From none other than J Steven Svoboda. Download the full review here. Excerpt:

'German lawyer and economist Florian Willet has published a remarkable book. Female Behavioral Economics: How Female Swarm Intelligence Sorts and Filters Men turns out to be outstanding in mostly desirable ways though a bit of “personality” comes through in the end. Warning: this review contains a lot of quotes from the book but I can’t help myself as it’s so well written and engaging.

5 Signs You’re In The Midst Of A Moral Panic

Article here. Excerpt:

'Moral panics, or instances of mass hysteria, have occurred throughout history. Two of the most notorious are the Salem Witch Trials of the 1690s and the Satanic Panic of the 1980s and '90s. The panics almost exclusively involve women and children and fears for their safety, especially from sexual abuse.

We are in the midst of another such panic, but despite the similarities to past episodes, we are still unable to recognize it as such. The current panic has been playing out in the military and on college campuses for nearly a decade, but with the advent of the #MeToo movement, the mass hysteria is creeping into our regular legal system as well. The following are five of the biggest signs that we are experiencing another bout of mass hysteria, this time over sexual assault and harassment.'

Nancy Pelosi is using gender to win over progressives in her fight to become House speaker

Article here. Excerpt:

'House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi says she is confident that she's the best choice to be the next speaker of the House — and that a movement against her within her own party is motivated by sexism.

Pelosi has long said that she remained in Democratic leadership after Hillary Clinton's 2016 loss because without her men would have dominated the highest levels of American politics.

"You cannot have the four leaders of Congress [and] the president of the United States, these five people, and not have the voice of women," Pelosi said during a Sunday interview on CBS. "Especially since women were the majority of the voters, the workers in campaigns, and now part of this glorious victory."

Pelosi's defenders have suggested that her demonization by the right is deeply infused with sexism.

UK: Sexual assault cases: Guilty until proven innocent?

Article here. Excerpt:

'"But from the moment the police questioned me they assumed I was guilty. It took nearly 18 months and a court case to prove them wrong."

John is a father-of-two. BBC News NI has agreed to call him John as he fears repercussions if he uses his real name.

He was acquitted on charges of rape and sexual assault. During the trial, it emerged that his accuser had previously made false allegations of rape against other men.
...
While all alleged rape victims are granted anonymity for life, like all defendants in a rape trial, John was publicly named.

He lost his partner, a well-paid job, friends and his home.

Experiences such as John's are being considered by an independent review into how Northern Ireland's criminal justice system deals with serious sexual offence cases, which is looking at how victims, witnesses and those accused are treated when a case moves through the courts.'

Study Claims Male Gamers Perpetuate ‘Technomasculinity’

Article here. Excerpt:

'Men can’t win. After enduring decades of being called “losers” or “basement dwelling neck beards” while simultaneously being accused of male privilege, now male gamers are being accused of perpetuating “technomasculinity.”

It’s like “toxic masculinity,” but in video games. A “study” from University of Idaho professor Robin Johnson claimed that technomasculinity is “an expression of masculinity that is oriented toward the mastery of technology and skilled use of technological tools and systems.”
...
Basically, someone made up a word to describe male technical interest and achievement, and using social justice buzzwords, turned that prowess into something anti-woman. In reality, constantly calling men’s actions oppressive is a form of misandry.'

False accusation exposed due to selfie

Article here. Excerpt:

'Cristopher “CJ” Precopia very nearly spent the rest of his life in prison after being accused of assault by his ex-girlfriend.

The woman, who despite obviously reporting a false crime has still not been named or charged, claimed Precopia broke into her house and attacked her with a box cutter, slashing an “X” into her chest. Based on her story and the cleanly sliced “X” on her chest, Precopia was arrested.

The 21-year-old Williamson County, TX, man told KVUE News he was confused when he was arrested on September 22, 2017 at the lumber yard where he worked. He couldn’t remember when he last spoke to the woman, whom he had dated years earlier in high school.
...
It took nine months for the charges against Precopia to be dropped. His accuser told police she made the accusation because the two had a difficult relationship years ago in high school.'

Do women do better in Congress than men?

In an interview on Good Morning America, Gillibrand, Democrat from New York, talked about how thrilled she is that more women are getting involved in politics, by voting and running for office.

The narrative that "women in Congress are more likely than men to collaborate, solve problems, and get the nation’s business done," isn’t true, wrote two political scientists.'

Changes ranged from narrowing the definition of “sexual harassment” to stronger protections for the accused.

Male Teacher Reportedly Punished for Refusing to Watch Girl Undress in Boys Locker Room

Article here. Excerpt:

'Common sense is dying in America, little by little, every day as political correctness and progressive policies take hold.

A supreme example of that is coming out of Pasco County in Florida, where a male teacher was reportedly punished for refusing to observe a girl getting undressed in a boy’s school locker room.

According to a warning sent to a Pasco County school district chairwoman, the non-profit Liberty Counsel litigation organization says the parents of a female student at Chasco Middle School — northwest of Tampa — determined this school year that they want their daughter to not only be referred to as “he” or “him” but be allowed to use the boys bathrooms and locker rooms. The school complied.
...
Robert felt it wasn’t right to be in there when there’s a “girl potentially being nude or undressed in that area” because of the “open locker area” and “open showers.” Yet he is required as part of his P.E. job to “periodically walk in and supervise.”

Home DNA tests doom anonymity for sperm, egg donors

Article here. Excerpt:

'All Ryan Kramer had to do was to swab his cheek and embark on nine days of geneological research to identify his biological father, a man who thought he would remain anonymous when he donated his sperm and never took a DNA test himself.

The year was 2005, when consumer DNA tests were in their infancy. Kramer was 15.

Thirteen years later, the explosion of individual DNA test kits has opened the floodgates for people who were born from sperm or egg donations. Increasing numbers of people are using the technology to uncover the identities of their donors.

In the growing field of assisted reproduction, donors used to be guaranteed anonymity.'

Woman charged after accusing deputy of rape has continued to stalk him, prosecutor says

Article here. Excerpt:

'A Charlotte woman who was charged with falsifying a rape accusation against an Eaton County Sheriff's Office deputy now faces an additional charge of aggravated stalking.

Already facing 10 felonies and four misdemeanors in connection with the false accusation, Kellie Bartlett, 35, was accused of recently stalking the deputy she had been ordered to stay away from, Barry County Prosecutor Julie Nakfoor Pratt said.
...
Bartlett filed a complaint with Michigan State Police in January, reporting the deputy had sexually assaulted her in March 2017. The investigation, however, determined Bartlett was a "willing and consenting partner in this act," Michigan State Police Detective Sgt. Erik Darling testified in a hearing that led to criminal charges.

She and the deputy began a relationship in late 2015, and ended the relationship in spring 2017. Once their relationship ended, Bartlett began stalking the deputy, Darling said.'

A false accuser's profile: Rape Crisis Center presents fake claim workshop

Article here. Excerpt:

'"Most false reports aren't because they're trying to put someone in jail. It's because they have some other motive: they need medication, they need an alibi, they're trying to get out of trouble, they have a factitious disorder," said Service.

Service says most false accusers don't even name a perpetrator. Which made us wonder: Why are fake rape claims such a concern if they are so rare? That's a question Service has too.

"Why are we prioritizing the rights of perpetrators and the reputations of perpetrators over rape victims and them getting justice," asked Service.

According to the Rape Crisis Center, the main reasons for false reports are to avoid trouble, seeking medical help, mental illness and personal gain.'
