So instead of discussing her ideas he disagreed, his big trump card was to say she was unfuckable. Because that’s the only worth women have in some men’s eyes - how fuckable we are. #misogyny
From a group called Trad West. If you're just hanging out here on the Fediverse you may not know of these groups, but in MetaLand you get them pushed into your newsfeed every day.
Imagine a world where whole groups with content like this are not only allowed to exist, but are regularly BOOSTED to all the users with no affiliation, while the implication that "Men are gross" will get you instantly blocked. That's Meta. That's also why you don't federate with them.

Silicon Valley female officials face violence and family threats
"A woman who runs for office in today’s political climate can find herself navigating a minefield of hostile, threatening public behavior, and she will face higher levels of harassment and danger than her male counterparts...
In Santa Clara County, women serving in office are looking deep within and choosing whether to stay in politics or put the safety of their families first. The choice isn’t easy, as three local politicians—San Jose Councilmember Dev Davis and Santa Clara County Supervisors Cindy Chavez and Sylvia Arenas—have discovered.....
"District 6 San Jose Councilmember Dev Davis at her mayoral campaign launch party on Aug. 4, 2021. Davis, who is terming out, is stepping away from public service after threats to her and her family, including a bomb left outside her home."
Demonizing migrants is a central imperative of the political right globally. Suella Braverman is skilled at this. By pointing the finger at women and LGBTQ people who state that they are in danger and need to migrate to protect themselves and even save their lives, she elicits fear of hoardes of migrants overwhelming other countries, and implies that these migrants have slim reasons for migrating.
Suella Braverman reportedly believes that fearing persecution for being gay or a woman should not be enough to be granted asylum under international refugee laws

Woman in Struggle by Irene Ropa Rinopfuka Mahamba
First printing; published by ZIMFEP (Zimbabwe Foundation for Education with Production).
in So You Want To Talk About Race, Ijeoma Oulo proposes:
“#AffirmativeAction is a crucial tool if we want to mitigate some of the effects of systemic #racism and #misogyny in our society. It should not be rolled back; in fact, I argue that it should be expanded to other groups that suffer from systemic oppression as well. Why? Because it works. No, it doesn’t work wonders, but affirmative action can do some good for those who need it, and it can do some good for a society that wants to value #equality and #diversity.”

@GraniteGeek The music was tangential to my point, but every generation has a tendency to see their youth as ideal. However, I think the music of the 50-70s, at least portions, was more politically influenced. But it is hard to argue that that period was not transformative toward a broadening of the definition of human rights, remediation of a horribly checkered (putting it mildly) past of a nation founded on "All Men, etc". Even that phrase points to the "Paternal" bias/ #misogyny baked in.
‘There are dozens of Russell Brands’: female comedians say abuse is rife
Many women working in industry say allegations only scratch the surface of its culture of misogyny
“When I was 18 I had an incident with a powerful male comedian in his 30s,” says Lucy (name changed), a female comic in her early 30s. “It was really harrowing and triggering.
#Cast members #ShareenaClanton and #MeyneWyatt claimed that #racism and #homophobia were “#rampant” on set. In the same month, series regular #SharonJohal (#DipiRebecchi) spoke up about her own #negative #experiences while #filming.
Friendly reminder Incels are easily incited into bullying, terrorism, and fascist action.
Gamergate is what happened when the reactionary rejects of 4chan teamed up to be the personal army of an abuser and attack women who make and write about video games with a molecule-thin veneer of being a consumer movement for "free speech" and "ethics in video game journalism".
"there’s a collective tendency to assume that society gets progressively better, more equal; but every day brings another grim reminder that we’re living through an epidemic of misogyny. If it is hard for adults to process that reality, it is even worse for children. … exposure to sexist abuse is crippling girls’ self-esteem. But let’s not forget that boys are also navigating their way through this cesspit."
What a gross old man.

Mama must be so proud
Good piece by @zoesqwilliams looking at the culture #Brand is surrounded with, comparing 90s ladism with a mainstream violent #misogyny she says arrived towards the end of the naughties (around the same time as the proliferation of broadband and unregulated porn+SAM?) and remains today. Ends with a chilling line:
'For the first time, in surveys about social attitudes, the “youngest cohort surveyed have significantly more extreme misogynist attitudes than the oldest.”'

Russell Brand gains support from the internet's loudest weirdos
including women's rights activist Andrew Tate...
After four women made accusations of sexual assault against alleged comedian Russell Brand, several more women have come forward, and their claims are being “rigorously investigated”. This has prompted an outcry of support from the finest celebrities
The alt-right (short for alternative right) is a far-right movement that opposes tolerance, multiculturalism, and social justice (items they file under "Cultural Marxism" and "SJW").] Their racist ideology, including Social Darwinism, #eugenics, and #ecofascism, is rooted in the ideology of Progressive Era white supremacists (and birth control activists) Madison Grant and Lothrop Stoddard, who their hate-ridden websites frequently extol.
The movement is largely internet-based, made up of frustrated late-blooming teens-to-20-somethings, and is the merger of traditional white nationalists, neo-Nazis, right-libertarians, and neo-Confederates overlapping the neoreactionary movement, #Gamergate, and the #manosphere. The alt-right consensus of the day generally rests at the juncture of those three groups. The term originated with Richard Spencer's white nationalist magazine/blog Alternative Right, nicknamed "AltRight".
Maren Morris is getting the hell out of country music: ‘I’ve said everything I can say’
She says she’s leaving because of what she views as the country music industry’s unwillingness to honestly reckon with its history of #racism and #misogyny and to open its gates to more women and queer people and people of color.
Morris — a six-time winner at the Country Music Assn. Awards with four No. 1 hits on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart — describes her new release, "The Bridge" as a deliberate transition between her Nashville success and whatever comes next.
‘Woman Life Freedom,’ One Year Later
It has been a year since the women of Iran took to the streets to throw their headscarves into bonfires, while chanting, “Zan Zendegi Azadi” —“Woman Life Freedom.” Their fury was triggered by the killing of a young Kurdish-Iranian woman, Mahsa Jina Amini, who died in the custody of the Morality Police following her arrest for the crime of wearing a “bad hijab.”
"All for the Sin of Being A Woman"
Why is mum-shaming still a thing in 2023? Is it because society still won’t let women fully express themselves?
‘Bad mother’ behaviour seems to include anything that even hints at maternal ambivalence or a desire for more freedom
It’s hard enough being a working mother of young children, especially one in the process of getting divorced, without being smeared in the press as a bad mum.
“A young woman walks down a street in Tehran, her hair uncovered, her jeans ripped, a bit of midriff exposed to the hot Iranian sun. An unmarried couple walk hand in hand. A woman holds her head high when asked by Iran's once-feared morality police to put a hijab on, and tells them: ‘Screw you!’”

We need Canadians to understand white supremacy + political tactics used to persuade and manipulate the public.
I feel we have been so shielded. Twenty years ago, a friend of mine from South Africa asked me, "Why do Canadians take democracy for granted?" I didn't know what she meant. I couldn't fathom why it would ever be an issue. I didn't think it could happen us. But it's happening. We can't afford to be dismissive.

Stripping women of their rights leaves them vulnerable to abuse by men.

How far will the #GOP go in stripping women of their freedom?
"It was not clear if some of the proposed ordinance’s most ardent proponents in Llano understood what it would do, with several mischaracterizing the measure during interviews...
Pressed on the contradiction between his statement and the language of the proposal, Bishop acknowledged that what he originally said “may not be totally accurate.”
"While these restrictions appear to violate the US Constitution — which protects a person’s right to #travel — they are extremely difficult to challenge in court, said Mary Ziegler, a #law professor... who focuses on abortion. Because the laws can be enforced by any private citizen, #abortion rights groups have no clear #government official to sue in a case seeking to block the law."
"in 2019... the men set out to ban abortion city by city... The Texas ordinances relied on the novel enforcement mechanism that empowers private citizens to sue, creating the model for the statewide “heartbeat ban” that took effect exactly two years ago, on Sept. 1, 2021.
"These provisions have already passed in two counties and two cities, creating legal risk for those traveling on major highways including Interstate 20 and Route 84, which head toward #NewMexico, where #abortion remains #legal and new clinics have opened to accommodate #Texas women. Several more jurisdictions are expected to vote on the measure in the coming weeks."
"ordinances like the one proposed in #Llano... make it illegal to transport anyone to get an abortion on roads within the city or county limits...
Antiabortion advocates... are targeting regions along #interstates and in areas with #airports, with the goal of blocking off the main arteries out of #Texas and keeping pregnant #women hemmed within the confines of their antiabortion state."
Highways are the next antiabortion target. One Texas town is resisting:
A new ordinance, passed in several jurisdictions and under consideration elsewhere, aims to stop people from using local roads to drive someone out of state for an abortion.
What freedom will they take away next?
Saw a headline: “Woman slammed for flying with 18 pieces of luggage.”
It’s the woman, her husband, and infant twins, and the luggage includes strollers and carseats. They still packed suitcases beyond their allotment, but they were flying from Australia to the US and had a ton of stuff to take care of their kids.
She makes a powerful argument that the patriarchal power structures in our society are deeply entwined with our fossil-fuel based economy.

Noted moron #Rubiales claims he is being targeted by "false feminism." Okay let's take his version as accurate - according to him, in the hype of celebration he asked #Hermoso for a kiss. IDGAF if she said yes; the mere fact that he asked IS the problem. His infantile behavior trying to defend himself now is only further evidence the guy has to go. #WWC2023 #Spain #MastodonFC #FIFA #corruption #misogyny
"In a reactionary political movement desperately trying to reestablish the racial and sexual hierarchies of the past, pervasive fear of Black history is not hard to fathom. The more accurate the history that Americans learn, especially about the centuries-long Black struggle against violent White supremacy, the more morally and politically indefensible is the cry of Make America Great Again."

Trans #Sports Bans Have Reached Peak Stupidity
Now #chess, of all things, is banning trans women. Really! https://www.thenation.com/article/society/trans-chess-ban-explainer/ #transphobia #sexualharassment
one of those things about misogyny is: whether a man says "you'd make a good wife" or "no man would ever have you for a wife," it's an insult. remarkable!
(fun fact: half the time, these remarks come from women! like your mom, or an auntie. that's the power of patriarchy: it gets women to do the dirty work of keeping the next generation of girls in line)
(these kinds of statements are called "down girl" moves by kate manne in her book of the same name. they are meant to make clear the relation between the one saying it & the one it's directed at: "you are below me. i can say this to you and what are you gonna do about it?")
@w7voa Wow. Never really thought about Chess in terms of sexual equality. I came across this though, after seeing your post. https://new.uschess.org/womens Even though we think of the game as an elevated, cerebral activity, it still bumps up against #sexism & #misogyny.
I can see why women & girls might want to have their own spaces.
Even so, last place I'd anticipated trans debate raising its head.
Trans women have been barred from competing in chess tournaments
There are valid arguments for women's only chess leagues due to misogyny being a factor in gaming and sporting performance (although trans women also experience that)
Of course this isn't about fairness in sports it's about purging trans people
It also appears to imply that GCs believe men are innately superior to women at *chess*
