> The U.N. defines violence against women as “any act of gender-based violence that results in, or is likely to result in, physical, sexual or psychological harm or suffering to women, including threats of such acts.” - http://time.com/4049106/un-cyber-violence-physical-violence/

> Of course, it was a Christian — Newton — who discovered Newtonian physics, and a Jew — Einstein — who discovered relativistic physics. Jews and Christians invented the majority of modern medicine — antibiotics and vaccines — and the majority of advanced mathematics. The automobile was invented by the Jew Siegfried Marcus, and the airplane by the Christian Wright brothers — who were the sons of an Evangelical bishop.

Some academic leftists believe every culture has the exclusive right to its products.

Apparently the sentence "While we once allowed people to criticize our Diversity Policy we have now lowered the bar and will no longer allow it" is Racist.

Apparently I am now leading a Fashion Trend.
 
Young men are dyeing their hair gray and silver.
 
In other news, I saw my first man bun while walking Minnie in the park recently. I thought it looked ridiculous. Then again I wear a fanny pack while walking Minnie so pot kettle.
For a new generation of stylish men, the journey toward silver locks is something they have chosen to accelerate.

I still can't figure out what is so terrifying for a comedian to be told a joke they made isn't the least bit funny.

"What's been happening there the last few weeks is deeply concerning, but there's a difference between calling out aircraft and indiscriminately strafing and bombing your own cities than police actions which, frankly, have exceeded the use of force that any of us would want to see." - Hillary Clinton, March 11, 2011

> Barely coherent, Gill explains that he initially imposed a form of Nazism/Fascism upon the lawless Ekosians because he believed it to be the most efficient system of government ever devised. Spock concurs, stating National Socialism enabled a defeated and bankrupt Germany almost immediate governmental recovery to the level of near global domination.

> After returning to the Enterprise, Spock expresses confusion as to how Gill could make such a mistake emulating the Nazis. Kirk explains that the problem was not the Nazis themselves but giving any one individual so much power.

This isn't White Feminism. This is just one of the many times since Buck v. Bell (although it didn't start there) that the Eugenics Wing of the Progressive Movement furthered their goals.

In the early 1970s, as feminists advocated for abortion rights in the lead-up to Roe v. Wade, an L.A. county hospital was years into a federally funded ...

Apparently NBC News sees no distinction between a Government Employee using their official Government-maintained e-mail account to send information to another Government Employee using their official Government-maintained e-mail account and a Government Employee using their official Government-maintained e-mail account to send information to a private e-mail address.

I am pretty sure based on what I have read there is a difference. And if there isn't, the law needs to be changed.
But three officials say no emails directly revealed the identity of an undercover operative.

All of that talk about characterizing what is in the emails is irrelevant for legal purposes.  If it was classified, she had a duty to handle the material appropriately.  Period.

You will never convince me that seeing a photo of a scantily clad woman gives any man the idea that he can rape the next woman he meets. The level of stupidity required to make it downright scares me.

> But Europe’s ongoing migration crisis may finally convince Germans to do some soul-searching. With hundreds of thousands of refugees now trying to integrate, and more arriving every day, German society is responsible for setting the standards it expects the new arrivals to meet. Khola Maryam Hübsch, a journalist and author who has written extensively on Islam, sexism, and gender, points to the many images of scantily clad women in German media and popular culture as discrediting to the message Germans say they’re trying to send to the new arrivals. “How do we want to convince them that we have a different perception of women, when our daily culture is so influenced by sexism?” she asked. “How can we be credible?”

Think about this for a moment: What would the world be like if no one ever told someone else they had a bad idea?

> I’ve never understood the inclination to engage with something I don’t like — on social media or otherwise. That’s the beauty of Twitter. If you don’t agree with someone, you can unfollow them. If something upsets you, you can block it. We all have that luxury.

Moving the web forward

I spent 4 nights there during DragonCon. Outside of a refrigerator, there are no frills. The rooms are small and have minimal furniture. There seemed to be no snack machines on the site so bring your own. There was also (as stated) no Internet access offered. On the plus side, the room rate was extremely reasonable compared to other hotels in the area. A Pizza Hut that makes deliveries is very close by. Driving distance to downtown is 5 minutes. It isn't the kind of place I would want to vacation in, but as a place to go back to at the end of the night and leave early the next morning, it suited my purposes extremely well.
