator running called--rightly-- for Franken's resignation.
Stop blaming women for men's actions.

Unsurprising that Matthews is fixated on Franken two years later. He has issues.

This is a very important topic to understand. Deep #misogyny is the current underlying much of what we are seeing and experiencing. stitcher.com/podcast/voxs-t…
So much about what is going on right now is tied to deep misogyny.

Via EUObserver via @Billbrowder and @lauferlaw Opposition MPs in Romania have introduced a #humanrights sanctions law named after late Russian activist, #Magnisky

@Billbrowder @lauferlaw @maddow @ACLU @HRC @amnesty @UNHumanRights @CJR @ICIJorg @OCCRP @guardian @NatashaBertrand #Romanian law is to be named after #Magnitsky, a Russian #antiCorruption activist who died in prison in 2009 and in whose honour Britain, Canada, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, and the US have already passed similar ‘Magnitsky Acts’
@latimes @washingtonpost @sfchronicle @PolitiZoom
@Billbrowder @lauferlaw @maddow @ACLU @HRC @amnesty @UNHumanRights @CJR @ICIJorg @OCCRP @guardian @NatashaBertrand The fact #Romania, which holds the #EUpresidency until 1 July, was moving ahead on a national level would lend “symbolic support” to the EU-level action, an EU diplomat said.

There are no doubt some brill clinicians at #BIGSPD19 + more importantly service users bravely speaking out. But what appears to be missing is consideration of how the lack of services +care for the majority of patients that is lamented is produced by ideas of ‘BPD’ it promotes.
Rather than have conferences for specific diagnoses,which exclude as many people as they include but make attendees feel like vanguards, we need whole workforce, trans-diagnostic commitment to depth help for those experiencing the kind of sphlintering anxiety that can wreck life.
That is whole workforce training on things like:
- dissociation and other extreme states
- the profoundly complex and human ways that we can try to show others the often unspeakable pain we are in
- staff sadism and it’s enactments
- scaffolding alongside trauma work
- hope etc

1/ Just briefly wanted to talk about some of my concerns about how the media is covering the 2020 Women Candidates but I'll start with 2016. #MondayMotivation #mondaythoughts #GroupThink #WhiteMaleMedia #Bias
#Misogyny #Racism #Hypocrisy
2/Its problematic that our media is dominated by white males who work in groupthink (Look at #TheMuellerReport's groupthink 'conclusion' coverage). It's especially problematic when it comes to covering white male candidates vs female candidates, female & male candidates of color.
3/Thankfully we have news programs like @JoyAnnReid that are incredibly inclusive. I'd like to see more news programs follow her model, but even w/ that we still need MORE diverse voices on TV that we haven't really seen yet. We need more statistics based coverage less punditry.

This the last tweet I’m going to engage with specific #DezNat things. I’ll still call out hateful individuals, but really this is shite behavior. Don’t try and deny it.Most of y’all are homophobic, misogynistic, transphobic, racist individuals — whether you “think” you are or not
Feel free if you’ve received hate from #Deznat to post it here. I figure we need a thread about it. #callthemout
Jus because someone calls out your shitty behavior doesn’t make them hateful. @lennie_mennie And see how deftly he dismisses the harassment of feminists and the meme that was made? #misogyny

Good morning Twitter friends. I’m still in bed sick, but possibly on the mend at last after 4 days. Last night @tropigalia & @laura_luna asked me to do a #thread on the devaluing & misrecognition of #femme relationships so here we go.
First, if you don’t know what femme is, read this, this thread will still be here: bustle.com/articles/16608…
So to be clear, femme is a queer gender expression not tied to sex or gender identity. Femme is also not exclusively about appearance, but this thread will emphasize appearance bc I’m going to talk about the way femme relationships are read, thus based on visual cues.

Inexplicably there are still folks in my mentions more than a year later claiming that only #Gillibrand called for Franken to resign when 32 Democratic senators + Bernie Sanders did so.
Franken could have stayed and faced hearings.
He didn't.
What #Harris said was most succinct.
Minority Whip Patty Murray was most damning in her thread:
My own Dem senator, Bob Casey, made the important point that Democratic men had to be held to the same standard as GOP men.

35 Democratic senators called for @AlFranken to resign.

#SpoilerAlert : Every senator running for president in 2020 is on the list, male and female.

So if you're still blaming a woman for a man's actions, your #misogyny is showing.
politi.co/2ixfATF
Al Franken resigned a year ago,replaced with a much more progressive woman who is not accused of non-consensual sexual misconduct with 8 women & who was elected in a landslide.

If you're still dividing Dems with your misogynist disinformation, you're working for the GOP.
We honestly can't afford misogynists in the Democratic party in 2020.
Not men, not women.

The best chance to beat Trump is a woman candidate.

Don't send me your Franken conspiracy theories.
Just try to move into the 21st century.
