I see Jonathan Willhoupervy is saying my 12yr old daughter is being abused and indoctrinated for simply stating that she doesn't want males in her female only spaces.

He is unhinged and clearly triggered by little girls saying no.

No means no, Jonathan.

On a positive note, my daughter got over 200 signatures from the women and men today, and was embraced, welcomed and treated with the utmost respect by all those who attended. I can't thank you all enough for the welcoming group we have all created. Thank you @ThePosieParker

My first 'memory' of Amitabh Bachchan was even before my memory formed.
When I was less than 2 years old, a domestic help used to take me to a cinema hall where Sholay was running (on the pretext of going on an evening walk).

And I made friends with Jai.

After a few years, when I knew movies were fun, I tagged with my mother and aunts to a show of The Great Gambler.

Midway through the movie, when Amitabh was getting beaten up, I got very scared and conned my mother into taking me home. 🤦🏽‍♂️

The result: my mom refused to take me to the movies. She left me home and went off to see Muqaddar ka Sikandar.

I cried so much that my grandpa used his contacts at the cinema to walk into the show, towards the end. I still remember watching Zohra die in Sikandar's arms.

In Bauchi, a 15 year-old-girl was raped repeatedly by 4 men to the point that she could barely walk & had to undergo surgery. Another 12-year-old girl was raped by 11 men in Jigawa.

As one of a small group of people (smaller for POCs) who has published significantly in race & disability studies, I get asked to do a lot of unpaid labor in the academy. As a person who struggles to say no, it’s really upsetting when people don’t take my first no as an answer.
White people & senior scholars: please don’t do this. Stop asking marginalized people to do so much work. Witness what we’re already doing. Witness the stress we’re under. And for the love of Beyoncé, don’t push when a multiply marginalized untenured scholar already said no!
