  • Male-Female Relations Are Approaching the Status of Race Relations

    RUSH: Okay. I just have one more thing here before we swerve back into the sexual harassment story. And I have to tell you, folks, there’s a part of this that is beginning to make me nervous, as an umbrella thing, not specifically. I’m just spotting a trend, and I know you have too. I’m sure I’m not the only person in this crowd. But you know, this business of sexual abuse is quickly approaching the same dynamics as racism in our culture. And just as racism is a horrible thing to be accused of, and depending on how it’s...
  • Listen, dear men. Claiming sexual assault is not fun

    Twitter has a daily dosage of women and men who are speaking – from decades ago to last week –about being sexually assaulted. More often than not, they are speaking in great, precise detail and naming their attackers. It's like, as one Twitter user said, that Hugh Hefner's creepy ‘pervdom’ was serving as a force field of protection and now that he's died, everything vile has come out to play in the sunlight outside of the Playboy Mansion.

    Donald Trump. Bill O'Reilly. Harvey Weinstein. Michael Oreskes. Kevin Spacey. Casey Affleck. Louis C.K. Roy Moore. Larry Nassar. The list keeps growing, and we know that for every big name accused of sexual misconduct there are countless more in the stories of millions of women who have been coming forward to say “me too.” In this moment, it is crucial for men to be speaking publicly and unequivocally in support of standards for sexual behavior based on respect, meaningful mutual consent, and awareness of differences in power. But the scope and depth of the problem require more than this.

    Radical feminism has embraced the penultimate line of the strange 70s movie Zardoz: “The Penis is Evil.” Of course, the first line is one they’d view with horror: “The Gun is Good.” But that’s because, in the minds of feminists, the gun is nothing more than an extended penis anyway. Certainly, comparing gun ownership with penis size is common enough among them.

     Hillary Clinton on Wednesday warned that if President Trump directs his Justice Department to investigate her role in a 2010 sale of a uranium company, it would be “a disastrous step into politicizing the Justice Department.”  "This is such an abuse of power," Clinton said in an interview with Mother Jones, following reports that the Justice Department is considering appointing a special counsel to investigate. "I regret if they do it because it will be such a disastrous step to politicizing the justice system," she said. "If they send a signal that we’re going to be like some dictatorship, like some authoritarian regime, where political opponents are going...

    Guess they got their marching orders earlier this week as it's a different person every night this week on FAUX. Tonight was Greg Jarrett's turn. I cannot paraphrase exactly what he said but the segment was supposed to be about Bill Clinton's past sexual excapades but Jarrett instead opened up convicting Moore of the accusations levied against him. Maybe someone can post up the video segment or you can watch the replay at 10PM PST.

    The director of women's and gender studies at a Pennsylvania university claimed "toxic masculinity" is "killing everyone" and blamed the phenomenon for the Texas church shooting. Professor Colleen Clemens at Kutztown University in Berks County, Pa. tweeted that "Toxic Masculinity is killing everyone - repeat - toxic masculinity is killing everyone - repeat." Tucker Carlson said he asked Clemens to come on his program to discuss her accusations, but that the woman replied that she "feared for her safety."

    Women bear the heaviest brunt of global warming, and are less empowered to contribute to solutions. A new action plan agreed at the Bonn climate talks aims to reverse this inequality. The women of the Marshall Islands and the Pacific have been fighting colonialism and injustice for a long time. They bore the brunt of the long term effects of nuclear testing, and women leaders like Lijon Eknilang and Darlene Keju-Johnson brought these issues to the international stage. For women, fighting for justice – including climate justice – can be downright dangerous. Last year was one of the deadliest for...

    Over in one corner sat Alice, a strong-minded 27-year-old who always said what she thought, regardless of how much it might hurt someone else. In the other corner was Sarah, a thirtysomething high-flier who would stand up for herself momentarily - then burst into tears and run for the ladies. Their simmering fight lasted hours, egged on by spectators taking sides and fuelling the anger. Sometimes other girls would join in, either heckling aggressively or huddling defensively in the toilets. It might sound like a scene from a tawdry reality show such as Big Brother, but the truth is a...

    Moves to make French more female-friendly have sparked impassioned debate in France, with an appalled Academie Francaise warning of a "mortal danger" to the language of Moliere. At the centre of the debate is the growing use of formulations such as "lecteur.rice.s" for the word "readers" to embrace both genders.

    "The common greeting will be replaced with "non-gendered terms," such as "passengers," "riders," or "everyone." MTA spokesman Jon Weinstein said banning "ladies and gentlemen" would provide riders with "clearer information." "We're fundamentally changing the way we talk with riders to give them better and clearer information," he said."

    In a particularly scathing 2001 essay for the London Review of Books, Jenny Diski wrote about a book titled Misogyny: The Male Malady, by an anthropology professor named David Gilmore. Diski argued that the book, which billed itself as a “comprehensive historical and anthropological survey of woman-hating that casts new light on this age-old bias,” was nothing more than a wan apologia for sexism and, in her words, “the real victims of the malady of misogyny: the psychogenically challenged male who needs all the understanding we can give him.” I’ll give you more Diski here, because it’s so good: “Lord,...

    The pink knit cap made famous by last winter’s Women’s March on Washington is already an anachronism. Not more than a couple dozen or so of the eye-catching toppers bobbed among the 4,000 or so activists attending “Women’s March Presents: The Inaugural Women’s Convention.” And those few “pussy hats” stuck out like embarrassing artifacts, reminders of the high hopes many on the left held for an anti-Trump feminist revival just 10 months ago. These three days at Detroit’s Cobo Center are billed as a chance to “Reclaim Our Time” and “March On” in the momentous spirit of the post-inaugural protests....
  • Why parents should never spank children

    The Conversation ^ | Oct 29, 2017 | T.O. Afifi, E. Romano
    The research clearly shows that spanking is related to an increased likelihood of many poor health, social and developmental outcomes. These poor outcomes include mental health problems, substance use, suicide attempts and physical health conditions along with developmental, behavioural, social and cognitive problems. Equally important, there are no research studies showing that spanking is beneficial for children. Those who say spanking is safe for a child if done in a specific way are, it would seem, simply expressing opinions. And these opinions are not supported by scientific evidence.

    A professor at Florida International University recently argued that the Disney film Beauty and the Beast is rife with “toxic masculinity.” Bryant Sculos, who teaches politics at Florida International University, argues in an academic journal article that Gaston and the Beast, the two male protagonists of the story, are emblematic of “toxic masculinity” in both the 1991 animated version of the film and the 2017 live-action remake, albeit in different ways.

    The reflective Mary Eberstadt has the latest Weekly Standard cover story, asserting that the late rise of identity politics especially among the young descends from the decline in family, despite myriad other theories. An excerpt: Maybe that cultural scream of ‘mine!’ is issuing from souls who did have something taken from them—only something more elemental than the totemic objects now functioning as figurative blankies for lost and angry former children. As of today, less than 65 percent of American children live with both biological parents, even as other familial boughs have broken via external forces like the opioid crisis, criminality...

    DETROIT — As the sun shined on Detroit on Saturday, the halls and conference rooms of the city’s Cobo Center convention hall were packed with a diverse array of women. Many had come from across the country to answer a key question that’s been burning for nearly a year now: What’s next? The inaugural Women’s Convention marked the first major follow-up to January’s Women’s March. That nationwide event, which took place in the wake of Donald Trump’s inauguration, saw millions of women take to the streets of cities across the country to take direct action, assert their rights and make...

    On her 70th birthday, Hillary Clinton was an honoree at the Women’s Media Awards, becoming the organization’s inaugural recipient of their Wonder Woman Award—and who better to fit the bill? As Women’s Media Center co-founder Jane Fonda said in her opening remarks, Clinton has for years been changing lives and ensuring that women’s rights are human rights and vice versa. “Over the years, I’ve watched Hillary break glass ceilings and champion women and girls and fight for human rights domestically and internationally by [leading with] compassion and passion and dedication,” Fonda said. “She has accomplished so much, all in the...

    The official guardians of the French tongue the Académie Française sounded the alarm bell this week saying the language was in “mortal danger”. And it’s nothing to do with English this time. The so-called “immortals” at the Académie Française, the official body tasked with guarding the French language from unwanted influences (like English) don’t speak out often, but when they do, people tend to listen; and on Thursday night, the Académie issued a “solemn warning” intended to grab the attention of the government. The immortals are furious about the rise of so-called “inclusive writing”, which basically puts the masculine AND...

    Donna Karan is still kicking herself. Almost two weeks ago, in a speech that could’ve been straight out of the Jihadist’s Guide to the Hijab, Karan gave a bizarre defense of her good friend, Harvey Weinstein. In between grinning broadly like the Cheshire Cat on Ritalin, the designer rambled on about how women could be asking for sexual harassment and groping because of how they dress. “How do we display ourselves, how do we present ourselves as women, what are we asking? Are we asking for it, you know, by presenting all the sensuality and all the sexuality?” she wondered....
