There's far too much #bull being rattled around this ref. proposal. Wake up #Ireland folks; yes, we need to amend wording to reflect reality, ensure equality of responsibility is norm; no, it would be terminally stupid to throw it all out altogether,reduce legal standing of all/1
2/ from potentially exploitative employers' points of view. Amendment should not mean rescinding basic tenets on protecting #economic position of wo/men w children & of childrens' rights to home & care there, it should mean updating in line with values & mores of us now & ongoing
3/ See the shiiiiit-stirrrrring for what it is: #brexit deflector #Border deflector #EU agreement deflector #criminalcase going down deflector #Referendum #Women of #Ireland you're way brighter than that, get a grip. And trolls can just bot off with themselves. Hi @TransparentRef
4/ You're being used & re-used, left, right & centre, according to your heavily mined predilictions, ideologies, social groups, job categories, geog. locations, personal lifestyles, need I go on? What have you not learnt from last times round? Or frm across the water either side?
5/ Have a look at this too:…
6/Wo/men who care for children(incl. infants, disabled, developmental issues etc)seen as under-utilised employment fodder; taking away as opposed to amending constitution wording completely in a society/economy with almost NONE of the necessary #social #economic #infrastructure
7/ for supporting wo/men & children is off the wall. #Homes are made by #families in groups of all kinds, many have one or more children, & provide for their daily care, nurture, wellbeing & development. The #state does not do this IN ANY TYPE OF FACILITY WITH COHERENT OR EVEN
8/BASIC SAFETY as we see regularly. WE HAVE NO. REPEAT< NO> adequate let alone good or equally accessible & available #childcare facilities & provision. Costs, often for below-standard childcare routinely cripple young families of all sorts in #Ireland This is just <1> of issues
9/ Here's a #video that's about #inequality Watch it through please. lets do everything we can do not exacerbate inequalites here - Amend wording - regulate & support…
10/ Empowerment, equality, in the living of a person's life these are not abstract terms, they are actualities which we bring into being & hold through concrete intended actions. Don't bandy terms about like bananas #ThinkMore
