#RoeVsWade should be the moment “Gender Critics” snap out of their radicalisation. Their “leaders” JKR, KS, AB, HS, HJ etc have been canoodling with the very same people who have helped make this happen 1/9 🧵🪡
They liaise & accept funds from the far right, religious orgs, the media & corrupt governments. Please reflect on their hate & who they are pals with. This is a crossroads for you all to stop & join in fighting the real dangers facing women and society 2/9
See that they want to control you & strip away your rights just as much as they want to strip away the rights of the LGBTQ+ community. 3/9

The biggest discrimination in India is #EnglishApartheid. The State funds medical colleges, engineering colleges, MBA, High Courts, in English-medium *only*, excluding 90% of the population.

If you care about #SocialJustice why not #Reservation for Tamil-medium instead?
The fact is all the "Tamil pride" of the so-called "Dravidian" parties is for lip-service only. The agenda is English and Christianization. That's the #DravidianModel (itself a colonial construct). That's what the @PWilsonDMK et al fight for.
I thought they made them English medium, at least partially.

முதுகுளத்தூர் ஊராட்சி ஒன்றியத்தில் வட்டார வளர்ச்சி அலுவலர் ராஜேந்திரன் அவர்களை போக்குவரத்துதுறை அமைச்சர் ராஜகண்ணப்பன் பட்டியல் இனத்தவர் என்று பலமுறை கூறி அவர் மீது சாதிய ரீதியிலான தாக்குதலும், அவரை ஒருமையில் பேசி அதிகாரத்தை துஷ்பிரயோகம் செய்துள்ளது கடும் கண்டனத்துக்குரியது.

It is a mystifying feature of #Patriarchy that it never comes up with anything new. It tinkers, it modifies. When it moves from women to other groups, it narrows and intensifies the concepts and violence it applies, but patriarchy never invents. +
We need so much grand invention now to shift our social forms so that we can survive more than a few generations. We have poisoned the Mother. Turns out she's not Mary, but Clytemnestra. We need to come correct for Her, and patriarchy/neocapitalism is not the way.+
Both the #radfem and the current #SocialJustice movements have great thinkers on how to shift ourselves so we can shift our world, how to support each other as we do that epochal work, how to both burn it down and build anew. #WomensHistoryMonth is full of such critique/dream.+

🧵A thread - Same birthday gift three years in a row: a lesson in public health and politics
1/ It was the evening of Thursday, March 12, 2020. I was out shopping with my daughters. My youngest daughter had a gift certificate tucked in her purse. She was eager to find something to spend it on.
2/ Having turned nine years old, the day before, she was still bouncing with happy birthday joy.
Walking through the aisles of toys, I heard a notification on my phone. A text from a friend relayed the news that schools would remain closed after the upcoming March break.

#SocialJustice is a flawed concept in India.
Social Justice can only be achieved through #sustainability.

A young man of 22 yr left his promising job of an investment banker , went to the jungles is Amazon and found that poor people who used to extract rubber from rubber trees
Were paid peanuts . He also found that cotton farming occupies 2% of the world's agricultural land but usesn 30% of the pesticides.
He bought rubber from the people of Amazon by paying them thrice the amount and he bought organic cotton and also paid the cotton growers handsome amount. He said social justice should not be a part of charity but should be a part of business where both the parties should benefit

1/🧵 Paul Farmer has died.

It is so heartbreaking 💔. Let us collectively mourn his passing - one of the greatest #PublicHealth figures in the history of Medicine.

His @PIH is a tribute to a kinder gentler way to love each other.

More…
2/ Dr. Farmer started his vocation of #SocialJustice by serving the beautiful people of Haiti, the world’s 1st Black republic. He looked in their eyes & saw their needs…HIV, malaria, Tb, hunger, poverty, neglect.

In response he took action…

(paintings below by my daughter)
3/ Paul Farmer is the central figure in Kidder’s 📚 “Mountains Beyond Mountains.” If you haven’t read it, order now.

Through his drive and insights we learned to say “Yes” to bringing modern medicine to the most remote settings of human life on Earth 🌍

The path towards #SocialJustice was not made in a day, but painstakingly laid over the decades, stone by stone, with sweat and blood of various trendsetters like Dr. Natesanar, Dr.T.M. Nair, Sir. P.Theagarayar, A.T.Paneerselvam, Panagal Arasar (1/n) Image
Thanthai Periyar, Perarignar Anna, Kalaignar in Tamil Nadu and Jyotirao Phule, B.R. Ambedkar, VP Singh in India.

It was this heritage which made DMK take the cause of depressed societies to restore their rightful seats in medical education in all states and not just Tamil Nadu. Image
To further continue our journey in the path to achieve the welfare of depressed and oppressed, we need to implement Social Justice all over India.

We need to go through what has taken place ignored by the professionals who failed this family, as @ukhomeoffice @pritipatel allows @IOPC_Help Mr Lovett who was the line manager to #CindyButts and Butts manager to Jennifer Gillian.

@CPSUK @MaxHillQC has been involved ImageImage
in just about everything in reference to @BarCouncilChair @thebarcouncil @barstandards @sra_solicitors #RuleOfLaw , am I correct in assuming this is the case @factchecknet?

@MayorofLondon @SadiqKhan am I to assume you meant what you said surrounding @KidsMatterUK ImageImage
as I am assuming the @EduPolicyInst would also agree it's your jobs #MayorofLondon #MaxHill #cps to ensure the @VictimRightsLaw @GoodLawProject @JolyonMaugham who had a hell of a lot to say in the @grenfellinquiry as @DLawrenceOBE has who both are a strong team

My name is Noeleen Cox @Coxy26094374 and I am sharing about the recent and ongoing experience of my pregnant granddaughter who was recently diagnosed with covid19 in regional country SA. I am disgusted and angry 😡with SAHealth and the SAGovt and how they have treated Aboriginal

My grand daughter is 3 months pregnant with her first time pregnancy. She was held overnight in a health facility in Ceduna and then flown in the morning from Ceduna with 8 other

You do realize that your telling the truth about why #VoteBlue is pointless when even the #Democrats get a Supermajority, they won't get anything done?

Because that's what your admitting here, your saying "You shouldn't vote for us, because we still won't get anything done!"
We could've had #MedicareForAll or a #PublicOpinion under the @BarackObama Administration. But what we've gotten was a Right-wing #Healthcare Plan by the the @Heritage Foundation that kept the For-profit #HealthInsurance Companies in Control!
That was @MittRomney's Plan & it was supported by Right-wing idiots like @ChuckGrassley & @newtgingrich.

If @BarackObama cared about #SocialJustice, then he would've gone the Franklin D. Roosevelt & Lyndon B. Johnson route to make Democrats pass his Bills! But no.

After taking a Twitter sabbatical (things have been busy), I thought I would take a note from @jurijuri and discuss my insights into #meetups...since I run @WhoMeetup. A thread. /1
Meetups, at their heart, are socially-oriented.

There's no rule that says you *have* to show a video, or *have* to do anything.

Too many people act like "meetups don't matter"...and they do.

#Meetups can provide a low barrier of entry to fandom /2
At its heart, @WhoMeetup doesn't "compete" with Gally or Chicago TARDIS...

we take our cue from groups like @chicagonerds, @RaksGeek, and @DownInFrontLive and focus on *community* rather than "commodity".

And we've done a lot since I took over @WhoMeetup in 04/2012. /3

Narcissist or Cluster B thread 🧵 These people do not and cannot talk ‘with’ you or their children. They talk ‘at’ YOU. There is a huge difference. They can't truly communicate. They do NOT have the capacity. Genuine communication is ‘two sided’. Talking ‘with’ vs. ‘at’
If you have someone, some group, in your life who talks ‘at’ you, you have some reevaluating to do. Notice #socialjustice groups. Do they talk ‘with you’ or ‘at’ you? Notice #transgender #transactivist groups. Do they talk ‘with’ or ‘AT’ people?
Genuine communication is ‘two sided’ with both interested in hearing and seeking to understand the other with respect. Narcissists are one sided, one way & one dimensional ONLY.
They are ‘adversarial’ communicators & conversationalists. It is in their words & in their language

💸 Is hyperinflation a reality? How to protect yourself?

Money may well depreciate at times. This has already happened before, even in developed countries. #Inflation in developed world is accelerating, and the authorities are carried away by populism. Image
• In the #US, inflation has already accelerated to 6.2%
• In #Germany, it reached a 28-year high of 4.5%.

Authorities of developed countries put above #inflation problems of #SocialJustice in labor market (employment in all minority groups is important) and #climate warming. Image
Populist views are capturing the minds of monetary authorities, which only fuels #inflation. This was the case in the #USA in the 1970s: prices almost tripled.
And sometimes it was much worse: in Israel in the 1980s, prices for goods jumped ~10,000 times. Image

🥦Following our earlier post for #COP26 on #vegetarianism, we wanted to share some insights & quotes from #suffrage activists who *were* #vegetarians 🥒🌶🍅

☮️ Vegetarianism was associated w/ peace, & standing up against the poor treatment of fellow living creatures 🐄🐑🦆🐖
​1/
📣This quote from MrsDespard describes how #vegetarianism was linked to #socialjustice:

​🗣“The #women ’s movement relates to the other great movements of the world…The awakened instinct which feels the call of the sub-human, which says ‘I am the voice of the voiceless.'"
​2/
🥖🐁Some #vegetarian #suffragettes who went to prison got better food. Nancy John describes prisoners declaring they were vegetarian to avoid eating mouse-eaten bread.
​🗣“When they said they were vegetarians they were given milk - it was really the milk that kept them alive.” 3/

Participated in the protest organised in Kalburagi demanding the release & implementation of Socio - Economic and Educational survey report prepared by Karnataka State Commission for Backward Classes.

#SocialJustice
The survey by Karnataka State Commission for Backward Classes is not just a caste census, but also socio-economic & educational survey of all the families in Karnataka.

#SocialJustice
The survey is free from bias & prejudice. Enumerators were teachers, who were not from any one particular caste or religion.

This survey is not against any caste. This is to ensure Social Justice.

I’ve been out for the past 6 months.

I think I want to write about it.

Deep breath: here is my #LongCovid story.
You may remember this tweet from April of 2020.

Gandalf let me down, and I ended up getting #COVID19 just 3 weeks after getting H1N1 influenza. (I am a doctor and toddler mom, pretty germy).
The night that I got #COVID19 it felt like broken glass was running through my veins. No fever but just that icy chill. Horrible, rotten smell in my nose. And strangest of all a buzzing feeling, a restlessness. It made me want to crawl out of my skin. I couldn’t sleep that night.

பெரியாரை இழிவு செய்வதாக நினைத்து சங்கிகளும் , நூலிபான்களும் , நாம் ஜோம்பீஸூம் , சில புலம்பெயர் இலங்கையரும் எடுக்கும் அவதூறு மணியம்மை - பெரியார் திருமணம்.

"வயதான பிறகு திருமணம் செய்தார், திருமணம் நடந்த போது பெரியார் வயது 70 - மணியம்மை வயது 32 , வளர்ப்பு மகளையே திருமணம் செய்தார்"
என வாட்ஸ் அப் இல் தின்ற வாந்தியை கழிந்துக் கொண்டிருப்பார்கள்.

திருமணம் என்பது ஒருவரின் தனிப்பட்ட சங்கதி என்றாலும்,

மணியம்மை பெரியாரை திருமணம் செய்த கொண்ட போது 32 வயது , அவராக முடிவெடுத்துதான் திருமணம் செய்து கொண்டார்.
தவிர மணியம்மை - பெரியார் திருமணம் என்பது அந்த காலகட்டத்தில் இரத்த சம்பந்தமான உறவுகளுக்கு அன்றி யாருக்கும் சொத்தை மாற்றி தரமுடியாது என்ற சட்ட பிரச்சினையினால் ,

வாரிசு இல்லாத பெரியார் தன் கொள்கைகளை வழிநடத்தி செல்ல சொத்தை மாற்றி எழுத ஏற்படுத்திக் கொண்ட ஒப்பந்தம்
