Mayor of St. Louis seeks to scrap police chief search because only "white males" were available for choosing

Article here. Excerpt:

'St. Louis Mayor Tishaura Jones confirmed Tuesday she wants to scrap the current search for the city’s new police chief after facing difficulties created by a former city leader.

Rick Frank, who stepped down as the city’s independent personnel department in December, determined police chief finalists would be chosen solely by his department. This broke from how current Police Chief John Hayden was chosen under Mayor Lyda Krewson and Frank, who hired an outside consultant to find and pick the finalists.

“I only had two white male candidates to choose from and St. Louis is more diverse than white males, our police department is more diverse—there were a lot of diverse candidates within the police department who were kicked out of the first round so I want to start over to find the right candidate,” Jones said.'

"Real Men Missing"

Article here. Excerpt:

'Conservative leadership today lacks strong men of courage who will, using solid first principles, face down the radical left. In other words, conservatism today has been emasculated. There is no better word for it. 

In a recent interview with Glenn Beck, Tucker Carlson described the present Republican leadership:

They’re weak. There’s something in them that’s weak, and they’ve decided… ‘The other side is ascended. The left is winning. I’m not gonna push any buttons that might infuriate them.’ They’re just not lionhearted.

Carlson further lamented that these men will not stand firmly on even the most basic ideas, such as an uncompromising defense of free speech, per the First Amendment. Tellingly, he adds, “The only ones who will do it are women.”

Katie Glass says women should stop moaning about mansplaining

Article here. Excerpt:

It is a word I can’t stand. Like manspreading (men taking up extra room by sitting with their legs wide) or man-slamming (men’s alleged habit of barging past women on the street), it seems little more than a sexist, mean-spirited way to attack men.

To me, what is often dismissed as mansplaining is simply helpful advice, rejected by women who are oversensitive about potentially being patronised.

Far too many of us these days, I fear, shoot ourselves in the foot by refusing all male help, so keen are we to be seen as empowered equals.

If such a gendered and dismissive word were used to undermine women’s help, we’d be furious. Actually, there is such a word — to nag — and if a man dared use it about me, I’d be apoplectic.

Adam Zivo: Ruling that Steven Galloway can sue over false rape allegations a win for due process

Article here. Excerpt:

'A B.C. judge’s ruling that novelist Steven Galloway can sue his accuser over repeated and unsubstantiated claims that he is a rapist is a dose of common sense, signalling that due process still matters and that those who make false sexual assault allegations are not above accountability.

Previously a feted author, Galloway became infamous in the Canadian literary world after a former student of his publicly accused him of sexual assault. A subsequent investigation determined in 2016 that this accusation was unfounded and that the student and Galloway had a consensual relationship, though Galloway was fired from his University of British Columbia position for an “irreparable breach of trust.”

Gurugram woman, who filed 7 rape cases against 7 men, now held for ‘extortion’

Article here. Excerpt:

'A 20-year-old student who filed seven rape cases against seven men at seven police stations in Gurugram has been arrested for allegedly filing a fake sexual assault complaint in a suspected extortion bid.

The woman, an English Honours student at Delhi University, has been booked for alleged extortion, insulting the modesty of a woman, threats for false evidence, criminal intimidation, and criminal conspiracy.

She filed the seven complaints over 14 months beginning September 2020. Three of these cases have already been closed. In two of these, she has been issued notices to appear before court under Section 182 (false information, with intent to cause public servant to use his lawful power to the injury of another person) of the IPC.

Her arrest came after the mother of one of the men she got booked filed a police complaint against her.

Exposing the great feminist reset

Article here. Excerpt:

'Their sticky fingers were all over the final report from the House of Representatives Inquiry into the National Plan for Violence Against Women, which recommended all sorts of gender ‘equality’ initiatives, like:

Courses in schools to improve financial literacy – but only for girls.

Initiatives to upskill and reskill people in STEM – but only for women.

Programs to increase digital literacy – excluding men and boys.

Their view of what’s needed to address gender inequality requires, according to Our Watch, ‘The redistribution of power, resources and responsibilities between men and women.’

Pretty radical stuff, eh? Not according to the leaders of most of our major institutions who seem unable to resist the ongoing feminist push.'

Spain says it is first in Europe to officially count all femicides

Article here. Excerpt:

'Official statistics on gender-based violence in Spain will be broadened to include killings of women and children by men regardless of whether there was a prior relationship between victim and killer, in what is being described as a first in Europe.

“What is not named does not exist,” said Spain’s equality minister, Irene Montero. “We have to recognise all of the victims and make visible all forms of violence – all machista [sexist] killings – so that we can put in place policies for prevention, early detection and eradication.”

Since 2003 Spain has logged killings as gender violence if there is evidence that the killer and the victim had been or were in a relationship. From Saturday 1 January the definition of gender violence will be broadened to include the murder of any woman or children in which gender is deemed to have played a role.'

Calls for femicide to become separate crime in Greece mount as two more women killed

Article here. Excerpt:

'Changes to the penal code more recently have ensured that the severest penalties will be meted out to those found guilty of murdering women, with perpetrators no longer able to cite extenuating circumstances in the hope of receiving a lighter sentence if the act is deemed a “crime of passion”. The justice ministry is also poised to overhaul domestic violence legislation drafted more than a decade ago.

The country’s gender equality minister, Maria Syrengela, described the measures as unprecedented. “There’ll be no ability for men to claim they acted in the heat of the moment, that it was a crime of passion,” she told the Guardian.

“And when the domestic violence law is redrafted in line with the Istanbul convention, we will of course advise that femicide is included,” she said. “It’s about time.”'

Why Feminism Failed

Article here. Excerpt:

'For every conservative woman who rejects feminism, there’s a female pundit who says “but only what it has become.” There are many, it seems, who want to hold on to the idea, or perhaps even just the appearance, of political equity between the sexes, even as they reject what it has brought about.

Far be it from me to expect women in politics, whatever their affiliation, to openly reject the worldview that birthed their careers. But for the sake of intellectual consistency, it should be said that this position is as untenable as its preferred outcome is unlikely. Not only will American feminism never return to its First Wave iteration, but if it were to do so, we would only end up here again. “Here” meaning “birthing persons” protesting abortion laws in uterus hats and men getting snipped as “an act of love.” The logic of feminism has always been totalizing, even if its more radical threads were once hidden to convince the less observant public to back its initial political battles.'

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.”
