'On a Monday night in a sparsely decorated room in midtown Manhattan, a group of approximately 20 men including an endocrinologist, a sportscaster, a policeman and an employee of the United Nations were baring their souls.

“I’ve been digging deep with my girlfriend and we are having those talks about moving forward in our relationship, and I’m having nights where I can’t sleep,” said Andrew Cummings, 44, an opera singer in New York who has performed at Carnegie Hall.

“I’m angry that my health is deteriorating. I’m not ready to be an old man,” said Jeff Nichols, 70, a former consultant.

Modern feminism is no less sexist than the misogyny it claims to fight

Article here. Excerpt:

'Modern-day, third-wave feminism is no less sexist than the misogyny it claims to fight. Often, feminists will place a veil of supposed progress over an actual promotion of inequality in an attempt to appeal to the masses. They believe this makes their message more palatable. In reality, it only highlights what drives them.

Lately, feminists have been promoting the "future is female" idea, as if success as a people or a nation is found in one gender alone. This supremacist mindset does nothing to right the legitimate wrongs of the past. Instead, it overcorrects and declares that sexism is wholly acceptable so long as you're demeaning men.

Boys and Girls Club of Washington Co. hosted their first Future is Female event

Article here. Excerpt:

'For the first time ever the Boys and Girls Club of Washington County put together an event called The Future is Female.

Growing up in a world where social media and online images dominate the minds of impressionable children can be tough, especially young women, that's why the Boys and Girls Club of Washington County put on the Future is Female event.

"A program to help girls build their self esteem and self confidence. Right now they say at the age of 9, young girls begin to say they have low self esteem," said Eric Rollins.

One of the keynote speakers was Hagerstown Councilwoman Emily Keller, who says it's hard to escape bullying, she has had her share of attacks on social media, and she wants the girls to know that you just gotta let it roll off your shoulder.

"Just important to stay above it, and rise above it, and still pursue your dreams, and not let the negativity get to you," said Keller.'

Male professor fights 'gender apartheid' by targeting women-only programs

Article here. Excerpt:

'A male professor at the University of Michigan-Flint is targeting women-only programs at multiple schools as an example of gender discrimination against men.

Finance professor Mark Perry has written to dozens of schools across the country targeting women-only scholarships and girls-only science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) summer camps, alleging Title IX abuses against men and gender non-conforming students.

“There is this blind spot in higher education where they have accepted discrimination against men and boys,” Mr. Perry told the Star Tribune.

The professor’s efforts recently put a stop to a women-only study lounge at Michigan State University.

“I called it gender apartheid,” he said. “They had this prime space on campus where they were discriminating against half their student body.”'

Gillibrand's gone 'full woke'

Article here. Excerpt:

'A guest on Tucker Carlson Tonight Thursday took a shot at New York Democratic Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand for a comment she tweeted earlier this week saying the future of the country is “female” and “intersectional.”

“Her ambitions have grown — being Senator, a bad Senator, is not enough, so now she has moved full woke. She now sounds like a sociology professor from SUNY Osweego,” Tucker began. “Half her constituents are men for example and she recently posted a message just for them. ‘There is no future for you,’ she said. On Twitter this week, Gillibrand wrote ‘our future is female. Intersectional and empowered by our belief in one another and we are just getting started.’ What the hell does that mean? Manhattan Institute fellow Heather Mac Donald might know the answer so we’ve asked her to come on tonight to explain.”

'November was Native American Heritage Month. But the focus then and since has been almost entirely upon Native American women. It is rare for the problems of Native American men to receive so much as a nod.

The women deserve attention. An Associated Press headlined “Despite past reforms, Native women face high rates of crime,” explains, “For generations, Native American women have been victimized at astonishing rates, with federal figures showing that more than half have encountered sexual and domestic violence at some point during their lives — even amid a wave of efforts aimed at reducing such crimes.” The men deserve attention, as well.

Gillibrand’s own sons have no place in her ‘future’

Article here. Excerpt:

'"The future is female.” It’s a favorite slogan of the identity left that has now gone mainstream. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand tweeted it on Wednesday, adding that the future is also “intersectional” and “powered by our belief in one another.”

But if the future is female, what happens to our boys? And what message are we sending our present-day girls?

Gillibrand is one of about 30 Democrats considering running for president in 2020, and the tweet suggests she’s seizing some strategic left-wing ground (in a primary field crowded with lefties) by appealing to the Dems’ identity-obsessed base.
...
Gillibrand has two sons, who apparently aren’t part of the future their mother imagines. They won’t be saved by intersectionality, either. White, male sons of senators will find winning the grievance Olympics to be nearly impossible.

India: Women-only plane seating needed to combat sexual assault and midair 'manspread'

Article here. Excerpt:

'Airlines are under pressure to provide separate women's seating to combat the lecherous spread of male passengers over the dividing armrests, amid a surge in midair sexual assaults.

Writing for the South China Morning Post, columnist Kate Whitehead described her experiences with "manspreading" and urged airlines to introduce women-only rows.

"Nine times out of 10 – based on my extensive experience flying 'cattle class' – if a man is seated beside a woman he will claim the armrest. Not only that, but his elbow will protrude slightly into the woman's seat space.

"Unless you are prepared to press your arm against the man's – which will allow you to feel the rise and fall of his breath and is, I feel, too inti­mate a connection with a stranger – then you have lost two inches of your seat."'

UK: Man's 'disappointment after being turned away' from women only march through Lincoln

Article here. Excerpt:

'A student from Lincoln claims he was turned away from an a woman's march in the city because of his gender.

Thomas Cansdale says he turned out in the bitterly cold weather to lend his support to Lincolnshire Rape Crisis' 'Reclaim the Night' event on November 24, which saw women walk from Castle Square to St Benedict’s Square.

The 20-year-old attended with his girlfriend Rhian Richards.

But after arriving in good time and chatting to one of the organisers in a hi-viz top, Thomas says he was told he would not be able to join the march - though he could meet up with the group at the end.

His claim has been denied by organisers of the march, who have claimed they did not turn him away, but the rules did prevent men from going on the march.'
