“If we could, we would get on a plane and we would be on the front line with them," Argentine abortion rights activist Rosana Fanjul showing solidarity & support w/women of Poland who have been protesting a court ruling imposing near-total ban on abortion
Some protestors in Poland cover their faces with green handkerchiefs, which are the symbol of the abortion rights movement in #Argentina, which legalised abortion last month in a landmark move #StrajkKobiet #NiUnaMenos
“When the fascist fucks in your country use a pandemic to tighten their grip on your body with a near total ban on abortion, the path to freedom must be paved with profanity. Politeness is capitulation.

And Polish feminists know it.”

I’m a massive fan of profanity. We must recognize that the ubiquitous ways patriarchy socializes women to shrink themselves - physically and intellectually - extend also into language, into what we can and cannot say. feministgiant.com/p/essay-why-i-… #WhyISayFuck
At the heart of that policing, standing guard over our language like a baton ready to strike, is civility. Patriarchy reserves for itself the power to offend, the power to be obscene. (This Australian TV episode was banned from rebroadcast)
Patriarchy wastes no time in policing women’s mouths as vehemently as it does the genitals of anyone who not a cisgender heterosexual man. Profanity is an essential tool in disrupting patriarchy and its rules.

This is what happened between me and @SethAbramson on Saturday. I don’t follow him but when he claimed he’d written the first look at women of the insurrection several people tagged me and alerted him that I’d written an article on women of insurrection on January 10 Tweet by Seth Abramson: New...

Fed up as I am with the consistent refusal to take seriously the danger of white women like Marjorie Taylor Greene, I suggest you forget the Bechdel Test & follow my If so-and-so was a Muslim Test: If Marjorie Taylor Greene was a Muslim she'd be in Gitmo feministgiant.com/p/if-marjorie-…
If the white women who stormed the Capitol were Muslim, they would have been called “fanatics” and “extremists,” and vilified for the violence they committed, not constantly remembered by loved ones as the best version of themselves. feministgiant.com/p/white-women-…
If Amy Coney Barrett was a Muslim, her zealotry would have been pathologized, not earn her a lifetime post on the highest court in the land. feministgiant.com/p/if-amy-coney…
