@DawnHFoster ‘Instagrammable blue passports’ - this reminds me of all those photoshoots where David Cameron pretended to be a working class man of the people.

If this were better written, I’d suspect it of being a parody. As it is, it’s all the way through hilariously awful and out the other side into non-stop screaming. (Via @DawnHFoster)

I’m hooooooome and I got some excellent news which I totally can’t process because my brain is working at about a quarter of its usual speed but basically, hooray, and now I shall sleep.

Well, she could, but it would be all anyone ever talked about. That said, nobody can beat the Angela Merkel Colour Wheel for an up-yours approach to the feminine aesthetic in representative politics: (link:https://t.co/ktnQm2aYUe )https://t.co/fcFZ7bLCfG

If there really were ‘nothing there’, it would certainly be an original way to reopen Brexit negotiations. As it is nobody pays serious critical attention to fashion because it’s considered a women’s thing and therefore somehow stupid or vacuous. But May can’t just wear a suit.

> I actually find her dress sense the one piece of evidence that she CAN resolve fiendishly complex pointless problems that nonetheless matter a surprising amount to some people. A pity there’s no other evidence for it, honestly.

Stop waiting for the ‘real Nazis’ to show up. They’re here. White supremacy today doesn’t look like the organised party system of the 20th century, because it doesn’t need to. This is gig-economy fascism. Entrepreneurial white supremacy. Serving the interests of tyrants by proxy.

‘The new trophy wife in tech isn’t the hot young model. It’s the most brilliant, accomplished woman you can get to give up her career to have your kids.’ - a woman who works tech told me this two years ago and it still haunts me. #sexism

I was honoured to be invited by to speak as part of their prestigious convention -#openfuture but I cannot in good conscience appear at an event which chooses to dignify a neo-nationalist like Steve Bannon. Unless this decision is reversed, I will not be attending. https://t.co/8UcIpABcd4

Yes, the terms ‘TERF’ and ‘transphobe’ are insulting.
So are the words ‘racist’ and ‘sexist’.
They also descriptions of real behaviour that hurts real people.
If you feel bad because someone has identified your behaviour as harmful, that does not make you the victim.

‘Virtue signalling’ is a cowardly term used by people who secretly worry that their beliefs and actions are unethical and don’t want you to make them feel bad by behaving differently. Don’t fall for it. Nobody should feel ashamed of trying to do good in the world.

The idea of more and more women saying ‘fuck it’ and refusing to reshape themselves around what men want or are told to want *even if it means they end up single* is legitimately terrifying to patriarchy.
