Women are against the sexist slogans within the resistance:
Think twice about the tone of your resistance!
– While you say “son of a bitch” to Tayyip; think about the sex workers -and also all the woman, which are attacked with the very same word “bitch”- who are resisting shoulder to shoulder with you. How would you feel in their/our case?
– While you call the police, the government and Tayyip “faggots”, how you push LGBT resisters out of the squares.
– While you chant you are somebody’s “soldiers”, how you curdle the blood of an entire generation still living with the memories of a torturous military coup, of peace activists and conscientious objectors to mandatory military service.
As feminists, we are shouting at the top of our voices ; we raise our voice against sexism, police violence and government.
Resist persisting, not swearing!
