Here we have a striking example of what is being termed the 'post-truth era'. A director of the Women's Equality Party believes that sex-stereotypes are innate and female homosexuality should include penis (pre-op). #sciencedenial #WarOnWomen #GetTheLOut
It appears that Ms Duffy is infact celebrating that some are calling lesbians bigots for not wanting to have sexual interaction with male genitalia. The notion that lesbians must accept hetrosexuality is homophobia.That is the 'Women's Equality Party' for you. #WarOnWomen
It seems that Ms Duffy justifies her stance that lesbians need to accept penis in their sexuality from ancient Maori sexual fluidity. I wonder, does Ms Duffy request gay men become 'sexually fluid' to include heterosexual sex with women as well? #WarOnWomen #GetTheLOut
No feminist has argued that it is breasts which make a women , or the reverse that the removal of breasts or other body parts makes one less of a woman. Nevertheless, Ms Duffy makes that argument to claim a penis is female. It is astounding.
With regards to the 'Women's Equality Party', prior to the public homophobia of one of its directors, the name signalled a red flag for me. I don't want equality in a bad system, I want liberation. I don't want women to rape men at a rate of around 11 per hour, to murder men at
2 per week, to harrass and intimidate them, to view them as mere sexual objects for women's pleasure. Those are just a few examples, I don't want to be equally bad, I want to be liberated.
Returning to Ms Duffy, do her tweets reflect the thoughts of the party she is co-director of? If so, would that not suggest that they wish to remove the protected characteristics of sex, sexual orientation and belief from the Equality Act?
One @Indy_Sinead has rebuked Ms Duffy so well that I feel I should share it: 'Losing a breast/having a hysterectomy/suffering a miscarriage/infertility are all as much part of the experience of being biologically female as menstruation/birth/breastfeeding etc.'
If Ms Duffy and the party she co-directs (WEP) do not believe in the reality of biological sex, but rather think that our oppression is an innate all powerful girly essence, how do they propose to challenge sexism?

A detailed look at the U.K. Serious Case Review National Repository suggests to me that Susie Green of mermaids is making up statistics and in my opinion behaving unethically and in contradiction with the Samaritan guidelines around suicide.
This has come out of work @AlfredBelpaire has done and privately shared with me. The 'stats' Susie Green and another Mermaids mum are pushing, the sensationalist Guardian article do NOT agree with the research by GIDS of the Tavistock and Portman.
The GIDS evidence base is here: gids.nhs.uk/evidence-base

This is a fabulous thread and was a brilliant project by three academics. This is very important and concerns knowledge, truth and teaching.
Who sent me this thread? I want to thank you but I can't find the notification.
Sokal squared set about to expose the sophistry and forgery of knowledge in academia, particularly 'grievance studies', and it has been marvellous. I was even dealing with this just this morning (see screen grab).

This is in the comments section below. This Professor Emeritus of Applied Philosophy doesn't think that biological sex is real, that women are disadvantaged by systemic oppression based on biology. It is, frankly, batsh*t.
Prof.'s Stock rebuttal of five common arguments that men are women on their self declaration is beautiful. Proper reasoning and argument has returned to the room!

According to @StopFundingHate talking about women's rights= hateful, speaking about safeguarding= hateful, biology= hateful, speaking of sexism= hateful, women defining themselves= hateful, advertising government consultation= hateful.
I'm starting to suspect @StopFundingHate haven't done the reading.
Are they really going to start a campaign telling women to just be nice? @StopFundingHate

Jess is under the impression that women, and some men, meeting to discuss potential legislative changes is against UK law and council policies. Jess may have confused her anti-women feelings with actual legislation.
This is a personal favourite, Jess celebrating denying women their lawful rights by screaming 'mine' like a toddler. Thanks Jess, this really made me laugh.
There is a long heritage of women like Jess. Julia Bush has written a fantastic article on the women of the Anti-suffrage league bl.uk/votes-for-wome…

Thread. I am very worried that the Girl Guides is creating an institution and climate which is conducive to abuse.
Those who wish to access victims will exploit situations and put themselves in positions where they are surrounded by children. It is why paedophiles entered the Catholic Church, sports coaching, gymnastics coaching, children’s hospitals and homes.
One is not going to get much access to children while working on an oil rig.
