International Men’s Day Saturday, 19 November - Protest Outside The Royal Courts Of Justice, London, England

By Mike Buchanan J4MB: We haven’t yet decided how to commemorate International Men’s Day, but a protest we’re strongly inclining to is this.
The protest will be outside the Royal Courts of Justice – 11:00, Saturday, 19 November. The full description:

Family lives matter.
Time to talk, Time to listen, Time to act,
suicide is not an option.

Fighting for family law reform and equal rights.
Aiming to highlight the failings of the family/divorce courts and associated organization’s that can lead to so many men committing/considering suicide. Also a celebration of all fathers and mens groups that help in these dark times.
We aim to show the magnitude of the problem by taking teddies/dolls to parliament with our children’s first names attached. Each teddy/doll representing a child missing out on the love of a father, grandfather, grandmothers, aunts, uncles, siblings and cousins. After the event the teddies and dolls will be donated to a childrens charity.

Is Bibi A Lizard?

By Gilad Atzmon: Netanyahu's recent ethnic-cleansing video offers us a spectacular glimpse into Jewish identity politics and the ease with which the Jews morph between ideology and political stance. In the video below, PM Netanyahu accuses the Palestinians and their supporters, by making it a condition of peace that Israel withdraws its illegal settlement, of leanings towards ethnic cleansing.

The Great Profile

'The way to fight a woman is with your hat
grab it and run.'
By : As a star of stage, screen, and radio, John Barrymore, born on February 15, 1882,  was one of the most famous men in America.  During the 1920s his name recognition was right up there with Babe Ruth, Charles Lindbergh, and Al Capone.
Starting off on the stage, he was a prominent leading man, arguably America’s foremost Shakespearean actor.  Beginning in 1914, silent movies spread his image far and wide.  In the 20’s, he portrayed Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Sherlock Holmes, Don Juan, Captain Ahab, Francois Villon, and Beau Brummell.  His superb stage voice enabled him to make a seamless transition from silents to talkies.  His leading man persona shone as brightly on screen as it did on the stage.  His nickname was the Great Profile.
Given his heredity and environment (theatrical families on both sides), it is not surprising that he would take to the stage.  His sister Ethel and his brother Lionel were also thespians with long careers.  Since Ethel was more involved with theater than movies, she is pretty much forgotten today.  Lionel, essentially a character actor, occupies a unique niche in popular culture thanks to his role as the parsimonious Mr. Potter in It’s a Wonderful Life.  Regarding sheer star power, however, John was clearly the pick of the litter.  This is not to say his life was free of speed bumps.

Johnson And Boswell On Sexual Behavior In The Age Of Enlightenment

In the Age of Enlightenment in eighteenth-century England, the double standard in reproductive freedom hadn’t yet emerged to make the dominant understanding of reproductive choice farcically unreasonable. While eighteenth-century English courts were gender-biased toward awarding custody of young children to mothers, that gender bias wasn’t nearly as large as it is today. In the Age of Enlightenment, man tended to be publicly understood as a generic human being lacking men’s sexual distinctiveness. Yet the Enlightenment ideal that all humans are created equal was publicly much more significant in eighteenth-century England than in the present-day United States. In the context of eighteenth-century Enlightenment, Samuel Johnson, arguably the most distinguished literary intellectual in English history, and James Boswell, Johnson’s popular and acclaimed biographer, discussed sexual behavior.
As published in 1791, Boswell’s The Life of Johnson included some discussion between Boswell and Johnson on marital fidelity. Boswell questioned Johnson’s views, which apparently were controversial for that time:

Mothers Must Help Stop Violence Against Men

Mothers bear a share of responsibility for violence against men being much more prevalent than violence against women. Throughout history, women have incited men to violence against men. In the ancient world, Spartan mothers were particularly renowned for urging their sons to either succeed in killing other men, or be killed.
Ancient epigrams preserved in both Greek and Latin show Spartan mothers instructing their sons in violence against men. Writing about 100 GC in Greek, an author from the Roman elite recorded:

Another {Spartan mother}, as she handed her son his fighting shield, exhorted him, saying, “Either {return with} this or upon this.”
Another, as her son was going forth to war, said as she gave the shield into his hands, “This shield your father kept always safe for you; you, therefore, keep it safe, or cease to live.”
Ἄλλη προσαναδιδοῦσα τῷ παιδὶ τὴν ἀσπίδα καὶ παρακελευομένη, “τέκνον,” ἔφη, “ἢ τὰν ἢ ἐπὶ τᾶς.”
Ἄλλη προϊόντι τῷ υἱῷ ἐπὶ πόλεμον ἀναδιδοῦσα τὴν ἀσπίδα, “ταύτην,” ἔφη, “ὁ πατήρ σοι ἀεὶ ἔσῳζε· καὶ σὺ οὖν ἢ ταύτην σῷζε ἢ μὴ ἔσο.” [1]

Johnson’s Dictionary And Life Shows Gender Bias & Gender Subordination

Samuel Johnson’s Dictionary of the English Language, published in 1755, was widely respected and enormously influential. In his Dictionary, Johnson defined woman and man with deeply rooted anti-men gender bias. In his life, Johnson delighted in a woman referring to him as “my slave.” She would at his imploring bind him in handcuffs and whip him while he kissed her feet.
Johnson defined woman simply. His first definition of woman is “the female of the human race.” That definition elevates immature females to the status of women. To Johnson, women’s social status apparently was a simple fact of female biology. Johnson included one additional definition of woman: “a female attendant on a person of rank.” That definition recognizes significant differences in status among persons. Johnson’s illustrative quotation presented an adult female human attending another, highly privileged adult female human.
Johnson presented women as superior to men. To illustrate his first definition of woman, Johnson quoted the first two lines from a man’s declaration to a woman:
