"@jos I’ve never tried this before so I’m not sure it will work. Although I don’t get into Hollywood stuff so I’m a little late, this is much too rapey to ignore and probably is a feminist issue. “http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/envelope/gossip/la-et-mg-mccarthy-kisses-bieber-amas-justin-bieber,0,3577726.story” Some [...]" · View

    Here’s a link that looks at the study data and that does not support your assertions. In fact it refutes it. When mothers ask for custody, custody was awarded to the fathers on only 8 of 515 case. Fathers were granted custody only 1.6% of the time. When fathers asked for custody, mothers were granted [...]

    One more thing. Feminists claim that MRAs don’t actually try to help men. They say what we need are more feminists. Feminists are already addressing men’s issues. Care to put your money where your mouth is? Their is a documentary in the making called Breaking the Silence. It has a female director. You should like [...]

    “don’t be a dick.”

    Doesn’t sound sexist or stereotypical at all. I guess we’re lucky to have feminism, hey right. LOL

    When we talk about voter suppression laws such as requiring a picture ID to vote in order to combat voter fraud often the counter argument is that it’s a cure for a problem that doesn’t exist in that the problem is extremely rare and so wouldn’t impact an election. If we used the same standard [...]

    “between sixty and seventy-five per cent of them were involved in “contraband smuggling and/or having sexual relationships with inmates.” According to the government, Tavon White had sexual relationships with four guards and fathered five children by them. (One of the guards had “Tavon” tattooed on her wrist; another had the name on her neck.) An [...]

  • John commented on the blog post The intellectual defense of sexual harassment (Hint: there isn’t one)   3 months, 1 week ago · View

    I have a question. I don’t like to be touched. I don’t know if it’s social conditioning or something that is inherent to me, but I’ve always found unnecessary touching from either men or women harassing. Some feminist men have decried the inability of men to experience “platonic touch”. Many women have placed their hand [...]

    “Perry also objects to rules regarding cross-gender monitoring—the new regulations require that only same-sex guards conduct both direct and remote monitoring of inmates in states of undress—because, he says, women who work in men’s prisons would lose their jobs. ” IMO if there is a legitemate reason to argue that gender is a BFOQ (bona [...]

    “And here I thought the wrist was possibly the most androgynous body part.”

    Limp or straight? Although that would be a terrible implication, that’s the only thing I can think of that this could be marketing to.

  • John commented on the blog post Chart of the Day: There’s even a gender wage gap in babysitting   4 months ago · View

    There’s only about a 3% difference in the wages 14.50 to 15.00 an hour. Could it be that people who are enlightened enough to hire a male babysitters simply pay more? Not to get political, but I suspect the blue state are wealthier, have a higher standard of living, and are more likely to hire [...]

    I have a question. Why is feministing advocating that rape cases be removed from the chain of command in military court, but advocating that rapes occurring at colleges are handled by the colleges? The reason why there are all these Title IX complaints is that the colleges have been looking out for their own best [...]

    I remember a controversy in Chicago about 25 or so years ago concerning the minority set aside program benefiting minorities and women. The controversy was that when the contracts were examined, the vast majority went to white women. “White Women Get Contracts In the $210 million Dan Ryan Expressway repair project here, white women have [...]

  • I don’t think this will be a popular comment or even if it will be approved, but when I encounter an ad that says X owned business, that moves to the bottom of my list when selecting a service provider. That doesn’t mean I won’t pick it. It now has to be better than the [...]

    There was a rape case out of Chicago that got some coverage. Although it’s an older case, I was curious as to how it was adjudicated so I recently searched. The result didn’t get much coverage and maybe that’s an indication of how victims are treated also. It really illustrates the difficulty that victims have [...]

    “Now Corey–who has the power to reduce the charges or drop the case entirely–says they’ll try to triple Alexander’s original prison sentence from 20 to 60 years” Untrue, Angela Corey is seeking the exact same 20 year sentences for each of the 3 convictions she won in the first trial. The difference is that she [...]

    For those who feel men should step up in the family planning department and more options for birth control are better than fewer the Parsemus Foundation is trying to raise $37,000 to complete the testing of Vasalgel, a male form of birth control, before it can start human trials.

  • Why you hating on Mary Poppins? Julie Andrews played the main character for which the film was named. She was a bit more than a nanny so that could very well be a mischaracterization anyway. I remember it as a magical film in my youth. You’re probably too young, but you should watch it.
