@linda_a_burnett's workshop done, presentations attended, scholars met, and conversations had. What have I learned? Surprising things. Here's a partial reflection histories of scientific instructions, lists & colonial travel. @UU_University, @BookScribbler, @eayers0, @dominikhhh
First off, not all lists are alike. Much can be learned by the order of items, especially when it comes to ethnographic observation. The order of observation tells us about the intellectual context from which the instruction arises. #listing #History #Science #KNOWLEDGE
But study of intellectual context takes us into other domains - of national experiences, of inter-imperial exchanges, of cross-cultural encounters and yes, so often, of violence and indifference to sufferings. #History #Empire #colonized #Violence #KnowledgeManagement

I continually see research papers and presentations given on how #childhood #trauma relates to likelihood of #chronicpain.

While I do not dismiss this may be a factor, I am very frustrated at the lack of introspection by many #physicians where #medicaltrauma due to care that 1/
was dismissive, shaming, manipulative and lacked transparency does a great deal of harm leading to PTSD & I would postulate the worsening of #pain & or #disease. It’s as if the model, is backwards. Don’t get me wrong I absolutely believe #trauma can have long lasting impacts 2/
impacts that impact multiple areas. What I don’t understand is how many physicians don’t understand how care for children & youth w #rare or #complex #health issues or/and ones that include #pain can lead to #MH issues (not always be the cause). Why is it difficult for some 3/

A #mustread book.

Having finished it, one of my big takeaways is that Savarkar--a major early articulator of Hindutva--embraced religiously-focused violence, as a virtuous activity for Hindus, again and again.

#Hindutva #violence Image
Savarkar's views on violence went far back. For example, in the early 1900s, Savarkar and Mahatma Gandhi discussed the Ramayana and Gita, two Hindu texts.

Gandhi saw the violence in both as metaphors. Savarkar saw it as real and a justification for more Hindu-enacted violence.
In fact, Savarkar saw Hindus as the original colonizers of India, in a sort of mythological blow-up of the theory of Aryan invasions (a theory at the time).

Here's the kicker -- For Savarkar, this early Hindu colonization was a good thing, to be celebrated.

How fake news has been deployed by the Pak and Islamists in #Leicester to generate the victim-hood narrative, while simultaneously unleashing violence on others over the past few weeks.

Leicester: A case study
First Claim: The narrative of how ‘Racist Hindus’ provoking Muslims, was widely shared on social media by several Islamist handles.

Fact: Videos circulated on social media were of a mob shouting ‘Allah hu Akbar’.

(2/n)
Second Claim: Racist Hindu mob raised anti-Islam slogans on streets was widely shared by Islamists & local media (without any evidence).

Fact: Mob was shouting slogans of ‘Vande Mataram’ & ‘Jai Shri Ram’ to protest the violence against them, indicating no communal angle.

Pour toutes #femmes victimes de violences que j’ai pu rencontrer, accompagner et aider pendant mes douze ans de mandat, l’abnégation c’est elles qui l’ont.
Quand elles sont mises au secret, quand elles doivent tout reconstruire parce que ça a commencé par une gifle.
Quand elles ont survécu à des coups de couteau, qu’elles ont été laissées pour morte.
Vous leur crachez dessus en disant qu’une gifle, une privation de liberté, une bousculade c’est rien !
Je vous méprise au plus haut point !

Therapist 🧵: #Narcissistic Fixated Stalking. #Stalking is illegal in almost every country in the world, but that doesn't mean those who are stalked get the help they need. Stalking is on the Increase due to social media, lack of knowledge by law enforcement as to what #illegal
To do with them, their high levels of manipulation & the law not keeping up with current times. Clusters B's are well known for stalking & taking revenge when they don't get what they want from you. Narcissists & psychopaths are even known to kill your pets.
They may contact your employee With outright lies, stalk you both online & offline & accuse you of stalking them. Stalking is something narcissists (and other cluster B's) love to engage in. It gives them power, control & yes, entertainment #dysfunctional

Therapist Thread 🧵 The difficulty in treating 'self-hatred'. BPD, other PD's, autism, aspergers, gender dysphoric clients who often present with extreme self-hatred. They have a great need to avoid their subjective internal experience or deflect it with external anger of hatred
They may be there in therapy but emotionally avoid, highly dissociate &/ or use drugs & alcohol, are hostile ("I hate all people", "no-one can help me", Shame- prone, isn't regular with appointments, never had a role model that cared for them in their life #therapy #hatredofself
Patients who attack themselves verbally or other is distressing for the #therapist The client has often hidden the level of self hatred they have. They have adapted in ways to hide this from themselves & others. Some feel they are punished by fate or karma. Some can't show how

What actually happens when women are denied abortions, a 🧵 from a @UCSF study:
1/4 Denying a woman an #abortion creates economic hardship + insecurity which lasts for years: Abortion denial lowers credit scores, increases #debt, bankruptcies+evictions
ansirh.org/sites/default/…
2/4 Women turned away from getting an abortion are more likely to stay in contact with a violent partner, increasing their risk of murder. They are also more likely to raise the resulting child alone. #IPV #violence #domesticviolence
3/4 The financial wellbeing and development of living #children is negatively impacted when their mothers are denied abortion. Carrying an unwanted pregnancy to term is associated with poorer maternal bonding, such as feeling trapped, resenting the baby.

and we strongly discourage others from doing so.
To promote peace& stability, to deliver essential humanitarian support to the Afghan people& to address shared concerns on security, there is no alternative to engaging pragmatically with the current administration of Afghanistan.

Therapist Tip 👉🏻The Power of 'NO': the word "no" is a 'boundary'. It is a word that establishes or defines the space between you & someone else. It demands respect & is supposed to be learnt learnt through childhood development. It is a universal cue that people use #boundaries
to let others know that you are not OK about something. Boundaries are designed to keep you safe &/or establish ground rules for the relationship. One of the earliest indicators of #RedFlags in toxic people/relationships is a lack of Respect/empathy for the word "no" #SafetyFirst
This lack of respect is an 'indicator' that someone has a character/personality problem &/or flaw. If a person in your life refuses to listen or respect your "no", you may need help because you now have a 'relational' problem

@dasmaran : "It is important to stand up in a conservative country like Indonesia to make women feel empowered and to make them understand that they can navigate the whole world" #empowerment #womenpower

This is not how supply and demand economic theory WORKS people?!?!? #EndDemand initiatives for #SexWork does NOT enable #trafficking. Think about it. Let’s kick this #EndDemand can all the way down the road, shall we?
#Trafficking is a crime. Pimping is a crime. #DMST is a crime And they STAY crimes under #FullDecrim. Full stop. BUT we STOP arresting adult consensual #SexWorkers AND we don’t entrap their clients in stings. The BONUS is we ALSO stop arresting A LOT of victims of #SexTrafficking
Supporting #EndDemand initiatives is a knee jerk reaction to a complicated problem. But NOT ARRESTING grown adults for adult consensual behavior (that is perfectly legal if they do it for free) is not such a crazy idea. It actually makes a LOT of sense if you step back a bit

This thread is being woven, the week Michael Cruickshank was sentenced to jail in #NZ for threatening to blow our #WomanPrimeMinister’s head off & to “..wipe you off this f---planet”- Also arrested this week Richard Sivell who has allegedly been posting threatening messages.
Here you can take a look at #OnlineAbuse ~ ⬇️ is a really useful article by @shesource & @WMCLive that names online hostile behaviour, how it is that #Women are targeted, & explains why “online harassment exists on a continuum with offline violence”
