For those who follow me for the “coarse language.” This episode of show was censored because I asked “How many rapists must we kill before men stop raping us” AND because I said “fuck” 10 times or so. Fuck civility.

We need to stop moralising or regulating women's bodies & choices and excluding them in these meetings .... its about time we have a more robust summit that is not ageist homophobic transphobic ableist stigmatising to other women on based on their sexual choices
