Half of white women continue to vote Republican. What's wrong with them? | Moira Donegan | Opinion | The Guardian
But there is something else at play, something more complicated, in white women’s relationship to white patriarchy. White women’s identity places them in a curious position at the intersection of two vectors of privilege and oppression: they are granted structural power by their race, but excluded from it by their sex. In a political system where racism and sexism are both so deeply ingrained, white women must choose to be loyal to either the more powerful aspect of their identity, their race, or to the less powerful, their sex. Some Republican white women might lean into racism not only for racism’s sake, but also as a means of avoiding or denying the realities of how sexist oppression makes them vulnerable.

Are the women speaking up about sexual assault taking down celebrities or the patriarchy? / LGBTQ Nation
Within a patriarchal society that transmits distorted binary gender extremes, questions inevitably arise: How dare women demand their reproductive freedoms, which would reduce or even take away my (the male) making the decision whether to carry or abort my genetic offspring? How dare a woman choose not to marry a man? How dare women compete with me for a high social position?
How dare gay men think of coming onto me? How dare trans men take on the privileges by transitioning that I have “earned” from birth? How dare trans women relinquish male privilege and betray their gender (read as betray patriarchy itself)? How dare intersex people not choose to “become either one or the other”?
Toxic forms of hypermasculinity require the promotion and use of firearms to keep at bay the intensive psychosocial compulsive fear and dread of penetration from bullets, and by extension the gaze of gay and bisexual men, and the female gaze since patriarchy promises males the right to the aggressive outward intrusive gaze, the right of penetration of “others.” And when patriarchal social and family structures converge with patriarchal religious systems, which reinforce strictly defined gender hierarchies of male domination, women and girl’s oppression and oppression of those who transgress sexual-, sexuality-, and gender binaries and boundaries became inevitable.

Diskriminierung von Frauen: Immer wieder, bis sich etwas ändert - SPIEGEL ONLINE
[ Art can't be divided by sexes ] Kaum ein Mann orientiert sich gerne nach unten. An etwas Unterlegenem. An etwas, das nicht dem Maßstab, siehe oben, entspricht. Fast möchte ich denken, sicher, ich vergleiche mich ja auch nicht mit einem Border Collie, womöglich aus der Sorge, intellektuell schlechter abzuschneiden. Es ist so unendlich langweilig in jede Richtung. Für die denkenden Männer, sich immer anhören zu müssen, was für einer bornierten Spezies sie angehören, für die Weiblichen, die nicht Weißen, die nicht Heterosexuellen, permanent in jedem Detail darauf gestoßen zu werden, dass sie eben nicht der Norm entsprechen. Dass sie weniger wert sind, dass sie nicht genügen. Langweilig. Unmodern. Öde. Ich rede nicht von Bezahlung als Ausdruck der Gleichheit, sondern über Kunst, weil das sowieso keinen interessiert. Ich rede nicht über die 70 Prozent der Welt, in der Frauen in einer Art als Haustier behandelt werden, von der die meisten in Europa nichts ahnen.

Rooney Mara über die ungleiche Bezahlung in Hollywood - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Viele Schauspielerinnen verdienen weniger als ihre männlichen Co-Stars. Die Gage sei aber gar nicht das eigentliche Problem, findet Rooney Mara. Sondern die tiefe Verankerung sexistischer Motive. [...] Es solle ihrer Ansicht nach nicht darum gehen, dass Frauen weniger bezahlt bekommen, sondern um das Warum. "Das ist doch nur eine Begleiterscheinung einer viel größeren Sache." In der Filmindustrie ,aber auch darüber hinaus, werde eine bestimmte Sprache benutzt, um Frauen zu beschreiben - die man aber niemals für eine Mann benutzen würde. Das sei vor allem so, erklärt Mara, wenn es um meinungsstarke, selbstbeherrschte Frauen gehe.

Pando: Hot or Not founder responds to Nancy Jo Sales' new book: "I don’t think we invented human nature"
Nearly every tweet I’ve read about Nancy Jo Sales’ new book “American Girls: Social Media and the Secret Lives of Teenagers” has been some variation of “I’m scared to read this.” Indeed by page 20, I started making plans to move to an Amish village by the time my daughter turns 12. The deeper I read, the more I was impressed by many of the young women Sales interviewed, and the more sorry I felt that we've given them this world.  [...] Sales also describes how young girls worship Kim Kardashian and derive their self worth from how many likes they get on Instagram.

Film producer shares shocking intros for women in scripts - BBC Newsbeat
Jennifer Lawrence triggered a big debate on gender inequality and Hollywood sexism last October. She said she got mad at herself for failing to negotiate when she found out she was getting paid less than her male co-stars. The Hunger Games actress said there was "an element of wanting to be liked that influenced my decision to close the deal without a real fight". British actress Rachel Weisz told Newsbeat she thinks there's a difference between stories for male and female characters in cinema. "Women are actually not allowed to be difficult, interesting, complex, three-dimensional," she said. "Female characters have to be sweeter and more likeable than a male character would have to be." //&! bit.ly/1QfkFNB

Oscars und der Boykott schwarzer Künstler: Hollywoods wahres Problem - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Die Oscar-Academy ändert ihr Reglement: Künftig sollen nicht nur weiße Männer über 60 entscheiden, wer die Auszeichnung bekommt. Ein wichtiger Schritt. Doch Hollywoods Problem sitzt tiefer. [...] Eine echte Debatte über mangelnde Diversität in Hollywood muss sich also um die Frage drehen, wie viel Zugang ethnische Minderheiten zu Macht- und Prestige-Positionen innerhalb der amerikanischen Filmindustrie bekommen und wie sich auch dort, wo die Filme erdacht, in Auftrag gegeben und produziert werden, die Demographie der USA angemessen widerspiegelt. Die Oscars, die sich nun auf berechtigten Druck verändern wollen, sind tatsächlich nur Seismograph einer an ethnischer Hermetik und Verkrustung leidenden Branche.

Gucci Casts First Transgender Model, Transparent Star Hari Nef
I think the most important part here is ... being stealth vs being out: IMG had met with transgender models in the past but passed on signing them when it became apparent that they were not interested in doing jobs that brought attention to their gender identities. They wanted to be seen as models, not transgender models. Nef did not share their feelings. "Give me all those jobs," she told Bart. "I want to work." And thus, the realisation that being trans still matters to the media and the public at large. Meaning it is still a big deal. A deal big enough that IMG doesn't sign trans models that want to stay stealth, because then they would compete with all the other women in the women's pool ... nothing special about that. // via https://redd.it/41vfr5

Oscars head acts over lack of nominees' diversity - BBC News
Oscars head [...] taking action to "alter the make-up" of their membership, after Spike Lee and Jada Pinkett Smith's refusal to attend because of the mostly white nominees. Boone Isaacs praised the "wonderful work" of the nominees but said she was "heartbroken" at the lack of diversity. Lee said on Instagram he "cannot support" the "lily white" awards show. [...] Lee was appalled at "forty white actors in two years"being nominated [...] Jada Pinkett Smith: "Begging for acknowledgement... diminishes dignity and power" [...] Last year, there were similar calls to boycott the ceremony but Lee and Pinkett Smith are the first high-profile figures to carry out the threat. Neil Patrick Harris presented the show and the audience figures were down 16% to a six-year low. The hashtag "OscarsSoWhite" was heavily used after Thursday's announcement.

Taylor Swift an 'obnoxious Nazi Barbie', writes Camille Paglia | Music | The Guardian
Feminist writer says singer – with her ‘girl squad’ – perpetuates elitism and reminds her of ‘fascist blondes’ of her youth. Camille Paglia has written a scathing critique of Taylor Swift, referring to the singer as an “obnoxious Nazi Barbie” whose “twinkly persona is such a scary flashback to the fascist blondes who ruled the social scene during my youth”. Paglia, known for seminal feminist works such as Sexual Personae, criticised the singer for perpetuating elitism and undermining female empowerment by surrounding herself with a group of girls who were simply “performance props”. Swift is known as the ringleader of a sisterhood of actors, models and singers, such as Selena Gomez, Lena Dunham, Cara Delevingne and Karlie Kloss, who Swift often refers to as her “girl squad”. Many joined the singer on stage during her tour for her latest album, 1989. Paglia, 68, condemned this as “exhibitionist overkill” by the singer.

Is Escorting the New Feature Dancing? « MikeSouth.Com
like every other girl who comes into porn, she wanted fame, attention and the money but she quickly realized that the business wasn’t what she thought. She had one of the best agents and she had a good work ethic, she drew top dollar bookings for the best companies. Despite this she got Chlamydia twice and Gonorrhea once in the first six weeks she was in the business. She thought, like many that the two week test cycle would protect her but she quickly realized that “with so many people working together all the time STDs stay in the talent pool” She didn’t like most of the male performers she was working with and she quickly had second thoughts. [...] Today it’s less than ten percent who dont escort and that includes the guys. Some people say that is why the STD rates are high and most performers tell me that is true because so many of the porn girls and guys who escort will do it bareback.

I've been viciously attacked for daring to start a women's tech site | Media Network | The Guardian
So yes, my site has ‘feminine’ branding. Yes, we cover fashion and beauty as well as phones and drones. And that is entirely deliberate. It’s okay to be a woman who likes tech. It’s also OK to not like clothes and makeup. But many people seem to believe that to achieve equality, we all have to pretend we’re genderless, faceless ‘users’, and that doesn’t help anyone. Acceptance isn’t about ditching who you are to fit in with the crowd. It’s about the crowd recognising that you have differences and welcoming them.

New Statesman cover on childless female politicians provokes heated online debate | Politics | The National
The article won praise too though for highlighting the discrepancy between the proportions of male and female MPs who are parents, [...] 45 per cent of female MPs were childless, compared with 28 per cent of men. Helen Lewis, deputy editor of the New Statesman, who wrote the piece, urged people to read it before criticising, while pointing out that it analysed why both motherhood and childlessness caused problems for women in politics. [...] The analysis was published the week after a row erupted when the Labour MP Helen Goodman wrote in a blog that she was backing Yvette Cooper for leader because she was a mother. // [ Cheap shots.

He had different ideas for AMAs, he didn’t like Victoria’s role, and decided to fire her. Pao wasn’t able to do anything about it. In this case it shouldn’t have traveled upstream to her, it came from above her. Then when the hate-train started up against Pao, Alexis should have been out front and center saying very clearly “Ellen Pao did not make this decision, I did.” Instead, he just sat back and let her take the heat. That’s a stunning lack of leadership and an incredibly shitty thing to do. I actually asked that he be on the board when I joined; I used to respect Alexis Ohanian.

Lange Beine, schlanke Taille, feines Gesicht - Frauen mit Modelmaßen verdienen mehr als Frauen mit Rubens-Figur. Eine Studie zeigt: Als die attraktivsten Mitarbeiter gelten ausgerechnet Beamte. [...] Auch für Männer gelten Schönheitsideale, aber andere als bei Frauen: Während flotte Kellnerinnen, TV-Moderatorinnen oder Verkäuferinnen mit steigendem Gewicht immer mehr Gehalt verlieren, steigt bei Männern mit dem Gewicht der Lohn. Besonders bei Männern in der Produktion. "Untergewichtige Männer verdienen bis zu acht Prozent weniger als normal- oder übergewichtige Kollegen", so Wirtschaftsforscher Marco Caliendo von der Universität Potsdam. Gemeinsam mit einem Kollegen von der City University New York wertete er 18.000 Daten aus der sogenannten Allbus-Studie aus.

DSK and Dodo the Pimp: Sex and power in France - Newsnight - YouTube
complicit and impunity - see same in UK with abuse scandals and paedophiles up and down Britain's Society and especially Westminster - and Met Police looking away during recent history till back then during Thatcher's time and maybe even way back even more. What a picture of society and what it means in a persons life to have "power." And also include the Church! Sure, back then paedophiles, rapists and abusers of any kind often got away with it more or less because of the stigma as victim (you brought this on you) and the lack (non existent) of prosecution and support. Dark ages. Dark ages. That is recent history. Just one generation. Thinking about it is abhorring - that these people still shape our life's to some extent.

'I threw up twice': Rita Ora on her Oscars ordeal, the X Factor and new music - BBC News
[ difficult path to travel on, on the one - a nearly topless cover photo for our new album vs just interviews without pictures ... you are pushed in co-opting with the male (white patriarchy) engineered misogynist machinery that calls the shots ] She's thrilled that fellow pop star Ariana Grande wrote an open letter demanding that women be valued for their accomplishments instead of "who they're dating / married to / attached to, having sex with (or not)." "It's good she wrote that," Ora enthuses. "I feel like I should have done it too but, for some reason, I kept it to myself. I guess that's one of the reasons why Ariana felt she had to do it. "It made me think 'do you know what? I'm going to speak out about that too, because I suffer from it as well.'" Accordingly, the big theme of Ora's album "female empowerment and sticking together". "People will be like, 'Wow, she actually spoke about that.' "I want it to have a meaning." // &! bit.ly/1GR3xU7 "how we look or our age"

I honestly can’t decide if this is progress or the opposite | PandoDaily
 But we still — unfortunately– live in a world where aggressive women are called “bitches.” Opinionated women are called “harpies.” And female founder who may scream at a team who misses a deadline isn’t considered “passionate” or “intense,” she’s considered “hysterical” or worse– on her period. [...] But until the rest of tech comes to respect the complexity and strength of women leaders, let’s not just hand people the cliches, OK? A nice wine and cheese is always an option.

£3m sex discrimination case winner: 'Everybody loses' - BBC News
So after three-and-a-half years of legal battles and millions in legal bills, has it been worth it? She shoots back an answer: "Of course it wasn't worth it, people who think you come out of court as a victor - that's just not true. "Everyone loses out," she says. "What a waste of three years of my life, a waste of health, a waste of money."

Mansplaining the Ellen Pao trial & fixing the gender issue in venture capital | Calacanis.com
To understand why these VC firms are all male in many cases is to understand that they are not really businesses — they are partnerships. In my experience they operate more like social clubs, sports teams or, wait for it, fraternities. Because their business is not actually building something, but rather sitting around talking about which founders they should back to build something, the required skill is “getting along” and “shooting the shit” and “debating.” In a way, they’re more like debate clubs than corporations. That’s why they constantly go on retreats to try and bond and build trust with each other. [...] They want to build enough trust so that if they say no to Google or Facebook, they are able to keep functioning in the face of such a huge miss! [...] Changing this system will be very hard. Competing with it will be easier. &! youtu.be/Cm5QL2kEqzg - This Week in Start-ups Episode w Liz Gannes, Senior Editor of Re/code

Ellen Pao Says Gender Issues Won’t ‘Go Away’ After Kleiner Trial - WSJ
“You have this needle that you have to thread, and sometimes it feels like there’s no hole in the needle. From what I’ve heard from women, they do feel like there’s no way to win. They can’t be aggressive and get this opportunity without being treated like they’ve done something wrong.” [...] Ms. Pao, who was accused in her trial of being both too timid and too aggressive, said “women get criticized on both ends” of the spectrum when it comes to office demeanor. [...] she has removed salary negotiations from the hiring process because studies show women don’t fare as well as men. [ >>> Buffer and their transparency about salary/compensation <<< ]. [...] And she has passed on hiring candidates who don’t embrace her priority of building a gender-balanced and multiracial team.

‘I can’t think of a time when it was worse’: US abortion doctors speak out | World news | The Guardian
It is a time of heightened tension in Texas, following the passing of one of the most restrictive anti-abortion bills in the nation, made famous by Democrat Wendy Davis’s 11-hour filibuster against it in 2013. The Boyds have been warned by the FBI not to give media interviews because of fears for their safety. Over the years, they have had two arson attacks at their clinics, one in the 1980s and one in 2007, as well as countless death threats. But they have chosen to ignore the agency’s instructions, to highlight what they say is a roll back of women’s hard-won reproductive rights.

No skin thick enough: The daily harassment of women in the game industry | Polygon
the internet brings out the worst in people and society - because it is frictionless. wait 10 year and we hope we died 10 years ago. // ""You don’t really recover from this kind of abuse. You just change." She’s right. Often, I’ll see people lashing out at women they perceive as too bitchy or too confrontational. They don’t understand that we are the sum of our experiences. The toxic environment causes us to change. If people attack you online, you’re going to get defensive quickly. If people sexually harass you, you’re going to grow more inward, and more protective. It’s a very human reaction, and there is no way to face this daily reality without it changing who you are."

How Silicon Valley’s counterculture went corporate and ruined everything | PandoDaily
Politicians, entrepreneurs, artists, activists, hippies, and corporations all working together to make the world a better place? In 2015, that arrangement seems unthinkable. So where did the dream of tech-powered togetherness go wrong? [...] [...] // As of last November, the median rent for a one-bedroom apartment in San Francisco was $3,350 [£2200]. [...] So contrary to Gosney’s and Archer’s dream of a techno-utopia that benefits every slice of San Francisco’s population, the tech boom — along with various city statutes that limit residential housing — have made it harder than ever for artists and other members of the counterculture to live in the city. These are the very people, mind you, who helped spark the region’s technological revolution. And that’s saying nothing of the struggles felt by teachers, social workers and other non-tech workers struggling to stay afloat as housing prices skyrocket. [...] [C]ity officials and outdated statutes are as much to blame as tech companies

I know plenty of brilliant women, but they don’t work in that field.” ~Dilbert creator Scott Adams /// "3. Sexism, discrimination, and old-boy networks make technology an unfriendly place for women.

BBC News - Numbers of the year 2014
This is the amount that the UK's Office for National Statistics (ONS) estimated that prostitution contributed to the economy in 2012, following a decision by the EU that prostitution and illegal drugs should be counted as part of a country's Gross Domestic Product. The ONS estimates that: about 61,000 people work in prostitution in the UK the average cost per visit is about £67 each prostitute sees about 23 clients per week, working 52 weeks a year - in total about 1,200. Multiply those figures up and you get £5.7bn (which is $8.9bn, or 7.3bn euros).

My first and last time at the Crunchies — TheLi.st @ Medium — Medium
At the Crunchies, comedian T.J. Miller, a star of the show “Silicon Valley” (which I watch and love), threw out a bunch of playful zingers in his opening act. But then at one point, he engaged with a woman (Gabi Holzwarth) a few rows in front of me by calling her a “bitch”. She responded increduously, “Did you just call me a bitch?” He then said, “Bitch, Asians aren’t supposed to be this entitled in the U.S. … Is this bitch from Palo Alto?” The audience laughed nervously. I was so uncomfortable I wanted to leave, but of course I couldn’t given that our award was coming up. [...] At Crunchies I saw a woman get called a "bitch" onstage, then I did AOL TV & the host mocked me for being pale and made fun of my purse. [...] [ << Show of insecurity by taking the cheap road.

Lena Dunham: Why I Chose To Speak Out
via https://www.facebook.com/sheryl/posts/10154894457320177 // "I was ready to admit to the ways being sexually assaulted has shaped my sense of self as a woman entering adulthood, compromised my emotional security, and haunted me even during the most joyful periods of my life. I hoped I might inspire others to share, and that forming these connections would assist us all in healing. [...] I have had my character and credibility questioned at every turn. I have been attacked online with violent and misogynistic language. Reporters have attempted to uncover the identity of my attacker despite my sincerest attempts to protect this information. My work has been torn apart in an attempt to prove I am a liar, or worse, a deviant myself. My friends and family have been contacted. Articles have heralded “Lena Dunham’s shocking confession.” I have been made to feel, on multiple occasions, as though I am to blame for what happened."

Why Anne-Marie Slaughter thinks the next phase of the ‘Women’s Movement’ must be a ‘Men’s Movement’ (Video) - Bizwomen
You may know Slaughter from her 2012 viral story in The Atlantic titled " Why Women Still Can't Have It All." Many of the thoughts expressed in that article — that superhuman qualities are required to be both a perfect mother and a top professional. [...] Slaughter said workplaces need to be "customizable" so employees feel they can work to serve both their family in a caregiving role and the company in a competitive role. Men need to be allowed the same flexibility as women, she said. "We've revolutionized women's lives over my lifetime. If you're going to move women into the workplace, you have to move men into the home to get real equality. We haven't changed men's lives in nearly the ways we've changed women's." Slaughter's advice to women and men is to build a career through interval training, taking time to work very hard at your job and then slowing down to take time for your personal life, reminding everyone that it's not all about an immediate race to the top.
