  • Failed before It Began: The Great Sexual Harassment Revolution

    American Thinker ^ | Jan 02, 2017 | J.R. Dunn
    The great Sexual Harassment Panic of 2017 is at last dying down. We can safely look at a screen without being overwhelmed by stories in which yet another loser – or more than one – has been outed for mistreating or exploiting women. Resignations have been myriad, careers have been destroyed, and one suicide has occurred. We're assured that the entire episode has been a watershed, that Things Have Changed permanently. It's an earthquake, says Meryl Streep. Others hail "a new socio-sexual revolution." But what exactly has changed? Earthquakes are noted for massive and universal destruction, revolutions for the guillotine...
  • Exclusive: Prominent lawyer sought donor cash for two Trump accusers

    well-known women’s rights lawyer sought to arrange compensation from donors and tabloid media outlets for women who made or considered making sexual misconduct allegations against Donald Trump during the final months of the 2016 election, according to documents and interviews. California lawyer Lisa Bloom’s efforts included offering to sell alleged victims’ stories to TV outlets in return for a commission for herself, arranging a donor to pay off one Trump accuser’s mortgage and attempting to secure a six-figure payment for another woman who ultimately declined to come forward after being offered as much as $750,000, the clients told The Hill....
  • Male students 'uncomfortable' on Texas campuses, education official says

    Outnumbered male college students in Texas have created a sharp gender gap in statewide completion rates – and, according to the state’s higher education commissioner, a campus cultural problem for men. “We’re getting to the point where males feel uncomfortable on some college campuses,” said Raymund Paredes, who leads Texas’ higher education coordinating board. Paredes spoke Thursday at the University of Houston System’s board meeting to address progress toward broader statewide goals of having 60 percent of young adults in Texas earn a post-secondary degree or certificate by 2030. He identified several target populations that are lagging in achieving those...

    Many have talked about the year book, but has anyone else noticed how the area I circled with Moore's last name and is blue ink. The rest is in black ink. Now if you look at it, you can see clearly that someone named Roy signed her year book originally. Roy Moore's last name and all were added later by someone else to make it look like he signed it. Also, it was over 40 years ago since I have been in school, but the way they put out year books has not changed much. Other than it is...

    While several Nasa missions have involved mixed crews, a secret report by the space agency suggests that missions to Mars could be all-female. Speaking at a conference today, British astronaut, Helen Sharman, claimed that Nasa has filed a report that warns that male and female astronauts could get frisky during the one and a half year journey to the red planet. The report claims that all-female crews would be the best option, as women work better as a team, and are less likely than men to fight over who is the leader. Ms Sharman has never seen the report herself,...
  • Obama-era guidance on campus sexual assault gets scrapped

    The Trump administration on Friday scrapped Obama-era guidance on investigating campus sexual assault, replacing it with new instructions that allow universities to require higher standards of evidence when handling complaints. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos has said that President Barack Obama’s policy had been unfairly skewed against those accused of assault and had “weaponized” the Education Department to “work against schools and against students.” The change is the latest in Trump’s broader effort to roll back Obama policies. Women’s rights groups slammed Friday’s decision, saying it will discourage students from reporting assault. The guidance released in 2011 and then updated in...

    Kate Millett, whose 1970 book, “Sexual Politics,” made her, as one writer put it, “the principal theoretician of the women’s liberation movement,” and who went on to be a leading voice on human rights, mental health issues and more, died on Wednesday in Paris. She was 82. Her spouse, Sophie Keir, said the cause was cardiac arrest. Living in New York City, they had been going to Paris every year to celebrate their birthdays, she said. Ms. Millett was in her mid-30s and a generally unknown sculptor when her doctoral dissertation at Columbia University, “Sexual Politics,” was published by Doubleday...

    International Business Times ^ | 3/12 | Jen Offord
    A man, believed to be a Wall Street banker, faced an angry backlash this week after he was photographed appearing to "hump" a statue of a young girl installed in the famous banking district. The incident took place the day after International Women's Day on Wednesday, not long after the statue's installation. The picture was shared on Facebook by an eyewitness who said the unidentified man stood behind the new installation and began simulating sexual intercourse with the statue. Alexis Kaloyanides, who posted the picture, described the man as the reason the world needed feminism.

    Two college football players who were suspended from their team last year and saw their scholarships revoked after rape accusations have been cleared by police after authorities say their accuser recanted her story. Nikki Yovino, 18, of South Setauket, NY, has been charged with second-degree falsely reporting an incident and tampering with or fabricating physical evidence in connection to an incident at a Sacred Heart University football party in October, the Connecticut Post reports. When pressed about inconsistencies in her original statement, Yovino admitted that she made up the rape allegations against the two football players in hopes of gaining...

    ‘Goal is to create a sense of security in vulnerability …’ The University of Wisconsin-Madison is currently taking applications for its “Men’s Project,” a six-week program that aims to counter the alleged harmful effects of society’s masculinity paradigms and pressures and empower participants to promote “gender equity.” “Men’s Project creates a space for critical self-reflection and dialogue about what it means to be a man and how masculinity impacts us and those around us,” organizers state in promoting the effort. “The experience focuses on the examination of societal images, expectations, and messages around masculinity to empower men to better understand...

    A former IUPD cadet and IU student, expelled for violating the University’s consent policy, is suing IU for gender discrimination. Aaron Farrer, 21, alleges that the University’s policies for sexual assault investigations unfairly favor women and fail to protect the accused, according to court documents. “IU violated Title IX by creating a gender biased, hostile environment against males, like Farrer, based in part on IU’s pattern and practice of disciplining male students who accept physical contact initiated by female students, but failing to discipline female students who engage in the same conduct,” Farrer’s attorneys wrote in the complaint.

    By Nahema Marchal | 2:58 pm, December 29, 2016 When the issue of “fake news” came to prominence at the end of this year’s election cycle, traditional media outlets were the firsts to engage in relentless finger-pointing. Journalists everywhere deplored the spread of misleading, lazily reported and, in some cases, totally fabricated stories that had been facilitated by social media. That’d be ignoring — of course — that in a competitive media climate where virality and accuracy go head-to-head, editors will often go for a catchier headline, at the expense of factual accuracy. And as one writer at HEqual noted,...

    College Fix ^ | NOVEMBER 2, 2016 | WILLIAM NARDI
    Universities across the nation are taking steps to actively purge male students of what’s been labeled “toxic masculinity.” Examples abound of campuses hosting training sessions, group meetings, lectures and other programs to effectively cleanse what many campus leaders and left-leaning scholars contend is an unhealthy masculinity in young men today. On campus, toxic masculinity is often blamed for sexual violence, body shaming, a “hyper-masculinized sporting culture,” acts of domestic terrorism and much more. For example, a class at Dartmouth College this semester, “The Orlando Syllabus,” identifies so-called toxic masculinity as playing a role in the mass murder spree at a...

    Here is the link to Hillary Clinton's infamous tweet: https://twitter.com/HillaryClinton/status/668597149291184128 "Every survivor of sexual assault deserves to be heard, believed, and supported." Thankfully, Kellyanne Conway didn't forget, and clearly neither did the next President of the United States, Donald J. Trump. I think Broaddrick and Jones have merit, and even Vox, a liberal mouthpiece, thinks so too: http://www.vox.com/2016/10/9/13221340/juanita-broaddrick-hillary-clinton-rape

    Washington Post ^ | Fred Farbash
    A federal judge has reinstated a Brown University student after finding that the Ivy League school in Providence, R.I., improperly judged him responsible for sexual misconduct. The case was yet another example of the stresses confronted by colleges and universities, whose methods of adjudicating such cases have increasingly come under heavy fire for being too aggressive toward the accused, even as they are being pressured for not being aggressive enough. Indeed, the Brown case underscored how that tension has spread: It included an organized campaign by students supportive of the woman who brought the charge to pressure the judge into...
  • A male professor said this women-only study lounge is sexist and illegal. The school shut it down.

    Washington Post ^ | Danielle Paquette
    The battle over Michigan State University’s women-only lounge began with a rival school’s male professor. Mark Perry, who teaches economics at the University of Michigan’s Flint campus, had stumbled upon a news story about the 91-year-old room in MSU’s sprawling student union. “They’d written about what a great space this is for women,” Perry said. “They can go in and take a nap and not be worried about being bothered.” He figured it couldn’t be legal. Banning men from a taxpayer-funded study area, Perry thought, could violate Title IX, a federal law meant to protect gender equality on college campuses....

    The University of Virginia (right), the location of the infamously fabricated gang-rape story printed in Rolling Stone last year, has found itself in the spotlight again thanks to another allegation of sexual assault - but this time the events surrounding the alleged rape are all too real. Sophomore volleyball player Haley Lind (left) believes she was raped at a UVA house party on August 22, 2015. The freshman athlete she was with swears it was all consensual. Both have been left distraught. And the UVA says there's just not enough evidence to do anything about it, The Washington Post reported.
