  • Bravo! Female Biology Professor Calls out “Toxic Femininity” in Spectacular Essay

    One of my biggest beefs with “toxic masculinity” is not that some men use their masculinity in toxic ways. You’d be hard pressed to find a woman who hasn’t dealt with a man who didn’t display toxic masculinity. A new, more educated sounding term which has seemingly replaced what we used to refer to as being an asshole, dick, douche, creep, or pervert. My main issue with toxic masculinity has always been the assumption only masculinity could be toxic. That only women could be victims, only men could be predators. When, as a woman (note that byline) I’ve been witness...
  • Women Are Buying Up Plan B Because They're Terrified of the Future Supreme Court

    Within hours of Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy’s retirement announcement last month, Emily Hauser was standing at a drugstore counter asking a pharmacist for two packages of Plan B. At age 53, she didn’t need the emergency contraception pills — in fact, she wasn’t sure who would, or when. But Hauser bought them anyway. A mother of two, she’s worried her teenagers won’t be able to access Plan B if Roe v. Wade, the decision that protects a woman’s right to abortion, gets overturned after Kennedy leaves the Supreme Court. It’s a big fear for Hauser, though she feels a...
  • Trump and women: The big disconnect in American politics

    The disconnect between President Trump and female voters is serious and not getting better. That’s a potentially big problem for Republicans in the November elections — but only if the women opposed to the president turn out to vote. Trump’s election divided an already fractured country, deepening the red-blue chasm that has become the defining feature of today’s politics. But the revulsion among many women toward the president adds another layer to the politics of discontent. Trump is doing nothing to mitigate the problem. Just the opposite. A man accused by multiple women of sexual misbehavior, he seems to take...

    **SNIP** While politicians consider whether or not they’d support a nominee who opposes the 1973 decision that legalized abortion, some women have a strategy to drum up support for a woman’s right to choose: the #Lysistrata2018 movement. Named after Aristophanes’s ancient Greek comedy Lysistrata, in which women refuse to sleep with their warring husbands until they agree to a truce, the movement is the brainchild of author and political journalist Jennifer Wright. In a tweet posted on Monday, Wright suggested that single women stop dating and having sex with men expressing anti-abortion views. Women could indicate their stance by adding...

    During a Wednesday MSNBC panel about who Trump will choose to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy, Roberts warned that any conservative judge will severely limit access to abortion and even jail women who have miscarriages or still births. Roberts complained that “black women, primarily” were prosecuted for using drugs during their pregnancies and added, “prosecutors [are] already putting women in jail for still births, for miscarriages, and for botched abortions.” “It’s a very thin line between putting a woman in prison for a still birth or a miscarriage that she’s blamed for, for something she did during her pregnancy, and criminalizing...

    As the list of possible SCOTUS picks narrows to rumored likelies, what about the women? Who will Trump pick to replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy? We have some clues: “It will be somebody from that list,” the president said Wednesday, referring to the 25 names he published in November. Reports since then have narrowed down these top contenders to five insider favorites. “We have to pick one that’s going to be there for 40 years, 45 years,” Trump also said, suggesting a judge’s relative youth may be a deciding factor. There are six women on the list, and one in...

    WASHINGTON — President Trump said Friday two women are on his short list as the next Supreme Court nominee and he’ll announce his decision July 9. On his way to Bedminster, NJ, the president told reporters aboard Air Force One that he plans to interview one or two candidates this weekend. “I’ve got it narrowed to about five,” Trump said, including two women. [cut] Utah Sen. Mike Lee was on the list. “He said he’d like the job, usually they don’t say that,” Trump said.

    Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton criticized calls for civility from conservatives as Trump officials face public harassment over the administration’s immigration policies. In an interview published on Friday in the British newspaper The Guardian, Clinton accused the right of “bothsideism,” arguing it is hypocritical for Trump officials to be treated civilly in public while the government separates children from their purported parents who illegally crossed through the U.S.-Mexico border. “Oh, give me a break,” Clinton snapped when asked about calls for civility. “Give me a break! What is more uncivil and cruel than taking children away? It should be met...

    The Israeli army on Thursday graduated the first four women from its tank commanders' school, a step toward the formation of all-female tank crews. Another six have completed training as crew members, but actual deployment of any of the women will depend on the outcome of a review by senior officers, an armoured corps commander said.

    A study released by the Thomson Reuters Foundation reveals that, for the first time, the United States has been named one of the top ten most dangerous countries for women. The mirth is entirely unintentional, even though it's hard to believe that someone isn't pulling the leg of the international community. The study asked 550 "women's experts" which countries are the "most dangerous for women and which country was worst in terms of health care, economic resources, cultural or traditional practices, sexual violence and harassment, non-sexual violence and human trafficking," Leading the list is India, with its rape gangs...
  • Saudi Arabia Becomes Last Country in the World That Allows Women to Drive

    If you were following international news closely, you’ve probably already learned that the Islamic Wahhabist radical regime that is currently ruling Saudi “Barbaria” just allowed half of their citizenry to drive cars. As the clueless left-wing Islam loving mainstream media wrongly put it, Saudi Arabia entered the 21st century in 2018, finally. The truth is, they’ve actually entered the 20th century, 100 years late unfortunately. Since the despised culture of the deplorable white man started the industrial revolution back in the 19th century, and automobiles entered mass production early in the 20th, women were never banned from driving cars. Hell,...

    In 2016 after her loss in the presidential race, Hillary Clinton warned women, “You have to be prepared for what it means to literally be brutalized. ... It’s not to say men don’t get harsh treatment, but you are carrying the burden of the double standard.” She said a few months later that “[Women] get constant messaging our whole lives: You’re not thin enough, talented enough, smart enough. Your voice isn’t what we want to hear.” I rarely say this, but Hillary is right. She was talking about her experiences, not of the women who are now being dragged through...

    The play began slowly, with a neat corner kick to one of Portugal’s midfielders — four minutes into last week’s World Cup match against Morocco. The drama built with a lob to the six-yard box, tantalizingly close to the goal. And it reached a crescendo with a a diving header by Cristiano Ronaldo that sent the ball to the back of Morocco’s net. One to 0. Who gets to narrate such moments of high athletic drama became a subject of controversy this week when Vicki Sparks, a British sports journalist who made history by becoming the first woman to commentate...
  • Saudi Arabia's ban on women driving about to end

    06/23/2018 11:36:24 AM PDT · by BBell · 8 replies
    Saudi women are to be allowed to drive from midnight local time (21:00 GMT) after a ban comes to an end. The change was announced last September and Saudi Arabia issued the first licences to women earlier this month. It was the only country left in the world where women could not drive and families had to hire private chauffeurs for female relatives. However the move comes amid an intensified crackdown on activists who campaigned for the right to drive. At least eight women's rights activists are being detained and could face trial in a counter-terrorism court and long prison...

During the early weeks after the USS Fitzgerald was speared by a lumbering Philippine container ship, it was noteworthy that the captain and a couple of admirals were publically named, but not the actual officer in charge, the officer of the deck. (OOD) The other person who should have kept the Fitz out of trouble is the person in charge of the combat information center, the Tactical Action Officer. That individual is supposed to be monitoring the combat radar, which can detect a swimmer at a distance of...

    Cancer cells (blue) are deactivated. Credit: Imperial College London ______________________________________________________________________ Scientists at the Ovarian Cancer Action Research Centre at Imperial College London have discovered a mechanism that deactivates ovarian cancer cells. The findings, published in EMBO Reports, could lead to better treatments for women with ovarian cancer. The research has found a new mechanism for a protein named OPCML. This protein is known as a tumour suppressor, as it prevents cells turning cancerous. However OPCML is usually lost in cancer patients. Scientists have now found that when OPCML is put back into cancer cells, it cleverly deactivates a type...

And if you find someone to love the you you love, well, that’s just fabulous.” — Carrie Bradshaw This month marks the twenty-year anniversary of the iconic television series “Sex and the City.” With smart writing...
