Whether paying for commercials on television, placing stories on the news or putting up posters around towns, they bombard us with plaintive pleas for donations. Even amid the economic downturn, this country remains one of the most generous nations in the world for charitable donations. For the chiefs of some of the best-known charities, who insist they must take your money to tackle global poverty, stand accused of hideous hypocrisy. It has emerged that for all their noble talk of helping the needy and emotive campaigns against inequality, senior figures in the poverty industry have been quietly pocketing hefty six-figure salaries — sometimes as they presided over falling donations to their organisations. These disturbing revelations will be a rude shock to all those big-hearted people who are keeping up donations as their own incomes are squeezed. Yesterday, as the sector was condemned by the Charity Commission, the accused aid groups resorted to the jaded defence of over-paid corporate plutocrats by saying big salaries were needed to attract talent. William Shawcross, chairman of the Charity Commission, pictured, has warned charities to control boardroom pay or risk doing harm to their reputations And with no sense of shame, they used the controversy to beg for more for cash. No mention of all those six-figure salaries. Perhaps this is inevitable. These big charities have a track record of persistent failure, yet grew fat from state handouts as successive governments doled out more and more cash for their flawed foreign aid projects.

How do you prove someone is suicidal, before they neck the overdose? And up until recently Ireland had different attitudes about child bearing.

Is this plain feminist hypocrisy or a Freudian slip?
Posts that exist merely to denigrate men or white people or posts meant to cajole or shame you into calling yourself a feminist. The fact that these people are within your networks means they are your friends. You have probably known them to be of acceptable levels of intelligence at some point, when you allowed them into your network.
How exactly does this happen? How do normal and intelligent people wind up becoming consumed by a cult like ideology built on feelings and identity politics?

Post contains potentially upsetting discussion of eugenics, forced sterilization and racially insensitive commentary from the white-centric Nonhuman Animal rights community. Also references sexist, classist, and ableist positions that are responsible for considerable structural harm to vulnerable demographics. Michele Martindill Stories about overpopulation appear so often in the news and op-ed essays they are barely gets a second glance. Overpopulation is blamed for all the ills of the social world, everything from obvious social problems such as poverty and hunger to less known concerns such as climate change and deforestation of the planet.
Rarely is the concept of overpopulation questioned or defined beyond citing the overall population of planet earth or particular nation states. It is easy enough to find the figures—earth now has an estimated population of 7, , , as of this writing Current World Population, and the United States has an estimated population of , , Whenever news stories question how to dispose of the vast amounts of garbage generated by such numbers or to address an environmental hazard such as carbon emissions the first thought is to reduce the population that is destroying the planet.
Altheide, author of Creating Fear: Vegans are divided in their response to overpopulation stories, but they seem to agree something must be done to save the planet and the lives of animals.
But, what is feminist teaching? How can educators use feminist teaching as a means to bring critical thinking to classrooms? The use of feminist teaching introduces perspectives that are different from the normative way of looking at the world. Critical thinking involves the ability to think outside the box of general belief. Course content and material should enhance problem solving skills, which in turn will teach students how to create good questions.
May 27, · I am encouraged that this author was at least willing to question her own ingrained sexism. I also am heartened by those who stressed the harm caused by this form of gender discrimination to men, as well as the hypocrisy (from a feminist standpoint) of rationalizing it as a mere individual “preference.”.
The protestors did not frame their anger and inflammatory rhetoric in this way, though. But more than that: The spitting rage behind those words — the desire to follow through with a punch — is too often present. I have always known these words are used against me as an explicit reminder: No matter how confident, tough, self-assured, strong, or brave a woman is, these words still put her in her place. In other words, it is an attack on women-centered political organizing and the basic theory that underpins feminist analysis of patriarchy.
In other words, in order to understand how patriarchy works, you must first understand who is a member of the dominant class and who is a member of the subordinate class. You must understand that male violence against women is systemic.
Sulli and K-Pop’s Lolita Hypocrisy
I think the reason why other feminists call women sluts is because of the deep seeded biological need to destroy sexual competition. If people just admitted that then things would make sense. It’s not because those feminist calling other feminist sluts are truly against “sluttiness’ because often times they are slutty themselves but because they are against OTHER women being slutty because they want to kill the competition. It’s just the animal part of our nature that many women haven’t learned to suppress and also because they’re probably insecure so that doesn’t help.
Exposing the hypocrisy and double standards of feminism.
Jon Socrates Jon finds purpose in the cultivation of wisdom, strength, and manly virtue. Amanda Hess is the author of a prodigious number of feminist rants. Highlights include chastising Stephen Colbert for hiring writers based on his assessment of their talent, rather than affirmative action, and defending a woman who knowingly and repeatedly put the care of her son in the hands of the mentally unstable, murderously violent boyfriend who eventually killed the boy.
In her recent Slate. Instead, feminists believe that workplace environments need to change to accommodate them. Another victim of patriarchy Feminists Believe Male Strength Is Bad Hess presents another critique of men working to help women when she writes: Hess and Macomber illustrate two things here. The truth, however, is that men can cultivate strength of body, of mind, and of spirit only through personal effort.
In reality, feminism is primarily about eroding the strength of men. Accordingly, men could only ever fully participate in feminism which supposedly is about gender equality if and when they are weak. This statement illustrates one of the most insidious elements of liberal and progressive thought—the notion of collective responsibility. What does a feminist call a man who gets falsely accused of rape, another man who works 60 hours a week to support his family, and a third man who gets blown up in Iraq?
Hess cannot articulate what she wants male feminists to do, because she is not fundamentally concerned with what they do or accomplish. She is concerned with how they make her feel.
Justin Bieber & Demi Lovato: Feminist Slut Shaming Lie Exposed!!
Hollywood Hollywood has been accused of hypocrisy as allegations of sexual harassment against Harvey Weinstein , the volcanic-tempered movie mogul, were met with a “deafening silence” from A-list stars. Two days after the New York Times reported that Weinstein had reached at least eight legal settlements with women dating back decades, only a smattering of entertainment industry figures stepped up to condemn a man who has long held the power to make or break careers.
Lisa Bloom, a feminist lawyer who had been criticised for her decision to advise Weinstein, announced on Saturday that she was resigning.
The idea of feminisim is amazing. In fact I like to consider myself a feminist, but when you take a step back and look at the bigger picture you see a lot of hypcritical women calling themselves feminist. I have met many women.
Coming from this lovely tumblr 1. They constantly victimize my gender, and I find it insulting. Treating women like victims instead of empowering them does nothing but hold us back. They claim to want equality, but expect special treatment. Feminists want men to become feminized and sensitive, rather then masculating themselves for equality. A lot of them are Marxist socialist vegans.
I find it peculiar. They get offended too easily and make women look crazy. Feminists fail to see the redundancy in the modern-day feminist movement. Countries where there are laws against rape, harassment and abuse. But what about the gender pay gap? Well, That brings me to my next point… 8. Women are less likely to take dangerous, high-paying jobs and less likely to work in high-paying computer and engineering fields.

The concept for this piece came to me after masochistically delving into the manosphere: Memes abound how feminists hate sex and only ever use it as a weapon. Feminists have emasculated everything it means to be a man and will only spread their legs for financial gain then beta cuck mangina white knight something something. I know a lot of feminists who love sex. So why do misogynists deign to declare feminists as anti sex?
Feminism, Sex and Hypocrisy Perhaps readers will recall Nian Hu (@Nian_Hu on Twitter) or you may need to be reminded that Ms. Hu is the Harvard student who declared: “I am a feminist. I believe in the equality of the sexes.
He is fairly emotionally perceptive for his age, as his grownups have been working with him to create an emotionally responsible and self-aware boy who we hope will grow into an emotionally responsible and self-aware man. He knows at six that when you hurt someone, you go back right away and own, apologize, and do repair.
For him that can mean if he hurts his friend while playing, he ideally under his own initiative is expected to promptly name what he did, apologize sincerely and lovingly, and ask his friend what he needs, or how he can help make things right between them: He is taught to listen to the needs and feelings of the other and act in a responsive way. He is being encouraged to develop and express his empathic capacities, capacities he will need as a man. Whether with his parents, his friends at school, or his baby sister who cannot even speak yet, he is being taught to hear and notice how other people feel, to empathize and connect, to watch cues, and to act like someone aware of and able to embody his relational responsibilities.
He is also being taught that he is not shameful. He is loved and good, he did a thing that hurt someone, and he has to make it right. These are not mutually exclusive, but connected.
‘TERF’ isn’t just a slur, it’s hate speech
February 19, Lots of men in their 40s are active in online dating, but none of them seem to want a woman born in the same decade, says Lori Day. In the last 11 days, 47 men have viewed my profile. I think that should make me feel good about myself, although for all I know, the lady who dives the Great Barrier Reef and rides her Harley on weekends has been viewed times.
“False analogy regarding the dating, because [American style] dating is a marginal phenomena in Sweden compared to in the US.” That is largely my point. Old school, American style dating (which is dying a slow, painful death in the USA, despite keeping a firm foothold on things) cannot coexist with the tenets of feminism.
By empowering women, critics argue, feminists are really oppressing men. Now, feminists are ironically embracing the man-hating label: What I find truly ironic about this trend is it comes from a group of women so thin skinned they erupt with moral outrage over any dick joke uttered in their company. Hypocrisy So let me get this straight: Everyone has a different idea of what is humorous. The issue is the hypocrisy and that feminists refuse to acknowledge it.

Getty ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’ Cast Reunites for 20th Anniversary “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” creator Joss Whedon’s ex-wife, Kai Cole, unloaded on him Sunday for being a liar, an adulterer and a faux feminist in a tell-all op-ed about their relationship. Whedon filed for divorce back in December , listing the date of separation as April 20 of that same year.
At the time, he was making the transition from the small screen to the big screen and would often mention his wife in interviews. View Story “He never conceded the hypocrisy of being out in the world preaching feminist ideals, while at the same time, taking away my right to make choices for my life and my body based on the truth,” she revealed. And in return, he lied to me,” she said.
He said, after he left, he understood: That I’d been poisoning you. Chipping away at you. By the time he finally confessed the truth, 15 years after his first affair on the set of ‘Buffy,’ I was broken. My brain could not fit my experience of our life together, through the new lens of his deceit.
