Sex Tourists?

In Toronto Star this morning was this article (with somewhat misleading title "Cuba’s most horrifying episode of child sex tourism resulted in a girl’s death" - a not un-reasonable assumption being Canadians are somehow involved - they weren't).

In reading the article we learn a few facts - but it is poorly constructed:
  • 10 Cubans and 3 Italians have been found guilty in the death of a young 12yo Cuban girls who was admittedly prostituting herself.  Of course this is terrible on many fronts.
  • Female (Feminist?) Defense Lawyer acting for the family does not deny the girl was engaged in prostitution - and that many girls have sex at age 12-13yo! Noting that in the Communist paradise “The only thing never rationed was sex,” Excuse me? Perhaps this is part of the problem?
  • The Star throws in a wild slander against Canadian men:
Canadian, Spanish and other male tourists are flying regularly to the communist-ruled island to have sex with minors, a joint investigation by the Toronto Star and El Nuevo Herald has found.
Oh?  How many? That is in the next piece - part of a series entitled "The Ugly Canadians "that claims Canadians are major contributor to this sordid activity.    Thank-you Toronto Star!

Then watch this local Nigerian News report of young Nigerian women discussing - lightheartedly perhaps - how many boyfriends they have and tell me why Men are always to blame for misunderstanding if women exchange favours or sex for security or money.

Why men should NOT marry

This is in opposition to a young fellow who suggested it is in Men's interest to marry.   I like the response below as it flattens alot of the presuppositions.  

Both are well augmented with numerous supportive links.

CBC finally gets 1994

Last week CBC aired this interview with Dr. Warren Farrell - an outstanding Mens Rights Advocate since the 1980's.  His last and most comprehensive book "The Myth of Male Power: Why Men are the disposable sex" was first published in August 1993 (paperback in November 1994).

Dr. Farrell was in Canadian news recently due to a hateful confrontation at UofT in November.  The ugliness of protestors there only reflected on them as I can not think of a more decent, gentle, respectful yet intellectually challenging speaker than Dr. Farrell.

I believe 1994 marks the height of Feminism in the West.

What I find remarkable is that it has taken 20 years for someone at the CBC to read this book.

CAFE has had talks by Barbara Kay, Lionel Tiger, Warren Farrell and  last week -

GirlWritesWhat has this recent post on "Why Feminism is Hate" and Vlog on how/why she started.

Warren Farrell's involvement with the call for a White House Council on Boys and Men.

He points out (at 05:10 mm:ss) that the lie of "Patriarchy" is that men make rules "against women" - when in fact men compete against each other (aka "White Knighting") in order to serve women (aka "Damsels in Distress") and gain their love, affection, praise and trust.

Navy Seal controversy of Jesse Ventura

Ok, Jesse Ventura seems to have lost ALL CREDIBILITY in this controversy from last year (Jan 2012) but which I only learnt of recently because the former SEAL Officer Chris Kyle was killed by an psycho in Texas Feb 3, 2013.

1) Jesse Ventura has not gone out of his way to disabuse anyone of the notion he was a SEAL.  This seems to be misleading.

2) Witnesses have confirmed Kyle's claim that he knocked Ventura down in a bar in Texas.

3)  Ventura is known as a "Truther" who believes 9/11 was a Government Conspiracy - and invites people to prove him wrong.

4)  Chris Kyles wrote book about his experience as a sniper - in part to get support for soldiers who return.

5)  News that Chris Kyle was killed at Gun Shooting Range. And shocking 911 Call by his sister.

6)  His widow makes speech at Memorial Service.

And finally - Ventura craps all over himself.
