@ClareICHH @IrishTimes @RadQueersResist @Wheelie_Happy @tcddublin @daimbarrs @ilainabananas @AineMulloy I'm surpassed #ThankUNext,
now at 'Thanks But No Thanks We Don't Need White People Judging Whether Our Cause Has Merit Or If We Should Yield And Let Our "Success Or Contribution To Feminism" Be Erased *Just A Little Bit* To Make Ethnonationalists More Comfy With Their Mistakes'
@ClareICHH @IrishTimes @RadQueersResist @Wheelie_Happy @tcddublin @daimbarrs @ilainabananas @AineMulloy Also - our "success or contribution to feminism" shaped Irish constitution without having a vote. We *are* Irish Feminists - our core tenets of intersectionality don't even all exist in British/American Feminism.

If you just mean 'white feminists' say it with your whole chest.
@ClareICHH @IrishTimes @RadQueersResist @Wheelie_Happy @tcddublin @daimbarrs @ilainabananas @AineMulloy I have to say it's a bit more than having 'felt unrepresented' when POCs, Queer and Trans and Disabled women all...were.
That's not an emotion, that's a fact.
But it's v in-keeping with their view that if an 'Irish feminist' looks in the mirror - they'd be none of those things.

They couldn't find one #POC to remember for #RepealedThe8th.

Make no mistake, this is how we are stamped out of history created off our backs.

Because this is 'Remembering the Women Whose Campaigning Led to This Historic Voting Turnout' for posterity.
Sure, I didn't have even the startup loan, or the ability to source popup stores, or mass produce a single branded product behind a Middle Ireland four-letter name,

but @irishtatler still saw fit to include a photo of ppl wearing my merch in print? So why not give a voice?
Also, it is. CRIMINAL. that @JanetOS_ - included in #BBC100Women, a key rallying force behind ARC, blatantly and unceremoniously silenced for being too 'inconvenient' and diverse and honest in her approach to the ref because she'd been personally affected by it - wasn't included.

THREAD: After the #TreeOfLifeSynagogue #shooting, the #KrogerShooting before that, and the +14 bombs sent by the #MAGABomber, it's crucial that we call #RightWingTerrorism out for what it is, but we also clearly need to talk about #WhiteSupremacy in the 2018 election.
We celebrate the truly #HISTORIC number of #women and #POC running for office in 2018, but we also refuse to ignore the volume & range of explicit and implicit #racist attacks almost every single candidate of color has faced in this election. That's also #WhiteSupremacy in action
Let's be clear: #POC running for elected office have ALWAYS faced hurdles to victory defined by the strength of #StructuralRacism and our country's long-standing culture of #WhiteSupremacy. But 2018 has taken it to a new level.

I went to bed feeling betrayed--perhaps even enraged. I woke up, still feeling betrayed--but resolved. I still believe #AnitaHill. I still believe #ChristineBlaseyFord I still believe #survivors #women They have knocked us down, but not out. I still believe in the power of us.
Our perpetrators tried to stifle our voices too--and, WE ARE NOT GOING BACK. We will not be silenced or moved. Today, survivors will keep organizing, sharing our painful and hard truths until the very last hour, and then we'll take our fight to the ballot box.
Survivors matter and we do vote--and run for office too! We have been ignored, but not silenced #midterms A vote to support #Kavanaugh confirms more than one man, to the highest court in the land, you are also confirming #privilege #entitlement #injustice

Let's talk about the racism by "Vieno Vehko," pseudonymous assistant prof from a USA Midwestern university. This article is not simply about "millennials." It is about Whiteness & how White academics expect to teach students like themselves

#marginsci
The piece is racially loaded in a way White academics & students have missed in their critiques. The author explicitly takes swipe at young people- but not equally.She begins with skewering Susie for not looking up 'lexical' in the dictionary. #POC can pick up that Susie is White screengrab of article from
The fact that "Vehko" doesn't use racial/ cultural words to describe Susie is the first clue that, not only is Susie White, but Vehko is too. As you'll see in this thread, White people only remark on the race for #POC. But Vehko is also policing Susie's White femininity.

(1/11) When I say..."The people closest to the pain, should be the closest to the power, driving & informing the policymaking..." THIS is what I mean. (A) When I wanted to break cycles of #poverty by strengthening pathways to #graduation, preventing #dropout #MA7
(2/11) for expectant & #parenting #teens, (still the #1 reason girls drop out, even with unplanned pregnancies on the decline) I invited them to the table to share their stories, struggles & to inform the #BPS policy we developed to better support them.
(3/11) (B) When I wanted to better understand why we were seeing an increase in #bicyclist & motor vehicle collisions, I contacted @bostonbikeunion I invited them to share their stories & struggles, 4 hrgs later, we had a crash data report & the 1st sideguard ord. in the country

#BREAKING:Congress MUST investigate why #POC are subjected to government #surveillance SIMPLY FOR what they post on.@twitter, #Facebook.--which by the way includes surveillance by.@SecNielsen's #DHS and #DoD cc @ChiefPentSpox @JacksonLeeTX18
#TheResistance #CNN #MSNBC #FoxNews
#BREAKING: Under the Posse Comitatus Act, the U.S. Military CANNOT ENGAGE IN domestic law enforcement. I guess this is yet another "NEW NORMAL" we have to deal with under the #Trump Admin--huh.@ChiefPentSpox?

I've talked before about Russian #disinformation, and how the goal is to exploit existing divisive issues to weaken the enemy. 1 #InformationWarfare #WednesdayWisdom #CambridgeAnalytica #Russie #Putin #deza
Bernie v. Hillary, Benghazi & the "email scandal" were perfect targets. There was already tension & division on those topics, so they were easy to exploit. 2
Russia also targeted #peopleofcolor (specifically black voters) to sow distrust of Hillary & the political process, which helped Trump's campaign. 3
