They fucking did it. They charged Marion.
One of the reasons Marion feels so strongly about this subject is that she has two autistic kids and she feels they’re particularly vulnerable to this ideology. If you look at her feed you get nothing except her defending women’s rights. (Quick reminder—please share our petition!)
So which tweet landed her in hot water? Was it her pinned tweet, where someone says “women won’t wheesht” to Nicola Sturgeon?
Was it because she had the temerity to tell the truth about Stonewall?
…or was it because she stood up for lesbians being coerced by straight men in dresses?
None of these. I’ve been reliably informed that the tweet for which she is being charged includes this one. It’s a Suffragette ribbon.
(UPDATE: I’ve removed a section here that made a guess as to the identity of the person who brought the case along with some other details. I’ll put them back when the case is no longer active.)
So there you have it.
Marion’s trial is in Glasgow on the 20th of July.
See you there.
Just in case you missed it, a tweet from DBanksy: "#MarionMillar has been charged, this means proceeding are ‘active’ and contempt laws apply to those publishing anything about her case, including tweets. Fair warning, the Scots courts are *much* more aggressive in enforcing contempt laws than those in England." So be careful what you tweet and thanks to everyone for bringing this to my attention.
If that's a noose, Eddie Izzard is a lesbian...
