UK: Andrew Malkinson's rape conviction quashed after 20-year fight

Article here. Excerpt:

'Andrew Malkinson was jailed in 2004 for the attack on a woman in Salford, serving 17 years in prison for a crime he always said he did not commit.

His case was referred to the Court of Appeal in January after new evidence pointed to another potential suspect.

Mr Malkinson, 57, said: "I was innocent and finally they listened."

"But I have been innocent all along, for each of those 20 years that came before today," he said.

"It has taken nearly 20 years to persuade my kidnappers to let me go."

Overturning his conviction, Lord Justice Holroyd said Mr Malkinson could "leave the court free and no longer be subject to the conditions of licence".

Police also apologised for what they described as a "grave miscarriage of justice".'

Experts warn of ‘devastating effect’ as traditional male roles deemed ‘toxic’ by media, Hollywood

Article here. Excerpt:

'"Masculinity" has become a dirty word to some. The American Psychological Association has released guidelines calling traditional masculinity "harmful," and Hollywood has been open about its disdain, with movies such as last weekend's much-hyped "Barbie."

According to a recent Politico/Ipsos poll, 36% of Americans believe "entertainment and culture make it hard to feel proud to be a traditional guy." Similarly, 31% believe the Democrat Party is "hostile" to masculine values.

"It's pretty clear that the media views masculinity in only two ways: stupid or toxic," comedian Tim Young told Fox News Digital. "Like Barbieland, the concept of equality between men and women according to the media is fictional - and where there could be a chance to have everyone get along, their spin on things is to be divisive and put down men."

Ukraine war: Russia expands pool of men eligible for call-up

Article here. Excerpt:

'Russia is raising the maximum age at which men can be conscripted from 27 to 30, making more of them liable to serve in the armed forces.

The change was passed by the lower house of parliament on Tuesday.

The package of measures comes as Moscow seeks to boost troop numbers to defend territory gained in its invasion of Ukraine last year.

A senior Russian MP said the new law was written with a major conflict in mind.

"It already smells like a big war," Andrei Kartapolov, head of the Russian parliament's defence committee, told MPs.'

Young boys and men in this country are not okay, and we are all paying the price for it.

South Africa: Men challenged to work on developing new forms of masculinity

Article here. Excerpt:

'“Dominating, aggressive forms of hegemonic masculinity are not meeting the needs of men or women to live nurtured, emotive and interconnected lives. Because both women and men suffer under hegemonic masculinities, it is pivotal that men work toward gender equality and developing new forms of masculinities,” Tshoaedi said.

Hegemonic masculinity is defined as a practice that legitimises men's dominant position in society, while justifying the subordination of marginalised groups and women.

Tshoaedi argued that men’s involvement in gender equality will have a “humanising effect”.

“The concept of 'caring masculinities' encourages men to participate in projects on gender equality. It calls for the adoption of values and characteristics of care, which negate hegemonic masculinities.

“Caring masculinities requires men to rethink ideas of power and how we use that power. It calls for using one’s power to engage in resistance against patriarchal domination and control that is harmful,” Tshoaedi said.'

If I made a movie that treated women the way Barbie treats men, feminists would want me executed

Article here. Excerpt:

'What is the patriarchy?

I bet most people reading this haven’t a clue.

Even I don’t really understand it, and according to radical feminists, I’m supposed to be the very personification of what it supposedly represents.

Yet it’s a word that is said so relentlessly in the smash-hit new Barbie movie that it’s worth knowing exactly what it means.

The literal translation, derived from the ancient Greek word “patriarkhēs,” is “rule of the father” and denoted the reality at the time that men were the titular heads of most families and organizations.

But in recent times, the concept of “the patriarchy” has been hijacked and corrupted by feminazis to suggest that every aspect of life and society is dominated by powerful, privileged males over subjugated, underprivileged females.

In short: Men are evil oppressors, women are unimpeachably perfect victims, and anyone who dares challenge this notion is a disgusting misogynist.'

Biden Admin Gives Soros-Backed Group Millions To Teach Young Puerto Ricans About 'Toxic Masculinities'

Article here. Excerpt:

'The Biden administration gave $2 million to a George Soros-backed nonprofit to stop violent crime in Puerto Rico by teaching the island's young men about "structural racism and toxic masculinities."

President Joe Biden's Justice Department in October awarded the lucrative grant to Taller Salud, a "feminist, culturally specific nonprofit organization" in Puerto Rico. The money comes from the department's Community-Based Violence Intervention and Prevention Initiative, which aims to address crime through police alternatives. Taller Salud, which receives funding from liberal billionaire George Soros's Open Society Foundations, will use the $2 million to further implement its "community violence intervention program," which includes "public education campaigns" to address "structural racism and toxic masculinities" among Puerto Rican men between the ages of 15 and 30.'

'As a UPS delivery driver in Dallas, Texas, Seth Pacic is intimately familiar with the dangers of extreme heat. After a long day’s work through record-breaking temperatures in summer 2011, he found himself dry heaving in the parking lot, incapable of driving home until he spent an hour and a half in the air-conditioned office.

“It was one of the worst feelings I’ve ever had in my entire life,” he said. “I didn’t feel like I fully recovered for a couple of weeks.”'

Lesbian domestic violence proves it’s not just a male problem

Article here. Excerpt:

'You may recall the campaign running on national television a few years ago. The ads were part of the Australian government’s campaign designed ‘to help break the cycle of violence against women and their children’.

It suggested that all of the perpetrators of domestic violence were strictly male. For example, the Albanese Labor government is presently funding a range of new initiatives through this budget to help deliver the National Plan to End Violence against Women and Children 2022-32.

But what about domestic violence against men?

I have no intention of minimising the problem of domestic violence against women and children. One must speak out loud and clear about violence against anyone regardless of age, gender, and sexual orientation.

However, it is a myth that domestic violence is all about men hurting women in heterosexual relationships. Domestic violence is also a ‘silent epidemic’ in lesbian relationships.

Jennifer Horgan: Violence relates to men, though not all men, and men must change it

Article here. Excerpt:

'Another week passes and another woman is killed by a man known to her. Yet boys and men take issue with violence being presented as a problem with men.

Men cause violence. Men are responsible for violence. Men are violent.

Women have been fighting for decades to shift the responsibility of violence from the victim to the perpetrator, from women back to men. But men and boys push back against these phrases, demanding qualifying words like ‘some’ or ‘not all.’

The reaction is difficult to take when violence in society is statistically the work of men. Is the male ego so fragile, I’ve often asked myself? Why can’t a man nod his head and say: ‘Yes, it is a male problem and it is truly awful’?'

Being An Andrew Tate Fan Is a Walking Red Flag

Article here. Excerpt:

'For many of us, it’s not very hard to see why boys and men are in crisis. We live in a society which tends to casually and routinely denigrate manhood, commitment, marriage, and fatherhood.

Self-determination and sexual promiscuity reign. The birth rate is down, marriages are falling, and divorce is up. Being masculine in the right sense of the word is shunned. To compound the masculinity crisis we are facing, a great proportion of people are no longer able – or willing – to differentiate between male and female for fear of being seen as politically incorrect. This is well evidenced in the acceptance of and ideological takeover of transgenderism, especially among the young, many of whom accept the lie that there is no such thing as biological sex, hook, line and sinker.
