Gillette’s Dull Blade
Occam’s Razor: A Principle of Philosophy When trying to establish the cause of a phenomenon whose cause is uncertain, the possible cause requiring the fewest assumptions is the one we should accept as most probable. Gillette’s Dull Blade: A Principle of Sexism When trying to fix blame for problems between the sexes, the explanation involving the most negative stereotypes of men is the one that signals the most virtue.
Gender Policy Pink Wash In the White House
Even before they were inaugurated, President Biden and Vice-President Harris created a White House Gender Policy Council and staffed it with people who either know or care little about the gender policy needs of men and boys. It's bad for the nation, a huge missed opportunity to advance equity for men and boys in the traditional female domain as much as we have done for women and girls in the traditonal male domain, and a failure to address unfortunate female behavior toward men and boys as much as we have done with unfortunate male behavior toward women and girls. This video suggests how we can stage a virtual demonstration at the White House against the gender bias in the White House Gender Policy Council and shows how you can take part with little effort, time or expense. Submissions for photos as suggested in this video are closed.

Angry White Women, Angry White Men
Angry white men are the face of White Supremacy, but angry white women participate in important ways that are less dramatic and visible outside of their social networks.

Understanding Angry White Women's influence over men may be a key to alleviating racial strife and alt-right extremism. Women's influence over men is discussed as an integral part of the Matrexx.
What Do Trumpism and Feminism Have in Common?
Trumpism and feminism operate from the same playbook. Designate a scapegoat to rally your supporters, always attack, never apologize, disrupt events you don't like and act like you know everything. With side-by-side examples, this video shows how Trumpism and Feminism have much more in common than they will want to admit. = = = Professor Kathryn Clancy presentation URL: To view Professor Clancy’s entire presentation (running time 13:16), along with others from the NASEM symposium, see vimeo.com/showcase/5561695.
The Big Q: Committed Relationships With Women?
There should have been, but there never was, a negotiation between men and women about how the latest stage in achieving gender equality should be arranged. The benefits flowed entirely in women's direction and more and more men are refusing to participate. What will it take to persuade women to sit with us at the bargaining table? This video suggests that an alliance between two unlikely groups of men might help move women in the right direction.
