    Dear Abby, My husband hasn't worked for the last 14 years. All he does is get dressed in the morning and hop in his fancy car to visit his cronies. I know he's cheated on me many times with young girls who could be his granddaughters. I know this because he brags about this to me. He smokes fancy cigars and drinks the most expensive liquor day and night. We sleep in separate beds because he tells me he knows I`m a lesbian and besides that, my varicose veins and fat behind turns him off. Should I clobber him with...

    AVOCADOS A wife asks her husband, "Could you please go shopping for me and buy one carton of milk and if they have avocados, get 6. A short time later the husband comes back with 6 cartons of milk. The wife asks him, "Why did you buy 6 cartons of milk" He replied, "They had avocados." If you're a woman, I'm sure you're going back to read it again! Men will get it the first time. WATER IN THE CARBURETOR WIFE: "There is trouble with the car. It has water in the carburetor."

    I love women. Not in the social justice warrioresque "We must praise women as strong, capable CEOS and STEM graduates who can do anything men can do, but in heels" way, but in an old-school way. It's easy to respect a mother who watches out for her children, a wife who is loyal to her husband, or a sister who cares for her brother. I love a beautiful woman. I love a sexy woman. I love a woman who gives off that amazing feminine energy. As a man, being around a woman like that is just good for your spirit.All...

  • A Good Man Is Still Hard to Find

    Women have been complaining since the original Adams family was evicted from the Garden of Eden that "A good man is hard to find." Despite radical feminist mockery of the very idea of manliness, that men are natural sexual predators, most women -- with very few exceptions -- still want one. The #MeToo movement has nevertheless changed a lot of things in the wake of the sexual harassment-scandal season. One of them is the regard in which men are universally held by women. It often seems we're back to the '80s, when there was a similar assault on the idea...
  • NBC orders staff to rat out misbehaving colleagues or be fired

    NBC has issued strict new anti-sexual harassment rules to employees — including that staffers must snitch on any misbehaving colleagues — in the wake of the firing of disgraced “Today” show host Matt Lauer. A source tells Page Six that NBC employees have been ordered to report any inappropriate relationships in the workplace — and if they fail to do so, they could be fired for covering up for colleagues. Detailed rules also have been issued about conduct in the office, including how to socialize and even how to hug colleagues. A source says, “Romantic relationships at work are not...

    When I was 23 years old, my boss would look down the gap at the waistband of my jeans when he walked past my desk. I was an entry-level fact-checker at my first magazine job, and he was an older and more powerful editor. My career, at the time, was in his hands. Once, when we had finished working on a story together, he suggested we get a drink to celebrate. It was a Friday night, and I remember feeling extremely nervous as we sat across from each other in a dark bar. He was flirting with me, I could...

    Sometimes it’s appropriate to speak ill of the dead. Playboy founder Hugh Hefner died Wednesday, aged 91. But his work of mainstreaming porn will likely live on—and continue to hurt men and women—for many years to come. Playboy helped usher in an era of porn addiction, decreased happiness, and strained relationships between men and women. Porn did of course exist before Hefner, and the internet—a technological innovation Hefner had nothing to do with—greatly accelerated the use of porn. But what Hefner did was to bring porn out of the shadows, to make it something that could be discussed openly and...

    Spend a little time with single women in their early to mid-30s, and you'll be grateful you're not one of them. The relationship scene is even more dismal today than when I was their age. All the women want serious relationships that lead to marriage, but many of the men they meet do not. All too often a woman moves in with some guy, hoping they're on the road to somewhere. Two years later, he tells her he's not ready for marriage and kids just yet. Splat.But wait. Hasn't online dating made the mating market easier? Yes – for men....

    CENTRALIA— A couples therapy scheme gone very wrong is reportedly to blame in the case of two Centralia women glued together by the pinky finger using an unknown epoxy and a copper pipe, according to the Centralia Police Department. “They haven’t been able to feel their fingers for three days.” said Det. Patty Finch, of the Centralia Police Department. According to the Centralia Police Department, Rachel A. Deckert, 27, attempted to turn herself in at 3:54 p.m. Monday at the Lewis County Jail on an outstanding misdemeanor warrant for a driving under the influence case. She was served with the...

Headline: “Clinical Psychologist: Women ‘Hate’ Harmless Men.” You know, every so often, folks, these stories cross our proverbial desk here. Every six months or so you get a story about male-female relationships of the day and how they’ve changed, you know, what men look for in women today versus 20 years ago, 30 years ago, and vice versa. And we have another one today from a clinical psychologist claiming — his name is Jordan Peterson is the clinical psychologist, professor of psychology University of Toronto. He’s...

    It’s the one drink you don’t want your new date to order during your first outing. Some Chicago bars are using a new method to help protect women’s safety. CBS 2’s Audrina Bigos shows us a secret code system that triggers a silent alarm if women feel they’re in danger. Inside New Line Tavern in the West Loop, Marisa Kersten noticed a sign in the ladies’ room. It tells women how they can get assistance from the staff in event a first date implodes or is turning scary. They need to repeat some secret codes at the bar. Staff member...

    A first draft of the "tree of life" for the roughly 2.3 million named species of animals, plants, fungi and microbes -- from platypuses to puffballs -- has been released. A collaborative effort among eleven institutions, the tree depicts the relationships among living things as they diverged from one another over time, tracing back to the beginning of life on Earth more than 3.5 billion years ago. Tens of thousands of smaller trees have been published over the years for select branches of the tree of life -- some containing upwards of 100,000 species -- but this is the first...
  • Dating rule: Men don’t trust hot women but women do

    05/10/2015 3:40:00 PM PDT · by BenLurkin · 32 replies
    During a recent study, researchers found that women with a glam look although attract men more easily, men usually don’t trust them. However, the findings of the study are suggesting that women find well-groomed men more reliable. These findings have made the already complicated world of online dating even more complicated. Those who think that uploading their hottest picture is the best way of getting suitable dating partners should take the above findings into consideration; this is because by looking too hot you might make people feel that you are “too hot to trust”. The said study was conducted for...

    The Atlanta Black Star ^ | March 15, 2015 | Taylor Gordon
    From a very young age, Black men are typically given a traditional set of roles they are expected to take on in a relationship. Perhaps two of the most emphasized of these roles are the protector and the provider. Unfortunately, the sheer necessity of the Black Lives Matter movement is a reminder that it can be increasingly difficult for Black men today to fulfill these roles in the traditional sense. How can one be a provider for his partner and family when he is suddenly placed in a position where it has become difficult to even protect himself? How can...

    Harvard University has instituted a total ban on professors having sex with undergraduate students, strengthening language it said didn’t reflect its expectations on appropriate relationships between faculty members and students. Harvard said in a statement released Thursday the change came as part of a formal review of its policy on Title IX, the federal civil rights law prohibiting sex discrimination in education. The Faculty of Arts and Sciences Committee on Sexual Misconduct Policy and Procedures determined the university’s language on “relationships of unequal status” was not strong enough. …

    Science says lasting relationships come down to—you guessed it -- KINDNESS and GENEROSITY. Every day in June, the most popular wedding month of the year, about 13,000 American couples will say “I do,” committing to a lifelong relationship that will be full of friendship, joy, and love that will carry them forward to their final days on this earth. Except, of course, it doesn’t work out that way for most people. The majority of marriages fail, either ending in divorce and separation or devolving into bitterness and dysfunction. Of all the people who get married, only three in ten remain...
