    Hundreds of women showed up for free gun training in Detroit, Mich., on Sunday. The event, which has been held annually for the last six years, saw its best turnout yet. Organizers said about 700 women expressed interest in the training and around 600 attended. The goal, they said, was helping women learn how to protect themselves. "We teach women how to shoot and discharge a firearm, and a personal protection strategy," Rick Ector, the founder of Legally Armed in Detroit and creator of the event, told the Detroit Free Press. "This is an event to see if owning a...

    It happened again last week. Two Turkish nationals in Schwerin, Germany were arrested for raping a 13-year-old girl after forcing themselves into her home.Recently, a judge in Germany acquitted a Turkish drug dealer of raping one of his customers last August. He had forced himself on her for four hours and left her incapacitated for weeks. He told the judge that in the culture from where he came, what she "had experienced as rape" might be considered merely "wild sex."What "culture" is this?According to the Turkish women's rights organization "We Will Stop the Murders of Women," which publishes monthly reports,...

    President Trump’s first foreign trip has brought a big benefit to his daughter's pet project. As Trump traveled the Middle East, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates pledged $100 million to a fund for women entrepreneurs proposed by Ivanka Trump, according to a report. The Wall Street Journal reported Saudi Arabia and the U.A.E. would donate to the Women Entrepreneurs Fund, a program Ivanka Trump pitched to World Bank Group President Jim Yong Kim and has discussed with several world leaders. The fund’s money will be controlled by World Bank, not Ivanka, but she continues fundraising for it even...

    Women expelled from streets in central Paris, police unable to restore safety Tweet linkWomen from the Chapelle-Pajol district (not the banlieue, but right in the centre of Paris, close to Gare Du Nord, the Sacré-Coeur, Montmartre and the Moulin Rouge) are no longer visible on its streets and squares, they are absent from its metro stations, and they are no longer welcome in its cafes, bars and restaurants.

    Feminist icon Gloria Steinem made an impassioned plea for preserving and extending women's right to abortion, calling it "a powerful and necessary remedy in the fight against sexual injustice and global warming. Nothing is worse for the planet than more people. Interdicting the creation of more people is crucial if we are to avert a holocaust." As Steinem sees it, men force women into bearing children. "Considering the toll it takes on a woman's body, no woman in her right mind would willingly submit to childbirth," she contended. "Add to this the tremendous sacrifice of free time that must be...

    Pop star Katy Perry recently joined the ranks of celebrities who have donned Islamic headscarves when she sported a hijab-like outfit to the Met Gala, New York’s No. 1 fashion event. The headscarf has been used by many celebrities or politicians for a variety of reasons. It is sometimes employed as a tool for show or entertainment. Other times it is a fake, misleading and damaging “symbol” of activism. It is also worn out of a very misguided “respect” for a religious ideology. In all of these cases, it is still a form of submission to Islamists and a betrayal...

  • Girls do not like to date nice boys

    05/14/2017 1:33:01 PM PDT · by SamAdams76 · 126 replies
    They just don't. In my high school years, I was Richie Cunningham. The earnest young boy from "Happy Days" who always was looking to please others, especially the adults in his life. As a result, we were walked all over, taken advantage of and subsequently, not dated by girls. Now Richie Cunningham might have had a girlfriend or two during the fictitious "Happy Days" run but in my real-life Richie Cunningham phase, I had zero girlfriends. I did have several dates that went disastrously wrong because I thought dating was all about being a nice guy. It wasn't. During that...

    Society places such high importance on getting married that it’s easy to feel almost like a failure if you never manage to find a man to settle down with. While it’s fantastic if you do eventually find a guy you’d like to marry, it’s really no big deal if you never end up getting hitched as long as you have these things: 1.

    At the end of the day, most men just want a woman who’s nice. “Nice,” to a man, means being soft, gentle and kind. It means asking your husband how his day was and really listening. It means doing something nice for him with no expectation of getting something in return—you know, the way you did when you were dating. But wait a minute, you say. Don’t women want the same thing? A man who’s nice? Not exactly. Most women do want a man who’s kind, but that’s not the same as nice. Ask any guy you know, and he’ll...

    My daughter, Cassie, recently had a visit from a childhood friend. It had been 17 years since they’d seen each other.  After visiting and sharing stories of their lives, Ashley, my daughter’s friend, commented that Cassie had accomplished so much, earning a master’s degree and starting a successful career and she was “just a mom.”My daughter looked down at her friend’s beautiful little girls through tear-filled eyes, “Ashley,” she said, “I would give anything to have what you have. Just a mom are the three most powerful words in the world.”I often wonder how many other mothers feel like Ashley.  It’s kind...

But on Tuesday, she finally got what she's always wanted when Picayune Memorial High School presented her with an honorary degree at her home in Metairie.
