It's a man's, man's, man's world
Adapted from a @ScotsAHF thread
The response of @policescotland to Mr David Paisley feeling he "no longer felt safe" because "individuals" stated they knew where he lived and "made threats to [his] personal safety" is certainly very impressive. He was put on a ‘rapid response’ by police in case some ribbons floated towards his house.
Contrast their response to Marion Millar's complaint when her address was actually posted online (by an SNP "activist") and subsequent public violent threats made against her.
Did the police put Marion's house on "rapid response" when this happened to her, especially since she lives with her four kids who are under the age of 10, and doesn't have the option to stay somewhere else due to "safety concerns"?
While we’re at it, did they swoop on SNP activist Cal Dempsey when he posted Marion’s address online?
Surprisingly (or unsurprisingly depending on your view of the way the Scottish Police are currently acting) they did not. Not only did they not, but they still haven't taken action against Dempsey, despite being presented with irrefutable evidence.
It's almost as if there's a double standard operating in Scotland.
One rule for actors who consistently make defamatory statements against feminist and LGB groups, and campaign against gay men's magazines because they encourage open, respectful dialogue…
…and another rule for mums, looking after disabled kids while holding down full-time jobs, speaking out against the removal of Women's Rights, and policies which will allow predators to co-opt trans rights for their own purposes.
So, when you see the hashtag #WomenWontWheesht, be under no illusion that the women who won't wheesht are speaking out at considerable personal cost (both emotionally & financially) to themselves & their families. David Paisley’s terror of ribbons and feminists looks particularly pathetic next to that.
