    An Ohio sex worker allegedly had contact with more than 200 clients despite knowing she was HIV-positive — and state officials are now warning anybody who engaged in “risky business” with her to come forward and get tested. Linda Leccesse, 30, had contact with at least 211 clients from multiple states in the two years since Jan. 1 2022, which is around when she took an HIV test and learned she was positive for the potentially deadly virus, authorities said. Leccesse solicited most of those clients on Market Street in Marietta — a small city in southeast Ohio on the...

    The dating app Bumble issued an apology this week for its recent advertisements that appeared to insult the idea of women choosing not to have sex or date. The company was criticized as being disrespectful of women. According to the BBC, Bumble’s new ad campaign (targeted towards women) included taglines such as, “A vow of celibacy is not the answer” and “Thou shalt not give up on dating and become a nun.” Bumble said the ads were supposed to be funny amidst the frustrations of modern dating, but many people did not find them to be humorous. Fast Company reported...

    You’re not imagining it: Women are at the forefront of today’s leftist movement, accompanied by emasculated men. What’s going on? One of the things we’ve seen in videos of the anti-Israel protests is a parade of young, white women with jihadi wraps on their heads, screaming and chanting for the cause of Hamas, a Muslim terrorist sect that proudly tortures, rapes, and kills women just like them. Looking at these images, Heather MacDonald recently wrote an essay for City Journal, in which she asks the question that is on our minds: Why are all these plump, unhappy white girls protesting...

    … Bx, a Twitter libertarian and “independent investigator,” recently tweeted about a first date she went on that almost ended in disaster. Or as she wrote, “Last night I was on a first date and at the end of the night he opened my car door for me and my holstered gun fell out of my new purse and hit the road and my Shield Arms mag exploded and sent 9mm ammo flying everywhere, and then we spent the next 15 minutes trying to find all the ammo and the mag spring. Am I getting a second date?” She added,...
  • Hysterics for Hamas - Why have young women been so prominent in the recent campus chaos?

    The female voices rose high-pitched and shrill above the crowd: “Five, six, seven, eight, Israel is a terrorist state.” “We don’t want no Zionists here, say it loud, say it clear.” “Resistance is justified when people are occupied.” The voices that answered them were also overwhelmingly female, emanating from hundreds of students chanting and marching around tents pitched in front of Columbia University’s neoclassical Butler Library, part of an effort in late April to prevent the university from uprooting the encampment. The female tilt among anti-Israel student protesters is an underappreciated aspect of the pro-Hamas campus hysteria. True, when activists...

    Men are abandoning the Democratic Party, and people are beginning to notice. This weekend, President Donald Trump’s super PAC Make America Great Again released an ad targeting black men in rural Georgia. It features a white, professionally dressed woman working a phone bank for President Joe Biden who talks to a male voice whose owner we never see. Here is the script: WHITE WOMAN: Hello, I’m with the Biden campaign. MALE VOICE: Yeah, yeah, I voted for Biden last time. WHITE WOMAN: That’s fantastic. MALE VOICE: Is it? Everything costs more: food, gas, rent. WHITE WOMAN: OK, but Biden’s helping...

    Former President Donald Trump surged to a dead heat with President Joe Biden among suburban women, an ABC News/Ipsos poll found in May, reversing another key demographic that previously favored Biden. Trump and Biden are tied (45 percent – 45 percent) among suburban women, who are typically seen as not persuadable, the poll found. Among suburban men, Trump leads Biden by eight points (49 percent – 41 percent). The poll sampled 2,260 adults from April 25-30 with a 2-point margin of error.
  • Study identifies key factors boosting compersion in non-monogamous relationships

    In a world where romantic relationships traditionally adhere to monogamy, the reaction to a partner’s intimate connection with someone else is typically assumed to be jealousy. However, within the community that practices consensual non-monogamy, a different emotional response known as compersion — defined as feeling joy when a partner is romantically or sexually involved with another person — is increasingly recognized and valued. A recent study provides insight into the predictors of compersion, revealing that emotional closeness with a partner’s other intimate connections, clear communication about these relationships, and reduced feelings of jealousy are key facilitators. The findings have been...

Madison Bergmann and her betrothed, Sam Hickman, were due to tie the knot in July — but the revelation of her sick love affair with one of her 11-year-old students has halted any plans of a flowery ceremony.

    Suzanne Venker’s latest book, How to Build a Better Life, distills her countercultural, practical, and effective life advice for women.Everyone wants to talk about what’s wrong with men, whether it’s “toxic masculinity,” “men without work,” “the end of men,” the longhouse, or the need for men to “clean their rooms.” Not so many people, however, want to talk about what’s wrong with women. Even the longhouse complaint is that women are too successful:As of 2022, women held 52 percent of professional-managerial roles in the U.S. Women earn more than 57 percent of bachelor degrees, 61 percent of master’s degrees, and...

    There’s a viral trend on TikTok that got started with a seemingly simple question: Would women rather run into a bear or a man in the woods? Now people are discussing the fact that a lot of women have admitted to preferring the bear. USA Today reports how this debate — simply referred to as “Man vs. Bear” — is said to have been started by TikTok account, Screenshot HQ, who posted a video of women being asked this question seemingly around the United Kingdom about a week or so ago. By the end of the video, all the woman...

    Published in the Journal of Economic Behavior & Organization, the research aimed to reveal how a woman’s appearance impacts the moral behavior of others. Researchers in Tel Aviv gave men and women, 110 individuals each, a questionnaire with an image of a woman attached, and falsely told participants it was the face of the scientist leading the study. Half of the questionnaires featured the image of a typically attractive woman and the other half, a less attractive woman. The results showed that men were more likely to behave more honestly when they believed they were interacting with a beautiful woman...

    American women are giving birth at record-low rates. The total fertility rate fell to 1.62 births per woman in 2023, a 2% decline from a year earlier, federal data released Thursday showed. It is the lowest rate recorded since the government began tracking it in the 1930s. The decline reflects a continuing trend as American women navigate economic and social challenges that have prompted some to forgo or delay having children. A confluence of factors are at play. American women are having fewer children, later in life. Women are establishing fulfilling careers and have more access to contraception. At the...

    I increasingly feel that feminism has failed my generation. It is a peculiarity of the West that it is divided into sets which differ profoundly in their beliefs. This state of affairs began with the Reformation and has grown more pronounced ever since. There were Protestants and Catholics who differed fundamentally not only on faith but on practical matters. It was among Protestant communities that feminism first emerged, and it is in Protestant countries such as America and Britain in which feminist beliefs have been at their most vocal and strident in tone, like a religion with no dilution of...

    A new study looked at how long it took for TikTok and YouTube Shorts to recommend misogynistic content to the accounts of young men. It takes on average 23 to 26 minutes of video watching for TikTok and YouTube Shorts to recommend toxic or misogynistic content to the accounts of young men, according to a new study. The study from Dublin City University tracked the content recommended to 10 “sockpuppet” TikTok and YouTube Short accounts created by the researchers on new smartphones. The accounts were all directed to show the search interests of 16 and 18-year-old boys either with regular...

    Fifty women have been randomly attacked by strangers so far this year in the lower half of Manhattan, an NYPD official said. “The trend that I’m getting from the people that we’re arresting, the majority of them are homeless, the majority of them seem like they need some kind of help with mental illness,” Chief of Detectives Joseph Kenny said at One Police Plaza Tuesday. Most of the attacks don’t appear to be copycats and cops don’t consider them a trend, Kenny said.
