Australia: Paper stands to defend women-only parking spaces

Article here. Excerpt:

'Parking spaces for females only have sparked new claims they are sexist.

The City of Perth council has designated 28 spots in the CBD as 'reserved for female drivers'.

Outraged motorists have claimed the parking spaces discriminate against men, and perpetuate the myth that women are bad drivers.

The 28 female-only parking bays are fitted out with brighter lights, emergency help buttons and situated near exits to assist in creating a safer environment for female patrons, City of Perth chief executive Martin Mileham said.

Some drivers have been quick to mention female privilege and question whether these prime spots impact the elderly, disabled, or parents with prams.

But others say the statistics speak for themselves, and insist safety is often a serious concern for women in dark, enclosed parking garages.'

Female Privilege: Ruining A Man's Life With An Accusation

Article here. Excerpt:

'Male privilege. We've heard it time and again from the Left. The United States — the freest country on the planet — is run by a shadowy Patriarchy in which men get a leg up with a wink and the nod while women get raped on college campuses at astronomical rates and implicitly dismissed.

But this is untrue. Alternatively, may I suggest to you "female privilege" (to intentionally appropriate a term from the Left): the power a woman has to ruin a man's life with a mere allegation.

The latest politically-motivated shenanigans by Democrats surrounding the circus-like confirmation process of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh are a distilled example of this, though thus far incomplete.

The effort to destroy Brett Kavanaugh looks like a revenge attack on a civilization deemed too male

Article here. Excerpt:

'If Supreme Court Justice William Brennan were posthumously discovered to have aggressively groped a girl once in high school, should that fact discredit his landmark opinions expanding press freedom, legal protections for criminal defendants, and voting and welfare rights? Would it have been better for the country, from a liberal perspective, if Brennan’s judicial career had been derailed from the start? What about Justice John Marshall Harlan, whose groundbreaking 1896 dissent from the majority opinion in Plessy v. Ferguson declared that the Constitution was “color-blind” and rejected state-sponsored segregation? If Harlan had once jumped on a girl as a 17-year-old, should that one-time outbreak of boorish adolescent male hormones efface his contributions as a public thinker?

When Every Boy Is Guilty, Every Girl Becomes a Monster

Article here. Excerpt:

'I have a problem when I get angry. The problem is that I’ve long ago learned – particularly in dealing with traditional publishers – to get depressed instead of letting myself go berserk. Mostly because when you’re dealing with publishers they’re not near enough to vent your berserker on, so you just end up hurting yourself. (Whoever said stress is the feeling you get when you can’t strangle someone who righteously deserves it was right on the money.)

Lately, I’ve been getting deeply, profoundly depressed, which is why I’ve been so silent. (Yes, post three on how to write short stories is on the way.)

So what kind of story to believe?

IMO, this is the kind of story one may be inclined to believe is *likely* to be true. Corroboration is still required. However I am inclined to believe the accusers. One may feel that they were far from total innocent fawns and I agree they were. However that doesn't mitigate the alleged behavior of the accused. That I am inclined to believe them doesn't vacate the need for corroboration however but it looks like they can provide it. Fellow MRAs, please comment. What is your opinion? Excerpt:

'Veteran professors at the Manhattan school renowned for training future crime-fighters ran a lawless den of depravity called “the swamp,” where they allegedly used and sold drugs, and “pimped” out and sexually preyed on students, according to two women at the center of a widening scandal at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice.

The shocking allegations are now under criminal probe by the Manhattan District Attorney’s office and the state Inspector General, The Post has learned.

Urge Northeastern University to Sanction Dr. Suzanna Danuta Walters

Article here. Excerpt:

'On June 8th, 2018, Dr. Suzanna Danuta Walters - professor of Sociology and director of the Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program at Northeastern University, and editor of the Gender Studies journal Signs - published an opinion piece in The Washington Post entitled "Why Can't We Hate Men?" The title of this article immediately struck me as deeply offensive, but having earned my B.A. in Literary Studies, I am well acquainted with the technique of authors and journalists who employ shocking and/or hyperbolic headlines or titles simply to hook their audience. Thus, I decided to give Dr. Walters the benefit of the doubt and read the article.

Mark Reason: Serena's sexism reflects America's culture of misandry

Article here. Excerpt:

'North America is the country where some women have gone on a long feminist march to misandry and it is poisoning the culture. American newspapers now routinely give women a platform to publish the most vile man-hating stuff in the name of feminism.

Suzanna Danuta Walters, a sociology professor and editor of the "gender studies journal" Sign, wrote in the Washington Post, "It seems logical to hate men...When they have gone low for all of human history, maybe it's time for us to go all Thelma and Louise and Foxy Brown on their collective butts."

"Going low" presumably includes the works of Shakespeare and Tolstoy, the paintings of da Vinci and Michelangelo, the music of Beethoven and the Beatles, the discovery of penicillin and electricity and all the other quite mind-shattering creations and inventions of the male sex through history.

#MeToo has morphed into a career-destroying angry mob

Article here. Excerpt:

'#MeToo has done a lot of work exposing uncomfortable truths, but now its eagerness to denounce is taking on a censorious tone. #TimesUp is becoming #ShutUp.

Recall that the movement got going when women who had long remained silent felt emboldened to speak up after many years. Yet last week one such woman was telling her story. There was a broad public attempt to silence this Korean runaway who doesn’t know her own birthday and grew up eating out of garbage cans on the streets of Seoul before being dumped into an orphanage. Her adoptive mother, she says, regularly belittled her, abused her and essentially made her serve as a household domestic. Then this crazy momster labeled her daughter “retarded.” After all of this, Soon-Yi Previn doesn’t get a right to speak? Because she’s married to Woody Allen?'

Dems: We already know he's guilty

Article here. Excerpt:

'Kavanaugh, many Democrats say, is clearly guilty.

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) said Thursday: "I believe her because she is telling the truth and you know it by her story."

"Judge Kavanaugh has not asked to have the FBI review the claims," Gillibrand added. "Is that the reaction of an innocent person? It is not."

When Sen. Duckworth (D-Ill.) was asked about Kavanaugh denying the accusation, the senator responded, "Well, I have heard, you know, many, many predators say and refute allegations against them."

Former spokesman for Bernie Sanders and CNN contributor, Symone Sanders, said she didn't even need to wait for more information: "For me there is no debate. I believe Professor Ford. Judge Kavanaugh has lied multiple times under oath."

And here are other select quotes from Democratic lawmakers:

Six rules for conducting the Ford-Kavanaugh hearings

Article here. Excerpt:

'Rule 1: No one should presume that either party is lying or telling the truth. There is no gender-based gene for truth telling. Some women tell the truth; some women lie. Some men tell the truth; some men lie. Without hearing any evidence under oath, and subject to cross-examination, no reasonable person should declare psychology professor Christine Blasey Ford to be a victim or federal judge Brett Kavanaugh to be a perpetrator. Nor should anybody declare the opposite. The issue is an evidentiary one and evidence must be heard and subject to rigorous cross-examination, preferably by an experienced and sensitive female litigator.

‘This is what allyship looks like’: HuffPost men reportedly allow women to throw things at them

'We’re not sure how seriously to take this tweet from Friday, which comes to us from HuffPost women and politics reporter Laura Bassett, so we’re assuming this gesture of allyship went down in HuffPost’s office.

There’s a lot to unpack here, as they say these days. Was Friday really that special? Do men throw things at women Monday through Thursday? What about the gender fluid?

Apparently, this was how men at HuffPost demonstrated that they were allies in the feminist cause.'

Colleges, Buffeted by Courts and Washington, Navigate Sexual Assault

Article here. Excerpt:

'Colleges and universities are wrestling with a rise in sexual-assault claims, lawsuits brought by those accused of assault and conflicting directions from courts and the federal government on how to handle them.

The Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals, which covers four Midwestern states, recently ruled that those accused of sexual assault must be allowed to face their accusers—a right they don’t have in other states. State appeals courts in Texas and California are also weighing in with different standards.

Meanwhile, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos is preparing to release new rules strengthening protections for students accused of sexual assault and lightening the burden placed on schools. The rules will narrow the definition of sexual assault that schools are required to adjudicate and will restrict eligible cases to those that occur on campus.'

Letter: Women's march to demand that old white men get out

Article here. Excerpt:

'To the editor:

I have been following this Supreme Court fiasco since Mitch McConnell stole President Obama's court seat. First Gorsuch and now an alleged assaulter. This is what needs to happen, and it needs to happen before November.

Imagine 25 or 30 million women in the streets of Washington D.C..marching, rallying, organizing, saying, in one voice, no more rapists, no more wife beaters, no more cheating husbands, no more.

Imagine if 30 million women went to Washington and said, in one voice, enough is enough with all you disgusting rich old white men destroying our country and the rest of this earth for the sake of your greed and lust and selfishness. Enough of your plundering of our treasures and killing our loved ones and destroying the planet that we are leaving for our children. Enough! Trump, get out! McConnell, get out! Grassley, get out! And take all the other Republicans with you.

Feminists on Kavanaugh-Ford: ‘We Don’t Need to Prove This Beyond a Reasonable Doubt’

Article here. Excerpt:

'Canaff also said Americans must “start by believing” all women who make allegations of sexual assault against men:

Another thing that we believe in violence against women is to, what we call, “start by believing”: SBB. That doesn’t mean that we continue to believe despite any fact that might emerge. … When we begin by believing survivors, then we allow them to open up their minds. We allow their anxiety to go down, their self-esteem to go up. More facts come forward, we actually reduce bias, and we’re able to get to the truth a lot faster.

#MeToo inspires false accusation in eighth grade leading to "Crucible"-like abuse of boy

Article here. Excerpt:

'Following in the footsteps of George Carlin as the class clown can have serious consequences in the “#MeToo” era, 13-year-old eighth grader Keith Bailey recently learned. He thought he was in trouble when he made a wisecrack about a classmate looking “like a school shooter,” but that was nothing compared with what changing his avatar would trigger. Apparently, teen girls have figured out how to make claims, and ruin the life of anyone they get mad at, thanks to democrats.

On Wednesday afternoon, the vice principal of a Colorado Springs middle school dragged Keith from the classroom and marched him back to her office for a secret two-hour interrogation. Administrators did not notify his parents or allow them to be present while he was questioned, just like in the play, “The Crucible.”

The media can have a powerful influence on young minds, especially “drama” loving teen girls. Dianne Feinstein would be so proud at what she accomplished as a role model.
