How one design agency is fighting for feminism I am a feminist. My penis doesn't preclude me from being one. I feel pretty confident in saying this, because my liberal politics, my good grooming and the fact I do all the cooking and cleaning in my house mean that I'm a living paradigm of Modern Man. I have assimilated the acceptable bits of the feminine, but remain confident in my manhood because, let's face it, my Mrs will never earn what I do, and even as she progresses up the career ladder, she's gotta take time off to look after the kiddies…

When Women Wanted Sex Much More Than Men In the 1600s, a man named James Mattock was expelled from the First Church of Boston. His crime? It wasn’t using lewd language or smiling on the sabbath or anything else that we might think the Puritans had disapproved of.

Indians mark first gay sex ban anniversary with increased discrimination report LGBT activists say the plight of sexual minorities has worsened with more instances of discrimination since the past one year when the Supreme Court recriminalized same-sex relations. About 500 LGBT activists under the umbrella of the HIV/AIDS Alliance organized Dec 11 a public hearing to discuss the consequences of the ruling and review cases of discrimination that has taken place since the Supreme Court’s verdict exactly a year ago. The ruling has increased vulnerability of gender and sexual minorities to violence, stigma and discrimination, media quoted the activists as saying. James Robertson, executive director of Alliance India pointed out that sexual minorities are often denied opportunities and that any families reject them and push them further to society’s margins, increasing their vulnerability to a range of harms including HIV.

The Danger of the Monster Myth Tom Meagher One of the most disturbing moments of the past eighteen months of my life was hearing my wife’s killer form a coherent sentence in court. Jill had been murdered almost six months earlier, and Adrian Bayley’s defence team were presenting a rather feeble case for a four-week adjournment of his committal hearing. Bayley appeared via video-link as I sat flanked by two friends and a detective. The screen was to my right, mounted high up and tilted slightly towards the bench. It was uncomfortably silent apart from the occasional paper shuffle or short flurry of keyboard clicks.
