    A bad marriage with frequent conflicts could have a serious detrimental impact on your health, according to psychologists. The researchers at the universities of Nevada and Michigan monitored 373 heterosexual couples to investigate whether disagreeing about multiple topics – such as children, money, in-laws and leisure activities – had negative health implications. “We followed married couples over the first 16 years of marriage and compared the subjective health of wives and husbands who reported a greater number of conflict topics to those who reported fewer,” said Rosie Shrout, who presented the preliminary results at the International Association for Relationship Research...
  • I’m in My 40s, Child-Free and Happy. Why Won’t Anyone Believe Me?

    A few months before my 42nd birthday, I was out to dinner with friends and found myself seated next to a well-known older male writer. I happened to be in the final stages of finishing a proposal for a memoir about being a single woman over 40 without children, and was inwardly marveling at the timing of our encounter. I was a fan of his. Perhaps he might offer some wisdom? Words of encouragement? As drinks were delivered I sketched the outline of the story: No one had prepared me for how exhilarating life could be on my own. I...
  • Smart women need to marry down to become mothers because there aren't enough smart men [tr]

    Intelligent women should consider marrying less clever men if they want to start a family, according to researchers. There are simply not enough brainy men to go round – so women may need to widen their search, warned the author of a report that found a growing number of professional women were freezing their eggs because they couldn’t find ‘Mr Right’. ‘There are fewer educated men in the world for educated women to partner with,’ said Marcia Inhorn, professor of anthropology at Yale University. ‘So if women want to find a partner with whom they can have children, they need...

    **SNIP** While politicians consider whether or not they’d support a nominee who opposes the 1973 decision that legalized abortion, some women have a strategy to drum up support for a woman’s right to choose: the #Lysistrata2018 movement. Named after Aristophanes’s ancient Greek comedy Lysistrata, in which women refuse to sleep with their warring husbands until they agree to a truce, the movement is the brainchild of author and political journalist Jennifer Wright. In a tweet posted on Monday, Wright suggested that single women stop dating and having sex with men expressing anti-abortion views. Women could indicate their stance by adding...

    Jessica Boer, 26, kissing her cat Kip at her home in Portage, Mich. Like an increasing number of people in her generation, she does not plan to have children. “Now we know we have a choice,” she said.Wanting more leisure time and personal freedom; not having a partner yet; not being able to afford child-care — these were the top reasons young adults gave for not being sure they wanted children, reports a new survey conducted by Morning Consult for the NYT. About a quarter said they expected to have fewer than they wanted. The largest shares said they delayed...

    A North Carolina woman allegedly shot and killed a man she met through dating site “Farmers Only” after their relationship ended, according to officials. Sheri Williams Jones, 57, turned herself in Monday at the Cumberland County Detention Center in the 2015 murder of 61-year-old Clarence Smith, according to the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office. The sheriff’s office didn’t say why it took three years for Jones to be charged for the shooting, which she claimed at the time was in “self-defense.”

    In the same way that the show had an outsized influence on women’s fashion, so too did it influence their behavior. The latter didn't work out so well. “Some people are settling down, some people are settling, and some people refuse to settle for anything less than butterflies.” “The most exciting, challenging and significant relationship of all is the one you have with yourself. And if you find someone to love the you you love, well, that’s just fabulous.” — Carrie Bradshaw This month marks the twenty-year anniversary of the iconic television series “Sex and the City.” With smart writing...
  • Is It Fair for Boys to Compete on Girls Sports Teams?

    What makes this story significant is that Terry Miller is not a girl. Terry Miller is biologically male—a transgender student who was allowed to compete on the girls team to match his “gender identity.” Miller had previously competed on the boys track team. This story gets worse. Another transgender student, Andraya Yearwood, came in second place in the 100-meter dash. So, two girls lost their opportunities to compete in the New England championships because two biological boys who "identify" as girls were allowed to compete on their team, and won handily. It’s going to take more than reversing the Obama...

    The constant shouting about how women make 77 cents for every dollar a man makes is a misleading and ultimately inaccurate statement. Women are working more than they ever have and are in turn making more money now than at any point in our nation’s history. The discrepancies in income between men and women come down to choices and the statistics that the moaners of gender inequality in the workplace are promulgating a false narrative. The gender wage gap is essentially nonexistent. This is a truth that many on the left do not want to face but this cannot be...

    It’s not that Eric Schneiderman (the now-former New York attorney general accused of abuse by multiple women) pushed me over the edge. My edge has been crossed for a long time, before President Trump, before Harvey Weinstein, before “mansplaining” and “incels.” Before live-streaming sexual assaults and red pill men’s groups and rape camps as a tool of war and the deadening banality of male prerogative. Seen in this indisputably true context, it seems logical to hate men. I can’t lie, I’ve always had a soft spot for the radical feminist smackdown, for naming the problem in no uncertain terms. I’ve...

    The U.S. officially hit a new low in birth rate and, somehow, scientists are astonished. Experts will argue this is merely a natural phenomenon — potentially the product of demographic transition, meaning, as a developing society reaches new technological echelons, a longer period of education is necessary for an increasingly complex workforce. This causes higher investment in children, which means fewer children are born. That’s one contributing factor. Other parties will argue the couples are having children later. Male and female childbearing ages have risen to 28 and 30.9, respectively. This is another contributing factor. Yet, scientists never ask themselves...

    Popular clothing retailer J.Crew sparked some debate after posting a photo of a young boy wearing a T-shirt with the saying "I am a feminist too" on it. "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 perennial question of whether men and women can be just friends is finding new life among evangelical Christians. Evangelical author Aimee Byrd is promoting intimate friendships between opposite-sex Christians as a way to bond spiritually while modeling for the world that men and women can be close without having to worry about bad behavior and harassment claims. Byrd has written a series of blog posts on the topic and promises to elaborate in her new book “Why Can’t We Be Friends? Avoidance Is Not Purity,” set to be released in late June. Not surprisingly, Byrd is no fan of...

    There’s something tragic and unequivocally devastating happening to men in America today. During this #MeToo era, men are seen as rapists and misogynists when in fact most are gentlemen. Sadly, men are literally a dying breed. Masculinity is dismissed in favor of the feminization of males in the U.S. This is a dangerous trend and the statistics of the decline of men in America are very troubling, especially because it is rarely publicly acknowledged. Fox News’ Tucker Carlson rolled out a special series on his show titled, “Something Ominous is Happening to Men.” Here are some scary facts he pointed...
  • Feminism Is Winning; Destroying Boys, Gender, Family and Society

    05/14/2018 8:06:47 AM PDT · by Liberty7732 · 50 replies
    There is a dirty little secret that the information gatekeepers of the Left block from Americans: modern feminism is slicing a path of destruction through the lives of men, women, families and society. This is not the equal pay for equal work feminism. That has long been resolved legally and culturally. This is the anti-patriarchy modern feminism. But there is essentially no patriarchy left in America. CEOs and most other leadership-count disparities are a function of women’s individual choices — countercultural choices, at that — and even then may be temporary as women are pressured by the increasingly feminized culture...

It’s frustrating to see a lot of men blow it and win. And we hold ourselves to these crazy, crazy standards.’ Going on to call for change, Michelle explained:...
  • Millennials are turned off sex, study suggests, with one in eight still virgins at 26

    Millennials are waiting longer to have sex, with one in eight still virgins at 26 years old, new research has found. The sharp rise in the number of young people waiting longer to have sex may be because of a "fear of intimacy" and the pressure of social media, according to analysts. The Next Steps project, the brainchild of the Department for Education which is now managed by University College London, has tracked 16,000 people born in 1989-90 since they were 14. The interviews, conducted in 2016, discovered a rise in the number of Millenials waiting longer to have sex...
