In my neighbourhood there was a serial sex predator breaking into women's homes and sexually assaulting them in their own beds. It's bad enough that women routinely have to take more precautions than men to do basic things like go for a walk or a jog. 1/ #sexualassault #crime
I can't describe to you what it's like to be afraid to do something as necessary as falling asleep in your own bed at night. This is what happened to many women in my neighbourhood. 2/ #VAW
At the time this was going on, a lot of women talked to me about their fear, about being afraid in their own homes, being unable to fall asleep or stay asleep in their own beds. There were a lot of exhausted women in my neighbourhood. 3/ #crime #fear

.@IWF calls on Congress to clarify federal law on campus sexual assault. #TitleIX #IWlaw #IWed #IWregs

@jaketapper @LucyFlores @CNNSotu @JoeBiden @TheCut "Offered" has a ring of solicitation in it. According to both @LucyFlores & numerous news footages of #Biden's #UnwantedTouching, he NEVER solicited consent, but took a #privilege that was not his to take. #OurBodiesOurHomes #OnlyYesMeansYes
@jaketapper @LucyFlores @CNNSotu @JoeBiden @TheCut 2/ And the audacity of of saying "And not once - never - did I believe I acted inappropriately. If it is suggested I did so, I will listen respectfully. But it was never my intention.
The 1st part, using his own assessment to measure others' feelings wo their input-cute!
@jaketapper @LucyFlores @CNNSotu @JoeBiden @TheCut 3/ I wonder, if @pewresearch or some other researchers (FYI, @ConversationEDU) did a #survey of accused/convicted #sexualharassment & #sexualassault predators, how many will offer that exact defense?
2nd part, #victimblaming. No, @JoeBiden, if u actually believed in...

Was the famous #AlfredEisenstaedt photo of the sailor kissing a woman who appeared to be a nurse, in #TimesSquare, on #VJDay, a #sexualassault? Contrary to accepted wisdom of the #MeToo crowd (whose goals I support, but whose excesses I deplore), probably not. Here's why: /1
First, it’s not clear who is in the photo. Is it #GretaZimmer or #EdithShain? #GeorgeMendonsa or #CarlMuscarello? Or one of the many other men who claimed to be kisser or women who claimed to be the kissee? It matters, because, absent a victim, there is no sexual assault. /2
Absent testimony, the law does not assume a man touching a woman on a photo is touching her sexually without her consent simply based on body language. It is one thing to #BelieveWomen women's stories, but quite another to PRESUME no consent. Luckily, that is not the law. /3

Dr. Christine Blasey Ford: My 2018 Heroine

(THREAD)

On September 27, 2018, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford raised her right hand, swore to tell the truth to the Senate Judiciary Committee, and changed history—especially of the #MeToo movement.

1/

#Sigma2018
While Brett Kavanaugh was ultimately confirmed to SCOTUS, Dr. Ford's testimony exampled that of a courageous survivor speaking truth to power on national television. This is how awareness is raised.

2/

#BelieveSurvivors
#Sigma2018
At first glance, Dr. Ford didn't appear to be courageous. In fact, she didn't believe herself to be. But as a fellow survivor, I know how much it takes to be fearful and to do what one thinks is right regardless. This IS courage.

10 THINGS MEN CAN DO TO PREVENT GENDER VIOLENCE @threadreaderapp 1. Approach sexual harassment & forms of #gender #violence as a MEN’S issue involving men of all ages & socioeconomic, racial/ ethnic backgrounds. View men not only as possible offenders, but as empowered bystanders
2. DON’T REMAIN SILENT
If someone you know is abusing his partner – or is disrespectful or abusive to girls and women in general – try to talk to him about it. Urge him to seek help. Or if you don’t know what to do, consult a friend. #SpeakUp #BystanderIntervention
3. HAVE THE COURAGE TO LOOK INWARD
Question your own attitudes. Don’t be defensive when something you do or say ends up hurting someone else. Try hard to understand how your own attitudes & actions might inadvertently perpetuate sexism and violence, & work towards changing them.

Kavanaugh lies multiple times about inconsequential facts. Does anyone really think he would tell the truth about the important facts? #IStandWithChristineBlaseyFord #NoToKavanaugh
Multiple classmates confirm he was a drunk, and he was belligerent during his hearing and disrespectful to the senators questioning him. #SubpoenaMarkJudge #KavaHELLNaugh
Dr Ford was incredibly credible witness. It’s time to open an FBI investigation and dig further into this man’s entitled background. #liarliar #FBIInvestigation #sexualassault #KavanaughVote

@lirivera @BostonGlobe #JunotDiaz was targeted for a takedown by 3 female fiction writers: #ZinziClemmons #CarmenMMachado #MonicaByrne. All: Read #apologizetoJunot & my thread (threadreaderapp.com/thread/1042140…). @forjustice2018 - audio of JD's respectful interaction w/ Machado who lied. #fauxfeminism #MeToofail
@lirivera @BostonGlobe @forjustice2018 Others (like bitter writer ex-gfs) jumped in like @realalisavaldes ("kiss-n-teller" he briefly dated 22 yrs ago, who blogged in 2008 to brag abt sleeping w him while on journalist duty!). And @lirivera (sensitive writer he had lunch w 1x). No evidence #JunotDiaz harassed women.
@lirivera @BostonGlobe @forjustice2018 @RealAlisaValdes Alisa Rivera: Your points are simply ur biased assumptions as a comm prof & former aspiring fiction writer who accused #JunotDiaz of sexually harassing & bullying u 15 yrs ago on a lunch date. U met him 1 time. He didn't tell u what u wanted to hear & tried to make up. U cried.

WOMEN - WHEN YOU ARE SEXUALLY ASSAULTED YOU MUST, MUST, MUST SPEAK UP AT THE TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (THREAD) #SexualAssault #Kavanaugh and the person to whom you need to speak up is YOU!
Don't wait until the shock wears off (if it ever does), right after you out of immediate danger, document EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENED TO YOU. Here are some ways:
Write it all down. Make multiple copies. Mail those copies separately to yourself as sealed certified letters. Years down the line you may want to open one and read it with your therapist. Years down the line you may want to give one to your parents or your spouse so

I'm one of a few million Americans awake when we should be sleeping because of the pain of #cancer or some other chronic illness.

Adding to our sleeplessness is knowing #healthcare is under threat. We may not be able to afford it due to the #GOP's actions.

It's terrorizing.
My parents were Civil Rights workers. My father was a Freedom Rider. As a small child I was taught the legacy of #MLK.
I watched people invoking MLK on Monday. Not in defense of #votingrights or in outrage over how the #SCOTUS ruled on two pivotal cases on gerrymandering.
2/
MLK wasn't being invoked for #votingrights but for Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who lies to America every day about policies that could very well kill me & others.

Policies that are hurting millions.

Policies that have kept me a citizen without equal rights in my own country.

Hi everyone! This is @sohni_c for @Smashboard_. One of the things I want to discuss today is how #sexualharassment and #sexualassault cases are reported in the media. The first issue is the tedious sensationalisation of these cases 1/n
Resulting in the focus remaining on the victim rather than the perpetrator. Hence, adding to stigma, shaming and victim-blaming of the women who face harassment and assault. Also, these attitudes result in reinforcing the #rapeculture where the victim is held at scrutiny. 2/n
Moreover, insensitive and sensational reportage serves to titillate and tease the erotic imagination of abuse, rape and violence. The focus shifts from the violation of the victim to the patriarchal fixation on women's bodies and their sexual freedom. 3/n

In May of 1997, @VP Mike Pence had a radio show where he suggested that adultery should be a crime in the US. Trump is accused of adultery & #SexualAssault while venal hypocrite Pence stands by. #StormyDaniels
Eric Greitens is a protégé of @VP Mike Pence. Before he was elected Missouri's governor, married Republican Eric Greitens raped a woman, struck her in the face & called her a "whore," the woman told a Missouri House committee.
Trump wants a dictatorship and Pence wants a Theocracy. They meet in the middle with #Putin. #ImpeachPence
