🌈 my latest for @blackyouthproject is live and linked in my bio. I draw on my and other Black women’s experiences who have been touched without consent by white women and how feminist movements have to address the racial subtleties that directly affect Black women for these conversations to be truly feminist.  #timesup #blackwomen #rachaelthelord #blackgirls #blackfeminism #blackfeminist #consent #bodilyintegrity #agency #blackwriters #swipeleft #feminist #fuckthepatriarchy #patriarchy #whitewomen

The incident of a hugging/kissing couple getting beaten up in the Calcutta Metro Railways by a bunch of middle and old aged men doesn’t only leave me astonished and angry but makes me furious. 
It makes me think over and over again when I portrayed my city ‘Calcutta’ to the world as ‘the most liberal part of India’. Calcutta’s history of liberal women/men and protests is not new to anyone, starting from the britishers who ruled us to the left government and current one everybody has seen it.
But we must not try to hide our double standards and classism in the glory of the past and Rabindranath’s legacy. We have seen the greatest tragedy of the Bengal famine in 1943 and risen up from there where nobody had anything home. This is just another phase with a bunch of scumbags, fascists trying to impose their beliefs on us.
It’s about time we break the shackles and tell the world we stand for what our values are and elevate our minds.

As they all say “A healthy mind does not speak for ill of others.” A rally was organized outside Tollygunge Metro station on 2nd May as a protest against an alleged moral policing incident inside a train compartment in Calcutta.

Autonomy of Thought
My thoughts will be my thoughts. Not the opinion of others. And not the thoughts people wanted me to have. My own thoughts. That which has been said to me, is not a thought that I need to own. 
Autonomy of Body
This body is my body. The only person that gets to decide what I do with it is me. I can't always control what happens to my body, and at some point I'll make peace with that, but it belongs solely to me.

Veto à Lei da Identidade de Género

Pelo comunicado do Presidente da República, entendemos que é favorável à autodeterminação das pessoas trans a partir dos 18 anos, sem a necessidade de um relatório médico. Do mesmo modo, o Presidente da República mostra-se favorável à necessidade de proteção das características sexuais de bebés e crianças intersexo. O problema reporta-se  à situação de pessoas trans menores dos 18 anos. Para esses casos o Presidente considera que deve haver esse relatório. 
A ILGA Portugal, aliando a sua voz às mais altas recomendações internacionais em matéria de Direitos Humanos, reforça que a autodeterminação deve ser garantida também para menores.

Importa separar a esfera clínica da legal em todos os casos e esses testemunhos e mensagens foram passados nas várias audições na Assembleia da República e com o Presidente da República, nas quais participaram pessoas trans, mães e pais de jovens trans, ativistas e especialistas nesta matéria, todas e todos a favor da autodeterminação em qualquer dos casos.

A Assembleia da República tem poderes para ultrapassar este veto e se há de facto um caminho aberto pelo próprio Presidente da República para a autodeterminação das pessoas trans, então há que avançar por esse caminho para a garantia plena dos Direitos Humanos de todas estas pessoas.

It’s so #uplifting to stand beside such courageous ground-breakers in the ongoing struggle for #HumanRights and #BodilyIntegrity, at the 15th #International #Symposium on #GenitalAutonomy and #ChildrensRights. Parents love their children, which is why we must #expose the #truth behind #GenitalCutting. When parents understand the reality about what is being done to their #babies, #circumcision becomes an “#OverMyDeadBody” issue. #Peace begins with how we treat our #children... 💪🏽

While specific abortion laws vary by state, throughout the country you have the right to an abortion at least until the third trimester of pregnancy. Also, the government may not create significant obstacles in obtaining an abortion during the early pregnancy. Many states attempt to pass laws that make it harder or practically impossible to obtain an abortion, and courts often strike these down as unconstitutional. See more at our Guide to Reproductive Rights.

📆 Another date for your diaries ❤️ Amnesty Women and Non-Binary @amnestyuk are putting on a #pubquiz #fundraiser for the #repealthe8th campaign. ••• Since 1983 the #8thamendment of the #Irish constitution has given unborn foetuses and women equal rights: more or less banning #abortion entirely. This leaves people who require abortions forced to flee to the UK (expensive and traumatic) or take illegal abortion pills sourced online. The amendment is a travesty; violating #womensrights to #bodilyintegrity and #selfdetermination and we must do all we can to ensure it’s repealed.•••

Approaching 30, I've never loved, or been more proud of my body. Growing & birthing 3 babies is an amazing feat. 17yo me feared 'ruining' my body > stretching to grow a baby. Instead, I really should have been preparing to advocate for myself during my birth because no one else was going to, and the trauma of coercive protocol remains. Prepare for your birth because there are no do-overs, and your experience will stay with you for life.

The most important lessons we can teach our kids: bodily integrity & consent. So many conversations mid-play with my kids “are you listening to her?” “It’s her body, she decides” “he’s telling you to stop!” Affirming that their hair is their own: I have my bias for and against styles & colours but if I control what they do with their hair I’m setting them up to feel it normal for someone else to call the shots with their bodies. Piercings. Clothing. Even hair brushing is negotiated...my desire for tidy hair does not trump their right to say “stop!”. #feministparenting #consent #no #bodilyintegrity #rapeculture #feminism

There's too much systematic abuse.  Women deserve humanised experiences. To be respected & have access to supportive, SAFE (physical AND emotional) care in which her right to informed decision making is PROTECTED & SUPPORTED. Yes, even if it's not the choice the provider would make for themselves. Yes, even if the policy or guidelines steer providers in another direction. Policy is not the law for women - they CAN refuse. Should women refuse just because they can, probably not. Access to safe, truly women centered care should be a priority. Where the woman decides what is best for her body and baby, supported by a provider who prioritises information sharing & women making individualised decisions that they deem as personally safe. 'Safe' looks different to different people & this should be remembered.

In July 2016, #FearlesslyFRIDA embarked on its second chapter of exploring coloring outside the lines of the body. This journey began in South Africa with Fearless Collective collaborating with two local organizations, @1in9_campaign, formed as a response to the Zuma trial, and @insta_holaa Both organizations work to document and showcase the lives of women and their stories, supporting women through the process of reporting sexual crimes and moving through justice systems. Through intimate workshops and rituals, together they explored dual ideas of “pure” and “impure” unpacking what it means when it is sued in the context of a body, especially a woman's body. Seen in the images are also people from the FRIDA team--staff member @boikanyo__ and former staff member Jessica, participating in the workshop. Unfortunately, in October same year, Khwezi , whose struggle was a major inspiration behind the mural, passed away on October 8, 2016. Before her passing, Fezeka had been a symbol to all women fighting for justice of sexual assault victims as is evident with the rallying call ‘My Kanga is not an invitation’ which formed a core part of this project. The mural stands strong in Johannesburg reminding us to not feel shameful about what we wear, how we look and the body we own. "I wear my body without shame." To read the detailed story of this chapter, head to: www.youngfeministfund.org/fearlessly-frida Special thanks to the lensman @fabricebourgelle 
The right to reclaim the night and not be ashamed of our bodies is ours alone. Fearless Collective Residency seeks to build more fearless spaces in South Asia. Support the right to be fearless. Anywhere. Anytime. Make a contribution by clicking on the link of this bio 👉

Failing to educate young people about sex, sexual consent and healthy relationships means that those who experience such crimes at a young age are often left bewildered, afraid, ashamed and unsure of where or how to report what has happened. To reject it is quite simply to fail young people.

It fails the children who might be in danger of sexual abuse, and who may be too afraid and ashamed to tell anyone about it.

It fails the young people who are never taught about healthy vs unhealthy relationships at school at all.

It fails the one in three girls who experience unwanted sexual touching (a form of sexual assault) in schools.

It fails the female rape victims aged under 16, who might never be told that what happened to them wasn’t acceptable, and that they have the right to report it.

But, most of all, it fails every child who has a human right to learn about sex, sexual consent and their rights to their own body. What lesson could possibly be more important than that?

Iceland is such a beautiful country. Here's a picture from my trip there in 2014.

Wishing them all the best as they attempt to become the first country to explicitly ban violation of the most fundamental human rights: bodily autonomy and genital integrity through the abhorrent practise of genital mutilation.

Icelandic parliament is currently debating six year imprisonment for anyone carrying out non-medically necessary circumcision. I give them my full support and wish every country on Earth would do this. Circumcision is a barbaric and ruthless practise. It is NOT a religious freedom to remove body parts off unconsenting infants or children in ritual abuse ceremonies or mis/uninformed medical amputations.

A lot of the time, parents will circumcise their sons because they fear that their baby will grow up and recieve ridicule from peers for being uncircumcised. We must destigmatize being uncircumcised. Their bodies are whole and natural. Your babies' penises are not born with birth defects.

Neonatal circumcision is a violation of a baby's bodily integrity. It is a violation of four core human rights documents—the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the Convention on the Rights of the Child, the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, and the Convention Against Torture.

"Circumcision is barbaric and stupid. Who are you to correct nature? Is it real that GOD requires a donation of foreskin? Babies are perfect." "I will always stand for the perfection of babies, I will always believe in God, not man's interpretation of what God requires." "Last of it, if you feel it is your right to cut things off your babies please unfollow and f**k off, I'll take attentive parenting over barbarism." ~ Russell Crowe

"I think male circumcision is worse than an incision of the girl. With boys, a lot of skin is removed ... depending on how that is done in Third World countries, for instance, where there's poor hygiene ... and where the people who carry it out don't possess the necessary skills ... the consequences can be worse for boys than for girls. With girls, a sharp object is pricked into the clitoris. It bleeds a little. And the whole family is satisfied and she is declared 'pure'. Strictly speaking, that procedure is less dramatic than male circumcision." ~ Ayaan Hirsi Ali

Amartya Sen developed the concept of human "capabilities" as a person's opportunity and ability to generate valuable outcomes, taking into account relevant personal characteristics and external factors. Building on Sen's work, Martha Nussbaum outlined ten central capabilities that must be met to at least a threshold level in any decent society, and should be supported by all democracies. These ten capabilities are also vital for individual mental wellbeing.

3. Bodily Integrity - Being able to move freely from place to place; to be secure against violent assault, including sexual assault and domestic violence; having opportunities for sexual satisfaction and for choice in matters of reproduction.

Who is for gender equality? 😏 
If we can’t get behind the ethical and moral argument of keeping boys intact, we need to think of it in terms of sex.  When reason and logic fail us, we should think with our genitals! 😜
Circumcision severs approximately 20,000 nerve endings.  Can you imagine how incredible sex is going to be for your son (and his wife) if you leave his dick alone? 
We don’t cut our daughter’s foreskin because that would be considered mutilation.  And yes, women have a foreskin!  If you didn’t know that little fact, you lack basic knowledge of human anatomy and should really get up to speed before taking a knife to your son’s genitals.  The male foreskin serves 16+ functions—it’s there for a reason!  If you already cut your son and didn’t know this information, well, sucks for him.  Poor little dude. Don’t you wish you had some annoying outspoken friend to share this with you before you dumb-assed out?  Don’t beat yourself up.  I’m sure if you apologize for cutting 20% of his dick off he’ll forgive you. 🙄 
Keeping boys intact is becoming the new trend.  If you are someone who decides to cut off body parts based what society does, you might want to consider that rates of circumcision are on the decline.  I mean, it’s just an IDEA.  You don’t have to do it just because everyone else is doing it. 😆 
Keeping boys intact is the norm worldwide.  But here in ‘Merica, we like to do stuff backwards!  We think we are smarter than everyone when really, we are just too dumb to question this barbaric practice not realizing that is recommended simply as a matter of profits for the medical-industrial complex.  The American Academy of Pediatrics doesn’t even recommend routine universal circumcision.  It’s being done as a matter of money (and herd behavior). Couple hundred million in hospital stays, doctor compensation of another couple hundred million, and the kicker?  The $1-$2 billion raked in annually from baby-penis-derived products.  Yes, that’s a real thing.  Gross, eh? 
Stop the gender bias.  Men matter. Get informed.

It's 7am. I'm grumpily drinking coffee & getting ready for #Pride. Rho is doing the Macarena & getting pumped for #outrun. We are so different. This year I'm wearing a @interact_adv shirt as an ally because intersex rights have a place in pride. Bodily autonomy, bodily integrity & self-determination are fights for us all. There's no pride in a parade that's not a protest. We have so much work still to do. Side note if anyone wants to say hi I'll be with @leapsportsscotland at the run and on the pride march where we can shout about intersex inclusion in sport or 'Hands off Caster' or 'IAAF can eff off' or something #glasgow #glasgowpride #prideglasgow #prideisaprotest #intersexrights #stopigm #bodilyautonomy #bodilyintegrity #selfdetermination #macarena #outrun #leapsports

I find it so frustrating that we are encouraged to dress children like pint-sized adults, and with no consideration for comfort or how easy it is to move in the clothes! Enough with the stiff shirts and thick, baggy denim jeans already! Enough with only blues & greens for boys, and a range of pastels for girls! And if you choose soft, colourful, scandi-type outfits, you often pay through the nose - even second hand. Luckily, we managed to find a whole host of brightly coloured vests on eBay. #sweatyhairdontcare due to all the climbing & crawling👌🌈🍄 #kiddiefashion #playclothes #twinstyle #genderneutralclothing | ⭐️ Like this?

This is what we are up against. If this is loving parenting, I want none of it. 1. It’s not a job, it’s a privilege and an honour. 2. Kids aren’t half-formed, adults-in-waiting, they’re people living life right now. I’m not training them to become adults, I’m guiding them as they discover who they are and who they want to be. 3. I can NEVER condone shaming any child, not least my own. I, the person who is supposed to love and protect them more than anyone else in the world. That is a sacred trust. 4. We don’t need tools and tricks and techniques to manipulate desired behaviours. If we just relate to children with respect and empathy, we find that children are humans too, who can be trusted to decide the right course of action for themselves. 5. If that’s education, I want none of it. (It is, and I don’t!). 6. Just because shaming children is socially acceptable, doesn’t mean it should be or that we should perpetuate it. 7. Empathy means putting yourself in someone else’s shoes, trying to feel what they feel with a view to preventing pain. Pretty much the antithesis of shaming somebody. 8. Is the use of emotional abuse ever ‘appropriate? (Spoiler alert: not on your Nellie). The worst part? This was a member of a Feminist Parenting group. I had assumed that a fellow feminist parent would understand the damage that shame & oppression causes. This is exactly why we need to spread the word and challenge such harmful parenting ‘norms’. It’s just not okay. @racheous @lulasticblog @sara_happiness.is.here

I like to dress my kids in cute, coordinated clothing - but would it rankle me if they wouldn’t wear the clothes I chose for them? Or messed up the lovingly designed colour code that helps people tell my identical twins apart? Would I treat them as disobedient if they flat-out refused to ‘cooperate’ when I was dressing them?

At first glance this seems like pretty normal parenting. But viewed through the lense of childism, I was forced to admit that yes, I was assuming that it was a parental right to have control over how my child dressed. Never mind my child’s right to autonomy & self-expression. Essentially, I was viewing children as dolls to be dressed-up.  Now obviously I need to provide appropriate clothes for the season, and keep them laundered. But once they are toddlers there’s no reason they can’t choose the day’s clothing themselves. Come to that, when they are old enough to understand, there’s every reason to involve them in the clothes shopping - an excellent opportunity to teach them about planning and budgeting for your wardrobe...

There’s been a huge furore over Racheous’ article on body autonomy. Reading some of the more abusive comments, it’s clear that the issue parents were most struggling to accept was that she lets her kids decide how they want their hair cut - even if that means shaved down to a fuzz!

But I still have to admit that I’d struggle if my children refused to brush their hair, for example. I’d harp on about hygiene concerns, but that wouldn’t be the root issue. 
It’s much more truthful to say that I’d be concerned what other parents would think of me. And eventually I would have to face it: if I want to be a respectful parent, then I don’t get a say in how they wear their hair! My children are autonomous people who need to develop intrinsic motivation when it comes to hygiene and appearance, not pets to be groomed as I see fit. Now obviously I need to ensure their hair is clean within reason, and not infested with headlice for example, but there are respectful ways of handling this. Certain boundaries might need to be mutually agreed-upon. Other than that, it’s not my choice!

But I still have to admit that I’d struggle if my children refused to brush their hair, for example. I’d harp on about hygiene concerns, but that wouldn’t be the root issue. It’s much more truthful to say that I’d be concerned what other parents would think of me. And eventually I would have to face it: if I want to be a respectful parent, then I don’t get a say in how they wear their hair! My children are autonomous people who need to develop intrinsic motivation when it comes to hygiene and appearance, not pets to be groomed as I see fit. Now obviously I need to ensure their hair is clean within reason, and not infested with headlice for example, but there are respectful ways of handling this. Certain boundaries might need to be mutually agreed-upon. Other than that, it’s not my choice!

I had a rather, um, heated conversation about religion last night, and whether or not it is okay to baptize terminal children without the parent's consent or knowledge, or even adults, in Catholic hopsitals. This was my total at lunch today, and I could not help but chuckle. #autonomy #bodilyintegrity #imonthehighwaytohell #666 #heateddiscussions #burnbabyburn #mybodymychoice #itsahumanrightsthing

The bill would allow doctors to NOT inform patients about fetal abnormalities without legal repercussions. Regardless of your ideology, this should not be acceptable. We should be able to trust our doctors, and they should face repercussions if they decide to leave out information of this proportion. #pp #prochoice #plannedparenthood #equality #egalitarianism #equalrights #egalitarian #feminism #feminist #democrat #lgbt #liberal #leftist #liberalism #loveislove #greenparty #woke #womanist #womensmarch #womensrights #atheism #bodilyautonomy #bodilyintegrity #blacklivesmatter

I thought I had a pretty good understanding of how society provides the breeding ground for institutional racism. And then I took a sociology course! I recommend taking one so much. It's a hard course with lots of information to memorize, but it has literally changed how I look at life. I also recommend the book "the new Jim Crow" because that is much cheaper than a class! #prochoice #lgbt #blacklivesmatter #endracism #liberal #democrat #greenparty #feminist #feminism #womanist #woke #equality #equalrights #egalitarian #womensrights #bodilyintegrity #loveislove #gayisokay #atheism
