I'm 45 yo lesbian. I left my country because of homophobia (it's not just mocking, harrasment, lesbians were/are raped in the name of "re-education"). I was told by men that I haven't met the right man yet. Now men who identify as lesbians tell me I haven't tried their girldick. Image
2)That gay man doesn't feel threatened by straight women who identify as gays & because he doesn't feel threatened he has no problem to let men in the lesbian spaces, organizations, events, groups, apps etc. He supports our erasure. The only letter in LGB he cares about is G. Image

The other day, I was asking my grandmother about her childhood. That got me thinking - what will MY future grandchildren say when I tell them about my childhood? Thread about how I imagine this will go:

#SexMatters #SexNotGender #LetWomenSpeak #RespectMySex
2/12

Future Grandchild (FG): What was life like when you were young?

Me: Well… misogyny was celebrated, stereotypes encouraged & healthy kids embarked on lifelong medical nightmares.

FG: What? Did that actually happen?

Me: Oh, believe me, it did.

#WomenWontWheest #misogyny
3/12

FG: How?

Me: There were these men who wore dresses, liked pink and did other stereotypical feminine things. They decided they were ACTUALLY women.

FG: You’re joking!

Me: I’m not!

"Prostitution is the oldest profession"
It depends how you define it. Humans have exchanged money and goods for sex for thousands of years, and indeed it seems that any society that begins to develop material wealth soon develops some form of prostitution.
It is said that humans have been trading sex for food since thousands of years. It is also said that some animals trade sex for food.
Nothing changes the fact that misogyny & male dominance has existed since millions of years.
#feminist
Hunting, gathering, toolmaking, and farming are some of the oldest professions. Sumerian records dating back to ca. 2400 BCE are the earliest recorded mention of prostitution as an occupation. These describe a temple-brothel operated by Sumerian priests in the city of Uruk.

#NZ This is a long thread on the issue of harassment & threats made against #WomenInLeadership, primarily #WomenInPolitics.

⬇️ Reviews incidents over time, highlights the danger & escalation of #misogyny & the real life consequences on the personal & our democratic institutions.
This thread is being woven, the week Michael Cruickshank was sentenced to jail in #NZ for threatening to blow our #WomanPrimeMinister’s head off & to “..wipe you off this f---planet”- Also arrested this week Richard Sivell who has allegedly been posting threatening messages.
Here you can take a look at #OnlineAbuse ~ ⬇️ is a really useful article by @shesource & @WMCLive that names online hostile behaviour, how it is that #Women are targeted, & explains why “online harassment exists on a continuum with offline violence”

I’m so sick of people pussy footing about this new wave of 🏳️‍⚧️ flag draped misogyny. Stop calling men women. Stop referring to men as she/her. Stop apologising for abusive men & inferring they’re victims of the “system”. They ARE the system! If men weren’t demanding entry to 1/
women & girls spaces & sports by claiming they “feel like a woman” then there’d be no “system”. There’d be no organisations pushing to erase women’s sex based rights. There’d be no demands to erase the words WOMAN & MOTHER in policy & law. Women would not be losing their 2/
rights to #FreedomOfSpeech & #FreedomOfAssembly if men who like to think they’re women weren’t turning up to every woman’s space & gathering to colonise, dominate, control, terrorise & shut them down. They’re adults. They’re responsible for their actions. They know exactly 3/

A thread on toxic "activists"
A sector of the #Alberta activist community are known toxic bullies. If a new Activist or a woman is being bullied you can bet with accuracy it will be a known clique in Alberta. 1/6
They get someone from their group to publically shame an activist that they believe is getting too much traction outside their clique then send their lap dogs to attack that account publically and via DM. 2/6
#ToxicActivists
These people all seem to run websites that they want to drive traffic to. Popular content creators outside of their funnel are seen as taking clicks and ad revenue away from them. 3/6

Today marks ten years since my sister Sarah Gosling lost her life.

Sarah met Ian Hope in 2010 on Facebook and quickly they began a digital relationship. In no time they decided that Ian would ride up from Newcastle to Norfolk to collect her on his motorbike.

1/.
They did a ‘midnight flit’ and set up home in Newcastle - moving into the flat he’d previously shared with his former girlfriend.

Charming and ‘impulsive’ he’s convinced her that they were better off together.

She was unable to properly explain to her husband and kids...

2/.
...why she’d left. Phone calls were short and limited and when she visited them the visits were punctuated by texts and calls from Hope ‘just checking’.

By November 2010 her life had become one of walking into eggshells and trying to please him. He was checking her...
3/.

In the two decades that I interviewed, assessed and managed sexual offenders, both in the community & in custody, I must have assessed thousands of men. In that time, I assessed only one woman. The differences between female & male offending are that stark. #KeepPrisonsSingleSex
My friend, who also spent the last 40 years specialising in the assessment and management of sexual offenders said, “In just under 4 decades I have personally only encountered 4 female SOs”. Between us we have 60 years of combined practice & encountered only 5 female SOs!
Men who commit offences cannot be assessed by their chosen gender, because offending IS sex-based. #KeepPrisonsSingleSex #MaleViolence #NotOurCrimes #Misogyny #WarOnWomen

A reminder that for the 'hate crime' of sharing photos sent to us of Women = Adult Human Female protest stickers in Belfast, @SDLPlive Councillor @seamasbelfast defamed us as a hate account. @columeastwood do you think it's hateful to defend sex-based rights & language? #AE22
@SDLPlive @SeamasBelfast @columeastwood UUP's @BeattieDoug thought so too at first, 'til women from the network we belong to (& @DreyfusJames!) told him why #peacefulprotest like stickering is the ONLY way for many women to protest the erosion of our rights, spaces & language, thanks to the #chillingeffect created
Here's Seamas's defamatory tweet, trying to stifle debate on women's rights, calling our followers bots. When they replied #notabot, he blocked them! #seamasblockswomen What will you do about this, @columeastwood? Voters are angry & want to know. #AE22

Figured it’d make sense for me to lay out my theory on controversial tweets because I feel like it’s 1) misunderstood 2) interesting to people (“why does he do this?”)

1. Sorry to disappoint you but I am not the second coming of @sweatystartup - I don’t know much about that guy
but I know enough to say that I think different. Also, Twitter/social media isn’t how I make money. I don’t tweet to increase my following. When you sell childrens toys to educator in particular, it’s probably not net profitable for me to tweet most of what I write
2. I tweet what I honestly believe. I get some stuff wrong and I sometimes change my mind. One of the great things about Twitter is that if I’m wrong and I tweet it I’m going to find out. I subject my thinking to criticism via Twitter for this reason. I end up long-term right!

"Increasingly, experts have identified misogyny as one such ideology that motivates violence and can be a component of far-right extremism."

everytownresearch.org/report/misogyn…
"In addition to motivating deadly and violent behavior on its own, misogyny in the US also has well-documented ties to other extremist movements, whose far-right supporters have both adopted misogynist attitudes and used hatred of women to recruit new supporters."
"The first section of this report examines the ties between misogyny and far-right extremism, and how their association leads to the radicalization of their respective adherents."

I wonder whose bright idea it was that if a #vagina managed penetrative #sexual activity, it must be pliable to #insertion of the speculum 😒. Whoever that was definitely disregarded the physiology of sexual #arousal & vaginal changes in the moment that facilitate #penetration.
@vagina_museum shows that everyone's apparatus is different then how can #Gynecology stick to a one size fits all model? #publichealth should strive to develop minimally invasive self administered #screening tests & #gynaecologist must #research on making procedures comfortable.
researchgate.net/publication/22…
This shows that topical #anesthetic agents reduce #pain and #discomfort during speculum manipulation. Why can't the usage of topical #anesthesia be a #standard process in #Gynecology? Why such blatant disregard for #patient #comfort? 😠 #misogyny much?

2. Public expenditure on State Pensions in the UK is among the lowest in the OECD; this reflects the fact that the main state pension for current pensioners is nearly £40 per week less than the government’s own poverty threshold (the means-tested minimum guarantee Pension Credit)
3. The new Single Tier Pension is just above the single rate of Pension Credit but due to transitional rules, it will be decades before women generally receive as much state pension as men.

I receive abuse pretty much on a daily basis for being an outspoken nurse.
I've been called fat, which is odd as my dog is my profile pic.
I've had every other insult including death threats that I should be hanged.
I've been accused of killing cancer patients. Of pushing 1/

The list is endless, but, guess what?
They will never silence me because I feel compelled as my role of nurse to crush the disinformation 2/

Let's get controversial

It's gotten clear that "straight pornography" is at least 75% better than 'gay pornography', as the latter has turned stale, repetitive and truly predictive

So, from time to time, I like to dwell and see what new enticing ways the straights have to offer
And personally, as many sex-positive individuals, favor the genre #GangBang as one of most alluring in the realm of "deep sexual fantasies"

But, I have noticed that in straight porn, theses scenes have become very uncomfortable to watch, because of the excessive slapping/hitting
Even though #GangBangs incorporate BDSM elements, roughness should not be the main aspect. Lines have blurred, as I am noticing this 'kink' becoming exponentially violent lately. One thing is "#RoughSex" and another is #misogyny

Hopefully things don't escalate and get toned down

Australian sex buyers are having a normal one, casually discussing the mass sexual exploitation of Asian women and poor foreign students, as well as how to get away with raping children. All on legal websites. But hey, "customers" like any other - right? internationalsexguide.nl/forum/showthre…
Also, sex buyers looooove what the #sexwork movement is doing. If they're loving you, you're not in the business of putting power into the hands of the seller. You can bet on that. Deregulation which is the current trend down under mostly benefits buyers & pimps and they know it.
Amazing that being pro #prostitution is cast as the anti-racist position when sex buyers are out there talking like this 👇 Women are not cuisines. And, duh, sex buyers know the women wouldn't touch them if they didn't desperately need money. Sex buying is classist violence too.

#Misogyny and #sexism in politics is real. As is the double standard faced by female candidates.

Take the case of Robyn Ingraham, the former Liberal Party candidate in the Nova Scotia constituency of Dartmouth South. 1/12

Ms Ingraham was acclaimed to be the Liberal candidate in her community in the run-up to 2021 #nselxn41

However shortly after the election was called Ms. Ingraham dropped out under mysterious circumstances citing it was her "decision" to drop out 2/12

Hindutva vs Academia: Why Scholars Built a Manual to Fight Harassment thequint.com/us-nri-news/hi…
The article ends with a quote from the man who heads COHNA and is a long-time, known harasser.

Note his bad-faith argument, that the field manual is silencing Hindus. This coming after quotes from multiple scholars who are Hindu about why they wrote this. Think about that.
We cover this in the field manual, including how Hindutva ideologues often target Hindus and how they often make bad-faith bias claims. Such activities hurt Hindus, South Asian Americans, and us all. hindutvaharassmentfieldmanual.org/badfaith
