  • The Human Costs of the World Hugh Hefner Created

    Sometimes it’s appropriate to speak ill of the dead. Playboy founder Hugh Hefner died Wednesday, aged 91. But his work of mainstreaming porn will likely live on—and continue to hurt men and women—for many years to come. Playboy helped usher in an era of porn addiction, decreased happiness, and strained relationships between men and women. Porn did of course exist before Hefner, and the internet—a technological innovation Hefner had nothing to do with—greatly accelerated the use of porn. But what Hefner did was to bring porn out of the shadows, to make it something that could be discussed openly and...

    Spend a little time with single women in their early to mid-30s, and you'll be grateful you're not one of them. The relationship scene is even more dismal today than when I was their age. All the women want serious relationships that lead to marriage, but many of the men they meet do not. All too often a woman moves in with some guy, hoping they're on the road to somewhere. Two years later, he tells her he's not ready for marriage and kids just yet. Splat.But wait. Hasn't online dating made the mating market easier? Yes – for men....

    CENTRALIA— A couples therapy scheme gone very wrong is reportedly to blame in the case of two Centralia women glued together by the pinky finger using an unknown epoxy and a copper pipe, according to the Centralia Police Department. “They haven’t been able to feel their fingers for three days.” said Det. Patty Finch, of the Centralia Police Department. According to the Centralia Police Department, Rachel A. Deckert, 27, attempted to turn herself in at 3:54 p.m. Monday at the Lewis County Jail on an outstanding misdemeanor warrant for a driving under the influence case. She was served with the...

Headline: “Clinical Psychologist: Women ‘Hate’ Harmless Men.” You know, every so often, folks, these stories cross our proverbial desk here. Every six months or so you get a story about male-female relationships of the day and how they’ve changed, you know, what men look for in women today versus 20 years ago, 30 years ago, and vice versa.

    It’s the one drink you don’t want your new date to order during your first outing. Some Chicago bars are using a new method to help protect women’s safety. CBS 2’s Audrina Bigos shows us a secret code system that triggers a silent alarm if women feel they’re in danger. Inside New Line Tavern in the West Loop, Marisa Kersten noticed a sign in the ladies’ room. It tells women how they can get assistance from the staff in event a first date implodes or is turning scary. They need to repeat some secret codes at the bar. Staff member...

    A first draft of the "tree of life" for the roughly 2.3 million named species of animals, plants, fungi and microbes -- from platypuses to puffballs -- has been released. A collaborative effort among eleven institutions, the tree depicts the relationships among living things as they diverged from one another over time, tracing back to the beginning of life on Earth more than 3.5 billion years ago. Tens of thousands of smaller trees have been published over the years for select branches of the tree of life -- some containing upwards of 100,000 species -- but this is the first...
  • Dating rule: Men don’t trust hot women but women do

    05/10/2015 3:40:00 PM PDT · by BenLurkin · 32 replies
    During a recent study, researchers found that women with a glam look although attract men more easily, men usually don’t trust them. However, the findings of the study are suggesting that women find well-groomed men more reliable. These findings have made the already complicated world of online dating even more complicated. Those who think that uploading their hottest picture is the best way of getting suitable dating partners should take the above findings into consideration; this is because by looking too hot you might make people feel that you are “too hot to trust”. The said study was conducted for...

    The Atlanta Black Star ^ | March 15, 2015 | Taylor Gordon
    From a very young age, Black men are typically given a traditional set of roles they are expected to take on in a relationship. Perhaps two of the most emphasized of these roles are the protector and the provider. Unfortunately, the sheer necessity of the Black Lives Matter movement is a reminder that it can be increasingly difficult for Black men today to fulfill these roles in the traditional sense. How can one be a provider for his partner and family when he is suddenly placed in a position where it has become difficult to even protect himself? How can...

    Harvard University has instituted a total ban on professors having sex with undergraduate students, strengthening language it said didn’t reflect its expectations on appropriate relationships between faculty members and students. Harvard said in a statement released Thursday the change came as part of a formal review of its policy on Title IX, the federal civil rights law prohibiting sex discrimination in education. The Faculty of Arts and Sciences Committee on Sexual Misconduct Policy and Procedures determined the university’s language on “relationships of unequal status” was not strong enough. …

    Science says lasting relationships come down to—you guessed it -- KINDNESS and GENEROSITY. Every day in June, the most popular wedding month of the year, about 13,000 American couples will say “I do,” committing to a lifelong relationship that will be full of friendship, joy, and love that will carry them forward to their final days on this earth. Except, of course, it doesn’t work out that way for most people. The majority of marriages fail, either ending in divorce and separation or devolving into bitterness and dysfunction. Of all the people who get married, only three in ten remain...

    One interesting aspect of undergoing a dramatic conversion as an adult is that it’s given me the opportunity to be deeply immersed in two rather different cultures. Up until my mid-20s, I was very much a part of post-Christian secular culture. Then my husband and I changed our religious beliefs, and though we’re still in touch with many of our old friends, we’ve increasingly found ourselves in social circles where most people are religious. In general, there are plenty of similarities between our old and new groups of friends. Both consist of smart, nice folks who are curious about the...

    Complaints of double charges and frequent crashes from users of Apple’s new electronic payment system are marring the launch of the company’s newest service offering. The double-charge bug seemed to be affecting Bank of America customers using their Visa credit cards for Apple Pay. The system, which launched earlier this week, also seems to be befuddling cashiers who might have failed to stay up to date on Apple’s latest innovations. Since the transaction requires only that users hold their iPhones close to a near field communication (NFC) reader while pressing their thumb on the handset’s TouchID sensor, many clerks are...

    "Passion of the Christ" actor Jim Caviezel has spoken out against abortion in a recent speech, calling it a "great sin" in America. He also reached out with a message of forgiveness to those who have gone through with the practice. "Many people are a part of this great sin in this country. These are all God's children and he brings them home. Now He wants to bring you home. Do you think your friend has more grace than God? Does your friend have more love than the Creator? It can never be. God forgives you and now He needs...

    “We are loving, committed and faithful couples just like anyone else.” If you’ve paid the slightest bit of attention to the same-sex marriage debate, you’ve heard this very statement in some iteration. It’s not true by some important measures though. 1. Same-sex male couples are dramatically more likely to be unfaithful than heterosexual couples. 2. Committed lesbian relationships are more likely to break up than both male-male and opposite-sex couples, by dramatic margins. Those are two very important differences, unarguably judging the “we’re no different” dogma incorrect. What support is there for these stark differences? First, it should be noted...

    Conservative journalist and author Michelle Malkin is speaking out in support of Tamera Mowry, the former child star who said last week that she was subjected to hurtful racism online because she has a white husband. Mowry, who starred along with her identical twin on the '90s sitcom "Sister, Sister," is biracial and married Fox News correspondent Adam Housley in 2011. Speaking Friday on an episode of the OWN network's "Oprah: Where Are They Now?" the 35-year-old said she was shocked by some of the comments she read about her relationship online. "I get called 'white man's whore,'" she said...
