For me, the real issue in the #trans#GRA reform is #maleviolence against #female & trans. I note #transmen seem to be absent from discussion. They obvs don't present as #women so don't use women's spaces. But they can't draw attention to themselves as trans because... (1/2)
(2/2) in a male space they would run the risk of attack by men who would see their bodies as still female. I can't find stats on transmen being violent, or female violence on transmen. I guess there will be some, but very small no's. The problem is male violence. #patriarchy...
So we need to be looking at #male#violence and how/why our society raises #boys to think violence is a way of dealing with the world. NB I know this is a generalisation and not all males are violent & not all females are peaceful!
THE TRUMP-HITLER COMPARISON.
Is there any comparison? Between the way the campaigns of Donald #Trump and Adolf #Hitler should have been treated by the #media and the culture? The way the media should act now? The problem of #normalization?
Because I’d written a book called Explaining Hitler several editors had asked me, during the #campaign, to see what could be said on the subject.
Until the morning after the election I had declined them.
In my 8yrs on the Council, I have convened 7 hearings on #trauma, each with a different focus. Although more work remains, I am encouraged to hear that many of the recs offered up by impacted persons & communities at our hrgs & listening sessions were integrated into new system
Yeah... he lost to a George Soros AGGRESSIVE Communist Activist she hides under the guise of affiliation to the "Democratic Socialist Party" loudly promotes un-vetted illegal immigration, human trafficking, BLM, etc. +Promises to abolish ICE & Govt controlled/mandated Healthcare
I condemn in the strongest words possible the stigmatization of the mentally ill in the wake of mass shootings. Included below is a well sourced discussion thread that I had with Dr. Megan Ranney, leader of @AFFIRM, for #gunviolence prevention. usnews.com/opinion/policy…
The media and legislators must stop pointing blame at the mentally ill with a broad brush in the wake of shootings. It is so stigmatizing. Doesn't appropriately target the small subset of VIOLENT individuals and worsens the ability of people with mental illness to get care.
The ACP cautions against broadly including those with mental illness in a category of dangerous individuals, but recommends every effort be made to reduce the risk of suicide and violence, through prevention and treatment, by the subset of Violent patients
The guy who violently assaulted me last year is allowed to come to #34C3. I was notified about it on Christmas Eve when I was at the buildup.
Aggravated assault here stands for hurting me and strangling me several times till I couldn't breathe. I did not see it coming, and I did not fight back.
And I reported that to #34C3 on August 31 requesting a safe event. I made all my documents available upon request.
#34C3 still admitted him because in this situation "we do not really know what happened" even after providing official documents regarding the event.
Refuse Fascism's flyers and website CLAIM they want peaceful protest until Trump is out of office. Sounds harmless, until you look closely at who is behind this group. Hint: Nov. 4th is RUSSIA'S UNITY DAY. 🇷🇺🇷🇺🇷🇺 Thread 1 #ThursdayThoughts#GeeksResist#RefuseFascism
