UK: Feminist accused of threatening to ‘thump’ trans activists

Article here. Excerpt:

'A private prosecution was launched against Linda Bellos, 67, after she allegedly made the statement at an event in York, on November 8, last year.

The Labour activist, who is a vocal opponent of transgender reforms, reportedly told the ‘We Need To Talk About The GRA’ (Gender Recognition Act) event: ‘Having born two children I think I’m physiologically, and in many other senses, a female and a woman.

‘But I play football and I box, and if any one of those bastards comes near me I will take off my glasses and thump them.

‘I am quite prepared to threaten violence because it seems to me politically what they are seeking to do is piss on women.’'

Staunch feminist Clementine Ford claims straight women are better off living alone

Article here. Excerpt:

'Staunch feminist Clementine Ford claims straight women are better off living alone and inviting men 'into houses as guests occasionally'.

The bold claim comes from the hardline feminist and mother-of-one's most recent book, 'Boys Will Be Boys'.

Ford argues that boys grow up in a world of 'toxic masculinity' that allows them to do 'deeply sh***y things' and get away with it.

Australia: Should there be such a thing as a misogyny hate crime?

Article here. Excerpt:

'Australia has led much of the world when it comes to outlawing hate speech and crimes, especially when it comes to race, religion, and sexual orientation.

But what about crimes specifically targeted at women? Should our laws reflect the gendered motivations behind online abuse, rape and sexual harassment and hate speech, as is being tested in the UK? There is a strong argument it should.
Gendered crimes against women are as various as they are harmful, both physically and mentally. They include sexual assault, online abuse, upskirting, stalking or being followed, groping, threatening, aggressive or intimidating behaviour, indecent exposure and unwanted sexual advances.

These happen at all sorts of places, as noted in the research: bars and nightclubs, public transport, the workplace, parks, universities, restaurants, gyms, petrol stations, cinemas, car parks and shops.'

'Men Are Trash' vs. 'I Stand With Brett': Wild scene at the Capitol for Kavanaugh drama

Article here. Excerpt:

'Outside the Dirsken Senate Office building on Thursday morning, Cameron Mixon, a 22-year-old Georgetown Law School student was sporting a tee-shirt with the slogan: “Men Are Trash.”

“I love your shirt!” one woman told Mixon. “It’s amazing,” another agreed. By 9:30 a.m., Mixon said, about 20 people had asked to take photos next to her.

Even by the super-charged standards of American politics, passions were red lining on Capitol Hill Wednesday for the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on an allegation of a 1980s sexual assault that has placed Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination in grave danger.'

Duluth’s Femn Fest: No headliners, no hierarchies, no men

Article here. Excerpt:

'Mlinar is one of the organizers of Femn Fest, which seeks to correct the gender imbalance of contemporary music festivals to present a lineup of musicians who are women, women-identifying, genderqueer, or non-binary. Now in its second year, the fest will stretch over two days this weekend at Duluth’s Sacred Heart Music Center.

Among the performers announced are Venus DeMars, Gender Confetti, Lunch Duchess, The Von Tramps, Good Night Gold Dust, FLOWTUS, and the Nat Harvie Trio. But you won’t see these acts arranged according to importance on one of those Coachella-like graphics, with the big names dominating and the lesser known acts relegated to fine print.

“Even if we have an artist who would be considered a headliner at another event—which we do—we’re not calling anyone a headliner,” Mlinar says. “It’s a non hierarchical structure. Hierarchy, and the idea that someone is above someone else is in line with the structures that have held women back from the industry in the first place.”

Swedish Minister: Reducing Car Numbers a ‘Gender Equality Issue’ as They’re ‘Driven Mostly by Men’

Article here. Excerpt:

'Sweden’s environment minister has said reducing car numbers is a feminist issue as well as a matter of meeting carbon emissions targets, saying male drivers occupy space in Swedish cities ‘at women’s expense’.
Lamenting that urban planning committees have ‘put the car on a pedestal’ in the last 50 years, Karolina Skog insisted it’s vital that cities find ways to reduce the number of cars on the road.

“The car is a flexible mode of transport, and people find it nice to travel around in their own bubble,” the minister told Göteborgs-Posten. “But the main drawback is that they’re ineffective.

“A normal car in Sweden stands still for 97 per cent of its lifetime and for every car there are eight parking spaces and many miles of road. You can’t call that effective.”'

‘It’s not the patriarchy, it’s you:’ Fox News contributor criticizes state of feminism

Article here. Excerpt:

'In a talk titled “it’s not the patriarchy, it’s you,” Fox News contributor and TV personality Rachel Campos-Duffy discussed how she found happiness as a conservative woman Wednesday evening.

The event was hosted by the Luce Society, University of Wisconsin chapter in Memorial Union.

Despite criticism toward young conservative women in today’s political climate, Campos-Duffy encouraged them to hold strong in their traditional values in the face of “angry liberal feminists.”

“I believe that a lot of conservative women’s happiness comes from refusing to follow the feminist script,” Campos-Duffy said.

The “feminist script” demonizes women who choose family over their career and refusing to join the “feminist mean girls club” will make conservative women happier, she said.

Modern feminism, she said, has done the opposite of what it set out to do: give women options. The “so-called feminist movement” isn’t really a woman’s movement.'

It’s not feminist to pour bleach on manspreaders, it’s just stupid

Article here. Excerpt:

'Did you hear the one about the Russian student who was so fed up with manspreading that she took to the subways of St Petersburg to spray diluted bleach on men’s crotches? Hilarious, right?


Look, I hate manspreading as much as the next unreasonable feminist. It’s antisocial, it’s rude, it displays an arrogant disregard for the people sitting around you. It’s a behaviour that women just wouldn’t get away with.
But — and bear with me here — even if men invade my personal space in a tragic attempt to signal to the world just how massive their penis is, I just don’t believe that terrorising men is the way to achieve feminist goals. Shocking I know.

Blogger ordered to pay millions to falsely-accused Army colonel

Article here. Excerpt:

'A jury has ordered a female blogger to pay an Army colonel she accused of rape a total of $8.4million in damages.

Susan Shannon, 52, who now lives in Everett, Washington, first alleged that she was sexually assaulted by Army Colonel David 'Wil' Riggins in 1986, while they were both cadets, on her blog in 2013.

She said she waited three decades to come forward about her experience because of the army's 'code of silence'.

But Riggins, also 52, who vehemently denied the claims, said the 'false' allegations had cost him a sparkling military career.
The decorated colonel denied all claims, telling ABC 7 On Your Side at the time: 'I did not rape Susan Shannon. I did not sexually assault Susan Shannon. Every aspect of (her) story is verifiably false.'

Mayor seeks to stop first sex doll brothel in US from opening

Article here. Excerpt:

'The mayor of Houston is exploring options in an effort to “restrict or regulate” the first so-called “robot sex brothel” in the United States that is slated to open this month in the city.

“This is not the kind of business I would like to see in Houston and certainly this is not the kind of business the City is seeking to attract,” Mayor Sylvester Turner said in an email statement to Fox News.

His office said it is not accurate to call it a "brothel," and pointed out that Yuval Gavriel, the founder of KinySdollS, calls it a showroom. Gavriel said customers can try out the merchandise.

Gavriel made the announcement last week in The Washington Examiner, telling the paper he plans to expand to 10 locations throughout the U.S. by 2020.

The company opened its first location last year near Toronto, where $60 buys a half-hour alone with a robot sex doll, according to the Examiner. The dolls start at $2,500.'

New Kavanaugh accuser claims "gang rape parties"

Article here. Excerpt:

'A woman named Julie Swetnick, who is represented by lawyer Michael Avenatti, submitted a statement to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday afternoon in which she makes a number of uncorroborated and unsubstantiated allegations of heinous criminality by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Swetnick claims she first met Kavanaugh and his friend Mark Judge sometime between 1980 and 1981 at a house party in the Washington, D.C., area and "attended well over ten house parties in the Washington, D.C. area during the years 1981-1983 where Mark Judge and Brett Kavanaugh were present."

She goes on to claim: "On numerous occasions" she witnessed Kavanaugh engage in "overly aggressive [behavior] with girls and not taking 'No' for an answer. This conduct included the fondling and grabbing of girls without their consent."
