@ClareICHH @IrishTimes @RadQueersResist @Wheelie_Happy @tcddublin @daimbarrs @ilainabananas @AineMulloy I'm surpassed #ThankUNext,
now at 'Thanks But No Thanks We Don't Need White People Judging Whether Our Cause Has Merit Or If We Should Yield And Let Our "Success Or Contribution To Feminism" Be Erased *Just A Little Bit* To Make Ethnonationalists More Comfy With Their Mistakes'
@ClareICHH @IrishTimes @RadQueersResist @Wheelie_Happy @tcddublin @daimbarrs @ilainabananas @AineMulloy Also - our "success or contribution to feminism" shaped Irish constitution without having a vote. We *are* Irish Feminists - our core tenets of intersectionality don't even all exist in British/American Feminism.

If you just mean 'white feminists' say it with your whole chest.
@ClareICHH @IrishTimes @RadQueersResist @Wheelie_Happy @tcddublin @daimbarrs @ilainabananas @AineMulloy I have to say it's a bit more than having 'felt unrepresented' when POCs, Queer and Trans and Disabled women all...were.
That's not an emotion, that's a fact.
But it's v in-keeping with their view that if an 'Irish feminist' looks in the mirror - they'd be none of those things.
@ClareICHH @IrishTimes @RadQueersResist @Wheelie_Happy @tcddublin @daimbarrs @ilainabananas @AineMulloy hey hi listen to @AineMulloy's views on the matter as she is often more conversational in tone than me trying to fastidiously maintain neutrality where possible 😅
@ClareICHH @IrishTimes @RadQueersResist @Wheelie_Happy @tcddublin @daimbarrs @ilainabananas @AineMulloy wanted to make a pun about how I hope ppl get in 'Ní Saoirse go Saoirse na mBan' the 'Ban' doesn't have a fada, and freedom for women shouldn't be restricted to white women, then realised I'm too uneducated in Irish - but point still stands. Nothing about us, without us.
@ClareICHH @IrishTimes @RadQueersResist @Wheelie_Happy @tcddublin @daimbarrs @ilainabananas @AineMulloy I'm glad to see that @WHAIreland have a speaker who has lived in Direct Provision, to contribute to their discussions on Contemporary lives of Women in Ireland! I'm unsure if there are any queer / disabled women in the lineup, but it's small progress!
@ClareICHH @IrishTimes @RadQueersResist @Wheelie_Happy @tcddublin @daimbarrs @ilainabananas @AineMulloy @WHAIreland The panel on women in #activism at @WHAIreland is unfortunately all white still but...to be honest I do not know of the contributors enough to know if there's queer or disabled representation at all, so all I can say is...I hope so.
@ClareICHH @IrishTimes @RadQueersResist @Wheelie_Happy @tcddublin @daimbarrs @ilainabananas @AineMulloy Ok adding a bit more to this TEDx / UT thread -

This time last year I was speaking at #FemFest2017 giving a #DiversityandInclusion workshop with Síona for NWCI - less aware of continued aggressions towards the marginalised by white folks, more patience, much longer hair!!
@ClareICHH @IrishTimes @RadQueersResist @Wheelie_Happy @tcddublin @daimbarrs @ilainabananas @AineMulloy It's disheartening that after meeting actually diverse media icons that day like @DilW, to see from that point on we've likely only regressed, much more victimised being called on blatant discrimination than listening to those with experience in reducing it via education!
@ClareICHH @IrishTimes @RadQueersResist @Wheelie_Happy @tcddublin @daimbarrs @ilainabananas @AineMulloy @DilW But stuff like this means, for anyone asking about my experience facilitating #DiversityandInclusion -

I have the experience necessary, to get 'Irish feminists' in a room, make them 'look in the mirror', ask questions of me, and work with me to build a better listening society.
@ClareICHH @IrishTimes @RadQueersResist @Wheelie_Happy @tcddublin @daimbarrs @ilainabananas @AineMulloy @DilW This is a bleak and highly poignant reminder also - to all those who think exclusion of marginalised groups is acceptable, and the excluders should be paid for the privilege while our push for equality is framed as 'unyielding rhetoric':
@ClareICHH @IrishTimes @RadQueersResist @Wheelie_Happy @tcddublin @daimbarrs @ilainabananas @AineMulloy @DilW Also here's a nice clear thread of my opinions on 'minorities' and what they actually mean in terms of #DiversityandInclusion in equal representation rather than actual numbers - pertaining to a @BJPsych editorial on gender equality in #choosepsychiatry -
@ClareICHH @IrishTimes @RadQueersResist @Wheelie_Happy @tcddublin @daimbarrs @ilainabananas @AineMulloy @DilW @bjpsych this is something more pertinent to #intersectionality (or lack thereof) in #Ireland specifically, and it's something we should all be mindful of!
@ClareICHH @IrishTimes @RadQueersResist @Wheelie_Happy @tcddublin @daimbarrs @ilainabananas @AineMulloy @DilW @bjpsych Guys so @TheresaNewIdea posted this pic of a book in Leinster House today and...it scarily me, tbh! Except maybe many foreign languages 😅
Here's to the polyglots, and migrants and troublemaker minorities changing modern #Ireland.
@ClareICHH @IrishTimes @RadQueersResist @Wheelie_Happy @tcddublin @daimbarrs @ilainabananas @AineMulloy @DilW It's sad that Irish politicians filibustering on #legisl8 propagate racist opinions, therefore further erasing and delegitimising the contribution of any #POC #Feminist to #RepealedThe8th.
