A recent article on NBC highlights “The Decade in Asian America”. But it didn’t highlight ONE Filipina/o/x American. Not a great start to 2020, but in true pin@y resiliency, we create our own lists... AGAIN #FilAmDecade…
1) The Brown Asian American Movement has been around since the inception of Asian American organizing. But this decade is where pin@ys yelled that #BrownAsiansExist, thanks especially to @ejrdavid @ErnabelD @anthonyocampo…
2) #FilipinoFoodMovement took off this decade. From premiere restaurants in NYC, SF, LA, & Chicago to release of cookbooks (including new Instapot book!) Too many to name, but much love to @FilFoodMovement @hoodfamousBS @filipinokitchen @NicolePonseca…

1/Had an awful #toxicmasculinity @lyft experience that exemplified why culture matters so much when building a business and customer loyalty. Driver picked me up and then two other passengers for shared ride. I inquired the order of stops and mine was next destination.
2/Found out destination of other passengers and informed @lyft driver that his route was going in opposite direction of both passenger stops. Asked if he could reroute back to main road which would have been a 7 minute drive direct line on one road to my stop.
3/@lyft driver started complaining of my request and informed me he would not be paid if he veered from exact GPS route. I shared my experience that that policy was only for pickups to ensure no detour and efficiency of all passenger pickups.

"Erkek saldırganlığı" ve "kadına şiddet" hakkında 25 parçalık bir zincir.

1/ #EmineBulut sonrası gördüğüm 3 farklı yaklaşımdan bahsedeceğim:

-Klasik muhafazakarlık ("o saatte orada ne işi varmış")
-Yeni sağ ("asıl mağdur erkekler")
-Yeni sol ("bunların hepsi sosyal inşa")
2/ İlki hakkında denecek yeni bir şey pek yok.

300 bin yıllık insanlık tarihinde, kadının erkeğin malı olması 10 bin senelik bir ara dönem (Neolitik Devrim). Çoğu toplumda daha da kısa.

Miyadını çoktan doldurdu, salt gelenekle devam eden artıkları da azalarak bitecektir.
3/ Ha, bazı gençler "Tanrı böyle emretti" demiyor da "farklı evrimsel üreme stratejilerinin sonucu" diyor.

Zıt kutuptalarmış gibiler ama ikisi de, tarihin %1'ini oluşturan bu ara dönemi "insanın doğal hali" veya "olması gereken hali" olarak yorumluyor.…

Leute! Bei #Drohgebärden, #ToxicMasculinity, offen gezeigtem #Rassismus, #Sexismus, #Ableismus etc. sieht man nicht weg!

#WirSindMehr. Das heißt: Aufstehen. Mund aufmachen.

Fallt nicht auf den #Zuschauereffekt rein! Der Gegner verlässt sich drauf. Wir müssen #unteilbar sein. >
Der #Zuschauereffekt, auch #BystanderEffect, tritt auf, wenn Menschen Zeugen von Situationen werden, in denen man eigentlich eingreifen und Hilfe leisten möchte (unterstelle ich mal – wenigstens aber: sollte).
Je mehr Zuschauer, desto unwahrscheinlicher, dass einer eingreift. >
Das heißt im Klartext: Je mehr Ihr seid und je größer damit Eure Erfolgsaussichten wären, desto unwahrscheinlicher ist es, dass auch nur einer von Euch tatsächlich etwas tut. Alle ziehen den Kopf ein.
Hier ein paar Hintergrundinformationen:… >

Let me tell you about the time I rage quit a tech study because it was #toorapey

we're going to call this the rapey noise study™

it's a (not good) study about interacting with a computer using your brain by focusing on a noise while other noises are playing.... [look ma, no hands!...]

1. Toxic masculinity killed 25 people
2. State negligence and refusal to invest in the train system continues to kill #Egyptians
Clearly, the long-running neglect by successive #Egyptian regimes of the rail network has claimed too many lives. And re yesterday’s tragedy, the long-running refusal to confront patriarchy & toxic masculinity - on state and street level - will also continue to claim lives.
A fight between 2 men killed 25 people. When I write or talk about feminism and the need to dismantle patriarchy, I hear “This isn’t the time!” When is the time? Men who benefit from patriarchy don’t care about its toll on others. It took a toll on 25 people yesterday. #Egypt

Remember man who shot dead 2 women at a yoga studio,injured 5, and killed himself? An investigation has found he “planned the attack for months and had...a documented disdain for the opposite sex.”Does such misogyny qualify as terrorism?… #ToxicMasculinity
3 month’s before the mass shooting, Scott Beierle “shared a link to his website “Path of Defiance” with a childhood friend & his wife,who was so disturbed by the content — it included songs about the rape and torture of women — that she shared it with the FBI.” #ToxicMasculinity
“If I can’t find one decent female to live with, I will find many indecent females to die with. If they are intent on denying me life, I will have no choice, but to deny them life,” a document recovered from a hotel room where Beierle had been staying, said. #ToxicMasculinity

Reminder that the "journalist" recording this, interrupting and talking over a cis lesbian trying to give a talk is Michael Conroy of #ThisManBoxIsNoGood Their idea of a male "feminist activist" who speaks against toxic masculinity. Again, beyond parody.
I find it disturbing he is allowed into schools when he clearly has no idea about safeguarding trans kids. What will his "lessons" on toxic masculinity involve when he is so trans hostile? Not to mention hypocritical when he speaks over and dismisses women.
#toxicMasculinity is a big problem, and Michael Conroy displays some of its worst features.

#Gillette Where this commercial goes wrong is with the virtue signaling and assumption that masculinity in and of itself toxic and abusive. This is #ThirdWaveFeminism at it's finest. #3WF is not accepting of anything less in a man than psychological & emotional castration ...
#Gillette #3WF

The fact that a man has a penis is offensive and construed as #ToxicMasculinity. The only way men escape this #LeftistCult #3WF label is
to wear a pussy hat and be submissive to all women regardless of your sexual
orientation. But pls understand....
#Gillette #3WF

the #ToxicMasculinity label has nothing to do with
abuse/sexism/me too/rape. It's about perpetuating the victim mentality of third wave feminist in the leftist cult. The psychological message is "all me
are inherently toxic/abusive so all women are victims"...

What happens to boys when you tell them that masculinity is toxic?

“First off, why are we even talking about “toxic masculinity”? The crime rates in the United States, in North America more broadly, have fallen 50% in the last 25 years.

That includes pretty much every category of violent crimes. So the term itself is terribly defined. I think it’s appalling that faculties of education are pushing this sort of nonsense, and I think that if your kids are exposed to that kind of idiotic, social justice, pseudo...
education, that you should pull them out of the schools, because they’re not being educated, they’re being propagandized. There is also no evidence that we construct our identities as masculine feminine by being expressly taught them by teachers, almost all of that is learned

OK, Twitter. Pour the tea. It’s time to talk about #ToxicMasculinity and the #myth of the #AlphaMale . You ready? I got my tea right here. It’s green tea spiked with whiskey, honey, garlic, mint, and wasabi because it’s going to be that kind of thread. Here we go.
First off, let’s deal with this #AlphaMale nonsense. Take a quick look in the mirror. Are you a wolf, a chimpanzee, a gorilla, or a bonobo? Are you a chicken? Are you a large herd animal, like a horse or a bighorn sheep? No? OK, then you’re probably not an alpha anything.
Alpha males, which distinguish themselves based on physically dominating behaviors DO exist in gorilla and chimpanzee societies. But guess what doesn’t exist in those societies? Higher-order organizational structures such as governments, militaries, or police forces...

You voted for those people, America. They represent you.
-The majority of white American women voters vote GOP —> Grassley and the all-male Senators on the Senate Judiciary Committee.
-There has never been a woman GOP Senator on that committee. It is 2018. #KavanaughHearings
It is 2018. These are the GOP Senators on the Judiciary Committee.
- Old white men - average is 62, Grassley is 85.
- A majority of white American women voters vote GOP. They are footsoldiers of the white supremacist patriarchy that hurts us all.
It is 2018.
- Regardless of how you vote, as a white American, white supremacy works in your favour.
- But if you’re a white woman, patriarchy does not.
I urge all white American women to remember that and to fight it by fighting gendered racism. #KavanaughHearings

Recently, @michaelianblack tweeted + wrote in @nytimes about “suffocating, outdated” systems of masculinity helping drive the epidemic of mass school shootings. As folks who explore #toxicmasculinity in school quite a bit we thought we might expand on this topic further. [1/11]
From ’95-’15 there were 31 mass school shootings. Each shooter was male & all experienced challenges to their performance of masculinity, through homophobia & other forms of gender policing. The response? To prove their tormentors wrong & assert control (Farr, 2017). [2/11]
We know that homophobia, sexism, & gender policing are still prevalent in schools, though individual acts of bullying are somewhat on the decline. Unfortunately, overall, educators’ intervention in these incidents is also on the decline... [3/11]
