  • Why So Many Women Cheat on Their Husbands

    09/21/2017 9:16:10 PM PDT · by nickcarraway · 186 replies
    One of the more interesting facts in Esther Perel’s new book, State of Affairs: Rethinking Infidelity, comes near the beginning. Since 1990, notes the psychoanalyst and writer, the rate of married women who report they’ve been unfaithful has increased by 40 percent, while the rate among men has remained the same. More women than ever are cheating, she tells us, or are willing to admit that they are cheating — and while Perel spends much of her book examining the psychological meaning, motivation, and impact of these affairs, she offers little insight into the significance of the rise itself.

    SAN FRANCISCO — Female employees are paid less than male staff members at most job levels within Google, and the pay disparity extends as women climb the corporate ladder, according to data compiled by employees that provide a snapshot of salary information at the internet giant. A spreadsheet, obtained by The New York Times, contains salary and bonus information for 2017 that was shared by about 1,200 United States Google employees, or about 2 percent of the company’s global work force. While Google said the data painted an incomplete picture of how people are paid, the salary details shared by...

    Mid-February is the most frigid time of year, so it’s always seemed apt that that this is when they choose to hold the highest holy day of the cult of coupledom. If you’re reading this, there’s a not insignificant chance that you are one or several of the following: a) young b) female c) single or d) nauseated by the sheer volume of saccharine romantic propaganda sloshing around the public sphere at this particular time of year. But none of us live outside culture, and feeling frustrated on Valentine’s Day doesn’t make you stupid or duped or a mindless drone...

    The challenges and potential business opportunities China's nearly 200 million "single population" has given rise to have been making headlines for some time now. Single population refers to the group of people who are not married despite reaching the legal marriageable age, and those that are divorced or widowed. According to China's population and employment statistical yearbook 2015, the total single population aged above 20-people who are unable to get married as well as those that choose to remain single-was about 140 million in 2014. According to a survey in 2015 more than 58 million people in China live alone...

    If you've been online the last few days, you've probably seen this photo. This particular photo started going viral in February – but not in the way you probably know it. According to meme chroniclers knowyourmeme, the first use of it was on an Instagram page where followers were asked to "tag that friend who falls in love every month." Almost 30,000 people liked the photo on Instagram. After its short pop of virality, the photo wasn't really seen for almost six months – until it was tweeted out with captions on each person. Then it became the meme you...

    James Damore, the Google engineer that was fired for writing a memo criticizing the company’s diversity policies, said in a Thursday interview that Google employees publicly criticize people based on race and gender in meetings. “You can openly shame white people or all men [at Google], and we do this in our company-wide meetings,” Damore said. “There’s definitely a bias toward certain movements.” During the interview with the Daily Wire’s Ben Shapiro, Damore claimed that Google firing him for pushing “harmful gender stereotypes” only revealed the company’s overblown emphasis on diversity, denying allegations that his memo had pushed “harmful gender stereotypes.” “They’re putting...

    A former QVC executive filed a lawsuit on Thursday, against the matchmaking company she paid $150,000 to help her find a mate. In the lawsuit, divorced mother-of-four Darlene Daggett said Kelleher International promised to hand pick her wealthy bachelors, with the goal of finding someone she could spend her retirement years with. Instead, the 62-year-old former president of QVC's U.S. commerce, says she forked over six figures but ended up suffering a series of disastrous dates with men who were more than just unsuitable. 'Kelleher’s "highly screened" matches for Daggett included men who were married, mentally unstable, physically ill, pathological...

    Princeton University is looking to hire an “Interpersonal Violence Clinician and Men’s Engagement Manager” to develop programming targeting high-risk, campus-based populations for prevention of “interpersonal violence,” such as sexual harassment, sexual assault, domestic/dating violence, and stalking. The new position is designed to work closely with the campus’ Sexual Harassment/Assault Advising, Resources and Education (SHARE) office, which bills itself as a “survivor-centered, trauma-informed confidential resource on campus for the Princeton University community.” As is implicitly evident by the descriptions of these offices, the men’s program puts forth an aggressor based platform, whereas the women’s platform is victim based.

    The New York Times is facing blowback on social media after publishing an essay by an African-American reporter who accused white women of racism for not ceding space on city sidewalks to black men. In a Wednesday essay titled "Was That Racist," reporter Greg Howard singled out white women for forcing him "off the sidewalk completely" when walking towards him, not allowing a straight path. "In seven years of living and walking here, I’ve found that most people walk courteously — but that white women, at least when I’m in their path, do not," Howard writes.

They are good boys, in the ways good boys are, but they are not safe boys. I’m starting to believe there’s no such thing.
