  • Psychologist: Colleges foster environments ‘actively hostile’ toward men

    The Daily Caller ^ | January 29, 2014 | Katie McHugh
    The college environment is “actively hostile towards men,” psychologist and author Dr. Helen Smith explained in a Tuesday interview with Forbes. Smith has authored the book “Men on Strike: Why Men Are Boycotting Marriage, Fatherhood, and The American Dream — And Why It Matters,” and discussed the effect that overreaching feminism has on men with reporter Jerry Bowyer. Bower stated that groups who see themselves as oppressed since the 19th century have blazed past a goal of equality to exact “comeuppance” on their oppressors, and American men bear the brunt of this attack. Smith agreed, recalling how she was taken...

    In a recent Wall Street Journal interview, Paglia, now 66, demonstrated that she has not strayed from her role as the self-described “notorious Amazon feminist” who is quick to lambaste the movement and its orthodoxy. Weiss observed, however, that the topic that gets the greatest rise out of Paglia is how attempts to dismiss the biological differences between men and women have influenced the collapse of Western civilization. The diminished status of military service is only the start of the decline of the culture, according to Paglia. "The entire elite class now, in finance, in politics and so on, none...
  • School Has Become Too Hostile to Boys ("Tug of peace"?)

    08/20/2013 2:10:38 AM PDT · by TigerClaws · 22 replies
    As school begins in the coming weeks, parents of boys should ask themselves a question: Is my son really welcome? A flurry of incidents last spring suggests that the answer is no. In May, Christopher Marshall, age 7, was suspended from his Virginia school for picking up a pencil and using it to “shoot” a “bad guy” — his friend, who was also suspended. A few months earlier, Josh Welch, also 7, was sent home from his Maryland school for nibbling off the corners of a strawberry Pop-Tart to shape it into a gun. At about the same time, Colorado’s...

    A pervasive anti-boy culture is wrecking our nation’s very future. As I look at my 5-year old son, I hope that I am helping to mold a young man who lives his life with integrity and self-reliance, understanding the value of hard work and good manners and the true self-esteem that only these things can create within a productive life. I think my wife and I are doing well, being conscious of these things, but as I look around us, what is happening — what has happened — to a generation of boys and young men in America is saddening...

    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 aren’t just becoming men’s equals. It’s increasingly clear that “mankind” itself is a gross misnomer: an uninterrupted, intimate and essential maternal connection defines our species....
  • Gross… Code Pink to Send Photos of Their Vaginas to RNC Convention

    The radical anti-American Code Pink group is encouraging their members to send snapshots of their vaginas to the RNC Convention in Tampa, Florida. LifeNews reported: Taking the silly “War on Women” rhetoric to another disgusting level, the pro-abortion feminists at CodePink have come up with a new campaign: Send your vaginas to the Republican convention. Upset that Republicans and presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney support religious freedom for groups opposing the Obama HHS mandate and wants to end taxpayer funding for the Planned Parenthood abortion business, CodePink thinks it has a great idea on how to respond. The “women’s group”...

    A longtime special agent in the Department of Homeland Security has filed a salacious discrimination suit, saying he was shoved aside in favor of a woman who enjoyed "a long-standing relationship" with DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano -- who the suit claims presided over a female "frathouse"-style department that routinely humiliated male staffers.

    It was a 1992 Barbie doll who accurately reminded us, “Math class is tough!” So hard that even a man with two Ivy League degrees, President Obama, is stumbling over the basics. The president seems to think that women can hold half the places in some fields of study — and a majority in the rest.

    The topic of women in combat has always been a touchy one. Many feel that while women should be allowed in the military, they do not belong in jobs that place them on the front line. 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 men’s reproductive health. Turner’s bill joins a trend of female lawmakers submitting bills regulating men’s health. Turner said if state policymakers want to legislate women’s health choices through...
  • College May Be Dangerous for Men

    09/13/2011 6:31:16 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 16 replies ^ | September 13, 2011 | Phyllis Schalfly
    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...

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 couple's dispute over $35,000 ring may change state law

    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 boy’s...

    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...
