Ask your girlfriend. Ask your sister. Ask – horrifyingly – your teenage daughter. Research by Professor Jessica Ringrose from University College London found that 76 per cent of girls aged 12-18 had been sent unsolicited nude images of boys or men. (And that study was carried out in 2020, before the pandemic intensified online harassment many times over.)

Ask a woman in her teens or twenties or thirties if a man has slid into her DMs and asked her to send him videos. Ask if she’s ever had an image sent to her phone via AirDrop by a stranger sitting nearby on the bus. Ask if she’s ever got chatting to a guy on a dating app, given him her number and suddenly been deluged with pictures of his penis – without even having gone on a date. The answer will almost certainly be yes.
If you’re over 40, however, you might well be blithely unaware of the extent of the issue. Less because, as members of my fortysomething book club commented the other night when I did a straw poll on the subject, “Nobody wants to AirDrop their dick to a middle-aged woman,” and more, I believe, because our demographic – too old to be digital natives, or even confidently to know how to turn on their AirDrop facility – simply spends far less of their life online. Those female friends over 40 with prominent public and social media profiles – and who are therefore more digitally accessible – are, in fact, bombarded with images and abuse.

“I think it is you, the women, who have had the most diabolic lies told to you. Some of you may go on to lead successful careers in the world but I would venture to guess that the majority of you are most excited about your marriage and the children you will bring into this world.

“I can tell you that my beautiful wife Isabelle would be the first to say her life truly started when she started living her vocation as a wife and as a mother. I’m on this stage today, able to be the man that I am, because I have a wife who leans into her vocation.

“I’m beyond blessed with the many talents God has given me, but it cannot be overstated that all my success is made possible because a girl I met in band class back in middle school would convert to the faith, become my wife, and embrace one of the most important titles of all. Homemaker.”

Then, Butker got to what he termed the dangers of the “church of nice.”

“The world around us says that we should keep our beliefs to ourselves whenever they go against the tyranny of diversity, equity and inclusion,” Butker said. “We fear speaking truth, because now, unfortunately, truth is in the minority.”

Then, on to Pride Month, which takes place in June.

“Not the deadly sins sort of Pride that has an entire month dedicated to it, “but the true God-centered pride that is cooperating with the holy ghost to glorify him.”

Got to love the wannabe mind readers who think they just KNOW what makes women happiest. Sure, some women are happy to be home makers for a rich man, but the reality is that being a home maker often really sucks. ...and of course he has to pepper this with not knowing what a gay person is.

It sure would be nice if football players would just shut up and stay on the gridiron, where they belong.

The number of times I've heard (American!) football fans refer to someone on a team as "just a kicker."

:hellokitty:
That's what I was thinking, that he's overcompensating because being a kicker is seen by fans as being less "manly" than the other positions.

It's horrible what she was put through, but fighting back sometimes pays off. I am bothered by the fact she had to pay 3,000 pounds to get the transcript to her trial. What the hell?
That's awesome that she won the settlement but it was at great cost. I've also heard HORRIBLE stories about rape survivors in the military getting dragged over the coals over allegedly wearing something slightly unprofessional. I respect that defense attorneys have to do their job but it seems like many cross the line into just being a blatant rape apologist.

Calgary lawyer resigns from firm after sending 'disturbing' and 'misogynistic' email

He sent them to dozens of colleagues so that tells us he felt comfortable enough to do so. He was pushed to resign, but I wonder what kind of environment it is for any women working there, or anyone really. These types rarely feel bold enough to spew out their shit unless their “colleagues” nod along.

I won’t quote everything he wrote, but here’s a couple.


A Calgary lawyer has resigned after sending an email described by his firm as "deeply disturbing" in which he twice refers to women as "a person with a vagina" and repeatedly mocks transgender people.

….

Rakochey, who has been practising law in Alberta for the past 34 years, sent a 2,000-word email on May 7 to dozens of colleagues and lawyers in Calgary, inviting them to his annual Rob Rakochey Invitational golf tournament in Kimberley, B.C.

"Probably leave the Ho's behind this trip — there is enough talent in town," he wrote in the email.
