Weekly Mashup - January 29, 2017

You may have noticed that I did not get to do a Weekly Mashup post last week. Unfortunately i was out of town on business and was not able to make one so you may notice that things I link here may be more than a week old. 

How author Timothy Tyson found the woman at the center of the Emmett Till case - Im gonna be frank. This one pisses me off big time. That woman's lies played vital role in the murder of an innocent black boy. What pisses me off even more is that everyone seems to want to make this white v black as if gender didn't play a role. 

Harvard dean chickens out of blacklisting male-only club members on eve of risky faculty vote - So maybe, just maybe, cooler heads will prevail and it will be realized that targeting male only organizations isn't such a great idea? I remember reading about this a while back where female students were on board with it....until they found out that female only organizations would also get caught up in this. Apparently punishing members of male only groups is progress but punishing members of female only groups is taking it too far.

How to Talk About Sexism in the Classroom - Its going to be hard to combat sexism in the classroom when you define sexism as only being able to happen to girls/women.

'Possessive' girl cuts off boyfriend's privates in Madhya Pradesh - What bothers me almost as much as the act of violence itself is the fact that because this was an act of female against male violence it won't get much notice or traction. And even pointing that fact out is often taken as somehow harming female victims.

How Vital Are Women? This Town Found Out as They Left to March - Nothing says progress towards gender equality like portraying men as incompetent oafs that can't survive without the women in their lives who are so burdened by having to do everything at home AND having to go out and fight for their rights. But articles like this get written when gender equality is pretty much defined as making sure women don't get the short end of the stick.

A Young Feminist’s Compassionate View of Men - Could it be that we are seeing a dawn of a new feminism where it becomes possible to acknowledge the plights of males without constantly drowning it out when pleas that women have it worse or reframing said plights as being really being something that harms women and men are just suffering some side effects or collateral damage. I really hope so but considering how other feminists have treated Cassie Jaye and her movie I'm not sure. Here is another link about Jaye's film "The Red Pill". Oh and just to be clear no this movie has nothing to do with the so called Red Pill movement.

Female, 17, charged with knife-point rape of 19-year-old man - 1) I hope that guy is doing okay and gets the help and support he needs. 2) I hope this rapist is held responsible for her actions and goes away for her crime. 3) I hope that we start seeing more coverage of crimes like this. Did you notice that it was actually called rape and not "sexual affair" or some other bullshit to avoid calling a female a rapist?

Rich of ReviewTechUSA responds to and questions Ashely Judd's recent remarks about attacking women for sport in video games.
