Can we for real make #collectyourcousins a thing? Black folks are constantly collecting their cousins bc 1 black person acting a fool can have far reaching consequences for all of us. White folks don’t seem to feel as implicated by the failures or foolishness of other white folks
I propose #collectyourcousins as a call to allies to come respond to racist (sexist, cissexist, ableist, homophobic) comments by similarly identified people. White women collecting white women. Straight men collecting straight men. Cis folks collecting cis folks.
The appeal of #collectyourcousins in two-fold for me. 1: Privileged folks often respond defensively especially to marginalized folks calling them on such privilege or ignorance. They have a harder time being dismissive of folks with shared identities.

Yes #SmashBrahmanicalPatriarchy and every other kind of patriarchy, misogyny & #sexism regardless of the caste, class, race or religion that habits it. And they all do. But this poster #JackDorsey held was interesting for a number of reasons which I will discuss in this thread.
2/ Firstly, the picture on this poster of a #Dalit woman, reinforces upper-caste, discriminatory, caste stereotypes that holds that the lower caste are dark skinned with Afroid hair & facial features. We all know this untrue. There is no way you can identify caste by color!
3/ In fact it is this kind of stereotype about what Dalit women look like and do, which Jack's poster reinforces, that Dalit women in India have been fighting. #jackinindia

Hi guys, some of you need to dissent/ decline wrt the #manels youve been put on, at the @skochgroup event
- @SkochSameer pls check.
- Guys on manels include @nitin_gadkari @ManishTewari @ashwani_mahajan @iam_anandv @prasanna_s @prasanto @nixxin @AnupamSaraph @pavanduggal + others
2. Does this reflect lack of #merit or prevalence of #sexism that @skochgroup has found only 4 women of worth, out of 46 speakers?

- The 4 women: @ShamikaRavi @rachnakhaira @navikakumar, Yamini Aiyar

- How are the 42 men feeling?
cc @SkochSameer @SreenivasanJain @ManishTewari
3. Today began with @skochgroup declaring that only 4 women were found #meritorious, to speak on tech.
But 42 men were worthy.
They celebrated this #inequality, with a full page ad in Indian Express.

1. The “Statement on Social Justice and the Gospel” perverts both the gospel and one of its components, social justice.

#Gospel
#SocialJustice
2. The first paragraph of the statement’s introduction asserts there is “an onslaught of dangerous and false teachings that threaten the gospel.” This is error.

The reality is that the gospel is not threatened by lies, and falsehoods pose no danger to it.
3. The statement’s introduction then identifies the culprit as social justice but places the phrase in quotes, allowing the reader to assume that social justice is not a real concern for those seeking to live out the gospel of Jesus.

We were shocked, and it often shocks others, that Amnesty International is in favour of female sexual slavery and sexual exploitation - here is their prostitution policy: scribd.com/doc/202126121/…
'Amnesty International believes that seeking, buying, selling and soliciting paid sex are acts protected from state interference as long as there is no coercion, threats or violence associated with those acts'.
What about financial coercion?
Do Amnesty think the power balance is one of equality? From Dt. Superintendent Sporer 'Several women finally stated that these men had exploited them and had put pressure on them. ..

It is with great displeasure that I present to you all a day in the life of a woman in science. Because, y'know, we're just too distracting to be taken seriously, EVER. 🙃 #sexism
That's a comment in response to the photos of me taken in the feature by @TorontoVerve (if you didn't see the feature, my current avi is one of them, and I've added one to this tweet). This was posted on reddit, you can take a look, here: google.com/amp/s/amp.redd…
It got so bad that a ton of comments were deleted, and users, blocked. So bad that comments are now locked. IN THE ASTRONOMY SUBREDDIT. So if anyone thinks astro is friendlier to women, think again.

1. I remember when you angry #Trumpkins stormed into #Republican Party; called #Conservatives “cucks”, “leftists”, “Killary voters”, “libtards”. You idolized #Trump in a cultic way. You fraternized with alt right #racists. You winked at #sexism. ->

#ConservativeWithoutAParty
2. You said #Conservative principles didn’t really matter, though you really couldn’t tell us what #Conservatism means. Of course, your leader didn’t know either; his attempts to articulate it were painful. You mocked our efforts to explain. ->

#ConservativeWithoutAParty
3. #Trump wild swings of rhetoric, positions, moods didn’t bother any of you. Whatever Trump said last was best & most true, no matter the word salad in which it was presented. His blatant self-contradictions were obvious to all but to you. ->

I very much believe that anyone even SLIGHTLY into #BDSM is also into #FinDom as well.

Not “tolerates”. Not “experiments.”

I maintain that everyone in their own right deeply and SPECIFICALLY aches for FinDom from a young age.

A thread on BDSM, #powerexchange, #edgeplay, etc.
1. #FinancialDomination, even as defined on Wikipedia, is largely indicative of a sickened society, which we undoubtedly live in.

Wikipedia refers to the natural progression of BDSM into online-only relationships, which findom often receives stark criticism for encouraging.
However, as it stands: many people in our sickened society hope for a deeper sense of intimacy even quicker than before.

Considering how often payment methods show full names, the overlap of blackmail fantasy play, and the depth of financial submission, findom could arguably be

1.) Pretty much my entire life I've been asked (primary by white people) the question that I imagine every "asian" person cringes at inside: "Where are you from?" I'm certain the person asking this is completely ignorant to how annoying this question is and why...
2.) Over time, I began to answer the question by saying "New York" or "California" - where I had spent my childhood and formative years - just to give the person the benefit of the doubt that they weren't going where I already knew they were...
3.) Inevitably, they would follow-up with some version of "no, I mean what is your background? Chinese or Japanese?" A.) WTF does it matter B.) Does anyone come up to you and ask - "hey, you Irish or German or Scottish or French or Dutch or etc...
