.@Netflix produced an entire 6-part series on #MalcolmX without any #women scholars. We would like to let #WhoKilledMalcomX directors & producers @philbhere, @Rdretzin, @yoshaylaharris & @Nani_Ife know that #Womenalsoknowhistory. We exist and refuse to be ignored. @wkmxdocseries
Contrary to popular belief, there are many women scholars who are experts on the Civil Rights Movement, Black Power, and Black nationalism. Our database includes many. Here are just a few women scholars you should have asked to add greater depth to your series.

OK @BBCNews, over the last 10 years on Social Media, I have been called a cunt, bitch, whore, ugly, stupid, insane, vicious, foul, a hag, a Facist, a spineless Leftie Liberal, a Satanist, a Feminazi, an Anti-Semite, a betrayer

Around 5 years ago I first encountered the vitriolic attacks on #women asserting their right to politically self-organise from so-called trans-rights activists in a socialist group I associated with at the time. Having been active in radical left... /1

(1/19) I left off yesterday with the #Taliban seizure of #Kabul in Sept. 1996. The #UnitedStates & much of the international community had largely ignored #Afghanistan since the 1989 Soviet withdrawal, so US policymakers, journalists, & others were startled by the Taliban's

The westerner make us believe that their own culture and tradition is better than ours. You're not at faulty that you're miseducated, but you're at fault that you didn't re-educate yourself.
Please read with unbiased mindset. Leave bias mind at a corner.
Genderaditions give no room or recognised regard for women and feminine. Let it be known that this is outright piece of shit which can only be taken by idiotic idiots who know nothing about there tradition.
At this point I will like to digress a bit; you can only know and be able to compare or agree to or disagree with anything about your tradition if you have deep knowledge of his or her culture where there is embodiment of language, music, cloth,

Young #lesbians are part of the reason I resist the trans ideology. As a lesbian who came out in the 80s I have seen trans activists co-opt our struggles and orgs while shaming & guilt-tripping young lesbians into accepting "lady-cock" or even pressuring them into transitioning.
There are worldwide issues with #lesbians being shamed and abused by trans ppl and I won't support #lesbophobia or an abusive ideology that denies the biological reality of sexed bodies and same-sex attraction.
Lesbians have been fighting for our spaces for decades. The assault on lesbian communities has only gotten worse.

My 43 #goals for the #43rdParliament #canpoli #cdnpoliKeep your promises
1.Work with Opposition not in opposition
2.Change Minister for Women and Gender Equality to Minister of Women and Gender Equity. Equality and equity are not the same thing.
3. Remove the Rural Economic Development component from the Minister for Women and Gender. It should stand alone or be added to Agriculture.
4. 42nd Parliament goal=Women & Gender should stand alone. When considering intersecting identities, the Minister has plenty on her plate
5.Increase the number of Black people in Cabinet.
6.Increase the number of Black people in Governor-in-Council appointments.
7.Name an experienced Black individual to head the new Anti-Racism Secretariat within the Department of Canadian Heritage.

Dear Dissident Right,

If we're going to identify every woman who does something wrong as a #women and make her representative of all women we need to do same for men.

Why do we let men run our country when we know the role they've played in destroying it? #Churchill #Blair
White women are as anti mass migration as white men. Yet this ⬇️

If you think we're always nice and kind. Think again.
White women are not being protected by white men. On the contrary young white girls in the UK have been abandoned by just about everyone

100's of 1,000's of them, maybe half a million.

If #WeThePeople truly want to return the #USA to the #RuleOfLaw we need to let the #Justice system's processes unfold #Patiently. #Hearsay is not proof of #Guilt. You need #Evidence, & you need a #Trial. #Constitution #DOJ #Law
But the case of #Dershowitz is even more fraught with risk. Because he is a #Lawyer and a #Law #scholar/#professor, & he has been hired by some of those charged to #Defend them, the #DOJ cannot allow anything which appears like #Obstruction of #Justice. Let the #RuleOfLaw unfold
If #Dershowitz's clients are #Guilty, then it will be #proven in a #fair #trial. Then, if there really is some evidence that he did something wrong, it will come out. Accepting a free #Plane ride is not wrong. Visiting an #Island is not wrong.

The Bab & Baha'u'llah illuminated a society and an age shrouded in darkness. They inaugurated a new stage in social evolution: the stage of the unification of the entire human family. #Bahai #TheBab #Bahaullah
The spiritual energies They released into the world infused a new life into every sphere of endeavor, the results of which are evident in the transformation that has occurred.
Material civilization has advanced immeasurably; astounding breakthroughs in #science and #technology have been achieved; the gates to the accumulated #knowledge of humanity have been flung open.

Since these false accusations are regurgitated ad-nauseum here, use this #Thread to counter accusations of #Apartheid, and reply to tantrum tossing lifelong losers who squeal that the world should #Boycott, #Sanction and #Divest from #Israel #BDS
An attempt to disguise hatred and propaganda with a facade of humanitarian concern is quite apparent for all to see. As stated on many occasions if you're looking for apartheid in The Middle East and accuse Israel you have the wrong address!
In #Israel #Arabs have more rights that they would have anywhere else in the region, and every poll result shows they consistently prefer to remain in Israel rather than live in a future #Palestinian state.
