Derek Jarman´s "Caravaggio": Chiaroscuro, Baroque and the ashes of Pasolini.
#DerekJarman, was a bold and unapologetic filmmaker and artist, highly influenced by Pier Paolo #Pasolini, whose work he emulated in his career. 1.- Image
@Dexfletch 2.-His films, such as "#Caravaggio," pay homage to Pasolini's aesthetic and thematic concerns, while also reflecting his experiences and perspectives as a #gay artist living in #Thatcher's #Britain.
3.-"Caravaggio" is a visually stunning and thematically rich film that remains a highlight of Jarman's career. It is a meditation on the power of #art to transcend time and space, as well as the ephimeral nature of #fame and #celebrity.

Y'all ready 2 get this #PurpleParty started? @Prince entered @Sunset Sound early May '82 to record what would become his longest electro-jam #Automatic. At over 9 minutes sending the project dubbed 1999 he began in Jan into unintentional Double LP territory
He arrived with clearly something on his mind as everything in #Automatic feels like a confession An urgent unsettling genuine desperation unfolding with lyrical themes of emotion as technology. Lockstep speak-singing in the same pattern of his drum machine.
Both principal themes at the time, spiritual & profane come into play, the latter on full display when he makes cavalier declaration of a sexual favor, the listener & backing singer @JillJones simultaneously snap to as she excitedly responds “You will?!”

Unfortunately, it has come to my attention that a very talented artist whose work is beloved by many zoos and furries has used their influence and platform to unintentionally spread harmful misinformation. Despite the good intentions of @Elicitie, this must be corrected.
This is a position @Elicitie, I, zoos, and many animal advocates share. Indeed sexual contact between homosapiens and other taxalogical families should be consensual. The term 'zoophilia' has been superseded by 'zoosexuality' in the literature.

1./ A long thread 🧵 132+ countries have policies or laws relating to sex education and many refer to UNESCO for guidance. HOW EXACTLY did gender identity ideology get into the 2018 update of UNESCO’s international sex education guidance?…
2. / In 2009, UNESCO published the International Technical Guidance on Sexuality Education (ITGSE): An evidence-informed approach for schools, teachers and health educators. Purpose: assist in the dev't of school-based sex ed programmes. In 2016 the process of updating it began.
3./ [note: this thread tries to analyse how ‘gender identity’ got into international sex education guidance. There are 4 other concerns analysed by others; 1) the name ‘sexuality’, 2) queer theory, 3) sexualising young children and 4) safeguarding. See links at the end]

"I Was Circumcised Twice Before The Age Of 16!"
Teliwel Diallo Recalls Hers:
"When I was eight years old, my mother told me that it was time for me to become a woman. She took me somewhere. I met other #Girls, some friends and girls from the neighboring village.
It was a big #day. I didn’t know anything about excision. I was feeling happy inside. I did not know the consequences and pain of excision.
We were maybe one hundred girls. Everyone was waiting her turn. I could hear the cries of the #girl before me. I was frozen. I could not run
because it would be a dishonor for my #family. I was wondering whether I should run away or stay, but I didn’t have the choice.
I heard the #Girls crying. My turn came. It was atrocious. Four #women caught me, put me down, opened my sex and cut me. I cried out loudly. I feel that

Of the increasing number of initiatives setting out in recent years to challenge heteronormativity in education, the 2006-2009 No Outsiders project has arguably been one of the #MostInfluential
Conducted across 15 primary schools in England, #No Outsiders
Conducted across 15 primary schools in England, No Outsiders was an action research project that sought to disrupt heteronormativity through critical pedagogy, gaining widespread academic and media attention in the process
In spite of its prominence, though, there has been a lack of research exploring the ways in which #children have incorporated this work into their everyday understandings and doings of #gender and #sexuality.

Made worldwide news…practitioners & policy makers across UK

1/ Shared few insights emerging from community-based #COVID care that some communities have begun in #Adivasi populations in #Chamarajanagar with support from #ZillaPanchayat in live video interaction with #Karnataka #GramPanchayats thanks to @gokRDPR
2/ #COVID19 care needs to be rational & #evidence-based but also respectful & dignified; these are not aspects we have done well with in our #HealthSystem & hence need special attention;
3/ Dignified & respectful care requires an awareness of diverse socio-economic & cultural contexts at individual, household, neighbourhood & societal levels; we haven't substantively engaged with (#caste #gender #disability #sexuality #privacy )-aware care at systemic level

Good Morning!

Continuing our #Dialogue on #Gems and #GemTherapy, today we shall dwell on the next two #GemStones.

#YellowSapphire and #Diamond. (1/13)

2-Yellow Sapphire is D highest quality Gemstone used 4 #Jupiter.

Substitute Gemstones for Yellow Sapphire are Yellow Tourmaline, #Citrine, Yellow #Zircon and #Topaz.

In my view, I have seen that Yellow Sapphire is one of the most widely prescribed Gemstone. (2/13)

3-Being related to #Jupiter it is bound to activate within you – the #Energy of the #Universal #Guru.

Out of the four #Vedic #Purusharthas, of #Dharma, #Artha, #Kama and #Moksha, Yellow Sapphire well and truly stands for #Dharma.

Who wants to see the #Diversity data for @STFC_Matters, that was released by @UKRI_News last week?

The full data release is here, so if you want to see anything for yourself, go ahead:…

STFC have a #equality & #diversity statement here:…
So, let’s start with @STFC_Matters #ethnicity data.

Worth noting that @UKRI_News collate three categories; ethnic minority, white, not disclosed.

We can’t separate out different ethnicity, which is a problem in itself. Image

THREAD: Troubled by many media reports & SM conversations where depression + mental health issues are assumed to be only causes of #suicide
Of course, we need conversations on #Mentalhealth & depression is associated with suicide. Why am I then bothered by this? Read on..1/n
In the West, studies show that ~ 80% of suicides have depression as a predisposing cause. Also in West, suicides peak is mostly older ppl (>60 yrs) + male:ratio is ~ 4: 1.
However India's suicide epidemology is different. In India, only ~50% have some mental illness...2/n
Also our peak suicides are in age group of 18-39 yrs + male:female ratio is ~ 1.5:1. So a lot of young Indian women dying of suicides.1 out of 3 women dying of suicide 🌍 are Indian. For women in this age group, suicides is No 1 cause of death, ahead of maternal mortality..3/n

"[Porn] contains a lot of violence against women. It's terribly racist. If you look at mainstream porn, it's terribly misogynist.

"[Yet] pornography equals sex has become just such a cultural staple." - @DrMeaganTyler
#pornharms #pornculture #sexuality…
.@DrMeaganTyler told ABC that porn has become normalised in our society and the demand for "ethical porn" was part of that.

"Why is [there a] desperation for there to be an ethical porn, rather than the question of what would sexuality look like without pornography now?"
"In a post #metoo era if we're really talking about sharing equal sexual relations between men & women I cannot see the porn industry is part of that.”

"You can't say you're pro-Me Too and pro women's consent & still masturbate to material that fundamentally subordinates women."

How do you teach your children about sexuality?

@kinnareads reminds us that "parents parent from a place of fear" so the first thing to do is to come to terms with your own fear. Powerful.

How do you teach your children about sexuality?

@OhTimehin shares her fear that our society "hates girls who know things". So how do we teach girls what we want them to know while also equipping them to face people's unease with the fact that they know so much?

*Taps lecture mic*

#Privilege means you’re given unearned advantages based on a social norm or value. #Race, #gender, #class, #disability, & #sexuality are all major social systems which value certain bodies & behaviors over others.
Fatphobia & slim/size privilege are produced by systems of gender, race & class. How? By the production of beauty norms & medical standards of health which are based on middle class whiteness & directed mostly violently at women.
Thought big booties are recently valued (notably most when they are not on the bodies of black women, especially fat black women), the bodies historically most celebrate were/are thin white women. This is an ideal that harms all women & encourages us to all hate our bodies.
