Teacher blows student repeatedly, gets no jail time, keeps license

Article here.

'A Bronx high school teacher who admitted to performing oral sex on her 14-year-old student won’t face jail time — and she might even return to the classroom.

Dori Myers, 30, last month pleaded guilty to criminal sex act for the Nov. 2016 incident at her former workplace, New School for Leadership and the Arts in Kingsbridge, where she taught social studies.

Myers’ heinous crime, which reportedly happened multiple times, was discovered after another teacher found out by way of the victim’s friend.

On Wednesday, Judge Michael Obus sentenced the woman to 10 years' probation and found her to be a Level 1 sex offender. Prosecutors had asked the judge to sentence Myers to a minimum of two years in prison.

As part of her plea agreement at Manhattan Criminal Court, Myers also got to keep her teaching certificate.'

Italy: Sex doll brothel closed by police two weeks after opening

Article here. Excerpt:

'A SEX robot brothel in Italy has been shut down by police less than two weeks after it opened.

Lumidolls latest bordello in Turin was closed after alleged infringements of Italian property law, Italian media reports.

The closure comes after the firm’s second brothel in Barcelona was forced to move to a new location after the building's landlord cancelled the lease.

Lumidolls also has a brothel in Moscow, Russia, and the firm has plans to open other sex dens across the world.

It is believed Italian cops raided the Turin brothel after checks showed it was not legally allowed to run hospitality on the premises, Ansa reports.

Hygiene authorities are now carrying out an investigation to see if the firm’s doll cleaning met all standards.

Lumidolls owner Sergi Prieto previously told Daily Star: “As you know in Italy, prostitution is 100% legal.

“Customers will have the option at Lumidolls Torino to have new sexual experiences in a safe and secure place.”

Commentary: The ‘Big Man on Campus’ soon to be a mere shadow

Article here. Excerpt:

'When discussed, the quick visceral reaction by female progressives, among others, is something such as “Tough. These privileged males are getting their comeuppance; it is our turn.”

Additionally, it is understandable not to expect concern over a male’s station in life with the steady beats of “this is the year of the women;” “Let’s break the glass ceiling;” pay disparity; and there are not enough women working in (fill in the blank occupation).

Such a response in the long run, does not bode well for any of us. For what these males don’t have, they cannot give back — to women, to families, to the economy or to public discourse. Even worse, disaffected men in any community portends a range of social problems.

Career Fair for Women in the Military Accused of Discriminating Against Men

Article here. Excerpt:

'A men’s rights organization has threatened to sue the City and County of San Diego for participating in an upcoming job fair event for female military members.

The National Coalition For Men (NCFM) sent a letter on Tuesday asking organizers to postpone the “San Diego Military Women Careers Event.” The event is planned for Friday, September 14 on Naval Base San Diego.

Military Inclusion, the group that organized the career fair, is promoting the event for “women veterans, active duty women and spouses.”

But in its letter to San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer and other officials, the NCFM argues that the “women-only job fair” violates the civil rights of male service members and male spouses of women in the military.

“I think it’s disgusting that they have an event strictly for women,” NCFM President Harry Crouch told NBC 7 Investigates. “Why do we have to target less than ten percent of the military population? It makes no sense to me.”'

OCR Investigating ‘Financial Discrimination’ Against Men at Tulane

Article here. Excerpt:

'The United States Department of Education has launched a Title IX investigation into Tulane University amid allegations the school engages in "financial discrimination" against male students and prospective applicants.

According to an August 20 letter obtained by PJ Media, the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) has agreed to investigate whether six female-only scholarships violate Title IX, the 1972 federal law that prohibits universities from discrimination due to sex.

Scholarships under investigation include the Landor Lewis and Shirley Gauff Awards, the Grace Hopper Celebration Award, and the school’s Summer Internship Funding Grant,which offers up to $2,000 annually for female students to take on unpaid internships.

The full scope of "financial discrimination" by Tulane is unknown. The six scholarships listed in the Title IX complaint may only comprise a small fraction of all female-only scholarships at the school, as private universities typically do not list all scholarships on their website.

“Women Have It Better,” Admits Female Journalist

Article here. Excerpt:

'woman,” goes the old feminist rallying cry, “hear me roar.” But “hear me whine” may be more accurate, is the message of writer Karol Markowicz. Inspired by Democrat Senator Kamala Harris’ grandstanding at the Brett Kavanaugh hearings, Markowicz just penned a New York Post piece titled “‘Feminist’ denial on all the ways women have it better” — and the dogma she challenges can cause spontaneous bra-burner combustion.

Markowicz opens saying how wonderful it is when feminist arguments are poorly reasoned and self-refuting. She then goes on to relate current Exhibit A, writing, “In a widely shared moment late last week, Sen. Kamala Harris asked Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, ‘Can you think of any laws that give government the power to make decisions about the male body?’”

Dear Feminists: Why men matter

Article here. Excerpt:

'Today’s brand of feminism is vastly different from your mother or grandmother’s feminism. What was once a heroic and just crusade has been hijacked by far-left activists who then metastasized the movement into one of revenge, rage, and repugnance. The hallmarks of 2018 feminism – shouting your abortion, blaming sexism for all your problems, and looking up to alleged comedian Amy Schumer as a role model – are only hurting females everywhere, not helping the cause – or society.

Thankfully, a growing number of women, witnessing the tragic, repulsive, and intellectually insolvent developments in real-time, are rejecting the feminist label.

Prominent veterinarian says men must be deliberate about promoting gender equality

Article here. Excerpt:

'Dr. Douglas G. Aspros takes the lack of female leadership in veterinary medicine personally.

Raised by a mother who worked most of her life as a teletype machine operator, educated at progressive New York institutions where male and female students were treated equally, and inspired by a female member of a Nobel Prize–winning research team, Dr. Aspros spent his early years unaware of gender bias.
...
Women have made up more than 50 percent of veterinary classes since 1986. They currently comprise 60 percent of the veterinary profession and 80 percent of veterinary students, according to Dr. Aspros. Yet the people at the highest levels of veterinary leadership are predominantly male.'

CMT Honors Only Women at Annual Artists of the Year Show

Article here. Excerpt:

'CMT is changing their Artists of the Year show to honor only women, including Carrie Underwood, Miranda Lambert, Kelsea Ballerini, Maren Morris, Karen Fairchild and Kimberly Schlapman of Little Big Town and Hillary Scott of Lady Antebellum.

The move comes as female artists in the genre have been outspoken about the lack of opportunities for them. Women have been shut out of nominations for major country awards, such as CMA's entertainer of the year category for two years in a row, and men overwhelmingly dominate country radio charts.

CMT senior vice president of music and talent Leslie Fram said she hopes dedicating the entire show to women in country music — past, present and future — will spark a "much-needed change in the industry." The show airs on CMT on Oct. 17 at 8 p.m. Eastern/Pacific.'

Sperm Count Zero

A GQ article actual men may want to read here. Excerpt:

'Men are doomed. Everybody knows this. We're obviously all doomed, the women too, everybody in general, just a waiting game until one or another of the stupid things our stupid species is up to finally gets us. But as it turns out, no surprise: men first. Second instance of no surprise: We're going to take the women down with us.

There has always been evidence that men, throughout life, are at higher risk of early death—from the beginning, a higher male incidence of Death by Mastodon Stomping, a higher incidence of Spiked Club to the Brainpan, a statistically significant disparity between how many men and how many women die of Accidentally Shooting Themselves in the Face or Getting Really Fat and Having a Heart Attack.

Should We Still Cite the Scholarship of Serial Harassers and Sexists?

Article here. Excerpt:

'Here’s a question we haven’t asked about structural sexism in academe: Do we still keep citing the scholarship of serial harassers and sexists? Within their institutions, they may finally get the fate due to them (or not). But their citational legacy will live on, sometimes even in the form of the pro-forma citations that reviewers expect to see in a manuscript, and ask for if they don’t.

And for those men whose academic sexism hasn’t risen to the level of actionable correction, and very likely won’t — while they continue ignoring female scholars and belittling their work on a daily basis — their reputation overall will remain clean. A serial sexist is unlikely to cite the work of female scholars, but if he is a predominant voice in your field or subfield, there is no way for you to avoid having to continue to build his academic reputation through citations, even if you would like to avoid doing so.'

Cali seeks to fine companies without female Board members

Article here. Google the first paragraph text to jump the paywall. Excerpt:

'To fix the stubbornly low numbers of women serving on corporate boards, investors have tried to pressure companies to add more female directors. Lawmakers have pushed to make boards report their diversity statistics and have passed resolutions urging companies to add more female directors voluntarily. Start-ups have curated lists of qualified, director-approved female candidates.

But now California has a new tactic: Force boards to hire women — and levy monetary fines if they don't.

The state legislature recently passed a bill that would require every publicly traded company with its principal offices in California to have at least one woman on its board by the end of 2019. The bill, which is opposed by many business groups and could face legal challenges, is waiting for Gov. Jerry Brown's signature.'

Article here. If I recall right here in the US it is unlawful to take ova from a dead woman's body and use them to create a baby unless she has specifically permitted it in writing prior to her death. Any lawyers out there who can chime in? Excerpt:

The couple were left devastated after their only child was killed in a motorcycle crash and seemingly ended their chance of becoming grandparents.

But the pair, who are in their 50s, were reportedly desperate for an heir decided to harvest the 26-year-old's sperm, which was frozen and exported to the US, bypassing strict laws in the UK.

Their grandson is now three and is believed to be living with them in Britain in a case that highlights ethical and legal concerns.
