Thread on yesterday’s debate in the House of Lords. A male, Conservative Peer has said what *some* Women’s organisations have been to afraid to say. I’m only part way through the transcript this is part 1.
Many of us have watched the direct attack on single sex spaces and how invariably the male toilets remain unaffected and women’s are converted to “gender neutral” i.e Mixed Sex. Or we are told those with urinals are suitable for both sexes. They are not.
The Question. 👇
Where is the research? Who is disadvantaged? WOMEN! For safety, dignity and privacy. For the record there are many male people who do NOT like mixed sex facilities. And YES there are many strange men in this world and every woman has met them.

This article believes that silencing of female nurses by the "patriarchy" is WORSE than the genital mutilation of boys!

Not once does the author address the issue of #circumcision from the infant's perspective, being a violation of consent and bodily integrity. #i2
Why are you denying the humanity of African-American men who hate #circumcision like @quill_monger, @LaurenVino?

It's funny how you're trying not to be racist, but by denying their existence, you are racist.

> the manosphere is exclusively the domain of miserable white men
There are extremists in feminism, extremists in animal rights, extremists in environmentalism, so on.

If all intactivists are this way, then all feminists are misandrists. Tit for tat.

> Members of the impassioned anti-circumcision, or intactivist movement, took it from there

OK. Here we go. #ICJ Provisional Measures Order #TheGambia v #Myanmar #Rohingya #Genocideconvention Judge Sebutinde - not on the bench.
- Background of application - omitting procedural history etc.
Reference to #Rohingya group that self-identifies as Rohingya; prima facie jurisdiction need not be definitive as to merits of the case - art 36(1) ICJ Statute & Art 9 Genocide Convention - this needs to be satisfied first
Parties to GC - no reservation to art 9 by Myanmar but to art 6 & 8; no reservations of Gambia; “dispute” exists where hold “clearly opposite views” re performance/non-performance of obligations;one party maintains dispute, other denies it. Therefore compromissory clause comes in

Day 2 #Gambia v #Myanmar #ICJ begins, w/#ASSK up first. She declares #genocide is a crime, applied by #ICTR to #Rwanda but not to #Kosovo or #Croatia by #ICTY or #ICJ, because of a lack of dolus specialis.
Gambia has put fwd 'Incomplete & misleading factual picture'. Situation in #Rahkine is 'complex & not easy to fathom'. (same rhetoric as we have heard for years)
Complexities go back for yrs. Claims conflict btwn Arakan Army w/5000 fighters & the #Myanmar Army, w/Arakan Army seeking independence. The conflict has led to displacement & security measures such as curfew & checkpoints, applied to all regardless of background.

Here we go. Commencement of provisional measures hearings at the #ICJ: first up, the appointment of the two #judges #adhoc - biographies of Navanethem Pillay & Claus Kress - chosen by #TheGambia & #Myanmar respectively. Art. 31, ICJ #Statute.
Priority of request of indication of provisional measures prioritized over all other cases, balanced with opportunity for parties to be represented. 3 hours per party Tuesday & Wednesday, after which reply on Thursday for each. ICJ Procedure.
No entering into merits of case, stick to requirements for provisional measures.

A few years ago a girl was pushed into a SUV & gang raped. After outrage, police claimed arresting culprit Satya Naratan alias Sattu. They even said his bracelet was recovered from spot & it had Sattu engraved on it. People were suddenly cheering, demanding death for Sattu #Rape
Even before identification by victim, he was believed 'monster'. As reporting was still alive in those days, it was soon found that as the man had no connections, was poor, he was framed so as to get rid of pressure & questions about rape in moving car near police station. Now..
the officers plainly said, 'we will withdraw charges against him'. He was saved purely because of diligent reporting who revealed the entire sequence. The 'bracelet' did not even belong to him. The point is that when girl's kin approach police, they're not given proper response

#Thread #Rape
आज समाज में बलात्कार की घटनाएं काफी बढ़ गई हैं। समाज के अंग होने के नाते हम सब ये सोच रहे हैं कि इसके पीछे का क्या कारण है और इसको कम कैसे किया जाए।

बलात्कार को समझने से पहले हमें मानव शरीर और मानव मस्तिष्क को समझना होगा।
ज्ञानेंद्रियों और कर्मेंद्रियों से जो भी सूचना हमारा मस्तिष्क ग्रहण करता है उसी से हमारे विचार बनते है। और विचार के आधार पर हम कर्म करते हैं। सूचना कैसी भी हो सकती है।

सात्विक सूचना:
अयं निज: परोवेति गणना लघु चेतसाम् ।
उदार चरितानाम् तु वसुधैव कुटुंबकम्।।

तामसिक सूचना:
रसिका को अपने पति से चरमसुख नहीं मिला तो उसने नौकर से सहयोग लिया तथा उसके ससुर ने उसको सहयोग दिया।

अब आप विचार कीजिए, एक मानव मस्तिष्क यदि सिर्फ दूसरी सूचना ले और उसे कोई ये ना बताए की ये काफी गलत विचार है ग्रहण करने योग्य तो वो उसे ही सही मानेगा।

It is a strange conundrum we face in India.

Purely going by statistics India seems to be better than many developed countries in terms of #Rape.

But the misoginy is so evident.

We r going through transition where women experience more 1/n

#Priyanka #Hyderabad #JusticeForRoja
freedom to work yet the ordinary Indian man has yet to come to terms with it.

Calling women 'whores', 'How much?' R still prevalent.

This disease is not uncommon across the world yet it only gets reported widely in India due to our sensationalist media.

We have to 2/n
While cases like this deserve all the attention one should remember that we r still majorly misogynistic n patriarchical.

Only way to get out of the malice is when women venture outside n this becomes commonplace.

And to deny that mass media n movies have no influence 3/n

#Tories Election Cock-Up Chaos so far - a continuing series :

01 - #Tories admit and apologise for a doctored, misrepresentative video of Kier Starmer. Tory MPs like @JohnnyMercerUK leave it on their feed and actively continue to spread.

@SimonFanshawe Fairly shocking to find eradication of "mixed wards" By @NHSEngland @NHSImprovmeent was only rebranding exercise & that now they just lie about #male genitalia to #female patients so they have no way to protect themselves. @CMO_England @CNOEngland
@SimonFanshawe @NHSEngland @CMO_England @CNOEngland @Jochurchill4 NHS guidelines:
Grade #1 woman: transwomen with #ladydique
Grade #2 woman: biological female #unraped (of course)
Grade #3 woman: Biological female - rape survivors, it doesnt matter that they can't sleep or scared out of their wits. @Baroness_Nichol
@SimonFanshawe @NHSEngland @CMO_England @CNOEngland @Jochurchill4 @Baroness_Nichol Ideally, of course #Female #Rape survivors (or victims) dont actually show up for medical treatment they need & deserve, freeing up #NHS resources for patients who are not damaged goods & who deserve actual health care.

I'm shocked by Nobel Laureate Abhijeet Banerjee's this article on #rape! He thinks men rape because they do not get enough sex! And that child marriage is how village patriarchs try to prevent rape! I'm very worried about his gender empowerment projects!…
A thread

2/This article is #AbhijitBanerjee's explanation for the Delhi bus gang rape and an increase in such rapes. Do we assume that if poor men were each given 3-4 room houses where each person has private space to have sex then he won't rape? Do rich men not rape/gang rape?
3/ In all his work with the underprivileged, did #AbhijitBanerjee learn nothing about the sexual mores of various tribal communities in India which are far more open than educated urbans and allow for sexual freedom & choice for men & women (w/out owing homes or having privacy)?

1. Thread on Illuminati Symbols - for those not familiar with it, perhaps look on it as a pictorial language that when you learn it, reveals hidden messages. First post is the Illuminati Ball 2018 in New York… #Illuminati #IlluminatiSymbols #Rothschild

To all #Muslim women sick of being beat and treated like dogs!

We have programs to help you escape your imprisonment...

Democrats won't tell you this because their best interest is in your Democrat vote and keeping you as a prisoner to their needs also...

Only you can stop it!

Call a Hotline or 911 for help to get the ball running to get your freedom from the men who beat you and your children.
We need to unite to teach the Muslim communities women that in the US they have rights!

They no longer have to be treated like slaves! Many of them are!!!

The Democrats are bending our Laws to allow this behaviour! I am not OK with this as it will only give them more power!

A tragic death, and instead of justice and closure, the case is fueled by #ignorance. According to the inspector, "Pramila could not have been raped because she was on her #period." Excuse me, what? #menstruation #rape #nepal
If there is evidence to support the fact that women are never raped when menstruating, then we should just change directions and support #chhaupadi as a safe practice for women, because apparently no rapes happen when women are #menstruating.
@NFCC has put out a statement on the story. Please read. And please, for the sake of women and girls everywhere, we must stop making blanket assumptions that perpetuate violence against women and girls. #VAW #menstruationmatters

Okay guys... here we go... wish me luck. #puppetgate #allinarowplay #livetweet #amreading #ActuallyAutistic

Image Description: a copy of the play “All in a Row” lying on a blue pillow.
TW: #puppetgate

Okay, let’s start with the cover. My husband pointed out that the image has three upright cakes neatly lined up and the one blue cake that is fallen over. I assume that since there are four characters, the blue one is the autistic character. Out of place.
TW: #PuppetGate

Next you have big bios of all the cast and crew. Then there’s a two page preface written by Alex Oates and by golly he is TRYING. He uses identity first language (brownie points for that) and tries to explain everything including the puppet.
