On #InternationalWomensDay2023, special shout out to Reem Alsalem UN Special Rapporteur on Violence against Women and Girls. @UNSRVAW, is a very challenging UN role right now, in a world that seems to be waging a new #waronwomen the #femalesex, and especially on our #oneday

Reem, we saw and heard your @UNSRVAW words in your report to #CEDAW committee on Feb. 24.

We hope you don't mind us boosting what your important platform and the type of work you're trying to have heard.

“I would encourage the CEDAW Committee to spell out how to take into consideration the characteristics of sex and sex-based rights in the design and implementation of inclusive measures...

Auch wenn das Geschlecht ein gesetzlich geschütztes Merkmal ist, können Männer darauf zugreifen, während Frauen niemals auf die geschützte „Geschlechtsidentität“ zugreifen können, weil sie Frauen sind.

#Selbstbestimmungsgesetz #WarOnWomen

Nur Männer können diesen zusätzlichen rechtlichen Schutz im Bereich der Frauenrechte geltend machen, was sie zur geschützteren und mächtigeren „Frau“ macht, sobald sie dies wünschen.

In einer Konfliktsituation, an der fast immer die am stärksten gefährdeten Frauen beteiligt sind, fällt die “Geschlechtsidentität” wie eine Jokerkarte immer zugunsten des Mannes. Frauen wird gesagt, sie müssten in ihren Räumen Männer akzeptieren oder sie nicht benutzen.

This week, ACLU filed a Motion to Intervene in WoLF’s California lawsuit challenging SB 132, which allows men who self-identify as women into women-only prisons:… 1/6
Lambda Legal, the Transgender Law Center, and the ACLU foundations of Northern California and Southern California are representing four incarcerated men along with the Transgender Gender-Variant & Intersex Justice Project (“TGIJP”). 2/6
The ACLU objects to the state’s choice to slow the transfer the more than 300 men who have sought transfer to women’s facilities, one-third of whom are sex offenders (though the ACLU denies this documented, material fact in its court pleadings). 3/6

1/9 Recently I got pulled out of class for a “little chat”. I was told I had been reported for making “offensive comments”. Without ascertaining my version of events or even asking if the “reports” were true, it was clear my teacher had already decided I was guilty. #SexMatters
2/9 The only thing I’m guilty of is expressing perfectly sensible and legitimate views! Plus, since when is offending someone a big deal? People take offence at all kinds of things. Such is life and we all just have to deal with it. #BiologyIsNotBigotry #SexNotGender #SexMatters
3/9 I suspect, although I still don’t know for certain, that these “offensive comments” were actually facts that I discussed with a few classmates when they asked for my opinion. #WomenWontWheesht #WomensRightsAreHumanRights #IStandWithJKRowling #WeWillBeHeard #IStandWithMaya

THREAD: "Michigan Witches Against Patriarchy" rally in Lansing to call for an END to "abusive language" & "attacks on fem elected officials" (Gov Whitmer, AG Nessel & SOS Benson and others) by #MIGOP misogynists Shirkey & Weiser.

Statement @Eclectablog👉…
The #MiWAP #Lansing #Protest is about Republican MEN (recently @RonaldWeiser @MIGOP Chair & @SenMikeShirkey) & ON-GOING use of "Patriarchal Violence" & verbal assaults on women in leadership & #MILeg.

READ @BarbByrum's "Misogyny in Michigan" @Eclectablog👇
What's "Patriarchal Violence" (PV) and why is it dangerous to ALL Michiganders, not just women in politics? It's hate, oppression, and growing.

Why is everyone suddenly, overwhelmingly campaigning for Trans Rights? What's up? It's 2020 and more stuff happened; it's affecting child safeguarding, education, women's rights, LGB and Transgender organizations, gay "conversion therapy" bans, and elections. #cdnpoli #nbelection
Trans Rights Extremism Explained
What's the fuss, you ask? Long story in a nutshell, groups often have an extremist side; for the Transgender community, theirs are Trans Rights Activists (TRAs) aka Gender Identity Campaigners (GICs). Pro-Trans allies found a red flag.
But, Trans Rights is a good thing, isn't it? Yes. Of course. Trans health, Trans mental health, medicare, etc. Trans identified individuals—social media influencers—can explain best the risks (see @BuckAngel @MsBlaireWhite @ScottNewgent @Rose_Of_Dawn).

1. This is a thread about the #GenderWooWoo that has been on the last years. Its about how it has impacted children, esp. girls, and women, developing into a #WarOnWomen And how my country Norway has come to take leading role in this war.
2. For many, Norway stands as a symbol of equality between the sexes. True, Norway was a pioneer when it came to secure women's sex based rights, namely throug Law of equality between the sexes and through securing women's right to abortion.
3. In the course of only few years, the base for these rights have been erased due to successful lobbying by small but powerful minority groups. The strategies are well known as they are described in detail by the group's international network IGLYO.

My little sis @Sal_Robins got suspended from Twitter for 7 days yesterday for daring to call someone who IDs as transgender a “trans identified male” & pointing out the danger of appointing this male in a woman’s managerial position on a women’s locked psych ward. Twitter 1/

Do you live in Britain? Have you suffered abuse, oppression and marginalisation?

Well @OwenJones84 is here to tell you about one of the most besieged, marginalised and oppressed minorities in Britain. That's right, you got it....trans people
Now, in this ridiculous language minefield I need you to understand that trans people is referring to MEN like this.

A proud "lesbian with a massive cock"

Poor marginalised bastard.
Trans people no longer means those who suffer from gender dysphoria and would find a huge amount of mental discomfort lifted by transitioning. Trans people means men like this and if you don't call them a woman you're a bigot, a TERF....

Everyone linking that thread from Rebecca somebody on how sex is sooooo complicated is missing the point feminism makes completely. Women were oppressed long before chromosomes could be seen, before we had current technology to map many intersex variations.
Men knew who to rape, who child brides were and are, who to deny education to, who to deny property rights, the right to vote, right to have bank accounts ect ect ect. Sex was not complicated enough to blur the line of who experiences sexism.
No trans women or trans girls or cross dressing males or third gender role occupying males faced this systemic sexism. No modern trans women do either. No misogynistic nb White bearded men like the one from Maya’s case do either

"We just want to pee.
And use your changing rooms.
And shower beside you in the gym.
And sleep beside you in the hostel.
Also sleep beside you in hospital.
And if you’re a lesbian, we want to fuck you with our lesbian penis.
We just want to take your allotted women’s shortlist spaces.
And win your women in STEM or business or arts awards.
And count as you for pay gap data.
Also for the crime we commit, when counted statistically.
We really just want to pee.
And also play on your rugby and football teams.
And win your gold medals and set your world records.
And your women’s scholarships.
What difference does it make to you how someone identifies?
We just want to pee.

1/6 So, a well-meaning comrade asked me a very simple, commonsensical question: 'Why are u so focused on the trans backlash? It doesn't affect you directly, it's kinda weird.'

If women lose, half of the working class loses. How does that not directly affect socialist organisers?
2/6 Socialists exist in order to help the exploited & oppressed discover their collective strength through organising and direct such efforts towards achieving their class interests.

We work to raise morale within the working class. We don't solve problems in its name.
3/6 When women lose their hard-won rights it directly affects the whole of the class. The context is still set by the 2008 crisis that hasn't resolved for 11yrs. Austerity hit women the hardest & is followed by legalising prostitution & surrogacy and banning abortion. #WarOnWomen

1. I keep hearing 'It's complicated' Use the correct language & everything becomes much clearer. Should men be allowed in women's sports? Should men be allowed in women's prisons? Should men be allowed on all women shortlist?
2. Should men be allowed in women's domestic violence centres? Should men be allowed in female toilets? Should men be allowed in female changing rooms? Should boys be allowed in the girl guides? Should boys be allowed to sleep in girls tents?
3. Should boys be allowed to shower with the girls? Should women who offer a single sex service be forced to touch a man's genitals?....... Language matters #waronwomen #waxmyballs #waxherballs

@rickygervais We got here because women are being silenced.

They're called TERF and bigot. They're losing their jobs and being assaulted. They're not able to meet safely to discuss. They are being replaced on committees and in politics by men.

@rickygervais They're being banned from social media and thrown out of organisations that used to put children first. They are seeing all the hard won, necessary rights and safe spaces being removed.

@rickygervais They are being reduced to 'menstruators' and 'uterus havers' and 'people who are pregnant'. They are being forced to go to court to say they won't touch a man's genitalia. They are being coerced in courts to lie. They are being visited by the police for 'wrongthink'

Poo boy decided to try to get my pages taken down rather than make good on his promise to answer questions. Too bad, I'd love for one of these trans activists to actually give a truthful response to that one.

The TRA trolls have set their sights on me and are trying to get me banned from all the internets.
They got the post taken down on fb, soi f you like this meme you may want to save it while you can.
It's interesting, innit, how literally showing their own words is considered...
(cont.) scary and harmful...
He posted his "ask me anything" on my page btw, so I just took him up on the offer.
Anyway, these misogynists are trying to add me to the long list of feminists they've silenced, so if I disappear for a while, you'll know why.

This is a detailed piece of work by a volunteer women's group in Scotland. It explains why many feminists on the left oppose self id of sex, as such policies hurt vulnerable women & girls. It's a good introduction if you are new to the #waronwomen issue
The report says some women are self excluding from services because they fear there is no single sex provision - including intimate care. Equality Act 2010 allows for these services to be female only -as these lawyers make clear - but the law is ignored
I was disturbed by the report's section on prisons, as I spoke directly to the senior source myself. Vulnerable women exposed to male rage and sexual obscenities. These women didn't consent to intact trans identifying males in shower rooms or common areas

More proof that I’m #genderfree - none of these “11 Cisgender Privileges You Didn't Know You Had” apply to me. THREAD.…
“1 - Bathroom Safety”. No. As a woman I’m safe in single sex loos, and those at my workplace and the changing room at my old gym are all now “all genders”. (I’ve complained that this is exclusionary as I don’t have a gender - watch this space.) #genderfree
“2. Cis ppl don’t have to choose between feeling invisible or being othered.” As a petite woman, the wrong side of 40, often with children in tow, I am unfortunately also invisible. #genderfree

Porn is about male dominance, porn is about telling all women 'know your place'. It is therefore no surprise that porn is being used to bully and sexually harass women in the work place. Thread.
The use of porn to bully and victimise female paramedics is across the U.K. From Bristol 'Female paramedics have been 'forced to watch pornography, give sexual favours and have been physically propositioned' while working at the ambulance service which serves Bristol'.
