Chelsea Clinton Calls For Tucker Carlson & ‘White Men’ To Be Held Accountable For Antisemitism After Kanye

Article here. Excerpt:

'Chelsea Clinton called for even more accountability for “white men” sharing antisemitic remarks after Kanye West was dropped from a number of partnerships during an interview on The View on Friday, October 28. The former first daughter specifically accused right-wing commentator Tucker Carlson of spreading antisemitism, when asked about her reaction to the rapper’s recent comments.

Even though Chelsea said that it was good to see Kanye face consequences, she accused the Fox News personality of sharing antisemitism. “While I can be grateful that there is accountability for the dangerous antisemitic rhetoric that Kanye has trafficked in and amplified, Tucker Carlson and a lot of white men are also trafficking in a lot of really dangerous antisemitism, and they need to be held accountable too,” she said.

Men Need Restoration, Not Leftist Ridicule, To Fix Our Modern Masculinity Crisis

Article here. Excerpt:

'Although liberals seem to view masculine suffering as more of a joke, if not justified, retribution for having to live under “the patriarchy,” America is witnessing unprecedented problems for its men. As Hawley said in a speech last year, “American men are working less, they are getting married in fewer numbers, they’re fathering fewer children, they’re suffering more anxiety and depression, they’re engaging in more substance abuse.” The percentage of men pursuing degrees in higher education is precipitously declining. According to a study released by the Brookings Institution earlier this year, only 41 percent of students currently enrolled in college are men. That decrease, which has been going on for years, seems likely to continue. The percentage of men graduating from college is also declining.

Spain: To prison for laughing on Twitter at the fatal victims of sexist violence

Translated article here. While what the accused said was not desirable talk, plenty worse is said about men daily by feminists and out and out man-haters. Yet nothing happens to them. If misogyny is a crime in Spain and other places, why also is not misandry? This aside from free speech issues. Excerpt:

'A Twitter user will enter prison for laughing at the fatal victims of gender violence . The Supreme Court has decided to increase his sentence for a crime of incitement to hatred up to two and a half years in prison, which implies his compulsory entry into prison even if he has no criminal record.

Australia: New funding to promote healthy masculinity among young men

Article here. Excerpt:

'Youth Minister Dave Kelly today announced $90,000 funding over three years for a peer-to-peer program to be rolled out in Western Australian classrooms coaching high school boys how to embrace healthy masculinity and positive attitudes towards women.

The MAN UP program aims to change the attitude, approach, behaviours and language around modern masculinity, enabling young men to embrace positive ideas over toxic ones at an earlier age.
Education workshops will be run for boys in years 7 to 12 and will focus on mental health and well-being with an emphasis on transforming boys into confident, purpose-driven, emotionally capable men.

"Mental health issues in men can stem from a toxic concept of masculinity that requires men to 'man up' or 'toughen up', to keep their emotions and vulnerability tightly controlled and hidden at all times.'

Blame Qatar's Illiberal Migrant Labor Laws for Its Mounting World Cup Death Toll

Article here. These men are modern-day slaves. Excerpt:

'Since FIFA awarded Qatar the hosting rights in December 2010, more than 6,500 migrant workers are known to have died in Qatar, according to a February 2021 Guardian report. That combined number came from the governments of Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka. The true total may be much higher, since large numbers of Kenyans and Filipinos also are working in Qatar.

"Tom Brady And The Selfishness Of Conventional Masculinity"

Article here. Lesson: Commit to career and family, and you'll get screwed in the end. Remember this. Excerpt:

'Brady embodies a trope as old as the patriarchy: the honorable provider who clocks in even when he doesn’t feel like it, gives his fullest effort every second, and rises up the ranks of his industry, securing his family’s financial well-being. He bears this burden for his loved ones, he will tell you, and he appreciates their unyielding support because after a long day of providing, a man needs a warm embrace to come home to. Winning the Super Bowl “meant a lot for my family,” Brady says in Tom vs. Time, “knowing what all my family put into it.” He is, in his telling, a martyr for a righteous cause. As long as he thrives at work, pays the bills, and refrains from any abusive behavior, he fulfills the obligations of being A Good Man.'

Women-are-wonderful effect

Article here. Referenced from another article, I thought I'd just mention it here on MANN. Excerpt:

'The women-are-wonderful effect is the phenomenon found in psychological and sociological research which suggests that people associate more positive attributes with women compared to men. This bias reflects an emotional bias toward women as a general case. The phrase was coined by Alice Eagly and Antonio Mladinic in 1994 after finding that both male and female participants tend to assign positive traits to women, with female participants showing a far more pronounced bias. Positive traits were assigned to men by participants of both genders, but to a far lesser degree.

He's known as Chile's greatest poet, but feminists say Pablo Neruda is canceled

Article here. "Posthumous feminist cancellation". Excerpt:

'There's a steady stream of fans visiting the museum that once was the home of Pablo Neruda, widely considered Chile's greatest poet. It's located on massive black cliffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean. It's also the spot where Neruda is buried.

The poet died 49 years ago, yet his reputation remains a work in progress.

Neruda has always been a polarizing figure in Chile, mainly for his left-wing politics. But now he is being called out by Chile's growing feminist movement as a male chauvinist and sexual predator.

"He's been canceled," says Lieta Vivaldi, a human rights activist and member of Chile's Feminist Lawyers Association.'

No man's land

Article here. Excerpt:

'When a gender gap disfavors women, we hear about it. But in his new book, Richard Reeves shows that today, a lot of gender gaps disfavor men. A scholar from the Brookings Institution, Reeves has written a book about how one of the two human sexes is struggling and needs special attention from the government. It’s called Of Boys and Men — and it’s impossible to pigeonhole ideologically.

The tome is too pro-male to fit in with today’s Left, too friendly with “social justice” concepts to belong on the Right, too big-government to be libertarian, and too interesting and unpredictable to qualify as centrist. Reeves’s goal seems to be to force everyone to confront their blind spots while grabbing attention with a "made for cable news interviews" proposal:

Boys, Reeves says, should be "redshirted" in school by default. That is, unless their parents opted out, boys would get an extra “dose” of pre-K while girls of the same age were in kindergarten and then start kindergarten alongside girls one year younger than them.'

The Boys Feminism Left Behind

Article here. Excerpt:

'If feminists paid more attention to the education of boys, they could help stop the trend to pathologize typically boy behavior. This means opposing the application of the label “toxic masculinity” for any behavior that the user disapproves of. It also means recognizing that there are some differences between males and females that are not just socially determined, but biologically based.

Schools are increasingly structured in ways that frustrate boys. We expect young children to sit still and be quiet—which is harder on boys. We cut back on physical activity and push academics to ever earlier grades, meaning that slower maturing boys start failing in school early. We have eliminated much of the hands-on learning opportunities, such as shop, that used to be standard.

British OnlyFans model Abigail White found guilty in stabbing death of ex after breakup

Article here. Exceptional. In most cases, she walks away either found not guilty or gets a suspended sentence. Excerpt:

'British OnlyFans model Abigail White, who went by Mitzee Lewis online and styled herself as "Fake Barbie," was sentenced to life in prison Friday for fatally stabbing her ex-boyfriend in late March.

The Bristol Crown Court found the 23-year-old woman guilty of stabbing her ex-boyfriend, Bradley Lewis, 22, in the heart at their South Gloucestershire home hours after he broke up with her.

Chief just opened a private club for female execs in SF

Article here. Excerpt:

'Chief finally has a clubhouse in San Francisco, but don’t call it a coworking space. The 8,600 square feet do include conference rooms, one-person Zoom rooms, and open-plan seating, but it also has a bar, lounge seating, and — like Chief’s other clubhouses in New York, L.A., and Chicago — a piano.

“To me, what the piano represents is ‘this is not a coworking space,’” Chief co-founder Lindsay Kaplan told me on a tour of the clubhouse in advance of its official opening Thursday. “This is a place where you can sit back and take meetings in a very laid-back manner.”

Unlike the Wing, the women-focused coworking space and club that shut down this summer after a six-year run, Kaplan and co-founder and CEO Carolyn Childers are still much more interested in building and supporting Chief’s network than boosting its physical amenities.'

Arizona Governor Candidate Kari Lake: 'There's No Such Thing as Toxic Masculinity'

Article here. Excerpt:

'Kari Lake, a former local news anchor and current Republican nominee for governor in Arizona, insisted that “there’s no such thing as toxic masculinity” and that the term is a “bunch of BS” at an event called Black Voices for Kari Lake on Monday, The New Republic reported. At the event, hosted by former NFL player Jack Brewer and where“Power” by Kanye West reportedly played as Lake walked on stage, the candidate also made a number of racist dog whistles about Black families, absent fathers, and the necessity of “strong fathers” for “strong women.” (The comments notably echoed those of Georgia Republican Senate candidate Herschel Walker, who as we all know isn’t exactly Father of the Year.)

It’s pretty funny to hear a Republican candidate in a state grappling with a near-total abortion ban deny the existence of toxic masculinity, while her party embraces candidates like Herschel Walker, who once held a gun to his wife’s head, and campaigns with incel king Jordan Peterson and platforms Andrew Tate. Just look around, ma’am!'
