CAIRO (Reuters) - Six Egyptian men arrested for “promoting sexual deviancy” and “debauchery” on social media will be subjected to anal examinations ahead of their Oct. 1 trial, Amnesty International said on Saturday.
Is this a Muslim thing? Don't judge now. It's a rainbow, etc., etc.
“In 1971, the year that we set the beginning of The Deuce, I was 11 years old,” co-creator David Simon recalled. At 17, he spent the summer in New York while working at an uncle’s warehouse: “I can tell you that, while the city felt electric and volatile and amazing and, from its debauchery to its culture, it felt like an incredible place, it was also dangerous as hell.”
I remember being at the 14th St. subway station in what must have been the late 1970s, very early in the morning. There were a few other young male persons there, looking predatory. I walked away and they followed. That was very scary. I guess I came out of it all right. It seemed I was getting myself into situations like that far too frequently when I was a young 'un. That's one thing I don't miss about my youth.There must be parts of NYC that are still like this, but now you'd have to look for them. Back then, there were lots of streets that had that palpable sense of danger about them.
A new Yahoo Finance poll suggests the NFL has an enduring problem on its hands. Nearly 62% of 9,056 respondents told us they plan to watch less pro football in response to the anthem controversy. Thirty-six percent said they plan to buy less NFL merchandise, and 32% have chosen not to attend a game they would otherwise have gone to.

Althouse: "The Black student population at Cornell disproportionately represents international or first-generation African or Caribbean students."
When presented with a list of Medieval accessories and articles of clothing, one in four respondents selected “capes and cloaks” as the item of attire they wish people still wore on a daily basis. From there, men and women were divided on their preferences. For example, 20% of women would love to see dresses with long trains come back into style, in comparison to only 6% of men. Data shows that men, however, are most interested in feathered hats returning to the mainstream (13%).

However, our support does not come without reservations about the process. The composition of the committee is primarily faculty members, and they may not be close enough to student life. Although their input is welcome, the weight of the decision should rest with deans and administrators who are trained to have student social life under their purview. Moreover, as we have opined in the past, we wish it was possible for administrators to better distinguish male final clubs and sororities. If the committee seeks to combat exclusivity and foster belonging, arguably sororities can provide a supportive role by giving women a social space on campus.
Obviously, for men and women to be equal, women must be privileged.
