Dating ‘expert’ Says Men Should Always Pay for the First Date

This is the 21st Century right, so it’s okay to split the bill on a first date, right? Not according to TikTok dating ‘expert’ Nelly, who, in a recent video that has massed more than 85,000 views, explained why she thinks men should always foot the bill on a first date.

Speaking on her TikTok channel @ask.nelly, she explained how, “Men should never let a woman pay for a first date because if you’re asking a girl out and then going Dutch, it just shows you’re cheap, you weren’t raised right, you’re not chivalrous and you’re dating outside of

More Women Are Saying No To Motherhood. Will Society Ever Listen?

Child-free women are having a bit of a moment in the media.

“Why many women are intentionally opting out of parenthood,” one recent Today Show headline said. “Choosing ‘child-free’ does not equate to a dislike for children,” the subhed added — lest we think these women are baby-disinterested jerks.

Last month, The New York Times ran a photo series by Zoë Noble, a photographer in Berlin who’s capturing the lives and stories of the “consciously child-free.”

“People ask me ‘Why not?’” one woman featured in the story said. “Why don’t we ask the other question: ‘Why are you choosing

Woman dies from blood clot after Covid jab

The Therapeutic Goods Administration says the benefits of the AstraZeneca vaccine far outweigh the risks after a NSW woman died from a blood clot in the brain.

The TGA says the 52-year-old who died was among four new clotting cases linked to the vaccine.

The other three involved a 77-year-old man from NSW, a 70-year-old man from South Australia, and an 87-year-old South Australian woman.

There are also four other cases with a “probable” link to the AstraZeneca vaccine, the TGA said. They are a woman, 50, and two men, aged 83 and 91, all from NSW, and a woman,

Brain fog, dryness: This OB/GYN wants to normalize menopause

A few days after Dr. Jen Gunter learned that she’d made the New York Times bestseller list with her new book “The Menopause Manifesto: Own Your Health With Facts and Feminism” ($18.95; Kensington Books), the obstetrician and gynecologist was back on Twitter and Substack discussing poop, dispelling myths about the safety of the COVID-19 vaccine during pregnancy and weighing in on Naomi Wolf and Christiane Northrup’s ban from social media after they were accused of distributing misinformation about vaccines.

Gunter, who is known to her 340,000 or so Twitter followers as its resident gynecologist, has always been unabashed

Grass-fed beef not best source of omega-3 fatty acid | Lifestyles

DEAR DR. ROACH: I have a question about omega-3 fatty acid intake, either through fish consumption or by dietary supplements like fish oil. Apparently, many American diets are deficient in omega-3 fatty acids. One possible reason is that most American beef cattle are fed primarily on corn rather than their natural diet of grass, leading to meat that is low in omega-3. Most arguments for increasing omega-3 fatty acid intake seem to be related to cardiac health. But omega-3 fatty acids are also important for brain health. I’m wondering specifically if there might be a correlation between these dietary-induced low

Opportunity knocks for unlikely quartet in Paris

After a wildly unpredictable women’s singles at the French Open, four Grand Slam semi-final debutants will line up on Thursday with a golden opportunity knocking.

Not since the 1978 Australian Open have a quartet of players reached the semis of a women’s Grand Slam for the first time.

Chris O’Neil, ranked 111 in the world, won the title on that occasion although it was a relatively weak field with few of the top players even bothering to play the event.

The same cannot be said this year and whoever out of Russia’s Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, Slovenia’s Tamara Zidansek, Czech Barbora Krejcikova

The dark threats and sexual abuse women gamers endure

Not a day goes by, says Sunpi, a high-profile gamer, that a man she doesn’t know sends her a dick pic, or asks if he can.

And the abuse she endures is often violent in its language. “I’ve had people online harassing me saying they’ll murder me and murder my family if I don’t give them attention”.

The sexual abuse and sinister threats Sunpi has faced are sadly by no means unique. Woman in gaming routinely suffer sexual harassment, aggressive abuse and sometimes even graphic threats of rape and murder from male gamers.

Bela: Prantik Basu’s documentary is a persuasive instance of preservation

There is an instance in Prantik Basu’s Bela — a lived-in documentary rooted in a titular village in Purulia, West Bengal — where a woman tries putting a heap of dry leaves on her head. The rigour of the act reflects the preciseness of a habit. Her hands move like responding to a cadence. And then, exhibiting a lifetime’s worth of training, takes a wooden stick and adjusts her balance. The moment plays out with such lucidity that it casts a spell, unlocking at once the gift of Basu’s artistry and the reward of watching closely.

A similar sense of
