Is The Equal Teammate The New Trophy Wife?

Posted in Gender Issues

Goodmenproject.com 1/10/2015

"...But this evolution, I feel, has also seen similar progress in the men’s camp. We see A-List celebrities like George Clooney marrying an incredibly successful woman after many thought he would be an eternal bachelor. At 53 years old, it was not a ‘trophy wife’ who settled down one of the world’s most eligible men, but a woman who rivals, and in some ways even surpasses his success. ..."

David L. Levy, Advocate For Joint Parental Custody Of Children, Dies At 78

Posted in Child Custody

Washingtonpost.com 1/8/2015

"...During the 1980s and 1990s, Mr. Levy testified more than 20 times before congressional committees on issues such as child support and visitation rights for non-custodial parents and the needs of children of divorce.

Some women’s rights advocates said he was in effect a champion of fathers’ rights in divorce proceedings. In 1991, Mr. Levy told Post columnist William Raspberry, “If there is divorce we need to make certain that both parents are in the picture. We talk about absent fathers when what we have in reality is forced-away fathers.”..."

Affirmative Consent Activists Seek To Expand Government Meddling In Your Private Life

Posted in Policy & Legislation

Libertyunyielding.com 1/7/2015

"...Now, they are back, seeking even more power over people’s private lives. Activists quoted in the Huffington Post now want to extend this “affirmative consent” ideology, and its pinched, misleading definition of “consent,” beyond college into K-12 schools, and beyond sexual activity to non-sexual touching and unwanted remarks, to teach people the sinister evil of things like “unsolicited hugs.”..."

Posted in Military

Latimes.com 1/7/2015

"... The military is perhaps America's last bastion of social and economic equality. The salaries of those at the top are much closer to those at the bottom, relative to the corporate world. Senior officers live on the same bases — in the same communities — as junior enlisted personnel, and their children go to school together. ..."
