So my #prolife friends who haven't read #TheHandmaidsTale have a better idea about the slippery slope some people in the US think we're on after the #DobbsDecision, in the novel Serena Joy was a public figure who helped 6ring about a theocracy ruled by men, in which 1/5
homosexual and premarital sex were punishable by death, and women weren't allowed to read or write and couldn't have their own money so they'd be dependent on men. Because Serena and her husband haven't been able to have children, they are allowed a "handmaid," 2/6
a woman who has somehow "sinned" against the theocracy and is known to be fertile. The Handmaids are ritually raped by the men to whom they are assigned in order to get them pregnant as surrogates for the infertile wives. 3/6

Many critics have abandoned Hulu's drama #TheHandmaidsTale for pulling its heroine back into hell again and again.

But here's why @LorraineAli hasn't given up on it yet…
Hulu’s hour-long drama, created by Bruce Miller and based on Margaret Atwood’s novel of the same name, deviated from the book after its first season…
Here's our 📺 review of #TheHandmaidsTale ahead of the first season's release (2017)…

Stasera voglio parlarvi della comunità #LGBT di rifugiati in #Libia...
Ma c'è un problema:
In Libia non ci sono comunità LGBT, perché è pericoloso solo pensare ad una cosa del genere.
Ci sono, però, molti rifugiati omosessuali.
Perché in moltissimi paesi l'omosessualità è illegale. Si finisce in prigione, o peggio.
Così le persone scappano, cercando un luogo dove poter essere se stesse e vivere in pace. Dove poter amare senza essere considerati criminali ed essere condannati...
A morte, come accade in Mauritania, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Qatar, Emirati, Brunei (il Sudan ha eliminato la pena di morte per gli omosessuali solo 3 mesi fa), oppure alla prigione, come succede in 68 paesi su questa terra. Compresa la Libia.
Lo sapevate?

Empezamos con una linda sorpresa. No tiene chances de ganar, creo, pero fue una gran temporada para él. Image
En actrices cómicas cero sorpresas... me gusta que Linda Cardellini haya entrado también. Aunque no se si #TheGreat está participando como drama. Image

How gender identity politics is endangering #WomensRights masquerading under the guise of “progressivism”- or in other words, as I said to this @notokyriarchy fatherfucker, an #MRA’s dream come true

I shouldn’t have to explain the realities of sex-based oppression in 2018! #Female is a biological sex. #Gender is the roles and norms that are imposed on those with female bodies to subjugate them to males for free sexual, domestic, and reproductive labor.
No matter how many genders a given culture had or recognized, somehow, the half of the group with a cock and balls (males) knew which other half of the group to forcibly impregnate (“#NonMen”, according to some). 🤔🤔🤔

#TheHandmaidsTale got me really thinking about whether or not its premise is science fiction. Consider world population growth. It is trending downwards. Just look at these population trend graphs. Only Germany experienced population growth with an influx of Syrian migrants.
Now I don't think there is enough data to suggest that social influences (economics, values, etc.) are to blame for population decline more than something more innocuous; that the earth is simply approaching its carrying capacity.
However, we would be remiss to ignore the fact that Caucasian populations are becoming increasingly infertile (Read:…) —which is the very basis of the events in #TheHandmaidsTale. Coupled with neo-fascist feminism, that dystopian reality is not implausible.
