    Tucker Carlson ripped the National Hockey League for tweeting last week that “trans women are women” and connected the messaging to a broader scheme by the left to “brainwash” sports fans. Last week, the league’s official Twitter account angered many fans when it championed a “trans draft tournament” in Wisconsin. The NHL is proud to support this past weekends Team Trans Draft Tournament in Middleton, Wisconsin. This was the first tournament comprised entirely of transgender and nonbinary players, with around 80 folks participating! #HockeyIsForEveryone #NHLPride pic.twitter.com/OfEoAVXtH5 — NHL (@NHL) November 22, 2022 One person responded, “So, men playing on womans teams?” The league fired back, “Trans women are women. Trans men are men. Nonbinary identity is real.” Trans women are women. Trans men are men. Nonbinary identity is real. — NHL (@NHL) November 22, 2022 The tweet went viral and led many to point out that the NHL is the country’s most conservative sports league when gauged by the political views of its fans. The NHL has the whitest, most Republican-leaning US fan base of the...
    Incels are usually clingy wannabe momma's boys, according to one of the first studies into the hate group.  Involuntary celibates — who advocate violence and rape against women — have been responsible for a growing number of terror attacks in recent years. They make up a dark and depraved online community of young heterosexual men who blame society in women for their lack of romantic success.  Now researchers from the University of Rome have found similar personality traits that band members together.  Incels score highly for depression, anxiety and paranoia, as they are more likely to be distrustful of women and jealous of other men who are successful in romantic relationships. Depression may also lead to self-hatred, suicidal and violent tendencies. The researchers also found members had a 'fearful attachment style', which includes being clingy or emotionally absent. Their hatred of women and misogyny stems from a fear of trusting others and getting hurt, which may have arisen due to emotional neglect or abuse as a child, according to the researchers.  The researchers hope their findings and the scale can...
    Disturbed young men are resorting to hitting themselves in the face with hammers to try to look more attractive. They are ‘involuntary celibates’ or ‘incels’, part of a misogynistic subculture on shady online forums where users exchange fantasies about rape and mass murder. Members believe in a conspiracy theory called ‘black pill’, a nihilistic ideology which preaches that its followers are doomed to a life without sex or relationships due to their genetic appearance. Filmmaker Ben Zand, who investigated British incels for a new Channel 4 documentary, said: ‘The ideology tells you that if you are not attractive, you don’t have any hope. That leaves you with three possible outcomes – you can kill yourself, you can kill other people, or the one redemptive option is radically changing your appearance.’ Disturbed young men are resorting to hitting themselves in the face with hammers to try to look more attractive Many incels practise so-called ‘looksmaxxing’ – activities to boost their appearance, including extreme gym usage, testosterone-taking and reconstructive surgery. To achieve the facial shape idealised online – narrow eyes, prominent cheekbones and...
    During an appearance on FNC’s “Hannity,” Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO), fresh off of his dust-up with a University of California Berkely professor over the ability of men to get pregnant, discussed the exchange. He likened Democrats’ belief in blurred lines of gender to religion. “I think it’s a fact, Sean, and you know what, but for today’s Democrats elite and Democrat leaders, it’s not only not a fact, it is religion to them that you affirm that men can get pregnant and if you don’t say it, then you are responsible for violence,” he said. “I mean, this is their line.” “By the way, Sean, these are the same people, the same Democrat leaders who want to force young women to compete against biological men in girls’ sports,” Hawley explained. “I mean that now we know why. If for all the parents out there, like why in the world do all of these Democrats want to eliminate girls’ sports? Now, you know why. They don’t believe there is any such thing as a woman, not really, and they think that...
    IT'S been almost three decades since a needle containing a lethal cocktail was jabbed into the chubby arm of 'killer clown' John Wayne Gacy. But while the Chicago-born mass murderer - responsible for the sexual torture and murders of at least 33 young men and boys - is now dead, the investigation into his chilling crimes has no end in sight. 10John Wayne Gacy earned his chilling nickname because he worked as a clown before his murder spree 10Gacy, who was put to death in May 1994, revealed there could be at least a dozen more victimsCredit: Rex Features Gacy terrorised the Chicago area for six years until 1978, and earned his chilling nickname after it emerged that he worked as a clown prior to his crimes. Most of his victims were buried in a small crawl space underneath his house of horrors, while others were thrown into the Des Plaines River. Typically he lured victims to his home, duped them into wearing handcuffs as part of a 'magic trick', then raped, tortured and strangled them. He spent 14 years on...
    Chris Pincher was the man Boris Johnson put in charge of investigating sex allegations and keeping discipline in his ruling Conservative party. Now Pincher has reportedly been accused in more than a dozen new reports of alleged groping, touching, and inappropriate advances. The hideous cavalcade of allegations against Pincher has piled pressure on Johnson’s administration, which already had something of an accountability issue. The latest rounds of revelations about Pincher, which he denies, began last week. A report in The Sun said Pincher had gotten drunk at a private members club in London and groped two men. This would be inexcusable for a lawmaker at any juncture of their career, but—if proven—it would be made even more shocking by Pincher’s role within the government; he was deputy chief whip, a job which, among other things, involves maintaining discipline within his party and looking into allegations of sexual misconduct against its politicians. “Last night I drank far too much,” Pincher wrote in a letter to Boris Johnson resigning from the role. “I’ve embarrassed myself and other people which is the last...
    A bizarre new TikTok trend is sweeping the internet - and it might be the strangest one yet.  What has been dubbed the 'Gentleminions' trend sees large groups of young men don formalwear, usually dark suits and ties, to attend screenings of the new animated film, Minions: The Rise of Gru.  In several viral videos shared on the social media app, the men, usually teenagers, join their friends to descend upon their local cinemas in their finest clothes.  @bill.hirst ????#fyp #minions #banana ♬ original sound - billh The 'Gentleminions' trend sees large groups of young men don formalwear, usually dark suits and ties, to attend screenings of the new animated film, Minions: The Rise of Gru.

    The sexual revolution has been a disaster for women – that was the provocative case set out by Louise Perry in yesterday’s Daily Mail.  Here, in a second extract from her powerful new book, she takes on feminists who deride marriage. Yes, it’s hard work, she says, and most don’t live up to a romantic ideal, but it still offers the best protection possible for a woman and her children. The institution of marriage is now more or less dead. In 1968, eight per cent of children were born to parents who were not married; in 2019, it was almost half. And now in this country there is a divorce for every two marriages. It was not meant to be like this. Proponents of the 1969 Divorce Reform Act – the key piece of liberalising legislation – believed the changes they argued for would be an act of kindness towards a smallish number of unhappy people stuck in wretched marriages, and lift the stigma from the then tiny minority unfortunate enough to have been through divorce. ‘This Bill does not...
    A woman who sexually abused a young child alongside two men has been disowned by her family because of her 'depraved' conduct.  Vicki Bevan, 37, was jailed for life after admitting 34 sex offences including one joint charge of rape.  Bevan's mother Shirley has spoken out after her paedophile daughter was ordered to serve a minimum of ten years following her trial at Liverpool Crown Court.  Vicki Bevan had discussed with another man their desire to 'kidnap, rape, torture, kill and then eat children' after sexually abusing them Bevan, 37, filmed and photographed the girl being abused and the images were shared online - which led to their downfall when they were found on a mobile phone Mrs Bevan told Sun Online: 'We've all disowned her. We don't want anything to do with her anymore. 'The whole thing is just too upsetting.' Another family member said: 'Everyone is disgusted by what she has done. We hate her for these vile crimes. They should throw the book at her. We're all scared we'll be tainted by this and people think we...
    That's one way to nail your financial goals.  OnlyFans performer Cheri DeVille has plenty of money to spend these days - but tells DailyMail.com that she is astounded at the ways her male peers talk about investing. So the 43-year-old set out to use her platform the only way she knew how: With a responsible finance-themed porno that she hopes can seduce her viewers out of cyclical crypto-babble and 'virtual Ponzi schemes.' All in time for Tax Day. When the 30-minute erotic film dropped on April 18, DeVille told her Twitter followers, 'Maybe if your man doesn't listen to actual financial experts he might listen to p****!'    DeVille, a former physical therapist with no formal financial training, said that she first became alarmed when she began hearing her male friends - predominantly younger men - using the word 'investment' in conjunction with NFTs and cryptocurrencies.  'I became concerned. I'm older and I'm old fashioned, but seeing my friends gamble their hard-earned money away p***ed me off.'

    Women now earn as much or even more than men in 22 US cities and metro areas, new research on the gender pay gap has discovered.    According to a Pew Research Center study published Monday, women under 30 who work full-time in the New York City and Washington DC metro areas are earning 102 percent of what their male colleagues are making. And in the Los Angeles metro area, women are earning the same as men. In total, the study found, 16 percent of all young women who are working full time are living in one of 22 cities where they make the same - or even more - than their male counterparts. The reverse-gender pay-gap is highest in Wenatchee, Washington, a city of just 32,000 where women earn 20 percent more than men. Wenatchee is famed for its apple orchards and wineries, and also has a large tourism economy.  Morgantown in West Virginia comes second, with women there earning an average of 14 percent more than men. The city is home to a respected university, which has helped drive-up...
    For an ‘empowered, super-successful woman’ (her words), 2020 Ms Great Britain April Banbury can be rather daft when it comes to men. She’s met goodness knows how many online in the past few years, dated ‘more than 100’ of them and slept with ‘the ones I felt I might have a connection with potentially’. Then . . . ‘They just ghost me,’ she says with a look that’s part fury, part hurt on her very pretty face. ‘They’ll feed you all this information — “I’m looking for a serious committed relationship” and “I do want to settle down now” or “you’re everything I want in a partner” — all this and then, before you know it, you’re texting, “Did you forget to pay your phone bill? Because I haven’t heard from you.” April — height: 5 ft 5 in, bust size: 32E (‘my boobs are real. I developed really quickly.

    A new doc streaming on ALLBLK titled 'Beyond Ed Buck' takes a deep dive into the murders of Gemmel Moore and Timothy Dean at the hands of Ed Buck, a wealthy Democratic donor who preyed on vulnerable, gay, black men In the early evening on July 27, 2017, Los Angeles County sheriff responded to a 911 call from a West Hollywood apartment where a 26-year-old black Gemmel Moore laid unresponsive on a mattress on the floor.  He was naked, wearing only white socks. Porn was playing on the TV and nearby was a red Craftsman tool box that stored drugs and paraphernalia including 24 syringes with brown residue, five glass pipes, lighters, a scale, straw, and Ziploc bag of 'crystal-like substance.' By the time paramedics arrived, the young black man was already dead. The medical examiner ruled it an accidental methamphetamine overdose.  But then, 18-months later, a second man died in the same apartment.  Paramedics again found themselves responding to a 911 call from the residence of wealthy Democrat donor Ed Buck.  55-year-old Timothy Dean laid unresponsive and naked on a mattress,...
    Fox & Friends on Monday mocked what, as a chyron showed, is a “growing trend of men living with parents.” The segment neglected to note that for some young people there are times when they have no other choice but to move back in with their parents. “A shocking new study shows that young men are more likely than ever to be jobless and live with their parents,” said co-host Lawrence Jones. “That’s according to data from The Conference Board, which says the number of men between 25 and 34 without a bachelor’s degree living at home had jumped from 15 percent in the 90s to 25 percent.” “That’s crazy,” said Jones. Jones then brought in Fox News contributor and Marine veteran Joey Jones (no relationship). “I don’t know if it’s just because I’m from the South, but my dad would never allow that to happen,” said Lawrence Jones. Joey Jones said: There’s no such thing as a 21- year-old kid. They’re 21-year-old young men who are raised to be kids at 21, and every time I hear a news report where someone calls a young man a child or kid it really just crawls up my spine....
    Emily Ratajkowski, 30, has admitted to 'exploiting herself' and 'using her body' to get 'fame and success' in a sensational new interview - just one day after she slammed the industry and revealed she was paid $25,000 to attend the Super Bowl with disgraced Malaysian financier Low Taek Jho aka Jho Low. The New York-based actress and model confessed to 'capitalizing on her sexuality' when she was younger in attempt to gain control during an interview with CBS Mornings on Monday - recalling how she saw her self-exploitation as a form of 'empowerment', a view that has changed as she's grown older.   '[In] my early 20s, I really thought of myself as hustling and working the system and saying, "Okay, I know what I can get from becoming a model and from using my body to have fame and success." And, I even called it empowerment,' she explained.

    Young men who receive the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine are at higher risk of developing a rare case of heart inflammation than those who received the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, researchers revealed on Thursday.   Researchers revealed the data at a meeting of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) advisory committee to discuss approval of booster doses for the Moderna and Johnson & Johnson shot. A CDC official presented data that showed young men under the age of 30 who receive the Moderna vaccine have experienced a slight uptick in myocarditis and pericarditis cases. This is the first data that show an increased risk in one of the vaccines when compared to the other.  However, officials stand by the safety of the vaccine, and still recommend it for use as the benefits heavily outweigh the potential risks.  Health officials in Nordic countries have made a different choice, though, with Denmark, Finland, Iceland and Sweden all restricting use of the Moderna jab among young people. People aged 18 to 29 who received the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine (left) were less likely to develop myocarditis than...
    Four young men were captured pushing an elderly woman in her scooter through a Florida neighborhood on Sunday night after it broke down in the pouring rain. The photos of the generous young men were taken by Katty Castro, a public relations representative for the Florida Living Independent Community in Seminole County. The elderly woman was on her way back to her home at the retirement residence when her scooter malfunctioned. The four were on their way home from work when they noticed her stuck in the rain. So they volunteered to push the woman back to her residence which was about three-quarters-of-a-mile away.

    Unvaccinated NBA players won’t take the shot, but they’re taking their lumps this week, with the masses teaming up to poke holes in their anti-vax logic. Thursday night, Daily Show contributor Roy Wood Jr. reminded NBA players that the league forces them to do things much more challenging than taking a needle to the arm. “I think the NBA should mandate that players get vaccinated,” the comedian claimed. “I mean, they already make a bunch of Black men live in Utah! We’re pretending a vaccine is worse than that?” Utah is one of the United States lesser progressive areas, so much so that its biggest city, Salt Lake City, declared “racism a public health crisis” earlier this year. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, as of 2019 only 1.5% of the state’s population is Black. Salt Lake City is similarly uniform, with 2.6% of its population being Black while 72.8% is White. After roasting Utah, Wood went on to rip Washington Wizards star Bradley Beal for his stance against taking the vaccine. Beal made headlines earlier this week after attempting...
    US Customs and Border Protection officials are looking into reports of alleged forced marriages between much older men and young girls whose families were desperate to have them escape the Taliban, according to a new report revealed Thursday. Those young girls told officials at a transit site in Abu Dhabi that they 'have been raped by older men they were forced to marry in order to escape Afghanistan,' the damning report obtained by Yahoo News and dated September 5 states.  'US officials are looking into reports that in the frantic evacuation of desperate Afghans from Kabul, older men were admitted together with young girls they claimed as "brides" or otherwise sexually abused,' the leaked paper states. It also notes reports of 'purported child brides' being brought to Fort McCoy in Wisconsin, where Afghan refugees are meant to end up after a thorough vetting process overseas. 'The reality is, overseas the vetting process sucks,' an official familiar with the troubling reports told Yahoo News. 'There's minimal vetting.' 'So now we have a 60-year-old guy with a 12-year-old girl saying, "That’s my...
    A Christian pastor has apologized for banning girls at his youth summer camps from wearing bikinis, admitting that it was wrong to lay 'the weight of purity' on the girls but not hold boys responsibly for being 'gross.'  Bryce Brewer, 42, from Spokane Valley, Washington issued an apology on Facebook on July 11, explaining how he came to realize how unfair it was to teach girls that their bodies are things that 'need to be covered' while boys' bodies are OK to be seen.  Father-of-two Bryce's post — and his plea for other youth pastors to 'stop being chauvinist' — has gone viral, earning over 40,000 shares and thousands of comments. Sorry! Bryce Brewer from Spokane Valley, Washington has been a leader at Christian youth camps for 20 years and promoted a 'one-piece swimsuit only' rule for girls (stock image) New outlook: He recently realized the rule was unfair.

    Oscar Wong | Moment | Getty Images Women have a money problem. They earn less than men and invest less, as well. The gender investment gap can be chalked up, in part, to insecurity, experts say. "The way that people can become confident is through knowledge," said Betsy Kelder, executive director of Invest in Girls, a program with the Council for Economic Education. The numbers tell the tale. Only 26% of American women invest in the stock market, a 2018 report from S&P Global found, and they invest less aggressively than men. Yet a 2017 Fidelity study found that women who did invest outperformed men by 40 basis points. More from Invest in You:Young investors are betting on stocks.

    WOMEN who wake up in the night are up to twice as likely to die young, a study has revealed. But they could reduce their risk by blocking sounds out with ear plugs, treating snoring or losing weight, doctors say. 1Women who wake up in the night are up to twice as likely to die young, a study claimsCredit: Getty - Contributor The research of 8,000 men and women looked at “unconscious wakefulness” during the night, which everyone experiences. The rouse from sleep happens as part of the body's ability to respond to potentially dangerous situations, such as noise, pain, temperature and lights. Obstruction to breathing - a symptom of sleep apnoea, which causes snoring - can also push someone into unconscious wakefulness. These tiny moments of being awake won’t necessarily be remembered the next morning, but make someone feel sleepy. Researchers led by University of Adelaide, Australia, say if frequent, these disruptions are linked with higher blood pressure among other health problems. They used data from three separate studies in which participants wore a sleep monitor during one night’s...

    The Lincoln Project is a 'toxic' workplace with a culture of infighting where women are sidelined, young men are referred to as 'wizards' and political rivals are disparaged, current and former staffers have claimed. The anti-Trump PAC has had a tumultuous week after being rocked by sexual harassment allegations involving co-founder John Weaver and subsequent claims the group knew about it months before acknowledging it publicly.  Now, nearly two dozen current and former staffers - or people associated with the group - have detailed in interviews with the 19th the 'toxic' inner workings of the Lincoln Project.  Those who were interviewed have claimed that dissatisfaction has long been growing among more junior staff due, in part, to sexist and derogatory language used among those within the organization.   Some said that young male staffers were referred to as 'wizards', while female staffers were called 'girls'.  They also allege that political rivals were commonly called 'p****es', 'c***suckers' or 'f****ts'.    The Lincoln Project has had a tumultuous week after being rocked by sexual harassment allegations involving co-founder John Weaver and subsequent claims the...
    The FBI is reportedly investigating allegations Lincoln Project co-founder John Weaver sexually harassed young men and interns - as six former staffers are demanding to be released from non-disclosure agreements they signed so they can publicly talk about the claims.  The Lincoln Project announced plans late on Thursday to launch an external investigation to probe claims they knew about sexual misconduct allegations against Weaver before he left the anti-Trump organization.  The 61-year-old co-founder left last month after it was publicly alleged he offered young men professional support in exchange for sex.   Federal agents have now reached out to at least two people to ask if Weaver sexually harassed them when they were underage, reporter Yashar Ali revealed on Friday.   Those two people said the FBI asked them if Weaver had ever touched them when they were minors, or if he had asked or sent them sexually explicit content.  It is not yet clear if Weaver is the target of a federal investigation or how wide the scope of the probe is.  The FBI is reportedly investigating allegations Lincoln Project co-founder John Weaver, 61,...
    MEMOIR ALL THE YOUNG MEN      by Ruth Coker Burks and Kevin Carr O’Leary (Trapeze £16.99, 355 pp) A memoir about the early days of the Aids epidemic in America may not sound like a rattling good read, but then Ruth Coker Burks isn’t your average writer. A churchgoing Southern belle, Ruth was a single mother selling houses in Arkansas. She had heard talk of a ‘gay cancer’, but had only the haziest idea of what it was. In 1986, while visiting a friend in hospital, Ruth walked past a room with a red ‘biohazard’ tarpaulin taped over the entrance. Out of sheer nosiness, she stopped outside the door and heard a faint voice calling for help. The nurses refused to go inside, so Ruth pushed past the tarpaulin and found a young man called Jimmy, so emaciated that ‘you couldn’t tell him from the sheets’, calling out for his mother. Ruth Coker Burks has penned a memoir about the early days of the Aids epidemic in America. Pictured: Ruth at a U.S. Pride concert When Ruth managed to contact Jimmy’s...
    It’s a film so dark and provocative that its star, Carey Mulligan, was fearful of taking the lead role.  When it was premiered at the prestigious Sundance Film Festival last year, members of the audience erupted in anger. And perhaps that’s no wonder, because Promising Young Woman, released in the UK shortly, dares to suggest a very uncomfortable truth – that women are just as violent, ruthless and full of rage as men. Already hotly tipped for an Oscar, the film has been described as ‘Thelma & Louise for the #MeToo generation’, after the 1991 road movie which showed two women taking the law into their own hands following a sex attack.

    The Lincoln Project appeared to have scrubbed association with its co-founder John Weaver on its site after allegations that Weaver sent unwanted, uncomfortable and sexually suggestive messages to nearly a dozen young men. A search of The Lincoln Project’s “Our Team” page, where Weaver was listed, leads to a page that doesn’t exist. An archive of the page shows that it existed as of January 11, and listed Weaver. Two days prior, journalist Ryan Girdusky said in a tweet that young men had sent him screenshots of predatory messages allegedly from Weaver, a political consultant who formerly worked for the John McCain presidential campaigns and then on former Ohio Gov. John Kasich’s presidential campaign.

    By Monicah Mwangi NAIROBI (Reuters) - When lawyer Shadrack Wambui was growing up in one of Nairobi's slums, he vented his frustration at abusive police through boxing, cultivating discipline that helped him avoid confrontations that could have derailed his studies. Now the 29-year-old is turning to the sport again to help young people in poor Nairobi neighbourhoods, combining his passion for the sport with informal lessons on the law and legal clinics to resolve marital disputes. Wambui says he hopes his boxing sessions will help young people believe in themselves despite the challenges they face. "We want to use boxing to advance other causes in our society, to help these young men channel their energies somewhere else so as to avoid criminal temptations," he said at a training session in the Kayole slum. After he was admitted to the Kenyan bar in 2018, Wambui convinced 50 young lawyers to join him in devoting part of their time to pro bono work in the slums and has now registered "Sheria Mtaani", which means "Law in the Streets" in KiSwahili. In a community...
    The Obamas had a guest during the early days of the pandemic: daughter Malia's boyfriend, Rory Farquharson. Like most families across the United States, the Obamas quarantined as the coronavirus pandemic began to rage in mid-March. In comments made on The Bill Simmons Podcast on Thursday, Barack Obama noted that Farquharson was part of the family's early quarantining. 'There was this whole visa thing, he had a job set up, and so we took him in,' Obama said on the podcast. 'And I didn’t want to like him, but he’s a good kid.' Rory Farquharson and Malia Obama spent the early days of the pandemic with the Obamas It's not clear when they began dating, but they've been spotted together as early as 2017 Rory Farquharson (left) attended Harvard, where Malia Obama also attended for a few years The former president had some nice anecdotes about quarantining together, including teaching card games to Farquharson and his daughters, Malia and Sasha. 'Maybe teaching Malia and Sasha, and Malia’s boyfriend who was with us for a while, spades and then...
    Donald Trump defended his previous claims that Joe Biden has referred to black American men as 'super predators' by insisting Sunday morning that his 'sources' told him the Democratic nominee has used the phrase. 'Joe Biden called Black Youth SUPER PREDATORS. They will NEVER like him, or vote for him. They are voting for 'TRUMP,'' the president tweeted Sunday morning. Just a few hours later he added in a second tweet on the subject: 'Joe Biden constantly used the term 'Super Predator' when referring to young Black Men, according to my sources.' Trump's tweets Sunday morning are a repeat, and further defense of claims he made at both debate face-offs with Biden earlier this fall. President Donald Trump defended his attack line that Joe Biden has called black men 'super predators', as he claimed his 'sources' told him it was true Trump said black Americans 'never' liked Biden – despite the former vice president holding a solid lead over Trump when it comes to the black vote It appears the president was mistakenly conflating...
    President Trump has made his outreach to black voters a core campaign feature this year, competing directly with Democratic nominee Joe Biden for a share of the electorate that could prove decisive in must-win battleground states. The urgency with which the Trump campaign views the matter was evident during Thursday night's presidential debate, when the president repeatedly outlined steps he had taken toward prison reform. He even launched his brief final statement with an appeal to black voters. "Before the plague came in, just before, I was getting calls from people that were not normally people that would call me. They wanted to get together," he said. "We had the best black unemployment numbers in the history of our country." The effort could pay strong dividends in states such as Georgia, where nearly a third of voters are black, North Carolina, where just over a fifth are black, as well as Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Florida, where 10-15% of the voting population is black. Calling the Trump campaign's outreach "far more successful than anyone would have imagined," Khari Enaharo of...
    It is the clarion cry of many politically active young women: ‘Down with the patriarchy!’ But for Pauline Harmange, a 25-year-old, bisexual French blogger, the call to arms has had more far-reaching consequences. Her decision to wade into the gender wars by writing a book entitled I Hate Men has sparked a fierce debate not only about the differences between the sexes but also about freedom of speech. The book is actually more a tub-thumping pamphlet, in the tradition of Paris’s bohemian and outspoken Left Bank, the haunt of great feminist philosophers such as Simone de Beauvoir, Colette and many others.  It is a passionate denunciation of men, of their violence and oppression and entitlement. Pauline Harmange, a 25-year-old, bisexual French blogger, has waded into the gender wars by writing a book entitled I Hate Men which has sparked a fierce debate not only about the differences between the sexes but also about freedom of speech  It opens with a quote from poet Sylvia Plath: ‘The trouble was, I hated the idea of serving men in any way.’ Harmange...
    Less than three percent of young adults hospitalized with coronavirus die, a new study suggests.  But the research from Brigham and Women's Hospital found that black patients in the former pandemic epicenter are three-times more likely to need life support or die, compared to their white peers.  And regardless of age, people who are diabetic, obese, have high blood pressure or a combination of two or three of those conditions have far poorer chances of survival, the new study found.  Although death rates among 18- to 34-year-olds remain low, the study found that 21 percent need to be treated in intensive care units (ICU).  Findings from the research, published Wednesday in JAMA Internal Medicine, underscore that while COVID-19 may not be as lethal to them, young adults, including college students, thousands of whom have recently been sent home from school with the virus, could still face very serious illness.  Young adults who are obese, diabetic or have high blood pressure are far more likely to need life support or die of coronavirus, a new study finds  Of the nearly...

Those affected make gambling a top priority. So is lose track of screen time; in many cases, they even sacrifice hours of sleep, which affects the mental and physical health of the gamer. Even if good use of digital entertainment has a multitude of beneficial effects on healthSome titles hide mechanisms that border on the mere game and encourage gambling and addiction, such as loot boxes or loot boxes. Its operation is apparently simple: by paying with real money, the user gets content – weapons, armor or a new outfit or appearance for the character, for example – within the video game. The key to everything is that you never choose what you receive: rewards are only distinguished by their degree of quality. The result is that, due to the randomness of the system, it ends up becoming a kind of camouflaged slot machine. Its consequences for children and...
    Amanda Marcotte July 21, 2020 8:17PM (UTC) The past few years have largely felt like a setback for the cause of feminism, starting with the fact that Donald Trump, who is as unfit for the presidency as humanly possible, managed to beat the eminently qualified Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election. But young author Kylie Cheung wants to help pave a path forward. In her new book, "A Woman's Place: Inside the Fight for a Feminist Future,"  Cheung lays out a vision for a feminism that can learn from those setbacks and use that experience to push for a better future. Salon spoke with Cheung about being a young feminist in such perilous times and what it means to have a feminism that keeps going in the face of even some of the ugliest defeats. This interview has been edited for length and clarity.  : You're a young author trying to get publicity for your book during a once in a lifetime economic and social crisis, or at least I hope it's just once in our lifetime. How are things...
