#Australia: your menfolk continue to do you proud #qanda
Almost 3wks since I was on #Australian TV show #qanda & asked “How many rapists must we kill before men stop raping women?” The show was banned from rebroadcast, the ABC is investigating, a minister has commented, and white Australian men are still whining
It is instructive that my question - an imagined scenario of violence as a form of defense against rapists - triggers an investigation and more rage and complaints than ACTUAL daily violence against women does. AND it is met with threats of rape against me. Oh the irony 🙃 #qanda
- Do men think they’re entitled to raping us?
- Do they think we shouldn’t have the right to defend ourselves against their violence?
- Do they think we won’t defend ourselves?
- Are they scared that we will?

*asking for a friend
It is especially telling that just yesterday some misogynist lizard actually published this drivel (L), calling feminism a “terrorist movement.” Just like the #Saudi regime (R) calls feminism “extremism.” White supremacist misogynists and the Saudi regime have a lot in common.
I am actually on a train heading to Boston to talk about digital feminism in the Arab Gulf with #Saudi feminist scholar @Hala_Aldosari. I can tell you undoubtedly #Australian white men’s systematic hate vs me is WORSE than that sent my way by Saudi regime after I helped Rahaf.
Fuck the patriarchy in every universe and every time zone.
