Thousands of protesters hit streets across the US and begin to mass outside Clarence Thomas’ home | Daily Mail Online


The prospective law changes, released in a concurring opinion Friday’s decision by the justice, would see limits put on gay marriage, same-sex activity, and citizens’ access to birth control.

===========================================

 

With the overthrow of Roe v Wade the Supreme Court have made America no longer the ‘Land of the Free’, if it ever was.

You may argue that if women don’t wish to have babies, then they should not undertake actions in which they could become pregnant, but do they really have that choice in respect of RAPE and maybe incest. If men could be able to carry an unborn baby and then give birth, then maybe abortions may not be necessary, but in those instances a rapist would need to be caught in time.

As now women are not free to live their lives as they wish to and while the abolition of abortion rights is bad enough that may not be the last actions against freedoms from this Supreme Court. For now they could move onto birth control, same sex marriage, LGBTQ rights and many more, for religion and politics have no place in dealing with legalities, but Human Rights have.

Not only is it withdrawing human rights, but are, in effect, creating situations where the health of women will be of grave risk and could be a cause of their deaths.

To do so the Supreme Court will, in many respects, be equal to the Taliban and other Islamic zealots, for Christian zealots are just as bad as Islamic zealots, if not more so.

The Supreme Court are, in effect, abusing women by withdrawing their rights, for now there is no equality in America.

Toilet provision for men and women: call for evidence – GOV.UK


I welcome this consultation for currently I am unaware of any public toilets where I live in Sheffield, except those in some large stores, who are closed due to the lockdown, although there toilets in supermarkets, which in some areas are few and far between, especially in city centres.

Hoping this consultation will change the trend for many years, where public toilets have been closed. Was this down to finance and if so, was this due to the 10 years of austerity cuts imposed on Local Authorities by the past Conservative Governments?

We do have some Changing Places toilets, but again there is an insufficiency, which needs to be rectified.

Iain Mansfield: To bring greater fairness to families, free childcare should be linked to the transferable tax allowance | Conservative Home


There is a profound unfairness in the way the state supports families with pre-school children. Whilst significant support is rightly offered, in the form of tax-free childcare and 30 hours of free childcare a week, to couples in which both parents work, nothing is offered to families in which one parent chooses to remain at home, caring full time for their children. This is not only deeply unjust, but it utterly undervalues the important work done by those – often, but by no means exclusively, women – who make this choice.

Many people argue that the Government should not impose one form of lifestyle upon families. But the status quo, by embedding such a large disparity in support, does precisely this: it strongly encourages a family in which both parents work and discourages the equally valid choice in which one parent chooses to look after their own children.  All subsidies distort choices, and at over £5,500 a year – about a fifth of the median household income – the level of disparity is of a scale to fundamentally distort the choices and options available to most families.

In reality, every family is different. In some families, it is absolutely right for them that both parents go back to work. In others it may be better, both for the parents and for the well-being of the children, if one parent – whether they are a man or a woman – stays at home to look after those children. It all depends on both the talents and inclination of the parents and the nature and needs of the children concerned. In an ideal society, each family would be able to make that choice depending on what was best for them and their children; however, under our current system, only the former is given support. This means that many parents are forced back to work as the only affordable option, even if when that is neither economically efficient nor what they wish to do. Increasingly, caring for one’s own children is becoming a luxury available only to those that have at least one high-earning parent.

So a drive to get more women into top jobs will be led by a man. How insulting | Sophie Walker | Opinion | The Guardian


The appointment of Sir Philip Hampton perpetuates the myth that women don’t make good business leaders – and is a huge lost opportunity

Are men dying needlessly because we don’t make all over-50s have prostate tests? | Daily Mail Online


The UK National Screening Committee recently decided against screening men for prostate cancer. But were they right? We speak to two experts with VERY different views.

Beauty is relative.


Beauty is in deed relative and who should it concern or not concern.

Beauty is relative to an individual and should be looked at positively as we are all beautiful.

If a negative view is held, why mention it, as this will most likely place a negative view with the individual, which is not beneficial to anyone.

FEMspiration

Graphic designers from 18 different countries took this photo of a woman and photo-shopped it so that she represents the “perfect woman” in their respective country. See all the different versions here.

This perfectly shows how beauty standards and ideals vary drastically across countries and cultures. With that, body shaming comments actually have no ground. What is considered beautiful in one country might not be in another and vice versa. So, next time think twice, keep negative comments to yourself. Beauty is relative, in the end we are all beautiful if we only want to.

I’d be curious what the same experiment looked like for men. By now we should have realised that body consciousness isn’t only a women’s issue but men struggle being confronted with beauty ideals as well. I talked a little about that in an article about the “The Perfect Man” underwear commercial.

Prostate Cancer Kills: Everything A Man Should Know


Great advice and information, recommended reading for all males

Madamsabi's Blog

In the last twenty years, the number of young men diagnosed with prostate cancer has increased by over six times. Although in times past, prostate cancer affects mostly older men in their 70’s and 80’s of which the cancer grows slowly in them.

Older men who were found to have early-stage prostate cancer usually die from other non-cancer related causes.

It’s quite different for the younger men because attention is paid to the older folk as they are more likely to be diagnosed with the disease and as such prostate cancer is more aggressive and extremely dangerous in this group of young men due to self-negligence in going for prostate-specific-antigen, PSA and rectal exams until the recommended age of fifty-years.

This unconscious act makes the prostate cancer more aggressive when it is finally diagnosed in men younger than fifty-five-years because the cancer would have already progressed to a late-stage and is…
