    A young San Bernardino couple is going public with questions about supermodel Gisele Bundchen's "no questions asked" $5000.00 reward offer, which remains unpaid more than two weeks after the couple returned Bundchen's dog only to be arrested at gunpoint, handcuffed and held in custody. Although cleared by the police, the couple has no explanation from Bundchen of why they were treated like criminals and denied the reward. Hollywood, CA (PRWEB) December 10, 2004 -- Supermodel Gisele Bundchen’s “no questions asked” $5000.00 reward offer for her lost dog just before Thanksgiving, may have gotten her dog back, but, according to the...

Waterman would appear to be any parent's ideal child - an honor student, an athlete, a gifted singer. But for months, she planned her mother's murder with two of her former boyfriends who are eight years her senior, according to Alaska State Troopers. Two weekends ago on Southeast's Prince of Wales Island, their plot ended in the death of 48-year-old Lauri Waterman of Craig, according to court papers. Lauri Waterman, a teacher's aide and community activist, was killed by one of the men using a...

    WASHINGTON (July 13) - The Democratic National Committee released on Tuesday its lineup of the big-name politicians speaking at the convention this month, and it included every major Democratic star except one. There were Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter, near the top of the list. Al Gore was there, too, and so was Edward M. Kennedy. Even the wife of the Iowa governor made the cut. But Hillary Rodham Clinton, the junior senator from New York and one of the most prominent names in the party, was nowhere to be found. That caught the attention of many Democrats, who wondered...

    A 13-year-old boy who gave a girl a lovebite at school is facing an assault charge, an allegation his parents call excessive. Police in Richland, Texas, issued the teenager with a summons for assault by contact after the girl's parents reported the incident to Richland Middle School, officials said. The boy's mother, Patricia Singh, said her son had been punished with a three-day suspension from school. He was not named because of his age. Assault by contact, a class C misdemeanour, carries a fine of about $US280 ($400). The boy, who pleaded not guilty at his court hearing, told the...

    State and local officials disagree on the accuracy of a national study estimating that one Utah woman in five has been raped. However, most of them do agree that the situation bears a closer look. And a new multidisciplinary state council plans on taking one. The Utah Sexual Violence Council is made up of representatives from victim advocates and from organizations including the Department of Health, the Department of Corrections, the Utah Sentencing Commission and the Utah Coalition Against Sexual Assault. "It's just in its infancy," said Ned Searle, domestic violence state coordinator. "We're having the first real meetings in...

The hallways are filled with lip-glossed divas in designer clothes and packs of girls in midriff-baring track tops.

    Abiding Truth Ministries ^ | 2001 | Scott Lively
    Scripture teaches in Genesis that when God created man in His image, He created us male and female. The implication is that God’s character spans the full spectrum of masculine and feminine qualities. This attribute is also revealed in the person of Jesus, born as a male, but manifesting both masculinity and femininity in His actions. When exhibiting feminine qualities, Jesus was more nurturing and relationship-oriented than any woman. When exhibiting masculinity, Jesus was more forceful and results-oriented than any man.Unfortunately, the modern American church, along with the majority of its leaders, has rejected masculinity in favor of an effeminate...

    I was what the sociologists call an "early adopter" of feminism. Soon after arriving at college, in 1970, I knew that it was the religion for me. I had discarded the religion I grew up with, Christianity, as an insultingly simpleminded thing, but feminism filled the gap. Like a religion it offered a complete philosophical worldview, one that displayed me as victim in the center, a feature with immeasurable appeal to a female teenager. Feminism had its own gnostic analysis of reality, by which everything in existence was decoded to be about the oppression of women; it had sacred books,...

Hymowitz Argue all you want with many feminist policies, but few quarrel with feminism’s core moral insight, which changed the lives (and minds) of women forever: that women are due the same rights and dignity as men. So, as news of the appalling miseries of women in the Islamic world has piled up, where are the feminists? Where’s the outrage? For a brief moment after September 11, when pictures of those blue alien-creaturely shapes in Afghanistan filled the papers, it seemed as if feminists...

    When Israeli troops stormed Bethlehem last week, they seized an unlikely suspect on Israel's most-wanted list: Jala Abu Ajamia, a 17-year-old schoolgirl with no record of violence or political activism. At least a dozen soldiers entered her home in the Dheisheh refugee camp at 3 a.m. Friday. After capturing Abu Ajamia in her pajamas, they searched the house and questioned relatives for five hours, then handed her over to Israel's Shin Bet security service. Abu Ajamia attracted Israeli scrutiny in a most unusual way by complaining about an arranged marriage to a 27-year-old cousin. The teenager, who was then 16,...

    Let's make sure boys get to university Stephen T. Easton National Post The last decade of the 20th century saw a profound change in the enrollment structure of Canadian higher education. From 1987 to 1997, total university enrollment increased from 486,000 to 573,000. At the same time, the percentage of women enrolled increased from rough parity in 1987 to a level where there are now 120 women for every 100 men on campus. Remarkably, the national average is is reflected faithfully at the provincial level. This may be a boon for the social lives of the young men, but the...

    Pushy feminists, who want to remake competitive boys into cooperative girls, run rampant in my neck of western Massachusetts. There are five colleges in the area, including two for women - Smith and Mount Holyoke - that aid and abet this old girls network through their respective (but not respectable) women's studies departments.

    San Francisco's mantle as "the city of tolerance" is beginning to rival Philadephia's "the city of brotherly love" tag for sheer absurdity, following two separate anti-Arab and misogynistic attacks Tuesday. Vandals hit two addresses in the Mission District -- the headquarters of Community United Against Violence at 160 14th St., and the Women's Building at 3543 18th St. -- spray-painting slogans such as "Kill Arabs" and "C---" across walls, doors and a much-loved community mural.

    Gloria Steinem should expatriate to the world of radical Islam. It's the best solution for America and for our enemies, judging from yet another ludicrous speech she delivered, Friday, in Palm Beach. According to the Palm Beach Post, "Whether discussing pedophile priests, domestic violence or the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, Steinem found the inequality between men and women a big part of the problem." But, regarding Sept. 11th, it wasn't the radical elements of the Muslim world that drew most of Steinem's ire. No. Instead, it was the way "we" raise our men. "We need to raise our...

The Teen Endangerment Act (H.R. 476), called the Child Custody Protection Act by its sponsors, would criminalize anyone other than a parent who accompanies a minor across state lines for an abortion if she has not complied with her home state's parental consent or notification law.

    College Girls: Unpaid Whores If you were to visit a women’s studies department at an elite university, you would encounter a wide variety of courses on the sexual liberation of women. The main thrust of these courses is that for too long, various social institutions have prevented women from exploring their sexual desires. Now, thanks to the heroism of such women as Gloria Steinem, Margaret Sanger, and Bella Abzug, women have been partially freed from the oppressive forces of male patriarchy. In other words, young women are encouraged to be whores. The chant of Gen. Y college babes might as...

    "In the 1960´s, the elite media invented second-wave feminism as part of the elite agenda to dismantle civilization and create a New World Order." Since writing these words last week, I have discovered that before she became a feminist leader, Gloria Steinem worked for the CIA spying on Marxist students in Europe and disrupting their meetings. She became a media darling due to her CIA connections. MS Magazine, which she edited for many years was indirectly funded by the CIA. Steinem has tried to suppress this information, unearthed in the 1970´s by a radical feminist group called “Red Stockings.” In...

Bush makes her debut address at the United Nations on Friday to commemorate International Women's Day after promoting the rights of Afghan women for months, an unexpected consequence of the U.S.-led war in Afghanistan. In November she delivered the weekly White House radio address, the first wife of a president to do so, saying the plight of women and children ...

    Fathers and Abortion Men Hurt Too (Fathers suffer from the abortion of their children...While the prochoice movement ignores the rights of fathers in this area, the pro-life movement acknowledges their pain and offers healing forgiveness, and a strong affirmation of the value of fatherhood.) If you're facing an abortion decision, or if there's one in your past, there's something you should know. Evidence is mounting that the fathers of aborted children can be dramatically affected by an abortion decision. Why are you affected? In many ways men respond very differently to the loss of a child from abortion. To understand ...

McCorvey by Norma McCorvey with Gary Thomas I could out-cuss the most crass of men and women; I could out-drink many of the Dallas taverns' regulars; and I was known for my hot temper. When pro-lifers called me a murderer, I called them worse. When people held up signs of aborted fetuses, I spit in their face. I had a reputation to protect, after all. As the plaintiff in the infamous Supreme Court case Roe v. Wade, my life was inextricably tied up ...

    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;The recently released results of an Election Day poll indicate there is a growing pro-life consensus among voters, according to Kellyanne Fitzpatrick, president and chief executive officer of the Polling Co. &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;While the conventional wisdom among the political elite is that the majority of women demand wide availability of abortion, the data from 803 voters leaving the polls last November indicated that a plurality of the electorate (48 percent) and a little more than half of female voters (51 percent) favored a range of pro-life positions. &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;“A pro-life candidate, except perhaps for some of the coastal and New England states ...

    Sydney Morning Herald ^ | 12/12/01 | Barry Maley
    Divorce, child care and pensions have grown as radicals urged women to flee the family 'monster', writes Barry Maley. For some radical feminists, males are patriarchal oppressors and the family is their torture chamber. So they impose a taboo on men talking about the effects of feminism upon family life and the rearing of children. Yet these feminists have dismissed the preferences of a great many women, gloried in the expulsion of men from the family, and made life harder for many children. But first, an important distinction. There are two kinds of feminism: "liberal" or equal opportunity feminism, and ...

    Ann Coulter April 18, 2000 Women are complaining again, this just in from Lifetime Television ("Television for Women"!), which commissioned a poll of women voters recently. According to the summary provided by the Lifetime Television Web page, the top concerns of half or more of the respondents were: the "insufficient effort to cure breast cancer," gun control, medical benefits, child care, the rising cost of a college education, the connection between pollution and health risks, violence against women, and equal pay. Nearly three-fourths believe it is more important for the government to shore up the Social Security Ponzi scheme than ...

    Imagine that a feminist heroine like Carol Gilligan or Catherine MacKinnon had been silenced by federal officials at a government-sponsored conference, simply for airing her feminist views. Then imagine MacKinnon or Gilligan being put upon by a group of paid government consultants and told by a man to "shut the f*ck up, bitch" while the rest of the crowd laughed at her derisively. Now imagine our feminist heroine, having been publicly silenced and insulted, finally leaving the conference, while the federal officials running the show did nothing to challenge or chastise the man who had hurled the insult.

That is, there were no calls to debate the refreshingly anti-establishment women´s organization. Nor was there a flurry of written rebuttals to the IWF ad (the paper carried approximately two dissenting letters), meetings or discussion groups. Instead, campus feminists, represented ...

    City Journal ^ | Fall 1999 | Roger Scruton
    Feminists have harped and harpied on about the position of women in modern societies. But what about the men? The radical changes in sexual mores, patterns of employment, and domestic life have turned their lives upside down. Men now encounter women not as "the weaker sex" but as equal competitors in the public sphere—the sphere where men used to be in charge. And in the private sphere, where an ancient division of labor once gave guidance to those who crossed its threshold, there is no knowing what strategy will be most effective. Manly gestures—holding open a door for a ...

    It's all about a little baby whose life was saved even before he was born. The pre-born child's mother was very young – and single. She was a pregnant teenager. Of course, we know now that the conception was Divine. But very early in her pregnancy, only Mary knew the baby was of God. Joseph, her fiancé, at first thought she had become pregnant by another man. Joseph must have been devastated. I'm sure he was both furious and heart-broken at the evident betrayal by the woman he loved. He probably also felt like killing her, which would have been ...
