Gender loses its impact with the young
USA Today, by Sharon Jayson

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 6/21/2014 1:20:04 PM

They´re young. They like things their way. They don´t like stereotypes and steer clear of conformity. Because young people ages 34 and younger are legions larger than the dominant-until-now-Baby Boom generation, their likes and dislikes command lots of attention. High on their list is gender identity — a concept they´re increasingly resisting. "Gender stereotypes are conformity," says Jamie Gutfreund, chief strategy officer of The Intelligence Group, a consumer insights and strategy group based in Los Angeles whose summer/fall 2013 report about gender paints a vivid portrait of younger generations´ attitudes. The survey reveals that

""They (Millennials) want to talk about gender in terms of race, class, in terms of immigration. It´s a more nuanced conversation about gender," says Áine Duggan, Re:Gender´s president. "Very often, people use the word ´gender´ when they mean biological sex. What we´re seeing now is that people´s sense of gender identity is not the same as their biological sex. People want to feel free and open to have whatever mix of masculinity and femininity seems right for them."

Madness. Socialist utopian madness. It´s one thing to say that men and women aren´t expected to fill traditional gender roles today (like provider, homemaker, etc) It´s entirely another to say that gender no longer matters and is subsumed by ambiguous sexuality and/or women can do the same physical roles men do (EG military service) That´s just BS.

Choosing to be masculine comes with too many risks and is too hard. When it comes to crunch time, there won´t be enough men to crunch anyone. In the end, it is women who determine who/what men are since they hold the keys to the kingdom--if you get my drift...

#4 is correct - men have been largely emasculated - Alan Alda has replaced John Wayne. But social trends usually go in cycles, so these castrating females will probably have a day of reckoning.

Very few things make me grind my teeth more - - than the use of the word "gender" instead of "sex."

"Gender" is a grammatical term - - and English is a language which doesn´t even have gender. Men and women are distinguished by their sex - - not by their "gender"!

I know lots of young people, not a single one of them is iffy about their gender. Yes some are gay, some are even transgendered but they all know what sex they are, what sex they prefer to have sex with and think any two people who love each other should be able to marry. The change that does concern me is the disconnect between marriage and child rearing. Young women are simply not considering delaying child bearing until they are married. Young men are readily admitting parentage but not considering marrying the mother of their child. This is not going to end well.

Acknowledging the legitimacy of humans being created male and female is not stereotyping. It´s sanity.

Those promoting the further blurring of the sexes ought to have as their slogan, "Rebel against Reality!"

I have neighbors who are lesbians. They have a daystar and twin 3 yr. old boys. Lately they have been bragging to everyone in the neighborhood that one of the twins wants a pink bike. And now he has one. You can´t tell me this phenomenon (homosexuality and transgender) isn´t caused, in large part, by social influences.

This is an example of how we let university-led studies define us. I´m mid-sixties, and female, when my friends and I were growing up we didn´t let the typical female/male roles stand in the way we wanted to be or what we wanted to do. It´s called being independent.

Reporter’s Case Poses Dilemma

On Dec. 31, 2005, the C.I.A.’s acting general counsel, John A. Rizzo, received an urgent phone call from the White House about a chapter in James Risen’s coming book, “State of War,” detailing a botched C.I.A. operation in Iran. The administration wanted Mr. Rizzo to contact Sumner Redstone — the chairman of Viacom, owner of the book’s publisher, Simon & Schuster — and ask him to keep the book off the market. Mr. Rizzo never made the call. It was too late. Copies of “State of War” had already reached bookstores. The Bush administration soon identified the man it believed

Mayfield´s death ´puts an

Clarion-Ledger (Jackson MS), by Sam R. Hall    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 6/27/2014 11:08:55 PM     Post Reply
Mark Mayfield´s death is tragic in and of itself, but it also provides a sobering, painful and chilling reminder that the race for U.S. Senate from Mississippi went far off the rails. I talked with Pat Bruce, president of the Madison County Conservative Coalition, minutes after the news broke. She answered the phone between sobs, understandably in shock. As we talked, she oscillated between hurt and anger and disbelief. Then there were moments of lucidity, when none of it — the entire race, much less Mayfield´s death — amounted to anything approaching the seriousness that led to today´s tragic news.

WASHINGTON — The U.S. has armed drones flying over Baghdad to protect U.S. troops that recently arrived to assess Iraq’s deteriorating security, the Pentagon said Friday. The military for more than a week has been flying manned and unmanned aircraft over Iraq, averaging a few dozen sorties daily for reconnaissance. The decision to arm some of the drones follows the deployment to Baghdad of troops who will advise and assist Iraqi counterterrorism forces. “The reason that some of those aircraft are armed is primarily for force protection reasons now that we have introduced into the country some military advisers whose

Obama’s new boogeyman: The press corps

MINNEAPOLIS – Move over, Republicans. President Obama has a new boogeyman: The media. During his two-day tour here, the president has let out his frustrations on the fourth estate for failing, in his view, to cover serious issues facing the American people and instead focusing on the frivolous. “If you watch the news, you’d think, ‘Okay, Washington is a mess and the basic attitude is that everybody’s crazy,” Obama told a crowd of 3,500 here at the Lake Harriet Band Shell. Noting that he met with a local resident to discuss her difficulties paying her bills, Obama said: “You don’t

The New York Times´s public editor on Friday responded to criticism about the paper´s coverage of the IRS scandal, admitting: "The Times was somewhat late in beginning to cover the latest development about the lost emails." An analysis by the Media Research Center´s Jeffrey Meyer on Thursday found that "in the past 6 months (183 days), the New York Times has published only 13 news items on the IRS’ targeting of Tea Party groups." Public editor Margaret Sullivan questioned David Joachim, the Times´s Washington-based reporter, on the scant coverage. He offered an equivalence that seemed dismissive of complaints: "One side

A Mexican military helicopter is shaking up the immigration debate. On Thursday, the chopper was conducting a drug-related operation and crossed the border into Arizona. Then – in U.S. airspace – it fired two shots at border patrol agents. KOVA News4 reports: The incident occurred west of the San Miguel Gate on the Tohono O’odham Indian Nation. The agents were unharmed. The helicopter went back into Mexico. Mexico then contacted U.S. authorities and apologized for the incident. While it’s fortunate that no one was injured or worse, the fact that something like this was even possible raises more “real time”

Things got a bit awkward for CNBC’s Squawk on the Street when one of the show’s co-hosts accidentally “outed” Apple CEO Tim Cook as being gay. New York Times columnist James R. Stewart joined the panel to discuss his latest piece profiling John Browne, the former CEO of BP, and his “tortured life” living as the gay chief executive of a Fortune 500 company. “You’d think CEOs especially are measured by objective criteria, financial performance,” Stewart said, and yet there’s a corporate culture that prevents powerful gay men from going public. “There are gay CEOs in major companies, and I

MINNEAPOLIS–President Obama says he’s been itching to “say what’s on my mind” about Republicans in Washington. And today on the banks of Lake Harriet he let loose, turning an official event on the economy into a rally for Democrats in the midterm campaign. “So far this year Republicans in Congress have blocked or voted down every single idea to strengthen the middle class,” Obama told a crowd of 3,500. “Don’t boo,” he quipped. “I want you to vote.” Obama accused Republicans of deliberate inaction, of being “tone deaf,” focusing more on elections and “media sound bites” than progress. “They don’t

WASHINGTON— President Barack Obama is sending his best wishes to Muslims in the U.S. and around the world on the start of the holy month of Ramadan (RAH´-mah-dahn). Obama says in a statement that the U.S. is grateful for Muslim-American organizations, individuals and businesses that work to reduce the income gap and poverty through charitable efforts and programs that provide education, skills and health care to students, workers and families. The Muslim holy month starts this weekend and is marked by daily fasting from dawn to sunset. It ends with the Islamic holiday of Eid al-Fitr (ayd ahl-FIH´-tur). Obama says he´s

Albert Spratte, the sergeant-at-arms of the National Border Patrol Council, Local 3307 in the Rio Grande Valley, said the Obama administration is largely to blame for waves of illegal immigrants that have been flooding the Southwest U.S. border since February, saying the government opened the door for the crisis by making it “clear they’re not going to deport people.” Spratte, who was speaking with CNSNews.com as a representative of the union, further said “we don’t have control of the border,” and if the Obama administration claims it is not in effect giving amnesty to the illegals, then “don’t believe them.”

New Yorkers to pay $4.9M legal fees

New York City’s newest budget includes enough money to pay the legal fees for about 1,380 illegal immigrants who are detained and facing deportation. Within the budget is a $4.9 million set-aside for the New York Immigrant Family Unity Project, a program that just wrapped a one-year test phase and was deemed a success by City Council, Breitbart reported. Under the program, taxpayers help cover the legal expenses for illegals in jail who should be deported, but are fighting it. The city’s renewal of the plan makes it the first jurisdiction in the nation with a tax-paid disbursement dedicated solely

With Iraq in danger of falling apart, new troubles on the Mexican border and other problems mounting up in Washington, President Obama on Thursday will try to the shift the narrative by reconnecting with average Americans. The president will travel to Minneapolis on Thursday and spend a day “in the shoes” of a mystery woman identified only as Rebekah. The woman, whose last name has yet to be revealed, recently wrote a letter to Mr. Obama, inspiring the president to visit her and learn more about her daily struggles.

Hillary Clinton has a “secret deal” with her top aide Huma Abedin to keep her troublesome husband Anthony Weiner out of the spotlight, sources tell Page Six, as the former secretary of state mulls a run for president. Clinton aides have insisted Weiner “stay out of public life for two years,” and that he “avoid causing any further embarrassment to Huma or Clinton,” according to our sources. The former sexting pol has been noticeably absent at recent public events attended by Abedin, including the Gordon Parks Foundation Awards Dinner in Manhattan earlier this month.

President Obama is now reaching terminal velocity, like a skydiver plunging toward earth. Except he doesn’t have a parachute. There’s a mighty splat coming soon. With his approval rating at 40 percent, down 6 points from early June, and just 29 percent of Americans convinced the country is on the “right track,” the president is doubling down on his strategy of blaming Republicans for his failures. And he’s shifting into hyperpartisan drive, traveling the country to campaign for Democrats, many of whom wish he’d just stay away. Worse, the news just keeps getting well, worse: The Veterans Affairs scandal is blazing, with

Lois Lerner, the controversial director of the tax-exempt organizations division at the Internal Revenue Service, has a long sordid history of targeting conservatives. Under the direction of Lois Lerner, the Federal Election Commission sued the Christian Coalition in the 1990s. She harassed the Christian Coalition for three election cycles. Eventually, she lost her case. At one point Lerner even asked a targeted conservative if Pat Robertson prayed over him. (Sound familiar?) In 1996, while at the FEC, Lois Lerner harassed Republican Senate candidate Al Salvi and made him this outrageous offer, “Promise me you will never run for office again, and

Ordinarily, President Obama’s days are planned out to the smallest detail. But for his two-day excursion to Minnesota this week, the president boasted that he’s got little in the way of a formal agenda, has few firm plans, and warned Secret Service that he’s feeling “super loose” and could end up doing any number of things. “I don’t know. I’m just going to make it up as I go along,” Mr. Obama said during a town-hall meeting at Minneapolis’ Minnehaha Park, one of the few planned activities during his two-day stay in the Twin Cities. “I’m like a caged bear,

Republicans are in the strongest position to win back the Senate since losing it eight years ago. Over several months, the party has expanded its range of targeted seats, and the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) has helped defeat insurgents it didn’t want representing the GOP in the midterm elections. This sober realization came to Democrats on Wednesday, as Tuesday night’s primary results showed they cannot count on Tea Party candidates upsetting more-electable incumbents. And Democrats are increasingly realizing that President Obama’s approval rating will probably remain mired at 45 percent or lower until

ALAN COLMES: You know it’s funny to me that conservatives talk about how much they love the constitution but when somebody exercises their constitutional rights they’re declared guilty when they’re not supposed to be. Simply because of the Fifth Amendment. Does invoking the Fifth Amendment indicate guilt?

Comparisons between Hillary Clinton and Mitt Romney have been greatly exaggerated, Hillary Clinton says. Clinton practically rolled with laughter when PBS’ Gwen Ifill noted humorlessly that her own husband has been “forced” to defend her recent comments about being “dead broke” after leaving the White House. What was humorous in that remarks is known only to Clinton. “I shouldn’t have said the, I think, five or so words that I said,” the former secretary of state said. “My inartful use of those five words doesn’t change who I am.” Later in the interview, Ifill asked if Clinton had become the Democratic adaptation of

A shocking new report from the Center for Immigration Studies claims to prove that every single new job created in America for the last fourteen years has gone to immigrants, legal and illegal. This would fly in the face of those who claim that immigration is an economic boon to native born Americans: The CIS report found that over the last 14 years, people who were born in the United States held 114.8 million jobs in 2000, and held 114.7 million jobs in 2014, a drop of 127,000.

It was the elephant on the back of the elephant in the middle of the room. In a recent interview with Rusty Humphries, Maricopa County, Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio made news by saying that the Obama administration was “incompetent” and that its current dumping of illegals in Arizona is intentional. Yet perhaps even more shocking was a 45-second segment of the interview that has received scant attention: A claim by Arpaio that he’s close to discovering who forged Barack Obama’s birth certificate. His comments were made between 9:59 and 10:44 in the interview and began as an explanation of why he
