In the mid-19th century secularists used the courts to begin to erode biblical gender roles and Christians retreated. 

Then in the 20th century they removed prayer and creation teaching from schools and replaced it with teachings of evolution - and again Christians retreated.
In the 50s,60s and 70s, secularists used the court to get rid of fornication laws and gave women the right to murder their own unborn children in their wombs and in the 2000s the court made gay marriage and transgenderism rights – and again Christians retreated.
The Bible tells us in 1 Peter 2:14 that God has established civil government “for the punishment of evildoers, and for the praise of them that do well”.  And how do we know what is evil and what is morally praiseworthy behavior? One answer.  The Bible.

A thread on the hegemony of science and its impact on humanistic philosophy:
Psychology and psychiatry have appropriated concepts that used to belong to the purview of philosophy. 1/13
Love, alienation, anxiety, despair - all these and more have been transformed into psychological constructs, susceptible to pathologization and depoliticization. Here is an example from bell hooks' 'All About Love':...2/13

Canadians have the honour of owning the world’s biggest conveyor of woman-hating, the Montreal-based website Porn Hub. The website is free to access, with no age restrictions and no restrictions on the defilement of women. Rape and torture videos abound...

1/ Kick-off question from @DJDevakumar in the launch of @TheLancet racism and health series @raceandhealth

What does #racism mean to you?

This made me reflect on my personal definition of racism so here goes 🧵
2/ To me personally I think of #racism as discrimination whether *by thought and/or action* based on skin colour or geographical place or culture or religion or language or social attitudes that never operates in isolation, which brings us to the concept of #intersectionality
3/ Racism is always compounded or diluted by other systems of oppression or privilege like #patriarchy #classism #homophobia.

When the doors are closed, only women advocate for women. Men do NOT care.

Case in point: Nadler’s close ally Scott Stringer is a known sexual predator, and he’s gotten no criticism for it from Schumer and the boys club. #NY12……
Nadler defended him after the allegations came out, framing Stringer as the victim. Who cares about the actual victims in this story, right?…

⬇️ 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”…

@albertaparent @PipSyyyv @Kaelwritesblog @mollyfleck @clhubes Actually thats true.

The brain can be convinced that voices are happening when they’re not, amputated limbs are present, physical impossibilities are real, and its all because of two trainable parts of our wiring: The subconscious and the logical processing center. 🧵
@albertaparent @PipSyyyv @Kaelwritesblog @mollyfleck @clhubes Some people need help w physical processes for birth and thats okay and good and normal and I’m thankful for #Science and the #medicalcommunity which makes assistance and even accessibility better for everybody.
All birth stories are good.
You can not fuck up birth…
@albertaparent @PipSyyyv @Kaelwritesblog @mollyfleck @clhubes There ARE things we can do to prepare for the physical, mental, and environmental challenges that will be unexpected, change very quickly, and involve a complete loss of control which you just kinda have to TRUST won’t kill you. Birth is like falling asleep w trust you won’t die.

#sisterAbhaya case final verdict tomorrow. found drowned in convent well 1992 mar 27. Suspects #padre #godman kottor, #nun seffi (pic below) confessed under truth serum but cji Balakrishnan conveniently ruled evidence inadmissible. Seffi got hymenoplasty! #joemon pursued case 1/2
Seffi, kottoor and another godman puthrakkayil confessed to 3way in kitchen, which abhaya stumbled upon. So seffi beat her over the head with an axe handle and they dumped her in well.

Seffi hymenoplasty to 'prove' virginity! No patriarchy, no sir! 2/2
Joemon doggedly pursued case after Michael the investigating cop destroyed evidence, later both ib and cbi both gave up. So 28 years later, verdict. I'm hoping abhaya gets justice. Her parents died waiting. Is justice possible in India against the global might of vatican?

Brahmanical #patriarchy continues to be one of the most misunderstood terms of our times. People often argue as to why we must call for 'Smashing Brahmanical Patriarchy' and not just 'Smashing Patriarchy'. #FIIExplains

But in India, caste and gender intersect together to uphold the Brahmanical social order. Professor Uma Chakravarti, coined the term in her 1993 paper 'Conceptualising Brahmanical Patriachy in Early India - Gender, Caste, Class and State'.

She defined brahmanical patriarchy as 'the need for effective sexual control over women to not only maintain patrilineal succession but also caste purity, the institution unique to Hindu society'.

A constitutional crisis is brewing in Kenya. It has a lot to do with #genderquotas and #patriarchy. Here's why:

#Thread September is PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) Awareness Month!
The patriarchal gender bias in healthcare care practice and medicinal research has a negative impact on our well-being!
The impact is huge and diverse! People living with PCOS find it challenging to navigate through the bias that distorts research, diagnosis, and treatment. According to research, PCOS is fast becoming a modern epidemic, especially in Asia.
So what is it? PCOS is a common endocrine disorder that affects people with ovaries, with 20-25% womxn in India and around 1 in 10 womxn worldwide affected by it.

Oh did you want a long early morning rant #thread? Yes? No? Too late, here it is. Let’s talk about how the insistence on returning to college football not only a reflection of racism & capitalism, but also the deep failures of patriarchal culture. Ready? Let’s go.
Ok so yesterday I talked a bit about racism & capitalism in the organized sport industry particularly football. Here’s that thread. Note: I’m sure there are scholars who have written about this, this is just my Black feminist quick take.
So football relies heavily on the athletic performance of Black men for the entertainment & profit of predominantly white men. In the NFL when players protest, they’re told to shut up & play or that they make enough money so they shouldn’t care (racist capitalist perspective).

A hashtag appeared on panel asking for public hangings of rapists. I did initial data comparison of people who participated in this hashtag and various other hashtags. I found that
1) 27% users who were propagating "a woman shouldn't travel without a Mehram escorting her"
demanded public hangings of rapists.
2) 13% of "Travel with Mehram" advocates used abusive word "Randi" in their recent tweets while addressing some women on social media.
3) Out of users of "Randi" word in their recent tweets, 13% asked for public hangings
4) 12% users who contributed to a hashtag glorifying Khalid's act of killing a person in the court, demanded public hangings of rapists.
5) 8% users who labelled #AuratMarch2020 as Fahashi and Aurat Barbadi march, now asked for public hangings of rapists

New testament of #patriarchy

Abusing a woman is not, catching a woman in drug abuse is #Patriarchy.

Crime against right-wing women is not Patriarchial, only left and the minority will be covered.

We will enjoy Tehlkas by Tarun and Wiring by Vinodua n All the shit otherwise!
We enjoy all the perks of Patriarchy until it stops me doing drugs, abusing the armed forces, sleep around with the underworld, target the actual liberal society!

We can be hypocritical all the time by generalizing men, and whitewashing crimes done in the name of Women rights!
We can be selective about political parties
-can chose woman to fight for
-Can chose them on the basis of their religion, caste and class.
Our parameters are set, we won't talk about ”Islamic Patriarchy”at all.

(*won't get funds for the campaign)

Good that you're joining some of the dots now, George. Let's join some more shall we?

The affluent are indeed the main driver of the crises we face. Monbiot is amongst those affluent people.

What's your salary George? How much are your assets valued? How many houses do you own?
Key recent paper outlining why affluence is a major driver of resource use & pollutant emissions.

Wiedmann et al (2020) Scientists’ warning on affluence. Nature Communications 11, 3107.…
"The affluent citizens of the world are responsible for most environmental impacts and are central to any future prospect of retreating to safer environmental conditions".

"the structural imperative for growth in competitive market economies inhibits necessary societal change".
