It is easy even for most politicians just to read what the title says and believe that all must be okay. After all, Istanbul Convention Action against violence against women and domestic violence must be good for society, right? Well, it would be if the content of the convention echoed the title and kept to Read more…

German journalist Gunnar Schupelius has organised a ‘March for Life’ parade every year for some years now. As a journalist he occasionally writes about the need for nations to be at peace, and for dialog over violence at all times. So it is perhaps not too surprising that he has been targeted by feminists for Read more…
Nur acht Prozent der Deutschen ordnen sich dem feministischen Lager zu. Diese acht Prozent sind aber so gut verankert in Leitmedien, Politik und dem akademischen Sektor, dass sie die Geschlechterdebatte beherrschen – mit allen Nachteilen, die eine solche Alleinherrschaft mit sich bringt: So werden feministische Behauptungen nicht hinterfragt, sondern einer schreibt sie unkritisch vom anderen ab. Stellt jemand diese Behauptungen ausnahmsweise doch in Frage, wird er als “antifeministisch” und damit “rechts” abgeurteilt.

One of the problems is that no country wants to be first. Whichever country first makes cutting up a little lad’s genitals illegal in clear and unambiguous terms is going to come under fire, even if all it is doing is bringing in laws that make the situation with little girls equal, or as equal as the differences can make it.
Already, courts around the world are having to go into the most obvious contradictions in order to judge violating boys different than for girls as a crime. This means that even the protection of girls is threatened as courts must decide whether to give boys equal protection to girls, or give parents the same rights over their daughters as for their sons.
The police crime statistics recorded for the whole of Germany in 2018 show slightly more than 611,000 male and just over 414,000 female victims.
But the main media ignore these figures and instead consistently reduce the problem to “violence against women”. Thanks to the Greens, women now receive a taxi voucher in Munich, while the far greater number of male victims (who are still expected to pay a woman’s costs on a date) once again run out of money.
The new video-on-demand service “Apple Tv Plus” has just launched the first four self-produced series. Apparently, the topics “girl power” and “gender equality” are worked in, rather unfittingly. “Intentionally pressed in”, judges the Youtube channel “Serienflash” (in German). Genderama, German blog
The German paper De Welt (The World) reports on a survey of salaries of Germany’s top 30 companies trading on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange (the DAX market).
From this, we see that if men earn more than women, that’s discrimination. But when women earn more than men “the gender pay gap is closed”.
Why the lists exist Companies are using the beliefs of individuals to encourage, make, or enforce, social changes. The best companies have always had a charitable side to them and this has often worked to society’s benefit. What has been happening lately is not very charitable, however. Companies, particularly the global ones, are setting agendas Read more…
The new Shell Youth Study, which says that today’s youth are more traditional in their ideas about work and parenting than “politics sometimes want them to be”.
