Violence Against Women Campaign Features Doctored Photos Of Hillary Clinton, AOC, Michelle Obama As Battered Victims

Article here. Excerpt:

'Italian artist AleXsandro Palombo has been raising awareness about violence against women by creating doctored photos of prominent political figures like Michelle Obama, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and Hillary Clinton that make them appear as if they are battered victims.

“The ‘Just Because I am a Woman’ campaign created by AleXsandro Palombo, which is currently on display in Milan, also features altered portraits of German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French first lady Brigitte Macron,” reports Fox News. “The posters note that such violence against women does not differ between races, classes or religions.”

Each poster features a message beneath it that reads, “I am a victim of domestic abuse. I am paid less. I’ve experienced genital mutilation. I do not have the right to dress as I want. I can’t decide who I’m going to marry. I was raped.”'

Ex-teacher who accused 4 football players of rape charged in false report

Article here. Excerpt:

'The ex-teacher who accused four former Spruce Creek High School football players of drugging and raping her in 2018 has been charged with giving false information to the police and offering alcohol to a minor.

Brianna Walker, who was an athletic trainer at the Port Orange school and was 23 at the time of the sexual encounter, pleaded not guilty to both of the misdemeanor charges. Walker was not arrested or booked into jail. A trial date is set for later this month.

Warwick pastor sentenced for false allegations

Article here. Excerpt:

'A Warwick pastor and Christian rock singer will spend a night in jail before starting 18 months of home confinement after she was sentenced in Kent County Court on Tuesday.

Kelly Shannon admitted to two counts of filing false police reports and one count of using a computer for fraudulent purposes under a plea deal. One of those counts is a felony. The rest are misdemeanors.

Christy Gilroy, whose son was falsely accused of rape in the case, spoke exclusively with the NBC 10 I-Team.
...
At age 13, he was charged with raping a teenage girl. He was sent to the state Training School and forced to wear an ankle bracelet. The case against him was dismissed after the girl admitted that Shannon told her to lie about the rape.

"I believe if she never came clean, my son's name would have never been cleared," Gilroy said. "There was never a sexual assault. It was all made up because I put a restraining order on Kelly Shannon."'

Meghan King Edmonds was 'really upset' by decision to have twin sons circumcised

Article here. Excerpt:

'Former "Real Housewives of Orange County" star Meghan King Edmonds expressed regret on Monday over her and her now-estranged husband’s decision to have their twin boys circumcised after their birth last summer. Speaking in the premiere episode of the podcast "Intimate Knowledge," Edmonds said that she wound up “really upset by” the decision to forge ahead with the procedure.

“I have two sons and I did it,” King Edmonds, whose sons are now 19 months old, said. “My partner was a professional baseball player. He was like, ‘Well in the locker room, I don’t want him to get him made fun of.’ I was like ‘Okay, well, you’re the dad. You do have 50 percent choice in this.’”

But in a discussion about circumcision rates trending down in several countries, King Edmonds celebrated the news and said “there’s no reason to manipulate your baby boy’s body like that.”'

Barbara Kay: According to data, it's the males of our society who are in crisis

Article here. Excerpt:

'In her 1998 address to a First Ladies Conference in El Salvador, Hillary Clinton observed: “Women have always been the primary victims of war. Women lose their husbands, their fathers, their sons in combat. … Women are often left with the responsibility, alone, of raising the children.”

If pressed, Hillary might have admitted that it is preferable to suffer bereavement than to die, and preferable to raise children alone than to have your legs blown off by an IED. But nobody of any influence did in fact press her on the subject. She was, after all, merely channelling the gender zeitgeist, according to which men as a collective are assumed to have inherent privilege, and women are collective victims.

A university ‘welcomed’ everyone but men in STEM events. A professor filed a Title IX complaint.

Article here. Excerpt:

'Marketing materials from a series of events at the University of Cincinnati suggest that they were not open to men, though the administration insists men were allowed to participate.

First brought to light Friday by University of Michigan-Flint economist Mark Perry, a UC press release from September shows that the only group not explicitly “welcomed” to the events was men who identify as men.

The release is titled “UC director of women in engineering announces fall programming for STEM students,” referring to Paula Lampley. Her position is based in the College of Engineering and Applied Science’s Office of Inclusive Excellence and Community Engagement.

The subtitle: “All female, non-binary and non-cisgender students are welcomed to attend all events.”'

Library says ‘Girls Who Code’ program doesn’t violate Title IX because it lets in boys (if they ask)

Article here. Excerpt:

'If you went to the library and saw an offered program called “Girls Who Code,” would you think it was open to your son?

Northern California’s Sebastopol Library, which receives federal education funding and is thus subject to Title IX, is arguing that its coding program’s name is irrelevant to who’s allowed to participate in it.
...
Holley said boys have participated in the “Girls” class in the past, though the library has never tried to verify each participant’s gender through an, ahem, personal inspection.

Manthey should really get over the “title” of the class, since every class is open to everyone, according to Holley.'

Sharf: Colorado higher ed circles the Title IX wagons

Article here. Excerpt:

'The Colorado Department of Higher Education has announced its appointments to its Title IX review committee, and they seem likely to reinforce the system’s bias against college men. This shouldn’t be too surprising coming from a governor who’s OK with campus kangaroo courts. Indeed, last year, Gov. Polis signed a bill that the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education notes will enshrine such courts into law:
...
Valerie Simons of UC Boulder, for instance, gave an interview soon after coming on board in which she indicated that those were her priorities. In the entire interview, there is literally not one word of concern for the men who might be accused of such behavior, or for a process to safeguard their own rights. It’s unclear whether the several lawsuits that the UC system has seen from men suspended, expelled, or otherwise punished have taught her anything.'

Doctors Looking For Couples To Test Male Birth Control Gel

Article here. Excerpt:

'Researchers at the University of Kansas conducting a clinical trial for a form of male birth control are looking for couples to test it out.

The birth control comes in the form of a gel, which is applied to a man’s shoulder or arm daily. Its mix of testosterone and progestin is designed to decrease sperm count.
...
Nagia said men would keep their sex drive while using the gel. When the couple is ready to have kids, the man would stop using the gel, and his sperm count should return to normal.

So far, doctors say the gel is showing great promise. None of the participating couples have gotten pregnant.'

Women only pension supplement breached EU equal treatment rules

Article here. Excerpt:

'On 12 December 2019, the European Court of Justice ruled that Spanish social security rules that granted a pension supplement to women who have had two (biological or adopted) children and who receive a permanent incapacity pension and not to men in the same position breached the EU rules on equal treatment.

A Spanish man, WA, was granted a permanent incapacity pension in 2017. He brought an administrative complaint against this decision to the Spanish social security authority (INSS), on the basis that if he had been a woman he would have been entitled to an additional 5% supplementary payment. Woman in receipt of a permanent incapacity pension who had two (biological or adopted) children received this supplement; WA, who had two children, was not entitled to it. The INSS rejected his complaint, stating the supplement was granted to reflect women’s ‘demographic contribution’ to social security.

'This was the perfect moment for women to own that emotional labour isn't just a wellspring of frustrating domestic gripes, but rather a primary source of systemic issues that touch every arena of our lives, in damaging ways that make clear the pervasive sexism in our culture.

We need to reclaim emotional labour as a valuable skill that everyone should have and understand, because it makes us more attuned to our lives. It brings us more fully into the human experience. It allows us to be the truest and most fulfilled versions of ourselves – as both men and women.

Going forward, "All of our missions will be female-led and female-majority. We, of course, will welcome with open arms our male colleagues, but we believe that women need to be placed at the center of our shared vision for space exploration, that women need to be given a platform for professional development, opportunities for research and training," Hastings said.'

Canada: Professor says it’s ‘absolutely correct’ that he’ll fail students who cite Jordan Peterson

'Ted McCoy has some advice for his students: Don’t cite Jordan Peterson if you want to pass my class.

The University of Calgary sociologist, whose specialty is the history of prisons and punishment, tweeted that it’s “absolutely correct” that students will fail his class if they cite Peterson, a popular Canadian psychologist and self-help author who is vilified by some progressives.

The Tuesday tweet responding to alleged rumors about his grading practices, since deleted, was promoted by The Post Millennial. McCoy’s Twitter profile is also now marked private, so it’s not clear whether he has elaborated on whether the Peterson tweet was serious, joking or something in between.'
