Feminism Is Good For Men, Too

Gender equality is good for men — and for everyone, says CUNY Professor, Michael Kimmel, expert on men and masculinity, and all-around good guy.

Check out his TED Talk. (I summarize his main points below — and add a few of my own.)


How is gender equality good for men? And for everyone? Read the rest of this entry

Planned Parenthood Saves Lives

I stand with Planned Parenthood.

I stand with Planned Parenthood.

Defund Planned Parenthood to save lives?

That’s what folks — perpetually  intent on promoting unplanned parenthood — claim. Because 3% of the services PP provided last year were abortion-related (but not government-funded). And some folks trust hoaxes staged to make PP look bad.

Yet the anti-PP folks don’t really care about saving lives.

Women Making Love to Themselves

Are you turned on?

Are you turned on?

Being desired is the orgasm.

That’s true for women, anyway. So says Marta Meana, who studies sexuality at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. Women are most turned on by feeling irresistible to their lovers, she adds. Read the rest of this entry

Back to School, I Mean Rape Culture

As college women returned to school this fall, some were welcomed back to rape culture.

A few college boys who haven’t yet grown into man-sized shoes unravelled banners shouting:

Hope your baby girl is ready for a good time

Go ahead and drop mom off too Read the rest of this entry

The Most Important Thing For a Woman: Be Hot

Las Vegas billboard

Many young women think that the most important thing is to be hot. And in a very narrow way.

It’s no wonder. They’re bombarded by narrowly sexy images.

Go to Google Images and type “sexy images” or “sexy fantasies.” About 99% of the pics will be of women.

What? Men aren’t sexy?

And why do they all look alike. Isn’t variety the spice of life?

Go to Las Vegas and take a look at the billboards. About 99% will be sexy ladies. Read the rest of this entry

Patriarchy Drains Our Confidence

A man is not a financial plan-2

A man is not a financial plan-2

By Kloranne Kambou

Like some Westerners, a woman in my country — the Republic of Congo — may see a man as a financial plan.

Maybe that’s not surprising since our culture lifts men above women and gives us fewer opportunities.

When a woman births a boy she gains respect. He will become head of his own family — which he will rule and provide for. Only boys can pass on the heritage of their fathers.

Growing up, I saw women arise early to do laundry, cook, clean and work in the fields. Men slept as long as they wanted. When the men finally did wake up and come for breakfast, they were served first. They were also served first for every other meal.

Objectification & Male Self-Esteem

man objectifying womanWhy do men objectify women?

Jason Gavis asked men that question on his Facebook page and wrote about their replies for The Good Men Project. Here’s one answer he got:

For me it’s about seeking approval… the most fun and exciting and ego gratifying times in my life have been when I have embraced it and danced with it.

This reminded me of a woman who said (more like complained) that her guy seemed to get an ego-boost whenever a woman he ogled noticed him.

So I’m wondering why this is.  Read the rest of this entry

High Minimum Wage Boosts Economy

As Labor Day approaches think about this:

Does raising the minimum wage kill jobs?

Doesn’t look like it. Read the rest of this entry

F- The Patriarchy. Literally?

Screw the patriarchy. Literally?

Screw the patriarchy. Literally?

A married, non-monogamous friend of mine says I should be non-monogamous, too.

Because exclusive relationships were instituted to dominate women’s sexuality.

I’ve heard this line before. But not from someone who could personally benefit from it. Read the rest of this entry

Why Women Stop Being Porn Stars

How to make love like a porn star

How to make love like a porn star

At the beginning of relationships even the prudest women act like porn stars. We get BJs in the car (and many other places). But after a few months or years we can’t even get a BJ in bed. Or only after much begging and maybe even manipulation, which leaves us feeling like undesirable, pathetic fools. That’s just one example… Every married man that I have spoken to says women become more prudish over the course of a relationship…

A woman who is willing to explore her sexual boundaries and become more sexually adventurous throughout the course of the relationship will never be abandoned or cheated on by a man. TRY IT! YOU WILL SEE.
