Thread: Something that has become abundantly clear to me in the last few years of public feminist writing is that women carry around an endless library full of testimonies of the various things that have happened to us. #ChristineBlaseyFord is just one of these women. I say 'just', but of course I don't mean it in the reductive sense. I mean that hers is not an outlier testimony, one that should be scrutinised on the basis of exceptional probability. She is not the exception. She is the rule.

1. Some thoughts. It was not a lack of ‘situational awareness’ that ended the life of Eurydice Dixon - it was a person who made a conscious choice to exercise extreme violence against her. #eurydicedixon 2. I didn’t know Eurydice, but I have no doubt at all that she had ‘situational awareness’ and an awareness of her own personal security, because she was a woman who lived in the world and as such had been learning those infuriating lessons since she was a young child.
