Equal Pay Day 2016

By MJ Dylan

Equal pay-day represents the day that women must work till in order to earn as much as men earn.

While the left promotes and supports equal results instead of equal rights, let’s expose a few gender myths. Women are no longer a minority group. Since the 1980s females make up a majority of voters. In 2012, 53% of the votes cast were from women – most of them voting for Barack Obama. In the 1980s the majority of college degrees in all categories went to women, and in 2009 women earned 57% of all bachelor’s degrees.

James Chung of Reach Advisers spent a year studying the data. According to an analysis of 2000 communities in 147 out of 150 of the biggest cities in the United States, the median full-time salaries of young women are 8% higher than those of the men in their perspective group. In Atlanta and Memphis, women are making 20% more than men. In New York, Los Angeles, and San Diego it’s between 15 and 17% more than their male peers. In places like Raleigh Durham North Carolina, women earn 14% more; Jacksonville Florida, women earn 6% more than men. Why do women want you to believe that there is a gender wage gap?  Because victim-hood equals virtue in today’s social justice culture.

Feminists often claim that women are not as good as men negotiating for wage increases and promotions, which is entirely false.  Claudia Goldin says that women have just as much bargaining power and can negotiate just as well as men. The difference in aggregate outcome can be attributed to the hours that men work and the decisions that women make concerning their work-life balance. Claudia opposes the notion of a gender wage gap.

Anthony Carnevale, a research professor and director of the Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce, says that women choose lower paying jobs, usually as a result of college degree decisions that will inevitably lead to lower wages in the aggregate. But once again, the left wants equal outcomes instead of equal opportunities. They believe that someone with a major in gender studies should be paid the same as someone with a degree in business, regardless of the economic contribution of their efforts.

At the end of the day, the numbers do not lie. The Bureau of Labor Statistics has already disproved the claim made by Hillary Clinton and other feminist leaders that women make $0.77 to a man’s dollar. The whole argument is baseless and promotes a generation of women who tout social justice pitchforks for no good reason at all, except to vilify all working men in the United States, a country that has laws to prosecute against the very inequality that feminists claim exists in the workforce today: Affirmative Action and the Equal Pay Act of 1963.  

The conclusion: all men are misogynists because of that thing between their legs.  

 

The Preamble…

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

Transgender Identity Disorder: A Mental Illness

The American College of Pediatricians just released a summary of larger report that will be published in the Summer of 2016 that discusses the harm that gender ideology has on children.

In short: A person’s belief that he or she is something they are not is, at best, a sign of confused thinking. When an otherwise healthy biological boy believes he is a girl, or an otherwise healthy biological girl believes she is a boy, an objective psychological problem exists that lies in the mind not the body, and it should be treated as such. These children suffer from gender dysphoria. Gender dysphoria (GD), formerly listed as Gender Identity Disorder (GID), is a recognized mental disorder in the most recent edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of the American Psychiatric Association (DSM-V). The psychodynamic and social learning theories of GD/GID have never been disproved.

This is the beginning of scientific clarity on this issue, especially in light of recent legislative battles and the upcoming summer Olympics, where transgender people will be allowed to compete for the first time.

Rape Culture on College Campus: The SlutWalk Movement

Part 3…“Waking up in Vegas”…as a SLUT…Slut-Walk for Freedom

“In my long-lost youth, finding yourself in that acutely embarrassing situation, you fumbled to find your bra down the dusty side of the bed, squiggle into your knickers, hastily threw a dress on inside out and did a walk of shame across the college lawn, hoping it was still early enough not to get spotted. (It wasn’t. Gossips never sleep.) Rape was something violent and never to be forgotten, not something you couldn’t remember…We diminish the pain of every woman who has been raped…the “ooh, i’ve got a terrible hangover, maybe I was raped last night.”” – Allison Pearson, Welsh author and Columnist.

Waking up in a stranger’s bed after a long night of drinking doesn’t always mean you were roofied and screwed by some sex crazed frat boy. Getting drunk, or otherwise removing rational thought, throws responsibility for self preservation upon other people. This burden on others challenges society’s natural proclivity towards competitive self interest.

However, feminists are currently engaged in a fight for the right to get blackout drunk, sleep with a random stranger, and then wake up with a hangover and decide whether or not it was consensual based on a criteria found in a gender studies curriculum.  Actions have consequences…the same could be true in any other real-life situation.  If you drink and drive, you are responsible for your actions. Thus, social encounters, especially those involving intoxicating substances, can and should bear the same gravity of consequence that comes with any real life situation like driving.

In order to bring awareness to campus “rape culture,” Heather Jarvis and other feminists have organized  SLUT WALKs to demonstrate female empowerment…“We want to take back the word slut,” the co-founder tells Steve Paikin in a panel discussion on The Agenda.  The Slut walkers want to show that consent can not be given under circumstances of intoxication and that just because a woman dresses in a promiscuous manner doesn’t mean she desires a sexual encounter. Gail Dines, the author of “Porn Land”  responded to Heather Jarvis – co founder of the slut walk movement. Dines asks, “where is our responsibility to these younger girls? You talk about owning the word slut…what do you think about the 14 and 15-year-old girl, how is she going to negotiate that?” She asks the Slut Walk leader, “If feminism is going to be worth its name, it has to not be about you…an upper-middle-class white woman who decides to have lots of sex and dress in whatever she likes. You are doing a terrible disservice to young girls.”  The correct advice would be to tell both men and women that they should stay sober enough so that at the very least memories can reasonably determine whether or not rape actually occurred.  

Susannah Breslin, a journalist for Salon.com, “I hear these words and I just hear gender studies majors with nothing to do…sexual assault should be taken seriously, and creating something called a slut walk is absurd and fails generate real change.”

There is a faction of new wave feminists through America’s higher education system that have filled their gender studies curriculum with venomous hatred towards men and a general fear of all things testosterone.  Anita Sarkeesian has petitioned for removing video games that she believes fuels society’s “hatred” of women and binary gender stereotypes.  She has called for separate train cars for women in order to feel safe from all the men who want to grope, gaze upon, or generally interact in any way with women in public. She calls for the same “separate but equal” reality that blacks faced under the thumb of Jim Crow…except now it’s self-segregation and not institutional.

In America, we have affirmative action…equal opportunities exist, but because those opportunities do not always produce equal outcomes, the victim-class harnesses a political voice that begins to shape the national conversation towards producing equal outcomes at the cost of real equality.

Women are asking men to mitigate risk.  As Marissa Semkiw, a journalist for Rebel Media, says “this brand of feminism turns to the patriarchy for protection, while claiming to be empowered. The new wave feminists want to do whatever they want, have sex with whoever they want, and it is all part of social and cultural empowerment that comes with being a victimized woman in 2016.”

 

Campus Rape Culture: The Media

Part 2…The Victims of Rape Culture…In a Nutshell…Ball-Busting Media Bias

By Jackie Kurtz

@Jackiekurtz3

Journalist Sabrina Rubin Erdely published an article in Rolling Stone that confirmed a general bias toward victim-feminism instead of fact.  Her mission: Give a voice to the invisible victims of campus “rape culture”…a threat as abstract as terrorism during the Bush administration and as insidious in its effect as radical Islam.  Sabrina’s effort brought a wave of feminist support from every leftist regressive.  Chloe Angyal, who thanked Sabrina on MSNBC for helping women and exposing the truth: “We live in a culture that hates women.”  All because of a fraudulent reporting by Sabrina, the real victims of rape culture began to slowly float to the surface, and while their voices aren’t as loud as the leftist-regressives that they oppose, the college rape delusion has spread across the western world.

 

RAPE CULTURE VICTIMS:

Jay Cheshire was a 17-year-old college freshmen was eventually cleared of rape after a four-week investigation.  As the investigation came to an end and all charges were dropped, he hung himself from a tree in the community park. His accuser withdrew her claim and has remained silent. Her identity is still a secret. Jay is dead.  He was a victim of rape culture…

Ben Sullivan, Oxford Union President: “Yes, I had sex with the girl who claimed I raped her. But it was consensual. That is the truth…Seeing my reputation trashed has been sobering and painful. My whole life has been rifled through and examined. It has been utterly draining.  These poisonous allegations have made me re-evaluate everything. It has been very testing. I wondered how anyone could believe something so vile. I wondered how I was going to withstand all the poison.”  Authorities cleared Sullivan of all charges and his accusers later conceded that the allegations were false.  He was a victim of rape culture…  

Duke University lacrosse players were accused of rape from what turned out to be a delusional woman who wanted to take advantage of the situation (and her lack of coherent memory). On the way to the case’s dismissal, 88 university faculty members joined protesters on campus and held up signs like “Castrate the lacrosse captains.” They were victims of rape culture…

Phi Kappa Psi Fraternity at the University of Virginia was accused of requiring new pledges to gang rape freshmen girls as part of their initiation. The story first appeared in Rolling Stone Magazine, and caused a firestorm of hatred towards the men, not only in this fraternity, but any testosterone-backed organization. By the time the Columbia School of Journalism debunked the article, the national press had already polarized the entire nation, which forced the fraternity members to book hotel rooms to avoid the protesters swarming their fraternity house.  

Phi Psi President Stephen Scipione opined, “Our society tends to rush to judge without the facts. They want to blame it on someone, and obviously we were the easiest targets for that.”  In addition to the article being a farce, any and all versions of the claims against the fraternity could not be substantiated according to authorities investigating the allegations made by journalist Sabrina Erdely. They were victims of rape culture…

*****************

Consent can be taken back in some cases.  If you regret having sex with a guy in the morning, you can then withdraw your consent and then suddenly, he is a rapist…Now rape is whenever a guy doesn’t tell you the full truth about his past. – Lauren Southern of Rebel Media and former Canadian Libertarian candidate

The “GUILTY UNTIL PROVEN INNOCENT” reality that men face on college campuses threaten the basic principles that make America a successful Democratic Republic. And the Media doesn’t help that injustice. They don’t even wait for a grand jury before they polarize an audience between the group who cries victim and the group that hires a slew of high priced attorneys to defend against baseless allegations.  The goal of the media: sensationalize a story and push the audience to a verdict before they have time to critically think.

That’s what the media did in 1964 when the Hell’s Angels were accused of raping in gang-bang fashion a young women who as it turns out consented to the whole thing as reported by Hunter S. Thompson: The Hell’s Angels would soon be known and feared throughout the land. Their blood, booze and semen-flecked image would be familiar to readers of the New York Times, Newsweek, the Nation…Within six months small towns from coast to coast would be arming themselves at the slightest rumor of a Hell’s Angels “invasion…” They would owe most of their success to a curious rape mania that rides on the shoulder of American Journalism like some jeering, masturbating raven.  Nothing grabs an editor’s eye like a good rape.  – HST, Hell’s Angels

Little has changed since then, except high definition TV and social media.  But rape will always stoke the fire of sensationalist journalism.  And from there, it’s doesn’t take long till crying victims end up before the United Nations or a congressional sub-committee, like feminist activist Zoe Quinn, who told the United Nations: “It shouldn’t be on people like me to have to prove this. We shouldn’t have to keep fighting, when anyone can just go look at my twitter page.” Only a select few media critics can accept the risks associated with challenging this type of emotionally charged journalism for fear of being fired, dis-invited to college campuses, and blackballed from future employment. Because of this fear, many keep these actual statistics under the rug.

There is an “R” word that we need to embrace: Reality…which clearly establishes that there is no evidence to support a “rape culture” in American educational institutions, unless you are talking about the culture of young men’s lives shattered by false rape allegations.  We do not live in a society that glorifies rape.  Our society prosecutes rapists and sends them to a place where rape is a daily activity between two non-consenting males. In between, there’s certainly a sensationalist effort, but in the end America is great because accusations alone, regardless of the media, should not produce a guilty verdict without it coming from a jury of their peers.

 

It’s 2016 – Rape Culture Still Exists on College Campuses

Trigger Warning: This article contains disturbing statistics about rape

By Jackie Kurtz

@Jackiekurtz3

Part 1…Horny Frat Boys…Touch the Monkey…Fear the Rape Culture

Horny American men are to blame for a very dark reality: 1 in 4 women will be raped on college campuses this year.

These statistics come from he Association of American Universities released in 2007 regarding sexual assault on campus.

The definition of sexual assault has expanded from unwanted penetration to a broad sweep of incidents:

Kissing…any and all physical contact, which can include touching through clothes…suggestive speech that encourages sex…intimidation or pressure to perform sexual acts…situations where consent has been given but under conditions of intoxication…making someone sexually vulnerable and otherwise uncomfortable.

The AAU’s broad definition of sexual assault, along with the victim mindset from campus gender studies departments has stimulated a biased statistic – 1 in 4 women will be sexually assaulted – but the real danger with the 1 in 4 statistic is that it breeds an environment of Guilty until proven innocent, which social justice warriors seem to have little regard for the dangers that false allegations have on the lives of the accused.  

In order to set the record straight about rape statistics on college campuses, I have included the unbiased numbers below compliments of the United States Department of Justice and the National Crime and Victimization Data (NCVD).  

Below is an excerpt from a report on the Justice Department findings by the American Enterprise Institute:

Justice department rape culture

Over the 1995-2013 period, the rate of rape and sexual assault victimization was almost 25% higher for non-students ages 18-24 (7.6 cases per 1,000 females) compared to students enrolled in a post-secondary institution in that age group (6.1 cases per 1,000 females), see chart above.

Despite all of the media attention on campus sexual assault, women enrolled in colleges and universities are actually much safer compared to women in that age group who are not attending a postsecondary institution.

Over the 1995-2013 period, the rate of rape and sexual assault victimization for both students and non-students has been falling (see chart).  For women attending college, the rate of rape/sexual assault has fallen by more than 50%, from 9.2 incidents per 1,000 women in 1997 to 4.4 cases per 1,000 in 2013. According to the media, politicians and gender activists, there is supposed to be a college “rape epidemic” when in fact, the rate of college female victimization has been trending downward for the last two decades.

National Crime and Victimization data shows that only about 1 in 41 women were victims of rape or sexual assault (threatened, completed and attempted; and reported and unreported) while in college for four years during the entire period investigated from 1995 to 2013:  
6.1 women per 1,000 = “1 in 163.9 women” per year, and over four years attending college would then be = “1 in 41 women” while in college.

18 to 24 year old women attending college are 25% less likely to get raped than their non-collegiate counterparts…Since 1997 sexual assault has declined by 50%…Over the past 4 years 1 in 52 college women were raped or sexually assaulted.  

While fanatical feminists conceal facts under the guise of victim-hood.  Men must now preemptively defend themselves against rape accusations.  To mitigate the threat that women pose, many college men have set up recording equipment to  capture proof of consent during sexual encounters in the event that a female cries rape in the early hours of a post blackout hangover.  

 

 

C.S. Lewis on “Tyranny”

In light of the victimized, politically correct culture spreading across America, we must always remember how close we can drift to the arms of tyranny.

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. They may be more likely to go to Heaven yet at the same time likelier to make a Hell of earth. This very kindness stings with intolerable insult. To be “cured” against one’s will and cured of states which we may not regard as disease is to be put on a level of those who have not yet reached the age of reason or those who never will; to be classed with infants, imbeciles, and domestic animals.” – CS LEWIS
