New NYT Board member sent anti-cop, anti-men tweets

Article here. Excerpt:

'Sarah Jeong, the newest editorial board member of The New York Times, is also responsible for extensive anti-cop and anti-men tweets.

The New York Times stood by Jeong on Thursday after the internet surfaced her old racist tweets, however her full Twitter history reveals her ire was not only directed toward white people.

The NYT claimed that Jeong was “imitating” the behavior of people who harassed her online, but this does not explain why she was tweeting “fuck the police” and encouraging people to “kill all men.”

A search for “cops” and “police” on Jeong’s Twitter reveals an extensive history of anti-cop sentiment and a lack of sympathy for police who are injured on the job.
She also tweeted “fuck the police” on several occasions, including one with a gif of anime characters actually physically attacking a police officer.

In addition, Jeong repeatedly tweeted about killing men, and joked that, even if only “bad men” were killed, that would still include all men.

Man convicted of attempted homicide in spiking of girlfriend's drink with abortion pill

Article here. Excerpt:

'A Fox Cities man charged with spiking his girlfriend's drink with an abortion-inducing drug was convicted of attempted first-degree intentional homicide of an unborn child Wednesday in Outagamie County court.

The girlfriend of Manishkumar M. Patel, 45, didn't ingest the drink but miscarried weeks later.

The attempted homicide charge carries a maximum sentence of 60 years in the state prison system. Sentencing was scheduled for Oct. 9.

A host of other charges in that case and two other cases — one felony case and one misdemeanor case — were dismissed and read in as part of a plea agreement.

Patel, who was charged in 2007, forfeited a $750,000 cash bond and went on the run for nearly a decade. He was arrested in New York in January 2017.'

NYT places Sarah Jeong on Editorial Board

Article here. Excerpt:

'The New York Times’ newest editorial hire has a history of racist tweets against white people.

NYT announced on Wednesday that they hired Sarah Jeong to join their editorial board. Jeong previously wrote for the Verge and authored “The Internet of Garbage,” a book about online harassment and free speech.

Shortly after Jeong’s hire, Twitter users unearthed old tweets in which she expressed an extreme distaste for white people.

“Dumbass fucking white people marking up the internet with their opinions like dogs pissing on fire hydrants,” she tweeted in 2016.

Another tweet reads, “oh man it’s kind of sick how much joy I get from being cruel to old white men.”'

"Gender gap in pay begins with children’s allowances"

Is there any low they won't sink to? Link here. Excerpt:

'PHOENIX – Parents pay boys a weekly allowance twice as high as they give girls, according to a study from a Phoenix-area company that sells an app to track children’s chores, allowances and finances.
“Frankly, I was super-depressed at the results,” Murset said.
That the long-bemoaned gender pay gap starts early did not surprise one expert.

“These gender roles run so deep in our society that it can be hard to escape them, even in the home,” said Julia Bear, a business professor who studies negotiation and the gender pay gap at Stony Brook University in New York.

Howard Levitt: I would gladly name, shame and sue #MeToo accusers who have ulterior motives

Article here. Excerpt:

'In the #MeToo era, investigations have become de rigueur. If anything, we are in a climate of over-investigation where management, too often alleges the need to investigate so they don’t have to make necessary decisions. Employers have also neutered their own human resource departments by using outside investigators when their own trained human resource executives know the company’s culture, policies and the individuals involved far better. They can usually do a more efficient and effective job than an outsider. Companies also too often use lawyers for investigations when that only invites the affected employees to bring their own lawyers, further delaying the process. (Employees otherwise have no right to bring counsel to an investigation.)

#MeToo, please stay out of our love lives

Article here. Excerpt:

'Although the #MeToo movement has made inroads into changing workplace culture, it is unfortunately leaking into the complicated world of human mating. As the #MeToo digital mobs march into our intimate relationships, posting allegations of sexual abuse and misogyny related to male-female personal relationships, the #MeToo boundaries are getting decidedly blurry. Bad boys, jerks, and guys who didn’t know their date just wasn’t so into them are being ensnared like dolphins in a tuna net.
But here’s the other conversation no one is having. Innocent, injured babies always find each other, even when they dress up as adults. And their playground is the bed. This is not to victim-blame. And trust me, I have spent enough time on a therapy couch to know my piece in relationship dynamics. I’m only saying that we must shine a brighter light on the deeper underpinnings of adult intimate relationships. They are complicated. But they are not #MeToo.'

The first convicted child abuser was female

Article here. Excerpt:

'Mary Ellen was born in Hell’s Kitchen, NY, in March of 1864. Her father died soon after and her mother, Frances Wilson, had to seek child care arrangements. She left Mary Ellen with a family and gave them a stipend for Mary Ellen’s care. But eventually, Frances stopped visiting her daughter, the money stopped, and the family turned Mary Ellen over to the state orphanage.

She was eventually placed in a foster home with two parents, one of whom died soon after. The foster mom remarried a man named Francis Connolly and became Mrs. Mary Connolly. Shortly thereafter, they moved to 41st Street in New York. Neighbors became concerned because they thought Mary Ellen was being abused. They asked Methodist missionary Etta Angell Wheeler to check on her under the pretense of welcoming them into the neighborhood and to ask them to check on a bedridden neighbor from time to time.

UK: Tommy Robinson released

Article here. Dreadful days when in a western nation people actually need to celebrate a man being released after he was arrested for taking a picture of a courthouse to report on its proceedings *from the outside of the courthouse*. Excerpt:

'TOMMY Robinson thanked his supporters as he walked free from prison today after a judge overturned his conviction for contempt of court.

The English Defence League founder (EDL) hugged friends before he was led from Onley Prison by a friend this afternoon.

Giving only a brief statement, Robinson said: "I want to thank the British public for all their support." He then sped away from the scene in a waiting car.

On the Free Tommy Robinson Facebook page a post said he was "over the moon" about the ruling and will be going on holiday with his family.

The Facebook post said: "Tommy just called his family from prison to ask what the outcome was - he said prisoners were shouting that he was going home but he did not want to believe them. He is over the moon."

UVA President Who Oversaw Rolling Stone Hoax Leaves Office

Article here. Excerpt:

'It’s been nearly four years since Rolling Stone magazine published its disastrous article about an alleged gang-rape at the University of Virginia. The story was so unbelievably fake (the main accused rapist didn’t even exist!) that the magazine was forced to settle three lawsuits brought by those who had been harmed by the article.

The president of UVA at the time of the hoax, Teresa Sullivan, leaves office on Tuesday, and has naturally provided some historical revisions as to her role in the debacle.

Feminism is the last thing in the world boys need

Article here. Excerpt:

'The sheer degree of havoc feminists cause never ceases to amaze me, nor does their arrogance and condescension. In a ridiculous piece in the The New York Times titled “What Feminists Can Do for Boys,” feminist author Jessica Valenti claims that those who share her ideology can help boys become men.

I cannot think of a more preposterous argument. Feminism is a major cause of the predicament boys and men now face. In what world could it be the remedy?

What modern feminists want is to rid the world of traditional masculinity, pure and simple. They’re consumed with the unwarranted and bogus notion that men in their natural state are prone to oppress women and that the male drive to provide and protect is evidence of said oppression.'

UK: Woman who had sex with schoolboy, 13, told by judge not to invite 'teen lads around for parties'

Article here. "Just don't do that. No go on, off with you." It's unreal, but there it is. Excerpt:

'A woman convicted of having sex with a 13-year-old schoolboy has avoided a jail term.

And Jordan Lightfoot was warned by Judge David Hale not to invite teenage boys around for a party.

Lightfoot, of Edith Parc Rhyl, was found guilty of three charges of sexual activity with the 13-year-old boy, and also sexual activity by touching with a boy of 15, and causing or inciting the elder boy to engage in sexual activity.

She was 19 at the time of the offences and had sex with the younger boy at her home in the summer of 2016, a jury heard.

The offences came to light when the boy’s mother found text messages on his mobile phone.

After considering a pre-sentence report Judge Hale imposed an 18 month jail sentence, suspended for two years, with 50 days of rehabilitation activity.

Duke Settles With Soccer Player Accused Of Sexual Assault

'Duke University has settled with a student who had been suspended for alleged sexual assault just before a trial over his lawsuit was about to begin, The Daily Wire has learned. This is the second time in six months that Duke has made such a settlement just before a trial.

Ciaran McKenna had his name dragged through the mud after a female student he met during his freshman year, when he was still 17, accused him of sexually assaulting her, according to The Duke Chronicle. The two had met at a bar on November 14, 2015, and began kissing as they danced together. The female student — who is not named in legal documents because she is not being sued — then invited McKenna back to her room, allegedly just to continue making out.

Swedish opera singer attacks #metoo mob mentality

Article here. Excerpt:

'Swedish mezzo-soprano Anne Sofie von Otter is one of the world’s leading opera singers but, since March, also the world’s most prominent #metoo widow.

Her husband, Benny Fredriksson, took his life after Sweden’s Aftonbladet printed anonymous accusations that he was a “little Hitler” who bullied and terrorised staff during his 16 years as head of Stockholm’s Kulturhuset Stadsteatern, the city’s leading arts and culture centre.

The newspaper interviewed 40 people who claimed he had turned the centre into his own personal “dictatorship”, forced women to rehearse naked and pressed a woman to either have an abortion or forfeit a role.

The 58-year-old resigned in December but the campaign continued against him and in March, while accompanying his wife on a singing tour in Australia, he took his own life.'
