Am I allowed on here with my kids both grown up? 🤔
I just wanted to say omg thank you thank you thank you SO MUCH for your support for the crowdfunder to keep Labour all-women shortlists just for... err... women. £22,000 now and my sisters here booted it into the mainstream.
Anyway will check back in case anyone has questions.
You Are Mighty
Jen 😘😘😘

I dont even have kids, it is not compulsory.

I'm awake because the heating came on early and woke me up.

I'm still barred from donating, spoke to you on twitter during the 'refunding' season.

JenniferJames Wed 07-Feb-18 06:10:30

I'm awake cos my boyfriend has a cough... he can sleep thro his cough but I Cannot!

TellsEveryoneRealFacts Wed 07-Feb-18 06:10:33

I have to say, you are spectacularly awesome.

ShackUp Wed 07-Feb-18 06:11:18

I'm up early because I'm a teacher with young kids who needs to be in work at 7.30! I've always voted Labour for obvious reasons but i can't vote for them since the AWS stuff.

JenniferJames Wed 07-Feb-18 06:11:55

I remember.. 'almighty god' was it? don't worry there's plenty in the pot x

mamaryllis Wed 07-Feb-18 06:13:01

Been there done that... it was a killer! Had to quit teaching in the end I didn't have the stamina :-:

Cooroo Wed 07-Feb-18 06:14:58

Another early rising donor here. I can't even believe this battle is necessary! Thanks.

athingthateveryoneneeds Wed 07-Feb-18 06:15:30

Good morning. I wish I was asleep, but alas, I have an early rising baby.

I continue to be impressed with the women who have donated, who are working against this insanity and bravely facing up to it across the internet and in real life.

JenniferJames Wed 07-Feb-18 06:16:37

Hey hon! Well there's nothing doing with it... I've known ppl be suspended for years with no actual hearing. Yes, I think my arguments are watertight... but the zeitgeist may be against us. We'll see...

JenniferJames Wed 07-Feb-18 06:20:42

I love babies! Mine are way too big mow and I miss my little ppl. It has amazed us all. I didnt expect the cf to get more than £100 but it just tapped into all our anger about being redefined by men. Who, lets face it, have taken the piss too much and for too long.

Hello Jennifer,

a massive thank-you for the crowdfunder and for your work- the first chance people had to really show, publically how unhappy they were with self-ID.

I'm up and working (but now mnetting for a quick break) because I do the paid work of three people (cuts, cuts, cuts) in a field I'm 'lucky' to have a job in and I'm a single-parent with no financial support. Clinging on by the fingernails....

JenniferJames Wed 07-Feb-18 06:22:52

Wow Canada! The womenz are holding hands across oceans. Xx

JenniferJames Wed 07-Feb-18 06:24:22

Thank uou chicken! This is a lot less scary than twitter xxx
