Australia: "Tampon tax to go"

Link here. Australian women don't even want to make this modest contribution to all the health and social services state governments provide exclusively for them, with all consumers set to subsidise the elaborate packaging and marketing of women's sanitary products. Excerpt:

'After an 18-year campaign, the 10 per cent tax on tampons and pads will be removed after states and territories agreed to make sanitary products exempt from the GST.

Treasurers met this morning to discuss the matter and have unanimously agreed to pass the Federal Government's proposal.

The GST on these products has long been described as unfair because products including condoms and Viagra are exempt.'

Georgetown Issues Statement Backing Professor Who Said White Republican Men Should Be Murdered, Castrated

Article here. Excerpt:

'"The views of faculty members expressed in their private capacities are their own and not the views of the University. Our policy does not prohibit speech based on the person presenting ideas or the content of those ideas, even when those ideas may be difficult, controversial or objectionable," University spokesman Matt Hill told Western Journal by email.

Hill added, "While faculty members may exercise freedom of speech, we expect that their classrooms and interaction with students be free of bias and geared toward thoughtful, respectful dialogue."

It seems painfully obvious that Fair might have a tough go at treating all her students in an unbiased manner and engaging in a "thoughtful, respectful dialogue" seeing as how she openly advocates for the murder of those she disagrees with and dons "Abort Trump" and "F*** Trump" stickers at public speaking events.'

Woman Claimed 4 Dentists Raped Her; Video Evidence Results In Dropped Charges

Article here. Excerpt:

'Prosecutors for the state of Nevada dropped all charges that were filed against four men — three of whom are brothers — after a woman falsely accused them of raping her in late July.

The unnamed woman claimed that Ali Badkoobehi, Poria Edalat, Saman Edalat and Sina Edalat had repeatedly raped her in a hotel suite at the Wynn after she met one of the men at the hotel bar, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported. She told investigators that Badkoobehi pushed her into a chair and then forced himself on top of her before the three other men entered the suite and took turns raping her. According to the report, the woman said she tried to resist, "but she was too intoxicated and overwhelmed because of how many people were attacking her and she could not fight back."

The Dilemma of the Liberal White Male in an Age of Identity Politics

Article here. Excerpt:

'In short, the ideal society as I see it is one in which we’re all free to express who we are without facing adversity or a lack of opportunity because of factors we can’t control, such as race, sex, gender, sexuality, religion, creed, etc.

And while I recognize the privilege I enjoy as a white man in this society, something deeply disturbing is happening underneath all the noise and bullshit that’s been inherent in our news cycles since Donald Trump was elected president.

It’s this: people on the left — especially women and people of color — have become quite comfortable expressing misandry (the hate of men) and/or racism — in this case toward white people.

A few points if I may:

Satire: "How To Be A Good Male Feminist"

Article here. Excerpt:

'The following is satirical.

Some of you men out there are probably asking yourself: “How can I be a good male feminist?” Some of you men are probably asking yourself: “How can I find a woman who will stick a lit cigarette into my private parts while whipping me with barbed wire?” There’s no accounting for people’s tastes.

But for those of you men who want to be better feminists — for some reason — here are a couple of handy tips.

If you want to be a good male feminist, remember: always listen to women when they’re blaming you for something. This will save you from ever having to do anything else but listen to women blaming you for something.

If you want to be a good male feminist, never accuse women of being irrational and hysterical but instead just stand quietly while they scream nonsense at you, and then do whatever they tell you.'

Georgetown prof tweets feminists should kill white men in the Senate

Article here. Excerpt:

'Georgetown Professor C. Christine Fair tweeted over the weekend that “entitled white men” should have their corpses castrated and then fed to pigs.

Fair, an associate professor in Georgetown’s Security Studies program, tweeted, “Look at thus [sic] chorus of entitled white men justifying a serial rapist’s arrogated entitlement.”

Fair linked to a video of Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham defending Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh from allegations of sexual assault from when the judge was in high school.

“All of them deserve miserable deaths while feminists laugh as they take their last gasps,” Fair wrote. “Bonus: we castrate their corpses and feed them to swine? Yes.”'

Woman refused sex, knifes man in face

Article here. People react at their worst when their delusions are challenged. Many women think two things are true which are not: they can have any man they want any time and he will eagerly bang her. Neither are true. Excerpt:

'The combination of lust, liquor and a large kitchen utensil landed a Vero Beach woman in jail on charges of felony battery with a deadly weapon, cops say.

An arrest report says when a Vero Beach cop showed up at the apartment that 27-year-old Katherine Nieves Tavarez shares with live-in boyfriend Amaury Vazquez Carrero, Nieves Tavarez “answered the door with blood on her clothing and blood on her hands.”

Then the officer saw Vazquez Carrero “fall to the floor with blood covering his face.” When asked what happened, he replied, “she hit me with a knife” and “I can’t see.”

He told officers Nieves Tavarez had been drinking before she approached him early Thursday as he sat on the couch with a request for sex. His repeated refusals, he said, brought the wrath of her yelling. He said he went out to the patio.'

UK: Feminists are just ‘whining’ for ‘special privileges’, says Ann Widdecombe

Article here. Excerpt:

'Ann Widdecombe has said women have never had it so good as she slammed feminists for wanting ‘special privileges’.

The former Tory MP said we are in the age of ‘whine’ and ‘whinge’ and attacked women for saying they have it harder than men.

Writing in the Radio Times, the 70-year-old said: ‘Until the 1970s it was lawful for employers to advertise a job with two rates of pay, one for men and one for women.
'The feminists of those years yelled that all we wanted was equality. Now that has turned into a pathetic whine for special privileges. No, thanks, sisters. I’ll do what I’ve always done and compete on merit.’

The former Celebrity Big Brother and Strictly Come Dancing contestant said it was hard to see what some women complain about when Britain has its second female Prime Minister and the Metropolitan Police is being run by a woman for the first time.'

California has a new law: No more all-male boards

Article here. Excerpt:

'Companies headquartered in California can no longer have all-male boards.

That's according to a new law, enacted Sunday, which requires publicly traded firms in the state to place at least one woman on their board of directors by the end of 2019 — or face a penalty.

It also requires companies with five directors to add two women by the end of 2021, and companies with six or more directors to add at least three more women by the end of the same year.
But setting quotas can be controversial, Vicki W. Kramer, lead author of the landmark 2006 study, "Critical Mass on Corporate Boards," told CNN last month. Opponents argue that pressure from quotas will lead to unqualified female members and potential discrimination against male candidates.'

UK: Man lets in cat, wife assaults him

Article here. Excerpt:

'After sixty years of controlling behaviour and physical violence, Jim changed his blood-stained shirt and walked back to his wife who was making them a coffee after smashing him in the face.

He had asked her to let the cat in while he cut the grass outside.

But instead of turning left to the kitchen, he turned right, walked out of the door and kept on walking away from his life of abuse.

With only the clothes he wore, he didn't look back, and at the age of 78, he started his life again.

Jim is one of a growing number of men telling other men it is okay to admit to being abused by women.'

Ann Coulter: No More Mr. White Guy

Article here. Ann can be funny and also on point. Not always, but a fair bit of the time. Excerpt:

'“They know the optics of 11 white men questioning Dr. Ford ... will be so harmful and so damaging to the GOP.” -- Areva Martin, CNN legal analyst

“They understand that you have all of these white men who would be questioning this woman ... the optics of it would look terrible.” -- Gloria Borger, CNN chief political analyst

“Women across this nation should be outraged at what these white men senators are doing to this woman.” -- Rep. John Garamendi, D-Calif.
Let me begin by saying these commentators are making a brilliant and totally ORIGINAL point, the plain truth of which is outshone only by, as I’ve said, its sheer no-one-has-ever-made-that-observation-before-ness.

Female Host Slams Idea Women Should Be Unconditionally Believed, Crowd Boos Her

Article here. Excerpt:

'CRTV host Allie Beth Stuckey was booed during the 2018 Texas Tribune Festival in Austin, Texas after she said that unconditionally believing all women is unjust while she defended Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

"I'm devastated to see a man's life almost in ruins based on uncorroborated and unsubstantiated allegations," Stuckey told the audience. "I'm devastated by the thought of a world in which people are guilty until proven innocent and the burden of proof is on the accused."

"I listened to both of their testimonies and while I think both are believable, I think only Kavanaugh is credible," Stuckey continued. "He's the only one that has any substantiation for anything that he said; he's the only one with any corroboration; he's the only one who has gone through six FBI background checks; the only one that has any evidence for anything that he is saying and witnesses to back up what he's saying."
The crowd started to boo.

Want Equality? Make New Dads Stay Home

'More than a third of American firms offer at least some paid maternity leave, and an increasing number of them are extending such benefits to new dads as well. But paternity leave is useless if men don’t take it. A 2018 Deloitte survey of more than 1,000 men found that a third worried that taking a leave would hurt their careers, and more than half feared it would signal that they weren’t serious about their jobs. A 2017 Pew survey found that the median paternity leave was just one week. New moms, meanwhile, typically take whatever time they can get.

Teacher Acquitted of Having Sex With Student Finds Work as a Waitress

Article here. Excerpt:

'A former high school teacher in Maine is now working as a waitress after she was wrongly accused of having sex with a student.

Jill LaMontagne, a married mother of two, was a health teacher at Kennebunk High School.

Last year, the 30-year-old’s world was shaken after a 17-year-old student came forward to claim they had engaged in a sexual relationship while she was tutoring him.

She was forced to resign and was criminally charged with 14 offenses.

“The way people in public interpret that is like, 'Oh, she's gotta to be guilty, 14 counts,'” she told Inside Edition.

At the trial, the teen testified that he and LaMontagne had sex in her classroom and home. But the jury questioned his credibility, and after deliberating for just two hours, they returned with a not guilty verdict.

“I had to hold it in, if needed to hear all 14 before I could release the floodgates,” she said of her acquittal and vindication.
