    RUSH: Okay. Are you ready for this story out of a college in Michigan, Eastern Michigan University? Eastern Michigan University has canceled all productions… (interruption) You’re nodding. (interruption) Have you heard of this in there? (interruption) Oh, you haven’t. Wait ’til you hear this. Eastern Michigan University is canceling all production and performance of the Vagina Monologues. Why do you think Eastern Michigan University in eastern Michigan is canceling all production and performances of the Vagina Monologues? If you’re thinking it’s morality based, you would be so dead wrong that it would be embarrassing. If you’re thinking it’s because old...

    Men are scared of women now. and SurveyMonkey’s new #MentorHer poll reveals Friday that 60% of male managers report feeling “too nervous” about being accused of harassment to interact with women in “common workplace” activities such as mentoring, socializing and one-on-one meetings. That’s a 32% spike from 2018, with an additional 36% of men saying they now actively avoid women in junior-level positions — effectively chopping down their shot at climbing the corporate ladder. “The vast majority of managers and senior leaders are men,” says Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook COO, SurveyMonkey board member and founder of LeanIn.Org, in a statement....

    Buffalo Grove executive Scott Kennedy and his escort-turned-girlfriend were allegedly in the midst of a massive $5.8 million fraud scheme when he wrote her a lengthy email in October 2016 laying out his worries about their crumbling relationship. Kennedy already had used his company’s credit to buy his new love, Crystal Lundberg, everything she dreamed about, from extravagant Christmases for her kids to sports cars, exotic trips and fancy jewelry, according to federal prosecutors. But instead of returning the affection, Lundberg had picked up and moved to California, racking up hundreds of thousands of dollars more on the company dime,...

    Shortly before his death, Dymond sent Callaghan a text saying: "I can’t live without you. I just wanted to come and see you. I just wanted to say sorry before I go. My life is not worth living without you." Callaghan revealed that Dymond had been diagnosed with depression in February but obtained a doctor’s note in order to take part in the show, insisting he would prove to her he had remained faithful. Dymond had only recently discovered he was a grandfather after reconnecting with his son shortly before appearing on the show. He had yet to meet his...

    WordPress reportedly banned the popular right-wing manosphere blog Chateau Heartiste on Friday in the latest assault on Free Speech at the hands of Big Tech. When one visits the site now it says it was suspended for unspecified violations of WordPress' "terms of service." An internet archive of the page shows the blog has been around since 2011 without any issues. One of the last posts made on the site was titled, "Corporate Conspiracy to Silence and Impoverish Political Dissidents." Chateau Heartiste’s second to last post before WordPress nuked him from the internet: — Eli Schiff (@eli_schiff) May 10,...

    A bikini model claimed her good looks are to blame for her single status on This Morning today. Mother-of-two Jenna Thompson, who has a five and one-year-old, split with ex two years ago and since then has told how dating has been a bit of a disaster. 'I think I intimidate nice guys,' she explained to presenters Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield. 'I seem to attract guys who are only after one thing. People who think they’ll have a go and just want hook ups. No one is looking for anyone that serious.'

    You think, “Nope, progressives can’t possibly be any dumber,” and then they proceed to reset the dumbness bar. The latest example is Alyssa Milano, who has publicly announced she’s not going to have sex anymore until people can once again kill babies without restraint. If that’s what counts as foreplay these days, count us conservatives out.The 80s TV teen turned leftist Twitter twerp recently tweeted that “Our reproductive rights are being erased.

    Kylie-Anne Kelly can’t remember the exact moment she became her boyfriend’s one and only, his what would I do without you, but she does remember neglecting her own needs to the point of hospitalization. ..Kelly’s boyfriend refused to talk to other men or a therapist about his feelings, so he’d often get into “funks,” picking pointless fights when something was bothering him. Eventually, Kelly became his default therapist, soothing his anxieties as he fretted over work or family problems. After three years together, when exhaustion and anxiety landed her in the hospital and her boyfriend claimed he was “too busy”...

    One of the greatest paradoxes about birth control is that, while it may make sex seem more available to women, many women taking the drugs feel less in the mood. The connections between hormonal contraceptives and symptoms of low libido are long established. But research reveals further reasons women may be experiencing less sexual pleasure while on the Pill, ring, patch, implant, or IUD. Not only have hormonal contraceptives been shown to significantly decrease women’s testosterone levels, and lead to severe depression and suicide attempts . . .

    AURORA, Illinois -- A woman was swept off her feet and then taken to the cleaners, losing $250,000. She thought she was falling in love but instead, was betrayed. The FBI calls it the confidence scam or the romance scam, and said it consistently ranks in the top three online schemes, preying on people who are looking for companionship and love. But before you know it, you've lost hundreds of thousands of dollars, just like Laura Bockus. "How could you do this to somebody. I mean, seriously, how could you sleep at night doing this to someone," she wondered. Bockus...
  • Taming Men from Toxic to Timid

    Identity politics revives sexist stereotypes, and like most stereotypes, they diminish us all to a multitude of prejudices. Generalizations seek the simplest common denominator and usually sink to the lowest. In conversations about manhood, which, in certain circles, is regarded as something like the black plague of the 14th century, we're reduced to talking about the toxic male as the key to understanding the nature of men. We know that not all men suffer the curse of venomous aggressiveness, but the popular media version of the male animal makes the slightest aggression -- hugs, flirtatious banter and harmless hand and...

    Abigail Finney was in her freshman year at Purdue University in Indiana in February 2017 when she fell asleep in her boyfriend’s dorm room. During the night he snuggled up to her in bed in the pitch black, his hand grazing her breast, and they began having sex. She soon stopped to go to the bathroom and, when she returned, discovered, to her horror, that it wasn’t her boyfriend who was in bed with her. Was it rape? Ms. Finney thought so and went to the police, who arrested Donald Grant Ward, the 19-year-old impostor. Mr. Ward, a friend of...

    In July 2018, Natural Womanhood CEO Gerard Migeon published an article called “When Men Resent Natural Family Planning,” which included an anecdote from a male friend who told him “I hate NFP.” I can totally identify with that perspective. At the end of the article discussing other possible factors influencing his friend’s challenging love life outside of NFP, Gerard opened up the floor to hear other men’s experiences with NFP in an anonymous online survey. Here is my experience. I agree 100% there is a huge need for us men to have a space to talk about difficulties with Natural...

    A Voice For Men ^ | April 13, 2019 | John Davis
    When the media “reports” that men are “afraid” of commitment, it’s a continuation of a 50 year trend to mock and disparage men for their reproductive choices. Men aren’t “afraid” of commitment. When men walk away from “commitment” and marriage, they are making intelligent choices. Fear doesn’t enter into men’s minds when they walk away from women in our “modern” culture. There was once a time when marriage was an honorable institution. It was not that long ago. As mankind rose from primitive savagery, to civilizing the world, men were able to bring art, beauty, truth and goodness to the...

    Over the last few decades, we’ve seen a revolutionary change in the way marriage works in America. In your great-grandparents’ heyday, relationships were more about raising a family and making a living than love. That doesn’t mean there wasn’t any love involved; it just means the motivations were often a little different than they are today. Women wanted to get out from under the same roof as their parents and have kids. When a woman found a decent man who treated her well and seemed like he could provide for her and her children, that was often enough of a...

    We live in a world of catchphrases that sound good but don’t align with facts. “Speaking truth to power” calling out “rape culture” or “toxic masculinity” makes for an effective outrage machine and in the internet age that seems to be all that is needed to garner government funding. Of course the average person knows that rape is not actually condoned by anyone in our culture. In a way, that is why the phrase is so effective in generating outrage. We also know that men have played an essential role in innovating and improving civilization in ways that are not...

    (Newser) – A New Jersey woman who allegedly used garden shears to ruin her neighbor's Playboy bunny lawn display has been charged with criminal mischief—and she's forced to look at the mannequins once more. reports dentist Wayne Gangi resurrected his lingerie-clad display outside his Clifton office over the weekend and beefed it up in the process, this time joining his five female mannequins with two male ones. Though the mannequins are wearing bunny ears, holding Easter baskets, and surrounded by eggs, he says his lawn ornaments aren't meant to celebrate Easter but the late Hugh Hefner's birthday, which was...

    Dear How to Do It, I am a single woman in her early 30s. I’m attractive and have never had issues attracting a partner. But after a series of disappointing relationships, each around a year, I’m just not in a mood to engage emotionally with men right now. The thing is, I have a high sex drive, and I can’t fully satisfy myself on my own—though believe me, I try. The cliché is that this should be an easy problem to fix: Plenty of men want to have sex with a woman with no strings, right? Here are my limitations:...
