Howard Schultz says mostly female cabinet would be 'benefit for the country'

Article here. Excerpt:

'Former Starbucks CEO and Independent 2020 presidential hopeful Howard Schultz said that if he were elected he would form a diverse cabinet, one that would potentially include more women than men.
Host S.E. Cupp then jumped in to ask him to clarify what he meant by “heavily weighted toward women.” Schultz explained that “we have more women running for president than any other time in the history of the country. This is an opportunity to demonstrate that women should have the opportunity to serve the government in high positions.”

Cupp then asked if the former CEO would be interested in having women “outnumber men” in his cabinet.

“I would,” Schultz immediately responded. “I would, I think it’s a benefit for the country,” he added.'

McSqueezy's list of women

Article here. Excerpt:

'Ahead of former vice-president Joe Biden’s expected 2020 presidential bid, women are speaking out about their personal interactions with him — alleging he physically touched them in ways that made them feel uncomfortable. Last week, the Cut published an essay by Lucy Flores, a former Nevada lieutenant governor nominee, who wrote that Biden smelled her hair and kissed the back of her head at a campaign event in 2014. In the week since, six more women have come forward.

Below, here’s a running list of the allegations against Biden.

Lucy Flores
On March 29, in the aforementioned essay published on the Cut, former Nevada lieutenant governor nominee Lucy Flores alleged that Biden smelled her hair and gave her “a big slow kiss” on the back of her head at an event for her 2014 campaign. In that moment, she wrote, she felt “embarrassed” and “shocked.”

Rutnik was sued when he attempted to distance himself from the group before reaching a settlement.

Teacher Fired Over Topless Selfie Sues Patriarchy

Article here. Excerpt:

'Middle-school teacher Lauren Miranda was eventually fired after what The New York Times reports was "a meeting with mostly men" that featured a picture of her bare breasts for all to see on a computer monitor.

While a teachers union representative claimed that it may not have been Ms. Miranda in the picture, she acknowledged that the photo was indeed of her, and that she had sent it "to a colleague she had dated."

The school became aware of the photo because it had somehow come into the possession of a student.

Ms. Miranda has since filed suit against the school district and the superintendent for gender discrimination, claiming that they would "not have fired her had she been a male teacher and taken an identical topless photo."'

Article here. Excerpt:

'A former substitute teacher from Louisiana, who has admitted to having sex with three underage boys, will not serve any jail time and won't even have to register as a sex offender as part of a plea deal.

Heidi M. Verrett, 34, pleaded guilty last month to three misdemeanor counts of carnal knowledge of a juvenile and one count of contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile, the Houma Courier reports. The former substitute teacher was arrested in 2016 for having sex with three 15- and 16-year-old boys at her home. She was also accused of sending inappropriate texts to a 12-year-old boy.

Verrett has been handed down a suspended six-month sentence, two years of unsupervised probation and and a $900 fine.

Former Fresno middle school teacher testifies she was pressured into giving student oral sex

Article here. Excerpt:

'Former Tenaya Middle School teacher Justine Karen Nelson knew that her relationship with a student was wrong. But she said what began as simple flirting quickly turned to coercion and sexual contact.

Nelson, who is charged with felony counts of lewd or lascivious acts with a minor and oral copulation, testified Wednesday that she fell prey to the attention and kind words of one of her students.

Their friendship began innocently enough with talks in her classroom. That soon progressed to direct messages on Instagram and later to much more secretive text messages. At first, they talked about routine things, like basketball and school. And then it became more personal.

Nelson acknowledged having trouble with her marriage during this period in 2016. She and her husband, who was a physical education teacher at Tenaya, would argue often, even at school and in front of students. Nelson said she appreciated the student’s friendship. Early on, she even sent him a photo of herself at a bachelorette party.'

Male Professor, Wronged by Title IX?

Article here. Excerpt:

'An ex-professor’s claim that he was unfairly caught up in the Me Too movement and dismissed from the University of the Arts without a hearing -- after the university ignored his own sexual harassment claim -- just cleared a major legal hurdle. A federal judge in Pennsylvania ruled that photographer Harris Fogel’s "erroneous outcome" case under Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, which prohibits gender-based discrimination, may proceed.

The judge also said Fogel could proceed with a defamation claim against his faculty accuser, who allegedly talked about him negatively to colleagues at a conference, and with a related invasion of privacy claim.'

Joe Biden Created the Culture He Is a Target Of

Article here. Excerpt:

'Joe Biden is now living in the world of accusation he helped to create. It is one of peril for the accused, in which they are subjected to expansive definitions of sexual misconduct and little benefit of the doubt. Biden helped to bring it about as the leader of the Obama administration’s cornerstone effort to end sexual assault at colleges and universities, a worthy undertaking that quickly spiraled into overreach. The goal, as Biden often says, was to remake sexual culture on campuses and in society at large—a goal that’s reached remarkable fruition in the MeToo era. Now, as he mulls whether to enter the presidential race, Biden is finding himself ensnared by some of the doctrines he has advocated over the last several years.

“Angry White Male Studies” (HUM 365), which is being offered during the fall 2019 semester, will explore “the deeper sources of this emotional state while evaluating recent manifestations of male anger” in Europe and America from 1950 to present, according to the course description.

The course is cross-listed under both the Humanities department and the Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies department at KU and is an option to satisfy a Humanities course requirement.'

Mayor of NYC seeks to reduce number of boys in specialized high schools

Article here. Excerpt:

'Mayor de Blasio’s plan to eliminate the Specialized High Schools Admissions test will hurt boys. Models project that if he succeeds in replacing the SHSAT with a grade- and state-test-based quota system, the percentage of boys at the Specialized High Schools will plummet from 54% to 34%, in a city where boys make up 52% of the student population.

That is at least 1,000 fewer seats for boys each year.

While the mayor’s plan to change admissions is explicitly designed to boost the number of black and Hispanic students, it has also disingenuously been sold as a blow for gender equity, since girls now hold slightly less than half the seats at Specialized High Schools.

‘Equal Pay Day’ this year is April 2 — the next ‘Equal Occupational Fatality Day’ is on May 3, 2030

Article here. Excerpt:

'Every year the National Committee on Pay Equity (NCPE) publicizes “Equal Pay Day” to bring public attention to the gender earnings gap. According to the NCPE, “Equal Pay Day” falls this year on Tuesday, April 2 based on an approximate 20% difference in unadjusted, raw median annual earnings according to either Census Bureau or BLS data, and therefore allegedly represents how far into 2019 women will have to continue working to earn the same income that the men earned in 2018, supposedly for doing the same job. Inspired by Equal Pay Day, I introduced “Equal Occupational Fatality Day” in 2010 to bring public attention to the huge gender disparity in work-related deaths every year in the United States. “Equal Occupational Fatality Day” tells us how many years and days into the future women will be able to continue to work before they will experience the same number of occupational fatalities that occurred for men in the previous year.

'Sarah Hinkson, 37, draped herself across four seats on the Hammersmith and City line while touching herself and moaning loudly in February. 

Hinkson's hand was allegedly still down her trousers when she was arrested by police officers at King's Cross station.

He said: “I was suddenly aware of a banging noise and I thought it was something mechanical but I noticed that to my right there was a lady who was laying out across three or four seats.

"She was banging her foot against the seat or the glass which was making the noise.'
