    Business Insider ^ | 04/21/2016 | Harriet Sinclair, IB Times
    US presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton has confirmed that there will be women on her shortlist for vice president, potentially making history if elected on an all-female ticket. The democrat politician's team confirmed, on 21 April, that women would make the cut, immediately leading to speculation about who the female candidate was, with liberal senator Elizabeth Warren's name coming up, although Clinton's campaign team did not put forward any names. Clinton's campaign chairman, John Podesta, told the Boston Globe she wanted "the best person to make the case to the American people. "We'll start with a broad list and then begin...

    Speaking at an event for women in Los Angeles this week, Barbra Streisand complained that society is so misogynistic, even female laboratory mice are being discriminated against. "Gender discrimination drives me crazy," said the multiple Grammy and Academy award-winning actress and singer. "Women are still treated as second-class citizens when it comes to equal pay in the workplace and equal representation in Congress." [Snip] Streisand, who has made contributions toward heart disease research for nearly three decades, then spoke out about gender inequality in medical research. "Gender inequality even extends to mice in the labs," she said. "They're all male!"...

Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) responded to President Barack Obama mocking assertion that caution from Republicans over accepting thousands of Syrian refugees is about being scared of widows and orphans.

    Hillary Clinton praised female musicians who offer young girls a positive role model, writing that none of these singers "had success handed to her" in a Thursday op-ed for Billboard magazine. The Democratic presidential front-runner says she's a fan of artists including Lady Gaga, Lana Del Rey, Demi Lovato and Missy Elliott, women whose "talent is dazzling" and matched by their work ethic. "They all had to keep at it, even in the face of failure and discouragement - they kept singing, kept writing, kept getting better and better," Clinton wrote. "They did it because they knew they had something...

For eight days, the female volunteers will live inside a wood-panelled suite of rooms at Moscow's Institute of Biomedical Problems, renowned for its wacky research into the psychological and physical effects of space travel. The institute in 2010 locked six male international volunteers in an isolation experiment lasting 520 days, to simulate a flight to Mars and back. "Such a crew is taking part for the first...

    A drug dubbed the female Viagra is set to be approved by a US watchdog this week paving the way for its arrival in the UK. Industry experts claim flibanserin could be given the green light within days, making it the first officially sanctioned drug for low female sex drive on the market. Unlike its male equivalent, the drug combats a flagging libido not by targeting the genitals but the pleasure centre of a womans brain, with women who took the pill every day in trials having sex more frequently and enjoying it more.

    The first-ever "female viagra" in the world came one step closer to coming to market, as a key advisory committee to the Food and Drug Administration voted Thursday afternoon to recommend that the FDA approve it with conditions. The committee voted 18-6 to recomend that the FDA approve flibanserin, a drug designed to boost otherwise healthy women with low sexual desire. The FDA had twice before rejected the drug, saying the side effect risks of fainting, nausea, dizziness, sleepiness and low-blood pressure outweighed its benefits. Even on Thursday, the committee described the drug benefit as "moderate" or "marginal."

"I have to tell you," he said, "eight years of one demographically-symbolic president is enough."Subtle, it was not.Still, as insults go, it was a rather neatly-crafted twofer.

    If male jihadists become martyrs by getting killed (which is a superb goal)and they get 70 virgins (since they are dead, where is the physical pleasure of an orgasm...in their dreams?). What happens when a female jihadist gets killed, do they have a choice of 70 female virgins or 70 male virgins? And if they choose 70 female virgins, do they get killed a second time because that gay choice is forbidden by Islam? Seems like Islam dullards have written a script of moronic complications to say the least............

VATICAN – Pope Francis strongly condemned “gender ideology” in a private conversation with Austrian Bishop Andreas Laun earlier this year, the bishop related in a recent essay. In doing so, the pope follows in the footsteps of his predecessor, Pope Benedict XVI. Nearing the end of his pontificate, the pope emeritus spoke twice about gender ideology as “a negative trend for humankind,” and a “profound falsehood,” which “it is the duty of pastors of the Church” to put the faithful “on guard against.” Bishop Laun, auxiliary bishop of Salzburg, wrote...

The story makes sure to remind us, naturally, that while this crime is being perpetrated in a Muslim country, the crime is not a rule set in a rigid manner by the precepts of Islam. It is only widespread, we are consoled, because of the actions of the more extreme and integral fringe. In her coverage of this news report, freedom fighter Pamela Geller shrewdly asks...

    "When the Church of England narrowly defeated a measure to allow women to be appointed bishops this week after a dozen years of legislative effort, many observers were surprised. After all, the group has ordained women as priests since 1994-what's the big deal with letting female priests become bishops? The answer helps explain why the measure failed. The Church of England is known for the graciousness with which it accommodates minority theological opinions. Since the 1990s, parties that disagreed about female ordination merely had to tolerate each other's presence. Female bishops, on the other hand, would hold significant ecclesial and...

    The Church of England's governing body blocked a move Tuesday to permit women to serve as bishops in a vote so close it failed to settle the question of female leadership and likely condemned the institution to years more debate on the issue. On Wednesday, Britain's Prime Minister David Cameron told the Church of England to "get on with it" and reverse the decision now, not five years from now. And the Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams, said on Wednesday: "We have to put it very bluntly a lot of explaining to do," he said. "Whatever the motivations...

What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder. 7 They say unto him, Why did Moses then command to give a writing of divorcement, and to put her away? 8 He...

    Which is more than the 23% difference Dems frequently cite. Via Andrew Stiles: House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) refused to answer questions about Senate Democrats paying their female staff members less than male staffers on Thursday. She may have ducked the question because a Washington Free Beacon analysis shows she pays the women on her staff $26,606 less per year on average. According to publicly available salary data at the website Legistorm, Pelosis female employees earned an average annual salary of $96,394 in fiscal year 2011. Male employees earned $123,000 on average, a difference of 27.6 percent. The...

    Back in 2008, I wrote a column called The Four Stages of Conservative Female Abuse. Its a handy guide to the common types of attacks waged against unapologetic conservative women in the public square. You can read my related war on conservative posts here. The vile exploitation of S.E. Cupps image by Hustler magazine see Twitchy for background/reaction and The Blaze for the original story falls under category 2 and 4. Lets review: The first stage of Conservative Female Abuse by the Left is infantilization. Right-wing women cant possibly believe what they believe about the sanctity of life, self-defense,...

    How is it that Dr. Hatem al-Haj, a fellow at the American Academy of Pediatrics and a leading Muslim jurist, misunderstands Islamic law so severely as to think that this purely cultural practice has something to do with Islam? Surely it can't be that the mainstream media and Islamic leaders in the U.S. have been lying to us, and FGM really is justified in Islam, could it? Naaah.
