    Kelsie Bryson says the excruciating migraines started around 2008, when she was 18 years old. They would come about once a month and cause what the now 28-year-old Bryson calls “really terrifying side effects.” “I would experience numbness in the right side of my body — including in my mouth, which would prevent me from talking for 15 or so minutes at a time — vomiting and confusion,” she told Global News. “I would be at work, and suddenly, it would be hard to read words or speak. I would bump into things and then my body would go numb....
  • Ryan Adams, 44, is accused of sexual and emotional abuse by seven women (Trump hating singer)

    Famed singer Ryan Adams has been accused of sexual misconduct and emotional abuse by a slew of woman, including his ex-wife actress Mandy Moore. At least seven women say that the accomplished American solo singer was abusive, offering mentorship and career opportunities for young aspiring female artists in exchange for sex. When they didn't let him have his way, he allegedly harassed them. One of the victims claims she was just 14 when the artist sexted her and exposed himself to her via Skype, and said people would compare him R. Kelly if anyone found out about their relationship. The...
  • Not 'All Americans' Are 'Proud That We Have More Women in the Workforce Than Ever Before'

    In his State of the Union address, President Trump announced, "All Americans can be proud that we have more women in the workforce than ever before." It was one of the few times he received a standing ovation from both Democrats and Republicans. I would not have stood and cheered. Either the president or whoever wrote that line honestly thought it was something worth celebrating, or the president simply wanted to say something that would sound wonderful to both Democrats and Republicans, as well as to Americans who do not otherwise support him. Whatever the reason, both the fact that...

    Wanted: one very hangry, very pregnant bat-swinging woman with a serious beef. Cops were still searching Saturday for a mystery woman who became so enraged last month when a Bronx restaurant ran out of Jamaican beef patties, she came back with a baseball bat and smashed up the front window. The batty-for-patties customer appeared to be about eight months pregnant, and had been to the Back Home Restaurant in Morrisania before...

    Scroll down for video at link. On Friday, TMZ caught up with CNN's Don Lemon at Los Angeles International Airport. The tabloid decided to ask Lemon about the scandal going on in Virginia with Gov. Ralph Northam's yearbook photo where he wore black face. The reporter asked Lemon if he thought women would be better political leaders because of their backgrounds being "less sketchy." The CNN anchor laughed and agreed. “Women are the smartest of the sexes and they always have been," Lemon said. “We would be a whole lot better off if women were running things — more things...

    Virginia's embattled lieutenant governor has urged authorities to investigate sexual assault allegations made against him, but hasn't heeded calls to resign and it is unclear what comes next for the once-rising star of the state Democratic Party. Two women have made allegations against Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax. But on Saturday Fairfax issued a statement repeating his strong denials that he had ever sexually assaulted anyone and made clear he does not intend to immediately resign. Democratic Del. Patrick Hope said he wants to introduce articles of impeachment against Fairfax on Monday, but Hope is not a powerful figure in the...

    President Donald Trump did the unthinkable Tuesday night during his State of the Union address: he inspired a phalanx of left-wing women members of Congress, wearing white in protest, to jump to their feet and applaud. Many female Democrats dressed in white, as they have for previous addresses by President Trump, in homage to the suffragettes — and in protest against a president whom they believe represents the antithesis of their aspirations. Some, including Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), frowned as Trump emphasized themes of compromise and national unity. But all — including her — rose in celebration as the...

    Infertility is a part of life for 1 in every 8 couples in the United States. Most people know that risk factors like age and tobacco use can make having a baby difficult, yet, there are young, tobacco-free families who struggle to get pregnant in every community. Because knowledge is critical in safeguarding your reproductive health, here are five causes of infertility you may never have heard of. 1. LEEP Procedures If you’ve ever had an abnormal Pap smear, you may have heard of LEEP (Loop Electrosurgical Excision Procedure). With this treatment, doctors use an electrically heated wire loop to...

    House Democrats were joined by Lilly Ledbetter, the namesake of the fair pay act signed by President Obama in 2009, to introduce supplemental legislation they say gives women "new tools" to challenge the gender pay gap. The Paycheck Fairness Act, which is sponsored by Rep. Rosa DeLauro, D-Conn., and Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., addresses modern-day salary imbalances between men and women, which can be exacerbated when women are unaware of their male coworkers' salaries. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-New York, said while introducing the bill that women could use a Google sheet to share salaries. Ocasio-Cortez, a progressive and the most...

    The American Psychological Association has, in its words, issued “its first-ever guidelines for practice with men and boys.” These guidelines “draw on more than 40 years of research showing that traditional masculinity is psychologically harmful and that socializing boys to suppress their emotions causes damage.” Three observations: 1) The last thing American males need today is less masculinity. If you need proof, ask women who are looking for a husband whether the men they date exhibit too much masculinity, too little masculinity, or just the right amount. I have talked to hundreds of women on my radio show (every week...

    I am a big believer that men and women are different, and that the best way to maintain a strong family is to recognize these differences, embrace them and use them to our advantage. Of course, this is a traditional way of running a family household. It has worked for thousands of years. Today, I would like to concentrate on one of the fundamental elements of this traditional family setup; the Woman’s very-own Personal Vanity Space. Men need their own spaces, of course. In Pittsburgh, the men would be given the basement, the garage, and the lower levels of a...

    It seems these days like everyone and their genderfluid grandma has some “profound” insight into the minds and world of men. Men and masculinity are spoken of in the media with sharp tones of fear mixed with disdain, as if we are a dangerous aberrant genetic anomaly that needs to be studied under a special microscope that will protect the observer from being influenced by our vitriolic pheromones. The problem is, most of these “experts” on manhood are not men at all, or, their observations of male behavior are tainted with deep-seated resentments. That is to say, they are hardly...

    The major media have gone gaga over the number of women newly elected to Congress and those announcing their run for the White House in 2020, with more female candidates likely to follow suit. But media's bias -- one of many -- is revealed in their focus on mostly liberal women with barely a mention, if they are mentioned at all, of women who are conservative. Reporters, commentators and hosts on major networks, and including some cable outlets, speak of "women's issues," as if all women think, or should think, alike. Worse, they never examine whether ideas floated by liberal...

    A few years ago, during a panel discussion at the 47th annual Congressional Black Caucus, U.S. Representative Brenda Lawrence (D-Mich.) was the opening speaker on the topic of “Putting Black America to Work: the New Skilled Trade Workforce.” Lawrence noted that the industry supported by skilled trade workers will need an infusion of youth because the average age of workers was 53 years old. Rep. Lawrence said, “We are building a new bridge from Detroit to Windsor (Canada). I’ve been told we are bringing in welders from Vietnam to help build it.” It seems unfathomable that the United States, a...

    Rev. Jacqui Lewis, a senior minister at Middle Collegiate Church in New York, took the stage Saturday at the Women’s March and announced what she believed to be Americans’ greatest enemies. “I am so glad to be able to follow my indigenous family and share some words of blessing,” Lewis said as she opened her speech. “Standing here and looking at you and thinking about this movement makes me want to tell you what it means for me to be a Christian pastor.” “There’s all kinds of Christians, but I’m the kind that believes that there’s more than one path...

    Despite what was a much delayed but important avalanche of headlines about the group’s anti-Semitism, the 2019 Women’s March took place Saturday and it still received nearly 15 times the broadcast network newscast coverage of the 47th annual March for Life that was held Friday.  Between Wednesday morning and Saturday evening, the Women’s March fetched 14 minutes and 26 seconds of coverage on the ABC, CBS, and NBC morning and evening newscasts. This stood in stark contrast to just 58 seconds for the March for Life. The Women’s March still went on despite their controversies with some satellite marches divorcing...

    Doctors are warning women to not take the 'irresponsible' advice of putting parsley in their vagina to kick-start their period. The bizarre suggestion was made by women's magazine Marie Claire alongside other recommendations using food, drink and exercise. Women may want to make their period come sooner as a means of controlling their cycle ahead of a holiday or special event. According to the article, parsley is an emmenagogue - a substance that increases menstrual flow - which can 'soften the cervix and level out hormonal imbalances'. ... Marie Clare has now apologised for the article and taken it down...

    **SNIP** Four organizations have sued the national Women's March group — led by activists Bob Bland, Tamika Mallory, Carmen Perez and Linda Sarsour — over efforts to trademark the name, arguing that no entity can own the march or the activism it has inspired. Some groups have sought to rebrand to shed the "Women's March" name and the tumult that comes with it. As they prepare for the third annual Women's March on Saturday, leaders are grappling with the question: What is in a name, and is the name "Women's March" worth fighting for? "There's power in the name because...

    The March for Life is, at its core, a women’s march.January 18 marks the 46th annual March for Life held in Washington, D.C. The rally champions life, especially of the unborn, by challenging Roe v. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court case that legalized abortion. Each year, the march boasts high-profile speakers and attracts up to hundreds of thousands of marchers – young, old, men, and, yes, women.The march calls attention first to the humanity of the unborn. But that’s why it’s also a women’s march: the event values all persons equally from their conception, whether male or female.It’s a march...
