  • Rejection of common law, history and tradition (Law that redefines fatherhood clears CA state leg)

    CalCatholic ^ | July 18, 2011
    Yet another bill opposed by the state’s Catholic bishops is on its way to the governor for his signature – this one co-sponsored by homosexual advocacy groups that seek to redefine fatherhood in a way that favors children with same-sex parents. The bill, AB 1349, sponsored by Assemblyman Jerry Hill, D-San Mateo, passed the state Senate by a vote of 23-14 on July 14. It cleared the Assembly 52-22 in May. The measure was co-sponsored by Equality California and the National Center for Lesbian Rights. “AB 1349 is a bill that is intended to redefine fatherhood for children born to...

    A congressional panel grilled NASA chief Charlie Bolden today (July 12) on Capitol Hill, repeatedly asking him why the space agency has yet to choose a design for its next-generation heavy-lift rocket. Last year Congress gave NASA until mid-January 2011 to pick a design for the rocket, known as the Space Launch System, that will carry astronauts on deep space missions. NASA still has not made an official decision, and members of the House of Representatives' Committee on Science, Space and Technology took Bolden to task. "We've waited for answers that have not come. We've pleaded for answers that have...

    Andrea Doucet reviews the research on whether women should ‘go ugly,’ and draws a different set of conclusions than Vicky Larson.I’m not an expert on beautiful women and “hot or not” men. And I don’t have much interest in the question Vicky Larson explored in The Huffington Post, which is, “how a smart, accomplished, beautiful woman like Huma Abedin got herself involved with a guy like Weiner.”Yet the wide interest in this story made me take a second look; at last glance over 18,000 people seem to have “liked” it and even Whoopi Goldberg opened a discussion of it on...

    When he was a cash-strapped college student 20 years ago, Todd Whitehurst didn't think too deeply on the consequences of donating sperm. Then, when he was 41, he got an e-mail from a girl named Virginia. "She said, basically, 'I'm 14, and I think I'm your daughter,' " explained Whitehurst, now a 45-year-old medical engineer. Shortly after, he found a son, Tyler, now 14. And another, Gavin, now 16. That led to another child, and another, and yet another. "It was definitely overwhelming," Whitehurst said. "I'm not even sure how many children there are." So far he has found nine...

    Activist Manal Alsharif recently jump-started a campaign to allow Saudi women to drive when she filmed herself behind the wheel. Now Saudi men are planning to put a stop to the fight for women's rights by beating female drivers until they give up. A Saudi group has launched what it is calling “The Iqal Campaign,” a reference to the rope (iqal) used to hold men's headdresses in place. The group suggests that men use the ropes to hit female drivers. Women are planning to take to the streets on June 17 to protest the driving ban. According to Algerian news...

    The other day a friend was telling me about her friend that quit her high-paying marketing job because she absolutely refused to pay her lazy husband alimony after finally kicking him out of the house. Then last night I ran across this story on The Huffington Post examining if it’s fair for women who make more money not to pay alimony or manimony as they are dubbing it? Why should it be any different than when a man makes more and divorces? From The Huffington Post: “There really are two valid sides to this argument. If you think about it,...

    Results of a new study suggest that women are less sexually attracted to men who smile, further cementing the axiom that nice guys finish last. The study found that women were least attracted to smiling, happy men, preferring those who looked proud and powerful or moody and ashamed. On the other hand, men were most sexually attracted to women who looked happy, and least attracted to women who appeared proud and confident. The study, published Tuesday in the journal Emotion, is the first to show that women are sexually attracted to a brooding hulk, while men are sexually attracted to...
  • The recession’s biggest victims: Great Recession could well be known as the ‘Black Mancession’

    MSNBC ^ | May 22, 2011 | Eve Tahmincioglu
    The Great Recession is sometimes known as the “Mancession” because men were hit so hard by unemployment, but a better term for it might be the “Black Mancession.” While recent data show white men are finding more job opportunities than they did last year, black male job seekers are still in an economic black hole. In April, the jobless rate among adult white males was 7.9 percent, up from 4.1 percent three years ago but down from 9.3 percent in the same month last year. Compare that to the jobless rate of 17.0 percent among black men, down from 17.7...

But after bouncing from one therapist to another, he still felt stuck. “They were all female, and they did give me some comfort,” said Mr. Puckett, 30, who works for a domestic-abuse program in Wisconsin. “But I was getting the same rhetoric about changing my behavior without any challenge to see the bigger picture of what was behind these very male coping reactions, like putting your hand through a wall.” He decided to seek out a...

    John Evans is in no hurry to get married. The 25-year-old returned LDS missionary lives with his parents, works full time, takes night classes toward an English degree and, with law school looming, is building up his savings. Evans goes on dates, but they tend to be expensive so he prefers developing friendships first. Sometimes he finds it easier just to hang out with the guys at his Mormon fraternity. “My dating pace is right for me,” Evans says. “I don’t feel stressed.” That kind of modern nonchalance is what may be worrying LDS President Thomas S. Monson and other...

    Two Americans have been arrested by New York City police for allegedly plotting to attack a synagogue in the New York area, Fox News has learned. One source described the case as the latest example of “homegrown” radicalization. The two men were identified as Mohammad Mamdouh, of Moroccan descent, and Ahmed Serhani, of Algerian descent. Serhani allegedly made a general statement about wanting to attack a synagogue –- though no specific synagogue was mentioned, according to initial information obtained by Fox News. With a history of drug dealing, Serhani was hoping to make enough money to purchase weapons and possibly...

    If the election of America's first African-American president was expected to give blacks an economic boost, it hasn't emerged yet. Indeed, the percentage of African-American men with a job has dropped to its lowest level since records began in 1972, according to the government's monthly jobs report released last week. Even as the economy added a better-than-expected 244,000 jobs, the percentage of black males over 20 who are currently employed dropped slightly to 56.9, the Labor Department's April report shows. For whites, the equivalent figure is 68.1 percent. Before this recession, the percentage of black adult men with a job...

    WASHINGTON (AP)—For the first time, American women have passed men in gaining advanced college degrees as well as bachelor's degrees, part of a trend that is helping redefine who goes off to work and who stays home with the kids. Census figures released Tuesday highlight the latest education milestone for women, who began to exceed men in college enrollment in the early 1980s. The findings come amid record shares of women in the workplace and a steady decline in stay-at-home mothers.

    Men are disappearing from the workplace in ways that don't always register on the official unemployment rate The March jobs report released on Apr. 1 seemed like the best in years. Labor Secretary Hilda L. Solis released a statement noting that the four-month drop in the jobless rate, to 8.8 percent from 9.8 percent, was "its largest decline since 1984." Behind the headlines, though, statistics on jobs are far less encouraging. Yes, job growth has picked up somewhat. Yet an equally important reason for the lower jobless rate is that many people, men in particular, have simply given up looking...

The study involved 5,000 singles from around the country to discover the real procedures and rules of dating in this day and age. The results show that while traditional dating rules are still followed, other changes have occurred. New developments like social networking tools and online dating have made it...

Though the study, titled “He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not … Uncertainty Can Increase Romantic Attraction”, was conducted on female undergraduates, one of the researchers said she believes the findings would also be true for males. But how did this phenomenon come about? Are we just bored by guys who are clearly into us, or do we simply enjoy torturing ourselves by being infatuated with people...

He is a church-going teetotaller who has neither been to jail nor served in the military, according to a new survey of more than 7000 people. He also represents an estimated 1.1 million American men and 800,000 women aged 25 to 45 who have never had sex. The study, led by urologist Michael Eisenberg of the University of California, San Francisco, will appear in an upcoming issue of the Journal of Sexual Medicine. His team's survey found that 13.9...

In addition to causing cervical cancer in women, HPV causes warts and cancer of the genitals and anus in both sexes. Over the past several years, scientists have realized that the virus can also cause head and neck cancers. Dr. Aimee R.

    Guys like things. We often work very hard to acquire these things. Guys shop with purpose. We go shopping for items that make our living space more comfortable and more importantly, we are shopping for things that will make other guys envious. However, sometimes we have a tendency to buy items that make it more difficult for us to leave or places of residence. For men, it’s not shoes, stylish dresses and new purses we are shopping for. We need “man” stuff. Things like popular electronic devices, a new driver, or a sex robot. Wait, a sex robot?

    In the beginning God created mankind. They sinned and realized they were naked. They covered up their loins, but they didn’t cover all their nakedness. God would soon cover the nakedness of both man and woman. There was no “cultural definition” of nakedness. What God established from the beginning is the definition of nakedness for all time. What God covered them with was a “coat”. By definition, such an article of clothing begins above the shoulders and would go below the loins. This means chest, stomach, and back were also covered as naked. However, this term “coat” is not the...

    ScienceDaily (Dec. 10, 2010) — Psychologists have found that George Clooney may be even luckier than previously thought…Research at the University of Abertay Dundee discovered that as women become more financially independent, they want an older, more attractive male partner. Studies have previously found that women place greater emphasis on whether a man can provide for them, while men place more importance on good looks. The new study revealed that as women earn more and become more independent, their tastes actually change. The finding suggests that greater financial independence gives women greater confidence in choosing their partner. Instinctive preferences for...

    WHEN it comes to partners, men often find women’s taste fickle and unfathomable. But ladies may not be entirely to blame. A growing body of research suggests that their preference for certain types of male physiognomy may be swayed by things beyond their conscious control—like prevalence of disease or crime—and in predictable ways. Masculine features—a big jaw, say, or a prominent brow—tend to reflect physical and behavioural traits, such as strength and aggression. They are also closely linked to physiological ones, like virility and a sturdy immune system. The obverse of these desirable characteristics looks less appealing. Aggression is fine...

She seems to make men (and a lot of women) comfortable in a way that's eluded the likes of Hillary Clinton and Nancy Pelosi. Her modus operandi reminds me of that old TV ad for Enjoli perfume, where a sexy blonde slings a big pan while she belts out, "I can bring home the bacon, fry it in a pan, and never make you forget you're a M-A-N!"

    Sluthood wasn't always considered a virtue. Most normal, rational people look at sleeping around as something sad and wrong. It's not healthy, physically or mentally, it can be damaging to a young girl's reputation, and it can also be incredibly dangerous. Women that sleep around oftentimes end up feeling used and regret their choices when they get older and decide to settle down. Other women end up contracting STDs, which may or may not be treatable. For these reasons and more, being a slut is understandably looked down upon -- it can be genuinely harmful. Today's pseudo-feminists, however, have...

    Belinda Luscomb, writing for feminist mouthpiece Time Magazine, exposes the fact that young women make more than young men in virtually all big cities in the United States. The triumphalism so clearly on display in the article shows the feminist claim that all they want is “equality” for the bald-faced lie that it is. No, they want supremacy, and they have demonstrated time and again that they will use the state to achieve it. In fact, it is through government interference that young women have gained the upper hand over men. Not only do public schools favor female learning styles,...

    The Islamic population in the Middle East has been caught up in a new war, but it is its own enemy in the fight over a "fatwa" that authorizes the breastfeeding of adult men. "The fatwa-issuing thugs give orders, pass judgment, and make decisions: love is forbidden; looking [at a man] is a sin; expressions of love are contemptible – [but] as for breastfeeding, that is permissible, permissible, permissible," wrote Nadine Al-Budair, a presenter for the U.S. Arabic-language television station Al-Hurra.

Simply wearing the color red or being bordered by the rosy hue makes a man more attractive and sexually desirable to women, according to a series of studies by researchers at the University of Rochester and other institutions. And women are unaware of this arousing effect. The cherry color's charm ultimately lies in its ability to make men appear more powerful, says lead author Andrew Elliot, professor of psychology at the University...

    Research suggested that females have found the rise of the “more feminine man”, or “metrosexual”, a big turn-off. Women see modesty amonsgt men as a poor character trait that could adversely affect their employability or earnings potential. The study of 132 female and 100 male student volunteers found, however, that men did not view female modesty negatively. The participants viewed footage of 15-minute job interviews of males and female actors delivering similar responses to questions for the position that required social skills.

    The Art of Manliness ^ | July 27 2010 | Brett & Kate McKay
    In reading about the lives of history’s great men, one thing I’ve noticed is that many of them had a place they could go to be alone with their thoughts. Some of these men had a study where they would retreat to think, read, and write. Others had a garage or workshop where they would tinker and experiment. But what all these rooms had in common was their sheer manliness. They were man spaces, places a man could call his own.Below we give you a look inside the man rooms of 14 famous men from history. Within these rooms they...

    Especially in politics it is of the utmost importance to try to look behind the facade: who makes up the team of the presidential candidate? The future president of the United States of America is for a large part dependent on and being fed by his team of advisors and future cabinet members. Webster Tarpley wrote a book on the men and women behind presidential hopeful Barack Obama. He argues that there is more to Obama than his charismatic appearance and that some of his advisors pose a danger to the US and the world in case Obama might be...

    Why do men die first? This is a question that has gone unanswered for centuries, but, now we know. It requires a bit of explanation, first: If you put a woman on a pedestal and try to protect her from the rat race ... you're a male chauvinist. If you stay home and do the housework ... you're a pansy. If you work too hard ... there's never any time for her. If you don't work enough ... you're a good-for-nothing bum. If she has a boring repetitive job with low pay ... this is exploitation. If you have a...

    There is a relentless war being waged against American men that literally spans the entire extent of their lives. From the womb, in which a woman's "right" to abort a male baby for being male is defended but a similar right to abort a female baby for being female is vehemently opposed, to the grave, wherein the disparate impact of old age is ignored despite women living 5.2 years longer than men on the average, men are systematically, structurally and unstintingly under assault. Most men understand this on some level, but like the nice dependable man who can't figure out...

    Am I the only one who has noticed the sort of cultural trend, if you will, to portray men as generally stupid in commercial advertising? Let me give you a few examples: #1. Stanley Steemer – The nationwide carpet cleaning company has a recent commercial advertisement that blatantly makes the male husband-figure appear to behave like a bumbling idiot. The audio in the commercial states, “Kids, pets, teens and husbands – ever wonder how you can keep your house clean? Call today about our $99 special.” The images that accompany the audio include kids jumping on a leather couch, a...

    Maybe guys have a sensitivity gene after all. Men are more stressed out than women by a rocky relationship, according to research from Wake Forest University. While girls have a tougher time coming to terms with a breakup, guys take it harder when the couple is having problems, the study shows. And when the relationship is going well, men get more of a psychological boost.

    A Southern California mother whose two children were reported missing 15 years ago has tracked them down in Florida using Facebook. The children's father, Faustino Utrera, took off with them in 1995 when they were ages 2 and 3, said San Bernardino Deputy District Attorney Kurt Rowley. The mother had found her daughter's Facebook profile after searching for her name on the social networking site in March, Rowley said. An official said Saturday that the now 17-year-old girl and 16-year-old boy have been placed in the custody of the state of Florida. "You can imagine the feelings she's having, not...
