    We’ve heard it all before: tales of the Far East enraptured in mystique and intrigue. Men of yesteryear such as Marco Polo and Lafcadio Hearn taking the roads less traveled and venturing into territories once seen incomprehensible to the Western palate.Despite much of their content being praised for its integrity and nostalgia, unfortunately, much of the material and reporting you see on Japan nowadays borders on mainstream clickbait and blue pill perspectives. Catered to English audiences, the American male is rationed a hearty staple of “OMG Japan is <insert snarky comment here>” from the conformist bastion of Western news platforms.The...

You will sleep with thinner women who don’t have attitude American women can be quite beautiful if they maintain their appearance, but there still exists problems with their attitude that comes from two things: (1) A female-worship culture that makes them entitled and arrogant, and (2) A tidal wave of thirsty men giving an avalanche of affections directly to their iPhones. Foreign women simply have better personalities: they are sweeter, kinder, more deferential, more interesting, and...

    Playboy magazine, now a relic in the legacy of its founder, Hugh Hefner, was not so long ago the sex educator of the young men of America. So pervasive was its influence that a running joke at the time was "a generation of men, having learned about the female body from Playboy's famous centerfolds, were astonished on their wedding nights to discover that their wives don't come with staples in their navels." Pop nudity was a rationed commodity when Hefner's magazine made marketing sex almost legitimate, and made him a rich hedonist in silk pajamas and a dark-green velvet jacket...
  • Five Lessons From The GOP Special Election Loss In Florida

    Rod Thomson Republicans lost a seat big in the Florida Legislature Tuesday that carries ridiculously outsized implications — because everything since November 2016 is DefCon 1 Armageddon for Democrats. In this era of The Woman and #MeToo, the race pitted a female Democrat against a male Republican in a fairly even district. Republican James Buchanan, son of Congressman Vern Buchanan lost to liberal Democrat lawyer Margaret Good. The House District covers northern Sarasota County, including the Democrat-dominated City of Sarasota, and has flipped between Republican and Democrat over the years. Most recently it was held by a Republican who chose...

    The U.S. Marine Corps will no longer require prospective officers to pass a punishing combat endurance test to graduate from the services Infantry Officer Course. Marine Corps Commandant Gen. Robert Neller quietly made the shift to standards in November, altering the test from a pass/fail requirement to just one of many exercises measured as part of overall IOC evaluation, the Marine Corps Times first reported on Thursday. The course is considered among the militarys toughest training programs, with about a quarter of all students failing to complete it, according to the Washington Post. Most of the 30-plus women who have...

I was like: Im taking it by the balls and doing it. Danielle Sinay, emboldened by the womens movement, asked her boyfriend of three years to marry her in October.

    Men and women Uber drivers prefer different locations and hours. REMY GABALDA/AFP/Getty Images Economists at Stanford University and the University of Chicago conducted an unprecedented study recently on the pay equality between men and women in the gig economy, where workers get to pick their own hours and get paid by project, instead of a fixed salary. The study sampled workers from one of the largest gig platforms of todayUber. After tracking 1.8 million drivers (for Uber X and Uber Pool) nationally from January 2015 to March 2017, researchers found that male drivers, on average, make seven percent more than...

    Ellen Pompeo became the highest-paid actress on a TV drama in January, signing a two-year extension with Greys Anatomy for a whopping $575,000 per episode. Pompeo revealed her $20 million payday to The Hollywood Reporter earlier this month, but now tells Jimmy Kimmel she came forward about her big salary to teach other women a lesson. As women, you know, its not only about whats done to us or whats not given to us. Its what dont we ask for, the 48-year-old told Kimmel. I think that as much as we can point the finger at other people and...

    The state legislature is moving on an aggressive attempt to reconfigure student health centers from places of healing to abortion franchises. A move is underway to transform California public universities from institutions dedicated to educating and empowering the nations next generation of leaders into abortion vendors. The California state assembly is now considering SB 320, a measure that would mandate that all California state-funded universities administer RU-486, a drug designed to induce abortion, on their campuses. The idea is to have schools partner with mega-abortion providers so that students at risk from a lonely and potentially dangerous abortion can access...

    Mallory Millett: How bizarre it is to have to argue the obvious; to have to prove over and over again what is self-evident so let me be as offensive as I possibly can: Men are men and women are women. They are essentially different and designed for a natural division of labor. Period. I get a kick out of the feminists love affair with the word empowerment. They have clever formulas for ensnaring hapless souls into their deceits. One of their slicker moves is to create a vocabulary designed to get around long-held beliefs, mores, taboos or fears. Pro-choice is...

    Missouri lawmakers listened Tuesday as a woman held her infant son and told them not to ban late-term abortions. She was one of several abortion activists and pro-life advocates who testified about a bill to ban abortions after 20 weeks during a Missouri House hearing, the Columbia Missourian reports. The legislation, state House Bill 1266, sponsored by state Rep. Donna Lichtenegger, R-Jackson, would prohibit abortions after 20 weeks when unborn babies are capable of feeling intense pain. If a nervous system is fully functional, it feels pain, so thats why we are wanting to not have an abortion after 20...

    President Donald Trump said many words during his hour and 20 minute long State of the Union address Tuesday evening, but he did not mention women once. Trumps first year in office was a landmark year for women, as the #MeToo and Times Up movements shaped political and popular culture. Multiple elected and appointed officials were forced to resign after admitting to sexual harassment and assault, and more women than ever will run for office in 2018. The president, meanwhile, made several attempts to limit access to reproductive care, refused to call himself a feminist and was accused of cheating...
