I can understand how someone, even a man, would cry in an emotional situation.

But just imagine if Justice Kagan behaved in such a way. She wouldn’t be a Justice.

Single men talk about women as objects to be tricked into sex with them. As trophies.

Married men talk about their wives as burdens on them limiting their lives.

Fathers talk about their daughters and possessions that can be tainted.

All men recoil in disgust at the thought of menstruation or natural body hair on a woman.

The only real conclusion is that men don’t like women and don’t think of them as people.

Prove me wrong.

Men might like women individually…. But sometimes I wonder how they feel about us as a whole.

Will adding more women to Border Patrol help the agency shed its reputation for violence?

  • In April, Carla Provost — who’d been sworn in as deputy chief of U.S. Border Patrol just five months earlier — became the agency’s acting chief, making her the first woman ever to hold the position.
  • At an event Tuesday honoring the 42nd anniversary of women joining the agency, Provost had a message for the women in attendance: There is no better time to be a woman on the force, but there are still far too few of them.
  • “We have to do a better job,” she said, according to the New York Times.

  • “Integrating women into this organization doesn’t change the fact that its policies negatively impact the lives of women across the world. It simply means women will participate in that process,” Kim Tran, the executive publisher at Third Woman Press: Queer and Feminist of Color Publishing, told Mic via email Friday. “That’s the limit of reforming a body with this specific goal.” Read more.

Women beer drinkers finally get the Beer for Her they never asked for

  • Put down your man beers, ladies: Aurosa Beer for Her is here — because apparently all those other beers were “for him.”
  • What does it mean for a beer to be “for her”? According to the website: “Aurosa is a representation of a woman’s strength and a girl’s tenderness. The two contrasting tempers, present in the female essence, are depicted through the elegant design yet the strong, unfiltered taste. Aurosa was born to prove that women can succeed anywhere without having to adapt and sacrifice their natural femininity. Women have been disregarded in the beer industry but owing to determination and faith in herself, Aurosa is set to redefine the perception of beer.”
  • The brainchild of Martina Šmírová, Aurosa is a semi-dark lager that comes packaged in a shapely imitation marble bottle — pleasing to the feminine eye! Read more. (7/22/17, 11:18 AM)
