That headline is a blatant lie. Blatant, even for CNN.

Second paragraph:

He had been in line for a chicken sandwich when he and another man got into an argument, which spilled onto the street, Donelan said. Police believe the argument began over someone cutting in line.
Nobody even had chicken sandwiches yet. Someone was stabbed to death over line-cutting.

More importantly IMO, someone was stabbed to death over entitlement - the sense of entitlement that led a person to cut in line partially, but mostly the sense of entitlement borne of having a place in a line at a restaurant that is so profound it leads one to think someone who disrespects it by cutting in line literally deserves to die for the outrage.

The Guardian's Sirin Kale attends a course for pick-up artists at an upmarket Mayfair hotel:


I have to wonder whether the two students, "Mike" and "Raj" (not their real names, apparently) did not think that the course organiser's decision to allow a Guardian reporter to attend the event should ring a few alarm bells.

Sooooo....


Also there are a couple of follow-ups to that tweet but honestly you may not want to read them.
I see Mr Martin's twitter bio, which your screenshots reproduce, include the information he sued the LSE for gender bias against men.

Here's what happened:

Yeah, guitarists like myself trend to think of Marr refueling separately, but the general public thinks of the Smiths I guess. He's done so much more than that.
Some of the best work by Modest Mouse has him on guitar.

Well that's pretty new to me too and I'm a guy. Maybe I've been doing it wrong my whole life?

>> The rapper added, "I will say, as of her 18th birthday, her hymen is still intact."

Anal sex is a Godsend.

If Mr T.I. is to be believed, the gynecologist's role in this is somewhat questionable.

On his account, she's been divulging confidential medical information to him about his daughter that there's no conceivable reason for him to know.

I'd be surprised if that's legal, let alone in line with US gynecologists' professional standards.

Indeed, to my mind the father's repeatedly asking his daughter's gynecologist for such intimate medical information throughout her teenage years, which he seems to be saying is what he's done, should probably have prompted the gynecologist to contact the appropriate child protection authorities.

Ew...another man who believes that he owns the women in his life. No doubt this vile belief shows up in other ways in her life, as well.
I'd like to hear what his daughter thinks of this. He may have her too intimidated to speak out, though.

Or having good safe consensual sex. Where she is the master of her own domain. So she can look forward to sexual encounters and learn to choose a partner who respects her. If her father is the example he has set up though...
Just so. He sure sounds like he wants her to be subservient, and eventually the property of a man he approves of.
