A Gender Reversal On Career Aspirations?

10 Dec

The Pew Research Center reported in April that young women now top young men in valuing a high-paying career:

“Two-thirds (66%) of young women ages 18 to 34 rate career high on their list of life priorities, compared with 59% of young men. In 1997, 56% of young women and 58% of young men felt the same way.”

This is great, but will there be careers awaiting these women after graduating from college? If not, that pans out to a lot of dissatisfied women.

So the NRSC came through for Rep. Todd Akin after all

10 Dec

The congressmen responsible for the infamous “legitimate rape” remarks during the 2012 campaign against Claire McCaskill ended up benefiting from the Republican Party after their firing-squad like disavowal.

Late Thursday night, USA Today reported the NRSC “pumped $760,000 into the Show-Me State” in the closing days of the Senate contest.The NRSC money went to the Missouri Republican Party’s federal campaign committee in two installments of $360,000 and $400,000 each, on Nov. 1 and Nov. 2, USA Today reported:

The state party reported paying almost exactly that amount — $756,000 — to Strategic Media Placement, an Ohio firm that Akin had used to buy his TV ad time, on Oct. 30 and Nov. 1. The state party’s FEC report shows the funds were for “W. Todd Akin.”

Despite the last ditch effort, Sen. Claire McCaskill (D) managed to defeat him by nearly 16 points.

Women! Surrender to your femininity and let men surrender to theirs.

10 Dec

So I found this oped by Suzanne Venker of FOX News particularly amusing. Here are the best parts:

“It’s all so unfortunate – for women, not men. Feminism serves men very well: they can have sex at hello and even live with their girlfriends with no responsibilities whatsoever.

It’s the women who lose. Not only are they saddled with the consequences of sex, by dismissing male nature they’re forever seeking a balanced life. The fact is, women need men’s linear career goals – they need men to pick up the slack at the office – in order to live the balanced life they seek.

So if men today are slackers, and if they’re retreating from marriage en masse, women should look in the mirror and ask themselves what role they’ve played to bring about this transformation.

Fortunately, there is good news: women have the power to turn everything around. All they have to do is surrender to their nature – their femininity – and let men surrender to theirs.”

How much are you willing to share?

10 Dec

The Florida Department of Health sent out a survey asking women to share specifics about their sex life. The survey was sent to 4,000 randomly selected women. The survey is said to be geared toward finding out how Florida should reevaluate their family planning. Women were not pleased at the questions. The questionnaire is said to be invasive. The questions that are asked are very private questions so critics believe that most women wont even even tell the truth. My question to you all is how much are you willing to share for the advancement of  “women’s rights”
