    This man harasses and yet hailed by Tanqeed. Awaiting your expose on misogyny in the left specifically on how easily ASA gets away with it. AWP has no sexual harassment policy for a reason it seems. Free for all.

      Dear cantsay,

      TQ is a mixture of people from various Left political persuasions, not belonging to any one party. We welcome articles discussing sexism and harassment within the Left. We would love pitches for analytical, reported or personal pieces on the subject. Please email us at editors@tanqeed.org. Our pitch guidelines are here: http://www.tanqeed.org/submissions/#sthash.rT8EAYWC.dpbs. In a specific situation where harrassment is alleged, we are in solidarity with survivors and victims and — should they choose to tell their stories — we are open for publication. However, we do not think it is our place to urge survivors or victims to come forward. That decision rests firmly with them.

      Sincerely
      TQ Editors-in-Chief

    Come on Tanqeed. You can report on how awful liberal feminists are but can’t speak up about this man’s harassment? Call your friends at AWP to find out the details. They’re covering up for him but the truth always comes out.

    Keep covering up Tanqeed. Bravo! Not silent when it comes to secular people but dead silent about what ASA does. You guys are a cult.
