நான் அதீத பெண்ணியவாதியோ, ஆண் வர்கத்தின் மீது வெறுப்பு கொண்டவளோ இல்லவே இல்லை. முதலில் அதை தெளிவு படுத்தி விடுகிறேன். எனது தந்தையும், என் கனவரும் உட்பட பல ஆகச் சிறந்த ஆண்மகன்களையே பெரும்பாலும் சந்தித்துள்ளேன் 😊சரி coming to the point: 1/
ஆணாக இருப்பதில் நம் சமுதாயத்தில், ஏன்,உலகில் எங்குமே,ஒரு சிறப்புரிமை அல்லது தனிச்சலுகை (privilege) உள்ளது என்பதை முதலில் புரிந்து கொள்வோம்.எ.கா.:ஒரு ஆண் கவனக்குறைவாக கார் ஓட்டினாலோ, அன்றாட வாழ்வில் ஏதொ ஒரு தவறான முடிவு எடுத்தாலோ, யாரும் அதற்கு அவரது பாலை காரணம் காட்டமாட்டனர் 😄2/
ஏதேனும் ஒரு துறையில் ஒரு ஆண் வெற்றி பெற்றாலோ, உயர் பதவி அடைந்தாலோ யாரும் அவரை, இது அவன் அழகால் மயக்கி, ஒழுக்கம் குன்றி பெற்ற வெற்றி, திறமைக்குக் கிடைத்த வெற்றி அல்ல என்று பேச வாய்ப்பில்லை. Maximum:ரெகம்ண்டேஷன், காக்காய் பிடித்தான் இப்படி ஏதாவது பேசக்கூடும் 3/
In a @savechildrenuk press release, responding to one of several leaks about its handling of #MeToo, review lead Suzanne Shale (@ethicsconsult) said "past events may have caused distress to staff" and "we will listen to those accounts very carefully..."
The March statement, was in response to earlier reviews that had found problems in the NGO's "culture" and "failures" in the way it handled cases of sexual harassment and misconduct: savethechildren.org.uk/news/media-cen…
My #MeToo story is the most harrowing account of my life. I was harrased for months continuesly by @i_saurabhkumar of @FinancialXpress in 2016. I had informed FE who hired him any way. Here is my story:
I have spoken of this before and publicly as well but never in such detail. Seeing other women giving detailed accounts has given me the push I needed to to finally show each and everything this fucking vile man did to me.
I am tweeting this anonymously for various reasons which include fear of legal trouble and also just more trauma of people asking questions about it.
It is very, very tough for women to remember accounts of when they were touched inappropriately; a ‘harmless’ hug that looks OK but makes them alone cringe.
I was 8, maybe 9. I was sleeping. My mom was supervising a recording session for her documentary. Felt a man in priestly robes feel up my privates and I woke up. Told her ‘that uncle is bad’. This was in the studio called Santhome Communications that still exists.
Maybe I was 10/11, December Music Festival, ‘respectable mama’ whose name I dont remember kept pinching my thigh throughout a concert.
I heard more gross stories of Sabha secretaries.
In retrospect, a lot of children weren’t safe around some adults.
Dear women out there
I don't know if I can do much but I want to help.
If any woman in the jurisdiction of Bombay High Court has faced sexual harassment at the workplace and wants to sue please contact me. I will not charge my fees and appear for you in your case.
Thank you everyone who's shown such great support and encouragement! I'm more motivated than ever and I will do my best to help whoever I can.
Another thing, if you see/know of someone being harassed, do not think twice before helping that person in whatever way you can. Please!
My friends and I are working on a write up about how we, as friends, family or colleagues, in our daily lives can be sensitive, listen to and help victims of sexual harassment. We will be talking to counselors, therapists, NGO workers, lawyers and doctors. Any help is appreciated
Kathryn and Ronaldo are at a nightclub in Vegas. She says he raped her that night after she explicitly said no several times.
She goes to the police in a shaken state and fills out a rape report. She refuses to state who did it and says “it’s a public figure”. Evidence is collected by Nevada police and they tell her to get an attorney because she’s dealing with a high profile person.
She gets an attorney who is inexperienced and he proposes a settlement instead of going to trial. At this point, she’s traumatized and just wants the whole thing to go away. So she tells her attorney to settle it for 900K.
What is with y’all and lying about the believability of male/non-women survivors? Like patriarchy doesn’t also chew them up and spit them out for being ~weak enough~ to be assaulted???? Hmm? What gives?
This ~superior victim~ thing that White women have going on is not the wave and it is precisely the thing that keeps undermining the efforts of #MeToo/#TimesUp and tbh, y’all need to let that shit go because if it that isn’t base narcissism, IDK what is.
Im going to talk BTS and K-Pop and #metoo and #TimesUp and the American music industry and how all of its related in a few...
So after all that noise all day, we need to get to a problem that is just as worse - the acceptance of BTS and K-Pop as a bromide from all the changing metrics in the American music industry and its issues. It's only going to create more headache.
The American Music Industry and the rest of the entertainment industry in the last several years put their bank on the Hallu Movement - a way of seeing popular culture and technology via Korean sensibilities.
There is a disdain for women that is emanating from the U.S. Senate that has a pungent, rotten odor. pbs.org/newshour/polit…
There is misogyny in the U.S. Senate pure and simple, whether it’s trying to undercut the CAA Reform Act or the way that Dr. Blasey Ford is being treated. And women across the country know it when they see it.
Please don’t be sick of hearing this, because it’s so important. You need to call you Senators and tell them to vote no on Kavanaugh. There are some key GOP wavering. Call volume must be high! #StopKavanaugh
It’s not ok if you’re drunk, or they are.
It’s not ok if you’re young, you’ll never be able to atone.
You must have consent.
It’s not, NOT ok to hold your hand over their mouth so they don’t scream.
Rape stains forever.
If you seat him, you foul the court.
We remember. #TimesUp
Tell your Senators that to seat Kavanaugh, accused of attempted rape, would destroy the court. They will ruin it’s credibility, and their own.
It’s go time. Call volume is crucial.
YOU MUST DO THIS. #StopKavanaugh
You know the drill. We need to GOP votes. Murkowski and Collins are our best bet. They accept calls from everyone.
In light of some recent comments, if you’re a constituent of Corker, Graham, or Flake, light them up. 👊
I just want people to look at some replies to some tweets on #ChristineBlaseyFord. As a matter of fact click on the hashtag. Just see some of the shameful, despicable things being tweeted about her. THIS IS WHY MANY WOMEN DON'T WANT TO COME FORWARD AND REVEAL THEIR STORIES.
People like Kavanaugh, who commit these acts go on to lead their lives, to become highly respected in society while their victims live with their trauma. There is no pushing it off & denying it for the victims. That memory stays with them, they relive it, & deal with triggers.
In the meantime, people like Kavanaugh get to deny the existence of their acts, their privilege allows them to skate through, and shameful people both men & women stand by them and enable them to continue skating. This is what society does to victims & why they stay silent.
