What lessons should we learn from the false rape accusations made against the Duke lacrosse players?Favourite answer:
The lesson is that colleges and others shouldn’t presume guilt based upon unproven accusations. Guilt should only be presumed when an objective jury has carefully considered all the relevant evidence. Similarly, we are supposed to practice innocent until proven guilty, but that is often thrown out the window when it comes to allegations of sexual assault.
In this case, the evidence exonerating them was conclusive. ATM video footage proved they were elsewhere when the crime allegedly took place. It later came out the false charges were made by the accuser because she was in danger of losing custody of her child and believed if she was seen as a victim she would retain custody.20 AnswersGender & Women's Studies3 days ago

This is one of the tragedies of the loss of Yahoo Answers. We have a degree of anonymity here. This means people who post politically incorrect views can do so with fewer consequences.
On many forms of social media (eg Facebook) posting politically incorrect material can lead to consequences in your personal life. But today's politically incorrect material maybe tomorrow's truth.
No, they should not be cancelled. The prevailing politically correct view should be robust enough to withstand public criticism and divergent views.8 AnswersGender & Women's Studies1 day ago

"What is patriarchy theory?"
"The Patriarchy" is a feminist conspiracy theory that asserts that every society has been, and continues to function under GENDER rule with men essentially ruling over women as opposed to the reality which is that we have always been ruled under CLASS rule.
Feminists tend to see a "male power" in common, equal men with no such "power", just because it is mostly male leaders that are in power. But this would be like children thinking that all adults have the same authority as each other, and wondering why their own parents can't change the world properly to share that "power" with them (the children), and give them exactly what they want, when they want it. This simpleton concept also ignores the very reality that male leaders do not share power with anyone, especially other males. Men are competitive creatures.
Feminists insist that we still live under a patriarchy today in the first world, even though all adult women have the exact same set of legal Rights and opportunities as men do. Also, no man has any authority or dominion over any woman. A feminist defined "patriarchy" cannot exist in the West. It does not.
"The Patriarchy" as a concept was stolen from actual societies that have existed in the past, such as a rule by religious Patriarch as was the case in the Byzantine empire ... and somewhat (not exactly) like some of the Islamic Caliphates of today. But in our Western, representative democracies, to claim we live in any kind of Patriarchal rule of any type at all, is a fool's assertion.

- 72Upvotes of all answers to this questionFavourite answer:
I man can't know if a woman will later regret having sex and will later claim her consent wasn't valid. While this happens in the real world, it is most common at colleges as you mentioned.
1. Until this is changed, college men should not have sex with women at their own institution.
2. More men who are accused of sexual assault due to consent being withdrawn after the fact, need to hire lawyers and fight such cases, rather than just accept their fate. Only by colleges getting sued will this unreasonable practice get changed.
3. Just as women have #MeToo, men need to start publicly calling out women who consent to sex, but later claim it was sexual assault. The problem now is women are rewarded for this immoral behavior.31 AnswersGender & Women's Studies5 days ago

Is an extremely competitive person, even in futile things, insecure and suffers from low self-esteem?Favourite answer:
Yes, I've encountered people like that. The ego has grown to a pathological state - whereby they cannot stand the idea of anyone doing anything better than them, or before them. Definitely moving in to psychiatric disorder territory.
The couple of people I've met over the years who were that way inclined, were utterly disgusting weasels. Betraying people's trust in order to 'win' is nothing to them - so don't befriend them5 AnswersPsychology2 days ago

"What are some examples of systematic or institutional sexism in the U.S.?"
Systematic or Institutionalized sexism, otherwise known as legal discrimination, or state sanctioned discrimination, only occurs against men today in the US (and pretty much all Western nations). In the US, we have the selective service military obligation where all men must register or face legal restrictions on their Rights and benefits. Women are exempt from this entirely. Men also face affirmative action whereas women do not. There are many taxpayer funded "women's only" programs that are denied to men just because they are men. There is also restrictive wording against access for men in VAWA and Title IX. This is just a quick list.
Institutionalized sexism against women was dealt with pretty much entirely by the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Only the spotty toplesness laws that vary by state can be considered legal discrimination against women. For actual equality, it is time to give men the same protections against systemic sexism here as is afforded women. Equal Rights AND equal Responsibilities should be the mantra now.

My wife tells me that she simply sees them as lumps of flab. No different to a fat stomach. There is absolutely nothing sexual about them to her. In fact she confides that the idea of touching someone's is similar to how I would feel about touching a male. Quite revolted by the idea.10 AnswersGender & Women's Studies2 days ago

Hydrogen peroxide H2O2 kills nanoworms inside facemasks. The elite is faking that they took the real vaccine; the real vaccine will cause spiritual and physical damage. When will the official churches start praying for the false prophet? Orthodox Christian three hand signs are different than Buddhist mudras. Ecumenism = 263 heresies; each heresy leads to hell. Orthodoxy = the only true faith; Roman Catholics tried one cup - one spoon ritual and got sick with Bubonic plague; if heresy enters Orthodox monastery then monks/nuns will get sick with flu/tuberculosis (for instance); Orthodox churches who closed for COVID or had disposable cups/spoons or dipped spoon into alcohol are no longer brides of Christ (now they serve Satan and honor Satan's new COVID religion). Don’t go into UFO to be “healed” by evil demons; demons never do good. SSN is written as a barcode/QRcode; then it's put into a chip; chip is put into vaccine; chipped people are influenced (by super computers) to receive grey plastic card World Passport with no name on it (but when they stretch their hands to get it, gov't clerk presses secret button to administer the unforgivable green 666 tattoo by isotope rays). If you reject mark of the beast (by hiding within a 10-15 people group according to saints Gabriel Urgebadze and Seraphim of Sarov), then your direct ancestors go to heaven (according to saint Vyacheslav Krasheninnikov from Ural). First vaccine shuts off your immune system; second vaccine gives you diseases; third vaccine puts your immune system back and it will start fighting the diseases and will cause death. Saint Paisios from Mount Athos said that the devil wants to deceive the rich with freemasonry, poor with communism, and believers with ecumenism. Elpidios Vagianakis said that there will be seven “mark of the beast” vaccines; reject all of them! Documents are from Satan; burn all the documents that you can find. Electronics will be used to track you. Even old broken unplugged 1970 TV set will show the evil flying antichrist using Tesla's ether. Don’t go into UFO to be “healed” by evil demons; demons never do good; always pray the Jesus prayer or to saints who help right away (like saint Vyacheslav Krasheninnikov according to whom if you reject mark of the beast, then your direct ancestors go to heaven); forgive me.6 AnswersPsychology3 days ago

They are allowed. It's just that most either don't want it, or don't legitimately make it to the top, just like most men don't.
Jordan Peterson explains it very well. Those high powered, driven people (mostly men) who compete like crazy to keep other men out of the top positions aren't just gone to suddenly roll over because feminist suddenly expect women to take their positions. It doesn't work that way. But when women are treated equally harshly to men by the top men, feminists have the gall to call that "sexist" rather than equality.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eieVE-xFXuostarts at 3:2022 AnswersGender & Women's Studies5 days ago

My girlfriend will read something she considers sexist or offensive - even a joke that simply references periods - and she'll be pissed off for the rest of the day.
