Weekly Mashup Stage 95

Come shout a holler at us at the new Ethecofem Forums!!!

Also feel free to treat this as an Open Thread.

Chivalry—Whether or not it’s dead, it’s not for us regular men.: I make it no secret I'm no fan of chivalry. And I especially don't like how most talks of it only talk about how it harms women and benefits men as if that's the only thing wrong with it.

Kony Is Not the Problem: A reminder that letting one person become the face of the enemy when there are more sinister forces at work is a bad idea.

Woman killed workmate then used semen from brothel to make it look as though she'd been raped and murdered: Yes you read that right. There are some really jacked up people out there.

Make More Time by Scheduling Your Media: Are we at the point where our consumption of media needs to be more carefully monitored like our food intake?

Mets pitcher R.A. Dickey talks about his childhood sexual abuse: Toy Soldier with a reminder that expecting a sex abuse victim to "get over it" is not only dismissive and wrong, but very difficult to do.

Judicial activists in the Supreme Court

Personally I think while Barkley and WW had their hearts in the right place I don't having him copy the Jennifer Hudson ad is the best way to inspire guys to try WW.

What You Say to Your Kids Isn't Always What They Hear: Be mindful what you say to your kids.

Female columnists criticizing the violence against woman act: For the people that still have a hard time with the fact that wives do abuse husbands.

Pornography Can Ruin Your Sex Life: A good point but I wonder (and may look into it one day) how this applies to people who have no sex life...

How Modesty Hurts Men, Too: I'd rather that the "too" not be there but in my efforts to try to find common ground I'll try to let it go.

Sex Sells: How Cosplay Could Die: Has the art of cosplay been damaged beyond repair by the desire to see boobs?

U.S. Court Refuses to Enforce Hague Convention: What's the point of the Hague Convention if the countries that sign it can just blatantly refuse to enforce it? (And I also find it messed up that an accusation, not arrest/charge/conviction, of abuse is all it takes to remove one parent from the home.)
