  • 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 Hollywoods warped ideas about men and women. The star of the scene is a concerned mother who is sensitive to her daughters 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 daughters distress. Viewed alone, the scene is amusing, especially for fathers who may feel like theyre watching a home movie instead...

Today, Ms. Swift believes that feminism is probably the most important" thing that women can get involved with. According to the young star, inequality is difficult to overcome because misogyny is ingrained in people from the time they are born." She continued, So to...

    Amy Murphy, the dean of students at Texas Tech, believes that giving students of her college the rights that they have access to has a chilling effect on peoples ability to accuse others of assault. Murphy told Texas Techs college paper that, as a part of the Student Code of Conduct, students at the university do not have the right to confront their accuser. More than that, they cannot have a representative ask questions of the accuser at all, and cross-examination is simply not allowed. According to Murphy, this process is a learning experience that will be conducted in the...

Scott spent one night in jail in both 2011 and 2012, again because he owed...

    Why was Walter Scott running away from a policeman who tried to stop him for a broken taillight? The media are trying to make a South Carolina policeman's killing of a black man, Walter Scott, another sensational case of racism, but the media have missed the point of the tragedy. The problem wasn't racism, or even dangerous driving or stolen property. It was caused by the obnoxious anti-father rulings of the family courts and Scott's fear that he would be returned to debtor's prison. Scott had already been jailed three times for failure to pay child support, and he didn't...

    If two people are equally unable to give consent, but have sex anyway, should either be charged with a crime? It's a question that many college administrators wrestle with when drugs and alcohol are factors in sexual assault disputes. The verdict often seems to be that male students are uniquely responsible for ascertaining that their sexual partners are in a state of mind to consent, even when the female is the initiator and both are intoxicated.

    Men who open doors for women are as guilty of sexism as those who are rude to them, according to a new study. Psychologists found that a friendly or chivalrous attitude can mask chauvinistic and patronizing views because the men see females as weak creatures in need of their protection. They warned that this benevolent sexism was harder to spot than the hostile version borne out of an open antipathy. Jin Goh, a psychologist from Northeastern University, Boston, in the U.S., said: While many people are sensitive to sexist verbal offences, they may not readily associate sexism with warmth and...

    The "No More" TV advertisement blitz against domestic violence by professional athletes is obnoxious and reeks of political correctness.

But there is another reason to be opposed to this clearly political pressure campaign.

    MAMMALS are named after their defining characteristic, the glands capable of sustaining a life for years after birth glands that are functional only in the female. And yet while the term mammal is based on an objective analysis of shared traits, the genus name for human beings, Homo, reflects an 18th-century masculine bias in science. That bias, however, is becoming harder to sustain, as men become less relevant to both reproduction and parenting. Women arent just becoming mens equals. Its increasingly clear that mankind itself is a gross misnomer: an uninterrupted, intimate and essential maternal connection defines our species....

Others believe that women are just as capable as men and should be given the opportunity to take on any role within the military.

    COLUMBUS Before getting a prescription for Viagra or other erectile dysfunction drugs, men would have to see a sex therapist, receive a cardiac stress test and get a notarized affidavit signed by a sexual partner affirming impotency, if state Sen. Nina Turner has her way. The Cleveland Democrat introduced Senate Bill 307 this week. A critic of efforts to restrict abortion and contraception for women, Turner says she is concerned about mens reproductive health. Turners bill joins a trend of female lawmakers submitting bills regulating mens health. Turner said if state policymakers want to legislate womens health choices through...

    College is a dangerous place for men. They are not only a minority, but they are victimized by discriminatory and unconstitutional anti-male rules. In another striking proof that the Obama administration is totally manipulated by feminists, the Department of Education's Office for Civil Rights sent out a 19-page "DCL" (Dear Colleague Letter) to colleges and universities that should make men fear attending college at all. The letter adopts the feminist theory that in all sexual controversies or accusations, the man is guilty unless he proves himself innocent. This DCL carries the force of law, since it purports to be an...

    Mara Hvistendahl is worried about girls. Not in any political, moral or cultural sense but as an existential matter. She is right to be. In China, India and numerous other countries (both developing and developed), there are many more men than women, the result of systematic campaigns against baby girls. In "Unnatural Selection," Ms. Hvistendahl reports on this gender imbalance: what it is, how it came to be and what it means for the future. In nature, 105 boys are born for every 100 girls. This ratio is biologically ironclad. Between 104 and 106 is the normal range, and that's...

    Schools told to encourage boys to play netball and dance to 'balance gender'By BETH HALE - More by this author Last updated at 17:37pm on 27th December 2007Schools have been told to encourage boys to play netball and take dancing lessons in a bid to promote "gender equality". The move which sees boys moving on to the traditionally female netball court is part of a Government drive to ensure that school children are more 'gender balanced'. Every local authority in the country had to publish a "gender equality scheme" earlier this year to meet new anti-discrimination legislation. Scroll...

    The Violence Against Women Act signed by President Bush on Jan. 5 contains an almost unnoticed attachment. Subtitle D, also known as the International Marriage Broker Regulation Act of 2005 (IMBA), will become law when VAWA is enacted. The IMBA is an ostensibly noble measure with a surprising and ominous twist. The scant attention directed toward the IMBA has been positive. A headline in Washington State's The Daily Herald announced, "Mail-order brides gain protection" with the subtitle "The mother of a murdered immigrant hopes that pending federal legislation will keep foreign brides from abuse, neglect and slavery." The "murdered immigrant"...

    PHILADELPHIA (AP) - If the wedding is off, the engagement ring must be returned, Pennsylvania state law states but a broken engagement and ensuing legal battle over a $35,000 ring may change that. Mario Mele, 64, a former county commissioner who owns a dental insurance agency, met Janet Grace, 46, of Philadelphia, a construction manager, in December 2004. Last spring, he gave her a 2 1/2-carat, princess-cut diamond set in hand-crafted platinum. Less than two months later, he asked for it back. Grace, who had designed the ring, refused, sold the diamond and replaced it in the setting with a...

    8-Year-Old Charged For Sexual Conduct With Sitter (KUTV) SALT LAKE CITY, Utah A mother is upset after a 14-year-old babysitter engaged in sexual conduct with her eight-year-old boy, and the eight-year-old was charged with lewd conduct. Prosecutors have since dropped the charges against the boy, but his mother is still concerned. The sexual conduct occurred during a game of truth or dare while the boy was being watched by the babysitter. Prosecutors say that, while the babysitter initiated the contact, the young boy was a willing participant. She dared my son to touch her breasts, says Michelle Grosbeck, the boys...

    Child-support case might proceed without deployed dad Friday, September 12, 2003 Encarnacion Pyle THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH When Everett Fields Jr. was deployed to Kuwait last month, he never dreamed that a Franklin County magistrate would move ahead with a child-support case while he was serving his country. But Magistrate Susan House is threatening to do just that. House reluctantly postponed a hearing involving the Army reservist last week, saying that he has a right to a lawyer but not to be present at the proceedings. "Many times that would mean continuing a case over and over again," House said...
