The Istanbul Convention, A Feminist Trojan Horse

It is easy even for most politicians just to read what the title says and believe that all must be okay. After all, "Istanbul Convention Action against violence against women and domestic violence" must be good for society, right? Well, it would be if the content of the convention echoed the title and kept to the title.

Article here. Excerpt:

In its signing of the Istanbul Convention, the UK government committed itself to take “necessary measures to promote changes in the social and cultural patterns of behaviour of women and men to eradicate traditions and all other practises which are based on stereotyped roles for women and men.”

Sarah Everard and the feminism of fear

Article here. Excerpt:

'The feminism of fear was everywhere this year.

Just as women should have been making the most of post-lockdown freedoms, we were plunged into a panic over our safety. Politicians, campaigners and commentators ruthlessly stoked and exploited women’s concerns.
...
Measures to protect women and clamp down on men need to be proportionate. But proportion is exactly what is lost when we shift seamlessly between murder and a slap on the bum. The murders of Everard and Nessa were newsworthy precisely because crimes like these are so rare. Women are not routinely murdered by strangers on their way home, even if they walk alone and in the dark. Statistics show that in 2018 only six per cent of UK femicides (nine victims) were committed by a stranger, with three of these women killed in the context of a robbery or burglary. This is out of a population of 34million women.'

Man banned from leaving Israel for 8,000 years over child support payments

Article here. Excerpt:

'“The total in the year 2013 was roughly ₪7.5 million ($3.34 million),” Mr. Huppert, who works as an analytical chemist for a pharmaceutical company, told NewsAU. Israeli courts had ruled Huppert owed NIS 5,000 per month for each child until they turned 18.

“Since 2013, I am locked in Israel,” Huppert explained, adding that he was one of many Australian citizens that have been “persecuted by the Israeli justice system only because they were married to Israeli women.”
...
Israel’s laws regarding divorce and child support have faced previous criticism for being vague and unjust. Director Sorin Luca, who is creating a documentary about Israel's divorce laws called "No Exit Order", purports that “A woman can easily put a travel ban on the father, with a demand for child support which can extend to the entire duration of the childhood.”

Democrats have a man problem

Article here. Excerpt:

'As Democrats investigate what went wrong in the 2021 elections and what is going wrong heading into the 2022 elections, a familiar pattern is emerging: Men are abandoning the party in droves.
...
So why are men leaving the Democratic Party?

Perhaps it is because the entire Democratic agenda seems designed to make men irrelevant, and men have begun to notice.

Consider the slideshow Biden’s White House released to promote their Build Back Better agenda this October. Very similar to a slideshow produced by President Barack Obama’s 2012 campaign featuring a fictional “Julia,” Biden’s “Linda” goes through life with new Democratic programs helping her along the way.

We see Linda pregnant with her son “Leo,” but Leo’s father is not mentioned. We then see Linda benefit from an expanded Child Tax Credit, government-subsidized daycare, and government-run Pre-K, but no man shares in their life. It is as if fathers didn’t exist.

"The Beauty Tax"

Feminists have suggested men be made to pay more in taxes because of our "privilege". We've heard similar suggestions along racial lines too from some self-appointed social reconstructionists.

This YT vid is about a Japanese movie that imagines a world where attractive women are made to pay a tax because of their "beauty privilege". You quickly see how ridiculous things become when the matter plays out.

Women Face More Stress At Work Because They Are Better At Keeping To Deadlines Than Men, Study Says

Article here. Excerpt:

'A new study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences found that women face more stress at work because they are better at keeping to deadlines than men. The study defines “time stress” as “having too many things to do and not enough time to do them.” According to the study, women experience disproportionately higher time stress than men.
...
On an individual level: if a deadline is flexible and you might need more time, ask for it. Managers should check in regularly with stressed out team members to ask if a deadline extension would help, where possible.

On a company level: Organizations can implement formal policies to facilitate deadline extension requests, making it easier for employees to ask for more time to get work done.'

It’s a (wo)man’s world: Women are ‘better’ leaders in times of crisis, agri stakeholders say

Article here. Excerpt:

'From climate change to the COVID pandemic, the agriculture sector is facing no shortage of crises. As such, conversations increasingly revolve around the need to increase the sector’s resilience.

These commonly centre on the need to reduce farmers’ reliance on external inputs, improve the long term viability of the sector or shorten the supply chain, all of which are outlined as key priorities in the EU’s flagship food policy, the Farm to Fork strategy.

But for Shima Barakat, director of the entrepreneurship for sustainability programme at the University of Cambridge, the research suggests that these conversations should also factor gender into the equation.

“Are women sustainability leaders? At this point in time, I think the simple answer is yes,” she told a recent event, highlighting that there is a wealth of studies conducted both before and after the COVID pandemic to suggest that women are “better leaders during times of crisis”.'

Woman pleads guilty to manslaughter after repeatedly advising NJ man to ‘kill yourself’

Article here. Excerpt:

'A woman who allegedly pushed a New Jersey man to take his own life with a barrage of texts reading “go kill yourself” pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter Thursday.

Former Boston College student Inyoung You, 23, received a 2 1/2 year suspended jail sentence and 10 years of probation, meaning she can avoid prison by completing her probation.

You, a native of South Korea, sent Alexander Urtula, 22, of Cedar Grove, 47,000 texts over the last two months of their relationship, prosecutors said. She “repeatedly told the victim that he should kill himself or die and waged a campaign of abuse that stripped the victim of his free will,” according to officials.

Urtula died of suicide on the day of his Boston College graduation.'

UK: Female deputy headteacher and safeguarding officer convicted of 18 child sex offences including rape

The female deputy head and lead of safeguarding at a church school, along with her partner, repeatedly filmed themselves abusing and raping a girl under the age of 13.

Individuals and organisations that resist attempts to acknowledge and discuss female perpetrators are partly responsible for people like this. They enable them getting into positions of trust and are culpable for a great deal of suffering of children and adults.

On the slightly positive side, ITV News at least is concentrating on the main perpetrator, even though it is a woman. That's a step forward from how the legacy media have been behaving for decades.

"I think it's no secret that the different things she has been asked to take on are incredibly demanding, not always well understood publicly and take a lot of work as well as a lot of skill," Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg told the Times.'

Academic Ideologues Are Corrupting STEM

An author writes with the experience of her own early life in the USSR, where communist “ideology permeated all aspects of life, and survival required strict adherence to the party line and enthusiastic displays of ideologically proper behavior.”

Men are being pushed out of STEM fields on the pretence that women (already in the majority unless one massages the data) need to be promoted and have special facilities for them.

The bullying of a 'mob' which includes those in positions of authority is described as an intrusion of newspeak into science and education that is truly Orwellian. Once again, it is left to men, and those who support them, to fight for sense, morality and science.
