Frenchwoman Jailed For Only 18 Months For Torturing Boyfriend

By Mike Buchanan: Another ridiculously lenient sentence, this time in France. I cannot help but look in such articles for the inevitable excuse(s). Inevitable because women must not be seen as having moral agency, as being the equals of men when it comes to being held responsible for their actions and inactions. The excuse is at the end of the piece:
Medkour’s lawyers blamed her addiction to alcohol and she apologised for her actions. I’m not heartless,” she was quoted as saying.
The following lazy journalism is not unexpected in a piece on the BBC website:
French campaign groups say abuse by men against women is three times more common, but say as many as 7,000 men complain of abuse every year.
‘French campaign groups’, eh? Hmm, I wonder if they might be run by feminists, given that in the UK the figure would be 1.5 times more common (British Crime Surveys consistently report this ratio). And anyway, does the ratio matter? Should we not care about men such as Maxime Gaget?
7,000 Frenchmen complain of abuse every year, they say. Even if the figure is true, it’s surely a huge under-statement of the number of Frenchmen being abused by female partners. Source

Varoufakis’s Great Game

By : Game theorists know that a Plan A is never enough. One must also develop and put forward a credible Plan B – the implied threat that drives forward negotiations on Plan A. Greece’s finance minister, Yanis Varoufakis, knows this very well. As the Greek government’s anointed “heavy,” he is working Plan B (a potential exit from the eurozone), while Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras makes himself available for Plan A (an extension on Greece’s loan agreement, and a renegotiation of the terms of its bailout). In a sense, they are playing the classic game of “good cop/bad cop” – and, so far, to great effect.

Plan B comprises two key elements. First, there is simple provocation, aimed at riling up Greek citizens and thus escalating tensions between the country and its creditors. Greece’s citizens must believe that they are escaping grave injustice if they are to continue to trust their government during the difficult period that would follow an exit from the eurozone.

Second, the Greek government is driving up the costs of Plan B for the other side, by allowing capital flight by its citizens. If it so chose, the government could contain this trend with a more conciliatory approach, or stop it outright with the introduction of capital controls. But doing so would weaken its negotiating position, and that is not an option.

Policing Solidarity

By Gilad Atzmon: I believe  it was my recent expose of JVP’s harassment, slander and herem (excommunication) campaigns that led to a new petition calling on us to  “End slander in the pro-Palestine movement online.”
Of course I oppose slander and abuse, but I also reject any form of censorship and thought control. Even though, more than anyone else, I have been the target of vile slander, I will not sign this petition nor will I support it.
The petition pledges to “block”, “delete” and/or “remove” those who behave in such a way as to interfere with ‘unity’. Do I have to remind our activist ‘undersigners’ that while ‘unity’ is not exactly a value, truth, justice and freedom most certainly are? 
Rather than blocking the JVP leadership for tagging Ken O’Keefe as a ‘prominent Neo Nazi’ or associating Alison Weir with ‘White Supremacism’, we have to deal with the problem by openly questioning why these tactics are prevalent within certain Jewish groups - both Zionist and anti-Zionist - and why they keep appearing in our midst. And at the same time we must encourage our Jewish liberal ‘allies,’ as they call themselves, to search their souls, self-reflect and then to mend their ways.

Milo Yiannopoulos: A Mutilated Penis Is A Sexy Penis!

By : Breitbart.com is a pretty decent conservative website with some great commentary, even if it is at times a little lockstep with the two party paradigm that doesn’t actually exist. They even do some really cogent fisking of feminism and the social justice crowd.
So, you can imagine my dismay when they posted a piece by Milo Yiannopoulos that was quite possibly the most stupid and disturbing piece I have seen since the Agent Orange Files. When I say that I am not excluding the pap served up at places like Jezebel, Raw Story and Anita Sarkeesian’s YouTube channel.
The rationale he employs in his piece actually does fall in line with what I have seen from pro-mutilation feminists who think male genital mutilation is a good thing because they prefer the penis after it has been cut, though I must admit I have never seen a feminist be so brazen or, uh, detailed about it.
Milo informs us that he is gay, and then uses far too many words to paint a portrait of a gay man who likes “circumcision” because he thinks it will up the chances of getting a blow job. At least from him. As he says with flirtatious promise:

Perhaps as a gay man I’m biased, but aesthetics matter. And let me tell you – sorry if this veers into “TMI” territory – that I’m infinitely more likely to make you happy down there if you’re cut.”
OK, so gay men are not exempt from being stupid. Or shallow.

“Dear Moderate Feminists, You Don’t Exist” Feminism Is Defined By The Laws And Public Policy It Has Created

MensRights subreddit: This is a letter to all the moderate, armchair feminists out there. You know who you are. You’re a feminist because you believe in equality! You believe men and women should have equal rights, that feminists aren’t all a bunch of man haters, and you don’t understand why some people (like MRAs and Red Pillers) are just so darn angry with feminists all the time. You certainly never did anything to hurt us! You only want for all of us to just get along!

To all you ladies and gentlemen, I’d like to take you through an explanation as to why you, yes you, sitting at your computer or browsing on your mobile, you, who are an actual living, breathing person with a variety of thoughts, feelings, and experiences at your disposal, why you don’t actually, for all practical intents and purposes, exist.

(1) You don’t make the laws.

Ask yourself this, my moderate feminist reader – when was the last time you, and whatever moderate feminist organization that you’re a part of, created or influenced legislation that got passed or policy changes that got enacted? You got women the vote, you say? Come now, I highly doubt it was you and your specific moderate feminist lobbying organization that you’re a part of that got women the vote. Nothing? Interesting. Well, since you haven’t created any laws that have impacted society, I guess there’s no proof there that you exist these days.

State Charges Alleged Serial False Rape Accuser, But She Disappears

By An assistant attorney general for Montana says that 24-year-old Christina Nadine Nelson, formerly Christina Mark, made a string of alleged false accusations against three men between 2009 and 2012. A total of five medical rape exams were conducted on her, and she made two reports of assault. Christina had a motive or pattern of accusing young men that she had dated of raping her and assaulting her when no such rape or assault had occurred,” prosecutors have stated in court documents. At least one of the young men has been scarred for life.
Now, finally, she’s being charged with felonies in connection with two of the allegations she made. Except there’s a problem: authorities can’t find her. Nelson did not appear for her initial appearance on May 21. She wasn’t required to appear in person but by telephone. An assistant attorney general said Friday that Nelson’s whereabouts aren’t known, even by her own attorney. Nelson was supposed to appear last week in Yellowstone County as well but didn’t show. An assistant attorney general fears she might be in Europe.
How was this woman permitted to leave the country?
