Rape Culture is a ‘Panic Where Paranoia, Censorship, and False Accusations Flourish’

“Warner received surprising news. The local police had determined not only that Warner was innocent, but that the alleged victim had deliberately falsified her charges. She was charged with lying to police for filing a false report, and fled the state. Cases like Warner’s are proliferating.

When we casually assume that a woman suffers more harm from a nasty (or even sexually threatening) online comment than a man does from, say, castration threats and gibes about pedophilia or jeers about the death of his infant child, we’re not only being callous to men but upholding the very stereotypes of ‘the weaker sex’ that feminists supposedly deplore.” Continue reading

Why men still can’t have it all

“Men in dual-income couples work outside the home eleven more hours a week than their working wives or partners do (forty-two to thirty-one), and when you look at the total weekly workload, including paid work outside the home and unpaid work inside the home, men and women are putting in roughly the same number of hours: fifty-eight hours for men and fifty-nine for women.” Continue reading
