Opinion: VAWA is an insult to fairness

Article here. Excerpt:

'November was Native American Heritage Month. But the focus then and since has been almost entirely upon Native American women. It is rare for the problems of Native American men to receive so much as a nod.

The women deserve attention. An Associated Press headlined “Despite past reforms, Native women face high rates of crime,” explains, “For generations, Native American women have been victimized at astonishing rates, with federal figures showing that more than half have encountered sexual and domestic violence at some point during their lives — even amid a wave of efforts aimed at reducing such crimes.” The men deserve attention, as well.

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.

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:

'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.'

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.'

When men rebel

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.

Australia: "What a women-only super fund means for members"

Will be underwritten by sanctimonious "Future Super" fund, which divests from mining, farming, transportation and other industries which provide men with meaningful employment. Link here. Excerpt:

'Through its connection to Future Super, the fund invests ethically and, as well as providing services tailored for women, such as tech-enabled financial coaching, will advocate for a better deal for women.

The fund will, for example, push for more women on the boards of the companies in which it invests and will exclude companies from investment where their is abuse of women in their supply chains.
It should be remembered there are already some terrific super funds with very good long-term returns that, while not women only, have memberships that are dominated by women.
