Women Underestimate Own Sexual Intention And Men Overestimate Women’s Sexual Intention

By Jordan HolbrookWith all the recent furore around consent and the so-called ‘rape culture’, how many of these crossed wires and sexual/romantic faux pas are the fault of men? According to a recent study, men and women could be both held equally accountable for giving and reading into wrong signals, resulting in miscommunication and a touch on the knee or an attempt at a kiss when one isn’t wanted. These findings contradict the argument that it is men who overstep the boundary by assuming a woman is giving sexual signals when she is not.
Whilst it is true that it has been found men do predict a woman’s sexual intentions to be higher than what she later says her intentions actually were, it has previously been argued whether this occurs because men overestimate women’s intentions or because women underreport their intentions.
In the study published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, Professor Priya Raghubir, chair of the Marketing Department at NYU Stern School of Business, and former NYU Visiting Postdoctoral Scholar Isabelle Engeler, find a gap in how women and men interpret dating situations and intentions.
Across three experiments, they measured the ‘misprediction bias’ between men and women. In the first experiment, they assessed the overall size of the misprediction bias then they altered the order-of-elicitation of self- and other-reports to assess the impact of the order on self-awareness and honesty, which occurred in experiments two and three.

UK Prisoners By Sex: The MoJ Report

1. Introduction and Background
Well, well, what do we have here? A report from the MoJ itself on gender disparity in prison sentencing. I’ll get to that. First, a brief reprise.
It was in February 2014 I first wrote an article, on my older site, about men being treated more harshly than women by the judiciary in regard to imprisonment. In the process I discovered I was not the only one to have noticed. Philip Davies, MP for Shipley, had spoken about the matter in Parliament on 16th October 2012 (2:30pm). I later posted a precis of the argument on this site on 21st November 2014. It was to become the most visited article on this site (excluding the Home Page and “Introduction”).
I addressed various challenges to my (admittedly crude) analysis in this post which followed in March 2015. Later I presented an updated analysis, here, based on indictable offences only, which I now regard as more robust. Both the original analysis and the updated analysis were presented in a public talk held at UCL on 25th February 2016 (see the Powerpoint slides or watch the video).
Then, on the 8th July 2016 Philip Davies spoke again, at ICMI16, on the matter of the different treatment of men and women as regards prison sentencing.

Russia Follows USA's Lead, Approves 'Foreign Agents' Media Law, Starts With CIA Propaganda Outlet 'Radio Free Europe'

On the one hand limits to speech like this are unfortunate, on the other they decrease the chance of a US-funded color "revolution" - which unlike Russian meddling in US elections
are not a myth, but an Eastern European reality
RT: The upper house of the Russian parliament has overwhelmingly supported a landmark bill requiring foreign media outlets such as Voice of America, Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty to register as foreign agents.
The Federation Council supported the legislation during a vote on Wednesday. Under the law, any foreign-funded media outlet may be designated a foreign agent by the Justice Ministry. The status stipulates that those outlets must comply with the requirements of the new law. 
The bill was introduced to the State Duma, the lower house, and adopted by MPs on November 15. In the bill, "foreign media performing the functions of a foreign agent," are defined as entities distributing "to unlimited audience, print, audio, audiovisual and other messages and materials."

Toxic Feminism - Honey Badger Radio Talk

HoneyBadgerRadio: A look at the feminist-led response to International Men's Day. We jokingly made a prediction at the beginning of a previous episode of HBR Talk, and well, in response, feminists have given us a significant clue as to why they have so much trouble understanding sarcasm, parody, and satire.

B Is For Book Burners

By Gilad Atzmon: The New York Daily News reports that Leaders of a prominent West Side synagogue are threatening to cancel a book fair next month unless a nearby store ditches a pro-Palestine children’s book.
P is for Palestine” teaches children the alphabet using Palestinian references. But Rabbi Ammiel Hirsch  (photo above) of the Stephen Wise Free Synagogue said it also glorifies violence.
“The book states that ‘I is for Intifada,’ Arabic for rising up for what is right, if you are a kid or grownup!” Rabbi Hirsch said in an open letter posted on the temple’s website. “The intifada was not ‘a rising up for what is right.’ It was a mass descent into immorality.” 
It would be helpful if the Rabbi explains to us how a popular uprise against a brutal racist occupier is 'immoral.'  I would also like to learn from the rabbi whether book burning is a reform Jewish value, it has clearly become a popular exercise.
The book "P is for Palestine" is on sale at the Book Culture bookstore on Columbus Ave. on the Upper West Side.

All We Are Thankful For

Max and Stacy discuss all that they are thankful for: from cryptocurrency to travel to being back on the frontline, as one system disintegrates and another to emerge. They discuss working for RT and the platform it provides. And so many other things for which to be thankful.

'They Never Send Their Children To Fight For Their Country'

Reported by Gilad Atzmon: Israel's deputy foreign minister Tzipi Hotovely attacked U.S. Jewry in an interview with i24 News on Wednesday.  Hotovely referred to American Jews as  “people that never send their children to fight for their country, most of the Jews don’t have children serving as soldiers, going to the Marines, going to Afghanistan, or to Iraq. Most of them are having quite convenient lives…”
PM Netanyahu was very quick to condemn his deputy minister. This is understandable, after all Jews being reluctant to fight American wars doesn’t fit nicely  with the embarrassing  fact that America has been fighting Israeli wars for a while.

Israeli Diplomats Get Cold Shoulder From UK Students

By Alia Malak: As Israel and the UK government celebrate 100 years of the Balfour Declaration – marking Britain’s support for the settler project that led to the ethnic cleansing of Palestine – students on British campuses are asserting their support for Palestinian rights.
Last month, dozens of students demonstrated when Michael Freeman, counsellor for civil society affairs at the Israeli embassy in London, visited Bristol.
Students say they opposed Freeman’s visit because of the policies he represents as an Israeli diplomat.
Student protesters engaged with passersby on campus and passed out educational leaflets on Israel’s war crimes. The protest lasted for the entire duration of Freeman’s two-hour event.
Freeman’s visit to Bristol was part of a series of talks given by Israeli diplomats at universities around the UK. The talks are an attempt by the Israeli embassy to whitewash Israel’s crimes against the Palestinian people.
Both Freeman and Mark Regev, Israel’s ambassador to the UK, recently scheduled events on campuses across the country.
This is part and parcel of a larger project, backed by Israel, of fighting the Palestinian-led boycott, divestment and sanctions movement and its supporters who run campaigns to end UK corporate and institutional complicity in Israel’s human rights violations.
