  • Mass hysteria not black magic behind growing hair-chopping incidents: Experts

    Hindustan Times ^ | August 4, 2017 | Mass hysteria not black magic behind growing hair-chopping incidents: Experts
    A day after a 60-year-old woman was killed in Uttar Pradesh on suspicion of cutting off people’s hair and 11 more women complained of braids being chopped off in Delhi-NCR on Thursday, psychiatrists blamed mass hysteria as panic spread. Police, too, have requested people not look at these incidents as a “supernatural phenomenon” or work of a ghost. “From all the available evidence, it seems the women are cutting their own hair either consciously or in an altered sensorium, likely to seek attention,” said Dr Sudhir Khandelwal, former head of the department of psychiatry at All India Institute of Medical...
  • Money Manners: If my Date Doesn’t Reach for Her Wallet, What Should I Do?

    Q: I’m a 50-year-old guy who’s been divorced for about a year. I’m beginning to date again, but I’m uncertain who pays for what. A friend tells me that he always pays for the first date when he goes out to dinner with someone new. But after that, he splits the check 50/50, unless there’s a special reason not to, like it’s her birthday. This sounds reasonable to me. But what should I do if, on the second date, the woman doesn’t reach for her wallet as I reach for mine? My friend says he just tells his date, “It...

    The Political Insider ^ | 17 August 2017
    If you didn’t see it, former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice from the Bush Administration went on Fox News to promote her new book: “Democracy: Stories from the Long Road to Freedom.” After what happened in Charlottesville, the topic is especially timely, which is why Fox and Friends host Brian Kilmeade immediately asked her an important question: “I want to talk about where your book starts, and that’s our Constitution. As an African-American woman, do you see yourself in this Constitution? Do you think that, when we look at nine of our first twelve presidents as slave owners, should we...

    Former Michael Einfeld Management assistant Rosette Laursen claimed in an Aug. 8 Facebook post that Einfeld sent obscene emails criticizing her for requesting time off to observe "A Day Without a Woman" in March. Talent manager Michael Einfeld has issued an apology to "friends, colleagues and clients" after one of his former assistants, Rosette Laursen, wrote a lengthy Aug. 8 Facebook post detailing sexist remarks he made about her in emails and other offensive alleged behavior in the workplace. In the emails, Einfeld called her an “uppity selfish c—” and suggested that "someone should sew her vagina shut" for requesting...
  • The New York Times wants us to believe communists have better sex

    Fox News ^ | August 14, 2017 | John R. Lott, Jr.
    In Sunday’s New York Times, Kristen Ghodsee paints a glowing picture of women’s lives in the former Soviet Union. From full voting rights in 1917, liberalized divorce laws, high labor force participation – and yes, reportedly better sex – life was supposedly much better for women. Ghodsee writes, “Although the Communists never fully reformed domestic patriarchy, Communist women enjoyed a degree of self-sufficiency that few Western women could have imagined.” Of course, full voting rights don’t count for very much when there is always only one candidate allowed on the ballot.

    Rosie O’Donnell urged her female fans to start their own party if the Democratic Party backs candidates who don’t support abortion rights. "WOMEN SHOULD FORM OUR OWN PARTY IF DEMS DO THIS #dontYOUdare" she tweeted Tuesday. O'Donnell's tweet was in response to Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Chairman Ben Ray Luján revealing there will be no "litmus test" for Democratic candidates going into the 2018 midterm elections. "As we look at candidates across the country, you need to make sure you have candidates that fit the district, that can win in these districts across America," Luján told The Hill. The comedian...

    According to an August 11 article published by #Harper’s Bazaar, anyone who is married to a supporter of President Trump needs to file for divorce immediately. That’s the advice given by the article’s author, #Jennifer Wright, who cites two recent high-profile divorce cases in which a wife filed for divorce on grounds of irreconcilable political differences. In July, a former Miami Dolphins cheerleader by the name of Lynn Aronberg split from her husband, Florida state attorney Dave Aronberg. The wife, who identified herself as a staunch Republican, claimed that she felt “increasingly isolated” in her marriage to a Democrat. More...

    The biggest, and most telling, example of this is Leach’s realization that one reason many conservative women don’t identify as “feminist” is because of “what they perceive to be the left’s ‘victimhood culture.’” Leach is beside herself. “There wasn't any conversation about or acknowledgement of the ways it’s hard” for women to “chase their goals,” Leach complains. These women were ignoring the “harsh realities of being a woman!” Leach then spends a long paragraph telling us what these “harsh realities” are: wage gaps, cyberbullying, more wage gaps, Donald Trump. How could these women, who say they care about women’s equality,...

    There’s a persistent trope in science fiction and fantasy about a society consisting solely of women. It’s a peaceful and prosperous society, free from all violence. There may be some female warriors, who are somehow better than all male warriors everywhere despite having no real pressure or battles to harden themselves on. As a female reader with a strong taste for rational thinking, I am begging authors to stop doing this. Every female over the age of seven knows that a planet full of only women would not be peaceful. Every female Odd will picture this situation as The Special...

    Conservative Millennial Women Are Here For Female Empowerment—Just Don't Call Them Feminists Recently I spent two days at the hub of conservatism in Washington, D.C. Nope, not the White House, but the Heritage Foundation for the Network of Enlightened Women’s National Conference—also known as NeW—where a group of college-aged conservative females gathered to discuss and learn about Republican policy and leadership. And yes, Kellyanne Conway was there. As a 24-year-old liberal woman who cried watching Hillary Clinton lose the election live at New York’s Javits Center, this wasn’t a room I ever thought I’d find myself in, and my preconceived...

    Over 60 women are reportedly considering a sexism and “pay gap” lawsuit against Google, according to the Guardian. “James Finberg, the civil rights attorney working on the possible legal action on behalf of the female employees, told the Guardian they contend they have earned less than men at Google despite equal qualifications and comparable positions,” the news outlet reported on Wednesday. “Others, he said, have struggled in other ways to advance their careers at Google due to a ‘culture that is hostile to women.'” In his interview with The Guardian, Finberg claimed the employees “are concerned that women are channeled...

    Hillary Clinton might be a little late to the Wonder Woman party, but she definitely made up for it at her special screening of the blockbuster film this weekend. On Sunday, the Alamo Drafthouse's Brooklyn location tweeted a photo of a smiling Bill and Hillary Clinton with some of the theater's employees, writing, "Honored to have hosted @HillaryClinton & @billclinton last night for a special screening of WONDER WOMAN!" The screening has been a long time coming: In a video message at the Women in Film Crystal + Lucy Awards in Los Angeles in June, Hillz expressed her desire to...

    When Emily Maitlis of BBC Newsnight landed her first (and possibly as it transpired, her last) interview with the then-incoming Head of Communications for the White House, Anthony “the Mooch” Scaramucci, she could have had little idea beyond her briefing notes what to expect. What viewers actually saw and heard wasn’t just a bad omen of things to come, but an exercise in that peculiar blend of undisguised contempt and ferocious masculine-driven competition that has become a decisive marker of the violent underpinnings of Donald Trump and his administration. Women beware. Scaramucci rose to the occasion of having a well-trained...

The feminist vegan owner of Handsome Her eatery in Melbourne, Australia, is making them pay an 18 per cent “man tax” as well as giving women priority over seating. Owner Alex O’Brien told Broadsheet website: “I do want people to think about it, because we’ve had this (pay discrepancy) for decades and decades and we’re bringing it to the forefront of people’s minds. “I like...

    The American Conservative ^ | 07/11/2017 | Maddie Mehr
    Alexis de Tocqueville came to America in 1831 to study its prisons, but ended up documenting nearly every facet of American life. With journalistic curiosity, the French aristocrat scrutinized America’s religion and government, its society and industry. He wanted to know what allowed the United States to surpass Europe as the world’s political and economic superpower. His conclusion? Women. The women Tocqueville saw were not CEOs or celebrities, politicians or professional athletes. They were largely confined to the home: cleaning, cooking, taking care of children. But to the young political historian, no position seemed more important. “There have never been...

    AFTER her husband secretly married the second time in Thailand 15 years ago, Salmah Khalid has been supporting her four children on her own, working long hours and sometimes borrowing money to make ends meet. The 43-year-old nurse said she only found out about the second marriage two months after her husband remarried, following which they had a huge row. Salmah said she didn’t see her husband for a year after that. “In the past, he would give me RM300 for household expenses and we would split the loan repayment for the house. After he married, I had to take...

    It’s now been six dizzying and nauseating months since Donald Trump took the oath of office, and the brightest spot on the American political landscape is the grassroots resistance that has sprung up to counter his regime. No previous president ever faced so many protests so early in his term, and the millions who have taken to the streets since January can already take significant credit for stalling and frustrating key aspects of Trump’s agenda, from his Muslim ban to his bid to repeal the Affordable Care Act. There are numerous qualities that distinguish this organizing upsurge from past waves...

    At the close of a 20-year run for the Women of Faith tour, the brand-new version of the women’s gathering with a much younger target demographic—the Belong Tour—was poised to take the reins as the next big event for evangelical women. But due to “critically low ticket sales and the high cost of producing these events,” the 2017 tour was canceled before the first scheduled event took place, according to the event organizers. The event billed itself as a two-day event for “every woman—for conservatives and liberals, young and old, married and single, those who go to church and...
