"How Women Can Work Better With Men"

Article here. Excerpt:

'Be The Adult
I once read somewhere that behavior is always a reflection of age or stage of development. And Dr. Robert Kegan, who studies adult human development at Harvard University, has found that most individuals are stuck at an earlier stage of development marked by hubris and pride. The behaviors of male colleagues that frustrate women are generally a reflection of that stunted adult development.

With this understanding, it's easier to be the adult, and perhaps easier still if you happen to be a parent. When you see your co-worker as a child who is acting out of line, seeking attention, or interrupting you mid-conversation, you’ll instinctively know how to keep your cool, discern what the situation calls for, and respond assertively when you need to do so. You may not do anything differently to what you’re already doing. But you’ll do so from a place of power.'

CNN’s Bash blames wage gap for Griner arrest, claims player wouldn't have been in Russia if WNBA paid like NBA

Article here. Excerpt:

'CNN anchor and chief political correspondent Dana Bash claimed that the WNBA’s low pay, as compared to NBA players’ salaries, could have been a factor in the sentencing of WNBA player Brittney Griner to nine years in a Russian prison.

Bash insisted that if it weren’t for the wage gap, Griner wouldn’t have had to play in Russia to generate revenue for the league. Thus, she would have never been arrested for having cannabis oil vape cartridges at a Moscow airport.

After pleading guilty to drug possession and drug smuggling of cannabis oil last month, Phoenix Mercury player Brittney Griner was handed a nine-year prison sentence by a Russian court on Thursday. Griner was fined the equivalent of $16,400 in Russian Rubles in addition to the sentence.'

Who are Smarter – Men or Women? Know These Scientific Studies

Article here. Excerpt:

'Men and women are seen as equal in all aspects of life. Many feminism and equality movements have strengthened the position of women in society. Gone are the days when men would dominate the opposite gender by showing their so-called masculinity. Things have changed for good. Today, many women are leading companies, living freely without worrying about the opinions of society or societal norms. Women have become more liberal and less vulnerable.
...
According to many recent studies, women are smarter than men. So, what makes them more intelligent than the opposite gender?

Some factors include having a better memory than men, being able to handle stressful situations better than them, having the quality of multitasking, etc. It is found that women are better leaders, more careful drivers, and better students than men. Some studies also state that women are more focused and frugal than men.'

Loss of Male Sex Chromosome Leads to Earlier Death for Men

Article here. Excerpt:

'The loss of the male sex chromosome as many men age causes the heart muscle to scar and can lead to deadly heart failure, new research from the University of Virginia School of Medicine shows. The finding may help explain why men die, on average, several years younger than women.

UVA researcher Kenneth Walsh, Ph.D., says the new discovery suggests that men who suffer Y chromosome loss—estimated to include 40% of 70-year-olds—may particularly benefit from an existing drug that targets dangerous tissue scarring.'

Canada: Supreme Court rules not wearing condom against partner's wishes could lead to sexual assault conviction

Article here. Excerpt:

'People who don't wear condoms during sex after being told to by their sexual partners can be convicted of sexual assault, the Supreme Court of Canada ruled today.

In its unanimous decision, the top court ruled that "stealthing" — the act of pretending to use a condom, or removing one prior to sex without the partner's consent — can violate the legal grounds for consensual sex.

"Sex with and without a condom are fundamentally and qualitatively distinct forms of physical touching," Justice Sheilah Martin wrote in the majority decision.'

UK: Who’ll speak up for the working-class white boys who’ve become Britain’s new oppressed minority?

Article here. Excerpt:

'Britain, we are often told, is a deeply racist and intolerant society, in which sinister ‘power structures’ hold back minority ethnic groups, while the white majority push selfishly ahead.

Yet new data flies in the face of this fashionable narrative.

Following a national drive to make undergraduate intakes more ‘diverse’, figures released on Thursday by the Department for Education showed that, for the first time, white young people are now proportionately the least likely of all major ethnic groups to attend our top universities.

Among Britain’s Chinese families, some 40.7 per cent of their youngsters made it to Oxford, Cambridge and others in the elite Russell Group in 2020-21. The figures for Asian young people were 16 per cent. It was 10.7 per cent for black families — and just 10.5 per cent among white ones.

‘Brazen Discrimination’: Cruz Grills Biden Official Over State Dept Email Allegedly Excluding ‘Straight White Men’

Article here. Excerpt:

'Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz pressed the State Department’s chief Diversity and Inclusion officer Gina Abercrombie-Winstanley over an email allegedly excluding “straight, white men” and people of the wrong religion from being hired.

The senator argued Tuesday that the department’s Equity Action Plan, which changed hiring practices at the agency, is “nothing more than brazen discrimination.” An email from a senior department official described reports from candidates claiming to be denied a position for having a disability or for classifying as “white men, straight white men, [or] not [being] of the right religion.”

“Did you clear this guidance?” Cruz asked during the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on “diversity, equity and inclusion.”

“I’ve never seen that before,” Abercrombie-Winstanley said.'

Who needs Title IX now?

Article here. Excerpt:

'By numerous educational yardsticks, it is men, not women, who today lag far behind. In most academic fields — biology, communications, the arts, public administration, education, health care, psychology, English — women now earn a majority of bachelor’s degrees.

“It is young men, more than young women, who are at risk and facing serious educational and work-related challenges,” notes Perry. Those gender disparities carry over far beyond academics. Men are much more likely than women to end up with “a variety of measures of (a) behavioral and mental health outcomes, (b) alcoholism, drug addiction, and drug overdoses, (c) suicide, murder, violent crimes, and incarceration, and (d) homelessness.”

For all that, Perry writes, it is girls and women who are favored with “a disproportionate amount of attention, resources, and financial support” at all levels of education — such as after-school and summer programs for girls, female-only scholarships and fellowships, and hundreds of women’s centers and women’s commissions.

Colleges, courts on collision course

Article here. Excerpt:

'You're accused of a serious offense. Determined to clear your name, you agree to an interview and give a voluntary statement. The evidence against you is secret, and there’s no right to face your accuser. Weeks later, the same person who informed you of the allegation decides your punishment.

That farcical facsimile of justice is better suited to a corrupt autocracy than a constitutional republic, but if Catherine Lhamon has her way, it will become the norm at American colleges and universities.

Lhamon, the U.S. Department of Education’s assistant secretary for civil rights, is the driving force behind new Title IX regulations currently in the notice-and-comment stage of federal rulemaking. When the proposed rules take effect, colleges will face pressure to adjudicate sexual assault and harassment claims without even a cursory pretense of fairness.'
