A Guide to Dating Women Raised in a Matriarchy

Article here. Excerpt:

'I have since learned that it is a shocking amount of trouble to tell men on first dates that I was raised by a single mom. They are always well-intentioned, flirtatious, curious, nice — and blindingly ignorant. At first I thought they just lacked imagination. But I’ve come to see their responses as indicative of a more primal fear: Lots of people think that women need men, if not for their charm and likability, then at least for their ability to father children. A girl with no dad suggests maybe men aren’t so necessary after all.
...
My mom chose to be a single mom and also had five children: My older siblings and I have donor dads, and my two younger siblings are adopted from Guatemala.

When I tell my dates I grew up without a dad, I can see the synapses in their brains begin to spark. The first question that comes up for them is, I think, simply a curious one: What would a life without a father look like? And then panic sets in: Where did the father go? Were there no men? What happened to the men? Does she hate men? And then, the rational and generous part of the brain re-enters and produces a soothing idea: It must have been a weird and almost inexplicable life, which I can try to excavate through my clever questions.'

Article here. Excerpt:

'A lawyer slammed a “sexist” no-single-men pool party hosted by a California hotel while speaking with The Daily Caller News Foundation on Friday.

San Diego lawyer Alfred G. Rava is representing three men, Mitchell Fairless, Chris Fairless and James Hamilton, in a lawsuit against DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Golf Resort Palm Springs and Plush, a party company that hosted an event at the hotel. The men are suing the hotel and party company for violating California’s Unruh Civil Rights Act and Business and Professions Code 125.6.

Rava filed his lawsuit with the Superior Court of California County of Riverside on July 26 and received a copy of the complaint Wednesday. The complaint opens with a quote: “All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.”

Plush advertised its event at DoubleTree with a “discounted rate $175 per couple” and “single ladies are only $20.” At least one of the plaintiffs received the ad by email and Plush also advertised it at Plushlife.org. The plaintiffs assert the company banned single men from attending a pool party hosted by DoubleTree on July 20 and 21, citing a text message one of their male acquaintances received from Plush reading “single men are not allowed to the event.”'

Article here. Excerpt:

'Male, pale and stale university professors are to be given “reverse mentors” to teach them about unconscious bias, under a new Government funded scheme.

Under the project, white males in senior academic posts will be assigned a junior female colleague from an ethnic minority as a mentor.

Prof John Rowe, who is overseeing the project at Birmingham University, said he hopes the scheme will allow eminent professors to confront their own biases and leave them “feeling quite uncomfortable”.'

Double Standard? Wisconsin Senate Candidate Once Railed Against ‘White Male Entitlement’

Article here. Excerpt:

'Julie Henszey, a Democrat candidate for the 5th Senate District seat held by departing Republican U.S. Senate candidate Leah Vukmir (R-Brookfield), has posted some inflammatory rants on her personal Facebook page – mostly diatribes against white Christian men and their “power.”

“When all the homosexuals are converted, when all the minorities are silenced or displaced, when women’s vaginas are locked up (because that’s really what you are trying to control), when the only people left with a voice and power are white, straight men, will you be happy? Will you be fulfilled, that you are closer to God, that others respect you? What’s the point of ‘winning’ when everyone else loses? Here’s the truth: We all Lose. You too,” Henszey posted on Jan. 25, 2017.
...
Reached for comment on Tuesday, Henszey said she had an appointment at the time and would call back later in the day. She did not. MacIver News Service attempted to reach the candidate again on Wednesday, but the voicemail message seeking comment went unanswered.

Henszey apparently has removed the questionable posts from her personal Facebook account.

Her inflamed online comments have abated in the months after moving from “grassroots activist” in leadership positions with Indivisible and Citizen Action of Wisconsin, left-wing organizations known for intemperate rhetoric and vitriol for all things Trump, into the more cautious world of campaign politics.'

Vox’s Ezra Klein Defends “Kill All Men” Twitter Hashtag

Article here. Excerpt:

'In yet another article from the Left insisting that old, racist tweets from recently hired New York Times writer Sarah Jeong aren’t actually racist, Vox founder Ezra Klein veered off course into defending an old misandrist hashtag: #KillAllMen.

“A few years ago, it became popular on feminist Twitter to tweet about the awful effects of patriarchal culture and attach the line #KillAllMen,” Klein wrote. “This became popular enough that a bunch of people I know and hang out with and even love began using it in casual conversation.”
...
"They didn’t want me put to death. They didn’t want any men put to death. They didn’t hate me, and they didn’t hate men,” Klein wrote. “‘#KillAllMen' was another way of saying ‘it would be nice if the world sucked less for women.’ It was an expression of frustration with pervasive sexism. I didn’t enjoy the way they said it, but that didn’t mean I had to pretend I couldn’t figure out what they meant. And if I had any questions, I could, you know, ask, and actually listen to the answer.”
...
The problem with this kind of thinking is that it only ever applies to the Left when the person presenting the alleged offense is on their side. Those people are defended, while others are pushed out.'

After the bell, lawmakers still studying campus sex assault bills

Posted in MensActivism.org

Article here. Excerpt:

'Under the House bill, schools would be required to conduct the sexual misconduct climate surveys beginning in August 2019, after a task force develops a model survey designed to gather information, including the number of reported incidents of sexual misconduct on campus, student awareness of related policies, and what happens after a victim reports sexual misconduct.

"The reason for the task force is there are many ways to ask a question," Ehrlich said. "Questions can be asked in a way that lead to a certain answer. They can be asked in a way that you may not get as direct an answer as possible. It'll be the work of the task force to make sure that questions are asked in a way that they are as free as possible from bias."
...
Moore offered an amendment to the bill that added in elements of a broader campus sexual assault bill the Senate passed in November, including requirements that students be trained annually on sexual violence prevention and that each college and university designate a "confidential resource advisor" who can provide students information on available reporting options, counseling and medical services after an assault.'

Yale Ordered To Release Sex Assault Training Materials

Article here. Excerpt:

'Yale University must release the materials it uses to train administrators investigating claims of campus sexual assault after an expelled student requested them in his lawsuit against his former school.

In court documents obtained by The Daily Wire, U.S. District Judge Alfred V. Covello ordered the university to release the materials “because the documents at issue are relevant and responsible to the earlier request served in 2016.

Two years ago, former Yale basketball star Jack Montague’s attorneys served the Ivy League school requests for “[a]ll documents provided to any agents or employees of Yale or anyone appointed to serve on a [University-Wide Committee on Sexual Misconduct (UWC)] Hearing Panel concerning the operation, interpretations, or application and/or training on UWC disciplinary proceedings from July 1, 2011, to the present.”'

Welcome to the ‘Man Camps’ of West Texas

Article here. Excerpt:

'There’s not much to look at except dirt, mesquite, and sagebrush around the 10 acres of flat, almost treeless land near Goldsmith, Texas, where Aries Residence Suites runs a housing complex used by itinerant oil workers. Three years ago, all 188 rooms were as empty as the landscape—a testament to crude’s tumble from more than $100 a barrel to $30. Today, prices are up around $70 and almost every Aries bed is occupied, just as at many other “man camps” throughout West Texas.

The Permian Basin, a more than 75,000-square-mile expanse of sedimentary rock that’s one of the world’s biggest oil plays, is drawing billions of dollars in new investment. Companies are scrambling to find people to do everything from operating drilling rigs to driving trucks. Wages have reached such lofty levels that even unskilled laborers can earn $100,000 a year. Many of the jobs are in remote areas with no houses, schools, or supermarkets, so free room and board are essential perks for workers, most of whom elect to leave their families at home.

David Penny, a 57-year-old pump operator who’s originally from Zimbabwe, stays at the Goldsmith camp during his two-week shifts. “It’s a great place to work, but a terrible place to live,” he says, citing the heat, dust, and dearth of grocery stores and restaurants among the negatives. His wife, who lives 370 miles away in Dallas, “would never come out here, and I don’t blame her one bit,” says Penny over lunch at the on-site cafeteria.

Thousands of workers now reside in dormitory-like compounds in West Texas and eastern New Mexico, and more are on the way. Aries, which has 11 locations spread out over North Dakota, Oklahoma, and Texas, is expanding Goldsmith, which is near capacity, to 400 beds and will soon break ground on a 500-bed facility in Orla, Texas, a town with new oilfield activity but a population of less than 300.'

Some equal time: women report sex dolls are ‘better than men’

Article here. I totally get it. It can f*ck you all night and keep a boner with no necessity for ED pills nor breaks for water. But does it pay the tab or fork over child support? Excerpt:

'Men face being made redundant in the bedroom if women turn to silicone robots which “do not tire” or suffer from “performance issues”.

It comes as the world’s first Harmony sex doll owner exclusively revealed the “realism” of romping with the artificially intelligent android to Daily Star Online.

The male equivalent, dubbed Gabriel, is also programmed with unique conversations and stories to share with partners.

Women “will not have to worry about making any effort to get pleasure in the bedroom as the doll satisfies every whim,” Disclose reported.

The robots are said to be “extremely lifelike” with each model customised to meet the customer’s various requirements, including the head, body and gender.

They are hand painted to include detail such as freckles, birth marks and even scars.'

Sorority at Harvard votes to close over no-single-sex-groups policy

Article here. Excerpt:

'Two years after Harvard University said it would penalize students who joined fraternities, sororities and final clubs, a campus sorority chapter is shutting down.

The Delta Gamma sorority announced Sunday that it had voted unanimously to honor a request by its Cambridge chapter, Zeta Phi, to close.

“This decision does not mean that we are succumbing to the University’s new sanctions and policies,” the president of Delta Gamma’s national organization, Wilma Johnson Wilbanks, said in a statement.

“We will continue to champion our right to exist on campuses everywhere,” her statement said. “We believe the value of sorority is too great.”
...
In an email to students, Harvard’s president at the time, Drew Gilpin Faust, said that fraternities and sororities enacted “forms of privilege and exclusion at odds with our deepest values” and said that the school could not “endorse selection criteria that reject much of the student body merely because of gender.”

Ms. Faust’s successor, Lawrence Bacow, has said he intends to continue the policy. Other schools, as well as states around the country, have begun to crack down on Greek life organizations.'
