Menopausal killer-whale grandmothers vital for survival of the species

Killer whales have been found to share “the grandmother effect” that humans experience – where menopausal grandmothers have a significantly beneficial effect on the reproductive success of her children and the survival of her grandchildren.

The grandmother effect is thought to explain why mammals continue to live a long time after becoming infertile.

No sex, no babies: South Korea’s emerging feminists reject marriage

No dating, no sex, no marriage and no babies: two South Korean YouTubers who vow to stay single have caused uproar in the east Asian nation as it battles the world’s lowest fertility rate.

Jung and Baeck believe marriage entrenches old-fashioned gender roles, with South Korean women spending four times longer on unpaid care – cleaning, cooking and looking after children or elderly parents – than their husbands, according to UN data.

“The current government’s initiatives are not designed for women – it is for men,” said Jung. “They need women who can have babies, so the policy will repeat this vicious cycle.”

Generation X women are screaming in silence

We thought we could have both thriving careers and rich home lives and make more and achieve more than our parents, but most of us have gained little if any advantage.

Gen Xers entered life with “having it all” not as a bright new option but as a mandatory social condition.

Put simply: having more options has not necessarily led to greater happiness or satisfaction. “By many objective measures, the lives of women in the United States have improved over the past 35 years,” the authors of an analysis of Census-style data wrote a decade ago as Generation X entered middle age. “Yet we show that measures of subjective wellbeing indicate that women’s happiness has declined both absolutely and relative to men.”

In 2017, another major study found that the two biggest stressors for women were work and children, with a compounding effect on those contending with both. We bear financial responsibilities that men had in the old days, but are also saddled with traditional caregiving duties.

‘It’s Not Fair’: Idaho Lawmaker to Introduce Bill Barring Biological Males From Girls Sports

Idaho state Rep. Barbara Ehardt plans to introduce legislation ensuring girls aren’t forced to compete against biologically male athletes.

“Boys and men will not be able to take the place of girls and women in sports because it’s not fair. We cannot physically compete against boys and men,” Ehardt told East Idaho News on Monday.

“The inherent biological, scientific advantages that boys and men have over girls and women, even if they were to take hormones, even if they were to spend a couple of years on estrogen, that’s not going to replace the inherent biological advantages that boys and men have,” she added.

Ehardt’s view is backed up by scientific research on the subject, which shows that biologically male athletes who identify as transgender retain physiological advantages over female athletes, even after undergoing hormone therapy.

Other bills meant to protect female athletes from being forced to compete against biological males are in the works in New Hampshire, Washington, Georgia, Tennessee, and Missouri, The Wall Street Journal previously reported.

India’s First Female Superhero Takes On Sex Trafficking

She is India’s first woman comic book superhero, eschewing tights for a sari or salwar-kameez and confidently sitting astride a large Bengal tiger. She also happens to be a gang-rape survivor, who turns her trauma into a superpower.
The character of Priya is path-breaking in many ways. She starts her journey as a simple Indian village girl and goes on to fight the demons of rape, acid attacks, and, most recently, teenage sex-trafficking across three critically acclaimed graphic novels. But if you’re expecting Kali-inspired beheadings and gory vengeance sequences, you might be disappointed.

The plots of the three books all possess one critical layer of nuance: they refuse to settle into the good vs. evil dichotomy of most other superhero stories. Priya’s modus operandi is different in that she not only strikes down the bad guys, but also acknowledges the sociocultural system that creates them.

I Am No Less of a Woman: Charlie Evans Interview

Charlie Evans is founder of the Detransition Advocacy Network. A registered charity, the Network is one of the first organisations set up by and for the detrans community. Following the launch of the Detransition Advocacy Network’s telephone counselling service, team AfterEllen spoke to Charlie about her work.

“It’s still something I battle with. But I think it was coming to the realization that feeling like there’s something wrong with my body doesn’t mean there is something wrong with my body, it means there’s something wrong with the way I see it.”

Drug giants scent gold in those transgender teens

So transgender teens are now buying hormone-altering drugs online. The NHS injects children wanting to swap their gender with the puberty blocker Gonapeptyl, costing taxpayers £82 per dose. One of its many side effects, apart from causing depression, vaginal bleeding, vomiting, hair loss, and emotional instability, is that it desensitises the pituitary gland. You can buy it online for £110.50.

Lucy Griffin, consultant psychiatrist at Bristol Royal Infirmary, has warned that doctors know very little about the long-term effects of medicines designed to delay the onset of puberty and that there is a risk of osteoporosis, permanent infertility or impaired sexual function.

Not surprisingly, pharmaceutical companies in the US are contributing millions of dollars to LGBT causes. In the two-year period of 2015-2016, institutional funding for LGBTI issues globally totalled approximately $524million, a $100million increase from 2013-14. Funding specifically focused on transgender communities totalled $26.1 million.

. . . Big Pharma such as Janssen Therapeutics, the health foundation of a Johnson and Johnson founder, Viiv, Pfizer, Abbott Laboratories, Bristol-Myers Squibb Company, and Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals, are pouring big money into the transgender project.

Semen: Men’s Chemical War Against Women.

To be a human male is to have a Y-chromosome in nearly every single one of your 70 trillion cells, with those Y-chromosomes orchestrating the production of sperm, semen and testosterone. Men are born to produce semen – which wars against women. Men are born to produce testosterone – which wars against women. Men are born to war against women. Men are primordially a war against women, a biological war against women.

How is it that the Y chromosome – the most mutated, decrepit part of the human genome, currently in a less-than-3%-left condition — has every poli-social advantage at its disposal to assure its survival and perpetuation? Because dudes sure as shit have their assess covered.

The problem with males is biology. Feminist-leaning women fail to spend what would be far-more-productive brain-time deliberating on this fact: Being a human male is a genetic condition, a genetic condition wielding a proprietary biochemistry, a proprietary biochemistry for warmongering against females – and every other fucking thing.

The Billionaires Behind the LGBT Movement

Prior to 2015, Stryker had already built the political infrastructure to drive gender identity ideology and transgenderism across the globe, donating millions to small and large entities. These included hundreds of thousands of dollars to ILGA, an LGBT organization for equality in Europe and Central Asia with 54 countries participating, and Transgender Europe, a voice for the trans community in Europe and Asia with 43 countries participating (Transgender Europe has also funded smaller organizations like TENI, Transgender Equality Network Ireland).

With the Yogyakarta Principles, the seeds were planted to bring in and attach gender-identity ideology to our legal structures.

Arcus created MAP, the LGBT Movement Advancement Project, to track the complex system of advocacy and funding that would promote gender identity/transgenderism in the culture. Simultaneously, the LGBTI Core Group was formed as an informal cross-regional group of United Nations member countries to represent LGBTI human rights issues to the U.N. Core Group members funded by Arcus include Outright Action International and Human Rights Commission. Core Group member countries include Albania, Australia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Croatia, El Salvador, France, Germany, Israel, Italy, Japan, Montenegro, Mexico, New Zealand, Norway, Spain, the United Kingdom, the United States, Uruguay, and the European Union, as well as the Office of the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights.

These programs and initiatives advance gender identity ideology by supporting various faith organizations, sports and cultural associations, police department training and educational programs in grade schools, high schools (GLSEN, whose founder was brought to Arcus in 2012 as board of directors, has influenced many K-12 school curricula), and universities and medical institutions—including the American Psychological Foundation (APF).

As the example of the Arcus Foundation shows, the LGB civil rights movement of yore has morphed into a relentless behemoth, one that has strong ties to the medical industrial complex and global corporatists. The pharmaceutical lobby is the largest lobbying entity in Congress. Although activists present the LGBT movement as a weak, powerless group suffering oppression and discrimination, in truth it wields enormous power and influence—power it increasingly uses to remake our laws, schools, and society.
