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.

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.

Another fantastic article by @Docstockktheconversation.com/why-self-ident…
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.

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.

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.

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.

Brought to my attention by @FearMyHat , LabourLGBT have made it clear that they are advancing a men's rights agenda against women and transsexuals. lgbtlabour.org.uk/trans_allies_n…
LabourLGBT complain that 'The Equalities Act only provides anti-discrimination and harassment protection to those who intend, have or are transitioning. Not everyone wants to transition, and there is a range of non-binary identities that are not covered by the Act'.

‘Expulsion is the most severe sanction, reserved for leaders who’ve been convicted of an offence or put children at risk of harm. I’ve done nothing of the sort. I suppose I have committed a thought crime though’. thetimes.co.uk/article/34139e…
Helen’s grievous crime? She won’t submit and has stood firm behind the idea that ‘girls have the right to exert their own boundaries, have some bodily privacy and not be kicked out for not conforming with gender stereotypes’. #girlguiding

Brilliant piece by Sabrinna Valisce who explores systemic societal gaslighting framing it within established Radical Feminist Theory and Praxis. aradfemtypes.wordpress.com/2018/04/07/sys…
The essay moves the abusive technique of gaslighting from the micro – interpersonal relationships and domestic violence – to the macro – the endemic abuse of women and global subjugation of women. #WarOnWomen

Brilliant short thread about when safeguarding procedures broke down in the 1990s at the Ashworth in an attempt to be progressive.
'There is culture of this nature not only on Lawrence Ward but in other parts of the Hospital. My impression is that the Patient Care Team would sooner wilt under the pressure of manipulative devious patients..

Have you noticed, across centuries, if women are even listened to we are then the ones asked to compromise? We are told to be nice, play nice, and ask nicely. We have now essentially been asked to compromise our definition of ourselves and our human rights to dignity & privacy ..
We have been asked to compromise our safety from abuse. We have been asked to compromise our perception and understanding of reality. We have been asked to compromise our analysis and description of our oppression - if sex doesn't matter, sexism cannot exist. We have been asked

Does it bother you that we have a strand of political activism which deems women talking and raising awareness about a government consultation on law change 'hate speech'? Here is the Lib Dem candidate saying women wishing to talk about their rights are hateful.
Inspired? Here is the Fair Play for Women website: fairplayforwomen.com

I couldn't resist this:
Justin argues that the clitoris is just a small penis and then in a different guide 'basically the same as a penis'. He is teaching this to young people. Also, the clitoris has about 8,000 nerve endings almost double that of the penis, so very different.

I’m always cheered by a good feminist critique of Judith Butler, this has not let me down. Martha Nussbaum's 'The Professor of Parody' is a short essay critiquing Butlerian 'feminism' and the narcissistic turn in the academy.

Has he been reading the BACP guide - only men care about their work?
In 2018 Dr Tigges claimed that his female colleagues are paid less because they don't work as hard.
In 2018 Dr Barker claimed in the BACP that if you care about your work you must have a male gender identity.

The Green party's Caroline Lucas has been added to TERF blocker because she has tentatively suggested that she may now, finally, listen to some women. Welcome Caroline! blocktogether.org/show-blocks/Ai…
Hi, welcome, @CarolineLucas , we have books, biscuits and a feminist understanding of sex-based oppression and gender as a social construct imposed on sexed bodies in order to oppress and exploit. Oddly, Lidl is also on the list but we don't get mates rates!
These comments were made on stage at Manchester Pride. They were directed at lesbians, are sexist and the violence is sexualised. Once again this ideology allows men to make and celebrate threats of violence against women. Male violence, so progressive, so woke.
Is this a bit like when racists say 'but I have black friends'? Mr Cooper believes he cannot be a sexist and lesphobic because his mother was female and he is friends with some women... #misogynist#WarOnWomen

There is a fantastic thread on MumsNet looking at the woo-woo contained in the BACP Gender, Sexual and Relationship Diversity guidance.
Here is the thread mumsnet.com/Talk/womens_ri…
The BACP is the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, it trains and accredits in the U.K. Its guidance defines women and men using sexist stereotypes and suggests that one can be trans-Northern.

What a modern catch 22. Male violence - don't fight back and you wanted it or are in some way responsible (words, speech, existence as a woman), do say you would defend yourself and you face civil prosecution under section 5 of the Public Order Act 1986 #IStandWithLindaBellos
Screen grab is the relevant section of POA1986, the defence is outlined as were the words reasonable? Most people would agree that if one said one would defend one's self from physical violence that is reasonable speech. This is a case of the civil courts being used to harass...

@DebbieHayton@vandrac@Docstockk@LisaLllittman There was a big thing in American Universities with McCarthy blacklists and purges, if not prosecution. Also, the Khmer Rouge; Iran before and after the revolution. Throughout history regimes go after academics first and do this primarily by recruiting students to their ideology.
@DebbieHayton@vandrac@Docstockk@LisaLllittman I have a long thread on this on my tl (pinned to the tops, starts 'seen a video which has upset me). During the English Reformation, particularly when Elizabeth had been in power for a couple of years, Catholics and those with Catholic sympathies were purged from the Universities
