Biden defends his behavior with women

Article here. Excerpt:

'Former Vice President Joe Biden said Sunday he doesn’t believe he ever acted inappropriately toward women but will “listen respectfully” to suggestions he did.

Biden, who is deciding whether to join the 2020 presidential race, released a new statement in response to allegations from a Nevada politician that he kissed her on the back of the head in 2014 and made her uncomfortable.

“In my many years on the campaign trail and in public life, I have offered countless handshakes, hugs, expressions of affection, support and comfort. And not once — never — did I believe I acted inappropriately,” he said. “If it is suggested I did so, I will listen respectfully. But it was never my intention.”

The allegation was made in a New York Magazine article written by Lucy Flores, a former Nevada state representative and the 2014 Democratic nominee for Nevada lieutenant governor.

NBA player accused of rape, FBI investigating extortion

Article here. Excerpt:

'An attorney for Kristaps Porzingis acknowledged Saturday that a woman has accused the NBA star of rape, but says the Dallas Mavericks forward "unequivocally" denies the allegation.

Lawyer Roland Riopelle said the claim against the player was part of an extortion attempt that is being investigated by the FBI.

Citing unidentified law enforcement officials, the New York Post and other news organizations reported earlier that a woman went to police Thursday and said Porzingis raped her in his Manhattan apartment last year while he was playing for the Knicks.

NYPD officials declined to comment.

While playing for the Knicks last year, Porzingis suffered a major knee injury during a game at Madison Square Garden against the Milwaukee Bucks that the Knicks lost. He then went home and invited the woman to his luxury Manhattan apartment where she alleges she was sexually assaulted, the Post said the woman told police.'

DeVos Title IX Lawsuit Tossed

Article here. Excerpt:

'Education Secretary Betsy DeVos’ revisions to Obama-era guidance on campus sexual assault will likely stand now that a federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit challenging them.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Jacqueline Corley said plaintiffs SurvJustice and two other victims’ rights groups did not do enough to demonstrate that those directly affected by the U.S. Department of Education’s 2017 policy revision couldn’t have filed lawsuits on their own behalf.

“Defendants argue that plaintiffs’ asserted hindrances are insufficient to invoke third-party standing because it is possible for the third party to raise the equal protection claim themselves, and there is evidence that third parties in fact have raised such claims,” Corley wrote in a 17-page decision. “The court agrees.”

SurvJustice sued on behalf of sexual assault victims to protect them from retaliation, the potential loss of privacy and safety, and the possibility that they would be traumatized again.'

"Sex drought" or "Sex strike"?

Article here. I wonder if it's less a drought and more a strike. For a lot of Millenial men I'd wager listening to feminist babblings is too high a price to pay for a few minutes of pussy once a week. Excerpt:

'The share of U.S. adults reporting no sex in the past year reached an all-time high in 2018, underscoring a three-decade trend line marked by an aging population and higher numbers of unattached people.

But among the 23 percent of adults — or nearly 1 in 4 — who spent the year in a celibate state, a much larger than expected number of them were twentysomething men, according to the latest data from the General Social Survey.

Former Nevada lawmaker accuses Biden of inappropriate kiss

Article here. Yep, I admit, I was waiting for it. Cometh now the floodeth of reports of Crazy VAWA Joe The Squeezer handling, touching, kissing, and generally feeling up women as he has oft been even photographed doing. The Dem politicos will of course have fits trying to keep a lid on it. We'll see how they do. Excerpt:

'Lucy Flores, the former Democratic nominee for Nevada lieutenant governor, on Friday accused former Vice President Joe Biden of what she described as an inappropriate encounter when he campaigned for her in 2014.

Writing in “The Cut,” Flores said she was standing at the side of the stage at a campaign rally when she felt Biden approach her from behind and lean in to smell her hair.

“He proceeded to plant a big slow kiss on the back of my head,” Flores wrote. “My brain couldn’t process what was happening. I was embarrassed. I was shocked. I was confused.”

Down with feelgood feminist victimhood

Article here. Excerpt:

'You have to admire Caroline Criado-Perez. She may have had the best education money can buy. She may live in a society falling over itself to provide opportunities for well-bred, well-educated women, such as all-women parliamentary shortlists or women-only scholarships. Yet none of this deters the brave campaigner against sexist bank notes and statues in her efforts to prove that women are still oppressed.

Life is tough for professional feminists. You have to go on television and explain how cartoons like Fireman Sam put three-year-old girls off entering the fire service. You have to make public the misery women endure from phones that are too big for ladies’ dainty hands and air conditioning set to a male body temperature. You might pick up a salary working for a pressure group like the Fawcett Society or UK Feminista, but, like Everyday Sexism’s Laura Bates, you still have to travel the country to speak in school assemblies. And, like Criado-Perez, you have to promote your latest book.

UK: Woman loses appeal over false rape accusation conviction

Article here. Excerpt:

'An appeal court has backed the 10-year jail term given to a fantasist who made false rape allegations against a series of men and thrown out her claims she was wrongly convicted. 

Jemma Beale , from Bedfont, west London, was handed the prison sentence for perverting the course of justice and perjury after she made fake sex attack claims against 15 men - one of whom was jailed for two years and another fled the country.

The 27-year-old however continues to protest her innocence and today asked senior judges to overturn her conviction.

Her lawyers told the Court of Appeal that the judge hadn't warned the jury about the 'myths and stereotypes' which swirl around false rape claim cases. 

They also claimed, even if she was guilty, she should have been given a shorter sentence because she had been abused as a child.

Rapper Cardi B Admits To Drugging And Robbing Men She Lured To Hotel With Promised Sex

Article here. Excerpt:

'A three-year-old video of rapper Cardi B on Instagram Live recently resurfaced online where the artist admits that she used to drug and rob men whom she would lure to a hotel room with the promise of sex. Cardi B, whose real name is Belcalis Marlenis Almanzar, said it was a necessary practice to survive when she worked as a stripper.
The shocking video prompted a #SurvivingCardiB hashtag on social media, a reference to alleged sexual abuse committed by R&B singer R. Kelly recently examined in a Lifetime documentary called "Surviving R. Kelly."

One woman noted that Cardi B’s admission would be headline news if she were a man. "Why isn’t anyone talking about [Cardi B] and her drugging men then robbing them," she wrote. "Like if this were a man for example… this would be a different story."'

Professor who challenges women-only programs threatens to sue student government for defaming him

'A professor at the University of Michigan-Flint has threatened legal action against the student government after it publicly accused him of “hate and bigotry.”

Mark Perry is also deploying the university’s Bias Response Team against members of the student government, which may be faster than the courts in bringing them to heel.

The dispute concerns Perry’s Title IX complaint against Wayne State University, a public institution in Detroit, for serving as “venue sponsor” of a tech bootcamp limited to black girls last summer.

He first filed an internal complaint with the university and then with the Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights, which agreed to conduct an investigation, according to documents obtained by student newspaper The South End.'

Malawians blasts the US: ‘We don’t need aid for circumcision’

Article here. Excerpt:

'Malawians have questioned the motives of the US and other Western NGOs that are promoting circumcision despite evidence showing that the questionable initiative does not reduce HIV as claimed. Vetting their anger and frustrations on social media, the people took to task the US for “prioritizing sex” and not real development.

The US announced a $6.8 million (K3.8 billion) aid to support male circumcision which the US Ambassador to Malawi, Virginia Palmer, said has “has potential” to curb the spread of HIV.

But all the comments that Malawi24 monitored on a story published by one of the local online publications expressed dismay at the focus of the aid, with many hinting that circumcision is not an effective means to fighting the spread of HIV.'

‘American Political Thought’ course at CU Denver removes all white men from curriculum

Article here. Next thing it'll be Greek philosophy with no white men allowed in it. It'll be the world's shortest book. Excerpt:

'I can clearly recall the first day of class a few semesters ago when I eagerly began a course called “American Political Thought” at the University of Colorado, Denver.

My excitement quickly soured, however, after Professor Chad Shomura explained to the students in the room that most traditional “American Political Thought” courses are too focused on the achievements of white men.

As a consequence, he told us he had removed every single white male and their theoretical perspectives from the entire course curriculum.

This is echoed in the syllabus:

Joe Biden blames 'white man's culture' for sexual assaults: 'It's got to change'

Article here. Excerpt:

'Former Vice President Joseph R. Biden on Tuesday blamed “white man’s culture” for allowing sexual assaults on women to persist in America.

“It’s the culture, a white man’s culture. It’s got to change,” Mr. Biden said an award ceremony for students working to end rape on college campuses.

He made the remark as he prepares to enter a crowded Democratic presidential race that includes several women and black hopefuls.

Mr. Biden said that the recent sexual assault allegations aired at confirmation hearings for Supreme Court Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh showed that very little had changed since Anita Hill made similar allegations during Justice Clarence Thomas’ confirmation hearings in 1991.'

Pakistan: Sending ‘good morning’ texts to women is also harassment, says Kashmala Tariq

Article here. Excerpt:

'Federal Ombudsperson for Protection Against Harassment (FOSPAH) at workplaces, Kashmala Tariq, said on Tuesday that sending ‘good morning’ text messages to women at the work place is also considered harassment.

She was addressing a Chamber of Commerce and Industry (RCCI) in Rawalpindi on ‘Women’s Day’.

“I have received complaints in which peons have also harassed women at offices,” she said.

Tariq said that harassment is not only limited to being sexual, but can be of any form.

“If someone constantly asks you out for tea, it is also a kind of harassment,” said the FOSPAH.

She said that there should be a harassment committee in every institution and CCTV cameras should be installed everywhere at an office.'
