Something I wrote/said has been banned by:
-Egypt,article on domestic violence, 1981
-Saudi Arabia,columns on feminism & anti-Mubarak protests,2006
-Pakistan,column on Muslim women & sex,2016
-Australia, for asking “how many rapists must we kill before men stop raping women?”2019

And yet, white Australian men keep tweeting their ignorant whataboutery @ me, demanding “Why aren’t you fighting vs patriarchy in Egypt/Saudi Arabia/anywhere but here?” I fight it in all places incl Australia which has more in common with Egypt & Saudi Arabia than it wants to see
