    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...

    A premium footwear brand has come under fire for a viral ad - which links their products to feminism and claims: 'Equal pay is not enough'. The ad, by Danish company Bianco, points out that 'it's more expensive to be a woman than a man' and also features violence against men which has outraged viewers.

    ‘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...
  • Expelled student sues IU for gender discrimination

    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,...

(Photo by Hannah Foslien/Getty Images) Minnesota football players ended their boycott Saturday morning and will begin preparation for the Holiday Bowl on Dec. 27.

    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.

  • The Stanford Rape Case Raises Serious Questions for the Legal Profession

    It is easy to look at these questions and conclude the defense lawyer is a victim-blaming sleaze. Certainly the woman here has good reason to despise him. The rest of us, though, shouldn't be calling for his head. Instead, we should be rethinking American rape law, and the legal profession should be having tough conversations about the competing ethical obligations in sexual violence cases. The questions Turner's lawyer asked were aggressive enough to serve as the art for the BuzzFeed post on the victim's letter. They're there at the top, in red: How old are you? How much do you...

    A mother and her lesbian partner not only engaged in unnatural acts with each other, but apparently had seared their consciences so bad that they engaged in abuse of the mother's two-year-old boy to such an extent that the boy died. Rachel Fee, 31, and Nyomi Fee, 29 were convicted of killing Liam Fee by causing severe blunt force trauma to his little body at a house in Fife, Scotland. That was not all. These two degenerates caused Liam to endure a very short life of pain and abuse, along with his brother. These two women engaged in such...
  • Cheque Your Privilege! ‘Equipay’ App Splits Dinner Bills According to Race and Gender

    02/24/2016 5:38:10 PM PST · by TraditionalMerica · 30 replies
    It’s a huge dilemma for progressives: on the one hand, it’s terribly patriarchal for a man to pay for a woman’s dinner. On the other hand, the gender pay gap of feminist mythology holds that women only make 77 cents for every dollar earned by a man. So isn’t the failure to pay just another contribution to structural sexism? Equipay, a new app for Android and the iPhone has a solution. Developed by San Francisco-based “comedian” Luna Malbroux, the app divides bills between dinner guests according to their race and gender. For example, black women, who allegedly make just 64...

    The UMass Daily Collegian ^ | 11/23/15 | Saee-Nazari
    ...While we call to combat mental illness, we must take the same approach in examining gender and deconstruct what it means to be a man. To be a “man” means to be straight and cisgender because masculinity is constructed to be heteronormative and cisnormative. Any signs of ‘femininity’ or diverging from a man’s gender role is discouraged, often invoking the use of derogatory terms. Men are emasculated for not conforming to our culture’s masculinity through the use of terms that are violently misogynistic, homophobic and transphobic. The violence that is encouraged in masculinity isn’t only physical or verbal, but systematic......

    Watch the trailer for the recent Disney Pixar movie “Inside Out” and you will get a glimpse of Hollywood’s warped ideas about men and women. The star of the scene is a concerned mother who is sensitive to her daughter’s feelings and takes charge in a difficult parenting situation. The butt of the jokes is a clueless father who daydreams about sports, provokes his daughter and creates “disaster” by getting angry instead of getting to the root of his daughter’s distress. Viewed alone, the scene is amusing, especially for fathers who may feel like they’re watching a home movie instead...

    Writing online, author Elisa Gabbert answered one of her reader's questions about whether he should stop writing because of his "privilege" of being white and male. An anonymous reader asked Gabbert: "I am a white, male poet—a white, male poet who is aware of his privilege and sensitive to inequalities facing women, POC, and LGBTQ individuals in and out of the writing community—but despite this awareness and sensitivity, I am still white and still male. Sometimes I feel like the time to write from my experience has passed, that the need for poems from a white, male perspective just isn’t...

    I mean American women are about to realize American men were the best they ever had it. As I say in the book, even continental Europeans can’t compete. In de Tocqueville, writing about America, he commented on how women are treated with such respect and honor, and no crime is visited with greater severity of sanction then rape in this new country of America — contrasting America’s treatment of rape so severely unfavorable with that in France. Meanwhile, I mean part of the reason I concentrated on it is they’re just kind of arresting, keep you up all night stories...
