Gillibrand’s own sons have no place in her ‘future’

Article here. Excerpt:

'"The future is female.” It’s a favorite slogan of the identity left that has now gone mainstream. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand tweeted it on Wednesday, adding that the future is also “intersectional” and “powered by our belief in one another.”

But if the future is female, what happens to our boys? And what message are we sending our present-day girls?

Gillibrand is one of about 30 Democrats considering running for president in 2020, and the tweet suggests she’s seizing some strategic left-wing ground (in a primary field crowded with lefties) by appealing to the Dems’ identity-obsessed base.
...
Gillibrand has two sons, who apparently aren’t part of the future their mother imagines. They won’t be saved by intersectionality, either. White, male sons of senators will find winning the grievance Olympics to be nearly impossible.

And that’s the problem with our “future is female” moment. It doesn’t so much celebrate women as make them compete in the hierarchy of victimhood in a world we tell them has never been theirs.
...
Now let’s tally the harms to boys. The slogan tells boys that they don’t matter — or that they belong to the past. The future belongs to women, we openly tell boys and then wonder why they are failing to become the men we’d hoped.

Fewer boys go to college. The number of men out of the workforce has spiked. More men commit suicide. More men live at home with their parents into their 30s than ever.

If the present is male, boys sure don’t seem to know it.

Boys are falling off a cliff, and we’re not doing anything to stop it. We’re making them the demons in the story we tell girls about who is at fault for keeping them down. It’s grotesque, and mothers and grandmothers like Kirsten Gillibrand and Hillary Clinton should know better.'

How does #MeToo work when the accused is dead?

Article here. Excerpt:

'But there’s a difference in this case. The professor is dead. Mazor, who taught at Hampshire from its founding in 1970 until 2007, died in 2011.

“Lester was one of the chief influences in my choosing a legal career,” Sigmund Roos, chair of the college’s board of trustees at the time, said in an obituary. “He was really an amazing teacher, and someone who even as he was teaching was always learning.”

That tribute now stands at odds with the stance of the board of trustees, which had to decide this semester what to do with the legacy of a man unable to answer the accusations against him. College leaders have issued a formal apology to the alumna who came forward recently to complain of “inappropriate behavior in the 1970s,” according to a letter from Hampshire’s president, Miriam Nelson, which was addressed to the college community last week. Its subject was “Historical Harassment.”
...
“Professor Mazor,” the administrators wrote, “cannot defend himself.” What’s more, they said, “these actions date from decades ago.”

Nevertheless, the college chose to remove Mazor’s name from the room and the fund created in his memory.'

India: Women-only plane seating needed to combat sexual assault and midair ‘manspread’

Article here. Excerpt:

'Airlines are under pressure to provide separate women's seating to combat the lecherous spread of male passengers over the dividing armrests, amid a surge in midair sexual assaults.

Writing for the South China Morning Post, columnist Kate Whitehead described her experiences with "manspreading" and urged airlines to introduce women-only rows.

"Nine times out of 10 – based on my extensive experience flying 'cattle class' – if a man is seated beside a woman he will claim the armrest. Not only that, but his elbow will protrude slightly into the woman's seat space.

"Unless you are prepared to press your arm against the man's – which will allow you to feel the rise and fall of his breath and is, I feel, too inti­mate a connection with a stranger – then you have lost two inches of your seat."'

Article here. Excerpt:

'Republican Florida Sen. Marco Rubio hit back at Democratic New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand on Wednesday after she insisted that the future is “female” and “intersectional.”

“Our future is: Female, Intersectional, Powered by our belief in one another,” Gillibrand tweeted.

Rubio quickly responded with a rebuke of Gillibrand’s focus on identity politics, insisting instead that the future is “AMERICAN.” (RELATED: Rubio Backs Trump On Nationalism: ‘President Trump Is Right To Embrace The Label’)

“An identity based not on gender, race, ethnicity or religion,” Rubio continued. “But on the powerful truth that all people are created equal with a God-given right to life, liberty [and] the pursuit of happiness.”'

Article here. Excerpt:

'A student from Lincoln claims he was turned away from an a woman's march in the city because of his gender.

Thomas Cansdale says he turned out in the bitterly cold weather to lend his support to Lincolnshire Rape Crisis' 'Reclaim the Night' event on November 24, which saw women walk from Castle Square to St Benedict’s Square.

The 20-year-old attended with his girlfriend Rhian Richards.

But after arriving in good time and chatting to one of the organisers in a hi-viz top, Thomas says he was told he would not be able to join the march - though he could meet up with the group at the end.

His claim has been denied by organisers of the march, who have claimed they did not turn him away, but the rules did prevent men from going on the march.'

Article here. Excerpt:

'Princeton’s all-male acappella group is ending a tradition that goes along with their performance of a Disney song that a critic said promotes "toxic masculinity."

During their performances of the song "Kiss The Girl" from Disney's "The Little Mermaid" the Tigertones brought a random man and woman on stage, according to the group's president Wesley Brown in a guest column in the Daily Princetonian.

After dancing with each of them, the members then encouraged them to "do as the song says" and give each other a kiss on the cheek.'

Camille Paglia: ‘Hillary wants Trump to win again’

Article here. No direct references to MRA or MRM issues unless you count mentioning The Vile One or Jordan Peterson in any regard. More than anything, Paglia is just a good read. Excerpt:

'But I never fully understood Wilde’s caustic satire of Victorian philanthropists and humanitarians until the present sludgy tide of political correctness began flooding government, education, and media over the past two decades. Wilde saw the insufferable arrogance and preening sanctimony in his era’s self-appointed guardians of morality.

We’re back to the hypocrisy sweepstakes, where gestures of virtue are as formalized as kabuki. Humor has been assassinated. An off word at work or school will get you booted to the gallows. This is the graveyard of liberalism, whose once noble ideals have turned spectral and vampiric.'

Ex-Coach’s Wife: Teen Was ‘Willing Participant’ in Consensual Sex

Article here. Excerpt:

'A former high school football coach’s wife, who pleaded guilty to charges of having sex with a teenage student, insists that the sexual encounters with the boy were consensual and wants the teen’s new lawsuit tossed on that basis.

Kelsey McCarter, 29, of Knoxville, Tennessee, plead guilty last year to six counts of statutory rape of a sophomore at South-Doyle High sophomore where her husband, Justin McCarter, was a coach. McCarter was handed a three-year prison term.

But now, according to the New York Post, the convicted assaulter wants a judge to throw out her victim’s lawsuit because he says the teen engaged in the sex voluntarily.

The lawsuit filed by the teenager claims that McCarter repeatedly molested him after he and his older brother moved into the McCarters’ home in 2014. The lawsuit alleges that the McCarter’s were having marital problems and that Kelsey McCarter took her frustrations out on the teenager.

“[The boy] claims that he suffered injury from the repeated ‘sexual abuse’ by Ms. McCarter,” the lawsuit says. The filing also notes that past statements allow “the conclusion that [he] was a willing participant in numerous sexual encounters with Ms. McCarter.”'

Alum’s challenge of women-only opportunities on campus ignites debate

Article here. Excerpt:

'The University of Minnesota alum, who teaches finance at the University of Michigan at Flint, has approached numerous campuses in the Twin Cities and nationally about scholarships, faculty awards and programs reserved for women and girls. The U recently opened up several women-only scholarships to all students and is reviewing three awards for female professors. Now, Perry is pressing private colleges, including the University of St. Thomas and Macalester College in St. Paul, about science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) summer camps they host for middle or high school girls.

Perry's efforts are part of a larger push in recent years to challenge women-only programs on college campuses by invoking Title IX, the law banning sex discrimination in education programs that receive federal funding. The federal Department of Education has launched a slew of investigations into such programs. Perry argues they are not only illegal but outdated: For years, more women than men have graduated from college.'

When men rebel

December 4th, 2018

Posted in MensActivism.org

I would just like to point out that the popular uprising now in France spreading to other countries is being spontaneously driven by men. Once you leave men with little or no recourse, you make rebellion inevitable. I will bet if you ask a fair number of these men in yellow vests how they feel about the direction feminism has taken their societies, they'll have some pretty stark opinons. As go the men, so goes the nation.

One article here. Excerpt:

'The “Yellow Vest” protests he is a part of present an extraordinary venting of rage and resentment by ordinary working people, aimed at the mounting inequalities that have eroded their lives. The unrest began in response to rising gas taxes and has been building in intensity over the past three weeks, peaking on Saturday.

With little organization and relying mostly on social media, they have moved spontaneously from France’s poor rural regions over the last month to the banks of the Seine, where they have now become impossible to ignore.
...
In places like these, a quiet fear gnaws at households: What happens when the money runs out around the 20th? What do I put in the refrigerator with nothing left in the account and the electricity bill to pay? Which meal should I skip today? How do I tell my wife again there is no going out this weekend?'
