Two-Thirds Of Younger Women In Ontario Are Living With A Mental Health Condition, Survey Suggests

Two-thirds of younger women in Ontario are living with a mental health condition, a new survey commissioned by the Ontario Association of Social Workers has found.

The survey of 1,265 adults found that 44 per cent of respondents either have a diagnosed mental health condition or believe that they are living with an undiagnosed mental health condition.

But among younger women ages 18 to 35, the percentage of respondents who said that they were dealing with mental health challenges was much higher.

The College Dating Divide

Few life decisions are more consequential than who we decide to partner up with. Yet in a previous era, Americans made these critical decisions very early in their lives. Today, Americans are waiting longer to pull the trigger on marriage and increasingly foregoing marriage altogether. This is due in large part to the fact that women are less economically dependent on men. Women also face far less societal or familial pressure to get married than they once did. These changes have transformed the dating landscape but may also have created a rift between women with a college education and those without in their partner preferences, priorities, and expectations.

Unfortunately, rising selectivity in dating and partner selection comes at a time when more men are falling behind. In his book, Of Boys and Men, Brookings scholar Richard Reeves argues that young women demonstrate a far greater “appetite for success” whether in academics or in their career aspirations. The result is more Americans, both men and women, going it alone.

Psychotherapist: I Warned About Sam Brinton, the Nonbinary Biden Official Now Arrested for Theft, but No One Listened

A licensed psychtherapist who testified against laws banning so-called conversion therapy says he warned Americans about Sam Brinton, the non-binary Biden administration nuclear official who is facing charges for allegedly stealing two pieces of luggage at two separate airports.

Naomi Wolf Eloquently Deconstructs the Terms Dis, Mis, and Malinformation

The first principle in battling against the Alinsky crew is to not to accept their terminology.  Controlling language is a specific tactic of the professional political left.  We used to call it labeling, but modern leftists moved beyond labels into the creation of new definitions.  Modern leftists now use two different strategies depending on their target: (1) create new words, the traditional labeling; and (2) redefine existing words.

In this interview Naomi Wolf is one of the few people I have seen who correctly starts her discussion by dispatching the linguistics and framing her own baseline argument.  All politicians and candidates for office should watch how Wolf responds to the first question from Tucker Carlson, and then makes the better argument.

Those Who Chose Shaming Over Science

Original Article By Gabrielle Bauer At Brownstone.org

For the first many decades of my life I don’t recall anyone calling me a selfish idiot, much less a sociopath or a mouth-breathing Trumptard. All that changed when Covid rolled in and I expressed, ever so gingerly, a few concerns about the lockdown policies.
