'On a Monday night in a sparsely decorated room in midtown Manhattan, a group of approximately 20 men including an endocrinologist, a sportscaster, a policeman and an employee of the United Nations were baring their souls.

“I’ve been digging deep with my girlfriend and we are having those talks about moving forward in our relationship, and I’m having nights where I can’t sleep,” said Andrew Cummings, 44, an opera singer in New York who has performed at Carnegie Hall.

“I’m angry that my health is deteriorating. I’m not ready to be an old man,” said Jeff Nichols, 70, a former consultant.

“I’m checking in with some anger. I didn’t get accepted to the Ashtanga Institute, and I smashed two candles, which I know isn’t very yogic,” said another man, who asked to remain anonymous for fear of professional repercussions.
...
The goal, according to many affiliated with MKP, is to break down patriarchal and hierarchical ideas of masculinity. And the place to start is where another man, Socrates, did centuries ago: with the mandate of “know thyself.”

MKP translates this as a process of cultivating awareness around one’s emotions, so they aren’t projected onto others in harmful and destructive ways. This is accomplished through a series of facilitated exercises, some of which involve props, aimed at bringing feelings to the surface and to hold a mirror to oneself.

Men, who are less likely than women to seek out individual therapy, are increasingly looking for outlets in this fraught cultural moment of political acrimony, widespread economic instability and major societal reckoning over their behavior.'

Modern feminism is no less sexist than the misogyny it claims to fight

Article here. Excerpt:

'Modern-day, third-wave feminism is no less sexist than the misogyny it claims to fight. Often, feminists will place a veil of supposed progress over an actual promotion of inequality in an attempt to appeal to the masses. They believe this makes their message more palatable. In reality, it only highlights what drives them.

Lately, feminists have been promoting the "future is female" idea, as if success as a people or a nation is found in one gender alone. This supremacist mindset does nothing to right the legitimate wrongs of the past. Instead, it overcorrects and declares that sexism is wholly acceptable so long as you're demeaning men.

In the midterm elections, the Democratic Party saw plenty of gains. That small wave secured a lower house majority. Of the incoming congressional freshmen, 42 are women. Out of that number, only four are Republicans. (Overall, 102 women won their races. Eighty-nine are Democrats.) To those who push a divisive "new sexism" that promotes women over men, this excites them and only fuels more rhetoric. In their minds, the election results prove that Democrats support women and want them to succeed while Republicans don't.'

'For the first time ever the Boys and Girls Club of Washington County put together an event called The Future is Female.

Growing up in a world where social media and online images dominate the minds of impressionable children can be tough, especially young women, that's why the Boys and Girls Club of Washington County put on the Future is Female event.

"A program to help girls build their self esteem and self confidence. Right now they say at the age of 9, young girls begin to say they have low self esteem," said Eric Rollins.

One of the keynote speakers was Hagerstown Councilwoman Emily Keller, who says it's hard to escape bullying, she has had her share of attacks on social media, and she wants the girls to know that you just gotta let it roll off your shoulder.

"Just important to stay above it, and rise above it, and still pursue your dreams, and not let the negativity get to you," said Keller.'

Article here. Excerpt:

'A male professor at the University of Michigan-Flint is targeting women-only programs at multiple schools as an example of gender discrimination against men.

Finance professor Mark Perry has written to dozens of schools across the country targeting women-only scholarships and girls-only science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) summer camps, alleging Title IX abuses against men and gender non-conforming students.

“There is this blind spot in higher education where they have accepted discrimination against men and boys,” Mr. Perry told the Star Tribune.

The professor’s efforts recently put a stop to a women-only study lounge at Michigan State University.

“I called it gender apartheid,” he said. “They had this prime space on campus where they were discriminating against half their student body.”'

Gillibrand’s gone ‘full woke’

Article here. Excerpt:

'A guest on Tucker Carlson Tonight Thursday took a shot at New York Democratic Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand for a comment she tweeted earlier this week saying the future of the country is “female” and “intersectional.”

“Her ambitions have grown — being Senator, a bad Senator, is not enough, so now she has moved full woke. She now sounds like a sociology professor from SUNY Osweego,” Tucker began. “Half her constituents are men for example and she recently posted a message just for them. ‘There is no future for you,’ she said. On Twitter this week, Gillibrand wrote ‘our future is female. Intersectional and empowered by our belief in one another and we are just getting started.’ What the hell does that mean? Manhattan Institute fellow Heather Mac Donald might know the answer so we’ve asked her to come on tonight to explain.”

Following Gillibrand’s tweet on Tuesday, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio tweeted back at her saying that the country’s future should not be based on identity, but rather the fact that the people in the U.S. are all American.'

Opinion: VAWA is an insult to fairness

Article here. Excerpt:

'November was Native American Heritage Month. But the focus then and since has been almost entirely upon Native American women. It is rare for the problems of Native American men to receive so much as a nod.

The women deserve attention. An Associated Press headlined “Despite past reforms, Native women face high rates of crime,” explains, “For generations, Native American women have been victimized at astonishing rates, with federal figures showing that more than half have encountered sexual and domestic violence at some point during their lives — even amid a wave of efforts aimed at reducing such crimes.” The men deserve attention, as well.

One of the “wave of efforts” mentioned by the Associated Press is the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA, H.R.6545), which determines federal and funding policy on sexual violence. Currently before Congress, VAWA will either be reauthorized or it will be extended into early 2019 for reauthorization at that point. Native American women is a core issue in the Act. The section “Safety for Indian Women” cites a stunning statistic from a National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey entitled “Violence Against American Indian and Alaska Native Women and Men.” It states, “More than 4 in 5 American Indian and Alaska Native women, or 84.3 percent, have experienced violence in their lifetime.”

There is a curious omission in the VAWA citation, however. A statistic appears immediately after the 84.3 percent one. It is: “More than 4 in 5 American Indian and Alaska Native men (81.6 percent) have experienced violence in their lifetime.” That is only 2.7 percent less violence experienced by men than by women. A few lines later, the survey reports that “55.5 percent” of women and “43.2 percent” of men “have experienced physical violence by an intimate partner.” Those figures differ by 12.3 percent.

The omission highlights an objection that has been associated with VAWA since its inception in 1994. What about male victims? In this specific case, where are the Native American men? The title of the Act provides an answer: the Violence Against Women Act. Male victims of violence are not a concern addressed by the bill.  Why not?'
