  • How to Raise a Feminist Son

    We’re now more likely to tell our daughters they can be anything they want to be — an astronaut and a mother, a tomboy and a girlie girl. But we don’t do the same for our sons. Even as we’ve given girls more choices for the roles they play, boys’ worlds are still confined, social scientists say. They’re discouraged from having interests that are considered feminine. They’re told to be tough at all costs, or else to tamp down their so-called boy energy. If we want to create an equitable society, one in which everyone can thrive, we need to...

    JACKSON, Miss. –  A Mississippi teenager charged with murder in the death of a 6-year-old told investigators that the boy was actually shot by another of the three teen suspects, according to an investigator's sworn statement. The Associated Press obtained the sworn statement Friday from a source with knowledge of the case involving the death of Kingston Frazier. The boy was found shot to death at the side of a dead-end road inside his mother's abandoned car, hours after someone stole the Toyota Camry from a supermarket parking lot.
  • 4 Year Old Uses Mom's Thumb To Unlock Her Phone And Call For Help

    03/22/2017 10:55:01 AM PDT · by bogusname · 14 replies
    A 4 year old boy, Roman, in Croydon, south London used his mom's thumb to call for help. He can be heard saying: 'Hello I'm Roman.' The call handler asks for his address - which he provides - and then asks him to go to his mother. He says: 'She's not waking up.' The woman on the phone then says to shake 'mummy' to wake her up, but Roman replies 'it's not working.' Paramedics were able to give life-saving first aid to the woman and she was taken to hospital after regaining consciousness at the home. She has since been...

    A New Jersey boy has become the first openly transgender member of the Boy Scouts. Just one week after the Boy Scouts of America changed its policy to allow transgender children to join, Joe Maldonado donned his uniform as the newest member of Pack 20 in Maplewood. 'I am accepted,' said the nine-year-old on Tuesday night, as his mother fought back tears. The youngster had previously been banned from Pack 87 in Secaucus because his birth certificate stated that he was born a girl.
  • Young Boy Brags of Setting Anti-Trump Fire: ‘Screw Our President’

    Legal Insurrection ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    It was a remarkable live TV moment. During Tucker Carlson's Fox News show, reporter Griff Jenkins was at the scene of an anti-Trump demonstration in DC where a fire had been set in the street. Suddenly, a young boy [maybe 10-11] stepped up to say that he “kind of started the fire.” When Jenkins asked why he started the fire, the boy, who identified himself as “Carter,” said “because I felt like it and I’m just sort of saying, screw the president.” View the video here.

    The Art of manliness ^ | 1933 (reprinted October 2, 2012) | Robert Littell
    Editor’s note: An AoM reader recently wrote me a letter recommending I look up this old essay, which originally appeared in Harper’s Magazine in March 1933. I did so, and was delighted by what I found. In the piece, Robert Littell takes on a classic genre: the listing of those skills every man should know. Naturally the fun of such lists is the passionate discussion that results from men adding their two cents as to what belongs and what doesn’t, and what should have been included instead, and I’m sure Littell’s list will have you both nodding and shaking your...

    After two juvenile boys held up three juvenile girls at gunpoint Sunday afternoon (June 12) in the 7th Ward, one made his getaway on a bicycle as the other took off running, New Orleans police say. A preliminary NOPD report says one of the suspects, a 14-year-old boy, was arrested shortly after the robbery. The holdup happened around 4:30 p.m. in the 1700 block of North Broad Street, police say. The report says two of the victims were age 12 and 13. The third victim's age was not listed, but police said she was also a juvenile. The report says...

    ALTUS, Okla. – A man who is a district chairman of a Boy Scouts troop in Oklahoma was arrested this week after he was allegedly caught with child pornography. Steven Foreman, 52, was arrested in Altus after investigators intercepted child pornography coming from a personal computer at Foreman’s home, officials say. Authorities reportedly found several images of child pornography on Foreman’s computers and hard drives. According to KSWO, Foreman is a retired United States Air Force member and is currently employed in a civilian position at the 97th Security Forces Squadron at Altus Air Force Base. He also holds the...

    Roseville, Ca. - For two years, 7-year-old Vinny Desautels grew out his hair to help kids with cancer. "I want to help people so they don't have to go to the doctors to fight cancer." Thirteen inches of hair was gone with the snip of some scissors. "And then everyone got excited when mom cut the ponytails off. I was happy," Vinny said. But life can sometimes take a cruel turn. "My eye was getting heavy." "It is Stage 4 aggressive cancer," said Jason. A little boy who gave selflessly to help those suffering with cancer is now battling the...

    Yesterday’s Boston Herald featured this endorsement in the New Hampshire GOP presidential primary. A former U.S. attorney for the District of New Jersey, [Chris] Christie knows something about being on the front lines of the ongoing war on terror. (SNIP) Not mean-spirited? Not hateful? Tell that to the young woman Christie sandblasted in a New Hampshire town hall meeting Monday night when she asked why he hadn’t stayed in his home state a little longer to help the recovery effort from last weekend’s monster snowstorm.
  • Kentucky Kindergartner Killed in His Sleep

    VERSAILLES, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police have arrested and charged a man with murder after authorities say he stabbed a young boy to death during a home invasion in Versailles, near Lexington. I'm hoping some Freepers can help me understand what's going on here. This story makes no sense and none of the media want to dig for answers. Nothing in this story makes any sense at all unless you consider two scenarios: 1. The attacker is a total loon, but that still doesn't address how he ended up in Kentucky when he lives in Indiana. 2. The only other thing...

    A 12-year-old boy is suspended from school for 'staring' at another student. It happened in September of 2014 at St. Gabriel Consolidated School in Glendale. The parents filed suit in Hamilton County Common Pleas court to try and get the suspension erased claiming the school didn’t give their son due process. A Judge denied the claim, which means as of now the suspension of the 12-year-old stands. “The perception is he intimidated her,” said Candice Tolbert, his mother. “My son stared at a girl who was engaged in a staring game,” she said. “She giggled the entire time,” she said...

    My niece had a baby 2 weeks ago, Ezra, strapping little boy. Six days ago he stopped eating. Four days ago he had surgery to repair what was thought to be a bad Pyloric valve in his stomach. Surgery went 'well' but it did not solve the problem, still will not keep anything down. Today they are doing ultrasound, again. Little guy is now 1.5 pounds below his birth weight and still not keeping any food down. Doctors say not to panic, yet. Mom and dad are beside themselves already, and the little one is hooked up to machines, scary....

    His bad reputation is bigger than he is. A 10-year-old Brooklynite accused of mugging a 67-year-old grandma and torching a local business is “a one-kid crime wave . . . a very troubled young individual,” Police Commissioner Bill Bratton said of the alleged prepubescent pyromaniac said Thursday. The pint-sized perp, who’s yet to hit 5 feet tall, arrived Thursday for a Family Court hearing with his mother — who attacked a photographer, swinging her purse at him, as they left for home. “My son is awesome. He’s a good kid,” the mother snapped before heading off. “You paint him like...
