It is instructive that the two times I’ve been on newspaper front pages have been because I offended and upset patriarchy: today in this Rupert Murdoch-owned newspaper in #Australia and in 2017 in a pro-regime paper in #Egypt
I’m on a front page in #Australia because I said “fuck” on Monday’s episode of TV show Q & A and drew an imaginary scenario of violence against men that upset some viewers more than the actual violence men subject women to daily. #qanda
And in 2017, I was on that front page in an #Egyptian paper - which called me a “sex activist” - because I called Trump the American Sisi (in a column I wrote for the New York Times.)
Fuck the patriarchy in #Australia. Fuck the patriarchy in #Egypt. Fuck the patriarchy everywhere. Here’s my reaction to the ABC’s investigation of that episode of #qanda, and I include video of my “offensive” language and so-called incitement of violence
Apparently, there were 53 complaints to the ABC about our episode of #qanda. How many women in #Australia are killed by men every year? How many raped every year? How many women must be killed or raped before complaints are filed to the patriarchy? Where is THAT investigation?
Murdoch-owned newspaper (L).
Pro-regime newspaper (R).
Same same. They protect the same powers and they come after those of us who oppose them. #Australia #Egypt #FuckThePatriarchy
