Forget the swimsuit issue… Caitlyn Jenner will be posing in nothing but an American flag and Olympic gold metal for an upcoming Sports Illustrated cover.

Danish sex club sued for age discrimination after requiring staff to be over the age of 21.

New international study notes that girls demonstrate “math anxiety” (not performance) at much higher levels than boys, even in countries where equality between the sexes is highly valued:

“Math has long been considered a masculine subject across the globe, which may make female students feel inferior before they take their first lesson.”

Ann O’Neill, whose ex-husband shot their two children in a murder-suicide in 1994, argues that survivors of domestic violence are re-victimized by media. 

After a 20-year killing spree, Lonnie Franklin Jr. (known as the “grim sleeper”) is convicted of killing 10 Los Angeles women.

    Since Caitlyn Jenner now identifies as a woman, it would be so great to see her use her fame and notoriety to support women’s causes like repro rights and ending VAW.
    But instead she is posing for magazine covers, filming reality tv shows, accepting awards and trying to make us like Republican candidates…

      It’s almost like Caitlyn approves of and welcomes women’s sexual subordination and women being seen as mere set decoration for men to gawk at, hmmm. Oh that’s right, it’s because he’s a dude.

    First of all, I find it difficult to use the pronoun she when speaking about Caitlyn Jenner. So I understand if this post will be censored.

    Though I firmly belief that there are those born in the wrong body, and I wholeheartedly support their choices, I also think there are cases that are suspect. In fact, some are disturbing. Caitlyn Jenner is one of those cases. The choice of the name Caitlyn is perplexing. After all, it’s the name of his son’s girlfriend who spells it with a K. By Caitlyn’s admission, he/she used to steal the daughter’s clothes. Never mind he/she could not wear them. Then, there is the preoccupation with the most shallow aspects of womanhood. The appearance on Vanity Fair in lingerie. The appearance in Glamour.

    But the most shocking behavior by Jenner occurred during a car accident. It was the aberrant . He rear-ended a car and knocked it into the oncoming lane. Another car struck the vehicle and a woman was killed. Others were sent to the hospital. Jenner’s reaction during the accident was of an aloof male. A woman is dead. Yet, Jenner was strolling around, with hands in pockets, inspecting the car damage.

    Moreover, I don’t know if some of this is some kind of a narcissistic competition with women or what. It also reeks of misogyny. I think it also represents a betrayal of psychiatric community of women. But that is nothing knew. Human behavior is governed by men. It is their sexuality that rules. It’s why women’s issues continue to be minimized and discounted..

      Bruce Jenner continues to be male, wearing dresses and getting a manicure does not change a 65 year old male who has benefitted from a male oriented society for decades into a female. Bruce is an old cross dressing autogynephile who gets off by impersonating a woman, he has never nor will he ever know what it is really like to be female in our society, he’d drop it like a hot potato if he ever got a clue!

        Thanks Zuzanna for the definition.

      You obviously believe the common gender myth that the sexes are born with separate different minds.I recently found this brand new very good,really important long article debunking myths that gender identity is innate and fixed! It’s by two male psychiatrists,Lawrence S.Mayor and Paul R.McHugh. One of their many references is The American Psychological Associations pamphlet on Transgenderism and gender and it says while sex is biological,gender is socially constructed. They say they are very concerned that little children are being transgendered and that most children have been found to grow out of ”gender identity’ disorder.


      My recent important blog,Debunking Common Sexist Myths Of Gender With a lot of strong important research studies and other important information.

      Who is the ”wrong” body wrong to? A very sexist,very gender divided,gender stereotyped,male dominated society that is totally obsessed and oriented with making the sexes into artificial opposite ”feminine” and ”masculine” categories.
