This kind of "backlash" always comes from a tiny number of fanatics who have organised to be able to make a lot of noise. The correct approach to them is that you should NEVER back down. Hold your ground, tell them to get lost, and hit back hard by denouncing their fanatism. https://t.co/9wAKB81noA

Underrated part of this is Elon claiming that in fact all of the diving was unnecessary and the boys could have casually swum out the same way they got in pic.twitter.com/HLbvD9NtHd

"At age 71, Nussbaum runs daily, including 12 miles every Sunday, and regularly lifts weights. Disdaining earphones and popular music, she silently sings the full libretto of The Marriage of Figaro as she works out."

توقف عن وصف الأشرار والمجرمين أو حتى من يخالفك في بعض التوجهات بالمضطرب نفسيا. أنت بذلك تساهم في تعزيز الصورة النمطية عن المرضى النفسيين بأنهم سيئون أخلاقيا ومصدر خطر. تعزيز هذه الصورة يساهم في عزلهم اجتماعيا ما يجعل حالاتهم تزداد تعقيدا.

Next time you are tempted to opine "Maybe women are just less interested in pursuing scientific careers," please consider an alternative hypothesis:
"Maybe women are just less interested in working in fields where they will be harassed, objectified, & assumed to be less capable."

“To grasp what is going on in the world right now, we need to reflect on two things. One is that we are in a phase of trial runs. The other is that what is being trialled is fascism (...). Forget “post-fascist” – what we are living with is pre-fascism.” https://t.co/YZRERW07nE

It is intellectually dishonest--and false--to say that disproportionate rates of Black crime & violence are rooted in poverty and political marginalization, and then say that disproportionate rates of BM violence are rooted in cultural deficit, hypermasculinity & patriarchy..

1/ The Vice-Chancellor of my workplace, Sussex University, has issued a nuanced & sensitive public statement, both in support of my academic freedom and of the rights of trans people, which I also vocally affirm. I'm very glad to see it https://t.co/SgoB3O8lBS

The pain of rape survivors, past and present, of girls & women subject to sexual crimes and constant male sexual attention, provides decisive reason to protect female-only spaces and boundaries, and to find other ways to protect trans people from harm than place onus on women. https://t.co/3pkMM2okPq

todo lo de hacerle pagar a las familias los "gastos de la búsqueda" cuando aparecen las chicas vivas me parece de un nivel de marginalidad mental increíble (además de misógino, claro). al borde de la psicosis eh

As scholars, we have no problem with empiricism when it verifies racism, sexism, or the like. But when Black males assert that empiricism should then be used to verify their alleged pathology & deviance we immediately appeal to the Black female experience & moral rightness. Why?

Black knowledge has so much farther to go. We should welcome debate not demonize dissent.
