Policy goes far beyond what is required by the Equality Act, which rightly forbids discrimination on the grounds of gender reassignment. Indeed, the doctrine clearly contravenes the law in one respect. The Act also protects sexual orientation, but if gender identity supersedes

“I’m not scared of the ADL or its predictable, racist smear campaigns,” he said. “

If someone confesses a belief in values deemed to be ‘extreme’, they are on the path to violence and should be referred to #Prevent; those who do not or no longer believe in these values are deemed ‘safe’.
But there is scant evidence to suggest that such an approach works
The focus on ideological factors, as found in Prevent, ignores a host of other causes behind violence, and assumes a linear progression between #thought and #action.
It also means that it is almost impossible to assess whether Prevent is having any positive impact

The findings show an absence of a systematic and coordinated plot to take over these schools and an absence of any concerted and deliberate plot to promote radicalisation and violent extremism of Muslim children in these schools or elsewhere
language used to talk about the issues of “radicalisation” & “extremism” is itself the subject of considerable debate (Kundnani 2012; Lynch 2013). There is also a difficulty in understanding fully these issues cos there is a lack of an objective or universally accepted definition
It also provided an opportunity to discuss and generate a dialogue about the significance of the 'Trojan Horse’ scandal and the duty placed on schools after the scandal to promote Fundamental British Values (FBV) in the promotion of #democracy.

Note how media, think-tanks mute on this radicalism that is indoctrinating the nations kids from nursery ?
R they scared of these radicals ?
Can there be a greater 'enemy within' than the media-manufactured one
The immediate assumption was that this had been a deliberate terrorist attack committed by a Muslim. This proved to be correct. The international media coverage was widespread, immediate & intense.
Police quickly established that the attack had been pre-meditated and that the victims had been targeted for one specific reason: they were Muslims. Several days later, Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau labelled the attack as “terrorism”.

As a parent, you are forced to address your own baggage and internal biases in order to parent from a secure and healthy place.
And while the parenting industrial complex encourages us to do this with regards to our own emotional makeup, we very rarely take the time
we very rarely take the time to interrogate how a media landscape that constantly positions the Muslim and Islam as ‘Other’, has impacted our sense of belief and practice.

@whywouldyou_uk found an amazing talk with him & another guy I don't know (will share for the comedy value)
It's beautiful to hear the upper classes talk, sneer & discuss their anxieties,
some legitimate with deeply held racism.
They discuss how apocalyptic voices like Powell prophecies 1/@whywouldyou_uk Enoch Powell & other anti-immigrants voices prophecies underestimated how many immigrants would take over, I.e London
You have to hear it
Thousands in comments welcome their racism

“The representation of Muslims on screen feeds the policies that get enacted, the people that get killed, the countries that get invaded. The data doesn’t lie. This study shows us the scale of the problem in popular film & its cost is measured in lost potential and lost lives.”
pointed out the shortcomings of Marvel blockbuster Black Panther (“one of the most woke progressive mainstream moments in our culture in recent years”) in which Muslims appear in the opening scenes as terrorists carrying out a kidnap.

The man with autogynephilia more often than not has a fantasy of being submissive and, to indulge in this fantasy, has to rope in the only person available- his wife- who is usually varying degrees of unwilling. He then sets all of the parameters
He then sets all of the parameters of the encounter and acts out submission, persuading and coercing his wife to take the supposedly dominant role,” writes Cleckley.
