  • ‘Violent’ Irondale man with ‘anti-government beliefs’ charged in nail bomb detonated outside Alabama AG’s office (Antifa)

    04/11/2024 8:11:48 AM PDT · by TigerClaws · 20 replies
    An Irondale man was taken into custody Wednesday on a federal indictment accusing him of detonating an explosive device outside the Alabama Attorney General’s Office. Kyle Benjamin Douglas Calvert, 26, is charged with malicious use of an explosive and possession of an unregistered destructive device. Charging documents against him say he also placed stickers on state buildings at the same time of the bombing depicting different graphics advocating for various political ideologies. Some included the phrase “Support your local antifa.” Antifa, short for Anti-Fascist, does not describe a particular group, but rather describes individuals who adhere to what they consider...

    Aww: isn't he sweet? Good boy! On Monday's CNN This Morning, CNN's Dana Bash and Kasie Hunt gave Republican Lance Trover a pat on the head for being "evolved" about the supposedly disparate press treatment of male and female sports coaches. The matter arose in the context of a long Washington Post profile of LSU women's basketball coach Kim Mulkey. After noting that the article "details her kind of pugnacious coaching personality," Hunt skeptically wondered: "Would we talk about that with a male coach? I don't know."Republican strategist Lance Trover, who recently toiled for Doug Burgum for President, replied: "I...
  • Sometimes I long for the life of a tradwife. Then I remember it’s a reactionary fantasy; The reality is so much darker (“anti-vaxxing, decrying contraception and woke liberal modernity”)

    …But I’m fascinated by tradwife life, why it appeals and what it’s selling.It’s less the campy, colour-saturated, submissive 50s-housewife cosplay (if you aren’t familiar, check out @esteecwilliams and prepare to hear that “God designed two genders for different purposes”). That feels like fantasy or fetish, designed, I suspect, to appeal mainly to men. (Some of the women who yearn to surrender to a male provider could be, as one astute TikToker put it, “mistaking wanting to be a trad wife with wanting universal basic income.”)But the other kind – families forging a wholesome, homesteading existence – taps into a longing...

    How feminist women have been seriously misunderstood.-Feminism is often misrepresented as an anti-men ideology. -Misogynistic men use the misandry trope as just cause for threats and abuse toward feminist women. -Research shows that feminists do not hold more hostility toward men than non-feminists or other men. -For women’s safety, it is important to resist and dispel misperceptions of feminism as anti-men. Feminists hold a strong belief that patriarchy harms everyone, including men, and that liberation will be had by all when we dismantle patriarchy and the sexist oppression it props up. Despite that, feminists remain seen by some as little...

    You may have noticed there’s a little bit of a war on in Gaza at the moment, and in order to stop the very worst of the bloodshed, the people of the region need YOUR help—in the shape of your spare tampons. What Gaza’s under-siege women need now most of all is not food, water, fuel, or medicine, but free Bodyform by the bucketload, because otherwise…THEY WILL ALL SURELY DIE. This is the alarmist message currently being gushed out substantially more than once per calendar month by feminist charities like MotherBeing, which sounds like some weird trans activist-approved word for...

    The heartbroken mother of a soldier held captive by Hamas terrorists today wept over her daughter's coffin after the 19-year-old and another hostage were found dead in Gaza's Al-Shifa hospital complex. That news came today, with the IDF confirming they had found the remains of Noa and another hostage Yehudit Weiss, 64, from a building adjacent to the hospital where Israeli soldiers are searching for a Hamas command centre. During the hospital raid in which Israeli troops found Noa and Yehudit's bodies, the IDF claimed its forces also found a tunnel shaft used by Hamas terrorists. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin...

Experts in the fight against rape and sexual abuse demanded to know why international women's organizations have remained silent about the horrific sex crimes Hamas committed in Israel on Oct. 7... And there's no doubt that they did: the experts, all women, who spoke on Nov. 12 in an online seminar organized by Jewish professional students at Harvard University, have been systematically gathering evidence since the attack.

    I know, that isn’t exactly a news flash. But has there ever been more definitive proof than the silence of most feminists in the face of Gaza’s brutal assault on Israeli women? Caroline McCaughey writes in the New York Sun: One of the first videos uploaded to social media of the Hamas terrorist attacks on October 7 showed the kidnapping of a 26-year-old Israeli, Noa Argamani, on the back of a motorcycle as she reaches out and screams, “Don’t kill me!” Another was of 23-year-old German national, Shani Louk, whose partially clothed, contorted body in the back of a pickup...

    Jezebel, a feminist US news site, was shut down by its owners on Thursday, with 23 people laid off and no plans for the outlet to resume publication. G/O Media, which owns Jezebel and other sites including Gizmodo and the Onion, announced the closure in a memo to staff, which was obtained by the Guardian. “Unfortunately, our business model and the audiences we serve across our network did not align with Jezebel’s,” Jim Spanfeller, the chief executive of G/O Media, wrote in the memo, which was sent to staff on Thursday morning. “And when that became clear, we undertook an...

  • Boys graduate high school at lower rates than girls, with lifelong consequences

    They attend the same classes with access to the same programs, and even come from the same families. But girls consistently are outperforming boys, graduating at higher rates at public high schools around the country. The gap between them is wide, often as wide as the achievement gap between students from affluent and low-income families, a problem that officials have tracked closely for years. But the reasons why boys are falling short are not as clear. Interviews with students, educators and researchers point to several factors. Men generally can earn the same wages as women with less education. But boys...

    A Starbucks barista’s secret note on a cup to a young female customer offering to “intervene” after a man started talking to her has generated heated debate online. Texas woman Brandy Selim Roberson first shared the story in a viral Facebook post last year. She praised the employee for stepping in when her 18-year-old daughter was approached by a man she didn’t know while studying by herself at a Corpus Christi location. The message on the cup read, “Are you okay? Do you want us to intervene? If you do, take the lid off the cup.” SNIP Author Rachel Wilson...

    Screengrab from a video shot as revellers realize Hamas gunmen are attacking. Girls were raped beside the corpses of their friends. In 2021, we were part of a grassroots team which rescued 400 women from Afghanistan. We have all, together and separately, worked on a range of feminist issues including rape, sex trafficking, honor killing, child marriage, and forced veiling. Together with thousands of other women, we have signed countless petitions and resolutions calling for freedom, justice, and safety for women globally. We cannot understand the feminist silence about what is happening to civilian Israelis in general and to Israeli...

    When I was 17, I became a feminist campaigner because I wanted to fight for a future where women feeling safe and being heard were considered everyday norms. I’m 61 now and still fighting as hard as ever for those basic rights, which remain infuriatingly beyond our reach. The fact that, even today — especially today — I would find it incredibly difficult to advise a woman who has been raped to go and report it to the police breaks my heart. My younger self would, rightly, be appalled. But I know that unless a woman fits the profile of...

    Yes! And I [the author] say this as someone who served in an army that boasts about its female soldiers. So I hope that even if you disagree with me, you'll bear with me and read till the end… FACT TIME * The Israeli defense forces stopped using actual female combat soldiers after 1948. This was when they noticed that coed combat units suffered close to 50% higher casualty rates than all male units, and were worlds less effective when it came to mission completion. * Due to this fact, women were barred from all combat roles in the IDF...

    Phyllis Schlafly was a brilliant thinker. Here is proof: “Suppose the pay gap between men and women were magically eliminated. If that happened, simple arithmetic suggests that half of women would be unable to find what they regard as a suitable mate.” “What I am defending is the real rights of women. A woman should have the right to be in the home as a wife and mother.” “I think the main goal of the feminist movement was the status degradation of the full-time homemaker. They really wanted to get all women out of the homes and into the workforce....
