I decided it was time MANN caught up to the year 2000 or so and I installed an SSL certificate. Those of you who have been utterly terror-stricken at logging in and posting for fear some evil feminist admin would steal your userid and password and use it to post stuff you never wanted to say need live in a state of abject terror no longer. Feel free to post away in the warm comfort of 2048-bit RSA encrypted security.

Shoe -> Other foot: feminist suing Twitter over her right to hate on transwomen

Posted in MensActivism.org

Article here. Excerpt:

'Canadian feminist writer, Meghan Murphy, who was permanently suspended from Twitter last November, is suing the social media site for deceptive trade practices and breach of contract. ‘Twitter would never have attracted the hundreds of millions of users it boasts today had Twitter let it be known that it would arbitrarily ban users who did not agree with the political and social views of its management or impose sweeping new policies banning the expression of widely-held viewpoints and perspectives on public issues,’ Murphy’s lawyers submitted. Good for her!

As I wrote at the time of her ban, Murphy, who, like me, is constantly de-platformed, attacked and vilified for daring to question the Orwellian madness of the transgender Taliban, is a target of vicious trans activists. Murphy had the gall to tweet about Jonathan Yaniv, who had demanded large payoffs from several female beauticians because they had refused to wax his scrotum. Yaniv, who claims to be female, had booked in for a Brazilian wax, a process done on women who wish to wear extremely skimpy bikini bottoms and not flash any pubic hair. Murphy’s crime? She referred to Yaniv as, ahem, a man.

The lifetime ban from Twitter has come as a significant blow to Murphy. The freelancer relied on Twitter as a platform to promote her writing and online magazine, Feminist Current, and had painstakingly built up close to 25,000 followers, so the ban has affected her income, as well as her reputation – after all – naive people still exist that assume a lifetime ban is for spreading hate and threats of violence, and not for telling the truth.'

Double-standard requested: Sexual harassment is OK so long as the victim is male and especially, gay

February 17th, 2019

Article here. First guy to get on board #MeToo, first guy to claim "no fair" when he himself is held to that standard. Excerpt:

'But now, amid new allegations of sexual harassment against Duran by members of the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles, some West Hollywood residents and politicians are saying enough is enough and that times have changed. Three of the city’s five council members have called on Duran to resign, saying he has become a distraction.

Protesters are planning to converge on the City Council meeting Tuesday to call for Duran’s ouster and seek action in another scandal: the recent deaths of two gay black men in the West Hollywood apartment of Ed Buck, a white, wealthy Democratic donor and LGBTQ activist. For several years, Duran worked as an attorney for Buck.
...

Duran, 59, has refused to step down, describing himself as a proudly sensual gay man who lived through a sexual revolution colliding against a prudish #MeToo movement that’s too quick to judge. Bawdiness is just part of who he’s always been, Duran said, and he’s not going to change now.

“There’s a culture clash going on,” the mayor said. “If somebody expresses himself or herself sexually, that doesn’t make it harassment, per se.”

“People are thinking that anything sexual is harassment because somebody feels it is unwelcome, but you have to open your mouth and say, ‘No, I don’t want this.’ … Otherwise, how are any of us able to navigate the sexual politics of 2019? I just think there are bigger, more complex issues at play, that everyone needs to take a timeout and slow down. It can’t be accusation equals guilt.”

Three current or former members of the Gay Men’s Chorus have accused Duran, the longtime board chairman, of crude sexual comments and engaging in unwanted touching.'

How Does a Straight White Male Democrat Run for President?

Article here. Excerpt:

'Still, the straight white men—including Biden and Sanders—are not being irrational by hesitating. Yes, they are risking a loss of media buzz, A-list staff and access to donor networks by allowing others get a head start. But they have good reason to tread carefully. Issues pertaining to race and gender are bound to be prominent in the campaign, and white men do not exactly have the best track record of dealing with them.
...
One question that will be particularly tough for any male candidate: Why shouldn’t the next president be a woman? After all, just among the five female members of Congress already in the field, Democratic voters can choose among different ideologies, geographic and demographic backgrounds, and types of experience. With so many qualified choices, shouldn’t the male candidates just get out of the way?'

Cal State slams the brakes on Title IX proceedings after courts repeatedly rule against universities

Article here. Excerpt:

'California appellate courts have repeatedly affirmed the rights of accused students in campus sexual misconduct proceedings in recent years.

Three of the rulings came against the University of Southern California, including two less than a month apart.

As it becomes increasingly clear that their procedures won’t survive judicial scrutiny, California’s largest university system has slammed the brakes on Title IX proceedings and others are rushing to comply with the growing body of law, the Los Angeles Times reports.

The most recent ruling bans a common system for Title IX investigations, where a “single investigator” also serves as “prosecutor, factfinder [sic] and sentencer,” and requires cross-examination of both parties and witnesses in live hearings.'

PTA president: Why we shut down a public elementary school’s ‘father-daughter’ dance

February 14th, 2019

Posted in MensActivism.org

Article here. Excerpt:

'It is that time of year, apparently, when “father-daughter” dances are staged, like one that took place at a Phoenix school a few days ago and was spotlighted in a cheerful Fox 10 newscast.

But not everybody likes such celebrations, it turns out. In New Hampshire, the Valley News reported on a mother named Jennifer Meade who attended a father-daughter dance at a community association that has held such an event for about two decades. She went with her boyfriend, 7-year-old son and 4-year-old daughter, but she and her son were asked to leave.

Now she is questioning the tradition — and she is not the only one. This post looks at why one elementary school just shut down such a dance. It was written by Marney A. White, a clinical psychologist and an associate professor of social and behavioral sciences at the Yale School of Public Health. She took a sabbatical this year to serve as president of the PTA at her child’s elementary school and as a practicing clinical psychologist. She is a graduate of the University of Virginia and has a master’s degree from James Madison University.'

Will 2019 be the year that colleges and universities stop openly discriminating against men, 47 years after Title IX?

February 14th, 2019
By Mastodon
Article Source
Posted in MensActivism.org

Article here. Excerpt:

'And yet despite the significant and impressive gains women have achieved academically in higher education since Title IX, and despite the significant and growing under-representation of men as the minority gender in higher education, it’s almost as if we haven’t yet advanced in our thinking from the 1970s when Title IX was passed. That landmark civil rights legislation guarantees that all genders, but especially women as an under-represented minority at that time, were treated equally in higher education in an environment free from any gender discrimination or gender favoritism.

But now that women (men) are the over-represented (under-represented) gender, and have been for more than a generation, higher education is still acting as if women still need attention, resources, scholarships, funding, fellowships, initiatives, clubs, camps, commissions, study spaces, conferences, and awards that aren’t available to men, with no concern at all about the under-represented minority. And that ongoing gender favoritism and special treatment for women in higher education, which comes at the expense of the under-represented gender minority, is now being increasingly challenged legally for violating Title IX’s prohibition of sex discrimination (including sex discrimination against men).'

'A college student who asked “Should White Boys Still Be Allowed to Talk?” in an opinion article for her college newspaper and was characterized online by some as racist wants to set the record straight, telling Yahoo Lifestyle, “I do not hate white people.”

Leda Fisher, a senior at Dickinson Collegein Carlisle, Pa., published the piece Thursday in the student-run newspaper theDickinsonian criticizing white male students for taking up space in underserved areas to validate narrow-minded opinions.
...
Fisher said she gets annoyed sitting in class listening to “a white boy explain his take on the Black experience in the Obama-era. Hey Brian, I’m an actual Black woman alive right now with a brain. In what world would your understanding of my life carry more weight than my understanding?”'

Australia: “Women outshine men in uni engineering offers”

February 14th, 2019
By Minuteman
Article Source
Posted in MensActivism.org

But still not ready to relinquish victim status. Link here. Excerpt:

'Young women not only have a higher offer rate (70.4%) into university engineering courses than men (64.8%), they also have a higher Tertiary Admissions Ranking (over 90) than their male counterparts (less than 40).
...
The higher offer rate being made by universities to young women has seen the proportion of women enrolled in university engineering courses reach its highest point ever at 17 percent. What’s also accentuated the heightened intake of women is a corresponding (17.9%) decline in male school-leavers wanting to enter engineering since the mining boom peaked in 2012.
...
Survey results found that female engineers reported average earnings 89 percent of their male counterparts, due largely to having roles with lower levels of responsibility.

The survey also revealed an alarming disparity in the age profiles of female and male engineers. For example, after peaking at 51 percent in the 20-29 age bracket, the age profile for all women surveyed falls steadily – with only 15 percent of women engineers being over 40 years of age.'

Why the war on masculinity is a crying shame

Article here. Excerpt:

'I baulk at the idea of encouraging half the population to walk around thinking that they’re intrinsically ‘bad’, which is one of the potential effects of this report. We certainly wouldn’t dream of suggesting that girls are the architects of their own mental health issues in such an uncompromising way.

So what makes it OK if boys receive this message?

That’s not to say our boys aren’t struggling. You only have to compare them statistically to their high-achieving female counterparts to see that they are. Boys trail behind girls at primary and secondary school, where their exam results are relatively poor.'
