'Marriage is in decline throughout the West, so should we be surprised cuckolding your husband is now just thing a woman might have to do?

New York magazine’s “Beta Male” fully lived up to its pegged name Thursday when it released an article entitled, "Women Are Now Cheating As Much As Men, But With Fewer Consequences.” The piece, written by a woman, aims to answer the question as to why this phenomenon is occurring in the most sympathetic light possible.

The takeaway from this article is that men, upon entering marriage, should be fully ready for the chance that if they fail to satisfy their wives, she will cheat, and there’s nothing wrong with that.
...
According to the experts consulted by the article, the cuckold is desperate to try to make things work out after finding out about his partner’s infidelity. The examples given by the article of men clinging to their two-timing wives are, like the previous anecdotes, males of an inferior status to their wives.'

'As colleges face increasing pressure to aggressively investigate reports of sex assaults, some critics say the rights of the accused are being trampled. Now they want federal guidance on the issue to be tossed out.

Their target: a "Dear Colleague Letter" issued by the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Civil Rights in 2011 that laid out specific requirements for dealing with sexual violence under Title IX, a federal civil rights law that prohibits sex discrimination in education.

Schools that don't comply risk losing federal funding.

Critics say the letter unlawfully imposed binding regulations, with severe consequences for the accused, without going through the public notice and comment process required by federal law. The letter should therefore be withdrawn and schools should review any resulting punishments of students, they say.'

Article here. Excerpt:

'Washington State University expelled a freshman female student two years ago after finding her responsible for sexually assaulting a male – and she claims that the complaint was driven by the man’s embarrassment.

BuzzFeed unearthed the 2014 case, which involves drinking games, an affirmative request for a condom and a host of people eavesdropping outside the room where the sex happened.

The teasing of the man and rumors that he didn’t want to have sex with “Rose” – the expelled student’s middle name – reached a resident adviser, who reported the incident for a Title IX investigation.

Rose filed a “countercomplaint” against the man, but the school shot it down:

“Who was most in control in the situation? Was one party engaging in isolating behavior? Who was less intoxicated?” are the main questions investigated, [WSU Title IX Coordinator Kimberly] Anderson said. It often comes down to small actions and text messages or photos. …'

'Dr. Shu-Ju Ada Cheng, an Associate Professor of Sociology at DePaul University has announced her intention to resign from her post, accusing the University President of “reinforcing existing inequalities” due to his support for the free and equal exchange of ideas.

In a message posted on Facebook, Dr. Cheng claimed free speech is a “delusional” idea rooted in “market ideology.” She said “incidents over the past two days” — a reference to Breitbart Tech editor Milo Yiannopoulos’ chaos-stricken visit to campus earlier this week — were a “symptom of historical institutional racism."

Following the disruption of Milo’s event, University President issued a lukewarm statement, slamming Yiannopoulos’ political views but apologizing to the College Republicans, who hosted the speaker, for the disruption to their event caused by threats of violence and protests. It appears this apology is what has upset Dr. Cheng.'

'In the viral ad for Qiaobi, an Asian woman is doing laundry before she is joined by a young black man leaning by the doorway. He has white paint splattered on his face, arms and pants, and wears a brown-stained white shirt. He walks towards the woman, exchanging flirtatious advances as she motions him to come closer. Once she lures him in close enough for a kiss, the woman shoves a detergent pod into his mouth and forces him head-first into the washing machine.

Smiling, she hops on top of the rumbling machine while muffled pleas are heard from inside.

Much to many upset viewers’ surprise, an Asian man emerges from the machine in the same outfit - clean white shirt included. The commercial ends with the woman delighted with the new development and the closing voiceover, “Change, it all starts from Qiaobi laundry detergent pod.”'

'Amber Heard showed up in court with a bruise on her face claiming Johnny Depp physically assaulted her and she's the victim of repeated domestic violence ... and the judge issued a restraining order requiring Johnny to stay 100 yards away from her.

Sources connected to Johnny are calling BS, saying Amber "is an affront to real victims of domestic violence."

The judge also gave Amber the right to live in the family home, but rejected a request to protect at least one of their dogs from Johnny. Amber asked for $50k a month in spousal support, but the judge rejected that request. And the judge declined to order Johnny into anger management.

Heard showed up with her lawyer, Samantha Spector, armed with photos showing various bruises ... she claims Depp inflicted various times during their marriage.

Article here. Excerpt:

'We are at a historic moment in gender relations. The women’s movement can move ahead with the active support, involvement and encouragement of men, or fall behind as men—especially young men—take up arms behind the quiet, but active, angry men’s movement. This conflict is playing out in politics right now.

Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders are tapping into what I’m calling a “Lean Out” generation of young, discouraged and angry men—men who are feeling abandoned by the thousands of years of history that defined what it meant to be a real man: to be strong; to be a provider; to be in authority; to be the ultimate decision maker; and to be economically, educationally, physically and politically dominant. A growing percentage of young men are being out-earned by young women, as women capture 60% of the higher education degrees required for success in today’s economy.

The future of men is women.

I believe women and the women’s movement can be at the center of a new narrative and national conversation focused on developing positive male role models for future generations. Focusing on better men, dads, husbands, boyfriends and sons does not come at the expense of the rightful attention to women’s rights and equality.
...
Just as it’s no longer acceptable to educationally, economically and politically restrict women, it is no longer acceptable to disregard men’s issues. When we bring men into the conversation, we further gender equality for everyone.'

Article here. Excerpt:

'Feminists deserve some of the blame for normalizing the aggrieved fragility of students. Rape and sexual harassment are real problems on campus, as they are in the rest of the world. But just as there is a “rape culture,” there is also a campus rape victim culture that tends to treat all young women as “survivors.” Accusers who say they have endured any sort of unpleasant incident with a male—from having to turn down a date request to deciding, the morning after getting naked and in bed with a man, that they wished they had not—are deemed as deeply damaged as child pedophile victims, battered women and rape survivors.

Colleges and universities, and their fraternities and athletic departments, need to do a better job of monitoring and weeding out the men who are rapists or potential rapists. Instead of focusing on that, colleges and universities—encouraged by feminists and women’s studies departments, and in many cases ordered to do so by various Department of Education edicts—have inserted themselves as referees into the messiest and most emotionally complicated and intimate entanglements human beings are capable of creating. Their rulebook is called Title IX, the federal law requiring that colleges ensure women get an equal education. It was originally applied to sports teams and funding but has been expanded to cover how universities handle claims of sexual assault and harassment. Acting in loco parentis and under orders from the federal government, administrators form de facto star chambers that act as judge, jury and executioner, without adhering to legal rules of evidence or due process.

'GOLD Coast men are taking out domestic-violence orders against their mothers, partners and relatives but support workers are sceptical of the applications’ legitimacy.

About 30 per cent of domestic-violence and family protection orders at Southport Magistrates Court in the first three months of this year were to men, rather than women.
...
Director of the Gold Coast Domestic Violence Prevention Centre Amy Compton-Keen said male perpetrators of domestic violence were known to take out orders against women as a means of control.
...
“That’s one of the dynamics of domestic violence, that the man comes off looking like he is a perfectly great guy but is often the perpetrator and uses the system to control the woman and she ends up taking the rap for stuff he has done.”

Despite this, Buckland Allen Criminal Lawyers partner Jodi Allen said courts could order cross protection orders between parties, and women could still lodge an application against a man, even if he had been awarded a protection order against her.
...
Assistant Commissioner Brian Codd said there were genuine instances of domestic violence against men.

“Yes, there are examples of it, but women committing domestic violence against men are definitely in the minority,” he said.'

'A concept for an app aimed at engaging boys aged 10 to 15 to teach them respectful relationships with girls has been developed by a QUT social marketing expert as "another part of the jigsaw" to prevent domestic violence against women.

The app, however, never mentions the words "domestic violence" or "violence against women," says social marketing expert Professor Rebekah Russell-Bennett from QUT Business School's School of Advertising, Marketing and Public Relations, who developed the concept with Logan-based (Brisbane) non-profit community organisation YFS.

"Interventions at this stage of life can change young people's personal and relationship trajectories, preventing problems in adulthood," Professor Russell-Bennett said.

"However, we are careful to steer clear of using the words 'domestic violence' anywhere in the app because, at that age, many young boys would not find it relevant. This may deter them from downloading and using the app.

"Instead the app focuses on what they do want to know: about how to talk to girls, dating, having respectful relationships and supporting their friends, in order to promote health relationships among young people and positive male attitudes.'

'The faculty of the University Of Minnesota At Twin Cities is considering a motion that would make free speech the college’s “paramount value.” If passed, it would, according to Inside Higher Ed, represent “the strongest such affirmation seen on any campus.”

One of the primary aims of the motion is to make it easier for controversial speakers to come to campus without being “shouted down.” As we reported in March, Professor Dale Carpenter, a faculty member who is championing the proposal, specifically cited the fraught visit of Breitbart Tech editor Milo Yiannopoulos and American Enterprise Institute scholar Christina Hoff Sommers as a catalyst for the motion.

The faculty’s proposed statement contains four key principles in defence of free speech, including a specific protection for speech that may be considered “hateful.”'

Story here. Excerpt:

'Until yesterday, for example, I never realized that forcibly shutting down a private speaking event was considered free speech. I was also surprised to learn that assaulting a police officer is now a form of protest. It certainly never occurred to me that making violent threats towards a speaker was a constitutionally protected right. In fact, I was pretty confident all three of these acts were illegal...highly illegal.

Yet, yesterday I saw radical protestors do all three of these things, without consequence. DePaul University administrators looked on dispassionately, as if this was an every-day occurrence. Watching this all unfold, I had to wonder for a moment whether DePaul administrators were defending some bizarre form of free speech I had never heard of.
...
Years of inaction by university administrators has left radical student activists feeling they are immune from the law. Free from consequences, or dissenting opinions, endowed with a feeling of moral high-ground, students have taken increasingly drastic steps to suppress other opinions, and conservative opinions in particular.
...
I talked to a few of the dozen Chicago police officers eventually called into the building, and they were irate. They were well-trained, and well-equipped to handle scenarios such as this. They wanted to do their job, and remove the protesters, but administrators demanded they stand passively and watch. Once again, violence prevailed over free speech on a liberal college campus, and the administration was 100% complicit.'
