    Two brothers from Boston, Lincolnshire, built an incredible, full-scale Second World War trench and bunker in their back garden during lockdown. Alfie Oglesbee, nine, and his big brother Jacob, 11, decided to construct their amazing creation just in time for the 75th anniversary of VE Day. The pair both love learning about the Second World War so they decided to find out all they could about the life of the soldiers and recreate it.

    An Idaho state legislator plans to introduce a bill that would require biologically male athletes to compete on boys sports teams, regardless of whether they identify as a transgender girl or not. Idaho state Rep. Barbara Ehardt is the latest Republican lawmaker across the country to introduce legislation ensuring girls aren’t forced to compete against biologically male athletes. The wave of proposed legislation comes as biological males have piled up victories in female athletics. “Boys and men will not be able to take the place of girls and women in sports because it’s not fair. We cannot physically compete against...

    It isn't just the Second Amendment under assault in blue America; the crazed anti-gun nuts want to take away your Nerf guns too! Leave it to New York to start this idiotic idea. The Empire State Consumer Project is part of a nationwide group that lobbies lawmakers for consumer safety, research, and education. The NY faction has decided that this year, the biggest threat to consumers is "assault-style" Nerf guns that shoot foam darts and contribute to much family fun (in my house anyway)....

    This is a story about successful kids (especially boys), common sense, and research. Most of us spend hours each day sitting at work. Science says it's killing us, and we have developed all kinds of fads to combat it—from standing desks to smartphone alerts to get us up and moving. Armed with that knowledge, however, what do we force our kids to do each day at school? Sit still, for six or eight hours. Now researchers say that mistake leads us into a three-pronged, perfect storm of problems: 1. We overprotect kids, trying to keep them safe from all physical...

    After ISIS stunt and a lot of earlier bad reporting, why should we believe anything the Washington Post writes? ( Full title). ... After years of lying to the public why does any newspaper or other media outlet trust and reprint anything that comes from people working for the Washington Post? The Washington Post, in collusion with other Democrats and media outlets pushed the hoax (fraud) on the public that Russia colluded with DonaldTrump in the 2016 election to steal the election from Hillary Clinton, ultimately with absolutely no evidence. The WP was a leader in pushing the charges against...

    Come on boys, vogue! The youngest generation’s greater willingness to embrace nontraditional gender norms has opened up a new market within the beauty industry: men’s makeup. One-third of young men said they would consider wearing makeup, according to Morning Consult polling, while 23 percent of all men said the same. Founders of men’s cosmetic brands credit the increased interest among young men not only to a wider acceptance of the idea that gender is fluid but also to the pressure to be picture perfect at any moment, thanks to social media. “The stigma associated with buying and purchasing this product...

    I'm looking to find a syllabus that I could use to do Sunday School via teleconference with my grandson(s). File under: 21st Century Headlines. I have 2 grandsons, the older one is almost 7, so I'd be starting with him. The little one is only 2, so maybe just get him to do an art project or something for now. I'd be willing to spend some money to get a quality product I googled this and there were SO MANY ads that came up! Of course that made me happy, but I feel a little overwhelmed. So I figured I'd...

    Recent shootings serve to highlight how we live in times that are violent and lonely. Young shooters are breaking the precarious rhythms of our daily lives with tragedy. We know little about them. However, one thing they all have in common is loneliness. The Loner as Ideal Revolutionary In times past, subversives would seek strength in organization and numbers. They would conspire with others to carry out their nefarious deeds. Intelligence services could trace links and patterns to uncover vast conspiracies. The loner finds his strength in loneliness. He does not need or seek others. There is no organization or...

    COLUMBUS, Ohio - They were bound to get noticed, and that was likely the point.

Pictures and video of that event quickly spread on social media. Advertisement - Story continues below One of the people who posted about it was State Rep.

    LONDON (AP) — Hapless husbands and housework-burdened moms were being banished from British advertising, as a crackdown on “harmful” gender stereotypes came into force Friday. Under new rules, advertisements must not include “gender stereotypes which are likely to cause harm or serious or widespread offense.” Examples include depictions of a man failing to change a diaper or a woman to park a car, or ads that suggest women are solely responsible for cooking and cleaning. Complaints will be assessed by industry watchdog the Advertising Standards Authority. It doesn’t have the power to impose fines, but British broadcasters are bound...

    OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Former President Barack Obama and Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry told minority boys on Tuesday that they matter and urged them to make the world a better place. Obama was in Oakland, California, to mark the fifth anniversary of an initiative he started after the 2012 shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. The death of the African-American teen sparked protests over racial profiling.

    Alternative Path January 9, 2019 Kim du Toit Advice, Business, Guy Stuff, Men & Women I have often ruminated that young men need to evaluate their career choices very carefully before picking the one they think will work best for them. Increasingly, it’s become apparent that going to college is not a worthwhile option for them — unless they want to be hounded, harassed and vilified just for the “crime” of being a man, that is. (10,000 instances of false accusations, man-hating professors and the courses they teach have been omitted on grounds of brevity.) Now, we’ve seen in other...

    It seems these days like everyone and their genderfluid grandma has some “profound” insight into the minds and world of men. Men and masculinity are spoken of in the media with sharp tones of fear mixed with disdain, as if we are a dangerous aberrant genetic anomaly that needs to be studied under a special microscope that will protect the observer from being influenced by our vitriolic pheromones. The problem is, most of these “experts” on manhood are not men at all, or, their observations of male behavior are tainted with deep-seated resentments. That is to say, they are hardly...

    Masculinity is increasingly coming under attack in America. The American Psychological Association has practically declared it a mental illness: “Traditional masculinity — marked by stoicism, competitiveness, dominance, and aggression — is, on the whole, harmful.” Of course, UT-Austin did a "MasculinUT" campaign that essentially did the same thing with ads like this: These sorts of attacks on men and attempts to redefine masculinity as something more feminine have gotten so ever-present that even a razor company like Gillette is crapping on men, noting that only “some” of them are good and warning us about toxic masculinity.

"We value freedom of speech and freedom of commerce. We want to create change and create jobs," Prinkshop's creators say on their site. "Our bold, text-based graphic products feature issues ranging from women's reproductive rights and push for equality to education and gun control."

    The second comes from The Atlantic’s Emma Green. Detailing the findings of a survey conducted by her magazine and the Public Religion Research Institute, she notes that 61 percent of white working-class men view college as a “risky gamble.” Green’s report contained this explanation: “The enduring narrative of the American dream is that if you study and get a college education and work hard, you can get ahead,” said Robert P. Jones, the CEO of PRRI. “The survey shows that many white working-class Amer­icans, especially men, no longer see that path available to them. . . . It is this sense of economic fatalism,...
