NPO: Our Gift for Shared Parenting

Article here. Excerpt:

'Each year, we give $5,000 to an organization we consider most worthy. This year, we have selected National Parents Organization and we intend to become regular contributors. 

Since 2009, we have worked with six young men who have aged out of foster care. They refer to us as their grandparents. They are all now 26-years old. Over the years, we have seen them struggle to have joint custody or even visitation rights.

The women have often accused them of spousal abuse. Often, the women have hurt themselves to show the police “what he did to me.” The police and the courts always believe the women. One young man, whom we’ll call Roger, had his bail set at $100,000. We hired a lawyer, who had the bail reduced to $10,000 because the woman was a felon. Had we not hired this lawyer, the young man would still be in prison.'

UK: Labour MP questions use of women-only shortlists and discovers consequences of dissent from feminist line

Article here. Excerpt:

'It's been a bad week for me and my husband, Austin Mitchell, the Labour MP for Grimsby. He’s been bullied and abused by his colleagues in his own party for daring to discuss the future of all-women shortlists.

‘Sexist and misogynistic,’ said Lucy Powell, Shadow Children’s Minister. ‘It’s the old, cloth-eared, macho politics,’ growled Labour aristocrat Dame Tessa Jowell. And Hull East Labour MP Karl Turner joined the ladies, describing his neighbour and colleague as ‘self-serving, chauvinistic, antiquated’.

Austin has been battered all over the media since his article in last week’s Mail on Sunday where he gave his views on selecting many Labour candidates for next year’s Election from all-women shortlists (AWS). Shadow Attorney General Emily Thornberry MP weighed in with ‘suspect his wife Linda is not amused either, is she?’.

You’re right, Emily. I’m not.

I have, for as long as I can remember, been a feminist. And I have, from their inception before the 1997 Election, been an enthusiastic supporter of AWS. Of the 120 women who became MPs in 1997, 101 were Labour. They changed the face of Westminster for ever. I was so thrilled I wrote a book, Westminster Women.

However, there have been some disturbing trends of late: seats where only one or two women applied, seats fixed in advance for favoured daughters. AWS should not become the ‘old boy network’ in a skirt. Most concerning of all, it appears to have become untouchable. Any suggestion of change or modification is howled down and treated with derision.'

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand and the cost of sexual assault on college campuses

Story here. Excerpt:

'Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., one of the co-sponsors of a Senate bill targeting campus sexual assault, tweeted out an article Tuesday that defended her bill, writing that she agreed with the author that the cost of campus sexual assaults outweighs any cost included in implementing the bill.
...
What Zhang misses is the fact that since CASA only focuses on accusers, the probability that colleges and universities will see more lawsuits from accused students will outweigh the cost of the bill and possibly even the penalty for noncompliance. Already there are more than 30 young men across the country suing their universities for what they claim was a denial of due process, and if CASA passes, putting more pressure on universities to convict, that number could increase dramatically.

Zhang also tries to shame the U.S. by comparing the debunked “1-in-5 women will be sexually assaulted during their time in college” statistic to the global problem of violence against women. Except that 20 percent of college women have not been victims of sexual violence, so Zhang, and other CASA supporters, are trying to make the U.S. look as hostile toward women as countries like Saudi Arabia, where women aren’t even allowed to drive, or Pakistan, where "honor killings" are prevalent.

For her part, Gillibrand still has not answered questions about the lack of due process guarantees in CASA. Her spokesman, Glenn Kaplan, did reach out to the Washington Examiner to discuss the bill, but wouldn’t answer the questions provided to him as other senators’ offices had done.'

Sexual-Assault Report: Yale Uses ‘Hearsay,’ ‘Scarlet Letter’ Against Accused

Article here. Excerpt:

'Johnson noted several irregularities in an essay for Minding the Campus, a Manhattan Institute project.

The informal process was used in seven assault cases this past semester, and zero in the previous report, Johnson said. He called it a “Scarlet Letter” approach in which an accused student’s inability to present evidence makes it “almost impossible” to avoid “being branded a rapist,” but the penalties are more limited, Johnson said.

One of the two accused students found “not culpable” – meaning Yale judged it “more likely than not he was the subject of a false allegation” – was still punished, Johnson noted.

The one-way no-contact order means that “if the two happen to enroll in the same course, the accused student would need to drop the class; or if the two happened to be assigned to the same dorm, the accused student would have to move,” Johnson said.

“In the several years” of the Yale reports, “there never has been any indication that Yale has punished even one student for filing a false claim of sexual assault,” Johnson said.

Yale also appears to have an “extraordinarily broad” definition of sexual assault, as shown by a lighter punishment – a one-year suspension – given to one student found guilty, Johnson said. The punishment “strongly suggests that his actual offense was not ‘sexual assault’” and yet the finding will likely prevent him from getting “any job that involves a background check that would access his college transcript.”

Even worse for another student was Yale expelling him after his accuser went to an administrator but declined to file a formal complaint, Johnson said: Yale continued the case, relying on the “hearsay” of the administrator to the Title IX coordinator.'

Men punished in sexual misconduct cases on colleges campuses are fighting back

Article here. Excerpt:

'Men punished for sexual misconduct in the wave of cases sweeping college campuses are fighting back against what they call unfair student disciplinary systems and publicity that threatens to shatter their reputations.

The current and former college students describe themselves as victims of false accusations amid a national campaign — led by the White House — to stamp out sexual violence on campuses. While the federal push to increase awareness of sexual assault is aimed at keeping students safe and holding the nation’s colleges and universities accountable, some of the accused say the pressure on their schools has led to an unfair tipping of the scales against them.
...
Debate over campus sex assault has exploded as college students and officials nationwide confront questions about what constitutes consent for sex and what behavior fuels a culture that tolerates or trivializes rape. The issues play out in an arena of young people living on their own for the first time and learning to make choices when alcohol and drugs are often in the mix. When details of disputed sexual encounters are injected into that debate, especially those that identify the accused, the situation intensifies. Individual reputations can be torched.'

India: Committee to study bogus cases filed by women against men

This is a step being taken in India in an attempt to give justice to falsely-accused men.

'Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar today said in the Assembly that a committee comprising women legislators Alina Saldanha (state environment minister) and Jeniffer Monserratte (Congress MLA) and women police officers would be formed to study the issue of bogus cases filed by women against men.

The issue was raised by former Chief Minister Digambar Kamat, who pointed out a case where a boy was falsely accused of molestation by a girl.

"The boy was not even allowed to make a phone call to his family. He had just dashed the girl by accident in a bus. The girl called up police and when he got down at Panaji bus stand, he was arrested," Kamat said.

Parrikar said that in a few cases women were found to have used the existing laws in this way. "Ninety per cent of the cases (of sexual assault against men) are genuine, but in some cases, the man may have been trapped," he said.'
