So the defendant, Johnson & Johnson, are going to play the arsehole card in this case. Good to know.

I can bet you that if this was a penis implant, we wouldn't be having this fuckwittery. Shades of Endometriosis diagnosis all over again...

After the litigation defendant for Johnson and Johnson Steven Finch, Senior Counsel is found wanting in the balance of blind Justice upon his argument for the integrity of his high paying client, will he have learnt his moral lesson?

I don't think so.

In some alternative universe, if the Socceroos defeated, in rapid succession, the reigning world champions, the penultimate world champions and the reigning Olympic gold medalists, to win a major international title, can you imagine quite the degree to which that would be all over the media?

Meanwhile. In the real universe. This. Happened. -

Matildas stun Brazil to win Tournament of Nations with 6-1 victory

Quote:
Australia's Matildas have managed one of their most significant achievements with victory in the Tournament of Nations following a 6-1 rout of Brazil in Carson, California.

The Matildas' triumph, highlighted by doubles to Lisa De Vanna and Caitlin Foord, will sit alongside their Asian Cup win in 2010 in terms of its importance on the international stage and it is sweet revenge for their quarter-final exit via penalties at the hands of {eventual gold medalists} Brazil at last year's Rio Olympics.

Their undefeated run through the round-robin tournament included a historic first defeat of {current} world champions United States and local rival {2011 World Cup winners} Japan ...


Just saying .

Nice article.

Men’s Rights Activists Blame Entire Gender for Their Own Failures

Quote:
When I decided to dive into the online world of MRA’s (Men’s Rights Activists), I knew that what I found would make me angry, make me laugh, and make me sad. The main question I ended with, though, was have any of these guys ever met an actual woman, much less an actual feminist?

For those fortunate enough to be unfamiliar, MRA is the most generic term for a loose conglomeration of dudes that feel that it is they, the men, who are truly oppressed by women, who use their wanton temptress ways to control men with their strategic deployment of vaginas towards everyone but these self-proclaimed “beta males.”

MRAs are by no means a monolith — there are many factions and MRA adjacent pockmarks of the internet, each with their own set of grievances. There are the PUAs (pick-up artists), who can’t muster enough personality to get laid and convince themselves they can manipulate women into sex. There are the incels (involuntary celibates) who are convinced women as a cabal have decided to exclude them from sexual life, rather than just acknowledge that women don’t want to date jerks. There are also the MGTOWs (Men Going Their Own Way) who have decided they should exit society rather than risk interaction with women. These various groups mix and mingle in largely unregulated communities such as Reddit and 4chan, complaining about their romantic failures with women, blaming their professional failures on “diversity,” and even contemplating enslaving women as brood mares in a manner not too dissimilar from The Handmaid’s Tale.

The typical MRA-given description of the archetypal ‘woman’ is narcissistic, manipulative, and abusive. Think Dangerous Liaisons. By the raw numbers, I would assume that at least a few of these sociopathic femme fatales must exist somewhere, but I’ve never come across one in the wild. Intriguingly, MRAs further profess that this sex criminal mastermind is simultaneously stupid enough to be manipulated into sex, and also incapable of succeeding in any profession requiring technical or leadership skills. MRAs are further convinced that most — if not all — claims of sexual abuse, assault, and/or harassment are false and that women are waiting to trap men and forever ruin their lives with calculated false accusations. While it is difficult to determine the exact numbers, according to research cited by the National Sexual Violence Resource Center, roughly 2 to 8 percent of such claims are false, while 63 percent of victims never report their assault at all. No matter to MRAs — they dismiss any research that contradicts their world view as fake news; just further evidence of how deep the women-centric conspiracy really goes.

Too bad we can't get a link. Looks like there's a lot of nasty bullshit in that article.
