  • Time Magazine: Men Who Don’t Sit and Cross their Legs are “Manifestation of Patriarchal Privilege”

    Time Magazine has declared that men who are able to sit and not cross their legs are a “manifestation of patriarchal privilege.” In an article called, “‘Man Spreaders,’ There’s No Excuse for Not Closing Your Legs on the Subway,” Time’s Etiquette section slammed men who do not sit with their legs together. But more than it being impolite and against etiquette, there is a much bigger problem with men like this: they are proliferating “the patriarchy.” The article explains that men sitting with their legs apart “is the most visual manifestation of patriarchal privilege and that is why it is...

    MILWAUKEE, Wis. — A 26-year-old Wisconsin woman has been charged with one count of physical abuse of a child — her own 14-month-old son. The criminal complaint indicates that Jenna Schumacher brought her son to Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin on November 5th. The child was admitted for chronic ear bleeding and perforated eardrums. Doctors indicated there was “no medical cause” for the ear injuries — and because of that, they were concerned this may be an abuse situation.

    Matt Taylor, who's a great scientist and seems to also be a pretty cool dude, gave a teary, heartfelt apology for his choice of attire on the day of Rosetta's probe landing. "I made a big mistake, and I offended many people," Taylor said at Friday's media briefing, his voice trembling, "and I'm very sorry about this." With that, the briefing moved onto the science (as it should -- Philae's days are numbered, and we want to find out as much as we can from the little probe that could). Taylor seemed to have trouble speaking for a few minutes,...

    FULL TITLE: Father charged with sodomizing and abusing his nine-year-old son is found hanged in his jail cell A man that had been accused of committing numerous sex crimes against his nine-year-old son allegedly killed himself this week. Defense attorney Adam Bollaert told Al.com that on Monday evening his client Carl Herold was found hanged inside a cell at Clay County jail. At the time of his death, Herold had been in the middle of an extradition for federal child pornography charges in New York state, the website reported. Last year, authorities arrested Bollaert and his partner Charles Dunnavant in...

    In a new campaign to reportedly raise awareness of "privilege," the University of San Francisco is handing out fliers telling anyone who is white, straight, Christian, or "able-bodied" that they are privileged and need to "check their privilege." The campaign was put together by three professors at the college and Student Life. The fliers also claim that if you believe that your gender identity and biological gender are the same (that is, if you consider yourself a male and you are biologically male), you are privileged as well. No matter who you are, no matter what your situation in life,...

    The feminist movement is selling something, but it isn’t feminism. In FCKH8.com’s latest video, “Potty-Mouthed Princesses Drop F-Bombs for Feminism,” little girls between 6 and 13 years-old dressed up as pink princesses to say f*ck in the name of feminism. One girl questioned, “What is more offensive? A little girl saying f*ck or the f*cking on equal and sexist way society treats girls and women?” In response, the feminist liberal media latched onto the video, calling it “brilliant,” “empowering” and “adorable.” During the short ad, the girls addressed – or, rather said ”f*ck” to – pay inequality (“I shouldn’t need...

    The obesity epidemic in men could be fueled by the female sex hormone estrogen, scientists claim. Experts believe the hormone could also be causing the well-documented drop in sperm count among Western men. They said men in affluent countries are becoming “feminized” as they come into contact with products containing the female sex hormone. Compounds found in some plastic items, including drain pipes, and soy food products can mimic the effects of estrogen, scientists said. Secreted by the ovaries in premenstrual women, estrogen is known to cause weight gain, inhibiting the thyroid gland and affecting other areas of the brain....

    The abortion movement could also be called the hypocrisy movement. They call themselves feminist, yet are thoroughly anti-woman. They say women have a right to abortion, but deny the right to LIFE. They encourage men to speak up if they advocate abortion, but demand that they shut up if they are Pro-Life. “You don’t have a uterus!” they shout, suggesting that an absence of female reproductive organs disqualifies men from making judgments of right and wrong. But this anatomical difference is no problem – in fact, it is a great boon – when men want to express their belief in...

    Who runs the world? In these six societies: Girls. By standard definition, a matriarchy is a “family, group or state governed by a matriarch (a woman who is head of a family or tribe).” Anthropologists and feminists have since created more specific classifications for female societies, including the matrilineal system. Matrilineality refers not only to tracing one’s lineage through maternal ancestry, it can also refer to a civil system in which one inherits property through the female line. While the legendary Amazons (probably the most widely known matriarchy) are relegated to mythology, there are a handful of female-led societies...

And as we celebrate the film today, on its fiftieth anniversary, let’s not forget its feminist perspective.

    Did alimony kill Robin Williams? At least in part it sure did. Paying out over $30 million to ex-wives who were allowed to attach themselves to Williams’ bank account like comatose patients on feeding tubes would be enough to make Gandhi angry and depressed. While states are finally, gradually catching up to the modern age in terms of alimony (now they call it “maintenance” — as in “high maintenance”) the practice of men paying women because they once were married is not just primitive but, yes, sexist. Yeah, go ahead, call me anti-feminist, call me whatever you want, but the...

Hollywood makes fewer smaller-scale releases for multiplex audiences, and the conventional wisdom is that the expensive films need white male leads to maximize worldwide box office potential.  We all saw as Angelina Jolie’s Maleficent ended up becoming one of the biggest grossing films of the year domestically ($234 million) and worldwide ($717m) following a year when the biggest film in America (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire) and worldwide (Frozen) were female-centric.

From Breitbart News: SB 967, amended last week by state Sen.

    What’s in a name? Apparently, when it comes to hurricanes, a lot. A recent study conducted by researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign found that, for Atlantic Coast hurricanes in the U.S., storms with feminine names lead to more deaths than those with masculine names. The best explanation for this, according to the Economist, is that people do not take hurricanes with women’s names as seriously as storms with men’s names. The researchers actually tested this theory — and produced supporting results. They picked five male and five female names from the list to be used for this...

Commentators quickly put this incident into what they saw as its proper context. His rampage, they argued, could be tied to the proliferation of a very modern, virulent form of internet-fueled misogyny — the men’s rights movement, the pickup artist community (and the community...

This would include more than 200,000 jobs that make up the core of the ground-level combat force in the Army and the Marine Corps. Opponents of women in combat argue, rightly in my opinion, that the military's physical standards must not be compromised to expand access because our military's fighting effectiveness is at stake.

Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., and Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., on legislative proposals that...

Neighbors witnessed the treatment and alerted authorities. The two women, from Douglasville, Georgia, appeared in...

    A new study by Albright College finds women can more easily make their voices sound attractive. According to a new study by Albright college, men are incapable of intentionally making their voices sound sexy. 20 women and 20 men tried to make their voices sound sexy. Another 40 people judged whether they achieved that goal. And found that the women easily outperformed the men. Why is it so difficult for men? I mean, even a cartoon, Jessica rabbit, can do it. Researchers know, that to men, an attractive voice is often linked to physical appeal. While men learn that what...

    For decades we have devoted ample space to the deconstruction of women’s studies only to find that there is something even more inane being taught on American campuses—men’s studies. This year, the American Men’s Studies Association (AMSA) held its annual convention in Tacoma, Washington. AMSA is dedicated to “advancing the critical study of men and masculinities.” “Even though the association has been around for 22 years, and even though men’s studies dates back to at least the 1970s, outsiders still tend to greet it with derision and disbelief,” Tom Bartlett writes in The Chronicle of Higher Education. Imagine. “Men’s studies...

    Boys are being put off reading because of the influence women have on children’s literature, says an award-winning children’s author. Jonathan Emmett warned that children’s books were too girly because of the influence of mostly female panels of editors, publishers, reviewers and judges. One publishing company’s research suggested women bought 95 percent of picture books for children, he added. The writer believes boys are being starved of what they enjoy in books, such as swashbuckling pirates, battles, or technical details about spaceships, and so are driven to more action-packed video games instead. …

    The CBC’s Jian Ghomeshi is the most amiable, open-minded guy in the world, with a good sense of humour to boot. The perfect radio host. His weekly show, Q, frequently provides proof of his willingness to explore both sides of a gamut of issues in the classic liberal tradition. Unfortunately, amongst doctrinaire feminists, amiability, intellectual curiosity and even (especially?) a sense of humour don’t cut it when their pet theories fall into Q’s crosshairs. Ghomeshi had the temerity on Monday to host a debate about the veracity of “rape culture,” between Lise Gotell, chair of Women’s and Gender Studies at...

    Nobody should ever suggest that leadership and assertiveness are mutually exclusive; all sensible people must agree that in order to lead, someone must give directions, and when the time comes for it, that those directions must be given strongly. A great leader, like Germanicus Caesar, knows that at certain times even mutinous soldiers must be courted, and that at others they must be executed, and that only wisdom can discern which is more appropriate. But I would never agree with Cheryl Sandberg that we should teach all bossy little girls not that they’re bossy, but that they’re natural leaders. I’ve...
