Story here. Excerpt:
'The recent lawsuit by a female high school basketball player who was injured scrimmaging against males has caused area coaches to take notice, but not make changes.
Girls basketball teams at Ross, Lakota West and Madison are among those who regularly practice against boys, but their sessions are structured and the boys are scrutinized.
"It's not like we're just grabbing anyone out of the hallway and saying, 'Come play against our girls,' " Madison coach John Rossi Jr. said. "Most of these guys are friends with the girls, and they're all good-character, straight-A type of kids, and we let them know we're not interested in seeing what the heck you can do."'

'Locker-room humor about the case involving an Abington boy who police say was raped by a female teacher may be good for a laugh in some circles.
But such banter threatens to perpetuate the misguided idea that boys involved are not victims.
Christine McCallum, 29, stands accused of having a 21-month relationship with a boy, starting when he was 13 and involving up to 300 sexual encounters.
She pleaded innocent Friday to seven counts of statutory child rape.
While most people recognize the violation of trust and potential emotional damage inherent in such a crime, others – and you’ll find plenty – see it as a welcome rite of passage.'
Article here. Excerpt:
'I have represented many sex discrimination victims. I have won their cases. After 20 years of such efforts, I know a victim when I see one. Let me tell you something: Lilly Ledbetter is no victim. When Ledbetter issued, I reserved judgment as I wished to actually read the opinion first, something knee-jerk liberals rarely do. They are so politically motivated to cry foul that the actual legal merits of the case are of no concern to them.
Here’s another fact ignored in the political rhetoric. Ledbetter, for unexplained reasons, abandoned an Equal Pay Act claim asserted in her suit. The Equal Pay Act does not contain Title VII’s filing limitations, nor does it require plaintiffs to prove intent. It was a much better claim, easier to prove, and it was timely. After abandoning it on appeal, Ledbetter essentially tried to squeeze the EPA claim into Title VII’s framework and she justly failed in the effort.
They ought properly to rename the bill as the Ledbetter Con Act of 2009. But she’ll stand next to Obama at the signing, like she was some kind of Rosa Parks. What a joke.'
Very inspring! Story here (.pdf file). Excerpt:
'Charlotte, NC - 70 year old grandmother, Sheila Peltzer, will climb Africa's tallest peak, 19,200' Mount Kilimanjaro raising awareness for Shared Parenting and Familial Dysautonomia. Peltzer, departing January 21, 2009, will make the ten day trek up the western route where sub zero summit temperatures are expected.
Tim McKyer adds; "I'm involved with Sheila to help shine a spotlight on the family courts. At one time my children lived with me and were doing well. Now I have limited access to them and they are falling behind in school and having other problems. The courts are handicapping my kids unnecessarily. What my kids are being subjected to at the hands of the court is beyond absurd."'
Video here. I realize Ann Coulter is extremely controversial, but she makes some logical observations about motherhood and fatherhood. Notice how the audience roars with applause when Elisabeth Hasselbeck insinuates fathers are not taking responsibility.
I found this piece of misandry about Joan Rivers' new book "Men Are Stupid... And They Like Big Boobs" on NPR.
If this woman was ever funny in the past, she isn't any more. The title of her book has put me off. I tried to listen to the online interview Scott Simon did with her, but was turned off by the way the book was portrayed in a cute manner, when the title obviously wasn't cute.
Hey, how about a book titled "Women Are Stupid...And They Like Big Paychecks." Or bad boys.

'A WOMAN who killed a toddler by smashing her 4x4 into his pushchair was jailed for seven years yesterday.
Suicidal Katie Gutierrez-Perez, 40, had swallowed sleeping pills, cider and wine after bailiffs snatched her home and business — but was driving to hospital after a change of heart.
She lost control of her Toyota Hilux outside a school and mounted the pavement, catapulting mum Tina Woods, 31, through the air before pinning her 15-month-old son Finlay’s buggy against a gatepost.
Finlay died of head injuries. After mother-of-two Gutierrez-Perez was pulled from the vehicle she shrugged and asked: “Have I hurt someone, then?”
Minutes earlier she had been warned not to drive by a DVLA inspector, who saw the 4x4 was uninsured and smelled alcohol.'
Today RADAR launches a new campaign "Violence Against Women Act: OUT OF CONTROL" The campaign will highlight that despite spending billions of dollars over the last decade, VAWA-funded programs lack accountability and effectiveness, and are destroying families. Case in point are the advertisements that were run on the Dallas Area Rapid Transit last Fall that featured messages promoting harmful and false stereotypes.
During the next few months our campaign will highlight how the Violence Against Women Act has gone out of control. We will be asking you to help get out the word to your elected representatives and the media how the Violence Against Women Act is out of control, as well as how to reform VAWA.
See editorial here. The misandry inflicted upon fathers and men seems to be finally hitting the mainstream media with more regularity. A well written editorial on last weeks article on forcing a man to pay child support even though he was not the biological father.
Once again I urge you to read the comments after the editorial that are for the most part polite well thought out arguments against the current judical and societal systems that inflicts pain and hardships on men and fathers.
One such example:
Ontario family law has been predicated o Odium Paternus -- Hatred of fathers. It is truly disgusting, and has the unbridled support of sociopaths and psychopaths who use these laws to extort, coerce and steal funds from fathers and good natured people.
Read it to believe it, here. Excerpt:
'British and German women, however, feel free to make their husbands wear genital irons before letting them leave for work. The most horrible thing about it is that "cuffed" men do not give way to despair: they easily communicate with other men, who have their penises locked up in their pants. Chastity belts pose only one problem for their owners - men feel shy to use public toilets.
Salzburg lawyer Henrich Firshman was accused of sexual harassment at work. The lawyer's wife told the judge that the suit filed against her husband was groundless, because the man had been wearing a chastity belt at work for two years. The belt was presented at the court - it looked quite worn out. In addition, forensic experts proved that the belt was worn by Firshmen. The chastity belt saved the man's career and relieved him of the need to pay thousands of euros of penalties. About 30,000 European men come to work wearing chastity belts nowadays. This astounding Puritanism during the age of sexual revolution has been probably caused with people's wish to be 100 percent sure of their faithfulness. It is noteworthy that women wear chastity belts in such families too.
Specialists of medicine say, however, that chastity belts are very harmful to men. They are very tight and rigid; they may block blood flow and cause painful edema, tissue numbness and even temporal impotence. Women's chastity belts are a lot less problematic - they do not exert any negative influence on the sexual function of a woman.'
