Main / Women's Studies in Ontario Highschools

From Article:

"The project was recently endorsed by the Ontario Secondary Teachers Association and representatives of the Miss G_ Project have been in contact with MPP Gerrard Kennedy, who is the Ontario Minister of Education. "

"We want to draw attention to the Ministry that there is a need and demand for this course, which is why we're holding the demonstration," Mohan said. "We're hoping to have people come out in the thousands."

"Of course, men have a huge stake in this," Mohan said. "They have girlfriends, mothers, sisters, so obviously this is a big issue for them.

"One individual wrote on a postcard that he wanted women's studies in high schools because he was tired of seeing fear in the faces of the women he loved."

I did a search on the forum and couldn't find this posted anywhere.  Living in Canada this ticks me off.  The last thing I want to see is my 14 year old brother going to school with girls his age who are enrolled in courses like this.  

Feminists tried this back in the 60's and failed.  So they went to college and pitched it there. A way for young women to learn about influential women in politics, business, etc.  Seemed pretty harmless until they got in and showed their true colors.

I think that is what is going to happen here if the Minister of Education in Ontario is seriously considering this.  Of course no mention of implementing an optional elective for boys about 'men's studies" or something.

What's next.  Women's studies in middle school then elementary school??!

New poll on one of the major news networks in canada.  

The questions is the same as the subject heading of this thread.  So far "no" is slightly ahead but it is neck and neck.

All emails sent to ctv today regarding this poll will be looked at and some of them read on the news tonight.

Main / Moosehead pulls 'sexist' beer ad
Feb 17, 2006, 03:57 PM
http://www.canada.com/topics/finance/story.html?id=9c3f4c58-c422-4b10-8652-7feb9fac10a4&k=7028


Quotes:

""It's offensive," said Rosella Melanson, executive director of the New Brunswick Advisory Council on the Status of Women. "It's saying women should not be listened to.""

" New Brunswick's Moosehead Breweries has pulled an ad that implied women should speak no more than 50 words a day.

The action follows complaints from a feminist group and incensed customers."

______________________


I personally never saw the ad.  I'm of the opinion if you don't like what your watching then just flip the channel but that's just me.

I was at the supermarket the other day and picked up a copy of Newsweek. The cover caught my attention.  Inside is a 4 page article that I thought was well done.  I would encourage others to go pick up a copy or head to the library to check it out.

http://www.cbc.ca/story/canada/national/2005/11/04/protectionorders-051104.html

" The amended Domestic Violence and Stalking Act now extends to those who are only dating."

"Protection orders are also easier to get, sometimes even over the telephone and can oblige an offender to get counselling."

"There has been a recent U.S. study from Harvard University that indicates that one in five girls have suffered physical or sexual dating violence."

So theoretically a women can be dumped by her boyfriend of three months.  Get real pissed off and make a PHONE CALL and try to get some revenge by ruining the guys life.

That is a current question over at site where you just post questions and people answer them.  These types of questions about gender usually garner quite a response.

I said my bit.  Not sure if you have to register to view it.  Worth a look.

Looks like this Joseph character has it in for books about the glass ceiling myth as well.  Here is "his" review (the very first one at the top of the list mind you) about Warren Farrell's book.
_________________________________________________________

This book is not healthy. The writer WARREN FARRELL was interviewed in Penthouse, December 1977, for his study "Incest: The Last Taboo" by Penthouse author Philip Nobile and Farrel wrote "When I get my most glowing positive cases, 6 out of 200," says Farrell, "the incest is part of the family's open, sensual style of life, wherein sex is an outgrowth of warmth and affection. It is more likely that the father has good sex with his wife, and his wife is likely to know and approve -- and in one or two cases to join in." This book is bad, the author needs help. A person who at the time wrote glowingly of incest should not be trusted to write on "relationships" as it is impossible to molest children and really understand anything having to do with gender issues.

My guess its some female radical feminist going around demonizing anything to do with outing feminist group think.

Main / "used guys"
Aug 31, 2005, 12:10 PM
http://www.comingsoon.net/news/topnews.php?id=11030

"Jim Carrey is in early talks to team with Ben Stiller and play obsolete pleasure clones in Used Guys a comedy to be directed by Jay Roach (Meet the Fockers) for 20th Century Fox. Variety reports that the plan is to shoot next spring.

Written by David Guion and Michael Handelman from an original script by Mickey Birnbaum, the futuristic Used Guys is set in a world where women run the Earth. Men became extinct because they ingested an enhancement drink that proved fatal.

Carrey and Stiller will play clones rendered obsolete by superior models whose enhancements include better listening and lovemaking skills. The scorned clones make a run for it, bent on regaining their dignity by searching for a male nirvana known as Mantopia.

Used Guys would mark the first onscreen star pairing of Carrey and Stiller, though the latter directed Carrey in The Cable Guy. It will also be Carrey's first film with Roach."

"Yet another example of the free speech values of radical/gender feminists. I guess if you have to perpetuate lies that you can't defend, free speech isn't such a good thing to have."

Well, this particular forum isn't geared directly towards gender issues.  Its just another forum where these types of issues come up every now and again.  It isn't a feminist forum, run by feminist who are trying to squash free speech by any means.

Now that I think of it, your right it is a forum where you must register first.  That's too bad you can't check it out.

I finally got around to posting some links about DV and that one great link to the 300 studies that come to the conclusion that violence in the home is committed equally by men and women.

Also posted a rather long one about the wage gap as well. Have had two posters already PM asking for more information. How they "have never thought to think about it that way," in regards to taking into consideration job experience, hours worked per week, consecutive years in the work force, etc.

One person at a time.

Seems that after a rather disgusting blanket statement from the obvisouly chemically imbalanced OP most of the people there seem to understand the situation.

To lazy to respond to this little gem on the first page

"4) And yes, though all of you may not want to realize it, or even admit it, more men hit out of anger than women. Men are more likely to be perpetrators of domestic violence. "

The majority of posters haven't been taken in by the propaganda.  :)

It was rather encouraging i must say.

Thanks!

To find out who Mr. Griffin is I advise you to tune into Fox on Sunday evenings and watch "Family Guy".   8)
