And while you’re at it @piersmorgan @Peston @SamCoatesSky @maitlis & @krishgm can you explain to them that the virus won’t go away just because the “old & vulnerable” have been vaccinated. It will continue to spread through communities until ADEQUATE SAFETY measures are in place.
As we’re seeing now on “the frontline” WHOLE FAMILIES are infected. The combination of advice to #schools/#earlyyears & #Christmas/#NewYear created repeated family #SuperSpreaderEvents of monumental proportions.
There are young ppl who’re sick & in ITU. More cases = more v sick.
INDOOR workplaces are NOT #CovidSecure .
#Schools & #earlyyears settings are NOT #CovidSecure.
Too many ppl are travelling, to many work outside their home & are in education/childcare.
Look at the roads,the #Tube this morning.

I would bet money they all know what a woman is.

I bet none of them have spent the time considering the implications of the adoption of gender ideology on women & children's human rights that @jk_rowling has
Yesterday a young staff member of @RFKHumanRights was on here saying how JKR's statements "go against everything we stand for as an organisation, saying how it was "the youth" that had brought it up and that the board had been slow to move. ImageImage

Have to say something about the #MedBikini paper. I run the professional identity formation course for my institution. My intentions in the course are to pull back the curtain on the #HiddenCurriculum, and empower students to reframe what #professionalism should look like.
To me, this means:
✅Promoting #DEI
✅Dismantling #SystemicRacism, #WhiteSupremacy, and #Misogyny
✅Normalizing #DocsWithDisabilities, #ImposterSyndrome, and seeking #MentalHealth support
✅Building a group of #MDsLoading willing to #SpeakTruthToPower
Framework for the course is the seminal @AcadMedJournal paper from Cruess et al. from 2015 (👀👇).

#MedBikini authors have done so much damage, but to me, they have really laid bare what being socialized into the profession of #VascularSurgery really looks like. Image

USE THIS #Thread #Paradox of #AntiracistEdLeadership in #Edsystems- thoughts I've been really mulling abt in the past while. Have to admit, I've been sitting on this for a couple weeks. Grateful to those who helped me sift through my thinking <3 Here's to #courageousconversations
True #AntiRacist Leadership can only happen when you are anchored in #communities and you do the work #buildrelationships #seekadvice #love & #beLoved by those who give you #permission & #legitimacy to continue the struggle in boardrooms.
When I became a senior leader in Edu. I was advised that - You cannot be on the streets & in the boardrooms. "its time to choose. Its a different struggle." I didnt choose bc WE deserve to be in the boardroom but THAT choice comes at a #price

Steve Scalise and Kevin McCarthy are cowards - and are openly defending Trump's Machiavellianism.

#CountryOverParty #ImpeachTrumpNow #Resist #SpeakTruthToPower @GeauxScalise @kevinomccarthy
1/ Machiavellianism in psychology refers to a personality trait which sees a person so focused on their own interests they will manipulate, deceive, and exploit others to achieve their goals.
2/ The dark tetrad in psychology refers to the personality traits of narcissism, Machiavellianism, psychopathy, and sadism - which are called "dark" because of their malevolent qualities.

Top 10 reasons to support @harrisonjaime 4 US Senate.
1. Jaime’s inspiring personal story. He remembers where & who he came from. Jaime lived the challenges facing vulnerable South Carolinians. He appreciates opportunities he’s received. He lives #ToWhomMuchIsGivenMuchIsRequired
2. Jaime is smart, determined & tenacious. He earned a scholarship to Yale after graduating from an under-resourced Orangeburg SC high school & he earned a law degree from Georgetown while working for @WhipClyburn
3. Jaime’s desire to serve. He could have gone anywhere w/Yale & Georgetown Law degrees but he chose public service: teaching 9th grade in SC, starting a non-profit to help kids get into college, working for @WhipClyburn & rising thru the ranks to become 1st AA Whip Floor Leader.
